Start the week 5th February 2024

In the last week the BBC has been forced to release 3000 emails concerning the fraud on Princess Diana , the publications of anti semitic hate social media by a BBC manager and yesterday the story of BBC manager giving ‘expert evidence ‘ to support criminal Somalians trying to get ‘asylum ‘… take your pick – and that’s just the vile BBC stuff we know about .
And you still pay for the BBC ?

    From the BBC in 2014:

    ‘It has been a taboo subject in France for 70 years but in his D-Day commemoration speech on 6 June, President Francois Hollande will pay tribute to the terrible civilian casualties suffered by the French due to Allied bombing up to and during the liberation of France.

    Historians believe Allied bombardments killed almost as many French people as German bombs killed Britons during the Blitz.

    According to research carried out by Andrew Knapp, history professor at the UK’s University of Reading, British, American and Canadian air raids resulted in 57,000 French civilian losses in World War Two.

    At the end of the War, St Nazaire was recorded as “100% destroyed” but talking about the destruction in this and 1,500 other towns was taboo.

    “That silence is amazing and amazed me,” says Monfajon. “France was the third country most bombed by the Allies after Germany and Japan and it is hardly mentioned in our history books.”

    This was largely because of the way the collaborationist Vichy regime used these casualties in their propaganda in order to turn public opinion against the Allies.

    Exactly…same with Hamas and its claimed casualty figures….the BBC is an Hamas propaganda mouthpiece.

      I have noticed how people, especially those working in the NHS, tell me proudly how many covid vaccinations they have had. I smile sweetly but murmur some nothingness. I have had some, but how many is my business. But the doctors usually follow up with something like, ‘but you’re fully vaccinated, right?’ Again I just smile sweetly and say nothing. The world changed with the omicron variant but I think someone is putting something into the drinking water in our hospitals or brainwashing them all.

        There is nothing in the water but there is a conspiracy to defraud the tax payer by the vast majority of the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry.
        Those giving the injections get between £10 and 20 per injection and of course the mark up on the ‘vaccines’ is large. The whole thing has become a billions per year rip off of the tax payer.

        (The Kent Weather Book – Bob Ogley, Ian Currie, Mark Davison)

        I heartily recommend this book, which describes the weather experienced in Kent, since the 17th Century!

        The illustrations are incredibly well chosen, and the whole book contains well-written facts about the horrendous storms, hurricanes, floods etc., experienced by the county over all these years.

        And it is factual, with the information taken from recorded incidents, and has none of the screaming, dribbling headlines that we see on the BBC, and other dead tree rags today!

        The current weather patterns from way back, appear to have been far worse than what we are experiencing today, it’s just that the constant boring lies about ‘climate change’ which are spouted with incessant monotony by Beeboids and others who should know better, are really turning people off the MSM in droves!

        We gave up Countryfile long before we stopped watching the Beebicle crap, as it had got down to a really crass ‘statement’ of utter rubbish, and I didn’t think it could get much worse, but apparently it has!

          Thanks you sort of make my view on the ‘man made ‘climate change hysteria for me – I believe the science behind weather ‘patterns ‘ is just not mature enough to base serious economic / personal government on them .

          Let’s face it – global accurate records of the weather has been reliable since …what ? Satellites in the 1980s?
          And the science behind CO2? Even more recent ….
          So when books from a hundred years ago describe ‘extreme ‘ weather they have to ignored .
          The weather / climate is always changing … and then we have another ice age coming .. in a few hundred years – are they going to stop that ? ( if we survive another week that is )

          Gloom on a gloomy Monday but I think of the consequences of this hysteria whenever I see my ‘smart meter ‘…

    Clapham attack: ‘I thought three-year-old victim was going to die in my arms’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-68198779

    I see the BBC have entered the full-on empathy ‘victims’ stage of this story already.

    “But before I did, she just went limp. I thought the youngest of the two girls was about to die in my arms. Luckily the three-year-old woke up and started to call for her mum.”

