Midweek 24th January 2024

The current ‘culture secretary ‘ apparently for ensuring the BBC is unbiased is Lucy Fraser . Fraser has announced another ‘review ‘ of BBC bias. There have been 9’culture secretaries ‘ since 2017 None have done anything .Thats what this campaign is up against . If you want to complain about the BBC where do you go ? You have to go to the BBC ! With other broadcasters – you go straight to OFCOM – hence the number of complaints against certain broadcasters . How can that be right ?

I wonder who made money out of it … not me

    The evidence of BBC bias is overwhelming
    DT today by Danny Cohen

    “…The BBC must answer when it comes to its reporting of Israel’s conflict with the terrorist group Hamas. They are questions that are occupying the Government too, with both Rishi Sunak and Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer commenting on BBC “bias” this week.

    …They tell us that the BBC is being undermined in its duty to impartiality by institutional bias, anti-Israel sentiment and, in some cases, racism against Jews.

    If you are in any doubt that there is a problem, here are 10 examples of BBC bias and breaches of impartiality since the Hamas attacks on Israel in October.

    October 7: The BBC refuses to describe the massacre of children, the rape and sexual mutilation of women, the mass murder of young people at the Nova music festival, and the taking of hostages, including babies and Holocaust survivors, as a “terrorist attack”.

    October 17: A BBC News reporter blames Israel for a rocket attack on a hospital in Gaza before any evidence emerges to prove this was the case.

    October 30: The BBC’s reporting of a mob attack on Jews in Dagestan describes the incident as simply “anti-Israel”.

    October: The BBC’s diplomatic correspondent, Caroline Hawley, uses social media to repost messages and photographs from Gaza without context or any apparent attempt at basic journalistic verification.

    October: The BBC’s Arabic Service fails to maintain standards of impartiality in its reporting of the Israel-Hamas war. Among those failing to meet these standards is BBC reporter Rami Ruhayem who blames “Western media for being complicit in Israel’s attack”.

    October: Presenters working for the BBC Asian Network use social media to accuse Israel of genocide, ethnic cleansing and war crimes. To make matters worse, senior BBC managers are warned about these posts..

    November 14: A BBC executive responsible for the flagship documentary strand Storyville lends warm public support to a Palestinian film-maker after he makes an anti-Israel speech that includes genocidal statements

    November 15: A BBC newsreader twice claims that Israeli forces were “targeting medical teams and Arab speakers” at Gaza’s largest hospital. This was a gross distortion of the facts, apparently based on the BBC’s misinterpretation of a Reuters’ report.

    December 24: The BBC reports unverified claims by Hamas that the Israeli army was carrying out “summary executions” of Palestinians in Gaza. The report is aired six times on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service before being pulled.

    January 13: The BBC’s highest-paid presenter, Gary Lineker, having shared material on social media that accuses Israel of genocide, reposts a call for the racist boycotting of Israel.

    In all honesty, can the BBC’s senior management look at a list this long, with this many egregious issues and not admit they face a serious problem? Far harder but absolutely necessary is for the BBC to confront the institutional bias and anti-Semitism that has become evident in the corporation and take meaningful steps to address it. It is a mission it cannot afford to fail.”

    Danny Cohen was the Director of BBC Television



    My comment:
    As we have learnt this week, the BBC still gets to decide on what is a justifiable ‘complaint’- first before Ofcom gets involved. And when Ofcom (if ever) gets involved which is when they (OFCOM) are charged with trying to protecting the BBC claims of ‘impartiality’ (the reason it exists) to retain its privileged (tax free) broadcast TV Charter (even if breached), to protect against national embarrassment. and its clear that this is breached continually and yet ‘buried’ along with the BALEN report that the BBC commissioned and never published (due to the toxic mentality of some of many (not all) but most of its editorial staff, who could not then be named). This is still the case. Its unpublished, still.

