    Suella Braverman: Shapps won’t back home secretary’s language on policing

    ‘Grant Shapps is the latest cabinet minister to distance himself from the home secretary’s choice of words, after she criticised police ahead of Saturday’s pro-Palestinian rally.’

    ‘Mr Shapps said it was “proper” for the home secretary to debate the issue, but he “wouldn’t use that set of words”.’

    So he agrees with what she said but says he would have worded it differently ???.

    So the BBC are running a main-page headline over someone agreeing the principle but not the wording ???.

    This is beyond ridiculous. I said the BBC would keep running headlines until she is gone and this one shows just how desperate they are. And it also shows their absolute disregard for their obligation to be fair and impartial.

    We must get rid of these vile left-wing activists.

    Here’s the author:

    Scottish and previously worked for The Daily Mirror. No surprise there then.

    What a total farce the BBC have become.

      Ya think?

      Hamas hides its military targets among civilians and brags about it.
      Israel points this out.
      BBC: Isn’t it rather CONVENIENT that when you hit civilians, it’s because you’re targeting military targets, hmmmmmmm??????
      Gawd, the utter immorality and idiocy of these people.

        US aircraft hit a Red Crescent maternity hospital in Baghdad, the city’s trade fair, and other civilian buildings today, killing several people and wounding at least 25, hospital sources and a Reuters witness said.

        The attacks occurred at 9.30am (0630 BST) and caught motorists by surprise as they ventured out during a lull in the bombing. At least five cars were crushed and their drivers burned to death inside, Reuters correspondent Samia Nakhoul said.


        The news comes a day after another report found Corbyn had visited Hamas members during a 2010 trip to Israel and the West Bank, but did not meet with a single Jew.

    Up until quite late this morning the Daily Mail was leading with the story that the Met Police were claiming that Suella’s article had caused policing of the saintly mob more difficult. Suddenly the story has changed, several different headlines throughout the day suggesting those attending the pro Hamas march were not as sweet and innocent as had first been reported and that the police had cosied up to the pro Hamas participants and aimed their wrath at those who had wanted to pay their respects at the cenotaph or openly supported Israel. Wasn’t that just what Suella had asked for, for the police to be evenhanded?

    Bronzed Strumpet reposts Pesto.

    The Times of Israel reports that the Israeli government wants Tony Blair as “Gaza humanitarian coordinator”. It is credible they would want him. But I cannot see him doing it unless there is a prospect of reducing the suffering, which requires a good deal of prior progress.

    #Ccbgb They clearly have no idea how despised they are, but citing Bliar as saviour…?


  11. BigBrotherCorporation says:

    I’ve been trying to get my head around what has gone on since the 7th Oct.

    On that day, I clearly read in the news, and saw videos of some of the most vile acts I’ve ever seen enacted, en masse, by human beings. Frankly, it was horrific, and I don’t use the term lightly, it was Medieval, savage, entirely intended to cause pain and suffering to innocent people (including children), and it did. Anyone involved in that kind of raping, killing, kidnapping rampage would normally be hunted down by the police and public enemy no.1. Netfliz would be making series about them, and their name would be up there with the likes of serial killers and Wayne Couzens.

    Up until that point in time my sympathies re: the Israel-Palestine conflict was generally on the side of the Palestinians – perhaps because they were so clearly the underdog, and I have seen some examples of Israeli arrogance and callousness, which seemed to me to, more or less, balance out the odd ‘incursions’ and random rocket launching on the part of the Palestinians. I didn’t see it as our business.

    What happened on the 7th Oct was so clear cut though, there was no way, in my mind, any reasonable person could not respond with violence against the perpetrators.

    Then we come to the issue of the people responsible for these vile acts being Hamas, elected by, and hiding underneath (rather than just behind) the population of Gaza.

    The Israelis made it clear they are going to deal with Hamas – right response in my opinion (how can anyone think otherwise?), and gave the civilians plenty of warning to get out of the way – which seemed honourable and fair to me, far, far more than had been shown in reverse.

    Then all hell breaks loose, we have people marching in the streets – not in Beirut, but here in the UK – waving flags, shouting terrorist slogans, bullying people in the street, tearing down posters of kidnapped children, assaulting and terrifying British Jews (what’s it to do with them what Israel do?), defacing monuments, and generally being threatening and annoying.

