    As is the wont of Senora O’Blene, after a moderate intake of tinctures before the midday comestibles, an erudite comment emerged while I was serving lunch…

    “How do you think the Spencers feel about Charlie being King with Camilla then…”!

    I was somewhat taken aback, the sauteed fish began to suffer from overheating, my glass was stubbornly empty, and I realised that I hadn’t seen a single item in the press about what Diana’s family all felt about the new arrangement! (I’m talking about Diana’s Paternal/Maternal family, not necessarily about her kids).

    On checking, as expected, the awful, trashy beeboid stuff they fill their kiddish website with didn’t mention the issue, but a bit more came from some sort of babble on some sort of a website called Bookface, or Twatter…

    If my dear sister had been treated like this, I might have become more than a little unhappy to say the least!

    As usual, beeboids ignore real stories and never actually do any journalism, they just fart around with their sad little opinions.



    • Mrs Kitty says:

      Given Diana’s brother Earl Spencer’s track record I don’t think he would speak, I’ve read that both boys are close to her sisters and one of them (i forget which) said when Charles and Camilla got married that Diana would just want the boys to have a loving and stable relationship with their father and to be treated well by Camilla. From all accounts there were tensions ( like any family) at first but over time had settled into one of mutual respect until a certain woman appeared , now as far as Henry is concerned all bets are off.


      • Scroblene says:

        Very true, Mrs Kitty…

        It should feel a bit strange to the Spencers, that their relationship with the current king is only a connection by marriage, whereas when William gets the job, it’ll be a straight blood relationship!

        I guess it’s all happened before, but as history wasn’t my best subject, someone will put me right, hopefully…

    I’ve been very interested in the monologue regarding the EU by Michael Portillo that you will hear repeated on GB News regularly.

    He says that although he has Spanish descent and has lived in Spain as well as travelling extensively in Europe, he is a profound Eurosceptic. Someone who we might consider to be a potential natural Europhile. He says that the differences between Britain and European countries as well as between European countries are unbridgeable.

    It is something that I have always argued. We are completely different to any European country. Most EU countries have been authoritarian, Police States or been occupied by one in recent times. Spain under Franco was in many ways the worst of the lot. Look at the bureaucracy that exists in France and Italy for example. There’s no doubt that the State is in control of its citizens lives far more than exists in the UK.

    Let’s thank God we’re out of the EU.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Flotsam – I disagree in the degree of state control imposed in citizens in the UK and EU statelets . What freedom is there in the UK ? Cameras everywhere – transport / movement control rapidly being imposed – a one party state – huge state bureaucracy- taxation without representation – welfare state dependency ….. for starters ..


      • harry142857 says:

        My simple analogy of the EU.

        Every month 10 people meet up for a few drinks in the pub. The four ‘richest’ mugs pay for the drinks all night. It’s such a good night out they miss the last bus home. So, to add insult to injury the ‘four’ have to pay for the 10 taxis home. Not only that, one of the ‘six’ asks if they can bring their skint mate along for the next night out. A few years later, it’s a 25 person event funded by 4.


        • Doublethinker says:

          You are forgetting the effect of the Euro. I don’t know how to work its effect into your pub analogy but the Euro makes Germany richer and most of the other countries poorer in perpetuity.
          The EU is a club run by the liberal left globalist elite in order to secure their power and to prevent their overthrow by democracy eg Brexit. Consequently the EU must not allow Brexit to be a success and neither must the British representatives of the liberal globalist elite, the Remoaners, hence the sabotage of Brexit we have seen from most of our politicians and Civil Servants.


      • Flotsam says:

        I agree. Britain’s authorities have become more bureaucratic and controlling, we are less free than ever. The rot really started under Bliar. The public sector grew and became more powerful under Bliar and the EU and has continued into the Tory era. We are now out of the EU and have the opportunity to be free and put the public sector back in their box. Will we?


        • Scroblene says:

          Quote for the day…

          “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

          Amen to that…


  3. Flotsam says:

    The asylum seeker boats have to stop, but how? I think a fairly brutal solution has to be applied. A fleet of lifeboat size boats should be bought, about 20 of them. Simply, once a rubber boat is picked up on radar a patrol boat blocks its path for as long as necessary for it to return to France.


