      I will take this brief and opportune moment to send this message to our so called “vigilant” Government to “Stop the boats” before its too late!

    Man, 24, charged with murder over Bodmin stabbing

    What’s this ?. Stabbings rarely make the front page these days except maybe when someone is actually found guilty. We never geta headline just because someone has been charged.

    A quick google finds other people being charged which are nowhere to be found. For example:

    Two University of Northampton students charged with murder appear in court
    Where ‘Ogechi Eke and Melvin Lebaga-Idubor have been charged with murder’


    Brixton death: Man arrested after woman fatally stabbed

    Are both fresh stories yet have been buried deep in ‘regions’

    ‘What could be so special about this one’ I hear you ask ?.

    Of course we know the reason. This is the only one by whitey.

    The story reminds me of the stabbing of promising white footballer Cody Fisher at the Birmingham nightclub. All the reports on the BBC quickly changed from lengthy front-page empathy-fests to basic-facts-only reports as soon as these two appeared in court charged with the murder.


    The racism at the BBC is completely out of control. Why do the Left think it’s OK when it discriminates against white people ?.

    The reason two-left-feet Abbot was so surprised that she got called out for being racist is that she didn’t make it general against white people : she went for white minority groups thinking all whites were fair game.

    What a f*cked up racist world the Left have created. And they are so consumed by their ideology, they are completely unable to see it.

    The beeboid which dreamed up the subject of this weedy article is the typical lazy type of snivel serpent which tries to get out of anything which means it has to actually do some work for a living.


    ‘Not the nine o’clock news’ once did a fabulous sketch, where some lefty old bird, (Mel Smith in drag), stated that when the whole world is bombed to smithereens, ten million people would die, ‘unemployed’!

    The beeboid’s comments are even more stupid than the proper comedy from dear old Mel and Co!

    Nord Stream: Report puts Russian navy ships near pipeline blast site

    Just five days before the blasts, Russian tug SB-123 reportedly arrived at the site and stayed for an entire evening and night

    Some ‘mis’information from the bBC when we all thought it was the US. No way, a Russian ship was there 5 DAYS earlier

      BBC Moaning Emole mounts an investigation.

      ‘New Nord Stream evidence’

      But wait… evidence…

      New young ingenue Alex Binley qualifies, based on the day of the week…

      ‘It might be a bit complex for first thing on a Wednesday, but potential new evidence could shine a light on the Nord Stream explosions.’

      Potentially. Well could… shine a light.

      Based on ‘nearness’, pre Wednesday. Apparently.

      If that is not a full Panorama exclusive, what is?

    Sudan conflict: UK announces final evacuation flights

    “It was previously thought the evacuation had ended on Monday”

    So you bBC fed us misinformation and tried to make a story out of nothing on Monday, when you thought – and was worried about all those “foreign” sorry british people who couldn’t come “home”

    Nord Stream: Report puts Russian navy ships near pipeline blast site – says our BBC this morning.

    Meanwhile, Occam, who was having his morning shave nearby, thought he heard his razor ask him something like: “Why would Putin bomb his own pipeline – the one about which the Americans disapproved and would prefer Germany had cut so as to comply with the US anti-Russia sanctions regime?

    Talking of sharp metal objects…

    Forensic review ordered in unusual stab death case (BBC) – unusual in that the victim wasn’t yet another budding footballer and rap star from South London: Colin Marr death: Forensic and pathology review ordered… died from a single blow from a kitchen knife in 2007 after a row with his fiancée Candice Bonar… His family have long challenged the original police conclusion that it was suicide – Hey, Occam, when you’ve finished with that razor, I’ve a kitchen knife for you to take a closer look at.

    Perhaps we should ban the sale of kitchen knives and confine their use to the… oh.

    Mr AsI would like to add: Ms Bonar has always maintained her innocence. (BBC) – as in the previous pipe bombing case have Putin, the US, UK and Ukraine. Conspiracy theorisers suggest the Israelis might be involved – having employed their man Uri Geller to bend the pipeline a bit.

    The dreaded word Lockdown is back in the headlines…

    Palace in Lockdown after ‘attack’ … controlled explosion as man is held over shotgun cartridges thrown into grounds (Mirror) – they held him over exploding shot gun cartridges? A cruel and unusual punishment surely? That must be some ancient hang over from time gone by. I wonder if it was a public holding over or conducted in private? I jest of course.

