Weekend 27 May 2023

Will BBC VERIFY check the number given out this week that 606000 foreigners were added to our huge population in 2022. Was it really 750 000? Or maybe the BBC will look the other way ….?

    GBnews “Who they HELL are the BBC to verify anyone?”


    • StewGreen says:

      Good news folks, you’re paying to be censored
      if you thought woke Silicon Valley and Tech giants like Facebook YouTube and Twitter before Elon were bad
      look closer to home where the state-run broadcaster has launched a new platform George Orwell could only have dreamed of : BBC verify
      in which their crack team of journalists (I used the term loosely) will set them out unearthing dangerous misinformation
      What is dangerous misinformation ?
      Might that be perhaps “if you get the vaccine you won’t get covid”
      an outright lie propagated by the mentally challenged leader of the Free World Joe Biden
      or “the lockdowns will do more harm than good”
      “that an attempt to stop a respiratory virus will always end in Failure”
      … is that misinformation ?
      let me draw your attention to China this week who fear they may suffer 65 million weekly cases of the virus by June
      So much for zero covid
      Speaking of China was it dangerous misinformation to speculate that covid probably came from a lab given that Wuhan is home to a coronavirus Research Center ?
      If you’d said that early in the pandemic if you had said that covid came from a lab you would have been called a conspiracy theorist loon
      Was it disinformation to encourage people to be healthy during the pandemic given the fact the virus clearly discriminated against age metabolic health and body mass index ?
      People who recommended vitamin D for example a natural substance directly linked to a healthy immune system were called right wing and Granny killers
      Now dangerous misinformation does exist it always has and no doubt it has been supercharged by social media
      but so has failed government messaging like stay home to save lives or wear a mask to save the NHS
      all propounded by the BBC
      Plenty of top medics pushed back on this, but went unreported on the Beeb
      Decades of pre-pandemic mask research, three years of a real world experiment a pandemic and the gold standard Cochrane review into those filthy muzzles suggests they achieved little if anything
      Was a policy of recommending masks in order to stop a tiny virus the real misinformation ?
      You tell me
      It’s my view that you might as well have worn a pair of yellow underpants on your head and you’d have had the same effect
      Now I’ve got no problem with any news organized news organization or journalistic outfit calling out lies and so-called misinformation that’s what every journalist has to do it was ever thus
      but the BBC doesn’t need some dystopian department paid for by the Great British public to have their freedom of speech and freedom of thought policed so maniacally
      Particularly when they say they’ll be tackling right-wing conspiracy theories
      interesting not left-wing conspiracy theories

      an example of which might be saying a biological man can change his sex and become a woman.
      Now that’s what I’d call dangerous misinformation
      Was covid modeling misinformation ? given it overstated the risk from the virus Imperial College and Professor pants down Neil Ferguson predicted half a million deaths
      It was Armageddon which spooked our government into a disastrous set of policies which have left us with a broken country poorer angrier
      sicker more divided and with a generation of damaged kids and notwithstanding the human economic and societal damage from lockdowns.
      Excess deaths have been raging at over two thousand a week pointing to a total failure of a policy designed to save lives
      Who the hell are the BBC to verify anyone with their perceived bias in reporting of Brexit which alienated millions of license fee payers
      And with their one note coverage of the pandemic in which we had to lock down in which we had to wear a mask
      I don’t remember a single question from a BBC journalist pushing back on lockdowns or mask or vaccine mandates
      It’s all I did for three years thank God
      The Beeb should have spent less time in hospital Wards creating hysteria and more time acknowledging shattered businesses closed schools and children’s playgrounds taped shut with masking tape
      What the hell were we thinking and where were BBC verify then to call out this madness
      So the BBC is going to verify US
      but who’s going to verify them ?
      There are some dangerous nutters out there spouting nonsense on the internet,
      but there’s no one individual or organization who I would trust to give me their version of the truth
      least of all the BBC given the ideological groupthink of that organization and who decides what is and isn’t disinformation
      As the last few years have shown in many cases misinformation plus about six months equals the truth


      • Scroblene says:

        “As the last few years have shown in many cases misinformation plus about six months equals the truth”.