    Why the BBC must finally publish Balen report

    But you know the BBC, they have that TV Charter to claim that they are impartial, because if it was not they would loose its valuable Charter to be the national state broadcaster and its ‘global audience’ which it is able to DOUBLE its money (overseas earnings), mainly US and Canada that still think the BBC is ‘impartial’, ‘trustworthy’ and backed by willing TV licensee fee payers and parliament (which leads us back to the BBC Charter which is directly linked to the TV license money, which is linked to something that is clearly not recognised on the BBC ‘impartiality’. An unknown word. They only recruit from The Guardian (Officially) or Common purpose `(unofficially). This had sadly been the case for over forty years. The BBC is by stealth – the enemy within, this a problem of state security.

    Barroness Deech (ex BBC Governor) writing in (DT) said its clear that its time for the BBC to be subject to a totally independent OMBUDSMAN (rather than OFCOM) if it wants to keep its Broadcast Charter, which is in danger of losing come the next TV Charter. But then we shall have Labour back in Office and then the ‘can’ will be kicked further down the road and nothing at all will change. Again, but that is what the BBC wishes to happen. If we let it.

    Not the BBC

    Do you think there is a vibe ? Talks of preparation for war – conscription – doomsday clock – rich people building bunkers – North Korea – Taiwan – Ukraine – Gaza – Iran – next – and then there is something about ‘The Event ‘ ?

    For those who spend a lot of time taking such stuff in its happily grim – as I’ve written – when that nuclear flash comes I’d like just a moment to have some idea as to why I was about not to be any more – I’d be so cheesed off not knowing …


    • G says:

      I wonder if the reporters explored the modus operandi of the Thatcher/Reagan collaboration to de capitate Russia of its offensive capabilities. After all, > 1million junior Russians have fled fearing conscription. Who is left to attack Europe big time?

      More a case of the Hitler method approaching the end: arming children and OAP’s/disabled?

    More progress of the replacement kind. As the BBC like to remind us each year that St George was — contrary to public perception — Turkish, not English. Thus it also turns out all sorts of childhood memories were in fact built by migrants… Dr Who always was a queer Rwandan with a sidekick from Kerala.

    “Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd freed from jail”


    “Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd has been released from prison after he was jailed for six years over the death of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown on a date.

    Ms Brown died in 2015 after she was thrown from the boat when it capsized on the River Thames after hitting a submerged tree trunk.

    Shepherd, 36, was freed, with conditions, after serving half of his sentence behind bars.

    He was also serving a concurrent term of four years for an unrelated assault.”

    Pencil neck is free, so him doing another’s crime and going on the run didn’t add to his sentence..

    I was taken to task by ‘Thoughtful’ regarding my post commenting on SNP and Labour contribution to PMQ’s. He (She?) suggested their contribution should be considered free speech. Indeed it is but so are my comments. Time was that we were a United Kingdom with Christian Western values. It seems that the invasion has extended into our own Parliament and the SNP seems very concerned with matters that have F-All to do with most Scottish people and their concerns. I could scarcely describe Tahir Ali’s speech as a question, Speaker Hoyle has a lot to answer for. I don’t condone anyone being shot for any reason but what the question has to do with the PM, Britain or Scotland I fail to grasp. I’ll Ieave you to judge for yourselves:


    Stephen Flynn
    (Aberdeen South) (SNP)
    Last night, as Tory MPs were once again fighting among themselves, the public were at home watching John Irvine of ITV News report on footage from Gaza of an unarmed Palestinian man walking under a white flag being shot and killed by the Israel Defence Forces. Such an act constitutes a war crime, does it not?

    Stephen Flynn
    I do not think it is unreasonable to expect the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to rise to that Dispatch Box and tell the people of these isles and elsewhere that shooting an unarmed man walking under a white flag is a war crime. In recent weeks, the House has acted with urgency and intent following an ITV drama. The question is, will the House now show the same urgency and intent following this ITV News report and finally back a ceasefire in Gaza?

