    On the Beeb’s webshite it would appear that some of the 39 migrants removed from the “Bibby Stockholm” in Portland Port have written an open letter to the government asking for “support and unity” – actually they haven’t, some do-gooders have on their behalf – and it’s full of platitudes that’ll make you vomit.

    “Striving for a freedom that is deteriorating in these exhausting conditions.”

    “The absence of tranquility, comfort and basic needs has become our daily concerns.”

    “With your support and unity… we believe that with our joint effort, we can overcome these unfavourable conditions and achieve the peaceful and secure life that we aspire to.”

    I’m off to throw up.


    • Scroblene says:

      I sincerely hope you’ll feel better after all that, Coopers, those lefties really are getting to be more of a pain in the rear than ever!

      However, before you start to feel totally relieved after your experience, I suggest you don’t read the Waitrose weekly freebie rag, which was mentioned recently by friends here as the foodie department of the Beeboids’ ‘cash for Smash’ articles, which are bound to make one more than nauseous at the best of times…

      There’s some nutter ‘doctor’ advocating all the c**p about insects being so ‘good for you’ as soon as you get away from the meaty front page which looks very normal to me, (despite the poncy description and stuff added to a half-decent bit of beef), so you can take it from me, that if they’re going to continue with their Guardian/Beebonic stuff any more, that’s my visits to them confined solely to the items which Tesco don’t ever stock!

      One cheer for Wokerose – ‘Grocers by appointment to Beeboids…’


    • Doublethinker says:

      You see we doubters have been proved wrong! These chaps are indeed highly educated. Their use of the English language is exceptionally good . How many of us could write so fluently in a foreign language? In my opinion they could well have doctors, engineers and software engineers in their midst , not to mention lawyers , novelists and the odd entrepreneur who could create a ten thousand jobs for us dumb Anglo Saxons.


    • gb123 says:

      I wish I could come up with a response based on a joke I read many moons ago in the Dandy. A kid writing to his dad for money. “O woe no dough, your Joe.”, “So sad too bad your Dad.”
      The sentiment is what the reply should be but I won’t live in hope.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      Odd then that immigrant channels on Tik Tok are showing videos of drunken British girls on a night out. I wonder what the message is there?

    Jenni Hermoso ‘didn’t consent’ to Luis Rubiales kiss as Spain players refuse to play

    ‘Jenni Hermoso says she did not consent to be kissed by Spanish football federation president Luis Rubiales – as 81 players confirm they will not play for Spain’s women’s team until he is removed from his post.’

    “Quite simply, I was not respected.”

    Here we go. Watch the video : there is nothing sleezy about it at all. He is as happy as he could ever be. He should have been told off and that he must not do it in future. But they want him ruined.

    Whenever women force themselves into what they perceive as a ‘male enviroment’, this sort of thing is never far behind because the root of all of it is misandry. And the BBC are right up there with them.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      Let’s turn this around a bit. Suppose the Spanish footballer had been a man masquerading as a woman, rather than a real woman. The media, led by the BBC, would be an endless stream of stories along the lines of “Breakthrough for transwomen in sport”, “Finally – total acceptance”, “Is it time for a gender free Premier League?”, along with sympathetic documentaries on teenage girls wanting masectomies so they can be better footballers and “Bend it like Beckam”. In the absence of this (for now), misandry and faux-feminism are the order of the day.

      He will not do that while his Puppet Masters control him/the Government.

      I’d go further in wanting him and his WEF mates to stand the Government down, all resign immediately and allow the public to rise and take control. Obviously, on a pledge to repatriate most of the dross that has recently arrived (whether with a visa or not). I’d expect that assertion being made from any aspiring ‘New’ party as well.

      The public, in control, can never, ever, do a job of running the country as recklessly and hopelessly as our current blob of so-called, ‘Politicians’.


    • Sluff says:

      I”m reminded of an assertion by David Davis a few weeks back that Sweden manages to accept no asylum seekers at all from Albania, yet we grant asylum to over 50% of them, thanks to the drooling lefties at the unfit-for-purpose so-called Home Office,


  4. Sluff says:

    It’s ‘heads you lose, tails I win’ at the class-divisive biased BBC.

