    From Sickipedia.

    The new BBC serialisation of Great Expectations is to feature a multicultural cast.

    About time too. Tired of seeing Magwitch the criminal played by a white man.


    • JohnC says:

      lol, he’s still white of course.

      It scores a massive 4.6 on IMDB.

      Worth checking the 10/10 reviews by the racist wokies. One put:

      ‘However I am giving it 10 star just to counter all the white folks losing their mind over casting a black person for an imaginary character, and giving it 1 star.’

      There are only 10 reviews and only one even mentions race – and then in a sensible manner. Seems like this little Wokie idiot just couldn’t wait to get their hate out.


      • harry142857 says:

        19.7% ratings.10 out of 10.
        39.1% ratings 1 out of 10.

        I recall having a discussion in the pub one day with a media studies expert about a white English guy called Ben Kingsley playing Gandhi. After his rant and grinning to his mates, thinking he had got one over on this old racist, I asked him if he knew what Kingsley’s real name was.

        His face dropped when I said it was Krishna Pandit Bhanji.


        • JohnC says:

          They will say the 1/10 are from white right-wing racists ‘review-bombing’ it.

          Whilst implying the 10/10 reviews are genuine. When in fact they are effectively the most racist of all.

          Of course those hypocrite idiots would change their stance immediately if a white person was culturally appropriating a black role.


        • Mrs Kitty says:

          @JohnC I also love asking where Michael Bates was born when they go into one about his character from “It ain’t half hot mum “ moaning that an Indian should have played the character . When you mention that he based it on his family’s gardener that he spent all his time as a youngster with they go into total meltdown .


      • MarkyMark says:

        Birnin Zana is located within Wakanda. It is considered by some to be a smart city.[9] In Birnin Zana, pedestrians walk along commerce-filled streets that are car-free except for the occasional appearance of (buslike) shuttles. The whole is quite similar to the woonerf concept, an approach to public space design which started in the Netherlands in the 1970s. Maglev trains are seen zipping above and around the city. The Wakandan buildings incorporate some traditional African elements (i.e. thatched roofs and hanging gardens) on some of the tallest structures.[10]



    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      The BBC destroys everything it touches.

      For them, Victorian London was full of black people. Not just poor people, but lawyers and gentry.

      For them, the British Empire was the epitome of evil, and thus modern Britain is based upon evil.

      For me, the BBC is a criminal conspiracy against Britain.


      • Kaiser says:

        then surely all those black lawyers and gentry were responsible for the slave trade , empire and colonisation ?


        • Rob in Cheshire says:

          The BBC hive mind doesn’t have to think these things through.

          The idea is to brainwash young people, who do not know better, that Britain was always a diverse, multiculti place where black and white unite to buy sofas.


    • Skeldings says:

      Despite being a devotee of Dickens since childhood, I shall not be watching this adaptation, knowing from long experience that it will be a travesty of his work.

      There was a time, perhaps, forty or fifty years ago, when a BBC adaptation of Dickens or any of our other great writers, would be a byword for quality and excellence. They would frequently be broadcast around teatime on Sundays, and provided a very good point of reference for people who wanted to get to know our geat authors but were perhaps a little intimidated by the length and prolixity of authors like Dickens. Alas, no more.

      But I gave up on BBC adaptations after sitting through several of the appalling Sarah Phelps adaptations of Agatha Christie, who is now to be bowdlerised like Roald Dahl. These so-called adaptations cut the very heart out of the Christie books. The BBC has been responsible for some truly shocking cultural vandalism.


    • crushin says:

      What I found is that the BBC follow the same format in every documentary that they show? For instance the programme could be about a pair of socks, but eventualy the subject will gravitate towards racism, homophobia, islamphobia, immagration, femenism etc. Why is this allowed? Netflix or Amazon dont push this agenda?


    • crushin says:

      Its always the same story line with BBC dramas? Public school boy in charge, racist story line, innocent religious cult that are being bullied by facist mobs for no reason, married man who is secretly gay, the incompotent white hooligan working class beer swigging yobo who is stupid and has a drug or drink problem and shown the errors of his working class ignorant ways of intolerance and prejudiced attitude (by the public school boy boss) never changes! And unfunny BBC sitcoms that are so out of touch with the majority of the population, a form of comic nonsense that only people who have been to university get the joke, along with ex teachers who are now the Beebs go to for unfunny and unwitty comedy one liners, smug drivel and left wing humour only! And have u noticed the lefty male presenters seem to all dress the same with suit jackets, chinos, bad shirts, round neck jumpers with shirts underneath, all needing a good shave!


