    Look North tonight on BBC1 and Peter Levy interviews a local contestant on The Apprentice. She made reference to her female partner. Is there no escape? Is it now like all the other BBC contests? One gay man, tick. One gay woman. Tick. One brash contestant of ME origin. Tick. One from the Indian sub-continent. Tick. One of British heritage who is such an idiot, he hasn’t a cat in Hell’s chance of winning. Tick. They showed a few brief clips of the present series. All I can say is that the contestants looked ghastly and the format dated. I watched the odd series at its start. Now from the clips I saw, I would rather watch paint dry.

      BBC News
      Looks like the BBC is going big on a foreign story – police wrongdoing in the US . The video of 5 cops beating a black man to death is to be released Friday night…..

      The half wit BBC reporter in in US asked whether the incident was ‘because of racism’ – the question was put to the police chief who was both female ish and coloured …. The reporter seems to not know the 5 cops were the same colour as the dead man – coloured ….
      I suppose the standard ‘race’ question is such a knee jerk reaction that the details – like the colour of the cops ‘ skin is assumed to be white ….


      • Sluff says:

        Yeah. That’s really torn it. What are the racebaiters going to do now?

        Black guy beaten up by cops. In the USA. The BBC are salivating. Again. How weird.

        When any cop in this situation is white, then the charge is racism. Not brutality. Not abuse of position. Not thugs in uniform. Nope it must be racist.

        But now. What is it now? Perhaps the BLM organisation could let us know.
        A tricky one for the BBC. Well deserved.

          What happens now?

          F*ck it. Riot and set fire to everything anyway.


          • JohnC says:

            Looting. Don’t forget the looting.


            • BRISSLES says:

              Would there be such protests if the victim was white and beaten to death by 5 black cops ? I think not, but I think it would have inflamed a bigger situation with nationalists taking to the streets.


      • JohnC says:

        First thing which came my mind was whether these policemen got recruited BECAUSE they are black and the force had a specific quota to fill.

        When you recruit people based on quotas instead of suitability, the quality of the end result plummets. As the BBC themselves have so eloquently demontsrated.

        But of course there is no way the BBC or any other Lefty will go near that one. They are only running this story because they have to : it will be quickly dropped and there will be no follow-on articles.


      • G says:

        Further evidence for the mindless propensity to violence these people instinctively share. Perhaps research should be put into why.


      • NCBBC says:

        The BBC is not going for the Big Story. Far from it, its distracting from any really disconcerting news, which has been the Green agenda since forever.


        The conspiracy theory that the WEF and Globalists were upto something evil, may not be a conspiracy.


  3. Eddy Booth says:

    “The head of the United Nations’ refugee agency has accused Moscow of violating “fundamental” child protection principles by giving Russian passports to unaccompanied child refugees.”

    He’s never been to Dover then…

    ‘Ukrainian children had been taken from orphanages in the eastern Donbas region and “forcibly deported” to Russia.’

    Russia is just moving them out of the war zone?
    Sounds like another guilty untill proved innocent article..


    • StewGreen says:

      I’ve actually visited an orphanage in the Donbass
      It’s a story I get in a few countries
      “Ah look we have these orphans we need you to help to get them to America or the UK so they can have a better life”
      To which my reply is “The parents of these children are not dead, are they ?”
      Ans “No they are alive but they are bad or mentally ill people”

      The bottomline is that children belong with their parents , in the culture they were born in
      And that money should be spent helping the parents rather than exporting the children to another country.
      And as some parents are dangerous, the second best option is to use money to support adoption inside that country.
      Foreigners turning up in a country and taking away cute babies is a form of cultural imperialism.
      Countries need to learn that their own children are their own responsibility
      It’s not up to western countries to clean up after them.

      That particular orphanage is in Russian controlled area now and is not at risk from Ukrainian weapons unless Russian forces are operating next door.
      Though hopefully the children have already been evacuated to safe places in Ukraine.


    • NCBBC says:

      If they are children and unvaccinated, they have a far better chance of surviving the trials of life because of natural immunity, then those who have been vaccinated. The vaccine it now turns out, not only does nothing for you, but is likely responsible for myocarditis and resulting death. And if not, kills your natural immunity. See latest from Dr John Campbell. Unfortunately he cannot speak his mind, as the champions of free speech do not like it.

      No wonder the authorities are clamping down on free speech even though the matter is not politics. But it is.


