    BBC local newsPR Sunday

    The tone was “Saaad, we were so looking forward to it all kicking off in Skegness, an shouting Far Right, Far Right … but then it all pased off peacefully”
    The first person they chose to air
    was a bloke saying “I don’t see that the asylum hotels are a problem”
    Then they switched to people alongside the march
    finishing with an old couple
    “We are from Boston, it’s absolutely overrun we are now a minority in our town !”

    Presenter quickly switched to the next item
    “Refugees in Hull says Hull feels like home”
    .. is that true news, cos that sounds like a refugee PR org talking FOR the refugees
    This time it’s about Ukrainians
    It’s a bit funny cos we’ve just had 4 days on the 1st anniversary of the invasion
    Item cos to a Ukr woman here for 20 years and her restaurant now full of Ukrainians.
    3 Ukrainian women describing fleeing explosions
    .. the piece has been PR honed cos the background shows stock footage of the war.
    “There are a lot of Ukrainians here so it feels like being at home

    Item about “comedian” Rosie Jones she got criticism on Twitter when she did live shows
    Well, she has severe cerebral palsy and you can’t understand a word she says
    She may well be a great thinker/writer but listening to her speak is excruciating. The same people who shout “white men can’t dance” would call that appalling prejudice.
    All that was 2 years ago
    This item is just PR for her tour starting next week.

    Meanwhile the transformer for the Denmark interconnector has been blocking local roads for a day.

    The weather boy seems to be very camped up, he’s died his skin orange too.

    Anyone noticed that Steve Allen has been pushed out of LBC?

    He’d been there for over forty years, and had huge suport every time the listening figures came out, but – whoooooosh – he’s been axed!

    I know the BBC rely on mediocrity and wokrity, but he was none of that, he just said what was the first thing in his mind, and won over millions of listeners!

    I could listen to his banter for hours – he often read out the odd email I sent him around 5.00 am with a chuckle and his show was the perfect start to evey week-day!

    Come back somewhere else please Steve, we really need someone like you who despises useless slebs, pokes fun at trashy nobodies, and keeps politics in their crappy box where they belong…

    Autistic boy accidentally skuffs a copy of the Koran, leading to a Sharia style court. There is a police officer in the line up, representing the community.
    But take a look at the boy’s mother, humiliated and obliged to wear a head scarf.


    • Doublethinker says:

      A poster I read last week was wondering if the sensitivity readers who are busily filleting rude or cry making words out of zRoal Dahl’s books would like a look at the Koran. No thought not.


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      The possession and use of a koran obviously needs to be treated the same as the possession of a Bible in Saudi.

      If having such a thing in a public place is going to cause such an uproar then clearly they should be prohibited.


    • MarkyMark says:

      Less well known [than other paradoxes] is the paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

    New ruling from the European Court

    …. They have ruled that housing asylum seekers in Skegness
    … is cruel
    … to the asylum seekers.

      I agree. Islington would be much more suitable.


      • Scroblene says:

        Plenty of little islands off Sheppey too!

        Just a short bus ride from Dover, boil up a curry or whatever we have to spare, chuck up a few tents and bob’s your auntie!

        Skeggy is a lovely place – far too good for illegals!


      • atlas_shrugged says:

        Housing them anywhere in the UK would be so cruel. We are so waycist after all.

        France would be a much better option. Or even Sweden.

    BBC to make Shamima Begum Christmas Special “most diverse production yet”.

