    Buckingham Palace staff are going down in my estimation, some will never be mollified if their complaint is unfounded and manufactured and this will ensure many more will be villified and victimised in the future by opportunistic racists pretending to be offended

      It can safely be assumed that Charles referring to his mentally scarred and deficient son as ‘My darling boy….’ suggests that he thinks all this ‘wretched nastiness’ will go away in the same way as replacing a leaking pen.

      He could not be more wrong or deluded, and monarchy as an institution will pay the price. Historically royal families have used various methods to rid themselves of prodigals – Writs of Attainder among them.

    Now that men can be wimmin and wimmin can be men what’s the point in teaching biology in schools.

    If all it takes is a man to say he’s a wimmin and he can give birth and where you can get cancelled if you disagree then all answers on a biology exam paper will be right and wrong at the same time.

    How long before everything else we are taught is in for this same wokeness.
    If I say I can fly then that means gravity doesn’t exist and if anybody disagrees with me they can get cancelled.
    If I say 2 + 2 = 7 then I am right and you’re an ‘ist if you say I’m wrong.

    What’s the point of all education if all it takes is somebody to disagree to make some new reality.

    If you accept that a man is a woman then logically everything else is up for grabs.
    How can the woke be taken seriously believing this rubbish.
    The sad and amazing thing is that this woke crap IS being taken seriously.
    I believe clever minds are behind this and are manipulating these woke idiots who are too stupid to realise they are being used.

      Marxism is all about disruption of generally accepted truths to render opposition as dissent, the end game being that the only truth is the truth of the red party generals. That’s what is going on.

      Trans, gays, lesbians, blacks, climate loonies, etc. etc are being used as pawns in the game.

      George Orwell predicted it!

      I agree wholeheartedly, if a man can be a woman and a woman can be a man we may equally say that global warming is global cooling and global cooling is global warming. With a little bit of double-think we can say and believe any point of view, and even the opposite point of view at the same time. I love big brother me. Another Victory gin please.

    Phew ! All’s well that ends well. Another biased ‘report’
    Ngozi Fullonani or whatever her name is. (I mustn’t ask where it came from) has received a full apology from Lady Hussey after they met at The Palace. Ms Fulani was not wearing a tribal outfit.
    A statement said Ms Fulani had accepted the apology and recognised the comments had not been malicious, but didn’t say why she previously raised the nasty vicious(oh no it wasn’t) treatment of her.
    In a joint statement issued with Ms Fulani, Buckingham Palace described Friday’s reconciliation between the two women as “filled with warmth and understanding”.
    Lady Susan has “pledged to deepen her awareness of the sensitivities involved” and the Royal Households would continue to “focus on inclusion and diversity”, the statement said. Reconciliation ? what ? There was no apology from Ms Fulani for forcing Lady Hussey to resign, recording (probably) conversations in The Palace, running to the Media pretending to be distressed and upset and thereafter embarking on a huge round of media appearances and running a highly dodgy non-inclusive charity, which is currently not operating.
    So there we have it Race baiter 10 Common sense 0.


    • G says:


      No doubt some here have mentioned it before so, I’m sorry to duplicate the point.

      Could it be the, “….tribal outfit.” is representative of the area of the UK this woman comes from”? With the density (mental as well as physical), the garb could be a result of Darwinian evolution taking place in the UK. Who would have believed it?


  5. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I wonder if Fulani recorded this apology.

    • vlad says:

      What a disgusting image the BBC have rigged up! Did they do the same for Tim Cook when Apple directly helped the CCP crack down on the heroic protestors in China? Did the BBC even report his actions or the protests against him?

      The revolting UN, EU and BBC were all fine with Twitter while it meddled with elections, censored free speech, colluded with corrupted Security Services and generally did the bidding of the Democrats. But when Musk bans a handful of journalists for violating Twitter’s rules on ‘doxing’ (thereby endangering him and his family), those same organisations erupt with indignation!

      The leftists and the globalists are throwing everything they have at Musk, whom they want dead. I hope he can take the heat.

        For proper, truthful news seekers, the Black Broadcasting Corp. has become an irrelevance. Selected YT broadcasters now provide virtually all the accurate, unbiased coverage one would need.

