Weekend 27th January 2024

Do you wonder why the current ‘Conservative government ‘ has done nothing to control the BBC or its’ so called ‘regulator ‘ OFCOM ?. Well here is a clue – in the last 10 years there have been 11 ‘culture secretaries ‘. One might assume from that -that there is no drive to change the Far Left Anti British BBC . It seems that is a job for a real Party to do .

        Beeboidicles just have to be starved of the TV tax! They have to become commercial, and their leftie bias would melt away when they realise that the kidults they ’employ’ aren’t really interesting enough to gain advertising revenue!

    Hamas attack: US pauses UNRWA funding over claims of staff involvement
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-68104203

    ‘The US is pausing funding for the UN agency for Palestinians, UNRWA, over allegations of staff involvement in the 7 October Hamas attacks.’

    ‘UNRWA says it has sacked several people and ordered an investigation into information supplied by Israel.’

    ‘UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was “horrified by this news” and has called for a swift investigation.’

    Sound more like he should be resigning to me.

    ‘A number of UN facilities where Gazans had taken shelter have been hit in Israeli air strikes.’

    This is the point where an ethical, unbiased news outlet tell us why – because it is absolutely relevant to the story. But the BBC are neither of those so they didn’t.

    This article has started life as a small sub-pane on the front page late at night when it should be BIG news. I’ll check if it’s gone by breakfast.

    No doubt it will go under the carpet along with the stories of Hamas using UN site like schools to launch attacks.

    ICJ orders Israel to prevent genocidal acts in Gaza but not to end war
    https://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-68097640

    As expected, the UN has said ‘it’s nearly genocide but it isn’t’. Meaning of course that it isn’t, but the want us to think it is.

    The BBC headline is meant to make us think that Israel ARE performing ‘genocidal acts’ and must stop it at once. In fact it says absolutely nothing at all. It just says don’t do them.

    The bit which really caught my eye was this:
    ‘The verdict on South Africa’s allegation of genocide is not expected for years’

    YEARS ???.

    What an utter corrupt farce the UN has become. Another EU style gravy train. No wonder the BBC revere them so much.

    Another swamp for Trump to drain.

    Why do those white reactionary European judges hold back the progress of Black Africans who don’t desert their homelands on that continent ?

    We are constantly told of the benefits of immigration to this country , socially, economically and morally .
    Well the countries of Africa need a leg up more than we do , and it won’t happen with this ‘ white saviour’ succour that’s being going on this last ,,,,, years .
    How can Africa go forward if we in the west soak up all the best and brightest that risk a leaky dingy to Be rescued by our Border Force once the French navy stops monitoring their sea journey ?
    Imagine if all those brave Albanians that eschewed the cross channel ferries and train and took an unorthodox means to get to the U.K. were sent to an African nation . Well the benefits to that continent would far outweigh what benefits we would get .
    Only the non virtuous would dispute it .

    It’s our duty to send all the migrants to Africa .
    Starting with Rwanda , and spread out from there .

    BBC and Guardian , do your duty.

    Antoinette Lattouf: ABC presenter sacked over Gaza post ignites row in Australia
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-68064851

    The BBC are outraged by this woman being taken off air for one show – all the way at the other side of the world.

    Why ? – she was sacked for her pro-Palestinian bias of course (she is a Muslim).

    Another trash BBC agenda article full of vague assertions and outrage from people like HRW (Human Rights Watch) who are a corrupt far-left activist bunch of hypocrite who only care about using suffering for the far-left agenda.

    And for no reason whatsoever, the BBC insert their own picture from Getty:

    .. which I suspect the idiot who wrote the article thinks it proves HRW are correct that ‘Israel are using starvation as a weapon’.

    Donald Trump must pay $83.3m for defaming E Jean Carroll
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-68109999

    Not interested in the story. It’s more political persecution and is so ridiculous, it exposes those who do not admit it for what they are.

    But in EVERY story I check where the leftist fascists are trying their hardest to destroy Trump, the judge is always a Democrat.