    And what do the authorities do about it?! Just encourage them, and arrest anyone who dares publicly disagree.

    Any children and innocent people killed in Gaza are on Hamas’ heads – they created this! Why aren’t people protesting about Hamas?!! Instead, they’re publicly supporting them – it’s almost unbelievable.

    Any ‘trouble’ this weekend (and the wrecking of Remembrance Day) are entirely on the authorities in this country – the PM, the Government, Labour, the Met Police, the Mayor of London(!) If they’d nipped this in the bud, as any sane person would have done, it would never have escalated to where it is.

    The only person in government who is speaking out about this, and who I agree with looks like she’s going to be sacked – after a vile hate campaign, led by no other than the BBC – you could NOT make this up! Am I going mad?


  12. Sluff says:

    Back in 1984 the police fought to allow miners to get to work, crossing picket lines and violent, threatening strikers.

    How times change.
    Now the police stand there, protecting pink boats. They take the knee. They uphold the rights of Just Stop Oil against ordinary citizens’ right to go about their business.
    They police pro-Palestinian demonstrations but allow protesters to sit-in at mainline railway stations. They do nothing when thousands of people cannot catch their train.
    Yvette Cooper supports them. Police support now comes from Labour. A big change from 1984.

    And yet when Suella calls them out, she is accused of pandering to extremists.

    That’s how low we have sunk.
    This inversion of the meaning of ‘Policing’ hreminds me of the Orwellian Ministry of Truth.

    Maybe not so big a change from 1984 after all.


  13. Sluff says:

    It was suggested to me the other day that, in terms of proper Islam, the Koran cannot be translated. Only the original language version is truly acceptable. And the original came from the unsubstantiated word of one man.
    But many Muslims e.g. in the UK cannot read Arabic. Therefore they do not read the Koran. Rather they hear about an interpretation of it via the local Imam. He can put whatever take he wants on it. We can guess what that means.

    The parallel is with the English church in, say, the 1300s. The bible, albeit created through many scholars and with much basis in historical fact, was in Latin. The ordinary person could not understand Latin so only had the word of the local priest to go on.
    Look at the furore when Tyndall translated it into English. The then Catholic Church did not like the challenge. Tyndall was executed at the age of 40.

    Thus Islam is like Catholicism in the 14 th century.
    600 years behind the times and whose leaders have a lot of power and thus a lot to answer for.

  15. TrickCyclist says:

    A bit OT but I was watching some of the movie Scrooged (1988) on Film4 earlier and noticed that in the scenes set in a black woman’s family apartment – the equivalent of the Bob Cratchit character – a poster of Keith Haring’s ‘Free South Africa’ was displayed on the wall. Such anti-apartheid sentiments were common in art, movies, music and TV back then.
    Haring seemed to be calling for the end of apartheid by violent means, with the black majority (with a noose around it’s neck) crushing the white minority (whose guilt – or elimination? – is marked with a red X).
    Since this is pretty much what has happened since, does anybody really think that anti-Israel propaganda is just trendy, harmless posturing?



    • vlad says:

      South Africa is now a basket case of corruption, poverty and violence. The anti-apartheid movement never cared about blacks, only about hating whites.

      Where is their concern for all the black on black violence and even genocide going on in so many African countries?


      • atlas_shrugged says:

        A black in South Africa may work hard – for example as a chef. But when he does and he travels home to his township on the weekend he gets mugged and robbed by his own people. So bad are his injuries that he can no longer work.

        The popular restaurant where he worked then closes for food. Absolute equality is achieved when everybody’s earnings are zero.

    “STEPHEN POLLARD: The pro-Palestine protest on Armistice Day must have been the largest anti-Semitic demonstration in British history… but the BBC turned a blind eye.

    Jewish families being ‘targeted’ by pro-Palestinian activists with green smoke bombs who hurl abuse at them as they leave the synagogue.

    Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove forced to call on a police escort to get home as anti-Israel protesters threaten him in a train station. Four police officers injured after demonstrators throw fireworks at them.

    Then there are the posters and banners of hate – the Star of David intertwined with a swastika, President Biden caricatured as a devil-horned Jew, a snake in the colours of Israel strangling the world – and so on.

    And I haven’t even got on to the graffiti saying ‘Gaza A Real Holocaust’, or the woman videoed calling for ‘Death to all Jews’ or even the marchers decked in Hamas headbands.

