    When Theresa May became prime minister in July 2016, she promised to stand up for working families who were ‘just about managing’. The so-called ‘JAMs’ are people from working families who worry about paying their mortgage, the cost of living and getting their kids into a good school.7 Jun 2019

    Images of men released in Brixton stabbing appeal

    lol – The BBC aren’t much help in the appeal for witnesses who saw a man who murdered another man by stabbing him in plain daylight. I for one never saw this story on the UK front page.

    Why did they just bury it to regions do I hear you ask ?.
    You know why of course.


    The agenda is far more important to the BBC than anybodies life.

    And why did they wait a week to release it ?.

    Columbia Threadneedle’s analysis suggests that the pace of bond sales is 70% faster than that of the U.S. Federal Reserve and around twice the rate of the European Central Bank.

    “It’s unclear to us why the Bank has been so hasty. The fast pace of these sales has been pushing down on gilt prices, it’s been worsening the losses for the taxpayer, and worse, it crystallizes what would have been paper losses into a drain that the U.K. Treasury has to make good,” Mahon said.

    “Selling bonds on this scale has never been done before, nor has it been tried when bond markets have had to digest the ramifications of both high inflation and substantial rate hikes,” he said in a video blog last week.

    The BOE is crystallizing massive losses as a result of the sales, which are being backstopped by the U.K. Treasury. In late July, the central bank estimated that it would require the Treasury to indemnify £150 billion ($189 billion) of losses on its asset purchase facility (APF).

    I have to say that whilst I amnn always in favour of the UK government saving money or spending less, I cannot accept these greedy evil Socialist Tories attacking those on sickness or disability benefit, whilst they choose to house illegal migrants in luxury accommodation, and pay their mates masssive amounts during covid, give billions to Ukraine, and then bail out the bankers.

    This is just not right, the poor should not have the pittance they receive cut so the rich can receive tax cuts in the run up to an election.

    Britain is in a real Socialist mess brought about by corrupt Socialism, people in power raking off huge sums from the taxpayer and no one asking questions about it.

    Here’s anm enigmatic tale which clearly has more to it which we are not being told for some strange reason.

    It concerns a BBC personality, ex public schoolboy and Labour party councillor Matty Lock who has sadly died aged just 19 years old.

    He appears a typical BBC type white male privately educated and Socialist to the core. Several facts are reported about him, including the rather expensive public school he attended and his love of gadgets, but what is not reported is the cause of death which is extremely strange.

    Normally if someone is ill or suffers some sudden fatal medical episode it is no issue to report it, so clearly something untoward must have happened.

    The condolences must obviously lie with his family but it is an odd case which clearly has a lot more to come out.

    RuPaul’s Drag Race UK series 5 cast: Meet the queens battling it out for the crown
    The wait is over: RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is back, with a cast of delectable queens ready to bring sweet surprises to BBC Three.

    Samuel Spencer
    11 September 2023



    Though Aitkenhead notes that RuPaul picked his next words “carefully,” his answer wound its way to saying that he “probably” wouldn’t have admitted a transgender woman like Peppermint — an iconic New York City performer who made the finals in season nine after coming out as trans on the show — if she had already started gender-affirming surgery.

    Sunday BBC local newsPR had a very short item
    “local councillor says onshore wind is a bad thing for Lincolnshire”

    Then a long elaborate item “People have a long history of taking the knee”
    … That sounds like a huge distortion of history.


  8. JohnC says:

    Just browsing to see what I could learn about the murder of Shakira Spencer (in London) and stumbled across this:

    Most Wanted

    So from the 14 people who are ‘Most Wanted’ in London, 12 are BAME !!.

    In West Yorkshire (Manchester) and in the Midlands (Birmingham) it’s 6 out of 7 in both.

    Our 3 major cities.

    This is an appalling statistic. Yet nobody ever mentions it as a problem. Least of all the BBC who are totally Londoncentric.

