    BBC local newsPR has gone into a long item about “Fast Fashion’s carbon footprint”

    That’s strange cos within the last 7 days ITV local newsPR has had two items about that same thing

    #1 The vox pop contained a large proportion who said they didn’t care about the carbon footprint

    #2 The item ended with a lecture from Besma Whayeb
    .. a person who says she is a social media influencer
    “The founder of @EthicalInfluencers, a network of influencers collectively working towards a better world”
    I bet you are surprised
    she is based in Brighton
    and a BBC favourite.

      The balance between Eco and Fashion walked by the media is hilarious.

      Especially the Graun, whose readership is mostly saggy cougars who fly to Japan for whale fur catwalk shows.

      And Sam Smith in xe’s speedos.

    Viewer comments after the BBC local newsPR item about the plan to house “dinghy divers” in a Hull University owned hall of residence.
    “But you are supposed to seek asylum in the first safe country”
    “I have no compassion for these people”

    Another classic from the Beeb. Shower at home vs at the gym: What’s cheaper?
    All Things Money financial blogger Ola Majekodunmi (yep never heard of her) goes through the numbers. Apparently it costs about £14 a month to shower at home compared to £40 for gym membership. No mention of the cost of getting to the gym and the time involved. What I find staggering is that lip service is paid to such utter bull (but it is the Beeb) and I suppose she is getting ‘paid’ for this. Also staggering.
    Next week ‘Crapping at home or a public toilet, which paper is softer’.

      How about ,

      Can you save money by going to a friend’s/ relative’s house , a communal centre or stand outside a Curries shopfront window and watch TV and not buy the telly tax ?


    • StewGreen says:

      top tip : You can do press ups and exercises in your back garden or park
      There is little reason to pay £40/month.

      Ashly, Ask 1 million dead Iraqis
      and the families of dead British troops.

      #2 She is. showing a lack of imagination
      more immigration, more lockdowns,and more mad green policies etc. etc.
      would certainly make the UK worse

      Tories are Labour-lite
      so full blown Labour will be worse.

      However there is a strange thing that the antis : the media, the unions, Labours Twitter hate mob would be backing the British government
      instead of trying to destroy it.


      • StewGreen says:

        “How could it be worse ?”
        What an asinine statement
        There are a million scenarios where it would be worse.

    I know it’s not an original thought – but the attitude of the green type resonates with the medieval mindset where everything unusual happened was the ‘will of God’ – shared now with the pagan Muslims .
    So every hot/ cold day is caused by ‘us’ and something must be done about it …. Also – in a world where the BBC wants everything to change( eg replacement of the white British population ) to the ‘approved’ form – strange that is doesn’t want the climate to change ….


    • tomo says:

      Guilt has driven religious observance since before written history…

      There’s more religion in politics at the moment than many would care to admit. The mainstream religions aren’t catering for the masses and the amount of delusion doesn’t drop – so it has to go somewhere…

      I wish I could find a copy of Andy Hamilton’s telly documentary about Satan / De Debbil / Beelzebub.

  6. tomo says:

    Chatting with somebody earlier – when you think about it….

    Saying the Tories have been in power for thirteen years is a highly questionable claim – they’ve only had a parliamentary majority for three?

    So… that kind of feeds into why they are so keen to ally with climate cults and fawn over other odious deluded goons who might keep them in power – like the BBC.


    • StewGreen says:

      Tories in power ?
      When did that happen ?
      All I see is WEF-spendthrift socialists
      who were kind of forced to implement the weakest type of Brexit.


  7. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I usually record Farage and Steyn to watch a little later and ff through the adverts.
    Farage tonight was probably the worst one I’ve seen.
    Starting off with 20 minutes on Harry and Meghan. I’m bored stiff with the wall to wall coverage. I fast forwarded through that.
    Next he had Nigel Nelson on as a guest.
    This lefty is on as much as the shouty narinder girl, more than most GB News presenters. Again I f-forwarded.
    His talking pints, usually the weakest part of his show, was with a health and fitness person. FF again.

    I’m really missing Mark Steyn.
    Dewbs is probably the best thing on there at the moment.

    Just about everything now is about Harry and Meghan. Boring boring boring.


