        This is the brave new world of the Left. People are given power because of quotas and political correctness. Ability is way down the list.

        Fiona Onasanya (the black Labour MP who voted on Brexit in an ankle tag) was selected by Corbyn to stand purely on her CV. A liar in life has no problems lying on their CV.

        The world is on a downward spiral. Thanks in no small part to the BBC.

          Prog’s like Woman’s Hour on R4 consider that it is a good thing ‘per se’ to have any woman in a position of authority: it’s a win for “us” women. What they find hard to ask is, are Kamala Harris and Cressida Dick, for example, really up to the job if you judge by their records in office? It would likely be even worse with Michelle Obama, if she ran for President, since they would think that she must be good if Black and female, on a quota basis.

    Snow and below zero temperatures in March. Must be global warming.

    I keep hearing from various prominent people that there is a climate emergency because of the “evidence”. This evidence is apparently all the climate events happening here and around the world. “We’ve have had a very dry February and snow in March” says Steven Pound on GBnews this evening. Ken Livingstone had a lot to say about a couple of hot summers, a record high last year, floods in Pakistan etc etc.
    The ignorance displayed is unbelievable and alarming that this is the level of people that run this country.

      I was due to go out this morning and Paul Hudson (Look North) last night specifically said it would be cold with blue skies but no snow in my area today. Amazingly the ground is white over. And the met office can tell us how how it will be in 100 years.

    Ukraine denies involvement in Nord Stream pipelines blast

    As you probably realised by now, I’m sick to the back teeth of all the lies and propaganda we are being force-fed as if we are idiots.

    The latest story is that it was a couple of Ukranians who did it without any knowledge by the Ukranian government or the USA. The article goes out of it’s way to quote Ukrainian officials saying they had nothing to do with it.

    ‘.. the boat used to plant the explosives was a yacht hired from a firm based in Poland, which reportedly belonged to two Ukrainians. The nationalities of those who carried out the attack were unclear.’

    So it doesn’t shed any light whatsoever on who might have done it.

    ‘However, the paper says German investigators have not yet found any evidence as to who ordered the destruction. It also points out that there is still the possibility of a false flag operation which was intended to point towards Ukraine.’

    Makes no sense at all. What about the most likely possibility : The USA/Ukraine did it to make sure Europe was isolated from Russian gas ?. But it still might have been Russia.

    It’s beyond ridiculous now. There is not a single scrap of evidence in the whole article of who did it. All they know is someone hired a yacht in Poland.

    ‘Nato and Western leaders have stopped short of directly accusing Russia, although the EU has previously said Russia uses its gas pipelines as a weapon against the West.’

    So saying Russia used gas as a weapon against the West in the past is supposed to make us think that they probably blew it up (and hence removed any possibility of using them as weapon again) ?. What kind of BBC idiot wrote this ?. It makes no sense at all.

    But the bit which made me smile was this:

    ‘The exact cause of the 26 September blasts that hit the natural gas pipelines is unknown, but it is widely believed they were attacked.’

    No shit sherlock. I wonder who does not believe they were attacked and they both just blew up ?.

    And all they through it there is no suggestion whatsoever of who stood to gain the most from it : the USA. They are doing everything they can to make sure this war continues to the end.

    Maybe the USA are right : maybe they WILL lose a war in the future by a combined Russia and China and this really is a fight for their continued future global dominance.

    But what I really cannot accept is this mass propaganda and lies they are subjecting the entire Western world to. It’s a real eye opener about what our society is when our MSM are so utterly and completely corrupt. It exposes what a total sham ‘journalistic ethics’ are. They have none at all.

    I can sum this lengthy article up much less space:
    ‘It wasn’t Ukraine or the USA who did it. It was two men (who might have been Ukranian or Russian) with the resources to plant explosives underwater. Or Russia. But definitely not the USA or Zelensky.’

    And who is the BBC rising star entrusted to deliver this news ?.

    No surprise there then. Her ‘dream job’ apparently. Wonder if she knows why she got it.

    • kingkp says:

      The entire last three years have been the greatest insult to my intelligence. Hancock spoke of ‘deploying the next variant’. So the obvious implication is the variant doesn’t exist, which would make any intelligent person realise NO virus exists. The virus scam was introduced to cover up the collapse of the fiat system and give them more time to replace the current broken system with their Digital IDs and CBDCs. Of course, we were derided as swivel-eyed loons but the vast majority in this god-forsaken country aren’t laughing now are they as they slowly begin to wake up to the fact the swivel-eyed, conspiracy nutjobs were and are right. You will own nothing and Klaus will be happy. We told you three years. The vast majority did not listen and will not listen until they are completely dispossessed of everything including their own bodily autonomy and that of their children.

