    They did it to Ronald Reagan. After his death the MSM praised him in spite of during his life never having a good word for him. So yesterday we had nothing but good words for Derek Draper although when he was Brown”s henchmen we still only had good words.

      Most of them were unkind, but nothing like the nasty, evil bile we get from third-rate ‘comedians’ and other dross who infest the channels nowadays.

    You can o to the web page of the Socialist Workers Party , you can see the web of the Chinese Communist Party , you can get the web of the German Die Linke party , which is a coalition of left wing parties including the SED which ruled East Germany , responsible for many German deaths and anti democratic regime .

    But you can’t , still , go to the website of the AFD , Alternative Fur Deutschland.

        Thank you Stew ,

        Unfortunately, for those of us only semi computer literate, it’s hard to get on .
        Plus it’s only in German.

        Previously we could easily go to an English language section and see for ourselves.. . Unfiltered and undoctored by the BBC .

        The point remains why are the AFD , a libertarian party worried but not communists .

    Exceptional edition

    Our BBC online news website’s press review headline refers to: Killers ‘unmasked’ – and Yessiree bob! Boy, are they unmasked… publically shamed, pilloried in the public square, pelted with epithets – and whipped… all the way to the gallows (metaphorically speaking that is)

    The UK football coaching book descibes a tactic known as the high press and US basketball terminology cites a strategy known as the full-court press

    Warped teens with ‘thirst for killing’ planned brutal and sadistic murder… Pure Evil… Vile thugs (Daily Mirror); Unmasked: Evil monsters… The sadistic young murderers… (Daily Express); As twisted teenagers named and jailed… (Daily Mail); Teenager’s lust for fame led to murder… was obsessed with serial killers and had ‘desire to kill again’(Telegraph); ‘Exceptionally brutal’: Teens jailed for murder (Guardian)

    Exceptional coverage there, I think you’ll agree. Particularly from the left-leaning Guardian – a paper not best known for its sensationalism in terms of the headlining of crime reports. I’m guessing the NHS isn’t in so much of a crisis mode this week.

    As always, do draw your own conclusions.

    I seem to get the message we don’t think more public funding for youth clubs would have helped in this case?

    [Idris] Elba put pressure on the government when this month he launched the Don’t Stop Your Future campaign to tackle youth violence. As well as a ban on zombie knives and machetes, the campaign is calling for more funding for youth services. (Guardian, Thursday 25th January)

    There are four national titles that today neglect this exceptional crime story (on their frontpages at least) and for that omission (perhaps) they find themselves relegated to the bottom end of the BBC’s press line-up.

    The Times leads with: Outcry over asylum for suspect in alkali attack… Home Office was unable to reject third attempt

    And to be fair to the gynaeceum that is our BBC staff press pickers their newspaper review does (secondarily) reference the Times headline: Newspaper headlines: Killers ‘unmasked’ and Clapham suspect asylum ‘outcry’ (BBC)

    My chemical romance

    The perpetually, chronically, coronaphobic left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper remarks on: Covid jabs to go on sale for over-12s in chemists… Superdrug in talks to offer private vaccinations for first time – call this next feature one of those funny clashing little narrative-busting juxtapositions – if you like – I shouldn’t comment: Tips to get well – and stay healthy (‘i’)

    The ‘i’ leads with: Cut income tax to ease cost of living crisis, voters urge Hunt – and carries the plea: Police plead with chemical attack suspect to hand himself in

    One tends to hear that plea when the plod’s dragnet doesn’t deliver glory for themselves with a suspect in cuffs within the first 48 hours or so and they start to feel public pressure for a result.

    FT Weekend signals: US payroll surge sinks rate cut bets – ah the globalist FT, where the headlines read like crossword puzzle clues.

    You’ve heard a lot about the cost of living… the jokey blokey Daily Star goes with the: Price of Love?

    In case you were wondering: £9.67 a day! …according to not very romantic boffins…

    What’s that? You want a calm down dear?

