    Lots of anger over a train derailment in Palestine Ohio and Biden & Buttigeig apparantly ignoring it.

    A simple train derailment wouldn’t be so bad but it’s carrying chemicals and contamination has occured.

    Hilarious, no on second thoughts tragic, head in the sand BBC.

    The BBC report Ford are laying off 1300 workers. They even have a HYS about it. Why?

    The BBC also report that the devolved Welsh Labour government have cancelled nearly all their road building programme ‘in order to protect the environment’. But strangely no HYS.

    Yet no ability whatever to join the dots.
    I might also add that the BBC continually report a lack of growth in the economy.

    Could there just possibly be a teeny weeny link between all these stories.

    Here’s a clue. Prioritise a politically correct woke absolutist environmental anti-car ideology above all else and watch car demand decline and economic growth go down the pan.
    How hard was that?


  3. Flotsam says:

    So Keir Starmer will reveal his tax returns when he becomes PM. Someone on GB News asks why not before the General Election? Pretty obvious I would say, he’s giving himself time to “tidy up” his financial affairs for the return he will let us see. He’s already run into the next return year so another year will be required for any “cleaning”. I’m not necessarily suggesting he’s evading but there might be sums he’s receiving from people or organisations he won’t want to reveal, maybe offshore stuff or avoidance measures. The return we’ll see will be saintly clean.

    Starmer’s a fake.

    Do the peeps managing the car parks get any say in anything clinical?

        Yeah – be fat – get referred for treatment . Drive to the hospital to be told you need to walk more.

        Surely putting up the cost of parking in hospital car parks is a good thing as it will deter people from going to hospital hence reducing waiting times in a and E (if not on strike) as well as shortening outpatient lists and freeing up room for ambulances and staff car parking ….

        At my local GP their little parking space . So the friendly moped enabled traffic wardens lurk with removal lorries to catch people going to the GP surgery … there is even a helpful warning notice in the waiting room .

    Excellent news – the labour created labour run ‘equalities commission ‘ have given the red Labour Party a thumbs up on the party no longer hating Jews .

    Yes – they’ve sold the Palestinian flags and are no longer friends with Muslim terrorists . They even don’t want comrade Corbyn in the party – not even as party leader …

    The leading champagne socialist comrade dame Maggie hodge ( Jewish ) even had a nice chat with comrade Robinson over it . All is well in red labour now – onwards to certain victory .

        Inflation dips, chicken dips…?

        Of course the rate may have dipped – but all previous inflation is now built in.


  20. AsISeeIt says:

    Funny how you always remember right at the end edition

    Mr AsI envisages the raison d’être to his daily edition to be (in part) the daily debunking of the BBC’s own in-house justification for their raison d’être – as a counter-weight rebalancing a supposedly right-wing press.

    Au contraire he says. The formerly patriotic Times is a case in point. That’s not cricket, you may say. Trending liberal of late, the Times has recently decided to go into the field of play to bat for the Labour leader: Back me or leave party, Starmer tells Labour’s left… Leader issues ultimatum to Corbynistas – music to Blairite ears and reassurance for Labour-curious voters yet to properly come out, so to speak.

    The Times may be Labour’s surprise twelthman but the Guardian is their top spinner: EHRC says case closed on Labour anti-Jewish racism

    And our BBC the fast attack: Equalities watchdog satisfied with Labour antisemitism reforms

    It’s not like our press to want to slam the door shut, to close a story, whether there’s new news or no… surely there’s always a new line – a little something they can find to go on?

    Nicola: Stained glove found… Cops searching for Nicola Bulley were handed a mystery “stained” glove… in a dramatic twist… (The Sun)

    True crime aficionados of the O.J. Simpson trial will recall the mantra: ‘If the glove don’t fit, you must acquit’

    Keep Britain tidy?

    It’s funny the things people just leave about: A Banksy artwork that appeared in Margate has been dismantled by the local council hours after the elusive artist claimed the piece as his… The piece – called “Valentine’s day mascara” by Banksy – had also incorporated a broken freezer and other items, which were all later removed… The freezer will return “once it has been made safe”, the council said. (BBC) – your Council Tax spent wisely?

    MSPs warn against ‘reckless’ start to deposit return scheme… The Deposit Return Scheme is designed to boost recycling via a 20p deposit on single-use drinks bottles and cans. (BBC) – I can envisage hordes of Rab C. Nesbitt-types scouring the streets of Scotland for discarded Irn-Bru cans

    From the formerly thunderer Times to the whimperer Telegraph

    The Torygraph makes a limp wet plea for forgiveness for conservatism today – having signed up to Christian holy ceremonies for same-sex couples and called the Church of England gay: The Church of England would barely survive without gay people – so why forbid them to marry? – our Allison Pearson now whimpers: Don’t call us far-Right – we are just talking common sense.