  8. Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

    From Jihad Watch and ‘The Religion of Peace’ site, originally under “BBC secretly reforms Arabic news output” by Ben Bloch in the JC on 8/12/22.

    “The BBC has introduced a catalogue of reforms to its Arabic news service — including dropping the controversial terrorist sympathiser Abdel Bari Atwan as a pundit — in the wake of widespread criticism of the corporation’s output, the JC can reveal.

    The moves are taking place behind closed doors, even as its Director-General continues to publicly defend Mr Atwan, who has expressed sympathy for Sir Salman Rushdie’s attacker and defended the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli Olympians.

    “Team leaders in BBC Arabic have told editors to stop using him [Atwan] because he said some problematic things on BBC English,” a BBC source said.

    In response to an open letter, signed by 36 parliamentarians and public figures, demanding the broadcaster drop Atwan after reporting by the JC and media watchdog Camera, BBC Director-General Tim Davie insisted that using the pundit was “in the public interest”.

    However, the JC can disclose that behind the scenes, Arabic editors were informally told to drop him. The source added: “We used to have him on a lot, but we have been told not to.”

    … … … …”


  9. vlad says:

    Perhaps the Palace felt they had to do this, especially at this most delicate time with the Wicked Witch of Monteshitshow waiting in the wings to say, “I told you they were all a bunch of racists”.

    But it still turns my stomach to see Lady Hussey grovelling to smirking Princess Punani… and the BBC loving it: “Ngozi Fulani receives personal apology at Palace”




    • Zephir says:

      Now, lets have a forensic examination of every penny in expenses and salary this one has received via her charity and how much in grants this non inclusive charity has received and from whom this public money has been awarded.

      Including a full disclosure of the grant criteria for EVERY grant (which in general require grants to be for the benefit of all and not just blacks) and how and when this money has been used.


      • vlad says:

        Sadly, I doubt anyone will dare criticise Punani now that she has “royal approval”. Furthermore, any official investigation into the finances of her “charity” would be painted by her side as the Establishment wanting revenge and, of course, waycist.

    “Investigation after two boys found dead in London home”
    What’s going on here ?
    Will we get the full story ?


  11. Zephir says:

    In the year 2022, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United States, and said, “Once again the earth has become wicked and overpopulated, and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans, thy sons and their wives.”

    He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, “You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights.” Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard — but no Ark.

    “Noah!” He roared, “I’m about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?” “Forgive me, Lord,” begged Noah, “but things have changed.

    “I needed a building permit. I’ve been arguing with the inspector about the need for a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I’ve violated the neighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision.

    “Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark’s move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.

    “Getting the wood was another problem. There’s a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls — but no go!

    “When I started gathering the animals, I got sued by an animal rights group. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodation was too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space. I am required to apply for 834 different licenses to keep wild beasts on private property.

    “Then the EPA ruled that I couldn’t build the Ark until they’d conducted an environmental impact study on Your proposed flood. Further, the pitch to water-poof the ark has been banned by the EPA as inimical to the environment.

    “I’m still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I’m supposed to hire for my building crew. “Immigration and Naturalization is checking the green-card status of most of the people who want to work.

    The scaffolding to build the superstructure is not OSHA-approved and is forbidden to use except for private structures less than 5 cubits.

    “The trades unions say I can’t use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark-building experience.

    “To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I’m trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species.

    “So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 100 years for me to finish this Ark.

    Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky. Noah looked up in wonder and asked,

    “You mean You’re not going to destroy the world?”.

    “No,” said the Lord. “The government beat me to it.”

  14. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    I hear a lot about the Reform Party and what it’s going to do next election and how it is rising in some opinion polls. Its the best thing since sliced bread say some, they’ll teach the Tories a lesson.
    Then I look at by-election results including the Stretford & Urmston and I see the came in a lowly fifth place with 3.5% of the vote which is exactly what the Brexit Party got in 2019.
    I ask again, does Reform have a strategy for fighting the next election other than standing a candidate everywhere?
    The Brexit Party was an elite group largely created by Farage who didn’t like dealing with common people such as he found in Ukip.
    Apart from signing people up for the party does it really have any grassroot activists or any strong constituency organisations?
    Under the FPTP system by-elections are the best opportunity small parties have for exposure.
    I am aware that the last few by-elections have not been in the most promising areas for them but they should be aiming for better results than they’ve been getting, There wasn’t a huge list of other right wing parties this time. They need to get a promising third place result at least.
    Are they really interested, I ask again, or are they controlled opposition?