    The tabloids got very excited: Man held in shotgun cartridges drama at palace (Mail); Coronation security scare (Mirror)

    We prefer the Daily Star’s surprisingly relaxed attitude in this case: Gun scare at palace

    Those nurses are at it again with their home made protest placards and witty strike slogans. Providing Mr AsI with his new guilty pleasure…

    The FT delivers frontpage our angry fist-clenching nursy today photographed in fashionable leopard print hijab – but our amusement derrives from the motto scawled on cardboard just in shot to the right of the pic – and it’s a doozy: “Unlike Lady Gaga We Don’t Do It 4 The Applause

    bBC reports on people getting paid for working

    Coronation: Think of millions working during celebrations – union

    Maybe its another way of pushing for a pay increase

    Elsewhere on the bbc webshte, it quotes

    “Elections to politicians are what oxygen is to the rest of us – life is impossible without them, they are essential to survive” #funny

    I wonder if people needing photo id, what the actual turnout will be


    • moggie63 says:

      I don’t have photo ID so I won’t be voting. Then again, I wasn’t going to anyway. What’s the point?


  10. Guest Who says:

    Presumably, every BBC TNI partner for starters.

    Given the bbc presence there, Saz, Lurch and Co do draw in the audience.


  11. Doublethinker says:

    FedUp asks a question on the banner at the intro to this Wednesday’s edition, ‘ Will the BBC behave or be true to its Neo Marxism’ in the run up to the Coronation?, or roughly speaking.

    I think that the BBC will do Charles the Woke proud. He is one of them placed by an accident of birth in a position of great influence for the woke cause. He is global ambassador for Wokism.
    If you are a true patriotic Brit Charles is best regarded as a double agent . He espouses so much that the BBC agree with, climate emergency , diversity in excess , white people should pay reparations or at least think that it is a legitimate question. He has a few eccentric traits , likes old buildings, rides horses , lives in the country , but a super agent of influence can be forgiven these. And of course his excessive use of aircraft and large cars is necessary for him to proselytise on behalf of the woke cause.
    All in all he is a great asset to Wokism and needs the BBC’s support and protection.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Double ,
      There will be the usual ‘strangely mad ‘ monachist fanatics lining the roads in town – waving flags like demented Chinese …. And ‘omg tourists ‘ ( oh wow hunny isn’t if glorious ) but … does the ordinary Briton have much affection for Charles Windsor ? I’d suggest ‘no’ – and I wonder how ‘popular’ the monarchy will be after he’s been there for a decade or two ?

      The people who run it must just hope he won’t ‘gaff ‘ too much and overwoke ….. until the William one comes along …..

      As I write I seeing echoes of Biden in Charles – just a dead eyed puppet operated by an ‘agenda ‘… but at least they don’t need to fix the vote here ….

      Talking of voting – I think blue labour councils will be wiped out on Thursday – chiefly because blue voters won’t bother – or bother going back when they’re told at voting they needed photo ID .
      Personally I wouldn’t let people vote unless they had -say 10 years of national insurance contributions or a military record if younger ….
      I notice comrade Robinson has got the overnight HRH Dimbleby gig this time – dimbleby of course – excluded from the coronation gig with just a ‘bit ‘ part . No viewing for me though – I care less …


  12. Sluff says:

    It’s statistics time !!!

    Mrs S has been watching a video on the results from the Zoe Poo test study. Over 130,000 people took part. Approx. 72% were female and 28% were male.
    I say ‘approx.’ Partly to save me from looking out the exact numbers. But also to mention that out of the 130,000, some 118 identified themselves as ‘other’. So to a good approximation this is the real extent of the potential ‘trans’ community. About 1 in 1000.
    Think of that and then think of the airtime the BBC give to the issue.

    Meanwhile………on the front page of the BBC webshite at the time of writing, we learn that a wheelchair- bound man on an aircraft flight from the Republic of Ireland to Sweden had to wait to be helped off the plane and in the end crawled down the steps himself. Not good, but front page news? How many millions travel by air? And since when did the first B mean Irish?

    ‘News’ on the BBC is of no relevance at all to huge majorities of the population. Proof positive that it is there for an agenda of the BBC’s invention. An abuse of power with bells on.


    • Guest Who says:

      Stats, darn stats, and BBC TNI ‘surveys’.

