    I hope all the luvvies and labour twats are proud of themselves, obviously pointing out that a black criminal is a criminal is waycist:

    “Revealed: Jamaican spared deportation after appeals by celebrities and Labour MPs had 17 previous convictions and used ‘right to family life’ to stay in Britain before he went on to commit murder

    Ernesto Elliott was due to be aboard a Home Office charter flight in Dec 2020. Just six months later he murdered a 35-year-old man in a horrific knife fight”


    “Ernesto Elliott’s appalling criminal record spanned 18 years from 2003, shortly after he arrived in the UK from his homeland.

    An open letter campaigning against the Jamaica flight which was supposed to deport Elliot was signed by supermodel Naomi Campbell, actor Thandiwe Newton, and broadcaster and historian Professor David Olusoga.

    A separate letter was signed by Labour politicians including Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott and Baroness Shami Chakrabarti.”


    • FrankZ says:

      Out of curiosity, looked at the Twitter feeds of some of these main enablers – Olusoga, Campbell, Lammy, Abbott, Corbyn, etc. to see what they had to say for themselves – as if one couldn’t guess. Total silence, naturally. They’re pathetic. My contempt for them, and they for the rest of us, is total.

      However, was amused to see this nonsense re-tweet from Abbott.


      It’s impossible to imagine what’s going on in the heads of these morons. What leads to a worldview that’s as infantile and one-tracked as theirs?

        This is extremely important:

          Perhaps because “Asian” students (which in the US means Oriental) are hard working and don’t cause trouble? Obviously, the fact that a racial minority can do well by working hard and obeying the law gives the lie to all the theories that blacks do badly because the USA be raciss. So “Asians” can’t be a racial minority, they be white.

    Staff working for the BBC’s regional services in England are to stage a 24-hour strike in March over plans to merge some local radio shows.

    The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said the stoppage would start at 11:00 GMT on 15 March, which is Budget day.

    Further strikes during May’s local elections, coronation and Eurovision are being considered, the NUJ said.

    The BBC has announced plans for its 39 local stations to share more shows in afternoons, evenings and at weekends.

    That would be 39 people to read the news, 39 people to read the weather report, 39 people to read the traffic news etcetera etcetera.No wonder the BBC wastes billions of pounds.

        It’s a fact that any autocue-reader, subsidised by the taxpayer (who is under threat of prosecution if the TV tax is left unpaid), will probably not be good enough to relate to the real world, and actually try to seek out and publish stories!

        Luckily, since all those self-proclaimed ‘sleb’ ARs, (autocue-readers in future – saves ink), have had to go elsewhere, possibly because they’re a liability to the soft touch of the civil serpents’ PR division, (the bbc) so most normal citizens can avoid their whinging and yapping to their heart’s content!

        Just glancing through the BBC’s website this morning is a boring chore and reveals about the same level of AR skills as yesterday’s freebie rag on a number 11 bus!

    I am somewhat confused about the story of the aristocrat and her lover. I can understand that now she has been found with her lover and without a baby, there is concern. But according to the BBC1 news at 6pm, the police have been hunting them for months. I have not heard an explanation of why the police were searching for an unmarried couple and their baby. There is obviously more to the story than we are being told. I am nosy! Does anyone know what this is really about?

          He’s actually British. The Americans expelled him after he served his sentence for rape, because they are not members of the ECHR. Same reason Brits who commit crime in Australia get sent back. It’s what ordinary, self-governing countries can do. Just not us.


    • Eddy Booth says:

      Best guess the girls rich eccentric father was / is trying to steal the baby from her.


    • JohnC says:

      I’ve been saying the same thing : all this attention and expense for some people who chose to go live it rough. Clearly escaping from something yet that possibility absolutely and deliberately ignored.

      So I read this article with interest to see what the arresting charges were : ‘suspicion of child neglect’ ???. They were carrying it around with them FFS.

