Start the week 13 February 2023

Apparently there is dismay at the BBC about the appointment of the Chairman . The Chairman was , apparently , involved in financial dealings with Prime Minister Boris Johnson prior to appointment . There is no suggestion of corruption of course – and no rules were broken . But politicians make the rules …anything undermining the Far Left BBC is good for us eh?

    9pm Channel4 Guy Martin Asks how Are We Going to Keep The Lights on ?
    TV land is controlled by our WokeSupremacist and GreenSupremacist masters so Green hysteria is what I expect

    The show opens with guy blowing up Eggborough coal power station
    While the commentary goes on about the end of dirty coal
    (that is narrative rather than true, cos coal could theoretically be clean and low CO2)
    Then he talks about his home
    Loaded with kit like a 20KVA generator , Air Source heat pump
    Talk about £176/year to boil a kettle 10 times/day
    Yeh we don’t boil it that many times probably 3
    (And I think he means a full full kettle each time)

    Then at Drax
    They just used a speeded up clip of a coal power station
    That makes the smoke look blacker


    • StewGreen says:

      Guy “This just shows that we can’t rely on solar and wind”
      He means the way you can turn Drax up when you want
      but wind and solar are not only uncontrollable they drop off at random moments .

      Now on to Drax Carbon Capture Storage scheme CCS
      They haven’t mentioned that no one in the world has made this economic so far

      Drax spends mega on PR
      but this prog isn’t a full advert of them


      • StewGreen says:

        Guy is now talking about powering his van HVO (H Veg Oil) instead of diesel
        costs 40p per litre more, it creates “90% less CO2”,
        … Em That’s not true.. it emits the same
        .. but you discount 90% claiming the growth of veg oil on the farm sucks CO2 OUT of the air

        Bit about repairing the grid cables

        Part 4 actual part where he blows up Eggborough


        • StewGreen says:

          Irony when Eggborough Power station was blown up on 1 August 2021
          that set the scene for high UK gas prices
          Crazy political stunts like UKgove and Surgeon blowing up COAL power stations drive high gas prices
          World gas sellers kept higher prices
          cos they knew UK had less options

          Previously gas sellers knew we’d use coal if they didn’t give a lower gas price.

          Next episode about Solar/Wind is already up


        • tomo says:

          Guy Martin is tellystruck …

          He has wasted any credibility he might have had at some stage by his obvious credulity and inability to do joined up thinking – people who drive fast … I mean look at Lewis Hamilton…

          I’m sure TV producers find him quite compliant key talent.

          What was wrong with having a test card when there wasn’t anything of import to report and the well of entertainment talent had run a bit dry?

          The impending energy crunch must be obvious to even the dimbos at the BBC – so as usual, they are CYA-ing …


      • MarkyMark says:

        Across Central Europe, companies are clear-cutting forests and grinding up centuries-old trees in the name of renewable energy. Pellets are shipped across Western Europe, helping countries reach their renewable-power commitments. None of this is illegal — in fact, it’s encouraged by green-energy subsidies.7 Sept 2022


    • Sluff says:

      You’ve just reminded me of the largely forgotten and (surprise surprise) rarely mentioned EU Large Combustion Plants Directive.

      Which required coal power stations to massively reduce their emissions of things like Sulphur Dioxide and thus put a huge extra production cost on power stations. Many resolved not to continue and the closures of the 2010s bear witness.

      The result was the over-reliance on gas.
      And here we are in 2023 and global gas prices are where they are, and domestic energy prices are where they are.

      Another triumph for the EU. One strangely absent from the relentless ‘eat or heat cost of living crisis’ BBC coverage.

    I’m happy that you get to go first at the top of a new Thread, Stew. You deserve it! Ah, I see you’ve deleted your post. I was not asleep, I was busy making a coffee and then researching another post:

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – another clear case of BBC bias?

    A clear case of BBC misandry at work, I think. Especially when you check the final link I post above. You find that it may have been an event limited to women. Certainly any male competitors from the UK are not mentioned.

    Then the second link is quite untrue. There is no gender barrier in motorsport and even F1. Never has been.

    I have spectated when Lella Lombardi, Davina Galicia and Desire Wilson raced in F1. Across the Atlantic in Indy Car racing Janet Guthrie achieved a ninth place finish at the Indy 500 Memorial Day race in 1978. Danica Patrick has done even better than Guthrie at the MD race. Women have won races in NASCAR racing and I have a notion the same applies to CART Racing, ie. racing at circuits other than Indianapolis on MD.