      • G says:

        How much will that set the licence payer back?

        Same with all and every attempt to change the culture and/or the World, as they see it. With the public’s money no less. As I’ve always said, stop the money flow and it will ALL collapse: WHO, WEF, EU, our current Labour Government, Local Authorities. If Bill Gates and all the rest of the multi Billionaire conspirators are asked to step in as the alternative sources, they will disappear up their own what-nots double quick.

        Like bringing back conscription. The Pakistan national airline, et al. would be flooded with people wishing to clear off and use their dual passports to achieve that.


      • moggie63 says:

        My take is that right wing conspiracy theory is just that, a theory. But left wing conspiracy is daily life, no theory at all, all practical.


        • Up2snuff says:

          Great to see our Stew in first place on this Thread and thanks for the Verify excuses explanation from the BBC.

          Stew, I do think that you need to put a capital V at the start of Verify and then maybe put apostrophes around it to signify the suspicion and respect with which it is held on this site. 😉

    Near enough the whole programme on the BBC


  3. StewGreen says:

    The BBC’s Ministry of Truth | The spiked podcast
    – The BBC’s obsession with disinformation
    They take views they disagree with and smear-label them MISINFORMATION
    in an attempt to get them banned
    It’s a campaign for online censorship
    It chooses to not challenge other views (ie lefty)

    – The relentless hysteria over Partygate
    – And immigration after Brexit.
    – Plus, Chris Elston (aka Billboard Chris) explains his campaign against puberty blockers.


  4. Zephir says:

    “Nothing less than a coup is taking place in Britain… The ultra-woke civil service and renegade Tories still loyal to the EU are working to destroy an elected government”



  5. Zephir says:

    Remember what I said about HS2 recruitment and their obsession with wimmin and black people ?

    “Black HS2 manager sues for discrimination saying her boss was being racist when she used the phrase ‘whiter than white'”



    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      Anyone else have the impression some people are just looking for something… anything, to be offended about these days?


  6. Zephir says:

    More racism in action:

    “Militant junior doctor booted out of BMA following outrage over his ‘white supremacist patriarchy’ rants is quietly let back into union

    Dr Kayode Oki was removed from the BMA’s ruling council last month
    But he was allowed back into the fold just 11 days later after an investigation ”



    • popeye says:

      Evidence of massive fraud in the 2020 US elections in NY State (and I doubt it was the only place to do so), but Marianna says there is no evidence! Surely worth further investigation Marianna?


      • Rob in Cheshire says:


        No, I don’t think Marianna would want to look into a left wing conspiracy to steal the election, especially as it worked.


  7. Richard Pinder says:

    Conspiracy theories usually turn out to be correct. However the ‘Conspiracy’ turns out to be no more than ‘Groupthink’

    So to check my theory I Googled ‘What is an example of groupthink theory?’ and got “Two well-known examples of Groupthink in action are the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster and the Bay of Pigs invasion. Engineers of the space shuttle knew about some faulty parts months before takeoff, but they did not want negative press so they pushed ahead with the launch anyway”

    This confirmed my example of ‘groupthink theory’ to mean: “An example of Groupthink in action is in the deployment of the mRNA jabs. Pfizer knew about the massive amount of adverse events before launch, but they did not want negative press so they pushed ahead with the launch anyway”


  8. Richard Pinder says:

    The BBC wants to be the sole source of truth and it’s getting roasted for it: https://expose-news.com/2023/05/26/bbc-wants-to-be-the-sole-source-of-truth

    Marianna Spring does not seem to have ever read even one edition of ‘The Light’ newspaper. Page one of this months edition of ‘The Light’ has the Perseus Group report on the failings of the MHRA. Page two of this months edition of ‘The Light’ has a report on members of SAGE. Page three of this months edition of ‘The Light’ has a report on Pfizer data released in Australia under a freedom of information request, revealing that the mRNA jab was ‘dangerous and ineffective’ and doubled pregnancy loss.