  2. JohnC says:

    I often check the BBC ‘London Violence’ page to see what they are hiding. But more recently I also check for general ‘London Violence’ to see what they are not even reporting.

    Here’s some things I never saw (or never were) reported by the BBC:

    Man who ‘committed senseless’ murder at Ealing pub convicted


    Two teenagers charged with murder of boy, 16, in Northampton

    Once again: ‘The boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will appear next at Northampton Crown Court on Monday’. We can speculate on their ethnicity but we all know for lots of experience what it most likely is.

    This is the victim:

    Man punched woman in the face in unprovoked South London attack


    Reading Station death: Thomas Parker killed with horseshoe, court hears

    Very brief report by the BBC of a particularly barbaric attack. No clue to the animal who did it of course. This picture I found elsewhere confirms what is always the case for these stories:


    And all from 3% of the population.

    There are many more examples as there are every time I check it. Usually I get so fed up with it all, I just close them.


    • Fedup2 says:

      JohnC – is that the thing called ‘ confirmation bias’? And is it one of the reasons that ‘crime watch ‘ was dumped – because there were too many coloured folk committing serious crime ?

      Every so often the likes of frankly thick Lammy or Abbot pop up to moan about too many coloured folk in prison. Nobody says – ‘ it’s because they are disproportionally bad ‘ ….


      • JohnC says:

        Reminds me reading once about somewhere in Europe (Holland I think) where it said they set up a place where all the scum of society were forced to go live.

        Apparently it filled up with black people, the looney Left went into meltdown saying it was racist and it was abandoned.


        • andyjsnape says:

          Hello JohnC

          Maybe quotas for prisons based on colour of skin is needed, a bit like 85% tv adverts etc etc


          • G says:


            This is what it comes to:


            Taxpayers foot the bill, naturally.

            I’ve been banging the drum, over and over again: I await the time when effort by some sort of taxpayers alliance is put into stopping tax input by the public to halt the reckless behaviour of our ruling class. Same Council Tax : ’15 Minute Cities’ etc. Stop the money and put the elite on notice that they, individually, will foot the bill if they continue to finance things that the people don’t want.
            Both National and Local Government need money managing.

            By the way, I’ve written to that namesake, UK Taxpayers Alliance twice over this issue and never received a reply. So I guess I know whose side they’re on.


            • atlas_shrugged says:


              This selective withholding of money is a great idea IMHO. I tried suggesting this to a group who were all for finding ways to refuse local taxation full stop. I am not sure this total block will be tolerated and folks trying this will be sat on. But selective diverting of funds would be a good way for voters striking against insanity.

              That said belonging to certain groups allows you to dump sewage, not pay taxes, claim loads of benefits and generally mine the local community of anything of value like: cash machines, catalytic converters etc.

    Thank God for GB news. This is being shown on the only nonwoke- controlled news platform in the country. Unfortunately not many people know about it. It is called just The Platform. However, this clip has been much appreciated by those who have heard seen it. You are so lucky to have someone like this to speak out.

    You can also listen to the experience of the women attacked by the left thugs while the police stood by on The Platform if you search.

    Thank you Andrew Doyle.


    • Thoughtful says:

      The media lies about Posey Parker are quite unbelievable, and this guy is as big a liar as the rest of them!

      Posey Parker is NOT a womens rights campaigner! What rights are there women do not already have? What extra rights are there Parker is campaigning for and if there are any why are lying twerps like this not telling us?

      Parker is a nasty piece of work, the produce of virulent toxic feminism, a far Left doctrine born of Marxism, and she deserves everything she gets in my book.

      At the weekend Breibart ran a piece on her and the comments were priceless, more or less all of the same opinion, that the far Left feminazis brought all of this on themselves, and it is now hilarious watching them squirm under the shit pile they themselves created.

      So the media on both sides lie & lie & lie as they attempt to reconcile leftist dogma gone wrong.

      Parker is not some kind of victim, and even if you hate trannies which many clearly do my enemies enemy is NOT my friend and Parker will turn on you as quickly as she turned on the trannies if she feels threatened (incredibly easy for her to do).

      We should all be sitting back and quietly laughing as these fools tear themselves to pieces rather than attempting to take sides and getting torn apart in a leftwing fight ourselves.


      • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

        Thoughtful. To hell with your “we should all be sitting back and quietly laughing…”
        The events are clear. A brutal minority has wrecked a peaceful event by a attacking speaker who was calling out the latest trans lunacy.
        If it wasn’t Posie Parker then it would have been someone else. I care not one whit that Posie may not have a perfect political record, I don’t care that she may have been a Labour voter for years. I don’t care and it doesn’t flaming matter!
        The NZ Green Party is now in a position where it can win control of which foreign speakers can enter the country and which must be banned. This is a country where the media have been bought off by the woke Ardern government and institutions have been set up to ensure that the inhabitants remain ignorant of current events, and objective thought in politics and history is snuffed out.
        You miss the point entirely. You haven’t a clue about what is going on in NZ or Australia or how it is connected with the globalist attempt to restrict freedom of information in Western societies.
        It’s not a case of sweet comeuppance for far left feminism. Revel in smug satisfaction if you want, but that is a minor aspect. Try and see the bigger picture for heaven’s sake.


        • Thoughtful says:

          Oh my this has wound you up hasn’t it just. Yet you wrote nothing of a “bigger picture” in you original post, you wrote in support of the odious Parker (and yes the other side are just as bad).

          “If it wasn’t Posie Parker then it would have been someone else” then “You are so lucky to have someone like this to speak out.”

          This is a contradiction, you can see that you are clearly supporting Parker, taking sides here.

          I do have a clue about Aus as I have a friend I’m in regular contact with who lives there, it’s pretty much like the US looking at Canada between Aus and NZ.

          All Western countries are attempting to restrict freedom, however I don’t believe joining in this by siding with people like Posey Parker whose own stated aim is to restrict the freedom of groups she doesn’t approve of is the correct way forward.

          Freedom is always under attack supporting it means sometimes allowing others we might not approve of the freedom to say and do things we might not like, including trannies, it means standing up to people like the two sides here Parker and her opponents because both of them are far left oppressors who want to take away the freedom of others.


          • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

            “You were lucky to have someone like this to speak out” Yes I mean it. I wasn’t referring to Parker I was defending Andrew Doyle from your attack. Good on him.
            Six years ago your friend in Australia told you that there was no problem with the Left. Ha! It was obvious to anyone with a modicum of political nous that the reds were increasing their strength and the Coalition was losing its way bit by bit. The result is now obvious to see. The Albanese government is attempting to change the constitution which wilbringl dramatic and dangerous consequences for democracy and the nation. You seem to be living in a different universe.


            • Thoughtful says:

              “Six years ago your friend in Australia told you that there was no problem with the Left. ”

              Where did I say that? It was clear from the destruction of the Aus power Grid the Left there were causing problems, but the people of Aus only narrowly voted Labour in this time, and although Socialism is a continual existential threat where ever it rears its evil head it doesn’t mean the people are all committed Socialists, just that they are stupid entitled and want the ‘free stuff’ Socialists fool them with.

              as for Doyle, he is lying, just like every other member of the media. I proved this in t he post above, Parker is not a womens rights campaigner as he states, she is simply another hard left anti freedom anti trannie campaigner, she is equally as bad as the other side and to me still it’s two rats fighting in a sack.

              NZ is on the other side of the world and what they do there is up to them. Arderns lunacy ended up with her having to give up and leave politics, but it is their country to do with as they please and nothing to do with me, just as the Muslim countries are theirs to do with as they please and if they want to beat women and hang gays, then that’s their affair just don’t bring it to this country.

    Afghanistan girls’ education: ‘When I see the boys going to school, it hurts’

    A new record I think for over-the-top empathy desperation – even for the extreme BBC.

    Another agenda piece chock-full of fake quotations written by the BBC. Either that or these uneducated girls are remarkably good at English.

    Here are a few – but I can’t force myself to read all of it.

    ‘When I see the boys going to school and doing whatever they want, it really hurts me. I feel very bad.’

    ‘She blinks and bites her lip trying hard not to tear up.’

    ‘People tell my parents you shouldn’t worry, you have sons. I wish we had the same rights.’

    ‘Life has no meaning without education. I think death is better than a life like this’.

    “If they could be educated, they could get jobs. One of my daughters wants to study law and another wants to study medicine. I tell them that I will find money for their education, even if I have to beg for it, but they can’t go to university because the Taliban don’t allow it,” she adds.

