Thanks for the good laugh at that, Eddy. I have just discovered that it is hard to type while you are laughing.
Happy Christmas everyone.
ts probably been used before and I missed it?
ItTalking of which, did any of our useless church leaders lecture us about taking in more migrants this year, as they usually do?
(from the safe comfort of their Lambeth Palaces and Vatican Walls)
Wishing Merry Christmas to all you good people on BBBC and let’s hope 2023 doesn’t get much weirder (not taking bets though).
If you’re worried about where Britain is headed… relax, have a mince pie and a glass of wine and forget your troubles. Integration is turning out just fine.
Another good one, thanks Richard.
Nadolig Llawen !
That’s Merry Christmas to you all from the western parts of Great Britain🏴🇬🇧
And I will wish you all …… MELE KALKIMAKA ! ( I hazzard a guess that some of you have tried to get your tongue around the Sky Ad sung by Bing Crosby). For the unitiated its Merry Christmas in Hawaiian.
Everybody have a merry ‘whatever doesn’t offend you’ day!
Moggie – like wise – I seem to be on day 3? Or 2? Of manflu ( so bedridden- no mass ) …. The internet says that if you read this message you should be wearing a mask …. My Turkey remains fridge bound ….
That one day of the year when No News and absolutely no BBC in any form …. ugh ..sniff …
After 12 hours in bed I found – by accident – thar the Amazon Alexa thing does a nice relaxing ‘sea noises ‘ – it doesn’t -however -have chaps speaking Albanian …
Have a happy holiday – chrimbo- festive season or that former religious festival …er Christmas …
In my region, all the shelves selling flu medicine are virtually empty
I always keep a stock , cos I found it very effective.
Around here most people have had this special cold that lasts a very long time
instead of ending in a week people end up with days of catarrh coughing.
Yes, I’ve just written what you’ve described. All my family have had it. And Senetra Gupta? Wrote a good article explaining it – herd immunity debt.
Those poor kids who’ve died from Strep A – very few (none?) died from Covid without Co-morbidities.
Get well soon Fed!
I’ve got a never ending cough…onto its third month. All part of the legacy of lockdown.
Thank you Looby – I reckon it’s the price of coming back to Blighty in the week using the crowded Piccadilly line and full up BA flight .
. I was flu jabbed about 2 months ago too …but the timing of infection is exquisite….
Flu jabs often don’t work, Fed. I can explain the science. But it is a long tale, too long for Christmas Day.
Fed, get well soon. Quite a good Christmas service on BBC R4 from Bath Abbey including quite a good sermon from the Bishop of Bath and Wells if you can tolerate a reference or two to refugees.
Am happy to recommend it as a bit of BBC for a change that was good.
Media told us there wouldn’t be food for Christmas dinner, is that true ?
I popped into Morrisons last night at 4pm , they had a mountain of sprout packets reduced to 8p
Mind you Aldi and Lidl have had 19p veg most of the month.
There didn’t seem a shortage of veg
..the discount bread was piled high.
and down the road in Lidl 3-3.5Kg turkeys were £10.
Half price turkeys at Iceland on OAP Day or the day after, Stew. Apparently there’s a glut!
Sometimes I think shortages are down to the buyers. I went to our local Aldi , no more mince pies. 5 minute walk away, Sainsburys nearly every aisle with a trolley of mince pies.
gb123, think that shortage of mince pies at Aldi was down to Good Housekeeping and various newspapers rating Aldi’s 2022 offering as the best. Oh, and the price has been reduced by 10%, too.
Happy Christmas everyone! Regular visitor here. Thanks for providing these excellent posts and reviews of those issued by our beloved National Wokecaster.
Merry Christmas everybody .
I hope you have a healthy and prosperous New Year .
In the BBC`s case , healthy as in cutting all the Gramscians out , prosperous as in no telly tax , but voluntary payments and it becomes the unbiased organisation it purports to be so we really do want to keep it .
Happy Christmas everyone and it is good to have something BBC to recommend
BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 and only one today, probably – this is outstanding
Mind boggling and a great reminder of Genesis Chapter 1 – God spoke: “Let there be light” And it was.
Join that with the Prologue to John’s Gospel and you have the nub, the very centre of Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all.