    Once again I call a big fat BBC lie. Nobody talks like that : it’s been constructed by ‘Greg’ so it includes all the relevant information in the right way.

    I’ve noticed the BBC are doing this more and more. They will argue it’s OK because ‘it captures the sentiment’. But when they do it to promote their agenda stories – like the excellent English from the residents of Gaza – it’s cynical, deliberate lies.

    Oh – and there is still a Nationwide manhunt going on for a chemical-throwing, convicted sex offender asylum seeker from Afghanistan. But the BBC don’t seem too interested in that.

    I discovered that we refused to grant this man ‘Abdul Shokoor Ezedi’ asylum at first – but when he said he had changed to be a Christian and the Muslims would kill him if we sent him back, we let him stay.

    You just couldn’t make it up. That worked out well didn’t it. How many others like him ?.

    What I wonder is whether Greg chose the priorities in this report himself or he was directed to concentrate less on the attacker by some BBC political commissar.

    Here’s Greg. I notice how all these ‘reporters’ are very rarely white English males these days.

      John. The con goes on, aided and abetted by naive clergyman, bent lawyers and pinko liberals.

      Forty’ refugees on the Bibby Stockholm Barge are attending local church services amid fears that Christianity conversion may be new ‘loophole’ to remain in country after Clapham chemical attack suspect’s asylum claim was supported by church.

      Forty refugees on the Bibby Stockholm have reportedly started attending local churches amid fears that Christianity conversion may be a new ‘loophole’ to remain in the country.
      Worshippers in Portland, Dorset — where the barge is moored — claim that a number of migrants are converting to Christianity through UK courses such as Christian Alpha, while others have converted in their home country.
      An estimated one in seven of the 300 migrants currently housed on the lighter are said to be attending churches under supervision of faith leaders.

      It comes as Clapham chemical attack suspect, Abdul Ezedi, was able to gain asylum in the UK after claiming he had converted to Christianity, despite being convicted of a sexual offence three years prior.

      The Church of England has since come under fire for allegedly ‘facilitating industrial-scale bogus asylum claims’, with former Home Secretaries Suella Braverman and Dame Priti Patel accusing church leaders of ‘political activism’.

      But the Church of England said it is currently not aware of any links to its churches. A Church spokesperson also added that it is ‘the role of the Home Office, and not the church, to vet asylum seekers and judge the merits of their individual cases’.

      The current Home Secretary, James Cleverly, is expected to receive an initial report detailing the full facts of the case on Monday.

      He will consider whether laws need to be changed to better scrutinize conversion claims, and he will examine whether to enable the automatic deportation of convicted foreign criminals such as Ezedi.

      Presumably for the same reason they don’t report so many things which Muslims (and Black people) do. Because it doesn’t help the agenda. And that’s all they care about.

      I still have trouble working out why the Left support these people despite everything they do. The only answer I end up with is simply to use them as ‘victims’ against the Right when they get angry about it.

The publication was started to help the homeless, but the vast majority of sellers are now Romani gypsies. Copies are purchased in bulk by gangmasters and distributed to the sellers. The sellers are registered as self-employed, meaning they are eligible to claim benefits.

        The United Kingdom parliamentary expenses scandal was a major political scandal that emerged in 2009, concerning expenses claims made by members of the British Parliament in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords over the previous years.[1] The disclosure of widespread misuse of allowances and expenses permitted to members of Parliament (MPs) aroused widespread anger among the UK public and resulted in a large number of resignations, sackings, de-selections and retirement announcements together with public apologies and the repayment of expenses. Several members or former members of both the House of Commons, and members of the House of Lords, were prosecuted and sentenced to terms of imprisonment.

        (South Gloucs or Avon to some) where loyal Party member Rupert Lowe is standing for a seat that will disappear come next election.
        Full marks to him.