  4. Sluff says:

    It’s another triumph for multiculturalism, equality, diversity, positive discrimination, and quotas.

    A member of the British Army has been charged with terrorist offences.
    His name.
    Daniel Abed Khalif.

    Enough said.
    At the time of writing, this story is not on the BBC webshite.

    Also enough said.


    • JohnC says:

      British Army serviceman charged with terror offence

      Here it is.

      The BBC are as slipery as eels. Here’s the picture they use : not a brown arm to be seen:

      Then we get the quote:
      ‘..charged with placing an article “with the intention of inducing in another a belief that the said article was likely to explode or ignite and thereby cause personal injury or damage to property” ‘

      It’s a bomb. Why is everybody trying to cover up what these people do ?.

      I also note that the BBC now use the word ‘terror’ but not ‘terrorist’ for all of these articles involving Muslims. It’s definitely a new policy from ‘board-room level’ (he says looking upwards).

      I did find a picture of him from the ‘Northern Echo’:

      There he is look : on the left hand side.


      • Zephir says:

        Bloody amazing the far left racist bbc publish white male pictures !

        thats the real news

        A first in last few years


      • JohnC says:

        Just reading that gobbledygook statement again, it sounds like he pretended he had a bomb when he didn’t.

        This is one of those stories that simultaneously appears in all the news feeds and they all say exactly the same thing. As usual nobody goes anywhere near the fact he is another Muslim.

        No searching his social media or digging into his personal history for those.

        From what we are actually told, he could be one of those 59% far-right terrorists the BBC told us about – which is what I suspect the BBC are trying to make the ignorant masses think with their whiteys-only picture. We have to deduce he isn’t.


      • G says:

        Wow, far left in 2nd photo: I spy with my little eye…………….
        Surely the BBC could have reduced the photo width to remove a black hand…………(in keeping with their policy you understand)


        • JohnC says:

          G, the second photo is from somewhere else.

          The BBC chose a different one where everyone is white. And it cannot be just coincidence because all the other pictures they choose have BAME in them.

          Story about ‘good’ = Pictures of BAME
          Story about ‘Bad’ = Pictures of whites.

          My favourite is still the story about stabbings where they showed a very clear white hand holding a knife. They are absolutely racist – but a sneaky, dirty, dishonest kind.


    • StewGreen says:

      @Sluff the BBC story was up 13 minutes after you posted
      The timestamp 2023-01-27 T23:02:51
      description”:”The 21-year-old serviceman is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday.”

      However not much PR
      Someone tweeted the BBC story 2 hours after your post
      BBCnews didn’t tweet it until 9:17am Saturday that’s 10 hours after you

      The “article” bit is a quote, it’s not from the BBC’s mind
      “The Met’s Counter-Terrorism Command said “


      • StewGreen says:

        Sluff the BBC reporter had tweeted the facts at 10:15pm
        that’s before any other media
        & 35 mins before you posted


      • JohnC says:

        I’ve noticed the BBC are obliged to repeat official information such as the quote I used above.

        Whether they embelish the story with additional information depends on the agenda. If he were far-right for example, they would investigate his social media and background and find pictures.


  5. Sluff says:

    Coverage of a fireman who has died on duty in Scotland. The first such death since 2009.

    So. Not quite such a dangerous occupation after all.
    As mentioned previously, a study showed window cleaning was more dangerous than firefighting. Not that the public know that.

    A triumph of public sector propaganda over reality. Not for the first time. How are our NHS heroes doing in Nottingham maternity services? I only ask because the BBC have dropped coverage of the record £800,000 fine up there faster than you can say ‘pay strike’.


    • StewGreen says:

      Window cleaners don’t arrive at their job to find body parts spread over the road
      PTSD is part of many fire crews job.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Harsh on the fire ‘worker ‘ but right on the spot on the Maternity unit – maybe deserves a name make over ‘baby killing unit ‘ ..
      From the very brief coverage yesterday the judge making the award said that he recognised £800k was a lot to hit the health trust for but they deserved it ….

      .. afterwards the trust chief exec used ‘lessons will be learned ‘ – managed to keep a straight face – maybe it was the day in the month he gets his pay – £20k a month .

      It seems to me that taxpayers deserve to know the names of those responsible – but this country is so undemanding / conditioned that it accepts such practice ….


