    Not on the bbc, yet, but as every station goes even further down the toilet (LBC letting JO’bsworth spout partial hate constantly), here’s a sample…

    Yet they still think anyone is fooled any more by an edit?


    • pugnazious says:

      It’s on the BBC now but somehow they miss this fuller explanation [from the Mail]….

      ‘Superdrug claimed female staff were assaulted and the store had to be shut due to damage.

      A spokesman for the chain told MailOnline yesterday: ‘An incident occurred today in our Chichester store between Chichester BID Rangers and a group of young males they were monitoring.

      ‘Unfortunately, female staff were also assaulted. This is now a police matter, and we are offering our full assistance to Sussex Police. ‘

    The Scottish Nationalists had leaders who were keen to forge links with the Nazis before the war and during…..as pointed out in the video.

    The links were revealed in MI5 files released in 2005…..however the BBC doesn’t even mention them in this report in 2017….but note them saying this quote is from a Nazi propaganda broadcast…..however you can hear almost the same quote coming from an SNP leader in the video….


    ‘“War is being fought for Churchill, the Jew and the capitalist. Scotland has got to get out of this war of capitalism now. We must get a separate peace.”’

    The BBC’s headline is….

    ‘How the Nazi propaganda machine tried – and failed – to stir up rebellion in World War Two Scotland’

    Which fails to mention it wasn’t only the German Nazi propaganda machine which said such things trying to stir up rebellion but the SNP itself.

    The BBC is always ready to remind us that the Mail had early support for the Blackshirts, whilst forgetting the Mirror also did, and that the BBC’s Reith was a Nazi supporter himself, so why is it less than keen to note the SNP’s support for the Nazis not just pre-war but during the war?

    Reith, a Scot, kept Churchill and his criticisms of and warnings about the Nazis off the airwaves before the war much as the modern BBC tried, and succeeded eventually, to keep Boris away from power….and still doing it to this very day as it shapes the narrative from the Privileges Committee’s kangaroo court to make it appear Boris is guilty.

    Ukraine war: The front line where Russian eyes are always watching

    This video is amusing because the utterly clueless BBC reporter makes his way back to the trench standing fully upright despite people telling him to get down – then when he is in the trench, he does get down. Even though he is in a trench.

    I’ve noticed that the farther Left people are, the more utterly clueless they are in the real world. For example, I’d bet my hat that Vile could not even change the wheel on his car or check the oil.

    World Athletics bans transgender women from competing in female world ranking events

    The woke transgender farce of ‘they are real women’ meets the real world.

    I bet they keep very quiet about this because if they open this can of worms, they know it will end badly for them.


  6. JohnC says:

    An aggressive protestor tries to push her through security to get at someone speaking and as they push her back she very obviously falls to the ground on purpose and tries to stay there for the cameras even though they are attempting to lift her up. Then she struggles and crawls away without a single shred of dignity.

    But what’s even MORE pathetic than that is that she is an Australian Senator !!!.

    And whats EVEN MORE pathetic than that is the BBC article which tries to back her up.

    Lidia Thorpe: Australian police review conduct after senator pulled to ground

    They key line is this : ‘and then apparently pulled to the ground by police.’. ‘Apparently’ meaning they know she wasn’t.

    The article then degnerates into the usual BBC inuendo trying to tar everybody on the right with the brush – ‘Nazis’ even get mentioned. Which is always a sign of desperation.

    Ms Thorpe later told the Guardian she had been “pulverised” by police, and Indigenous Affairs Minister Linda Burney described the incident as “disturbing and concerning”.

    It’s disturbing and concerning alright. Just what calibre of people are Australia selecting as Senators ???.

    And why is this Australian woman talking to The Guardian FFS ?. Could it be because nobody else wants to know as she clearly faked it ?. One thing any feminist can be sure of is a warm welcome at that den of misandry. No matter how ridiculous they are.

    It’s all so pathetic I can’t believe people take it seriously. But of course these activists don’t care one bit about truth or honour. And neither do the calibre of ‘journalists’ the BBC employ these days.

    The author Tom Housden also likes to share anti-Boris memes on his twitter feed.

    Looks like the violence against macron in France is so serious now that the BBC can no longer suppress reporting what is happening .

