    I’m thinking of starting one of those online charity things for the BBCs addiction to empathy porn for anyone not Israeli …. They’ve got Fergal the undertaker as the Angel of Death reporting from a 5 star hotel in Jerusalem ….and Reeta is on the roof getting her 4 day combat ribbon as well .

    I wonder who is next – Huw ?

      Covid enquiry update, courtesy of the BBC 6 pm news.
      Helen Macnamara was giving evidence, the person about whom Dominic Cummins used the c word.

      My conclusions from the BBC reportage.

      1. The government should have prioritised the prevention of hurty feelings instead of focussing on the pandemic.
      2. Civil servants are all wonderful
      3. The government should have had quotas to make sure the views of women were given equal weight.
      4. It was ok for ms Macnamara to use the F word and attend number 10 parties and even take a karaoke machine to them. Unlike when politicians doing this, the families don’t seem to mind and for the BBC it is barely relevant.
      5. Nothing must get in the way of conclusions attacking the government and SPADs, and totally exonerating the civil service officials.

      Why don’t they just write up the report now and save us all a lot of time and money?


      • Flotsam says:

        Does anyone know how the Covid inquiry is constituted? Who are the people asking questions? How many of them? What agenda do those people have? Do the people questioned have representation?

        Who is responsible for drafting the report? From what I’ve seen so far it looks like a Civil Service stich up.


        • Sluff says:

          Excellent question Flotsam.
          The room seems to have a great many people doing absolutely nothing apart from staring at small computer screens.
          A very easy task. Any of us could do it. A low skill job. Yet somehow I doubt any of them are on the minimum wage. It’s just another public sector gravy train. The mainly private sector taxpayer will of course be footing the bill for this extravagant largesse.
          I believe the similar enquiry in non-lockdown Sweden is already finished..

            £35k for a mornings work for a scumbag lawyer to be at this hearing. Snouts in the trough come to mind.


            • Scroblene says:

              Absolutely, Sluff and Atlas!

              Why can’t all that money be used to find and prosecute the furlough scammers, get hold of the PPE thieves, and investigate the ‘Nightingale hospital’ debacle which must have cost millions of our money!

              As I mentioned earlier – ahem – nobody really gives a flying f*** about all this posturing by the snivel serpents and a few add-ons from Downing Street, but the public has to pay all the eye-watering costs of such a sham show.

              It’s a disgraceful waste of public money, but of course, the Beeboids wallow in rubbish like that, it saves them having to do any real work reporting important issues.

    You can’t just ignore this. Calling for an Israeli ceasefire is not consequence-free. It’s one of the myriad reasons why insisting people ‘pick a side’ is so crass.

  8. Guest Who says:

    Lots of political journos sharing a MEMRI-tv video today of a Hamas leader’s extremist rhetoric, to disparage the idea of a ceasefire. Comparatively few drawing attention to a Likud MK, and former Minister of Information, calling for Gaza to be erased from the face of the Earth.

    Champion, having attempted a few analogies and ended up a laughing stock, has upped her game to Mishal level….


    At this rate it will soon be only her, Owen, Corbyn, Dr. Shola and JezBo left.

      Transcript from 10m18s

      Trevor Phillips “two officers were sacked this week for having lied about having smelt cannabis on two black athletes Bianca Williams and her partner
      The following day the the public donated £50,000 to support those police officers
      I suspect that black community will feel pretty burnt by that and it feels like you’re not supported in your efforts ”

      Rowley “it’s it’s pretty um it’s pretty unusual what’s going on
      the full um verdict of that hearing isn’t out yet
      um there’s some uh I think some people are confused about it
      because four officers said said they smell cannabis
      the panel I think have believed 2 and disbelieved 2 others
      which we I don’t yet understand the reasons for that
      um the panel also said that there were no findings in relation to anything to do with racism in the case as well
      so I think so so so we see what comes out

    On previous page Tomo posted the Bethnal Green Road flag man video tweeted by
    HenryHill deputy editor of Conservative Home mag

    Hill got a msg from the protected account #JeyyLowe chastised him
    ‘How dare you tweet that it comes via Tommy Robinson’

    Oh dear thought Hill, that’s terrifying so he then deleted the original tweet.

