The unelected PM is saying that the increase in the BBC licence fee won’t be as high as BBC expects – another lie ? Or maybe a suggestion the BBC becomes self financing ? Don’t pay for it . Keep your money …

    The absolute vitriol and near panic coming out of the Democrats in the USA over the threat of another Trump presidency clearly shows how warped they are.

    They have even tried to tempt and encourage an assassination attempt on Trump.

    How the public in the USA cannot see how absolutely filthy the Dems are just baffles me!

    They will however finally get what they deserve.

    This afternoon I was having a far-right cup of tea while reading a paper about the UN & WEF. It made me recall a 1980’s song. It’s not really a great song but the lyrics came to mind as they fit a possible future being planned for us at a global level. I can imagine people trying to hide out from the global state in an attempt to retain a normal life.

    The song is Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)
    by Mike And The Mechanics

    The lyrics (without posting the chorus multiple times);

    Take the children and yourself
    And hide out in the cellar
    By now the fighting will be close at hand
    Don’t believe the church and state
    And everything they tell you
    Believe in me, I’m with the high command

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    There’s a gun and ammunition
    Just inside the doorway
    Use it only in emergency
    Better you should pray to God
    The Father and the Spirit
    Will guide you and protect from up here

    Swear allegiance to the flag
    Whatever flag they offer
    Never hint at what you really feel
    Teach the children quietly
    For some day sons and daughters
    Will rise up and fight while we stood still
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

    While searching for the lyrics I stumbled across this related detail on Wiki.

    Peaking at number 6 on 8 March 1986 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it stayed for five weeks. It reached No. 21 in the band’s native United Kingdom.

    The song was banned by the BBC during the Gulf War due to its address of war, nationalism and religion, as well as a direct reference to weaponry in the line, “There’s a gun and ammunition just inside the doorway.”

    So it’s the early 90’s and Beeby was already banning certain things. I think the Gulf War was an excuse. The idea of normal citizens defending themselves with arms must have been repugnant to them even then. Whoever they were. It can’t be the same people as now put perhaps the ideologies were already entrenched.

      I said in the last blog how I was amazed that the BBC put this up (for a few hours) then I see today it’s all about the poor Palestinians and “nasty Israeli settlers” which is headlined and goes up at prime time, and no doubt will stay far longer. It’s so they can claim “balance”

    Fat chance quintessentially Blairite edition

    Cleverly signs new Rwanda treaty in bid to get asylum policy back on track – observes the Financial Times.

    Frankly, Rishi Sunak’s illegal immigrant asylum policy, just like his overall legal immigration policy, is to get it out of the news and kick it back into the long grass, where hopefully (from his point of view) the voters will forget about it.

    Fat chance

    Obesity is always someone else’s fault – comments Madeline Grant rather pointedly in the Telegraph

    By their fruits you shall know them – so warned Matthew (7:16)

    Ten senior Tories prepared to resign if PM presses ahead with hardline plan… on Rwanda (Telegraph) – threatening to resign if the PM adopts a certain policy – surely that’s a sacking matter?

    It’s a done deal… New Rwanda treaty signed – reports the giveaway freebie Metro

    Our mate Matt, in-house jester for the Telegraph, sketches the annual ritual of dressing the family Christmas tree and has pater familias mutter resignedly: “Christmas tree lights are like flights to Rwanda. You know they’re not going to work”

    At this point Britain has sent more ministers to Rwanda than we have illegal immigrants.

    The free advertising sheet Metro knows the score – having announced the Rwanda deal as its headline it runs the sub-header: But will it pass the UK Supreme Court’s verdict?

    And even it does pass the Blairite legacy creation that is the so-called supreme court: PM has ruled out withdrawing from the European convention (Times) – and about that Rishi Sunak policy (or is it a non-policy?) the formerly patriotic Times seems rather relaxed: Sunak’s middle way on Rwanda – ah the middle way… how quintessentially Blairite

    Our BBC reflexively intuites the meaning and purpose of the side show which is the official covid inquiry: Boris Johnson faces two-day grilling at Covid inquiry (BBC)

    One giant sizzling steak for mankind… space smells of meat (Daily Star)

    Because the entire point of the covid inquiry thing is to roast Tories who happened to be in power at the time with the Keir Starmer policy formula – sooner, harder, longer… Lockdown-wise.

