      Stars of David have been found graffitied on buildings in the Paris area, in acts that political leaders have said “recall the 1930s”.
      France is grappling with a big rise in antisemitic incidents.

      Political leaders, including President Emmanuel Macron, have warned of the risk of “importing” tensions caused by the Israel-Hamas war into France.

      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?

    I spent about 3 hours today watching the live feed of the covid enquiry.
    Dominic Cummings was I think pretty good in the hearing, revealing that many civil servants and officials were totally useless, with, for example, high level committees using graphs of likely deaths relying on old data which was already out of date, not to mention everyone disappearing from the office for school half term in the middle of February 2020.
    The lead enquirer gave me the distinct impression that the enquiry has already decided its conclusions, and the amount of ‘wise after the event’ pontification is astonishing. The enquirer asked Cummings why they had not considered that BAME people might be more at risk and then killed his own argument by showing writing from Patrick Vallance which mentioned only the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions – but not BAME – as being most at risk.

    What is so desperate to see is the chasm between the live coverage and the later coverage of it on the BBC news, and to be fair ITV also. They want three things 1. A gotcha moment against the Tory government 2. Anything that sounds scandalous 3. Sentimental tugging at the heart strings stuff. The idea of fair and balanced reporting of key strategic issues is of absolutely no interest whatever.

    A telling first-hand proof that the BBC news must not in any circumstances be taken at face value.

    PS hands up all those who never ever swore at work when something went badly wrong or some crass decision was made. Just as I thought. No-one.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I found myself watching it too – with some BBC kidult apologising for the ‘language ‘ every so often . The picture of collective incompetence – as described by Cummings – supports many views expressed at the time .

      It’s a shame it doesn’t go into more detail – chronology – such as staffing – and whether this was a weekday 0800 1600 crisis with everyone going home for the weekend …..

      But more deeply it shows the theme of a completely useless self serving civil service ….. repeated across the whole State – whether is be regulators. – water – energy – broadcasting – or big projects – HS2 – border control – plod – home office …..

      Best line “ covid is natures ‘ way of dealing with old people “ – – true – nice line boris …

      No wonder nothing works and the decline accelerates …

    Rochdale grooming: Predatory gang jailed for child abuse

    Not important enough for the front page of the BBC website at the time of writing.

    Another fine example of diversity and multiculturalism.


    • JohnC says:

      Nope : not on the front page this morning either:

      ‘The girls would often be picked up outside school in their uniforms, Minshull Street Crown Court heard.’

      ‘Judge Tina Landale said the men were “highly predatory” and they had committed “appalling abuse”.’

      ‘The schoolgirls, known as Girl A and Girl B, were aged 13 and 14 when they were plied with alcohol, cannabis and ecstasy pills before being sexually assaulted.’

      ‘The court heard that they were abused by various men, either together or on their own.’

      This is an appalling story which strikes right at the heart of what the extreme misandrist BBC activists detest the most. It’s far, far worse than one man raping someone : it’s groups of men who are in on it together and trust each other completely to keep it secret. And girls of 13 being ‘passed around ‘ FFS!. This should be the story of the year and in other circumstances would be met with protests, daily BBC headlines and demand for action to ensure it could never happen again.

      But it’s against the agenda. It’s Muslim men who have done it and the BBC are being careful to present them in a positive light because of their agenda to tone-down what people think about Hamas terrorists.

      If you think about it, it’s about as morally bankrupt as you can get. The Leftist activists (and by extension the BBC) do not care one bit how many 13 year old girls get drugged, abused and raped unless they are BAME and/or the men doing it are white English. Just like they don’t care how many teenage boys savagely murder each other with knives if the one doing the murdering is not white English.

      This extreme hypocrisy is why the Left and the BBC disgust me so much. All the ’empathy’ articles they write these days are just fake virtue-signalling. They don’t give a shit. It’s all to attack the Right who deal with the real world, not some impossible ideological utopia.

        The other day there was a BBC feature about the dangers of women running at night (I.E. from men). It came, laughably from a pressure group called Black Girls Do Run.

        Looking at the photo kindly supplied by Stew, perhaps the BBC should run a feature instead on the dangers of women from men with beards, and especially those also with ‘darker skin tones’ not to mention particular religious beliefs.

  4. Nibor says:

    Why haven`t the BBC made some polling or get access to some polls in Britain about the Middle east crisis ?

