    Times like this you hark back to other BBC explainers, like BBC Young Reporter and their good friend Huw…

    When the Sachs thing broke , what ten years ago or maybe more, I made sure that I avoided Brand and all his works. But it seems that he is annoying those I regard as enemies in the hyperglobalist establishment which can’t be bad, my enemies enemy is my friend sort of thing. So I will sample his pod cast, or whatever it is , for the first time. Perhaps he may get more ‘followers’ or views as a result of the attempts to shut him down than he had previously.

      You will like him for daring to say some of the things he says – but you will leave with the impression that he is indeed the complete tw@t you thought he was before.

      As they have done with everyone who speaks out against the Leftists agenda, the whole MSM are out to ruin him.

      I wonder what happens to women who accuse men of rape or whatever who are then found innocent. I wonder if they have made a law that they can’t be done for lying and ruining someones life.

    Manchester stabbing: Nathaniel Shani was polite and caring – family

    Of course he was. Asking the family what their murdered child was like is possibly the most pointless thing a journalist can do – it’s down in the gutter scraping the barrel for empathy.

    But the main point of this article is this:

    ‘Two boys, aged 13 and 14, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.’

    And not a single word in the report expressing any shock or anything unusual in such a statement. 13 and 14 year old boys stabbed someone else to death !. Presented matter-of-fact as if it’s the same as if they were 25.

    The whole article is devoted to milking as much empathy from the family as possible. The BBC don’t care one bit that 13 year old children are stabbing each other. And we all know why : it’s because they are black so there’s no anti-white racist agenda value.

    Nathanial himself is of course black.

    I seem to be making this same comment every few days now.


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      Absolutely no chance of getting a murder charge past a Manchester jury. They best they will get is a manslaughter charge.

      After all the lovable rogues had no idea that plunging a massive knife into someone multiple times would result in someones death. They didn’t mean to do it, one of they even writes poetry etc etc.

      But who benefits from the circus? The lawyers – Kerching.


    • harry142857 says:

      Lots of angelic looking photographs of 12 year old kids that turn into monsters by 14. No father’s to control their offspring and teachers not allowed to discipline troublemakers and pinko social workers painting criminals as victims are all contributing factors.

      No doubt the killers are IC3.
      I’ll give you 10/1 they were white boys.


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      OT a bit, but a notorious local shoplifter, thief, petty drug dealer, and fence was killed recently in an accident at a busyish (we live in the country) junction. Someone allegedly didn’t see him zipping through the red light on his moped.

      It was reported on the BBC in local news, where he was described as a “kind and loving young man, who never had a bad word for anyone.”

      Those of us who’d ever encountered him in real life might have described him otherwise, especially if he was busy lifting your lawnmower over the fence with a couple of his fellow ‘white van’ people at the time.

  5. atlas_shrugged says:

    Us insomniacs may have heard a mad cow on LBC the other night banging on and on and on and on and on (still!) about ‘THE KISS’.

    This time despite the fact that the chap has resigned this mad fem was talking about him being jailed. This is it with the fems – they don’t stop until the bloke has ‘offed himself or his wife has left him. They are full of vengeful hate and want blood.

    So how about jailing Matt Hancock for the kiss caught on security camera, or all these Grannies slobbering over their grand children.

    It’s a damn outrage.

      Morning Atlas,

      If you’re looking for predatory males giving youngsters unwanted kisses and nuzzles, may I suggest an investigation into the current numero uno in the white house?


    • BRISSLES says:

      Lots of us females have, at some point, had to endure bear hugs and a slobbery missed-the-lips kiss from an over enthusiastic older male relative, should they be reported too ? (all you older chaps on here take note if you think you are guilty of inflicting 🙂 )


      • G says:


        I have throughout recognised the dangers. My personal tactility level is zero. Not even a ‘kisse, kisse cheek job’ on greeting/parting of which the exhibitionist / socialists / lovies are fond. Don’t mingle with crowds – feel totally uncomfortable.



      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        Bris, my sisters would agree with you, my mum’s younger brother (now in his late 70s) still likes the younger ladies and putting his hands, eyes, and lips where they aren’t wanted… he has been warned, multiple times, but just claims “at his age” blah blah. If he ever does get nabbed by the police for it, I’m sure he’ll deserve whatever happens to him.

