    Bet you all thought Michael Howard was dead…..but they’ve disinterred him from the crypt and he’s back.

    Howard writes a hit-piece on Braverman in the Telegraph and he gets a phone call from Today to appear on the show on the prime-time slot of 08:10.

    Robinson got the gig to hold his feet to the fire and really go to town on him about his views in the usual hostile, aggressive and arrogant manner we’re all used to seeing from Robinson.

    Howard needn’t have worried, it was all very friendly and non-confrontational….Robinson punted a few questions….Braverman thinks this, she thinks that, she does this…what do you think? ‘Oh really….that’s lovely’ as Howard slips in the knife and does a bit of political assassinating.

    Of course that was why he was brought on and Nick Robinson was not going to stop him or indeed challenge a word he said.

    Classic BBC….don’t do the hit-job yourself, just wheel in a useful idiot to do it for you just as they had Matthew Parris do a write up on Theresa May on Newsnight during the 2017 election knowing full well he was a hardcore remainer who hated her…and he didn’t disappoint…he gave her a right battering…unlike the opposite person brought in to talk about Corbyn….painting a fantastical portrait of Corbyn as a principled and honourable man, a man who has never given support to terrorists, a man who has not sat back as anti-Semitism ran riot under his reign, a man whose economic policies are not fantastical nonsense that would bankrupt us, a man who has supported anti-terrorism legislation with enthusiasm, a man who doesn’t have a deeply held attachment to Marxism, a man who doesn’t surround himself with people who do support terrorism, are anti-Semitic, who do have intentions to wreck the economy and destabilise society and who are so ideologically driven that implementing their political dogmas comes before everything else regardless of the effect on ‘the people’ [as with Labour’s secret mass immigration policy]….and of course are completely incompetent and unfit to run a whelk stall let alone a government.

    BBC…the enemy of Democracy.

    “A man who was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter over the death of ice hockey player Adam Johnson has been released on police bail.

    The Nottingham Panthers player’s neck was injured by a skate during a collision with Sheffield Steelers’ Matt Petgrave on 28 October.”


    The other player kung fu kicked him, slicing his throat.

    Matt Petgrave the most penalised player in the league.


    • moggiemoo says:

      I said at the time that the player should have been arrested immediately for manslaughter, at the very least. It only took the police nearly 3 weeks to notice a crime ‘may’ have been committed. So, a pretty quick response by them.

    LOL….how many times does the BBC get it wrong? They’re just too eager to see the worst in the Israelis…and then condemn them worldwide……how could they get it wrong?…it’s highly unlikely that the Israelis were ‘targeting medical teams and Arab speakers’…and yet no-one thought twice about reporting this at the ‘fact=checking’ BBC….


    • Foscari says:

      Pugnazious- Friends and relations , Jewish Cristian,
      Hindu and atheist ask me if I think the BBC is
      I am sure that many are not. BUT I very much believe
      that any news reports about Israel from the BBC
      come from a corbinysta stand point.
      From not calling them a terrorist organization which
      Jeremy Corbyn refused to do , numerous times . Whilst
      being interviewed by Piers Morgan. To this latest “apology”
      which you report on.
      Many other news outlets are showing pictures of medical
      equipment being delivered to the Al-Shifa by the Israelis .
      This was known about yesterday. But the BBC’S number one
      aim in this conflict is to take the side of Hamas. And I
      am afraid I am going to tell you a dirty little secret. At
      least 80% of the Palestinians in Gaza support Hamas
      as well. And took absolute please in the deaths of mostly
      left wing Israeli peaceniks .

    • MarkyMark says:

      Leaving the undemocratic EU was just
      the beginning. People’s eyes have been
      opened as to the benefits of being an
      independent sovereign nation. Reform is
      now possible and essential in these key

      1. Reform our Economy:

      To succeed faster growth is vital. Higher
      growth rates are the only way to better
      wages and more tax revenues that can be
      invested in better healthcare and other
      public services. Our bold economic vision
      frees up over 6 million people from paying
      Income Tax and frees up over 1.2 million
      small businesses and self-employed from
      paying Corporation Tax. We would also
      aim to remove a raft of other stifling taxes
      in a responsible, timely way. This will
      generate much faster growth than seen
      in recent decades. We must also stop
      wasting taxpayers’ money.

