    Wild West ? nope, the dregs of Africa, say it like it is:

    “Wild West Britain: Moment teen attacks passerby with a knife as police arrest 14 and 15-year-old and seize machete after thieves use e-bikes to snatch seven mobile phones from victims in south east London.

    Meanwhile, four teenagers were convicted of two murder charges each after police detectives pieced together a complex case through detailed analysis of CCTV footage.

    Alagie Jobe, 19, Hussain Bah, 19, a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old were convicted of two counts of murder last Friday at Inner London Crown Court.”

    The seige of Paris enters a new phase as the farmers have begun burning tyres across the Autoroutes. This damages the asphalt deep down meaning that even if they are removed the road cannot be used until it’s repaired.

    https://news.sky.com/story/uk-drivers-warned-over-french-protest-chaos-10351592

    There are rumours of these protests spreading to Ireland and then to England, but we don’t have as many famers here and there are huge agri businesses not small independent farmers.

    There is the possibility of food shortages in the Uk in the not so distant future.

    Europe is finished, condemned to death by its deluded, third-rate elites
    By; Alistair Heath, writing in the DT today.

    The continent is incapable of recovering from its present economic, military and demographic crises…
    (excerpt)
    …….there is no way back for a European continent that has embraced nihilism, post-Christian paganism, illiberalism and the politics of envy, that believes that saving the planet requires shutting down successful industries and impoverishing its people, that cannot face down Islamist extremism and anti-Semitism, and that won’t reform its welfare state.
    ….
    The EU population will peak at 453.3 million in two years’ time, then slump to 419.5 million by 2100, despite massive immigration, Eurostat predicts. The population will age drastically, driven by a collapse in the birth rate. Welfare states will implode, with taxes rocketing on the young to pay for healthcare and pensions for the old. The Euro-elites’ only answer, even more migration, will empower potentially dangerous extremists. In France, Germany, Belgium and elsewhere, the failure to integrate many recent migrants, and the ruling class’s answer – to lie that all is well – is paving the way for a cataclysm.

    The gulf in living standards between America and Europe keeps on widening. In the final quarter of 2023, US GDP grew by an annualised 3.3 per cent; the Eurozone grew by zero per cent and the German economy shrank again. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine didn’t help, but Europe shouldn’t have become so dependent on Russian gas.
    ….
    The continent’s high-tax, high regulation model has caused decades of under-performance, and now Emmanuel Macron, the EU and the Dutch and German governments are deliberately shutting down swathes of their agriculture to meet net-zero targets. The Germans are destroying their car industry, and Europe will import Chinese electric vehicles instead. Decades of “industrial strategy” and subsidies have failed to create a world-class European tech industry. The continent’s economic suicide is already triggering an exodus of the best and brightest.
    …..
    It beggars belief that so many of the middle-class British Remainers and Rejoiners, who will help propel Labour to victory this year, are still so unfathomably ignorant about the true state of Europe’s economy and society. Blinded by anti-Tory hatred, obsessed by shiny TGVs and the memories of their pleasant holidays in southern Europe, they assume that things must – just must – be better in Europe.

    Almost all Labour MPs privately believe that the solution to our own lack of growth is to rejoin the single market or customs union, even though these have failed to save Europe’s own economies. How can further increasing our ties with a zero-growth continent or a shrinking German economy do anything for Britain? It can’t
    …..
    Britain is in an appalling state, but so is Europe. The Brexiteers’ Euro-pessimism has been vindicated; the problem is that the establishment refused to use Brexit to break with Brussels’ regulatory philosophy and to reorient our economy away from stagnant EU markets. Britain is therefore increasingly suffering from the same pathologies as Europe, and facing a similar terminal decline. This isn’t an argument for more EU, but one for even less, as well as radical domestic change. Europe’s gradual eclipse is accelerating, and it would be absurd for any British government to consider realigning the country with it.

    +++++++++++++++++
    This is a deeply depressing read, but its the best I have read today on what the true situation facing our country is. Its worse than the 1970’s, its also worse than the 1940;s when the elites thought that the answer was ‘a pact with Germany’. Only Churchill gave us hope. The elites thought they would cleanse the environment through what they called ‘eugenics; which is very much like net zero in that it kills people who are not ‘one of them’.

