Midweek 13th September 2023

This thread covers the 15th of September – which I’m sure the BBC would like British People to Forget ,,, and if you don’t know what 15th September commemorates – the wokes have succeeded … lest we forget .

    This cannot be true- can it? A Brummie acquaintance of mine with friends and family in that fine city has just told me that parts of Birmingham are in lockdown with our dinghy invaders being used to stop people moving about. Nothing about it on the BBC of course. Is he mad? Am I mad for listening to him? It sounds very far fetched to me but I don’t know what’s happening to this country any more.

      Oh well … we all have to make room.

      Plans to relocate the grave of a dog which was a mascot to the Dambusters have been refused by councillors.

      The 617 Squadron’s mascot, a black Labrador, belonged to commanding officer Guy Gibson and died on the day of the raid on German dams in 1943.

      The RAF applied for planning permission to move the grave from RAF Scampton as the site is to be used to house asylum seekers from August.

      But councillors rejected the proposal at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

      About 100 people attended a West Lindsey District Council extraordinary planning meeting at Lincolnshire Showground to discuss the application.

      Not sure about the context you refer to. However, I referred to this possibility a month or two ago when I realised that the Government has this source of very impartial Malitia men (or as Farage describes: ‘young, fit, military age men’) on hand to step in to quell any rebellion.

    Helicopter heat signal found escaped killer, police say
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-us-canada-66800082

    What on Earth is going on with the BBC ?.

    Now they are running a ‘live update’ on a story that police in the USA have caught someone who escaped !!!. We even get:

    ‘He was finally ‘subdued’ after being bitten by a dog – they did not say where he was bitten.’

    ‘The escapee liked to travel through creek beds, he liked other paths of least resistance such wood lines, power lines and gas lines, Bivens says.’

    “That’s fairly normal, no-one wants to have to force their way through heavy underbrush.’

    I am genuinely stunned. Why are the BBC using their funding to cover stories like this as if they are major world events which would be insignificant in THIS country, never mind over in the vastness of the USA.

    Meanwhile someone else was stabbed and murdered in Croydon, the police are appealing for witnesses and the BBC haven’t even reported it. We know why of course.

    https://news.met.police.uk/news/detectives-urge-witnesses-to-come-forward-as-murder-investigation-launched-in-croydon-472159

    What complete cretin is in charge for what we see on the front page of the taxpayer funded BBC ?. He/She/It should be immediately sacked.

          What do you reckon that they’re putting out all these bizarre failings of Biden now, so that there might just be a way in the US constitution to get him to lie down somewhere, get Kamilla in the WH, but say they need a cabal of advisors to ‘continue’?

          Cue Bamalam and even a Clinton or two – possible a Kennedy as well to appease the red-necks!

          There must be some way these ‘democrats’ can ensure that Donald Trump doesn’t just waltz in next year, so if anyone has a superior knwledge of the US ‘constitution’, perhaps they could let us know how and when this would happen!

          I smell a whole coven of rats here…

          The silence of the BBC (and by arse-cheek extension, I presume The Guardian) for anything negative about Bidens mental health is the most extreme of politically-biased double standards and I really hope their silence comes back to bite them. The good thing about it now is that it is so clear to everyone, their refusal to report it really stands out.

          Look what they wrote about Trump – and ALL of it is just rumour:

          Trump’s mental health and why people are discussing it
          https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-42580762

          ‘It is a question that has dogged Donald Trump – fairly or otherwise – since he was elected president: is he mentally fit for office?’

          ‘The question has been raised again by the release of a new book by New York journalist Michael Wolff, which chronicles the first year of the Trump White House.’

          ‘But the president’s manner and speaking style have led to armchair diagnoses of a host of ailments, from Alzheimer’s to narcissistic personality disorder – a controversial practice that has divided the medical profession.’

          Whereas with Biden there is lots of evidence of his decline and all they do is edit it out.

          I suspect his mental state will be used by Obama as a way to take him out of the running next year so a more reliable puppet can be installed.

            Naturally, all this is completely ignored by the Beebonics, who choose, obviously using CNN’s stuff, to get Romney’s views, which count for very little these days anyway!

    The BBC…dangerous scumbags.

