    Projection is a libmob characteristic
    Here is Matthew Sweet ending his long thread SNEERING against Mark Steyn

    And now Mark Steyn is retweeting new-fascist nose-powder enthusiast Tommy Robinson
    speaking up for him and claiming that three @GBNEWS presenters have asked him onto the channel
    but been overruled by their bosses.
    I wonder which three are his biggest fans?

    A few days ago MP Andrew Bridgen was torn apart merely for QUOTING someone who mentioned the holocaust
    Yet Sweet feels it’s OK to smear-label someone who is nowhere near a “fascist” as a “fascist”
    .. that is of course “fascist” ..ie projection

        Here I unroll the rest of the Sweet’s bitter and shouty thread

        Question is, will all the conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxers who appear on the channel be subject to the same conditions?
        If so, I suspect the @GBNews is doomed.
        Its viewers already hate the recent slight change of tone on the channel.
        @GBNews without cranks would be like the Windmill Theatre without the strippers. (bitter attempt at a joke there)
        Will it survive the year, I wonder?
        Cranks and wingnuts and QAnon barmpots
        – many of them @GBNEWS regulars – react to the news.

        Oh dear. More disquiet and outrage from the assorted purebloods and Icke-fluffers of the
        @GBNEWS extended universe.
        And now Mark Steyn is retweeting new-fascist nose-powder enthusiast Tommy Robinson speaking up for him and claiming that three @GBNEWS presenters have asked him onto the channel but been overruled by their bosses. I wonder which three are his biggest fans?
        And it was 2007 when his former colleagues at @TheAtlantic puzzled over whether he was actually in favour of the genocide of Bosnian muslims.

    I wonder if Sweet complained about this GBnews regular asserting there was ZERO risk from mRNA “vaccines”

    When the truth is they didn’t kill most of us, but they did kill a handful at least.. there was a tiny risk

      You may have noticed the excess deaths across Europe and the US starting in 2021. Currently, in the UK they are the equivalent of four large jetliners crashing every day in this country. These are not a few deaths. Probably everyone in the UK knows someone who has died or been seriously injured by these injections. Of course, most will not make the connection for obvious reasons. The truth is the truth and you cannot run away from it.

    From the Guardian – an account of the exit of Mark Steyn from the failing so called GBNews — note that no comments were allowed on this –

    One of GB News’s leading presenters has quit after the channel tried to make him personally responsible for paying fines issued by the media regulator Ofcom.

    Mark Steyn, who presented the station’s 8pm peak-time slot, is already subject to two investigations by the media regulator after he used his show to cast doubt on the safety of Covid vaccines.

    The presenter’s departure has led some viewers of GB News – which has given airtime to conspiracy theorists warning of a globalist elite takeover – to suggest the channel has itself sold out to shadowy globalist forces.

    Steyn, who has been off-air since last year after suffering two heart attacks, told fans on his personal website that the station bosses initially insisted he could not return unless a defibrillator was fitted in the studio.

    He said this was fixed with a call to “Defibrillators R Us”, only for Angelos Frangopoulos, GB News’s chief executive, to demand Steyn agree to personally cover the costs of dealing with Ofcom and paying any fines for breaches of the broadcasting code. This is a highly unusual situation given the fines are the legal responsibility of the broadcast licence holder, not the individual presenter.

    Steyn, who was employed on a freelance basis, said his response was that “you may be a homicidal maniac intent on bringing on a third fatal heart attack but you’ll have to do better than this”.

    The presenter said he used to call GB News’s in-house compliance officer “Ofcom’s bitch” when they argued about what he was allowed to say on air.

    “Well Ofcom’s bitch has had his revenge now,” said Steyn in his video.

    Steyn said the proposal would be untenable. “I’m on the hook for Ofcom fines but I don’t have any say in our defence against an Ofcom complaint – that’s all done by GB News. Ofcom’s bitch, as I call the compliance officer, will be making the weedy defence to Ofcom and then I’m the one who has to pay the £40,000 fine,” he added.

    Although Ofcom has the ability to regulate the content of broadcast television and radio channels, it has no control over online streams – meaning Steyn is able to broadcast whatever he wants online to a potentially bigger audience without any intervention.

    The contractual terms offered to Steyn suggest GB News bosses are concerned about the impending judgment in the Ofcom investigations – which could scare away some of its remaining advertisers. Earlier this year all staff were put on mandatory Ofcom training.

    Bosses are also warning of a tough financial environment, with the channel now financially supported by Sir Paul Marshall, the Brexiter hedge fund tycoon who also backs Unherd, and Legatum, the Dubai-based investment company founded by the New Zealand billionaire Christopher Chandler.

