In Re the Raab case .
If there’s one thing I can agree with Ken Livingston when he was Mayor of London ,
It was an interview where he said that civil servants were not so much anti Labour or anti Conservative, but anti work .
I always say that the senior civil servants are self serving, indolent , devious, lying b@$¥€r§ whose loyalty should be publicly questioned. Not something you will see the BBC doing .
Why should they “ speak truth to power “ when they speak with a forked tongue? What do they know of the truth , the whole truth and nothing but the truth ?
Why should they give “ confidential “ advice to a minister or politician? That means SECRET advice, which we the public don’t know about , which may not be the best advice for the ordinary Joe in the country . Judging by past performance they have never, ever , given good advice .
The BBC is taking the line that these senior civil servants can’t defend themselves publicly . As these people like to work in the shadows, wielding power but never accountable then they can take the sugar with the sand . If they want openness about the Dominic Raab case , we want openness about what they get up to as they go about their shenanigans within Whitehall .
Let’s have names for a start . Who are they and what are their qualifications or expertise to advise ministers about the complex running of this country.
And I don’t just mean their academic qualifications with degrees in arts , science or humanities or whatever.
What do they really know about the running of this country and where does they’re loyalty lie .
In my experience it’s that they are ignorant and venal .
Nibor , I too have had exposure to civil servants at the top end and found them less than impressive. One thing which must stop is their expectation of gongs just for being in a particular job .
This of course will never happen because they feather their own nest and control the rules . The blue labour regime is not brave enough to take them on and will fear them even more now.
Maybe the blue labours will realise that ‘inquiries ‘ and worthless other than kicking issues into the long grass – but sooner or later the inquiry report will bite them .
Trouble is they are all swamp dwellers and cannot see what those outside can see .
The Raab case is an excellent example of where ourt democracy is now with the self-serving Leftist BBC and civil service.
Bercow was a bully. Not the ‘work driver’ kind like Raab, the nasty little shit kind.
Yet the BBC and everyone else turned a blind eye and gave this disguting little goblin their full support as house speaker simply because he helped for their own agenda.
That is the stand-out thing for this whole affair for me. Yet nobody in the media will ever breathe a word about it because they know just how rotten and corrupt they all are.
That is what our democracy is for me now. No democracy at all. It needs tearing down and rebuilding because it is no longer fit for purpose – just like the BBC and OFCOM.
Maybe that is going to be Biden’s greatest gift as he leads the Western world by the nose (and bribery and blackmail) to war with Russia.
Normal Conservatives had a real chance of sorting out the civil service when Cummings was around, but huge egos from the nut-nuts stopped all that, and here we are, in an absolute jungle of leftie crap!
Luckily, I’m so old I really don’t give a monkey’s any more, but I try and support good citizens who actually do care…
Some called out Sopes on his pathetic Bercow weasel.
Here is a fellow ex limelight slob… Bunter.
And the organisation he used to front up.
And a current BBC superweasel..
A U.K. with this lot shaping everything… explained.
Apart from the last sentence I agree with you. I think that in the UK our politics serves the interests of about 10% of the population. The rest of us are treated with contempt. It’s much the same right across the West. How long the elite can hold the rest of us down is the big question.
Their first defence line is the MSM who spin us the news and alternatively feed us bromides with their drama or try to scare us to death with Covid , Climate emergencies or Putin etc. In the UK this is protected by OFCOM but it’s not so easy in the USA.
The second defence line is just to cheat , distort the voting process as we saw in the US in 2020. Or to insert their favoured candidate without an election as with Sunak.
The third line is to pretend that the heavily politicised judicial system is still impartial and incorruptible. They then use this system to penalise any thing or anyone that they don’t like and then turn round and tell us that there can’t be any argument because the impartial body found such and such guilty, eg Rabb or Tommy R.
How long these three defence lines can hold on for , years certainly but perhaps not decades. Already the likes of Musk on Twitter is opening up a crack . But if these cracks begin to widen and the power and security of the new elite is seriously threatened how far will they go to protect themselves? History tells us that elites seldom give up power and privilege without a struggle and a high body count. It might get bumpy!
Penny Mordaunt MP in an unhinged smear against Andrew Bridgen:
What the hell is wrong with posting the autopsy report about a 14 year-old horrifically killed by the clot-shot?
Why are other MPs not shouting this out from the rooftops?