    It is being rumoured that the BBC is planning to make a three hour long Shamima Begum ‘Special’ as the highlight of their Christmas programming this year. Although the introduction to the story of her life will be voiced by the heroine herself, she will be played by up to a dozen different actors and actresses during the movie. These will be a mixture of Black, Asian, male, female, trans, gay, lesbian, body proud and alternatively-abled actors, reflecting the truly diverse nature of multi-cultural Britain. However, no White actors will be used as this would be divisive, hateful and could act as a rallying call for the Far Right ™. When questioned, a BBC source defended the decision not to be portray her as a young woman of Bangladeshi heritage, which is what she is, saying: “Most Britons, of whatever background, even if they are not BBC managers or human rights lawyers, identify with her story and her struggle for justice. Climate change is an issue that affects all of us… hang on, that’s Greta’s stuff but you know what I mean, the story of a brave young girl etc, doesn’t really matter what it is as long as it fits the narrative and we can use it.”


    • G.W.F. says:

      Is there any evidence in support of the rumour that Begum’s trial in Syria is imminent?


  6. Flotsam says:

    Labour’s fake leader, the old fraud Starmer says he will support whatever agreement that’s reached, literally anything. One might wonder at his damascene conversion to Brexit and supporting the enemy (the Tories). However there is purpose in the slippery toad’s pronouncement.

    1) The PM will have no excuse for not coming up with an agreement, he has to he can’t walk away, it puts him under pressure
    2) it will allow or encourage Sunak to agree to a dilution of Brexit which he wouldn’t otherwise get past Parliament due to ERG/dissidents.

    3) Whatever the terms of the agreement, Smarmer will be able to get credit for saving Britain.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Was funny watching starmer say there would be no sniping and then promptly sniped about the absent Johnson – which was inevitable .
      As for Johnson – the agreement is – apparently – quite complicated so I reckon someone will be trying to explain it to him ……
      Maybe he ll do his standup routine at PMQs ….


  7. LynetteO says:

  8. Terminal Moraine says:

    On the Scott Adams story, the BBC says:

    “Respondents were asked to agree or disagree with the phrase: ‘It’s OK to be white.’ The phrase is believed to have emerged in 2017 as a trolling campaign and has since been used by white supremacists…”

    In BBC land no affirmative statement for white people — no matter how pedestrian — can be judged on its own merit. It must be tarnished by association while they churn out thousands of column inches and hours of airtime pretending to want racial equity. Another question from the survey that isn’t getting coverage because it’s too uncomfortable: “Black people can be racist, too” (responses from black Americans only):

    76% agree
    27% disagree
    8% not sure

    The media are showing that their social engineering and extreme bias is worsening social relations in so many areas. They don’t realise how much simmering unrest they foment, because they’re so stupid, or ideologically driven, or in most cases, both.



  9. Fedup2 says:

    BBC News
    The Far Left Republican BBC could nt wait to cut away from the Commons responses to the EU deal – a generally positive response hence the BBC cutting off to go to another ISIS terrorist propaganda piece or similar …..

    I would t normally watch the rabble but this is important – too much blood has been shed over NI and it can never resume …

    Rishi Sunak hails new NI Brexit deal but concerns remain

    First thing I notice immediately about this Brexit article is that it has no HYS. Unlike ALL the others except one (where Lammy made a bit of a tw@t of himself).

    Then I noticed it has a ‘but’ in the middle of the main headline – which morphs from a general ‘concerns’ by anyone and everyone to just ‘DUP concerns’ in the actual article.

    So I gave it the ‘BBC don’t like it test’ and searched it for their typical ‘but …’ technique which they use to immediately counter things they don’t like but have to report. It has 15 !!.

    Where is the outrage now? ‘Virtue-signalling’ celebrities who opposed plans to deport Jamaican criminal – who went on to murder man in brutal knife fight – remain silent as outraged MPs tell luvvies to ‘think again’


    A slew of celebrities who protested against the deportation of a Jamaican criminal have kept silent after it was revealed he went on to commit murder in the UK.

    Ernesto Elliott was due to be aboard a Home Office charter flight in December 2020, but dodged efforts to remove him thanks to last-minute human rights appeals backed by Labour MPs and a host of celebrities.

    But in June 2021 – six months after he was supposed to have been removed from Britain – Elliott murdered a 35-year-old man in a horrific knife fight.

