    Is Chicago twinned with London?


    • StewGreen says:

      A bolshy leftwing mayor was getting an easy time from most media
      but one reporter kept asking difficult questions.
      Crime rose, she lost re-election
      Then at the final session the public are allowed to ask questions
      so that reporter got the microphone as a member of the public
      “shame on you, you closed down the city, pack your suitcase and get the hell out”

        I hope he get his book finished soon, as the lefties will be all over his research like a rash if they can find any ways to censor it.

        Who in the UK has the balls to publically say that to the bloke who’s done exactly the same to London?

        … wait, 3 years earlier Sadiq Khan spoke at the Chicken Cottage Awards in 2012 for more Halal and Chicken Cottage …

        “Here’s the beautiful thing … these are British products, selling Islamic Products, selling Halal Products (Halal – throat cut whilst conscious, slaughtered by Muslim only employee, incantation to animal from a Koran by Muslim only).

        – Mayor in charge of 7000+ pubs of London with moral conflict with his religion?
        – Mayor in charge of betting shops of London with moral conflict with his religion?
        – Mayor promises fewer chicken shops (2017) but was promoting more Halal chicken production (2012)!

        Very odd that Sadiq Khan’s London Manifesto 2016 does not mention voting for him because of his Islamic Faith?

    Nigel Farage was at Scampton today , didn’t realise the RAF moved out last year , Local Council have plans for a £300 Million investment in the base …..Apparently on Monday the Home Office announced it plans to fill it with “Cuddly Migrants “……Disgusting and spits in the face of this once Great Britain and our History…..Guy Gibson and his Labrador would be devastated !
    This week marks the 80th anniversary of 617 Squadron….ironic or what


    • StewGreen says:

      Both BBC and ITV local newsPR shows had reporters live from Scampton
      However the Farage show was a grade above
      He had both the a segment with the local business project leader
      and a live segment with the local MP.
      And a segment from the Dambusters pub.

        I appreciate your bravery in watching BBC news its something that I can’t stomach anymore . Thankfully stopped paying for their Bias a while ago .

    It would appear our ludicrous government have decided to postpone the bidding for the Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) which would provide more generating capacity.

    This means a 2030 move to exclusively electric vehicles only and all new builds on heat pumps is a fantasy, and if it doesn’t stop then the lights will certainly go out.


    • Loobyloo says:


      Maybe the uk govt can delay this by withholding regulatory approval..


    • atlas_shrugged says:


      Thanks for the heads up. The fact our gov is postponing SMRs is lunacy.

      £2.3B for something that is as safe as houses with an 18 months lead time and that can be placed in many nucleur sites that already have planning permission and a willing local population who would like to work there with SMRs.

      We are governed by absolute cretins – many of them from Oxbridge universities. I know these people have a track record for working with the Russians or fiddling with children but can they not do something sensible, at least *once*?


    • G says:


      It’s all a fantasy on the road to starvation as designed into the Grand Plan. After all, history is replete with examples of where Communism led the people to death via starvation. Millions upon millions and the best thing is, history always repeats itself.

      Fact is, less population, less need for SMR’s. Or indeed food.


  5. Fedup2 says:

    Comrade Roger Harrabin writes in The Guardian about BBC bias —-enjoy

    Criticism ebbs and flows at the BBC, and then suddenly engulfs the corporation in waves. It happened with the Gary Lineker controversy, which prompted a standoff, a mutiny and yet another bout of BBC bashing over impartiality. Typically the hardest kicks have come from figures on the political right, complaining that the BBC is leftwing.

    Thirty-five years ago, when I joined the corporation, they would have had a much stronger case. Back then, the default framing for much of the news agenda was indeed set by the Guardian: there was no shame in spouting what may have been described as Guardianesque views at the morning meeting of the World at One or the PM programme.

    Rightwingers were regarded as a curiosity; the BBC found it hard to recruit them. Still, even then, a few influential Tory supporters strode the corridors of Broadcasting House. I remember, on the verge of an election, one Conservative-leaning editor boosted the incumbent government by broadcasting a ludicrously optimistic economic forecast. It was an outrageous moment of scheduling, and when the Tories were re-elected he openly triumphed: “We did it!”