    To my mind, the Armistice Day pro-Palestine protest – with its reported 300,000 marchers and default chant of with ‘From the river to the sea’, which calls for the elimination of Israel and its 9.7 million population – must have been the largest anti-Semitic demonstration in British history.

    Yet listen to our national broadcaster, the BBC, and it was nothing more than a fun, uplifting family day out.

    In her report, BBC reporter Frances Reid informed viewers that, ‘there have just been people peacefully protesting… it has been more of a family feel throughout the day’.

    Just in case viewers didn’t get the message that the march was A GOOD THING, Ms Reid told us that she had seen a placard reading: ‘Peace for Palestine, peace for Israel, peace for the world’.

    Oh yes, it was all so very kumbaya. She went on: ‘That’s what people here wanted to do. They wanted to mark Armistice Day as well: some people were wearing poppies as well as carrying Palestinian flags.

    ‘I think that was what they wanted to get across, that they wanted it to be a peaceful demonstration.’

    It’s a strange definition of a peaceful demonstration that is the largest gathering of anti-Semites in British history. But each to their own.

    The BBC wasn’t alone. Channel 4 News posted on social media that ‘after being branded ‘hate marchers’ by the Home Secretary, a massive pro-Palestinian protest passed off peacefully, with hundreds of thousands in attendance. The only scuffles on the day involved far-Right protesters who clashed with police’. After ridicule on social media, Channel 4 deleted the post.

    For both news organisations, the appalling violence from a few hundred loathsome far-Right thugs provided the perfect excuse to ignore what was actually happening on a march that meant countless Jews were too terrified to go into central London.”

      The frightening lengths they go to in order to stop Trump makes me wonder if the shadowy powers that be that are now controlling the White House can afford to let democracy take place in 2024.

    Article by Melanie Phillips.

    (Links to images are not working.)


    The picture above was taken at Saturday’s pro-terrorism demonstration in London, which unleashed frenzied attacks across the capital upon Jews and others who support Israel’s defence against genocide, as well as those who wished to commemorate those who gave their lives to defend Britain in two world wars. The picture is a vignette of Britain’s tragic surrender of civilisation to barbarism. Two Metropolitan police officers, smiling benignly, pose for a selfie with a child dressed as a Palestinian terrorist.

    The corruption of Britain embraces the corruption of innocence and a symbol of genocidal Jew-hatred.

    At the same time, wrote Allison Pearson in the Telegraph, when a group of Israel supporters at that demonstration asked a couple of officers to pose with their group, the police turned this offer down.

    After Saturday’s shocking events, how can anyone possibly say the Home Secretary Suella Braverman was wrong to call these demonstrations “hate marches” which should not be allowed to take place?

    The following are links to other vignettes you may have missed because, while a full-scale civilisational emergency has been erupting in London, the mainstream media has been concentrating instead on demonising Israel with Hamas propaganda.

    Here, a Muslim mob invade a Pret a Manger cafe and demand that any Israel donors there must leave;

    Here, a protester telling the truth about Hamas is assaulted — reportedly with a knife — by Hamas supporters;

    Here, poppy sellers at Victoria station are forced to move;

    Here, a woman at Victoria station is left in tears after she and her husband are confronted by a demonstrator over wearing poppy lapel pins;

    Here, red paint has been thrown at a London house whose mezuzah on the front door identifies its occupants as Jews;

    Here, a young woman aggressively asks “Are you a Jew” on a London bus;

    Here, demonstrators shout “Death to all Jews” at Victoria station;

    Here, abuse is screamed outside a synagogue on the Jewish Sabbath, November 11;

    Here, an Israel government spokesman pushes back effectively (when he can get a word in ) against a BBC interviewer smouldering with contempt, hostility and malevolent bias against Israel.

    And although this is from Gaza itself, here is a Gazan civilian fleeing down an IDF-provided humanitarian corridor to the south telling a truth that the BBC and other Hamas apologists are so desperately trying to deny:

    The Arabs betrayed us, the Jews are kind to us.

    The country’s authoritarian government does not support the right to freedom of assembly. But around a fortnight ago, Egypt’s government, headed by President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, allowed pro-Palestinian demonstrations to proceed under strict conditions and in certain locations.