        Wait there’s more…! Another by-election will be held in the constituency of Rochdale on 29th February. Simon Danzuk former Labour MP is standing for Reform. Another chance for a good result.
        Reform is the best deal in town at the moment by far and I hope a lot of effort is Going into Ben Habibs campaign.

        What is Reform’s party president doing? Why, of course, flirting with the Tories and well known flibbertigibbet Liz Truss.

        When it is by-election time in the first past the post voting system it is a time that smaller parties can shine. The last thing they need is disunity at that moment.

    Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be and weather conditions as advertised may be different where you are edition

    The formerly serious Times newspaper attempts to emulate the FT’s Briefing frontpage column, where it surveys the day’s subsidiary stories, with its own coverpage footer entitled: In the news

    But our one time paper of record fails to pull off the mimicry to the level of the market watching pink paper’s unique crossword puzzle-like style of phrasing – where we try to wrap our brains around headlines such as: Emirates chides Boeing – your guess is as good as mine, dear reader

    In fact this morning the Times stoops almost to the sad dephs of that old journalistic saw: Man bites dog

    Dogs kill woman (Times)

    This is of course pure tabloid territory – red meat for our red tops and an eye catcher for the BBC news online press line up. And combined with a nod to the weather alarmists among us forms a fine day’s double whammy: Newspaper headlines: ‘Horrifying’ dog attack and ‘bonkers’ week of weather (BBC)

    ‘Banned dogs’ kill amazing grandmother – regrets the Rishi lackey loyalist Daily Express – do they mean to tell us that the latest Dangerous Dogs Act has failed and Rishi (seat-warmer for Starmer) will need to look elsewhere for his legacy?

    Having the vapours

    Well, there is Mr Sunak’s other prize slice of legislation that has saved us from the curse of the vapes. Parliament spending precious time and effort banning those things will mean we never hear from them again. They won’t be driven underground or suddenly become the cool thing to do?

    Exclusive ‘balloon’ addict… Prem ace in rehab for party gas… Police found dozens of nitrous oxide cannisters… Usage is said to be rife among players despite it being banned (The Sun) – keen-eyed pedestrians will have clocked dozens of discarded little silver bottles in the gutters of Britain and keen-eyed readers will have spotted a common or garden journalistic ‘despite’ in the headline thereabouts.

    Let’s also throw a bone to our broadsheets: Grandmother killed by XL bullies despite ban (Telegraph) – again with the despite.

    It feels as though this morning our press have wrapped all their ‘despites’ in gold foil and handed them around on a serving tray like the Ferrero Rocher – you’re spoiling us, mainstream media.

    But we digress

    They told us something must be done… and it was… and we still have the problem…

    Yet another victim… Gran, 68, mauled by two crazed ‘XL Bullys’… Horrifying… Time for action on danger dogs – the Mirror even has the mugshot: …right, one of the dogs thought to be involved

    Our sympathy extends to the family involved, of course.

    They do say the time frame for nostalgia to kick in has contracted considerably of late. One might certainly be nostalgic for the Blairite 1990s nowadays. That’s almost de rigueur in our media. Or perhaps we ought to look back a little earlier and more sceptically: The worst year in pop… Remember Showaddywaddy, Mud and the Wombles (Telegraph)

    Over there at the perpetually coronaphobic left-leaning youth-orientated ‘i’ newspaper we’re told of: Lockdown nostalgia… Why a third of young adults were ‘happier’ during pandemic

    That’ll be because they were given the green light to bunk off school. And that was just the teachers.

    There’s still a lot of it about: Outrage as civil servants take 1.8m days off long-term sick (Express)

    Mr AsI’s contention is that Lockdown demoralised the workforce.

    This third of our young adults said to have been happier in Lockdown… I’m guessing there’s very little over-lap with: Quarter of Brits want Trump back in the White House (‘i’)

    While we’re on the ‘i’ frontpage we may as well take advantage of a handy calm down dear

    I tried being an optimist but ran out of unicorn dust… by Lucy Mangan (‘i’)

    Are we witnessing a modern Road FROM Damascus Epiphany?