    Ms Anum Qaisar
    (Airdrie and Shotts) (SNP)
    Q8. We entered 2024 with starvation and famine as acute as ever across the globe, much of it caused by the climate crisis, yet at present the world’s worst hunger crisis is in Gaza, created by Israel’s ongoing siege. The integrated food security phase classification has found that of the 600,000 people facing starvation globally, 95% are in Gaza. Starvation used as a weapon of war is a war crime. The Israeli Government have the power to end this starvation crisis by ending the siege of Gaza and opening all crossings—do they not, Prime Minister? (901175)

    Tahir Ali
    (Birmingham, Hall Green) (Lab)
    Q9. Recently released documents reveal that the Foreign Office had serious concerns about Israel’s compliance with international humanitarian law and its ongoing assault on Gaza. This assessment was hidden from Parliament while the Prime Minister boldly stated his confidence in Israel’s respect for international law. Since then, the scale of Israel’s war crimes in Gaza has been revealed to the world, thanks to South Africa’s case at the International Court of Justice. Therefore, is it not now time for the Prime Minister to admit that he has the blood of thousands of innocent people on his hands, and time for him to commit to demanding an immediate ceasefire and an ending of the UK’s arms trade with Israel?

  11. Zephir says:

    Hey muzzies, have a think on this:

    On October the 8th when Isrealis saw mass jubilant protests all over the Western world. Every large western city from London to Sydney to New York to Ottowa, tens of thousands of people took to the streets jubilantly cheering Jews being raped and slaughtered in the most sickest manner imaginable. And saying “Gas the Jews, Fu** the Jews, Kill the Jews” in their protest.

    I think when the Jews saw videos of that on the news they realized ‘We’re on our own and we don’t care what you people think, we are going to deal with these sick bastards who did this to us once and for all.’

    The fact Muslims had the audacity to do that on October 8th all over the Western world. Enraging the Jews by doing it.

    These same Muslims now all going back into the streets screaming, have sympathy on us, cease-fire, please we’re human. Is just going to fall on deaf ears. And they deserve whatever comes to them fully.

    Seeing those protests on October 8th all jubilantly cheering what Muslims had done to Jews the day before. I was ashamed of being a member of the human race knowing they are part of it too. What they did was so sick. After them doing this, no tears of mine will ever be shed if these bastards get wiped out as a consequence. Everyone should be doing their own little October 8th-style cheer when they scream “Have sympathy on us”…

    “Chanting ‘700,’ pro-Palestinian activists in New York fete Hamas attack. Israel supporters rally to mourn hundreds of dead and express solidarity and outrage, as opponents mock them and applaud ‘resistance’ at dueling protests.

    Some made mock crying gestures toward the Israelis to taunt them.”


    “People ‘celebrate’ Hamas attack in London”

    “Pro-Palestinian rally at Lakemba in Sydney criticised for ‘celebration’ of attacks on Israel”


    “Lebanese Hezbollah congratulated Hamas on the “large-scale, heroic operation” into Israel

    Iran and Syria issued statements of support for the Hamas attacks on Israel through government news media. Iranian Foreign Minister Nasser Kanaani “congratulated” the Palestinian people”



    • MarkyMark says:

      WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE …. A reader in Bradford recalled asking a West Yorkshire officer on the street that day why the various “Muslim community leaders” weren’t being arrested for incitement to murder. The officer said they’d been told to “play it cool”. The calls for blood got more raucous. My correspondent asked his question again. The policeman told him to “F— off, or I’ll arrest you.”


  13. Zephir says:

    “One man held up a picture of an Israeli hostage on his phone and waved it at the Israeli crowd. Another was seen brandishing an image of a swastika. Some taunted the Israelis while tearing up and stomping on an Israeli flag, or danced with a Palestinian flag.”



  14. Zephir says:

    “These protestors openly cheer for atrocities. They’re not pro-Palestinian; they’re pro-bloodshed,” the Israeli Consulate in New York said.”

      The Army have four employee support networks to support serving soldiers and offer advice to the leadership and policy teams, they are:

      Army Servicewomen’s Network

      Army BAME Network

      Army LGBT+ Forum

      Army Parent’s Network

      In addition there are a number of defence faith and health networks that offer more specialised staff support.


  18. digg says:

    The most baffling thing about the BBC to me is their complete endearment to all those Barbaric, stone-age Middle Eastern nations with majority Muslim populations and governments.