    • JohnC says:

      The problem I have is that whenever I see the candidates they put forward, I often think I wouldn’t trust them to run a bath.

      People of the calibre of Nigel and Laurence Fox seem few and far between.

      Of course it’s very possible (and indeed likely) that others who are competent are being very deliberately supressed by people such as the BBC so we don’t know about them. I am under no illusion that we live in a true democracy these days.


    • G says:


      I now have another problem with Reform. I made the point, here, a month or so ago, that if you sign up to membership, you also sign up to the, by no means obvious (weasel words), to allowing them to automatically take your subs. annually. At a time when they provided a telephone number so you could talk to a human being, I was able to confirm my suspicions were correct. So, what can a paid up member like me expect? A membership number? Perhaps a membership card? No, nothing. So when you are presented with ‘Sign In’ on the website to contact them, you have no means of doing so. Then you can use the tailor made emal form. Done. Having explained that despite signing up as a member, I have no details you get the reply:

      “Thank you for your feedback”……………….

      We are told that Tice is a businessman. No “Businessman” worth his salt would allow that that I have explained above, to take place.

      Vote Reform? You make your own mind up. Run the country?

      Time for another look at UKIP.

      Will the WEF be on the ballot next time round? I realise that it’s agents living in No. 10 & 11 will separately be.

    Capitol riot: Committee to seek charges for Trump – reports

    An absolutely typical BBC agenda article.

    They take a complete nonense agenda story like this, dress it up however they can to make it seem credible and not the partisan charade these trials have been since the start, then run a lengthy article re-describing the whole original story to try and make it current again.

    Just like they did with George Floyd and Boris with ‘Partygate’. Again and again and again.

    The BBC seem to think they are the world’s reference for political ideology and are using their vast empire (paid for by the British public) to attempt social engineering on a global scale.

    It’s absolutely typical of the arrogant, intolerant, ideology-driven extreme-Left and is why they have murdered so many millions throughout history if they ever got absolute power. They are absolutely certain that THEY are right and think they are superior to everyone else.


  16. Fedup2 says:

    According to ‘yesterday in parliament ‘ the lords ‘debated ‘ the future of the BBC yesterday – Friday – the last sitting day before Christmas .
    The timing of such important subjects is aimed to bury it ( see the vaccine harm debate a day or two earlier ).

    Anyway the clips played praised the BBC . Either there were no negatives – mention of bias – or they were just not played . Which would be very BBC .
    What a waste of taxpayers ‘ money those undemocratic corrupt air thieves are ….

    Listen to Mark Steyn’s Q&A from yesterday 16 December.

    Mark has been absent because he has had two heart attacks. The first was in London which he didn’t recognise as such; the second was in France. He will be in France over Christmas and the New Year because he is not allowed to fly. He says he needs to have a ‘rethink’ in order to avoid stress.
    He says one of the most stressful things about modern life is that “what is known once you know it cannot be unknown.”

    I suspect he may have to give up The Mark Steyn Show on GBN for health reasons, although he doesn’t actually say so.

    Get well soon Mark.
    “Stay safe, Stay free, Stay well.”


    • JohnC says:

      “what is known once you know it cannot be unknown.”

      That is so true. Now I know all the little tricks the BBC play, I simply cannot watch or read any of their output now without their dishonesty and hypocrisy glaring out. It’s absolutely relentless.


    • Fedup2 says:


      Thank you very much for the update

      This is VERY SAD NEWS and i suspect that the GBNews show is no more .
      A combination of the subjects – the failure of technical support and attacks by various Far Left Agencies BBCOFCOM BBC lackys must take a toll .
      I dont think Mr Stein can be replaced . Ive seen Lawrence Fox a few times but he doesnt seen happy on live TV ….
      Paki rape gangs – vaccine companies – The Far Left BBC – must be happy about that news …

      Get well Mr Steyn – do what you have to do .


