Start the Week 28th August 2023

How will the BBC report the incoming Ultra Low Emissions Scheme being inflicted on unapproved vehicles in London from Tuesday 29th ? I think we can guess – and other towns and cities will be encouraged to get their schemes too …

    Look at this : this is 100% what the BBC are full of to me:

    France to ban Muslim students wearing abayas in state schools – BBC News

    The anchor is an attractive BAME woman. Like all the clones.

    Then check out the ‘seasoned’ reporter. He’s just odd. We’ve all known people like him and everybody talks about them behind their backs. They are not bad people – just ‘different’ to everybody else. You know 100% that he would not last 5 minutes if he had to survive in the ‘real’ world. I’m certain he could not change the wheel on his car.

    But the BBC employ them in bucketloads because they are their kind of ‘odd’.

    Remember that all of the ‘news’ we are being force-fed by the BBC are from many others just like him. I know from experience Jonathan Head who reports on SE Asia is a very similar grubby kind of journalist.

      BBC France correspondent there is Hugh Schofield
      Cardiff born but he and his brother went to a posh Bristol school and then Oxford uni, where his brother still works
      July 2016 Schofield wrote an article for BBC News Online in which he praised France for responding to the murder by Islamic State of a French priest, by decapitation
      The piece was accompanied by a photograph of the teenage jihadist
      The caption quoted “Forgive them – they know not what they do.”

      The female newsreader looks to be of Indian origin.

      You can see the topics the BBC YouTube channel seems to highlight

      ‘The British people have chosen not to question very thoroughly what their politicians say and do about Russia’

      The British people cannot question anything like that. They are swamped by the likes of the BBC. I have questioned what we are being told on BBC HYS many times and every time my comment is quickly deleted because ‘it might offend others’. Just look at OFCOM : they are absolutely part of the problem.

      I absolutely believe we are living in the time of the rise of the new Nazis. How long it will take and whether they will succeed is unknown – but they are boiling a frog. If they impose their fascism in small enough steps, it will be far too late by the time the British people realise what has happened.

      The Left never expose their true self until they are confident you can’t do anything about it. But you can occasionally see the hate and spite of the BBC through the cracks when they can’t contain themselves on topics like Brexit and Trump.

    A random thought- because banks have disappeared from the High Street and do everything they can to be obstructive to their customers, why do we still need Bank Holidays? They have been an irrelevant anachronism for years and I’d vote for any party that pledged to scrap the lot.


    • JohnC says:

      I’m enjoying my bank holiday very much thank you – even though I detest bankers in the same way I detest lawyers.

      They both enter that career for one reason : greed.


    • StewGreen says:

      Bank holidays are entirely free to the taxpayer
      as the costs of staff wages and empty buildings and work delays
      are all paid for by magic unicorns
      Labour will make sure we have 10 more bank holidays per year

    They can’t help it !

    Daily mail : ” 8 stabbed one critical after Notting Hill carnival ”

    BBC ” Notting Hill carnival celebrates windrush in blaze of colour”

    Very very last sentences of BBC article way way down page full of pictures of “windrush bus” etc hidden at bottom as afterthought ..”19 year old serious but stable, police said six men sustained non life threatening injuries in separate stabbing instances”

    Mostly peaceful then as usual ! Beyond further words ! Disgusting BBC bias. “Windrush legacy” clearly there to be seen but not by the BBC

    The met plod commissioner has told his staff that they mustn’t wear woke badges any more – no knee taking or suppprting green crap . Will they go on strike . ?

    A lot of energy will now go into undermining him and that policy . I’m guessing that those wonderful tattoos will be used to get round the ban as the woke kidults are so pro some approved causes ( road closing ) but against others ( investigating crime ) .
    BTW – the home sec is accused of political interference by telling plod to investigate crime …..

    New RNLI fundraiser?


  11. Sluff says:

    The has started.
    I look forward to the BBC informing us about the current air pollution rates across a representative range of sites for the last 6 months and then informing us on a monthly basis of the rates for the next 6 months. That way , we could see the actual effect of the measures. If the rates decline only marginally they can then robustly interview Sad Dick Khan.

    Hands up those you who think the BBC can be bothered to do this?
    Just as I thought. No-one.


