    Mark Harper is , apparently , the current Transport Secretary . He replaced someone called ;Shapps ‘ who assigned “£120,000 000 – that’s 120 million pounds of taxpayers borrowed cash to closing roads ,,, c word doesn’t make it – for him – or his replacements or his PM … the blue Labour Party …

      What these irresponsible MPs fail to grasp is how much injury and resulting financial damage due to all their idiotically and hurried road infrastructure changes have caused.

      It is almost as though they wanted to increase deaths, injury, and inconvenience.

        A couple of weeks of weeks ago we were travelling down the M1 and our car suddenly lost power on ‘smart’ motorway. Fortunately we were close to the slip road for an exit and power wasn’t completely lost. Believe me, it is a scary situation to be in. If I had a noose, I would string up whoever first thought of the idea and the minister who agreed it.

      Que ? Belingcat came out with a story that a Texas shooter had said all kinds of “far right” stuff on an obscure Russian social media site
      so obscure (in English) that no on had read his posts
      People reiterate their claim Bellingcat is a state intelligence disinformation op, calling itself “factcheckers”

          ‘Elon Musk is getting garbage information because he’s entirely flooded in this far-right info space.’

          That is absolutely typical of the kind of thing the Leftist activists write. It reads like some spiteful teenager wrote it. The majority of BBC HYS comments are of a similar style.

    Javad Marandi: Why the BBC battled to name top businessman

    ‘His identification came after an enormous legal battle, all the way to the doors of the Court of Appeal.

    So why did we do it, and why did we win?’

    Here’s why the BBC say they did it:

    ‘And this is where the affair became potentially serious for media freedom.’

    And here is why they REALLY did it – to use headlines like this:
    ‘Javad Marandi: Tory donor’s link to massive money laundering probe.’

    What has the fact he is a Tory donor got to do with it ?. Yet it seems that when Labour get dirty money (and usually in secret), the BBC don’t tell us.

    What is most astounding about this article for me is that if I’ve learned anything from the ‘modern’ BBC (who no longer represent the British people at all) is that they are VERY happy to withhold information about individuals when it doesn’t suit their agenda. Particularly when they are not white.

    I notice we are not told what this personal crusade cost us. No doubt they would refuse to answer if someone asked – just like they refused to say how much they pay Getty.

      This shows the bbc commitment to saving precious funds.

      When it’s Labour they don’t battle at all, legal or otherwise.

      Trust them.


      • Peter Grimes says:

        Nor do they comment on the fact that some of the stolen money was used to bribe EU politicians, who Al Beeb would have us believe to be virtuous saints.

        No, they would rather use innuendo to suggest Marandi was involved in the corruption and that he was not a fit UK donor to the Tory party. Unless and until Marandi is charged, Al Beeb should stfu, but won’t.

    From the DT:
    ‘BBC to review immigration coverage after complaints of ‘liberal bias’ and ‘cultural sneer’’

    So once again the BBC are investigating themselves over bias claims which I’m quite sure will come up with a couple of points to address but claim that overall, the BBC is not biased.

    What about OFCOM ?. Why are they absent from this conversation ?.

    This comment summed it up for me:

    ‘I used to respect the BBC.
    I now despise the BBC from the bottom of my heart. They have abused me for being a right leaning white heterosexual educated in the state system and high rate tax payer,
    They hate everything about me
    1. right leaning, that makes me a racist homophobic misogynistic bully
    2. White. That make me a racist who has benefited from slavery.
    3. Heterosexual. That makes me homophobic, misogynistic bully and rapist.
    4. State educated. That makes me populist thick imbecile with no nuance.
    5 higher rate tax cuts payer means I have no idea what it is like for the poor. I must pay more and I am a privileged beast.
    After the last 7 years paying to be abused I hate them more than they can understand.’

    What a complete farce the BBC and OFCOM have become.

    What the US lets its allies do and some whistful residual pacificism edition

    One wonders for a moment, could it be that some message has gone out from on high – stop demoralising the plebs for day or two, it’s becoming somewhat counter-productive?

    Top of the BBC online newspaper line-up is their new left-leaning best favourite title the ‘i’: UK inflation set to fall sharply next week – with lower energy bills to follow

    Like a 2010 TV prime ministerial election broadcast with both Cameron and Brown insisting on repeating their irritating catchphrases: “I agree with Nick”…so the press are our uni-party on this novel trumped up optimism…

    Daily Mail: Energy bills to fall £450 as cap is slashed

    Daily Express: Energy bills to tumble

    I’m reminded of that old mean Scots gag: “Put your coat on hen, I’m going out to the pub… so I’m turning yon heating off!”