  6. Eddy Booth says:

    “LIVEMemphis braces for release of Tyre Nichols arrest video”
    “The video at the heart of the matter will be released around 18:00 local time (00:00 GMT Saturday)”

    Well don’t release it then,
    just something for creepy people to enjoy watching.
    What’s the point anyway- won’t it prejudice a jury.


  7. Zephir says:

    It did not take long did it ? for the peddlers of hate and division to come out from under their stone, its whitees fault after all:

    “CNN’s Van Jones says Tyre Nichols’ death might have been ‘driven by racism’ despite Black cops being charged”

    Or, more accurately, for those who make a living out of peddling their own racism and hate, and stoking up race hate for their own twisted ends:

    “Van Jones, CEO of Reform Alliance, a newly formed organization to reform the U.S. criminal justice system”.

  9. Fedup2 says:

    As predicted the BBC is going big on an event in a foreign country which is 4365 miles away – 5 coloured cops beating a coloured suspect to death .

    Why exactly is this ?

    Is it because we see so many American cop shows ? Is it the common language ? Is it the BBC fixation with race?

    I really don’t get it . Surely there is enough police misconduct / criminality in the UK for the BBC to be satisfied with that ? Eg a claim yesterday that the latest baddy allegedly raped a lady cop who did nothing about it ,

    Today spent of 20 – 20 minutes in the 805am slot – there is nothing more relevant to the UK than that ?

    I’m so glad I don’t pay for the monster .

    PS – notice the NHS case yesterday of a NHS maternity unit killing a baby – being fine £800 000 – appears nowhere in the national BBC news … maybe baby lives don’t matter ? Now the weather .

      The suspects arrest shouldn’t have resulted in his death, same for G Floyd
      Same for the black soldier in Hull
      and the Hull white learning difficulties guy who went out with an axe (both ruled illegal police killings)

      I wonder how the tame liberal so called ‘press ‘ reacted to this claim of ‘success ‘? I’m guessing they just stayed silent and looked at their iPhones …

      But it does show what the effect of lack of proper scrutiny achieves …. But compare that with the show the BBC did when trump was in power … 100 days … with the frankly disgusting Christian and ‘katty’ stabbed president trump every day for a 30 minute propaganda show .

      Surely – even in the limited coverage of Biden/Obama thar we get from the BBC – there is enough to do 30 minutes a day on Obama / Biden . But no .

      The BBC is fair and honest and balanced – the best broadcaster in the world ….

      Maybe the coloured girl just wanted to wind up Tucker – that would be ‘success ‘.


  11. Scroblene says:

    CNN, (BBC’s feed) latest news …

    Silas Conrad Riley O’Blene, 75, a white, married, heterosexual, indigenous British male was today charged with being racist by buying black grapes which were on offer in Tesco.

    “I just wanted to allay the cost of living by purchasing this luxury while they were cheap”, he explained to Inspector Knacker of The Yard!

    Mr O’Blene was tasered twice, peppered seven times, shot three times in the leg, blindfolded and handcuffed to a parked concrete lorry and issued with a warrant for the confiscation of all his possessions, his house, his dog and also Senora O’Blene, 74, a white married heterosexual, indigenous British female.

    The case was adjourned until Inspector Knacker had made further enquiries at Tesco’s Head Office.

    (message ends).

    Discussion about over 50s choosing not to work – solution – cut benefits .


  13. pugnazious says:

    Just coincidence I guess.

    The Telegraph reports on Thursday…

    ‘Met Police recruit ‘functionally illiterate in English’ in attempt to improve diversity ‘
    ‘Applicants to the police who can barely write in English are being accepted by the Met in an attempt to improve diversity, one of His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has warned.

    HMI Matt Parr said that while it was entirely “noble and right” that Scotland Yard was aiming to be more representative of the community it policed, it should not be at the expense of standards.’

    The BBC today possibly counters on the sly….

    ”I couldn’t read or write but now I’m saving lives”
    ‘A man who couldn’t read or write until he was in his 20s has spoken of his pride after becoming a paramedic.

    Richard Henton, from Bestwood Village, Nottinghamshire, who has dyslexia, had always dreamed of wearing the green uniform but some teachers told him he was not working hard enough at school.’

    Just coincidence I’m sure, not the BBC trying to indirectly suggest that police officers who are illiterate and bame shouldn’t be judged badly.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Do you notice how big pub,ic institutions like plod and the NHS have very few ‘? whistleblowers ‘- ie people who tell tax payers about bad things in their outfits ?