    The Telegraph frets that our British army is now a busted flush: Nato and France ‘concerned’ by UK military cuts – parse that report and you’ll realise the concern is that our forces are not playing a big enough role in the interests of some wider european strategy we’ve apparently signed up for.

    Read the small print in the Daily Express counter blast and you’ll see our own local border defence is a low priority: UK military ‘completely credible’ to lead Nato forces if Russia attacks ally – I thought they already had?

    Try this conundrum – we invaded Iraq for cheap oil – now we’re backing Ukraine against Russia so as make it more expensive?

    It Ain’t Half Hot Mum?

    Defence of our own home shores appears to be a very low priority: At the ready. Troops train for battle in British-Omani joint excercise (Daily Mirror) – there we go, mucking about in the desert again, after Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya all went so well.

    Closer to home, apparently, our forces are now part social service and part female sports club; with a few bad apples still to be weeded out: NHS strikes: Military train to drive ambulances at London barracks (BBC); Preet Chandi: Guinness confirms woman’s two polar world records… A British Army officer has had two world records she broke in the course of an Antarctic trek confirmed by Guinness. Preet Chandi, known as Polar Preet, has not only surpassed the world record for the longest polar ski expedition by a woman, but also the overall record. (BBC); British Army serviceman appears in court charged with terror offences… Mr Khalife, of Beacon Barracks in Stafford, was remanded in custody until his next court appearance (BBC)

    On a lighter note our press titles from across the political divide agree on a fashion trend (no, not what Mr AsI terms pantomime marriage, I mean actual clothes fashion)

    Left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper and left-curious Times are in accord: Farewell floral midi dresses… make way for no frills fashion (‘i‘); No florals! The new dress for spring (Times)

    The ‘Red Wall’ has sucked up too much attention, voters deserve better. Conservatives and Labour need to attend to the much-maligned urbanites, unhappy shire voters, and forgotten poor of the east and south, too (Yasmin Alibhai-Brown in the ‘i’) – doncha just have to admire the way she gives a nice big up to her very own metropolitan liberal/leftyites… and then just as an afterthought remembers to mention the ‘poor’ – you know, that lot in the food banks, cost of living crisis and all that.

    You may recall those TV ads for the chocolate bar Topic (a hazelnut in every bite) “Funny how you always remember right at the end”.


  21. Flotsam says:

    I’m watching the most peculiar speech from Starmer at this moment regarding the antisemitism commission report. He talked about the problem as if he was never part of the Labour Party at the time. He sat shoulder to shoulder with Corbyn. “Nothing to do with me guv” he might as well have said. It reminded me of the defences put forward at the Nurenburg trials

    Journalists at the news conference are skirting around his involvement as is Starmer himself who is using his lying lawyer techniques to their full

    Starmer is a fake.


    • theisland says:

      Starmer’s ‘skill’ for always being at least two or three steps away from any responsibility or blame is what has served him well in the past (hence all the fence-sitting).
      It is the typical behaviour of civil servant managerial types.
      Being ‘leader’ of the Labour party he now finds it harder to hide behind others.
      This has exposed his lack of principles and weak duplicitous nature – at least to all those who care to see.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Island – but he is a barrister – therefore born without principles ( see Blair ) . He is about the only advantage blue labour have got – but will become PM by default – one heartless technocrat replaced by another – the remedy to nut nut ….
        I’m hoping the expectation ‘baked in ‘( god I hate that ) to red labour does for them because voters realise they are never a miracle cure for the sheer dumbness of the other lot ….
        My big worry is a huge majority will fix the voting system into a one party state government – as in the US .


    • Peter Grimes says:

      “ Starmer is a fake.”

      Well, fich mich rigid!!!



    • Peter Grimes says:

      “ Starmer is a fake.”

      Der Starmbannfuehrer is a poodle-faker of the first order, he will twist and turn, confess and recant a repetition like a victim of the Inquisition.

      A few weeks back I watched (on GBNews, I watch no other nowadays), a Labour fellow-travelling goon insisting that since he had been anointed leader, Starmer had been ‘utterly ruthless’ in sorting out the anti-semitism in the party, and in other matters.

      To my mind Starmer has only been utterly ruthless in his abandoning everything he has stood on or supported for the last 7 years in the hope he can triumph.

      A nastier more weaselling, lying hypocrite would be difficult to imagine.

    • Zephir says:

      I seem to remember Boris was in charge here during Covid, with business grants and furlough etc and with Sturgeon desperately trying to steal his thunder at every opportunity as I recall…

      no mention of that when he went


  25. Zephir says:

    Sturgeon has only just realised NO ONE is interested in that trans crap (or 3% to be correct)

    Just like the rest of the UK and the world

    Lets hope the go woke go broke applies to elections as well as business


    • Thoughtful says:

      The Loonie Left reached the limit of which other loonie lefties will tolerate, but don’t be too quick to celebrate, because the Scottish Nazi Party is so full of hate for the English it is possible something even worse will emerge from the swamp, although Sturgeon has damaged the independence issue with her lunacy.


