    Interesting weekend for our beloved BBC. On the one hand trying to feign interest in a new king being put into place for our nation to try to hang on to support of the majority of the people who think it’s great whilst desperately pushing and hoping for an anti establishment republican uprising who would be happy to see Charles head on a pike in the local elections.

    What fun!

    If only we had a truly patriotic national broadcaster without this double-crossing crap albeit paid for by force by our population, how much more comforting and fair it would be!

      Meanwhile the delightful Guardian have decided to go full on anti-royal, practically the entire home page devoted to a scurrilous unrelenting attack on just about everything royal.

      Whilst they are perfectly content to ignore the obscene wealth accumulated by the protected alumni such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates, The Biden’s etc, etc, they dig and dig for dirt going back centuries if necessary to attempt to paint the royals as leeches on British society.

      There can only be one explanation for this and that is the push for republicanism for the UK. They realise that a regal head of the nation means they can never fully take over the reins. A fact that has prevented this country becoming a banana republic run by powerful vested interest groups like the USA in fact.

      Of course a side effect of republicanism is the elevation of the role of a certain flavour of journalism as a driving force in society so enough said!

    Russian videos appearing to show Kremlin drone attack – what do we know? – BBC News

    Just looking to find out a bit more about this and stumbled across this video by ‘Ros Atkins’.

    Finally I find someone at the BBC who I dislike as much as Sopes. This man could sneer for England : just look at his expressions at 0:45.

    And he seems to spend most of the video giving us ‘facts’ which are entirely irrelevant along with nice computer graphics to make it look as though it’s a professional investigation. But basically he tells us nothing that the video doesn’t show us.

    However looking elsewhere I discover the super-important fact Ros missed was that it was a multirotor drone, not a fixed wing kamikaze drone and the small explosion AFTER it passed the flagpole will have been a small explosive device which is all it could carry.

    In my previous work I flew these small drones a lot as I worked on an autopilot system for them and they have a very limited speed, flight time and range – especially when carrying a payload – so it was definitely launched within a few miles of the target : probably within a mile and flown by video link as I am sure GPS is jammed in that area, and the video link needs clear line-of-sight.

    So my opinion now is that it was a symbolic strike at night to try and destroy that dome of the senate building – which would be very embarassing to Russia. No way was it an assasination attempt and highly unlikely that Russia did it considering the embarassment factor if the dome was damaged. They would have done it in Putins garden or something.

    Plus the fact that it detonated just after the flag indicates someone triggered it manually because the drone actually missed the dome.

    However this was done by experienced people : it’s no small task to make and fit an explosive device to one of these drones and have all the controls in place to arm and detonate it safely. I would say these people are directly linked to a Ukranian secret service. And I can’t imagine they would attempt such an attack without approval from the very highest level because of the ramifications.

    And I seriously doubt the Russians will go after Zelensky – but they will have intended to terrify the poor comedian and make him paranoid with the statement – particularly as he has no defence against their hypersonic missiles.

    Of course I may be wrong – but thought people might want to know an explanation which makes sense compared to the misinformation and hysteria on the BBC who seem to just want to quote Ukranian/American politicians as ‘fact’ and Russians as ‘without providing evidence’.

    TikTok tracked UK journalist via her cat’s account

    ‘Two days before Christmas, TikTok called London-based journalist Cristina Criddle to tell her two of its employees in China, and two in the US, had viewed user data from her personal account without her knowledge or consent.’

    Really BBC ?. Four people saw her personal data ?. Do you really feel the need to write that as an opening paragraph as if someone had died as a result ?.

    Because according to google, you didn’t even report this about twitter before Musk bought it:

    ‘Elon Musk claims the US government had ‘full access’ to private Twitter DMs’

    Which I estimate is somewhere between one and ten million times more important. Another whopping lie by omission.

    Tick Tok bad. Orange man bad. BBC racist, sexist, misandrist liars.