    On the news last night, coverage of the imminent reduction in domestic energy bills. Cue a vox pop with families at a theme park – which by the way is not a cheap day out. These families, presumably therefore fairly well off yet eager to complain, were amazingly knowledgable about domestic energy strategy, almost as if they had been either carefully selected or told what to say. But I digress.

    When the bills went up a couple of years back, the BBC were very keen to tell us how it would particularly hit the poorest and therefore how they needed extra support.

    Well, now the prices are coming down, and……guess what? The BBC are very keen to tell us how this will ……particularly hit the poorest !!!!!!!
    The reasoning being that the poor cannot afford energy so do not use much – living in small housing etc etc. Therefore they will not benefit much from a reduction in energy prices, by inference unlike all those rich people. I don’t remember this argument being used by the BBC two years ago.

    A truly astonishing yet somehow predictable Orwellian piece of overall output from our Marxist state broadcaster.


    • moggie63 says:

      It’s true though. We pay £1 per day for the, no doubt white, privilege of having a gas and electricity meter even if we never use any. It’s the equivalent of paying £400 per year VED for a car even if you only do 50 miles whereas some rich arse driving 75000 miles in a £100k electric car pays nothing. Scrap the standing charges and increase the price per unit a little.


      • G says:

        One company that has abolished the Standing Charges: Utilia. You can only sign up to them if you are on the ‘Pay As You Go’ scheme though. Swings and Roundabouts probably but if you are thrifty
        you could benefit assuming, unlike me, you are on PAYG. Let’s see how Martin Lewis’ efforts to persuade OFGEM to load the SC’s on to a revised unit rate are successful.

  6. AsISeeIt says:

    Not as comprehensive as it should have been edition

    On a morning when our media either assume or hope their British audience share their Trump derangement syndrome

    Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a pejorative term, usually for criticism or negative reactions to former United States president Donald Trump that are perceived to be irrational, and presumed to have little regard towards Trump’s actual policy positions, or actions undertaken by his administration (pejorative… I guess… but thanks anyway, Wiki)

    What a mug… Donald Grump! Manbaby sulks in jail (Daily Star)

    Stare Crazy. Trump tries for menace in police pic yesterday – Never let it be said Mr AsI doesn’t award credit where credit is due – particularly for a headline printed in fine fluent old tabloidese – he did rather enjoy the Daily Mirror’s photo caption: Stare Crazy – however, the paper’s – rather lame – main attack line employed what the progressives call ‘fat shaming’: Big Fat Lies… Under 16 stone

    Now for a game of headline compare and contrast couplets as we sample some (hopefully) amusing cross-media juxtapositions

    Hunt targets mental illness at work (Financial Times)

    How healthy is your loaf? (Times)

    [Loaf of Bread… Head ie Cockney rhyming slang]

    Bid to address labour shortage… 2.6mn long-term sick… Annual cost rises by £16bn… sharp rise in people unable to work because of mental illness… Hunt and Mel Stride, work and pensions secretary, are alarmed by the rise in such cases since the Covid pandemic (FT) – quick sub-editing job required there: the rise in such cases sine the Covid pandemic Lockdown

    Mr AsI has said it before and he’ll say it again – Lockdown has demoralised the workforce.

    Just as he has already advised the education secretary this week who was found fretting about low grades and school absenteeism – and he’s sure he’ll need to say this again to government ministers bemoaning further consequences of their own misguided Lockdown policies: Hey, Hunt! Go tell it to the Covid Inquiry!

    That Times headline was of course plucked fresh from a Weekend food feature. Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner – but my old dad used to speak of screwing one’s loaf – meaning to think hard and to make the very best one’s position

    In search of the female orgasm (Guardian)

    Well, all that Women’s World Cup corporate media hype seems to have paid off with something of an earth-moving feminism-inspired girl power multiple orgasm: Mary Earps 1, Nike 0 How the England goalie won our hearts (Telegraph); Spain in turmoil over football chief’s ‘forced’ World Cup kiss (‘i’)

    Next time a politician doing a spot of glad handing whilst out on the campaign trail spots a baby in the crowd – think on…

    Naomi Klein on conspiracy theories (Guardian)

    Russian general in Salisbury poisoning plot under suspicion after Putin critic’s death… is being discussed as a suspect in the downing of Wagner boss ‘s jet (‘i’) – conspiracy theories are good when it’s the mainstream promulgating them.