      2. Reform our Public Sector:

      We must be ambitious, seeking faster,
      more efficient public services that work
      better for us all. For example, with health,
      we should demand zero waiting lists and
      we have a bold plan to achieve this vision.
      Our police need to focus on preventing
      crime and catching criminals. Our schools
      must educate our children properly
      to prepare them for a competitive,
      challenging world, whilst protecting them
      from age inappropriate sex education and
      gender questioning. Our Border Force
      must protect our borders.

      3. Reform our Energy Strategy:

      We all care about the environment and
      want cleaner air, and we can do this
      in a strategic, affordable way. Yet the
      Westminster Net Zero plan is making
      us all net poorer whilst creating more
      emissions overall as it outsources them
      overseas. It is therefore net stupid. It
      is adding huge extra costs to us all as
      consumers and to our businesses. This
      will send hundreds of thousands of British
      jobs to China and elsewhere. Our energy
      plan will use our own energy treasure
      under our feet, and create thousands
      of British jobs, by making our industries
      competitive again. It will save consumers
      considerable amounts of money on their
      bills every year. We would also nationalise
      50% of key utility companies to stop
      consumers being ripped off with the other
      50% being owned by British pension
      funds for British pensioners.
      4. Reform our Institutions:
      Major change is needed to the bodies that
      impact our lives — the unelected cronyism
      of the House of Lords, the unaccountable
      civil service and the bloated BBC. Reform
      is essential to our voting system so it is
      fairer and more representative; the twoparty system embeds the status quo and
      prevents real change.



  8. Sluff says:

    It’s official, if unsurprising.

    The left wing judiciary support mass open door immigration.
    The government is not allowed to protect our borders.
    Anyone from anywhere must be allowed in at any time.

    This policy can be guaranteed to be supported by

    The judges
    Large numbers of litigation lawyers
    Stop the War coalition
    Socialist Workers party
    Palestine Solidarity Campaign
    Refugee Council
    The Labour Party
    The LibDems
    The SNP
    The BBC

    And is opposed only by the declining but still majority of ordinary white British citizens.
    Who pay for it all. But don’t count. Obviously.


    • StewGreen says:

      The status quo should be that you CLOSE the borders to illegals first, then the courts discuss
      Not that you leave them open for years whilst the courts talk

      Currently they are protecting the rights of the illegals
      not the right of the UK citizens.

    “ooh ooh Suella removing urban tents is far right evil”
    shouted the media on Friday , yet on that same day Met Police removed a tent settlement from in front of a London hospital.
    I have not seen that reported in MSM.

    Section 35 Dispersal Order near hospital entrance in Huntley Street, NW1

    Met officers worked with University College London Hospitals and other partners on Friday, 10 November, in response to concerns about approximately ten tents near the entrance to the hospital in Huntley Street, NW1.

    The hospital’s security team had requested the assistance of police. This action was necessary due to the hospital’s concerns for patient welfare. The tents were on private land close to the hospital entrance and had been at the location for up to nine months.

      The Supreme Court judgement?

      All very much in line with my expectations. All going according to the joint plan which broadly/overall, was designed to ferry in millions of “Refugees” unrestricted. “Every little helps” goes the Tesco ad. I imagine Rich Sunak agreed with Starmer a condition to be able to leave his premiership roughly showing he has, ‘Done his best’ in the ‘stop the boats’ & ‘reduce immigration’ game he set up with Starmer. Just enough to hand the baton over to Starmer and become part of the House of Lords and leaving the majority of the Country apparently thinking there’s nothing that can be done to stop the criminals and others. Then, all hell will be set loose by Starmer. The next stage of the plan. The objective being to destroy the UK with their plans for eradicating the UK “Racist” ‘whitey’. Soros will be pleased that his ECHR played a modest role in the plan leading to today’s announcement by simply being there if need be to render a final decision if required.


      • digg says:

        Those five “judges” are probably smirking about squashing the Rwanda plan.

        The key objections to the plan revolved around the safety of the illegal immigrants sent there.

        OK this ignores the fact that the plan was designed more to halt the flow of illegal immigrants making the channel crossing than to despose of existing illegals.

        So the judges have more than likely encouraged even more raiders, some of whom will be lost in rough seas and hence will probably cause more harm overall than Rwanda ever could in their lives.