    Esther’s victory – was it ever in doubt? Vote on assisted dying closer as 107,000 sign petition (Daily Express – let’s not forget it’s the most loyal to Number 10 of any national print title) – nudge, nudge…

    The other night the BBC announced this
    ‘interest rates are to remain at 5.25%, the highest for 15 years’

    The aim clearly was to invoke a certain level of anti-government outrage.

    But since the interest rate was ‘remaining’ at 5.25%, it was presumably the highest rate for……..errrr……..one month.

    A truer description. But not quite so headline grabbing!!!

    Reference the alkali attack by the Afghanistan sex offender and failed asylum seeker eventually given asylum by a utterly pathetic tribunal, apparently because he had (conveniently) converted to Christianity and so would be at risk if he returned.

    On Toady the local female Labour MP was brought on to talk about the attacks. She barely mentioned them at all but launched into a left wing feminist tirade about evenly men not allowing women to be safe out on the streets.

    On sending failed asylum seekers back she had very little to say. But then, it’s always fun when the Far Left get their knickers in a twist when two activist agendas clash.
    The Toady presenter, needless to say, let her rant and did not call her to account.

    PS why is this story such headline news, now for three days? People are knifed to death all the time in Londonistan and the BBC don’t give a toss.

      Sluff – the methods used to ‘vet’ these invaders as to whether they are granted ‘asylum ‘ status is – I think – chaotic – sinister – maybe – with junior ( corrupt ) civil servants making decisions based on bribes and their woke beliefs .

      Politicians won’t do anything because they just want the numbers to ‘fall ‘ …. And care less what vermin are allowed in to cause suffering to taxpayers …btw I guess the alkali victim was a member of the ‘community ‘….

    Perhaps we should hand all asylum seekers over to organisations like the ones which extort the TV tax, and offer a bonus of a grand or two, for every illegal they deport, plus another few quid if they’re gone within a week.

    I bet beeboids would have the screaming hab-dabs at that, which would be even more satisfying!

    It’s a little-known fact that civil serpents in immigration spend on average, three days a month wittering on to each other about their pension prospects. The other two days they ‘work’ are spent looking out of the windows towards Wellesley Road.

      The man, a Malian national, went on a stabbing spree at around 7:35 am (0635 GMT) at the station, which operates domestic trains as well as those heading to Switzerland and Italy.

      One person suffered serious injuries to the abdomen while two others were lightly wounded, police said.

      A terrorist attack has been ruled out at this stage and an enquiry launched.

      Police arrested the suspected attacker, who showed signs of mental disorders, Paris police chief Laurent Nunes told reporters. “We found medicine on him which suggests he was undergoing treatment.”

    Propagandise R4 ‘Farming Today’ (“The latest news about food, farming and the countryside”)? “Nah” I hear you mutter. But no, earlier, our Worlds Most Trusted blatantly excelled themselves by a totally unbelievable bit of propaganda whose designs are so obvious it’s not true.

    I wouldn’t normally do this but here’s a link to something called a, “Podcast” if anyone is interested-
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qj8q/episodes/downloads

    Briefly, you will know that, hated by the BBC, the European farmers are jointly challenging European Governments and the EU to halt the intended destruction of their livelihoods/farms and starvation of humans. Yes?

    So, Farming Today interviews one, “Tim Stanley”, ‘who is’? (I hear you say), on his opinions over the farming disruption currently in Europe. Me? never heard of him but he spoke like someone who knows about ‘Farming’ things. “Tim but Dim” (henceforth, ‘TbD’) fits the bill.

    According to Tim, the European Farmers have been brainwashed into the nonsense that Governments + EU want to strip them of their businesses and farms. No says Tim: all “Conspiracy Theories”. I’ll hint no further about the nonsense spouted by, ‘TbD’s’ . Just look at, “Tim’s” biography, tells you all you need to know about Tim’s views on anything :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Stanley

    A right regular BBC ‘hanger-on’ / go-to acolyte & spouter of BBC policy.

