    Oh, back at the summit, Brissles will moan and complain and talk of bribery and corruption. Oh dear!

    Have a great weekend everyone and I hope we all have a much better year in 2023. I wish that for you all, anyway.

    Tip : Every day next week 9am Radio4 Climate Activism series
    with Amol Rajan
    Doesn’t look impartial at all
    Monday R4 9am Rethink Climate
    Episode 1 of 5 of Pledges and progress
    Amol Rajan and guests examine the pledges that have been made on climate change and how far we have gone towards meeting them.
    What has worked to reduce greenhouse gasses and what’s not working, including the role of COP.
    Is the commitment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees the right one?

      “the commitment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees”

      is utterly absurd – but it’s a mantra trotted out by the cult faithful. I look forward to Chinese and Indian representatives on the BBC next week elaborating how that might be achieved from their country perspective.

      They won’t let anyone who might mock them anywhere near the studio while they have their circle jerk sessions going on.

          Curiously, Thunberg shares her birthday with Kyle Rittenhouse, also born on January 3rd, 2003. Readers will recall that Kyle was forced to despatch three left-wing nasties who were trying to kill him. At his trial in November 2021, Kyle was correctly found to have acted in self defence and was cleared of any wrongdoing. Out of these two young people who share the same birthday, most sensible folk can easily determine who has done the most for humanity.

    Ex President Trump’s tax returns, a most curious saga.

    So the Democrats have obtained an order that they should be released. How exactly? There surely can’t be a Law that requires a President to disclose them? There is a custom that Presidents do release them but that’s it as far as I know. If the President has to release his tax returns then why not other high officials or even the entire public sector or everybody?
    Why bother getting them released after the Presidency?
    It’s interesting that Trump doesn’t seem to have fought against release too actively. Perhaps he has bigger fish to fry and there’s nothing much to hide…….Indeed that seems to be the case.

        On LBC today, a reasonable argument for new homes was being discussed, in that the hundreds new houses would all help first-time buyers to get on the housing market.

        But if the councils demand a proportion of these new homes go to leftie housing associations, (proportions vary, but think 20%), then they’ll have lots of lovely places to plonk Ahmed and his eight wives and kids in luxury for the rest of his life!

        The guy is wrong to say Flannels is a new brand
        There are 1990 photos of Manchester that show the gentleman’s outfitter Flannels
        The Twitter account @FlannelsFashion has existed 9 years.
        “Neil Prosser founded Flannels in 1976 with a menswear store in Knutsford
        In the year of 2012, Flannels sold a 51% share to sportswear specialist Sports Direct, whilst September 2017 saw the company take full hold of Flannels, as Prosser stepped down as Director of the brand”

    Juxtaposition, synergy and euphemism enough edition

    The very cockles of Mr AsI’s heart are warmed (can that be a genuine medical condition? If so one wished one had a ‘Long’ version of it. And if a warmed heart is really a thing – can the right-wing TV Licence-cancelling old cynic now be imagined to have such a thing as a heart?) on those occasions when he notices a newspaper front page that has the aspect of an editor’s day off.

    I refer of course to those happy occasions (or is it unhappy for the organs concerned? – newspaper titles are the organs not hearts) of near laughable juxtaposition of clashing contradictory headline reports.

    Exhibit one, this old year’s new morn, the Daily Mail:

    Rishi orders covid tests on arrivals from China… Sunak steps in over fears Beijing could be covering up emergence of new varients

    Whereas: Let Paul McKenna banish your anxiety.. Wake up to a New Year with no worries… See pages 40-43 (Daily Mail)

    The Tory Telegraph is caught playing the woke lefty game of all must win prizes: Four Lionesses on honours list – but rest miss out

    While their Comment columnist Charles Moore accuses others: It’s high time the BBC’s woke view of history was binned

    Under their Business feature the still vaguely patriotic Telegraph reassures UK investors with a crumb or two of comfort: FTSE tops rivals after grim year for markets… the world’s best performing major stock index… As tumbling global stock markets suffered their worst year since 2008 in a near 20pc plunge, London’s blue chip index eked out a 0.9pc gain

    Meanwhile, the Financial Times owns its supranational globalist credentials, taking the contrary approach and headlining no British silver lining to those gathering dark international clouds: Markets lose more than $30tn in worst year since financial crisis – as is often the case with the FT, one wonders whether their headline writers are native English speakers – the thrust of their message lost somewhat, becoming confused or over-burdened with clauses?