    On Monday Frangopoulos told staff that the channel would be “pivoting sharply towards financial sustainability and profit”, meaning cuts to the number of freelance shifts, reductions in taxi bills and cuts to the amount of money paid to guests. Despite the tough trading conditions, they have still signed up new presenters including Jacob Rees-Mogg and John Cleese.

    The channel said: “GB News takes Ofcom compliance extremely seriously. All our presenters are expected to comply fully with the broadcast code and there are no exceptions. This does not impinge on our ability to ask tough questions, express strong opinions and debate the issues that matter to the people of Britain.”ENDS

    At 15, Shamima Begum left London to join the terror group Islamic State. It made global headlines. She and her two friends became known as the Bethnal Green Girls. Four years later,

    pregnant with her third child, Begum emerged from the ashes of the so-called caliphate, desperate to come home. But she showed little remorse for her time with the group. The British government decided she was a threat and took away her citizenship, leaving her in a Syrian prison camp. Her lawyers claim she is a victim of trafficking and should be allowed to return to the UK.

    For the first time, she’s given her account of what happened since 2014 to investigative journalist Josh Baker. He’s been following her story since the day she left, trying to understand what really happened. For more than a year, he’s retraced her journey, piecing together where she went, who she met and what she did while she was living with IS to try and find out the truth about Shamima Begum’s story.

    Panic stations in this all but edition

    Let’s start with an advert: The British Military – available for weddings, funerals and coronations.

    I’m reminded of black and white US TV comic character Sergeant Bilko (there’s one for the teenagers) the conniving platoon leader would introduce new recruits with a long list of his gambling and entertainment scams… bingo, cards, sweep stakes, social dances… then finally say: “But lest we forget, there is a military aspect to this man’s army… there will be route marches on Wednesdays, weather permitting”

    Health news

    The story used to be that it was OUR NHS. Now we get this revealing quote from the nurses in the Daily Mirror: Nurses: We fear end for our NHS

    Ours… meaning theirs…? I can’t keep up with all these fancy new pronoun changes.

    But seriously, I think what we actually have here is a frank admission of what we suspected all along – the NHS belongs to those who make a living off it. No wonder they thought to save it with that novel pandemic tactic of slamming the hospital doors shut and putting up a big closed for business sign.

    Our media – and our governmental masters – do enjoy a bit of panic stations…

    No, this isn’t a railway story, although there’s this one in the news: HS2 cost cuts threaten to slash route and add delays (FT) – delays on a line that hasn’t even opened yet.

    We probably shouldn’t have started spending public money on this ill-conceived project profiting no one but the corporations building it. Stop now if the thing is bleeding cash. I wonder if the market-orientated FT has ever heard of the sunk cost fallacy?

    Panic stations, a British colloquialism, is defined as a state of alarm or emergency.

    Apparently the economy needs to be on a “war footing”: Call for “war footing” to counter US subsidies… or risk being left behind by President Joe Biden’s massive programme of subsidies, business leaders warn (Telegraph) – I thought we were supposed to be on the same side in the that war against Russia – Sanctions on Putin, Nato and all that? Or have I missed a page of the story somewhere?

    As corporations, the likes of Virgin Atlantic and Heathrow Airport, call for us to be put on a “war footing” – I have strange visions of Sainsbury’s lining up a motely crew of customers for military inspection – like something from episode one of Dad’s Army

    A Captain Mainwaring-like branch manager telling us bogofs are off today and there’s only one loo roll allowed per customer, ‘cos we’re on a “war footing” – while the doubful Sergeant Wilson-like under manager for produce mutters “Do you think that’s wise?”

    But we’ve got our actual military still available for vital defence tasks – other than spying on journalists critical of government policy… and they’re available for weddings, funerals and coronations, right?

    Defenceless – complains the Daily Mail: As fears grow shrinking military will get NO extra cash funding in budget, generals and MPs warn that amid global crisis Britain will be left all but…

    I like the expression all but – a British colloquialism meaning very nearly

    Gone are the days when Britain apparently possessed under our proud historic regimental the colours… about half-a-million Afghan interpreters.

    Our military is now all but done for. Done for is a British colloquialism… Our forces now fit for little more than anti-opposition political cyber pysops, a few fancy dress occasions and a lots of virtue signalling.

    Even if they had some planes the RAF couldn’t scramble an egg these days: RAF chief criticised for ‘cringeworthy’ response over order to prioritise female and ethnic minority recruits (Sky News)

    One perceives a pattern, a template, if you will. Females are forced into a male space – be it the RAF, submarines, the police, the fire brigade, rugby clubs… whatever. There are inevitable complaints about male behaviour. The formerly male space is ordered to become more feminised.

    There’s some optimism around in some media quarters: Britain’s two-stage path to rejoining the EU – this from the marvellously corporate globalist-ly named Gideon Rachman, writing in the FT

    The UK Treasury and Bank of England are desiging a “digital pound” that could supplant banknotes by the end of this decade… ministers and officials think there is likely to be a need for a publicaly backed digital currency that would sit in wallets on a smartphone and could be used for shopping… (FT) – but surely we already have that option of cashless transactions if we want to use it?