    The Labour-leaning formerly patriotic Times leans in a little further against conservatism today at the risk of garnering for itself the (pejorative) epithet: Boris derangement syndrome (BDS): ‘Boris is a complete disgrace, a very bad person’ Rory Stewart – despite Brexit, eh Rory?

    As they say in football – Play the ball, not the man, Rory. (Can we still say that, despite the Women’s World Cup?)

    Vorsprung duff Technik

    Mr AsI – unabashed anglophile that he is – and in line with his doubts concerning the appointments of foreign England football managers – was never comfortable with this appointment: German to become first foreign director of British Museum since 1827… Art historian Hartwig Fischer to take charge at the London musuem – second-most visited in the world after the Louvre in Paris and most popular visitor attraction in Britain (Guardian, 2015 This article is more than 7 years old) – and the day a Brit was ever appointed boss of the Louvre in Paris, then Mr AsI might have dared to believe the EU wasn’t simply a one-way anti-English street.

    I told you so is best served not simply cold but as a dusty ossified old museum piece: British Museum director quits over thefts… Hartwig Fischer announced… “did not respond as comprehensively” as it should have (Times); Fischer quits as British Museum chief over failings in loss of 1,500 treasures (FT)

    So we wrap up the papers for another day when the Times met Starmer… When Harry Met Sally ?

    And we quietly depart as that pic of Meg Ryan in that scene in that movie – emblematic as it is of our left-liberal media estate – left gasping with pleasure on the cover of the Gruan juxtaposed with the headline: The mugshot that defines modern US politics – and meanwhile on the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper there’s a second coming for New New Labour: Labour heads for landslide as Starmer locks in election lead

    Things could only get better?

    Ulez all you need to know (Guardian)

    Yesterday the site suffered a small technical glitch which Rufus quickly put right, so all credit and thanks to him and other helpers. I have a small problem with the bbc which he may be able to help with. For the last 24 hours, whenever I try to access the bbc, I am forwarded to the website for “Hello!” magazine. I think that it what it is, as the top story is about a football manager kissing a player on the lips! Well hold the front page, man on the moon. It’s hardly Rotherham, is it?
    The irony was that if gareth southgate did the same to one of his boys it would have received attention for all the wrong reasons, with the usual bbc paedos, puffs and perverts saying how nice it was.

      Mick – yes I was away from the site living rather than being that disparaging ‘keyboard warrior ‘ thingy so thanks rufus for something I never saw.
      Anyway – ASI cites the picture of the president in mugshot form being the summation of US politics – I would argue that any image of the increasing skull like mush of the election thief is more realistic image – complete with the aging Obama and the puppet strings ……

      … has thar wagner bloke turned up in norther cypress yet – complete with EU passport ?or Are we all expected to believe the official ‘story ‘?

      Lastly from me – with a bit of luck – if the kissing strike continues we won’t have to suffer crap wimmins ‘ football and the nonsense that goes with it – eg parity with the real game…

        The US is finished. It can never recover from the relentless Marxism developed over the decades and applied equally relentlessly and surreptitiously by China. It is currently reeling on the ropes and needs one final blow. That’s probably coming in the form of the Dollar being removed from the status of the, ‘Worlds Reserve Currency’. Watch the BRICS space.

        The only hope for the US, in my humble opinion, is another revolution. That may happen if Trump is convicted and goes to jail.
        I’d be very surprised if those plans were not being made behind the scenes right now.


  8. Thoughtful says:

    Yesterday (Friday) I was told of a psychological study / experiment which was carried out and might be of interest to readers.

    The experiment was devised and advertised as an exercise to provide proof of discrimination against those with facial disfigurements.

    The psychologists selected a group of women to go to a job interview, and told them they would apply prosthetic scars to their faces in order to make the subjects appear real to the interviewers.
    After applying the scars the women were all shown the results of the cosmetics in the mirror so they could understand and were given a backstory as to how they came by these injuries.
    Just before they were to go into the interview the make up artists told the subjects they needed to touch up the scars, but unknown to the subjects they completely removed them!

    Post interview every single one of the women gave the story of how the interviewer had made discriminatory comments about their facial disfigurements and how they considered they had been unfairly treated.