    There is, of course, a gender barrier in boxing. I wonder why?

    The BBC is biased.

      Off-topic alert for everyone else, with my apologies.

      Re. the observations about female racers. It’s worth doing a bit of digging about a driver of whom you may never have heard, and who was genuinely brilliant – Lorraine Peck. She was a 16-year-old kart racer who was killed in 1975, the year after finishing 2nd in the Junior World Karting Cup. She seemed clearly destined for much greater things (her father had already bought her a Chevron for moving into Formula Atlantic) , and when I was in that world in the mid-70s, she was simply a star. No “..for a girl” riders. Just outstanding by any measure. And is still talked about today.

      For example:-

      Worth looking at the list of names in the Overall Results sheet pictured on that FB page. For those who know about that world, there are some big names in there.

    Guy Martin taking a look at the UK electricity sector.

    There are a lot of people who will be furious at his common sense conclusions.

    Basically fossil fuel is the only realistic way to sustain our current energy useage and therefore almost every aspect of our lives.

    Stop fossil fuel as he puts it and you will have to throw away your kettle, your electric car, your home heating system and it goes on.

    No doubt Guy will now be in the cross hairs of the green nutter maniacs so expect him to be cancelled any time soon.


  5. Fedup2 says:

    I dont watch GBNews any more but i wanted to see whether Neil Oliver wouid say anything about the silencing and firing of Mark Steyn .,


    So i looked at the youtube comments – and after going through a few hundred comments – i saw just one passing comment .

    Sold out – like the rest of that failing station .


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fed, re your Thread Header: Bojo gets in trouble for ‘Partygate’, Civil Servants involved. Richard Sharp and Bojo get in trouble over ‘Loangate’, a Civil Servant is involved. Dominic Raab is accused of bullying, three Civil Servants are involved.

      A mere coincidence, the Civil Service involvement in all three cases?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Up2 – as the civil service is the enemy of the blue labour lot maybe blue labour politician be a bit more careful about being corrupt – using influence to trouser cash – and the like . I hope red labour hold an inquiry into PPE profiting by bent tories ….

        Dirty is dirty …. ( see bbc chairman )


        • Up2snuff says:

          Hang on, Fed; who drove ‘the-PPE-crisis’ at the start of the UK Lockdown 1? It wouldn’t have been the media, especially the BBC, and Civil Servants not doing their jobs properly would it? It is not up to Government Ministers in the ordinary run of things to deal with day-to-day ordering of supplies for the NHS, is it?


          • digg says:

            It’s become pretty clear that the civil service are on a mission to help create a socialist utopia by using every trick they can to smear the conservatives.

            They are also working as supplier of unfounded fairy tales to the left media and in particular the BBC.

            When other countries back in history reached a point where the publicly appointed class decided that they were no longer employees but political activists it usually ended up in violence.

            In fact this process was honed to perfection by Hitler causing the creation of the Nazi party and the dismantling of all opposition and all the hell that followed. Like these people, he had little regard for the ballot box, preferring to undermine and dismantle any opposition to his extreme views.

            In my view, the passing of ANY information to third parties, including the press without official permission by any employee in the public sector, and especially within critical roles in the civil service should be a sacking if not criminal offence regardless of who it may be designed to damage.

            … why do you think the UK Gov was fastest off the mark when Covid hit us? The 2016 pandemic emergency planning showed that, as the Americans do, you need to have all your extortion plans ready before anyone notices. Never mind the need for the right equipment. Brilliant PR for HMG at the time; only we didn’t spot that the ringers had already ordered their yachts…

    Teenagers arrested after girl stabbed to death in park

    V sad event. Why do the police and Al Beeb have to mention

    “At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that the circumstances surrounding Brianna’s death are hate related,”

    Sky have not included that quote in their report. I would think stabbing a teenage girl to death involves a good deal of hate.


    • StewGreen says:

      Loobtloo that’s the normal lefty rewrting of language
      People get hatey and stab others all the time
      but limbob only count it as hate if it is a straight white person assaulting a SpecialVictimhood group

      In the case apparently the 16 yo Ghey is counted as a trans woman

      “Detectives have arrested two teenagers following the death of 16-year-old Brianna Ghey in Warrington.
      A 15y/o boy and a 15y/o girl, both from the local area, have been arrested on suspicion of murder. They are currently in custody assisting police with their investigation.