    Asking questions like

    which side do you support ?

    Are you happy with the politics of the Palestinian crisis being brought to the UK ?

    Where do you think migrants should be housed ?


    • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

      You’re asking the right questions, Nibor.
      We all know the answers. But will any of the media own up to being scared or biased?
      Worse still, the state broadcaster BBC has absolute contempt for the common man’s opinions. Best ignored as far as they’re concerned.

    PC Savage from Not The Nine O’Clock News rides again.


    • JohnC says:

      We all know he is being silenced because he might offend one of the terrorist supporters who might then escalate things with violence.

      And when one terrorist supporter starts that, there will quickly be a crowd of several dozen around him. Because they will all come out to confront the infidel.

      Next thing you know there will be hundreds of them in a fantical mob and people may well die.

      Much easier to arrest the white infidel before it starts. The BBC despise ‘racists’ like him anyway and will not make a fuss.

      That’s the state of our society now. It reached critical mass in some places long ago and now it can only get worse as it spreads across more and more cities. And make no mistake, it will. Their population here is growing much faster than ours.

      I’m still waiting for the BBC to start running articles on bringing Hamas supporters from Gaza over here. It seems none of the other Muslim countries want them.

        A man on the 17 Oct went down Bethnal Green Road, E2, London recording & criticising the Palestinian flags.
        He posted the video to Facebook.
        The police tracked him down, arrested him & banned him from attending Palestinian demonstrations.

        Here’s the Met reply tweeting there would be action. Posted 26 hours after original tweet

        The words in the video has him pointing at a rundown street of shops made up of shops mostly sporting Palestinian flags and ends “We let them into the country, this is the type of shite we end up with”.

    bbc verify

    Strikes on south Gaza: BBC verifies attacks in areas of ‘safety’

    Who verifies that verify is right. The bbc only uses the same methods to get its biased point over as it always has, but gives it a name and a logo, impressive, not


    • JohnC says:

      BBC verify are getting more and more ridiculous. By ‘verifying’ (which just means using google) these areas of ‘safety’ were ‘attacked’, they are implicitly trying to put Israel in the wrong.

      And by restricting the report to simply that they were ‘attacked’, they are avoiding any responsibility to investigate why. Because I guarantee you 100% it was not to simply go after civilians. That is the crucial difference between Israel and the terrorists the BBC support.

      The abrupt and complete dropping of the story about the bombing yesterday of the Jabalia ‘refugee camp’ tells us a lot about the BBC. It hasn’t been updated since the first article. The fact they are not bombarding us with pictures of dead and injured people in multiple articles loaded with empathy shows they have seen compelling evidence that it was exactly what Israel said it was. If they continued that story, they would have to tell us how Hamas are using refugees as human shields. And that is absolutely against their narrative of ‘victims’.

      It all proves beyond doubt they don’t care how many people die if the blame lies with Hamas. They are only interested in where they can blame Israel.

      Where are OFCOM ?. How come the government itself can slam the BBC for it’s bias yet we have heard nothing from OFCOM. They are a complete disgrace and should all be sacked.

    Amile off to Bletchley park – a place i visited about 20 years ago and was basically a disused dump – but looks like they’ve dun it up for a world chin wag about AI today …..

    What a waste of time and effort – if computers get more clever is any state gonna control it ? No . Or criminal brethren are far faster and cleverer at exploiting it for Money – and assumptions about internet security ( banks ) could look just dumb ….

    And for a joke – Obama has sent Kamala along so maybe we will get a ‘treat ‘ profound comment from her … which will make the whole thing worthwhile ….

    Meanwhile – I’m getting an even stronger feeling that we are in a world of early 1914 as everyone is making an effort to not have a war but it slides toward one – and that’s only the Middle East – not the forgotten Ukraine …..

      Could it be made up ? Incredible


      • JohnC says:

        IMHO the terrorist attacks by Hamas are because of the Leftist MSM and particularly the BBC.

        Because they knew they would be protected and presented as ‘freedom fighters’. The policy of the BBC to not call them terrorists is directly responsible in part for what they did. When we get an outcry from our own government about the bias of the BBC for matters like this, it should be ringing alarm bells everywhere.

        The aim is clearly to cause a Middle Eastern uprising against the Jews. The BBC are being fully complicit in helping that agenda. This blood is on their hands too.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      Is Kamala an example of Artificial Stupidy or is she Naturally Stupid (or should that be Unnaturally Stupid)? Still, she’s a Wimmin of Color so would make an excellent president.