    This is their headline….

    ‘Peckham: Man interviewed by Met Police after shop restraint’

    And yet who was actually arrested for a violent attack?….

    ‘A 31-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assault on Tuesday and later released on bail.’

    Why is the headline not about the woman rather than the man who was merely questioned?….oh, of course, she’s black.

    Watch the video the BBC adds to the report…..not at all the full story…it just looks like the man is attacking her…

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-66790189

    The reality, and other videos show it, is that she attacked him repeatedly before he was forced to defend himself…by restraining her…not hitting her.

    The BBC naturally gives a platform to the race grifters…..who are the cause of so many of the problems…..

    ‘Marlon Kameka, a 40-year-old artist and youth worker, told BBC London: “There’s a hierarchy in this country and, unfortunately, black women are always at the bottom of the hierarchy.

    “I’m fed up with being on the street because I’ve seen a video of a black woman being abused by a man.

    “The sad fact is, whenever I open social media, I should be prepared to see some kind of abuses being inflicted on a black person.

    “I’m here not to speak up for myself, but to speak up for the black women and the black children who are coming up after us. We can’t be scared to raise our voice because of what might happen.”‘

    Why is the BBC promoting the race grifters’ dangerous messages, why is the BBC so intent on sowing hate and division by its toxic reporting?

      A lot of talking. A lot of valid points yet neither of them went anywhere near the elephant in the room.

      That it is the black people who are causing all this trouble.

      THIS is precisely what taking the knee to BLM and appeasing them all along the way leads to. They think they are untouchable and can do what they like.

      How long will it be before I see anything in our media making that link ?.

      Show the protestors the real video on a large screen. Give them 10 minutes to go home. Then go in with the tear gas.

    Ha…BBC not so keen on an employee criticising the BBC but is more than happy for its employees to make highly personal, emotive, dishonest and highly toxic attacks on White people.

    No…you can’t do this…

    ‘BBC presenter uses last episode of her cancelled show to blast ‘ageist and ableist’ local radio cuts – before broadcaster CENSORS rant on its online catch-up service’
    ‘ BBC presenter used the last episode of her cancelled show to launch an excoriating attack on cuts to local radio that she branded ‘ageist [and] ableist’.

    Sophie Little tore into the Corporation for two minutes during the final airing of Treasure Quest, where listeners solve clues to help presenters locate treasure.

    The Radio Norfolk regular told fans: ‘Local radio is a vital public service. And it is my opinion that these drastic, sweeping cuts that are taking place to BBC local radio stations all across the country are not only detrimental to anyone that enjoys switching on their local station and hearing their favourite shows [but also] detrimental to the local communities who value and use it. ‘

    The BBC edits out her criticism.

    However you can do this…should you be black or Asian it’s perfectly fine to use the BBC to assail the listeners with your ranting racist lies….step forward Nihal and Clara Amfo who, when the sainted George Floyd died due to ingesting too many intoxicating substances, decided this was emblematic off the racism that stalks British streets, institutions and privileged white people’s minds.

    The BBC was so impressed they not only reported it o the news but promoted the rants over the course of the next few days…..no sneaky quiet editing out of their meltdowns.

    Just remember, you, Whitey, are the problem.

    ‘It’s sad,…I don’t want to be sad any more…tell me how we change…I’m sick of it, if you’re not sick of it I suggest you’re part of the problem too…it’s not acceptable to say ‘All lives matter’…black people are disproportionately suffering at the hands of the justice system in this country and if you can’t recognise that there is a problem.
    If you are white this effects you too…this hate, this division, this oppression undermines the future of our societies.’

    I was sat on my sofa, crying, angry, confused, and also knowing, stuck at the news…’
    Amfo’s voice broke as she struggled to continue with her speech. ‘…stuck at the news of yet another brutalised black body.

