    Last nights local BBC newsPR
    “Oh beach plastics scary scary
    ooh they don’t break don for 50 years ” Yeh so what ?
    they are similar to natural rocks
    “ooh scary scary .. eventually they break town in tiny particles .. microplastics ” yep just like stones break down in dust

    Hull scientist ” sometimes we find these particles in people’s lungs
    …but we we don’t know if that does any harm”
    There is is deception there
    When you have a big problem with something ..there is a pile of dead bodies eg Covid mRNA treatments
    Here she chose to leave the biggest news until last : that there is no big pile of dead bodies from plastic
    #2 lots of foreign molecules en up on your body
    the question is how MANY & of what toxicity
    Real science would give details
    The fact she chose to omit specifics there tends to suggest that both counts are low,

    Presenter “oh here we are in a tore in Hornsea that is leading a Plastic-Free campaign”

    Doh there is no compelling reason to go Plastic-Free
    … beach litter is NOT a plastic problem it’s an oik problem

    IMAGE WATCH-Hallelujah !! Todays Premium Bond article
    by the cost of living reporter has a GETTY’S image of
    a couple of South East Asia ethnicity !!!
    I wrote to the BBC a couple of weeks ago and wrote that
    that on a very rare occasion , in the name of inclusiveness we
    should see an image of folk of Indian sub continent ethnicity ,
    or South East Asia. And not just ones of Afro-Caribbean heritage.BINGO ! You see writing to the BBC can work.
    Some of you may know that I have been a bookmaker. And I
    will offer 1000/1 there being a major image of a pale, stale, male
    in the month of February . On a public interest, feature . Such as
    ” the cost of living.” On the BBC website. I have no fear of having to pay out.

      When a human sees a poll they support
      they typically vote and then like the tweet and probably retweet it

    PMQ’s today, quotes of extracts from a couple of Starmer’s questions:

    Q: Does the Prime Minister agree that any politician who seeks to avoid the taxes they owe in this country is not fit to be in charge of taxpayer money?

    Q:Anybody watching would think it is fairly obvious that someone who seeks to avoid tax cannot also be in charge of tax

    Starmer seems not to realise that tax avoidance is perfectly legitimate and legal. Most people don’t realise that everyone is a tax avoider. If you pay money or have money paid into a Pension fund you are a tax avoider. Just one example, there are many others.

    Top gun, dog-eared edition

    Our liberal media does love a game of Tory minister whack-a-mole – knock one on the head and up pops another one – just as dodgy – to target next…

    Even our stately BBC’s, supposedly analytical, online politics news page reads like a stamp collection of Tory shame and incompetence (think Panini football stickers – for the non-philatelically minded) of ad hominem individual accusation

    PMQs: Rishi Sunak denies being ‘hopelessly weak’ over Nadhim Zahawi (BBC)

    Chris Mason: Zahawi’s unanswered questions (BBC)

    Partygate returns: MPs’ investigation looms for Boris Johnson (BBC)

    It’s the only political game in towm. The print press are keen players of Tory whack a mole – one example will suffice:

    Raab faces at least two dozen complaints in bullying inquiry (Guardian)

    Minister-baiting can turn a bit personal in real life (IRL) too: Matt Hancock assault: Police arrest 61-year-old man (BBC)

    One might draw the conclusion that our political Punch and Judy show – with only the Tory Mr Punches tending to appear in the pillory – is either very biased, or perhaps there’s just not that much policy-wise separating the government and opposition party these days?

    I’ll swap you a dog-eared old Liz Truss for a Nadhim Zahawi to stick in your hall of infamy. No way, Truss was a last season collectors’ card – and anyway, you’ve now mixed this metaphore about four different ways!

    Dog-eared, you say – the BBC are on it: American bully dog show cancelled after BBC investigation… Footage gathered by undercover journalists at an ABKC UK show in Manchester showed hundreds of dogs paraded with cropped ears.