      • StewGreen says:

        There appears to be 35K follower Tik Tok channel
        A 16 year old male born person dressing as a pouting school girl dressed in very short skirts, showing her stocking tops
        That is a bit weird of course.


    • taffman says:

      “At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that the circumstances surrounding Brianna’s death are hate related,”

      But ……………..
      “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”


    • Loobyloo says:

      I understand now. They released that statement before it was revealed?/allowed to be said that this was a male pretending to be a female. Call me old fashioned but we have gone collectively mad, where someone is referred to as the opposite sex just because they have ‘lived as’ that sex for a few months. They could get around this by not giving a sex at all, just a name and age – because if the sex isn’t going to match what most of people assume it means, why state it? Unless political motive etc, which in this case would be abhorrent.


  7. StewGreen says:

    Channel4 doco is saying Russians tried to gain leverage over UK politicians by inviting them to strips clubs
    Most didn’t go

    I reckon UK would try similar tricks

    No Chris Bryant is saying he is a victim cos he was in the liase with Russia group
    but the Tories mocked him by printing the underpants clip
    I don’t really understand hat he means
    He created the underpants photo didn’t he ?


  8. StewGreen says:

    Channel4 asked Brendan Kavanagh the super popular street piano player to move out of the way
    so they could film their TVprog
    now the trailers are airing so I am trying to unpick it all
    Seems this C4 show is BakeOff with pianos
    and being TV they’ve wokified it
    “Claudia Winkleman, musician Mika and renowned pianist Lang Lang.”
    OK a celeb and a BAME pianist
    No idea who Mika is ..oh a Eurovision host
    Mika, is a singer-songwriter born in Beirut, Lebanon, and raised in Paris and London. predicted breakthrough act of 2007

    The show features
    ☑ London black people
    eg …

    ☑ Autistic Welsh woman

    ☑ drag tribute act. Drag queen

    Remember, anyone pointing out the glaringly obvious link between sex crimes and “asylum seekers”, AKA benefit thieves must be “far right”

    This is the real reason why the women cover themselves up, the males are unable control themselves in a civilised society.

    “Four teenage asylum seekers arrested in connection with alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl at a school in Kent

    One of the boys allegedly raped the girl while the other three acted as ‘lookouts’
    All four boys are believed to be pupils at the same school of the victim”

    What we (on here anyway) all knew, where the blame really lies RE recent earthquake: corruption / dishonesty.

      A SURGE in illegal housing practices in Luton has sparked a government grant to tackle irresponsible landlords who exploit tenants.

      This month Mohammed Saeed Ahmed of 125 Carlton Crescent, Luton and Mansoor Kiani of 5 Carlton Crescent, Luton both pleaded guilty to one offence of failing to have an HMO (Houses of Multiple Occupation) licence.

    • StewGreen says:

      The idea is coming up The Tories have failed to implement policies that will distance us from the EU
      eg on migrants on Green Agenda, on leaving the non-EU European Court etc.
      Why’s that ? cos they are preparing the ground for rejoining

      AS if Boris was a fake Brexiteer, brought in to implement SOFT-Brexit.
      Though he did implement it in name he didn’t proper Brexit policies.

      A FEW days ago, you took the commentator Darren Grimes to task for what you called ‘misinformation’ on the electricity system, and you speculated that he might be paid to disseminate falsehoods in the media.

      It’s probably best to draw a veil over the more conspiratorial aspects of your thinking. However, some of the other things you said suggest that your own understanding of the facts of the energy system is a little shaky. This article is intended to put you right. I hope you find it useful.

      Let’s start with the good news. You say that energy bills have gone up ‘because they are determined by the most expensive of the various sources that generate the electricity’. This is true. However, you go on to draw some entirely unfounded conclusions when you say that ‘if we had already decarbonised our energy generation, your bills would be lower’.

      Your mental model of the electricity system seems to be based on two underlying assumptions.

      · It’s cheaper to get electricity from renewables than from gas-fired power stations.

      · We can completely decarbonise our electricity system so that (low-priced – or so you assume) renewables become the most expensive generator on the system.


    • MarkyMark says:

      “You seem to hold out hope that scientists will come up with a way to solve this conundrum. To that I would observe that going ahead with any project, but particularly one as vast as Net Zero, while simply hoping that any technical hurdles will be solved along the way, is an extraordinary gamble – as one wag put it, ‘it’s like jumping out of an aeroplane and hoping someone invents the parachute before you hit the ground’. Moreover, as I have pointed out, storage only adds cost. So even the best imaginable battery technology wouldn’t take us below the cost of offshore wind, which appears to be stuck at around £125 per megawatt hour at present. That means a poverty-stricken future for our children.”