    But if the predominant BBC bias in those days was inarguably anti-Conservative, there was later a massive shift, partly prompted by the arrival in 2001 of a new business editor, Jeff Randall – previously of the Sunday Telegraph. He judged (rightly) that BBC news coverage was anti-business, and he set about changing attitudes and agendas, supported by senior managers.

    The message percolated. One senior executive on the Today programme, for instance, warned his team that on the way in from home, his reading of choice was the Telegraph. There was cause and effect: a right-wards shift in news values, framing and priorities. It was a correction that was needed, and successful – so now it’s time for the attacks to be toned down.

    Take Brexit, when both sides argued that the BBC was against them. I felt the BBC appeared to be pro-Brexit. It regularly brandished the term “Brexiteers” – with a buccaneering suffix also applying to musketeers and grenadiers. “Brexiters” would have been more neutral.
    The Today programme’s business editor was told, perfectly reasonably, to ensure that half the interviewees in the business slots were pro-Brexit. When he replied that only a handful of business leaders favoured leaving the EU, the overall Today editor was told to make up for the deficit by featuring extra Brexiters in the main body of the programme. That may have had a significant effect. Repeated appearances by a small group of anti-EU business voices may well have helped the audience to know and trust them.

    And still the pressure from the right continues, partly to achieve ideological compliance, but also via complaints designed to keep pressure on the organisation, a long favoured tactic. A few years back, one noted Conservative influencer was in a debate with a leftwing broadcaster on The World Tonight. The opponent was shocked at the Tory’s full-frontal assault on BBC impartiality. “You don’t really think all that, do you?” the broadcaster asked as they left the studio. “No,” replied the Tory, “but you’ve got to keep these buggers on their toes.”

    Complaining, even overcomplaining, often works, as a small band of climate-denier activists have proved over the years with their incessant complaints to the BBC. These attacks through the editorial complaints unit devour editorial time, so some editors prefer to appease the complainant by altering an online story, perhaps, rather than standing firm and facing possible rebuke from the unit.

    The BBC, in fact, is generally susceptible to bullying through attrition. In a 2011 report, I mentioned the vast carbon emissions caused by HS2. An editor told me to tone it down. I complied, but he insisted that my revised version was still not neutral enough. The firm responsible for HS2 (with its army of PRs) always complained, he said – and he simply didn’t have the time to deal with it.

    Then there’s the issue of interviewee choice. It’s relatively easy to seize air time if you’re on a Conservative thinktank, but people on the left of Labour are often treated with caution or distain. The Guardian’s George Monbiot, one of the world’s leading green leftwing thinkers, tells me he’s been on Radio 4 just a handful of times in a decade. By contrast, his nemesis Minette Batters from the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) is given frequent air time as if she is an independent analyst. I was once asked not to say in a script that the acronym NFU stands for the farmers’ union. No reason was given.

    The BBC is certainly nervous of being described as “Guardianista”. I argued before leaving the organisation that we should use other terms to refer to “climate change”, such as “global heating” and the “climate crisis”. I was told that as the Guardian had adopted this vocabulary, the BBC couldn’t be seen to be following their lead.

    The truth is that BBC staff overwhelmingly strive for political impartiality. Over several years, I infuriated my colleagues on the science desk by regularly including comments from Nigel Lawson’s Global Warming Policy Forum in my online stories – until it had been proved wrong on so many issues.

    The Gary Lineker row isn’t about impartiality – it’s just the latest attempt to discredit leftish decency | Zoe Williams

    More recently, the corporation’s green coverage has come under fire from the other direction, with the radical campaigners Extinction Rebellion accusing it of failing to accord the planetary crisis its proper prominence. They worry about the effect of outside forces on the coverage, but the science team’s biggest challenge is much more mundane. The reason the climate crisis doesn’t lead the TV news every night is because, while it is hugely important, it’s not new.