    Since the October 7 attacks on Israel by the Islamist militant group Hamas in which, according to the country’s foreign ministry, around 1,200 Israelis died, Israel has been bombing the Gaza Strip. Over 11,000 Palestinians have been killed, according to Gaza’s health authorities, which are run by Hamas.

    Some of Egypt’s protests were clearly state-sponsored, observers said, noting that demonstrators were bussed in and chanted in support of el-Sissi as well as the Palestinian Territories. But others were more organic — and some of them went rogue.

    Was Braverman sacked for speaking the truth ?
    Is Macaron Cameron heading back to get us back in to the EU?
    Are the Tories shooting themselves in the foot ?
    Anyone got a clue ?

    Then the only answer must be to vote for the old BREXIT Party ie. UKIP or Reform UK.

    RE Taffman:

    Yes, of course look at the following, which acknowledges the “hate march”:

    “Mr Sunak is preparing a new five-point plan to allow the police to prohibit provocative chants as a condition of allowing the now-weekly pro-Palestine protests to go ahead, and to take into account the “cumulative effect” of weeks of marches when deciding to ban a protest.

    The news comes after Lord Walney, the Government’s independent advisor on political violence and disruption, said the “explosion of attacks on Jews in the UK since 7 October is a national emergency”.



    • MarkyMark says:

      ” five-point plan to allow the police to prohibit provocative chants ”

      The Five Pillars consist of:

      Shahadah: sincerely reciting the Muslim profession of faith
      Salat: performing ritual prayers in the proper way five times each day
      Zakat: paying an alms (or charity) tax to benefit the poor and the needy
      Sawm: fasting during the month of Ramadan
      Hajj: pilgrimage to Mecca



    • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

      In answer to Zephir re Sunaks proposed get tough measures.

      That sounds like, “We’ll form a committee to look into it over time.
      We don’t want to upset anybody, but we may have to take the ultimate step of banning a few placards now and again.”

      Yeah that’ll fix it.!

      (Am I being too harsh?)


    • taffman says:

      I have a feeling that Braverman will jump ship and join Reform UK.
      Wishful thinking ?


      • Up2snuff says:

        taffman, it would help Reform to have an MP and it would give them a higher profile. Would other members of the House of the Conservative Party resign and do the same? They would probably be accused by the Far Left BBC of being Far Right MPs but if a sizeable number left the Conservatives it might make Reform UK the third largest political Party in the House.


  36. Zephir says:

    “In a meeting with Sir Mark Rowley this week, the Prime Minister is expected to demand answers on why more arrests of pro-Palestine protesters weren’t made.

    145 people were arrested by the Met on Saturday, but they largely consisted of far-right counter-protesters.

    After the protest, the Met posted a number of photographs of antisemitic pro-Palestine protesters on their social media feed, asking the public for help identifying them.

    The police also failed to act against repeat chants of “from the river to the sea”, a slogan used by pro-Palestinian protesters to call for the obliteration of the state of Israel.”


    • vlad says:

      @Zephir – “After the protest, the Met posted a number of photographs of antisemitic pro-Palestine protesters on their social media feed, asking the public for help identifying them.”

      Images like the one below, perhaps, knowing full well they will never be identified?

      Even without masks, their chums would never shop them.

      Anyway, that’s no way to police. Justice has to be seen to be done, and done on-the-spot.

      Notice: the police had no problem arresting dozens of counter-protestors immediately.



    • Up2snuff says:

      Zephir, the Sunday Express yesterday accepted without question that a black masked, black balaclava wearing demonstrator was a Far Right protestor/demonstrator.

      How did they know? Did they ask him or her?

    Suella Braverman sacked as home secretary

    What a complete and absolute disgrace. The Tories are finished now. I was waiting for Sunak to show his hand and now he did.

    And the BBC get rid of another minister who is too right-wing for them. An even bigger disgrace. OFCOM should be in front of ministers answering questions.

    Let’s hope this is far from over.

      Sacking of Sweller is a victory for the BBC. What next? Tightening up of controls over criticism of the BBC?


      • Scroblene says:

        It’s disgraceful that Sunka has sacked one of the best Home Secretaries we’ve ever had!

        If he’d supported her as he should have done, he’d have at least caused a draw and retained some respect amongst normal British citizens. But he hasn’t and he’s the loser for it.