    Does the FT really imply this is NOT presently a financial crisis by refering to THE financial crisis, we presume to be 2008? Or was it 1929 – for those more historically minded?

    Sometimes there emerges a sadly relentless synergy where Mr AsI would prefer divergence:

    James Naughtie (late of the BBC Radio 4 Today programme parish) now opines in the left-leaning mid-market ‘i’ newspaper: Taking control is a Brexit fantasy

    One might have thought this trans-Atlantic internationalist heavyweight would have found his berth at the FT

    The FT approves international coordination – or is it supranational direction?: UK, France and Spain rush in controls for travellers from China

    The BBC notes: Several countries, including the US, France and India, have imposed testing.

    The ever coronaphobic left-leaning ‘i’ we sense to be an increasing influence on BBC newsroom thinking (having noted previously the Guardian conspicuous by its absence from BBC online newspaper line ups of late): Sunak U-turns to join US, Italy and India in imposing curbs amid infection fears

    Matt is away (Telegraph) – this we’re well used to – but where’s the Guardian or, given its a Saturday, the Observer? But I digress.

    For those assuming Rishi didn’t just receive a phone call from his masters… in other words for those non-conspiratorial-minded who prefer the dumb-ass short-term popularity-seeking politician view of the world: 70pc The proportion of the British public polled yesterday that backed tests for travellers from China (Telegraph)

    Another odd synergy here: Carol Vorderman Why gheeky girls are actually cool (‘i’) – there’s a blast from the past for those who in days of yore may have fantasied our Carol giving them two off the top and one off the bottom – was that really the actual catchphrase from the show, or do we miss-remember such things? Was it instead give me some vowels please Carol… A.. E.. I.. O.. U..

    Strength in numbers… The Countdown mathematician Rachel Riley is appointed MBE (Times) – we do prefer the formerly patriotic Times’s flimsy excuse for a frontpage pin up to the Telegraph’s woke sporting Lioness lady in white

    Long gone are the days of a hang ’em and flog ’em Telegraph editorial line and yet we read: Police warned not to rebrand paedophiles – blimey, one hadn’t realised the judicial branding of malefactors with a hot iron had been brought back from the sixteenth century. Bravo! Next they’ll be clipping ears and noses. From a practical point of view one supposes there is little point in rebranding repeat offenders. I jest of course…

    Police describing paedophiles as “minor-attracted people” (MAPs) in a report normalises child abuse, campainers have said (Telegraph) – frankly, from the point of view of Mr AsI (a personality we have already established herabouts to be a right-wing TV Licence-cancelling old cynic) the world paedophile is in itself already euphemism enough for perverts.

    And we end on the so-called Tory press (TM BBC) poking fun and talking trash at those former vaguely more conservative PM’s of the recent past which they helped trash and chase out of office:  ‘Truss in boots’ the panto (FT); Peter Brookes Cartoons of the year (Times) – features front page a vicious sketch rendering of Boris outside a trashed post-party No10 announcing his departure: “This is the end of an error”

    And this is the end of a year (nearly) and of today’s press review (decidedly). Do have a happy new one, one and all, hereabouts.

      The question that interests me about Ratszinger was why he resigned? Was it due to sexual abuse in the church and him not cracking down harder on it , the explanation favoured and hinted at by the MSM or was it perhaps his openly stated antipathy to Islam , coupled with his maintenance of traditional Catholic doctrine. Both of these aspects of Papacy dismayed the powerful globalist one worlders. His replacement was notably liberal on both issues and much else besides.

      Notice how while a few awards get highlighted- lady footballers, old rock guitarists, old fashion designers, the bulk of the gongs go to public sector time servers for services to ‘turning up for work’.

      This used to be a sop to those who served but were ‘underpaid’. But now that every pay decile for workers is higher for the public sector than the private, not to mention massively generous pension schemes, this is no longer valid.