      Is it the promise of the pension ? Is it fear ?


      • StewGreen says:

        The NHS had a habit of muzzling potential whistleblowers by making severance pay dependent on Non Disclosure agreements.

  15. AsISeeIt says:

    As though we couldn’t have guessed – this morning our BBC spills the beans on how Big Media carefully curates and censors the language used by journos: The Associated Press, the biggest news agency in the United States, has apologised after it was ridiculed for warning journalists against referring to “the French” (BBC)

    One has to smile when one notes the stock image – care of Getty – carefully chosen and employed BBC online news as illustrative of potentially offending white male hands poised above the keyboard.

    The AP stylebook Twitter account had recommended writers avoid using “the” in phrases like “the disabled, the poor and the French”. It said this could be dehumanising. (BBC)

    But…but… as our blunt no nonsense beautiful British comic character the Pub Landlord, steaped in ancient barroom wisdom, has pointed out in his round the globe shtick about foreigners of all stripes – “France, or THE France as it prefers to call itself. La France. In case we should confuse it with some other France! Like reliable turning up in time of battle France”

    Forgive him his mildly xenophobic stereotyping for comic effect – forgive and forget and all that – we mustn’t keep harping on about German tanks invading Russia anymore – but he has a point about La France.

    The BBC are happy to join in the comedy – making light of the heavy hand of the censor in this case: The French embassy responded by briefly changing its name to the “Embassy of Frenchness in the United States” (BBC)

    Language is important in telling our news stories. Media outlets tend to have their house styles.

    One example from this morning will suffice.

    Daily Telegraph: Workman crushed to death by pop-up urinal

    Daily Star: Man killed by a telescopic bog

    What value an ace newspaper cartoonist such as Matt – were stories like that to be a daily occurence?

    After two years of warning us to stay away from work because it was dangerous and scary to step outside the frontdoor – exploding pop-up lavatories not pertaining – unless it was to clap or bang a pot for our brilliant brave and hardworking NHS… the government now notices workers are demoralised and the economy is bust… and people don’t like it… and might just tend to blame the government.

    Once again there’s a noteworthy diversity of language and tone – as different titles relaying the same report speak to what they envisage as being their particular constuency

    Over 50s told: Don’t just retire and play golf (Times)

    Hunt’s ‘perks’ WILL help millions work again (Daily Express)

    Pensions shake-up to keep over-50s in work (Daily Mail)

    The BBC are meanwhile banging on about some black fella in an incident across the pond which must be all the rage in their office. We’ve heard it all before… not interested… doesn’t affect us UK licence payers one jot.

    The State has a range of nudge carrot and taxation sticks with which to influence our behaviour. I do like this detail: The employment perks are expected to include tax breaks for over-50s who keep working, plus “mid-life MOTs” by financial advisors who will check that employees thinking of early retirement really can afford to quit (Daily Express) – in other words people looking forward to their retirement will have the reality of the cost of living bejesus frightened out of them by a bloke with a spreadsheet. How very Rishi Sunak.

    The FT doen’t run its regular Datawatch feature frontpage today but still has a datapoint for us: High demand for chrysanthemums a sign of surging Covid deaths in China

    Someone has been busy reading the runes – reminds us of this one: Shop loyalty card data may help spot ovarian cancer… Tracking what shoppers buy, via loyalty-card data, can help spot those with early signs of cancer, doctors who have been running a study say. (BBC)

    You see, we’ll all be so much happier and healthier if we’re all tracked and traced to the crony-corporate-state’s digital Nth degree

    Talking of finger-in-the-air surveys extrapolated to the Nth degree into frontpage policy pronouncement dimensions: Brexit regrets growing… – screams the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper.

    Despite, as the ‘i’ has to admit: – but UK not eager to rejoin EU… no majority to rejoin Europe, with British deadlocked 43% to 41%

    No change there then. I think you’ll find that’s still pretty much the same majority in favour of Brexit. But I’m sure they will let us know the very moment that changes.

    Hate facebook but it does make me laugh sometimes.

    Surprised someone dared to post an emoji of a monkey at the top. Isn’t that a criminal offence now according to the fascist Left ?.


  18. pugnazious says:

    Hate, we are now told, sees no colour.