        What happens if the invaders now decide to cross in increasing droves but run into a particularly violent spell of winter weather whilst attempting the crossing and multiple lives are lost?

        Will the blame go entirely to our Government or will these judges in a way be implicated in their deaths by encouraging them to go for it?

    Wolverhampton: Two boys, 12, arrested over stab murder of man


    He was stabbed by 12 year old boys FFS !!!.

    Yet another short, facts only report from the BBC. No sense of outrage or questions about how can certain parts of society be so broken for this to happen so often.

    Because they don’t care who did it if they aren’t white males. It’s not helpful for the agenda.

    Proof (if it were needed) is the lengthy article they ran earlier this month just because 8 years ago, someone under suspicion for being part of it inferred he was involved with the murder to a black security guard.

    And he died 2 years ago so the story is absolutely pointless. Unless the BBC want to dig him up and call him a racist.

    Matthew White: Stephen Lawrence suspect said he had killed before in second attack

    The lop-sided BBC reporting to suit their agenda is just ridiculous. They really don’t care one bit about the person who got murdered.

  18. friend of yogi bear says:

    What I find very puzzling about the Supreme Court ruling is the failure of the BBC to pick up on the undercurrent of racism inherent in some of its wording. It’s almost as if there’s a suggestion that Africans ( Rwandans)might not do things correctly.
    It’s all very disappointing that nobody at the BBC is onto this.
    It’s not long ago that there own travel website hailed Rwanda as a model state in Africa , describing it as the Switzerland of that continent, granted that was removed way back when the policy of removal to this hitherto paradise was first announced,but it is all so confusing. The big question must surely be “Are our African brothers and Sisters as good as us or not?”.
    I deplore the thought that Rwandans can’t get things done properly and they might make mistakes in applying the law.


  19. StewGreen says:

  24. Thoughtful says:

    I am bemused by the Daily Mails continuing alomst daily attacks on trannies, the latest one being a crazed woman pool player who refused to play against some trans woman, on the basis that it was unfair. It begs the question as to how it is unfair?

    I understand the argument in physical sports that women are inferior to men in terms of physical strength, although certain feminists who swear this is not the case and that there should only be ‘sport’.

    But can anyone tell me what kind of advantage a man or a trannie is supposed to have at the pool table? Maybe if the individual was taller, it might be an advantage at a 16′ snooker table, but not an 8′ pool table! Besides which there are plenty of tall women around anyway and we don’t have a competition for the vertically challenged!

    Where does this end? Are women judged so inferior that they cannot be expected to compete in cerebral sports too? Maybe it is unthinkable to expect a woman to play chess against a man because she is not as clever? Or maybe card games too?

    The reality in my mind is that women and men are not equal, but there are arenas where any inequality perhaps comes down more to the individual and not their sex.

    I cannot believe that men have an inate advantage at board or card games nor at the pool table either.


    • Zephir says:

      Quite possibly a disadvantage having two more balls


    • Kaiser says:

      Ive always thought we could kill many birds (snark) with one stone here and make all sports open to either sex for a few years and see the real results

      no quotas or other such nonsense

      I suspect most female athletes and sportswomen would be basically out of the medals / job /money very quickly.

      I would be interested to see where this MAN ranked in the male game , it certainly seems to have been very successful in the ladies



    • Loobyloo says:

      In the DT article it explained the difference – men have more upper body strength to make the break. Fair enough. More pertinent though, don’t make a women’s competition and then let men enter it on the basis that they think they’re women.


      • Thoughtful says:

        That’s not the point I was making Loobyloo. It’s the question as to why if this womans wholly illogical actions are reasonable, then women are inferior to men, and the feminazis cannot claim any kind of equality.
        The second questioin takes it a little further asking what other ‘games’ are women inferior at?

        I happen to believe there is a point to the physical sports, but I can’t see the point where games which have no physical component are concerned.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      In general, men have a greater sense of spatial awareness than women, it’s an evolutionary tract that helps in hunting etc. It gives men an advantage in sports such as pool. In the case of chess, again speaking generally, men have an advantage in terns of visualising the outcome several moves ahead, which is why you don’t tend to get female grand masters. In card games, such as bridge, you wouldn’t expect any differences between the sexes.