  12. Sluff says:

    Back in the day I had some involvement in haulage and the opportunity to benefit from ‘return loads’. That’s when a lorry might otherwise return empty after a delivery so could sometimes offer very low prices for a delivery on the return trip.

    It occurs to me that all the rubber cross channel ferry crossings are one-way. If the traffickers could only advertise their services for the return trip, foot passengers from Dover to Calais could benefit from serious competition.

      Impossible as Border Farce have to hang onto the dinghies used in case the owner wants them back. So not only does the taxpayer have to keep the channel hoppers in luxury but also keep the boats they used in safe storage.

    The londonistan mayoral election is in May 2024. I wonder how many councils will be watching to see the outcome – as well as the income generated by ULEZ . I recall that when the central London version came in Khan didn’t get anything like the amount of cash needed to fuel TFL so he had to go to the governmenf – I think he has done it x4 now as he is crap at managing finances .

    The above won’t be reported on the BBC because he is approved – a paki – far left – so ticks all the boxes .

    As for the election – whether fixed Biden Obama style or by ‘conventional ‘ voting the londonistan socislist welfare addicts will keep him in power as the decent taxpayers go looking for a better place to live and accelerate the third world take over of what is now a dump …

    The future is just in time and Margo knows edition

    Our media runs on fads. Lazy desk-bound journos enjoy nothing better than a buzz word-themed headline. A favourite flavour of the day these days is the invocation of the term AI. Particularly when a bit of corporate PR fluff pops up in the in-box.

    Here’s our BBC today – just asking – as they say: How long until a robot is doing your chores? …in the coming decades a new product will be rolled out… says Geordie Rose, the chief executive of Sanctuary AI… The Vancouver-based firm is developing a humanoid robot called Phoenix which, when complete, will understand what we want, understand the way the world works and have the skills to carry out our commands.

    Ah, those shiny utopian future uplands of fully automated luxury communism… a social credit fibre-optic 5G solid-state track-and-trace digital ID pipe dream… or perhaps not… to borrow a catchphrase from Lucas & Walliams’s comic sketch show Little Britian – “Computer says no”

    Air Traffic computer chaos… The UK’s air traffic control computer suffered a major bank holiday melt-down with thousands of passengers stranded at home and abroad… controllers were forced to switch from automated landing and dispatch to a manual system… (giveaway Metro)

    From one prescient vision of our customer service future – Dave Walliam’s unhelpful and disinterested receptionist behind the official desk – in obvious drag

    Then again a chap named Dave was once on the receiving end

    We recall Hal 9000 calmly intoning way back in 1968: “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that”

    To compound the problem, airline websites crashed, customer services phone numbers went unanswered… (Daily Mail)

    Our BBC has a dedicated feature header titled AI. It’s certainly not all good news: Toyota halts all Japan assembly plants due to glitch… The move has brought domestic production at the world’s biggest-selling car maker to a standstill… Its operations were hit last year after one of its suppliers was affected by a cyber attack… Toyota is a pioneer of the so-called “just-in-time” production system, which keeps costs down but can be vulnerable to problems if deliveries of components are disrupted. (BBC)

    How’s that proxy war going?

    Ukraine froces progress… sign its offensive is gaining pace (FT)

    ‘Dying by the dozens every day’ – Ukraine losses climb… Ukraine gives no official toll of its war dead – the Ukrainian armed forces have reiterated that their war casualty numbers are a state secret – but Margo knows the losses are huge. At her cluttered desk outside the mortuary’s heavy door, she sits, pen in hand. It is her job to record the particulars of the fallen. (BBC)

    So, this Ulez thing… discouraging us from car driving, that’s all about the big Net Zero push to reduce pollution thereby saving childrens’ lives and saving the planet, right?

    Ulez expanded to include whole of outer London (BBC)

    Ulez misery starts now (The Sun)

    It’s painful but we’re nudged – Ulez is more of a sharp poke in the ribs – but for our own good? Clean healthy Britain is the priority. Or so we’re being told.