    I understand that it’s mainly about increasing the retirement age from 62 to 64! ( I’m sure I heard a news readers say 74 )

    But could you imagine something like that level of protest here? We have been bred to be so docile – so accepting – with even slight dissent crushed ….

    Why spring-cleaning won’t benefit your health

    Not interested in the article at all : it’s 100% rubbish churned out by a quota employee who has to be given something to do.

    The stand-out thing is the picture of the person doing the spring-cleaning. A white male. It’s too big to link here – but you get the idea.

    I wonder if she was told to find a picture of a white male or she did it from her own ‘initiative’. I really do wonder how this consistency works at the BBC.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Seems like the BBC is heavily into certain ‘types’ of people . The kind of monoculture it sneers at elsewhere . The BBC s favourite word is ‘diversity ‘ yet seems not to practice it .


      • Guest Who says:

        Certainly in cubicle garden terms there seems an even split between young, blonde, stupid, prone to selfies, and young, bitter, ‘Asian’, stupid, prone to stories mostly about relatives and… fewer selfies.

        With luck the hiring policy will soon weed out the former and, in time, the selfies as the blondes age and get fired.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Guest – problem is – the swamp is so incestuous that they just move between media outfits and politics – the Far Left red or blue Labour Party of course ….

          And by the very nature of the power and voice they possess – there is no comment ….

          …. But at least someone watches stuff and comments – such as a piece in the Guardian today where ex blue labour ministers got private ‘jobs ‘ close to their previous brief …
          Nice chap – damn nice chap ….


      • JohnC says:

        Their recruitment policy is completely racist and sexist. Which is basically what ‘diverse’ means but they came up with a label to sanitise it.

        But for some reason when those two mean ‘white males’, the Leftist hypocrites seem not to notice.

    Today interviewed the fool who runs the Bank of England . I checked him on wiki – he has never had a non public sector job – yet he is telling businesses not to pass on price rises to punters because inflation will keep going up and become ‘imbedded’ .
    It is ‘imbedded’ and there’s not much sign of real control because his outfit has been too slow on raising interest rates …..
    This is likely to continue for years …. Unless China or Russia blows up …. Meanwhile green crap makes thing even worse …

    Greater perception of risks edition

    It was T S Eliot (the poet about whom Dylan Thomas was supposed to have quipped – his name spells toilets backwards, nearly) author of The Hollow Men, wherein he coined that line which entered the popular consciousness This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.

    And so it is, without fanfare, announcement or official notice, that our BBC drops their long-standing Coronavirus page tab from the online news website. One clicks on the Health page out of curiosity and expectation but reads headlines about: Four-day junior doctor strike set for April; What are abortion pills and could they be banned? and; Bristol study into ‘shaken baby’ syndrome advice

    But what do we have here? Also under that same BBC Health section headline: Polio vaccine catch-up push to launch in London – a report by Naomi Grimley, Global health correspondent – with no explicit mention of the Corona, the Koof, the Chinese Flu, the Wuhan lurgy, My Sharona… but still with a last vestige of a lingering ‘Lengthy’ Covid – there’s a link residually entitled: Coronavirus pandemic – which leads to the BBC article… [see if you can guess the story?]

    Boris Johnson: Ex-PM to reveal evidence in his defence over Partygate (BBC)

    Ah, the Partygate trial. Can they still do you in retrospect for corona offences? Will the cops nick one if one admits to breaking the rules of old Lockdowns of yore? Like that time one might have entered a restaurant and only pretended to zap the QR code? Or an occasion one could have feigned not having a cell phone and gave fake name and contact number to the track and trace? Two counts of that offence might have been commited, one verbal misrepresenation and one written misstatement of contact details. Not that one purports to be some sort of latter day Spartacus or Robin Hood figure. Perish the thought. My nom de guerre was John Borrison – get it?

    Historians among us will recall the Salem Witch Trials and the like and perhaps ponder the fact that those we now consider as victims who were hanged or burnt or whatever suffered because – and only because – the Judge, jury, lawyers and all sincerely believed there was in fact such a thing as witchcraft.

