    If the bBC doesn’t like someone you can usually tell when they “report” the same news on the front page, for hours and hours, or days

    At the moment they seem to have it in for the Home Secretary

    The same story has been running for hours, watch this space

    Remember partygate, lets face it how could we forget it

      She seems to get more reactions than BBC, staff and ex staff, but most still appear less than complimentary.

      Was JO’Bsworth ever properly held to account for his unethical actions at the BBC or later?

      Does the BBC have an Ethics Adviser to ignore too?

    Pride went from a solitary march to an entire month of celebration, with massive state and corporate buy-in. Ditto black history awareness which originally lasted a week.

    Mental health week now seems to have morphed into an entire season, which no doubt delights everyone at W1A. Airing and sharing personal struggles being encouraged at every turn, just not so much if you’re white.



    • MarkyMark says:

      In an intensely personal and often surprising film for BBC Two, Alastair Campbell candidly talks about his experience living with depression and explores if radical new treatments can make a difference.

      Alastair is best known for his role as Tony Blair’s formidable and often contentious spin doctor, but, away from the public eye, he has been dogged by crippling bouts of depression for most of his life. Some days, just getting out of bed is too hard. Therapy and anti-depressant medication is helping him keep his head above water, but is that really the best he can hope for?

      Encouraged by his family, Alastair sets out on a journey to explore if cutting edge science can offer him – and the millions of people like him – the hope of one day living depression-free. As he tries to understand his depression better, he also reflects on key events in his life and asks if they could have had a negative effect on his mind.

    Turned on BBC1 at about 1.25 pm wanting to see the weather forecast and why the promised sun had not so far appeared.

    What did I get? Two gay men getting married in what looked like traditional Indian garb, outdoors.
    It was something like the ‘Garden of Unity’ at the Chelsea Flower Show,
    Next up, also from the show, the ‘Garden of Love’ or some such. Built to recall refugees fleeing.

    FFS. The Chelsea Flower Show used to be about flowers.
    In BBCLand it is just another woke leftist w***fest.

      Has the BBC moved from news to social engineering …. YES.
      “By 2020, the BBC wants its employees to comprise 50% women, 8% disabled people, 8% lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people and 15% people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds.{bbc.co.uk 14sep2017}”


      • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

        I believe that the ‘black’ part of the 15% is 3% with the rest being Asian etc.

        Looking at the adverts for example the 3% are massively over represented with very few Arabs or Hong Kong types seen.

        Same with tv programs where you always see mixed race marriages, black and white, but very few with the rest.

        Is it because you can tell they are doing their virtue signalling when it’s a black character but it’s sometimes not so obvious with, for example, an Asian or paler skinned ethnic.

        The 12% are being taken over by the 3%

        Still, there’s always acting places for white men as they are invariably the criminal/rapist/murderer.

    It’s the first day of the Chelsea Flower Show today. What gardens do you think the BBC will show us? Actually none, they would rather show us a gay marriage taking place there for some reason. And the next item on the local news?- an old garden being restored and noteworthy to the BBC for no other reason then it was designed by a gay couple. I have nothing against the people concerned but can’t the BBC just show us things to enjoy without the forced narrative?

    Yes, Markh, the forced narrative. Mrs V was watching Chelsea Flower Show this arvo, they did a piece on gardens for and by kids. Guess what colour the first kid talked to was? Answers on a postcard please.

    England census map showing second common language of an area

    • Sluff says:

      Something missing from the map.
      I strongly suspect that English is the second language in various places. Tower Hamlets maybe?


      • MarkyMark says:

        The 2019 mid-year population for the borough is estimated at 324,745. British Bangladeshis are the largest ethnic group (32%).[1] The 2011 census showed Tower Hamlets to have the highest proportion of Muslims of any English local authority and that Muslims heavily outnumbered Christians.[2] The borough has more than 40 mosques, Islamic centres and madrasahs,[3] including the East London Mosque, Britain’s largest.[4] Brick Lane’s restaurants, neighbouring street market and shops provide the largest range of Bangladeshi cuisine, woodwork, carpets and clothes in Europe.[5][6] The Lane is also a major centre of hipster subculture.[7][8][9]



        Let us be absolutely clear that the disqualification was nothing to do with the police, who completely ignored it. It was done by four brave citizens who lost a fortune on it, because they are liable for everybody’s costs, including Lutfur Rahman’s.