    It’s not like TR was there & made the video, he was just sharing it.


    • maxincony says:

      You have no idea what @JeyyLowe said. Your ‘quote’ is complete fiction.

      Oh dear thought Hill, that’s terrifying so he then deleted the original tweet.

      Nowhere does Hill say he deleted the original tweet because he thought “oh dear, that’s terrifying”. Again, this is complete fiction.

    ‘Danger to life’ warning in this ‘nuclear-level’ portfolio writedown edition

    We awake to witness a veritable arms race of think of the children imagery from our media – rooting for one side or another of this latest middle east bust up.

    Our BBC goes with: Hundreds of foreign nationals and injured leave Gaza as border finally opens – ah, our BBC does love an open border plus that most favoured favourite of BBC imagery – yet more huddled masses with suitcases heading our way: Gaza: Strike in Jabalia leaves massive crater… Moment injured Gaza girl, 5, sees baby sister is alive… and of course, to make it all feel just that bit closer to home: Rafah crossing: First Britons leave Gaza but others face nervous wait

    Well, at least our BBC didn’t employ that obnoxious faux cutesy contraction Brits: Escape From Hell – shrieks the Daily Mirror: Crying in pain, an injured boy becomes one of the first to be allowed to leave Gaza… Some 335 foreign passport holders also crossed to Egypt, including Brits

    First Britons flee Gaza hell – yells the Daily Express: Foreign secretary James Cleverly vows he ‘will not rest’ until every UK national is bought back home

    All the better, the more the merrier departing Gaza for the west – or so the Israelis will be thinking.

    Just a moment, I’m getting a severe case of déjà vu: Foreign Secretary cuts short Pacific trip to deal with Sudan crisis (Independent, April 2023); Sudan: Now is the time for British nationals to move, urges foreign secretary… James Cleverly said… people have been able to reach the airfield north of capital Khartoum “in good order” for evacuation (BBC, April 2023); UK Nationals arriving from Sudan to have access to benefits… From Monday next week those arriving from Sudan, including UK nationals and those with a valid UK immigration status, will be exempt from residency tests to ensure they can access benefits, social housing, and homelessness assistance on arrival in the UK. (Gov.UK, May 2023) – golden ticket, eh?

    Hey, foreign secretary James Cleverly, considering the official Covid-19 Inquiry is this week severely criticising your Tory shower over your crisis preparedness, how about you gather in all the UK passport holders (call them Brits if you must) from all over the globe right now – just to be on the safe side – afterall you never know where it’s going to kick off next.

    But we digress

    The FT joins the media orchestra playing a symphony on the heartstrings for Palestine: Gaza crisis… Egypt lets in first evacuees… Diplomats were aiming for 500 foreign nationals to leave yesterday and 1000 a day from today onwards – so they’re not likely to be sticking around in Egypt for long?

    The Guardian has an image of the same boy as did the Mirror – similarly captioned: A boy cries… (Photograph Abed Zagout/Anadolu/Getty)

    But on the other, albeit heavily outnumbered, hand…

    The Sun retaliates with pictures of Israeli children: Faces of Gaza war hostages… Bring them home – shouts the Sun: 32 innocent children snatched by terrorists. This is why Israel must fight evil of Hamas – careul now, watch out for Met police officers sent to rip those copies of the Sun down from newstands in London – in the interests of community cohesion, of course.

    We interrupt the news to bring you a long range weather forecast

    Rain Storm Mohammed (Britain’s latest entry in the Eurovision storm naming competition) is predicted to score Nul Points in terms of storm deaths – so that’s good news.

    Many a true word is said inadvertantly – and that’s certainly the case in this Guardian top headline: Pandemic hit brain health of over-50s, study finds

    Ah, that old chestnut ‘study finds‘ – up there with ‘report reveals’ and ‘despite’ as media favourite catchphrases.