    • BRISSLES says:

      Emm. GBN is rapidly becoming a musical chair circuit for their stable of presenters and regular guests. Guests are now sitting in for absent presenters, and each programme is just a rotating table for the same talking heads. Perhaps the bookers aren’t getting hold of anyone new to appear so everyone is just filling in.


    • StewGreen says:

      Distracting us will silly soap opera celebrity stuff like Harry and Megan, is often a trick
      covering up some real story.

      GBnews has to have mad lefties on , cos of Ofcom rules on balance.

      Over Christmas GBnews has suffered from a shortage of hosts.
      That should be remedied soon.
      I’d like to see Alastair Stewart and Portillon on more shows.

      Why is the news bit still the same as BBC ITV Sky ?
      It’s like there is a secret WEF-government dictate on what the headlines should be.


    • Zelazek says:

      Politicians make terrible interviewers and I think Nigel Farage is a terrible interviewer. Like a lot of them on GBNews. His longwinded questions include his own answers to the questions as well as infinite digressions. As soon as the interviewee says something he doesn’t agree with, Nigel jumps in with the counter argument. It’s not an interview. It’s 95% Nigel and 5% guest.

      It doesn’t matter that I almost always agree with Nigel and disagree with his woke folk guests. Let the guest speak and make his case. There is no point in an interview otherwise.

      The technique is a pithy question, Nigel, and then stand back. Give your guests the time and space to reveal themselves in their full awfulness. You don’t need to interrupt all the time for the absurdity of their arguments to be made apparent. A raised eyebrow can be enough to encourage them to keep talking and say things they didn’t intend.

      Take a look at a few old Alan Whicker clips. He was the master interviewer.


  8. Flotsam says:

    Does anyone think that Keir Starmer would appear on Farage’s “Talking Pints”?


    • tomo says:

      Nige should do the “interview an empty chair” trick – optionally with a cardboard cutout …

    • taffman says:

      In a nutshell, Profiteering !


      • StewGreen says:

        That’s Labour thinking
        The fact is the gas you used today was not bought today
        it was bought in the futures market.

        And even if today futures prices are lower
        that gas is to be delivered in the future not today.

        In the real world loads of gas retailers recently went bankrupt. last 2 years.


        • tomo says:

          The gas market as I understand it is more complicated than that.

          Some contract terms span decades and that underpins the financing of field developments.

          Discussion about gas prices is tainted by an over reliance on the spot and futures pricing.

    The BBC reviews Harry’s book, Spare.

    One think they don’t seem to mention is that, by bragging about his 25 kills in Afghanistan, he has just made himself the target of every Jihadi nutcase out there, indeed potentially 1.97 billion muslims.

    Good luck, Harry boy.


    • JohnC says:

      .. and they have completely brushed his cocaine, canabis and magic mushroom habits under the carpet (unless I missed that headline). ‘He didn’t enjoy’ it they say – so why did he do them multiple times ?.

      Particularly the bit where it was while under their influence ‘he saw the truth’ about the world because they removed the ‘red mist’. That’s got ‘weak and pathetic’ written all over it in my world.

      No question whose side the BBC are on. The opposite one to the people who fund them. Again.


      • Zephir says:

        And, once again a nasty vicious bullying black wimmin gets a free ride on the bbc, having driven out staff, having fallen out with all her family, having treated so many with nasty vindictive comments and attacks, even apparently throwing tea at a server in Australia.

        “One of the unnamed staff members is referred to using the letter Y.

        The documentary claims: “The Duchess seems intent on always having someone as a target. She’s bullying Y, and seeking to undermine her confidence.

        “We have had report after report from people who have been witnessing this unacceptable behaviour towards Y.”

        The Knauf email reads: “I am very concerned that the Duchess had been bullying and harassing two personal assistants, to the extent that she provoked their resignation during the course of the last year.

        The documentary narrative continues: “During 2018 there was indeed a spate of resignations among Meghan Markle’s team.

        “Former members have even set up an informal group that they called between them, the Sussex Survivors’ Club. Some of them still remain traumatised.