      Here, again, is BBC TNI source for the goose/gander/FoisGras accurate to 1%:

      And, here again, they are getting frillies ruffled:

      If Sopes and BS are not on the red eye to join Lurch and Saz…


      • Fedup2 says:

        Surely referring to someone as ‘yummy ‘ is offensive and should be made a federal crime . ? Carlson can then be arrested by the stazi / fBi is public at an airport by a swat team and handcuffed live on CNN .
        Then maybe they can shoot him for ‘resisting arrest ‘…is that Russia or America ….. ?


    • Dickie says:

      Sluff – “Crawled down the steps himself”. Wonder if this was filmed/videod cos it could be sent to the White House to give Biden a tip on how to do it.


  13. Sluff says:

    As we approach the local elections, it’s worth remembering that you don’t have to be a British citizen to vote.
    Yes, you get a vote without needing to have any allegiance at all, except maybe an allegiance to voting for taxpayers to spend more of their money on you.

    Worth a peek.

    And a thought in marginal wards or those with, ahem, large numbers of people who have difficulty speaking English.


  14. Fedup2 says:

    I was half asleep but think I heard comrade Robinson going at the outgoing PM who had to tediously do ‘today ‘ in prep for council elections Thursday . I’m sure sunak chirped about falls in crime – that is – recorded crime ….
    But surely we know people have rightly given up . So I’m going to tell you a story ….

    2 weeks ago my deaf 92 year old neighbour was scammed of £1500 from a Barclays in bank cash machine . A few days later the same foreign sounding ‘team ‘ tried again. Yesterday – while I was visiting – she had another phone call – from ‘British gas ‘…..

    …. Now I dealt with the above . My neighbour neither has the internet or a mobile phone …. Yet everything is geared up for the internet …
    … and there is a useless thing called ‘action fraud ‘ – a self serving crap organisation paid for by …?

    Anyway – after I reported what had happened to plod ( no investigation ) and spent 4 hours in the bank -the lady got her money back – well done Barclays ….

    The above is an example of the ‘safe Britain ‘ sunak lies about …
    I hope that little fraud team all die slow painful deaths – soon …..

      Dear Winston Smith in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth,

      You covered President Trump’s 100 Days and then produced a Beyond 100 Days to hold power to account.

      Why have you not done the same for President Biden to hold power to account?

  16. digg says:

    The BBC lead story is a report by some mystery figure that points the finger at Russia for the Nord Stream blast.


    Lots of the usual “may” and “could” whilst hiding the name of the mystery person behind the suggestion.

    One glaringly obvious question that the BBC overlook…. If the Russians wanted to stop the flow of oil, they are at the start of it and could have simply turned it off without all the murky juvenile sabotage crap…

    To me this is an obvious and quite childish Biden-Ukraine arse-covering attempt by the BBC.


    • JohnC says:

      This one story alone is enough to ruin whatever tatters of integrity the BBC had left. The fact they can continue to push stories like this when it’s obvious to everyone else that Biden ordered it, nothing they ever write again can be trusted.

      They are desperately trying to find anything they can to infer as evidence Russia did it and not even entertaining the possibility that the USA did it.

      Totally corrupt journalism.


      • digg says:

        Telling that the Nord story has vanished from pole position on the BBC website, now it appears to have gone to room 101….


      • moggie63 says:

    If you have to show photo ID to vote what will them lot who cover everything except the eyes show?

    Will they have to remove all head covering and have a photo ID also without covering.
    Are their driving licence photographs ‘bare headed’ as the rest of the UK must be.

    I somehow can’t see them taking their covers off to vote.
    Maybe they will have a private area where some approved person can look at them to check they match the photo but I would imagine finding a neutral acceptable to them in every polling place would be difficult.

    Also, is anyone else puzzled by the threat of somebody throwing a shotgun cartridge through a gate apart from possibly scuffing a piece of tarmac or cobblestone.
    They made a big deal out of it.
    They also (probably) blew up his lunch where he left it when he was being arrested.

  20. s.trubble says:

    It seems inevitable ( largely due to his absence) that Mr Tim Davie can be reawakened with a Government request to produce the detailed plan to deliver a subscription based service.

    The question arises ; why is no one in Government sitting on top of this lad on a daily basis?