  7. JohnC says:

    Not specifically BBC (though they are 100% part of the same problem), is anyone else’s facebook feed being flooded with ‘suggested posts’ which are ALL either about something a woman has done (like become a pilot, worked on the first atom bomb or – as today – what work they did in the war) or about what some black person has done which does not involve crime (such as giving them credit for a scientific discovery which a little google shows the link is tenuous at best or worked in a large team of whites – but it’s made out like they did it on their own) ?.

    It’s as sexist and racist as you can get. I’m almost tempted to post asking why they are always about women and BAME but I think I would get trolled very quick by the fact all of the comments are from completley gullible idiots (and either 90% women or 90% black people).

    Too thick to realise how sexist/racist they are …

    Asylum plan ‘very concerning’ and would break international law – UN refugee agency

    And they’re off.

    Stand by for a relentless daily onslaught by the BBC abusing the vast empire the UK public have been forced to fund. Every sandal-wearing activist who wants one will be given a soapbox and presented as if their opinion is very important.

    First up it’s ‘Vicky Tenant’ who said:
    ‘.. told the BBC the measure would break international law and was not needed to stop Channel crossings.’
    Really Vicky ?. Unfortunately she didn’t elaborate on either of those points or how that might work considering every attempt has failed utterly.

    ‘Ms Tennant said: “We’re very concerned. This is effectively closing off access to asylum in the UK for people arriving irregularly.’
    Ooops. You just shown your true colours and changed the word ‘illegally’ to your own, different word ‘irregularly’ Vicky. Implying it’s not illegal at all. You’ve changed it to a weasel worded lie. That makes anything else you say worthless.

    I am still waiting for someone to explain to me why someone in one country who leaves it to illegally enter another country cannot be returned immediately to the country they just came from.


    • MarkyMark says:

      International Law –

      Dover MP Natalie Elphicke told the Commons that the BBC’s “shocking report” contained the “breath-taking” disclosure of free French public bus services being used to ferry migrants from camps to Dunkirk beaches.



      Today the BBC journalists Michael Keohan and Colin Campbell released a shocking report on the channel crossings. It showed people smugglers selling their wares brazenly in the migrant camps and many children living in unsafe and dangerous conditions, as well as—this is breathtaking—a free French public bus service that migrants can use to travel directly from the camps to the Dunkirk departure beaches. Will my right hon. Friend allow a statement on the issue of tackling the small boat crossings and the Government’s response in their work with France?




      • JohnC says:

        Just like the Biden free-pass for unaccompanied children from Mexico – isn’t it just amazing how the Left can suddenly drop all interest in the dangers being faced by children when it doesn’t suit the agenda ?. Yet it’s the biggest issue you can imagine when it does.

        Their totally false ethics disgust me. They don’t care one bit about anyone unless they can be weaponised as ‘victims’ for the agenda.

      If you wanted a clear example of why the UN represents Globalists, WEF, Soros and the likes and has no interest in the man/woman in the street, consider it no further. Never mind about removing the UK from the ECHR. The UN also. Is that Immigration Treaty still in place? The one Treason May slunk away discreetly to sign in New York a few years ago. That would be a good start.

      The current proposed legislation will fail. These efforts are merely a delaying tactic. The Braverman efforts will be thwarted and even if the legislation is Laid, Soros will be asked to get his cheque book out for a legal challenge. Aka, Gina Miller.

      Beats me why the BBC is not told to give up a floor or more in its buildings around the country for “refugees”

    The bbc tries to accommodate different cultures and very few are interested, and as more and more of the British public turn against it and it doesn’t relate to the others, hopefully this will be its downfall SOONER than later

    Let’s have a word edition

    Lineker faces BBC rebuke for likening small boats plan to Nazis (Daily Mail)

    Or we have the somewhat more measured (avoiding the N-word): Gary Lineker to be ‘spoken to’ after comparing UK asylum policy to 1930s Germany (BBC)

    I say don’t knock it. Our Gary may not be a tip-top historian but he has rather cogently asserted the Left’s case – unless we open our borders to absolutely anyone who feels like coming over here, then ipso facto we are literally Hitler

    One recalls the pre-referdum Brexit debate. You’ll remember back then before we suddenly for whatever reason decided to call it Brexit.