        Valentine Low, The Times royal correspondent, is also quoted in the documentary saying: “There was a person who was so terrified by a conversation she was about to have with Meghan that she said, ‘I feel sick’. Some of these young women have been broken.”

          push their agenda to ” educate” the 85% unwashed
          white population of the UK on their perceived racism.

    TOADY Watch #1 – the ‘I’m going spare’ edition A

    “I want the Secretary of State to meet me half-way. We could settle for ten per cent.” Ah but, yes but, no but you demanded a 19% pay rise for your nurses, Pat. Maybe maths is not your strongest subject and I see you needed to study it until age eighteen as Rishi Sunak, the PM, suggests.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Up2- i guess thats the nurses’ leader? Is she really saying 10%?

      If so it shows the original was just a pee take -they need to impose a minimum service level .


      • Up2snuff says:

        Fed, apparently so. Half way for us numerate types when the initial demand is 19% is 9.5% but yes, Pat Cullen has counted on her fingers and calculated that a 10% pay rise will do after all.

    I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
    Across the Irish Sea,
    I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
    It’s the only thing for me.
    I’ve tried walking sideways,
    And walking to the front,
    But people just look at me,
    And say it’s a hypocritical PR stunt.

    I’m walking backwards for Christmas, to prove that I love you.

    An imigrantal lad, loved an Irish colleen
    From Dublin Galway Bay.
    He longed for her arms,
    But she spurned his charms,
    And sailed o’er the foam away.

    She left the lad by himself, on his own
    All alone, a-sorrowing
    And sadly he dreamed, or at least that’s the
    way it seemed, buddy,
    That an angel choir for him,
    an angel choir did sing.

    I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
    Across the Irish Sea.
    I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
    It’s the finest thing for me.

    And so I’ve tried walking sideways,
    And walking to the front.
    But people just laughed, and said,
    “It’s a hypocritical PR stunt

    TOADY Watch #3 – the ‘I’m going spare’ edition C – Dr Snuffy diagnoses

    I was interested that yesterday in the reports on the BBC w-s about the latest from the Spare One that he had taken cocaine when a young man. Now I gather you can add marijuana to that list. Dr Snuffy diagnosed possible mental illness for both in the Shy Couple yesterday, and it is conceivable that (Margaret Rutherford type voice) “An actress!” also tried various substances as an aid to creativity or a self-prescribed antidote to stress of the profession and its ‘notices’.

    My diagnosis still stands. Perhaps Docmarooned (a proper Doc) would care to comment.


    • Docmarooned says:

      Indeed I am Up2. I would certainly agree that in their behaviour they do indeed demonstrate enough to satisfy many of the clinical definitions used in the US medical mental health definitions bible the DSM.
      Whether there is any remedy I doubt since even £100m from Netflix does not seem enough to shut them up.


      • Up2snuff says:

        Docmarooned, a friend who was a NHS pharmacist at one stage in their career had responsibility for several care homes in England, checking that drug safety rules were being observed, correct meds administered in the right way, that sort of thing. My friend noticed an interesting correlation between the ages of patients who were demonstrating paranoia and other mental health issues and the 1960s. When my friend had a chance to talk to residents in that state my friend chatted with them about the 1960s and tried to slip in the question “Did you smoke marijuana?” The answer was often “Yes.”

        The SpareShy One was not a teen in the 1960s so missed out on the ‘Summer of Love’ but his self-confessed multi-‘recreational’ drug use does make me wonder.


  20. Jeff says:

    Okay, this is my last comment on Princess Harriet…I promise…

    Apparently, his latest revelation is that when he was a soldier, he killed 25 Taliban. Not really surprising I suppose, but was it the wisest thing to come out with…what could possibly go wrong?

    Salman Rushdie was almost murdered a few months ago and now has to live with life changing injuries, due to a book he wrote back in the 1980s, that upset this backward and barbaric religion.

    On top of that, the idiot also laments that his security team aren’t allowed to carry arms while in Britain. Oh, brilliant. Well done, Harry!