      Maybe they were too scared to say they suspected the black rapist was forcing the girl and baby to go with him because it’s racist to point it out – though it would have been OK if he was white.

      The point for me about this whole story is that we cannot trust what the BBC or our police tell us any more. We are only told what it suits them to tell us.

      Perhaps the BBC will tell us the total cost of this search for people who -as far as I can make out – did not do anything illegal. No – of course they won’t. Though it could be a big story for them if it meant getting rid of another Tory Brexit supporter.

    I haven’t seen the BBC 10pm news for an age – so a piece by a lefty called ‘Michael Buchanan left me even more shocked at the bias than I expected – it was about ‘homeless ‘ people .

    It wasn’t a news report – it was a political broadcast – expecting the State to provide housing for drug addicts and other failures in that typical bbc nanny state way .

    Buchanan often turns up on ‘today ‘ doing the same lefty preaching ‘give me ‘ give me ‘ a ‘ benefits junkie warrior …..pretending to be a journo yuk .

    The lead was the dysfunction pair and their baby which is either dead – non existent or being housed by a friend . How it’s the main news is beyond me .

    The off switch came with a story about a bloke rapist pretending to be a trannie to screw the system … now where’s that damn death penalty …?

    What people don’t grasp is that criminals spend 24 hours a day in prison trying to work out how to screw the system – aided by lawyers after their percentage . So the trannie nonsense is a new income source for the trash . BBC loves it though because they can get off on ‘human rights ‘ crap …£


    • TrickCyclist says:

      Buchanan is the bloke who speaks with a pretentious, in-your-face Scottish accent.
      He made some comment about the homeless “on English streets.” It was clearly a pointed remark but obviously BBC reporters can’t be expected to keep their prejudices to themselves.

    The US has within the last 6 months just spent $290 million on a drug called ‘Nplate’ “The Nplate treatment works by stimulating the body’s production of platelets, which counteracts the reduction in platelet count caused by radiation sickness”

    Get that? radiation sickness on such a scale? Here’s the real kicker though the drug only has an 18 months shelf life !

    Why would any country spend that kind of money unless it knew something was an immenent risk? They never stocked this before so why now?


    • Eddy Booth says:

      Why because someone is cashing in at the tax payers expense?

      Thoughtful I’m undecided about this being a sign of immanent nuclear doom. But have a look at the NTI (Nuclear Threat Initiative), who are working with the WEF to establish global DNA protocols.

      There’s a growing list of “threats facing us” determined by global agencies, many of which require more DNA gathering. Covid tests have set a baseline.

      Public Health England and the Joint Biosecurity Centre came under one roof during the C19 — UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA). Note how healthcare is transforming away from clinical practice into a top-down global security issue… and there’s no doubt that gene-editing tech is being pushed on humans, animals and food. “For our safety”.

    Ukraine war: Viral conspiracy theories falsely claim the war is fake

    ‘A number of US right-wing accounts with large followings posted a series of baseless claims that suggested the entire Ukraine war might be a hoax perpetrated by Western media and governments.’

    All right-wing accounts. Of course they are.

    As I read this article, I see the BBC concentrate on disproving claims that the actual war is a complete hoax. The idea that it is what we are being told that might not be true is not even considered.

    Next we are told:
    ‘Those spreading the most viral claims included some who had previously been suspended from Twitter and allowed back onto the platform following Elon Musk’s takeover.’

    What a pathetic, spiteful attempt to infer it’s all Elon Musk’s fault.

    They start with the bold, large font heading ‘The war is not fake’ just to make sure you are onside before they get going. It’s so blatant and childlike, I almost laughed.

    Then we get:

    ‘Another Twitter influencer with 1.4 million followers claimed there was “no footage” and “no detailed updates” of the war.

    That post was later shared by former US national security adviser Michael Flynn, who added: “I double dare anyone to say he is wrong.”‘

    I agree with that comment 100%. It doesn’t say the war is fake as the BBC are trying to imply, it says that what we are being told by the Western media is a deliberate scam. And everything I have seen supports that. The scam is that we are supposed to believe the Ukranians are good, Russia is bad and Russia must be destroyed.