    Pollution rules could change to ease housebuilding… plans to change water pollution rules in a bid to enable more houses to be built… Come again? …in a bid to enable more houses to be built. Councils in protected areas of England do not currently allow new developments unless they are “nutrient neutral”. Ministers could water this down (BBC) – credit where credit is due and kudos to the BBC’s Ione Wells, Political correspondent, for tabloidesque punning of the first water there… Wells, get it? Oh, please yourselves.

    No such praise due to Yasmin Rufo, BBC News, for this arresting offence to sense and understanding: Members of Mr Khan’s own party were also hesitant to support the police after Labour lost the by-election in Boris Johnson’s former seat of Uxbridge and Ruislip – surely our Yasmin means ‘policy’ in reference to Ulez, not the police? (reluctant as one is to criticise simple typos)

    Labour supports the police, right?

    ‘Tackling retail crime must be a priority for the next Labour government’ (Labour List) – so that’s ok then.

    The Times newspaper certainly supports Labour: Labour more trusted than Tories on tax, immigration and law (Times)

    The female-interest Times has a stern message for us chaps: Get a grip on life-style to cut heart attacks, men urged (Eleanor Hayward, Health Correspondent, Amsterdam)

    The Daily Mail defends the use of a shrewish scolding tone: Why a nagging partner may just save your life!

    The left-leaning ‘i’ of course prefers to go single: ‘What 20 years of singledom have taught me’

    But nevertheless complains about any downside to that choice: The ‘tax’ on being single has cost me tens of thousands (‘i’)

    Time for a funny little juxtaposition of feature headlines, anyone?

    The joys of indoor gardening (‘i’)

    ‘I went from faking orgasms to having 23 a day’ (‘i’)

    And any further comment on indoor activities would seem superfluous, as one tends to say.

      With a bit of luck all the lady footy types will stay on strike for the rest of the season

      The offending man will – of course – lose his job and be expected to commit suicide after killing his family as a gesture to the ascendency of the female and the descendency of the now unwanted male …. Particulary the non coloured ones …..

    Luis Rubiales: Spanish Football Federation regional presidents call for resignation

    As predicted, new front-page headline every day until he resigns.

    Just like they did so successfully to all the Brexiteer ministers – including the Prime Minister (with support from their fellow remainer contacts in civil service of course).

    And each time they get away with it, they are a bit bolder the next time.

    This is what Kasia Delgado of far-Left i-news has written:
    ‘Every woman knows a man like Luis Rubiales – and that’s why its so important he is forced out of football’.

    ‘It’s an extremely crowded field, but there’s a new contender for Most Odious Man With Powerful Job 2023.’

    Why stop there Kasia ?. Why not string him up as an example?. Maybe you should go around pointing out all those you don’t like the look of and they get strung up as well ?.

    Nobody dare say anything against this agenda given the pressure the likes of the BBC are applying and whipping up the activists. This is how leftist fascism works : the oppression of opposing opinions through hate.

    TOADY Watch #1 – oh dear, a BBC error ….

    … wot? Another one? The BBC announce that today the toady ruling London introduced “a charge against older polluting vehicles.” The BBC really ought to have been aware, ‘Top Gear’ and all that malarkey, that the most polluting vehicles can still be driven in London without paying the ULEZ Charge.

    It is rumoured that wealthy Londoners have been buying up classic cars, those registered before a certain date (I think it is before 1983) to drive for free in the ULEZones. I haven’t confirmed that fact but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is true. If Sadiq Khan really wished to improve air quality in London, he could start by taking out the road humps, sleeping policemen and repairing the road surfaces. That would help CO2 emitting cyclists emit less CO2!


    • Fedup2 says:

      Include cyclists in ULEZ . Anyone who breaths too much will need to pay the charge – tandems pay double … off to look for 1982 allegro ..


    • Sluff says:

      Given that tire and brake wear causes more PM2.5 particulates than from vehicle exhausts, not to mention particulates from the friction on the road surface, and given that electric cars, by reason of their great weight, therefore cause more tire, brake, and road surface particulates than ordinary petrol/ diesel cars……
      Can we expect Sad Dick Khan to impose a special ULEZ penalty fee on electric cars ?????

      I think the BBC ‘investigative journalists’ should enquire.

    There’s an interview ( I think ) in the telegraph today with our Justin of ‘today’ fame – it includes something about how he gets up at 3am ….