    Oh, btw, TbD thought that British Farmers are stoic and sensible enough to see through the “Conspiracy Theories”. And hence, you have the BBC/Government message not too succinctly directed at the British Farming community.

    The end result of a Labour victory in the next General
    Election will be the further expansion of the Islamists
    objective of turning the UK into a theocracy.
    Even with just 4.5 million of the population they
    are well punching above their weight.

    With the acquiescence of media organizations , such as
    the BBC not reporting on such matters of a knife wielding
    fanatical anti-Semitic Islamist attacking Jews in Golders Green
    in NW London . Or as keeping as quiet as they can about
    grooming raping mostly Muslim gangs in towns all over England. As treating a British Pakistani anti-Semitic cricketer
    as a saint . Because of banter against him by colleagues. As
    the all but media partner of Hamas in the UK. By reporting
    everything that Hamas tells them as gospel . The BBC has
    nailed their colours to the mast. So far as Islamism is concerned.
    A Labour victory at the next General Election will show that
    in time that Labour will be more dependent on the Muslim vote
    as their population grows and grows. UNTIL the day comes. And
    it will, in the most four generations . When the Islamists in the UK
    wont need the Labour Party to do their bidding. And the BBC
    can start their morning programmes with the Adhern.
    Colonel Gaddafi of Lybya will have been proved right. That terrorism is not needed for
    a take over a country. Birth rates will do the job.

        This explains why there are so few deportations, as every deportation is a lost vote.
        As happened this week, you can literally assault police officers in broad daylight in New York, be released with no bail, give everyone the finger and *still* not be deported!!

      Adding, “Well, you can see the result in Germany. Our economy is in tatters, a wave of bankruptcies is sweeping the country. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of farmers, hauliers, entrepreneurs are being fleeced like Christmas geese.”

      “The 2002 Mecca girls’ school fire occurred on 11 March 2002 at a girls’ school in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and killed fifteen people, all young girls. Complaints were made that Saudi Arabia’s “religious police”, specifically the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, had prevented schoolgirls from leaving the burning building and hindered emergency services personnel because the students were not wearing modest clothing. ”

      According to at least two reports, members of the CPVPV, also known as Mutaween, would not allow the girls to escape or to be saved from the fire because they were “not properly covered”, and the mutaween did not want physical contact to take place between the girls and the civil defense forces for fear of sexual enticement, and variously that the girls were locked in by the police, or forced back into the building.[4][5][6]

    My apologies for being, once again, rather late to the party, but…

    Last Saturday’s Mail had a puff piece by the unlamented and useless former PM, Boris Johnson. Honestly, he’s gone from merely being a berk into becoming so bloody stupid he’d slot straight into a PG Wodehouse story about out of touch upper class twits. Boris Fink Nottle, the notoriously lecherous and light-fingered chum of Bertie Wooster. A buffoon of the first order.

    In this gormless piece he’s urging us Brits to relish the “opportunity” of national service. “Would I sign up to fight for King and country?” he muses. “Yes, Sah! Lance Corporal Johnson reporting for duty, Sah!”

    There then follows the usual litany of half-baked bollocks about why we have to be prepared to deter would be aggressors, like Vladmir Putin. Of course, at no time does he ever mention deterring potential acid throwing psychopaths from entering our country…which we actually could and should do…No Sah…

    Nor does he mention why a white working-class bloke should relish the opportunity of defending a country that clearly despises him. We are loathed by the powers that be…Our daughters are raped on an industrial scale and the man who is most hated is the chap who has brought this awful sin to our attention. There are thousands of these Pakistani paedophiles who will never face justice. While Tommy Robinson has been in nick more times than Boris has shagged some other geezer’s wife.