    While on the subject of this public sector organ, the public sector as a whole is a major cause for concern in my humble opinion.
    It just isn’t working and its various layers of cost are now unaffordable.
    When will a real Conservative get in amongst this ….
    A realistic plan would be an overall reduction in cost of 50%.
    with a corresponding benefit analysis of how much Tax reduction could achieved from a Tax regime way out of control and affordability.


    • Flotsam says:

      Yes. The public sector is completely out of control. They seem to think that we owe them a living however poor their performance might be and we exist to serve their needs. The public sector is the last bastion of Unionism. The Unions are a disgrace.


  21. Thoughtful says:

    Readers who watched it will recall I posted a video about the US default and why it was now an inevitability in one form or another.

    Yesterday Transitory Yellen told congress that the US would default by 1st June, the end of this month unless the debt ceiling is raised. There are several options to avoid this but Biden is running on a platform of give us everything we want or we will cause a default.

    There are also hard line Republicans who would never agree to this and the speaker agreed if just one of them objected it would force a new election. Biden is now calling a meeting about this situation but there is no guarantee any agreement will come out of it.

    We will now see how the BBC plays this situation because the sticking point up to now has undoubtedly been Biden refusing to even negotiate and now there is very little time left to do so.
    I have no doubt the BBC will lay the blame on the GOP and fail to even mention the intransigence of Biden and his mafia.

    Time will tell, but one thing is for certain, this is too big a story for them to miss reporting.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Thoughtful – yes thanks – aware – but what happens is the debt ceiling is not raised ( government closure ?) or if it is raised ( fall in value of the USD?)

      I m sure Obama Biden will blame the true president but that ain’t gonna fix it …. Good time for China / Russia to do a nasty ….

      BTW – congratulations on your ‘first ‘….


      • Thoughtful says:

        LOL thanks for the congrats.

        The US will probably go to a technical default in which the Fed will ‘print’ money in order to meet the obligations, but more notes mean a dilution of the Dollar which will fall in value.

        It’s like giving someone money for a slice of cake in the future and then finding the slice you receive is much smaller than you were promised it would be.

        BRICS won’t do anything other than use it as an example as to why they need to de-dollarise. This is major news in the USA with many blaming Biden for the mess, but hardly anything reported in the UK even the FT, no doubt the excuse being it is US news not for the UK interest.

        Biden has a popularity because of the Satanic religion of Socialism “free stuff” he has promised a moratorium on student debt which is costing a fortune and now has no reason to be in place, but if you were a beneficiary it’s easy to imagine why you would want that to continue regardless of the conserquences.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Thoughtful – the trend in countries such as the US and UK throw out borrowed taxpayer cash is a sickness of our time .

          I know someone who is elderly but ‘okay ‘ financially – but qualify for ‘pensioner credit ‘ . It came as a surprise for them to find out they had got free money ( £300 this week ) as a cost of living allowance with a further `£600 on the way –
          If I recall this money is automatically going to 8 million bank accounts – from a Conservative government with no financial control at all – and barely a mention in the press or even politics …

  22. TrickCyclist says:

    It’s often said hereabouts that the Beeb don’t do comedy, but they sometimes do it unintentionally. Witness this tone-deaf headline on the BBC homepage:
    “Missing Australian’s body found inside crocodile”
    The article itself tells us:
    “Crocodiles are common in Australia’s tropical north, but attacks are rare. Mr Darmody’s death is just the 13th fatal attack in Queensland since record-keeping began in 1985.”
    I know this is a leap of logic but 13 in 38 years actually sounds like quite a lot to me – especially as in this country we are encouraged to continually self-flagellate over the murder of one teenager 30 years ago.

    Lots of talking heads on tv both for and against having a Monarchy.

    If it ended up going for a Republic and the Leader was voted in just think, Kahn was voted in, Yousef was voted in, Abbot, Lammy, Soubry and so many others were voted in.
    Who knows what we might end up with.

    I’m no staunch Monarchist but it seems to be the best of the systems. Charles the Woke seems the least worst option.

    Just like our political choices, all are crap and we try to get the one which will do the least harm.

    A turf war has broken out over in Leicester ahead of the local elections, with Keith Vaz once again accused of leading the charge. The row is focused on the city’s mayoral election, with Labour incumbent Sir Peter Soulsby standing again after surviving an attempted plot to scrap the role entirely last month.