    Thanks to the recent closure of Port Talbot Steelworks; to meet ridiculous and totally made-up net zero targets, we can never again build ships or have any heavy industry, tanks or weapons that require steel. Our elites think the solution is to rejoin the EU if not the first year the second in a next Labour government. For those in the BBC and its media allies, they never left the EU dream of controlling the planet. Its chilling, yet at current rate it will all become true, even if the Conservatives hang on in office, net zero will finish off Europe. UK will be better but not by much. Poverty will be the default, the BBC employed to obscure that we are poorer, less mobile, unhealthy and swamped with hostile immigrants.

    Golders Green…the BBC’s very own ‘Bermuda Triangle’ where news about Jews simply vanishes.

    Did they ever get around to reporting that a Muslim had been charged with an anti-Semitic attack yesterday? Don’t think so.

    Today we see Tory MP for Golders Green stand down after years of attacks and threats….BBC being very slow to report this. I’m sure they’re double checking all their facts and dotting all the i’s and crossing all the T’s but if it had been a Muslim MP being forced out by the Far-Right it would be instant headline news regardless of fact. The BBC would pretty much publish and be damned if wrong….much like Bowen who regrets none of his dangerous lies.

    You suspect the BBC thinks attacks on MP’s who speak up for Jews and Israel are ‘resistence’ and they deserve it….and that we can’t have a ‘backlash’ against Muslims which we would have if we published anything negative about them…..such as Rotherham and Rochdale…and oh so many other towns and cities. It’s OK though to have a backlash against Jews undoubtedly incited in part by lies from BBC journalists.

    The BBC made a huge song and dance about Boris using the term ‘surrender Act’ claiming that this was dangerous language that put MP’s at risk of attack. Complete rubbish of course…but an MP for a mainly Jewish constituency who actually suffers threats and real attacks…..em….er….look away, say nothing.

    Daily Mail….

    ‘A veteran minister is to quit frontline politics after being subjected to a campaign of death threats and intimidation over his pro-Israel views.

    Justice Minister Mike Freer told Rishi Sunak today that he will step down at the election following a string of threats and incidents, which culminated in an ‘arson’ attack on his constituency office in December.

    The 63-year-old has suffered more than a decade of intimidation and says he feels ‘lucky to be alive’ after narrowly escaping a confrontation with terrorist killer Ali Harbi Ali, who murdered fellow Tory MP Sir David Amess.’

        BBC only 10 hrs late to report it.

        It mentions the near miss with David Amess’ killer but omits the attacks by Muslims Against Crusades that Freer has mentioned previously.

        They’re pushing the generic hate angle. Labour MP has already chipped in talking about “the dangers of social media.” Gone by lunchtime…

    I was wrong. Stephen Flynn, the HOC SNP leader, didn’t ask questions about Gaza at PMQ’S. Instead his questions were a good old fashioned left wingers hit on bankers bonuses.

    Nicola Sturgeon, what a pathetic specimen. At the Covid Inquiry she says she wished she’d locked down earlier!

    She also said, if I heard correctly, that she hoped Covid would be a political opportunity. What a strange admission.

      ‘The right to lie in the service of power is guarded with considerable vigour and passion.’

      ‘Global authoritarianism’ where corporations run the world with a thin facade of democracy to fool the People into accepting their lot…..the ‘Manufacture of consent’…note the government ‘nudge unit’….part of which is the BBC.

      The Great Reset, the WEF, tech companies and the media in lockstep with politicians who continually introduce ever more draconian laws in order to ‘protect us’ [from ourselves]…or rather so ‘the agenda of the powerful can be pursued without opposition’….not a conspiracy, it’s real and predicted by Chomsky in 1998….read this and you can’t help thinking ‘wow…that’s exactly what’s happening’….

