      Brissles, my dear old thing, well it is the cricket season in India. I moved aside so that you or Debs could take top spot. Now taffman has got it. Well done taffman! I guess it eases the pain of the rugby union match at Twickenham.

    Meanwhile in Rochdale……
    ‘ Labour candidate Azhar Ali apologises for Israel comments…..
    Labour’s candidate in the Rochdale by-election has apologised for remarks he made about Israel in a community meeting.
    In a secret recording obtained by the Mail on Sunday, Azhar Ali reportedly said Israel had “allowed” the deadly attack by Hamas gunmen on 7 October.’

    In other words, just another Labour Muslim person sucking up to his electorate.

    PS elsewhere in this fine centre of multiculturalism, 4 teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of raping a young female.

    Episodes 1 and 6 are missing….not sure what’s on 1 but 6 is a pro-Arab programme…or is it pro-Israeli in the end? …..must keep the Arabs happy…the power of Islam….oh, and oil….plus those damned Israelis use more bombs than the PLO…so must be bad ‘uns…and they started it all. Of course the programme did and does, even now, reflect the reality of foreign office ideology…pro-Arab. I think though it may be the pro-Israeli bit that gets it shelved for now. I’d be fascinated to see the discussion that led to it being canned.

    6 is on Dailymotion….

    Oh yeah….episode 1…..why’s this missing from iPlayer? Russia.

    Bizarre that they remove these programmes…they’re not current affairs programmes…they’re comedy. Who are they going to offend?

      As soon as we realised how biased the BBC was many years ago we guessed that they would censor/ban many of their excellent old comedy’s so went on a DVD buying spree. It ain’t half hot mum, yes Minister and yes prime minister to name but two. Friends of ours said why DVDs when you can stream them, I really think the penny dropped when you realise that they can edit and censor so they also went on a buying spree.

    Quite puzzled that the BBC website doesn’t seem to be covering the Rochdale story. I don’t make a habit of questioning the BBC’s news judgment, which is generally good. But this seems to me obviously of strategic significance. And the candidates apology verifies the story.

        G
        I think it’s one of the reasons the State allows the BBC its ’agenda ‘ ( apart from the civil service agreeing with it ) that the state knows the bbc will censor / omit stories like farmer protests …. They know a good few will source their information from more reliable sources than the BBC ( easy )but there will be plenty of less thoughtful people who don’t know what they don’t know …

        As noted by all here, the most pernicious example of the BBC’s partial agenda is what they don’t cover, who they don’t invite.

      Even if they are on the right the people who don’t put dates on things are MIS-LEADERS

      The claim is not new.. it comes from a Breitbart article from July 2023
      https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2023/07/28/wsj-facebook-demoted-video-of-tucker-carlson-by-50-at-the-demand-of-biden-white-house/

      Yet strangely a false ? community note pops up
      “This post says it is based on reporting by the Wall Street Journal but no link is given. A search of recent articles on wsj.com provides no plausible published stories that support the claims.
      Readers should consider this claim as UNSOURCED until a citation is provided.”

      That is a strawman the article is NOT recent it’s from July 2023
      https://archive.is/P5t3c
      However that WSJ article doesn’t mention Tucker
      So the Breitbart had confused it with a New York Post article
      which does actually contain the words

      In one stunning case, the White House also reportedly requested to know why Facebook did not delete footage from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program, according to the emails. Facebook responded by saying it was “ready to tell the White House that it had demoted a video posted by Tucker Carlson by 50% in response to the White House’s demands, even though the post didn’t violate any policies.”

    Nato chief says Donald Trump comments ‘undermine all of our security’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-68269354

    Here we go : expect a lot more of this from the BBC. And expect it to get more and more desperate as things for Sleepy Joe fall apart.

    It’s clear Trump didn’t literally mean he wants Russia to attack any NATO state who doesn’t pay. He was making a point that all countries must pay the agreed amount for the protection it gives.

    Russia knows that an attack on any member is an attack against them all. And so does everybody else trying to paint Trump as the ‘warmonger’ here.

    And just look at what senile Joe had to say:
    President Joe Biden called Mr Trump’s comments “appalling and dangerous”, suggesting his predecessor intended to give Russian President Vladimir Putin “a green light for more war and violence”.

    The statement is the exact opposite of that : it was intended to get MORE funding for NATO.

    I’ve noticed that the general MSM plan now is to portray Trump as ‘unhinged’. I’ve seen it in several articles now and it’s that weird thing where they all start singing from the same hymn sheet as if they all got together to plan it. I’ve also noticed how they are once again starting to say he will cause WW3.

    It’s about the most extreme Leftist case of ‘projection’ I’ve ever seen considering Biden doesn’t know where he is half the time and since he got in, everyone is fighting because they know how weak he is.