Do they have no empathy?
Is that the same Penny Mordaunt who is a friend of Bill Gates, the chap who wrote the introduction to and endorsed her book? The same Bill Gates who has substantial business interests in making and promoting vaccines and experimental medical treatments, and who is a major financier of the World Health Organisation? Or am I confusing them with a totally different Penny Mordaunt and Bill Gates?
‘By their friends, ye shall know them’.
If the “Conservative”, Labour-lite Tories, want to know why they’re so pathetic, they need look no further than this gormless dopey woman. She is the epitome of what’s wrong with them.
One of the nonsensical things she “believes”, or says she does…
is that any random bloke who puts on a dress is a woman. Yes, of course he is…
If I stuck a “Spirit of Ecstasy” mascot on my battered old Skoda, it wouldn’t make it a Rolls Royce. But if I stick a blonde wig on my balding pate and ask you to call me Jenny, then you’re supposed to believe it…or at least pretend to.
The “Conservative” Parliamentary Party I despise and despair over. They’re choc full of people like her.
This woman is out of her depth when she’s swimming in the shallow end…
After WW2, there was a process of de-nazification in Germany. There needs to be something similar here, a process of de-globalism and de-wokeism, to ensure that such people cannot achieve positions of high office or power. A starting point would be a Truth & Reconciliation Council, to help determine who was acting from their own volition and/or foreign monied influence, as opposed to those who would simply caught in the flow and could be described as naive or innocent.
But Germany lay prostrate before the occupying powers. The allies could chose exactly what they wanted to do without any thought about what the German reaction might be. The opposite is true in our present situation, our enemy holds all the power and dewoking will require that we attain complete power over the current ruling elite.
A few odd BBC articles today. The first was an article on Ukraine which is 99% describing the heroes killing all the Russians 1% between the lines telling us Russia is winning.
But this one was the oddest:
Chris Kaba: Men accused of murder plot with Met shooting victim
Right at the top of the article we get this picture and caption:
‘Chris Kaba, who was shot by police in September, had been due to become a father’
Immediately I think – oh, another innocent, smiling, decent father-to-be ‘enrichment-who is black’ unfairly killed by ‘State police-who are white’.
The BBC even call him a ‘victim’ in the headline.
Then I read a bit further and I discover the actual story is that he and his group tried to murder another ‘enrichment’ and his ‘pals’ are on trial.
So in fact he is a murdering piece of sh1t. Shame on you BBC. You have no conscience and no ethics.
I spot a tweet from @chooselove
Bio : Choose Love
Fundraising Organisation supporting refugees and displaced people globall
“Chris Kaba, a 24-year-old Black man who was a musician and due to be a father,
was shot and killed by police in London.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris Kaba’s family, friends and loved ones.
We hope they get the justice and accountability they deserve.
I presume they hope the VICTIMS of him and his gang get justice and accountability too
..innocent until proven guilty etc.
Norman Brennan retired police voice
says “Chris Kaba 24yrs shot by police was alleged to have have been involved in another shooting;
already convicted of one
& in a car seen leaving scene of another shooting day before!
Our Brother Exemplary Police Firearms officer now Suspended 6 months”
and asks why the @IOPC take YEARS to investigate
The conversation hints that the Kaba family don’t want the bodycam footage to be be seen by the public.
The bbc have moved up a gear No longer content with putting a positive spin on all things wokey, they are now preparing us for upcoming news. There is a war kicking off in sudan, and it’s getting the sort of coverage I would expect (Black man victim, etc.).
They have now taken to describing Khartoum as “Vibrant”. Presumably, this is so when the next bunch of tens of thousands stroll up the beach, the conversation will be :-
“And where are you from?”
“Khartoum, it’s very vibrant”
“Oh, you’ll fit right in here, we love that sort of thing”
Of course, since the invaders have all thrown their papers away, since Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc. are no longer top trumps in the victim game, the whole boatload will become Sudanese.
I guess that the border farce are unable to enquire where these illegals come from, for the same reason that Lady Hussey had such an evil, vitriolic, wokist attack for asking a Barbadian where she really came from…
Wales sounds awesome.
What if nobody is gender neutral ?. Does it never get used ?.
Reminds me of the BBC article a while back on how a transsexual boy/girl/thing could not use the toilets all day at school because it didn’t have one for him/her/it.