      • Doublethinker says:

        Completely agree. Years of fighting for the truth to be known has very likely contributed to his heart attack. Mr Steyn was by far the most truthful of a commentators in the media. His fearless exposure of the establishment cover ups of rape gangs, adverse impact of Covid vaccine, immigration , climate change , WEF and the rest can’t have been easy . He is a hero and I hope that he will make a full recovery . Whether it will be wise for him to return to the battle is a question for him and his medics. But he should rest assured that he has done more than just about anyone else that I can think of in the cause of free speech and debate.


      • Rob in Cheshire says:

        I agree that Mark Steyn is the best thing on GB News. Laurence Fox was a good actor, but seems to find hosting a talk show a real challenge. Mark was unique, I hope he will be back.

  24. Up2snuff says:

    TOADY Watch #1 – the BBC do not bother to hide the truth any more

    There is a ‘hotline’ from senior Civil Servants to BBC News. If there was a PM with a grip, we would have a security services-led search to find the CS responsible. Disgraceful! I seem to recall that CSs have been prosecuted in the past and one was famously jailed. Cannot remember who.


  25. Fedup2 says:

    Interesting piece in one of the papers about Mickey Lenin Lynch of RMT fame criticising the BBC for Right Wing bias during his interview on `today with HRH meeeshall ….

    The point – obviously – is for anyone to think the BBC has a Right Wing bias either doesn’t listen or doesn’t listen carefully –
    Ok – so it was the normal infantile interview – with Hussain – unusually – using the interruption method so loved – where interviewees are not given the time to explain themselves ( see the GBNews remedy )

    Perhaps the BBC uses criticism from the Far Left as that false shield of ‘we must be okay because both sides attack us “.

    This – of course – is the biggest lie .now the weather


  26. Doublethinker says:

    The incompetent and lying ex DG of the BBC Lord Hall of Birkenhead has called for a household levy to replace the License Fee. He claims that this is key if the important principle of universality is to be protected.
    In translation he means that the License Fee isn’t being paid by enough people and the trend of the refuseniks is growing worryingly significant. Therefore the BBC would prefer to be paid out of general taxation so that people simply couldn’t refuse to pay a License Fee as they now do. Universality is the weasel word that the BBC uses as cover , ie we provide something for everyone so everyone must pay even if they never watch what we provide for them because they hate it.
    I suspect that a Labour government will bow to the BBCs request , demand, and scrap the LF and replace it with a charge out of taxation which can’t be avoided. But until then we must show our contempt for the BBC and all its works by refusing to pay the LF.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      If people only watch Nigerian TV rather than the BBC, will they still have to pay the tax? And how will they know the difference?


    • Up2snuff says:

      Double, that will mean the BBC is still beholden, as Mick Lynch famously claimed in his interview with HarshMistress Mishal, to ‘the Establishment’. The only way to make it truly independent is to make the BBC a subscription service.


      • Doublethinker says:

        Yes but the establishment is now and has been for at least three decades leftist and is now woke. The BBC fits hand in glove with the establishment and it being funded out of taxation will be fine as it will never be asked by the liberal leftists in charge of the country to do anything it doesn’t agree with.
        The abolition of the LF also removes any opportunity for ordinary folks like us to demonstrate our dislike of the woke messaging carried by the BBC and refusal to accept Wokism in any of its manifestations.


        • Up2snuff says:

          Yes, Double, what you write is true but it still doesn’t stop people from Mick Lynch stating that the BBC presents ‘the views of the Establishment’. After all, Mick Lynch, as a well paid Communist Shop Steward (aren’t they all, well paid that is?) is definitely Far Left and can view the BBC as being Far Right even though the BBC are woke LeftyLibbySocialists.

    I do enjoy laughing at the blatant BBC incest:

    World Cup 2022: Marcus Rashford, Richarlison and Kylian Mbappe feature in best goals

    Complete with pictures of the poster-boy BAME.

    Then I discover it’s the BBC’s OWN list. A bit like them giving themselves awards for excellence. No racist or sexist discrimination involved at all. Honest.

    Rashfords goal wasn’t even that good : just a set piece free kick which the goalie very nearly got a hand to. I suppose he had to be included because he is black so they used the best one they had.

    How ridiculous they are.