    Here comes one of mine, Calm Down Sir

    Robbie: I tried to end it all (Take That Daily Mirror)

    Elon Musk and King Charles warn of AI danger (‘i’)

    Covid Inquiry, what inquiry…?

    Having accidentaly stumbled on the most apposite and concise summing up of the so-called pandemic crisis yet to be admitted by our media, the Guardian jumps the shark with this one: Lack of Number10 diversity ‘led to women’s deaths’ – despite, Carrie Johnson running the show?

    The idiom “jumping the shark”… is a pejorative that is used to argue that a creative work or entity has reached a point in which it has exhausted its core intent and is introducing new ideas that are discordant with, or an overexaggeration of, its original purpose (Thank you Wiki – one couldn’t have put it better)

    Anything you can do we can do better says the Times to the Guardian

    ‘Nuclear-level’ bravado led UK towards Covid disaster (Times) – whereas our Ukraine policy is…?

    Predatory Red Arrows pilots treated women as their property… senior aircraftman was found guity of battery for smacking the bottom of a 19-year-old (Times)

    Cue Yakety Sax the Benny Hill Show theme

    Since we’ve entered broad comedy territory

    ‘Can we kill covid by blowing a hairdryer up our hooters?’… Bozo Johnson asked his scientific advisors (You’d think the jokey blokey Daily Star of all titles wouldn’t come over quite so humourless)

    Talking of hot air – the FT has to suck some up

    The world’s largest offshore-wind group has abandoned two projects and announced a higher than expected portfolio writedown, in a blow to Joe Biden’s clean energy drive

    Unsustainable, eh?


  23. JohnC says:

    This is an interesting development:

    Yesterday I posted about the BBC report where this ‘scientist’ had decided to ‘stay behind’ and I suspect make money reporting on it.

    This was the picture the BBC used:

    Today I see they lead the main page with a similar picture but now he has both hands on is head as if he is in great despair – but it’s from exactly the same ‘shoot’.

    So the whole thing has been carefully staged. I tried to find this latest picture with google images – but it seems only the BBC have it. But I did find the original in many other newspapers – and virtually all from anti-Jew Muslim countries.

    This tells me the BBC have the originals and hence they are the ones who organised the phot shoot.

    This is a new development – it seems the BBC are doing a ‘Getty’ and faking emotional ‘agenda’ based pictures with actors in order to support their narrative. This is absolutely dishonest and is not reporting on the facts. It’s faking the facts.

    I wonder what’s next : maybe a doll thrown into the air with the caption ‘Babies blown up by Israel’ ?. It’s only a small step away.

    The BBC have officially entered the ‘fake news’ game. They use to let Getty do it. Their excuse of ‘it captures the sentiment’ does not work for things like this.


    • JohnC says:

      Ah – found the new one on the other arse cheek – The Guardian. What a suprise !.


      You can see by the people in the background it was taken some time after the original which means they were up there for quite a long time taking the pictures. And he has very clearly been made up to look like he has just crawled out of the rubble.

      This one is credited to our old racist friends Getty who we know have absolutely no problem faking situations. And the far-Left news have no problems presenting them as fact.

          The more I think about it, the more significant this new event is:

          They’ve gone from using stock photos as ‘background scene-setters’ to actively using staged photos taken at the scene of current stories.

          The BBC are now pushing fake news. That man is not despairing about what has happened, he is acting for the camera.

        You can see what happens when the Israelis bomb a place. The contrast with the slightly scorched hospital car park is clear, if anyone still does not believe that was caused by a Palestinian rocket.


      • maxincony says:


        You can see by the people in the background it was taken some time after the original which means they were up there for quite a long time taking the pictures.

        Ah, yes… Two photographs, taken all of a couple of minutes apart, with people not remaing completely stationary like they would do in real life which means it’s obviously completely fake because everything I don’t like is fake.