    After 7/7 the BBC’s first response was to ask ‘What drove these young British men to do this?’….the BBC’s own answer was ‘Britain’ drove them to do it….Britain was to blame not Islam, not their community and mentality, not the terrorists themselves…White, racist, anti-Islam Britain did this…just as Palestinian terrorists are ‘driven’ to do what they do by Israeli oppression and war crimes…they have no other weapon….they are forced to be terrorists in order to resist and repel the savage, illegal occupiers.

    Now we hear that when 5 black officers beat a black man to death it’s not about colour, these young officers were almost forced to overreact in the violent way they did by police culture, the ‘system’ that drew them in and corrupted them…..so ‘What drove these young black officers to do this?’….answer…racist America.

    Hmmm….odd how when the officers are white no such narrative is fed to us…then it’s always racism….until the BBC finds out that the officers are black, hispanic or Asian…then it’s ‘police brutality’…the ‘system’.

    If the victim is white, regardless of the colour of the officers, then it’s just not news.

    This BBC report is extraordinary….well, no, it’s the norm for the BBC as it uses completely different rules to explain away Black police officers’ violence.


    Rather than a straight case of police brutality the killing has to be explained and motives and blame apportioned…..

    ‘As their lawyer, civil rights attorney Ben Crump, spoke, PJ turned the volume up on the barbershop TV.

    But if he and the VIP patrons were looking for a straightforward answer to this latest incident of police brutality, they wouldn’t get one. ‘

    Nothing straightforward here…nope….guess you have to work pretty hard to twist and turn to make this into a story about racist cops…but the BBC manages it…..even whilst trumpeting claims that the officers’ race doesn’t matter….

    ‘”It’s not about the colour of the police officer. We don’t care if it’s black, white, pink, purple. What they did was wrong,” she said.’

    However…naturally it’s still a race issue…..because this never happens to white people….

    ‘Mr Nichols’ mother, RowVaughn Wells, told the BBC that it was the race of the victim – in this case her son – and not the race of the perpetrators that mattered….what they’re doing to the black communities is wrong. We’re not worried about the race of the police officer. We’re worried about the conduct of the police officers.”‘

    Er huh!…sure…if the victim had been white you wouldn’t give a damn about the conduct of the officers.

    Lol….the BBC asks…

    ‘ There is no clear answer as to why these officers attacked Mr Nichols and how, exactly, the race of all six men may have led to his death.’

    erm…..how exactly did the officers’ race lead to this attack? Sure the BBC will find a way to make race the issue….oh…maybe it’s ‘The System’…..you know…innocent black officers just wanting to do their best for their communtiy, to protect and serve, but corrupted and turned into savages by the ‘whiteness’ of a police system created by white people…they just wanted to integrate so became racists who hunted down unarmed black people just like their fellow white cops do.

    Oh hang on…the same but different….somehow this killing is ‘different’ to those done by whites…..

    ‘More difficult to discuss perhaps, was the race of the police officers themselves. All five of the men, now facing murder charges, are black too.

    It makes Mr Nichols’ death feel different, he added.

    It looked different, too, from some of the most infamous cases of police violence or killings involving black victims and primarily white officers: Rodney King in Los Angeles, Michael Brown in Ferguson, and George Floyd in Minneapolis.’

    Why is it different? And again the BBC blatantly puts Michael Brown in there as an innocent, unarmed black man, killed by racist police….he was a violent thug who attacked a policeman and tried to take his gun…..justice, as the jury judged, was served.

    ‘”It’s a shame, it’s embarrassing,” said a man named London, adding that it’s painful to add yet another name to the long list of unarmed black men killed by police.’

    Race has nothing to do with this and yet…..the BBC pushes and pushes that angle and tries to associate it with other killings that the BBC has decided were racist….and let’s be clear, race almost certainly played no part in the death of George Floyd.

    Hmmm…‘”The mentality of what I saw, it’s very difficult to explain,” she said, adding that she “can’t answer” if the encounter would have ended differently had Mr Nichols been white.’

    If he’d been white this would not have been a story…not even about ‘The System’ and police brutality….it would have been reported and quickly forgotten as so many other killings of whites by police have been.

    And then he twisting of the narrative goes into overdrive….the officers were black but they were ‘racist’….black people are seen as violent and so get killed regardless of the officer’s colour….

    ‘Professor Hoag agrees. The race of police officers is not the primary issue, she said. Instead, it’s a problem of policing.