    Almost identical too the intellectually challenged Greta Thunberg, Marianna Spring is only looking for conspiracy theories, anti-Semitism, far-right extremists and people promoting hate, but without reference to anything in ‘The Light’ newspaper.

    ‘The Light’ newspaper contains only a few things I don’t agree with, but no hatred of Donald Trump, Brexit or anything else except hatred of lies and corruption: https://rumble.com/v2phe1y-marianna-in-conspiracyland-full-unedited-interview-with-darren-nesbit-edito.html


    • G says:

      On a brighter note, we should rejoice seeing the BBC continually getting it more and more wrong during its writhing death throes.


  9. Zephir says:

    Morning Richard, thanks for the first link above, watching the bbc ill informed kidult desperately trying to smear the interviewee is astounding:

    Spring “is violence acceptable ?”

    “in self defence”

    Spring “but, but, but”

    Desperate to smear this person as condoning violence over and over again.

    If I was him I would have repeatedly referred her to bbc and its mostly peaceful label of BLM looting, rioting and assault across the USA.


  10. Zephir says:

    You can clearly see what is going on in Springs tiny, biased mind:

    “I am determined to label this man and his organisation as violent, despite being given a clear unequivocal answer”

    “but, but, but” three times after his answer.


  11. Guest Who says:

    Luckily the diversity was off the scale.

    Meanwhile, the gated community media still hang on every utterance from one of the architects.

    Ever get the feeling the establishment has screwed it all up?

    Unwise, not illegal edition

    The Daily Mirror frontpage has former BBC totty Jan Leeming, now aged 81, demand: Why shouldn’t older women wear swimsuits!

    Meanwhile further down the same frontpage former ITV housewive’s heart-throb Phil Schofield, 61, is quoted as remarking – almost as though in reply to our Jan’s question: “unwise, not illegal” – gosh, that could have been Prince Andrew saying that. Not that there’s double standards according to orientation in our media applied at all – perish the thought.

    The online iteration of the Mirror prefers to deploy an ‘ism‘ in their headline: Exclusive: BBC legend Jan Leeming, 81, fights ageism with stunning UNAIRBRUSHED swimwear shoot

    Watch out Daily Mail side bar of shame!

    Talk about holier than thou…

    The shocking thing about the Mail Online’s sidebar of shame… The Mail’s website appropriates the holier-than-thou prurience of the defunct News of the World, but to what financial end? (Guardian) – the Gruan fretting about sound finance? Surely that’s not their bag. Refighting old battles against the News of the World – that’s more like it.

    Talking of refighting done and dusted old battles: Austerity on trial: Osborne summoned to Covid inquiry over NHS cuts (‘i’) – as the UK excess deaths statistic remains inexplicably subbornly above the five-year average (Statistica) this covid inquiry is apparently turning into quite the lefty jamboree

    While the locals do the dying our part in the proxy war with Russia is to finance the fighting and to do the propaganda.

    With news of a battlefield set back at Bakhmut seeping out our BBC renews its efforts with their headline top story online: Oleksiy Danilov interview: Ukraine counter-offensive ‘ready to begin’ … could begin “tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or in a week”.

    Quite how that speculative insubstantial tosh qualifies as the top news story delivered to licence payers – beating both the big gay showbiz scandal and the BBC’s usual lefty agit-prop reports into subsidiary stories who can say: Post Office used racist terms for sub-postmasters in official guidance – it can only really be explained as timely regime-approved propaganda

    Our BBC, you can’t lick it – as the sub-postmistress said of the latest Royal Mail stamps.

    In case you were wondering, as I like to say…

    Warning: This story contains language which readers may find offensive... The guidance, which was reportedly published between 2008 and 2011… categories on the document include ‘Chinese/Japanese types’, ‘Dark Skinned European Types’ and ‘Negroid Types’ – an archaic and offensive term from the colonial era of the 1800s that refers to people of African descent. (BBC)

    Excuse me while I have a quick attack of the vapours.