      Why don’t private sector workers get more gongs? They have become the deserving ones.

      Anyone who has studied geography (i.e. not bbc uneducated kidult morons) will know that glaciation in Scotland tipped the UK due to its weight, the UK north is now slowly bouncing back and the the south is lowering and consequent sea level rises in the south.

      “What is glacial isostatic adjustment?
      Glacial isostatic adjustment is the ongoing movement of land once burdened by ice-age glaciers

      This ongoing movement of land is called glacial isostatic adjustment. Here’s how it works: Imagine lying down on a soft mattress and then getting up from the same spot. You see an indentation in the mattress where your body had been, and a puffed-up area around the indentation where the mattress rose. Once you get up, the mattress takes a little time before it relaxes back to its original shape.

      Even the strongest materials (including the Earth’s crust) move, or deform, when enough pressure is applied. So when ice by the megaton settled on parts of the Earth for several thousand years, the ice bore down on the land beneath it, and the land rose up beyond the ice’s perimeter—just like the mattress did when you lay down on and then got up off of it.

      That’s what happened over large portions of the Northern Hemisphere during the last ice age, when ice covered the Midwest and Northeast United States as well as much of Canada. Even though the ice retreated long ago, North America is still rising where the massive layers of ice pushed it down. The U.S. East Coast and Great Lakes regions—once on the bulging edges, or forebulge, of those ancient ice layers—are still slowly sinking from forebulge collapse.”

      I suspect this sort of thing explains the amusing case of the Rotten Borough of Dunwich (abolished in the early 1830s). From Wiki:

      “In medieval times, when Dunwich was first accorded representation in Parliament, it was a flourishing port and market town about thirty miles (50 km) from Ipswich. However, by 1670 the sea had encroached upon the town, destroying the port and swallowing up all but a few houses so that nothing was left but a tiny village. The borough had once consisted of eight parishes, but all that was left was part of the parish of All Saints, Dunwich – which by 1831 had a population of 232, and only 44 houses (“and half a church”, as Oldfield recorded in 1816).

      In fact, this made Dunwich by no means the smallest of England’s rotten boroughs, but the symbolism of two Members of Parliament representing a constituency that was essentially underwater captured the imagination and made Dunwich one of the most frequently-mentioned examples of the absurdities of the unreformed system.”

      Erosion at Happisburgh is a natural process, global warming or not it will happen.
      Of course weird weather events do effect a days events

      It’s not on the south coast so I don’t think Glacial bounce back is a huge part.

      If a coastal place in the world has cliffs, do you think that it was always like that ??
      Cliffs exist cos of erosion
      If a beachside is a cliff and not a gentle rise, then that is cos the land on the sea side has already eroded.

      If a cliff is hard rock it may have existed for eons
      However if a cliff is soft rock like the boulder clay at Happisburgh then something put it there . Maybe dragged in on a glacier
      Or maybe like in east Yorkshire it it actually sea bed from when the sea used to be a hundred feet higher
      So today’s erosion is merely a reversion to the state from before that high sea level time.

        It does affect the east coast and all southern UK :

        “A new map plots the most accurate predictions yet for land uplift and subsidence in the UK.

        The map shows that southern Ireland and Wales, and southern and eastern England are continuing to sink, whilst Scotland is rising, at rates less than previously predicted.

        The ‘Coastland Map’ produced by scientists from Durham University and published in the Journal ‘GSA Today’, charts the post Ice-Age tilt of the UK and Ireland and current relative sea-level changes. According to the map, the sinking effect in the south could add between 10 and 33 per cent to the projected sea-level rises caused by global warming over the next century. ”

        “Northwards in East Anglia, along the Norfolk Coast and the Fenlands, the influence of crustal rebound once again becomes more significant and the maximum sea-levels attained at the glacial maximum are progressively reduced from south to north ”

              “Sea level rise shown to drive coastal erosion
              Stephen P. Leatherman, Keqi Zhang, Bruce C. Douglas
              First published: 03 June 2011
              https://doi.org/10.1029/00EO00034

              Abstract

              Our research has shown that an important relationship exists between sea level rise and sandy beach erosion. The link is highly multiplicative, with the long-term shoreline retreat rate averaging about 150 times that of sea level rise. For example, a sustained rise of 10 cm in sea level could result in 15 m of shoreline erosion. Such an amount is more than an order of magnitude greater than would be expected from a simple response to sea level rise through inundation of the shoreline.