    In this case Lewis A Kaplan – appointed by Clinton.

    As I keep saying, I firmly believe the modern Left are the new Nazis. They grow more confident every time the media let them get away with something.

        Yep….all those post office employees who protest their innocence having been found guilty originally must pay the Post Office damages for its hurt feelings and reputational damage.

        Remarkable that defending yourself and claiming you are innocent [and why do we have an appeals system?] is now not allowed in America?

        Seems you can just walk into a court with your lawyer, make a spurious allegation with no proof, can’t remember even what year it was or indeed any details about it, get a guilty verdict on that very vague basis and then sue when the ‘guilty’ party says its all rubbish.

        Shame Trump is more orange than black…if he’d been a shade blacker the BBC would be there fighting for him and complaining about political showtrials and injustice in the system.

    Post Office scandal: ‘Mum was sent to prison on my 10th birthday’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-68084538

    Full-on empathy piece here by the BBC’s finest.

    Apparently a boy’s mum was spent 5 months in prison when he was 10 and they told him she was in hospital because she was pregnant.

    ‘Adi thought she was in hospital and only discovered the truth eight years later. Now aged 23, he says he “hated” his mum for leaving him so abruptly.’
    No he didn’t BBC. You wrote that yourself to fit the narrative. A boy of 10 would accept what he was told.

    Of course the poor victim here is ‘Adi Misra’ who is not white. It links to another story about Alana Bates where of the most of the examples there are not white either : ‘Seema Misra’ and ‘the Sethi Family’ and ‘Shaia Saddiq’.

    Goodness I thought – were they ALL BAME ?. How absolutely racist we all are.

    So I checked something the BBC could not tarnish with racist discrimination and found the picture of the 39 who were cleared:

    _132267217_queue.jpg

    Oh dear BBC. Most are white. What shameless racists you are.

    It took three of them !. Each clearly trying to out-empathy the others.

    Post Office Horizon Scandal (again!)
    I’m very struck by the surly, defiant attitude of the Post Office investigators. Basically their defence seems to be “I was only obeying orders”. To be fair, they are foot soldiers for a flawed system in which they are told that the Postmasters are fraudsters. They are given powers second to none as investigators and seemed to have enjoyed those powers rather too much in an unthinking obedient way. Very little, if any, judgement seems to have been used by these people, ignorance being bliss.

    The Horizon fiasco should be a warning to all of us of the power bureaucracies can have over us, totalitarianism in action.

      Foot soldiers? These were people who knowingly broke the law in order to secure wrongful prosecutions. They are mostly ex Police and what you are seeing is the corrupt state of Policing in Britain and what they get up to when they think no one is looking.

      The rumour is that they were incentivised with a 40% bonus of what ever money they wrongfully recovered from an innocent sub Postmaster, and it appears they took full advantage of that bonus scheme. They even lied to parliament that they were incentivised.

      It wasn’t ignorance, they knew exactly what they were doing. In one instance a report came back saying there was no evidence of theft, but they illegally witheld that report and prosecuted for theft anyway.

      Lazy complacent judges simply believed the Post Office without question, even when a very few pertinent questions would have revealed something was wrong.

      The worst part though was that all three political parties knew this was going on, and instead of putting a stop to it, decided to cover it up. We know that Ed Davey appears to have corruptly done nothing because his brother worked for the solicitors prosecuting the sub postmasters, and he was rewarded with a £900 an hour ‘consultancy’.

      The only reason anything has been done now is because the outrage has grown to such a level the MPs cannot ignore it any longer. The next scandal will be when the utterly useless Tories fail to do anything about it as usual.

      To date no one has received any compensation save that ordered by the courts, and the corrupt government has clawed 99% of that back again.

      I’m told that my own case was raised in parliament this past week, but I’m not holding my breath.

      One of the issues rarely covered in the Ukraine conflict is the laughable performance of the worlds worst intelligence agency, the CIA.

      The CIA has a history of failure so appalling that they would be better as a carry on comedy team than a serious agency.