      PS – if AI is so good, why does YouTube think I want to watch endless adverts of young women wanting products to dye their hair silly colours so they can ‘”be their true selves”? Why does my email receive 50 couldn’t-be-more-obvious spams each day telling me I’ve won a toothbrush at Boots, 500 spins at the Golden Casino, or that Fedex couldn’t deliver my parcel from Home Depot and to click here to arrange a new delivery?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Ian -fair assessment 😎although judging by the quality of the individuals giving evidence at the covid whitewash it migh be better if AI was in control of everything – we could dump the nonsense of ‘democracy ‘ save billions on non jobs in the public sector – so much more …


        • G says:


          I hear the BBC referring to the main reason for the Enquiry being, ‘the country’s preparedness for the next pandemic’. Forgetting to mention that we, as a country, will lose total control of any response when we gently and quietly slip into the warm, total embrace of the UN who will control our response to, “Pandemic’s” from December 23. That’s of course unless we withdraw from the existing treaty. I don’t hear any resistance (apart from Andrew Bridgen and a few others) to the forthcoming loss of any semblance of, so called, ‘Sovereignty’. We embrace the UN by default, doing nothing.


          • Fedup2 says:

            I can’t really see any purpose of the UN – those who want to get weapons ( chem bio nuclear ) will get them – big players ( not the UK ) will advance their National Interest and the ‘give me ‘ states will beg / crumps from the table – much like the EU …
            Maybe Gaza is the test to break it – if there is much left afterward ….

            As for the inquiry – Jeremy Hunt was health sec for about 9? Years immediately before the virus – with Hancock only being there for 3? Months – yet Hunt seems to have dodged responsibility for lack of real prep – such as enough stored PPE –
            And I’d bet there isn’t enough even now …. Or whether the UK could make its ‘ own ( actually I’d really like to know the answer to that ?)

    Ukraine war: Russian attacks force evacuations of children

    So in the midst of hundreds of human beings being blown to pieces in the most horrific manner every day, the BBC think children being moved to safety is the headline news from Ukraine.

    So I checked this article anticipating it should be a newspaper style article informing me of the facts of what is going on.

    But no. I got the ‘new’ style BBC report which is 90% pure empathy designed to make the basic facts seem far more significant than they are. This is how it starts:

    ‘It is still dark when an early train pulls into the station in central Ukraine and aid workers crowd expectantly around one of the carriages.’

    ‘The doors then open and a small child steps into the platform light.’

    ‘Hands stretch out to help her down as her mother follows, carefully passing her baby in a tiny pink carrycot to the helpers below.’

    This is not news at all. It’s the cheapest of journalism. It’s the kind of emotional tripe you would get in some ‘love story’ in a womans magazine.

    It’s a sign of just how dire BBC reporters have become since quotas became more important than ability. Another Leftists agenda campaign whose only result has been to make everything worse. Just like ‘multiculturalism’.

    Lets see who wrote it:


    What a joke.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Come on JohnC – lighten up – it’s the New BBC with all the gals showing their maternal side … as for news – really no longer the BBC – listening to the US colonel McKenzie – who thankfully pops up here a lot – wouid teach the viewer something – which the BBC is no longer interested in –

      – for instance – which Middle East country is Sunni / Shia and what that means ….

      .. instead – the BBC would spend ages ‘fact checking ‘ such a lecture without any real benefit to anyone ….

    85p bargain gets you £85m+ worth of public inquiry conclusions as our Fourth Estate closes ranks with our regime elite in this preordained edition

    We may not manufacture much anymore over here these days but our BBC produces a fine line in making self-fulfilling news prophesy…

    AI named word of the year by Collins Dictionary… Usage of the term has quadrupled this year, the publisher said. (BBC)

    Well, one need only wonder for a moment how that happened?

