Start the week 18th September 2023

A former BBC employee called Russell Brand is now the subject of an execution by media . Mr Brand is not ‘approved ‘ so – like many others – must be destroyed . But if the BBC is found to have ‘looked the other way ‘ again – it will help our cause of ending the Biased BBC .

    New statistics from the Home Office reveal the taxpayer is now forking out £8 million a day to house asylum seekers in hotels, with most of the cost coming out of the foreign aid budget. The overall cost of the government’s asylum and accommodation system is now a whopping £3 billion overall. Yvette Cooper points out that the cost of hotel accommodation has gone up by a third since Rishi promised to end hotel use.

    TalkTV Ian Collins is ranting ranting against the idea that there could be a conspiracy against Russel Brand
    He just sneered “on a down market TV station someone praised Brand”
    By which he means GBnews and Beverley Turner.

    Sure believing every conspiracy theory at first glance is crazy
    but likewise dismissing every conspiracy theory at first glance is crazy too .. it’s the same type of thinking

    There are some conspiracies in plain sight.

    Maybe The Times & C4 should do an investigation into why Nick Brown has been suspended by Labour for a year? (and two weeks)

      I don’t automatically dismiss conspiracy theories. I believe every “conspiracy theory” should be considered on its own merits.

      I don’t buy the moon landing and 9/11 conspiracy theories. But I don’t dismiss them as the ravings of lunatics either. People were right to point out apparent anomalies that needed explaining. There are always strange anomalies in every great event. But most of the time, in my opinion, they don’t indicate conspiracies.

      Through my own study of this interesting subject, I have concluded that there have been three great conspiracies in history:

      1. Jesus never existed. He is a literary invention.

      2. William Shakespeare was a front man. The real author of the plays was an aristocrat, probably Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford.

      3. The Lockerbie Bombing had nothing to do with Libya. It was ordered by Iran and carried out by a Palestinian terrorist group. Britain and America for reasons unknown wanted Libya to take the blame and fitted up an Innocent man.

      I don’t know enough to comment on Russell Brand.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2023/09/19/rishi-sunak-news-live-tories-starmer-labour-nhs-latest/

    ……………

    Dover MP Natalie Elphicke told the Commons that the BBC’s “shocking report” contained the “breath-taking” disclosure of free French public bus services being used to ferry migrants from camps to Dunkirk beaches.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-63229010

    ….

    Today the BBC journalists Michael Keohan and Colin Campbell released a shocking report on the channel crossings. It showed people smugglers selling their wares brazenly in the migrant camps and many children living in unsafe and dangerous conditions, as well as—this is breathtaking—a free French public bus service that migrants can use to travel directly from the camps to the Dunkirk departure beaches. Will my right hon. Friend allow a statement on the issue of tackling the small boat crossings and the Government’s response in their work with France?

    The majority of children in a landmark study on puberty blockers experienced positive or negative changes in their mental health, new analysis suggests.

    The original study of 44 children, who all took the controversial drugs for a year or more, found no mental health impact – neither benefits nor harm.

    But a re-analysis of that data now suggests 34% saw their mental health deteriorate, while 29% improved.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-66842352

    original study = found no mental health impact – neither benefits nor harm

    revisit = 34% saw their mental health deteriorate, while 29% improved.

    Mr Freedman argues it is vital that young people and their families have the “best information possible” when making decisions on medical treatment.

    In last night’s “University Challenge” I swear I heard Bobby Sands being described as an “IRA officer”. It was rather quick because Amol Rajan does tend to gabble, but I am sure I heard it. Now I would call Bobby Sands an IRA terrorist, but I suppose I am just a hater.

    I have also just heard an “interview” on Five Dead between Nihal Arthanayake and Hamza Yassin, the fat muslim bloke who inexplicably “won” Strictly last year. They were discussing ospreys. Fair enough, a nice little topic. Except that Hamza insisted that just as birds cross national boundaries, so should humans be allowed to do. Hmm. I think I see a flaw in his reasoning. Of course, Nihal quickly pulled him up to point out that this line of argument was ridiculous.

    Only joking. Of course he didn’t. He just let it pass, because it is what passes for logic in the North London clown world they inhabit.

    In other news, OFCOM finds GB News guilty of bias yet again. Seems like they can’t catch a break.

    Also, the FCA finds no evidence that anyone has been debanked because of their political views. And these are the people who are meant to regulate the banks. How doomed are we?

          ‘The Russell Brand Emergency’. Britain has half a million people injured by the mRNA jab. 7.5 million on the NHS waiting list. Excess deaths are running at 1,000 a week. But all the newspaper headlines say that the most important issue is, Russell Brand was once a very naughty boy. According to the Metropolitan Police, not one person came forward to officially accuse Brand of any crime, and only one investigation is taking place after Downing Street said that the allegations are “very serious and concerning”. But no criminal charges have been made and Brand is assumed innocent until proven guilty. However the British Government are now asking Youtube if they can take Brand down, and are now using the ‘Brand Emergency’ as impetus for passing of the Orwellian Online Harms Bill. Russell Brand was known to have been a very promiscuous person. Victorian morals are very important to the BBC. This is why the ‘Brand Emergency’ is extremely important for the mainstream media the government and the intelligence agencies. Far more ‘serious and concerning’ to the Prime Minister, than war in Ukraine or death and injury from a Moderna Jab.

          Will the next BBC character coming along be Neil Oliver. The Cabinet Office and Moderna arrange for GCHQ staff to befriend former BBC staff who worked on ‘Coast’. See if any of them can be bribed to accuse Neil Oliver of anything. Money talks.

            Brand is another distraction. As you say the real news is the destruction caused by the injections. There were no excess deaths in the UK in 2020. The excess deaths, now running around 150,000-200,000 since 2021, have been primarily caused by the injections. The fact they have barely mentioned this should worry you. Really worry you. They will come with the next ‘plandemic’. They are already locking down people in southern India, so the next ’emergency’ could be called at any time. Gates smiled and told us that the next time it will get our attention.

              I don’t think “distraction” is the right word. I think the word is destruction.

              Anyone who questions the narrative gets hit. Brand’s bad behaviour went back decades, but no-one said a peep. Strange…

              BTW, for what it’s worth, I think (at least some) of the women were telling the truth. But this was known ages ago. The media weren’t interested. Now they are. Why?

              Because… he’s regularly warning his followers about not trusting the media, the government and big pharma…and suddenly the shit has hit the fan.