              Sea level is certainly only one of many factors causing long-term beach change. Shoreline revisions from inlet dynamics and coastal engineering projects are more pronounced in most areas of the US. east coast and tend to mask the effect of a rise in sea level even over extended intervals. The implication is that sea level rise is a secondary but inexorable cause of beach erosion in such areas.”

                  Coastal erosion is the process by which local sea level rise, strong wave action, and coastal flooding wear down or carry away rocks, soils, and/or sands along the coast. All coastlines are affected by storms and other natural events that cause erosion; the combination of storm surge at high tide with additional effects from strong waves—conditions commonly associated with landfalling tropical storms—creates the most damaging conditions. The extent and severity of the problem is worsening with global sea level rise, but it differs in different parts of the country, so there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

      On the one hand, the BBC attributing East coastal erosion to global warming.
      On the other, irrefutable evidence that erosion has been taking place for centuries.

      Another classic example of inconvenient facts not being allowed to get in the way of the BBC’s agreed editorial narrative.
      I suppose in a weird sort of way the BBC is right, but not for the reasons thay want to propagandise.. It IS about global warming. That is global warming from the last ice age and the attendant natural geological changes.

    There has been plenty of articles in the DT in recent days documenting the astounding degree to which the BBC has become anti British. Something which we on the site had noticed years and years ago. But despite all the hand ringing we all know that nothing will change at the BBC unless and until they are defunded. We also know that none of the current main political parties would ever think or dare to bring the BBC to heel.
    The only feasible way to force change in the foul corporation is for there to be a mass refusal to pay the License Fee. This would need well publicised coordination on a national basis. A newspaper like the Telegraph or Mail would be well able to promote such a campaign but once again we know that they don’t have the courage to do it. So we are left by trying to bring about the defunding by simple word of mouth and use of social media.

    Piece by Charles Moore courtesy of the DT about the BBC being shamed for its Marxist anti British version of history.please someone destroy it

    STARTS\
    As the year turns, one thinks about history. There has been plenty of it in 2022. Queen Elizabeth II died after the longest and most successful reign of any constitutional monarch ever. By the following month (coincidentally), we had had three PMs in six weeks.

    Across the world, Covid-19 continued to make people and economies (including its Chinese originators) ill and inflicted unexpected political after-effects. By invading Ukraine, Vladimir Putin caused the death of more than 100,000 people and the displacement of eight million. He threatened global energy supply and the post-1945 world order.

    How will these events be seen by history? It may be idle to speculate, but worthwhile to raise a different question – how will that history be told?

    This week, History Reclaimed, a group of historians worried by what it sees as ideological hijacking, has brought out a report called “Can we trust the BBC with our history?”.

    It takes six case studies of recent BBC programmes – four related to slavery, one about the Irish potato famine in the 1840s and one about the Bengal famine.

    In all cases, the main villains the BBC unearthed were white, British and male. Such men imprisoned slaves for trading purposes on Bunce Island, Sierra Leone; they robbed the Kingdom of Benin of its works of art; one of their prime ministers, Robert Peel, refused handouts to the starving Irish; another, Winston Churchill, denied food for the people of Bengal; and so on.

    The case of History Reclaimed is not that these episodes are glorious chapters in Our Island Story, but that all the BBC stories were significantly, factually wrong – citing false evidence and/or omitting relevant, accessible evidence that complicates the broadcasters’ morality tale.

    Thus, it was never mentioned in the Sierra Leone programme that the “raiders” who brought African slaves to the British were themselves Africans, who lived by this trade. Nor were viewers told that the Royal Navy became the main suppressor of the slave trade, capturing, between 1808 and 1860, 1,600 slave ships and freeing 150,000 slaves. Again, the BBC did not explain that the British raid on Benin was an expedition to punish a kingdom which traded slaves for the metals which composed their works of art, and massacred an unarmed party of this country’s envoys and their African bearers.