    ‘The subjugation of black people the world over is not new news to us, the institutions of white supremacy are not new to us’

    The BBC defends and promotes an ideology that grooms, sexually abuses and corrupts young vulnerable, suggestible minds of children….however should you speak out against the abuse they will cancel you….odd, especially as the BBC is so keen to criticise social media companies for not doing enough to protect and shield children from predators on the internet…..however, it’s OK if the predators are on the mainstream media, in our schools, museums and political establishment. People who were once considered freaks, perverts or mentally ill are now invited into schools to poison the minds of young children…and the BBC sees no problem….nor does it see a problem that parents are blocked from the process, nor does it see a problem that the medical profession is feeding youngsters dangerous drugs and carving them up to create a new them…something the children probably have no real understanding of but are persuaded, coaxed and cajolled into believing they have a problem and this is the solution…a solution that is more to do with making new recruits to the trans ‘community’ than actually helping the young child.

    ‘BBC axes Roisin Murphy songs, interviews and concert highlights from music programme with no explanation – after singer sparked trans row with puberty blocker comments’
    ‘Singer Roisin Murphy has been cancelled by the BBC after criticising puberty blockers.

    The star was due to be celebrated in ten hours of shows on the Corporation’s 6 Music channel next week but on Monday bosses decided to axe them – leaving staff at the station furious.

    Five hours of Ms Murphy’s songs, interviews and highlights of her concerts which were put together for a programme called the 6 Music Artist Collection was due to be aired between midnight and 5am next Monday, and again on Tuesday.

    However, they were suddenly cancelled earlier this week with no explanation given to production staff.

    Instead, new shows have been made to feature woke rapper Little Simz.’

    Listening today to Talk Radio (on Wednesday morning Mile Grayham show) about the UK CDU unit which was set up during COVID to counter any such ‘disinformation’ (such as anti-vaxers) is still (suprisingly) with us still today!
    As it was never closed down by our own government! Its still there, and by the BBC own admission (below) the BBC is still active with its own ‘disinformation’ unit.

    Hence:
    The BBC sent out a ‘press-release’ (puff piece).
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2023/08/06/marianna-spring-bbc-disinformation-correspondent/

    The BBC has revealed that Marianna Spring applied to head up the BBC own’ disinformation’ unit which was parody to the official COVID Medical ‘advisors’ task force….

    Officially all left wing medical establishment figures with links, not all medically qualified ‘influencers’ (Sociology, Psychology and immunology*) applied for big bucks. Very well paid advisors did earn a fortune (even if they were Marxists), as some claimed to be. They have to prove something that may or may not exist.

    *sponsored by big Pharma as ‘ready’ for any pandemic (US big pharma) See Fauci, Sorus, Gates and deniability that ‘research’ for ‘gain of function’ outlawed in UK and US but paid for ‘research; in WuHan labs in China. Then on ‘outbreak’, was blamed on a local meat market selling ‘bat meat’. Fauci was behind the ‘outbreak’ delivered drip-by-drip to the media as a ‘global’ emergency and blamed all on China. Was it or was it not? We shall never know, but those affected in China have ‘recovered’, so China has said. Odd that. No US or UK vaccines was delivered to China..!

    Talk Radio. Its own presenter Julie Hartley Brewer was also ‘black listed’ by the UK’s CDU unit as as a threat to the COVID consensus. Along with David Davis.

    Not that the BBC was asking any questions. Nobody was allowed to ask any questions. The FULL facts (as the BBC like to claim – were hidden from us), from all of us. Did Boris know it was all *bollocks*?, but he had no choice to follow the US leads… hard to believe how Neil Fergusson was employed when all his previous incorrect predictions on record were false. Chief predictor of doom. Proven idiot. But usefull idiot. Employed to prove the impossible. Create a national ‘emergency’ brief.

    Neil Fergusson. The usefull idiot.

    https://www.unz.com/runz/covid-deaths-and-vaxxing-deaths/

    Back then, we were all left in the dark. Only social media could find out what was happening elsewhere. And its was co-ordinated. Even when the WHO World Health Organisation claimed it was NOT the fault of China at all. The US did not want to admit they had paid for the research.

    David Davis pointed out that he was censored on you-tube for questioning the ‘origins’ of COVID. He has since been proved right. He claims that Neil Ferguson (the Government chief medical advisor) was never ‘right’ about anything, and has a history of ‘pandemic’ models that never worked – and since proved false (again).