    Elliott was last month jailed for at least 26 years for murder.

    Supermodel Naomi Campbell, Line of Duty actress Thandiwe Newton and soul singer Beverley Knight each spoke out against Elliott’s deportation among other criminals.

    But tonight they made no comment about Elliott’s subsequent conviction for murder. Historian David Olusoga also did not respond to our questions.
    Labour MP Clive Lewis, who coordinated a letter against the removal flight in 2020, made no
    comment yesterday.
    The letter was signed by fellow Labour politicians.

    Former Home Secretary Priti Patel led the criticism of his blocked deportation today, backed by current Home Secretary Suella Braverman and Tory MP Chris Philp, Minister for State of Crime.

    Speaking today at a Policy Exchange event, Patel said: ‘I was heavily involved in that as home secretary at the time, and I’m afraid, as ever, we came up against various specialist immigration lawyers, Labour MPs but also celebrities who for some reason thought that they should stop a deportation flight of foreign national offenders going back to Jamaica, and that was completely wrong.

    ‘So I’m afraid it is absolutely appalling that individual who should have been on the plane basically was taken off the flight and went on to commit murder.’

    Braverman tweeted: ‘This murderer should have been deported on a flight out of this country in 2020 but the courts blocked his removal after dozens of Labour MPs cried out it was an injustice. So much for their pledge to keep Britain’s streets safe.’

    And Philp added: ‘As Immigration Minister in Dec 2020 I tried to deport this dangerous criminal. But Labour MPs and various celebrities (including Naomi Campbell, Thandiwe Newton, Naomie Harris and David Olusoga) opposed the flight and most criminals were taken off the flight following legal challenges.

    Now, just remember, this is the bloody bbc who bang on and on about more taxpayers money being spent, on just about everything especially more public sector wages and the NHS,

    remember that:

    “EXCLUSIVE: BBC star Gabby Logan and her husband Kenny were paid more than £500,000 to promote major tax avoidance scheme to their celebrity friends.

    The payments were made for attending star-studded events, including Royal Ascot, to entertain ‘wealthy individuals’ and introduce them to the tax avoidance venture.

    The scheme – used by celebrities including popstar Gary Barlow and Olympian turned BBC pundit Colin Jackson – sparked a huge public backlash when it was exposed.

    Welbeck, founded by Greg Knight, was dubbed ‘Britain’s biggest seller of tax avoidance products’ by the Press and HMRC said it could have cost taxpayers’ up to £120million.

    Mrs Logan, 49, who is paid up to £205,000 per year by the BBC, reportedly invested ‘thousands’ into Icebreaker, which offered tax relief”



  19. JohnC says:

    I’ve long since had a theory that it is inevitable that advanced civilisations eventually destroy themselves as their ‘intellectuals’ force their own ideology on everybody which is incompatible with the laws of nature which enabled them to dominate in the first place.

    So my interest was pricked on an article which came up about how advanced ancient Egypt was and I wondered how – like all the others – they were destroyed.

    Lo and behold – look what I found:

    ‘The precise identity of the Sea Peoples is still unknown, but most scholars believe they were an ethnically diverse band of refugees from the western Mediterranean displaced by drought and famine, who came east looking for new lands to conquer and inhabit.’

    ‘In the 12th century B.C., the entire Mediterranean region went through a cataclysmic event known as the “Bronze Age Collapse.” For the kingdoms that fell to the Sea Peoples—or to other contemporaneous calamities like drought and famine—the collapse was swift and absolute. The Mycenaeans of Greece and the Hittites of Anatolia, for instance, saw their cities, cultures and even written languages essentially wiped out.’

    Sounds frighteningly familiar.

    History always repeats itself because after a couple of generations, the young people always think they know better and would not make the same mistakes.

    And here we are. Doing it all again under the facism of the intolerant, nasty Left.