    • Doublethinker says:

      The only viable solution is something like an internment camp from which the only way out is for them to volunteer to be repatriated. There is zero possibility of them being given asylum or even the chance to apply for it. The conditions in the camp aren’t inhumane but are very basic and there is no contact with the outside world. The message is if you come here you go in a fairly unpleasant camp for years and can’t get out unless you agree to go home. In effect you waste years of your life with zero chance of improving it.

      We can’t sink the boats . The outcry would be enormous and be followed by international sanctions. We can’t push them back to France without drowning them and that would lead to the same outcome as sinking them.
      The French who could stop this very easily if they wanted to , see it as part of Operation Punishment forBrexit. That may change if Le Pen wins but that is four long years away .

      All of the above is unlikely under the Tories and absolutely impossible under Labour. If the government of our country won’t do what we want then we need to resort to civil disobedience. Otherwise we are condemned to being overrun by aliens. It’s already very very late in the day.


    • Mrs Kitty says:

      The problem with that is the same one the French have, the channel hoppers threaten to dump the obligatory child onboard over if the french go near them knowing that they will contact the border farce to pick them up.
      My solution although appearing much harsher after about 10/15 boats maybe more effective. Small drones controlled from a secret location ( stop protestors and agitators) with cameras and enough explosive to ensure sinking of small boats in French waters then they have a choice drown or be picked up by the french, people will stop giving the smugglers money and the government can disclaim all knowledge.


  4. Sluff says:

    Normally if you pay for a product or service and do not receive it, you have recourse to get your money back, at least.

    Now the junior doctors are ending their strike, the nurses are about to start again and apparently there will be no cover in A and E or Cancer wards.

    We are paying the thick end of £200 bn a year plus about £50 bn in future pension benefits, all out of our taxes, for a service we are patently not getting. The unions as per normal in nationalised industries are blackmailing the public.

    I want my money back.,


  5. Fedup2 says:

    You know how we rightly slag the state funded BBC ? Well I thought I’d catch the ‘France 24’ 10 pm news – the Big Story of Riots after the Macron victory got scant coverage – I guess that’s because it is ‘state funded ‘….


    • Doublethinker says:

      In the UK I think we have a unique situation. Rather than the BBC doing the governments bidding the government does the BBC’s bidding. Or more accurately the BBC and all of our recent governments have shared the same basic set of beliefs , liberal globalism.
      I suspect that this is true in France. If Marine Le Pen is elected President the French media will attack her relentlessly if she implements the anti globalist agenda she promises to.

    A nice British Heart Foundation advert, showing a little girl playing football after her clot shot, which causes her to collapse suddenly, as the clot enters the heart, causing a sudden heart attack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRJ3rFQ6U5s

    The government employed behavioural psychologist told the little girl “Ring-a-ring o’ roses, A pocket full of posies. A-tishoo! A-tishoo! We all fall down if we don’t get the jab”

    However, all the little girls who did “fall down” were jabbed.

    Periods: Menstrual cycle shame ‘hurts mental health’

    Is there no limit to how unfair life is to women ?.

    Not at the BBC it seems.

    That assertive quotation as the headline is not the result of any study. It is a statement by one person. This one:


    Who said: Molly Fenton said embarrassment linked to girls’ periods could affect them “emotionally, physically and mentally”.

    Molly is 20. How many people seek out 20 year olds for psychiatric advice ?. Perhaps the BBC should have added their ‘Without providing evidence’ to it. Oh I forgot, that’s only when it’s convenient for the agenda.

    The BBC use this ‘assertive statement in quotes’ method of lying a lot these days. It’s intended to make a single persons opinion appear as actual fact. They have been doing it in overdrive for the Ukraine war.

    Later we get:
    ‘Kate Shepherd Cohen says it is “not acceptable for anyone to not be aware of the menstrual cycle and the impact that it has on society”‘

    Really ?.

    Unfortunately the article doesn’t extend that principle further to these women treating men like sh1t during their periods. They deserve it anyway for not understanding according to this article.

