    Bill Gates: AI is most important tech advance in decades

      Governments like Bill too — leader of the HoC in a joint speech with Gates (who also wrote the foreword to her book “Greater: Britain After the Storm”):

      “… our global food system is failing us […] The threats to our food supplies from droughts, floods and other climate shocks are increasing. Emerging food crop and infectious livestock diseases threaten human, animal and plant health globally. Migration and conflict magnify the challenges for our humanitarian system […] Science and technology has a vital role to play in meeting these global threats, and can transform development challenges into opportunities.”

    Under the American Medicare program, doctors are reimbursed at a higher rate if they administer more expensive medications to treat a condition. This creates an incentive for the physician to prescribe a more expensive drug when a less expensive one might do.


    The FASTER Act of 2021 in the U.S. was intended to aid those with an allergy to sesame in avoiding the substance by ensuring foods which contain it are labelled, however the stringent requirements around preventing cross-contamination made it simpler and less expensive for many companies to instead add sesame to their products and label it as an ingredient, decreasing the number of sesame-free products available and creating the risk of an allergic reaction occurring from previously safe foods.[45]

    Hey what about that – comrade Martine Croxhall – an admitted red labour supporter – after forced discipline by the BBC – is now chairing bbc news and the Harmon kangaroo court …..

    I’d have thought comrade Croxhall was so discredited by her on screen ‘glee’ that she could no longer represent the BBC …being unable to hide her political view at the door of the studio –
    But I forgot – it’s the Far Left very anti Johnson BBC …..

      Bacha Bazi – severe child abuse disguised as an Afghani custom
      Posted on September 13, 2022 Jovana AndelkovicPosted in Children’s Rights, Explotation, Human Rights, violence
      Bacha Bazi is a custom that has been around Afghan tradition for centuries. However, over time, due to poverty and innumerable tragedies that have infiltrated the society of the region, this tradition got distorted to an extent that is now directly violating human and children´s rights. This practice became excessive once the US Special Forces invaded Afghanistan. The distorted subculture of Afghan pedophilia at the moment represents one of the most horrifying violations of human rights in the world.

        yeah… I noticed that David Spiegelhalter the stats vs. risks go-to guy keeps well away from the coronavirus + vaccine wars.

        – or –

        what he says isn’t reported?


        • StewGreen says:

          @Tomo that is not true. He tweeted with glee about Mark Steyn being taken down
          Is he aware that Steyn’s misinformation in that episode was a trigger that brought in JamieJenkins to the next episode, which meant the stat was corrected and that Steyn’s future stats became robust ?

          BUT Here is a new retweet from Spiegelhalter


          • tomo says:

            I wondered – it’s weird – think I’m following Spiegelhalter – but I rarely if ever see his tweets.

            I see that he got sucked into prediction early on in the virus mess.

            He does wear some intellectual humility as a badge of small honor – and often qualifies his assessments cautiously afaics.

            – unlike so many others in the public health space.

            Pounce on Steyn but leave others who contributed far worse well alone…. I’m surprised at Steyn getting misinformed (I don’t know the details) – if you are going to challenge the blob – best to do veracity checks brutally at the office before broadcasting. I wonder if Steyn has any research staff.

    According to the BBC (quoting Baroness Casey), the problem with the Met is that they’re insufficiently woke. And there was me thinking the problem was they neither prevented crime nor caught criminals.

    As a result, we can now expect even more lefty indoctrination of our police, and more black, brown, female, gay and trans coppers.

    Yep, that should do it.

    If you watch live Ofcom channels you should have a TV licence that is the law
    but see how in this video the inspectors leave when the householder challenges them on their claim is that he was watching LIve TV when their inspector last called.
    They have a warrant to enter but chose not to implement it.

    Yes he may have been watching a sports recording or live sport on a foreign channel which is therefore not under Ofcom rules.
    The householder could have opened his mouth and given them more evidence but he didn’t.


    • Oldspeaker says:

  13. Flotsam says:

    I noticed Harriet Harridan in her opening statement basically as much as said Johnson was guilty. Her preamble point by point went over what “someone” might have done to be guilty and by implication said Johnson had done it.

    The hearing was supposed to be discovering the significance of the evidence for and against but Harridan Harm-man was acting as prosecutor in chief.

  15. Flotsam says:

    Judge for yourselves:

    Harriet Harman says the job of Privileges Committee is to decide whether Boris Johnson misled the House, committed a contempt, and did so in an “intentional or reckless” way.