    Here’s your clue – all of the following are gleaned from BBC online ‘news’ reports this morning:

    Demis Hassabis: AI must not ‘move fast and break things’ (BBC)

    More on this story: What is AI, how does it work and what can it be used for?; On the warpath: AI’s role in the defence industry; Seven AI companies agree to safeguards in the US

    AI: Scientists excited by tool that grades severity of rare cancer (BBC)

    More on this story: Safer brain surgery using AI possible within two years; Google boss: AI too important not to get right; AI offers huge promise on breast cancer screening; AI cuts treatment time for cancer radiotherapy

    None of the above make it to Most Watched or Most Read status and yet still the BBC will keep banging on about AI

    The Labour supporting Daily Mirror provides a certain sense of amusement today as a pair of issues it proudly proclaims as: Mirror campaign victories – might just as well be trumpeted as the sum total of Rishi Sunak’s Tory achievements this past year: Train ticket offices SAVED… XL Bullies are to be BANNED in weeks – thin gruel indeed for the conservative-minded. Some inevitably unpopular putative service cutbacks annulled and the Dangerous Dogs Act amendment – each of which can equally be claimed as a Labour victory

    Don’t forget the cigarette ban – there’s one literally for the teenagers, as I like to say

    We recall The King’s Speech (2010) was a drama all about an embarrassing public stutter – and this doesn’t bode well for: State Opening of the Parliament of the United Kingdom is scheduled to take place on 7 November 2023. King Charles III will open the fourth session of the 58th Parliament, which is expected to be the last before the next general election. (thank you Wiki)

    Covid Inquiry… what covid inquiry? The Fourth Estate closes ranks with our regime elite around the Keir Starmer formula of “sooner, longer, harder”

    Shoulda, woulda, coulda…

    Covid Inquiry bombshell… Boris: The old should accept their fate… Ex-PM’s cruel and reckless pandemic plans exposed by aides & advisors (Labour-supporting Mirror)

    Johnson: Let elderly accept fate (Starmer fanboy Times) – don’t believe me that the Times are going all-in for Sir Keir? Well, their top frontpage report is worded so as to further bolster his Blairite Captain Sensible PR efforts against his party’s crazies: Starmer threatens shadow ministers who call for Gaza ceasefire – how about: Starmer named word of the year by Mr AsI… Usage of the name on the Times frontpage has quadrupled this year.

    The top coronaphobic title was and is the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper: UK’s old people should ‘accept their fate’ from Covid – Boris Johnson’s private stance revealed (top pick for the BBC’s online press review)

    The jokey blokey Daily Star makes it out of the last place BBC ‘and finally’ spot to be promoted to mid-table respectability – as reward for their early pre-emption of the Covid inquiry conclusions splashed frontpage about half a decade prior to the real thing concluding – available for 85p rather than: In August 2022, two months after its establishment, press reports suggested that £85m had already been spent on the Covid-19 Inquiry. Recent reports have suggested that number has now topped £100 million (The Institute for Government)

    OFFICIAL Verdict into Govt handling of the covid crisis… Britain: An apology… The Daily Star may have given the impression over the past few years that Boris Johnson and Co were useless, moronic, inept, pointless and pathetic clowns… It turns out they’re much, much, much, much, much worse than that. We are happy to set the record straight. (The Daily Star there, stealing the Times former laurels and accolade as the paper of record)

    In case you were wondering our BBC demotes the The Sun frontpage to bottom of the league ‘and finally’ postion in their press line-up. And in case your were wondering The Sun goes with: How Dare You… After going soft at hate demos… Cops rip down posters of Israeli children held hostage by Hamas… in North London

    I’m reminded of that ancient graffiti gag “Bill Stickers is innocent” – there’s one for the teenagers

    As for this covid inquiry and what’s coming out of it in terms of the inevitable “sooner, harder, longer” mantra built-in assumption and preordained conclusions – I’m going to borrow from the Daily Star’s thought for the day: We hate to say we told you so… but we told you so!

      Of course what is happening in Gaza is terrible, however I watched a bit of news video of people supposedly pulling children’s bodies out of the huge crater left by an Israeli bomb.

      In one clip, a man is shown running up the crater from the very bottom within a double row of concerned helpers. He runs straight past the camera and howls into the lens holding what appears to be a small child in pristine clean pyjamas.

      How anyone would even survive being at the epicentre of such a massive blast is mystifying but to come out without a speck of dust on them is amazing.

      I suspect the Hamas global PR department might be involved. Their tactic seems to be enrage as many Muslims in surrounding countries as possible while at the same time heaping pressure on the West to intervene on their behalf.

      Of course, an honest western media reporter might have questioned the footage, but they didn’t of course.

    I was a tad curious about the real reason for the ongoing Covid Enquiry, but now I think I can begin to see what its real purpose is.