    The fallen out of favour Guardian didn’t get the memo and slips to mid-table obscurity with former fans the BBC press reviewers (they’re banging on about the NHS, in case your were wondering)

    UK ‘talking itself into economic decline’ Negativity about direction of Britain becoming self-fulfilling prophesy, says Hunt (Telegraph)

    Household bills to fall by £500 as Putin’s energy war fails (Telegraph)

    Did the Torygraph just let the cat out of the bag as to some quiet polling just received warning our masters that the public is not so gungho for Ukraine perhaps? The publicly available polling hints at growing doubts in the US, despite Eurovision:

    …recent developments may have led to a perception that the war could be reaching a stalemate. Last week, more Americans believed Ukraine was beating Russia (31% to 18%). This week, as many believe Russia is ahead as say Ukraine is (23% to 23%); 36% say neither is (YouGov US, 17 March 2023)

    This tendency could turn into (heaven forfend) anti-war sentiment in the west…

    Trump says he would ‘solve’ war in Ukraine in 24 hours if reelected (The Hill)

    How Trump presidency could change Ukraine war… Over the course of his short but eventful political career, Donald Trump has shown a predisposition to be sympathetic to Russian President Vladimir Putin (BBC, Anthony Zurcher) – the same tired old Russia collusion trope…

    Despite: The ‘explosive’ Durham report exposed the Russian collusion hoax… not just the lies around the Russian collusion hoax but also showed how “compromised” the FBI and justice department have become… “The Democrats and the media’s complicity in this saga have been … well demonstrated. “This report found the FBI should never have launched its investigation and that it had no real evidence before it launched its probe and it knew that.”… Sky News host Rita Panahi says (Sky News Australia)

    Milošević, that one-eyed Taliban bloke in Afghanistan, Sadam, Gaddafi… the winning run apparently stops there: Arab leaders welcome back pariah Assad (Telegraph)

    Our BBC is in deep mourning mode: Syria: Dismay and fear as Bashar al-Assad returns to Arab fold

    But they’re still plugging away at the Ukraine war as their top story: F-16 fighter jets: US lets allies give jets to Ukraine (BBC) – I do like the not so subtle hint that all European national sovereignty in foreign policy is now superceded by US State Department directives.

    And one has to smile at the BBC’s whistful residual pacificism on display here: Japan’s pacifism hangs in balance as China and North Korea threats loom… Toshiyuki Mimaki says he remembers crying as he looked up at a blackened sunset after the nuclear bomb hit Hiroshima – we do hope you are sitting comfortably, one of those poetic sub-Fergal Keane from your own correspondent word picture shrouded opinion pieces is about to follow: ...the constant redefinition of pacifism stretches the principle to its breaking point. – they said a true thing there.

    The Telegraph still pulling out all the Stoppards: Tom Stoppard Britain can’t let the man Putin hates most die in prison

    On a lighter sunnier note – for those that can still afford it – there’s overseas holidays to be sold: Gracious escapes Your guide to the world’s grandest hotels (Telegraph); HTSI Travel special The best destinations of 2023 (FT); 35 of the best restaurants in Europe (Guardian); How to holiday well (Guardian) – the socialistic Gruan double-dipping holiday features showing perhaps our public sector crowd aint’t so hard up as they pretend?

    Meanwhile, slipping a little downmarket think Mike Leigh as the ‘i’ goes Nuts In May: The best camping deals for half-term

    Third baby for Johnsons ‘within weeks’ (Telegarph)

    In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love (Tennyson) and our rather feminised Times newspaper provides lashings of hunky soft porn for the ladies: Green king Monty Don has spoken about how our gardens reflect our shifting relationship with nature; Lust for life the married couple’s guide to bedtime; Giles Conran what I know about wine and women

    Tomorrow’s world?

    Universal weeping and gnashing of teeth [Luke 13:28] over A.I.

    In Depth How AI actually could become a threat to human life on Earth (‘i’ newspaper, capital E for Earth in their house-style) – one nostalgically recalls the not so distant past when AI and robot intelligence was just some jokey and finally story on the frontpage of the Daily Star – down there with Seagulls, heat waves, cold snaps and Beavers

    Now it’s up there with Putin and Pandemics

    Schools bewildered by AI advances, say head teachers (BBC)

    AI ‘is clear and present danger to education’ (Times)

    My AI boyfriend Bob was a better lover than any man I’ve ever had (Telegraph) – Computer says Yes? – and on that note, we’ll leave it there.