        Now that the BBC are firmly entrenched as the political wing of the Labour Party and the manic Far Left, I suppose there’ll never ever be a cessation of the TV tax now!

        I don’t pay it anyway, so sod them!


        • JohnC says:

          I have a feeling the BBC will not be opening these articles for HYS as they haven’t been able to drum up the hate like they did for Boris.

          Mind you, they have the far-Left troll farm now. They would swamp it with childish spite and upticks to keep the real comments buried.

          Each time the BBC have a victory like this, they become a little bolder because they know they will get away with it.

    TOADY Watch #1 – much joy in the TOADY studio with Mishal and Chris Mason over Braverman’s sacking

    I wonder how long it will be for the MSM, including the BBC, together with the Labour Party to portray Rishi Sunak as weak for sacking Suella Braverman as Home Secretary? The BBC ‘like’ Michelle Donelan MP for the job of Home Secretary. Is that because they think they can control her?


  41. digg says:

    Big grins and probably bubbly all round at the BBC, Braverman sacked…..

    Then Cameron comes out if the woodwork….

    We will be back in the corrupt EU within 2 years and then probably as a junior partner on survival rations for years…

    This has been the plan all along since they plotted to dump Johnson…

    Meanwhile Cameron will be in line for a plum EU non-elected sinecure.

    Blue tongue edition

    On the news subject our BBC categorises as the Israel-Gaza War on their latest and most prominent online news page major subject tab (this from the people who brought you such familiar weighty and long-lived tabs as Cost of Living, War in Ukraine (fast approaching its sell-by date?) and the late great Coronavirus) – this relative newbie Israel-Gaza War having also rather hogged the BBC news Home page as top headline story almost uniformly for the past month.

    There’s something we need to bear in mind. When Hamas planned their raid into Israeli territory on the 7th October, they will have been perfectly aware of the eye-for-an-eye Israeli military policy when provoked. There’s no ‘Don’t look back in anger’ ‘kumbaya’ scenario in the Israeli military text books. And provocation was the very point of the Hamas attack, was it not? We knew Israeli retaliation was coming because it is common sense from long past experience and we know Hamas knew this and we know they will obviously have planned for it because they took so many hostages back with them into Gaza.

    The very point of the Hamas attack plan is now being played out – the Israeli hot pursuit of the terrorists back into Gaza – or rather how that pursuit plays out in the western liberal media.

    Our BBC loves an NHS under pressure report.

    Hospitals under pressure in Gaza is doubly grist to their mill

    Gaza’s main hospital uncontactable as second hospital says it is out of fuel (BBC)

    World Health Organization says Gaza’s main hospital no longer functioning (BBC)

    And previously on the BBC channel: Firing outside Gaza hospitals, with patients and staff trapped inside (BBC, 4 days ago)

    Hundreds feared dead at Gaza hospital as Israel denies strike (BBC, 16 October)

    Hospital blast in Gaza City kills hundreds – health officials (BBC, 18 October)

    Gaza hospital: What video, pictures and other evidence tell us about Al-Ahli hospital blast (BBC, 19 October)

    To say that hospitals are something of an obsession is something of an understatement. Not the fire station, not the police station, not the mosques – oddly. Just the hospitals.

    No power, no water and little hope in Gaza hospital – frets the BBC’s alter ego the ultra liberal Guardian

    Washington warns Israel not to attack Gaza hospitals – demands the liberal corporate globalist FT

    Meanwhile the hypochondriac ‘i’ newspaper worries over: Dairy farmers on alert as bluetongue virus detected for first time in 16 years

    Yep, our poor Suella had a sudden attack of the blue tongue – and look what happened to her – they had to put her down – just in case the outbreak spread within the herd.

    How does Cameron become a minister if he’s not an MP?
    You may wonder how it’s possible for David Cameron to become a secretary of state when he’s no longer an MP.

    In short, he’d have to be sworn into the House of Lords – the upper house of the UK Parliament – as a matter of urgency.

    A former prime minister has re-entered government before.

    Alec Douglas-Home – Conservative PM from 1963 to 1964 – came back as Ted Heath’s foreign secretary, serving from 1970 to 1974. He, though, was an MP when returning to government

    Talk about shooting the messenger.

    The mendacious Left lied that Braverman’s statements somehow triggered the counter-protests, and Sunak caved.

    Labour, Khunt and the BBC must be celebrating.