    It’s not just the BBC: ‘Defeated Russia still a threat to Britain’ (Telegraph) – at least this report implies the vital question what exactly are our war aims here and mightn’t relentlessly pursuing a Ukraine victory be more dangerous to us than a negotiated score draw?

    I see the war-monger’s errand boy Boris has jetted off to the States to have a quiet chat with Donald Trump – after the former president talked a lot of sense about trying to end the war should he be re-elected.

    We’ve heard tough talk suddenly from Tories about controlling Britain’s hyper-immigration – meanwhile what’s happening on the ground, so to speak?: Fifty Channel migrants refused rescue by French authorities and instead, asked for UK assistance (Talk TV);

    Asylum support… What you’ll get: You can ask for somewhere to live, a cash allowance or both as an asylum seeker. Housing: You’ll be given somewhere to live if you need it. This could be in a flat, house, hostel or bed and breakfast. Cash support: You’ll usually get £45 for each person in your household. This will help you pay for things you need like food, clothing and toiletries. Your allowance will be loaded onto a debit card (ASPEN card) each week. You’ll be able to use the card to get cash from a cash machine. (Gov.UK)

    The policy reality is always rather different to the transitory tough talk: Extra £10k to woo more teachers from abroad… Global search to fill maths and science posts (Times) – we know our wishy-washy PM Rishi is a maths enthusiast keen for British youngsters to master their numbers – perhaps he missed his vocation as a maths teacher?

    Mr AsI’s maths teachers tended to be Welshmen who doubled as games masters: there was Mr Morgan, Mr Evans, Mr Wookey – I’m not convinced the latter was Welsh but looking back he must have rued the day the movie Star Wars became a massive international hit.

    So whatever happened to what used to be a fine education system in Wales – all rugger and quadratic equations?

    Welsh schools to get guidance on supporting transgender pupils (BBC); A-levels: Wales top grades dip after exams return (BBC)


    • Zephir says:

      In my experience, the Welsh teachers in general seemed singularly fond of violent outbursts, employing hockey sticks, old tennis shoes and any other old gym equipment available and then picking one up off the floor by the hair.

      The men were even worse.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Asiseeit – look what’s your problem ? Why arnt you covering The Biggest Story of The Week ?- the one affecting everyone ? Yes – Phillip Schofield – the jimmy saville of the ITV ? – not the 606 000 of course ( or 750000 plus in real life ).

      No – actually I appreciate your daily musings on the news ….but I look forward to the book by mr Schofield – who I don’t think either watched on the TV – although I would have thought he’d be well placed to be head of bbc children or bbc religion ..

    Zaian Aimable-Lina murder: Teenager who killed boy in park detained for life

    Yet another black boy murdered by someone almost certainly also black and yet again the murderer cannot be named for legal reasons – ie he is too young.

    And yet again the BBC think these two black males don’t even warrant reporting on the front page. As usual, I had to find it by going direct to regions.

    But they do see fit to have a complete non-article up there about someone who used to own the car which crashed into Downing street.

    The reason is the same as usual : the BBC – and the Left in general – don’t care one bit how many young black boys get murdered if another black boy did it. They only care when they can use it to call whitey ‘racist’.

    Their ethics absolutely disgust me. They are complete hypocrites.


  14. JohnC says:

    British Cycling to ban transgender women from competing in female category

    And here the ‘Trans women are really women’ argument is totally trashed.

    But I notice everyone is very quiet about it. Where are all the activists venting outrage and hate at those who have made this decision ?.

    They are quiet because they know it exposes just what a farce it all is in a real world example they can’t argue against. They will conveniently ignore it.

    And who do the BBC get in as their ‘expert’ to comment ?

    ‘However Joanna Harper – a sports scientist who studies the effects of transition on transgender athletes, and who is transgender herself – said she was “disappointed but not surprised”.’

    Right. Another impartial, objective expert selected by the BBC.

    The real story ?