    Forty barge migrants convert to Christianity (Telegraph)

    The period of barbarian conversion spans the time from the early fourth century, with the Edict of Milan, when Christianity was basically tolerated in the Empire, and the first signs appeared of the barbarian incursions into the Roman empire (Thank you Mary Foundation at CatholiCity.com)

    I suppose we have to take a look at the weather report that so excited the gynaeceum that is the BBC staff press pickers

    Bonkers Britain… Three seasons in one week! 15c spring heat will turn to autumnal floods, then sub-zero winter whiteouts (Daily Star) – but don’t expect any refund on your 90p cover price if all that weather doesn’t happen where you are.

      Basically the site will deny you access if you’re outside Germany to prevent idiots overwhelming it.
      Only way around it is to spoof your location to appearing to be in Germany.
      To do that, you need a VPN, and choose a Germany server.

      Just remember to switch vpn off when you’ve finished as it can be slower internet.

      Eg on android
      Free VPN Proxy by Planet VPN

      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.freevpnplanet&hl=en&gl=US

      Then you’ll have to translate from German, eg Brave browser can do that.

      Not sure there’s anything that’s revolutionary to anyone here, as we’re all enlightened anyway.

      Eg

      Immigration | Asylum
      “No further immigration to the social systems
      End tug services
      Enable asylum seekers to be identified without any doubt
      No family reunification in our social systems
      The cost of unaccompanied underage foreigners is exploding
      No to dual citizenship
      Islam is not part of Germany
      An Islam that does not respect or even fight our legal system and claims to rule as a single religion is not compatible with the liberal-democratic basic order of Germany. Many Muslims live lawfully and are valued members of our society. However, the AfD wants to prevent isolated Islamic parallel societies from spreading further, in which Muslim “peace judges” TAG1 “apply Sharia law and undermine the state monopoly of law enforcement and jurisprudence.

      The AfD fully recognizes freedom of belief, conscience and confession. However, it demands that the practice of religion be restricted by law.

      The AfD opposes defamation of rational criticism of religion as „ Islamophobia “ or „ racism “. We want to prevent Muslims from radicalizing to violent salafism and terror.

      The financing of the construction and operation of mosques by Islamic states or foreign donors or their middlemen is to be prevented.

      Imams must be fully committed to our Basic Law. The sermons in mosques in Germany are to be kept in German. Imams who agitate against the Basic Law are banned from preaching and are deported if the legal requirements are met.

      The Islamic theological chairs at German universities must be abolished and the positions of the non-confession Islamic studies transferred.

      Burka and Niqab build a barrier between the wearer and her environment through the facial covering, making it difficult to live together in society. No headscarf is to be worn in the public service, in educational institutions neither by teachers nor by schoolchildren based on the French model.

      The AfD calls for a general ban on full veiling in public and public service.”

    I see the murder of the trans kid is being moulded to fit the pre-approved template.

    Brianna Ghey’s mum on R5 last night carries no hate… “hate is such a harmful emotion.” A forensic psychologist is on hand to call such a reaction to your kid getting murdered full of courage, compassion and dignity. Just once it would be interesting to hear a responder to some terrible calamity on the BBC step outside the controlled narrative and say I’m full of boiling rage and want to string the killer, and everyone else responsible, up by their balls.

    Then the problems of social media. Does the mum think her daughter would have been safe if only there had been more safeguards in place to flag up what the killers were viewing online? Of course she does, because Kuenssberg just spoon-fed her the question. And now on to the dark web.

    Just like David Amess and Mike Freer, it doesn’t matter the originating cause, all roads lead to the problems of online hate and its state-endorsed remedies.