Not BBC but I was idly surfing YouTube and came across one of those reaction videos covering the 2014 Sainsburys world war one Christmas Truce ad. What made me think was this was only 8 years ago. No wokery, diversity etc. Just a simple message.
Merry Christmas to one and all…however the BBC bias continues regardless.
Violent riots in Paris after Kurds were shot by a racist.
Surely we should be urging people to contain their anger, stop this backlash and protect the real victims here…other white racists in France. They didn’t shoot anyone and it would be unfair and unjust to take out our anger on them…they are the real victims here.
Left-wing insults to White supremacy ideologies, and demands for crackdowns, help drive a wedge between racists and the Western multi-cultural societies they live in.
Targeting and victimising the racists plays right into the hands of the Far-Right. Wittingly or unwittingly, anti-racist bigots have become recruiting sergeants for a group they profess to hate and claim to want to destroy. The anti-racists, to borrow a line from Lenin, are the Far-Right’s useful idiots.
We must listen to and understand the concerns of the racists and bring them into the fold rather than treat them as intolerant and bigoted outcasts who hate our society, its values and beliefs…unity not division is what we must sow.
“ Rwanda: PM Rishi Sunak refuses to be drawn on Rwanda figures”
A Message to Sunak and your Tory MPs , we are being invaded ! You have placed the human rights of the invaders before the human rights of the people of Great Britain.
The Conservative MPs will face extinction .
I question your use of the word ‘Conservative’.
mogs, they use the label as, may I put it this way, ‘ a flag of convenience. ‘ a.k.a. pirates!
Merry Christmas all.
Get well Fed.
Thank you for the Cymraeg Christmas wishes Taffy, I try to learn a bit now and again.
I’m hoping the new King doesn’t spoil his first Christmas message with climate change posturing.
Thank you Lucy. – Diolch .
The language of the ancient Brits.
Isn’t great? The UK TV media make you believe that
you are in the Caribbean with presenters, reporters ,
programmes, adverts. Just pin up an image of a palm
tree in your lounge. Have a bottle of rum next to you
watch the TV . And you are in the Caribbean !!
Meanwhile the heathens among us attacking Mo Sala for having an Xmas tree on social media
Apparantly they aren’t in the UK, but the thing is that if the Iranians can manage to celebrate Christmas and the Islamic version of the nativity is virtually identical to the Christian one what are they on about?
DO they even understand the religion they claim to follow ?
Just watching sounds of the seventies and a clip of Lord Reith call the TV. ” A potential social menace of the first magnitude”
I’ve just over-dosed on White Christmas (soon to be renamed Christmas of Many Colours), and yes we all know the story AND the songs, but when you focus on the dancing of Vera Ellen, Danny Kaye and the chorus, it is sublime. None of today’s musical theatre dancers can hold a candle to them. The speed of the tap dancing and the timing is a joy to behold. In fact when you watch the musicals from that era ie West Side Story, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, and the Bob Fosse style, its so far removed from the clumping we see on London stages by ‘sturdy’ dancers. The choreography, directors and dancers like Astaire & Kelly will never be seen again. Sadly.
Incredible that over half the population in this country proclaim not to classify themselves as Christian. But to me almost 100% ARE celebrating Christmas – which makes no sense at all !!! What the hell do those numbnuts think Christianity means ?????
(ps Get well soon Fed – we need you. Stuff the turkey – in the sense of stuff everything else, and have fish fingers like me)
Brissles – thank you – I’m trying to work out which is the better Christmas film – ‘Scrooge ‘or ‘It’s a wonderful life ‘- although someone the other day suggested the latter is derived from Scrooge …
The ‘restored ‘ Scrooge – which was on yesterday – is a great job …
Hi, Fedup2 – I surmise (hope) you may be talking of the 1951 Alistair Sim version of ‘A Christmas Carol’, which I believe to be peerless. I do however, concur that it’s a difficult choice between that and the Frank Capra/James Stewart/Donna Reed ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.
I regret that I haven’t been able to contribute much over the past few months (busy), but have kept tabs on the blog whilst in ‘foreign parts’, and it’s encouraging that, despite all the focus of our glorious Broadcasting Company to diminish any criticisms, the website is still flourishing.