    A clear majority of the public gave their approval for the UK’s independence from the EU and required the establishment to sort that out for us… but they regreted having gifted us the chance to declare that decision, named the thing Brexit and proceeded to fight relentlessly against it (they still are) but I digress.

    The point being about the prior debate – Remainer campaigners went with project fear indicating how terrible it would be were we to leave. That was true to a point because obviously Brussels would try to punish us – pour encourager les autre – as a Frenchman previously keen to unite Europe once remarked.

    There was a noticable dearth of positive reasons to stay and further entwine ourselves with the EU. Nick Clegg (remember him? there’s one for the teenagers) debating Nigel Farage on TV (like Sam Smith going into the ring against Marvin Hagler) well Clegg had some tedious crib sheet drawn up by civil servants. He focused on something called the European Arrest Warrent. Implying should we leave the EU the continentals would flood us with their criminals. As if they would. In fact, it was more the case that we could perhaps retrieve lawbreakers who came here and then fled abroad – because obviously we’d want to bring them back (?) Shamima Begum, anyone? But as a downside British citizens might also find themselves extradited and banged up in some Bulgarian brig at the mercy of their laws.

    The only time Mr AsI recalls a positive vision ventured in favour of the EU was not from a politician but from the pink beret sporting comic Eddie Izzard in debate with Leave campaigner Dan Hannan. Izzard rambled – as was his schtick – but talked airily of all the world’s continents coming together in some future global aboliton of nation states and Europe was the pioneer in this – why spoil it.

    We may not like the sound of that vision but at least he spoke out loud the globalist notion Remainers had in mind. So it is with our Gary.

      Asiseeit – I think linaker scored an own goal here – and his response should get him a red card . I suspect though – that once the ref has had a chat with him it will be downgraded to yet another yellow card – but under current rules he won’t miss the next game and it gets wiped almost immediately .

      I think those in the VAR room will accept a bung to look the other way .

      Excellent news for the snacking industry and those who support it – such as linaker ( what a link) – the NHS is gonna dosh out a new drug for very fat people so that they can continue to eat pizza and crisps and tarama and cake and chocolate and more cake – because the new slimming drug solves all ……
      The bbc is moaning that fat / obese types will only get the jab for 2 years. But why does the likes of walkers crisps ( coke cola) sponsor the drug – maybe it can be supplied with family packs of crisps?

      After the piece I asked Alexa for the cause of obesity. It cited the NHS as eating too much and not enough activity . …..

      ‘Today ‘ is full on socialist today even more than usual – with a blood pressure raising story about some unknown drug abusing ‘woman ‘ pumping out babies with no control and then having them dumped on the taxpayer ( care ) thus sustaining the underclass . …boom

      tsk tsk taffman : you should know by now:

      Anything a bit too warm – global warming
      Anything else – climate change.

      Even if the same drought/heatwave etc has been happening for thousands of years.

      Nothing is allowed to be the Earths natural cycle because then there’s no money to be made out of it or virtues to be signalled.

      I would be willing to buy in to man-made effects contributing to it (but not necessarily causing it) if only they didn’t include so much hyperbole that I can’t take anything they say seriously. Such as Greta saying she can actually see CO2 rising from rubbish dumps and everyone on the bandwagon ignoring that bit.

  17. Jeff says:

    I looked out the window this morning and saw my little garden smothered in a blanket of snow. Everything, even the dreariest thing, was transformed. The muddy lawn, the dingy little shed, even my old yard broom leaning against the fence. Everything looked beautiful…

    I think most of us feel this way about a fall of snow, just so long as it doesn’t linger too long…

    However, not everyone is so keen on it. Former Labour MP and climate fanatic, Stephen Pound, was on the Jacob Rees Mogg show (GB News) last night. The old boy looked panic stricken.

    He told us it was another sign of the climate catastrophe we’re all facing. “We’re doomed”…”It’s not natural”… he wailed. He sounded almost hysterical, poor old sod…

    The thing is these climate nutters look for any sign of impending horror in the heavens. They’re like the bloody Druids. Give him a while and he’ll be sacrificing virgins at Stonehenge.