    David Davis appeared on GB News on the Counter Disinformation unit
    https://www.daviddavismp.com/david-davis-mp-speaks-to-gb-news-about-the-counter-disinformation-unit-and-its-work/

    David Davis opposed to use of ID cards to prove ‘vaccination’ (as this was an EU requirement) and it did not prove that the vaccinations worked. He still questions the requirement for children to be vaccinated when they were clearly unaffected. We now learn that the unnecessary Vaccinations ’caused’ complications (death) in healthy in children.

    Marianna Spring had revealed in Daily Telegraph (below) last week about her involvement in the BBC ‘disinformation unit’ and the set up of BBC ‘Verify’ unit’ was extended. She claims she was involved in ‘take downs’ of misinformation that could have been ‘dangerous’ thinking by the public on COVID.

    She was caught as having ‘lied on her CV’ to the BBC
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2023/09/08/marianna-spring-bbc-journalist-disinformation-lied-on-cv/

    Frankly it makes no difference at the BBC, They all lie to be there.

    But the damage has already been done.
    From former articles in Times, Mail and Telegraph is was clear that the BBC has corprate style ‘close links’ to Google, Twitter and Facebook, she (Marianna Spring) could ‘take down’ anyone once she was so asked. She claims she was on first name terms with ‘Nick Clegg’ (she stated) at Facebook, as she headed the new BBC key ‘misinformation unit’ . She is a skilled player of expectations. She does not ask questions.

    Elon Musk has now ‘dismantled’ Twitter, and sacked, those who dominated the Left media empire of socialists arbitrarily on anyone who disagreed with the ‘consensus’ of the unqualified. The BBC had a big corporate accounts on Twitter. The BNNC encouraged all it ‘journo’ staff to ‘engage’ on Twitter as they could then distance itself from any claims or liability claims of being ‘false’. Again, such vapid ‘news and opinion’ would normally get you sacked, but at the BBC you get actively promoted. Its Russia in miniature.

    Clap for the NHS!
    At the time during COVID I had my suspicions when we were all asked to clap for the NHS, when it was clear to me that that LBC told us ‘on air’ that they had to comply with ’emergency measures’ a week earlier (and this included all radio/TV/Press) restrictions on what could be discussed. This meant that ‘Scientists and Doctors opposed to the COVID vaccinations, were soon banned on-air. This site could easily have been closed down, if they thought it was important enough.

    So that made ‘social media’ the next target. Google ‘down-graded’ web searches that placed COVID ‘official’ links – at top of all UK searches. The BBC claims Facebook was more than willing, (thanks to Nick Clegg), and we already know that Twitter was censoring any opposing views (on its own Twitter staff who claim censorship was totally normal and legal in the US).

    And we now know know the CIA were employed to cover up any lab leak.
    https://www.bignewsnetwork.com/news/273964523/cia-tried-to-cover-up-findings-that-covid-lab-leak-was-likely-reveals-whistleblower

    After all ‘gain of function’ drug testing is still illegal as its s biological weapon, that could be used by a rogue state. Remember IRAQ claim by Tony Blair of a bio-weapon and the death of Dr Kelly when he knew the truth. Yet now the US was paying a lab in China to make one. Blair and Bush were in partnership to ‘save the world’ back then. We know there was no bio-weapon, it was a fabrication. FAUCI was making a bio-weapon in China privately… (make your own mind up**)

    Here in the UK we grow mushrooms. In the dark.

    David Davis, I have a lot of time for. He is an MP that speaks out on injustice of our grossed out parliamentary systems that play to the gallery whilst ignoring the facts and on the top of the pile of misinformation are the usual suspects behind the ‘sanitised’ news the BBC claims is its own brand of popular ‘news and opinion’.
    We know that to be false. However the TV license is use to ‘prove’ popularity as outside the UK they do not know that people go to prison for refusing to pay for it.
    Even if only watch Strictly Come dancing. Nobody in the world pays a TV license. but here in the UK, we do. And the BBC claim its voluntary.

    Davis is often invited on all the major broadcasters as the voice of reason, and gets attacked on the BBC when he appears. As we know the BBC ‘orchestrates’ protest via is’ fringe groups in t same way the PROMS was yesterday packed out with EU flags on the last day of the proms. The BBC deny involvement, and yet they do not deny that they were involved in promoting the ‘flag display’ that would feature on BBC TV as ‘news and opinion’.