    In the case of the Irish famine, the accusatory TV historian cited a speech Peel made in Parliament before the famine had taken hold as evidence of his callousness when it had actually happened.

    History Reclaimed points out that such programmes violate the BBC’s own “public purposes” – especially its commitment to accuracy, impartiality and diversity (“alternative viewpoints”).

    This might matter less if one programme’s bias balanced another’s – a separate documentary exposing African slave traders, say, or a pro-Unionist account of Irish history. But, no, the slant is all one way: the white British are always guilty. The BBC, says History Reclaimed, is “presenting false history as uncontested fact”.

    I need not labour the point the report makes so well. Instead, I want to ask why such programmes – and comparable exercises, online or printed – are now omnipresent.

    Their authors will say they are challenging “conventional wisdom” and overthrowing the self-serving orthodoxies of white male propaganda dished out to generations of school-children.

    Where are these orthodoxies taught? It is 50 years since I studied basic history at school, but even in that distant era I do not remember ever being told that the British Empire as a whole was marvellous, and I do recall several occasions on which I was taught that it had been bad.

    Mostly what I remember, however, is a strong historical narrative, Anglo-centric certainly, but not cut off from world issues. Its power came not from its ideology, which was mostly vague, but from its chronological coherence. The sequence of time is the framework of all history. What happens afterwards cannot affect what happened before (though it might well change our view of what happened before). So dates really matter: we learnt them, often by heart.

    We also learnt a hierarchy of importance. As children tend to prefer, the emphasis was on great events and great people. We learnt more about wars and revolutions, inventions and discoveries, than about domestic customs or the growth of stock markets; more about Nelson or Newton than about Mrs Beeton or J.M.Keynes.

    The first thing we learnt was a context of consecutive facts. It was only when we approached adulthood that we started to consider historical arguments more analytically. Our order of priorities was rather like that of a newspaper – exciting and important stories on the front page, comment articles inside for later consideration.

    There was then – and, I am pleased to discover, there is still – a history exam, devised chiefly for preparatory schools, called the Townsend Warner Prize. To do well in this, one had to have much disparate knowledge at one’s 12-year-old fingertips. What was the War of Jenkins’s Ear? Name the members of the CABAL. Who was the Akond of Swat?

    Looking at recent Townsend Warner papers online, I see they preserve the same testing spirit, while rightly including more non-European subjects, and place the same emphasis on facts, economically conveyed. Explain what the following terms mean, says one question – scutage, the Silk Road, the Cinque Ports, pals’ battalions, Doodlebugs. It gives you only half a line for each answer.

    Unfortunately, this is untypical of the way history is conveyed in the 21st century. It is not so much that pupils learn bad narratives. It is more that they learn no overall narrative. Woke ideology seeks to fill the vacuum. If you don’t know what happened when, you are like a geographer who cannot read a map. You have no sense of where you, your time and your country stand in relation to your subject: you are susceptible to bad guides.

    It would be a good thing, in 2023, if the BBC could apply its collective mind to remedying this. Is it too late, for example, to make a television about the history of the crowns and other objects to be worn at the King’s Coronation in May? You read a lot about the North/South divide in England. This is historically represented by the division of the Church into two provinces – York and Canterbury. How about a programme which studied how that power struggle played out, using the two cathedrals as illustrations? Newspapers tend to run “On This Day” columns drawn from their cuttings 50 or a hundred years ago. Why doesn’t Radio 4 do its version, rather as it does “Tweet of the Day” about birds?

    We are all governed through the House of Commons. Why is there no programme about how it came into being and has developed from Simon de Montfort to Rishi Sunak?

    What organisation could be better qualified than the BBC, by Charter and by its UK-wide funding, to tell us about ourselves, and our place in the wider world? What about Normans versus Anglo-Saxons, and both versus Celts? What about Protestants versus Catholics? What about the persecution, expulsion and eventual return of the Jews? What about the story of the British who left for the Americas, Australasia or Africa? And what of the mainly non-white peoples of the Empire and Commonwealth who came to these shores?