    Former colleagues say there is still an acknowledgment of the seriousness of the issue, and an effort to promote environmental stories such as today’s ominous assessment report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But it’s hard to be forever creative enough for the stories to have the impact they deserve.


    I left the corporation last July, and in my post-BBC role as a speaker/facilitator on the environment I was asked at a recent conference whether I thought Labour would be better than the Conservatives on the climate agenda. As I opened my mouth to answer, I sensed the familiar BBC impartiality filter descending. Then I remembered that it no longer applies. “Yes,” I said. “Labour will almost certainly be better than Tories on climate – Ed Miliband committed himself to the low-carbon economy years ago.”

    I felt a physical sensation of relief at being able after decades to give an unambiguous political answer. Having left the BBC, I could tell that simple, obvious truth.ENDS

    The delusion of the guardian commentators after the above piece is quite something . Some even won’t accept the term ‘left wing ‘ and ask for examples .

    Where would one start / stop – I never comment other that here – but example?
    Trump / Biden ……


    • JohnC says:

      I just had a look at the Guardian arse-cheek and read some of the comments.

      It’s simply amazing : they all actually think the BBC is right-wing, pro-conservative biased !!!. I could not believe some of the blinkered left-wing rubbish they were writing. And their main topic is still how Brexit was won on lies. I was expecting a bit of Lefty spite but the extent shocked me. The fact we only got a referendum because of the surge in support for UKIP forced it to be an election promise is lost on them.

      And they say it was right for the ‘unbiased BBC’ to support remain because that was the official government position !!!. Their hypocrisy is off the scale.

      I came away with the awful realisation of just how truly divided the UK – and the USA – has become. This is the stuff civil wars are made from.


      • Fedup2 says:

        As I dip sampled some of those comments I wondered how those imbeciles who react if they read the evidence on this site . How they can claim ‘institutional right wing bias ‘ is beyond me.
        They desperately seize on individuals to make a weak case and ignore the 24 hour daily torrent of anti right propaganda . I bet they even see the current blue labour mob as a Conservative one …..

        Maybe it’s just a result of a crap lefty education system … glad I my formal education was of a more conservative Christian outlook ( we didn’t ‘do’ race or queers )


        • JohnC says:

          I think what is happening is that ‘group think’ is making stupid people think they are much more intelligent than they really are. And that is very, very dangerous because they have the confidence to make big decisions but they don’t have the wit or real world experience to doubt themselves which someone doing that must have.


          • Fedup2 says:

            Yes good point . In my careers I have always sniffed out ‘group think ‘ – and even more difficult – people or group working on assumptions which may well be correct – sometimes with huge consequences in terms of cost and effort .

            People who challenge group think – or the faulty assumption question – tend not to be very popular – I know many times I wasn’t …..

            The Group Think is the BBC is just so so powerful – and the assumptions are also damaging to our country in the short and long terms- which is one reason I’d like to see it gone …


        • Greencoat says:

          ‘institutional right wing bias ‘
          To a lefty that means any organisation not following – or even mildly questioning – the Cultural Marxist agenda.


      • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

        I would be quite happy not to live in socialist Scotland and move to a place of like minded people – but where? the whole planet is soiled.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I had not realised that the BBC was run by a righ wing clique. I thank Comrade Harrabin for opening my eyes. I now see that the BBC is in the control of the running dogs of right wing hegemony.

      On the other hand, I did hear Comrade Jane Hill use the term “climate crisis” on the Six O’Clock News last night.

      Who am I to believe, Comrade Harrabin or my lying ears?

    Watching a program on the Black Death…. Everything going swimmingly until one of the boffins announced that the population at the time had already suffered another even bigger apocalypse previously due to….. yes you guessed it … bloody mediaeval climate change…..

    Cue very dark sky graphics, sombre music etc. etc,

    It must be down to all the candles they burned at the time as they had no cars, airplanes, boats, electric fires, gas stoves,…. Etc.etc. In fact they had bloody nothing!

    These professional twats have a one track mind and just won’t leave the lying behind will they as long as it ends with us all living in caves and eating bugs.