        If what my mother says of her younger days working as an industrial nurse in Manchester and Birmingham in the 60s are true, women really had to know how to look after themselves. She taught my sisters a few tricks, and I recall a certain slobbery uncle getting the knee from my older sister at least once.

        On the other hand, a lot of us males have also, at some point, had to endure hugs and slobbery kisses from over enthusiastic older female (and male?) relatives. I had one aunt who liked to pinch my bum from when I was about 13, and ALWAYS angled for a dance and snog under the mistletoe at family Christmas gatherings. You quickly learn to be somewhere else, fast.

        It’s not pleasant, but it’s life, and you just teach your kids the ‘rules of the game’ to ensure they know how to avoid it too. Perhaps those unpleasant ‘family’ experiences make you more aware and help avoid something worse with a stranger/teacher/vicar/BBC celebrity etc…


        • Up2snuff says:

          Big Bro, or you go ‘sideways on’ and offer the cheek or put your arms up in front of you when ‘Aunt Agatha’ hoves into view with the intention of planting a wet, juicy one, on you. That is something I note that Jenni Hormoso did not do and the position of her hands was a bit of a give-away in photos.

    Is it the WEF or China increasingly pulling the strings?

    Is the weak efforts of the leaders of Western Nations concealed by mere ‘tough talk’ toward China?

    Or, is the deals stitched up with China already in place?

    Its always the Lefties that are most nasty.
    I remember Johnathan Ross & Russell Brand ganging up on Andrew Sachs for cheap laughs on the BBC.


  11. Jeff says:

    I watched (most of) the Dispatches about Russel Brand last night…and just thought I’d make a couple of points.

    For a start off I’ve never liked Brand. I find him puerile, irritating and gross. I wouldn’t have watched one of his juvenile programmes if you’d paid me. Right, I’ve got that off my chest…

    However, it’s clear that lots of folk did like him, particularly, almost breath takingly stupid young women. Most of these bimbos claimed they were shocked at his behaviour…but why? FFS, have you looked at this lunatic on stage? If he’d behaved like a gentleman and invited you in for a cup of tea, then I’d have been shocked.

    I don’t doubt for a second that Brand took full advantage of his celebrity position and enjoyed himself with (possibly) hundreds of gormless young women. But it should also be noted that nearly all these complainants kept going back for more.

    This sort of thing has gone on forever. There were stories about John Lennon and his “inappropriate behaviour” with schoolgirl fans. There were rumours about Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis was notorious, as was Chuck Berry.

    And isn’t it worthy of note that despite all these allegations being known for well over a decade, by all of the media, they leave it until he’s become a right royal pain in the arse to the establishment before they decide to expose him. That’s the interesting part, as far as I’m concerned.

    He’ll have to be careful, though.

    Look what happened to Julian Assange…


    • Up2snuff says:

      Jeff, sadly, you could also have mentioned “There were stories about John Lennon and his “inappropriate behaviour” with schoolgirl fans. There were rumours about Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis was notorious, as was Chuck Berry.” the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King – extremely, very sadly – in that roll call.


    • vlad says:

      Brand has been increasingly mocking and critical of the woke left.
      Perhaps he had to be silenced.

        An afternoon tea selection that suggests all is SNAFU in media world.

        Russell Brand: In Plain Sight review – so many red flags ignored for so long

        Mainly by the media, until he strayed – Ed?

        Strange to me these women would wait more than 10 years to come forward against Brand. And to do so together. And to remain anonymous. And for the reporters to not publish the supposedly damning texts, etc.

        He is replying to a truly hilarious post from mini-YAB.

        The investigation into Russell Brand is not a “co-ordinated attack by the MSN”. It’s a joint piece of work by credible journalists working for credible news organisations.

    Brand has BBC employment history: therefore 100% guilty until proven innocent in a court of law.
    Case closed in my book.


  13. JohnC says:

    Just look at the President of the United States:

    US Prez Biden Walks Off From Press Conference

    It’s absolutely outrageous the BBC are ignoring all such videos.

    Should we be worried about older politicians?

    Of course this article puts Trump and Biden in the same boat – even though it is very, very obvious Trump runs rings around sleepy Joe.

    I almost spat my tea out when I read this:

    ‘Some people, known as “super agers”, retain the cognitive functions of much younger people. These are people in their 80s and older with the cognitive health of those two to three decades younger. ‘

    ‘Some scientists consider leaders like Biden to be super agers.’

    Here’s the BBC author:

    I don’t have the words to describe what I think of the BBC about this.