    The experiment proved that even in the absence of any real discrimination, those who were told it was there and that they would experience it found it even though it wasn’t present, and would interpret innocent remarks into something they were not.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Yes that sounds about right . When I’ve been line manager – even before woke became a fatal infection – I used to find myself applying a 3 second delay – like on live TV – before speaking to coloured folk and – sometimes – wimmin – because they might be classified as walking employment tribunals .

      Humanity – banter – fun – was excised from the workplace . I thought – what an achievement for HR and social practice to get to that stage …..
      As for chippy job applicants – the grounds required to ‘nail ‘ a minority applicant – legitimaty refused a job had to be so carefully drafted as to be ‘law ‘ proof ….

      .. I thought it was one of the benefits of my law degree – I never wasted time at HR or tribunals …
      But it gave me the hate I now feel for woke crap and equality crap – when it is just a weapon to be used ….

    So there is some liberal bedwetting judge in the UN, Judge Patrick Robinson who is demanding reparations be paid for slavery.

    What a damn good idea the UK would be owed a fortune:

    All the Scandinavian countries would have to pay up for the rape and pillage by the bloody vikings.

    The Italians would have to fork out for the invading romans and forcing us to build straight roads and walls and amphithreatres etc.

    Then the arab countries would pay for the barsteward Barbary pirates and invading and taking us into slavery

    Don’t get me started on the ruddy normans invading and enslaving us. That would be a joint French – Scandinavian operation.

    The Germans would have to fork out a fortune for the Channel Island invasion and taking over my grandads tomato growing business and stealing my dads bike (we got it back).

    And what about all our youngsters slaving away in US MacDonalds and all.

    And we are all having to pay through the nose for Chinese owned UK electricity networks.

    Then there is the UN who are operating an extortion racket. So there is not much to choose between Robinson and Albanian gangs running cocaine rackets.

    TOADY Watch #1 – oooh! Patriarchy is so bad, so awful ….

    Today’s Matt cartoon (Dreary Torygraph) perfectly illustrates the war in Spain that is falling on the plain where wimmin refuse to play football for their country. The 7 a.m. BBC R4 News got the whole revolution in a nutshell: Patriarchy is bad. This row is all about a dismantling and destruction of present world society. The Marxists foolishly think they can build a better world out of the ensuing ruins. But unless they can somehow heal the rift between the men and women that they are creating and promoting they will have no chance to ‘Build back better.’


    • Fedup2 says:

      The rather painful disclosures about the head of the CCRC (criminal cases review commission ) in the press points toward the gentle revelation that whether the head of an organisation is male or female – and they are crap – it makes no difference

      In this case the lady has so many snouts in taxpayers ‘ troughs that she amounts to nothing . In her case she was was ‘on point’ for the case of the innocent non rapist who did 17 years after being fitted up by the Manchester ? Plod and the rape victim .
      She failed to get the case properly reviewed . I don’t think she has the big gone ( peerage ) in a chakrabati corrupt sort of way but no doubt that will be part of the golden handshake ….

    August Bank Holiday, temperatures below normal say the Met Office.

    Sure, low temperatures in August doesn’t disprove global warming, it’s just weather. The issue is that if temperatures were higher than normal, much would be made of it by the MNGW fanatics although, again, it would only be weather.

  19. Deborah says:

    Thursday evening 6.30pm Look North and the BBC had to have another item about the children’s book about the Pride grandfather as it was a Hull family that withdrew their child. It started with a clip from someone that I hadn’t a clue who it was claiming that there was only one picture with a very small image of the grandfather in bondage gear. It wasn’t the image I thought I had seen elsewhere so I am thinking there could be at least two images in the book. The BBC Look North team then thought it was appropriate to leave the image of bondage grandpa as the background for Peter Levy for some time before interviewing the Labour MP for West Hull, Emma Hardy. She was first interviewed on the screen where she was very equivocal about whether the image was appropriate. Emma was then brought into the studio for more interviewing and it was obvious that she had taken advice from somewhere because suddenly she was definite that the image was NOT appropriate. She was quite clear on this.

    This whole discussion was on in the 6.30 – 7pm slot and many families could have had the tv on BBC1 as local news has a high reach in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. I am sure many children would have pricked up their ears at hearing an image was inappropriate and would have been asking their parents, ‘why’. The image was on the screen for some time. I always remember someone writing on this site that nothing happens at the BBC by chance. I think this was a fine example.