    … I think I’ve converted to ‘global warming ‘. I ve had to put on my heavy duty motor bike jacket – putting away the summer variant until next year ( if spared ) . This has happened a day before I did it last year – since records began – which proves the need for an 85p a day dual fuel daily standing charge….

    A propos of nothing.
    Driving around the M42 the other day. Mile after mile of 50 mph speed limits and jams. Why? Because they are ‘upgrading’ by replacing the old-fashioned central reservation metal barriers with concrete.

    This got me thinking. How many motorway accidents arise from a vehicle crossing onto the opposite carriageway? And thus what are we actually trying to achieve by causing years of traffic chaos, not to mention vast retro-fitting cost? For what actual improvement?

    So far I have not found out. But in trying I arrived at the website of ‘Brake’, one the road safety zealot pressure groups.. There, they provide some selected statistics and among them was this amazing one.

    That 30% of all road fatalities involve a car user not wearing a seat belt.

    When we consider that 2 million speeding tickets a year are given out annually but only 6% of accidents are caused by exceeding the speed limit, you do wonder what the hell the authorities are up to, when the main cause of deaths is staring them in the face.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I think people should have the freedom not to wear seat belts – ..guys and gals …if they want to put their heads through windscreens at a speed of 50 mph to zero – that’s their choice …
      As for road works – road closures with no work done for days – I think it’s the new national hobby …


      • Sluff says:

        With you 100% on the road works.
        Driving around Canada a few months back, it was very noticeable that at road works (and some of them were major engineering challenges in the Rockies), the workforce were really putting their backs into it, a hive of activity and effort. No slouching over there.

        Compare with the M25/A3 junction widening. What a contrast. What a laugh. Hardly anyone is doing anything yet the junction capacity is reduced by around 50% for the next 2 years, providing reduced productivity and quality of life to tens of thousands of people daily.
        The DfT is totally pathetic.

          Wearing seat belts reduces the amount of transplant organs which adds to the number of deaths of people awaiting organs.

    • tomo says:

      Now look at he special barriers they put around motorway bridges.


    • Deborah says:

      For over a year long stretches of the A1 have had low speed limits imposed (either with cameras on poles or frequent appearances of the vans) because of ‘carriageway repairs’. What this seems to mean is they have pulled up the old barriers whilst due to supply problems, haven’t got the new ones. I am now so into conspiracy theories I could believe the lower speed limits will be permanent.


      • Sluff says:

        It’s already happening.
        The M1 around Sheffield has a permanent ‘smart Motorway’ speed limit of 60 mph ‘to reduce pollution’.
        This applies even on Christmas Day when there is no pollution because there are hardly any cars.

        It’s just another example of the socialist aim of collectivising transport by making private transport as expensive, mind-numbing and unenjoyable as possible.


      • BRISSLES says:

        I concur with that Deb, it used to take me just under 2 hours within the 70 mph speed limit to get from junct10 on the A1 to Blyth near Doncaster, now with endless miles of 40 mph it takes an extra 30-40 minutes.

  27. RightSide says:

    Lots of nonsense about the Notting Hill Carnival on Twitter at the moment with people claiming that Glastonbury is equally violent with similar crime figures.

    There is a caveat though. The crime figures reported by the media of the NHC only cover what the Met Police label the NHC Area.

    Whilst it took quite a while, I was able to find about the boundaires of that area. It covers only the main parade part and only the final third – which is were most of the familes are. That small area of just over a miles have 3000 plus police officers and is heavily CCTV.

    The 2-mile route preceding it and the surroundings roads are not included in the crime figures for the NHC Area, but instead are added to the local borough’s figures.

    Pre-2009 (when there where riots) the crime figures included the whole NHC and the surrounds. But to make it appear the police where doing a good job and that the blacks aren’t violent and law breakers, the new NHC area was devised.

    On top of that, the Met use Section 40(2)(3)&(4) – Personal Information (Details of an investigation could cause an individual to be identified) of the Freedom of Information Act to not even release the accurate number for the small NHC Area.

    Also, the festival itself was started by a white woman for children, which got invaded by a black steel band who caused so much trouble the police moved them on and the band ‘paraded’ in protest.

    The blacks hijacked the NHC.