    Glitter balls edition

    Seems that big name banking corporation has perhaps emulated Elon Musk’s strategy at Twitter of clearing out some of the slackers and the deadwood: Goldman plans 4,000 job cuts to boost profits (FT) – on the other hand, perhaps Lockdowns with staff phoning it in over Zoom for a prolonged period taught bosses they could do just as well without half their employees?

    UK civil service please take note.

    Mr AsI warned our daily office commuting refusniks would have their comeuppance soon enough when the inevitable recession hit and corporations realised they could do without – or outsource overseas – to tens of millions of reasonably computer-savvy English-speaking cheap at the price Indians etc.

    The phrase spend it while you’ve still got it would rather pervert the FT’s long running aspirational feature How To Spend It – but that paper still assumes readers are keen to get away about this time of year for a winter break – so the pink pages investigate: Best Swiss white for the slopes

    The Guardian meanwhile is all over the Columbian white (allegedly): ‘Drugs’ found after parties at Truss’s government home – maybe we now have some explanation of her legendary bizarre cheese speech. Even so, come on Guardian, her political career has been well and truly snuffed out – there’s no need to rub it in.

    Good to see the Daily Mail going for the BBC with both barrels: Inside Bumper festive TV magazine. Why spend £5.25 on the Radio Times when the best TV listings are FREE today!

    Nice, bit I don’t like this ever-encroaching word ‘festive‘ when they mean Christmas

    The Daily Mirror puffs a BBC show and goes with a Strictly story

    The Daily Star meanwhile offers: Glitter free in weeks – not some free decorative baubles on offer – sadly this refers to the unwelcome very un-festive news that Gary Glitter has done his time.

      Don’t you find this Far Lefty White angst about coloured folk just tired? ….. it’s as though they see ‘them ‘ as kiddies in constant need of tax money and ‘guidance ‘. They are – after all – free individuals – innit …

          AISI, you missed a glorious opportunity here: “Even so, come on Guardian, her political career has been well and truly snuffed sniffed out …. ”

          There! Fixed it for you.

          On the subject of our previous PM and newspapers, I actually shelled out from my precious pension for a copy of the i newspaper in order to discover what that lefty leaning paper claimed was the cause of the demise of the Truss Premiership. There was an interesting mock-up picture to illustrate the article of Truss gurning away while sitting on the House of Commons.

          The ends of her feet showed that she may have a severe cardiovascular problem. Either that or she had bought some new shoes for her Constituency campaign battle around the UK with Rishi Sunak and the dye had come through the leather to stain the end of her tights.


          • Fedup2 says:

            I did ponder a bit about Mary Elizabeth Truss …. Her behaviour when she was heading out of number 10 was surprising … passive .. no emotion .. zip . Yet anyone taking the long walk – that I can remember has shown at least some emotion ….
            Maybe she just had her ups and downs …

            Bad form that secret stuff within such buildings should be made public though . But I suppose they employ so many SPADs that the number needing pharmaceutical support must be sizeable –

        I reckon it’s their dna.

        For a start, the reason they are very good at running is that while whitey was getting industrialised they were still living off the land which meant that the slower ones would be getting picked off by the lions and other predators. The ones who could run fastest got away and passed their fast running genes on to their offspring.

        The reason they don’t appear in the swimming finals is that they very sensibly kept out of the water which was full of crocodiles and other nasties which would eat them if they popped in for a 100 meter swim. The ones left were the fast running, water avoiding ones.

    Perhaps that is what the BBC, the EU and various other parties including Whitehall exactly want since June 2016. “The BBC has learned” (see my TOADY Watch #1) that our PM, Rishi Sunak, may be going a little cold on the idea of a never-ending proxy war being fought by the West in Ukraine. The BBC are bothered! The BBC worry that it might encourage Joe Biden to think of running in 2024 and to dial back on his support for the war in Ukraine in order to reduce the burden on the US taxpayer.


    The EU. You can checkout any time you want but you can never leave


    • Fedup2 says:

      Really can’t equate the US having any regard for the views of the UK EU … ( see Afgee)


      • Up2snuff says:

        Fed, the EU is fighting the proxy war in Ukraine but has dragged NATO into it. Then there was Boris Johnson who saw it as ‘a willy-waving exercise’ to give away our military kit. Hope it was our surplus military kit.