        On the issue of potential Tower Hamletses, they are out there in other places. Commissioner Mawrey mentioned Slough and he mentioned the problem of Woking, where the returning officer himself said that he did not believe that he had declared an accurate result in all his time as a returning officer. There are issues in Bradford and in other parts of the country. Indeed, we heard from one of your colleagues, who read that extraordinary email that was circulated in the Batley and Spen by-election. That would be typical here.

    The BBC pushing the horrible effects of landfill on local peoples health. What they seem to be overlooking is the actual causes.

    In almost every instance they use the residents complaining are in new what I call “orange houses” estates built alongside long-standing landfill operations.

    The problem therefore is not putting landfill near housing but putting housing near landfill.

    I am amazed that this fact was not even mentioned, it’s the same old same old of trying to paint the stupid as the victims.

    We produce as a nation a shit load of waste, it has to be dealt with, historically it has been by isolating it from habitation but as house building runs rife the greedy house builders are creating this problem and not the tip operators.

    I am just staggered that the wave of young uni educated yoof experts they are rolling on cannot see this obvious issue.

  21. MarkyMark says:

    All day, every day, the BBC’s news teams are using ever more sophisticated tools, techniques and technology to check and verify videos like the Kremlin drone footage, as well as images and information. They do this to ensure our journalism meets the rigorous editorial standards the BBC is proud to uphold.

    But, until now, that work has largely gone on in the background, unseen by audiences.


    And this is how our new brand, BBC Verify, has come into being.


    Morning Live
    BBC One, 12 May 2023

    In an item about scams involving TV Licence payments we said ‘if you’re over 75 you don’t need a TV Licence’. We also said ‘if you are over 75 you need a licence but you don’t pay for it’.

    As we later clarified on the show, this is not correct. People who are over 75 and not in receipt of Pension Credit have to pay for a TV Licence. Over 75s in receipt of Pension Credit or those living with people who receive Pension Credit are entitled to a free TV Licence paid for by the BBC.

    We apologise for the mistake.




    • AWOL says:

      Did they also point out that you don’t need a licence if you don’t watch live TV if your over 75 or not?
      Of course there is the problem that if you aren’t watching, you won’t have that information. I’m sure Veritfy is on the case.


  22. MarkyMark says:

    On the issue of potential Tower Hamletses …… Outside a polling station, in one of my elections, there were people placed to tell every single Bangladeshi voter two subjects: one, that Councillor Golds is a Jew, and the second, that Councillor Golds is gay. To prove the second point, they had an extract from the election address to ensure that it was understood that the person I have lived with for the past 23 years is male. That was done in London in 2010. Please, as Mr Shelbrooke has said, do not say it is not happening elsewhere. The Bill is essential to clean our elections.

    Queen Victoria then took an interest in him and arranged for his education – and ultimately his burial when he died aged just 18.

    But his family wants his remains to be sent back to Ethiopia.

    “We want his remains back as a family and as Ethiopians because that is not the country he was born in,” one of the royal descendants Fasil Minas told the BBC.

    “It was not right” for him to be buried in the UK, he added.



    Lorraine American Cemetery is located just outside the town of St. Avold, France, near the border with Germany.
    It is the largest American World War II military cemetery in Europe.