And he/she/it couldn’t use the disabled one just in case someone disabled wanted to use it. Must be a LOT of disabled students at his school.
Or – of course – it was all a complete lie dictated to him by the BBC reporter to get the article they intended to write before they even spoke to him/her/it.
In summary, all of them…
The clue these days to warn us we are being lied to is when the key phrase is in quotation marks – as in ‘very rare’. It means it’s not a fact at all – it’s what someone said. And that ‘someone’ is usually totally biased.
The BBC do it a LOT in the main headlines these days and it’s basically a lie. They want you to think one persons convenient opinion is fact.
‘Allegedly’, ‘reportedly’, sources have revealed they are accused of….
I suspect that this will wind up like hospital consultations where there always has to be an extra ‘witness’ especially if there is a ‘wimmin’ in the room.
This means that all interactions by ministers with snivel serpents will need an extra minister in the room as a ‘witness’. So double the size of the car parks, offices, canteens, cost of wages etc etc.
Oh and get a monstrous regiment of lawyers in to deal with case load. This whole problem fueled by media and lawyer witch-hunts.
In other news I note the CBI are under fire and shut down until June because of two rape allegations. No connection of course to the damning report they produced about the disastrous consequences of going ahead with a lock-down on the country. No siree!
BBC: 4, Tories: 0
Their ‘Live Feed’ now has the power to lay pressure on politicians so great that they are forced to resign. Even when they didn’t do anything wrong.
It is the greatest abuse of position and power for a political agenda I think I have ever seen. Yet OFCOM remain silent.
(To the pedants: the 4 is approximate. I can’t be bothered to check just how many they have assasinated).
And once they’ve planted the lie, the innocent party has to ‘insist’ that he wasn’t guilty, but by then, the damage has been done!
Couldn’t the beeboid’s new kid ‘researcher’ whom they’ve poached from ceebeebies compile a list of these so-called euphemisms for utter lies, so that other dim kids will be able to understand the issues when they eventually grow up?
On second thoughts, we really need a proper, private organisation in the MSM to do this, not a government-paid bunch of wokelets.
“This report deepens the analysis undertaken in 2020 on the functioning of the ECHR. It finds that cases of conflicts of interest between judges and NGOs have increased, even though the Court has adopted some measures to remedy this. The report also exposes a series of structural problems affecting the Court’s impartiality and demonstrates that it is not up to the standards of other major international and national courts. In support of the ECHR reform process, this report presents a series of recommendations to address the problems identified.”
As a principal funder, does George Soros and/or his ‘Open Society’ org get a mention? Yes.

R4TODAY tomorrow Thought For The Day will feature a sceptic calling out the mad Global Warming cult
.. /sarc Well it would in a fair world.
Today TfD was someone laying it on thick about Climate Change and need to act now and that we have done nothing so far
then in the last 4 seconds he tacked on a mention of the nun Julian of Norwich and hazelnuts, so he could claim his Climate Propaganda is Christian.
Woke up this morning wondering if Ramadan/Eid would be on the front page of the BBC News website today ..
Scored a hat trick !
Not just one article, not just two articles, but three !
( as at 0847 )
It’s changed slightly, but the plates of slop they show at the bottom of their page resemble a couple of ‘pavement pizzas’, and all the other stuff is available at any food bank, made from intentionally shortened sell-by dates, so the normal purchasing public are paying through the nose for the supermarkets to chuck all their old stuff on the freebie shelves in the street, and that my friends is why the cost of lockdown is just untrue where food is concerned!
I reckon that supermarket prices have increased just to make themselves look good by these fake giveaways, while of course, their profits increase at the same rate.
Cost of living = cost of freebies.
I listened to Classic FM whilst in the tub yesterday evening only to hear (for the first time) the ad. celebrating Eid and the rich variety of suitable food to be found in Tesco’s. Where do they go from here?
For me, a ‘two-in-one’: Tesco and Classic FM struck off my to visit list.
Twice a day every day next week
on the R4 We ADVERTISE Our Mate’s Book For 15 Minutes SHOW
“As the planet heads towards a future defined by global warming, this book offers up salutary reflections.
Hugh Bonneville reads Peter Frankopan’s epic history on how the changing climate has shaped the rise and fall of civilisations.
Peter Frankopan is Professor of Global History at Oxford University and Senior Research Fellow at Worcester College“
Bonneville is getting the gigs at the BBC eh?
