    C4 just ran a pretty questioning piece on FBI – CIA – Dem collusion in the tsunami of anti Trump shit…….

    Could this be the start of real journalism again in the UK?

    And maybe a path to truth and real freedom for the Western World?

    If so I for one salute C4.

    Come on BBC, get off your arses and evaluate this and start to report the truth as well!


    • TrickCyclist says:

      I was quite surprised tonight when Newsnight did a bit on it.
      As Humphrey Bogart joked in the movie ‘All Through the Night’:
      “Say, there’s more here than meets the FBI.”


    • Doublethinker says:

      I haven’t seen this piece but I would be astonished if C4 did anything that strayed far from the hyperglobalist MSM playbook of attacking Trump and his supporters whilst protecting Clinton, Obama and Biden and their supporters.
      In my view the MSM have been a key player in the undermining of democracy throughout the West over the past twenty plus years and I remain highly suspicious of anything they say or do.


      • digg says:

        Doublethinker….I think they are getting as near as they can to the lifeboats on the Dem ship before it hits the rocks, a sort of a belt and braces exercise. In fact typical left leaning msm hypocrisy.

        But I do suspect we will soon see another FBI shit shower thrown at Trump to try to take the heat off this.


    • Doublethinker says:

      In the past week I have heard two centre right pundits arguing that Britain needs a substantial ( not defined any more closely than that) amount of immigration because we need workers .
      TheUK would indeed benefit from the arrival of highly qualified engineers, medics, scientists even first class managers and entrepreneurs because these folks will each generate multiple jobs for us natives. The low or unskilled need not apply!
      So creaming off the top of the skill pile is sensible but for the UK but how many of such folks are there in the ‘developing’ world and wouldn’t it be better for their countries if they stayed at home? We certainly don’t want the useless mouths we are getting , legally and illegally , at the present time. It’s national suicide to keep letting these folks in.

      But Why would anyone from a developed country want to come here? Lousy weather, public services that cost a fortune but are grossly inefficient , taxed to the hilt , attacked if you are successful, unable to speak your mind , simmering racial tensions in many parts, hugely overcrowded, high inflation , rapidly falling educational standards , surrendering ground at an alarming rate to Wokism, a country which is being robbed of its heritage and a people who are losing their identity.
      Not an attractive proposition unless you are a criminal or planning to live on benefits and contribute little. But no politician and very few pundits and commentators dare to say this even though it is the truth and blinding obvious to anyone but a fool.


      • Up2snuff says:

        Double, we have at the very least 1.2 million unemployed people in the UK; I suspect it is more like 1.3 million to 1.4 million unemployed. Where is the outrage from the Labour Party and the BBC?

        Nowhere to be seen.


        • Fedup2 says:

          The thing which pre occupies me is ‘what will the red Labour Party be able to do differently to the blue lot ?’

          So much borrowed money has been thrown at welfare – where will labour get the sort of cash to buy votes if there ever is a free and fair election in the UK again ?

    Possibly the most BBC headline I have ever seen- ‘How is climate change affecting our mental health?’. It isn’t affecting mine at all, thank you for asking. Two sacred cows in one sentence- I bet they’re popping the champagne corks over that one.


    • StewGreen says:

      I can’t actually see such a news story on the BBC website
      I do see a radio prog of the same name
      but its 1 year old


    • Flotsam says:

      Climate change has obviously affected the mental health of the Just Stop Oil and XR loonies.

      There’s no doubt that the constant stream of negative climate change propaganda has affected the mental health of young people and impressionable adults. Let’s face it, images and talk of the World ending literally every day and probably every hour is damaging the young and vulnerable adults. The BBC is in the lead with this campaign of course. Rational thought has been pushed to one side and it has become a cultish religion.
      Government and big business are conspiring to delude us with measures which are expensive, impractical and simply not scientifically or economically effective.

    No newspapers is good newspapers edition

    It was Liverpool’s favourite sons The Beatles who sang: ‘I read the news today, oh boy’

    And in that vein our BBC gifts us the headline: ‘Eurovision was like Christmas’ – accompanied by a (very likely staged for the camera) photo of the statues of the Fab Four draped in the proxy war blue and yellow flags of Ukraine. However, I do recall John Lennon famously said something along the lines of: ‘All we are saying, is give peace a chance’ ?

    Meanwhile our BBC are insisting: Liverpool event better than we imagined, businesses say

    I’m hearing echoes of Keir Starmer trying to sound reasonable and insisting he’s spent the last three years listening to businesses – rather than what he’s really been doing which is testing himself and Mrs Starmer for covid nine times a week and plotting his big purge of the Corbynistas

    Our BBC online news website fails for some unknown reason to put up the morning’s press frontpages – someone forgot to pay Mr Abdulla in the corner shop his papers bill? I jest of course.