    Same as how many males who murder others and are ‘too young to be legally identified’ are almost always black.

    It’s this kind of left-wing agenda-based hypocrisy and gross double standards which mean we cannot trust anything at all the BBC tell us as being the whole truth.

    Channel 4 news had a long item with an interview with an illegal immigrant whining about conditions on the barge.

    He had his back to the camera throughout, not sure why as who the hell could identify any immigrants?

    Basically, he likened conditions to 18th century prison ships and claimed being on the ship was affecting his mental health.

    He had so bloody obviously been coached by the get rich quick weasel immigration crash for cash level pseudo lawyers that it was painful to watch.

    Two points, if the shit hole he left was so bad, how in gods name can a free room, meals and board on a ship with Wi-Fi, gyms, canteens etc, and free access to come and go as you like possibly be worse?

    The C4 lady sucked it up like a hoover, pained, sympathetic expressions etc.

    We are being taken for fools in this country and there are very few politicians who dare to come out and say it and get these greedy demanding leeches out of our country ASAP which is what needs to happen in the name of fair play.

It’s the likes of him that makes most mildly unassuming Brits racist against tw..ts like him. We’re so awful but he’s still here, no doubt pulling benefits and GBN fees while posing as an author.

    shocker and this isn’t being reported in any of the media. so many people are going to be blindsided when it all goes boom.

    Worse though are the loons not realising EU land is as bad as it is and believing it’s the UK suffering on its own as a result of Brexit because the media isn’t reporting the appalling economic news from there.

      “Make a hole there”. Addressed to a group of people normally in a line. An Americanism/military expression simply relating to make room for someone else to join the line/group. The reality of the photo is, blacks constitute 50% of those chosen to display by the BBC whereas, they constitute no more than 3/4% of the population.

      BBC using a JCB to, ‘make a hole’.

    The rotten BBC threw everything they could against Cliff Richard on unproven sex slurs.

    The BBC always stand behind their own and demonstrating they can try to make you or break you depending on whether they agree or not with your lifestyle.

    Rotten to the core!

    North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is visiting Russia at Vladimir Putin’s invitation.
    Looks like by train.
    Bizarrely the legendary BBC Verify team is on the case, bless them… challenging themselves to try and follow his locomotive as it chugs along. 🚂

    “Due to North Korea’s secretive nature, tracking the train is very difficult.

    The BBC Verify team is monitoring satellite images of the route for signs of the train, with the most likely point to see it as it prepares to enter Russia.

    As we explained in our earlier post, Kim’s train will need to change its wheels at the North Korean border station of Tumangang – so it can run on Russia’s tracks.
    Based on the speed of the train and the distance it needs to travel, we believe Kim’s train could arrive at the border tomorrow morning.

    If this turns out to be correct, it is possible BBC Verify will obtain a satellite image of the train as its wheels are being replaced.

    However, the timing will be down to luck.

    If the train is delayed, the moment could be missed.

    Another factor is the weather. Satellite images are taken from space and if the weather is cloudy the ground can be completely obscured.
    We will be keeping our fingers crossed.”

      Hello Eddy

      Hope this isn’t a non-green compliant diesel train, maybe the likes of the bbc could do a report on it


    • JohnC says:

      They are desperately trying to establish ‘BBC Verify’ as the oracle of truth and fact for all news. No doubt they will then use it when it suits for their agenda-topics such as anything to do with Trump.

      Unfortunately the extreme low-grade of the staff they have ended up with due all the racist and sexist quotas, they have made the whole thing into an amateur sixth form school project.

      The worst part is that these kidults have no clue what idiots they are making themselves look.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Surely the BBC will be impressed that Kim chose the environmentally friendly train over the CO2 spewing aircraft. If only the other world leaders and environmental evangelicals followed his example.

            That’s why we in Blighty are ‘sleepwalking’ into self destruction.