    Nice work Zoe:

    What is it about election coverage ?

    Maybe it’s like one of those ‘one hit wonders ‘ you get reminded of from years back which just sticks in your head even though you don’t want it ?

    Maybe it’s the tribal blue red yellow approach the msm really push as counts come in – forget the inclusivity mantra – let’s just have tribal hate .

    Certainly – from my very small exposure to ‘today ‘ this morning comrade c word Robinson is in tone – in full anti blue rapture – I can feel the glee as the blue ones are replaced by red or yellow ones .

    As if it matters ….

    . it seems the BBC has been running a ‘results programme ‘ through out the night with peak viewing at 4am when as many as 3 people were watching …. I hope it took a nice chunk out of the bbc budget ….

    BTW …. Apparently the bbc – which has a monopoly on the king thing – is charging domestic websites a shed load to stream the king thing whilst foreigners ( the US) get it within existing packages …..


    • Fedup2 says:

      On the Kremlin drone – I don’t really care but do they think it was launched from within Russia or outside it ? Was it russian or Ukrainian ( US ) ?

      There doesn’t seem to be a flash brighter than the sun in east londonistan yet – nor the hypersonic blast 3 seconds afterward yet – although I did have a deep sleep so might have missed it …

      I’d just be a bit happier if I knew the reason for dying in the coming nuclear conflagration ….


      • JohnC says:

        Seems to be Ukranian people going close to the Kremlin and launching it from there within line of sight of where it was going.

        It was just one of the smaller multi-rotors like people use for aerial photography with a bit of plastic explosive or something on it as opposed to one of those bigger fixed wing things.

        It doesn’t look like the Russians brought it down at all : it looks like the guy flying it misjudged it and missed the dome completely.

        Remember: when you see the flash, lie face down towards it. Wait for the blast wave to go over you then wait for the second one coming back again before you get up and change your soiled pants.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Thank you for your advice regarding surviving a nuclear attack – I notice that you don’t mention the use of silver foil or painting windows white – nor any advice about countering the EMP – which I reckon can be done by not leaving electrical devices on standby ….

          …. As for the Kremlin thing -mod you think they got the drone from Argos or some other outlet …. Was it the same crew who blew up the nordstream pipe thing ?


          • JohnC says:

            lol – I have direct experience of EMP in Thailand : we had lightning right over the house during a huge storm and it burnt out the motor coils for 4 of the 6 ceiling fans we have. It also trashed the main unit RCD.

            These fans were all turned off : I don’t think it matters if they are plugged in or not. The power is induced directly into the device. In one, the PCB was totally burnt out. It was amazing.

            Suffice to say make sure you can survive without anything electrical.

            The pipe was Biden trying to murder German pensioners and I think we probably gave them the drone.


        • Up2snuff says:

          John C and Fed, the intel of whoever launched the drone against the Kremlin was none too good: Putin wasn’t there!


          • JohnC says:

            I don’t think Putin was ever the target Up2 : no chance he would be in the senate building at night time. I suspect it was symbolic to embarass Russia to the world with a successful attack on the Kremlin.

            I find it a bit of a coincidence that someone was across the street filming it and it quickly got onto social media.

              “I find it a bit of a coincidence that someone was across the street filming it and it quickly got onto social media.”

              It could have been a bit of a flick from the CCTV outside the Moscow Morrisons, John!

              Instead of picking up a few pics of a vodka-nicking gang, they got some stuff left over from a Guy Fawkes party a couple of years ago!

    Oh no – they’ve deployed HRH dimbleby minor ( junior ) PLC to brown nose for Charlie Windsor – he’s got his invite to the bash for his work building his bank balance .

    It looks like HRH dimbleby PLC will be elevated to high royal office with garters involved as well as ‘orders ‘ … the BBC is hedging by hating the monarchy whilst getting their own man inside … clever work ….

    So dimbleby will be the voice of mr Windsor – how soon will the message get rolled out ..?