      The original was last seen at a warehouse in Woolwich in 2015 and was thought to have been destroyed.

      But people at the restaurant spotted a remarkably similar tablet – also with six promises on it.

    TOADY Watch #1 – but it isn’t true, is it, BBC?

    1. The weather is mild (via Met Office)
    2. Unemployment is at a record low

    Neither claim is true but we hear them regularly repeated on BBC R4, the former for the last week, the latter in the first half hour of TOADY this morning. If we had record low unemployment, unemployment would be below 350,000 as it was in the 1960s. According to my sums it is still at around 1.3million but cannot be certain because the ONS and the BBC misleading report the figure as a percentage.

    You would think that journalistic curiosity at the BBC would make the BBC send a journalist to the Office for National Statistics to find out the size of the UK workforce. I think we can safely say unemployment is still at least three times the record 1960s low figure.

    Three-sider battle royale edition

    There’s also something of a home and away theme to today’s news stories.

    Here, very much on home territory, the Mirror frets over our very own: NHS Heroes’ Long Covid agony… as they fight for fair pay – a few isolated cases, surely?

    Up to 10,000 workers face losing their jobs as callous Tories cut support… Nurse Brenda Eadie, 45, has already lost her job due to Long Covid – but if she is too sick to work, then… we should keep her on the NHS payroll? Even if she’s now all but on life support – as the Mirror frontpage pic suggests.

    I suppose it is now our patriotic duty to endlessly support certain left-leaning national institutions, fail as they might.

    Call the Midwife renewed for two more series, BBC confirms (BBC)

    The Mirror today talks to nurses with horrendous symptoms who say they caught the virus at work – but surely to goodness during that former pandemic of ours, within the NHS of all places, they were suitably masked up and properly injected with the wonder vax to the absolute max?

    Oh well, I suppose we have to take the Mirror’s word for it that the covid ain’t over yet.

    Here’s a thing, novel sicknesses and pandemics tend to follow periods of warfare – The first recorded outbreak of syphilis in Europe occurred in 1494/1495 in Naples, Italy, during a French invasion. Because it was spread by returning French troops, the disease was known as “French disease” (Thank you Wiki) and of course there’s the Spanish Flu that ravaged Europe in 1919 following the Great War of 1914-18

    However, the novel largely media-carried pandemic of our recent times actually came to an end with the outbreak of a war in Ukraine – funny that.

    We said this was a day of home and away stories. As our NHS limps on regardless on costly seemingly perpetual life support – a sort of role reversal – we the UK patients must save the life of our NHS – with generous emergency injections of our life-saving taxes: Hero medics saving lives of quake victims (Daily Express) – nice to know the medical profession is doing some good for someone somewhere.

    Closer to home… and away matches… The Telegraph covers the Six Nations on its cover: England can do better, says Borthwick – tell me about it, as they say.

    The BBC – sort of – covered the three nations tussel that went on up there on Merseyside (Liverpudlians v Police v Migrants) yesterday with a very roundabout report headlined: Asylum protests: Teen charged over Knowsley disorder – if you read that one (past tense) on the BBC online news homepage in the blink of an eye before it went missing and could glean any notion of the course of events then you’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din.

    A 3-minute clip on You Tube from GB News aired the phone clip that sparked the aggro and explained the story rather better than our national broadcaster – the BBC report on this three-sider match up, battle royale, all-in tag, narrative wrestling grudge match was constructed to read more arse-about-face than a trade mark Jeremy Bowen Israeli retaliation to Palestinian provocation tale.

    Foreign Office Minister Andrew Mitchell has condemned the violence and said the government was seeking to limit the “excessive use” of asylum hotels. (BBC) – Leo Kearse (one of the UK’s few openly right wing comedians) on the GB News review cut to the chase for us and suggested the government welcomes them right next door to those Guardian readers who say they what them in this country.

    Four held over rape… Four Afghan boys who arrived in Britain in small boats last year have been arrested in connection with the rape of a 15-year-old girl in Dover (Times) – allegedly – meaning allegedly their age is under 18

    The Tories have allowed the building of multiple powder kegs across the country.

    Shotgun wedding?