    “We proceed on the basis that what we are told by ministers is accurate. Parliament expects proactive candour and transparency. If what ministers tell us is not the truth, we can’t do our job. Our democracy depends upon trust, that what ministers tell MPs in the House of Commons is the truth. And without that trust our entire parliamentary democracy is undermined.

    “Everyone makes mistakes, and when ministers do they are expected to correct that at the earliest possible opportunity, which is what happens routinely.

    “But misleading intentionally or recklessly or refusing to answer, or failing to correct, impedes or frustrates the functioning of the House and is contempt.”

    What’s this story on the BBC TV News at Six?

    An ex-RAF WW2 veteran has died. He had no known relatives. They are searching for relatives so somebody can attend his funeral.

    Very unusual for the BBC to take such an interest in an ordinary ex-serviceman. It’s not a terribly newsworthy story if I’m being brutally honest but, still, it seems very patriotic of the BBC to feature this on the news. I might have to change my view of the BBC and unsubscribe from Biased BBC.

    OH, WAIT A MINUTE … I’ve just noticed something.


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      Contrast with the Radio 4 news at 6 pm and its coverage of the setting on fire of the old Muslim man: lots of passive voice was used to hide key information, no name of the suspect, no indication of the colour (Black) or religion of him either. He seems to have done the same thing to someone else in another place previously. Typical standard BBC lying by omission.


      • Fedup2 says:


        Every time I hear ‘news’ like that – which needs to be ‘decoded’ to get the facts it reminds me of how 1984 the UK has become in such a short time .

        We can’t trust a single thing we read on the BBC any longer. But what never even get to see because they don’t want us to know is even worse. It really shows their ethics for what they are.

    Any fans of professional queer “rev’ Richard Coles out there -?

    Here is a Guardian piece for you . No tears now …

    The Rev Richard Coles is disappointed to be leaving his weekend Radio 4 programme Saturday Live after 12 years, he has told the Guardian. His departure was caused by the BBC’s decision to relocate the programme – which he co-hosts with broadcaster Nikki Bedi – from London to Cardiff, leaving him unable to continue after this Saturday, 25 March, which will be his final show.

    “I’d have preferred the programme to stay in London. I think it would be better. I was happy doing it and I think it’s gone from strength to strength,” said Coles. “Moving it to Cardiff, I don’t really see how that works, but that’s not my decision – that’s other people’s decision.

    “I think the programme was doing really well, actually,” he continued. “We were both enjoying doing it and it’s a shame it can’t continue in the form it’s been in for a long time, which works, and which pleases listeners.”

    Coles is particularly disappointed at the way the BBC has handled his departure. Despite the decision for him to step down having been taken weeks ago – as part of the corporation’s wider strategy to move programmes outside of London – the broadcaster neglected to make a statement about it until Tuesday night – only five days before his final show.

    When they did announce it, it was with minimal fanfare, flagged to journalists as a brief note in an email accompanying a press release about the content of this weekend’s Saturday Live, with Coles’ departure failing even to earn its own dedicated announcement.

    “If you leave a programme after 12 years, a gentler process would have been nice. But what happens happens,” he said. “It just feels a little bit rushed. It’s been frustrating for me having to wait for an announcement, and now it’s my last programme on Saturday. I’d rather have had a longer goodbye to listeners.”

    Coles’ departure is in marked contrast to that of Ken Bruce, who recently left his BBC Radio 2 morning show after 31 years. The BBC flagged his departure in a dedicated statement months in advance of his final show, then released pictures of his last broadcast. When it was put to Coles that, in comparison, the BBC have failed to mark his exit with the respect he deserved, given his length of service, Coles replied: “I couldn’t possibly comment.”

    However, he added: “It just feels a bit sad. I’m sorry to go; I’ve loved the programme, I’ve loved the people I’ve worked with, and it’s been a big part of my life. I shall miss it.”

    Coles is the latest BBC presenter to express dissatisfaction at his treatment by the corporation, following the furore over their treatment of Gary Lineker. After they removed the broadcaster from an episode of Match of the Day in a dispute over impartiality, huge numbers of sports presenters and commentators walked out, with the row eventually calling into question the continued presence of chair Richard Sharp, given that he hadn’t stepped down from his role, despite being investigated over facilitating a loan to Boris Johnson, reportedly worth about £800,000.