    Isn’t life fun? What with needing to “Rate our Performance” on line for every item purchased. “Rate our Delivery Driver”. Was he helpful, or did you find it necessary to hit him?

    I think the psychology is getting to me. I am conscious that a seller needs to repeat the benefits of a particular product, or company name three or more times for long-lasting impact on the buyer. So I see the constant “Rate our Performance and/or product” as a part of that. But lo, it seems you have to be issued a new password every time you want to access any company/organisation now: “Either your email address or password is incorrect” / “Forgot your password” – NO, its you changing your system to deliberately shut me out. Musical Chairs. And then, take time out in changing information so you will be exposed in some small way to that company name/logo repeatedly in the process. All part of the game now?
    I think so.
    So, I don’t rate performances and shift the company if I can without changing passwords and the rest of the nonsense. Life’s too short.

    Can’t help themselves.

    Why did the BBC manipulate this genuine photograph of white voter’s hand to make it black?

    The BBC was facing questions last night after it admitted using a ‘blacked up’ image as part of its election coverage.
    Politicians rounded on the corporation after it emerged staff might have doctored an image of a white woman’s hand to make it look like it was that of a black voter.
    An almost identical photo with a white hand had been used in a previous story about voting four years earlier.

    Both photos show a female hand with a French manicure, and blue and white striped cuffs, putting a blank piece of paper in a Welsh ballot box.

    The original image with the white hand is bylined Getty Images and was used on the BBC news website in 2018 in an article about lowering the voting age in Wales.

    The altered image with the black hand was used in March last year in a story about Welsh council elections.
    Tory MP Peter Bone said: ‘Why on earth would anyone want to change the colour of a hand? The BBC has serious questions to answer. First, they have got to explain why on earth that happened. What was the reasoning for it? What was the thought behind it? What were they trying to say? Why did they falsify the image?

    ‘The BBC is supposed to be neutral and present factual evidence.’

    He added: ‘They can’t say this was an accident because that doesn’t make any sense to me. They have really got serious questions to answer.’

    Another Conservative politician Bill Cash said: ‘This is a good indication of the way in which there are elements of the BBC who want to create a misleading impression.This is part of the fundamental problem with impartiality.’ Both articles and images can still be found on the BBC news website.

    A BBC spokesman said: ‘It appears that the photograph used as part of this graphic has been altered, which, although there is no intention to mislead, should not have happened and is not acceptable BBC practice. We will be reminding our staff of this.’

    The BBC has previously been criticised for its focus on identity issues and diversity, with some accusing it of being unduly influenced by ‘woke’ politics.

    After the murder of George Floyd sparked global protests in 2020, the corporation faced criticism over its coverage of the Black Lives Matter movement.



    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      The BBC simply hates white people and wants us all dead.


      • JohnC says:

        Not all white people Rob.

        Just all the males who voted for Brexit. They detest them. The BBC consider them to be untermensch. Inferior, lower-class, racist, sexist scum who they would ship out to a Gulag if they had the power.

        By who of course I mean the majority of people who actually do something useful for the country. All the tradesmen, carpenters, plumbers, truck drivers, shop workers and everybody else who suffers the real-world consequences of what these ideologically driven idiots try to force on us from inside their bizarre metropolitan bubbles.


        • Rob in Cheshire says:


          I truly think the BBC despise white people. Of course many of them are white. They hate themselves. They would cancel themselves if they could.

          Look at the Gladstone family, now drivelling on about how sorry they are that their family once owned slaves, almost 200 years ago. Do they expect to be thanked for their apology? They are fools if they do. Predictably, the usual crowd of race baiters are now after “reparations” from them.

          If the BBC could abolish the white race tomorrow, they would.

      That 23rd August Daily Mail story seems to plagiarising my own 15 August August tweet, which showed my earlier 20th Jan tweet with the side by side graphics

      My original tweet was 6th May 2022

      And I would have posted it here that day too

    In the US it recently emerged that just 33 per cent of Black Lives Matter’s accumulated donations of $90million (£71million) were given to charitable causes. Figures showed between 2020 and 2022 the group spent about $30million (£24million). It also emerged that friends and family of co-founder Patrisse Cullors benefitted, including her graffiti artist brother, Paul, who got $1.7million (£1.4million) in salary and contracts for this period.