    You could quite rightly describe these nations including Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza etc. etc as the most right wing, anti-feminine, anti-gay, anti-Christian, anti anything western, Nazi-run lying and brutal societies on the face of the planet.

    Yet the hand wringing BBC consistently portrays them as model societies with citizens oppressed by the West.

    Sometimes I really wonder who actually are the people who drive the BBC and I suspect whoever they really are they have an overwhelmingly Muslim component. And scare the rest of the BBC into compliance.

    One day we will inevitably be forced to take up arms against these evil forces, of that I am 100% convinced.


    • JohnC says:

      I’ve mulled that over a lot digg and can think of no logical reason why the BBC defend and protect these people whose qualities they despise when it’s white people who do it.

      But then they do the same for all non-white minorities. And so I have reached the conclusion that they do it for 2 reasons:
      The first is to use as ‘victims’ against the Right (who they hate with the kind of passion only ideology can whip up)
      The second is so they can virtue-signal about how much they care for poor the unfortunate people of this world who are inferior to them.
      The truth of it all is that the Left are driven by hate. The rest is hypocrisy. maxi gives us PLENTY of evidence of that. He’s not here to debate. He’s here because he hates us and cannot help himself.

  19. JohnC says:

    Russia deliberately risked lives in downed plane – Kyiv

    First it just ‘crashed’ and now it’s Russia’s fault Ukraine shot it down.

    The BBC give this quote from Ukraine a paragraph all of it’s own:
    ‘”This can point to Russia’s deliberate actions aimed at putting the lives and safety of the PoWs under threat,” it added.’

    I don’t believe for one second that Russia sacrificed that plane and 9 crew for propaganda. It makes no sense whatsoever. I think the Ukranians screwed up, shot it down due to poor communication or something and now the BBC are going along 100% with the lies to cover it up.

    Shame on you BBC. What happened to your journalistic ethics ?. Did you ever have any ?.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      The Ukrainians may have shot down a Russian military transport. If it had Ukrainian POWs on board that is part of the fog of war. It was a legitimate military target, unlike, say, a Malaysian airliner.


      • JohnC says:

        You missed the point entirely again Rob.

        It’s about the lies and misinformation we are being told about it. Some of the truth will slip out once the story dies down.

        Do you actually think the Malaysian airliner was deliberate and not some more trigger happy grunts fighting a war ?.


        ‘In several tapped phone calls, men’s voices are heard discussing the transport of the Buk missile system from and back to Russia, while audio previously released by Ukrainian officials appears to show a panicked militant saying MH17 was shot down in the mistaken belief it was a military plane.’

        Did you ever wonder why Ukraine were allowing flights over a war zone in the first place (clue: money) ?.


        • Rob in Cheshire says:

          As it happens, my belief is that the Malaysian airliner was shot down by mistake, I do not think they realised it was an airliner. Shooting it down was therefore reckless and criminal.

          If Ukraine shot down a Russian military transport, it was a legitimate target. If it had Ukrainian POWs on board, that is one of the many tragic ironies of war.

          The fact remains a Russian military aircraft was a legitimate target, a Malaysian airliner was not.


          • JohnC says:

            The Russian plane was carrying POW’s and it was effectively flying under a flag of truce to deliver them for trade. It’s flight path had been given to Ukraine as it had on previous occasions.

            How does your argument stand up to that Rob ?.

    Asante Gold: UK to loan back Ghana’s looted ‘crown jewels’

    I do enjoy stumbling across examples of the BBC’s massive racist double-standards.

    ‘The Asante built what was once one of the most powerful and formidable states in west Africa, trading in, among others, gold, textiles and enslaved people.’

    Amazing how the author chose a different word to ‘slavery’. That seems to be reserved to use in a negative against whites only now. A VERY deliberate attempt to make it not seem very important.

    And this is what it’s all about:

    A Blue-Peter hat knocked up by Jon Noakes one Thursday evening from papier mache, tinfoil, gold paint and a coconut shell.