      There’s no chance that the police will find her attacker, they’re not interested.

      I was at the corner about three months after the murderous attack and saw her being abused by four masked men…and I don’t mean they were wearing those pathetic pieces of cloth worn by virtue signallers; these were full-face Halloween style masks. Very sinister…

      When I spoke to a couple of idle plod, who were propping up a nearby fence, one of them immediately turned away, more interested in watching a game of Sunday football. The other wasn’t much better, but at least he wandered over to “keep an eye on things”.

    Maybe I read to much into something – but using my last few days subscribed to The Times ( what a crap paper ) there is a picture of the WEF meeting in Hiroshima with the 7 plus one ‘world leaders ‘ waving at the camera . The caption below it has ‘ Uk PM rishi sunak second from right ‘…. Which made me choke on me tea …

    TOADY Watch #2 – oh! the irony! again!!!

    Still talking Turkey. Surely the BBC must see what they have done to former President Trump, are doing to President Biden and Prime Ministers Modi and Netanyahu reflected back to them in their coverage of the Turkish Presidential Election.


    Amazing! What a lack of self-awareness at the BBC.

    President Erdogun has complete control of the Judiciary (Jonny Dymond) in Turkey. Prime Minister Netanyahu is trying to restore democratic control over the Judiciary in Israel. Former President Trump did not accept the result of the 2020 Presidential Election in the US. There are concerns expressed in advance of the Election last weekend by Kemal Kilicdaroglu that the vote might be rigged.

    Prime Minister Modi has featured on the BBC’s Hate Scale, not least for buying cheap Russian oil for the population of his country which is now the most populous nation in the world.

    President Biden doesn’t feature – at all – on the BBC’s Hate Scale, despite him being an autocratic President, far more so than former President Trump.


  16. vlad says:

    The BBC gave a very anodyne account of the Durham Report on the fake Russia-Trump collusion before sweeping it under the rug completely.

    In fact it should be a scandal of Watergate proportions, at least.

    Here, Michael Voris comments on it, and in particular the nefarious role of ‘saint’ Obama – that darling of the BBC – in politicising, weaponising and corrupting so many institutions, such as the Intelligence Services and the Justice System – even the IRS. What a scumbag he was and is.

    There’s been a lot about fat people on just lately.
    I know it’s one of the usual distraction topics used to get attention away from things like mass immigration and other failures of government but if they are going to have discussions about fatties then they should present the whole picture instead of just bits of it.

    They keep on about the cost of fatties to the nhs. Fair enough, they do cost more than normal sized people so that sum could be put in the minus column.

    On average they die earlier saving how much in pensions?
    This could be put into the plus column.

    Non fatties may live to their 80’s on average but they also get illnesses and diseases such as cancers, Alzheimer’s, hips and other procedures so if anything they probably cost more in the long run than the fatties who die early.

    Fatties spend lots on food keeping the likes of McD in business and providing jobs.
    They probably holiday more in the UK as they don’t fit into aeroplane seats properly so their money stays at home.

    If anything, we should applaud fatties who are going above and beyond in their patriotic efforts to get the UK going again.
    The same goes for smokers.

    Instead of clapping for the nhs we should be clapping for the fatties and smokers who deserve medals for their actions with a special mention for fatties who smoke.

          Now we have the Wagner group leader who was quoted as an oracle of information when he criticised Putin being called a liar when he says Russia control Bakhmut.

          We are being subjected to lies and propaganda on a scale I can hardly believe. The biggest liar of all – Zelensky – is given carte blanche to say anything he wants without any of the media questioning it.

          I am now at the point where I trust what Putin says more than Zelensky. I reached tipping point when they said they shot down every missile – including all 6 hypersonic missiles – over Kyiv. I almost laughed when Russia said it was more than they had launched. It’s 100% propaganda for idiots.

      Satan is a scientist? Satanists don’t believe in Satan, but still ‘pray’ to him/her/it? Why bother?!

      As an atheist, this makes absolutely no sense at all, atheists don’t believe in Satan any more than they do in God. You can’t have an ‘Anti-Christ’ without a ‘Christ’ to begin with, can you? Basically, you still have to be a Christian (or a Jew or a Muslim) to believe in Satan, just a seriously confused and stupid one.

      This is just immature Americans protesting (in the most offensive way they can imagine) about their parents bringing them up in the Christian faith.

      Mind you, if Satan is LGBQT+ that might explain a few things.

    In the lecture, Rand admonishes American businessmen for apologizing for capitalism and for, in some cases, directly funding detractors of the free market. Notably, she says that “It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.” She also answers audience questions after the lecture.