    I have mentioned several times here that I find it almost impossible to find the kind of war footage which was all over the internet during the war in Syria. Unedited head-cam stuff of engagements on the ground where you can actually understand what is going on.

    Now all I can find is WW2 propaganda-style 15 second clips of glorious Ukraine blowing up another Russian helicopter or tank.

    Then the BBC do their usual tricks to swamp the real story with pictures of irrelevant stuff which is definitely not fake such as damaged apartments to leave the casual reader with the impression anyone who disagrees with the MSM is wrong.

    Funnily enough, they didn’t include their own fake pictures used to support certain stories. Because they were absolutely 100% fake.

    Normally I don’t care when they do this for wars elsewhere. But this time it’s different : we are being led into WW3 on the back of outrageous propaganda, deceit and deliberately misleading information. And the BBC with their ‘trusted news feed’ to swamp news feeds with selected rhetoric are right at the heart of it.

    Another story I saw confirms it. Note how the huge story of the Nord pipeline was dropped almost immedately. That proves to me that everyone knows the USA were behind it. Now I read it has caused an ecological disaster in the area. But not a peep from the BBC. Normally this would be front-page, headline news for these virtue-signalling hypocrites.

    At the moment, Russia are winning and they are doing so through sheers weight of numbers + artillery shells. You try to find that information on the BBC. Their top story is a drone which crashed near Moscow. Totally irrelevant in the scheme of things.

    This level of disinformation worries me far more than Putin.

    I feel like a German in the 1930’s who has to listen to the Nazi rhetoric and can see where it is leading but can do nothing about it.

    Thin end of the wedge here ?

    “New anti-spying law risks curbing freedom of Press, warn peers who are challenging the National Security Bill as it makes its way through Parliament.

    The National Security Bill puts journalists investigating serious scandals at risk of being jailed for up to 14 years if their activities are deemed to assist foreign intelligence agencies.

    Lord Black has warned that the wide definitions used in the draft legislation ‘could potentially criminalise one of the core functions of journalism: reporting on leaks… about governments, organisations and companies’.

    Baroness Stowell, who chairs the Lords communications committee, warned: ‘We must not legislate in a way that risks journalists not legitimately exposing serious failings or wrongdoing by government or public servants.’ ”

    Scottish Labour and the Conservatives condemned the SNP’s decision to bar the press from a series of hustings where the three candidates will debate their views in front of party members.

    “The party have adopted a ‘nothing to see here’ attitude, when the public ultimately want to see the three candidates to replace Nicola Sturgeon properly scrutinised on their plans for Scotland.

    “The SNP are famed for their lack of transparency but this really takes the biscuit. They have laughably said by excluding the media that these events will be a safe space for members. What do they think the media are going to do to them?”

    What will the coverage have in common ?

    It took too long
    Why wasn’t it found earlier
    And if the body was found by the public – why?

    To me these stories are tragic to those involved – but don’t warrant the national blanket coverage it gets . Funny that we don’t get much detail about the rapist …..

    The splash by the telegraph of memos / twitters from the Health Secretary is greeted by one of his lackies as ‘a leak of confidential information by someone agenda driven ‘….

        Prof Jay said: “No-one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1,400 children were sexually exploited over the full inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013.”

        Revealing details of the inquiry’s findings, Prof Jay said: “It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered.”

        The inquiry team found examples of “children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone”.

    Ornithologically speaking edition

    Our NHS may be a busted flush, with our government flushing our good money after bad: NHS £14bn recovery plan already failing to meet targets, MPs warn… ‘It’s a crisis with all the metrics going in the wrong direction’ (Guardian) – that’s metrics (whatever they are?) not medics going in the wrong direction… which apparently they are…

    Thousands of new doctors opt for a better life abroad… Disillusioned medics are quitting the NHS and heading for countries such as Australia (Guardian); NHS hiring more doctors from outside UK and EEA than inside for first time… Jeremy Hunt questions ‘morally dubious’ recruitment as thousands hired from poorer countries (Guardian) – practitioner population replacement, anyone?