Russian courts, Charlie’s Coronation gig, book readings.
On the Raab business – it seems a good fit for some riffing on “Yes, Minister” or “Yes, Deputy Prime Minister” – but nary a peep afaics.
– wonder why?
It’s a Raab weekend – with the BBC rolling out retired top slime civil servants to plunge the knife into an elected ex minister with impunity – today had a remainer traitor called lord Simon someone who was permanent secretary for changing nothing .
.. maybe everyone should wear body cameras – including bbc journalists ….. obviously there are references now back to Cummings – but you’d need someone who acts like a machine to deal with traitor civil servants without coming unstuck …..
Nothing can change because they run the show and make their own rules …..and are happily pushing the decline ….which is now my theme …..
Shouting is one kind of bullying
Constant subtle coercive control and nudge is another
and that is what the BBC and libmob do
Projection is a libmob characteristic
so that is why they are so vociferous about Raab
The vendetta that dare not speak its name edition
Snow boots or Speedos? No, that’s not a feature headline from the BBC’s online press line-up’s top pick frontpage the Guardian (natch): How to have a healthy sex life. Free 20-page magazine – In fact we guess that what the BBC (probably) admired was the Gruan’s serious measured and politically balanced (sarcasm) take on the big politics story of the week and that Snow boots or Speedos question was raised by the Daily Star (see below).
So there we have it – the characterisation of a self-serving permanent civil service running rings around our politicians, thwarting their initiatives and forcing on ministers those policies – and only those policies – that meet the approval of the permanent civil service – all laid bare and dramatised for us in plain sight decades ago by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn’s classic TV sitcom Yes Minister
And if Yes Minsiter and Sir Humphrey Appleby aren’t the terms most googled by our politics journos this week… then I want to know why.
The FT Weekend snaps a pic of the thwarted Jim Hacker… sorry, Dominic Raab… at the wheel of his car with a thinly disguised gloat of a caption: End of the road… Dominc Raab yesterday after resigning as deputy prime minister. An inquiry said he had been ‘persistently aggressive’ – apparently, they can do you for that these days.
Seems Britain’s top mandarins nowadays object to being bullied. One has to wonder what’s changed in our top public schools since Tom Brown learnt to take it like a man fagging at the hands of Flashman?
Don’t imagine that the FT’s self-satisfied relish at the demise of a ministerial career at the hands of the faceless managerial blob indicates some populist distain for elites. FT style shifts from gloating to gushing for the right sort of politician: ‘She’s given Europe a voice’ Ursula von der Leyen – and it’s not just because she’s a she that she gets an admiring spread in the FT Weekend Magazine – First lady Giorgia Meloni may have given Italy a voice – but she’s not at all to the FT’s taste: Italian authorities under fire after deadly migrant shipwreck; Mussolini’s Grandchildren — the long shadow of fascism in Italy; Pirelli/Sinochem: pressure tactics could blow up on Meloni
There’s a whiff of revenge for Brexit about this everyday story of ministerial resignation. The vendetta that dare not speak its name.
Perhaps for us here in the UK we’re just too close to the action to see it?
An ardent Brexiteer, Mr. Raab is one of a cadre of young politicians who rose to power in the bitter debate over whether Britain should leave the European Union. He was co-author of a book, “Britannia Unchained,” which described a vision of post-Brexit Britain as an agile, low tax, lightly regulated business mecca (New York Times)
The Daily Express would have us throw in our lot with Ukraine but paradoxically hits this nail on the head: Forced out for wanting the best for Britain
The Daily Mail seems to miss the point when it asks: Was this the day Britain became ungovernable? – no, no, no… the deep state would manage to run things just nicely – intrusive so-called emergency alerts to our personal phones and the like – all with or without compliant politicians supposedly at the helm.
One assumes the Mail juxtaposes this dystopian headline as a sort of Last Post bugle call running down of the union jack symbolised by their Exclusive feature headline: Bobby Moore’s 1966 World Cup winning shirt ‘gone missing’
But MrAsI, do you really believe that Brexit was the real casus belli between Raab and his officials?