    And of course the BBC are still doing their best to promote Nikki Hayley who they want to replace Trump. What is now clear is that she is hanging in there like a tagnut hoping something bad happens to Trump and she gets in by default.

        Stew, I don’t think so, it was a reply to a question recently put to DJT by a media person. For sure, when Trump was President he rattled the NATO collecting tin and said the European countries were not ‘pulling their weight’ including the UK. We increased our contribution up to the 2% of GDP that the Treaty requires but some other European countries are still in default.

              Stew, another two reasons why I think you are wrong and I am correct to say that former President Trump made those remarks on Saturday is that it is the Republican Primary season and they have moved to South Carolina for the third rally in the season: Iowa, New Hampshire and now, South Carolina. Secondly, when he was President from 2016 – 2020, Donald Trump was consistent in saying NATO members must make their full susbscription. Would you rather have an consistent President in the US or one who is inconsistent like Keir Starmer who blows in the prevailing wind like a weather vane? I know which I would choose.

              Care to apologise?

                    Then you are mistakenly saying I claim the speech was not on Saturday.

      JohnC, it was the same after the 2016 Presidential Election in the US; the Supreme Leader in N.Korea had been rattling his sabres and claiming he could reach the US with his missiles and there were rumours of WW3 then if Kim Jong-Un a.k.a. FatBoy tried to re-unify Korea. What did Trump do in response?

      He visited North Korea and charmed the socks off the Supreme Leader and brokered a meeting with Presidents of NK and SK. All that has been forgotten by the Lefty BBC and the Democrats in the US.

      ‘Police have issued an appeal for anyone who was in the area or may have seen something to get in touch.’

      Perhaps a description of the four boys they want to know if people saw would have helped here.

      What are the odds it is Muslim boys raping a white girl because they have been taught that white girls who show skin are trash and only fit for the pleasure of good Muslims ?. Because THAT is what they think:

      ‘She narrated, “When I was being beaten, I was called a white slag, white whore and white cunt (sic).” Dr. Hill pointed out that her white skin was always on the mind of her Muslim perpetrator. She revealed that grooming gangs viewed white girls as ‘easy meat’ because they sing, dance, drink alcohol – things considered ‘immoral’ and ‘worthy of punishment (rape and beating in this case).’’
      https://www.opindia.com/2020/07/muslim-grooming-gangs-uk-victim-narrate-details-rape/

      It’s worse than rape : it’s racist rape.

      You will never see anything which goes anywhere near that on the BBC. They just ignore anything which doesn’t fit their own racist narrative.

    Allies edition

    One of those happenstance frontpage juxtapositions of two side by side clashing headlines that serve to put the lie to mainstream media messaging arrive to kick us off this morning.

    Probably the most iconic line in cinema of all time – prior to the modern decay of the genre with the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “I’ll be back!”, was in the movie Casablanca where Humphrey Bogart remarks “Of All The Gin Joints In All The Towns In All The World, She Walks Into Mine.”

    And to give context to such remarkable happenstance: In the year ending March 2022, there were 696 homicide offences recorded in England and Wales. (House of Commons Library) – and by the way goodness knows how many murders were pleaded down to manslaughter: Nottingham attacks: Witness recalls horror of student killings… The attacker is being detained at a high-security hospital after admitting manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. (BBC)

    This morning the liberal Tory wishy-washy Rishi lackey loyalist mouthpiece Daily Express (some time allied with and indeed:‘United with the people of Ukraine’ – nowadays not so much) decides to commemorate: ‘Amazing’ Brianna remembered a year on from brutal murder

    [Sympathy and condolence to family and friends of course]

    Mirroring the major frontpage feature photograph report in the left-leaning Guardian: Family, friends and allies… many wearing pink… first anniversary of her murder…

    Allies…?

    Back to the Number 10 Downing Street mouthpiece Daily Express for that awkward juxtaposition where a Tory boy minister is wheeled out to spout some vaguely conservative-sounding platitude: Shapps: Woke culture is poisoning common sense

    Let’s recall how – 13 years on as we tend to say – this empty statement is sitting apparently comfortably beside: ‘Amazing’ Brianna remembered a year on from brutal murder

    And one is left to recall Humphrey Bogart’s amazement and wonder at: “Of All The Gin Joints In All The Towns In All The World, She Walks Into Mine.”

    Of all the murders, all the rapes, all the robberies, in all the towns, in all of Britain… ?

    Talking of allies…

    Nato chief says Donald Trump comments ‘undermine all of our security’ (BBC)

    Weather permitting

    New Nato hitch… Second carrier yet to join drill… The Royal Navy said HMS Prince of Wales was still expected to sail soon, subject to suitable tide and weather conditions (FT)

    Let’s hope Putin’s Ruskies don’t attack us at a time when there’s… the wrong kind of… surf… in the Channel?