            • Solomon Grundy says:


              First past the post voting means only one of two political parties ever achieves power.

              For a protest party to get even a single seat in parliament will only happen if the MP was previously elected as a member of the main parties.

              The Wikipedia page for UKIP has:

              “UKIP gained its first MP when Conservative defector Douglas Carswell won the seat of Clacton during an October 2014 by-election.[80][81] In November fellow Conservative defector Mark Reckless became UKIP’s second MP in a Rochester and Strood by-election.[82][83] In the 2015 general election, UKIP secured over 3.8 million votes (12.6% of the total), replacing the Liberal Democrats as the third most popular party, but only secured one seat,[84] with Carswell retaining his seat and Reckless losing his.[85][86]”

              In the very unlikely scenario of Reclaim, Reform or UKIP getting a couple of seats, how will these MPs implement their manifestos? (And before you ask, I have not read any manifestos of any party and have no inclination to do so.)

              I’m not ‘sleepwalking’ into self destruction. I’m wide awake.


              • taffman says:

    Female surgeons sexually assaulted while operating

    Just look at this article. It’s pure misandry. I’m not saying the women are liars – but the article is chock full of totally unproven accusations presented as facts.

    And the reporter actually puts his own picture in it again !. Another BBC narcissist. But look at him : even more of a boring looking geography-teacher Lefty than the one I put up the other day:

    ‘Health correspondent James Gallagher speaking to “Anne” who was subjected to non-consensual sex by a senior surgeon when she was a trainee’

    This ‘Anne’ had let the surgeon walk her home then clearly took him in to her room – but the BBC omit telling us that bit. We have to infer it.

    But reading it more carefully, we discover:

    ‘There is a nervousness to talk openly. Judith asked that we use only her first name. She is now an experienced and talented consultant surgeon.’

    So how long ago was this ?. 10 years ? 20 years ?. The BBC write it as if it just happened. Not sure who told the BBC she is ‘talented’ – they clearly added that bit themselves.

    ‘Registered surgeons – men and women – were invited to take part completely anonymously and 1,434 responded. Half were women:’

    These voluntary surveys are absolutely flawed : those who were abused in some way are far, far more likely to respond.

    And as I see this report is by academics, I always look to see if we are given specific names for contact details. Because that always means the whole thing is looking for funding. And there they are:

    ‘Prof Carrie Newlands, consultant surgeon from the University of Surrey.’

    ‘said Dr Christopher Begeny, from the University of Exeter.’

    And take a look at the other contributor, ‘The Working Party on Sexual Misconduct in Surgery (WPSMS)’

    13 members. All women.

    This ‘report’ is more like an episode of Panorama. Total lop-sided misandry.


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      Strikes me as one of the easier BBC ‘issues’ to resolve.

      I’m pretty certain all operating theatres are rigged with CCTV these days, as a precaution against being sued by patients/patients’ relations. If they aren’t they really ought to be, and it is not as if CCTV systems aren’t dirt cheap and easy to install – every shop in the country has at least half a dozen cameras to watch the shoplifters helping themselves (not that they can do anything about it, and the police don’t give a toss, CCTV evidence, or not).

      “So, Ms Boobarella, when exactly did Mr Gropy touch you inappropriately?”

      “It was immediately after he removed Mr… sorry I mean Ms Smith’s testicles, he turned and wiped his bloody hands on my breasts.”

      “Let’s take a look at the footage, shall we….”

      Solved. Next…

      • JohnC says:

        G, I think the definition of ‘sexual assault’ these people use these days will be any ‘unauthorised’ contact at all.

        The Left keep changing the definition of words so they cover things way beyond what their literal meaning is.