    It’s all par for the course at the BBC I’m afraid. This is the author:
    ‘Daughter of the British Liberal Democrat politician and parliamentarian Lord Razzall’

    Another one of no practical use in the real world and would be unemployable before the BBC existed.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      I disagree that such people are of no practical use in the real world. On the contrary, they would make excellent cannon fodder for when we attack Russia, China, Iran and North Korea.

      Those reports in the media about General Sir Patrick Nicholas Yardley Monrad Sanders calling for conscription… Have they got that right? Surely they mean Colonel Sanders, the guy responsible for Kentucky Fried Chicken? At least he would have stayed in Afghanistan long enough to open a few branches of KFC, which would have benefited the citizens of Helmand Province somewhat more than the efforts of the Britsh and American military forces.

        It certainly reverses the tradition that old men send young men to fight – also the awful tradition of the UK sending boys to die in other peoples ‘ wars – the effect of which has turned the UK into an over populated third world sewer .

        There are still signs though – such as war junkies going off to get killed in Ukraine …. But each time a politician talks about ‘fighting for freedom – or justice – or against tyranny ‘ you know it’s a lie…
        In countries with skin in the game – Eastern Europe – it’s a bit difference because you’d know mr putin wants his empire back and is doing it…. NATO is fragile because every one assumes the US will pick up the tab.

        It wouid be supreme irony if HMG had to fire up the BBC to create patriotism and a will to fight – free white feathers maybe – or maybe regiments based ‘on sexual identity ‘…

We ran forward and dived to the ground to fire (as they enjoyed making us do) but the front stand didn’t deploy properly and it was his job to sort it out. My God – you would not believe what a clueless idiot he was. I ended up shooting it resting on just one leg of the stand because he turned into a babbling child.

        They would kill more of our side than theirs.

      Early life
      He was the son of Humphrey Razzall, a Liberal Party member who stood as Liberal Parliamentary Candidate for Scarborough and Whitby in the 1945 general election.

      Razzall attended St Paul’s School, London, before going to Worcester College, Oxford, representing the university at cricket in 1964.[1]


      Frere Cholmeley Bischoff encountered financial difficulties and dissolved shortly after his departure, for which some blame was attributed to Razzall.[3]


    • MarkyMark says:

      Lord Razzall attracted criticism in 2008 when it was revealed that he and his partner, Jane Bonham-Carter, a fellow life peer, had both claimed House of Lords expenses for a flat that they shared, although it was not claimed that a breach of the rules had occurred.[8] The House of Lords expenses system was later changed to give peers a flat rate irrespective of their residence.[11]

    • Doublethinker says:

      I read this story in the Telegraph yesterday. Two things about stood out. Firstly how out of touch with the mood of 21 st century Britain the general who proposed it was . Secondly the reaction of the Telegraph readers as judged by their comments.
      The Telegraph readers are generally older than the population average and were more patriotic than the population at large . Yesterday this once patriotic group of older people, well at least a cross section of it , ridiculed d the notion that there should be conscription to the armed forces and that the conscripts should be sent to fight.
      Their argument was that there was nothing in 21 st century Britain that was worth dying for. That the indigenous young people who would be conscripted would be expected to fight for a country thst was no longer theirs after three decades of mass migration , suppression of British identity and promotion by governments of multiculturalism .
      This is surely a warning or an opportunity to any politician that the country is in a highly unstable mood. The middle class , which usually holds a country together, is full of dissenters who regard what has become of their country with contempt .

They reason that, by immigration and miscegenation, eventually the whole world will be multinational and of mixed race, By doing away with National loyalty there will no longer be wars between countries – there will be no countries! (See EU for details).

        Of course what they overlook is that there will always be groups who want something another group has (cattle, water, land) or disagree on some small interpretation of an ancient book (Shi’ite, Sunni etc).

        And, most importantly, there will always be a group of liberals such as those that infest the BBC, who see it as their duty to dictate how others must live their lives (though not themselves, obviously).

        We are doomed.

          I don’t think that the UK is too far away from this sorry state of affairs. The law and the police hold the line by suppressing the feelings and anger of the indigenous population and soft peddling on law breaking by other groups. This won’t work indefinitely.