      Medieval climate change lol, its only 6.30am, but good to start the day with a laugh


      • Fedup2 says:

        I bet there was a loon teenage scandanavian girl screeching about the world ending unless the number of candles used was reduced .

        She was replaced by a prettier girl from Arc who went for the religious angle

        All the soothsayers issued a report saying continued candle use would lead to climate change . Candles need to be taxed more and better candles developed . Candle factories need to be closed – people should live in the dark during the winter to save the planet ….

        ..anyone refusing to accept that candles are destroying the climate is a witch ….


        • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

          Presumably they meant the cooler weather and bad storms after about 1250, when I think the Medieval Warm Period ended.

          There were several storms and tidal surges in the North Sea area and shallower seas south of there (affecting e.g East Anglia, the Low Countries) in 1286-7, the 1350s and especially 1362. The Black Death was 1348-9. These storms have been linked to longer-term changed weather patterns post 1250.

          The deception, if there was one, was to leave hanging the idea that humans are responsible for climate change now. I didn’t see the C4 prog’ but I’m pretty sure no serious student of the weather events of 1250-1400 would claim that tiny numbers of humans had anything to do with it.

      Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has called for jihadis to “wake up” and target British troops, following Prince Harry’s admission that he had killed 25 members of the Taliban.

    Big news at the BBC:

    Spotify: Bollywood songs removed from music app

    ‘Imagine loading up your favourite playlist, the one you spent hours carefully putting together, only to find half of the songs had gone.

    If you’re a Bollywood fan with a Spotify account, it’s a situation you might not need to picture.’

    I imagine a lot of you at the BBC are very upset about that Manish Pandey.

    But I would suspect it only affects a very, very small percentage of the people who were forced to fund you to write it. Hardly warrants a place on the front page to use the BBC to pressure Spotify to restore tham.


    Look at the example which has gone. I miss it already.

    “Black officers are 81% more likely to be in the misconduct system than white colleagues, the report adds”

    Any reason for black officers in the misconduct system then? Maybe a reason, or should we change the “misconduct system” to suite certain people, just like stop and search

    Utterly ridiculous


  12. Fedup2 says:

    The solution

    The new commissioner ( who was in the met for 7 years before retiring and coming back again )- he even got knighted for being responsible for helping destroy it

    Breaking up the Met – same people – higher cost – same self serving defensive mindset .

    Lots of race / ex plod / politicians jumping on bandwagons – including the Emir of londonistan

    The chippy coloured folk / queers / Muslims are gonna have a field day courtesy of the BBC …

    .. and the firearms unit might down guns ….

    Londonistan is a third world dump – maybe it gets the plod it deserves …


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      The Met needs an additional force:

      The Pink brigade:

      Wimmin welcome – no need to pass the shield test.
      No man is allowed to be employed unless he is both gay and black.
      Such a ‘man’ must be given employment preference over other wimmin.
      The uniform to be pink.
      Use a different phone number to summon the pink police.

      Then let people choose who they want to call.

    I told the BBC a long time ago I didn`t need a TV licence.
    I told them I only watched downloads.
    They don`t hassle me anymore.


    • Doublethinker says:

      I am the proud recipient of twenty four letters from my pen pals at the BBC , all demanding in one form or another that I pay them the Licence Fee. Sadly they didn’t send me a Christmas card . I know that they have a form that you can fill in telling them that you don’t watch or record live TV and they stop bothering you for a couple of years. But there is no legal obligation on us to communicate with them so I much prefer to let them spend their time and money chasing me .
      I did once get a visit from one of their enforcement officers . I told him I didn’t watch or record live tv and shut the door. He hung about for a few minutes and then left . That was last summer and so far no more visits.


      • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

        I know someone who took the route of telling the TVLA that she no longer required a Licence. She wanted to save money, rather than refuse to fund the BBC, but anyway … They wrote back and said they would note this and be back in touch in a couple of years, to check that no Licence was required. I believe they were as good as their word.

