    Rescuers struggle to reach mountain regions after Morocco quake

    And they’re off. Unlimited suffering available for empathy-reporting overload.

    As much as it disgusts me to say it, I am convinced the BBC get very excited when some disaster like this happens. It means suffering on a huge scale and the chance to win one of their own incestuous awards if they can make it more like a scene in a movie than real life.

    They simply cannot report the facts as they are. They want to write things like this:

    ‘The minaret has fallen, some of rubble has crushed the bonnet of a car and skinny stray cats are roaming around the wreckage.

    A few metres away, business owners are sweeping the dust-covered streets outside their cafes.

    As the sun came up, families who fled to open spaces in fear of aftershocks packed up their blankets.’

    Stand by for a little bit of actual reporting and absolutely masses of empathy about one or two individuals. I’m quite certain the BBC are walking among the ruins right now looking for people who speak English and getting in the way of rescuers like they always do.

      JohnC, yes, you are right; BBC after devastation glory. They will probably blame it all on Man-made Global Warming and Climate Change with emphasis on the Man-made bit.

      Memo to BBC: cats in hot climates and in the UK in summer generally look skinny as most cats put on weight in winter and lose it in summer. Second point: in poorer countries people do not have the disposable income to feed cats. Third point: you have obviously understood that Morocco is a Muslim country, so dogs would not generally be kept as pets. Fourth point BBC: not many countries have the same obsession of keeping animals as pets as does the UK. Fifth and final point BBC: not everybody, even in the UK, is as affluent and wealthy as a BBC journalist with an expenses claim sheet that is paid by the taxpayer.

    These brainwashed graduate Manchurian Candidates such
    as the researcher in the House of Commons have
    now become a spreading virus which in the long
    run will do more damage than the Covid which China
    “exported” to the rest of the world.
    These anarchist Marxist lecturers form our universities
    have brilliantly done the bidding of their mentor Willi Muenzenberg and his ” Frankfurt School”
    All our major institutions and corporations are now riddled
    with these graduates . Now in senior positions . Be it at the
    BBC , the banks, advertising industry whose sole ambition
    is to bring the UK and the west to its knees . And they
    are succeeding.

      “Two men arrested under Official Secrets Act”


      Is this a ‘first’?: No, not black but chinese…………… Will we get to know before they are clandestinely sent back to China?

      The UK, being of a lesser interest/importance, you can imagine the density of the spies embedded in the US Government.

    I guess, like many here, I thoroughly enjoy videos by the likes of Victor Davis Hanson and ‘Theodore Darlymple’ (aka. Anthony Malcolm Daniels).

    Here’s a video by the latter which is well worth watching on, the subject of the ‘Projects’ in France and those young African/ muslim immigrants who inhabit same. If you watch the full 38 minutes, you might, like me, take on a different perspective on those fleeing France on rubber boats. The possibilities will dawn on you along the way and you will perhaps also take a different view of the oft used expressions, “fleeing though a ‘Safe Country'”; “where do they get the money from to pay the traffickers?”; “why to they throw their passports overboard”; “mainly military age young men” etc. Darlymple doesn’t explore the subject of economic migrants illegally entering the UK because it is not a subject he considers but, I’ll wager, if the likelihood of French ‘Citizens’ escaping France and heading for the UK ‘for a fresh business opportunity’ in selling drugs and armaments were made to him, he might himself concede the vast possibilities. Are we importing mainly French citizens? Multilingually, they could convince anyone that they principally came from Africa/muslim countries or elsewhere.

    On that thesis, the questions must be asked, do HM Home Office check fingerprints with the French authorities? and, do they use interpreters speaking French?

    Or, is this quite simply an arrangement between French Gvt and Rich Sunak and his predecessors to share the burden of the formers failures and to provide the British Gvt with a rich source of “fighting age young men” to use locally, everywhere they are in the UK to man their malitia if the indigenous ‘rise up’. Probably one of the reasons every object is now legally considered, “an offensive weapon”.

    Much food for thought.


  4. Sluff says:

    Anyone care to wager whether this story will make it prominently in the BBC?