      The Russians played them for fools, and the CIA happy obliged. They had two divisions fighting in Maripupol which suffered battle fatigue and losses. The CIA knew about this. The Russians then sent the two divisions to defend a critical area on the front line, only they didn’t. They swapped the divisions numbers with fresh divisions which hadn’t suffered any losses, and the CIA fell for it hook line and sinker. They sent the Ukrainian army into a trap where they were all slaughtered.

      Similarly the Russians at night built a series of defensive trenches and traps, but the inept CIA didn’t notice the defences ahead of these under the trees. In addition forward troops had placed cameras to warn them of approaching enemies. The CIA told the Ukrainian artillery to shell the empty defensive positions and then when they thought they had been softened told the infantry to advance into the waiting untouched Russian defensive positions, who were warned of their approach by the cameras.

      Again total slaughter ensued.

      NATO is just a bunch of old men desperate to keep on fighting the battles of their youth, i.e. the cold war.
      The West needs an enemy and if there isn’t one it will invent one! NATO is on the verge of falling apart, and this is one last desperate attempt to hold it together. Putin and his staff are not unintelligent, they can see that Europe has destroyed itself by liberal woke idiocy, who would want to govern that mess? Even if he did have designs on invading, all he would need to do is wait and the Elites will do the job for him !

    Perma singles, single issue edition

    The formerly serious Times newspaper tends to present us with grave warnings about a dangerous new internet-based social phenomenon – the Incel ( = “involuntary celibate” – the male version of the species, obviously) – the Times tends to go about filling your internet search hits with a veritable plethora of danger signals

    What I found out as a woman on incel sites… When Katherine Denkinson joined a forum for lonely, misogynist men, she was shocked by the sheer hatred (Times, August 17 2021)

    Incels are crackpots and not philosophers… It would be a mistake to elevate grotesque misogyny combined with narcissism into an ideology (James Marriott, Times, August 19 2021)

    Massive rise in use of incel sites that call for women to be raped (Tom Ball, Times, January 03 2022)

    Women-hating ‘incel’ extremists pose new threat (Times, coming in mob-handed for this one – Fiona Hamilton, Duncan Gardham, Tom Ball, August 14 2021)

    Okay, we get the message. What prompted all this?

    Mass murder plot arrest exposes sinister ‘incel’ cult Tres Grenco [sic: Genco] allegedly wrote in a manifesto that he would “slaughter” women “out of hatred, jealousy and revenge” (Times, Charlie Mitchell, July 24 2021)

    Drawing such damning connections between a single (no Incel pun intended) nutcase and a wider demographic is studiously avoided of course in the case of the anti-Christian transgender man, perpetrator of the Nashville school shootings: Nashville school shooting: attacker’s dark warnings to friend ‘This is not a joke … something bad is about to happen,’ former pupil wrote before killing six (Times, March 28 2023)

    Although Tres Genco’s alleged manifesto was widely disseminated in the media for our inspection, nay instruction: Self-described incel pleads guilty to plot to kill thousands of women at Ohio State. Tres Genco, 22, said in writings that he planned to kill women out of “hatred, jealousy, and revenge” (Independent) – on the contrary, Aiden Hale’s (born Audrey Elizabeth Hale), a transgender man who killed three nine‑year‑old children and three adults at The Covenant School, Nashville, his/her/their (?) manifesto was most decidedly intended NOT to be made available for our consideration: Nashville school shooter Audrey Hale’s ‘manifesto’ leaked: Trans murderer vowed to kill ‘privileged white kids’ at Covenant School… Nashville PD had refused to release the information despite media requests (Daily Mail)

    Point being that our Times newspaper is more than happy to play a role in some regime directed targeted media campaign against these “involuntary celibate” chaps

    Whereas, this very morning on the Times frontpage, grabbing, mind you, the attentions of the gynaeceum that is our BBC for their top spot in their online news page press line-up, there’s a teaser for the Times Magazine wherein we read admiringly about a sub-set of the female of the species: Hot, eligible and not dating – not “Lady Incels” of course, but instead: Meet the perma singels… We’re the Perma-Singles — eligible, sexy and unattached… Marianne Power is 46, attractive, funny, with a bestselling book under her belt and her own home in a fashionable part of east London. (Times)

    But don’t be too despondent, all is not lost, lads… there’s plenty more fish in the sea… I want to fall in love, I’m on Tinder: Sharon Stone (Times)

    Whoof! – on the same frontpage exclaims a teaser for a Times Weekend article.