    Truss to join rightwing calls for tax cuts in Budget – that’s the pink pages of the Financial Times with a left-flavoured News Briefing headline worthy of an honestly marxist Morning Star screamer

    Speaking of the hard-left, they must be pretty miffed that their medium- to somewhat less hard-left (al dente?) socialist cousins have sold out to the regime: World united against evil – shouts the Labour-supporting socialist-purporting Daily Mirror in full support of more dangerous weapons being sent to prolong the Ukraine war

    The FT feature Datawatch asks the question: Should businesses take political stances? – and I think we can all guess the answer the right-on corporate globalist FT prefers to hear.

    Apparently it’s fashion week: Wardrobe malfunction? Viktor and Rolf on form at Paris fashion week. A model in an upside-down ballgown yesterday, part of the avant-guard Dutch fashion house’s latest collection (Guardian) – don’t imagine it’s just the arty-farty Gruan promoting this to their frontpage, the Times goes with it too.

    Fashion advice for the chaps is to wear something less eye-catching: No jacket required Why men can’t wear leather coats after 39 (Telegraph)

    Plush hour crush: Heart-throb Brad Pitt steps out yesterday in a velour boiler suit… (freebie Metro)

    Wardrobe malfunction, No jacket required – good to see the employment of a tired old cliché is still going strong

    You’ve promised us tanks – tanks very much but do hurry up with them they say: Ukraine war: Zelensky urges speedy delivery of Western tanks (BBC)

    Patrick Cockburn Tanks alone cannot win this war (‘i’)

    Win? I thought the left wanted to stop capitalist-finaced wars?

    What next, now we’ve sent the tanks?

    The military industrial complex (to borrow a former lefty former favourite phrase) steps up…

    Lockhead ramps up F-16 production as Ukraine allies debate sending jets. Contractor can meet demand (FT)

    We need missiles as well as tanks, says Kyiv (Telegraph)

    We do like an ‘and finally’ item that brings a smile but this news is just too serious – and anyway: Laughing gas ban to tackle bad behaviour (Times)

      I think the tank thing is a red herring – water under the bridge of spilt milk – with omelettes of broken eggs . Paddy power should be running a book on when the first tank turns up and does something … I’m thinking 2025 … but the commo might be summer when it’s winter so it will have to be sent back for a respray and winterfication…

      Today
      Language – hundreds of asylum seeking ‘children’ have gone missing …. Which apparently is a bad thing .

      But it’s the ‘children’ which is the weapon so called charities are using for more public money on these vermin – that’s a better world – and a troll magnet .

      Stories of men who have played the system by claiming to be 14 abound .. but not much mention of them . Sink the boats …

    The bbc are all over how wonderful the false president is for sending the Abrams tanks across to Ukraine. I imagine the Russians, when they have captured a couple (Or if the Ukranians sell them on), will say how grateful they are for having access to the latest US military technology. What hold the does the comedian have on western leaders? Emperors new clothes? Sucking up to the class bully? Kickbacks to donating leaders (!0% for the big guy)? Something stinks and I reckon its the latter. Milo Minderbender would be proud.

      They also avoid the fact that supplying those tanks moves the whole conflict up yet another notch.

      I suspect we are not far away from Russia formally declaring the USA and EU are participants and their supply routes to be valid targets.

      I am pretty certain they are already preparing ready in case they decide to do it.

      Dover MP Natalie Elphicke told the Commons that the BBC’s “shocking report” contained the “breath-taking” disclosure of free French public bus services being used to ferry migrants from camps to Dunkirk beaches.

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-63229010

      ….

      Today the BBC journalists Michael Keohan and Colin Campbell released a shocking report on the channel crossings. It showed people smugglers selling their wares brazenly in the migrant camps and many children living in unsafe and dangerous conditions, as well as—this is breathtaking—a free French public bus service that migrants can use to travel directly from the camps to the Dunkirk departure beaches. Will my right hon. Friend allow a statement on the issue of tackling the small boat crossings and the Government’s response in their work with France?