    Excellent BBC bias tonight with a report from Washington on the Proud Boys trial.

    Plett-Usher heavily linking Trump with the Proud Boys, then showing the Jan 6 Trump speech where he said ‘I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building’ – and the clip was cut there.

    Obviously to exclude the following – ‘ to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard’

    These people are just filth.


    • MarkyMark says:

      From 2017 … Lest we forget how it all works … videos, words, pictures … you don’t get to choose the arrangement …

      Chaos as police stop Hungary migrant train – Gavin Hewitt – BBC -Sep 2015 @53s
      “… the a really distressing incident happened. A women who was carrying a small baby began crying for help (photo of lady carrying baby). One of her companions tried to help her (photo of man with women on track, riot police reaching towards them) Somehow there became a push and a shove with the police. She ended up on the railway lines (by the male refugee dragging her and the baby to the floor, but this is not said) with the riot police trying to pull her back, and this of course inflamed all the other people…”
      -Gavin Hewitt – Sep 2015

      Watch the video and the male refugee (companion trying to help?) drags the women and baby to the floor, by force.

      Even the Mirror (03Sept2015) says “… this refugee couple cradle their tiny baby, after throwing themselves (NO! Male refugee drags women and baby onto train tracks) on train tracks as police try to take them to migrant camps in Hungary”

      Gets better. Two days (05Sept2015) later the Mirror then report it as
      “Refugee who dragged pregnant wife and baby son onto train track did it because ‘death would be better’”

      1. BBC Version uses words and pictures to hide the video version
      2. The Mirror shows the video but uses words to tell a different version

      Can I suggest a little story – “Male refugee forces pregnant women refugee holding child down onto a train track, police drag him away for her safety? Riot police then lift women with child off track with tender arms.”

    Johanita Dogbey: Man charged with Brixton murder

    This one won’t stay on the front page for long : it’s one of those BBC ‘basic facts only’ articles.

    Johanita Kossiwa Dogbey murdered by Mohamed Nur on the streets of London.

    Where is the outcry to make the streets safe for women ?.

    Where are the feminists + misandrists demanding more men get arrested ?.

    Where are the vigils ?.

    Where are the female MP’s standing up in the house and demanding action ?.

    The only time I saw vigils for someone not murdered by a whitey was for Sabina Nessa. However they obviously thought it WAS a whitey because they stopped immediately it was known an Albanian immigrant did it.


    • MarkyMark says:

      Mohamed Nur, 33, of Bond Way, Vauxhall, has been charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon.


      The popularity of the name Muhammad/Mohammed/Mohammad

      You can enter your name and see it’s popularity go up or down …. visual.ons.gov.uk/baby-names-since-1904-how-has-yours-performed

      With a special link provided by the the UK Government for special names such as Muhammad, Mohammed and Mohammad (other names not so special)

      We do not have a definitive answer for why the variations of the name Muhammad have generally risen up the rankings over time, but there are some possible explanations.
      1. The increasing size of the Muslim community in England and Wales
      2. The dominance of the name in the Muslim community combined with increased diversity in names for baby boys
      3. The possible increased dominance of the name in the Muslim community
      4. The possible effect of popular sporting figures with the names Muhammad and Mohamed

      The term such as ‘increased dominance‘ is odd, when in maths you could use the term ‘increased occurrence’ instead.

      dominance – power and influence over others
      occurrence – the fact or frequency of something happening

      Words do have meanings and some are more emotive than others.

      Find a gullible ‘news outlet’ and then let them do the rest. Result a stupid person and a stupid news outlet.

      Mr Greenhalgh (businessman) said he was “half-heartedly” aware of the new rules, but didn’t think about them when heading to the polling station late on Thursday evening.

      “A passport isn’t something you carry around with you everywhere you go,” he said, adding that while the staff at the polling station were apologetic, he was “devastated” by the development.

      Perhaps he runs his business in a half hearted way and is then devastated by the lack of profits.