    Brought to you by yet another BBC narcissist who looks like she hates men and wants everyone to know she was on TV:

      I wonder what the effect of the ridiculous tourist trip by paddy obiden will be in Northern Ireland ? When will the next ‘terrorist attack be ? This weekend ? Now that the false president has laid out his support for the Republican cause – dislike for Northern Ireland / Britain perhaps he has set back peace / politics there some way –
      But I’m English and in London and haven’t been to Belfast for a while . …

      I thought I heard Biden hint that he was too old for a second term . Certainly his faculties – even reading the autocue – barely held up . No wonder they never let the press near him and the liberal press shame themselves by allowing this without comment …

    • Ian Rushlow says:

      And there in a nutshell is a big part of the problem. There are now more female than male doctors. Naturally they want to have families. But when they do so, they cease being able to work full time. Typically, they switch to part-time work, spending 2 or 3 days a week in the GP surgery. Which means that two doctors now have to be trained and employed to provide the required level of coverage, or expensive locums are hired to fill the gaps. It also means that it is no longer usually possible for a patient to see their regular or preferred doctor – the concept no longer applies and you see (if you are lucky) whoever is available.

      None of the above is judgemental, it simply describes the the (unforeseen) consequences of the generational transition from predominantly full-time, lifetime career male doctors, to part-time, female doctors whose career often lasts 10-20 years and is interwoven with raising children. As described to me by a good friend who is a doctor, female and Asian.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Ian – I understand that the majority of teachers now are the standard version lefty females . The boy children don’t have much contact with men as they are all paedos . Mum dumped dad so no ‘model ‘ there either .. really going well ….
        But I do like the attitude of not being able to afford kids – but a very minority view …


      • Sluff says:

        Excellent post Ian. A factor wholly absent from discourse in general and the useless bBBC in particular, as they salivate over waiting lists.

        We periodically hear about initiatives to encourage more girls and women to take up Maths and Engineering.

        We NEVER hear a word about initiatives to get more boys and men to take up veterinary science, medicine, or dentistry, to name but three. I suppose such issues are beyond the capability of the BBC’s ‘investigative journalists’. I mean, where on earth would you find relevant data?

    BBC Desperation Editorial #456732


    It is ongoing but interesting to follow in terms of establishment politico-media posturing.

    Clearly a blatant pr punt by both ‘sides’, rallying extremes from inevitable ‘sides’.

    On social media some commenters are offering possible context that may or may not be true, but has been left unverified on bbc social media when not raised in editorial.

    I am, as ever, interested in facts.

    Clearly a delicious hoo haa serving all concerned, and not to be left alone.

    When it broke I was trying to understand the legal position, and am still none the wiser.

    As it stands, the BBC appears to feel the police and prosecution case needs an outrage boost, but framing the ‘story’ around losing an industry award being withdrawn comes as weak as Bud Lite.

    Long story short, no evidence edition

    You join us this morning as our press report how our nurses have just applied the cold spoon treatment to us patients who may have had momentary rising hopes that the NHS might some day soon get back to some state approaching normality, or – heaven forbid – something approaching efficiency.

    To be honest this bulge of optimism only ever amounted to what one might term a semi. A minor rush of blood to the head.

    You do understand what we mean by the cold spoon treatment, right?

    Nurses to target A&E in most extreme strike yet (Telegraph) – we’ll postpone our appointments with casualty then? How does that work? The rot seemed to set in when they started calling it A&E rather than Casualty.

    Nurses set for more strikes (Times)

    The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper boldly references the underlying politics involved – the obvious fact that the NHS is institutionally (structurally as we say these days) very much Labour Party territory: Nurses strike to hit cancer care and A&E as Sunak pay offer rejected

    The Guardian go with a resounding ‘could‘: Nursing strike could go on until Christmas – how will this affect the price of turkey and plum puddings?

    Nursing rather than Nurses? One detects something like the passive voice employed there by the Gruan in their headline attempting to absolve our nurses of personal responsibility perhaps?

    Says who, anyway?: Sources… (Guardian) – I say sage and onion to their sources

    Doc Holiday

    Junior doctors’ leader apologises for booking holiday during strike (Independent)

    Or alternatively, did he perhaps arrange the strike so as to coincide with his holiday? There’s a thought that never seems to occur to our teachers. You won’t catch them striking during any school hols

    Teachers’ strike dates: When and where are schools affected? Members of the National Education Union in England will strike on Thursday 27 April and Tuesday 2 May. (BBC) – not over Easter or on the May Bank Holiday Monday then? Still, it makes a nice long weekend for them by taking the Tuesday 2nd off.