    Time to put this one to bed edition

    In soap news The Sun shouts at readers: Brian: I’m Out Of Enders… Telly favourite Brian Conley has abruptly quit East Enders… A row with the BBC soap’s executives has led to his exit

    Comic Brian Conley was fomerly best known for ITV’s The Brian Connelly Show, a popular sketch series featuring, among other comedy characters, his favourite creations: Nick Frisbee and Larry The Loafer, a send up of the BBC’s Gordon the Gopher, sidekick to Phillip Schofield on the programme The Broom Cupboard – this is admittedly old news and it’s been quite some time now since our Philip has come out of that broom cupboard.

    But I digress. Conley’s character Nick Frisby wasn’t at all suited for children’s television presenting, most notably because of the constant pain he caused Larry by hitting him with a club, leaving him shaking and squeaking in pain. When the audience “aww”ed, Nick would impatiently reply “It’s A Puppet!”, which became Conley’s trademark crowd pleasing catchphrase.

    Which segueways nicely to…

    President Biden, 80, in Hanoi where his press secretary cut him off mid-sentence and jazz music interrupted a rambling speech in which he made apparently mistaken reference to a John Wayne film (Times) – He’s A Puppet!

    This is significant. A frontpage of the Times of London suddenly makes a full-frontal attack on the mental competency of the Democrat president. Since the 2019 campaign the mainstream corporate media in the English speaking world have covered for the geriatric Biden’s obvious and increasing demetia.

    Since we’re featuring comic catchphrases…

    …his press secretary cut him off mid-sentence and jazz music… “Nice!”

    We recall that Fast Show comedy sketch Jazz Club presenter with the beatnik bowlcut hairdo. John Thompson who played the Jazz Club presenter as a cross between Whispering Bob Harris and Roger Moore was uniformly enraptured by every discordant racket performed on the show and in every cut away from the band would exclaim: ‘Nice!’ or ‘Grrrrreat’

    The president, 80, visited Vietnam as he circumnavigates the globe in just five days. And his 26-minute press conference, which started an hour late, featured a string of strange incidents. At one point he said: “I’m just following my orders here”… Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre then stepped in and said: “Thank you everybody. This ends the press conference.” But some would say the damage had already been done by this point. (Daily Express)

    Now our Joe Biden has made his bid for a comedy catchphrase of his own: “‘I tell you what, I don’t know about you, but I’m going to go to bed.”

    To our own Basil Fawlty and his infamous line: “Whatever you do, don’t mention the war!”

    MPs told: Don’t Mention The ‘Spy’ (Daily Mail)

    Well, our media has mentioned it once – but we think they’ve got away with it: Britain ‘cannot afford to cut ties with China’, despite spying row (Telegraph)

    Which is a fascinating insight into how come we’re presently at war with Russia – afterall, we’ve made China just too economically important to the west: BMW delivers boost to car industry with Mini cash… £600mn to produce the electric Mini in Oxford… based on a system developed by BMW and China’s Great Wall Motor… the German owner plans to import batteries from Europe or China (FT) – I’m guessing, in the event, it will be the latter.

    The UK car industry has seen output fall 40 per cent since the pandemic ( FT )

    Or, more accurately : The UK car industry has seen output fall 40 per cent since the pandemic Lockdown (Mr AsI’s edit )

    Speaking of significant mainstream frontpage policy u-turns – the Rishi Sunak loyalist Daily Express has quietly run down the Ukraine flag on the masthead and on Rishi’s failing small boats policy has exposed how French police are taking the piss: Britain’s deal with France to end Channel crossings can never achieve its aims… Party time: Off-duty French police officers drinking at the Be Happy bar in Calais

    Pay the French – failure. Rwanda – failure. Barges – failure. We wonder whether Rishi has any other distraction tricks left up his sleeve? Sleeve… La Manche…? Nevermind.