I wish all it’s contributors and lurkers the very best ‘compliments of the season’, and encourage all to keep up the efforts regarding the BBC.
Hello Richard D – it’s good thar you still keep a watching brief on the site – as – I am sure – many others do – including those junior officers of The State monitoring ‘community tension ‘ – as well bbc staff of course .
As the better film – A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim is the better one – if there was a need for comparison – because it has that innocent early 1950s complexion and a full on performance …
The agenda pushing is endless
Someone switched on BBC
They said ..”What is this stupid cartoon ?”
Me “They have to make up new cartoons, cos the old ones are apparently racist”
Within 30 seconds this was confirmed by the dialogue
Cartoon characters “Oh look there is a baby !”
Red characters “Is it a red one ?”
Blue characters “Is it a blue one ?”
All “On look it’s neither red nor blue
.. it’s a purple baby … how wonderful !”
…. Prog ends , then into a heap of BBC commercials, before the “King’s” message.
Oh Smeds and Smoos is a book used in school’s today
Is there a conspiracy theory about Twitter that didn’t turn out to be true?
3:10pm Channel 5 The Canterville Ghost
.. oh a BBC Studios production
So some script adaptions since the original Oscar Wilde script
– The Harem family are still American
– New characters the : Gypsy Family
they are tormented by ruffians and the American boys help them out
.. Strangely BLM people were not selected to play the ruffians. They were all white
The American dad makes a special symbol of inviting the Gypsies to his land, cos the British have always been horrible to them.
– Now at the big Lord’s house
.. So far all the white British characters are obnoxious
The American daughter has outraged them by entering the local steeple chase, even though it’s for males only cos it’s so dangerous .. she’s a law expert so has waved the Equality Act at them
Now the young Gypsy girls are showing to be child geniuses.
The wokesupremacist producers are virtue signalling like hell how non-racist they are
.. yet the script stereotypes any white upperclass person as either scheming or dim.
I suppose this is what “modern audiences” want.
The Christmas speech.
The King seems to have learnt not to behave as he did as a climate freak Prince. However, he did get a bit in about all faiths, and there were several hijabs doing good things
‘The religion of peace’
Vile backward thinking, more like.
Liverpool star Mo Salah is criticised by Muslim fans for his picture of a Christmas tree alongside his wife and daughters with ‘#MerryChristmas’ on social media
Salah criticised by Muslim fans for Christmas tree post
Salah’s tweet has been slammed by Muslim supporters, most of which were sent from outside of the UK. One claimed: ‘I shall be unfollowing you and stop supporting Liverpool because you are celebrating Christmas with the Christians.’
Another said: ‘I’ve been a Liverpool fan since I was born but I will stop supporting the club because you are celebrating Christmas with the Christians. You’ve just lost me as a fan Mo Salah. Goodbye!’
bit boring cos it’s the same story every year
Mo Salah tweets a Christmas pic
#1 Yep a few very big Middle East accounts do reply in Arabic with something that seems negative.
#2 News Media fail to mention that Salah gets half a million likes.
At the Antsy replies get just 5K, 11K and 17K Likes
Not boring, we have active muzzie anti Christians some from abroad BUT that implies some within OUR society, this is significant.
HOW did they get here ? if legally then we have to rewrite the immigration requirements and regs.
At least 10 years before they get a UK passport depending on behaviour.
Too absurd for even the presstitutes at BBC North America to report ….
.@ITVnews well ratioed here for their #GASLIGHTING
cos people know,
basic food is still very cheap in UK supermarkets
human food cheaper that cat food tins.
Media love doing #PovertyPorn
Our little cat used to cost us around £15 per week, far from cheap.
Does that include all the food uneaten that she turns her nose up at like ours ?
All that meowing, a quick glance and off she stalks, tail high.
Oh yes I know it well…
‘Desperate’ woman turns to warming up cat food as she can’t afford to eat in cost of living crisis “
Was that the lady that was later admitted to hospital with an injured her back after trying to lick her back legs ?
I’ll get my coat.