    They say the camel was designed by committee.

    Our NHS was the lovechild of the Second World War and State rationing, bureaucractic central planning with full-on managerial socialistic control of every aspect of economy and society. Cradle to grave, indeed; the utopian notion lives on… and on to this day: TV chef Tom. Why I back free school meals (Daily Mirror)

    Ultimately governments cannot control the market. Escalating costs of advanced modern healthcare and the excessive demand side growth (the less said about that the better because governments might have controlled immigration to a certain extent) doomed the NHS freebie at the point of access model.

    Speaking of models… Lockdown was the mistaken State policy straw that broke the camel’s back. Mind you, Lockdowns fitted well with the top-down therapeutic State model that cherished the NHS as some be all and end all, all-singing all-dancing (the less said about those TikTok dances the better) institution for institution’s sake, putting that love of the institution, or the notion of the institution, above all actual public health concerns.

    The direction of news flow ought to be broadcast and on-line first, next day paper print press second. When that natural flow is reversed you know something is up: Covid: FBI chief Christopher Wray says China lab leak ‘most likely‘ (BBC two hours ago... when the Telegraph told us yesterday – so they knew the day before)

    If ministers had stopped to think for a moment… if that really had been a worldwide epidemic that had thousands dropping in the street every day and it had overwhelmed our NHS – then who could actually blame the Tories for the China bug – other than for failing to secure and quarantine our borders sooner?

    With the camel’s back now seen to be broken, chickens noticed coming home to roost and assorted other proverbs currently in play politically, someone will have to carry the can…

    Scapegoat to be thrown to the wolves in chief: Hancock rejected Whitty’s advice on care home tests (Telegraph) – notice we’re not being encouraged to ask for instance about the policy of dispatch of those vulnerable elderly patients from NHS hospitals tout suite into the care homes.

    Loyal Tory girl plays her part well: Isabel Oakeshott. I had to release these messages to avoid a Covid whitewash… 100,000 leaked WhatsApp messages (Telegraph) – Dominic Cummings involved this time, or someone else still in the loop, we wonder?

    There’s another liberal Tory girl fretting today and wishing all the awkward unpalatble at the dinner party table conservative policy stuff away: Brexit cost me friendships and my marriage… I pray Rishi can finally end this uncivil war. Sarah Vine (Daily Mail)

    Don’t worry, the lucrative corporate crony bandwagon has some way to roll yet: Jaguar owner Tata demands £500mn of aid to build battery plant in Britain… India group weighs location… Ministers given weeks to pledge funds… Electric future at stake (FT)

    NHS data contract battle… A group of domestic companies has said it wants to challenge US frontrunner Palantir to build a £480mn operating system for the health service (FT) – that’ll be spent on computer operating systems, not surgical threatre operations.

    Big corporate business to flee UK post-Brexit?

    City was in danger of losing its largest company as Shell explored move to UK (FT) – that’ll be Royal Dutch Shell – they didn’t want to move to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris or some European borse?

    Don’t create drama over Brexit deal, Rishi Sunak tells Tory MPs (BBC)

    FBI chief Christopher Wray says China lab leak ‘most likely’

    Without a shred of shame, the BBC report this story like it is news.

    No mention whatsoever of the bile and venom they vented at Trump for calling it the Chinese virus nor any criticism of twitter and facebook censoring people and calling them conspiracy theorists.

    Will they now reconsider their use of the phrase ‘false claims’ against other statements which they cannot possibly know to be false ?. Of course they won’t.

    I had a happy few moments searching google for ‘trump covid china bbc’ and reading the articles the BBC must be dying to delete.