    Leah Croucher murder suspect changed appearance – police
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-64386555
    Lengthy front-page article on a murder 4 years ago where the suspect under discussion also died 4 years ago.

    Meanwhile from today:
    New Cross stabbing: Teenager found guilty of killing 16-year-old boy
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-64405565

    Nowhere to be seen.

    The difference of course is that the suspect in the first is white but the killer in the second is almost certainly black.

    I struggle to understand how 2 men can confront another man while armed with a knife then in the ensuing struggle, the man they confronted is stabbed to death and they get away with manslaughter. I’ve seen this quite a few times now for these kind of killings in Londonistan.

    And of course the huge elephant in the room here for me is how so many of these stabbings are being done by people too young to be named (‘for legal reasons’). It’s a sign that something in society is very, very seriously wrong – but the racist BBC don’t go anywhere near that because they are invariably black.

    The extent we go to protect these savages is ridiculous.

    One for the BBC eco-warriors. Or not.

    Yesterday I took part in a webinar on integrated business planning and corporate alignment. Don’t ask. But bear in mind.

    The other night we were informed that with electricity demand maxing out, people were being paid not to use electricity at a peak period.

    This morning I learn that at the very same time, some wind farms were being paid to switch off the turbines. Apparently wind farms can be built without reference to the transmission infrastructure. So sometimes the electricity produced exceeds the capability to transmit down the lines, so some wind turbines have to be switched off.

    I now refer you to my second paragraph.
    You can glue yourself to the road but without good old-fashioned infrastructure you are dead in the water.

    Total insanity.

        Taxpayers’ millions fuel Ford Transit move to Turkey

        MILLIONS of pounds of taxpayers’ money is being spent to expand a Ford manufacturing plant in Turkey while the car maker is cutting hundreds of jobs in Britain.

        Ford announced last month that the production of Ford Transit vans in Southampton would cease next July with the loss of more than 500 jobs. Further posts will be lost as a result of the closure of stamping and tooling operations in Dagenham, east London.

    I can’t believe it.

    In the last couple of days there has been coverage of large numbers of ‘unaccompanied child refugees’ disappearing from their hotels.
    Knock me down with a feather. Toady admitted this morning that the vast majority of these ‘vulnerable children’ on the rubberised cross channel ferries are male 16-17 year old ( or over) Albanians, often coming over willingly to join the organised crime groups. I suspect the BBC were the last to know.

    Wouldn’t it be fun if the BBC now trawled through all their self-righteous goody two shoes recordings of past interviews with , charities, Shave the Children spokespersons, refugee groups, etc, and ran a compare-and-contrast article in the light of this new disclosure?

    It won’t happen.
    What’s the betting this inconvenient truth will now be quietly forgotten?

      I now wonder what age constitutes as “children”. I know legally its 16, but in my head its anyone up to 12. They are young teens after that. So when I hear that ‘children’ are missing I tend to think of 8 and 9 year olds, certainly not 16 or 17 year olds. And I don’t think there have been any media photos of anyone under 12 travelling on their own has there ?

        Brissles my dear old thing, the really cold weather will be gone soon to be replaced by a chilly and damp start to the cricket home Ashes season with players wearing two sweaters and blowing on their hands. On the subject of migrants the BBC always seem to manage to catch a picture of a black baby or toddler in the arms of a woman arriving in a rib or being lifted onto a Lifeboat when we know that most of the illegals are men of a variety of ages.