  16. Dickie says:

    Ukrainian and media lies. So what’s new:



    • Fedup2 says:

      Just back to the themes in a week the bbc run – in this last week – the Big BBC story was…. Suella and the driving course – that ran for about 5 days . The 606 000 uncontrolled population ‘expansion ‘(legalised invasion ) had gone in a blink . There’s no mention now .

      But the current big stories ? Schofield . 2 kids crashing and dying on an electric scooter . ….5 days ago ….

      Stories which never got ‘traction ‘ – borrowing by HMG in April 2nd highest since 1993 – 22 billion – interest rates going up because of inflation – Sudan woman starves – BBC VERIFY – Rachel reeve and seat 3K –


    • JohnC says:

      This is what scares me most about this war.

      Ukraine can lie as much as they like and it’s reported verbatim by the BBC without question. All we get is ‘The BBC cannot independently verify the claims’ right at the end of the article.

      If you write any comment in a HYS pointing out the lies, it is deleted within minutes.

      They have been getting more and more ridiculous as time goes on. Ukraine are apparently shooting down every missile aimed at Kyiv including ALL the hypersonic ones.

      What that is about is the Patriots have got a very bad reputation in Saudi Arabia which is not good for exports of something so expensive. So the USA have given them to Ukraine and told them to say they are shooting everything down. One more monumental lie with the BBC complicit.

      If you believe what the BBC say, the Russians have lost 100’s of thousands of men and Ukraine haven’t lost any. All Russias missiles either hit hospitals or apartment blocks. Ukraine are about to launch an offensive which will defeat Russia. Ukraine are winning.

      I am still stunned by the extent of it all and my faith in our society has been shattered.


  17. G says:

    Inflation rate? At the present, the only reliable measure is RPI. Remember RPI? The measure of inflation for decades. Not CPI, a concocted measure forever changeable to fit circumstances that benefit……..not you or I…….the lying Government.

    RPI is, 13.1% to April 23.


    The good news is that RPI is falling.


  18. Flotsam says:

    A trans woman is suing his health authority because they won’t admit her to their maternity ward.

    She says she is a woman, she has a cervix just as Starmer says


  19. Flotsam says:

    Further to my difficulties with TFL and congestion charging and ULEZ.

    As posted, I had travelled through London but the as unsure if I had passed into the charging zones with my non ULEZ compliant car. I went A12, A3 and round the South circular road plus some small roads near my destination. All roads in London seem to carry an array of signs and lots of speed limits, long stretches of 20mph limits.

    It appears from the TFL site that I am expected to know from signage if I did or not passed into a charging zone. I’m honestly not sure so I emailed TFL with my car reg and asked if I was subject to charging. I received the reply which said in part:

    “Please be advised we are unable to retrospectively check if you have been into the zone.”

    Which must mean there aren’t able to send a fine if I have! A hefty fine at that

    An obvious lie of course. At least with the expanded zone there won’t be any doubts.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Flotsam – think of me . I’ve been forced to sell my car because if I kept it I’d be hit for £12.50 every time I drove it to a supermarket – I hardly used it – but liked it – sold because of Khan

      . I am aware khan has had his first heart attack ….


      • Flotsam says:

        TFL, Kahn and its charging systems are nothing more than a scam. Think of the very similar private parking and it’s enforcement but TFL are Government as well so they have even more powers. The justifications put forward for LEZ and ULEZ are.manufactured nonsense, global warming? Athsma? In one rigged judgement. We’re all being led by the nose. The Government and big business have certainly found the Midas touch.


  20. StewGreen says:

    GBnews are over the Climate Policy target, so the GreenBlob sent super-smearers in to attack. A PR operation called DeSmog Blog.

    The article is riddled with errors and GBnews have a good statement out

    but see here how someone asks the DeSmog guy why he left the “Iam not saying” bit out of a quote.
    And he fails to reply


    • StewGreen says:

      Caroline Lucas is in on the story.


      • moggie63 says:

        It’s undeniable, we have a climate. At least, some of us do. In the UK we just have weather.