    The Sunday Telegraph reports that the cost of de-commissioning the nation’s gas pipe work infrastructure, which will become redundant as nett zero and heat pumps loom, will be a mere….£65 bn. It may be needed as buried pipework left in place will decay, break and so potentially will cause subsidence in the structure above it. You know. Roads. Buildings. That sort of thing.

    Money doesn’t grow on trees no matter how much the government and even more so, the Far Left, think it.

    The bill will thus pass to the homeowner, over £2000 each.
    A fact the eco-loonies have chosen not to share. Still, a small price to pay to reduce global CO2 emissions by ……less than 1%.

    If only we could all just live in mud huts, wear animal skins (if the animal rights loonies would allow it) and stop breathing.

      Have no fear Sluff, this current labour government will simply hand the baton on to the next labour government next year. Despair.

    I’ve ‘hacked’ the Microsoft Windows Update (surveillance) problem I referred to here some months ago. I know I’ve done that because I’ve received an email from MS remining me of my legal obligations under the “License Agreement”. Proving that they surveil everything you do on your machine including deleting so-called, ‘Updates’ and, being, ‘inside the machine’ so-to-speak’ they are also ‘inside’ the perimeters of any VPN.

    My ‘system’ didn’t even like the fact that I transferred critical information to a thumb drive and I work on that when necessary. ‘It’ told me that the drive on the machine didn’t recognise the thumb equipment yet did not have a problem when I inserted the same thumb drive in a vacant port on the back of the machine.

    Now, other weird messages from MS concerning, “turning on the Optional Diagnostics Data”.

    I will shortly be going over to a Linux based operating system to avoid MS and their surveillance altogether.

        What do the BBC know. Even the butchest white male BBC journalist cannot be sent to report from the front line, as its not a ‘Safe Space’ for a modern day Metrosexual. They cant even send BBC girls to report from inner city shitholes, and don’t care a shit about the half million mRNA jab injured MHRA yellow card reports, piling up on to the 7.5 million NHS waiting list. BBC Journalists sit at home and get their reports from internet propaganda approved by the CIA run, censorship industrial complex.

  12. pugnazious says:

    The BBC, as the arbiter and guardian of The Truth, is swift to denounce and demonise those who say anything that undermines the BBC’s own worldview and narrative…and yes, the BBC is the promoter, propagandist and defender of certain, many, contentious ideologies, narratives and messages.

    There is no Great Reset, no Great Replacement, no climate change hoax[at least as far as blaming CO2…it is the culprit…and is not a very convenient and political scapegoat that allows the enaction of Marxist attacks on capitalism and the West], no climate lockdowns, no ‘coup’ in the US or UK to remove Presidents and PMs that the media class doesn’t like.

    And apparently there’s no ‘war on motorists’…says Lewis Goodall…you can take the man out of the BBC but not the BBC mindset out of the man…..

    ‘Few myths are as undying as the idea that there is a “war on motorists”.

    This cry has gone up repeatedly throughout the summer as the expansion of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (Ulez) has inched closer. Every day a newspaper proclaims that Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, abhors cars and those who drive them. This fits into a longer-running narrative, central to British political life, that “the motorist” is a persecuted and put-upon minority, misunderstood and despised by political elites.’

    I don’t think I need to list the innumerable ways the car is being taxed, fined, regulated and driven off the roads.

    I guess much as the 30,000 security force personnel in Northern Ireland were not fighting a ‘war’ there is no war on cars.

      Our World Today: Why Governments Must Act Now


  14. tomo says:

    The greatest man you’ve never heard of died this week on Wednesday, September 6th.

    Marcel Boiteux built the French nuclear fleet as head of national utility EdF, making superb, far-sighted decisions against powerful entrenched interests.

    Decisions such as abandoning the poorly-performing French gas reactors for outstanding Westinghouse technology.

    And insisting on ruthless standardization that allowed true learning-by-doing, with his teams completing several reactors a year for more than a decade.

    His fleet provides 70% of French electricity, and but for the sabotage by his weak, stupid successors inside and outside French government, it should be making half again as much electricity as the 56 reactors do today.

    Boiteux’s reactor fleet (plus a few more units after his retirement) cost about $150 billion. Compare this to Germany spending about $500 billion on their mess of an “energy transition” which requires them to keep almost all of their coal and gas plants in service.