        And if you look closely at the pixels you can tell the buildings in the background have been painted to look like the walls and windows have been blown out and the crater is done with CGI.

        And it’s all because of the BBC because everything I don’t like is because of the BBC because it just is.


        • maxincony says:



          • JohnC says:


            So you deny that whole shoot has been staged by someone working for Getty and a secret photographer has been hiding behind a piece of concrete just 6 feet away snapping pictures of his grief for 10 or 15 minutes at least ?.


            You complete clown. Even by your own standards, you have made an exceptional spiteful far-Left idiot of yourself here tonight.

            Have you been drinking ?. Or something stronger ?. Either way, you haven’t done yourself or your cause any favours at all. Best go straight to bed when you get in on a Thursday from now on.

            I see from my news feed that more pictures from that shoot are appearing across different news sites. What a joke.

            Perhaps if your terrorist friends did not use civilians as human shields maxi, they would not be dead. But you don’t care one bit about that do you ?. You want pictures like this instead where they got bombed.

      I’ll bet my hat there will be plenty of woke Leftists on the TV and radio hijacking the event to mention something historically Muslim related.

  26. JohnC says:

    Just browsing other nespapers and there are quite a few stories about Charles and Camilla in Kenya.

    Here’s a roundup in pictures:

    There are lots of ‘nice’stories such as this:

    ‘King Charles posed for pictures with young people that are taking part in a Prince’s Trust International Enterprise Challenge.’

    Then I did a google search to see what the BBC reported about Charles:

    ‘King Charles says ‘no excuse’ for Kenya colonial violence’
    ‘King Charles Kenya trip: Mau Mau uprising hangs over visit’
    ‘King Charles to acknowledge ‘painful’ Kenya history on state visit’

    That’s it. The old BBC would have glorified the trip to promote Britain on the world stage. The modern BBC want to tear it down and rebuild it with their own socialist agenda. Along with gulags for people like us no doubt.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I’m no royalist – or Charles fan – but such a trip deserves a fair shake – and that BBC coverage is nowhere near fair . But the kidults running news have just read stuff about end of empire as negative as opposed to what reality might be ..l

        I’m with you Fed : I’m not a supporter of any of them, but the alternative is some megalomaniac like Blair as President.

        The Left think they will make the world a better place by forcing their unnatural ideology on everybody. Many have tried and it’s always ended the same way. Hitler was their latest socialist ideology-driven anti-semetic to get absolute power and look where that ended up.

        I still laugh when the far-Left academics write papers trying to prove he was far-Right. All that has happened is that the hypocrites have edited the rule book to distance themselves from him.

    Covid enquiry thought for the day. Huge penny-dropping moment on Toady.

    A brief interview with Prof. David Spiegelhalter (apologies for any miss-spelling). A highly rated statistician who as I recall went against the groupthink occasionally during the pandemic.

    We’ve had two days of sticking the knife into Boris. Clearly not a great leader. But wait. During the pandemic we repeatedly heard mood music that while Boris was all over the place, up in Scotland, wee Krankie herself, Nicola Sturgeon, was wise, assured, staeadfast, clear, etc etc. all the things a good leader should be, yes?

    Therefore with such great leadership surely we might expect that covid had a lower impact (deaths, morbidities, mental health etc) in Scotland than England.

    But actually their results were worse !!!!!!!!
    If Sturgeon’s leadership was so good why were the outcomes so poor? And who is being held to account up there?

    Oh dear. And now, quickly moving on to the sport.


    • Flotsam says:

      Quite. The inquiry is an excercise in trying to be wise after an unprecedented event (in modern times), score settling and political backstabbing, utterly futile and pointless. I wonder if the infamous Sue Gray will be a witness to ensure Labour get a look in. Will the inquiry examine if Smarmer’s idea of locking down longer and harder would have been effective? I doubt it. Smarmer probably thought if he proposed something that wouldn’t happen he could gain an advantage.


    • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

      Krankie is very much on the ropes in Scotland. SNP support has halved in the last 6 months since the First Muslim, sorry Minister was appointed.

    Energy watch on Toady.

    Shell are about to publish their results. Expect the usual socialist mantra against successful companies and calling for a ‘wind’ fall tax. Geddit?

    Meanwhile an interview with a wind power guy. Because of high interest rates and inflation, new wind projects are unaffordable and loss-making, and so have dried up.

    Mmmm. Shell and BP and the the other oil giants, especially btw Saudi Aramco whose profits are never criticised, can cope with high inflation and low interest rates, and in recent years very low oil and gas selling prices. So why can’t wind, whose ‘raw material’ price is constant ie zero?

    That it’s sworn to destroy Israel? That it’s a terrorist group, proscribed both by the United States and the European Union? That it rules Gaza with an iron fist? That it’s killed hundreds of innocent Israelis with rocket, mortar, and suicide attacks?

    But did you also know that Hamas — which is an Arabic acronym for “Islamic Resistance Movement” — would probably not exist today were it not for the Jewish state? That the Israelis helped turn a bunch of fringe Palestinian Islamists in the late 1970s into one of the world’s most notorious militant groups? That Hamas is blowback?

    This isn’t a conspiracy theory. Listen to former Israeli officials such as Brig. Gen. Yitzhak Segev, who was the Israeli military governor in Gaza in the early 1980s. Segev later told a New York Times reporter that he had helped finance the Palestinian Islamist movement as a “counterweight” to the secularists and leftists of the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Fatah party, led by Yasser Arafat (who himself referred to Hamas as “a creature of Israel.”)

    “The Israeli government gave me a budget,” the retired brigadier general confessed, “and the military government gives to the mosques.”

    “Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel’s creation,” Avner Cohen, a former Israeli religious affairs official who worked in Gaza for more than two decades, told the Wall Street Journal in 2009. Back in the mid-1980s, Cohen even wrote an official report to his superiors warning them not to play divide-and-rule in the Occupied Territories, by backing Palestinian Islamists against Palestinian secularists. “I … suggest focusing our efforts on finding ways to break up this monster before this reality jumps in our face,” he wrote.

    “Anyone who wants to thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state has to support bolstering Hamas and transferring money to Hamas,” Netanyahu told his Likud party’s Knesset members in March 2019. “This is part of our strategy”

      Dear Winston Smith of the BBC Historical Corrections Department,

      As I’ve had to look at your BBC news and use other sources to determine that your news is not news but selective editorial opinion I’d like to request that I have a refund for the last 4 years plus get the BBC free from now on.

      Please let me know how I can go about this as I am willing to create a full list of articles that I’ve had to investigate plus time taken for me to check your fact checker whilst realising that the BBC intentionally removes news rather than incorrectly report on it, uses images to sway opinion or misleads with the main titles hoping no one reads the full article.

      ‘Omission is the greatest form of lie.’

      CAS-4987700-SY1FTF : BBC NewsWatch says boredom with pro-Brexit march.

      CAS-4963895-3HKGDN: Tommy Robinson: Are you reporting on him?.

      CAS-4844672-N8FDYY: Update on the MP Expenses 2009 scandal in 2018.

      CAS-4939547-J71Z1V: Here’s hoping Ireland do the right thing G.Lineker.

      CAS-4937378-YKMWBJ: BBC not reporting ‘Day of Freedom’ March 06may2018.

      CAS-4906141-BFJQL0: I take offence that presenters promote their books.

      CAS-4892811-C820SC: I am offended that I have to pay the BBC TV Tax.

      CAS-4824332-633N1P: What happened in Italy was not covered …

      CAS-4933135-ZV3V7F: The omission is the most powerful form of lie …

      CAS-6005141-S1V9D1: Not seen a report on the UK Governments Covid19 

      Let me know how to go about resolving the issue of paying for something that wastes my time as I have to check each story rather than rely on its accuracy.

    Likely a bad time not to be called Khan in media these days.