      When autocue-readers think they’re more important than the news they’re supposed to present, the toxic, wibbly, hissy-fitting is always going to make their employers’ (under-managers) life more difficult, so the easy cop out for them is to try and make a story of the whole sorry state of broadcasting, and then try and get some other kidult in the spot, so the sheeple-swooners can all start again with their magazine pictures Sellotaped to their bedroom walls, and back copies of ‘Hello’ magazine adorning their skinny-latte tables!

      Did anyone hear a caller named Robert on the Clare Foges LBC show just now?

      He should run the whole shebang! Marvellous insight to real commercial issues, and left her standing – or sweating (perspiring) a bit, but at least she is fair, erudite and entertaining, so I’ll certainly listen again to her show while I pot up my tomatoes in the greenhouse!

      They do ‘balance’ on LBC, I usually ignore the shallow lot like Lammy, but Ali Miraj, Nick Ferrari and Iain Dale are excellent! I love the leftie chat with Nick Abbot, and James O’Brien, it’s all just interesting stuff depending on the time of day – something the BBC are woefully inadequate about, so I’ve just given up on any of their radio stuff as well.

    Its that time of years again…

    “There was something vaguely familiar about the BBC’s Matt McGrath reporting that our “overheating” world was set to break the 1.5°C threshold within the next five years, meaning average global temperatures would be 1.5°C warmer than they were in the second half of the 19th Century. At the same time last year, McGrath told us there was a 50-50 chance the world would hit 1.5°C “over the next five years”. And the year before that, BBC Science Editor David Shukman reported it was likely that the key 1.5°C “global temperature limit” would be broken – yes you guessed it – “in one of the next five years”.
    But it might not surprise you to learn that this particular alarmist song has been around for even longer than its recent reappearance in the charts. In early 2019, the Guardian reported that “within five years”, global temperatures could temporarily climb to 1.5°C above 19th Century levels. The Guardian noted the view of the Met Office that previous results had “demonstrated the accuracy of such decadal reports”, which were said to cover the ground between short-term weather forecasts and long-range climate models. For its part, the Met Office stated as far back as 2017 there was a 39% chance of one month at 1.5°C within – you guessed it – five years.
    Missing from all these stories is the admission that the 1.5°C threshold has no basis in science and is just a political invention designed to hasten the implementation of Net Zero. Suggestions that the planet will encounter ‘tipping points’ are pseudoscientific fear-mongering produced by climate models fed with improbable climate data. As we have noted, the recently published Clintel report –The Frozen Climate Views of the IPCC – showed that about half the work produced by the IPCC and the wider scientific community is corrupted by incorporating predictions of up to 5°C warming within 80 years. It is a fair comment to say that almost nobody now believes these predictions are remotely plausible…”

      The plan is to combine the bogus climate change narrative with the bogus germ theory narrative to give you the mother of all nonsense narratives.
      “How climate law can help to prevent the next pandemic”
      These people are sick. They have already been planting the idea into peoples’ brains that ‘climate change’ is increasing the risk of a new ‘pandemic’, which is penciled in for around 2025 once Trilateralist Starmer takes power in this god-forsaken country and the WHO’s new pandemic laws have been unilaterally accepted by every nation on earth. Then it’s going to get very interesting as I won’t be complying with any of this rubbish and there are millions across the planet who won’t either.


      • Philip_2 says:

        It gets worse. COVID was just the start for a global programe and ban any UK opt outs, that we had. So this means we loose all UK independence on the ‘next’ big (or small) Pandemic.

        This is global politics run by the UN. The same people that run the IPCC net-zero claims and why the BBC constantly claims the end-of-the-world-is-nigh unless we URGENTLY all sign up to world ‘medication and forced ‘vaccinations’. No-body will be spared.

        Global socialism leading to Chinese style Marxism that liberal meaning Marxists in the the BBC approves of. The deadline is the end of this month for the UK to sign up…

        Our PM is a member of WEF. But it may go to a commons vote or just go through ‘on the nod’ with the Labour party voicing no objection.

        The World Health Organization’s “Pandemic Treaty” is a direct threat to our individual liberties, as it would give this UN agency unprecedented power to override national laws and individual rights during “health emergencies.” We cannot let this power grab go unchallenged.

        By signing this petition, you can put pressure on the UK Government to oppose the Pandemic Treaty in the upcoming 76th World Health Assembly (May 21-30) and protect our civil liberties.