    The media do love a survey. Our NHS is so busy doing surveys it’s a wonder the medics working there have any time left to treat the patients: One in three medical students plan to quit the NHS… the largest survey of its kind shows (Guardian); One in six who see GP ‘don’t need to be there’ (Telegraph); 1 in 3 female surgeons assaulted by a colleague… The study, the largest of its kind… anonymous online survey… (Times)

    Rubiales departure a win for Spain’s women’s team (BBC) – one can’t help but reflect this ‘victory’ is somewhat akin to a football club side winning the Charity Shield as a nice little token addition to add to the trophy cabinet alongside their FA Cup or League victory.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – radical feminist politics is not a bug of the ladies soccer game – it’s a feature.

    So we have supposedly collapsing school buildings – and then we have actual collapses: Morocco earthquake: ‘We need help from whomever will give it’ (BBC); Wilko to close remaining 300 stores with 12,500 job losses as rescue fails… Biggest collapse since Debenhams (FT)

            Easy. Another test of faith, Allah gave his followers oil, but first he let the kafirs discover it and attempt to horde it for themselves, so that the faithful could prove their devotion by defeating the kafir, and earn their right to paradise in the process.

            Allah likes to test his people, but promises eternal bliss for those who fall fighting for him and the faith.

            From what I’ve read of it, that is a pretty large part of what the koran says. Personally, I have nothing at all against Muslims, but it should be recognised that in its pure form, Islam is not a religion which is prepared to compromise, you’re either a member of the faith, pay a tribute tax to those who are, or are the enemy to be destroyed – if you don’t like it, then you have three options: convert, pay up, or die.

    Kim Jong Un enters Russia in bulletproof train for Putin talks

    Why on earth does this need a ‘live update’ ?

    I think the BBC have realised how useful this trick is for agenda topics against the Tories and Trump so they have set up a dedicated team to be ready whenever the chance arises. And they have to been given something to do.

    One thing is for sure : the USA (and us) are driving China, Russia and North Korea closer together. Not content with splitting our own society down the middle, they are now doing the same to the whole world.

    What could possibly go wrong ?.

      Hello JohnC

      The bbc feels left out

      “Destination unclear as Kim enters Russia

      Steve Rosenberg

      BBC Russia editor

      When a world leader goes abroad, the visit is normally announced well in advance. Journalists usually know when, where, what is going to be happening.

      But “normally” doesn’t seem to apply to Kim Jong Un.

      Moscow and Pyongyang only confirmed his Russia visit yesterday – but without mentioning where exactly he’s heading, or where his talks with President Putin will be held.

      The initial rumour was Vladivostok. It made sense. That’s where Vladimir Putin is right now for the Eastern Economic Forum. It’s also where Kim Jong Un came in 2019.

      But state TV in the Russian far east has reported that Kim’s train has left Ussuriysk in the direction of Khabarovsk. A different direction!

      In short: final destination still unclear.”

    Incredible moment White House staff abruptly end Biden’s rambling Vietnam press conference mid-sentence and cut his mic

    This is a big story and quite disturbing to watch this man who has a huge budget which he can personally dish out to anyone in Ukraine he likes without any checks or balances.

    It proves beyond any doubt that the President is not in charge. And it proves the President is simply incapable of being allowed to speak without careful supervision – and someone behind the scenes has the power to cut him off instantly if they see fit.

    It’s reported in many places – but as usual it is NOT reported by the ‘impartial and unbiased’ BBC. Absolutely disgraceful.

    As always, I can’t begin to imagine what a big story the BBC and MSM would make this if it were Trump.

      Democracy is messy – let’s end democracy……

      “We lost our minds.” That unforgiving assessment is how a former government official who had one of the most important jobs in Britain, sums up the huge political turbulence that engulfed the UK between 2016 and 2022. It was, as she sees it, a collective meltdown in a country previously known for stability.

      That period began with a referendum that tore up the status quo that had governed the country for 40 years and ended with the departure of the fourth prime minister in six years. It included two general elections and a global pandemic that pushed the machinery of government to the edge.

    “Vigilantes replace the Police”.

    Slipping inexorably in that direction. Inexorably. Got to be.