    The BBC I have on record was bing investigated by OFCOM for fabrication ‘popular news content to rank itself ‘up there’ on google news feeds. It still claims it is the voice of the nation and we are all happy to pay for the distinctive TV and radio programmes it provides by way of a license. It claims the hated TV license is cheap and is good value for money (comparing itself to Netflix) but nowhere else. The BBC had been accused of impartiality as well as abusing its global power and influence. That’s a fact. Not that we entirely trust the BBC to distinguish truth from fiction.***

    The BBC has decided to remake its own version (omitting a few more details) and correcting the evidence to give itself the all clear. Its BBC ‘entrainment’, now.
    https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/drama/steve-coogan-jimmy-savile-bbc-correct-newsupdate/

    The BBC is in such a state, its only claim to fame is propaganda and cover up.
    Defund the BBC, will be strongly resisted by Labour when next in office.

    And don’t be suprised if another COVID is found. Next time they won’t make the same mistake as vaccine choice. No ID, no job. No license No TV. No Car. No (NHS) health expectation either.
    We know how keen Labour were on lockdowns. We cannot afford another.

      Unfortunately no one will research this to see if it is a thing and also our Marianne will keep on going because authorities will keep on the coverup as long as people like her are not adversely affected.

        I expect the Left will pass on this because there is absolutely clear video evidence SHE is the criminal here. But if it was in any way ambiguous (like Floyd), they would be all over it.

        Having said that, there is also a good chance they will simply ignore what she did and flood the news with the bits which suit them. The BBC did this already by not showing the video – and now we know why.

            I’m sure we are all on some low-level ‘possible troublemaker’ lists along with thousands of other people on the right.

            Their chief concern is stopping any social unrest. They can’t do anything about the antagonisers (BAME forcing their culture on us and the Globalist Left forcing their ideology on us) – so they focus on stopping any reaction to it by suppressing the Right. Hence the huge over-reaction to the likes of Tommy Robinson.

            I wonder just to what extent the powers are they have against people like us who did nothing wrong, but they consider ‘enemies of the Leftist state’.

      On 21 March, Frank called the charity Bail for Immigration Detainees. The adviser who spoke to him says Frank was prepared to be removed from the UK under a voluntary return scheme and was not trying to avoid deportation.

      But he was not deported.

      I have personally seen three incidents where officials have clearly stepped over the bounds of reasonable behaviour – Home Office officials tried to deport my aunt, and at different times, two other people known to me on the flimsiest, most arbitrary grounds imaginable. All the cases were resolved in favour of the individuals but only after several months of challenging what I saw as officious bullying. The over-officiousness of individual officials in all three cases was off the scale – but resolved when matters were escalated to more senior, experienced staff.

      The Home Office has been a mess for decades – we have to weed out the wrong ‘uns and that is clearly a task that is beyond our present public sector – there will always be some level of dysfunction – hiding it and covering up is not an acceptable fix.

      Activist goons like Emma Haddad shouldn’t be in there in the first place….

    Lying Boris Johnson was the tool that scupperedd potential peace talks: The War Could Have Ended Months Ago — But the West Didn’t Want It To… When we think of the scale of suffering the war in Ukraine has been causing worldwide, it is hard to believe that Kyiv all but finalised a peace agreement with Moscow as early as April… ‘According to Ukrainska Pravda sources close to Zelenskyy, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson, who appeared in the capital almost without warning, brought two simple messages. The first is that Putin is a war criminal, he should be pressured, not negotiated with… Johnson’s position was that the collective West… now felt that Putin was not really as powerful as they had previously imagined, and that here was a chance to “press him.” (Hungarian Conservative)

    Warmongering Johnson pops up again this morning in the gung ho for Ukraine Daily Express: Boris: Britain must ‘ramp up’ military aid to Ukraine – likewise in the left-leaning otherwise peace-loving ‘i’ newspaper: Johnson tells Sunak and Biden: You’re feeble on Ukraine – Mr AsI feels constrained to make one of his edits: Sunak and Biden: You’re feeble on Ukraine