    But sorry, guys, don’t get your hopes up, this is: Woof! What your dog is trying to tell you

    Douglas Murray maintains his dislike of Trump in his Spectator column this week.
    Douglas recognises that Trump will be the Republican candidate with regret . We know that Douglas is a severe critic of all thing woke and has warned about the dangers of Islam for years. He has contempt for the way in which Western politicians have confronted both Wokism and Islam over the past decades. He is a very outspoken supporter of Israel’s right to defend itself. All excellent credentials .
    But he can’t stand Donald Trump . He can’t name another US leader who might take up the causes above that he, Douglas, espouses nor confront the dangers that we face. But although Trump has a proven record of fighting them on our behalf , Douglas wont support him.
    Why not? Well it seems that Trump is simply too uncouth , too vulgar, too brash for Douglas’s more refined tastes. It’s true that Trump is all of those things . But is there anyone else prepared to take of the hyperglobalists neo liberals and the Islamic bully dogs? No there isn’t . So Douglas it’s time to hold your nose , swallow your distaste and get right behind President Trump.

        Fed,

        What amuses me about the likes of Murray and others of that ilk is that their current careers are based purely on condemnation of the World today and selected prominent people and philosophies in it. We all know what the Marxist/communists are up too in their efforts to change the whole of the “evil” western world. They are very successful and will continue to be but, I digress. Anybody that has experienced planning and business management will understand that what the Commies are about, and that must need a massive team, much planning and a, “Mr Big” or collection of Mr. Big’s working clandestinely in the background out of sight.

        Perhaps Mr Murray et al should switch away from the symptoms and investigate who and what coalition are behind the Commies. Is it WEF, China, Islam, US Deep State or is it an unholy collection of them individually or all or what?

        Why do the likes of Murray avoid speculation like this? Perhaps they cannot deal with the bigger picture.

      Murray is good for the cause on balance, but I think he’s going a bit wonkey at the moment. Personal success has gone to his head. I think he wants to become a Yank from what I’ve heard him say recently.

      More Confusion over where exactly Douglas Murray Stands

      Se. My post re DM column in the Spectator above.

      Then later this morning I read his column in the Telegraph where he says that unless the invasion of the US southern border is stopped the USA may well cease to be United and ultimately cease to exist. All of which could happen quite quickly . ( I think that he means within a decade or so)
      He grudgingly writes that President Trump tried to tackle the problem with the wall but the Biden administration like all those that had gone before has done nothing other than open the flood gates even more widely. He says that even the ludicrous policy of Open Cities , when Democrat run cities said that illegal migrants were welcome and would not face any consequences, are now unable to cope with the illegals bused to them by furious southern states and want the open borders policy to end.
      Even after writing this article Douglas seems unable to bring himself to admit the obvious, either get behind Trump or face collapse of the USA!
      It’s a hell of a price to pay for finding Trump’s behaviours so boorish and uncouth that you won’t support him!

    Yesterday SkyNews formally apologised
    “The Sky News presenter in question is Belle Donati, formerly of Al Jazeera.
    A quick flick through her timeline will assure you that this wasn’t a slip of the tongue. It’s how she thinks.”

    @SkyNews say “recognise the complete inappropriateness of this comparison & the offensive nature of those comments.
    Sky News would like to apologise unreservedly for the comparison & to @dannydanon personally”

    Should we return all the reparations ‘gold’ that we looted from Germany in the wake of WW1?

    Logically we should…if we return gold items ‘looted’, as the BBC describes it, from the Ashanti in Ghana, which were given to us as a form of reparations, shouldn’t we return Germany’s gold?