    Our Lenny Henry (he’s been quiet lately) emulates the Guardian this morning with a resounding emphatic ‘could‘: ‘The Windrush scandal could have happened to my family’ (Times) – coulda, woulda, shoulda? No, no, no… we enjoyed little Lenny and his Frank Spencer impressions and his sketch show in the 80s “Katanga, Katanga, my friends!”

    In fact there’s little in the way of substantiated verified factual news on offer anywhere in our media these days – especially on those big issues of the day: Covid will stay a mystery, says Chinese expert (Telegraph) – but… surely… The Science…?

    The true origins of Covid may never be revealed, according to the Chinese official who was in charge of the country’s pandemic response… “It’s too sensitive, too politicised… long story short, no evidence” (Telegraph)

    So we’ll just have to leave that one hanging, as it were.

  14. Foscari says:

    I have written to ” BIG BROTHER” at the BBC be it be a he , she or an it ,with
    a suggestion of a way out of NEVER showing the image of a white
    male in a feature on the cost of living crisis .Or in fact ANY
    public interest topic.
    First of all one would have to know if Getty’s who provide the
    BBC with these images have any white male models working
    for them. It is possible they don’t. Of course that would be
    a major problem. BUT if they only had one. Just occasionally
    they could use him looking at a utility bill , or a bank statement
    or prices in the supermarket , wearing a BRA !!
    I reiterate I wrote to BIG BROTHER saying that this for sure
    would solve all the understandable problems of diversity,
    inclusiveness, positive discrimination , quotas etc.
    A white male model wearing a bra . Don’t you think that this is a great idea? Why hasn’t anybody else thought about it before?

      I think what is required is an independent contact line where children exposed to teachers like this rat can report the incident anonymously in a similar manner to child line. Sure there will be some revenge reports but if for instance the same vile rat pops up from multiple children then it should be reported to the education authority concerned to look into.

      The country needs to weed out these bullying thugs before they have total control.


  16. JohnC says:

    So today we have ‘Periods: Menstrual cycle shame ‘hurts mental health” by a 20 year old girl who knows nothing about anything as a front page UK news item.

    But ‘Zaian Aimable-Lina: Boy guilty of Croydon stabbing murder’ is nowhere to be seen.

    It’s yet another case of a boy too young to be identified stabbing another boy to death. And yet again the BBC write a short facts-only report without batting an eyelid. This is a horrendous reflection on our society – but as it doesn’t fit the agenda, the BBC just don’t care and try to brush it under the carpet. The Left truly are the most appalling of people. Their double-standards are simply off the scale – but they are completely brazen and shameless with them.

    So much for ‘Black Lives Matter’.

    Here’s the boy who got stabbed. I think we know roughly what the boy who did it looks like.

  17. Jeff says:

    On a whim this morning, I picked up the Daily Mail . Let’s be frank, it’s not a great paper these days. There’s a cringing piece about Boris’s airhead, bottle blonde, supporter, Nadine Dorries, something about creepy “trans” model, Dylan Mulvaney and stacks of adverts for holidays none of us can afford.

    However, tucked away on their entertainment page was a little interview with veteran actress, Diane Keen. To chaps of my vintage she’ll be remembered as the totty who turned up in things like The Cuckoo Waltz, The Sweeney and The Shillingbury Blowers. She was a real corker. Petite, big brown eyes, a lovely figure and a gorgeous…ahem..anyway…I digress…

    She’s now76 and still appearing on stage…good on her…In typical, safety first Mail “journalistic style”, they cover themselves by telling us that the actress has some views on “colour blind casting” that will raise eyebrows.

    She found Bridgerton “Odd” and went on to tell us she wasn’t enthusiastic about …”having a coloured actor playing James Bond. “If he (Ian Fleming) had wanted Bond to be African, Chinese or whatever, would he not have written that?” Yes, indeed!

    She was particularly nonplussed at the casting of a black actress as Anne Boleyn. “It doesn’t make sense.” she says.

    I can’t believe that there are many sane people who disagree with anything she’s said, but…most of this woke nonsense isn’t sane, otherwise we wouldn’t have BAME actors starring in Dickens, or as historical royals and most incredibly, leading William the Conqueror’s army at The Battle of Hastings. Utter insanity!

    It was refreshing to hear someone willing to tell the truth.

    There’s not many left…

      Stew, for some of us (ie me) it really does matter if there are even a few nuts in something that says it hasn’t. But equally infuriating is when manufacturers say, ‘may include nuts’ when they really don’t.