    Oh well, let’s survey the BBC’s own England news page instead – somewhat amazed as we are that such a thing exists – that’ll give us all the vital news.

    Greggs wins right to sell late-night sauage rolls

    Luckily, perhaps, there’s no Carry On film-style comics around these days to make some sort in innuendo out of that headline.

    Paltry vital news content there methinks

    Two poultry workers test positive for bird flu

    WHO no doubt on high alert ready to declare a worldwide pullet pandemic

    There’s a fair deal of crime reported by our BBC. Crime – the last resort of the local news hound scoundrel – a lot of it apparently committed against women.

    Mother-of-four stabbed to death named by police

    Most of the crimes reported are rapes – nasty – a good deal of it apparently committed by the cops themselves – talk about make-work schemes

    Met Police officer charged with rape after 2019 incident

    Rapper Slowthai appears in court after rape charge

    It’s not what you might think – he’s as white as a sheet. Cultural appropriation anyone?

    And there’s child abuse – very nasty

    North Yorkshire teacher Jamie Wheeler jailed for child sex abuse

    And then there’s the bloke done for talking about sex

    Chester man given nationwide sexual comments ban… A man has been banned from making sexual comments in public to any woman across England and Wales.

    I say bring back tomorrow’s chip papers BBC – give us back all those lying biased salacious trashy newspaper headlines of old.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Certainly a lot of sex about – ex labour Mp banged up for child porn for 2 years – now a blue Tory referred to the whips for more sex allegations ….

      I do like that greggs has won the right to sell late night sausage rolls … although I suspect the anti sausage roll legal team will get an injunction from an unnamed Albanian £ human rights £ judge £ late at night …

    BBC News

    The priority of News shows the confused propaganda messages from the kidults running news ….eg

    The lead is on the car industry moaning about tarrifs being imposed on exported cars without the right level of EU components –
    But the bbc hates cars – loves bikes . So not having a car industry and car exports is a good thing in bbc world ?

    Private rentals – comrade gove is going to make it even less attractive to be a landlord – good socialist stuff Michael – all that clubbing went to your head? ( obviously huge population growth doesn’t get a mention

    ( yesterday in a bbc phone in someone griped that the government should ‘do a furlough scheme ‘ for renters to siubsidise them )

    Next – moves to get illegals out of hotels and into rental type accommodation …. Bad in bbc terms – when the sensible thing would be throw a few back in the channel

    Then approved news – the blue labour have found £200 million of tax money to subsidise bus travel . But why pay at all ?

    Yesterday the BBC was crowing about a record level of ‘workers ‘ being on the ‘sick’ 2,500 000 – apparently . It seems it’s a result of the ‘workshy’ virus – the spread of which is facilitated by benefits and bbc approval and crap about work / life balance .

    I won’t mention the thing about promised hospital bits haven’t been built – because either everyone is sick or on 3 day weeks or on strike ….

    Without doubt we are currently ‘le..’ overseen by a rabble of incompetent chancers in government.

    However, the alternative, as pushed by a bunch of ex, current and invited back in BBC propagandist clowns from Vorderman, Femi, Esler, Oh’Brien, etc is infinitely more horrifying.

    They use the BBC and the BBC uses them to try and fool all the public all the time.

    We are clinging on to our barely affordable cars as long as we can until some kind of rational predictability becomes apparent on political planning, logistical networks, raw material realities, affordability, resale, cost hikes, etc are apparent, and held to account by any media not part of the Kool aid cabal.

    And if… IF… we ever have to get another, it will not be a Vauxhall. And I very much doubt more than a few in W1A studios has one either.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Guest – I think the greatest achievement of the coming red labour government will be the nationalisation of all green bits of Blighty in order to house the existing 10 million foreigners as well as the coming 20 million over the next 20 years and more .
      I mean – why need a green belt ? And without cars we won’t need so many roads . Travel restrictions can be put on people – more travel taxes and fines for leaving the living area approved for you – much better air quality – some 14 year old kid with asthma won’t die – so it’s all worth it …


      • TrickCyclist says:

        It’s not the roads, it’s the car parks. Just imagine the amount of housing that could be built on them.
        Or rather, we don’t have to imagine. Somebody is already imagining on our behalf.

      5th November 2012
      But it was another Turkish loan decision made that day among nearly €4 billion worth of lending that this week sparked uproar among Southampton Euro MPs and unions.