    There’s clearly a village somewhere missing a vital member…

    I detect a similarity between the crazy anti Tory tweets from Alice Roberts and Ashly James.
    .. Wouldn’t surprise if Labour PR dept has had a hand in them


  24. AsISeeIt says:

    Spanish practices edition

    Attack is the watchword of the day, over there at the Guardian

    Crisis for royal family as Harry says: ‘William attacked me’

    Unions attack PM’s plan to sack workers who break strike rules

    Meanwhile the FT quotes our Lockdown government that has apparently now suddenly discovered: ‘…the public’s right to life and livelihoods’ – don’t laugh. This bold statement of our rights is of course only expressed in relation to: …anti-strike law to enforce ‘minimum service levels’ in key areas (FT)

    The Guardian speaks directly to those it sees as its captive public sector readership constituency of teachers and medics: Law would let education and NHS bosses sue if ‘minimum levels’ not met

    One can’t help thinking the government is tilting at windmills here – they’ve already admitted legislation would take six months and: The proposal is expected to face opposition in the House of Lords (FT)

    Won’t this fighting talk from the Tories simply reinvigorate the old carthorse that is the trades unions? Paul Nowak [No-work?] general secretary of the TUC said that it was “wrong, unworkable and almost certainly illegal” (FT) – not so sure about that, mate. Parliament is sovereign over the courts, surely? Well, it would be if the Tories had some real bottle and would actually take back control from the European courts and trash Tony Blair’s so-called Supreme Court – but I digress.

    Meanwhile, from talk of the TUC carthorse via the Tories flogging a dead horse, to news from the land of Don Quixote…

    Spain is enjoying a bumper tax haul… (FT) – oh really? (Olé !) How so?

    … the government’s economic support schemes during Covid coaxed underground business activity into the open… ‘People realised during the pandemic that if they were above the ground, so to speak, then if things got tough they could ask for government help” (FT) – which whistfully goes to show paternalistic governments rather enjoyed their Lockdowns

    With press frontpages chock-full to bursting point with the ginger whinger we wonder where to alight next for an on-going covid article? Why, the chronically coronaphoblic ‘i’ newspaper of course: Anjana Ahuja – Covid’s least predictable year yet (‘i’)

    Surpringly the daily comic book which is the Daily Star would also have provided a suitable segueway: Covid+ hits UK

    I’m sorry but Mr AsI keeps banging on about it because the media keeps banging on about it.

    The formerly patriotic Times climbs aboard the climate emergency charabanc invoking rose-tinted notions of a year-long summer: Last year was the hottest on record in Britain as “human-induced global warming” pushed the temperature to above 10c for the first time

    I’m oddly reminded of the band 10CC and their rather un-woke tracks I Don’t Like Cricket – I Love It and Dreadlock Holiday

    Briton shot dead in Jamaica was victim of contract killing, police say… Speaking to MailOnline, Patterson’s mother, Lesley Wright, said her son had “been having the time of his life” in Jamaica, where he has family through his father. (Guardian)

    Sadly, he had the time of his death, too.

    Wright said her son, who was engaged and planned to marry his fiancee this year, had hoped to meet them but never had the chance (Guardian) – one assumes ‘them’ is perhaps a missprint for ‘her’ – but you never know these days, what with funny pronouns and all. Jamaicans don’t tend to do arranged marriages between couples who haven’t as yet met – for UK passports. So perhaps the sense of this is that the poor chap intended to meet his fiancee’s family in Jamaica?

    Speaking of confusion over pronouns…

    One giant leap for crewkind. Space goes woke (Daily Star)

    I’m sorry but I must touch on a thread of somewhat crass unpleasantness in celebrity lefty feminism this morning: Miriam Morgoyles ‘People have this idea I’m a walking cesspit’ (Guardian)

    Whoopi Goldberg ‘There’s nothing a guy can do that I can’t. Except stand up and pee’ (‘i’)

    And having poured sufficient (cold) water over our government’s lame strike legislation we’ll conclude with the best tabloid pun on the Harry v William conflict: Put your Dukes up! (Daily Star)

    And tomorrow – we hear from Meghan – you can bet your mortgage on it!

      ‘Attack’ once meant one thing.

      And at present all they have is a claim based on a sibling tussle.

      It also gets used now, a lot, for someone the bbc does not like saying something about someone the bbc does.