Row over Spanish forces in Gibralta sank Raab… he bullied a British ambassador said to have secretly proposed putting Spanish boots on the ground during Brexit talks. (Telegraph)
For the left-leaners and pro-Brussels Reamainer titles the story is Raab’s petulance and his failure to take his thrashing at the hands of the office bullies: Raab goes down swinging (Times); Raab officials angry at ‘tone-deaf’ resignation (i Weekend); Raab quits in fury (Guardian); Dominic Raab hits out at ‘activist civil servants’ after resignation (BBC)
If you keep your Eyes Wide Shut you won’t see the hidden hand of the Remainers… there’s a segueway there somewhere coming up…
It’s not all bad news. Our achingly pro-EU employers’ club has been rocked by a delayed reaction #MeToo-style scandal: CBI faces exodus of firms after new rape allegations (Guardian)
Big names quit CBI after new rape allegation… Top business group teeters on brink (FT)
And finally. And on a lighter note. One imagines the Daily Star daily editorial board meeting tends to revolve around their journos glancing out of the window and debating whether for their top story they plump for impending heatwave or big freeze – weather-wise?
This weekend – you’ll laugh – they go with both: The storm before the calm… A -5C mini-freeze with snow… then a heatwave… Artic winds will have us turning the central heating back on before we’re hit with a 24C heatwave.
That’s the first reference I’ve seen to “Yes Minister” …
tomo, “Yeaher, roight”
Having had very limited exposure to the senior Civil Service I still have trouble trying to work out why both Cummings and Raab were caught by it .
They both knew is was an extension of Brussels – they both knew they are socialists with no interest apart from their personal advancement .
With that in mind would it be possible to run a department with either a SPAD to guard against allegations or to always set written objectives with time scales and personal responsibilities ?
The structure of the civil service doesn’t help – permanent secretaries such as Sir Humphrey using standard techniques to defeat new minister or destroy them .
I think those 2 series of ‘yes minister ‘ should be rewatched with the laughter cut out ….that was 50 ? Years ago ….
talking of civil servants
Smear can be dealt with by getting down to specifics and unpicking them
So what you saw in the Musk interview was BBC James Clayton refusing to go into specifics about what hate tweets there’d been
Instead Clayton said ‘ Big orgs say there is hate’ by which he means the ISDglobal report that Marianna and BBC Trending wave around
In a long thread Michael Shellenberger @shellenberger
goes about unpicking them
The fascists @ISDglobal are literally working with Greenpeace to try to censor @jordanbpeterson @BjornLomborg @AlexEpstein and me
Here are the censorship Karens who never interviewed any of us, have refused to be interviewed by us, and are too cowardly to debate
eg What counts as antisemitism?
they say it’s Criticism of the Soros foundation
18 months ago a Spiked article exposed ISDglobal
and Ben Pile did a long thread
They look like “Usless Eaters”.
80% of Twitter were “Usless Eaters”, so Elon Musk sacked them.
Is it just me, or do I see Larry, Curly and Mo?
Some good news:
“Judge throws the book at Just Stop Oil protesters: Eco activists who scaled a bridge over the Dartford Crossing and caused 40 HOURS of gridlock are jailed for five years in record sentence for climate action
Morgan Trowland and Marcus Decker scaled the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge
Their actions forced police to close the road which links Essex and Kent”
They are not British
They travelled across the world to interfere in the economy of a country which is not a Climate Villain
.. they didn’t do Russia or China
New Zealanders fwiw
Obviously the judge is not on the Soros payroll. Or, perhaps, he/she was late for the court or some important gathering as a result of the Defendants’ actions…………
Lord I really hope they do even half that – in a cat A prison …
Scaled a bridge. They could have done everyone a favour by jumping of the bridge
TOADY Watch #1 – if you needed an excuse to not listen to Paddy O’Connell then ….
….. you have one now! Paddy did his usual trail for his Sunday R4 Programme during Saturday Toady. Funny thing, ‘Brexit’ was mentioned: apparently the BBC have been trawling to find someone who’s business has been ruined by Brexit. While I am sad for them I cannot help wondering if it is really true. After all, the BBC wouldn’t lie about that, would they? I am not about to listen to Paddy’s sanctimonious witterings to find out.
What the BBC don’t realise because they are stupid , or don’t tell because they are devious is
A: there will be companies that cannot thrive or will go down because we are not in the EU
B: there will be companies that could not thrive or went down because we were in the EU .
The numbers in B will be greater than the numbers in A .
Therefore we should not be in the EU .