ITV news have a dramatic headline
“EXCLUSIVE Footage captures moment armed police officers stop fox hunt saboteurs”
Is it news ? Or is it PR
The article makes it clear the balaclava-ed hunt sabs were filming when the police arrested them and that they were released 10 hours later
BUT it does name the date
So it is PR
The article then goes into a lot of anti-hunting PR
Sure fox hunting is illegal, and AFAIK if you have a problem with foxes, shooting them is allowed.
and if you want to do a drag hunt with dogs that is legal.
BBC Christmas Crackers joke:
appeal for more BBC seasonal jokes!!
Valeriia and Anastasiia hope to bring some of their Ukrainian Christmas traditions to Wales this year
Instead, why aren’t they looking forward to experiencing a traditional Welsh Christmas …
“Anastasiia Patiuk and Valeriia Pivensay are studying in Wales ”
I’m skeptical, but go on… studying what?
“Both Anastasiia and Valeriia arrived in Wales in October, after receiving a scholarship from University of Wales Trinity St David (UWTSD), that enables students from Ukraine to study the postgraduate award in global citizenship and sustainable leadership.”
Wild guess – Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum has it’s grubby fingerprints all over it.
“Anastasiia and Valeria will continue with their studies at Lampeter for the next two years, but both say they want to go home to Ukraine ”
BBC has yet to interview a Ukrainian that wants to stay here.
They tweeted the press release 4 times and got very little impact.
It’s not the only university giving away scholarships to Ukrainians
Keele does as well.
AS ever do Magic Unicordns pay for these subsidies ??
Nope the money has to be taken from other people
So people paying £9K for their own degrees are getting less of a service.
BTW A friend is hosting a 60 y.o. Ukrainian couple
On the Friday he arrived the man met a Latvian guy in the pub
and started working on the Tuesday repairing trucks with him, at a nearby truck yard.
The Keel scholarships are limited to about 10
and don’t specify you have to do a WEF type course
Yeah mental health issue ….
Xmas in Paris.
This is how we all knew it would end.
They will turn the west into the violent shitholes they came from.
Make no mistake, these protests are not about 3 people being murdered. They are about Muslims being murdered by an Infidel.
I see nobody is paying much attention to how the nutter has been released from custody to a psychiatric facility.
Yes they are pretty quick to reel out the “mental health issues” when its a muzzie killer, not so fast this time though
Oh, to be in Paris, now Islam has taken over.
Import the third world, you get the third world.
30 odd years ago these nutters would be deemed worthy of a psychiatric order. Now it is normal. Also I find the ethics of these so called ” surgeons” operating on physically normal patients to change sex highly questionable.
The medical world has many very dubious doctors who are nothing more than narcissist money grubbers. You only have to look at the cosmetic surgery sector where huge numbers of women are persuaded to pay for dangerous and uneccessary operations, often badly executed.
NHS bosses want interview panels to justify why they have hired a white person over candidates from ethnic minorities
NHS bosses are forcing interviewers to explain why they hired a white person
The Daily Mail can reveal this is happening at the Royal Free in north London
Interview panels must write to the chief exec to explain their decision
Frustrated staff have called it a ‘tick-box exercise’ adding to the bureaucracy
one wonders at the ethnic makeup of upper level NHS management…
What msm newsrooms are rammed with might also be interesting, in %ages.
Guest – 4? Disconnected twitters ? Any way – on ( 1. ) don’t you just love those ‘connection ‘ diagrams where some journo is partner of a spad who is related to various politicians and hid father to a PMs kids ….or a BBC type
And they wonder why we talk about the ‘swamp ‘….
…who is ‘pippa’ related to ?
Answer – Tom somebody is her husband – he is head of communications at the department of transport £ ching ching ….( the swamp lives )
Disconnected? Without the Indian subcontinent ladies none of these would have been possible.
YAB seems still to be with Paul O’Grady in Venice.
Guest – I mean I only wanted to comment on the first tweet thing about the swamp … but it’s interesting that pippa crerer is married to a senior civil servant ….the swamp …
“Man hires man he knows and a trusts for important role necessitating close personal working relationship shocker 🥱”
“The Political Secretary to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is a senior official in the United Kingdom Civil Service who advises the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.”
Then there is a list of past ones.