    TOADY Watch #4 – the ‘I’m going spare’ edition D – Dr Snuffy again diagnoses

    “Once a knight, always a knight, but once a knights enough!” I thank you.

    Yet another decorated Prof Doc running a bit of our National Disgraced Service (at least Matthew Taylor [NHS Federation] is a ‘political’) is interviewed by Harshmistress Mishal and is allowed to get away with all sorts of feeble excuses for his mismanagement of a bit of the NHS. Yesterday, it was not enough oxygen ordered by some penpushing glorified ‘Chief’.

    Today it is Professor Sir Stephen Powis, Director of NHS for England who was unaccountable and came up with lots of excuses. Covid mutations. Winter influenza. Massive demand from sick people. At least he did not mention PPE! Aauugghhhh! Those ‘in the know’, know that it is not the SoS for Health, Stephen Barclay MP, to blame. It is the people in charge of the NHS – as ever – who should be held accountable by the BBC and the rest of the media.

    Too many chiefs, is Dr Snuffy’s diagnosis of the National Sickness Service patient and I do not mean Walls late and much-missed Ice Cream lolly.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Clarifications and Corrections Dept: I should have used the word ‘Big’ in front of Chief so that it made more sense to youngsters who had only heard parents and grandparents talking about their favourite Ice Creams. Of course Walls could not bring back the Big Chief because the wokerists would be screaming “Racism”.

      I expect both sides are rooted in PR junk, rather than the real world.


      • tomo says:

        I feel that there is a huge difference between anecdotery and routine stats.

        It’s usually the case that campaigners over-egg their evidence such as it is – where there are alternate explanations those should be explored and an effort made to contextualise any uncertainties.

        – I really don’t see John Campbell as a “campaigner”


      • StewGreen says:

        I see Wendling saying that cos something comes from a scientific paper that makes it higher quality. Doh that is the Fallacy of Argument of Authority .. argument depends on the evidence presented, not on the messenger.

        When questioned about blocklists he replied
        “It’s not their use of lists or networks that is concerning, it’s their spreading of false information and propaganda”
        Doh, The use of Blocklists is bad cos it is a way people hide their arguments from the sunlightof scrutiny.

        He has a discussion with someone about the idea of Right Wing groups infiltrating antifa
        without talking about the obvious that antifa have a common trick of trying to infiltrate RightWing groups.


        • StewGreen says:

          A strange tweet from Wendling that gets no replies and just 6 LIkes

          A devotee of Fox News, Epps would later find himself on the end of accusatory speculation by no less than Tucker Carlson “
          Then he links to a video : Why hasn’t Ray Epps been prosecuted?
          .. https://youtu.be/ylYF6-sZkgM

          Doh the video is all about the way Epps shouted to the crowd ‘lets storm the Capitol’
          an the crowd responded by shouting “Fed !” ie that he was a FBI/CIA agitatot not a true Trump supporter

          So why is Wendling trying to say their is some kind of contradiction in Epps being a supporter of Fox News and Fox news attacking him ?
          There is no contradiction cos it seems Epps is not a genuine supporter of the rational right

      The injections were administered to the very old in December 2020. It has been shown unequivocally most heart attacks/deaths occur within the first 48 hours of the injection. I would suggest the vast majority of those figures in 2020 were due to the injection. Even if you believe Covid exists it does not cause heart attacks. Campbell is simply making it up. Covid is supposed to be a respiratory disease. Can anyone really believe it caused heart attacks in 2020?

    A couple of days ago, I ventured onto ‘Today’ Radio 4 to see how long before bias and Al Beeb’s agenda was in evidence…15 seconds..!

    The new ‘hard right’ Israeli Defense minister was condemned by China , UEA and Hamas for a brief visist to a Mosque which he did not actually enter. Over to our ‘International Editor’ Jeremy Bowen for his hatchett job on ‘Netanyahu’ (Prime Minister to you, Bowen) and his ‘occupying’ coalition of ‘racist’ rightwing hardliners in power.

    No reporting just a anti Israeli diatribe about how ‘serious’ and ‘dangerous’ it is with the new government in power. Give it a rest Bowen..

    Get out your ‘right wing’ bingo cards and just listen to ‘our Jeremy’s’ stream of invective.