    Marina Hyde The covid inquiry, otherwise known as a few bad men (Guardian)

    Whereas a few more ‘good women’ of Marina’s stamp would presumably have had us and our children pointlessly masked up and locked down sooner, more strictly and for perpetuity…?

    Pupils wearing masks… in class… in March 2021… unprecidented global decline in attainment… caused by the pandemic (FT)

    Now, now, FT. We’ve talked about this many times now: unprecidented global decline in attainment… caused by the pandemic Lockdown (Mr AsI’s little correction)

    Coronaphobia central – the pound shop junior Guardian which is the ‘i’ splashes with: ‘Why did the bodies have to pile high?’ – because Hamas are murderous, rapey, islamist barbarians…? Sorry, that’s a correct answer – but to the wrong question.

    I’ll try again

    Because the US can’t admit they don’t have the beating of Putin’s Russia…?

    Vladimir Putin will travel to the United Arab Emirates today amid concern in the west that it has become a sanctions-busting hub (Telegraph)

    Johnson: Covid Inquiry should look at harms of lockdowns (Telegraph) – did we already employ the term fat chance?

    KFC thwarts efforts to stop fast-food outlets near schools (Times)

      Doesn’t matter what laws blue labour pass – the lefties in the Blair ‘Supreme Court ‘ will strike it down – I do wonder -though – if things would have been different if we had kept all those EU flags raised ….. but some how – I think it would be just the same

    Israeli settler violence brings destruction and fear to West Bank as war rages

    Oh no. Bowen is back and just look at this ridiculous piece by our old friend.

    Bowen has no problem whatsoever about presenting what the Palestinians say as conclusive evidence. This is a 100% propaganda piece with as much totally irrelevant empathy crammed in to make sure you agree who the bad guys are and who are the victims.

    I’m sure these people are not treated well by the other settlers. And I’m 100% certain there are reasons. None of which are addresses by this outrageously lopsided piece. It seems that – according to Jeremy – Palestinians are peaceful folk who just want to farm and the Israelies are evil, violent thugs.

    Experience and evidence tends to disagree with you Jeremy.

    I thought the BBC might be trying to get their act together after the huge amount of criticism they have received for their bias against Israel. But no – it’s the usual Lefty ‘f*ck you’ to everyone else.

    Bowen is a complete liability. It speaks volumes about the BBC that he is allowed to keep churning out his extreme Left activism. They can never be reformed. The cancer of Leftism runs right through the organisation. Why should we be forced to fund these activists ?.

    Bbc Top talent and ace reporter Nick Robinson doing a turn on the today programme , radio 4 this morning. I hope that the BBC have a medical team on standby, Nicks excitement about Boris giving evidence to “the enquiry” is almost overwhelming him , he is orgasmic at the thought of Boris getting a kicking, somebody needs to slip him a sedative.
    If only the BBC had been in charge,headed by Nick ,or any number of his mates , who always know what should have been done.

  14. Fedup2 says:

    They must have trouble getting anyone to say anything about illegal immigration – so they turn to creatures like David Gauke – who was thrown out of parliament with the rest of the remainer traitors at the last election – a fact naturally overlooked by the BBC

    We all know the whole ‘stop the boats ‘ crap is a charade – they – the swamp – has no desire to stop the 3rd world trash washing up every day and adding to the troubles coming to the UK in decades to come …

      Hello Fedup2

    The bbc often make me want to lose my breakfast, but todays story really is a doozie ;-
    “Couples devastated by migration visa rule changes”.
    Take a look. there are pictures featuring nine folks, or 4.5 couples. All white. All the kind of people you would gladly have settling and living next door.
    I’m concerned more about the thousands of african blacks, average iq about 65, who march up the beach at dover intent only on sponging off the british idiots, raping the same, and stealing anything they can.
    Ditto anyone who wants to stick their arse in the air five times a day, regardless of pigmentation.
    Read the bbc though, and you’ll get a Goebbels-style lecture on why immigration is so wonderful.
    The bbc really have no shame, and unfortunately their propaganda convinces a lot of the people I talk to on a daily basis.