    … reminds me of Keith Vaz …

    “Keith Vaz has been appointed to a parliamentary committee preparing a new law to tackle corruption and money laundering. {dailymail nov2016} The Leicester East MP is currently under investigation by the Metropolitan Police … ”

    “Keith Vaz (67% voters for Labour in GE17), the senior Labour backbencher, claimed more than £75,500 in expenses for a flat in Westminster despite his family home being a £1.15 million house just 12 miles from parliament.”
    “Mr Vaz’s claims have always been in accordance with the spirit and rules of the Green Book,” – Reported 9 May 2009.

    • Zelazek says:

      It’s the usual type of misleading headline.

      However, it’s an interesting story. I can see why blacks would be proud of Henson and the Inuit proud of the four eskimoes who were also in the party who reached the North Pole.

      I had only heard of Peary and not the rest of the party. But that’s the way of things. Leaders are famous. Their men usually aren’t. Does anyone know the names of the men who reached the South Pole with Amundsen? No. Do you remember the names of the men who accompanied Captain Scott? Perhaps only Captain Oates because he died a hero.

      Perhaps this black man hasn’t received his due. But giving him his due doesn’t mean what the headline implies; that a black man and not a white man discovered the North Pole. All these great expeditions of discovery of the past may have included blacks, Inuit, sherpas, and other indigenous people amongst their parties. But that doesn’t mean they weren’t basically white European enterprises led by white men. They certainly weren’t black achievements. Afrocentrists want to appropriate so many great white European inventions, discoveries and achievements. At the same time of course as accusing us of culturally appropriating their hairstyles or clothes or other trivial things.

      These sneaky and increasingly numerous attempts to rewrite history are insidious and must be continually refuted.

    “AI ‘godfather’ Geoffrey Hinton warns of dangers as he quits Google”

    “When asked by the BBC to elaborate on this, he replied: “This is just a kind of worst-case scenario, kind of a nightmare scenario. You can imagine, for example, some bad actor like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin decided to give robots the ability to create their own sub-goals.”

    The BBC requesting an elaboration does seem to skew answers towards the familiar.

      China has steadily accumulated U.S. Treasury securities over the last few decades. In August 2022, the Asian nation owned $971.8 billion in Treasurys, roughly 13% of the U.S. national debt.

      U.S. debt to China comes mainly in the form of U.S. Treasury securities (bonds issued by the federal government).



      • Thoughtful says:

        They did back then but they have been de-dollarising and now hold $860 Bn more an $100 Bn less in just one year. I expect that now today that figure is even lower thanks to the second worst president the country has even had.


        • Fedup2 says:


          Do you think the Chinese threw their dollar debt back to the US when they took the strategic reserve oil last year ?


  31. Terminal Moraine says:

    Joana Firmino “does not like King Charles and does not want to see him being crowned.”

    “… she worries King Charles may “not make good decisions” because of his troubled relationship with his first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales.”

    Any passing resemblance to Meghan Markle in appearance and sentiment is coincidental. BBC random sampling for the win.

    Grays pub that displayed golly dolls closes after supplier boycott


    “The dolls are thought to date back to the medieval minstrel entertainment shows, when typically white actors painted their faces black and depicted negative stereotypes of black people.”

    I’m curious just how many ‘negative stereotypes of black people’ your average Anglo-Saxon peasant had in mid-9th Century Essex – I suspect they were rather more concerned about marauding Danes personally.

      Grays pub that displayed golly dolls closes after supplier boycott

      Five Essex Police officers removed the offensive dolls from behind the bar at the White Hart Inn, Grays, following a hate crime allegation.

      Heineken and Carlsberg have told the pub to stop serving its lager, while maintenance company Innserve refused to continue working on site.


      • Scroblene says:

        So I need not buy Heineken or Carlsberg again then!

        Sounds like a Budweiser moment to me…

    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      Note the use of the word “boycott”. It seems that the customers have not boycotted the pub, rather woke brewers have refused to supply it with beer, a very different thing indeed.


      • Scroblene says:

        The boycott will come later when they get new tenants, I suspect!


  34. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I’m seeing on the news that anybody protesting or getting in the way of the coronation is looking at a 1 year custodial sentence.

    Will this only happen if the elites are being inconvenienced.

    After the coronation will it revert back to normal where the police only apply the law to the right wing demo’s while giving those on the left, such as just stop oil, the nod to carry on (plus a nice cup of tea) or does it mean they have to apply the law to both left and right in the future.