    It is always interesting to guess who the bigger liar is:

    Cranebridgeshire police and crime commissioner FoI:
    Is Covid-19 vaccine driving safe? No answer, lying by omission.

    RT article:
    Prigozhin pilot had post-vaccine myocarditis, heart attack may be the cause of crash.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      Pilots and myocarditis is a big topic, not covered in the legacy media:

      1. Pilots are regularly tested for possible heart conditions and irregularities. Oddly, the number with possible problems has sky-rocketed during the past two years. So much so, that late last year the American FAA (Federal Aviation Authorities) quietly changed the standards to reduce the numbers of those failing the tests.

      2. During the pandemic, many owners and users of private planes (billionaires, politicians, luvvies and er, warlords) insisted that their pilots had been injected with the experimental gene therapy. Now it’s the complete opposite – they DON’T WANT pilots who were injected. You know, just in case they drop dead whilst in the cockpit…

      (Above information comes from a chap I know who pilots private planes for wealthy Middle Eastern clients).


      • atlas_shrugged says:


        Quite right. This is why the useless Cranebridgeshire police and crime commissioner will not answer my FoI question about if covid-19 vaccine driving is safe.

        The reason is that he has not got a clue if it is safe or not.

        In which case I ask why the hell they are pushing vaccines on people and most seriously on children if he has no idea if it is safe or not.

        I for one have noticed a large number of drivers careering off the road or crashing straight into pedestrians or cyclists. I have also seen the videos of planes returning to the airport because the captain has died.

    John Lewis joins M&S and Tesco in cutting price of period pants

    Here is the picture for the article. Majority are BAME and – in line with the latest agenda rules – most are fat. So that all the young fat girls who are borderline crazy feel comfortable about being overweight and don’t go kill themselves:


    … and straight to BBC ‘regions’:
    Nine Elms: Man stabbed to death in south-west London

    Another brief ‘basic facts only’ report with the usual complete lack of information about stabber or stabee. Unlike the lengthy essays we have been getting about two gay men who were stabbed and had to go to hospital before they were let home. Or the one who got punched and suffered a split lip.

    This is exactly what the BBC is now. 100% activists. They live in their own bizarre reality.

    BBC 1 has a new drama series starting at 9pm on Tuesday. It’s called “The Following Events Are Based on a Pack of Lies.”
    A title that could be used for most of their news programmes too.


    • JohnC says:

      lol, I’ve learned that these days ‘Based on true event’s’ means a complete pack of agenda-based lies using the word ‘true’ to try and make us think it actually happened.

      In the film ‘Belle’, we are told it is based on a true story about how the illigitimate half-cast daughter of a captain and one of his slaves joined forces with a lawyer and eventually she made a rousing speech in court which put the evil whitey slave traders who threw slaves into the sea into prison. Though of course in the film she isn’t half-cast. She’s fully black.

      And – of course – at all the upper-class balls, all the men went after her instead of the white women. Absolutely absurd in the context of the period.
      It all sounded fishy so I researched it. The only ‘truth’ is that she lived at around the same time as the event. She never knew the lawyer or had any dealing with anything to do with the slaves. bascially it is one huge lie being sold as truth.

      Of course when Muslims throw Christains out of the refugee boats, nobody wants to make a film about that. Or even report it.

    had a careful long montage section about horse-kick woman.

    Guess how many times they played the hunt saboteur clip showing the kick ?

    2 brief bits

    I’m sure some people here might hate her for disciplining the horse legally like that.

    But Twitter is a sewer of hate against her
    from the hatey lefties

    The same people that say Trump should be jailed for questioning the election result, now say
    ‘the court got it wrong , she’s guilty as hell and deserves all she gets’

    That is a class war thing
    cos the same people rarely mention rough conditions a portion (not all) of gypsies keep their horses in.
    eg almost abandoned on river banks and common land and sometimes falling in.

    Nadine Dorries: Conservative MP attacks PM as she quits Commons

    And another right-wing politician quits because of mainstream media pressure.

    How many is that now ?. This is way, way beyond a joke. It’s Leftist fascism. I’ll keep saying it : the West is now in the grip of the new-generation Nazis and they are getting bolder each time they get away with it. The Trump persecution is beyond unacceptable but the likes of the BBC just call it ‘historic’.

    And the BBC are right up there with the worst of them. What bugs me most is how they are the most guilty of all to lay on that pressure then report the resignation as if they are just innocent spectators.