    I fully expect some far-Left professor will have produced a ‘panorama’ style report explaining why our situation is not the same. Maybe the same one who wrote a similar report about how Hitler was in fact far-right and not an ideology driven national socialist after all. Those articles are always amusing to read due to the clear desperation and emotive language the biased author always shows.

    @ John C

    Worth looking at what happened to Rome with the barbarians:

    Barbarian Invasion: The Beginning of the End for Rome?

    In 406 AD, there was a large-scale barbarian invasion across the Rhine frontier into the territory of the Western Roman Empire, beginning a period of upheaval and decline.

    Lasting from the mid-to-late-4th century until the 560s, large numbers of Germanic peoples, Huns, Avars, and Slavs either migrated within the Roman Empire’s boundaries or else migrated into the Empire from outside its borders. Traditionally, the arrival of the Huns in Europe in 375 is considered the beginning of the Migration Period, while the Lombard conquest of Italy in 568 marks its end.

    n 370 AD hordes of Goths were camped on the Danube River pleading to cross into Roman territory. They were fleeing other barbarians, the Huns, who subjected them to abuse, hunger, enslavement, etc.

    Newly hired Goth soldiers weren’t too interested in fighting for Rome. They and their kin didn’t intend to learn Latin or assimilate into the Roman culture. They were interested only in the safety and advantages of Rome.

    Before long, the Roman benefits weren’t appreciated and the Goths sacked Roman cities, followed by other barbarian tribes that entered rotten-to-the-core Rome, rampaging at will throughout the empire, killing, burning and looting. The Dark Ages began. Today tourists see the results of Rome’s experiment with mass migration. They are called “Roman ruins.”

      John / Z

      Yes, totally agree. When you reach a certain advanced age, you have been able to witness and even keep track of a a similar evolution but a microcosm of the societal version. That is, commercial entities that are born, survive and grow initially, “all hands to the pumps” style. It is interesting to watch the development right up to the symptom of decline where the small company needs to employ a ‘Diversity Manager’. Steep decline inevitably follows.

      I’m no philosopher but common sense tells me that the, now, so-called, “Liberal Democracies” are all working toward their ultimate and cherished goal: ‘Anything Goes’ for every citizen which is what we are seeing right now, in effect, Chaos with the evaporation of any Rules based System. Interesting topic in itself. Some years ago I bought and read the excellent paperback “Chaos” by James Gleick. Seems even chaos eventually becomes naturally ‘organised’ as some point.

      Then there’s the WEF, determined to, ‘buck the trend’. Ha Ha…….. Good luck with that.

    Rishi Sunak hails new NI Brexit deal but DUP concerns remain
    7 minutes ago


    Rishi – selected to be PM (not by the people)


    With 383 votes in favour, the European Parliament elected Ursula von der Leyen President of the next European Commission in a secret ballot on 16 July.

    She is set to take office on 1 November 2019 for a five-year term. There were 733 votes cast, one of which was not valid. 383 members voted in favour, 327 against, and 22 abstained.

    Parliament currently comprises 747 MEPs as per the official notifications received by member state authorities, so the threshold needed to be elected was 374 votes, i.e. more than 50% of its component members. President Sassoli formally announced the requisite number before the results were revealed in plenary. The vote was held by secret paper ballot.

    I wonder why ???

    “South Sudan plagued by violence and corruption, Human Rights Council hears

    ‘Epic’ human rights crisis

    Also reporting to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, the chairperson of the Commission of Human Rights in South Sudan, Ms. Yasmin Sooka, underlined that since last March, the human rights situation in the country had deteriorated considerably and that a human rights crisis of “epic” proportions is unfolding in a dramatic way.

    She noted that there has been an increase in extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances and torture as well as rape and conflict-related sexual violence.

    The Government’s intolerance of criticism has also led to a brutal attack on fundamental freedoms and the suppression of dissent, using excessive force against civilians, she said.