    Getting back to common-sense, what we do know is that the planet has got a lot greener in the last 20 years or so. Some reckon it’s about a 15% increase in green areas. This is totally at odds with what the greenies said would happen. We were told to expect more deserts. More arid areas. Not happened.

    Also, winters were going to be mild and damp. Well, certainly this one hasn’t been. It’s been bloody chilly and dry. Most of my reliable winter crops, that I always grow successfully, were wiped out by the cold spell we had in December and everything it at least three weeks late in flowering.

    You know, before our intellectual leaders decided to turn us all into latter day, planet worshipping pagans, we had a phrase that perfectly described what we’re experiencing at the moment. I’m struggling to think what it is.

    Oh yes…got it…

    The weather…

    A country has the right to decide who enters it , for how long and what their behaviour should be .
    This should supersede all treaties , moral obligations or human rights .
    Anyone who lies to gain admission to a country cannot be given the right to stay and move freely around that country .
    A country has a duty to thoroughly vet anyone who enters it via irregular channels .
    A country has the right and duty to incarcerate any alien who enters it illegally and cannot be expelled immediately .
    No alien can partake in political activities .
    Any alien who commits a crime or consorts with criminals must be deported .

    The above , besides being common sense , is very humane .
    It makes a genuine foreigner fleeing persecution a person of integrity because he has standards .
    you could lend money to a foreigner who has high standards because he/she doesnt want to fall from grace and have to leave the country .
    The genuine ones would benefit , the crooks, chancers and idlers would be gone .

      The USA take this v seriously. I lived there on a spousal work visa for a while. At airports you still have to enter via the often long tourist queue, be grilled by an armed immigration officer, and have your fingerprints recorded and your photo taken. Every time. One time I was travelling alone and I was pulled up and escorted to a remote room for transgressors because I didn’t have the ORIGINAL document confirming my partners eligibility to work.
      Meanwhile, thousands cross the southern land border without visas, every day. How does that make sense?
      I suppose my point is that the situation is similar to GB and I think it’s intentional.

    Looking for the weather bulletin on the BBC weather pages of the webshite.

    Yet the Scottish forecast version is just 2 hours old.

    Makes quite a difference when planning one’s day at 8 am.

    Clearly in BBC land all people are equal. But the Scots are just a little bit more equal than others. Or just get more resources per viewer.

    The bbbc are so very predictable.

    This morning, after the charity person gave her views on the latest channel happenings (with no interruptions or counter views) we had a bbbc politics person giving us an explanation of Braverman’s measures to stop the boats.

    When commenting on Braverman the words we heard were “She ADMITTED” or when commenting on the deal words like ISOLATED were used.
    When coming from the bbbc’s side it used words like PROFOUND when describing the unhcr comments.

    It was like this all the way through.
    So, no surprise at all I suppose.


    • Fedup2 says:

      The sheer dumbness of the exchange between katee razzle and comrade Robinson was pretty instructive in their belief that they do not ‘give away ‘their personal politics to the punter .
      It was easy to explain that linaker was free to spout whatever he wants because he is a free lancer . Yet again and again he has used the ‘fame ‘ given to him by the BBC to express personal political views – knowing he has a ‘fan ‘ club

      And the BBC has allowed him to repeat this . This giving away its ‘sympathy ‘ for his views . If he used a legal English language word such a nigxxx he’d be gone by lunchtime .

      Yet diving into comparisons between 1930s kraut land and 2023 blue labour britainistan is ‘ okay ‘ – Gary – if arrivals were being sent straight to work camps or worse – there might be a comparison – but being sent to a 4 star hotel with cash and iPhones is not nazi germany .

      Flotsam – between you and me I think the Sun might have more to do with it that punching out CO2 by human kind . Ban the Sun – or ban it at night maybe ….

      There is no justification for this either.

      Were they to read the actual comments they have not yet blocked, the BBC and their sacrificial blonde would twig they are on a very dubious credibility path here.


      • Guest Who says:

        The BBC has rendered many words laughable… to which may now be added ‘investigation’.


        They are pulling the OFCOM cart over the cliff with them.


        • Guest Who says:

          Looked at the latest BBC attempted selected, vague, alluding, sources who say, juvenile scary image hit piece, and it seems Springster has been given a day off… but…

          We contacted Twitter for comment but they have not replied.