    • BRISSLES says:

      In essence I agree with you where certain sports are concerned. Darts for example – back in the day I was good enough with 3 arrers to be asked to play in a couple of local teams where I was the only woman. BUT it was unheard of for a bloke to join a team of girly dart players even though no strength is involved. I did feel sorry though for the chap picked to play me, for the stick he’d get when (not if 🙂 ) I beat him.


  25. Thoughtful says:

    I see that the Supreme Court has struck down the ridiculous Rwanda scheme just as the Tories intended.

    It’s just another scam folks! Suella Braverman playing to the gallery of her party using taxpayer money to set up an unfeasable scheme, which she attempted to keep quiet on the details, whilst at the same time behind everyones backs handing taxpayers money to “refugee action” charity to challenge the policy in the courts all the while wanting it to fail.

    This is deceptive politics at its best! The half crazed right of the party blame the judges, not even realising its been set up to be that way right from the get go! Nor do they even realise it’s a great victory for them and not the Left.

    And this is all because the Tories made pretty sure no one knew that for every bogus asylum seeker we sent to Rwanda, not only did we have to pay for them, we had to take one Rwandan citizen as a migrant in return!

    I wonder why so few people know of this arrangement!

    And yet again we hear them baying for the impossible, leaving the ECtHR which they can’t do instead of doing what every other country in Europe does, and instead reduce its significance to advisory only, meaning we can ignore it completely if we choose to do so.

    By coincidence also yesterday the US House of Representatives voted to cut all funding for gain of function experiments, and one funding GoF work at Wuhan by the EHA. Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks said “For decades, scientists have been warning that research with potential pandemic pathogens could cause an outbreak.”

    I remember being told the idea that lab-created viruses were a conspiracy theory. Now the evidence is very strong for government funded experimentation, there’s zero interest and coverage in MSM.



  29. friend of yogi bear says:

    BBC… Usual editorial standards.

    It has become increasingly apparent to me that the BBC is pushing its top talent too hard and expecting far too much of them, why only a few days ago we had Nick Robinson literally seeing things, no doubt due to work pressure , when he recounted seeing non existent wall paper somewhere in Downing St. He sounded so plausible when telling Nadine Dorries about it.
    And I wonder how is Huw Edwards ? pushed so hard by his taskmasters, so that he started to behave in a way that risked his health. Those of us in the” Huw is innocent”group, urgently need an update on how his treatment is progressing, is it working?is he responding? Whatever next.
    Where was the duty of care shown by those responsible.


  30. s.trubble says:

    I,ve watched 2 Supreme Court judgements ;

    1 ) HMRC v Rangers FC re historical EBT usage.

    2) Rwanda returns

    Both cases overturned previous decisions by lower courts including the high Courts.

    In case 1 Rangers were found to have correctly utilised the tax provisions at the time of their usage and 2 tax Tribunals confirmed accordingly,

    The Scottish High Court overturned the Tax tribunals ( i.e. the tax experts) with an infamous phrase used by High Court judge , Lord Carloway” common sense would tell you”!!

    The Supreme Court on appeal also judged in favour of HMRC.

    In case 2 Rwanda this morning the judge seemed to favour some previous report by the UNHCR over our Government and what seems to be a significant country wide support.
    In this case previous support from within the lower courts also was over-ruled.

    It came across( perhaps wrongly, I admit) that the Supreme Court
    were looking for any way to strike the cases down.

    the use of the word ” reformant” featured in their RWANDA ruling , where Rwanda previously had returned someone to their original home country against their human rights?

    There seems to be so many loopholes in these Human Rights processes that the only way forward is a new law which would keep it out of the Supreme Court’s hands altogether. Perhaps as simply as Thoughtful suggests earlier.

      As I’ve said previously the Supreme Court seems to be a Law unto itself. They seem to be acting like Gods on Mount Olympus. There’s been a fair number of capricious and perverse judgements since its invention.


    • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

      The use of EBT by Rangers at the time was perfectly legal. What happened was the HMRC got the law changed and a retrospective catch all going back 8 years was applied. My own former employer was also caught retrospectively like this, and it closed his business. He did however in 2019 receive a letter stating that it was being ‘reviewed’ and he may be entitled to a partial refund. Needless to say, no refund, and ultimately too late for all his employees who lost their jobs.