    “Policing in this country is focused on control, subordination and violence – regardless of the race of the officer,” she said. “Society views black people as inherently dangerous and criminal… even if you have black people in the position of law enforcement, that doesn’t mean that proposition goes away.”

    “We do know that there is more anti-black bias among white officers than black officers but we also know that black people and black officers have anti-black bias too. We’re talking about a difference in degree,” said Khalil Gibran Muhammad a professor of race and public policy at Harvard Kennedy School.

    The Stanford prison experiment tells us that “bad things happen in places built to do bad things”, he said. “Anyone who dons the uniform is more likely on average to engage in abusive behaviour directed toward a black person.”

    Rodney King, in his memoir, talked about being abused by white and black officers alike.

    Frank Sykes, a former Tennessee deputy sheriff, who is also African American, told the BBC this abusive behaviour comes down to how officers are trained – something that caused him to leave the force. ….Officers “will judge a person off a look because you’ve been trained if ‘they look this way, they’re bad'”, he said.’

    Get that? It’s The System, America is racist!….and of course this will somehow be turned into a story about policing here as well.

    Note this lie…..

    ‘According to data collection by Mapping Police Violence, black people in the US are approximately three times more likely to be killed in comparison to their white counterparts. ‘

    Just not true…..the real facts are that whites are more likely to be killed in proportion than blacks.

    The BBC is whipping up race hysteria, division and hate.

    It is the most dangeorus, toxic, hate-mongering organisation in Britain.

      South Africa is hard evidence that the lawlessness and violence of the blacks has nothing whatsoever to do with living in a white society.

    Our BBC does like a lefty-orientated rebuttal story

    When a report which exposes some failing ill advised leftist policy emerges in the media our BBC specialises in gifting a counter argument to fellow travellers

    Note for example this BBC story: ‘I couldn’t read or write but now I’m saving lives’… A man who couldn’t read or write until he was in his 20s has spoken of his pride after becoming a paramedic.

    Why are we treated to this – not exactly news snippet today?


    Why, this one in the Times yesterday of course : Met Police recruits illiterate, says watchdog

    Spot the timely lefty rebuttal story – it’s another little bias game we can all join in.

    Jordan Peterson’s recent podcast with Victor Davis Hanson is a must see. It covers how the way of life of the USA is being systematically destroyed by Wokism . The very fabric of society is being ripped apart . The same is true of the UK , indeed in some aspects we seem to further down the road to hell than the USA.
    Whilst VDH recognises that Trump or leaders like him might be able to defeat Wokism , Peterson is a little unsure about backing Trump. Like so many others , eg Douglas Murray , he sees the damage that Wokism is doing but he shies away from a Trumpian war on woke because he fears that it might lead to full blown fascism.
    Personally I think that all Trump was trying to do was give people back their democratic rights and the power of their vote. If someone isn’t able to do that soon it will be too late . The clock might already be past midnight.

    Taking their good time…..

    ‘Israeli police have arrested 42 people in connection with a deadly shooting at a synagogue in East Jerusalem on Friday.

    Seven people were killed, and at least three more injured, in the deadliest attack of its kind in years.

    Two people were also injured on Saturday in a separate attack outside the Old City.

    Israeli police said the gunman in Saturday’s attack was a 13-year-old boy.

    They said he had been “neutralised”, but did not give further details.

    The attack took place in the Silwan neighbourhood, just outside Jerusalem’s Old City. The injured pair were a father and son who were in a “moderate to serious condition”, police added.

    In response to the two attacks, authorities have positioned officers from a counter-terrorism unit “permanently” in the Jerusalem area to “promptly respond to exceptional events whenever necessary”.’

    Only after this long intro do we learn that the shooter was Palestinian…and note…the BBC doesn’t mention who the dead are, their religion or nationality, in the synagogue attack in the intro either.

    Contrast with the BBC’s report on Israeli military actions in Jenin….immediately noting who did what to whom….

    ‘This is the most deadly Israeli raid into Jenin refugee camp in nearly two decades.

    Nine Palestinians were killed when troops reportedly encircled buildings amid a storm of gunfire, grenades and tear gas in the packed urban camp.

    Palestinian officials say two of the dead were civilians, including a 61-year-old woman, while militant groups claim the other seven as members. ‘

    Best interpretation – Some people at HMRC obviously have non existent English comprehension skills.

    Preferred explanation here – this is flat out misconduct in public office.

    Tax avoidance is legitimate and legal – Tax evasion is the opposite.