    Coles’s departure has thus far been far more low key, with the presenter yet to make any public statement on the matter, and the BBC giving so little acknowledgement to his final show that as yet, not a single fan has contacted the presenter about his impending exit. “I haven’t heard from any listeners yet. I don’t think it’s been on Twitter or anything. Perhaps people just think, ‘oh well’,” he said. “I’ve been on the programme a really long time and have enjoyed a really great relationship with listeners, so I’m sorry that’s coming to an end.”

    A BBC spokesperson said: “Richard has been brilliant on Saturday mornings and very much continues to be part of the Radio 4 family. We look forward to working with him on future projects.”ENDS

    Somehow I don’t think the rajar figures will be affected or that he ll be missed … not for me …

    On GBNews it seems Alistair Stewart has thrown the towel in ….

    BBCnews “British Gas boss takes £3.7m bonus despite criticism”
    … the BBC has cultivated a marxist audience so a 1,000 people reply tweet like seals with Politics of Envy bollocks.
    It’s NOT an impartial headline, its like a student Labour Party magazine headline.

    The headline is BS
    It’s like saying “BBC presenter Gary Lineker takes £5m bonus despite criticism”
    or Graham Norton
    or some other superstar who earns most of their money OUTSIDE the BBC

    cos the bosses money is NOT from the low profit British Gas UK retail division
    He’s actually the Centrica boss and the profit comes mainly from their overseas operation.

    And why doesn’t the headline say who’s criticising him ?
    At least the article mentions he hasn’t taken a bonus in the previous 3 years.

      Absolutely typical woke lefties. They hate the people who point out the message because they have no argument against the message. Exactly like maxi here.

      Essentially, the BoE is f***ed. Same in US. Decades of printing Fiat Currency and letting the Bond Market buy in, is coming home to roost. The Bond Market investors are wary AKA Liz Truss. The “Experts” are reconciling the current events to 2008 and earlier. They are wrong. The current debacle has never before arisen as the long-term negative idea to print all the money you want i.e. “quantitive easing” is accelerating never slowing down.

      05.11.20 – (and look what’s happened since)
      “The Bank of England has a problem – creditworthiness is deteriorating fast
      This morning, the Bank of England announced its latest monetary policy decision. It will keep the UK’s main interest rate at 0.1%. That was expected. The surprise came in the form of more money printing. Economists had expected the Bank to print another £100bn. Instead, quantitative easing (QE) was expanded by £150bn. In other words, the Bank will now buy £150bn more of UK government debt than previously planned.”

    Friend who inspired Shamima Begum to join IS mocks her as non-believer

    What the hell is this ???. ‘Inspired’ ? – that’s a positive word – such as ‘inspire confidence’. It means:
    ‘fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

    And why are the BBC spending license fee payers money to track down friends of Shamima Begum ?. And of course makes comments along the lines of ‘She’s not an extremeist after all’.

    We get:

    ‘She says Shamima only came to Syria because “she just followed her friends into what became the biggest misery of her life”.

    Despite speculation that Shamima Begum had worked in Hisba – the IS religious police – and made suicide belts, Sharmeena says such theories were “such an insult”.’

    This is serious abuse of power by the BBC. There is no question in my mind that the compulsary license fee must end. They are left-wing activists become more extreme as time goes on. Why should decent people have to fund it ?.

    Here’s one of the trio who wrote it:

    Here’s another:

    And the only male on the team is pushing this agenda relentlessy on twitter – and all his message of support are from Muslim women. He wrote this on his twitter:
    ‘Out of the blue, a monster podcast fan just came up to me in a coffee shop and gave me a hug. At a moment I was feeling very blue. Sometimes the universe is very kind.’

    Mosque fire suspect arrested over second attack

    They have had to report the second burning of a Muslim as it’s hit the general news now. I read this article for one reason : to see if they identify the man who did it.

    And scouring through their article, they absolutely hide who he is – despite them knowing full well and videos freely available online of him doing it. All he is ever referred to is ‘a man’.

    The intent is absolutely clear. They want everyone to assume it was a far-right white male. But we all know by now, that would have been in the main headline if it were the case.

    Let me help you BBC : he’s a black Muslim immigrant from Kenya. Sorry if you don’t like it.

    Here he is doing the crime. Everybody else identifies him BBC – why are YOU protecting his identity ?.

    Disgraceful racist bias from the BBC yet again.

    Lets see who wrote it:

    It’s beyond ridiculous. Are there any white males left at all at the BBC now ?. It’s become news by leftist idiots for other leftist idiots.

  35. JohnC says:

    This BBC headline amused me because it is absolutely and deliberately misleading:

    Clearly we are supposed to think it’s because they don’t support him any more.