          Lead reporting by Kayleen Devlin
          Research and analysis by Kayleen Devlin, Adam Robinson, Olga Robinson, Alistair Coleman, Paul Brown and Shayan Sardarizadeh

          To whom? The entire kindergarten?

      Comment by ‘Phil Space’ on the ConWom article given above [Dickie’s post]:

      “Ofcom is yet another discredited British institution riven with the woke far left agenda. It’s just laughable that they are regulating what we see and hear in a free country. We don’t need another load of hand picked established elites to nanny state what media we use.

      For nearly 3 decades the BBC has been allowed to pump out its biased far left anti-British agenda campaigning for climate change, diversity and inclusion, the bloated welfare state, open doors immigration, republicanism, Scottish independence, continued EU membership, while promoting a decidedly anti-American and anti-Israeli narrative. This far left wing bias has all been well documented in books by previous BBC employees, numerous websites who daily post specific examples of their left wing bias, there have been full scale reports detailing the BBC bias, newspapers have carried story after story of the BBC bias. Meanwhile Ofcom has stood idly by and done nothing about it whatsoever.

      Ofcom is a completely discredited organisation and along with the BBC ought to be closed down. In a free country it has no role, we do not live in North Korea and we don’t need to be told what we can watch, think and believe.”

    We have no snow in south Devon but maybe our schools should close in sympathy with those that are shut because of an inch of snow? The BBC do love their community solidarity. Thoughts and prayers, light a candle and murder a song.


  32. Thoughtful says:

    Wow what a day yesterday in the US with Fed Chair Jerome Powell being cross examined and although he was polite with everyone he appeared to me to favour the Democrat side.

    Elizabeth Warren as usual made a complete ass of herself blaming Powell for an inevitable rise in unemployment and accepting no responsibility for causing the inflation by over spending. Powell should have made her aware of the fact she and her party caused this situation and show every intention of carrying on as they have, making his job even more difficult, and causing more unemployment, but he didn’t.

    Then along come senator Kennedy and it’s like pulling teeth and nailing a jelly to a wall with Powell, however Kennedy is on top of his brief and has all the facts to hand, forcing Powell to admit to certain facts he cannot deny and it’s far worse than Warren made out.

    Historically in bringing down inflation it has taken a rise of 3.6% in unemployment to reduce inflation by 2%. In order to reduce inflation to the target figure of 2% The US unemployment rate is going to have to reach 10.5% !

    Powell admitted interest rates are going to have to rise more than expected for longer than expected, and as a consequence stocks plumetted, and the Dollar rose on the news.

    For us in the UK with an idiot in charge of the BoE inflation will not be tackled and even though this might force the fools hand into raising rates it will need to be forced out of him kicking and screaming. What is left of British industry will be badly affected as will the banking sector and we have no competent people in power to deal with this.

    It will prove to be powerful ammunition for the US Republicans as they seek to curtail the squandering profligacy of Bidens crazed Presidency however.

      I know: immediately bring in a 20MPH rule on all English roads. Ala Drakeford. Bring back the Pony & Trap I say.


  33. Sluff says:

    When is the BBC going to run a feature on a group that is highly interested in the illegal immigrants issue?

    That is the group known as The Taxpayers who have to pay for it all, while existing public services go to rats***.


  34. Zephir says:

    I see the leftist trolls are out in force in the Mail online comments section on the Lineker story banging on about the “right” going on about free speech etc etc

    1) Branding government ministers (or anyone else for that matter) who are doing their primary job of attempting to protect our borders as Nazis is nothing short of hate speech, which I understand is illegal ?

    2) breaking, once again bbc impariality rules, remember the demands for resignations when others from the right in government or other places of employment “break the rules” ?

    so arrest him and sack him please


  35. Zephir says:

    One rule for the foul mouthed, abusive, slanderous, lying far left

    Another rule for the democratically elected government and the rest of the country

    And for Scroblene RE yesterday we can rely on the Kinks:

    “Well, I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
    Why she walked like a woman but talked like a man
    Oh my Lola

    Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
    It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, except for Lola”

    And of course Lou Reid:

    “Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.
    Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
    Plucked her eyebrows on the way
    Shaved her legs and then he was a she”

    Another BBC non reported article. Perhaps Ofcom may want to get involved:

      Councillor Anne Tessier issued a heartfelt apology for mandates at a town council in the small town of West Nipissing, Ontario on January 3, 2023.