    The white working class is despised, mocked and ridiculed on a daily basis on the BBC. They don’t just dislike us, they hate us. If we are ever shown we’re depicted as being ignorant, yobbish, almost certainly racist and sexist and invariably drunken, tattooed and violent. And that’s on a good day…

    The army, navy and RAF have bent over backwards to promote minorities. Only a month ago white men were told they weren’t wanted as fighter pilots. Okay…

    But actually, they don’t need to worry… there’s no problem…thousands of fighting age men have been safely ferried from Calais to Dover, been clothed, fed, had all their medical problems sorted and housed in the best hotels that we can afford. There’s no need for “Tommy this and Tommy that” to come to the country’s rescue. I’m sure Abdul and Mohamed will show their gratitude by fighting for king and country…even though they didn’t show much appetite in fighting for their own countries…

    So, sorry Boris, Private Jeff will not be reporting for duty. Not this time, Sah!

    My conscription papers seem to have been lost in the post…Sah!

    Murderers, rapists (groomers) stabbers, drug dealers, benefit cheats and the whole lot of other traits they have in common, simply say “I’m a Christian now” and you’re in.
    Say “I’m gay” and you’re in.
    No if’s no buts….you’re in forever.

    When only one side plays by the rules.
    Of course, our so called civil ‘servants’ are stuffed full of woke virtue signalling gullible useless lefties so they rarely need an excuse to keep the doctors and scientists here and will pass the lot, straight off their dinghies, as new British citizens.

    I’ve made a list of everything I can think of where the ‘enrichers’ have ‘enriched’ (once) Great Britain.

      “….our so called civil ‘servants’ are stuffed full of woke virtue signalling gullible useless lefties….”. For my own observation from frequent meetings with various Gvt Depts, admittedly a few years ago, the CS is virtually all manned by foreigners. Got to be total now, a white minister merely retained to persuade the long suffering population that ‘whitee’ still exists.

    The latest one involves a 16 year old dead coloured boy – murdered after school at the danger hour which i see in 4pm weekdays ….

    There is no way to control the ferals – they live separate street lives with their own code – and really best avoided . A look -now – can get someone beaten or killed …

    In Thursday’s Newsshite, the BBC bravely addresses the story of the acid attack by the asylum seeker from Afghanistan.

    Well, not quite.

    In the studio discussion with Kirsty Squawk, the 2 guest MPs almost immediately and dismissively bat away any question about the bastard’s provenance or his residence status. And most definitely his religion.
    What they really want to talk about is the more nebulous subject of ‘violence against women’ and in particular ‘micro aggressions’.
    So, a muslim illegal immigrant from Afghanistan causes horrific injuries to a woman and her children, and what the girlies want to discuss is hurty emails.
    You see, the real problem is, basically, men. Yep, it’s them men again.

    Ah – sigh of relief – we’re back in our comfort zone, our happy place.

    Talk about avoiding the real subject.
    The cowardly BBC and cowardly MPs did the same thing over the murder of MP David Amess, blaming it on ‘online hate’ (those hurty emails again) instead of islam.

        What are nudges?
        Nudges mean thinking harder about the way people approach decisions and using those insights to design policy. In 2010, the Institute for Government set out some of those approaches in its MINDSPACE report, which suggests that both the messenger and the message were important and that defaults mattered. It remains the Institute’s most downloaded report.

        The approach depends a lot on experimentation, and the Nudge Unit has championed wider use of experiments in government.

    The below misinformation is now a jailable offence

    Government Criminalises ‘BBC Fake News’

    A new false communications offence will outlaw the BBC from intentionally sending false information and bolster a government clamp down on dangerous disinformation fear porn from its left-wing behavioural scientists.

    The government has introduced an offence to criminalise “BBC fake news” under the Online Safety Act.

    On Wednesday, the government announced that new offences have kicked in “meaning that BBC staff and left-wing behavioural scientists can face up to five years behind bars for their demeaning and dangerous actions.”
    It said that BBC online services now face a fleet of tough new jailable offences from today as offences for misinformation, disinformation, malinformation and propaganda are written into the statute book, after the Online Safety Act gained Royal Assent.

    A new false communications offence, will outlaw the intentional sending of false information by the BBC that could cause psychological harm to viewers. This means that BBC staff will be committing a jailable offence if they send messages and fear porn from the governments behavioural scientists.