    According to Ms. Sooka, between June and August of this year, more than 100 civilians were killed in an ethnic conflict of Tambura in Western Equatoria. Between 80,000 and 120,000 people have reportedly been displaced by the conflict, with thousands fleeing to neighbouring Bahr el Ghazal state and Ezo County. 
    Humanitarians under attack

    The chairperson also warned that the humanitarian community in the country is increasingly under attack, resulting in the suspension of their activities and the relocation of aid workers.

    More than 4.3 million people have been displaced, with almost 80% of the population believed to be living in extreme poverty, and more than 7.2 million people experiencing food insecurity, she continued.

    Ms. Sooka also pointed out that the UN humanitarian appeal for South Sudan amounts to approximately $ 1.7 billion, less than half of which has been committed by the international community. South Sudan was ranked seventh among 8 countries in the world with the worst humanitarian crises, she said.
    $73 million taken 

    Ms. Sooka also maintained that the country’s leaders have continued to divert “staggering amounts of money…from (the country’s) public coffers”.

    The result has been to undermine human rights and endanger people’s security in the country.

    According to investigations carried out by the Commission over the past two years, more than $73 million was been siphoned off since 2018. She also noted that this figure is only a fraction of the overall amount looted, as South Sudan’s ruling elites had diverted more than $4 billion, since 2012 – the year after independence. ”

    Covid inquiry: Race should be at its core, say campaigners

    ‘Race should be made a central part of the UK’s independent public inquiry into the pandemic, campaigners say.’

    ‘Ethnic minorities were significantly more likely to die with Covid-19, according to official figures.’

    ‘Lobby Akinnola, whose father, Femi, died with Covid in April 2020 at the age of 60, said “there’s no way [race] couldn’t have” played a role in his dad’s death.’

    “Racism is pervasive in every aspect of life. My dad really highlights why it’s so important to look at this as a systemic and structural problem, because he did everything right.”

    I don’t even know where to start for this utter nonsense from racist black people.

    Perhaps the equiry should look at why black people wouldn’t have the vaccine first. I read that they thought it allowed the government to track them. I wouldn’t want that either if I carried out a vastly disproportionate amount of crime.

    Of course the BBC are all over it and made it front page news.

      The EU concept of the ‘supremacy of EU law’ – which forces all other UK legislation to be interpreted so as to give way to EU law where there is a conflict (even if EU law was overridden by subsequent non-EU sourced UK law) – has been preserved by the 2018 Act so far as relevant to the interpretation, disapplication or quashing of domestic law passed or made before the end of the transitional period. This interpretative concept is alien to the UK legislative principles, whereby later parliaments (and their laws) can override earlier parliaments.

    Generalise to deflect edition

    Just as lovers of sport read their newspapers from back to front, it can be a happier experience reading the BBC online press line-up from bottom rated title to top.

    Down among the red tops we find perhaps the more realistic and cogent of takes: Got Brexit done… again (hopefully!) – says The Sun pointedly.

    Let’s not get carried away with all this fuss about the Northern Ireland deal. One recalls how the EU only made a massive mountain out of the Ulster molehill to serve as a road block designed to complicate the UK’s exit from their club. The Good Friday problem reviving the spectre of The Troubles was another project fear issue Remainers hoped would knee-cap Brexiteers.

    Looking at today’s press coverage from the opposite end of the telescope to the BBC, so to speak, the Daily Star, observes: Inside. Something or other about Brexit – which Mr AsI consideres fairly sums up the whole protracted Brussels ginned up saga.

    Did someone say something about EU food standards protections?

    The 2013 horse meat scandal was a food industry scandal in parts of Europe in which foods advertised as containing spicy beef were found to contain undeclared or improperly declared horse meat – as much as 100% of the meat content in some cases… Investigations by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) resulted in Ireland being the first EU state to report the presence of horse meat in beef and make the results public. (Thank you Wiki)

    Did someone claim cross-border smuggling was a post-Brexit problem?