    • Scroblene says:

      Yesterday, I had to pick up some things in a couple of villages a few miles from here, and found my journey taking me through some absolutely fantastic Susex and Kent scenery, which is totally unspoilt and a breath-taking pleasure to see! On occasions, I’ve ridden my bike on some of the lanes, and still cannot believe the beauty we have, here in Great Britain! It was a fabulous journey!

      Sadly, the reverie faded when I found myself wondering what would happen if all this was allowed to degenerate through the invasion of foreign religions and cults, which are duty-bound to crucify all our British values and creeds.

      The potholes made more noise, the kerbs became more filthy and the oncoming headlights became more dazzling when I had to conclude that the bloody politicians we’ve had to endure since Margaret Thatcher was kicked out of her position as the real guardian of this country, have allowed all this to happen. The problems started when Blair decided to make the UK a puppet of all the forces designed to break this country down, with unfettered immigration, socialist dogma, an illegal war and outright lies to normal citizens.

      It’s only got considerably worse with Brown, (the worst PM this country has ever had, and ‘given’ the job after Blair ran away), Cameron and now Sunak. At least Boris got us out of the mire – temporarily – with Brexit, but when Starmer gets in next year, the job originally set out by Blair will be a continuing shoo-in for the next ten years.

      Somehow, I know deep down that my countryside trip will endure forever, but it’ll take many more years before the folly and deceit of the global socialist elite is realised. If towns and cities keep on welcoming foreigners with nothing to bring Great Britain, except an expectation of our generosity, then that’s their problem. I still put my money on the countryside’s ability to alienate these parasites, and any beeboids who are watching these comments will eventually understand that their task as a leftie gob-piece will lose them more fees than you can shake a stick at!

      (Sorry, getting a bit romantic – got a cold)…


    • moggiemoo says:

      You talk to the wrong type of people. Almost everybody I ever mention the BBC to want to see them drowned in the slurry they produce.


      • Scroblene says:

        Actually, you are certainly not wrong there, Moggie…

        My trouble is, that I avoid all towns and cities – especially Mare Khaaan’s London, like the plague now, so I’m a pure bumpkin, and won’t ever meet anyone from these places to ask them!


        • BRISSLES says:

          Scrobs, we can take comfort – for now, that BAMES and their ilk do not want to reside in our sleepy villages – not enough “business” know wot I mean ? And there’s no one around to stab after the sun has set.

          Fast forward a few years when developers have built new estates- future ghettos, alongside our sleepy villages and then we can truly say that Britain is finished.


          • Scroblene says:

            Absolutely Brissles, then add to that, the ‘quota’ of foreigners hoisted on local authorities, who then demand developers make about 10% of the development affordable/LA hsg etc., on their proposed developments, and that way we’ll all get them chucked into the villages whether they work or not!

            I have seen this happening here already, not in great numbers, but the chaos of Tunbridge Wells council seems to apply everywhere in the surrounding villages!

            Sevenoaks used to have the right idea, and told the government to ‘sod off’, and private house prices went through the roof, but now they’ve had legal challenges to their refusals, the prices are slowing down!

            Sunak’s name should be remembered every time illegal immigration is mentioned in every article, column and here of course! He’s just failed to stop it!


            • Fedup2 says:

              Sunak will never care – he’s an American – this time next year he’ll have moved his family to California and probably won’t ever come back – although he might turn up for that thing on the 11th November he might know about ….


              • Scroblene says:

                Of course he will bugger off Fed!

                Richmond was once a Tory safe seat, but a good thrashing by Reform could change that – if they get their act together!

      • Sluff says:

        All Tommy Flowers did was develop the world’s first programmable computer.
        But he was straight and had two children.
        So of no interest to the current BBC.
        If only he had been BAME, like Isaac Newton.


      • tomo says:

        Flowers was brilliant and shoddily treated.

        The Hut 6 Story by Gordon Welchman is readable and enlightening.

        Welchman was poached by the Yanks postwar and the establishment parasites really didn’t like that and really didn’t like his book.

        John Tiltman, Bill Tutte and several others deserve to be as well known as the Turing that gets wheeled out as the biggest thing at Bletchley Park.