      Was it worth it ? I really am not so sure anymore …


      • kingkp says:

        No war is worth it for the common people because all wars are banker wars. A great book to read on this is ‘The Wall Street Trilogy’ by Antony Sutton. How many people realise that Wall Street and J.P. Morgan financed the Bolsheviks? In fact, without their financial support, they probably would have failed. The aim of course was to make sure Russia and Germany never became allies. That would have been the end for the bankster’s plans of world domination which are sadly now coming to fruition. It’s been a long time in the planning. Both World War One and Two and the current war in Ukraine were primarily promoted by the bankers who are supporting both sides. All of the major American companies, sponsored by the Wall Street, were providing the Nazis with supplies for the war right up to the very end of the fighting. Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, who founded the Bildergerg group was a Nazi SS officer. This is the same group that met the other day in Portugal to decide future policy on everything from AI to climate change to CDBCs. We were never fighting for freedom. We were simply being played, both Brits and Germans. The Russian Central Bank is developing a CBDC in collaboration with the BIS. And we are supposed to be at war? All smoke and mirrors.

        Churchill did say after the war in early Cold War days, ‘We killed the wrong pig’

        Also, what kingkp wrote above. As well as all the WhiteManBad nonsense and promotion blatantly immoral ideas as norm. All part of a plan that stemmed back to the early 20th Century.

      Dear Marianna Spring (BBC wages paid under threat of prosecution),

      As I’ve had to look at your BBC news and use other sources to determine that your news is not news but selective editorial opinion I’d like to request that I have a refund for the last 4 years plus get the BBC free from now on.

      Please let me know how I can go about this as I am willing to create a full list of articles that I’ve had to investigate plus time taken for me to check your fact checker whilst realising that the BBC intentionally removes news rather than incorrectly report on it, uses images to sway opinion or misleads with the main titles hoping no one reads the full article.

      ‘Omission is the greatest form of lie.’

      CAS-4987700-SY1FTF : BBC NewsWatch says boredom with pro-Brexit march.

      I think VERIFY ( herein after used with caps on ) will greatly aid our quest to destroy the BBC . It will not deal with omissions – but ‘easy wins ‘ but will fail on those times when then the bbc is proved to be lying – so we don’t have to wait too long …


  28. Richard Pinder says:


    BBC Verify is launched as an initiative to improve trust in the BBC by countering disinformation, misinformation and malinformation found in the Pfizer documents, VAERS and thousands of scientific papers found on Google Scholar, which cause damage to the Government, Big Pharma and our friends in Cheltenham with Five Eyes.

    Ten verified examples of BBC disinformation are (1) Trump works for Russia (2) mRNA jabs are safe and effective (3) Andrew Bridgen is an anti-Semite (4) The Pfizer documents don’t show anything worth looking at (5) Climate Change is man made (6) Greta is better informed than Richard Lindzen, just ask Michael Gove (7) Members of OFCOM conspiring against GB News with made up rules is not an illegal Conspiracy Theory (8) Elon Musk and Twitter are dangerous, and criticism of the BBC is Hate Speech. (9) Bobby Kennedy Jnr is wrong. Russia not the BBC’s Trusted News Initiative manipulated the US Election (10) Free Speech is dangerous, causes damage and is harmful.

    The BBC’s job is to use propaganda, censorship, fake news, fear and repression to manipulate and guide people, organisations, and the country towards the goal of making everyone love and trust the BBC and the international Elite.


    “TRUST the BBC”, or the BBC will spend more and more of your licence fee money on more and more staff dedicated to more and more propaganda initiatives to force you to “TRUST the BBC”.

    I wonder who the real enrichers are in the UK ?

    Imagine if all the Chinese, for example, over here decided they are sick of the blackwashing of TV and demanded they are represented on UK media with white wives in every advert ?

    And they decided to boycott all the universities, colleges and private schools where they pay a fortune for in extortionate overseas student fees.

    I strongly suspect many UK universities would go bankrupt without their money.

    And maybe a rent strike from all the chinese takeaways in every town and village in the UK and Chinatown in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

    Of course our favoured blacks could do the same and no one would notice, apart from the county line drug customers maybe.


  30. Zephir says:

    Of course we could also draw the only obvious conclusion glaring at us, that only ONE minority needs all this help from racist “diversihee” policies coz maybe dey are a bit fick innit and need all the help they can get ?