    About 0745 on ‘Toady’ we heard from a CEO of a leading High Street chain. No new ‘dance steps’ here though. Moaning about the growing threats from gangs of feral youths simply and blatantly stealing in groups. Next step? Knifings if any employee attempts to intervene. We’ve all seen the videos on YT. Predominantly black youth but, hush hush don’t mention that ! CEO’s solution? Pay the Police £600,000 (I hope I’ve got that right – don’t wish to provoke the resident Troll who patrols the postings seeking minor inaccuracies to highlight his superiority) to do what they should be doing in any event.

    Here’s a thought though. The Police have, no doubt, been warned about appearing racist in any way. So that’s probably the main reason they are not interested in dealing with basic street crimes like theft. So maybe, CEO lady should reconsider hiring a vigilante group other than one which has no incentive to become the next ‘intrinsic’ ‘deep seated’ racist group.

    I see it’s surgeons now who must be dismantled on account of a toxic culture. Another day, another institution to subvert. Sigh. Meanwhile BBC report that Dave and Central Cee’s track has been named UK song of summer 2023. Please don’t listen to it (I did). A sample of lyrics:

    “Now this gyal wan’ me in her uterus, fuck it, I’m rich, let’s do it (Fuck it)
    I love chillin′ with broke bitches, man book one flight, and they’re all impressed (alright)
    I′m in the G63, the car hug me like a friend through twist and turns
    Man livin’ for nyash and dyin′ for nyash
    It’s fucked, don′t know which one’s worse, I’m fucked”

    The BBC says the song is about “partying with plenty of girls”… and is “a playful, knowing track that indulges in rap clichés while acknowledging their absurdity.” Just cliches, a bit of summer fun — not like the “kiss that shook global football” which required the usual media onslaught to get a toxic white man sacked. That wasn’t playful, it was abuse, and thank god he could now face criminal charges and up to 4yrs in prison. Compare the fawning attitude towards misogyny in black culture with the puritanical hysteria when whitey steps over the line.

    If I was Rubiales’ advisor I’d have told him to black up and make a drill record about his kiss, the BBC would be all over that.

    BBC found AXE-ing ‘expensive’ local radio…
    “An outgoing BBC radio host angrily hit out at the organisation during her last live broadcast, labelling the Corporation as “ageist and ablesist”. BBC Radio Norfolk host Sophie Little presented her radio show Treasure Quest for the last time on Sunday after the show was axed after 15 years… “The BBC’s mission, as defined by Royal Charter, is to act in the public interest, serving all audiences…” she said.

    And she was also ‘edited out’ of her own BBC ‘podcast’! No rants allowed at the BBC…!


    But she seems to not know that the ‘official’ planned policy of the BBC is to fixate on TV rather than the tail pipe local radio. This is because they cannot claim ‘more money’ for radio as its ‘included’ in the TV license and they need every penny…

    They have to get the ‘message’ across. Save the planet, Drugs are ‘really’ good for you, particularly if your a child and ‘TRANS’, castration and mutilation is ‘popular’ etc.

    Meanwhile at BBC towers other favoured Radio 2 get the big BUZZ (on ‘approved’ recreational drugs as used by Vets on race Horses). I read in today’s Daily Mail.

    BBC Radio 2 presenter Michelle Visage has revealed that her husband and daughter have been undergoing regular ‘Ketamine therapy’, using horse tranquilisers., a ‘popular’ illegal drug for ‘ravers. The Former Strictly Come dancing judge (age 54) is married to David Case. She goes on to recommend the ‘treatment’ to the former ‘RuPaul Drag Race ‘Artiste’ (also on BBC) – explains the treatment to avoid ‘depression’ (since leaving the EU no doubt). ‘Its very trendy in LA’, she explains and that she ‘never takes drugs’ (no doubt just the odd ‘snort’ of Cocaine, Cannabis Oil and Horse tranqilisers), and its a ‘game changer’, she says, as its ‘so good’.