        Evolutionary Biologist Bret Weinstein

        In 2015, Evergreen College hired a new president, Bridges,…
        At a meeting held by the ‘Equity Council’, faculty members were read an equity manifesto and were given a binary choice: you’re either allies or enemies.

        2017 The Day of Absence : A few months later, white people were asked to leave campus for a day, replacing what had previously been a day where people of colour voluntarily stayed away.
        Weinstein voiced his dissent on both occasions to what he felt was an unreasoned and intimidation-based approach, and was met with accusations of racism.

        A few weeks after the second incident, student protestors held Weinstein—and later several other faculty members, including Bridges—hostage while they subjugated and humiliated them.
        A faculty member later that day proudly wrote an email saying: “They are doing exactly what we’ve taught them today”. Weinstein was told by police that he needed to get off campus, and that they couldn’t protect him because they’d been ordered to stand down.
        Weinstein and Heying were denied leave, so they settled with the college and left for good.”

        They won $0.5m in damages ..which isn’t a lot in US terms
        Weinstein’s own account https://archive.is/I8KbB

        The college’s chief enrollment officer cited “questions about our reputation” as making efforts to attract students “more difficult”
        Enrollment dropped from 3,881 students in 2017 to 1,952 students in 2022


  32. BRISSLES says:

    Me too giving last comments on the gruesome twosome.

    Apropos Ginger’s claim to have wiped out 25 Afghans. So, not so long ago there was a conversation between an interviewer and colleagues of Harry’s who served with him out there. It was claimed that Harry was kept out of any dangerous situation, and those shots of Harry ‘dashing’ off to join his chums on a call-out while being interviewed was all staged. That conversation I tend to believe rather than all the comments since about him “serving on the front line for his country”. Did he really kill 25 of the enemy ? I think there will be a lot of “coming forward” by his ex colleagues to dispute this claim.

    Apropros his “wants his brother back, wants his father back”. Hmmm, smart move to make that comment before the book comes out, like a damage limitation exercise. Once all the revelations have dried up – and they will in the next couple of years, once Markle has written her book, then all the mega publishing and streaming companies will drop them like a stone. So where do they get their finance from then ? their lifestyle needs millions to support them, and then there is only one answer – cap in hand to Dad.

    As for Markle, she’s already said that she kept a daily diary since meeting Harry, so no more evidence needed that she had an agenda from day one.

    Being not interested in the details of ‘allegations ‘ by the former semi prince – I wonder what the longer term effect will be on the royalty ?
    I suppose that from the royal householder ‘advisors ‘ point of view – anything and everything said to the ex royal couple will appear on Netflix / a book . So what to do ?

    I suppose they must be invited to the crowning – otherwise that becomes another series . Is that when a new start happens or The End – with proper removal of titles – leaked DNA result – ?

    Or does it carry on for ever providing endless headlines and daytime TV fodder ?

    They need to avoid underpasses and mullahs …..madness ….but at least it distracts from important things ….

    “Former Chelsea striker and manager Gianluca Vialli, who played 59 times for Italy, has died at the age 58.

    He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017 but said in April 2020 that he had been given the all-clear.
    Vialli was re-diagnosed in 2021

    As as anti – covid – vax zealot I’m still not convinced.
    Guess there’s zero chance of BBC ‘science’ people running the data to see if there’s a upswing in patients cancer remmisions ending, post vaccine..

      Eddy, very sad news about Vialli, a cracking player…

      I’m as much an anti-lockdown zealot as anyone I know…more so, in fact… I’ve attended most of the marches, listened to Piers Corbin at Speakers’ Corner and I keep up to date with all the arguments as best as I can. However…

      This poor chap was suffering from pancreatic cancer, one the nastiest you can be diagnosed with. I think we have to be a little careful who we decide goes into the “killed by vaccine box.”

      There are enough young sportsmen, as fit as the proverbial fleas, keeling over without trying to make up the numbers with dubious evidence.

      Anyway, thanks for letting us know.

      This is very sad news…

    Dopey, juvenile braggart Harry claims to have personally killed 25 Taliban in Afghanistan. The sort of stupid claim a drunken attention-seeking teenager or smack head might spout.