    Of course if the State wants to cut out the clearing banks and have just one big central oversight of every transaction, then that’s a different matter.

    Time for one last hurrah this morning for the public sector: Half-term hols hit by new travel chaos… Number of new passports lost hits 5-year high… 1 in 20 waiting over 10 weeks for documents (Daily Star)


    • Fedup2 says:

      But what is the military for ? Ok – say when the NHS can’t do even the simplest stuff 100% of the time it can turn up for the photo op ….
      Crap procurement – crap kit – that shaky armoured car and crap aircraft carriers with foreign airplanes ?

      Do we have nuclear weapons ? Submarines ? Elderly tanks sent off to Jonny foreigner ? Maybe good a royal funerals – but otherwise ? A country being invaded every day ? Millions of third world sucking Blighty dry ?

      I pay my respects at war memorials every so often and think my thoughts – until they are banned of course …

      Just to add – the military has little value unless it is used to really benefit the population of the UK – fighting wars for no reason ( afgee) is just an insult to taxpayers and the poor Sid’s who don’t come back or come back in pieces .

      I’ve not worn military uniform – but have ‘done my bit ‘…

      Standing next to the Chinese vice-premier, Osborne – then chancellor of the exchequer, now the editor of the Evening Standard – announced that China would be investing in Hinkley Point as part of a £2bn deal. The state-owned China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) would own a third of the project.

      As NHS staff across the country grind the health service to a halt with strike action, the TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) has uncovered some of the fun activities they’ll likely be missing out on as they hit the picket lines. According to new data, almost 2000 working hours of staffers’ time at the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust – which will today be afflicted by strikes – was spent on “events and lectures”. Presumably all life-saving work on health and nutrition, you’d like to think…

      It turns out these trusts had better ideas. Of the fifteen events, four celebrated Black History Month, six focused on LGBTQIA Awareness sessions, and two were full-day conferences celebrating National Nurses Day and the Allied Health Professionals.

    He then lays it on thick about the non normalness of the situation:

    “Normally when we deal with a drowning victim, they are where they go down.
    “I would expect to find Nicola in the water right in front of the bench where she went down. She would not have moved, maybe two or three feet.”
    He added: “This is so strange.
    “In my 20-odd years of doing this, I have worked on hundreds of cases, I have never seen anything so unusual.”

    Well even as a non-expert, I seem to recall a few cases, where the body was eventually found miles downstream.

    In Morrisons yesterday I witnessed 3 (clearly Eastern European) young men loading up their baskets with meat, just meat – no pork. Nothing else. Now, its certainly not bar-b-que season, but Morrisons is next door to a hotel taken over by the boat people. So, I’m wondering if they have been given access to the hotel kitchen !

    Many pensioners and those on low income would love to have had a basketful of meat. Clearly we are paying the migrants too much.

    Yet another, lucid, objective hard nosed business perspective on –

    “Mark Mills: The energy transition delusion: inescapable mineral realities”.

    The ‘Net Zero / Renewables’ nonsense: It aint gonna work. Simple as that. Mark Mills conclusion? At best, renewables can work alongside fossil fuels but never replace them (in a month of Sundays).

    Most Governments must know this. So why are they lying to the people? The answer is, surely, that the control over the populations of the West, they are now beginning to exercise is more important than the lies over Global Warming and Net Zero.

    While Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon’s relationship was already at a low eb, the former First Minister’s broadside against his successor last night was extraordinary. Launching a ferocious attack over Scotland’s Self-ID laws, Salmond decried the move as “self-indulgent nonsense” that has undermined the nationalists’ independence campaign…

    “Thirty years of gradually building, building, building until we get independence over 50 per cent and then thrown away with some self-indulgent nonsense, which even if it was right, which it isnae, would hardly be tactically the most astute manoeuvre when we’re meant to be taking Scotland to its next date with destiny.”

    I commented yesterday on the strange fact that much of the UK reporting on the dreadful earthquake seemed to be coming from Syria with nowhere near as much info coming out of the much more badlly affected Turkey where the quakes actually took place.

    As it unfolds I begin to see the plan. Syria has millions of migrant refugees from all over the Middle East and Turkey has been preventing them access to the West. What I predict now is that the Globalists in the UN will grab the moment and use the footage to insist that these refugees are moved to Europe and especially the UK in their millions. Meanwhile we will never know the actual devastation in Syria.

    As for the many more poor Turkish victims? Tumbleweed…..