    Following on from my comment last week about when a politcal article is opened for comment, all of a sudden it is flooded with similar child-like spiteful leftists who I am now convinced are a troll famr due to the similarity of them all.

    Here’s the 3rd from top comment:

    ‘Is anyone really surprised that the most corrupt and lawless government in British history is “once again” breaking the law?

    As for the “regulators”… their only purpose it seems, is to increase profits for these criminal water companies.

      And this one from a ‘normal’ spiteful Lefty:

      ‘And while you’re all distracted about the triple lock, you’ll all be working until your 75 if the Tory’s get into power again.’ gets 134 upticks to 131 downticks. Totally different from the other topic.

    Climate change could cause Parliament or the US Congress to catch fire. If so, then there are plans to suspend the constitution and declare a ‘state of emergency’ suspending all civil liberties, including habeas corpus, freedom of expression, freedom of speech, the right of free association and public assembly. The climate emergency will require the passage of an ‘Enabling Act’ to enable the government to ban populist movements such as democracy, ‘Brexit’ and ‘Make America Great Again’. Opponents of the ‘Enabling Act’ will be have their bank accounts suspended until they are arrested and imprisoned for believing in conspiracy theories about the cause of the fire.

      A very interesting video which describes it as it actually is.

      What kept coming into my mind as I watched it was the cool, common sense and information-based speech by the senator compared to the absolute meaningless tosh we get from the BBC along with the incredibly child-like, spiteful comments and ridiculous upticks we see in the inevitable HYS they open up for it.

      Ukraine is lies on a massive scale. I would not have believed it was possible in modern times if I hadn’t witnessed it.

      The HYS are worth reading to see what happens to anyone who does not join in calling Putin ‘Putrid’ or implying all Russians are ‘orcs’ : they are visciously attacked by the mob and denounced as Russian trolls. This happens in the DT comments exactly the same. In their world, if you don’t support the USA/Ukraine then you must support Russia. I don’t support either – but I think the USA carry the most blame for starting it.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        I don’t agree absolutely with everything this senator said (I feel Putin brought some of the actions of the West upon himself, rather than them all being a result of American paranoia and greed), but I appreciate that most of what he said is 100% factually correct, and that he presented a clear and concise argument in an honest and straightforward manner.

        To my thinking, he is 100% correct in stating that this proxy war in the Ukraine (it IS THE Ukraine) is a waste of resources and human life, and we should, from the start, have been angling for a negotiated settlement. This would, obviously, involve some kind of compromise with Putin, and giving him at least some of what he wants, some of which, logically should belong to Russia anyway (and no, I am not a Russian bot, or Putin lover!)

        This is how diplomacy OUGHT to be carried out… but, isn’t.

        This is how politics OUGHT to be sorted…. but, isn’t.

        This is how news OUGHT to be presented…. but, isn’t.

        This is how political documentaries OUGHT to be presented… but, aren’t.

        This man, or one like him should be in the White House, NOT the senile fool who currently is.

    TWatO Watch #1 – A NHS nurse with three jobs! I wonder what she earns?

    Unfortunately Sarah did not ask. Time is long overdue for BBC presenters and for BBC journalists to become a whole lot more curious instead of putting up ‘vox pops’ that may be spinning a yarn. For example, iirc, a newly qualified nurse working in the NHS is on about the average wage for the UK. Let us assume this woman is not working three full-time jobs (near impossible) although in one job I had, I got to see time sheets for colleagues and some Managers and Senior Managers, in certain specific circumstances would at month end have done the equivalent of working two jobs.

    So let us assume this nurse does a thirty-five or forty hour week for the NHS and two part-time jobs of up to fifteen or seventeen hours each. She will be paid by the taxpayer about £35,000 (she didn’t sound very young) for the nursing job and will earn £7,500 to £8,500 for her two other jobs each year. Let us assume an income of £50,000 a year. A little bit more and you start to bump into higher rates of Income Tax.