    “There is nothing except pain or sorrow in every house now,” she says.

    I don’t believe a single word of this came from the girls. I think the BBC ‘journalist’ coaxed them to say whatever suited her.

    And it will be a ‘her’. These awful pieces are always written by a clone. Here’s this one:


    Perhaps you should try to work out what the actual root of this problem is BBC. It’s not the Taliban, it’s Islam. And Islam is what prevents you from saying it because you worry who you will upset by doing it.

    I wonder how many Pakistani women live under strict oppression at home here in the UK. I bet it is a LOT. But the BBC most definitely won’t go upsetting the local branch. They are needed to win elections and to use as weapons against the arch enemy : the right.

          30K verses 1.5K

          On 4 June, the insurgents began their efforts to capture Mosul. The Iraqi army officially had 30,000 soldiers and another 30,000 federal police stationed in the city, facing a 1,500-member attacking force. The Iraqi forces’ actual numbers were much lower due to ghost soldiers, severely reducing combat ability.[9] After six days of combat and massive desertions, Iraqi soldiers received orders to retreat. The city of Mosul, including Mosul International Airport and the helicopters located there, all fell under ISIL’s control. An estimated 500,000 civilians fled from the city.

          A former commander of the Iraqi ground forces, Ali Ghaidan, accused former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki of being the one who issued the order to withdraw from the city of Mosul.[14]

          Mosul remained under ISIL control for several years. Iraqi forces initiated an offensive on October 17, 2016, to retake the city; the Battle of Mosul ended in its liberation the following July.

          Ah, the USA…..The most powerful armed nation in the World !!! fled like the craven cowards their masters really are from a bunch of mediaeval twats in 4×4’s with a few guns in Afghanistan so why the hell should anyone give them any credibility in facing up to a heavily armed and professional, dedicated army from Russia?

          The entire Muslim World must be rolling around laughing at the dire and Mickey mouse state Biden has made of the US.

          They are talking the talk hoping everyone still sees them as a World power and not the total shit-show the woke US has degenerated into. While they posture in Ukraine they are being overtaken in their own Country by every kind of criminal and left wing activist over their Southern border.

          Biden and his ugly criminal cohorts have killed the US and should face court martial if the US could wake from the nightmare they will very soon be living through.

    I think the BBC is deciding to do something about the rental market . But to me – neither a landlord nor a renter – it seems to have spent years slagging off landlords – some snotty BBC anti capitalist attitude – embraced by both red and blue labour – although I suspect the majority of MPs are landlords .

    I suspect though – the BBC will stay clear of massive benefits fraud perpetrated by certain types of individual –

    Also – abuse of the system – overcrowding – illegals being exploited – voting fraud with flop addresses ….

    Just be on safe ground beating up the property owners …

    Disclosure – I’ve never rented . My first mortgage was at 21 and I worked myself to death paying for it . I think the variable rate back then was around 12% for a while … happy days …

    It’s a gas… it’s a laughing gas, gas, gas, quick boys! edition

    [forgive me for mixing quotes from Mick Jagger with Wilfred Owen so early in the morning]

    There’s a certain wry irony about this limp-wristed Tory government’s drug of choice to suddenly out of the blue get tough with – and the street name it goes by: Laughing gas banned in Sunak crackdown (Guardian)

    Tough on crime? How we laughed.

    Hippy crackdown – shouts the freebie ad sheet Metro leaving us wondering is this the Hippies who are doing the crackdown? Useless Tories making a sudden spur of the moment gesture to supposedly tackle the lastest spur of the moment fashion thing the kids are into? And how about employing the term Hippy – frankly in abeynace since the late sixties, moribund since the seventies and fully redundant since the eighties? As is Conservatism and Britain as a whole – if you think about it.

    But come on, headline writers… get with the times! Mr AsI had to call out the Daily Express at the weekend for their anachronistically fetching out of the history books the term Blitz in relation to supposed Tory posturing on crime. We now live in an era where half the population’s grandparents – if they are still with us post-laughing Matt Hancock’s genious covid carehome policies – survivors might vaguely recall German boombers in 1940 rudely interupting their potty training – and the other half of our present diverse population’s grandparents still resided in mud huts on the other side of the world back in 1940.

    Speaking of which… the left-leaning anti-monarchy ‘i’ newspaper employs that hoary old gag about our Royals being German: Monarchy. King’s visit to Germany is like a homecoming – funny, isn’t it? Every Faisal, Mohammed and Abdul that washes up in Dover suddenly becomes a ‘man from Kent‘ whereas the poor old Saxe-Coburgs and Mountbattens can never live down their Teutonic origins.