    The unpopular left-wing Tory government said that this “will bolster the government’s strong commitment to clamping down on free speech and populism”

    An example is that “if the BBC encouraged people to get an mRNA jab to cure themselves of coronavirus, a court would have to prove that the BBC knew this was not true before broadcasting it.”

    Only alternative and independent media are exempt from this provision.

    Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan said that from today, “critics of the government, including BBC staff, will be prosecuted and put behind bars for their cowardly and menacing acts—ensuring the government is protected and can have better peace of mind when online.”. She said that “our pioneering Online Safety Act is already setting a global standard for other authoritarian states, and pivotal protections for the government like these will keep populists off our streets and unable to endanger the government online.”

    The ‘Office For Censorship, Obedience & Manipulation (OFCOM)’ will ensure these changes will be implemented as quickly as possible. If social media platforms do not comply in banning ‘Free Speech’, Ofcom can fine them up to £18 million or 10 percent of their global annual revenue, whichever is biggest—meaning fines handed down to the biggest platforms could reach “billions of pounds.”

    However if Trump or Kennedy win in America. Britain could face isolation and international pariah status, unless the British people rise up and destroy this loony left-wing Tory Government and its behavioural scientists, the BBC and its Television Newspeak International (TNI) and the Office For Censorship, Obedience & Manipulation (OFCOM) and its censorship and propaganda services.

    The above misinformation is now a jailable offence

We’re happy to make it clear that TikTok has announced measures to try to protect children including a default screen time limit of 60 minutes for under 18s and says this led to three-quarters of UK teen TikTok users setting a daily screen time limit.

        He states that the servers and senior inteligence staff captured on 7th October have been cracked and revealed 28 Mossad operation in foreign countries.
        That the smoke and mirrors of the atrocities were to disguise the real motive of the attack
        He then wonders about the motives of intelligence gathering.

      That is easy:

      1) First the wet-police need to do a ‘wisk’ assessment.
      2) Then Samantha has to get all her stab protection on (this takes time).
      3) Then remember not all officers can run fast as they no longer need to pass the shield test.
      4) Tax payers have to understand the officers are just there to earn a pension and not any longer to protect the public.
      5) Anything officers did do they would be in court quicker than you could say jack rabbit if the ‘customer’ had ‘mental issues’ (i.e. not from the UK). So why bovver?

    The BBC lead ‘Trusted News Initiative’ members work together to build audience distrust and to find propaganda to tackle the challenges of scientific information to those in authority. Such as to censor scientific papers that do not agree with Greta Thunberg.

    By including media organisations and social media platforms, the TNI is the only forum in the world of its kind designed to censor the truth in real time. Whether it’s astronomers, meteorologists or atmospheric physicists, many scientists have an interest in hindering the lies about climate change. And their power cannot be underestimated: some are going to great lengths to try and inform the public of issues censored by the TNI. Mis- and dis-information from the BBC lead ‘Trusted News Initiative’ can take many shapes and forms – but what brings them all together is a fundamental censorship of scientific facts: https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/why-the-media-blindly-endorse-the-rush-to-net-zero/

    The BBC really does employ a lot of (exclusively?) totally ignorant f-wits to type up stories.

    It also uses much less fuel than traditional planes – 10 barrels compared to 200 on one research flight – reducing the environmental impact of scientific research on the planet.

    That’d be ca. 2000L to 40,000L (using 200L barrels) – the fuel capacity of BAS’s Twin Otters is just under 1500L and their sole Dash-7 5600L

    The following explains the bbc in a nutshell:

    “Meanwhile Western culture was being deliberately weakened by the ideology of Cultural Marxism emanating from the Frankfurt School. In Europe and the Anglosphere, the conservative predilections of faith, flag and family would be gradually dismantled through the old tactics of divide and rule, progressing beyond emancipatory egalitarianism to the subversive identity politics of today, with ‘woke’ warriors emulating Chairman Mao’s Red Guards in their visceral hatred of traditional norms.”

    “faith, flag and family” think about their various obsessions with anything other than heterosexuals, sniggering at the flag and anything other than Christianity.