      “According to Kimberley Overton, a nurse in Nashville, nurses were told not to spend time near patients’ beds to reduce spread of the virus, despite their full exposure in wards dedicated to covid cases. This was unnecessary cruelty. Patients were deliberately isolated, deprived of nutrition and water (drips were regarded as sufficient fluid intake), and communication was impossible with nurses covered head-to-toe in PPE.

      Wards should have had a warning at the entrance to abandon hope, all ye who enter here. Overton observed that covid was killing only people in hospital, not at home nor among the homeless. The treatment regime was devised to end lives efficiently. Ventilators were key to this, as Overton described:

      ‘In all my career, I had never seen the PEEP (positive end-expiratory pressure) settings set so high. Typically we see it at about five, and we were seeing that pressure at fifteen. We were blowing people’s lungs out.’

      To sedate intubated patients, high doses of fentanyl were administered. It was standard practice to conduct a breathing test on patients after a day on the ventilator. They almost always failed, because of the respiratory suppressant effect of fentanyl.”


      • Zephir says:

        “But the most dubious intervention was remdesivir, declared by Anthony Fauci as the ‘drug of choice’ for covid sufferers. This antiviral was originally tested on Ebola cases, but over half died in the trial. For covid a rushed and incomplete trial was claimed as evidence of its efficacy, but the drug often caused kidney failure.”


        • tomo says:

          Zephir – it’s worse…

          Remdesivir failed quite awfully in testing and was highly likely to be actually binned before the clinical field test was even reported on – such were the harms – swine Fauci (a chum of Gilead the makers) then stepped in and *arbitrarily* conferred Emergency Use Authorisation so the nasty (lethal even) potion was saved (temporarily) from being de-authorised. Fauci knew that the testing was failing badly – just for that he should’ve had to face a court.

    The Biden maladministration is about to do something which is illegal under international law along with the EU and the puppet state of Britain.

    Seizing another countries assets is simply illegal, no grey areas here, but it goes to the very heart of our way of life. Property ownership has for centuries been sacrosanct. An Englishmans home is his castle and all that.

    Well not any more! The fact that the government can break this most ancient and central pillar of law for the Russians mean there’s nothing to stop them applying it to anyone else they fancy, and that means you and yours.

    If they can seize Russian assets they can seize your assets. Don’t think this is going to stop there, because the fact that putting assets into the West is no longer safe means there will be no inward foreign investment which the West relies on. This unfortunately inevitably will lead to the collapse of the West as an economic power. The USA has for decades been spending like a drunken sailor, on the back of the Dollars status as world reserve currency. If it’s no longer safe to hold Dollars then the world will move to a different currency which doesn’t carry that risk.

    This morning we celebrate a rare incidence of the Daily Mail hitting top spot in the BBC’s online news page press line-up.

    Gosh, what glaring headline from this populist Tory tabloid rag might have caught the approving glances of the BBC gynaeceum?

    Tales of broken British infrastructure following years of neglectful Tory rule would certainly fit nicely with the opposition’s election campaign.

    Keir Starmer’s precious bubble-wrapped Ming vase could happily survive a brush with the present iteration of our Royal Mail.

    Before the 1997 Labour landslide, Roy Jenkins famously described Tony Blair as being ‘like a man carrying a priceless Ming vase across a highly polished floor’. Many think Keir Starmer appears even more diffident. (‘Thirteen Wasted Years’: A Strategy for Starmer? by Adrian Williamson)

    The majority of the middling electorate don’t want to hear about ‘woke’ that cherished lefty agenda – put simply they don’t want to be awoken, they want a broken Britain fixed.