So Sunak should have hired another person as his PR person
– Perhaps moved Tom Whitehead the Head of Communications of the Department for Transport (DfT) *Pippa Crerar’s husband*
– Or perhaps moved Joe Cuddeford from Deputy Director of the Cabinet Office *ITV Paul Brand’s husband*
No one knows which inside sources leak to these 2 lefty journos.
Hope you are feeling better, Fed.
How does a Hindu stand as Godparent to a Christian child?
On Toady, a transport report.
The BBC are so obsessed with public transport that even when the scale levels are mentioned by them they fail to comment on it and follow the logic.
Train strike. No Eurostar services. 20,000 people affected.
Versus…with equal weight on the BBC……15 million expected car journeys expected today.
And how, pray, are the potholes in your area?
As a rider of a 300cc Yamaha scooter I enjoy the challenge of potholes – it adds to the ever present fear of death or serious injury offered by car drivers – but worse – the third worlder food delivery psychopaths who have bought their Mediterranean driving skills to Blighty ….cyclists of course have moral superiority over all road users ….no need to stop at red lights or on the road when the pavement is there …..
Fed, some of us cyclists stop at red traffic lights, maybe ‘cos I’m a driver, too, or maybe ‘cos I’ve seen a few traffic light accidents.
I know . I apologise – I was being cheeky because I knew the national union of cyclists would pull me up …
… as for the flu thing – I’ve been researching and apparently I am at ‘day 3’ which means best in bed ….
…. As for potholes and road surfaces – everyone would benefit from riding on 2 wheels to appreciate the level of concentration needed ….
Hope this comes out…
Fed, Uppers, is that – er – you…?
Di ‘Nallysis of this on BBC Diversity will be interesting.
Preferably live from Barry, Bill or Nancy’s seafront compounds.
Really gives you faith in the armed forces when you see raving lunatics like this in charge.
Is it “misinformation” to say the admiral is a fairly unconvincing tranny?
One like every 30’.
Speaking to a nation.
Though kids do sleep in.
All the rest are probs already on Mastodon.
Seismic change last gasp edition
The jokey tabloid Daily Star kicks things off after a brief hiatus and utilises its Though for the Day masthead feature this Boxing Day to muse: Is it over already… at least there’s footie
The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper now a firm favourite of BBC online news reviewers are quick to log 2022 as: A year of seismic change – and on the subject of sport it wonders how this tendency for sudden conversion, replacement and switches might manifest in football: Can Arsenal remain top guns?
The old joke is that such and such a club are just Christmas decorations – they come down in the New Year
But of course, politics is the overriding obsession of this left-leaning organ: How the Tories crashed – and why they may never recover The year in polls by John Curtice
The old Labour red top Daily Mirror gifts us: Football pullout INSIDE – wherein the cover story headline declares: It’s right there in black and white… Can Newcastle really win the Premier League?
Now here’s a telling insight into the mindset of your average football fan (read voter). They will moan and gripe about too much money in the game, foreign owners and the like… until or unless their team is bought by some oligarch or sheikh: Newcastle takeover: Sheikh made offer for Liverpool that wasn’t ‘credible or worthy’ Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan has reportedly agreed a £350million deal to buy Newcastle United – but it’s not the first time he’s tried to buy a major UK club (Mirror, May 2019)
The staid and stately old Telegraph is non-committal on this big issue of the day, not daring to call a winner, prefering to remain above the fray: Premier League set for exciting race to the finish
Matt is away – but we’ll excuse him this time and allow our favourite cartoonist this day off
Thinking of rankings… keep an eye on the BBC online news page subject tabs – they give us a quick rough and ready league table for the BBC news agenda.
Number one spot is held by Cost of Living – our 2022 Christmas decoration, if the outcome should follow the jokey football analogy
How many cute white girls in woollen beanie hats with pet cats and bedroom fairy lights has Getty Images licenced to the BBC – there’s an FOI request begging to be made?
Our BBC asks:
Should I swap my bedroom bulb for battery lights? – because of course our studenty young miss has just the one room to consider. No family, no kids, obviously.
What’s the best way to heat a room this winter? – and this young lady hasn’t yet met that inevitable black chap of her advertisers’ dreams – so has just the ginger moggy to consider as a dependent.
The Gunners may or may not remain top of the Prem – War in Ukraine comes in second of our BBC top news tabs.