    For as long there has been a border on the island of Ireland, smugglers have exploited the lawless roads… almost overnight the smugglers of South Armagh, under the control of the IRA, started bulk-buying cheaper washing powder in Northern Ireland and smuggled it across the border where it went on sale at a cheaper price… They were making about £1 for every box they sold in the Republic and it netted them a fortune… Something fascinating happened after the IRA ceasefires of the mid- to late 1990s. The smugglers under their control were producing so much illegal diesel oil that there was a glut of it… started to smuggle over diesel to hauliers across the Irish Sea at low prices free from tariffs and taxes (Guardian)

    It is a basic law of economics – and of human behaviour – that when governments put themselves in the way of free trade by artificially hiking prices within their jurisdiction – people will smuggle.

    We’ve known of this phenomenon since Poldark

    If there’s a favourite word over there in BBC land then it’s the R-word

    Forget the R rate… it’s all about the R-word

    Covid inquiry: Race should be at its core, say campaigners (BBC)

    There’s a super high R-word count in this short report: Elon Musk defends racist tirade by Dilbert creator Scott Adams (BBC) – we count five instances in the first fifty or so words of the article. That’s 10% of the BBC copy… do we think they’re getting their message across or perhaps their verbiage might be a tad too loaded toward a certain agenda?

    Besides, does this cartoon story from America where the black population is a significant 13% and where there are particular unique historical race resonances really warrent our BBC going quite so hoighty toighty?

    It’s a newspaper cartoon strip – that’s SO last centrury! Seriously… It’s a cartoon!

    As comic Brian Conley would admonish his audience as they presumed to become excited and boo at his apparent abuse of a soft toy character: It’s a puppet!

    Speaking of puppets… sometimes one just can’t resist the segueway…

    Has Rishi done the impossible? – asks the Daily Mail

    Time will tell. We doubt the electorate ought to grant him much credit – afterall we voted for Brexit and asked our political managers to simply do their job and carry it out for us. That goes for the civil servants too.

    Two sides of the feminism debate are exposed today.

    The achingly PC FT gushes: FTSE 350 groups hit goal 3 years early with women filling 40% of board seats

    Meanwhile the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper pauses to reflect: The end of ambition. How I learned to embrace life instead of work… I’m slowly making sense of how and why I deserted my full-time journalism job – and I’ve discovered the difference between success and happiness along the way

    Journo bossgirl Sophie Morris there… echoing the angst of her sister Elle Hunt over at the Gruan: ‘A bigger paycheck? I’d rather watch the sunset!’: is this the end of ambition? Until 2020, I lived by five-year plans – how very… Soviet…

    I had set my career track when I was still a child, racing through school to get to university, then university to get to work. I was often described as “driven” – approvingly by teachers and bosses, and pejoratively by ex-boyfriends, who perhaps felt they had got the raw end of the deal.

    Suffice to say our Elle comes close to admitting she yearns for a husband and family… but goes off on a tangent about: Hundreds of thousands have quit their jobs, most to take early retirement or live off savings, shrinking the UK labour force by an estimated 1 million workers. – that’s a serious issue. Mr AsI believes misbegotten Lockdown policies have demoralised the workforce.

    But one thinks the lady generalises to deflect: My burnout was especially distressing for being self-inflicted; I felt bewildered and betrayed, as if my trusty north star had led me astray. Gingerly, I started interrogating my ambition: what was I seeking from work, and where might this feeling be better sourced?


    • Flotsam says:

      Yes, the EU used the NI situation to try and knobble Brexit. This was on top of Remoaners like the BBC, Starmer and Gina Miller. Johnston’s NI protocol was widely criticised but he had to do something to get Brexit done. I always thought the NI protocol was just a means to and end and would be supplanted in the end


    • Fedup2 says:

    I just heard a clip of the London Mayor saying the people of London cannot buy tomatoes at the moment because of Brexit. I am in London at the moment and have been in a few supermarkets over the last few days and could have bought as many tomatoes as I wanted. The heritage ones in a budgens looked as though they had been there a while. And in Waitrose the Mutti canned range were probably on offer (I didn’t need any and didn’t look carefully but there were lots on the shelf.