This character use to be quite ‘light’ on being a smug lefty but he obviously fears for his contract so gets on the approved bandwagon . I spotted this years ago and dumped that show – besides am at mass that time …and God wins of a dire BBC lefty –
– he must be due for replacement ( the latter not the former )…
Listening to BBC politics programmes – which I’m doing now out of duty – I notice the pattern is as predicted . Week at Westminster rolls out the likes of David Gauke – a full on Traitor Remainer – who you might recall crowed and crowed before the referendum ‘ election and Lost His Seat – so an ex MP – on the scale of Eddie Balls on the red Labour side ….
It would be useful if there is anyone monitoring more professionally to list those the BBC puts on to support Raab ….but I can’t see a list being formed …. Out of BBC editorial bias …
Will we hear about the barrister who wrote the report? Another friend of starmer ?
Hunley + Groubert have been covering Alec Baldwin’s shooting of Halyna Hutchins pretty much since day one. Groubert has had direct communications with the DA office…
The new prosecution lawyer that’s been parachuted in – is a complete farce…
The Twitter files are *NOT* an isolated case …..
“IRS agents showed up at Matt Taibbi’s home the same day he testified about the Twitter Files.
“That’s Soviet stuff”
They claimed they were chasing up a 5 year old problem
Later someone tweeted Mr. Taibbi has provided the committee with documentation showing his 2018 return had been electronically accepted, and he says the IRS never notified him or his accountants of a problem after he filed that 2018 return more than four-and-a-half years ago.”
Remember Lois Lerner taking “The 5th”….
Taibbi witnessed the fall of the Soviets from the front row in Russia
No small irony that Lerner a past president of the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws.
One wonders what she’s doing now?
(seems like a leopard doesn’t change its spots)
Then there is the black Puerto Rico senator sending an official letter saying he must be jailed for LYING in his testimony.
#1 She failed to send the letter to him
after she showed it to the media
#2 Her accusation is provably false
cos the source she cited the British shyster Medhi Hasan was talking about a Tweet from Taibbi not the testimony
In the tweet made before the testimony Taibbi quoted the name of the org working in government censorship team as CISA saw it written as CIS, because he knew an org called CISA was on the team
he was unaware that the censorship team also included an org CIS
Then Medhi Hasan made an “error” in mixing up the tweet error and the testimony
Then the top Democrat team including the politician Plaskett took Hasan’s tweet as truth, rather than the conressional record
“Oh the BBC is pro Tory”
.. that’s gaslighting
Does the BBC news page ever look like the Daily Telegraph ?
No it’s like the Guardian
Minimal images of white men in a positive light etc.
“How to talk to your parents about climate change”
two female images one with pink hair
Go to the page and there is a photo of another two female, one with pink hair
The third image actually has a white male
The BBC tweet got only 7 Likes !
Oh Marco Silva 🌍@MarcoLSilvatweeted
Great piece by my colleague @GeorginaRannard
I find the lack of engagement telling.
This was a nasty crime, but all murders are.
Why do media folk elect highly specific ones to focus upon?
Then there are those media choose to ‘inspire’ others.
Again, desperately sad, but really not a sensible thing to play up. There are now too many seriously unwell folk around who see their 15′ as the ultimate goal.
One of those very few politicians who deserved a gong – Sir Les Paterson – has passed on . sir Les was one of a kind . He was imitated by someone called barry Humphreys who by coincidence died at the same time . ….
… strangely 2 lady impersonators have died in the last month ….
Things come in 3’s so who is the third after Lily and Edna.
It’s possible the civil snowflakes have done Raab a favour.
There’s a whole load of support for Raab out there and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up being next leader of whatever the Tories have degraded into.
Wouldn’t it be grand if he (or somebody) took on the civil snowflakes and got rid of all the lefties (although that would mean binning about 95% of them)
I used to listen to Raab when he was doing the 0810 Today interview . I thought he dealt with them as well as most – Raab is a lawyer and he was always careful with his words . He showed up the lack of listening skills of meesh and Robinson and our Justin by correcting and challenging . He is also pretty good at the dispatch box against scum rayner …..
But as I wrote before – he should never have got in a position to expose his neck to lefty civil servants …
Will Raab be back as leader of the conservatives in opposition ? Hard to call but maybe too damaged by the msm / swamp …
On the Dominic Raab saga, for some reason he agreed to be interviewed by the BBC. I am sure they were very sympathetic to his plight when he said:
He told the BBC: “What you’ve got the risk of here is a very small minority of very activist civil servants, with a passive aggressive culture of the Civil Service, who don’t like some of the reforms, whether it’s Brexit, whether it’s parole reform, whether it’s human rights reform, effectively trying to block government. That’s not on. That’s not democratic.”