    And shouldn’t all those statues of ‘slavers’ be put back up? Erm…I mean, the gold and riches from the Ashanti came from slavery basically…their economy blossomed when they had slaves doing the agricultural labour….and of course the Ashanti were warlike…those slaves came from somewhere….lucky to be slaves as the Ashanti liked a bit of human sacrifice…as well as a bit of empire building attacking their neighbours continuously…hence the neighbours asked the British to help them…and they fought with the British to defeat the Ashanti.

    So yeah…let’s celebrate, respect and return items resonant of slavery, human sacrifice, war and empire…and put the statues back up……the Ashantis who did more than most to capture and provide the slaves for the slave trade.

    Funnily the BBC isn’t too keen to remind us of the truth about the Ashanti empire and the realities of why and who fought them.

    The News Quiz yesterday repeated 12.30pm today .

    Last week a top Tory criticised it for being anti Tory .
    This week the programme replies by the very thing the BBC is best in the world for : sneering .

    They show the usual contempt for their critics . Their attitude is How Can You Not Be On Our Side We Know Better . No doubt smirking and winking to each other that there are Others to them .

      I presume it’s this.
      No chance the BBC will give it any oxygen. They seem to think they are entitled to ‘cancel’ many people on the Right.

      Increased police presence expected in Telford for Tommy Robinson protest
      https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/local-hubs/telford/2024/01/27/protest-and-march-to-take-place-in-telford-town-centre-today/

      ‘The event, which will include a screening of Robinson’s latest documentary focusing on Child Sexual Exploitation’

      One might expect the Left to support such a video. But unfortunately the ‘abuse of children’ card is trumped by the ‘protect Muslims’ card being played with the ‘hate the Right’ joker. Another example that they don’t really care one bit about who does what to who. Only the agenda matters.

      Whenever I see Tommy mentioned now, I can’t help thinking about that stupid, stupid woman calling him a racist and – when he challenged her to give an example – she couldn’t and start shrieking ‘racist’ again and again.

      Sums the Left up perfectly for me. Motivated by hate and not much else.

    A tip for those who, like me, submit multiple complaints to the BBC and get annoyed by the “You have recently submitted this form” message and its consequent delay period:

    Open multiple complaints pages in multiple tabs before starting, and then fill them in one-by-one. No forced delay when doing this!

    HTH 😉

    A bit late but ,

    Yesterday on TWATO , the subject; conscription .

    The Beeboid let slip when he said that the country was more homogeneous [ dictionary definition; formed of similar ] in 1914 and 1939 than it is today !
    Now that’s something, because the class distinctions were much much wider then than they are today . So why ( not asked by the BBC ) would the people then feel more similar to each other and fight for each other than people today ?

    Talking of the elephant in the room ,

    What is going to happen to all these fit young men ( BBC speak ; doctors and scientists) who illegally entered our country if we are at war with another country ?
    Are they going to volunteer or be conscripted to fight ?
    The authorities know where they are , after all they’ve been housing them , giving benefits to them and issuing them with driving licences so they can work for Deliveroo .

    “A right-wing cabal, largely unaccountable, is waging war on the principles that made our public broadcaster great. It must not succeed”

    This would be ‘must be getting it about idiotic’ discussion attempts?

    Certainly the imposition of cack handed poor optics types by cack handed govt. types has handed the left-wing cabal, all unaccountable, who currently churn out what makes the BBC an unprincipled mess, a nifty distraction.

    So the SNP line was that Boris Johnson et al were “human beings” who were under “some of the most intense pressure” and so should be cut some slack?
    Funny, I don’t remember that.

    Nor, clearly, did the BBC babe.

    If the Bullshit Broadcasting Corporation isn’t biased, why is everything on their webshite red? To be truly impartial their corporate colouring should be rainbow coloured, hang on some other “impartial ” entity has nicked that. Revert to deadtree press colours, black print on white background, would be about right 85% white, 13% black and 2% pink for the uphill gardeners.