      ‘You’ll have nothing and be happy’ said the WEF…..Chomsky predicted…‘There’s a very committed effort to convert the US into something resembling a Third World society, where a few people have enormous wealth and a lot of others have no security …’

      ‘ The big transnationals want to reduce freedom by undermining the democratic functioning of the states in which they’re based, while at the same time ensuring the government will be powerful enough to protect and support them.

      p19
      … it’s ridiculous to talk about freedom in a society dominated by huge corporations. What kind of freedom is there inside a corporation? They’re totalitarian institutions – you take orders from above and maybe give them to people below you. There’s about as much freedom as under Stalinism. [and now they try to control what you think and what you say…even in your private life]

      p29
      The goal is a society in which the basic social unit is you and your television set. If the kid next door is hungry, it’s not your problem. If the retired couple next door invested their assets badly and are now starving, that’s not your problem either.

      p29
      Boards of directors are allowed to work together, so are banks and investors and corporations in alliances with one another and with powerful states. That’s just fine. It’s just the poor who aren’t supposed to cooperate.

      p34
      Business wants the popular aspects of government, the ones that actually serve the population, beaten down, but it also wants a very powerful state, one that works for it and is removed from public control.

      p35
      There’s a very committed effort to convert the US into something resembling a Third World society, where a few people have enormous wealth and a lot of others have no security …

      p35
      Now that … workers are superfluous, what do you do with them? First of all, you have to make sure they don’t notice that society is unfair and try to change that, and the best way to distract them is to get them to hate and fear one another.

      p37
      Both prisons and inner-city schools target a kind of superfluous population that there’s no point educating because there’s nothing for them to do. Because we’re a civilized people, we put them in prison, rather than sending death squads out to murder them.

      p41
      You need something to frighten people with, to prevent them from paying attention to what’s really happening to them.

      p43
      The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate. ‘

    Nine people, including children and police officers, have been taken to hospital after a “corrosive substance” was thrown in south London, police say.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-68161937

    A man was seen fleeing the “horrific incident” at Lessar Avenue, Lambeth.

    A woman and her two young children were taken to hospital for treatment. Three others, believed to have come to their aid, also needed medical help.

    Three police officers, who responded to the incident, sustained what are believed to be minor injuries.

    The Met said no arrest has been made, but that police helicopters were being used in the search for the assailant.

    London Assembly Member Marina Ahmad said on X (formerly Twitter) that there had been a traffic collision “with a man assaulting occupants”

    Bristol stabbing: Mother urges parents to search children’s bags
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-bristol-68160356

    So we are getting night-time vigils, a bizarre ‘balloon release’ and lots and absolutely buckets of empathy across multiple articles about this stabbing of two white boys.

    No details about who has been arrested of course – and there is a high chance they will be white too. Their colour would have been known before the story was pushed to the top of the agenda and sent out throught the BBC’s TNI agenda-promotion channel to the multitude of small news sites who will promote it further.

    The BBC would have you believe this violence between white boys is the problem blighting our society. When we all know it’s not.

    This is:

    Look at this story.
    Four teens guilty of murdering two 16-year-old boys in south-east London
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-68153614

    They don’t even show it to us : it’s gone straight to regions. Lets see why.

    Apparently 3 people in a car rammed another person off his bike, got out and stabbed him to death repeatedly with ‘sword like knives’. The BBC don’t tell us that bit, they tone it down. Just as they don’t tell us ‘During the attack, which lasted less than a minute, Charlie was stabbed eight times including in the head, penetrating his brain. ‘

    Here he is: Charlie Bartolo. Not black, but of immigrant origin for sure:
    _132495641_976_02photo_j.jpg.webp

    The reason for this attack was simply the ‘postcode’. These barabrian savages just wanted to murder someone from that area.

    During the attack, one of them accidentally stabbed his ‘friend’ who got back in the car with them. What did they do ?.

    ‘They drove for a mile to Titmuss Avenue and then made the choice to abandon the car and Kearne behind to die on the pavement.’

    This is the scum the BBC should be focussing on. These are the ones destroying our society. But no : they bury it.

    Perhaps the picture of two of those who did it will give us a clue. The other two are too young to be identified.Something else we see regularly which is extremely alarming but which the BBC also ignore.