    Most of the above about the Police came from a Twitter account which has since been DELETED and it came from someone claiming to be an ex-copper. I checked a lot of the facts and they are unfortunately true.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I should think a lot of attacks will be away from the ‘organised ‘ bit and on the underground system – easier to ‘target ‘ …. And of course a lot of people won’t bother reporting to plod because they know it will be a waste of time ….


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      I can confirm that. A few years ago, a friend of mine was at home during this unwanted event. It was a warm day – remember, the way it used to be in August before global warming kicked it – so the window was open. Suddenly, a large pair of black hands came in and snatched away the laptop he was working on. Some of his neighbours experienced similar violations. He reported it to the police, saying he had been robbed during the ‘carnival’. ‘No, you haven’t. It’s nothing to do with the carnival” was their helpful response. Apparently the demarcation line ran down the middle of his street, about 6 feet away from his window. Ergo, it was absolutely nothing to do with the vibrancy.

      Multiculturalism = the right to be robbed, raped, assaulted or murdered in your own country by someone from elsewhere

      The history of Notting Hill Carnival: how riots inspired London’s biggest party
      As the city’s best shindig returns, here’s the story behind the celebrations

      But it’s much more than just a party or an excuse to get piss-faced. Behind the origins of Carnival is a turbulent story that follows Notting Hill’s West Indian community after it protested at the 1958 race riots to establish its identity in London and unapologetically celebrate Caribbean culture. Though Londoners may come to Carnival without the foggiest of ideas about why the event exists, the political significance of Carnival is as important today as it’s ever been.


      • RightSide says:

        “1966: a promising start

        Moving from a town hall to the streets, Carnival began to take shape in 1966. Community activists Rhaune Laslett and Andre Shervington organised a street ‘fayre’ for children in Notting Hill in that year and invited well-known Trinidadian musician Russell Henderson, who conducted an impromptu procession through the streets, led by the distinctive beat of calypso music. Together with elements from Claudia Jones’s 1959 London Caribbean Carnival, it formed what we now recognise as the iconic NHC: music, community and processing through the streets of Notting Hill.”

        This is such a twisted account. The first NHC was white. Nothing to do with Claudia Jones’s 1959 London Caribbean Carnival. The organisers had no idea about the 1959 indoor concert held at St Pancras.

        Henderson was not invited. He protested the original NHC disrupting it with steel bands and was moved on by the police. He repeated it the following 2 years bringing larger numbers with him each time until the organsiers had no choice but to include them.

        From 1972 onwards the blacks completely invaded the festival and removed all elements of white culture from it.

        What had started as a white-based diverse cultural festival had become overtaken by the blacks and the diversity extinguished. Pretty much like what they always do when diversity takes control.

    Well, Carnage is over for another year and both the BBC and London’s useless runt mayor tell us that it was another wonderful success. “A celebration of diversity and Caribbean culture” Unfortunately, I don’t believe them…

    I’ve seen some of the unofficial film of this ghastly ghetto mob-fest and it looks absolutely horrendous. Crammed in people, 99% of whom seem to be black, no control by police and certain sources tell us of attempted rapes, several stabbings and one bloke fighting for his life. How absolutely vibrant… I wouldn’t visit this sh1t-hole event for all the tea in China.

    On a personal note, my London music festivals will finish tomorrow with the last brass band of the summer playing in the beautiful gardens of Westminster Abbey.

    No police, no spliffs, no muggings and no attempted rapes. And we always finish with the national anthem. I doubt they played that at carnival.

    Oh…and 99% of the attendees will be white…

    It occured to me that I had done the racist/sexist discrimination check for the BBC UK front page recently so I had a look. Here’s what faces I could see:

    13 White women
    5 BAME women
    2 BAME men
    4 White men

    What an amazing coincidence : we complain a lot about the BBC’s racism, sexism and blatant misandry against white males and here they are at 40% of the UK population but only featuring in 8% of the pictures they chose.

    Case closed.

    ‘Dying by the dozens every day’ – Ukraine losses climb

    After months of everyone else knowing it, the BBC have finally had to start the process of acknowledging that the counter offensive has totally failed.