    It is basically theatre, with the end game of discrediting as much as possible those people who brought about Brexit.

    It is quite obviously set up purely for that reason and is possibly supported and cheered on by some EU bigwigs.

    The concentration on personal behaviour of the people most closely associated with securing Brexit rather than the overall effectiveness of how Covid was handled and what can be learned tells me all I need to know.

    And these sort of turds want to be in charge of the Country!


    • Fedup2 says:

      I think another reason was for those responsible to delay criticism of their failure to prepare and deal with any pandemic / major health incident …. I mean – what’s the time line ? Report in 2025 ? Memories fading – other trouble – only those directly affected – mourning their kin because of the lies and failure of nut nut – hunt – rishi – Hancock et al ….

      But on the upside – it confirms the assessment that the UK government is just run by overpaid – over powered – dolts – and I’d include Cummings for exposing his views on the internet at the time …..

      Will anything change ?

      At most – they’ll cover their tracks better

      What won’t change

      No Real preparation
      Having clever people able to collect / assess data and act on it
      Personsl objective being more important than punters

      Is because anything they issue, even just a link, is accepted as Golden Gospel by JonDonists throughout the msm?

      The term ‘pr war’ is interesting, as that is what the brown old men in the ME need most for the black double plank men from the West to take back to the white tv producers in London.

      But so far it looks like Israel has had enough of deaths by a thousand baby beheadings so Lammy can get a Nobel Peace Prize for being in the room for a 6month breather for Hamas to get $50 global billions to rearm for the next day trip.

      And even weathervanes like Starmer have twigged the U.K. secret ballot voting public is not the same as Owen, Champion or Warsi standing on a bridge or behind a studio panel,desk.

    That’s the way to handle a situation. Robust response.
    The Dagestan riot was denounced by Russia’s Muslim leaders, as well as the head of the neighboring republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. If any Chechens attempted a similar stunt, Kadyrov warned on Tuesday, they would be met with “three warning shots in the air,” followed by one to the head

  28. Flotsam says:

    Covid inquiry.
    Boris Johnson is alleged to have said that elderly people should accept their fate. This was given in evidence by Chief Scientific Offices, Sir Patrick Vallance.
    Vallance’s view was that Johnson was “obsessed with older people accepting their fate and letting the young get on with life and the economy going”. Which has a somewhat different nuance to it.

    In any case, as put to the inquiry by Vallance, the “quote” doesn’t appear to be verbatim and may have been subject to Vallance’s own interpretation of what Johnson said.


    • Eddy Booth says:

      Either way it sums up Boris Johnson’s policy at the time: empty the hospitals of old folk, and move them into care homes to die there; even if they have Covid and that means seeding it further.
      All to make way for the massive infux of younger patients (which never even arrived).
      He’s a disgusting man and non too clever.


      • Flotsam says:

        A number of issues that Johnson had to deal with.

        Without a functioning economy we, all of us, would have nothing.

        What exactly could be done with large numbers aged patients, many with dementia?

        Medical care, who would have priority given limited resources, who best benefits? Babies and pregnant mothers? Young people? Economically active adults? Aged people?

        I realise there are people whose aged relatives died in the pandemic but there were many difficult decisions that had to be made. No easy answers.

    AI, AI, AI, AI, are you getting phased by the media’s fascination with this total bollox?

    Let me explain…. Tech companies have been making a killing for years selling ever more stuff with added bells and whistles.

    AI is simply a way of adding another string to their bow to make more money.

    There is NO SUCH thing as “artificial intelligence’’ it’s simply a label being stuck onto further human tweaking around with computers to come up with another level of the same old shit under this stupid new label in order to keep the techie money go round spinning.

    Computing will pretty much always keep getting a bit smarter but only if humans keep pushing the right buttons.

    Worth bearing in mind that pretty much all 10 of the Worlds richest humans are techie people….that should tell you all you need to know.

    I am just amazed that the BBC, the people who brought you “Verify” have fallen for this global confidence trick and are now pretty much acting as cheer leaders for it.


    • tomo says:

      Did you see the “write a poem about Joe Biden” vs “write a poem about Donald Trump” AI test?

      Start with a desired outcome and work back programmatically eh?

      When ChatGPT launched I spent a few weeks exploring its opinions / prejudices about politics and social matters – which magically aligned with those types I can imagine coding it.