    Who are these Tories? They’re no conservatives, that’s for sure: Welby: MPs threatened me over gay marriage… sounds dodgy “… I was summoned twice to Parliament, and threatened with parliamentary action to force same-sex marriage on us, called in England equal marriage” (Telegraph) – Mr AsI calls it a pantomine.

    Equal rights, not sacred rights.

    9am R4 The Advertise Your Book Show
    The theme is food
    BBC has thing about making sure guest experts are female.
    So in this prog all 3 guests are female

    Then it’s followed by the Advertise Your Book For a Week Show
    .. today about a woman raped in front of her 2 year old child by a housebreaker.*

    Then Woman’s Hour.
    .. one of its topics is plugging a BBC podcast
    ..My God they are so often insular

    * Are 9:45am rape stories the thing for listening to with the kids ? .. It’s half term

    ** The food show starts by saying “Britons don’t eat many broad beans we export most”
    Really ? we grow and eat them.
    Now they are talking about food miles Carbon footprint
    “*We* have to head for net zero”
    … Do we ? that’s libmob’s world not mine


    • StewGreen says:

      The 11am show is all about talking to Iranian women about the issues and protests there.
      The presenter is male.

      The 11:30 Evan Davis show is about podcasts and has more males than females

      3 podcasts are discussed/promoted
      One is “The Rest is Politics with Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart”

      … yep BBC libmob promoting their mates again

    Not quite as brazen in the UK………….Yet.

    “France: 49-year-old Muslim migrant with 11 convictions attempts to rape 13-year-old girl in the middle of the street”

    Our Government is looking forward to the first of many such incidents. Perhaps another party at No.10 to celebrate?

    Needless to say, ‘Coming to a Town or City near you….’ – inevitably. Be enriched.

    #PsyOP was trending this morning

    A guy “sent an abusive message to England manager”
    “it was not thought that Southgate received the message, as it was picked up by his personal assistant and sent to FA security, who contacted the police.”

    Guess what happened to Brian Martin a York court ?
    Nov 21, 2022
    Judge “It is my public duty to send a strong message that this sort of behaviour will not be tolerated.”
    Yorkshire Post after sentencingc
    Brian Martin sent an expletive-laden email to Southgate on 4 June after England lost 1-0 to Hungary.
    “narrowly avoided being sent to prison.”
    ..judge imposed a two-year community order which included a £120 fine and 200 hours of unpaid work.
    .. Martin was also ordered to pay £620 costs and a £95 surcharge.

    Surely one can criticise a manager for favouring white players or favouring black players
    The newspaper doesn’t quote any phrase singled out as “racist”
    and even if it did it would be OPINION that a media team handling his letters would be able to cope with.
    I’m guessing that his letter could have contained direct racism against the 2 black players calling one a monkey or something
    but I can’t tell from the newspaper report.
    nor the BBC
    The journos chose not to quote the racist phrases
    Surely if they were cast iron bad, they ould have been quoted


    • StewGreen says:

      The CPS chose to do two promo tweets naming him
      Is that normal ?

      The first one as an entire thread


    • StewGreen says:

      The guy wrote a reply underneath the BBC tweet
      (Twitter hides it past the Show More Replies gate)

      Also a non BBC Radio presenter replied
      “I had a death threat via phone call yesterday and the police did nowt”

      Twitter is cheating by excluding from searches Tweets from him that mention the word Southgate

        “The BBC have Libelled me and I am in the process of issuing proceedings.

        • StewGreen says:

          He won’t cos libel laws are too expensive for normal people to use
          It’s similar to the case of the Leicester guy
          He’s a bit crazy (now sectioned) he went down to protest against the BBC who were WORKING in a public street, (illegally in my opinion since everyone else was obeying Covid laws)
          And the BBC upgraded the charges to racism on him quoting when he shouted at the entire team “Go Back to where you came from” and they knew it wasn’t racist
          They then never held to that or showed up in court
          I think he was later sectioned for something else

          The BBC should have had security, who could have told him continuous shouting isn’t protest it is something that stops them going about their everyday job.

        This is soviet style justice. It’s a disgrace. No representative, no right to call witnesses, no right to present evidence. FFS, British justice used to be the envy of the world. Not any more…

        Is there anybody that doesn’t despise Gareth “Woke” Southgate? The geezer gives me the bleedin’ shivers.

        Fulham did quite well at the weekend, so I took a deep breath and watched Match of the Day. I try to avoid Lineker if I possibly can, however…

        These poxy multimillionaire footballers are still doing the bloody kneeling. Some sanctimonious BBC drone, explained to us proles the desperate need to “Stamp out racism.”