    The anti-family ‘i’ newspaper goes the Macaulay Culkin route: The joys of leaving the kids at home for holidays

    And just as the BBC likes to spin their shouty headline: Peckham: Man interviewed by Met Police after shop restraint – whereas lost somewhere down in the small print: A 31-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assault

    So the ‘i’ headlines: Sara Sarif’s father held – page 15, mind you

    The Times has at last shifted from their previous editorial position of the Labour-curious paper to learning to love Starmer

    Starmer vows to smash people-smuggling gangs… Traffickers would be treated like terrorists… in an interview with the Times (yet again) – so basically the cross-Channel people smuggling business would be nationalised under Labour: …accepting quotas of migrants from the EU, would be for future negotiation with Brussels – and obviously as future PM Starmer manoeuvres to get us back into the EU there’s going to be some hard pills served up by Brussels for us to swallow.

    Dear reader, I didn’t marry him – perish the thought

    The lately Labour-supporting Times – likewise the long-standing left-leaning ‘i’, goes anti-family: House or husband? No contest Charlie Gowans Eglinton… Romance? No thanks, I’d rather have a house than a husband… According to a new Girlguiding survey on what women (and girls) really want, house wins out (Times) – what could possibly have put that idea into their pretty little heads?

      What is interesting is that where I have got to, amid a bunch of competing back storylines, it is pretty clear the CIA is up to its neck in a a lot of nefarious off books stuff, with the FBI a fair bit behind. Plus senators, etc.

      One key actor does not get a mention at all best I can see, and that is David Strathairn, Director of the CIA black ops unit, working with a shadowy bunch not unlike the WEF and Soros. Who also appear not to get a mention.

      “The media hysteria, the government reaction, was not only a disastrous policy but a con. Instead of the media doing their job and examining some of the more outlandish claims made by the government, they not only went along with it, but they were enthusiastic government mouthpieces. A key plank of the Covid fear propaganda campaign was the ludicrous beatification of Captain Tom Moore, may he rest in peace, please give me strength.

      I must admit that even I was too scared to call out the bullsh*t that Captain Tom, aged 99, ‘walks’ in his garden a lot. The only one with balls enough to do that was James Delingpole, published by equally ballsy Kathy.

      James explained at the time (February 2021): ‘The reason for the cult of Captain Tom is that we are being played by a very cynical and devious political and media Establishment. Captain Tom has become a government propaganda tool. He is our equivalent of Alexey Stakhanov, the Russian miner celebrated as a Hero of the Soviet Union because he dug out such stupendous quantities of coal.’”

    I’ve taken some time out to explore the implications for me, of the, “Energy Security” Bill. I’ll try to communicate my findings as I see it. Others may disagree.

    There’s not a central document that appears, a draft of the whole document. That’s strange so I’m working off the ‘Research Briefings’ as a guide to what’s coming.

    First up. A name change from ‘Energy Security’ to simply “Energy”. That’s the first sign of what’s to come, although they could have laughingly called it the Energy Insecurity Bill. That’s more accurate.

    For the domestic energy user, so far as I’ve got, the important factor is, ‘Smart Meters’.

    Click to access CBP-9787.pdf

    I direct anyone interested to, Page 27 to start with, ‘Energy Smart Appliances’ then, in conjunction with P 27, P29/30. Here you’ll find that the Government are anticipating failure to supply regularly i.e. ‘securely’ the ‘New’ green energy forms. The secret weapon being, the Smart Meter. More on this another time. Using your Smart Meter the Government agency appointed will have the power to turn down or switch off completely, your energy supply. Emolliently described as Energy “flexibility” meaning off when there is no wind and no Sun. Get used to “Flexibility” in the energy context. Throw the light switch on arrival home one dark cold night – Nothing. That’s ‘Flexibility’ to come. Bit like the other word, Green Evangelists use, that of, “Sustainability”.

    For the many who don’t have a Smart Meter there will be a criminal law sanction to force occupiers to have one. More of that when I get into it. Numbers involved to 2022:

    Click to access Q4_2022_Smart_Meters_Statistics_Report.pdf

    I haven’t got to the criminal penalties yet and will not proceed to report here if there’s no interest.

    So far though, its beginning to look as if the horror stories are probably true.