    I sawe this eleswheere, don’t know the history myself, interesting if true:

    “Why is Egypt so adamantly opposed to allowing refugees from Gaza to escape the city, I thought they cared about the Palestinians?

    They care about the Palestinians in theory, as Muslim neighbours, but Egypt isn’t going to let that blind them to reality.

    Unlike seemingly everyone on this site, Egypt bothered to pick up a history book.

    Jordan allowed Palestinian refugees. They tried to set up a state-within-a-state, attempted to assassinate the King, and got kicked back out.

    Lebanon accepted the Palestinian refugees that had just been kicked out of Jordan, Those same refugees started a ten-year civil war.

    Kuwait accepted Palestinian refugees. They then helped Saddam Hussain take over.

    Egypt has no desire to be next on the list of countries dealing with open rebellion or terrorism after letting in refugees from Palestine, especially if they risk Hamas sneaking in with them.”

      Zephir – you make assumptions about the knowledge of people on this site which I might describe as ‘ cavalier’- ironically bbc4 is putting out a series on the formation of Israel across 6 episodes … it was made befor the BBC was taken over by the Far Left / Islam and is … informative … it has interviews with the key players – including King Hussain ….


      • Zephir says:

        OK I have done some quick research, which has revealed Palestinians are indeed international shit stirrers and killers:

        “A Palestinian assassin opened fire King of Jordan, Abdullah and his grandson, amid rumours that the King had been planning to sign a peace treaty with the newly established state of Israel. Abdullah died, but Hussein survived the assassination attempt and, according to witnesses, pursued the assassin.

        In 1970, Hussein expelled Palestinian fighters (fedayeen) from Jordan after they had threatened the country’s security in what became known as Black September in Jordan. ”

        “The Palestinian insurgency in South Lebanon was a multi-sided armed conflict initiated by Palestinian militants against Israel in 1968 and against Lebanese Christian militias in the mid-1970s. It served as a major catalyst for the outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War in 1975. Fighting between the Palestinians and the Christian militias lasted until the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, which led to the expulsion of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) from Lebanese territory.”

        “The Palestinian exodus from Kuwait took place during and after the Gulf War. There were 357,000 Palestinians living in Kuwait before the country was invaded by neighbouring Iraq in August 1990.[1] The policy which led to this exodus was a response to the alignment of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in favour of the Iraqi invasion as well as PLO leader Yasser Arafat’s support for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein”

    The BBC’s failure looks even worse when you see the simple and clear comment the BBC misquoted…..just how did they manage to get this wrong?…..

    The Reuters quote….

    ‘Reuters had included a quote from an IDF spokesman that read: “The IDF forces include medical teams and Arabic speakers, who have undergone specified training to prepare for this complex and sensitive environment, with the intent that no harm is caused to the civilians.”’

    The BBC rewrite….

    ‘Speaking during what is understood to be a live broadcast, the newsreader said: “We are hearing from Reuters that is reporting that Israel, it says its forces are carrying out an carrying out an operation against Hamas in Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital and they are targeting people, including medical teams as well as Arab speakers.

    “They are also saying that Israel is calling on all Hamas operatives in the hospital to surrender at this point.”

    The newsreader then went on to repeat the misreported information, adding: “They are targeting … it’s Arab speakers as well as some of the medical staff there and they are asking all Hamas operatives in that hospital to surrender.”’

    When the BBC knows the sensitivity and potential consequences of the issues and knows it must judge every comment carefully how did they get that so wrong?

    ‘A spokesman for the Board of Deputies of British Jews said it was “absolutely appalled” by the footage, adding: “At best, this shows a staggering lack of care when reporting on a highly volatile situation, which can have a knock-on effect all over the world, including in Britain, where anti-Semitic attacks have risen by more than 500 per cent since October 7th.

    “Incidents like this make a mockery of the BBC’s oft-stated dedication to professionalism and impartiality.”’

    Outright carelessness or carelessness due to ingrained anti-Israel prejudice in that they expect the Israeils to do such a thing and so don’t question it however unlikely it appears to anyone else?

    The BBC that tells us that the Israelis are ‘happy to kill children’.

    Once is a mistake, twice maybe coincidence, three times and more is enemy action.