    ‘Why you can trust the BBC’.

    You absolutely cannot. They are without shame or remorse. The agenda is everything. They lie as much as they can get away with.

      I read this bbc article and thought that after the initial reporting of the fbi stance, they did their utmost to rubbish it – citing all the previous theories and opinions:

      “Many scientists point out there is no evidence that it leaked from a lab.“

      “And other US government agencies have drawn differing conclusions to the FBI’s.”

      ”A natural origin is still the more likely theory, said Professor David Robertson, head of viral genomics and bioinformatics at University of Glasgow.“


      In fact, many more words spent trying to confirm its origin from animals/natural source.
      Chinese funding anyone?

      Utter BS.

      Not the Maitlis kind.

      ‘Experts’. A couple of young ingenues handed a cubicle, a PC, a Google search account and the BBc secret stuff edGuds is but a recipe for #propagandabacked by censorship, and no amount of ‘telling’ it often enough using the word ‘trust’ will change that.

      Look at the engagement. A phone booth talking shop that makes the Limp Dem conference look like a Trump Rally.

      I don’t like words like ‘correct’ as they are presumptive, but certainly surfing around is only sensible;e to make your own mind up, and now what a ditzy bimbo is told to tell you.


      ““Dilbert” creator Scott Adams went on a racist rant over the weekend that got his comic strip canceled from newspapers, calendars, coffee mugs — everything. He threw his career away by calling black people a “hate group.”

      Except that’s not what happened.

      Before jumping on the “OMG Scott Adams is a RAYCISS!” bandwagon, I did something far more radical than anything he said. I watched the video. I read takes from both sides. I looked to see what Adams had to say about it, and about the reactions (both positive and negative) that he received.”

      Best I can tell, the BBC cut and pasted what its TMI partners punted out without reading either.


      “I get the feeling that might have been his goal all along, to get Dilbert pulled from newspapers that despise its creator. Adams is taking his comic strip private, available soon to subscribers only on his Locals page.”

      Rings true. Like every tweet from Starmer and his front bench circus clown show, and every hack Beeboid from Maitlis to CroxOf, when it sinks in they are strapped to the mast of a sinking ship or about to be. Only the likes of Lammy or Rayner are too thick to twig, and Naga is bound to BBC employment no matter what by her own cursed melanin hue.

      And who is holding the BBC to account?:


      Yeah, good luck with that.

      And for good measure:


      The BBc routinely blows of FOIs (hell no) and even the ICO (hell even more no) but is allowed to.

      By government…

      The old form of democracy was flawed, but there was a level of oversight from completing parties and their ideologically aligned wing media complements.

      No longer, the ‘new form of democracy’ ©️BBC/XR etc pits the establishment (all parties, all media) against the actual voting public’s interests to rig stuff to suit the formers’ agendas and wallets.

      Hence, NetZero pushed through by BBC #28Gate Arts grads and local democracy hacks in council areas.

      I just had a follow up to my Citizens’ Climate Assembly attendance, in the form of a research from from a researcher at Lancaster University.

      Unsurprisingly, as utterly rigged as the Assembly to generate the ‘story’ to feed to the media to back up the government classes. It was frankly a travesty of research practice.

      And I said so. I expect a knock at the door soon. Or a banning.

    Anybody watched the set-up on GB News yesterday evening?

    Rees-Mogg ‘interviewed’ David Davis on the topic of the NI Protocol. All warm words of support from, apparently, two stalwarts of Brexit. A ‘viewer’ is likely to have concluded that, ‘well if those two agree the deal is good, it must be’. Well, perhaps not.

    Mogg touched upon the issue of VAT levels. This topic was explained by a DUP member earlier in the day and, as I understand it, a number of aspects of the fictitious NI ‘autonomy’ depends on whether the EU view any actions by NI to constitute the EU being left at a commercial disadvantage. Plenty of unwritten scope there for EU mischief et al. and the ECJ seems to me.
    No mention by the two, stalwarts…………….