    • StewGreen says:

      The Guardian article ends
      “A GB News spokesperson* said DeSmog’s research contained “numerous inaccuracies, inconsistencies,
      and a good dose of misinformation”,
      and argued its methodology was flawed.
      “You have failed to include nuance and context, or the fact that GB News embraces a wide range of voices on all major issues such as climate change and policy,”

      the spokesperson said.
      “In short, you looked for only one view, but in doing so you have excluded all the other hosts, guests, politicians and commentators on GB News who have robustly and resoundingly argued different views on climate policy and science.
      GB News is proud to ask difficult questions and to embrace all voices on controversial issues. We believe it’s what good journalism is all about.”

  21. StewGreen says:

    I’m looking at the DeSmog guy’s Twitter timeline
    He endorses a Guardian story
    “UK fruit exports to EU have dropped by more than half since Brexit”

    buried deep in the article there is a line
    “Analysis of HMRC data showed that the overall value of exports to the EU of food had increased”

    So they cherry picked fruit as falling
    when in fact the whole food category has grown
    then they say ah it only grew cos prices rose.

    In any case £200m worth of produce in fruit sector is tiny compared to most other sectors where exports are billions and tens of billions.

  28. vlad says:

    Oh so predictably, the BBC gave the feral little creep Mizzy the kid glove treatment.

    If you read their reports on the vicious thug (if you could even find them buried under Regions) you could be forgiven for thinking he was just a merry little prankster, a lovable scamp, the victim of a hard upbringing (and probably racism).

    In fact he has spent years terrorising people. He didn’t just ‘stroll into people’s homes’: they were menacing invasions of their privacy.

    He didn’t just ‘inconvenience’ travellers on the tube: he abused young women by stroking their hair in a creepy way (think Biden) and threatened to kill them, repeating “do you want to die?” with hands in pockets where he could have been hiding a knife or a gun.

    On other occasions, he ran off with an elderly lady’s dog, or jumped into someone’s car. Imagine the distress that would cause.

    Those are not ‘pranks’; they’re crimes.

    And those are just the ones we know about.

    And for all the distress he caused, he naturally got an obscenely lenient ‘sentence’ from our broken justice system: a fine of £365, or £1 a day for a year, if he even bothers to pay it.

    The final word should go to his lawyer: “He is an intelligent young man and a young man with some potential”.

    Indeed, the potential for more and greater crimes, now that he knows what a joke the legal system is.

    Take a look….



  30. StewGreen says:

    Some lobbying org is emotionally blackmailing people on Twitter with this line
    “Errol Graham death: Nottingham man starved after benefits stopped”

    Firstly they are rebooting an old 2018 story, by using the excuse that MPs are talking about it now.
    Secondly although the coroner put starvation on the certificate cos his body was only 30Kg
    it seems it was SUICIDE by a a mentally derranged man.
    He starved himself to death by locking himself into the flat and refusing to answer the door.
    The last visitor said he had old tins of food in his house that he had not eaten.

    Yes the social services failed, by not bringing in police to break in when he was alive.
    Such mentally derranged people still kill themselves or die even if you don’t cut their benefits off for non compliance.

      I first heard about it in the miners strike (Orgreave) and later during the 2000 fuel protests.

      Doubtless more but those really stood out for me.

      Next? I’ve got a good idea.

      For men, the length and dia of their private parts.
      For women, internal dimensions and volume.

      Oh, hang on though, that would discriminate against a person describing themselves as transgender and expose them to the rude facts of biology.

      Shame on me……….

    I know there have been a lot of comments re BBC Verify, so apologies if this article has been commented on before:

      I wonder if the springer character has ever read George Orwell ?
      Maybe her personal career drive overwhelms any thought she might have about what her outfit is really doing …. Or the threat which ‘VERIFY ‘ poses .?

      As I’ve said before – here – VERIFY is excellent for us because by its ‘ omission will be evidence against it ….

      Mate your typo
      It doesn’t say million It says £385.2k

      However it received £3,363,923 from government contracts and £385,000 from government grants. Yet the #RNLI says it has no govt support!


      • tomo says:

        Stew – good spot !

        A few quid the year before though.