        Sign the petition now and join the fight to safeguard our individual freedoms before they go completely.

        Cultural Marxism by another means via the UN.

          This is why people have to understand the next ‘pandemic’ will be as fake as the first one. There never was a virus. There are no viruses. This is the problem. Most people are simply incapable of understanding how deep the lies go. If they were to realise just how badly they have been duped, none of this would be possible and humanity would probably be saved from the absolute digital hell that is coming. Unfortunately people are too lazy and too distracted. This is what 12 years in indoctrination camps and too much BBC does to the human mind.

      I’ve been here for 83 years and I can assure you that in all that time In southern England at least I have seen absolutely nothing to suggest that our climate is changing.
      Scorching hot summers and freezing cold winters are and always have been par for the course as have mild winters and wet, windy summers.
      I will sit up and take notice of the climate nuts when we have a New Years Day with temperatures in the 90s.
      How many more years must I live to see that?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Lefty – I think it’s similar to medieval ‘thought ‘ which blamed god every time something bad happened . The kidults have replaced God with ‘climate ‘ – but thinking about it they do have a number of things in common – neither can be understood by mankind – but God wins as He made the climate ….

        Extreme climate events ( once in a lifetime since records began – is also another form of witchcraft )


      • Mik the sceptic says:

        Lefty –
        Agewise, you are slightly younger than my parents, who, despite the ravages of weather (as us normal folk call it) are both still here – and I hope that they – and your good self – will, for many years to come, be here to tell the tales.
        Extremes in weather are normal.
        But normal these days is challenged, misinterpreted and re-written by people who are infinitely more clever than I. These academics and scientists have become the new go-to for governments of all persuasions to chant the ‘follow the science’ mantra.
        The only trouble being that everyone believes them without question. The young (as Fed suggests) have adopted this as their new religion and harangue their parents and everyone they come into contact with, into conversion.

        If I can identify as Mystic Meg for a minute, I foresee one of our own – but yet to register bloggers of the future – one Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg, at 83 years of age, sitting in a rocking chair in Southern England, penning her latest book “Herregud, jag fattade fel”.

      The Great Leap Forward (Second Five Year Plan) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign led by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from 1958 to 1962. CCP Chairman Mao Zedong launched the campaign to reconstruct the country from an agrarian economy into a communist society through the formation of people’s communes. Mao decreed that efforts to multiply grain yields and bring industry to the countryside should be increased. Local officials were fearful of Anti-Rightist Campaigns and they competed to fulfill or over-fulfill quotas which were based on Mao’s exaggerated claims, collecting non-existent “surpluses” and leaving farmers to starve to death. Higher officials did not dare to report the economic disaster which was being caused by these policies, and national officials, blaming bad weather for the decline in food output, took little or no action. Millions of people died in China during the Great Leap, with estimates ranging from 15 to 55 million, making the Great Chinese Famine the largest or second-largest[1] famine in human history.[2][3][4]

      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. The small number of freed slaves who did settle in Africa—some under duress—initially faced brutal conditions, due to diseases to which they no longer had biological resistance.[1] As the failure became known in the United States in the 1820s, it spawned and energized the abolitionist movement. In the 20th century, the Jamaican political activist and black nationalist Marcus Garvey, members of the Rastafari movement, and other African Americans supported the concept, but few actually left the United States.

    Top item on the bbc at the moment is that Schofield has left his daytime tv slot. This apparently is the most important thing in the world. I’m more interested in the surge in myocarditis in babies in the UK , as opposed to it being virtually unknown previously. What medical procedure could the mothers have received nine months ago which may have a bearing? No mention you-know-where, of course.
    Back to Schofield, I am convinced that when he realised that he wasn’t a member of a chosen group, he decided to hop onto the easiest bandwagon (bbc preferred list is pa4is, p00fs and paedos) he decided that wearing heels and being called Loretta would get him a lifetime gig. That didn’t pan out too well.
    Finally, some excellent news (bbc category #3). Eric Gills statue outside the bbc has been damaged again as the restorers kindly left their scaffolding up overnight with no security. Hats off to the perpetrator.

        No, Southern UK. If I search for “daily mail myocarditis”, this summary appears too :-

        15 newborns in Wales and south-west England have been struck down with severe myocarditis since June 2022. Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle that can occur following certain infections, such as COVID-19. The condition is caused by the body’s immune system overreacting to being infected and causing inflammation, which can stay in the heart even after the virus has been cleared.2 Several college sports programs have reported cases of myocarditis, which can affect the muscle and electrical system, and is most often caused by viral infections like the coronavirus.