When I asked the staff I was told ‘just in case’.

        The ECU will use any semantic trick it can.

        Seems vaguely exclusionary for many the BBC claims to serve.

      On either ITV or BBC London this evening there was coverage of a smallish anti ULEZ demo which led to an unchallenged throwaway remark by someone of ‘4000 premature deaths’.

      Have a look at this very useful website and try and work out why Sad Dick Khan is now so extremist about air pollution.


      Not obvious is it? Which is why I don’t think ULEZ has anything to do with pollution and everything to do with a) socialists hating the independence and liberty that the motor car brings to private citizens, and b) a desperate attempt to rescue TFL’s appalling finances by jerrymandering poor people with old cars to spend their money on more TFL public transport

      PS is the Imperial College referenced as the source of pollution-deaths statistics by any chance the same one that produced the dire domesday covid statistics that forecast virtually mass extinction unless we locked down indefinitely?
      Just as I thought. Yes.

    A thought on the Grand National ‘protest’.

    Our Gestapo goes out of their way to assist ‘protestors’ in their illegal occupation of busy roads sometimes even stopping the traffic to escort them onto the carriageway where innocent people going about their business are delayed for hours. The gestapo do very little to remove them sometimes even offering refreshments.

    Contrast that to Aintree where the “Sport of Kings” was taking place, and it’s a very different story with the Gestapo doing all they can to prevent peaceful protest.

    Something strike you as double standards here? If they can prevent peaceful protest at a race meeting then why can’t they prevent the roads being closed in the same way?

    Of course people will applaud the loons being arrested, but that is failing to see the bigger picture of the plebs not mattering to the establishment.

      This incident shows the problem the woke plod create for themselves – selective enforcement of laws – a kind of self appointed judge – approval – of some protests and not others .

      It has added to the degradation of the reputation of plod – which some – such as me – see as an untrustworthy alien non presence …… and I know – as a taxpayer – will get a third class response – if any response at all .

      Personally I wish the national had been voided . It would have saved my 50p E/w ….. but ITV seemed to have enjoyed it – with AP turning into a racing version of Roy Keane …

    Refugee promo piece online:

    “A Ukrainian woman who came to the UK as a refugee said she hoped her guided tours of Liverpool during Eurovision will help people “de-stress” […] Since arriving in the UK she used her fluency in English to help other Ukrainians settle in the UK. She now plans to run free Ukrainian language cultural tours of Liverpool.”

    A quick look reveals she has years of previous ‘good connections’ with the BBC, having lived in the UK before and worked as a journalist. Here she is requesting the removal of a dissenter who dares to call into question the integrity of Ukrainian democracy. When the reality check team aren’t at their desks, I guess you can always ask a BBC gruppenfuhrer to step in and get rid of wrong thought.

    Authoritarianism. Assange and mandated medical procedures. Violations of The Habeas Corpus Act 1640 and the Nuremberg Code.

    The only supporters of the Nuremberg Code in Parliament are Andrew Bridgen and the Tories, Sir Christopher Chope, Danny Kruger, Sir Edward Leigh, Sir Desmond Swayne, Sir Greg Knight and Sir Jeremy Wright. The only Labour supporter of the Nuremberg Code is Graham Stringer. The rest of Labour are corporate socialists or what Mussolini called, Fascists.

    A very nice takedown of the bBC Antisocial program and their pet ‘damn-lies’ statistician Spiegelhalter:


    Specifically this was the program with the hit piece on Bridgen MP. There was no balance it was pure edited bile from start to finish.

    1984: The Ministry of Truth. It purports to be focused on the pursuit of truth when in fact, the ministry is concerned with erasing the truth of the past and present and replacing it with whatever the Party deems “correct.” Those in charge of the ministry decide what “truth” is. The slogans of the Ministry of Truth are “WAR IS PEACE”, “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY” & “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”

    2023: The Trusted News Initiative.

    “‘typical hypocrisy’ Sir Keir Starmer convicted just 55% of sex offenders in final year as nation’s top prosecutor”



  45. Zephir says:

    “Just 55 per cent were found guilty in 2013 when he quit as head of the Crown Prosecution Service — down from 61 per cent the year before.

    Latest Ministry of Justice figures, meanwhile, show the current sex offender conviction rate is at almost 81 per cent. “