    Here they are:

      These black guys inflicting such a violent murder on a random person from another postcode because he is white is a ‘Stephen Lawrence’ racist murder times 10. Just imagine if he had been butchered in the same way.

      Yet this one is buried straight into ‘regions’ where few people see it.

      It’s more racist double standards on an epic scale by the BBC.

          The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement was issued on August 18, 1988. The Islamic Resistance Movement, also known as the HAMAS, is an extremist fundamentalist Islamic organization operating in the territories under Israeli control. Its Covenant is a comprehensive manifesto comprised of 36 separate articles, all of which promote the basic HAMAS goal of destroying the State of Israel through Jihad (Islamic Holy War). The following are excerpts of the HAMAS Covenant:​​​​​​​​​​​​​
          Anti-Semitic incitement:

          The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry out: ‘O Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.” (Article 7)

          “The enemies have been scheming for a long time … and have accumulated huge and influential material wealth. With their money, they took control of the world media… With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the globe… They stood behind the French Revolution, the Communist Revolution and most of the revolutions we hear about… With their money they formed secret organizations – such as the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs and the Lions – which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests… They stood behind World War I … and formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the world. They were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains… There is no war going on anywhere without them having their finger in it.” (Article 22)

          “Zionism scheming has no end, and after Palestine, they will covet expansion from the Nile to the Euphrates River. When they have finished digesting the area on which they have laid their hand, they will look forward to more expansion. Their scheme has been laid out in the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’.” (Article 32)

          “The HAMAS regards itself the spearhead and the vanguard of the circle of struggle against World Zionism… Islamic groups all over the Arab world should also do the same, since they are best equipped for their future role in the fight against the warmongering Jews.” (Article 32)

          ​Goals of the HAMAS:

          ​”The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.” (Article 6)

          On the destruction of Israel:

          “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (Preamble)

          The exclusive Moslem nature of the area:

          “The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Holy Possession] consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day. No one can renounce it or any part, or abandon it or any part of it.” (Article 11)

          “Palestine is an Islamic land… Since this is the case, the Liberation of Palestine is an individual duty for every Moslem wherever he may be.” (Article 13)

          The call to jihad:

          “The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews’ usurpation, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised.” (Article 15)

          “Ranks will close, fighters joining other fighters, and masses everywhere in the Islamic world will come forward in response to the call of duty, loudly proclaiming: ‘Hail to Jihad!’. This cry will reach the heavens and will go on being resounded until liberation is achieved, the invaders vanquished and Allah’s victory comes about.” (Article 33)

          Rejection of a negotiated peace settlement:

          “[Peace] initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement… Those conferences are no more than a means to appoint the infidels as arbitrators in the lands of Islam… There is no solution for the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility.” (Article 13)

    In December 2002, Shaied Nazir, Ahmed Ali Awan and Sarfraz Ali were unanimously found guilty of Parker’s murder and sentenced to life imprisonment, each receiving minimum terms ranging from 16 to 18 years. A fourth defendant, Zairaff Mahrad, was cleared of murder and manslaughter.[7]

    A memorial plaque for Parker is located in the Netherton area of Peterborough where a football match is played each year in his memory.

    There should be rules about how things like this are reported.

    Alec Baldwin pleads not guilty to new involuntary manslaughter charge over Halyna Hutchins’s Rust shooting
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-68162923

    This whole thing stinks to high heaven – and you can bet this darling of the Trump haters has friends in very important places.

    From the original:
    ‘The FBI recently finished and sent a report to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office. Officials found that the weapon, meant to be a prop, could not be fired without pulling the trigger.’

    Proving Baldwin is lying.

    Then we learn the FBI actually broke the gun and what do you know, the prosecution dropped the case.

    Now we get:
    ‘New Mexico prosecutors say there is new forensic evidence.’
    Which is:
    ‘They said doing so had revealed that the incident could only have taken place if the trigger had been pulled.’

    So what’s new about that ?.

    The people who handled this prosecution should be up in the dock with Baldwin. As should his lawyers : I read somewhere they bullied them into dropping the case.