    • JohnC says:

      I think the 3% is the total gay people – the transexual variant are something like 0.15% or something.

      Of course at the BBC they are about 20%. because the BBC are heterophobic, misandrist and racist.


  26. Docmarooned says:

    Vile creature. She has wrecked Scotland with her insane ideas. Her performance in Covid was an absolute disgrace and the SNP worship every word that came out of the hateful hags mouth. The infrastructure is totally damaged, education is dire,health service failing. Everything she and the SNP touch turns to shit.


  27. MarkyMark says:

    Nicola Sturgeon has said that no matter how many times she’s asked over the coming weeks, she will not endorse any particular candidate to succeed her as First Minister.

    “I am not going to say who my preference will be to succeed me. What I do know is the SNP is awash with talented individuals”

    It seems SNP MPs disagree – one told The Scotsman that the talent pool is a “shallow well”…

    ‘Common sense’ to cut classroom doors to curb Covid
    3 February 2022



  28. Jeff says:

    So, another one bites the dust. Sturgeon has gone…and she won’t be missed…

    Her resignation speech is full of me, me ,me. At the same time that she’s bragging about her adherence to feminism…she’s brushing aside her lunacy in trying to put a male rapist in a woman’s prison. That’s the utter madness that really did for her.

    Scotland has the poorest health in the UK. Drink, drugs, an appalling NHS and the earliest death rate of any GB citizens. What a legacy.

    She imprisoned her people, mask wearing was ubiquitous, she closed schools, then had insane plans to remove the bottom of classroom doors in order to aid ventilation. I mean, WTF? Power clearly went to her highly lacquered head. She was a jumped up little dictator; a pocket sized Kim Jock-un.

    Of course, the questions have been pretty soft…as you’d expect from our awful media. Soon, one of them, probably The Guardian, will tell us that she was a woman of principle, who achieved great things and left on her own terms.

    B@ll@cks…We all know why she’s gone.

    She’s been kicked out…

  30. Fedup2 says:

    In all seriousness- i dont care about the future of the Union . If the different nations of the UK were to vote bigly on ‘ independence’ – real ‘ independence’ in every way – then so be it .

    But if the sex issue has bern so divisive in scotland – damaged the campaign for full independence- what does that say about the SNP and ‘ the cause ‘?

    Im slightly blinded by this as i have no interest in queer rights of any type. Chaps are chaps and girls are girls . If you dont fit this description- tough .

    So in fedup world none of this would ‘ be’ . Theyd be no politician squirming over definitions.

    Kids would not be sexualised younger and younger . . The state would not fund sex operations

    All simple – but not approved BBC think


    • digg says:

      Sturgeon and her Scottish Nazi Party cronies were interested only in power. Their efforts to hand the vote to anyone likely to prop them up in power has been the hallmark of their existence. They have attempted to portray themselves as magnanimous supporters of any group that would thereby become acolytes for them. Hence the vote for children, championing trans rights you name it. These people they tried to woo they expected to become lifelong SNP clones.

      It backfired…. There were never enough left wing 16 year olds or trannies to make much difference.

      They also gambled that in their view the Scots should by nature hate the English which would lead to a mass uprising for independence, another misconception and much of the reason behind their vile unwarranted nastiness towards the UK government.

      At one stage I used to think of Sturgeon as a would-be queen of Scotland but can now see she was really always much more like a Cromwell.

    “Thai cave rescue: Duangpetch Promthep, Wild Boars captain, dies in UK”

    “Duangpetch Promthep, one of the 12 boys who was rescued from a Thai cave in 2018, has died in the UK.

    The 17-year-old was found unconscious in his dorm in Leicestershire on Sunday and taken to hospital, where he died on Tuesday, the BBC has been told.

    He had been enrolled in a football academy in the UK since late last year.”

    Why would anyone bother joining the search, when they’re only getting half the story.


    • Zelazek says:

      Yes, a stupid mistake by the police. If they are not going to say what these “vulnerabilities” are, they really shouldn’t have mentioned them. This may fuel even more of the wild speculation that the police say they don’t want. Or, even worse, make the public lose interest in the case. After all, if the police aren’t going to be straight with us, then we won’t bother give any help to them.

If it had been Trump, Modi, Oban, Bolsonaro or Boris it would have been a triumphant hurrah that the divisive, controversial, polarising, dangerous, Far-Right, populist, racist, misogynist, transphobic nationalist has gone!