      Morning TM,

      When the knife -weilding n3gro killed three innocents in Nottingham, one of the three was a chap just coming up to retirement. The media interviewed his brother. He said exactly what any sane person would be thinking, telling the worthies exactly where they could stick their candles and flowers, and that he would plant a haymeker on any idiot singing “look back in anger”. He also said something along the lines of “The killer should be jailed for seven days; you can build a gallows in that sort of time”. I only saw the interview once, and haven’t seen him since. My kind of sentinments though, if he started a political party he’d get my vote.

    • Ian Rushlow says:

      It’s a curious but predictable choice of picture. However, prostate cancer is more prevalent in black men than other demographics – it is believed that this is due to higher levels of testosterone, which may also account for increased levels of aggression and violence in that group (it’s also a reason why testosterone supplements are restricted in some countries). So, it can be argued that getting black people involved is appropriate, as is getting women involved, as they have husbands, fathers, brothers who are susceptible to this disease.

      However, the photograph is clearly inappropriate. A better choice might be a group of people, emphasising the message that prostate cancer affects a wide group of people. If 25 people were in the photograph, 1 of them could be black, reflecting the fact that around 4% of the UK population fall into that category, so it would be realistic.

    Scampton BBC Lincolnshire news had a weird report yesterday and this morning saying protesters had been attacked at Scampton Main Gate
    but was bizarrely lacking in detail
    The newspaper cannot be taken at face value . It says at 2:30am morning 12 far right thugs turned up and started beating people up
    and then shows photos of someone with bloody lip
    and someone else with leg cuts
    .. then it confuses by saying that local protesters had decided to move from their normal site and take over the main gate (Gate 8) camp that National protesters had been at.

    Digging deeper shows a video from Friday from a guy who runs a different camp at Gate 6. He mentioned “I’m staying out of the trouble at Gate 8”
    Then another video from last week appears to show the two groups sitting together at the main gate. But one guy wondering around saying his tools have gone missing , another woman taking down a protest sign and burning it, another woman apologising for losing her temper. That video was secretly filmed by the guy who later got a bloody lip on Sunday.

    So it seems to me it’s not an attack but part of a long running friction between the national and local protesters about flags and stuff going missing etc.
    And when someone says 12 men attacked me, it was likely much less than that

    Much later video from Sunday lunchtime shows the police turning up in about 10 vehicles and commenters say they turned up 10 hours too late.
    It’s strange that no video from the actual Sunday morning scuffle is around
    That suggests both sides think they made mistakes.

    Isn’t he innocent until proven guilty

    Yesterday I posted about armed Police storming a train at Manchester piccadilly station, and reports it was the one eyed so called acid attacker. Around about 18 hours later the medja catches up and reports on the situation, but that the suspect was mis identified.

    https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/clapham-attack-latest-abdul-ezedi-28571808

    The mind boggles as to whether some innocent one eyed Pakistani man was dragged off a train because someone thought he looked like Ezedi !

        Have you ever heard of the Gestapo actually paying out those rewards they promise? SO many stories of them not doing so now that no one should be silly enough to expect them to keep their promises.

    The BBC and much of the msm are baffled that the muslim Afghan illegal immigrant who threw acid at a family can’t be found.
    Indeed, it’s surprising that a man with half his face missing and his photo everywhere could just disappear.
    Unless, of course, a certain ‘community’ is sheltering him.
    If so, they should all be tried for harbouring a criminal, aiding and abetting or whatever.

    They’re also baffled as to his motive. Well, in certain parts of the world and in a certain ‘religion’, acid attacks are common retaliation if a woman disses a man. Perhaps she turned down his amorous advances, in which case she had it coming, as sharia courts might agree – and they’re coming soon.

      2017 .. Everything you know about acid attacks is wrong
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/article/5d38c003-c54a-4513-a369-f9eae0d52f91

      There is a common understanding of acid attacks in the UK that goes something like this: the attacker is male; the victim female. Both are South Asian, and the violence has something to do with the man’s so-called ‘honour’.

      But the most comprehensive set of data yet on acid attacks in London paints a different picture.