    Funny how this stench happens so often around what the Leftists get up to yet the MSM never question any of it.

    The astute reader can of course extrapolate that to how they behaved after the accusations of the rigged election. No questions, no demands for enquiries – they just labelled everyone who suggested it as liars right from the start.

      Ah another BBC free day .._ but I’m getting vibes about the coming US election . If president trump were to win – if Obama failed to sufficiently fix the vote – get trumped up convictions for killing the first born or whatever – is the democrat narrative being laid down for the election to have been stolen ?

      Searching the US for evidence of ‘voter fraud ‘? Planting false voters in various states to undermine the vote? Running case after case to challenge the result ?

      I recognise – base on the planning and skill of the 2020 election theft – that it is unlikely to be an open fair election – but just imagine ….
      And imagine that Christian and Katty and orla and Fergal and Clive and huw ( sorry not huw ) will be back on their daily ‘100 days ‘ …. In the way they did for Biden ( or notably didn’t )….

    Watch: Footage shows last residents’ struggle to leave Ukraine town
    https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-europe-68139178

    I was somewhat shocked to watch this video : it gave a fair overview of what was going on and was not stuffed with cheap empathy and BBC clones pushing themselves in front of the camera to tell us what other people think and putting words in their mouths.

    Not sure how old it is though – from what I saw these seiges progress by Ukranian soldiers being ordered to stay and fight long after their route to withdraw is cut off by the Russians. Shortly after that it all goes quiet because they are all getting killed or captured and we aren’t allowed to know about things like that.

    Then I read the text and – of course – it’s not BBC at all. Someone else did it and gave it to the BBC. Without the usual soulful background piano music.

    Same as everything they put out these days. If they do it themselves, they simply cannot stop themselves from stuffing it with agenda. Anything they put out these days which is half decent was made by someone else.

    I wouldn’t normally post the financial interviews but this piece of Geo-political analysis is well worth watching for an impartial view of what is going on in the Middle East.

    Netanyahu is so gung ho, he is creating a situation in the Middle East which even America cannot win. It’s quite possible the conscription mooted is in reality to fight in the Middle East and not against Russia at all.

    As many Israeli leaders have boasted, they are the ones who run America and unfortunately since Brexist the useless Tories have allowed Britain to become a puppet state of America.

    Have a watch and realise that the stakes are much bigger than you probably ever imagined.

    Ukraine’s security service says it has uncovered corruption in an arms purchase by the military worth about $40m (£31m).

    The SBU said five senior people in the defence ministry and at an arms supplier were being investigated.

    It said the defence officials signed a contract for 100,000 mortar shells in August 2022.

    Payment was made in advance, with some funds transferred abroad, but no arms were ever provided.

    Corruption has been a major stumbling block in Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union.

    Bill Wiggin MP and his bypass joins in the grand national tradition of our politics edition

    Zelensky seeks to remove Ukraine’s top general… Valeriy Zaluzhny, commander-in-chief of country’s armed forces, set to lose job amid reports of strained relationship (Telegraph, Tuesday)

    Zelensky U-turns after telling Ukraine’s top general he would be sacked… President keeps Valery Zaluzhny as commander-in-chief of armed forces under pressure from military top brass, amid rumours of growing rift (Times, Wednesday)

    Kremlin mocks Zelensky for attempted sacking of military chief… “One thing remains obvious – the Kyiv regime has a lot of problems, things are not going well there” (Telegraph)

    You say Zelensky, I say Zaluzhny… let’s call the whole thing off

    Brussels has made a last-minute offer to the Hungarian premier to secure his support for for its €50bn of aid to Ukraine… amid frenzied diploamtic efforts to reach a deal (FT)

    As the likelihood of a military coup in Kiev to oust Zelensky looms (other spellings are available, although apparently western foreign policy options other than endless costly proxy-war, are not) regime change now looks to be on the cards in Ukraine.