        At some point, the ex-Telly Tax payer started looking at stuff on i-Player, perhaps ignorant that the law had changed (2016?) and that you now needed to pay the telly tax to use i-Player and not just for watching/recording from live. The TVLA contacted her to say they had noticed that she’d been watching things on i-Player (presumably deduced from her IP address if watching on a laptop, or maybe from the need to ‘subscribe’ to i-Player in some form now, “to get a better service”) and invited her to start paying again, which she did.

        Rather silly by her really; but if you do want to use i-Player, then stay within the law and pay your £159 (soon to rise!) I don’t and I don’t, which is perfectly legal.

    Billionaire Bill Gates talks to Amol Rajan about wealth, conspiracy theories and recent controversies. They visit a remote region outside Nairobi in Kenya, where Gates supports local farms and hospitals through his charitable foundation for a rare, in-depth interview with the tech entrepreneur.

    Gates has spent much of his life being the richest man on earth, excelling at school, founding Microsoft and helping to realise his vision of having a computer on every desk in every home. His public image has changed over the years, from geek to business titan and philanthropist. In recent years he’s become the subject of endless conspiracy theories and has attracted unfavourable headlines on the subject of his divorce and his association with Jeffrey Epstein. In this challenging and personal interview, Rajan tackles these issues head on, talking to Gates about his early success, his wealth, how he uses it now and the controversies that have arisen over the years. In this unusually candid interview Gates is often revealing in his responses.

    SHEEP Essential facts you don’t really need to know edition

    You join us on a morning when the BBC, together with most of our liberal press, are most anxious to tell us the police aren’t PC enough to their taste: Met Police: Women and children failed by ‘boys’ club’, review finds (BBC); Met police is ‘racist sexist and broken’… review finds (Telegraph) – but what about the gays? Devastating report says Met is ‘institutionally racist, corrupt, misogynistic and homophobic’ (Daily Mail) – well, that’s the full set, the royal flush.

    More to the point: ‘Unacceptable and unsustainable’: Police watchdog condemns low burglary and theft clear-up rates. Less than 7% of domestic burglaries end in the offender being charged, while for theft it’s 4% and only one percent for car theft, according to Home Office figures. (Sky News, August 2022)

    It’s not a new problem, apparently

    You can’t trust the specials
    like the old-time coppers
    when you can’t
    find your way home
    [Don’t Dilly Dally (My Old Man Said Follow The Van) 1919]

    Women within the force were “traded like cattle” and moved to different units depending on which male officers found them attractive (Times) – ladies, I trust you know how to hit back at the cops: Is it REALLY legal for a pregnant woman to have a wee in a policeman’s helmet? (Nottinghamshire Live – supporting Ukraine with a blue and yellow heart at the masthead)

    Sadly, a recent Guardian article’s under the line comment section pours cold water on that cherished legend: The urine would damage the lining of the helmet and so the offence would be aiding and abetting the act of defacing government property. Jack Hill, St Albans, UK

    Frankly, you’d be lucky to find a constable wearing a proper uniform helmet these days. They seem to prefer baseball caps. It’s only a matter of time before they start wearing them backwards – but I digress, as the police degenerate.

    Mr AsI finds it a tad paradoxical that the very lefties who perpetually belly ache and moan with inquiries and reports about the corruption and failings within the public sector – then advocate for ever more expansion of that very same public sector. More watchdogs, more qangos, more ombudsmen…

    Casey’s review, published today, says the Metropolitan Police needs independent oversight and specialists appointed from outside to help overhaul it… (Times) – Labour’s Mayor Khan gets a free pass?

    The commissioner is accountable to the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, which is headed by the mayor of London and run by the by deputy mayor for policing and crime (Institute for Government)

    We turn to the red tops to tell us something other than the Left-wing narrative du jour…

    Britain’s gone to pot (The Sun) – that’s for sure…

    However, the Sun is referring to pot holes: Half of UK roads crumbling

    The Daily Star is somewhat of a parody of the mainstream and we do rather enjoy a wry smile at the expense of our otherwise everso earnest media: Feathered scumbags are at it again… 48% of Brits now victims of seagulls… chips and ice creams are under threat – ice creams… in this weather? But one does admire that random percentage statistic thrown in there for good measure – watch out FT Datawatch, the Star is onto your little games.