    Or, if they don’t get what they want they will start rioting and lootingagain like they did in the US and parts of the UK.

    No other reason makes any sense, they are not the only or even the largest minority in this country yet are featured in over 70% of ads and TV now for some bizarre and racist reason.

    Where are the Japanese or Chinese Ann Boleyn, regency or 1950 drama characters ?

    “TikToker who entered stranger’s home defends videos amid calls for his arrest

    Exclusive: ‘I’m a Black male doing these things and that’s why there’s such an uproar on the internet’

    A TikTok user who went viral when he entered a stranger’s house uninvited has defended his videos after they were described as “abhorrent” and “criminal” by politicians.

    In one home entry video, the 18-year-old appears with two friends, saying: “Walking into random houses, let’s go.” He is then seen going through a front door that has been left open and startling the woman on its patio. Once inside the home he lounges on a sofa before finally being asked to leave by a man who appears in the living room, as children are heard calling “daddy

    Mizzy confirmed he has previously been arrested after sharing a number of videos that seemed to show him harassing Jewish people.

    In one, he appears to put his hands on the victim’s shoulders and attempts to leapfrog over him.

    He was more defensive when it came to other videos he has posted to his account, including one that shows him picking up an elderly woman’s dog as she sits on a park bench before he runs off with it,”

    ‘More than 35,000 incidents of sexual misconduct or sexual violence – ranging from derogatory remarks to rape – were recorded on NHS premises in England between 2017 and 2022.’

    So a derogatory remark is ‘sexual misconduct or sexual violence’ now ???.

    Then we get:
    ‘Rape, sexual assault or being touched without consent accounted for more than one in five cases.’

    A list of offences most certainly listed in reverse order. ‘touching without consent’ can mean anything from a hand on an arm and tells us this is a 100% feminist/misandrist agenda item when it is lumped in with ‘rape’ and ‘sexual assault’ to get the numbers up.

    No surprise at all to discover this is a survey conducted by The Guardian and shared with The BBC. I’ve read some shockingly misandrist articles on The Guardian.

    Another outrageously misleading article and another example about how the The BBC (and the other arse-cheek, The Guardian) are gradually breaking down our society by deliberately creating divisions for their own activist agenda.

    TOADY Watch #1 – maybe there is something you haven’t considered, Andy?

    Andy Haldane is in favour of more, not less, immigration into the UK. He is the former Chief Economist(!) at the Bank of England. No wonder the country – led by the MPC of the Bank of England – is in such a mess. Andy did you think about this? (I have a R.E.M. lyrics playing in my head – Andy are you goofing on Elvis?) I think Andy Haldane is a wannabe comedian. He is obviously not a serious, knowledgeable, economist.

    We have 1.3 million, at the very least, unemployed adults in the UK. They have to be supported by the UK taxpayer. Last week we heard that we have 2.5 million adults in the UK who are on long term sick leave. They have to be supported by the UK taxpayer. I’m not sure if this figure is in addition to the other two I have quoted or whether it is inclusive of them, but there are said to be 5.5 million adults of working age who are ‘economically inactive’.

    That means they are not in work. Either because they are wealthy enough to not work: they will therefore be paying tax on their income. Or, maybe they have been able to retire early because of a large pension pot. If they work in the private sector that is their choice and good for them building that pension pot. But if they previously worked in a public sector job, they also have to be supported by the UK taxpayer in being ‘economically inactive’. Andy Haldane wants to bring more people into the UK, who may, initially, have to be supported by the taxpayer.

    Andy Haldane wants taxes to be reduced to help UK businesses grow.

    Andy Haldane is a comedian.

    Ha ha ha ha ha!

    Newspaper headlines: ‘Maddie lake search’ and ‘London behind rivals’ (BBC)

    Ah, it was Kurt Cobain of grunge rock legends Nirvana who sung Smells like teen spirit but this BBC take smells like a familiar Remainer-friendly snipe at Brexit. And you can bet your botton Euro it won’t be the fault of Mayor Khan.