    If you take the actual news in that article, there is about a paragraphs worth. The rest of this extremely lengthy article is pure BBC ’empathy’ about the poor Ukranians and nasty Russians.

    And no such BBC article would be complete without a picture like this:
    ‘Oksana has now signed up to the military herself’

    And – as usual – everything she is wearing is clearly brand new.

    It’s clear now that Russia are going nowhere. I wonder how long it will be before the entire narrative will change.

    This line struck home for me : it’s a complete lie:

    The Russians won’t stop, he said, “you can’t negotiate with them”.
    Nobody can negotiate with the Russians because the Americans won’t let them. If anyone tries, they do something to sabotage it.

    The licence and a piece in the telegraph – enjoy

    Households are being bombarded with millions of enforcement letters sent by the BBC as its TV licence revenues fall.

    Over 36 million licence enforcement letters were sent to addresses that do not have a licence in the last financial year, The Telegraph can reveal.

    It comes as the broadcaster faces soaring numbers of people evading the £159 annual payment, while the corporation attempts to compete with online streaming services.

    Enforcement letters from TV Licensing are known to warn recipients that they could be falling foul of the law by not paying and warn them an officer may visit their address.

    TV Licensing, which operates the income-generating licence fee for the BBC, has been steadily increasing the number of letters it sends out enforcing the legal requirement for viewers to pay to watch live television programmes and catch-up on iPlayer.

    In the financial year from 2022 to 2023 the BBC sent 36,166,582 letters to households, up just over 1pc on the 35,695,538 sent between 2021 and 2022 and approximately 6pc on the 34 million reportedly sent between 2020 and 2021.

    The broadcaster, which faced criticism for announcing it will withdraw free licences for the over 75s in 2020, has reported falling revenues from TV licences as viewers turn to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, a report from TV Licensing warned last year.

    The same report revealed that almost two million households informed the BBC that they did not watch live television and therefore did not require a licence, equating to £42m in lost revenue.

    The number of people failing to pay for the licence while potentially still watching live television and using iPlayer also hit record levels this year.

    The latest figures show that licence fee evasion hit 10.31pc between 2022 and 2023, the highest levels since 1995, costing the corporation £430m, according to annual statements.

    A spokesman for TV Licensing said: “The overwhelming majority of households are correctly licensed. TV Licensing has a responsibility to communicate with unlicensed households to support the collection of the licence fee. The letters generate more funds than they cost to send, so more money can be spent on programmes and services.”ENDS

    the survey asking whether the licence should be scraped has – at the time of writing – heading for 17000 votes of which 92% say yes – the other 8% are BBC employees /. trough users

    ….. so only 10% don’t pay the licence – come on let’s get it to 20% …..

      Hello Fedup

      Personally never watch, and wouldn’t want the bbc in its current format

      I can never understand why the likes of tv licencing insist we either buy a licence or tell them we dont need one

      Its like a upvc window salesman knocking my door and insisting I tell them whether I want windows or NOT

      As far as I know the public does not have to inform them if not needed?

    Palestinian fears grow amid rising Israeli settler attacks

    Yet another emapthy-soaked lengthy article by the BBC all designed to make you side with whoever they want you to side with.

    So I did a quick check of what else is going on there and find this from last week. NOT reported by the BBC of course:

    ‘Suspected Palestinian gunman kills an Israeli, wounds another in latest attack in occupied West Bank’

    ‘The combustible mix of armed Palestinians carrying out shooting attacks as well as near-nightly — and often deadly — raids by the Israeli army to arrest militants has fueled the worst fighting in the West Bank in nearly two decades.’

    The BBC have clearly used the same source as the above article – but they have deliberately changed the wording to hide cause-and-effect:

    ‘The trend comes against the background of a surge in tensions in the West Bank this year, with near-nightly Israeli military raids and a spate of Palestinian assaults.’

    Written by BBC reporter Yolande Knells who has been pulled apart for this same bias before:

    BBC 1 pm news.

    The BBC are celebrating Sad Dick Khans ULEZ zone.
    It re-iterates helpfully that in 2013 a girl one girl with pre-existing asthma, died and the coroner agreed that air pollution was a cause of death. On that basis 10 million people now are given the ULEZ zone. Could the estimated £1 billion a year Sad Dick hopes to make from the scheme possibly have anything to do with it?
    Strangely, the BBC have not considered this, as they broadcast their vox pops where, hey presto, people are in favour, including the dead’s girl relative, an African-heritage black woman with a big towel on her head. So, no agenda there.