    Defensive and waffling doesn’t make it – he is at the point of a huge level of management – all carefully selected to screw things up and worry about their careers .

    Naturally meesh concentrates on the coloureds and the queers and wimmin . White blokes can swing it seems – and they are a reducing population in londonistan – except for Easter Europeans of course .

    Rowley to hand back is wrongly awarded knighthood ? No

    Training plod to fight crime and keep streets safe?

    Buying fridges that work so that samples from rapes and other crimes can be safety stored and preserved .

    Now – back in the day – there was a lot of stuff about ‘canteen culture ‘being The Big Enemy . But is seems that the Met simply got rid of canteens – so that culture went right ?

    So far we haven’t heard from the emir of londonistan – he has been responsible for overseeing the Met for …. 8? Years – where is is accountability ? The BBC seems not to want to go for him ….
    …… and I wonder where previous commissioners are – the likes of Miss Dick …. Still counting the severance money I guess ….
    Meanwhile as a Londoner – paying through rising council tax – what do I get ?

    Whatever one’s views on the Union*, Kate Hoey was right to tell JRM on GBN last night that nobody who cares for the Union would support Rishi’s so-called ‘Windsor Framework.’ She correctly pointed out that Labour said they would support it even before reading it.
    As facts4eu.org observes: quite how Labour, the LibDems, the SNP and the Green MP can say they will vote in favour before they have even seen the documents which define the deal is a question they will have to answer to in the court of public opinion.
    I don’t think Reform UK made enough of this point during their not-so-bg announcement yesterday.

    The far Left joke report by Dame Louise Casey a career hand wringer, liberal and darling of the Tory Left.

    You can read all about just how far Left she is here and make your own minds up:


    As a civil servant she should be reasonably intelligent, but alas people like this blind themselves to reality, fact, and what should be easily forseable consequences, to produce fashionable outrage, and victim identifying reports which are not supportable by real fact and lack support by way of provable fact.

    Other facts which are inconvenient are simply ignored.

    We have seen that interference and manipulation by the Chinese Communist Party in Marxist Universities in the USA has been welcomed and adopted by the far Left Tory party as they move to establish a Marxist state here in the UK.

    A large part of that has been an undermining of law and order with the Democrat cities now in states of complete anarchy and even the liberal loons who elected the Marxist destroyers not prepared to put up with the chaos and lawlessness they have wrought upon them, to this end Tory hero Chesa Boudin was removed from his position as DA.

    Defund the Police was a cry of the Left in America, here it is different and the Far Left Tories have taken a more subtle approach, by appointing a Left Wing activist to produce a report they can use to destroy the Police they believe it will enable them to do so behind a shield of virtue which anyone who challenges them can be dismissed as the tired old trope “far Right” which happens to be 95% of the population.

    Even though America is no longer a democracy Britain is even less of one and we can expect the Police to become even more politicised and more like the Gestapo than they were previously, all with the blessing of the Tory party.

    This is a very dangerous report, no one should see it as anything other than.

      I haven’t read it all yet – it might be my weekend reading – but I notice the looseness of the language and reliance on anecdote .
      For instance the ‘exhibits fridge ‘ one which the msm has seized on as evidence of a disfunctional organisation .

      Yet I understand that everyone in the organisation has access to a computer and can send messages to the boss – and I know from big organisations this is used as evidential audit trail to prove that a problem was reported and a solution delivered – passing on the responsibility .

      So what happened with the exhibits fridge ? We are not told . This – to me – is just sloppy in terms of the report and isn’t fully explained . Yet the st Casey is beyond criticism …..

      I saw the wiki early to day and clearly she is a quango / charity junkie – so ideal for blue labour to use for a hatchet job . The Met hasn’t done itself any favours recruiting dross and dropping standards – but I’m sure those who made those decisions years ago are now promoted ….

      … there doesn’t seem to be any acceptance of personal blame either – just a sort of ‘institutional ‘ blame which is worth zip to taxpayers and those whom the met is meant to protect .