    As a young man Marcel Boiteux refused to accept France’s defeat and at age 21 in 1942 as an elite university student he escaped Nazi-occupied France while escorting downed Allied pilots over the Pyrenees mountains to safety in Spain.

    Brass. Balls.

    This episode revealed the pattern for the rest of his life.

    After the war, he studied economics and wrote *the* foundational paper in electricity economics, on how to price electricity service in a way that covered system costs while being fair and sustainable.

    He completely understood liberal economics, and knew it did not apply to electricity grids and service. He built cheap power for all, then after his retirement watched as a bunch of pathetic hack economists broke the grid with idiotic “markets” that are failing all over the world.

    He rapidly rose in public service after university graduation, and after appointment to the head of Electricité de France, successfully built the most astonishing energy system in the history of the world, proving for all time that a country could truly rely on its own fleet of standardized nuclear reactors producing low-cost emissions-free energy.

    Anti-nuclear terrorists exploded a bomb outside the door of his family home in 1977 but he kept building.

    It must have been torture for this truly great man to watch twenty years of silly, unserious leaders damage and begin to destroy his beloved EDF and its fleet of reactors, leading France straight into its worst energy crisis since the oil crisis of 1973 that triggered Boiteux’s nuclear fleet construction in the first place.

    But he didn’t come up with the idea of a nuclear fleet powering a total electrification of the economy because an oil crisis hit. He was too prophetic to be a mere reactionary. Rather, he declared the slogan “All nuclear, all electric” months before the OPEC embargo hit in 1973.

    Marcel Boiteux died this week at the age of 101.

    71 year old alistair Stewart diagnosed with Vascular Dementia . Like so many I have been there with a relative through diagnosis to the End . He and His Family are now on the – often – long path downward .
    Methods of dealing with Vascular Dementia have improved quite rapidly from the time when I started to be a carer . That’s when I realised just how poor the UK State NHS can be – and that it is best avoided .
    Money talks – and decisions about care depend on your bank balance and how much support the patient gets .

    I reckon mr Stewart will be one of those fortunate to get the best care . But there are hundreds of thousands not getting anything like the support they deserve or have even paid for through the taxes as life long UK citizens . And that’s wrong – and another indication as to why the blue labour government deserves to be destroyed along with its ‘ false ‘Conservative ‘ party .
    Meanwhile let’s hope mr Stewart can use his position to inform more people of this terminal illness and what it amounts to …. Very sad

      I looked up Morocco – which is the current ‘victim of choice ‘. It is 99% Muslim . The Christian’s and the Jews are dead or left .

      It’s the 30th worst place in the world to be a Christian . I’m sure there will be no need for one of those corrupt crowdfunding schemes because either Middle East Islamic oil or china will buy the country …. One for Allah ( no pictures please )


    • Sluff says:

      I share your experience though in my case we did get to the ‘end’ and very gruesome those last months were.

      But I struggle with the concept of what we deserve because we have paid our taxes.

      Good care is in the region of £60,000 per year. Three years care, £180,000. How much tax do we pay in our working lives?
      Life expectancy generally rose at the rate of 3 years every 10 before covid. That’s a heck of a lot of unfunded extra state pension, and the liability increases every year with the triple lock.

      It’s totally unaffordable based on current revenue in my opinion. Another arrangement is required.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Sluff – just basic stuff eg

        GP unwilling to visit bedridden patient
        No -or rare – District Nurses
        15 minute visits by different care assistants few speaking English
        Absent social services
        Severely limited physios who refused to visit
        Failure to control bed sores
        Crap nuitritionalists
        Inability to administer adequate pain control
        Crap End of Life support –

        I’m a believer that is you paid in during your life – you deserve a lot more than the parasites who make no contributions

        I agree that different arrangements are necessary – and will be necessary – whether people want it or not . Personally – I’d scrap the NHS and start again with the medical mafia – but my views are far too extreme for our times .

        However – as living standards – public service standards rapidly drop even more in the next few years – people are going to suffer unless they look after themselves …..

        Don’t forget to clap