    Yes, these stories sometimes involve injustice and suffering, but they are so rich and complex that they require not a wagging finger, but an open mind.ENDS

      The nut-job Green Party candidate Connolley – on his own tormented 5,428 unique “climate” entries, deleted 500 more and managed to block ca. 2000 other authors. Not that Wales’ people will acknowledge that.

      Wikipedia is the goto place for libmob nitwits to smear/pile-on anybody the perceive as a challenge/threat.

        Tate reminds me of David Sullivan who ran (runs?) a fleet of chat line centres operated by his mates which are a predecessor to the online “video chat” model that Tate purportedly runs.

        The amount of cash generated was/is enormous.

        Sullivan trawled the service via ads in his newspapers and other publications – a big advertising spender who was courted by near all the mid and low market tabloids tree recyclers.

        The individual operators on Sullivan’s lines got paid well and most operated from home. I suspect that Tate’s Romanian operation is very similar in architecture – locking girls in cubicles on the apron of Bucharest airport simply doesn’t seem to be necessary.

        Tate has been very tricky, devious + relentless in his self promotion. I wondered at his touted conversion to Islam…

        It’s easy to imagine that some other party is looking to move in on Tait’s operation.

      #1 They don’t need to trace him .. so no description was released

      #2 They don’t name offenders until they are charged
      However if they need to protect someone say the victim or a child they might still withhold the name.

      Charging must be within 24 hours
      36 hours if a Superintendent permits
      96 if a magistrate approves
      But longer times apply for terrorism.

        This from Associated Press and on AOL news still searching for him but name snd photo released:

        :
        “Police have named a man they are wanting to trace after the sexual assault of an elderly woman at her home in west London.

        Officers are searching for James Bex, 35, of no fixed address, in connection with the incident.

        The victim, aged in her 70s, was returning home in the area of Ledbury Road, Notting Hill Gate, when she was assaulted between 9-10pm on December 23.”

            “They don’t name offenders until they are charged”

            Patently wrong as shown above

            See below he is “being hunted” BEFORE ARREST

            No name or photo was released, or description, unlike the London male:

            “Woman is brutally raped near a primary school on Boxing Day as police hunt a named suspect

            A woman was raped near St Mary’s Primary School at 10pm on Boxing Day. West Mercia Police are searching for a named suspect after the attack. Anyone with information is being encouraged to reach out to police officers

            ‘Enquiries are ongoing to locate a named suspect.”

              @Z as a I said They don’t name offenders until they are charged NORMALLY
              in this Telford case they already had him custody
              In a few cases they do name “people of interest” potential offenders or witnesses etc.

              You keep saying there is something unusual in this Telford case.
              There wasn’t
              Except it is strange that there is news of him being charged
              The arrest time period is well past now.

                I am getting tired of you nitpicking at my posts, and having to provide more and more references to prove what I said RE sea level rises, why inverted racism is just racism, and now this.

        Atlas – I think the honours system gives us a rare view of the corruption of the swamp . There is a’ conceit ‘ that Britain is less corrupt than lesser countries – but as can be seen when the system is stressed (covid ) – friends of the management are readily rewarded with contracts and taxpayers ‘ cash – let’s hope Michelle moan grips the rail this year – although it is extremely unlikely because she might do a lot of political damage .

        The rules for politicians – drafted by them – are also an insult to us . Some of the stuff on a recently knighted labour MP proves they have no sense of right or wrong – but make laws controlling our behaviour – Johnson and Cameron and Osborne and may also prove my case …

      The fraudulent mRNA trials were known about from the very beginning. In fact, even the BMJ reported on it two years ago. I should know. I sent copies to all GP surgeries in my area asking them not go along with the injection campaign. I didn’t get any responses.
      This is the BMJ analysis from over two years ago.

      Why was I aware of this in October 2020 and Campbell was not? Strange no?

      Follow the money.

      When’s the enquiry?
      Will it take a long time to complete and will it be whitewashed?
      The British Government has a duty to protect the people of Great Britain, anything else is treason.