    But the actual reason is far, far more sinister.

    ‘Mike Wendling’ (the BBC ‘journalist’) tries to ridicule the reason like this:

    ‘There’s breathless chatter about double agents and “false flags” – attacks carried out with the intention of blaming opponents for the violence.’

    But the meaning is very, very serious. It’s right at the heart of the Jan 06 protests and the subsequent politcial persecution afterwards.

    Mike uses his BBC twitter like many others : to promote his own book called ‘Alt-Right: From 4chan to the White House’. From Amazon reviews:

    ‘The author shows his leftist bias while denying he is biased.’

    ‘It bases open how the alt-Right is just another for racism and white supremacy, and that Make America Great Again is code for Make America all White (again).

    “Reviewers” who genie rate this book with a vote of 1 star are in fact alt-Righters trying desperately to suppress the book. Ignore them…’

    It’s a sign of the what the BBC has become that this very clear activist is allowed to cover Trump stories.

      Hello tomo

      I was blocked on FB sometime ago for saying Saint Greta looks like a trannie, okay maybe I should have lied and not got blocked


      • JohnC says:

        By blocking you, they are saying either Trannies or Greta will be offended by what you said.

        I wonder which it is.

      I was blocked on Facebook for one hour for offending community standards. I responded to a report that Linaker had been removed from Match of the Day because he had a throat infection. I did not comment but pressed the response indicating a laugh, a smiley face. That was enough to earn a punishment.

    Just browsing the BBC news and ended up in a report stuffed full of Getty images all pushing the agenda.

    So I thought I’d try and find out just how much money the BBC pay Getty as I’m certain they do it to keep them in business for agenda reasons – just as they do the Guardian. For example, Getty have the policy to use a capital B for black. And of the 32 close-up pictures of people on their front page, not a single one is a white male.

    They are racists.

    Imagine my surprise to find someone had requested that very information:


    ‘Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

    Getty Images is a provider of recent high quality, relevant and diverse photos. On their website, they state that they charge ~£250 per photo.

    Does the BBC pay this amount or less per photo used on the BBC News website (including BBC Sport), and if not, how much do they pay per photo?

    Additionally, how much in total is paid to Getty Images per year by the BBC?’

    Imagine how surprised I WASN’T to learn the BBC refused to answer the question.

    Why would they do that ?. Only one reason I can think of : it’s a LOT.

      RACISM by the BBC.


      • JohnC says:

        At the very, very least it is racist discrimination. One racial group is being consciously preferred over another. Same as anything on TV which has BAME in numbers higher than their representation in society.

        Which is completely illegal. And it shows what a complete farce our entire government/legal system really is. It is most definitely one law for them and a different one for us.

        Remember that when more black people are chosen because of their skin colour, some white actors didn’t get the job because of their skin colour. It’s that simple.


        • Terminal Moraine says:

          John they’ll have a subscription — they won’t be paying £250 each time. BBC and others use mostly editorial images which have lower costs than creative licences (which can get very expensive depending on where/how they are used).

          Still it’s telling they don’t want to reveal what their subscription costs are. Public service?

    The bias that drives ‘catty’ workplace conflict

    When women work for other women, clashes are notorious – even inevitable. But that narrative doesn’t tell the whole story.

    ‘There are many long-held gendered stereotypes in society. Academics say that, predominantly, men are expected to be assertive, competitive and ambitious; while women should be nurturing, caring and compassionate. Consistently reinforced throughout broader society, these stereotypes play out in management styles, too.’

    The ONE thing which these feminist apology articles never, ever go near is the real truth.

    Men and women are different. Evolution made men stronger, more aggressive and have a natural instinct to ‘propogate’ with as many women as possible. That way the strongest prevails.

    Women evolved to take care of the children. This involves being extremely protective for them and doing everything they can to keep other women away from their ‘man’ so the child is well protected. Every woman is a threat to other women.

    Sorry if you don’t like what got us here women – but that’s the truth. Men and women are different. Boys aren’t forced to play war and girls aren’t forced to like dolls. It’s what nature makes them like.

    Some women really, really hate that. It stems from the jealousy gene which made them protect their family when we lived in caves. Hence the vile misandry so prevalent in the modern media.

    Sorry if people don’t like that. Nature gave men AND women both good qualities and bad qualities by modern society standards. But’s they are all why we are here now. It’s no good simply blaming men for everything.