    I imagine that not a lot of his staff will not be very keen to get onto a plane with him from now on!

      • Beltane says:

        Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about Harry’s claim to have machine gunned 25 Taliban is that so many are assuming it to be true.

        Come on. He’s a child. He played soldier man for a while – protected by his personal guard of Ghurkas – but actual combat? Please. The nearest to that was when he sprinted off to an Apache in a staged ‘Emergency call-out’ for the cameras.

    The royal, Harry, (formerly known as Prince) apparently was against his dad getting together with Camilla or am I thinking of Dave Royle and Beverley Macca.


  41. Zelazek says:

    It carries on for ever.

    Because Meghan’s race-baiting is pathological. The Royal Family and the British people will always be racists in her eyes. She is stuck in a circular eddy of psychological pain from a damaging upbringing by divorced parents of different races. Without therapy, her resentment is inexhaustible and her sense of persecution will never die.

    Harry has been persuaded by Meghan that he too has issues with his family. Too stupid to realise these should not be aired in public, he may at the moment be savouring the joy of speaking freely and feel liberated from the straitjacket of his royal upbringing. But when he matures a bit he will come to understand that he has gone too far and said too much. He will feel shame and embarrassment not just at the hurt he has caused his family and his country but at the realisation that he has been duped and manipulated by a monster.


  42. JohnC says:

    I must admit I’ve been surprised at the way the BBC have run a different Harry claim as the main headline every day this week in a careful campaign to squeeze as much damage out of them as possible.

    And now I see this in the ‘Live update’ reserved for hot agenda-based topics:

    ‘Still no reaction from palaces

    A reminder that all the claims from Harry’s memoir we’ve been reporting are exactly that: Harry’s side of the story.

    Neither Buckingham Palace on behalf of the King, or Kensington Palace on behalf of the Prince of Wales have commented on Spare, which is due to be released on Tuesday and we don’t know if any comment will be made.’

    They are baiting the Royal Family to engage in this destructive tittle-tattle gutter press !. Could that have been the plan from the start ?.

    I think it’s clear by now : the BBC are on a campaign to get rid of them now the Queen has gone. This story doesn’t deserve anything like this kind of exposure.


    • Guest Who says:

      I’m not.

      Or that one of their highest paid juveniles appears to have knowledge no one other that Harry’s shrink has.

      Buck House needs to stay silent and with luck the weasel bubble will explode as they try and outdo each other with… nothing.

      As a reminder the BBC, staff or DG seldom if ever comment on a corporate matter, and if they do it is because an FOI can’t be bought off. And invariably a spokes weasel before switching off the mic.

      No one owes them a comment.

      Least of all the home and nurturer of Martin Bashir.

        Summary of complaint
        We received complaints from people who feel our coverage of the Netflix series Harry & Meghan has been excessive and that we have been promoting Netflix.

        Our response
        The Netflix series Harry & Meghan has been widely anticipated, with speculation as to what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may say about their experiences within the Royal Family, what this may mean for family relations and how this could affect perceptions of the Royal Family.

        Prior to the series being released, the trailers issued by Netflix were an indication of the issues which would be discussed. In this context, we broadcast clips of these trailers, which were clearly labelled, as part of our analysis. Our reporting has also reflected allegations that footage and photos used within the trailers were misleading.

        While this may not be a story of interest to everyone, we believe our coverage has been proportionate and duly impartial, reflecting public interest.

      Deep in their bones the BBC are anti-royalist.
      Marxists view monarchy as fundamentally un-egalitarian, embodying and underpinning a class system they despise.
      Also, it symbolises and upholds patriotism, which globalists and leftists also detest.
      On special occasions the BBC puts on a show of patriotism and monarchism because those feelings are still embraced by the masses, and it needs to keep its royal charter.
      But their true feelings show up in incidents such as Naga MunchMe and Charlie Shyte mocking the flag on their silly Breakfast Show.
      You cannot be a Leftist and support the monarchy.

  43. vlad says:

    Amid all the other damage Meghan has caused, should be added that of poisoning race relations still further.
    I suspect the Palace must be thinking: absolutely no more diversity in our family, thank you very much. Not even 43%.