    • Flotsam says:

      James Greenhalgh must be a pretty stupid person if he didn’t know about voter ID requirement. There’s been no end of publicity. He works for the NHS, presumably votes Labour so fits the profile. Seriously. If he is so unaware of current affairs that he had no idea the change to voting was happening, he has no business voting. Doesn’t seem a great loss to the voting pool.

      Labour has been “banging on” about it for a good while and continue to do so. It must be a big problem for them to be so concerned.


  13. Fedup2 says:

    The BBC ran ‘election coverage ‘ all night – as if there were counts going on . By about 0800 only 25% of council counts has been completed . So I wonder what they were talking about all night?

    The day shift is on now ( thought I’d dip in ) with a variety coloured reporters and presenters telling us ‘still plenty to come ‘…
    These results are important locally ( see Plymouth and the trees ) … but otherwise .. not really … and tomorrow many ( most ) will be watching the rainy abbey show ….


  14. MarkyMark says:

    Although his behaviour is legal, Twells’s literature did make the dubious claim he could “keep in touch and work hard for this area all year round”. The Mayor of Salford, where Chris is already a councillor, has now called on him to “do the right thing and resign”. He will now be able to claim double expenses. Chris had defended his electoral two-timing by claiming he was merely a “paper candidate”. Oops.

    Nihal Arthanayake has a daily show on R5, where in true BBC style he imagines himself at the vanguard of improving societal relations. Adopting O’Brien levels of grandiosity and self delusion he’s also got a book “Let’s Talk: How to Have Better Conversations”.

    The blurb says his interviewees “have lauded his seemingly innate ability to stimulate positive discussions without the need for confrontation. Now he wants to understand how he developed his skills, what it exactly means to have a ‘great conversation’ and, most importantly, how he can teach us to have better interactions in our everyday lives.”

    Here’s Nihal in yet another childish spat and outing himself as overtly anti-English. He adds: “Oh look. The brainiacs are out in force. Either way, your patron saint was Greek/Turkish…. ha!”

    Not a surprise that he’s got a home at the BBC.

      Good to see this character puts up the Shri Lanka flag – from where his people come ……


      • MarkyMark says:

        Faced with a deepening economic and humanitarian crisis, Sri Lanka called off an ill-conceived national experiment in organic agriculture this winter. Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa promised in his 2019 election campaign to transition the country’s farmers to organic agriculture over a period of 10 years. Last April, Rajapaksa’s government made good on that promise, imposing a nationwide ban on the importation and use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and ordering the country’s 2 million farmers to go organic.

        The result was brutal and swift. Against claims that organic methods can produce comparable yields to conventional farming, domestic rice production fell 20 percent in just the first six months. Sri Lanka, long self-sufficient in rice production, has been forced to import $450 million worth of rice even as domestic prices for this staple of the national diet surged by around 50 percent. The ban also devastated the nation’s tea crop, its primary export and source of foreign exchange.

      St George was of course not Turkish. He was from Greek Asia Minor, a place which centuries later was overrun by muslim invaders from Central Asia. The place is now called Turkey and will never be Christian again, a fate which I suspect awaits Britain.

      Yes, gender confirmation surgery is available for free on the NHS. Transgender health services at NHS gender identity clinics are also available.21 Mar 2023

      How much does gender confirmation surgery cost privately in the UK?
      Gender confirmation surgery costs vary. Fees can range from £10,000 to £100,000, according to trans support network, TransUnite.

      Female to male gender confirmation surgery is more expensive, often in the region of £60,000. Male to female gender confirmation surgery costs between £10,000 and £20,000.

      For top surgery only, the cost generally falls between £5,000-£8,000, including aftercare.

    Four are understood to be taking legal action in relation to the policy.

    Police Scotland said it was necessary so officers and staff could wear protective FFP3 masks which require users to be clean-shaven.

      “Four are understood to be taking legal action in relation to the policy.”