      Meeting at the bank’s headquarters in Luxembourg – a striking glass-roofed building, its 28 directors and 12 alternate directors signed off up to €190m of funding for a Ford Transit factory in Turkey.



      • Fedup2 says:

        Apparently Conservatives are meeting to discuss policy – so it’s a small meeting . I heard a bbc political correspondent accusing them of ‘nationalism ‘ . ‘Nationalism ‘- is a Bad Thing – unless you are an Irish Republican ( terrorists) a Scottish nationalist ( communist ) welsh nationalist ( benefits junkie ) …. Funny that …

          The back-to-Africa movement was based on the widespread belief among some European Americans in the 18th and 19th century United States that African Americans would want to return to the continent of Africa. In general, the political movement was an overwhelming failure; very few former slaves wanted to move to Africa.

        “Thorough research by the Home Office suggested that the impact of this benevolence would in any event be ‘relatively small, at between 5,000 and 13,000 immigrants per year up to 2010’. “Events proved these forecasts worthless.

      John Redwood is a good man but he is pissing in the wind.

      The government knows there are more people who rent than who are landlords, so it is currying favour with them. The fact that it will end up destroying the private rental sector is a price they are prepared to pay.

      – racism : prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
      – sexism : prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

    Just so people in the UK think its the norm to see SOOOOOO many black people


    • MarkyMark says:

      “If you tell Google that you would like to see images of ‘Black men’ the images that come up are all portrait photos of black men. Indeed, it takes more than a dozen rows of images before anybody who isn’t black comes up in the images. By contrast a search for ‘White men’ first throws up an image of David Beckham – who is white – but then the second is of a black model. From there every line of five images has either one or two black men in the line-up. Many of the images of white men are of people convicted of crimes with taglines such as ‘Beware of the average white man’ and ‘White men are bad’.”

    • Guest Who says:

      A few twigging it is a BBC rigged headline and the rest still delusional about national governmental net zero flip-flopping.

      Speaking of which, the media… courtesy of Enders…


      The challenge of net zero
      The full report is accessible at the link below.

      Climate change is again a core theme of this year’s Media and Telecoms 2023 & Beyond Conference, as it has been since 2021 when the UK hosted COP26.

      Published in March 2023, the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report[1] points to alarming warming trends due to rising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While 56 ‘hard pledge’ Paris Agreement signatories, including the UK, European Union (EU) and Japan, covering 53% of global GHGs, had laws by 2020 primarily focussed on reducing GHGs, the two largest emitters, ‘soft pledge’ China and the United States, contributing 38%, did not. Global GHGs will be 10% above 2010 levels by 2030 based on 2022 policy settings.[2] Echoing the messaging of COP26 and COP27, the IPCC implores signatories: “Emissions should be decreasing by now and will need to be cut by almost half by 2030, if warming is to be limited to 1.5°C.” Warming will also exceed the upper limit of 2°C by 2100, with 3°C forecast for that year.

      The climate crisis is already provoking irreversible changes to the environment, including biodiversity. Ocean sea levels and salinity are rising and currents are slowing. On land, weather conditions are more extreme, especially heatwaves and droughts. Warming will cruelly impact the most vulnerable countries in Central and South America, Africa and East Asia with further water and food poverty and insecurity.

      With many governments stymied by short-term political exigencies, it is businesses and people that must harbour the ambition for net zero that our planet requires.[3] Mandatory emissions reporting by businesses is required by ‘hard pledge’ Paris Agreement signatories, galvanising the adoption of plans for emissions reductions aimed at net zero, independently validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), as well as reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) for investors and shareholders. Many businesses in ‘soft pledge’ countries such as the US are also engaged in voluntary reporting and climate action.

      This year’s report on the climate change initiatives of TMT companies highlights their adoption of science-based targets to decarbonise operations. Many companies have revised their initial net zero targets for 2030 to the more realistic goal of halving scope 1 and 2 emissions, including by shifting from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy sources in line with global climate action objectives, while also addressing upstream and downstream emissions (scope 3). Case studies of the Guardian, WPP, Ad Net Zero, Bertelsmann, Vivendi, Sky, BT Group, and Virgin Media O2 provide best practice learnings.

      This year’s report also highlights the society-leading role of media companies towards the environment. Media businesses are mobilising their touchpoints with their audiences—from news, to magazines, to audio-visual productions such as films, TV programmes, games and advertising—to inform them of the climate crisis and win over hearts and minds in favour of climate action. It is now accepted that the climate crisis is the greatest challenge to face the world’s population and their progeny.
      “The media help shape the public discourse about climate change. This can usefully build public support to accelerate climate action. In some instances, public discourses of media and organised counter movements have impeded climate action, exacerbating helplessness and disinformation and fuelling polarisation, with negative implications for climate action.”
      IPCC, Sixth Assessment Report, page 18

      Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation – an inquiry into government corruption, lies to secret courts, the weaponization of the US intelligence apparatus, the FBI’s attempt to take down a sitting president – has concluded.