    • MarkyMark says:

      The actual number of people dying because of it are therefore lower than the estimates. That said, the most recent data we have shows that between about 490,000 to 760,000 Africans died due to inhaling cooking smoke in 2015.23 Nov 2016

    TWatO Watch #1 – ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’. “Crisis, what crisis?” © 1979 James Callaghan MP as Labour Party PM

    Apparently, according to TWatO who are looking at so-called ‘fast fashion’ all this week, we in the UK buy five times as many clothes, even during ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’ as in other European countries and only wear them around seven times before getting rid of them. We should all be feeling very guilty implies the BBC.

    But I don’t feel guilty at all. I tend to wear my clothes out in various stages. Smarter ones on Sundays and at the Memorial Services which come round with astonishing frequency these days. Tolerably decent for every day use in public places. Less passable that could be worn in public, hoping people do not look too closely. 😉 After that stage, clothes are promoted to ‘gardening duties’ and ‘house days’ only. Then, when the holes are incapable of being patched or lived with, clothes are often turned into rags, if suitable, for various household tasks.

    But what I really came to post about was that we have further evidence that ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’ tends to be a political construct of the Left, initiated by the BBC, and promoted by certain newspapers.

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – exactly how many, BBC?

    Further evidence, if any is needed, that ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’ is a fabrication of the Left and mostly initiated by friends of the Left in the media, especially the BBC: the large number of Brits stranded abroad by the UK’s Air Traffic Control problems. The BBC themselves say “after thousands of people were left stranded by the technical glitch.”

    Could be ninety-nine thousand, could be twenty-five thousand. Perhaps Marianna could ‘Verify’ exactly how many? Oh, silly me! That would give the game away on the so-called ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’.

    2007 … The nine points: fact or fallacy?
    · The film claimed that low-lying inhabited Pacific atolls “are being inundated because of anthropogenic global warming” – but there was no evidence of any evacuation occurring

    · It spoke of global warming “shutting down the ocean conveyor” – the process by which the gulf stream is carried over the north Atlantic to western Europe. The judge said that, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it was “very unlikely” that the conveyor would shut down in the future, though it might slow down

    · Mr Gore had also claimed – by ridiculing the opposite view – that two graphs, one plotting a rise in C02 and the other the rise in temperature over a period of 650,000 years, showed “an exact fit”. The judge said although scientists agreed there was a connection, “the two graphs do not establish what Mr Gore asserts”

    · Mr Gore said the disappearance of snow on Mt Kilimanjaro was expressly attributable to human-induced climate change. The judge said the consensus was that that could not be established

    · The drying up of Lake Chad was used as an example of global warming. The judge said: “It is apparently considered to be more likely to result from … population increase, over-grazing and regional climate variability”

    · Mr Gore ascribed Hurricane Katrina to global warming, but there was “insufficient evidence to show that”

    · Mr Gore also referred to a study showing that polar bears were being found that had drowned “swimming long distances to find the ice”. The judge said: “The only scientific study that either side before me can find is one which indicates that four polar bears have recently been found drowned because of a storm”

    · The film said that coral reefs all over the world were bleaching because of global warming and other factors. The judge said separating the impacts of stresses due to climate change from other stresses, such as over-fishing, and pollution, was difficult

    · The film said a sea-level rise of up to 20ft would be caused by melting of either west Antarctica or Greenland in the near future; the judge ruled that this was “distinctly alarmist”

    Gore’s climate film has scientific errors – judge

    In 2020, Thorp called the actor Laurence Fox a racist. To teach her a lesson, Fox promptly responded by labelling her a paedophile, to demonstrate just how irritating it is when false accusations are made against you. Nicola responded by suing Fox for defamation. In August 2023, the Court of Appeal dismissed her claim, noting that the ordinary reasonable reader would have completely understood the non-defamatory lesson that Fox was trying to teach Thorp. Fox’s defamation claim against Nicola Thorp remains ongoing.