      That would be the muslim element no doubt.

    Seems a bunch of 20 plus teenage feral rats are terrorising a town in Shropshire on a regular basis for kicks and theft.


    As depressingly expected local plod are treating it with what is euphemistically called a soft touch but which actually means Sod all…probably going to McDonalds for a burger and fries in fact.

    How much longer before people subjected to this sort of filthy inhuman behaviour destroying their lives start resorting to recruiting vigilantes to sort them out as in the old Wild West? A few lost teeth, flattened noses and broken bones would send a much clearer message to re-educate these lower than slimy animals than the police will ever do,

    Time to cleanse the police force of all its useless hangers on, demo-dancers, girlies and form fillers and get some no nonsense real blokes back into it who are prepared to sort out the dickheads once and for all.

    Daily Mail:

    Has Ukraine shot down ‘unstoppable’ Putin missile? Experts say wreckage suggests a hypersonic Kinzhal has been downed
    Ukraine is suspected of shooting down Russia’s prized Kh-47 Kinzhal missile
    Russia launched series of missiles at Ukraine over drone strike on Kremlin

    Ukrainian pensioner ‘shoots down £74million Russian Su-34 jet with a RIFLE and is awarded a medal for his heroism’
    Valeriy Fedorovych allegedly shot down Russian Su-34 jet flying over Chernihiv
    He collected debris from the exploded jet and keeps it in his garage
    Pensioner was awarded a medal by the State Border Service of Ukraine

    Ruddy hell, he’s good is old Valeriy Fedorovych. Guess a US Congressional Medal of Honour in the offing. The Russians must be pooping themselves.

      Dickie – very poor propaganda methinks – surely the Ukrainian / pentagon truth department can pump out something betterer..

    You can bet all the tea in China that the BBC will have briefed their “cameramen”, (sorry camera plus 72 suffixes) and on the spot reporters to pick out the dark skinned spectators in the 98% hideously white crowd at the weekends coronation.


    • Nodding Dog says:

      I once read on a google new group that they had a name for it ‘bloncing or blonking’ as in ‘blacks on camera’ to quote from the thread…

      It was a term it was claimed, that cameraman at the BBC are trained to do,to focus in and give attention to the minority representation in studio audiences. I think it is blonking not bloncing.

      From what I’ve seen this morning there’s an awful lot of bloncing/blonking going on!

    Ladies and gentlemen – boys girls – indeterminates – I give you the current iteration of the Conservative Party – the lost council seats has hit 1020 ( Sky ) ….. when I heard that I thought ‘go woke go broke ‘….
    But I suppose it’s a mix of Local Issues – blue labour not getting Tory votes and words like ‘truss ‘ and’ nut nut ‘ as well as rising Effing taxes paying for crap services …. But at least the public sector doesn’t do Fridays …..

    And printing money and throwing it at people doesn’t get votes …..

    Time for the Royal / Republic Weekend Thread …. Have a good one …

    Here we go again:
    Ukraine war: Russia accused of using phosphorus bombs in Bakhmut

    ‘White phosphorus weapons are not banned, but their use in civilian areas is considered a war crime.’

    ‘Writing on Twitter, Ukraine’s defence ministry said the phosphorus attack targeted “unoccupied areas of Bakhmut with incendiary ammunition”.’

    ‘The chemical has been used “repeatedly over the past 15 years”, including by US forces against IS fighters in Iraq and Syria, according to HRW.’

    So we get lots of description of how bad these bombs are and inferring Russia have done something really bad – but with small snippets interleaved which actually tell us it’s prefectly normal in war to use them like this.

    A complete non story which – as usual – degenerates into the usual pointless rhetoric and propaganda by repeating selected bits from all the other recent stories just to keep them fresh.

    And it’s not even news : they were using them months ago.

    The BBC seem to be getting desperate over Ukraine : I suspect this crucial counter offensive is not going quite according to plan.