      • Foscari says:

        I live quite near to where Tommy Flowers lived in Mill Hill
        in the North West London suburbs. Tommy lived in the
        same same house off of Lawrence Street NW7 for
        many years.
        A friend of mine lived a couple of doors away from him.
        A few years ago I recommended that a blue plaque
        be put up on the wall of the house where he lived.
        It’s funny because where I lived as a kid
        in Courthouse Road N12 lived opposite me.
        draughtsman Harry Beck who designed the iconic London
        Underground map in 1933 . He has a blue plaque on his
        house. Harry got £5 for his design !
        Tommy Flowers the Post Office engineer who built
        Colossus for Alan Turing . Who actually believed
        that Flowers could not achieve this.
        Flowers is with Turing probably one of two individuals
        responsible for shortening the Second World Wat by
        two years And saving hundreds of thousands if not millions
        of lives.
        There is no plaque for Tommy. He is remembered by the
        Post Office and at Bletchley. Oh yes there is a Tommy Flowers
        Mews in the Millbrook Park housing estate in Mill Hill.
        And just as an appendage . Tommy had to use his OWN
        money to build the first electronic computer !! I expect
        that less than 1% of the population of the UK has even ever
        heard of Tommy Flowers.

      Just been reading that and was amazed at what a complete technical idiot their ‘security correspondent’ is.

      ‘In some areas we have to wear anti-static clothing, while in others we are shown a bewildering variety of machines. They include ones that make electronic circuit boards, laser cutters and 3D printers (labelled Darth Vader, Luke and Leia in a tribute to Star Wars).’

      There is absolutely nothing ‘special’ about any of that. It is all commonplace in the smallest of businesses who male anything electronic.

      It made me think about how BBC reporters are no longer required to have any skill, experience or knowledge about the things they write about. The only ‘qualification’ they need to have is the right politicial attitude and can put the correct message into their articles.

      It’s because the BBC aren’t interested in accurate reports any more. Their entire objective is simply to pull people over to their political view. I notice many of their reports I check these days read like excited 6th former left-wing activists wrote them.

      And the reason the BBC are obsessed with Turing is that he was gay !.

        “There is absolutely nothing ‘special’ about any of that. It is all commonplace in the smallest of businesses who male anything electronic.”

        Absolutely, much to the missus’ annoyance I have quite a lot of that in my hobby workshop at home! They should try taking a walk around the labs and workshops where I work… it would literally blow their tiny little minds… no, on second thoughts, please don’t.

        “It made me think about how BBC reporters are no longer required to have any skill, experience or knowledge about the things they write about. The only ‘qualification’ they need to have is the right politicial attitude and can put the correct message into their articles.”

        Again, spot on, however you forget all the other elements required to build enough points to obtain a ‘green card’ to work at the BBC these days, namely: gender, sexuality, skin tone, religion, age, preference for female attire… blue hair?

        Talking about blue hair… in the local news:
        “Is the Rwanda policy a vote winner? One High Street has its say”

        First off, interesting choice of ‘random’ interviewees there, second off, I’m not sure the average inhabitant of Royal Wootton Bassett would be too happy to be told they now live in Swindon!

        Gordon starts out bewildered and it doesn’t get any better.

      “Battle of Britain: The schoolgirl who helped design the Spitfire”

      Girls ended the war!


      • JohnC says:

        ‘Hazel Hill helped her father do the calculations that meant Spitfires could be built with eight guns instead of four.’

        So surely that BBC article should have been about her father ?.

        That article starts with another BBC narcissist telling us how ‘her grandmother helped win the Battle of Britain’.

        What makes me laugh about those pathetic BBC agenda pieces is how they are a whole heap of inferrence and very selective, out of context quotes with the subject of the piece mentioned in the middle of it all as if it all were in some way down to them.

        Of course we get no information of what she ACTUALLY did. Which means it was trivial computational stuff to save her dad working it out. From what I can work out, she basically worked out the weight of guns + ammunition for various other aircraft.

        So she did indeed help. But she was not critical in any way whatsoever. She just saved her dad a bit of time.

        What is so wrong about it is that the BBC are simply not interested in the REAL heroes because they are white males. Who the BBC hate because they are all racist and sexist.

    The Covid website is available in 11 different languages !!!!!
    Only 4 of them use the normal English alphabet. The rest are in Arabic, Chinese and the like. FFS.