        What about taking the knee to stamp out Pakistani paedo’ gangs?

        Nah, bit tricky that one, not interested…


    • theisland says:

      This appears to quote the email to Southgate (or some of it).

      It includes ““Not only did you cause England to lose the European Championship final against Italy by playing for a draw from a winning position, and picking penalty takers who were black instead of being competent, you f****** clown, but you still appear blissfully unaware that 99 per cent of English citizens hate Team Snowflake taking the knee.”

        BBC in discrimination row after opening trainee role only to ethnic minorities

        The BBC is under fire for only allowing people from ethnic minorities to apply for a trainee position working on shows including Springwatch.

        The broadcaster is advertising a one-year, £17,810 trainee production management assistant role with the position “only open to black, Asian and ethnically diverse candidates”.


      • StewGreen says:

        @TheIsland the YorkShire Post article I mentioned also quoted that
        but it is not actually racist
        The articles imply that something racist was directly said about a player
        Giving an opinion, that a manager chose a player cos of his white or black skin , isn’t racist

    Emily Thornberry was the Shadow Minister responsible for creating this dossier, asking 350+ written questions to force the information from the government. At around £150 per written question in time and administrative costs, she spent £52,500 asking about government waste. One of her questions was about a hotel stay by Rishi and his Treasury team in Venice – information already publicly available thanks to a 2022 Guido article. Wasting taxpayer cash to ask a question about wasting taxpayer cash…

    • MarkyMark says:

      Danegeld (/ˈdeɪnɡɛld/;[1] “Danish tax”, literally “Dane yield” or tribute) was a tax raised to pay tribute or protection money to the Viking raiders to save a land from being ravaged. It was called the geld or gafol in eleventh-century sources. It was characteristic of royal policy in both England and Francia during the ninth through eleventh centuries, collected both as tributary, to buy off the attackers, and as stipendiary, to pay the defensive forces. The term danegeld did not appear until the late eleventh century. In Anglo-Saxon England tribute payments to the Danes was known as gafol and the levy raised to support the standing army, for the defense of the realm, was known as heregeld (army-tax).

      Manchester students deface poem by ‘racist’ Kipling
      Students have defaced a mural featuring Rudyard Kipling’s If in a stand against his “racist” work.

      The author’s 1895 poem was painted on a wall of Manchester University’s newly renovated union building.

      But student leaders erased the work, replacing it with a piece by Maya Angelou in a bid to reverse “black and brown voices” being written out of history.

      The union has apologised for failing to consult students on its choice of poem.

    Bit of a hullabaloo on BBC regarding possible Chinese balloons flying over the UK.

    Now why would they bother doing that, after all they could just load a boat full of spies onto a rubber boat in Calais?

    Plus it turns out that the US has form and has been flying US balloons over China for quite a while.

    As usual, the real story is skewed to fit the agenda.


  47. Thoughtful says:

    A SENIOR Tory business leader and Liz Truss ally has quit the party after almost four decades citing the party’s alleged “f*** business” attitude and approach to transgender issues.

    Iain Anderson, who is also pals with Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove, said that after 39 years he would be leaving the party saying “it’s not the party it used to be – I can’t defend it”.

    The founder of the Cicero public relations firm – who has said he will be switching to Labour – opposed the UK Government’s blocking of gender reform legislation passed in the Scottish Parliament before Christmas.

    Basically another hard leftist can’t get his own way on absolutely everything so throws his toys out of the pram, and leaves for a slightly less left wing party

    So. A 15 year old schoolgirl is reported to have been raped in Dover by four afghans who had been placed in her school . One doing the raping the others holding her down. I can’t think of anything more disgusting and awful but also something that is very important for everyone, particularly those with children to know about.

    It is at the time of writing one in the afternoon. The news has been out there all morning. So what do we find on the BBC news for Kent website ?

    Headline is : “Meteroid lights up skin over English channel ”

    Followed by ;

    woman dies in car crash
    Pawnbroker sees 50% increase in business
    Call the midwife renewed for two series’s
    Childcare costs pricing me out
    New academy trust to take over school

    No mention at all on the BBC kent news website of by far the most important local story.

    What’s more they only really have two items of actual local news ( car crash and school ) the rest being the usual left biased stories ( pawnbroker and childcare costs ) let alone making out a meteorite was the most important local news.

    They should be reported to Ofcom for hiding the most important item of news and hence trying to change the truth of the narrative.