        The RNLI have been bulging with cash for decades – so much so that they’ve been a bit stumped on what to spend it on aiui.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Maybe they could build a few RNLI hotels in Rwanda – or a mid channel ‘base ‘ to hold the invaders before a straight lift to Africa …. ?

            I’m still keen on the slashed rubber boat bounty.

            That said I reckon we’d better watch the back door – Ireland – they already exported a lot of their troublesome tinkers to us and if the Sangatte style encampments around Dublin that are showing up on Twitter – are a guide – there will be trouble.

      The big problem I have right now is that I no longer consider Ukraine, the USA or even my own country as ‘the good guys’.

  42. StewGreen says:

    Of course I never watch BBC national news
    They appear to have hundreds of redundant computers on tables
    does anyone ever use them ?

    I once went into the complex of a large Indian TV corp
    and the news was being broadcast from a tiny room with the background being done by green screen.
    It was weird cos 15 mins earlier I’d been watching it on a restaurant TV and then I was watching the same prog live through the studio window.
    No onsite producers, just a newsreader doing the local news.

    Got to admire the head of the green crap ‘activist ‘ group – he / she / it is planning ‘actions ‘ against public events aimed at alienating as many as possible supporters as possible in the quickest time – Chelsea flower show – rugby – FA cup next Saturday – …..


    • JohnC says:

      Any activist who throws any kind of unknown powder, liquid or any other substance over anyone else should be charged as a terrorist.

      Their victim cannot know what it is at the time they do it.

      The reason it isn’t is because only the Left do it – and anything they do is ‘approved’ by our current MSM and establishment.

      If the Right did it, you can be sure it would be a different story.

    NHS sometimes good, sometimes bad
    “A woman who needed an emergency operation after a surgeon’s error has been awarded an £80,000 payout.
    The woman’s bile duct was cut during a gallbladder removal operation at Scunthorpe General Hospital in July 2021, solicitors said.
    The blunder meant the woman continued to suffer from pain and nausea more than two-and-a-half years later.

    • tomo says:

      imho – one of the biggest problems with the NHS is the determination not to remove the bad and the culture of putrid cover-up that pervades much of the service.


  46. JohnC says:

    After watching ITV become more Left and woke than the benchmark BBC, you can imagine my delight to discover that they too are gross hypocrites who will also deliberately cover up disgraceful sexual behaviour of their nasty ‘stars’ when it suits them.

    All is normal in the world : the Left are still exactly what I thought they were. Liars and the worst kind of hypocrites.


    • Scroblene says:

      It takes a good journo like Dan Wootton to get to the real facts, and uncover the pathetic wokerati at ITV…


      Beebolids are way, way, behind, but that’s the snivel serpents for you…



    • Lefty Wright says:

      I wonder how many Labour voters realise that many of their despised b/millionaires have Socialist sympathies and are in the business of using their wealth and influence to destroy British cultural traditions and that to them voter preference means nothing?
      As an erstwhile Labour voter it took me years to figure it out.


      • JohnC says:

        What really put me onto the reality of the Leftist activists is when I read about a few of them who were very ‘famous’ activists when they were young – but when interviewed about it in older life, they were embarassed about what they did because they discovered what lies and propaganda they had been fed.

        Exactly what is going on here right now – with the BBC fully complicit.

        It all reminds me of an overconfident new starter graduate at a place I worked at. 5 years later he told us how he realised how he knew nothing back then and was embarassed about what things he had said.

        The problem for me was that he now thought he knew everything. He didn’t learn that he may not be as clever as he thought he was. A wise man realises he can only ever know a fraction of the turth.

        That sums up the idiots posting on BBC HYS articles for me.

    By the way compare Mizzy to Aex Belfield
    In my opinion Belfield sat at home and as he was trolled visciously by people making up stuff he tried to fight back.
    Mizzy is actually going into people’s houses/ stealing stuff
    yet Belfield was treated very harshly by the judge and is in JAIL for 5.5 years for “email harassment”
    Never actually physically meeting the people he emailed.

    Did Belfield say much about Schofield ?