        I’ve not come across anything that indicates (or not) the process of switching off yet but, having had a Smart Meter fitted some years ago, it meant a change of the actual meters elect/gas. My supplier for both has the ability to read my consumption the day before I do so, it’s a good check for me every month. That, as I see it, is the only benefit.

        However, see this info:

        “However, it is technically true. Smart meters allow energy suppliers to disconnect you or change the meter to a prepayment one remotely. Traditional meters mean suppliers usually have to apply to the courts for a permit to enter someone’s home to disconnect them or change them to a prepayment meter.”

With rare exceptions, the media have relished turning her into a ghoul. They are ably assisted by the Cheshire Constabulary who, post-trial, drip-feed corroborative detail to add verisimilitude, as in Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘The Criminal Cried’. They tell the media that Letby kept an “encrypted diary”, with “L.O.” having some sinister meaning. In fact, Letby has a cursive script and it’s L.D. not ‘L.O.’, being nurses’ common shorthand for ‘Long Day’, or a 12-hour shift. They’ve auctioned the film rights for their investigation, with ITV placing the winning bid. I’d advise ITV to check carefully for spin.”

    Starmer and Rayner off to Brussels to discuss the terms of the the UK rejoining the EU.

    Does the Country need the illegal immigration issue further muddied and undermined by outsiders, not in Government?

    Why does the EU think it should waste its time this way? Starmer is not the UK Governmen, why are the EU bothering to meet him?

      I am trying to imagine how anyone they meet will feel afterwards.

      “Listening to Angela Rayner this week has felt like real-time evidence for Karl Marx’s quip about the past weighing “like a nightmare on the brains of the living”.”

      Seeing brains in the same sentence as Rayner is novel.

      Clearly colleagues and media are trying to position her as something she is not. And that is anything other than a pig thick slapper propelled to a position of influence way beyond her abilities by virtue of having an accent.

      ‘What I am telling yew, Andrew…” is no cover beyond the bubble. And the Andrew Neil has ably showed what lie within the bubble t W1A.

      Clearly the fix is in between our soon new masters, mistresses at Labour, the EU, Graun, BBC etc, especially on matters mutually exclusive between environment, housing, and economy. So, we get legions more EA droids ticking boxes as the new care community workforce has a crafty No.2 in telephone kiosks and tube station stairwells.

        Ah…. totally different.

        She at last interviewing a ‘refugee’ welcome to her spare room?

        So, not really different at all. Just a posher accent.

    3rd most important item on BBC (international) home page:

    “Spanish police have arrested a man on suspicion of sexually assaulting a journalist after he allegedly touched her while she was live on TV. Isa Balado was reporting on a Madrid robbery on Tuesday when he walked up and appeared to touch her bottom, which he denied when she confronted him.”

    Enough’s enough Spain, surely there must be pressure now for the whole country to resign?

    However bad things are here, at least we’re not Canada (yet). An Ontario library is half empty due to an ‘equity-based’ policy that’s also seen all books published earlier than 2008 removed:

    “PDSB’s ‘equitable curation cycle’ is described generally in the board document as ‘a three-step process that holds Peel staff accountable for being critically conscious of how systems operate, so that we can dismantle inequities and foster practices that are culturally responsive and relevant’ […] ‘Ontario is committed to ensuring that the addition of new books better reflects the rich diversity of our communities,’ said Lecce.”

    Seems to be going around Twitter at the moment (although video is from a year ago):

    “BBC’s children show “Horrible Histories” has released a song called “Been Here From The Start” which is about black people always being in Britain.

    BBC is rewriting history by teaching children that the original Britons were black.”

    Nigeria hit by widespread blackout in ‘total system collapse’
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-66810202

    “President Bola Tinubu, who has been in power for just over 100 days, has promised to improve supply by allowing state governments to build their own power plants” – What type of power plants bbc?? Maybe Coal, but hasn’t mentioned this

    Maybe the bbc agree with Nigeria to building coal power stations, for the population to have lower pricing. Just us in the UK can be ripped off to pay for the green expensive energy

    According to google the majority of the energy in Nigeria is produced by coal – bbc to fact check and verify this, doubt it