    The Daily Express applauds: Olivia’s a big hit as Miss Haversham… Review of BBC’s twist on classic – I’m frankly surprised Idris Elba didn’t get the part.

    Cringe of the day – hands down – goes to the Torygraph frontpage.

    You’ll recall, perhaps, some of that shocking classic Vietnam-era photo journalism – the giveaway Metro obviously thinks we’re all still Hippies – so perhaps readers hereabouts – despite that notion if you can reall the 60s then you weren’t really there – and can still revisualise for instance that stark black and white pic of the street execution of a suspected Vietcong supporter where the camera captured the split second of the pistol shooting him in the head and perhaps bring to mind that image of the injured villagers fleeing their napalmed homes – it is a strange fact that the modern internet now tends to censor that image for the perverse reasoning that a young girl in the photo is pictured naked.

    ‘We’re not obsessed with penises’ Attenborough nature show producers defend explicit animal ‘porn’ (‘i’)

    Mr AsI, once a keen nature show viewer, couldn’t help but note to his family how “One minute you’re watching a nice family-friendly wildlife show, the next minute they’re getting it on. Or playing horses. Or you’re watching this giant centipede getting his leg over, leg over, leg over…” Mr AsI used to be witty like that.

    I ain’t gonna study war no more – so sang Pete Seger

    All we are saying is give peace a chance – sang John Lennon

    Exhibit one from today’s shocking Telegraph cover page is a pic from the football yesterday depicting a bespectacled young boy (not unlike Harry Potter in appearance) holding aloft a paper Ukraine flag with the addition of a sharpie penned slogan reading: Rishi, we need F-16s

    Football takes second place to warmongering politics in the Telegraph’s caption to this propagandarish image – an image not so far removed from a certain mid-twentieth century German youth movement’s boys beating their tin drums – eh, Gary Lineker?: A Ukrainian football fan at Wembly stadium yesterday makes a plea to Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister, for Britain to send military aircraft to help in the conflict with Russia. England beat Ukraine 2-0 in the Euro 2024 qualifier. The score very much an afterthought.

    Perhaps you’re a fully paid up Neocon Tory EU expansionsist who loves this war? Or a Lefty with pacifist leanings who protested the Iraq War but keeps shtum about this one – ‘cos Putin is mean to the gays? Or perhaps you’re a simple football fan trying to avoid the politics? The way things are going and we keep escalating that Euro 2024 tournament could be moot: Putin condemned over Belarus nuclear move (Telegraph)

    Exhibit two from the Torygraph this morning – this one will have those retired ex-colonels from Sidcup sputtering on their cornflakes: ‘Safe’ routes to be opened for 20,000 migrants a year… Tory moderates are set to force a climbdown from the government.

    Whereas: Tory rebels fight to close migrant loophole (Daily Express) – seems the Tory Party can be all things to all men these days.

    Over the many years, I’ve concluded that there’s one ingredient that politicians don’t possess or, indeed, even understand. They treat the masses as dimwits, incapable of understanding the complex nature of things they, the elite, have to deal with.

    Fact: “Nature abhors a vacuum”. Which, in this context, means that Nature adjusts everything to accommodate.

    The ‘quality’ that politicians lack because, mainly their of the arrogant top school/University Degree class and that’s ‘Street Wisdom’.

    Would you believe it.

    On bbbc radio newcastle news at 7 this morning they actually mentioned the Covid vaccine deaths.
    They even had a Vicky Spitt comment.
    They did say that the vaccine has a fatality of only 0.001% but I think this is those who drop dead within a day or two of being vaccinated and not the ones who expire in the weeks or even months following the jab.

    However, it’s amazing that they even mentioned this.
    The great man Mark Steyn has been going on about this for over a year so they have some catching up to do.

      Lisa Shaw: Presenter’s death due to complications of Covid vaccine


      Scans showed she had suffered a haemorrhage in the brain and after her condition deteriorated, part of her skull was removed to try and relieve the pressure inside her head.

      Her condition continued to worsen and despite more surgery and treatments, she died on 21 May.