      Here he is:


      This story is not even on the BBC yet. Quite astounding considering how it is high on the list for the current agenda when whitey does it.

      Or not when you remember what complete racists the BBC are and have decided not showing black people in a bad light is more important than the 5 women he shot.

      It will appear later when the story dies down a bit and can be quickly shifted out of the news most people see.


  37. Thoughtful says:

    Not heard anything about this on the mainstream media.

    Ukraine or what might be left of the country after Zelensky and his cronies do a bunk:



    • JohnC says:

      I find the fact 58% of Democrats initially thought Ukraine was going to win (now 35%) to be absolutely indicative of what gullible mainstream-media idiots they are.

      I wonder if it has dawned on them yet that it is about far more than Russia simply doing a land-grab. They genuinely do believe their future existence as a major power depends on Ukraine not joining NATO and becoming a USA puppet.

      I continue to be absolutely stunned that we are being led to war by Biden on the back of the most extreme lies and propaganda and none of the MSM are bothered about it.

      And the worst of any of them is the BBC because they are publicly funded with a charter mandate to be impartial.

      It shines a spotlight on their complete corruption.

      Guest who – so the key question is ‘ was – who the hell decided she was suitable to conduct such a sensitive inquiry ?

      It’s all very well going after her now – but the damage is done – quite an achievement for Red Labour …..

      … the current blue labour government seems to think ‘having an inquiry ‘ is a solution to some media inspired campaign . Will they ever realise that these days inquiries will only be ‘acceptable ‘ if the approved outcome is there ( see Raab ) …

      They are just so dumb …

    Amazing how the BBC can publish this article one day:

    What do we know about drone attacks in Russia?

    Then with a straight face quote Zelensky saying this:

    “We don’t attack Putin or Moscow. We fight on on our territory. We are defending our villages and cities,” he said, speaking on a visit to Finland.

    Without any check-and-balance against known facts.

    If the BBC and the USA want me to support them in this war, they need to stop lying to me like I’m a child of 6. It might work for the type who frequent the BBC these days but it doesn’t work for people who can think for themselves.

    For every lie I see from Putin at the moment, I see about 10 from Ukraine.

    Coronation protests allowed, security minister Tom Tugendhat says


    So in our democracy, people are being allowed to protest against the monarchy. Great. But does that simple fact warrant a headline, front-page story as big as the BBC have made it ?. Along with this picture in full view – bigger than any others – from a story by ‘The Mirror’.

    Or would a simply sub-pane article without a picture have been enough for such a story ?.

    The main reason I support having that taxpayer funded bunch of freeloaders at the Palace is that they are a non-political head-of-state acting as a check-and-balance against what the likes of the BBC and the Mirror are working to change it to.

    This is a comment from The Mirror story the BBC have lifted it from about Camilla’s son:

    ‘Camilla deserves everything she gets we hate her and my god you have inherited her ugly genes. Who the hell do you think you are. Why don’t you tell her to pack her bags and go then we would be happy in more words we can say.’

    As I keep saying : nobody hates like the Left. Imagine these people with absolute power.

    Unfortunately they don’t credit the author so I can’t give you a picture.

    I’ve just searched the BBC website for articles featuring black actor David Harewood. Here is a selection, with the year they first appeared:

    David Harewood: Will Britain ever have a black prime minister? (2016)
    David Harewood: Next Doctor Who should be black or female (2017)
    David Harewood on racism, education and his family’s slavery (2020)
    David Harewood explores growth of African-American culture (2023)

    I’ve been aware of this bloke and his attitudes for some time, but I happened to look at my Freeview TV Guide and on BBC Two tonight was a programme entitled ‘David Harewood: Psychosis and Me.’
    From the description: “David Harewood had a psychotic breakdown and was sectioned in his 20s.”
    Well, you learn something new every day. Does make you wonder how the BBC select their ‘go-to’ opinion people, though.

    The BBC must be licking their chops as another deranged black man dies at the hands of a white man while being subdued in a chokehold on the NY Subway.

    With sufficient race-stirring by the likes of the BBC, this could be whipped up into George Floyd Mark 2, with all the attendant Burning, Looting and Murdering; the mainly peaceful riots; and BLM pocketing millions to be spent on luxury mansions for themselves.