    When did journalism become a hate crime? GB News’ Charlie Peters has been reported to the police over his investigations into Islamic extremism. This is a blatant attempt to chill press freedom, says Fraser Myers

    Not just in W1A or London.

    When Tony and Mad Al unleashed the diversity rubbing that was quite the uncorked genie.

    Still, all’s quiet on the Ukraine Front. Apparently.

    Medical mafia in the world beating NHS under question after a kid died avoidably and her grieving parents want to have mandatory second opinion …..

    Meesh leads some sort of half hearted interview which went nowhere – but it was mentioned that it’s best not to be in hospital at weekends because they all go home – I’ve witnessed this many times .
    The medical mafia care so much that you might be okay weekdays 8 til 4 but after that and weekends – best of luck –

    Anyway the plan is to demand a second opinion from a separate medical team ….. but … they are all ‘pals ‘ they all stick together and omertà applies … it won’t happen it won’t work – praise the £ medical £ mafia …..

    Don’t forget to clap ….

    Not really BBC

    Today a medical research paper is released called PROTECT which is about dementia . The big story seems to be that memory was adversely affected by the years of the Chinese virus – caused by a mixture of isolation – reduced exercise and booze abuse – amongst other things .

    I was a volunteer for this project – which included taking a tablet each day of either a placebo or a Vitamin D tablet to assess long term affect – I think this has been going for 5 years or more .

    Anyway – back to dementia – which I’ve seen first hand . I’m not a great one for exercise – but brain stimulation is – I think – key . So I took some advice about keeping my brain sharp . I was surprised that I was advised to use online games to stay sharp – so every day I play ‘shooting ‘ type games which I think helps reaction time – concentration – and ‘the mind ‘… and Definately better than sitting in front of the TV ….

    259. It is clear to the Committee that there have been fundamental failings in the manner in
    which HASSAN’s case was dealt with by the Home Office, CTP and Surrey County Council.
    The litany of errors that resulted in HASSAN’s attack-planning passing unnoticed, despite his
    participation in the Channel programme, highlights deep-rooted issues in the administration of
    the Prevent strand of CONTEST.
    260. The Committee notes here a number of questions about HASSAN’s case:
    (i) Why, despite HASSAN’s revelations to authorities of his interactions with Daesh,
    was support from a Home Office-approved Intervention Provider271 not requested?
    (ii) Why did the Channel panel ignore his ongoing mental health issues and instances
    of going missing from foster care, even when these issues were raised by a member
    of the panel?
    (iii) Why did the panel not have, or request, information relating to HASSAN’s asylum
    application – particularly when it was noted that the process was causing HASSAN
    (iv) Why, despite HASSAN being under the care of Surrey County Council Children’s
    Services, were they not in attendance or providing adequate reporting to the panel?

    Here is a view from the USA “The Hill” which is regarded by both Demonrat and republican as Left leaning.

    Why am I posting this? Because it is indicative of what Bidens normal supporters are thinking about the Israel Hamas conflict, and how corruption in the US political system is leading to an enormous disconnect between the representatives of the people, and the people, and that the elites in Washington are instead now representing those prepared to give them money and disregarding the ordinary people.

      1985 … Ahmadis suffer vicious persecution around the world. The main source of fuel for that persecution is in Pakistan, but what happens in Pakistan does not stay in Pakistan.

      I know that from my experience in the Yorkshire market town of Batley. In August 1985, when I was 11 years old, my parents organised an inter-faith meeting in the town hall. It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police,

      more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country.

      The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.

      This should be a wakeup call to the Left that their multicultural society experiment has utterly failed.

      We have this unbelievable level of disrespect for our history from the Muslims and black drug gangs have turned parts of Londinistan into the third world.

      They do not integrate and they never will. It’s time to stop all this appeasement and reverse-racism to try and bribe them to like us and use the full force of the law as it would be against white people.

      That time plod took the knee to BLM thugs to try and prevent them getting even more violent was as shameful a moment as our country has ever witnessed.