    Tom Mills doesn’t feature much here, cos he wrote a book saying the BBC is biased against the left
    Well the BBC groupthink is very anti-Tory
    but it’s not a Labour Party organ, It has its own agendas
    eg being anti_Corbyn cos they knew he couldn’t beat the Tories
    eg being extremist on lockdown and Global Warming etc. which coincided with Boris policy

    Now on Twitter he is praising the dropping of the BBC newspaper reviews
    His supporters pile it by saying the newspapers are a Tory agenda and the review never features the Morning Star.

    In 2018 he gaslit by saying calling the BBC anti-left was “taboo”
    No one called the BBC anti-left cos it wan’t anti-left.

    The Third Secret of Fatima & the rise of the Antichrist. Sister Lucy wrote “The devil has succeeded in bringing in evil under the guise of good”. In his book, Frère Michel reports that, when questioned about the Secret, Sister Lucy said: “It’s in the Gospel and in the Apocalypse, read them!” He notes that she then particularly indicated Chapters VIII through XIII of the Apocalypse (Chapter XIII specifically concerns the rise of the Antichrist). In his study of the Third Secret, Frère Michel builds a powerful and compelling case that the Third Secret is a grave warning of apostasy within the Catholic Faith and a serious indictment of those in the Church hierarchy who have promoted dissent and outright heresy. According to the prophecy of “the last Pope,” taken from St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes,” the last Pope follows Pope Benedict XVI, and will be the false prophet who leads the world’s religious communities into embracing the Antichrist (Bill Gates) . Pope Benedict XVI died on the last day of 2022.

    a guy saying take Climate seriously “Areas that had floods and heatwaves in 2022 will have them again” this is the new normal

    I looked him up “Keith Jones, the National Trust’s Climate Change advisor”
    He was all over other media clips saying the same thing ..same headset, same webcam background.

    WE had a winter of 53, we had a summer of 1976, they were not the new normal .. you dramaqueen.

        The weather always balances itself out. We had a dry summer followed by a wet autumn. It was mild too in the autumn but a couple of inches of snow in London and freezing temperatures in Yorkshire for a week show that too has been balanced. Shame the Met Office doesn’t understand it too.

        Happy new year to everyone who posts on this site, hope FedUp is feeling better, and may we all stay well to hold the BBC to account in 2023.

      The Muslim hordes march on!

      The progressive westerners bow down thinking they will be allies and mates but they will lose their heads along with all the rest.

      The game is domination not assimilation.

      The Muslim zealots are indoctrinated and determined and an ethnic religious war is 100% certain to ensue. Which will be a re-run of the crusades but unfortunately lacking enough brave men into the fray as they will mostly be of indeterminate gender and possibly object to attacking any racial group due to their sensitivities.

        The re-run of the Crusades will be much closer to home unfortunately. It was handy that the original Crusades were fought thousands of miles away as well as providing extended leave for knights in warmer climes.

    Did you see the recent university challenge?

    As well as most of the questions being about unknown wimmin philosophers and the like they had a picture round where they showed a river and alongside it a picture when there was a bit of a drought.
    Obviously they meant to show global warming effects so a full river alongside lots of sandbanks with low water levels gives the impression that the rivers are boiling away and will soon disappear.

    I used to get between 15-20 answers before but as it’s now gone woke and I’m not clued up on black film directors or Japanese wimmin authors etc I now often get below 10
    A good half of the questions now are totally woke related.

    They’ve spoiled what used to be a good quiz.

    Just watched a tv commercial by Noom, a company set up to sell obscenely overpriced pseudo food designed to make girls thin.

    It featured a number of weighty middle aged ladies tempting girls with what can only be described as normal food.

    The ad portrayed them as evil bastards trying to get the girls fat by offering delicious food in the name of love.

    So in other words don’t eat healthy delicious food, don’t trust your parents to feed you properly, eat our overpriced crap if you want to be desirable.

    Despicable money grubbing rubbish!

    The damage this could cause between children and their parents is immense.

    Perfectly sums up the twisted sub-human creatures pushing their evil ideology today.

    If the advertising standards authority was doing its job this ad should never have been allowed air time.