    The general public would, for instance, rather hear about fixing pot holes, much more than legalising pot and other fixes

    Tony Blair will have warned Starmer of this

    Keir Starmer says no to UK drugs reform… Opposition Labour Party leader says if he comes to power… Earlier this year, Labour peer… David Blunkett told POLITICO’s Westminster Insider podcast that there should be an “open debate”… and urged Starmer to launch an inquiry into the decriminalization of drugs. Meanwhile, Labour Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has introduced pilot projects to end the prosecution of young people caught with cannabis in some London boroughs (Politico, September 2023)

    Shushhhh… don’t talk about that stuff, not until after the election…

    ‘Open Debate’ and ‘Debate’ by the way is the euphemism, we’re now calling the Esther Rantzen strategy, that’s deployed in place of outright demanding what it is you want – especially if that demand sounds a tad too brazen: Esther Rantzen urges MPs to debate assisted dying in passionate plea (Daily Express)

    How’s your Father

    Mind you, formerly cherished christian prohibitions seem to fall away by the day: This Pope is an abolute keeper… Just days after praising rumpy pumpy, the actual real-life Pope now claims that booze is a gift from God (Daily Star)

    Back to the BBC-approved Daily Mail’s lead screamer that will be music to Starmer’s ears: First Class Fiasco… Blacklash over plan for Royal Mail that could see letters landing on your mat just THREE days a week

    Let’s welcome a debut appearance to the frontpage spotlight for cartoonist Pugh in the Daily Mail (perhaps no longer daily but curtailed to just 3 editions per week in line with Royal Mail plans: under proposals from the postal regulator in a bid to save the firm)

    Pugh sketches a tortoise with a letter in its mouth (letter: a written, typed, or printed communication, sent in an envelope by post or messenger – there may be teenagers reading this)

    A lettuce in the tortoise’s mouth, surely?

    Observing the tortoise playing postie (one almost expects to see the little reptile wearing his de rigueur out-in-all-weathers mini four-legged shorts, a la his human counterparts) meanwhile, our regulation missus and hubby cartoon householder couple remark: “It’s not perfect but it’s quicker than Royal Mail”

    The Mail also delivers, fresh from the sack, a fine calm down dear

    I’m 64, was married for 35 years and have had five children. But I’ve never had an orgasm

    How was it for you, dear reader?

    To matters of male interest

    There was Mr AsI, as a long suffering Spurs fan, thinking he’d had something of a dry patch: Why don’t Tottenham win trophies? …last Friday marked 15 years since Spurs last won anything (The Athletic, 1st March 2023)

    Joe Lewis, whose family trust owns Tottenham Hotspur Football Club… pleaded guilty to three criminal counts in an insider trading case (FT)

    Both the formerly serious Times and the Mail like the pic for their frontpages of: Claudia Shiffer took her pet, Chip, to the premier of Argylle in London. He appears in the film (Times); Let the cat out of the bag, Claudia! Furs night: Claudia Shiffer at premier with pet Chip (Mail)

    There are those who accuse our UK civil service of being inveterate Remainers, determined to scupper Brexit, a pro-EU Quisling fifth column in our midst, ready to do down Britain at every turn – I say conspiracy theory… I won’t hear a word of it…

      “WHEN the social worker and landlady entered the property in Skegness on January 9, it must have been a terrible sight. There were two bodies, a father and son. The father, Kenneth Battersby, 60, had died of a heart attack and the son, two-year-old Bronson, had slowly starved to death over the Christmas holidays. The child was curled up and clinging to his father’s leg.

      Because this is Britain in 2024, land of health and safety, land of the welfare state, land of the NHS, somehow a two-year-old can starve to death during the ‘most wonderful time of the year.’ ”
      “Bronson Battersby, who was about a month younger than my little boy, should not have starved to death. But as we live in a society that no longer demands duty and sacrifice from mothers, because we live in an atomised, lonely society where people think the state should do everything for them, he did.”

    In October the Daily Sceptic reported on a paper written for the Royal Society led by Sir Chris Llewellyn Smith of Oxford University that concluded batteries were not the answer to the huge storage requirements of intermittent ‘green’ electricity power. Despite the prestigious academic fire power on parade, the paper died a death in the popular prints, presumably because of its unwelcome message about the much-touted battery solution. But recent revelations suggest the report could act as a loose thread that helps unravel the collectivist Net Zero agenda in the U.K. The Royal Society analysed decades of local wind speeds and found the electricity system needed the equivalent of at least a third of green energy to be stored as backup. Such a cost would be astronomical. Now it appears that the Government’s Climate Change Committee (CCC) fudged the issue by using just one year of high wind data in persuading Members of Parliament in 2019 to donkey-nod through Theresa May’s insane legislative rush to Net Zero by 2050………