      “The FBI discounted or willfully ignored material information that did not support the narrative of a collusive relationship between Trump and Russia.”

        People ask why I find it difficult to write about the Durham report empirically confirming everything we previously outlined in the past five years. Here’s my answer.

        Eventually, after the shock & awe of the Durham confirmations wear off, I am hopeful that people will stand back and realize the bigger question that covers all of the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy nonsense. This was a United States government operation to conduct full-throated surveillance on a U.S. presidential candidate, and then remove that candidate from the office of the presidency after his victory in the 2016 election.

        With John Durham outlining in granular details how the FBI, DOJ and larger intelligence apparatus acted politically to weaponize government on behalf of an allied presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton, a bigger question remains. There never was any merit to the Trump-Russia nonsense, so what exactly were Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann doing for two years?

    They say they are working from home.
    Apparently they are keeping office hours and working all day at the holiday resort in Spain.
    Definitely not sunbathing on the beach, just sitting in front of their computers.

    It’s possible that they are actually doing this but somehow I think they may well be finding multiple reasons to not be sitting in a room in front of their screen.

    “Mr Durham and his investigation are not likely to disappear from the national headlines in the immediate future.”




    Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook restricting a story about Joe Biden’s son during the 2020 election was based on FBI misinformation warnings.

    The New York Post alleged leaked emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop showed the then vice-president was helping his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.

    • Fedup2 says:

      Not the BBC – but alistair heath in the DT on the blue Labour Party

      STARTS It is time for the Conservative Party to get real: it is on course for a landslide defeat of historic proportions, brought about by its own cowardice and incompetence. There is too much delusion in Toryland, too much residual hope that Rishi Sunak will pull off a miracle, too little honest appraisal of public opinion. Poll after poll paints the same picture: yes, the Prime Minister is relatively well liked, but his party isn’t.

      The current 17-point gap may narrow: Sir Keir Starmer may overreach, frightening some electors. But barring a major black swan event, it is overwhelmingly likely that Starmer will be PM next year, quite possibly without even needing the support of other Left-wing parties. There will be tactical voting, and he may win the most votes even in England, as Tony Blair did in 1997 and 2001. He will wield immense power.

      Why am I so pessimistic? The Tories have failed in almost every way, and repeatedly betrayed their electorate, in wanton, even occasionally gleeful, fashion. They don’t seem to believe in conservatism any longer, and all of their old-anti-Labour arguments now lack credibility. Even their most ardent supporters cannot list more than a tiny number of successes, or point to any reason other than “Labour will be even worse” for continuing to back them. Under such circumstances, why wouldn’t floating voters opt to give the other lot a chance?

      There have been too many broken promises. In 1991, 1.6 million people in the UK were paying the 40p tax rate, 3.5 per cent of adults; by 2027, 7.8 million people will be paying the 40p, 45p or some even higher rate – 14 per cent of adults, the IFS predicts. Every Tory manifesto since 2010 pledged to cut immigration, yet, farcically, the latest net migration figures are expected to hit between 650,000 and 997,000, a record.

      Which genius imagined that a rapid increase in the population, combined with building less, would be electorally successful? Housebuilding, already woefully low, is falling precipitously, partly as a result of yet more red tape (this time with a green tinge) combined with the imbecilic refusal to allocate massively more land to residential development. Reforming the state, breaking with Blair-Brownism, delivering on manifesto promises, being truly conservative, it turns out, is too difficult, too costly, too unseemly: the whining is unbearable.

      The Tories have presided over out-of-control inflation, mass public sector waste, widespread strikes, declining real wages, an explosion in the national debt and far lower growth. They have made Britain a less conservative nation than it was in 2010, undermined the work ethic, penalised self-reliance and promoted dependence on the state. They have shifted the climate of opinion to the Left. They have undermined capitalism, trashed competitiveness, introduced myriad regulations, waged war on enterprise, fuelled envy and jealousy, squeezed the City and normalised anti-free market prejudice. They are nationalising businesses and picking winners.

      They have continued to undercut the family and presided over declines in fertility to levels far lower than women would like. The drive to reform welfare has stalled, with 5.3 million stuck on out of work benefits. State education has improved, especially reading skills, but is back on a path of union-driven decline, and they have institutionalised a scandalous discrimination against private schools. The railways, roads and airports are a disaster, and they have launched a war on cars.