      WINNING “The UK has one of the highest recorded rates of violent acid attacks in the world.”

      Comment pieces and news stories speculating that white supremacist acid throwers were targeting Muslims all over the UK began appearing on news sites and blogs.

      Acid throwing dates to Victorian times, he added – and Britain is witnessing a “new phase” of the violent attacks.

      “We’ve had acid throwing in this country for over 200 years, and there’s been a new development of it,” said Dr Harding. “But it’s not new and it’s not imported.”

        Douglas Murray was scheduled to host a fundraiser for Israeli soldiers in London tonight, but the event was cancelled after workers refused to staff it even when they were offered triple pay.

            I think that is a fake comparison
            BBC More Or Less covered it in 2019
            It assumes you just turn up and buy

            But that’s crazy everyone knows you buy in advance and get a good discount.

            “Reality Check verdict: The claim is based on very narrow research.
            The UK has some of the most expensive tickets in Europe if bought on the day of travel but some of the cheapest tickets if bought far enough in advance.”

            In the replies someone pointed out that the App was selling tickets for £27 even on the day
            https://twitter.com/Joe32127981/status/1656941771782344705

            It’s crazy to invest in the UK cos generally people are so thick they believe a wild claim made in a tweet.

    Piers Morgan versus the Prime Minister has aired and it’s an entertaining watch. After admitting that his children don’t think it’s “cool” to have him as their dad, Sunak tried to show how confident he was with his Rwanda plan that he shook on a £1,000 bet with Piers that he’d get flights off the ground by the election. Chump change…

    Whilst he tried to assure the public that his “stop the boats” priority will be achieved, he admitted that his government has failed on the one of the other pledges: cutting NHS waiting lists. Last month, he told Laura Kuenssberg that measures he’s put in place will see a reduction in waiting times by spring. Now it seems he’s accepted defeat…

    . . . . . . . .

    From a Theresa May speech …

    As Martin Wolf, the chief economics commentator of the financial times, says: ‘The desirability of sizeable immigration is a matter more of values than of economics. It is not a choice between wealth and poverty, but of the sort of country one desires to inhabit.’

    ……………………..

    The number of people in Bradford’s Pakistani community who have married a cousin has fallen sharply in the past 10 years, a study suggests. Higher educational attainment, new family dynamics and changes in immigration rules are thought to be possible reasons.

      Strange really – the blue labour lot replaced an elected buffoon with an unelected technocrat – who turns out to be a sort of technocrat buffoon – such as making dumb promises which will be either cheated or failed .

      How can a country be left without a choice of effective government … pee poor really isn’t it ?

    King Charles’ new Equerry is to be a certain Captain Kat Anderson, female and of mixed race. Being part Malaysian, she might be muslim (?).

    Perhaps she was chosen strictly on merit, but given Charles’s previous form, I wonder if we’re seeing DEI infiltrating the Royal Family. If so, Charles would do well to remember that last time they introduced a bit of ‘cool’ diversity in the form of Meghan, it ended in tears.

    I see Millei’s Argentina is experiencing more disastrous economic problems.

    A few weeks ago I said he made a major error in reaching out to Bidens USA who did absolutely nothing to assist him. China pulled away as a result, and Millei had also tried to distance his country from BRICS as well.

    As a result of all this inflation in Argentina has reached 211% and there are huge demonstrations on the streets.
    He doesn’t seem an unintelligent man, but what on Earth was he thinking to trust the US Dollar when it’s clear Biden is doing his best to destroy it !

      His most disastrous error was to go to Davis and tell them the truth, that they , the WEF crowd are the problem and that the people want shut of them.
      Once he said that he had to go but first his policy will be shown to be totally , absolutely , unquestioningly wrong.
      Then a technocrat will be appointed by the WEF who rescues Argentina by a good dose of WEF approved financial orthodoxy.
      A familiar train of events.There is a heavy price to be paid if you go against the WEF.