        The US is part of NATO, is it not? The clue could be in the initials. 😉


        • Fedup2 says:

          Afgee was a NATO operation . But it didn’t stop the US pulling out of their own misguided operation – being dumb enough to repeat ‘the Great Game ‘… I worked in a think tank before deployment to Afgee to try to figure out what success would look like .
          No one wanted to go – it was just to keep Bush happy . No one could figure out what success looked like – apart from minimum casualties – where we failed .

          Never again – but it will happen …. Our position was more shameful than the yanks because we had done afgee before ,,,,
          Ukraine is useful to give the Russians a taste of defeat / attrittion – but the cost is awful …. I still worry that something really bad (nuclear) could happen either by accident or by lunacy – the outcome might be so quick that we won’t know what happened …. Before we exit the stage …

    The BBC spinning hard with this story for some reason….

    ‘Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has asked for an assessment of the progress of the war in Ukraine, BBC Newsnight has learnt.

    Senior figures fear the PM may be taking an overly cautious approach as the war enters a key phase.

    One Whitehall source likened the exercise to a “Goldman Sachs dashboard” examination of the war and how UK military supplies are used.’

    ‘Senior figures’…’Whiteall sources’……who they? What are their motives? Military support for Ukraine or smearing the Tory leader?

    Is it just not sensibe to assess what is going on in Ukraine and the threat still posed by Putin?

    Interesting tone of voice of the news reader…..managing to convey great disdain and disapproval.

    Similar attempt to smear Truss with unfounded stories of ‘white powder’….the BBC insists there is no suggestion Truss herself took drugs but…you know….the stink will stick…as intended. Who ‘found’ the powder and then apparently did a swab test on it? Rather bizarre.


    • tomo says:



      I wonder what would be found if the countertops in toilets at BBC premises were swabbed and tested – maybe even random drug tests for employees ?

  35. Fedup2 says:

    I don’t know – or want to know – stuff about trannies or sex changes or other un natural stuff . But it is unnatural – suddenly going against social ( biological ) norms established across decades – centuries – such as ‘shared loos ‘ and referring to so called non females/ males as ‘something else ‘ takes us into lunacy .
    Same with so called ‘marriage ‘ involving chaps and chaps or non chaps and non chaps … but at the end of this – which I’ve mentioned here before – someone will marry their dog …


    • Terminal Moraine says:

      Fedup five years ago this was a sign of things to come: “India Willoughby: Is it discriminatory to refuse to date a trans woman?”

      “The majority of straight men are worried about what society thinks of them if they date a trans woman” […] “Toxic masculinity makes them violent and rude about their attraction.”

      “So being unwilling to date on the basis of someone being trans, rather than on the basis of individual stimuli is something I would personally call transphobic.”

      BBC hiding behind one of their beloved questions to help shape the ‘public debate’ (i.e. mass of confused, ungrounded fantasy thinking). I’m amazed at how quickly it has all taken root. Turns out the deconstruction of normative behaviour isn’t so difficult to achieve, if the organs of power blast it 24/7 into a demoralised people.



  36. Zelazek says:

    The BBC reports that there will be a minute’s silence for the Solihull lake boys at various football matches in the Midlands.

    I ask myself why this kind of thing is on the increase. Some tragedy happens that has nothing to do with football (but perhaps is headline news) and clubs feel obliged to acknowledge it with all the solemn rituals at their disposal – black armbands, minute’s silences, minute’s applause. Football clubs can be arbitrary and even bizarre in the events they choose to mark as many other tragedies, big and small, local and international, happen all the time and are ignored.

    I ask myself why this ritualistic behaviour that can appear to be virtue-signalling on a grand scale is happening. I believe it may be that although we live in a secular society with a materialist outlook, people still feel within themselves a sense of the sacred and a need for ritual.

    But I also say that churches and not sports stadiums are the proper arenas for public rituals to mark the passing of the deceased, the most sacred silent spaces in which to reflect and grieve and pray for the repose of the departed soul.


    • Zephir says:

      I went back to the frozen lake I visited a day after the kids died, as in my previous post about this, with the purple haired moron mother letting her kids and dogs still run across the ice despite the news.

      So a week later after all the coverage and what do I see? Kids (i assume) have built a snowman in the middle of the lake obviously walking around on the ice to gather snow.

      So I think what we are dealing with here are the terminally thick as shit.