      Energy policy is a calamity: they have embraced net zero with no plan, have taxed North Sea oil and gas to death, refuse to build enough nuclear, and risk horrific blackouts. If you are a suburban, aspirational, hard-working family, desperate to own your own home, to save money, to educate your children, to have two cars and to travel abroad, you are being hammered in every possible way and made to feel bad for your ambition and effort. What was the point of voting Tory?

      The police’s flirtation with a zero tolerance approach is over. The Tories have done far too little to recapture cultural and educational institutions now totally dominated by woke revolutionaries. They have even passed laws that make this worse. They have empowered the Bank of England and other financial bodies to pursue anti-Tory policies. School children are taught an atavistic, terrifying version of environmentalism as a secular religion, rather than balanced analysis.

      The Government has failed to take on woke capital, and is content to see museums “decolonised”. The Tories have had some successes fighting extreme trans activists, but have failed to tackle critical race theory. They have allowed a malign ideology to take hold that depicts Britain as a uniquely evil nation: what hope is there for conservatism if this deranged viewpoint becomes hegemonic among the next generation? Set against that, a handful of mini-victories – new laws to crack down on motorway protesters, say – matter little.

      Even though government health spending was 13.5 per cent higher in real terms in 2022 compared with 2019, the NHS is imploding. “Free” healthcare has led to a surge in demand, and encouraged irresponsible behaviours; a mental health epidemic is raging, partly because of lockdowns, and the number of beds has fallen to 2.43 per 1,000 people versus 5.73 in France and 7.82 in Germany, countries that rightly embrace private, competitive insurance in their health systems. The Tory paradox is that they are being destroyed by their absurd support for totemic Labour policies: Clement Attlee’s archaic NHS model, his socialist housing planning system, Tony Blair’s high-migration economic model.

      Last but not least, Brexit, where the Tories seem intent on turning their one great triumph – albeit one imposed on them – into a damp squib. Why did they fail to work out how to ditch more EU regulations, including the ones their voters hated so much? Why can’t they design incentives to woo companies such as Vauxhall, and hopefully the likes of Tesla too? Why pursue a nihilistic semi-socialist tax, regulatory, fiscal and monetary policy that is delivering Eurozone-style 0.1 per cent growth a quarter?

      The Tories are as bad as the Eurocrats they replaced. It has been a catastrophic record of failure, an unpardonable exercise in second-hand, pantomime conservatism. Voters don’t like being taken for fools, and their revenge will be savage.ENDS

    Tonight, the BBC’s promotion of women’s football took on a new level of absurdity when two WSL games were given billing ahead of the crucial and high profile Championship play off semi-final second leg between Middlesbrough and Coventry. This was on the BBC’s “Football” and “Scores And Fixtures” pages.

    This was noticed by myself and a number of others who questioned the billing reasonably and politely within the comments section of the WSL Everton vs Arsenal game. You can guess what happened next. All of these comments were deleted for being off topic. Fair enough. However, the comments from the one poster who defended the billing order were allowed to stand, despite being off topic too. So much for consistency.

    I’ve encountered this sort of BBC moderation before. The “Off Topic” excuse is used frequently to delete comments they don’t like, but it doesn’t matter how off topic your comments are if they fit the narrative. As far as women’s football is concerned there is a clear agenda to promote it beyond its actual level of interest and no criticism will be tolerated.

      Former England captain Faye White and her ex-international team-mate Casey Stoney have called for a mix of male and female referees for future tournaments, amid criticism of Qin Liang, the Chinese official who took charge of England’s contentious 3-0 win in Valenciennes.

      “At the World Cup, it should be the best referee for the job,” White told the Daily Mail. Stoney, Phil Neville’s former assistant in the England set-up and now manager of Manchester United, has suggested that many of the female officials in France are out of their depth, telling the BBC: “Where are these referees refereeing week in, week out? Then we put them on the biggest stage.

      Liang, who usually officiates low-intensity matches in front of tiny crowds, did not issue red cards to Cameroon for an early elbow on Nikita Parris and a stamp on Steph Houghton”

    The bbc love victims so, here’s a victim for you….

    “Lee Rigby’s son Jack, 12 – who was so shocked by his father’s murder he lost the ability for talk for months – speaks about the ordeal for the first time and reveals how he wants to honour his hero dad.
    Jack Rigby, 12, son of Lee, is raising money for the charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers
    He hopes to raise £10,000 to mark the 10th anniversary of his father’s death”


    Instead, the last story from the bbc in this, we have:


    “Lee Rigby killer Michael Adebowale in hospital with Covid-19”