      Closely targeted technical matters also revealed scientific tribalism – no better than an improved Wikipedia …


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      ‘AI’ means a lot of different things to different people.

      There’s what engineers and IT geeks understand as AI, what Joe Public think AI might mean, what politicians think voters think AI means, what the media think readers and viewers think AI means, and what certain organisations and individuals think they might be able to exploit in some way, and which they’re calling AI… and they’re not really the same thing at all.

      Should we panic and hide under the bed? No.

      AI, as I understand it as an engineer, starts with clever programming which results in software which can be ‘trained’ to perform a task, or set of tasks, more and more effectively and efficiently by a process of iteration – trial and error. In theory, it could keep on ‘learning’ to perform a task, or set of tasks, until it was as good at that specific task, or set of tasks as a human. Again, largely in theory, it could eventually exceed the capabilities of a human to perform that specific task, or set of tasks, due to being more efficient and less likely to make mistakes, get tired, or bored etc…

      Is that a threat to humans as a species? No, no more than a stick, or a car is a threat, depending, of course on how you use them.

      Is it a threat to many jobs? Yes, anything which can be done better and/or more efficiently by a machine, sooner, or later will be, and arguably, should be… especially when it comes to making people’s lives better – healthcare, for example.

      Is this what is being ‘sold’ to Joe Public currently – no, not a the moment, despite the hype we’re not really there yet, and it will probably only happen gradually over the next several decades.

      Will some people make a lot of money out of selling Joe Public something they will describe as ‘AI’? Yes, of course, that’s how it usually goes, and more fool you if you buy it.

      The world’s richest people aren’t ‘techie people’ at all, they are salespeople with financial backing who know how to exploit techie people and market technology well.

    I do hope someone will build an AI robot and seek a job interview in the bBC which it is awarded.
    This site could offer services to appropriately programme the Robot
    to operate as a “trojan horse” so to speak!

    AI ( or its Scottish version AYE…(i,m trademarking that!!)

    Think a few years down the line. Iv,e told my daughters that the future smart phones will enable specific services for self health diagnosis.

    This will; develop into better informed customers as opposed to todays. fingers crossed approach when entering into NHS territories.
    This more focused “demand” must surely lead to the NHS upping its game substantially or accelerate the development of external private services who are possibly working on this scenario as we speak. And positioning themselves accordingly.


    • Scroblene says:

      Tomo, you said earlier, “Tony Blair is tight with Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison whose declared intention is to be have Oracle the sole repository of medical patient records in the USA”…

    Uganda court fines US couple $28,000 for child cruelty

    ‘They had been charged with child trafficking and torture, for which they could have faced life in prison.’

    ‘The pair made the boy sleep on a wooden platform and fed him cold food.’
    What ???.

    In what way – apart from the rabid BBC agenda and obsession with the USA – does this story about an American couple living in Uganda warrant front page news at the BBC ?.

    This obsession of the BBC with any case involving white people doing something bad to black people is totally out of control now. It’s totally racist.

    Meanwhile in Londonistan last weekend, plent of things far more relevant going unreported by the same BBC:

    Not one day when Covid rules followed in No 10 – top civil servant

    The ‘top civil servant’ is Helen MacNamara.

    From wiki:
    ‘MacNamara is married to Alex Towers, a former civil servant, who was previously Director of the now-defunct BBC Trust.’

    Right. Another typical institutional far-Left civil servant then.

    Once again, the bias in all of this from the BBC is just ridiculous. It’s all to make sure Boris can never return and the Tories lose the next election.

    We now live in a fascist state. All right-wing threats are being politically destroyed. The Left have infested almost all of our government institutions.

      “The purpose of the inquiry is to learn lessons on a matter of public concern; no-one will be found innocent or guilty during the proceedings”.

      Well why waste millions of tax-payers’ hard-earned cash, farting around the blame game, piddling about with ill-advised sentiment and utter twaddle, and instead, they can all get their sleeves rolled up and get some real issues sorted, like illegals rampaging around my country, and foreigners trying to break the society we used to have here?

      Of course they want to blame Boris and the rest of the government back then, it’s the way these sham ‘trials’ are done – nobody really gives a flying f*** what the outcome is!

      Luckily, the words ‘snivel serpent’ and their ‘failure’ crop up with regularity, but there’ll be nobody with the b***s to do anything about the problem!