    Questions Sarah could and should have asked:
    Does she work for the NHS in London? (Does she get a London weighting to her NHS pay?)
    Does she live in London?
    Does she have a mortgage on a property?
    Is she married?
    Does she have children?
    If she and her husband are separated, does her husband support her and any children?

    I suspect this interview may have been a little misleading but it had some immediate hilarious consequences.

          I met a OAP today who has £100/day spending money
          and that is largely due to his long dead wife who was an NHS nurse
          the system for some means the pension simply diverts to a living spouse.
          Before tax his pensions are £50K plus


    • Fedup2 says:

      I did notice the ‘3 jobs ‘ nurse ….. and the absence of inquiry into exactly what these were . I guess 1 might be as an ‘agency ‘ nurse doing the same job in the same hospital for more pay and caring even less – in the remaining time I thought she might be on a union job and probably in excess of £80 k – an MP ?

      As for the ‘triple lock ‘ I think the term ‘triple ‘ and ‘lock’ are about to develop an alternative new meaning …

      Don’t forget to clap

    TWatO Watch #2 – Oooops! The BBC really need to remember something.

    Such as the previous item where a NHS nurse with two additional jobs could not afford the-cost-of-living-crisis that the BBC and the Labour Party have invented for us. Suddenly the discussion moved on to the Triple Lock for the State Pension. Sarah and her Editors and researchers really should have changed the running order. Apparently William Hague, a failed Conservative Party leader, has written a newspaper article for, I think, the Times on the future unaffordability of the State Pension.

    Rishi Sunak, a currently successful Conservative Party leader (he may not be, come 2025) has committed his Government to the State Pension Triple Lock in the summer just past. I have to declare an interest here: as an OAP I am grateful for any increase in the State Pension, especially the effects of the Triple Lock. But in Sarah’s discussion with Mel Stride MP, the Work and Pensions Minister, Sarah was determined to say that the Triple Lock was unfair on younger generations because of its unaffordability and the fact they would be funding it. At which point Sarah neatly pulled the BBC carpet in the TWatO studio from under her feet and chair and promptly rolled herself up in it by observing that the Triple Lock is high right now because of the bonus that NHS nurses have received to end their strike.

    House of Representatives to open Biden impeachment inquiry

    Hooray. A definite contender for a front-page ‘Live Update’ with a different headline every day.

    Mind you, so was the massive EU corruption case ‘Qatargate’ and the BBC buried that immediately.

    Here’s where that is now:

    Qatargate: Uncertainty over continuation of investigation

    ‘he threat seems real. So much so that, on September 4, Frédéric van Leeuw, head of the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office, commented very explicitly on the situation. “In 10 years, I’ve never seen so much pressure on a case,” said the senior judge. “There are leaks everywhere, foreign judges contacting us and sometimes even wanting to interfere in the investigation. There are also attacks against [the first] investigating judge and his family, which I think is a disgrace.” Van Leeuw also referred to bots used for smear campaigns on the internet and “financed by states, including those targeted or cited in this case.”‘

    Nothing whatsoever about it on the BBC.


    • JohnC says:

      They have indeed opened a ‘Live Update’ on the topic – and look what they have written right at the top:

      ”Unserious people’ – Senator hits out at inquiry

      Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, dismissed the impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, saying House Republicans were opening the probe “even though they admit they have no reason to open an impeachment inquiry”.

      Republican-led inquiries into President Biden have not found any concrete evidence of his misconduct.’

      How do the BBC know they haven’t found any concrete evidence ?. That part is given as fact : not as what the senator said.

      Completely opposite tone to their Trump articles as of course it was 100% certain it would be. I recall the Democrats had SIX committees at one time – all of which were just searching for a reason to impeach Trump. I didn’t find that out from the BBC.