    The BBC could have chosen the Mail’s: REVEALED: Plot to drive out equality chief who’s standing up for women – but that’s a culture war battle which the left reckon isn’t really happening

    The BBC might have plumped for: Green quango blamed for blocking new homes (Times) – but that’s a whole ‘nother kettle of fish involving eco rules and just possibly hyper-immigration

    The Guardian can be relied upon to provide regular BBC-friendly stories: Thousands of hospital staff report claims of sexual abuse by patients – considering these days NHS patients tend to be so lecherous and infectious staff will no doubt welcome the day we can all be dealt with remotely.

    The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper also presented the BBC with the option: No 10 leaves Braverman waiting on her future

    But I’m sure our BBC can take another bite at that one tomorrow or the next day.

    London ‘left behind’ by financial rival cities – is a cri de cœur from the Telegraph and the sub-header reads: Stifling rules and costly political meddling holding Britain back, says leading investor

    Famously, Al Jolson’s star of the 1927 pionering talky movie The Jazz Singer quipped: ‘you ain’t heard nuttin’ yet’

    And in terms of stifling rules and costly political meddling, you most certainly ain’t, and here comes the other lot: Labour ready to force pension funds to invest… Shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves has said “nothing is off the table” in trying to get schemes to invest in the party’s planned £50bn “future growth fund” (FT)

      Leads the Moaning Emole of the £5,000,000,000 national broadcaster too.

      Seems a lot for a Bimbo to copy a press release in her cubicle .

      I thought the Rachel reeve seat 3A story wouldn’t get much attention . Blue labour politicians – as a ‘right ‘ presumably travel first or at least business – avoiding smelly unruly voters at the back of the plane .

      So I am sure the whips said let the reds / bbc get on with the suella thing … which now reaches day 3 I think – with a decision by rishi to go for the inquiry within the 24 hours up to PMQs – with suella sitting next to him ….

      They must be desperate for red labour dirt

      Meanwhile – real world – the government borrowed more than expected last month ….

    Currently savouring the output of Surkeer’s female front bench, who spend more time on Twitter than civil servants do in HR complaining.

    Reeves, Nandy… and…

    The hate dripping ideological irony of BBC Newsnight’s thug.


  42. G says:

    Yet more solid evidence on the benefits of Vit D. You know, the Vitamin with Zinc that was highly recommended by Boris, Valance, Whitty, his ‘Dream Team’ in their daily presentation on Covid………..NOT.

    Why? Anyone would think the ‘Dream Team’ and Government were hoping to kill off as many people as possible. If Vit D came out in a package bearing the name, ‘Pfizer’ or ‘Moderna’ it would be highly recommended.

    BBC VeryLie

    So obvious I spot 6 people on Twitter used that term already

    BTW this pushback tweet against Mariana got 10,000 Likes


    • MarkyMark says:

      The BBC has appointed themselves as the arbiter of truth. They will verify what is true and let the rest of us know. 🤣

      Do you like BBC?

      ………………………. reply to .,………

      “BBC News has unveiled BBC Verify to address the growing threat of disinformation and build trust with audiences through transparency.

      The BBC’s Disinformation Correspondent Marianna Spring had more details on #BBCBreakfast “

    The #GreenSupremacists who rule over us live in Clown World


  45. Fedup2 says:

    In April the government borrowed 25.6 billion pounds – the second highest since 1993 when they started counting . This was 3 billion more than expected . A Tory government eh?


  46. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Here’s an idea for GB News or maybe Talk TV.

    Why don’t you set up a ‘Fact check’ type of department to fact check bbbc Verify.
    The bbbc will put their spin on, manipulate and omit details when they present their version of whatever they decide wasn’t their truth.
    If GB News can fact check this Verify output it would either keep the bbbc honest (ha ha) or show them up for what they really are.

    Maybe the GBN channel can give Stew a job as he seems to be able to quickly find facts on various comments here.


  47. Fedup2 says:

    EG that is a very sensible idea – therefore unlikely to get any ‘traction ‘. …