      ‘We don’t know what will happen, what will be the reaction of the white and Christian Europeans faced with this influx of starving and ignorant Africans,’ Col Gaddafi said…

      He told them that Islam should become the religion of Europe and gave them free copies of the Koran, after he had lectured them for an hour on the freedoms enjoyed by women in Libya.”

    It’s a black man shooting dead his white wife and their child. It’s not reported as that though. They barely mentioned the husband in their first reports. They didn’t mention guns.

    ‘Woman’s hour’ on Bbc R4 today made me feel really bad for being white. Apparently I am a supremacist, an oppressor and potentially a born killer. Gee, if only I could turn into an innocent, angelic being, filled with the milk of human kindness, by being some other race. Black, perhaps?
    Thank you, Danielle Deadwyler for reminding me of how guilty I am- by association- of the murder of Emmett Till. And apparently I have to thank Bbc’s Nuala Mc Govern for making it all possible. And to Whoopie (‘We need to see white people get beat up’) Goldberg, who comments on the role of Emmett’s mother in the film ‘Till’.
    This is NOT the first time that R4 have dragged up this 1955 murder and used it to make racial generalisations. On the contrary, they seem to have a wee obsession with it.
    It also seems there was an uproar cos you, Danielle, were not awarded an Oscar for your role in ‘Till’. Only a BAFTA nomination! Obviously, more racism. (RACIST movie awards, of course.)
    ‘You have to be extra careful with white people’, Mamie Till told her son down in Mississipi. And, of course, he isn’t. And Danielle says you should not treat this period in history as a ‘blip’. There you go. We lose knowledge about the role of black wimmin. ‘How about that?’
    Nualla says she was struck by those images, ‘WHICH ARE STILL THERE’. And Danielle has a son about the right age (Wow, she should be worried, shouldn’t she? Lotsa whites lurking in the bushes, you know, just waiting to pounce.)
    Oh yes, and the movie industry ‘upholds whiteness’, it seems. Upholds whiteness?
    I find all this a little ironic. I was walking home after movies in the seventies when -from nowhere- came a brick, which landed on my head. I was taken to hospital and stitched up.
    a man had been lurking in some bushes, waiting to pounce. I shan’t go into details about his race, in case I embarras both Danielle and Nualla. In the end it was only my best coat that got ruined by my bleeding all over it.
    Suffice it to say, I’m not thinking of making a movie…
    Whatever next, in the pantheon of crime…

    After a series of humiliating incidents including being forced to strip to ‘prove’ her gender, Cleopatra Kambugu fought back to become Uganda’s first trans person to receive official documents recognising her as female.

    Bre Orcasitas is a wildfire fighter in the US. She’s part of what are known as ‘hot shot crews’, nomadic teams of elite firefighters who travel from state to state tackling blazes in remote areas. Outlook’s Laura Thomas hears all about the role.

    Justo Gallego Martinez spent more than 50 years building a cathedral with his own hands using only recycled materials. The former monk, who died in 2021 at the age of 96, lived inside his creation which lies just east of the Spanish capital Madrid. Guy Hedgecoe went to meet him in 2015.

      Saw that first one on the bbc homepage. I have no problem with LGBT+, as long as they leave me out of it. I do, however, have a strong suspicion that there is a biblical injunction against same, though…
      What is puzzling -to me at least- is why there is this huge media-driven campaign to shove this LGBT stuff down everyone’s throats. I am white, male and ‘straight’. I could be wrong, but there appears to be a concerted effort to persuade me that I am part of an error-based minority.
      Why this huge effort? People like bbc journos are using my money to try and persuade me and people of similar inclination to change our points of view. Where did those lines about people persuaded against their will, being ‘of the same opinion still’ come from? I think they are true.
      My annoyance stems from the fact that, while I’m too old to be impressed by such campaigns, a lot of young people could be led astray. The incessant propaganda emanating from the likes of the bbc are also an abuse: of my money, in the form of the enforced licence fee. And an abuse of people who are in their formative years, and searching for truths to hold onto in a bewildering world.
      I don’t think anyone gave the bbc the right to campaign to fundamentally change society and lead youngsters astray. That is why I cannot stand by with indifference.

        Join the dots. EVERYTHING going on nudges us towards WEF objectives. Take LGBTQ+. They will not be breeding, hence depopulation. So immigration needed to pay taxes to pay pensions for an aging population and nationalism obviously reducing, a WEF objective. With a population with no ties to the country in which they live, no patriotism, no-one will fight for “their country”. A WEF objective. Miscegenation due to mixed races, a WEF objective. CBDC gives incredible opportunities for control to government. Trudeau illegally froze bank accounts of people who legally supported anti-government demonstrators. Think what a government who had complete control of your spending could do. A WEF objective. Join the dots.

    Chelsea is Chinese, was born in Aberdeen and has experienced racism and segregation due to her race.


    The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As one of China’s two special administrative regions (the other being Macau), Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