        • Up2snuff says:

          Fed, I was lucky I had parents who cared enough to warn me and there was water deep enough to drown in nearby. They taught me how to rescue as well, ie. not walking on to ice but spreading weight by going face down on the ice or getting a ladder from somewhere that would have the same effect. Then came the big freeze of ’63 and the gift of a toboggan. 🙂


          • Fedup2 says:

            Up2 – I – too – had a bit of advice as a horrible kid about playing on ice. These days the term ‘parent(s) is very loose as the State takes over more and more responsibility … in fact … I think the majority of those being bred now are subjects of the State – rather than their parent(s) – with an exception for Muslim offspring – who answer to a supra national authority in Mecca …


    • Up2snuff says:

      Zelazek, as unbelievers in anything they have no hope beyond the grave; therefore the deaths of those young lads has to be marked in some way, and a ritualistic ‘minutes silence’ is not too onerous.


    • Fedup2 says:

      You say the unsayable – the clapping – the minutes silence – the doing stuff at x minute into a game – and the kneeling – are all some …. Infestation of wokeness .. replacing – as you say – the more appropriate place to commemorate loss . But I suppose it’s the Godless in search of .. God …

    Long puff-piece on Today bigging up the BBC and presenting its future as the BBC would like to have it…..Lord Hall Hall pushing the idea that it should be funded by a poll-tax on homes…rather than just asking people who use it to pay for it. This is of course worse than what we have now…everyone will be forced to pay for something they possibly don’t use and likely abhor…..and of course it will raise even more money than the BBC gets now.

    Naturally we heard that the BBC was vital for democracy and all that….’as shown by its coverage of covid’….hmmm….you mean the coverage, lobbying, that pressured the Government into disastrous lockdowns the consequences of which are now ripping through our society? Not to mention the lies told about vaccines and the demonisation and savage vilification of those who didn’t want a vaccine and were perfectly justified in their fears and concerns?

    We heard that as the Tories had been in power for so long it was only natural that journalists would be criticising them….and proof of the ineffectiveness of the BBC bias was that the Tories were in power….accept of course Boris was ousted by the BBC as was Truss…and Sunak is under fire even today…….the Tories who had an 80 seat majority are suddenly way behind Labour in the polls…and much of that loss is due to the torrent of negative and biased coverage that the BBC pours out….helped of course by stupid, arrogant and treacherous betrayals of lefty-Tories back-stabbing their way to political oblivion not caring about Party or country just hating Boris and Brexit.

    The BBC ‘report’was basically just quoting Lord Hall Hall’s piece in Prospect which was of course just the usual guff about the brilliance of the BBC and how much better it is than any other broadcaster.


    Hall tries to dismiss the one big justification for the BBC that you always hear from other BBC employees…it produces stuff no other broadcaster would produce…because it is not commercial…although that is open to debate…

    ‘Sometimes the BBC’s role is to offer services the public need that the market has failed to provide. But to confine it to that would be to ignore one of its important functions. The BBC also makes markets. ‘

    That is the sole justifiction for a licence fee guaranteed income…using it to provide non-profit making programming….paradoxically Hall claims all this ‘investment’ in non-profit’ actually makes a profit down the line….

    ‘The BBC is the single biggest investor in original UK content. Every pound it invests generates more than £2.60.’

    Sooo….is that not a case for commercial companies to do the same…and thus indeed removes the case for a guaranteed income?

    Naturally commercial companies do invest hugely in original and highy successful content…just Hall doesn’t seem to remember that for some reason….and they are young….start-ups in comparison to the BBC which has been around nearly a century….they will grow and diversify their content over the coming years.

    Hall says…

    ‘We should set up a consultative body to help the government of the day work out what is the right amount of public funding the BBC should receive. I know—and more’s the pity—that ministers will never give up the power of setting the amount.’

    Hmmm…well…if you had a subscription service you’d be free of government funding and would then have to stand on your own two feet and prove all the claims you make about how much the Public loves and trusts you…..as you resist this maybe you just don’t believe your own hype and tripe.

    Hall states….

    ‘ The research service Enders Analysis makes the point even more firmly: “the BBC is the most trusted and favoured news source in the UK and the world.” ‘.