    • vlad says:

      ‘Some scientists consider leaders like Biden to be super agers.’


      But it’s the BBC, so believable.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        Hilarious… yes, Biden is a super ager, as in, he is super aged.

        My parents are the same age as Biden, and honestly, they both make him look like a bumbling old fart, if you didn’t know any different you’d say they were at least a decade, or more his junior.

        Maybe it’s just me, but I would place him in his 90s, maybe a fairly well preserved 100 odd?

        Mind you, the author of the piece seriously looks all of 12, so what would she know about getting older?


        • JohnC says:

          Hired by the BBC as part of their quotas no doubt.

          As we say in software : rubbish in = rubbish out.


  14. vlad says:

    Some black teens in a stolen car deliberately target and kill a white guy on a bike. Black on white crime happens all the time in the wonderfully diverse USA, but I wonder if the BBC will play it 24/7 on their news, like they did for the criminal George Floyd who died of a drug overdose while being detained by a cop who simply followed standard procedure for arrests.
    (The cop will be rotting in jail for many years to come.)

      Yes Sadiq, ULEZ is working so well, air pollution could be cut even more, and traffic accidents if you banned vehicles entirely… go on, do it.

      These stupid, dictatorial little men and their schemes to make their little corner of the universe ever less attractive to: business, investors, day trippers, holiday makers, residents… – what could possibly go wrong?

  20. Thoughtful says:

    I have been reading about the ‘lynching’ of Russel Brand from various angles, and I have to say I am struck by how closely it resembles the Panodrama Tommy Takedown methods used by broadcasters soliciting Brands close friends to say something bad about him.

    And in exactly the same way Brands friends informed him of what was going on, and he says he was made aware some time ago they were out to get him.

    So I went back to the Saville story to find what happened, and there were numerous complaints about him over the years and at least three Police investigations which did not result in charges because of lack of evidence.
    The fact here is that Saville had a history of abuse stretching back to the 1950s.

    Saville died in 2011 and practically immediately the accusations began, and everyone with an axe to grind in the British media was encouraged to come forward with their allegations, as they were in America following Weinstein, and the Me Too movement, but not a single soul appears to have made any allegations against Brand when they had the chance

    This is extremely odd because there were all kinds of wild allegations flying which couldn’t possibly true, and many innocent men were being wrongly accused with little or no come back for the women involved.

    There is plenty of motivation to get Brand out of the way with the reach he has and his uncovering of the Socialists at the top being utterly corrupt, along with the lying media covering up for them. The methods being used we have seen before, and the women here can hardly be regarded as credible given the time they have remained silent.

    Regardless of what you think of Brand during his immature years, he is now a spokesman for freedom of speech and thought and the right to respectfully disagree with someone when you don’t share their views.
    The people who have stood up for him are those we might consider to be on our side of the fence such as Lawrence Fox, Elon Musk, and Andrew Tate.

    This is someone speaking his truth and had he been on the Left I doubt this would be happening to him. (I don’t think Brand in on the Right but he appears more interested in uncovering the truth of the corruption)


    • Fedup2 says:

      Inevitably he is going to be arrested and charged – in order to both shut him up and if they can fix the trial – destroy him . I don’t know anything about him – at all – I’m never seen his programmes – but the technique being used against him is more common .
      The women ‘coming forward ‘ should be ashamed of themselves for being with him and also not being too bothered to complain at the time if anything happened – but the world seems full of low life groupie trash – but there you go ….

      If brand is unapproved they won’t let go of him ….it’s a war

  22. Guest Who says:

    It can all be sorted in post.



    She mentioned that when she shared a positive account of her encounter with Brand, they failed to include it in their story.

    She confirmed that Brand was indeed kind to her and everything between them was consensual.

    However, her account didn’t align with the mainstream media narrative, so it was excluded from the documentary and article.

    This is one of the many individuals who were contacted among the hundreds.


    And, named. Maybe why the media are now trawling for more anonymous babes via every platform?

    The Observer is missing from the BBC’s Blog about the newspaper front pages: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-66835045. But the BBC do state that “The shadow foreign secretary, David Lammy, tells the Observer that a Labour government would hold regular meetings with the European Union. He says the UK is “isolated and missing”, and needs to get back to playing a leading role in world affairs.” David Lammy willy-waving on behalf of a future Labour Government should help to lose Labour the next General Election.