    Will Japan succumb to the western migrant madness? Jesper Koll (Japan economist; ex- JP Morgan & Merrill Lynch):

    “Open-Door Japan: Japan will become an immigration powerhouse. Before the pandemic, the country was on track to accept about 150,000 new non-Japanese employees per year. This more than doubled to almost 350,000 in the first half of 2023. There are now approximately 3.2 million non-Japanese residents of Japan, up from barely half a million 30 years ago […] it is now perfectly reasonable to expect that about 10 percent of employees will be non-Japanese by 2030. That’s more than double the current rate of just below four percent.”

    The recently-crowned Miss Japan, born in Ukraine to Ukrainian parents, was described by the pageant organiser as “more Japanese than we are.” Remember when Trudeau said he was jealous of immigrants, and that Canada was more for them because Canadians take it for granted?

    Explosive surely? The BBC accused of lying during the pandemic in order to ramp up the threat of covid…the result of which, one, lockdown was justified by a lie, and two, resources and information were misdirected away from the people who needed them and thus were left unprotected.

    We know this is true….we saw the BBC trying to terrify parents and kids by exaggerating and over emphasising the deaths of children and by doing the same with ‘long covid’ turning that into a huge ‘threat’…you may not suffer from covid or have any symptoms but it will get you….long covid…..so obey, lockdown, wear masks and be afraid…..and ‘long covid’ was ‘invented’ in order to scare us more into thinking this was new and dangerous when in fact it is just the usual ‘post viral fatigue’ syndrome that is pretty common after any viral infection such as flu…but not so scary unless tweaked by the government ‘nudge unit’ and amplified by its BBC mouthpiece.

    This is from the Telegraph…somehow hasn’t made it onto the BBC yet despite it being an incendiary claim that the national broadcaster operated as a mouthpiece for government spreading its propaganda and misinformation in order to control people [maybe if someone had had some cake at work the BBC would pour huge amounts of time, effort and resources into reporting and holding to account…and get them ‘sacked’]…..

    ‘The BBC was allowed to “misrepresent” the risk posed by Covid to most people to boost public support for lockdown, the UK Covid Inquiry has heard.

    Prof Mark Woolhouse, an eminent epidemiologist and government adviser, lambasted the corporation for having “repeatedly reported rare deaths or illnesses among healthy adults as if they were the norm”.

    He said this created the “misleading impression” among BBC News viewers at the start of the pandemic that “we are all at risk” and “the virus does not discriminate”.

    In reality, he said it was known at the time that the risk of dying from Covid was 10,000 times higher in the over-75s than the under-15s.

    But Prof Woolhouse told the Covid Inquiry the BBC did not correct its reporting, saying: “I suspect this misinformation was allowed to stand throughout 2020 because it provided a justification for locking down the entire population.”

    He said further evidence of this was provided by a briefing dated March 22 2020 by a sub-group of the UK Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) that focused on the public’s behaviour.

    This stated that “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened; it could be that they are reassured by the low death rate in their demographic group … the perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging”.

    Prof Woolhouse said the “misperception” created by the BBC’s coverage that everyone was at risk was a “barrier to targeting interventions at the vulnerable minority who truly were at high risk from Covid”.

    “Some media sources — notably the BBC television news — did repeatedly misrepresent the risk posed by Covid,” he said.

    “One example is that they gave the impression that hospitals were being overwhelmed during the first wave. Some (mainly in London) were, but overall hospital bed occupancy was at an all-time low during that period.

    “A second example is that they routinely reported deaths of healthy young adults, thereby giving the impression that these were common. In reality, such deaths were extremely rare; the great majority of Covid deaths occurred in the elderly, frail and infirm.”

    He concluded: “Possibly, this kind of coverage was an attempt to back up government public health messaging; for example, the hugely misleading claim that ‘we are all at risk’.”’

    lol……‘The BBC was approached for comment.’

    No comment forthcoming…..because the accusation is 100% true and damning.