      The immigrants make their way north, having no desire to assimilate to French culture, but continuing to demand a First World standard of living, even as they flout laws, do not produce, and murder French citizens, such as factory bosses and shopkeepers, as well as the ordinary people who do not welcome them. They are also joined by the immigrants who already reside in Europe, as well as various left-wing and anarchist groups. Across the West, more and more migrants arrive and have children, rapidly growing to outnumber whites. In a matter of months, the white West has been overrun and pro-immigrant governments have been established, while the white people are ordered to share their houses and flats with the immigrants. The village containing the troops is bombed flat by airplanes of the new French government, referred to only as the “Paris Multiracial Commune”. Within a few years, most Western governments have surrendered. The mayor of New York City is made to share Gracie Mansion with three African-American families from Harlem; migrants gather at coastal ports in West Africa and South Asia and swarm into Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; London is taken over by an organization of non-white residents known as the “Non-European Commonwealth Committee”, who force the British queen to have her son marry a Pakistani woman; millions of black Africans from around the continent gather at the Limpopo River and invade South Africa; and only one drunken Soviet soldier stands in the way of hundreds of thousands of Chinese peasants as they overrun Siberia.

  48. pugnazious says:

    BBC very conflicted over the Hancock ‘leaks’…it would love to attack the Tories over covid failures but the BBC was a full-on supporter and chief cheerleader for lockdown and other restrictions…hence it labels Isabel Oakeshott immediately as an anti-lockdown trouble-maker….questioning her motives and interpretation…not something they do with other leaks and source of leaks that match its own agenda…the BBC more than happy to swallow them hook, line and sinker without asking too many questions about source or motive…..the BBC asks ‘Did she do the right thing by revealing these messages and breaking her NDA?’…not a question they’d ask of anyone else…they’d be heroic fighters for justice who should not be silenced by an oppressive NDA.

    Did laugh hearing one of the BBC’s finest tell us that we cannot rush to judgement…only a public inqury with all the facts can establish the truth!…lol….this the BBC that is more than happy to launch an all out attack on the government when it suits facts or no facts….did they wait for this acclaimed and esteemed public inquiry before they trashed the government over PPE or testing or deaths in care homes? No, of course not.

    Odd how the BBC now seeks to downplay and dismiss the Telegraph reports…the BBC’s health reporter, Nick Triggle, gives Hancock a helping hand…

    ‘As Prof Sir Chris Whitty made clear in his December report on the pandemic, the problem the UK faced was that there was not enough tests available.

    By mid-April only around 20,000 tests a day were being done. It meant testing had to be strictly rationed’

    Trouble is…one might ask….tests may have been in short supply that day but the next, or the next week? And what was Hancock doing to ramp up supply? If supplies came on stream in the following days why did the policy still not change?

    R4 brought on a producer of the test kits who said on April 14, the day of the message, they were short of them but production was literally just about to be increased massively…so supplies would be available in the following days…thus all people going into care homes could have been tested.

    Triggle and others seem to ignore that and just seem to think history stopped on April 14 and don’t look beyond that….no tests available on April 14…Hancock is ‘innocent’.

    Also interesting to catch someone on Today asking why the government had dumped well-laid plans for dealing with pandemics and opted for the extreme and untested lockdown startegy witrh all its enormous downsides.

    The answer to that is massive pressure…not least from the BBC…to lockdown…to ‘do something’.

    The BBC has played a hugely detrimental part in the covid saga…the part played by the media, the national broadcaster in particular, should be part of the inquiry.

    I was always intrigued, during covid restrictions, who were the most paranoid.

    It was inevitably , in my personal experience, the purple hair / hippy brigade.

    In big letters outside : Sanitise, masks, even if you are wearing gloves you will sanitise etc etc

    We truly are destined to go back to the middle ages if that lot get their way.

    So much for their bleeding spells if they can’t even handle a cold virus.