The trouble with the BBC is that THEY ARE part of that very same civil-service. They are the dismal part of everything that makes this once great country awful. They don’t like Raab as he is a threat to their comfy existance.
And its sad to see Rabb go as deputy PM he was worth his salt when faced with the ‘enchanting but dubious’ Angela Raynor at PM Question Time, he won every time. The BBC see this as a terrific victory, another minister nobbled and they could not be more pleased.
Another win for the civil-socialists destroying our country.
Recall recently Hurly Burley Rob tweeting that when he worked at the BBC, he either did not know or assessed his colleagues’ politics as evenly balanced.
Here is LBC colleague Lewis demonstrating this, as have Sopes, BS, O’Brien, etc.
My take on the Raab fiasco – Civil Service & Government ? “Tail and Dog” comes to mind.
The only cure , a proper British Government, The Reform Party…………….. https://www.reformparty.uk/reformisessential
I sent my postal vote in yesterday.
1 vote for Reform.
Is the BBC the Most Corrupt Broadcaster in the World? – By Dr. Vernon Coleman (Answer “YES”)
“The BBC has given us nothing but misinformation and disinformation. They have spread lies and specialised in deception and abuse of the truth tellers”
Can’t recall if this was posted, but as all the BBC now has is casting nasturtiums…
It was posted before so I’ll repeat
Rule : when you make a HUGE claim
you must show HUGE evidence
BBC said protesters were FAR RIGHT
but showed zero evidence
Hey Richard – ya beat me to it. Good for you.
Time for the British Government to push back against the woke sock, puppets . More adds like this are needed to educate the virtue signalling ‘Snowflakes’ …………………
Raking coals now, but Wendy gets a mention, as does IDS and Buzzfeed, with the BBC mixing in company that is serving it poorly.
The Critic article is poor, because it goes for the lazy angle
..’Look at this BBC journo he is thick and unprepared”
Nope if you see the whole transcript, Clayton WAS prepared
eg He knew Musk has been warned by Twitter fact checkers
for saying his family were poorish , when in fact old magazine article quote his father saying he owned an emerald mine.
The thing is BBC and MSM and libmob in general don’t play fair, they rig things,
they hide from debate,
#1 They take interviews and reconstruct them in the edit
#2 they plead time constraints to shut the person down
Musk was prepared a bit
He was no genus
He just used sensible counter measures to stop it being rigged
His terms said
#1 It will be live … BANG edit trickery defeated
#2 His friends can be watching the stream
.. BANG he has a primed army if the BBC try to falsify the narrative later
#3 He had unlimited time .. BANG the “sorry we’ve run out of time” trick couldn’t work.
#4 He was on home soil .. so BBC couldn’t employ any pre-interview disorientation tricks
like winding him up before the show started etc,
A firm government hand is needed to halt this nonsense …………
”Lee Rigby’s case is as relevant as ever” – said nobody in the media
Stephen Lawrence’s mother says her son’s story “remains as important and relevant as ever” on the 30th anniversary of his murder.
The 18-year-old was stabbed in a racist attack by a gang of white youths as he waited for a bus in Eltham, south-east London, on 22 April 1993.
If the parent of every black lad that was knifed in Londonistan and it’s environs was made a Peer, the House of Lords would be stuffed with the bastards.
When they called for Black Rod there’d be a stampede.
Conveniently forgotten ?
“At about 22:15 BST, PC Keith Blakelock was repeatedly stabbed and, a court later heard, attempts were made to decapitate him.”
“Michael Adebolajo drives the Tigra at 30-40mph (48-64km/h) straight at Lee Rigby as he crosses the road in Artillery Place. Adebolajo and Adebowale get out of the car armed with a meat cleaver, knives and a revolver. They attack the motionless body of Mr Rigby and Adebelojo attempts to decapitate him.”
The presumption is endless……..
Holyrood / SNP battening the hatches?
Paul O Grady Drag Queen dead
Barry Humphries female impersonator dead
Eddie Izzard very worried
Everyone else, hopeful
The BBC and the prophets of doom!