  38. Guest Who says:

    On the ongoing topic of a laughable national joke.



  39. Guest Who says:

    Pretty clear the BBC is failing and flailing badly.

    So here is a poll that they will doubtless claim is not the right kind of poll for their bizarre purposes.


    Of course people want to know what is going on, and have it done right, as the establishment pols and media propagandists have gone too far, too often, and trying to cover their tracks by claiming everything is far right or misinformation is no longer cutting it.


  40. StewGreen says:

    11:07am Radio4 The Shamima Begum Story
    “You made some pretty inflammatory statements about the Manchester Arena attack, do regret saying those things ?”

    Shamima “Of course I reget saying it”
    BBC “What do you say to survivors of the attack ?”

    Shamima “I’m so sorry that you went through this
    and I know it F??or it”

    It’s inaudable cos of the loud background brainwashing music used to frame the piece

    See how the BBC questioner feeds her LEADING questions so she can follow the path.

    The prog is like it’s made by a PR team who support her.
    See how those inflammatory statements are NOT quoted and she is not interrogated on them
    at least in the bits I heard.


  41. Fedup2 says:

    Seems like the Muslim authorities in the BBC have decided to get her to the UK ( I won’t say bring her back ) so they are using waves and waves of publicity .

    Just a shame she didn’t end up in pieces the way the other 2 did – but there’s time …

    In which a BBc ‘report’ believes belief by a TNI partner on belief by the guys it trusts.

    But all down to er…. BBc coverage, surely?


  45. Guest Who says:

    Currently festive in the shires, but the nuke may yet come.


    Being the BBC, one cannot help but notice ‘could’ in the second two paras.


    So, there are lies, dman lies, and what the BBC ‘reports’.


  46. Fedup2 says:

    More fun – a soon to be red labour mp is going through a name Change – it’s switching from Eddie Izard to Eddy Izard ( ok it’s really Suzy) …. What effed up country / time ….


  47. StewGreen says:

    The actual Lineker tweet
    It’s free speech same as comments by Clarkson or by Andrew Bridgen , you can compare things, as long as it doesn’t incite violence or is defamatory.
    But hyperbolic comparisons do reflect badly on the person making them
    Clarkson made a joke comparing Meghan to a fictional category
    but when people compare minor things to victims of the Holocaust, that is insulting their memory.
    “oh decimating someones family in the gas chambers is just like stopping economic migrants moving from safe France to the UK”
    ,, No the two actions are a million miles apart
    Just like telling someone to pick up some litter, is no like being a Nazi.



    • StewGreen says:

      The interesting thing is that when the Right side speak
      the left scream “Stop ! it’s inflammatory language”

      Yet when they use “inflammatory language”
      the “It’s OK when we lefties do it” rule applies.


    • Fedup2 says:

      But stew – the ex footballer is making political comments whilst protected by a technical shield which makes him independent of the BBC .
      They – he -cannot have it both ways . If he or anyone else takes money – taxpayers money – from the BBC then his views must be limited or silent. He – they – cannot have it both ways and claim to be ‘neutral ‘ or ‘unbiased ‘…..

      What he really says is what full bbc employees think and no doubt say to each other in their poisonous anti British group think …


      • StewGreen says:

        Fed I don’t agree
        in the real world everyone has opinions
        and have a right to free speech
        Public service broadcasters air Monbiot, James O’Brien, Packham
        and should not exclude Steyn or Farage or Tommy etc.
        What is unfair
        #1 the system excludes people from one side and not the other
        #2 When the network claims their news is IMPARTIAL yet allows partisanship within the news report
        I can watch Steyn doing partisan news one way and O’Brien do it the other.

        Anonymous accounts are good cos a BBC news reporter can speak freely from behind one yet not be connected openly to the BBC
        but Harrabin used his BBC platform and an account in his own name to push his POLITICS
        That is having your cake and eating it

        Liniker is not a news reporter, and is not pretending to be impartial.


        • Fedup2 says:

          But the BBC is – and he takes public money from them – which must entail a limit on what he says . He can always leave them and then be free …

    Now, this is a very important issue for me……..

    Once the migrants have vacated their hotel rooms (hopefully before I die), then I hope the owners will be investing in NEW MATTRESSES AND PILLOWS.

    A small point in the greater scheme of things, but the thought of spending a night or 10 on a mattress and resting my head on pillows used by …………… makes my stomach turn.