    Meanwhile, over there at the BBC it looks as though they’ve given up on their cherished notion of regime change at the Kremlin: Vladimir Putin: Many Russians see no alternative candidate as election looms (BBC)

    Them elections, eh? They do seem to rather loom…

    As the election looms, we must be alert to Trump’s threats of vigilante justice (Robert Reich, Guardian)

    Pakistan: Imran Khan convicted on dubious charges as election looms (Irish Legal News – there’s a joke there somewhere)

    In local news: Herefordshire MPs bypass comments come as election looms (Herefordshire Times) – worth quoting the commentary here more fully I feel as the microcosm may well be extrapolated to the macrocosm: I do wonder sometimes how much time and certainly column inches have been wasted on talking about the prospect of a bypass for Hereford.

    Here we see yet another carrot, with MP Sir Bill Wiggin “highlighting the importance of a bypass”.

    When will people realise they have been flogging a dead horse for years? It’s been heated debate for decades, often bandied about around election times but obviously not hot enough to actually result in any realistic outcome. (Andy Morgan, Hereford) – well observed and very well said sir.

    We may as well now segueway to: Sturgeon accused of Covid “crocodile tears” (Telegraph) – what could possibly, we wonder, have prompted her idea to have a little blub when defending her Lockdown era record?

    Good Morning Britain stars cringe watching back Matt Hancock’s ‘tears’ as he claims he ‘lost it altogether’ in 2020 interview… The former health secretary appeared on the ITV show two years ago, leaving viewers confused and some questioning whether he was faking tears as he spoke about the pandemic. (giveaway Metro)

    Good old “nippy sweetie” Nicola, never let it be said she was outdone in any of her covid responses by any Englishman…

    The ex-SNP leader choked up as she rejected claims that she had pushed for fights with Boris Johnson’s government to boost her Scottish independence cause. (Independent)

    Speaking of independence…

    It would be nice think Britain actually had an independent foreign policy of our own: Shapps in talks to send carrier to Red Sea… talks in the US… senior Biden administration officials in Washington (Telegraph)

    Or an independent trade policy of our own: Brexiteer backlash on Sunak’s deal with DUP… because of fears it will hamper Britain’s ability to break free from EU rules (Telegraph)

    Or indeed, an independent legal system of our own: Rishi Sunak has ruled out a radical move to opt out of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) (Indepenedent – the irony of that newspaper title becomes sadly apparent)

    To brighten the mood somewhat one does have options within our press line-up – there’s the jokey blokey Daily Star: Throwing a sickie is good for you… Cheeky duvet day helps slackers be creative

    Then there’s his master’s voice, the Rishi lackey loyalist Daily Express: 5,600 migrants indentified for first Rwanda flights

    I’m visualising the starting line at the Grand National with the massed ranks of a veritable cavalry regiment of hopeful runners and riders, under starter’s orders, and ready to set off over the 30 fences and two laps of the punishing Aintree Racecourse

    We go over now to Peter O’Sullevan in the commentary box

    “And they’re off… it’s the six-foot, bearded Iraqi Boy out in front, leading from Vulnerable and In Need of NHS Treatment… behind him comes Gay Somali, in the Queen’s rainbow colours, and Albanian Peddlar in the sheepskin noseband, now just a nose in front… as they approach the first fence… the Red Wall back bench opposition… all safely over that… but there’s several fallers at the Chair of the House of Lords committee… half the field have pulled up before even reaching the Channel Turn of the European Court… the National this year sponsored by Deliveroo, Uber, Pret a Manger and Ali’s Car Wash & Valet Service of Bradford… the race judge in blinkers of course… there’s bound to be an appeal… now out in front it’s the irish-trained Lone Wolf – ignore him, he’s just a loose riderless horse… as the stewards have got their work cut out for them attempting to coral him safely out of harms way… also interfering with the rest of the field is Bound For Rotherham… his stable lad awarded the top prize for grooming before the start, next come the fillies with the middle eastern owners Love You Longtime and Plenty Dollar out of Modern Slave Trade… very few of the starters are still standing as they come to the final hurdle… and it’s all down to the last fence… fresh from the winner’s enclosure Sir Keir Starmer comes on waving a red flag… but there’s no one left to finish… so it’s race abadoned!” The punters tear up their betting tickets