    US urges Xi to press Putin over ‘war crimes’ in Ukraine

    ‘John Kirby said seeking a ceasefire would not be enough.

    “We hope that President Xi will press President Putin to cease bombing Ukrainian cities, hospitals and schools, to halt the war crimes and atrocities and to withdraw his troops,” he said.

    That’s more like a North Korean press statement. It’s embarassing.

    “But we are concerned that instead China will reiterate calls for a ceasefire that leaves Russian forces inside Ukraine’s sovereign territory and any ceasefire that does not address the removal of Russian forces from Ukraine would effectively ratify Russia’s illegal conquests.”

    Excuse me ?. Isn’t it up to Ukraine to make such statements ?. If anyone doubts that it is the USA orchestrating this war, this intervention for something which supposedly has nothing to do with them proves it beyond doubt.

    The Americans are not even pretending any more. Because they have people like the BBC on their side who are leading us all into WW3. Isn’t amazing how all the Leftist opposition to war and ‘how we should all love each other’ can be tossed aside so quickly. The really are complete hypocrites. They are baying for blood now.

    This is all to simply sabotage the talks because the USA (and us hanging on like tag-nuts) are determined to bring Putin down (and collapse Russia as well if they can). Saying there will be no talks until Russia totally pulls out of Ukraine is warmongering in the extreme. They know it will never happen.

    And – of course – copied directly to you by someone not at all sure what they are writing about:

      You are not understanding this war at all, because it has little to do with Ukraine, and everything to do with utter mafia style corruption in the US Democrat party.

      50% of the aid to Ukraine has gone missing, believed laundered in one of the most corrupt countries in Europe back to political elites in the West.
      Their primary objective in all of this is to keep the war going, and thus the cash flowing as long as is possible, and therefore any talk of a ceasefire is going to be opposed.

      Yes it’s an incredibly dangerous thing to do, but they are blinded by the money.

      Many fools who have previously criticised unemployment benefit and then found themselves having to avail themselves of it have realised what a ridiculous amount it is.

      It’s just £77 per week. If you are paying child support they will take £10 of it, and if you have any fines or debts you will have an additional £10 removed because this lunatic government says you can survive and pay all your taxes and bills on £57 per week!

      Worse than that if some capricous asshole at the benefits agency doesn’t like you then they will stop it completely for a minimum of 3 months leaving you with absolutely nothing to live on. Only if you are White of course, they don’t do it to the special people.

      And you will have to pay council tax as well from that ridicuous amount, plus if you have a partner your benefits will fall to nothing after 6 months.

      Thats why so many refuse to work and have a child, which gets them a livable amount and decent accomodation provided.

    Let’s say you were part of a Marxist organisation in the UK (or resident elsewhere), dedicated to bringing the UK to its knees so that you can build your Communist Utopia from the bottom up. You’d start by inserting your agents in all influential positions in politics, education et al. You would then apply the Marxist doctrine of, ‘Critical Theory’. This doctrine is simply being critical of everything and everybody. A good daily example of Critical Theory at work, is the BBC.
    Then you would consider what would be guaranteed to rub / wind up the general population in an attempt to create mayhem. Essentially you’d set out to de-stable a fairly honest, overall law abiding and compliant population and turn it hostile so you could blame them for their hostility. Thinks? What should we put in the midst of all this relative stability? You would decide upon many other different races being introduced in to the ‘pot’ (guaranteed to wind up most) and in particular, one who is notorious for criminality, including murder, drug running and guaranteed to be mostly all non-compliant with the laws and customs. Alternatives exist in races which know no sexual constraints when it comes to women and girls. Then, when the police are called in to deal with the explosions in crime you caused, your ‘agent imports’ would simply and vociferously condemn the police. Keep up the pressure until calls are made to tackle the alleged ‘problems’ with the police. The handmaiden BBC, (having predominantly become a Marxist organisation decades ago) will be instrumental in spreading the glad tidings about the bad Police.
    When calls for inquiries into the Police Force emerge, you need to hire a person from the pool of sympathiser’s available to you, to head the inquiry. Make sure you hire a person of status, like a Baroness who you would hope had the respect of the population. You can sift through the background of the person selected to ensure they possessed the right experience and qualifications.