    That is the depths in the gutter to which the public sector establishment wallow in their own parallel universe of political correctness and ‘equality’.

    The BBC is the only news provider that can be trusted to deliver impartial, accurate, balanced and honest reporting and thus is the only news provider we need….which is why the BBC is constantly trying to shut down other providers such as News International, GBNews, Facebook and other social media and of course local news.

    ‘BBC is branded the ‘neighbour from hell’ by news bosses over the corporation’s plan to expand its local news coverage’
    ‘The BBC has been branded the ‘neighbour from hell’ by newspaper bosses over its plans to expand its local news coverage.

    Editors at major regional news publishers said the ‘state-funded juggernaut’ was ‘on course to suffocate independent journalism’ across the UK.

    In a co-signed letter, published by an array of local titles, they told director-general Tim Davie he faces a ‘shameful legacy’ if he does not change his approach.

    The BBC is ‘strengthening’ its local websites in 43 areas using money redistributed from local radio, where 45 presenter roles are being axed.

    The letter, signed by figures from groups including Reach, Iliffe Media, Newsquest and National World, claimed the BBC is ‘fixated’ on ‘stealing’ their readers. ‘

    Two problems here….one purely about the numbers as the BBC tries to be the one and only news provider. Two, and more importantly, the BBC has a worldview on so many crucial issues and uses its power and resources to push those views upon us and to make them ‘fact’…and with no-one left to argue differently the BBC’s worldview becomes de facto your worldview.
    The BBC doesn’t just provide news and views via the actual ‘news’ but feeds it to you through other programming, its documentaries and soaps and so-called comedy programmes….but it even gets ’em when they are young with CBeebies and its massive educational provision for schools….shaping young minds before they have the chance to think for themselves.

    You can see the dire effects this has on the young as they learn to hate the West, Britain, Empire and even themselves, be they White, and rather than value and believe in Western values they attach themselves to anything that opposes them….even as far as supporting terrorists…two articles from Spiked illustrate how the likes of the BBC toxify society with their very one-sided and insidiously harmful narratives….


    ‘That nearly a quarter of Zoomers have chosen to see Hamas, a vicious Islamist terror group, as liberatory heroes is all too telling. It suggests that millions of young people throughout the West identify with a movement that is unambiguously hostile to their society and way of life…..The identitarian culture of Zoomers – a culture of victimhood, of Western self-loathing and of conspiracism – has allowed pro-Hamas sentiments and myths to flourish. We need to challenge young people’s grossly distorted view of the war between Israel and Hamas. To do so, we need to take on the identity politics that sustains it.’

    Also issues of race of course loom large as legend becomes fact…the BBC pumping out very dangerous lies about race relations in Britain giving platforms to the likes of David Olusoga and Afua Hirsch to spread their posionous lies telling Bames that they can never succeed in a white majority society…thus ‘whiteness’ must be eliminated.

    The BBC, despite Black History Month, just doesn’t provide an honest picture of race in Britain and the fact that Bames are, and always have been, enormously successful in Britain and pretty much welcomed in the communities they lived in even if vastly majority white. The BBC cherry picks the bad and downplays the overwhelmingly good stories….it tells people to always, always think they are victims and that white people are the problem….a simplistic and inflammatory narrative from the BBC and the race grifters that serves only to divide and enrage.


    ‘Historians frequently view the past through sources such as newspapers or official documents. The news media, however, only report what is newsworthy. Likewise, officials tend to record only what was considered problematic for themselves. People getting on with each other is considered far too banal to make the headlines or to be recorded by officialdom. While necessary as part of the historian’s craft, using these sources as the sole focus obscures people’s everyday interactions. And it can unwittingly provide a foundation for simplistic narratives about racism being a natural and defining feature of life in Britain for centuries.

    As shown by the case of Sheffield, the past is far more complex and nuanced than today’s moralistic narratives about it suggest. We are not today seeing ‘history repeat itself’ or a rerun of the 1930s. The attempt to present the past in this simplistic manner allows a small minority of people to portray ‘race’ and ‘racial’ differences as insurmountable hurdles.

    All this does a huge disservice to the past – and to the present.’