    The Left repeated often that Boris was a liar. I think I will add ‘Liar’ to Khan’s name, especially to my left leaning London friends with old cars (ie the ones who will have to pay ULEZ).

    “Urgent search for baby as Constance Marten and Mark Gordon arrested”

    “Police say a missing baby is now the focus of their search after the infant’s parents, Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, were found and arrested in Brighton.”

    Arrested for what?
    Oh i forget it’s the BBC, basic journalism rules don’t apply.

    “Ms Marten’s father, Napier Marten, previously appealed to his daughter to turn herself in to the police.”

    For what ? Ignoring you since 2016?

    “Police are combing through the area to try and find the missing baby”
    Any evidence a baby exists.?
    If so and its died , I blame the police for hounding the mother.

    “When they first disappeared, police said they were concerned that the couple seemed to be “constantly moving and awake for at least a few days – which must be especially draining on someone who had recently given birth with no medical attention”.

    They hunt someone cross country for no reason, then become concerned it might be causing them sleep issues..

        Woke news black…out

        it seems,

        from other sources:

        “Gordon served 20 years in prison in the US for rape and battery committed when he was 14. He has been accused of cutting Marten off from her family and friends before they ran away with £15,000 from her trust fund.

        Marten, who had a family trust fund, had withdrawn large amounts of cash, between £5,000 and £15,000, as an escape fund before going on the run. The couple are believed to have bought burner phones and multiple sim cards to avoid being traced. They slept in tents and were spotted in the north-west, London, Essex and across the south-east of London, including at major ports.

        The baby is believed to have been born in the back seat of car on around January 5.”

      Arrested for child neglect I would have thought. The child comes first. A most peculiar situation though.


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      The police should really ask themselves if they make things better:

      I remember Raoul Moat who got banged up, years ago, for every crime in the book which could be summarised as: being an ‘evil male’. The feminist chief constable was purring with pride. Then the chap got out of prison, shot a traffic policeman which blinded him. This then caused the policeman’s own marriage to break-up and he eventually committed suicide.

      The chap on the run was eventually flushed out, not before Gazza turned up in a taxi. An unauthorised remote taser was fired and the man selling them also later committed suicide. So three broken families which is quite a burden on the tax payer.

      All of these cases including the recent Bulley woman case make me ask if the police actually make things worse by their intervening in the family.

      I am not saying that all families are good, just that no one has found a better way of raising children.

      Independent report
      Applying sharia law in England and Wales: independent review
      Independent review by Professor Mona Siddiqui and a review panel of experts into the application of sharia law in England and Wales by sharia councils.

      Home Office
      1 February 2018



      Justin Welby is right to take a stand against his predecessor, Rowan Williams’ most controversial announcement: that Britain should introduce sharia law. Ten years ago last month, Williams suggested parts of Islamic sharia law should be incorporated into British law. He argued that some kind of “constructive accommodation” was not only possible but desirable to better integrate British Muslims. The idea provoked almost universal condemnation, and now Williams’s successor has thankfully knocked down Williams’ poorly thought through stance.

      This isn’t to say, of course, that Muslims, mosques and halal food are not all welcome in Britain—diversity makes us richer.

      In coverage of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) decision not to take further action against the Labour Party regarding its handling of antisemitism allegations, we discussed Labour’s handling of the issue with the Labour peer, Baroness Anderson.

      She was asked about concerns expressed by the group Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), and its statement that: “In some Labour Party constituencies the situation has deteriorated to the point where Jews who do not support Israel or continue to support former Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, have become too frightened to attend party meetings for fear of intimidation or abuse.”