    Voila! Baroness Casey! Degree in History…………..

    Ex. ‘Shelter’, ex ‘Victims Commissioner’, ex Chair of the Institute of Global Homelessness. and many more positions which certainly nail Baroness Casey’s colours to the mast.

    “Onward and Upward”.

    I am not defending the police. But if the public are in the main anti (“Johnny”) foreigner then the police’ views and actions will be a broad example of those they represent.

    All good fun.

Its author, one of the world’s top scholars on Ukraine-related issues, had marshaled overwhelming evidence to conclude Maidan protesters were killed by pro-coup snipers.
      The massacre by snipers of anti-government activists and police officers in Kiev’s Maidan Square in late February 2014 was a defining moment in the US-orchestrated overthrow of Ukraine’s elected government. The death of 70 protesters triggered an avalanche of international outrage that made President Viktor Yanukovych’s downfall a fait accompli. Yet today these killings remain unsolved.

      Enter Ivan Katchanovski, a Ukrainian-Canadian political scientist at the University of Ottawa. For years, he marshaled overwhelming evidence demonstrating that the snipers were not affiliated with Yanukovych’s government, but pro-Maidan operatives firing from protester-occupied buildings.”

    BBC Radio 4 news at 7 pm; a necessarily abbreviated bulletin of two to three minutes in length.

    There was the story about the sexist/racist/homophobic Met Police as revealed by Dame Louise Casey’s report. The newsreader quoted Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s reaction to the findings, as well as (IIRC) that of Mark Rowley, the man who took over from Cressida Dick.

    When it came to a reaction from Prime Minister-in-waiting Sir Keir Starmer, we were allowed to hear a (relatively) long clip of him actually speaking. Why might that be?

    It might be nothing, of course, but I and one or two others on here have noticed how we sometimes need to rely on the BBC to quote/summarize what the actual (Tory) Minister has said, whereas the reply from, say, the Shadow Minister Rachel Reeves or Sir Keir himself, is given in sound form. Is this to make Labour sound more present and authentic or am I just a bit paranoid?

    UK to supply depleted Uranium weapons to Ukraine to use against the Russians. This is the big news but hardly a mention. We are being controlled by US, I’m sure we wouldn’t take this step without the US giving the order. The retaliation by Russia is uncertain and can only be guessed by the West and more importantly will it be UK specific? Escalation?
    Is this because Ukraine are losing the war and some in Ukraine are willing to go to the table with Russia – maybe something that the US do not want to happen? I don’t have the answers but I do know that bringing Uranium into the conflict is a giant and dangerous step and is deserving of front page news.


    • JohnC says:

      This is what is so dangerous : whenever anyone starts talking about peace, the USA escalate the conflict to stop them. Usually by giving some weapon with new/longer range capability – which the Russians respond to with a new wave of cruise missile attacks and peace is once again off the table.

      What has amazed me most about this war is how the USA, the UK and the MSM are not interested in how many people are being killed or what suffering is caused by what we are doing to keep this war going. All they care about is blaming Russia for everything – and using the most underhand, emotional tricks to do it. The thousands of men being shot/blown to bits don’t even get mentioned now. The BBC’s ‘War in Ukraine’ page is a complete joke which would have made Goebbels proud.

      The latest HYS on there is fanatical. There is no reason or intelligent debate at all. It’s a mob baying for blood with statements a 12 year old might write. Many are very obviously part of a internet activist group : their language isn’t native English. I wonder if Marianna might take a look to check the claims …

      The Nord stream attack should have been utterly unacceptable to the ‘humanitarians’ and denounced as a ‘war crime’ as it was a deliberate attack aimed to make civilians suffer and die. Yet the story was dropped immediately because it is obvious that the USA did it (probably helped by us in some way). I would really like to know what Germany thinks about that – but of course they cannot say.

      We are not the good guys in this war. There are no good guys. Just the usual mass-murder by politicians on both sides looking towards future world order.