Ukraine war: Drone attack on Russian bomber base leaves three dead (BBC) – and barely a mumour of anti-war sentiment voiced in western media. You have to hand it to them – they sold this one far better than Bush and Blair sold theirs.
The Daily Express masthead raises the Ukraine flag again – showing us their Christmas decoration of yesterday was very much a Christmas decoration in the terms of that football joke – forget Epiphany, that Express bauble came down on Boxing Day
Coronavirus comes in third place over there at the BBC but would appear to be dropping fast as a regime concern as reflected in the wider media: Last gasp for Covid data behind Lockdowns… “no longer necessasy” to issue updates on the R rate or on modelling projecting death and hospitalisation numbers (Telegraph)
Tellingly, the formely patriotic Times illustrates: The big quiz of the year – with our now humiliated former Lockdown policy promoting health minister pictured Downunder with a toad on his head. Fall Guy and prize Aunt Sally indeed. Scape Goat’s testicles for your bushtucker trial, anyone?
But if you thought we were now forever safe from the spread of that dangerous new virus – computer modelling – think again – computers are mutating into new varients for running our lives: AI cure for bed blocking can predict hospital stay (Times) – “Alexa, book me an appointment with my GP” “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that” or “Computer says no” – depending on your preferred cultural reference
They think it’s all over…? It ain’t yet…
Moderna to open vaccine research and manufacturing centre in UK… NHS patients to have access to next generation of mRNA vaccines and treatments… Company to establish a global clinical trials base, endorsing UK as a science superpower… Government and Moderna reach agreement in principle for strategic partnership (UK Government Press Release, June 2022)
Moderna and UK government sign deal to establish mRNA facility… the parties announced an agreement in principle in June this year… The centre is expected to offer access to a locally produced future mRNA vaccine portfolio against respiratory viruses… the centre is anticipated to have to capacity to make up to 250 million doses of vaccines per year. (Pharmaceutical Technology.com) – that’s got my shoulder itching already
As the second Witch in Shakespeare’s Scottish play famously declared as Macbeth returned for more dread prophesies of the future:
By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.
Thanks Asiseeit – I’m one of those idiots who try to ‘scope ‘ the likely events of the coming year….
1 Ukraine will run and run – unless they run out of bodies .
There is fear the nut nut will try to visit on the anniversary of
the invasion – 24 Feb … there will be serious navel gazing …
2 March means budget – and if oil/gas isn’t as priced as highly as predicted J Hunt might have some ‘give away ‘ money ( which means taxpaying mugs might keep more of their Money
3 with an election in 2024 sunak and co will have to appear like real people to con voters again – theme throughout the year
4 the war against wokery will be tough and bloody with many casualties – careers destroyed with a few words
5 Farage to fire up reform? Will it split the right wing vote ?
6 red labour will desperately try to behave itself and con voters into it being worth voting for – Starmer will try to appear human – tricky for any lawyer
7 crankie to create as many ‘constitutional crises ‘ as possible .
8 NHS says it’s now fully resourced and able to deal with all issues . It will be worth making 999 calls again
9 plod returns to law enforcement again – although you will still get a Fixed Penalty for ‘disapproved tweeting ‘.
10 the internet will be fully censored by the State – all website must pay taxes and only put out ‘approved comments ‘- it’s for public safety – you understand
11 nectar points will replace money
12 the community charge will be hiked by at least 10% for people who pay for it
13 those on benefits will be far better off than those who pay for them …
14 finally there will be a General Election somewhere using the Biden method – oh yeah – president trump will be charged and convicted with something to prevent his running again …
15 finally finally – the probability of a widespread war in Eastern Europe / south China – China / India goes up as time passes
I always like to watch the Christmas ghost story. This year it was “Count Magnus” by M R James, set in rural Sweden in 1863. Very well acted I thought, particularly by the black man playing a servant in the big house. I am assured they were common in mid nineteenth century Swedish country houses.
I see the London knife crime stats are in the Mail ….. more diversity needed there ?
There’s some weird data stuff going on
There is an ONS map page for CURRENT knife crime in the whole of the UK
And London is worse at 168 per 100K population
Birmingham at 118
However when the annual stats were published in August
lefties rushed to say
“WHATABOUT WHATABOUT West Mids, what about Cleveland they have higher knife crime ??”