    • G says:

      I had reason to talk to HMRC a couple of years ago and during that conversation I was quite amazed to hear the representative quote, within a few pounds, how much interest I had earned on my banks interest bearing current account. Then not surprised when she quoted the balance of a savings account elsewhere. They rely on your ‘test of honesty’ when you submit a return. If it doesn’t tally with what they already know beforehand you become a dishonest tax suspect. CBDC’s? I say roll on the time when they need to know how many sheets of paper I use on the toilet.

    Kathy back on twitter

    … the public sector workforce size has been growing as fast since 2018 as it did under New Labour and Stalinist Brown. I haven’t noticed much of an improvement in public service and I’m pretty sure you haven’t either. For all the promises of increased efficiency from technology, we now have 370,000 more people in public service than we did eight years before the iPhone was released. Does anyone have a clue what they’re doing, let alone what value they are adding?

    If Hunt needs to cut spending he should start with a recruitment freeze (which costs nothing) and then take a hard and prejudiced look a what value those extra 370,000 deliver. If their employment cost is £50K each that’s £19billion of cuts right there, which is about what he’s looking for in his corporation tax rise.

    Never Again Is Now Global — The Film: Holocaust survivors & children of survivors express their shock at today’s fear-mongering and divisive dictates that are reminiscent of the prelude to the Holocaust. Today a German court is seeking to forcefully vaccinate an 85-year-old Jewish composer and Holocaust survivor, Inna Zhvenetskaya. The order, issued last month, would authorise medical support staff to remove her from her home, calling on police force if needed, and transport her to a psychiatric institution where she would be held until December 2024, so that she may be administered two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine against her consent. Vera Sharav, Holocaust survivor, says that the forced medical order represents a ‘sliding backwards’ into an abominable past. The court’s description of Zhvenetskaya as ‘a danger to self plus others’ is reminiscent of the Nazi era in which the same terminology was used as an excuse for mass psychiatric incarceration to rid society of the ‘economic burden’ of the elderly population.

    Jerusalem shooting: Thirteen-year-old Palestinian held over second attack in days

    Anyone see this on the front page ?.

    Nope ?. me neither.

    The key point about this story is that some gutter-level scum from Palestine have very clearly trained and conditioned a 13 year old boy then sent him out to kill as many as possible before he got killed himself.

    It’s as low as you can get. Just imagine what the BBC would write if Putin did it. Yet they’ve buried the whole story because it doesn’t fit their agenda. They don’t care one bit what those Muslim scum did with that boy.

    And in the article they write: ‘… adding that the “terrorist” is being treated in hospital.’

    Why add your own double-quotes to a quotation of someone else BBC ?. Only reason I can think of is that you don’t think he is really a terrorist.

    I despise the ethics of the BBC in the same way as I despise the ethics of the Nazi leadership. They believe whatever they do, however low they sink to do it, the end result to achieve their perfect ideological society justifies it all.

    A maternity nurse is accused of planning a terrorist attack using a home-made bomb. Quite a big story, one might have thought, not least because of the striking contrast between a nurse and a terrorist.

    How strange, then, that the story doesn’t appear on the Home page of the BBC webshite. Nor under UK, nor England. You have to drill down past Regions to Leeds and West Yorkshire to find a small thumbnail of the story.

    The suspect’s name? Mohammad Farooq.

    Oh, I see.

    Now, imagine one of those mythical white supremacists had been planning a bomb attack on a mosque: I wonder how many column inches the story would have got on the Home page, not to mention topping the news, on the hour, every hour; and a full investigation into all the suspect’s contacts, and every Google search he’d ever done, or site he’d visited.

    TOADY Watch #1 – more of ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’ that isn’t a crisis. Sunny Jim Callaghan was right!

    TOADY featured a couple who were obviously affluent enough to stop and had stopped working. Then they interviewed a female GP, no trace of irony there. It is said that female GPs either working part-time or retiring early and living off the income of their Practices, is one reason why it is impossible to see a NHS GP these days.

    This GP, a Dr Ford, explained that people were coming to see her and insisting that they were given ‘a sick note’ because of Covid-19 or because they were looking after someone who was sick with PVF. They were then living on Benefits thanks to the UK Taxpayers. I note that there was no protest that the Benefits were too mean or stingy, which is what I normally hear courtesy of the BBC.

    Obviously they are far too generous.