      • NameNotNumber says:

        That would reflect what happened to my sister in law who, although not dying, has been left paralysed down one side of her body, unable to talk and permanently disabled. The part of her skull that was removed in an operation will be replaced soon but she will never be the same person.
        At least my niece only had her arm paralysed for a month and my nephew has only had to have a stent placed in a vein to relieve pressure on his heart. Another brother in law only suffered badly with shingles.
        Oh yes, and my father died at the age of 96 years in a local care home, deprived of family visits for months. NEVER AGAIN.

    #1 he dared tweet that a beggar approached him with a chipNpin machine like the market traders use.

    It’s almost £2000 per week for 8 hours
    that’s £250 per hour
    or it might be £125 for each 30 min slot
    It does seem a good deal, but I guess most high profile people are paid for their TV slots.

      GBnews started by employing Labour politicians like Gloria
      This lefty tweeter’s point is that Labour was rightwing cos it was full of Blairites
      but to me it just proves Lab/Con are the same socialist party

      Anderson was suspended by Labour his direct action.
      Travellers kept trashing council land and council did nothing except expensive cleanups.
      So Anderson paid for a digger to block the site with boulders so travellers couldn’t come back.
      The council got him served with some kind of asbo
      so Labour suspended him.
      Then Labour tweeters make out he was suspended for anti-gypsy racism.
      He does seem genuine to me, a person who joined Labour to help people, but then matured and realised Labour had been captured by Remainers so he switched to Conservative.

    We can overcome this impasse! Let’s Move Forward! “Enough for the Many, Enough for the Few”.

    It seems to me that Labour have lost (democratically@40%) but act as though they have won and the Conservatives have won (democratically@42.4%) but are waiting to lose, rather than take power and getting on with it.

    So I suggest rather than this continuing this tiring political, we take this problem further a field. Venezuela is praised by some Labour Members as a socialist dream, along with Cuba, South Africa and China. So we do a ‘wealth transfer’ of people.

    All members of Labour Party with families (483,000 Labour Members March2017) can transfer to one of the countries that signs up for this great experiment. In response, people from the socialist countries who no longer want the socialist dream, because they are living it, can come to the UK – trying to keep it one for one as close as possible – same skill would be great but this won’t be completely possible.

    We run this for 10 years and see where we get to. Socialist get to build their socialist dream in a socialist country, possibly with sunnier weather. The people who have had enough of the socialist dream can come to the UK to work hard and improve the UK.

    So BBC – please tell us what ‘Far Right ‘ means …..prefacing the description of anything or any one as ‘far right ‘ is not ‘News ‘ it is a subjective adjective …

    Funny to hear the BBC take an interest in mass protest — usually hushed up if you’re out on the streets of the UK angry about asylum hotels or lockdowns that destroyed livelihoods or the complete abuse of medical freedoms. Even more so to be talking about a national story, with Arthanayake and Sarkar having spent a good chunk of their careers telling us this country doesn’t really have one, and it’s a bad thing we do because it’s full of oppression.

      The Trusted News Initiative Lawsuit
      One of the most recent lawsuits is the antitrust lawsuit against the Trusted News Initiative (TNI). I and several other journalists and news organizations that have been censored during the pandemic are also plaintiffs in this lawsuit. As explained by Kennedy:

      “The Trusted News Initiative lawsuit applies antitrust laws against this really shocking agreement made at the onset of the pandemic, initiated by the BBC.

      The BBC … is not officially a government agency. It’s a government-supported network that is supposed to have walls between itself and the government, but recent scandals in Britain have exposed how closely the BBC works with the British Intelligence Agency, MI5, particularly in censoring information on certain subjects, including public health.

      This is now well-established. We don’t know how much the British Intelligence Agency had to do with kicking off the TNI, but the BBC approached a dozen top news organizations in the United States, including The New York Times and The Washington Post … and the social media networks … proposing they all censor information that did not comport with government proclamations during the pandemic.”

      Importantly, a memorandum by the BBC states that independent news sites are “existential competitors” and a threat to the mainstream media business model and must be crushed.

      Eliminating “competition” (which we’re not) was the entire purpose behind TNI, so the basis for the lawsuit is that TNI is violating the Sherman Antitrust Act. As explained by Kennedy, the BBC is using its market power and illegal collaboration with other leading market actors to crush smaller competitors.

      Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a procedure where the female genitals are deliberately cut, injured or changed, but there’s no medical reason for this to be done.

      It’s also known as female circumcision or cutting, and by other terms, such as Sunna, gudniin, halalays, tahur, megrez and khitan, among others.