Happy Earth Day! (says GWPF)
Earth Day At 52: None of the eco-doomsday predictions have come true…
“From predicting ecological collapse and the end of civilization to warnings that the world is running out of oil, all environmental doomsday predictions of the first Earth Day in 1970 have turned out to be flat out wrong.”
Its a good read and funny cartoon… making fun of Greta and her crowd of lefty eco-mobs parading in London today and tomorrow. It just just so happens its the London Marathon tomorrow. Expect a few BBC photo calls…. Of course the BBC will claim climate is real event, coincidence as its the Marathon and its totally climate driven protest, even if, its not…ever… and is not just a coincidence…
Anyway click for GWPF bulletin on that Eco farce the BBc will claim is only possible because of popular support of ‘climate change’. As if it ever were.
8:18pm on GBnews Benjamin Butterworth said
“Fact … last year we saw a third of Bangladesh underwater”
That’s utter #FakeNews
#1 He meant Pakistan
#2 “third” bit was a MYTH
but #Ofcom don’t give an F
when misinformers are #GreenSupremacist
or #WokeSupremacist they’ll never ask for a correction.
Benjamin Button has to be the biggest idiot on TV.
He’s fully subscribed to Socialist, woke anti white, anti Capitalist and green nonsense.
The so called climate emergency and disasters around the world that we all see on the news are the result of better access to information, data and news around the world, the internet larger populations occupying unsuitable sites, deforestation, interference with watercourses and various natural phenomena
Historical CIA involvement in Ukraine:
Anyone querying the BBC leftist bias need look no further than Toady this morning.
In a feature about impartiality of the press, the carefully chosen talking heads were.
1. Alison Philips, editor of the Daily Mirror
And for balance………errrr………
2. Alan Rubbisher, make that Alan Rusbridger, ex editor of…….the Guardian.
Impartiality. BBC style.
Still, it could be worse. It could be the civil service. Oh, wait.
The nurses latest.
Has anyone calculated how many lives have been saved by the nurses strike action?
Death pathways postponed, for example.
Covid law enforcement was often crazy
It’s still mad, when I can drive 20 miles, visit villages along the way, arrive in a town (Saffron Walden) not see a black face all day, come home switch on the TV and you would think we were in Africa in the ad breaks, relentless black faces.
THAT is racism, if I were UK based Chinese, other asian or any other minority I would be offended at this blatant racist bias.
Is it because the others don’t riot, stab and loot enough ?
Or wander around in hoodies in gangs and despise education and jobs ?
Or worship violence, drug dealing and misogynistic culture ?
Let them get on with it, those that insist will probably have weird parents anyway.
Regarding Saffron Walden, it was like another world, from living near Stevenage, a complete lack of morbidly obese 20 year old single muvvas pushing buggies around, a complete lack of screaming children ignored by their muvvas, or dogs allowed to screech and yap everywhere.
That vid is 6 months old

Up2 mentioned that the BH programme this Sunday will feature someone who thinks his business failed “due to Brexit ” .
Remember when we were pulled more into this EU project before and there were constant “summits ” , troikas , treaties etc .
Our foreign Secretaries coming out of these meetings with new agreements saying
There Will Be Some Winners And Some Losers .
In other words , some innocent businesses will have to go to the wall for the sake of EU unity ( usually the small British ones , but the corporates loved it ) .
Well now “due to Brexit ” some innocent businesses will have to go to the wall because we leave the EU . Whether they outnumber the ones destroyed by the EU the BBC wont tell us because they cant tell us . They have never been interested in jobs and businesses lost due to the EU so they`ve never made a study of it . They wont tell us how many businesses were destroyed by the EU because happily for them they cant tell how many businesses were destroyed by the EU because they didn`t want to know . Or tell .
Culpable ignorance .
Hmm. How about the business failures because of the EU? Ask fishermen, food processors, nurserymen, Ford workers in Southampton……
Exactly . And hauliers.
One just have to ask, how the hell does a 25 year old get a job at the bbc as a fact checker ?
A 25 year old with a history as an activist, a Corbynist who has a self confessed visceral hate of Conservatives ?
I think you will find that is the general description of EVERY fact checker.
Which is the fundemental problem with the whole thing. Only those driven by strong ideological beliefs can be bothered to do it. Which basically means young Leftists who think they can change the world.
When they get older and learn how the world really works, they realise what naive, gullible idiots they were.