    Ban footy sez the BBC

    The propaganda section -aka news – sez the bbc has monitored the air movements of prem footy teams to matches . This must stop to achieve climate wotsit by next year.

    It proposes –

    No crowds at games who cannot walk or cycle to matches

    All games must be played at home using video conferencing

    No need for a 4th official who has to drive to grounds

    No overnight use of hotels – campsites can be used . The hotels will be ‘freed up ‘ for lovely new dinghy arrivals

    Games can be shortened- no ‘half time ‘.

    Played in daylight only

    Trees to be planted on pitches and in corners

    Team sizes to be reduced

    More ‘diverse ‘ crowds – no chanting or shouting to reduce CO2……

    Me ? I’m heading for Gatwick today to burn some avgas at 35000 feet. Lovely …

    Maybe I should have saved this for April 1

        Maybe he should check on the total air miles inflected on his planet by BBC funded staff of all types and publish same – particulary for jollies tike the World Cup and Olympics ….. the Publish the cost to the taxpayer ….

        Once these loons go down the road of criticising human activity and demand changes they need to be held to public account …


  41. Fedup2 says:

    BBC after the current blue labour PM. This time he is accused of having too much money after releasing hit tax summary .

    I have an idea .

    Every politician and public facing journo will publish and broadcast their income and taxes – this will be declared every time they appear – particulary on the bbc .

    They will also have to cite the cost of commom key foods such as eggs and milk and organic sun dried tomatoes …..

    Looks like they’ve got a new campaign for a ‘formal apology ‘ for something – I don’t care about what it was as it is just meaningless woke Crap and a sign of our mad times .

    You join us as 2016 era populism is put on trial on both sides of the pond – when in fact it is those ardent Lockdown supporters and the Ukraine warmongers who since that date broke our economy that ought to be put under the most severe questioning

    Just in case you imagined our Rishi was running things over here, rather than simply carrying out globalist orders devised and coordinated from elsewhere: UK interest rates: Another rise expected as prices soar… Analysts think an increase in the Bank rate from 4% to 4.25% is the most likely outcome of the Monetary Policy Committee meeting later (BBC)

    Segueways neatly with…

    Fed presses ahead with quarter point rate rise despite banking turbulance (FT) – if only Mr AsI had a dollar (or a pound, or even a euro) for every time he noted that dread word despite busy doing its familiar dubious work in a news headline.

    Fed lifts interest rates to 5pc despite turmoil (Telegraph)

    An unexpected increase in the rate of inflation… That makes an interest rate rise more likely, despite analysts having previously been more circumspect about the chances of an increase (BBC)

    Federal Reserve raised interest rates on Wednesday. The increase came despite fears that the move could add to financial turmoil after two bank failures in the US. (BBC)

    Oh the fun and games to be had typing the word ‘despite’ into the Control f search function on ones keyboard.

    Punk and post-punk band Killing Joke released their second album in 1981 under the enigmatic title What’s THIS for…! with the opening track interestingly dubbed The Fall of Because

    Armed and indeed youthfully prewarned with such entymological existentialism in mind Mr AsI now turns his sceptical matured eye toward our present news media headlines.

    One seems to recall it was the fomerly Brexiteer JR Mogg versus some scion of the house Dimbleby on a BBC Question Time show who noted that word to be something of a champion choice in our mainstream headlines, despite the vigorous denials of the host.

    Mosque fire suspect arrested over second attack – says the BBC. They have had to report the second burning of a Muslim as it’s hit the general news now. I read this article for one reason : to see if they identify the man who did it. (JohnC, recently hereabouts)

    Not naming suspects ‘puts justice at risk’ – says the Telegraph

    …plans would allow forces to withhold names of suspects charged with serious offences… the option of withholding information about criminal cases from the media and public… so says: The proposals from the College of Policing (Telegraph)

    The complacent old Torygraph can only think to counter this by hiding behind the skirts of feminism: Rape and sexual violence campaigners have expressed unease… (Telegraph)

    But of course it is this following form of headline that the College of Policing would prefer to see expunged: Sir Keir Starmer soft on foreign criminals… SEVEN dangerous foreign thugs due to be deported went on to commit serious crimes after Sir Keir Starmer campaigned for them to remain in Britain (The Sun) – let’s in future adopt CofP house-style for the former CPS boss and simply refer to Sir Keir, the man charged with leading the Labour Party and PM in waiting, as: ‘a man from Surrey’

    A finale segueway, just to lighten the mood somewhat: Arrest could be fun, Trump tells his friends (Telegraph)

    You can guess how this went.