    That’s the problem…that trust is inherited and also generated by ‘capturing’ young minds with fun programmes before subjecting them to the political indoctrination inserted into programming later on which they will then swallow hook line and sinker from ‘trusted’ Auntie Beeb which they have grown to love and believe.

    Hall says..

    ‘In the era of the internet and social media, I believe that trusted and impartial news services are needed more than ever. ‘

    Hmmm….no…the internet has provided us with vast amounts of information and news that the BBC et al have lost control of…the BBC essentially had a monopoly on news, information, and could shape the news how it liked and no-one could question it….but now people can challenge the BBC narrative with so many sources of information available….and more importantly can use the internet to voice those challenges rather than just moan to the wife or down the pub.

    The BBC hates this which is why it puts so much effort into trying to discredit ‘social media’ with the intention of pressuring and justifiying politicians into taking control over the internet and the information ‘allowed’ to be published on it.

    Ironically Tim Davie wants the BBC to become an ‘on-line’ service only…..which may be another reason for trying to neuter its potential rivals…but also suggests that subscription funding is viable…


    ‘“The internet has stripped away the historical distribution advantage of having half of the TV channels or FM frequencies. In this world relevance, like trust, has to be earned.”

    Tim added that the BBC needs to move to an internet future with greater urgency, and operate with fewer brands. The BBC would be the brand with content available in one place.’

    Note that that ‘trust has to be earned’…..and there’s the rub…the BBC’s trust is inherited from past glories not earned at all by today’s media princelings and princesses…any neutral observer who has a broad knowledge of BBC programmiing will know it is highly biased and political…and not to be trusted on practically any issue.

    The BBC is great in theory but in practice it has been hijacked by left-wing extremsist who use it to push their own agendas on race, climate, history and politics.

    We should all have the choice whether we have to pay for this dangerous and untrustworthy marxist propaganda front.

    One way this woke crap affects me is I love reading fiction.

    Waterstones (Wokeerstones) and my local bookshop are showing me a new phenomena:

    Men have suddenly stopped writing books, only wimmin write books now, apparently. I can only find 2 books by, for example Lee Child’s 26 Jack Reacher books (100 million books sold)

    Whereas my new interest of “rural noir” British rural thriller type atmospheric books, I can only find two from one of my favourite authors and NONE from another.

    But wimmin writers there are SEVEN from bloody Elly Griffith for same strange reason amongst fifty or so others by wimmin.

    And before anyone accuses me of sexism for no reason, I have before me one of the aforementioned books by dear Elly (£9.99) it takes me a LOT to give up on a book but her blatant feminism and sexism has driven me to distraction and I have finally given up in frustration.

    We are meant to be reading a thriller from rural Norfolk, and we have page after page after page of our heroin, (a single mother forensic archaeologist assisting the police) and her difficulties looking after her bloody baby.

    And we have a police constable variously referred to as “sexist” and elsewhere “racist and homophobic”, “always eating and not putting on weight” (cardinal crime for a fat feminist) “always taking about football” etc etc and of course, the long suffering sensible, intelligent, wimmin police colleague (who refuses to taker guidance from the other despite being newly qualified and challenges him wherever possible).

    Had enough of the feminist sexist endless diatribe and if I want a book from a male perspective, where I am not reminded every chapter of male sexism, racism, homophobia and the struggles of single wimmin with babies and endless wimmin characters with “natural authority etc etc) I will have to order online, forgoing the pleasure of browsing shelves in a bookshop.

    I looked at some reviews and she also has a habit of trashing christians in other diatribes, sorry stories.

    God help us if black men learn how to write fiction books that will spell the end of white authors, 100 million sales will nor matter an iota, although we have a few in “non fiction” (ironically( telling me all whites are racist etc etc.

      I have a rule – and I read a lot of books . I-hardly ever buy a new book – and with a bit of patience I can find something I want to read in a charity shop – shame the DVDs are disappearing though .

      As for wimmin authors – just no. Wimmin plod – no – wimmin sports – no … and if you look at the make up of the BBC national radio I’d say 70% is aimed at wimmin by wimmin…. 4X is the worst ….


      • Zephir says:

        Agree but i have read so many over the years that i have kind of run out but found the British rural noir quite appealing but relatively new so there are very few available in charity shops