    Millenial morons in action:

    “I’m A Celebrity fans threaten to ‘boycott’ new ITV series amid backlash over ‘tone-deaf’ decision to let former UKIP leader Nigel Farage enter the jungle”




    “Farage isn’t the divisive figure as the DM says. The people who are divisive are the intolerant extremists who won’t accept the will of the people in the Brexit referendum.”


  35. Sluff says:

    Big problem for the Far Left this weekend.

    For which issue do they organise a demo?

    Pro- open door mass immigration and no removal of illegal immigrants?

    It’s a tough choice.
    Perhaps the BBC editors would care to choose.


  36. Zephir says:

    What do the far left have to say ?

    Coming to the UK sooner rather than later…..

    “Riot cops clash with furious crowd demanding a Coldplay gig is cancelled: Muslims in Indonesia call for the show to be axed over their support for the LGBT community”

    After Rishi has changed Rwanda into a safe Country by next Spring maybe he could sort Gaza out by Autumn and do Russia/Ukraine by next Christmas.
    China may take him a month or two longer.


  38. Sluff says:

    Pug at 1201 and Lucy at 1416 reference the truly appalling BBC bias over a totally false representation of the Israeli entry into the Gaza hospital.

    Bur guess what? The 6 pm News from the Hamas Broadcasting Corporation did cover the IDF news conference advising the provision of doctors and Arab speakers embedded in the Israeli forces,
    But somehow failed to mention their appallingly biased report from earlier in the day. Instead it was the usual sentimentalised guff about children and babies.
    Where were the BBC reports about children and babies when Hamas butchered families on October 7th?
    You got it. There weren’t any. Not until much later. And then only in the context of the Israel response.
    Totally disgusting.

    One version of woke is the ridiculous focus on tiny minorities at the expense of the majority.
    Expense meaning peoples every day lives are impacted negatively because of the ‘rights’ of a few.
    BLM is one example. Trans is another.
    Many councils fall meekly into,line.

    This example is another. And it is so sad.

    ‘Noise row silences 200-year ringing of Beith church bell’

    One, yes one complaint has been received. 900 signatures have been received asking for the bells to be rung again.

    1 against 900.
    The council has asked for the bells to stop.
    Utterly pathetic.

    Between you and me – I’m bored with boat thing now – after the supreme Blair court ruled against HMG sunak is saying he is bringing ‘emergency ‘ legislation to make Rwanda safe again …. Does he really thing the Blair court won’t find another reason to bounce it ?

    Until HMG derogates from whatever treaty or convention we are screwed …. And even then the Blair court will do all it can to disable us …. Sink the boats …. Dump them on the French beaches …


    • Fedup2 says:

      That vote is a good indication of the deep enemy within Labour – maybe they’ll split and be the ‘Islamic party ‘ – something which is inevitable …..


  44. Fedup2 says:

    It’s good for us that there are plenty of people monitoring bbc output for Islamic Hamas propaganda – / anti Israel lies ….

    … there are now 2 serious slurs against Israel – plus the refusal to call Islamic Hamas the terrorist group they are ….
    .. msybd a third lie will force BBCOFCOM / brigade 77 / dinage ‘ culture committee to do something ….


    • Foscari says:

      Fedup – Does the BBC think that anybody other than
      hardened anti-Semites believe anything that the BBC’S
      most embittered reporter against Israel for more than
      20 years , Orla Guerin tells us or writes about Israel ?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Unfortunately it’s not just the domestic audience – the truly dire international news – which seems to employ all sorts of 0400 halfwits – also pumps out that Islamic Hamas propaganda …..

        .. after the ‘IDF missile hits hospital lie ‘ some might expect the BBC to be a bit more careful about the lies they spout – but they can’t help themselves …

    Breaking news, that political heavyweight, Jess Phillips, has quit the Labour Party front bench.

    TBH, I didn’t know she was on the front bench, but…

    It really is tragically laughable, all of those posing lefties and barking mad Muzzies that make up the Labour Party can have an almighty tantrum and flounce off into the sunset.

    Do any of them think that Benjamen Netanyahu is going to say, “Fxxx this, we’ve got to stop. Bollocks to the hostages. Jess Phillips has quit…”

    Absolutely no one gives a toss…


    • Fedup2 says:

      Class one virtue signalling …. It’s a reminder that while blue Labour gets plenty of attention – red labour has factions just as deep – and a big labour majority will make the factions even more active …. Particulary with more Muslims being elected …