    Sunak has turned out to be exactly what I thought he would be. Which of course is why the BBC leave him alone.

    The ‘free press’ is not utterly corrupted by the Leftist activists. Something has to be done before it’s too late. Lets pray Trump wins next year and goes settling some scores.


    • Fedup2 says:

      And what did you achieve Nadine ? Apart from a few years of MP / ministerial pension …… another lost bi election ….


      • JohnC says:


        But her removal by the MSM is far more significant for me. They must have forced half a dozen or more to resign now – simply by repeating the same story every day until the pressure is such that they are forced to resign. And ALL of them Brexiteers.

        The end result is that they fear the BBC. We must stop far-left activist monster.


        • Fedup2 says:


          If she – or any of them – were worth anything – I’d care. This afternoon I found myself writing a farewell letter to my MP – telling him I won’t be voting for him or Blue Labour – and that I wish it the oblivion it deserves … but I haven’t sent it as I know it is of no value – like the people like me dumb enough to think I was voting for a government of the ‘right ‘….

          My MP – IDS – was of the Right – but now he seems more interested in Chinese Muslims than the voters of chingford or Walthamstow – I don’t think his predecessor – Lord Tebbit – would have been as … inferior …

      They’ll wait until people have forgotten – he ll do an ‘interview ‘ with a ‘friendly ‘ – they’ll gauge the reaction ( so much sympathy Huw you poor thing ) – he ll sign up to be an ambo for a ‘mental health charity ‘ and then he ll be back on the BBC with a soft documentary and then back to ‘Normal’……

      …”A potential Reform Party candidate?”…

      I bloody well hope not.

      Nadine Dorries has been about as much use in Parliament as an ingrowing arris. She was four square behind the (so called) On Line Safety Bill, which was designed to curtail free speech and camouflaged to seem to protect the vulnerable.
      I wouldn’t trust her further than I can spit.

      I might actually vote for Reform.

      But not if she’s a member…

    Like a fool I watched Casualty for the first time in years tonight. The main plot thread involved a knife attack at an unspecified wimmin’s march.
    Domestic responsibilities prevented me from seeing the entire episode but I wanted to see who the knifeman was. I made a bet with myself that he’d be some sort of white incel and sure enough that’s what he was. The scene where he was brought in with all the medics lined up glaring their judgement was a masterpiece of unintentional humour. He started convulsing while being treated, I don’t know if his story was concluded.
    Of interest here will be some of his victims (and there were enough as if he had used a machine gun).
    One appeared to be a regular cast member, a fat Muslim woman who had some soapy stuff going on with a gay muzzy doc, acting as his beard.
    There was a trans treated in an ambulance. (S)he complained to the older female paramedic that many on the wimmin’s march wouldn’t want her there; of course the paramedic validated “her” by the end of the episode.
    Yet another was a Greenham Common veteran who dragged her granddaughter along. Said granddaughter had ambitions of being a pilot and had sustained a serious eye injury, oh dear. Of course they reconciled by the end with the girl convinced of the need for protest.
    I can’t remember much else. The final scene was bog standard doctors and nurses soap, with two who supposedly dislike each other getting down to some shagging in an office.
    I’ve just read through this post, it’s a shame Leslie Nielsen is no longer with us, it would make a great Airplane style parody.

    If we are going to split up , I want it to be done fairly, without malice , and good fortune on all nations . As an Englishman I still will travel up to Scotland for visits and telling my Scottish (?) relatives living in England [ who have never been born in Scotland and sometimes their one parent of Scottish ancestry hasn’t either ] that their time has come to take their talents to help Caledonia strive for economic well-being .

    Chris Packham . I vaguely know who Chris packham is – but I know he is strongly bbc approved as a green crap nazi disciple and makes a living telling people they need to do this or that – along the lines of the mayor of londonistan

    Anyway packham did a piece on The one show ( never seen ) about an endangered bird called the goshawk. Apparently he needed a licence to film them up close .

    Someone ( an enemy ) spotted this and found he had no licence – which becomes a crime . So it’s reported to plod .

    There’s no outcome yet . But what this shows is the war between green crap types and dissenters . Personally let’s hope packham gets sent down by the beak – won’t happen of course because plod and the courts are fully woke …