    The BBC is the HS2 of news….there for the Establishment not the many…perhaps, like HS2, it should be rethought and reduced in size and ambition and the funding diverted to local services that are more accountable and more relevant and useful to people’s lives.

He was also notably chair of the independent race equality think tank The Runnymede Trust for two decades and was a member of the Holocaust Commission.

    Boris Johnson currently being cross examined at the Covid inquiry by Barrister Hugo Keith KC. Keith’s attitude to Johnson and his line of ‘questioning’ (I use the word advisably) is extremely adversarial, Keith is, without doubt, out to get Johnson. Keiths ‘questions’ are attacking statements not questions at all. Full of lines like “the UK had the worst statistics in Europe” etc, unproven and unproveable.

    The Inquiry is supposed to be just that, an inquiry not a grandstanding exercise.

    ‘Emmanuel Macron is gearing up to break European human rights laws as part of a bid to expel “dangerous” migrants from France.

    The French Government’s latest plan marks the country’s most significant crackdown on migration in thirty years. ‘

    The BBC is very concerned about our government thinking about withdrawing from the ECHR but seems less so about France just ignoring its rulings….France that pushes back unwanted migrants to Italy but somehow we can’t push the boat people back to France….

    ‘The French government has ignored a decision by the European Court of Human Rights for the very first time and deported an Uzbek national with links to terror organizations back to his home country.

    French newspaper Le Monde reported on Friday that the 39-year-old migrant had been expelled from France on Nov. 14, despite Europe’s top human rights court ruling against the Interior Ministry due to a perceived risk of torture upon his return to Uzbekistan.

    “It’s a turning point,” noted Lucie Simon, the immigration lawyer for Mr. A. “The Interior Ministry is deliberately violating a Court ruling that applies to France,” she added.’

    As far as pushing back migrants to France the main obstacle seems to be that France won’t accept them back….hmmm…if they won’t accept them why do we accept them and not just send them on their way again instead of all this nonsense about Rawanda which is more PR than a real plan.

    It’s a lack of will rather than the ability to stop them…just look at Hungary and Poland. Just say no…and ignore the BBC as well as the ECHR.


  27. Thoughtful says:

    A heads up to a bit of media disinformation going on. The media loves to bash the Human Rights Act and perhaps with good reason, but as we have seen with France, the problem is not with the Human Rights Act as the media claims, but with the way it is drafted into UK law as superior to all UK laws meaning that the state has to follow it.

    We cannot leave the Human Rights Act no matter what the media tells you. Although countries can do what ever they please the consequences of us doing so would destroy our economy so entirely the country would be unlivable. If even Russia can be a member it should tell you that something is not wrong with the HRA something is wrong with Britain itself.

    And now onto the main disinformation. That the UK has been stopped from sending bogus asylum seekers to Rwanda because of the HRA – it hasn’t.

    The decision by the Supreme court concerned refoulment which is a part of the Asylum treaty in which signatory countries agree not to return bogus asylum seekers to countries where their lives might be in danger. It can be argued the Supreme court took a contrary and unusual view in preferring an activist report over the foreign office one, but it is the final arbiter.

    If we are going to leave anything it should not be the HRA, but the asylum treaty which is now being widely abused and provably so. This is a matter for the United Nations and not the EU or associated bodies.

    So don’t believe the media when it talks about the Human Rights Act, they are promoting fake news here to distract from how awful the Rwanda plan really is.

    To be honest I’m glad it’s been stopped in its tracks, because the deal is that not only do we pay to send them to Rwanda, we pay them to take them, and for every one we send there we have to give one Rwandan citizenship in return.

    It’s a terrible deal for Britain only a Marxist Tory could have negotiated!

And the evidence so far, provided via the questioning by the lead counsel, haven’t even touched on that particular time yet.

    So what we have are people who regard Boris as guilty before trial and have no other contribution to make. Aided and abetted by the BBC.

    And I also discover this from yesterday:

    Where this man is on trial for murdering his girlfriend and her family (all black) while high on drugs and alcohol:

    From what I can find, the BBC didn’t even originally report it until he was in court. And once again a short, basic facts only article.
    Bermondsey: Joshua Jacques in court over four family members found dead

    It all goes to prove what a complete racist farce the BBC and BLM really are. They don’t care one bit how many black people get murdered if they can’t blame someone white for it.