    Nicola Sturgeon apologises to people accused of witchcraft… In a statement at Holyrood, the first minister said those accused under the act “were not witches, they were people and they were overwhelmingly women”. (BBC, March 2022)

    Witch hunts took place in many countries during that period, but academics say Scotland’s execution rate was five times the European average. (BBC) – the Scots have been a bit weird at times.

    That was about the closest our Nicola came to stating clearly there’s no such thing as witchcraft. Obviously she didn’t want to upset the Pagan or Wiccan lobby or whatever. The rest of her statement was a misandry-friendly bitch about men. Follow the science, Nicola.

    The formerly coronaphobic ‘i’ newspaper tentatively tiptoes where wise media angels fear to tread: Families hit by rare reaction to AstraZeneca jab launch legal fight

    And we can always trust the afore mentioned Judge, jury, lawyers and all – lady justice is blindfold as she holds aloft the fairly balanced scales of justice – or not – as the case may be: Fury at woke barristers refusing to prosecute eco warriors (Daily Mail)

    One’s expectations were raised for a moment at sight of this Briefing headline in the FT: Covid fraud unresloved – but as usual that headline simply indicates more bad news for we taxpayers: The National Audit Office has said just 1 per cent of the £1.1bn thought to have been lost to fraud and error in the grant schemes has been recovered

    The Times is just a tad more urgent in their dismay: Only 1 per cent of lost or stolen Covid grant cash recovered

    But you have to allow for the fact that the FT has other bigger concerns than a bit of wasted tax money belonginmg to the little people. There’s a big EU out there we need to rejoin: Here’s to EU – happily quips the pink paper’s Datawatch feature: UK adults’ views of the bloc’s leadership… Britons approval rating… on the rise since 2013, surpassed 50 per cent last year for the first time since the survey began. At 51 per cent, that is more than the 46 per cent who approve of the UK leadership… Source Gallop – no one has asked me. Apart, of course, from that moment back in 2016 that we had a proper vote on it. Anyway, if we’re convinced by this poll that’s a mandate not only to rejoin but to abrogate all our current laws and leadership to complete control from Brussels.

    The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper imparts useful advice on: How to prevent AI causing nuclear war

    The Telegraph is concerned: Ofsted could scrap one-word ratings after teacher’s death – this is the story about: Stopping or preventing school inspections in England would be against “children’s best interests”, the chief inspector of Ofsted has said… Unions have called for them to be paused, after head teacher Ruth Perry took her own life while waiting for a report that downgraded her school.

    Article by “Dropping like Flies” in The Conservative Woman website:

    “I despair sometimes at the stupidity of some people out there – don’t get me wrong I’m hardly Albert Einstein myself but there are times when you think where do these people keep their brains for crying out loud?

    Woman in a shop was telling this other woman how both her son and his wife have come down with colds recently so they tested themselves for covid – he tested positive and she was negative which they didn’t understand because they live together. So they ‘sent off’ some further tests (don’t ask me where they sent them to – some place where they charge you and earning tons of money from these the dimwits who are still testing themselves I suppose?) anyway apparently they both come back negative – which made them even more confused because they both had sort of recovered from their bout of sniffles by now and they had also done another test while they waited for results to come back and both now tested positive – so they made an appointment with their local surgery to get tested and he tested negative but she tested positive – so they did one final test themselves and now both tested negative.

    Its madness I tell you shear lunacy – you have to hear this stuff to believe it.

    So why all the testing? Apparently they’re both going to visit relations in Wales … yes that’s right Wales – and they didn’t want to spread their cold-like virus around so to be on the safe side they decided to test themselves to kingdom come and even though they have both fully recovered they’ve called the whole trip off because they couldn’t decide what tests were right and which were wrong.

    There are times when don’t know whether to laugh or cry – I mean how do these people even manage to cross the road during the day? It has me completely stumped I can tell you.

    Oh well.”

      Jeremy Wright Conservative, Kenilworth and Southam

      My constituent, Jamie Scott, spent four weeks in a coma, and remains seriously disabled as a result of a covid vaccination. He and his family continue to believe that mass vaccination is the right policy, but it must surely also be right to ensure that the tiny minority who are seriously injured as a result are properly compensated. In the absence of court cases, it is in no one’s interest to litigate. The current limit on compensation is £120,000, even for very serious and lifelong injury, and anyone who is disabled by less than 60% gets nothing at all. That cannot be right. Will my right hon. Friend look urgently at changing that?