        I always take the age up to 12 as childhood although the Americans (we used to use American Scripture Press material in the Youth Group) have this lovely word ‘pre-teens’ for 11 and 12 year olds. Then its teenagers all the way to 19. Harold Wilson tried the stunt of lowering the Voting Age from 21 to 18 years in the 1960s thinking it would garner another win for Labour. Like a lot of my peers, I took revenge by voting for Ted Heath. Then Ted Heath thanked us by tanking the economy (Ted had help) and driving us into Europe but not on a tank. 🙁

    BBC car production at its lowest for 66 years! Oh woe! If those factories close then Labour may not win the next General Election. Well, BBC, you only have yourselves to blame. You fell for the Global Warming is due to CO2 thing big time and allowed no debate despite your mandate to ‘inform, educate and entertain’.

    You BBC also created the-cost-of-living-crisis and helped to get people so worried (shades of AGW & CC there!) that they have stopped spending on new cars unless really affluent or even wealthy. Maybe you should think a bit more before campaigning against a democratically elected Conservative Government?

    GB News is a bastion of free speech which clearly has its finger uniquely on the pulse of public opinion and does not talk down to its viewers and listeners.I have been impressed by the channel’s independent-mindedness and its determination to talk to people with many different perspectives, which is exactly what I will do on my programme.”

    While waiting for the ‘Toad in the hole’ to cook, and with a welcoming glass of red to hand, I checked the BBC website…

    Nothing to see there – move along please…

    (We’ve saved nearly forty quid since cancelling the TV tax)!

    The Telegraph reports that in a letter to Mr Hancock … Mr Bridgen’s legal team outlines its claim against Mr Hancock and the demand for damages.

    Mr Bridgen wants Mr Hancock to “retract and delete the defamatory statement contained in the tweet complained of with immediate effect”.

    It said that he should “apologise for the tweet complained of – both orally in the House of Commons – and in writing on Mr Hancock’s personal Twitter account”.

    He said Mr Hancock should “acknowledge full and final settlement of any prospective claim in the form of a payment of £100,000 – to be transferred into a legal fund on behalf of persons seeking collective redress for vaccine harms (under the UK Government’s Vaccine Damages Payment Scheme)”.

    The legal action is being funded by the Reclaim Party and the Bad Law Project.

    £100K won’t go very far.

    I’m disturbed by the rapist story . If he identifies as a she – surely he / she should be in a female jail . In fact why are there prisons for separate gendas? He now being she – and knowing how wimmin change there minds – surely if she becomes he he should be in a male prison right ?
    I love when the human rights crap give ‘them’ a nose bleed ….

    Hahahahaha,

    Wee Krankie has decided that a rapist who has transitioned cannot serve his/her/its (please select one) in a female prison.

    Isn’t that just a classic example of total SNP hypocrisy given that the said Sturgeon wants ‘children’ as young as 16 to be able to determine their ‘gender’ unemcumbered by officialdom?

    Or could it be that the main purpose of the Gender Recognition Bill was always political – to back the spineless Westminster ‘Tory’ government into a politically correct woke corner ?

    400, yes 400 tanks would be nice!

    Transgender rapist Isla Bryson will not be imprisoned in women’s jail
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-64413242

    So the first time the ‘they are women with a penis’ argument is put to the real test, the entire argument collapses when they decide the person is really a man and cannot be put with women.

    Yet the BBC still refer to that person as ‘she’ through the whole article.

    Are these woke cretins unable to see what complete fools this has made of them all ?.

      In the Soviet Union, the government lied to the people. The people knew they were being lied to. The government knew that the people knew they were being lied to. But that was the point: not to try to persuade the population of the fantasies, but to humiliate and subjecticate them by forcing to accept what they knew to be outright lies. So it is with the BBC. They haven’t the slightest interest in whether anyone outside of their bubble believes a word they say: they just have to go along with the facade and not make any fuss.

        Remember before the war in Ukraine started and most of the ‘soldiers’ preparing to fight we saw on the BBC were young women who clearly had never held a rifle before in their lives.

        Don’t see any of those any more do we ?.

        It’s quite incredible how easily they lie. They have absolutely no conscience whatsoever : the agenda justifies everything.