They did by those charts, and there were sadly actual stabbings etc.
but maybe local police were more aggressive in counting than London is.
Croydon is the shocker really . What the hell happened to Croydon ?
It does make one wonder what the real numbers are like – I guess the numbers recorded are those where the stabbings are so serious as to warrant hospital
It looks like my borough is ‘mostly peaceful ‘ at number 22…
I wonder what the demographics of victims is… ?
Is it as simple as Vote Labour, get knives.
Anybody with Arabic reading skills out there?
The American accent makes me think we’re seeing the zealotry of a convert there.
Liverpool pub shooting
No description of shooter issued but description of car ??????????
Coloured car it was.
But don’t forget the nutter in Paris was white. We were specifically told that in the first article.
And up to now they can’t find any links to the far-right. Not sure why they would specifically mention that as well. But you can be sure they will keep looking.
The FTX cryptocurrency mess looks to have an unexpected twist beyond Ukranian money laundering and Biden campaign funding.
I read the hype about the “research” at the time and you didn’t have to have much / any relevant virology / pharmacology experience to spot a blatant attempt to monstrously skew a trial.
That SBF + his creepy drug addled pals from the Bahamas have been charged and bargains have been made – near zero attention is being paid to where the money went …
No doubt the ghosts in the bbc Xmas ghost stories will be giving everyone the willies.
All these deaths in the USA due to the arctic blast.
Strangely and very unusually the BBC are not putting this weather event down to global warming.
I think we need an in-depth analysis from Justin…..
Ahhhh…. Americans of zeal.
“ Most of the programme is devoted to Sarah Ott, a young American who implausibly says she used to be a denier but now sees the light.”
A bbc must have.
High temperatures: Global warming
Low temperatures: Climate change
Absurd partially informed posturing: Justin Rowlatt
The Daleks who control our Planet -by that I do not mean your elected representatives because they are pretty much superfluous to The International Socialist Agenda – worked out quite a while back that the term Global Warming just might not cut it with the masses when these poor buggers were forced to don their thermals to survive so it was decided to change the name of their mind control mechanism to Climate Change which of course can cover any and all conceivable weather changes, After all only a moron would deny that the weather changes. Very ingenious but I still ain’t buying and, hopefully neither will all of my fellow working class patriots.
Happy New Year to all.
What you need to know
Complete with sonic zombie knife from Croydon
Envy of the world.
I stand to be corrected but it seems to me the BBC is greatly under-reporting the ongoing riots in Paris by, ahem, enrichers.
Wouldn’t want to spoil the narrative that immigration is always beneficial, would we?
Right now, I wonder if Parisians are all thinking that “la diversité est notre force” as their cars burn in the streets?
Other countries are available.
Rather relieved our family is not based in an urban area o& diversity.
For some ‘communities’, that’s called shopping. Or reparations.
Up there with the ‘no Turkey or cocktail surges for Xmas’.
Frankly no news desk should survive the last year.
It’s ok because the ex twitter folk have gone back to their real jobs with the FBI ….
Seems to be a glut.
In Mirror world, too.
Anybody who is anybody, is finding that they are blocked by H from Steps
.. they’ve probably never interacted with him
but H is using a Stasi-like list
Such shunning is school bully tactic. The bullies intimidate the other kids into turning their backs on a kid , just cos he is friends with the “wrong sort” of people.
Maybe the shunned accounts should wear a Yellow Star so everyone else can easily shun them too.
Stew – reminds of that judge line ‘who is H and who is ‘steps ‘?
Oh the anti Brexit blocklist
The Brexit Blocklist@BrexitBlocklist
We block inauthentic, troll, disinformation, and otherwise harmful accounts so you don’t have to.
One wonders if there’s a masterlist of blocklists being retailed to interested parties?
Telegraph leads on the death of a 22 month old girl turned away from a busy A and E without basic tests ( allegedly )
….. .. they can’t even establish cause of death until the holidays are over –
don’t forget to clap
I feel SO guilty. I WOULD try to clap but my fingers are so frost bitten that I honestly feel that they would shatter like a beer glass against a pub wall were I to make the attempt. SORRY.
I see the DT leads with the energy companies larcenous antics