      Rishi Sunak The Prime Minister, Leader of the Conservative Party

      It is important to start by recognising the importance of vaccines in protecting us all, not least the fantastic roll-out of the covid vaccines across the UK. I am very sorry to hear about the case my right hon. and learned Friend raises. In the extremely rare case of a potential injury from a vaccine covered by the scheme, a one-off payment can be awarded. That is not designed to be a compensation scheme, and it does not prevent the injured person from pursuing a legal compensation claim with the vaccine manufacturer. We are taking steps to reform vaccine damage payment schemes, by modernising the operations and providing more timely outcomes, but of course I would be happy to talk to my right hon. and learned Friend further about that.

    From The Guardian – all not well with ‘the bbc staff’ lol

    Lang said that while she left the show “voluntarily” and is to present Radio 4’s Round Britain Quiz, she was saddened that the broadcaster chose not to formally announce her departure.

    Her remarks follow similar complaints from the Rev Richard Coles about the handling of his exit from Saturday Live. In a Twitter post, Lang said: “Like @RevRichardColes I also feel sad that @BBCRadio4 never announced my exit from @BBCFrontRow & persuaded me not to say goodbye to listeners after 19 years of presenting.”

    She added: “Thanks for the lovely messages from @BBCFrontRow listeners. Just to clarify I left voluntarily. My lament was the lack of an official announcement or goodbye but I’m now very happy to be the new presenter of Round Britain Quiz.”

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?

        is he active on Twitter / his web site / attending the house, listed as “present” at assd. places etcetera…? He hasn’t elaborated on what if anything the locals are complaining about at his surgeries.

        Resigned as Chair of Commons Finance Committee last day of Feb 2023

        The longer they stay schtum the more people are going to sniff around.

      There was a programme on R4 around lunchtime about covid and misinformation – and cancelling and banning and stopping criticism of the vaccines .

      I didn’t hear all of it – but the presenter talked about the way YouTube took down critism of the vaccine roll out as though the BBC hadn’t been complicit in the UK state propaganda operation to frighten us into getting jabbed .

      I wasn’t into the detail of the programme but I sense a change of the way the British state is handling the Chinese virus now …
      There is more mention of the harm the vaccines have been doing – including deaths – many deaths – and it’s as though those shouting about it long ago – mark steyn – never did it and never existed …
      Ladies – gentlemen – I suggest this really is one to watch as a case study of how WE are conditioned – okay – groomed to be have in a certain way . ….with the State Broadcaster being Pravda or the ‘people’s daily ‘ in time of stress … with BBCOFCOM like a puppy following up on dissent …

    Here’s a thought, why doesn’t the bbbc only use wind and solar power to produce its output?

    Probably because they would only be able to operate for 1/2 an hour a day.

      That’s a mighty big argument IN FAVOUR of wind and solar power.
      However, 30 minutes a day is still O.T.T.
      I think the energy companies should just pull the plug on ’em because, in my opinion, the misnamed BBC are irredeemable.


    • StewGreen says:

      The BBC had a plan to reduce transmitter energy by switching to 100% DAB
      So how much CO2 has that saved ?
      #1 The DAB listeners use more energy cos the signal i weaker
      thus emit more CO2
      #2 The BBC was set to reduce its own CO2
      however cos the 100% DAB project failed
      the BBC is fueling the low power DAB transmitters
      but is still fueling the OLD FM transmitters
      so BBC’s CO2 is up and listeners CO2 is up.

      If O’Brien really believes QT audiences skew towards the Tories, he is even more of a slack jawed fuckwit than I thought.

    That would be the hosepipe ban they have provoked by deliberately creating the water shortage by building all these new houses and not fixing water leaks.

    After yesterdays post regarding America as the global bully post Biden some one else thought the US is gunning for war with China posted this video 8 hours ago.

    It is sadly inevitable that the muppets in Westminster who seem incapable of intelligent independent thought will follow the US down this route which even US models show will result in at best a stalemate and at worst a defeat.