    Seems there’s no such sailing concerns for these brave fighting age chaps: Channel Migrants: More than 1,300 people cross in January (BBC)

    Our deep state ruling elites never saw a single foreigner they didn’t want to invite over to live here: Overseas students in push to clear names over English tests ‘cheating’… Thousands were forced to leave UK in apparent miscarriage of justice… 10 years on… (Guardian)

    Meanwhile over there at the chronically coronaphobic left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper: Fears for poorest pupils as Covid catch-up tutoring faces axe – were there similar fears from the education establishment when schools were closed in Lockdown – not so much

    Let’s do a quick calm down dear and get out of here

    Well, errr, no, I used to supply them and they were totally hypocritical. Of course they didn’t test materials on animals. They just bought materials where someone else had already done the testing. And they preferred cheap industrial grades of materials to higher quallity grades made to purer standards.

    Yet the BBC obviously think they were wonderful. If only they’d had been nationalised.

    Boots. Believe it or not, and in my first hand opinion their standards were higher and arguably more ethical. An opinion recently validated unprovoked by a contact still in the industry.

I reluctantly moved to Lush (pro Palestinian) but a couple of years ago they changed the formula to one that left my hair the colour it already was, and tripled the price. But now with the internet I just buy pure henna on-line. Basing life on ‘go woke, go broke’, I assume the sickly sweet smell slipping out of Lush, should not be polluting our high streets for much longer.

      “Is there someting wrong with the Labour party in Rochdale?”

      @JustinOnWeb asks Shadow Minister Nick Thomas-Symonds, who tells #R4Today ‘it’s unfair to draw that conclusion’, after by-election candidate Azhar Ali apologises for ‘deeply offensive’ comments about October 7th.

      Just in Rochdale?

      Champion and squad hoping no one notices things are going very badly for the narrative, and an fellow Islamist apologist citing a JezBo ‘report’ guessing the mood of a TNI optics obsessed dementia President’s team will be enough to swerve a war in part initiated by the taking of hostages by her brown eyed boys, still refusing to release those not sacrificed to the propaganda gods.

      Make no mistake, the propagandist media which will be in every studio she can, and will be welcomed.

    And then more

    Our Justin interviews someone called ‘shinecock’ ( true ) who was an advisor to billy Clinton – it was about what to do about the ga ga Biden . The msm seems to have collectively decided ‘there is a problem ‘ – but – of course having a man suffering from dementia in the Oval Office is far better than President `trump – who is a demon and no one will vote for .

    The big problem for me is that you see the bbc lies – to us and itself – but then calls itself ‘true’ which is a lie in its self …

      Would they have been released had their country persisted?

      Thanks for posting. That is the most appalling power grab far beyond the Gillick ruling from our corrupt and irresponsible judges.

      This is all about the nationalisation of our children.

      Who knows what the wicked state would do? Probably convince the children to take a poison and tell them it is ‘safe and effective’.

    Blue labour lose deposit in at least one
    Reform ( if running ) come second

    Review on Thursday when Starmer struts around the place trying to do the ‘PM in waiting “ gig and all reds screeching for General Election ….

    Meanwhile some sacrificial blue labour minister will be sent out ( gove ?) to say “ it was a bad night for the conservatives – we will listen to the voters -but the economy is turning around ( all lies of course )….

    A poll today predicts half the rural blue labour seats will be red next time with notable cabinet ministers gone – including Hunt …
    Too late for the blue Labour to do anything about the mess they’ve made by not being conservative …

      I don’t think this is a church, I think it’s Rochdale Town Hall, and Galloway is a convert anyway.

      I can’t see how people can complain about this to be be honest. When I pointed out that Netanyahu’s murderous campaign in Gaza would lead to this the majority of voices said it was worth it.

      So suck it up you have what you said was worth it !

          That is not what was said all those weeks ago, what was said was in accordance with the majority of people in Israel and other voices in the world that the situation in Gaza could and should have been handled differently.

          Netanyahu has seized power in what amounts to a coup d’etat. If he hadn’t done so both he and his wife would be on trial for corruption which they are pretty much certain to be found guilty of.

          He has a 3% approval rating in Israel and it is beyond me why anyone on these forums would support a man like that. If this was a Muslim leader the condemnation would be absolute, the fact he is Jewish should not make any difference.

    The writing is on the wall for Biden, now that everyone can see he’s senile – everyone except the BBC, that is.

    We, here, have known it for years, but now even the Democrats and their tame mouthpieces in the msm are waking up to the fact.

    The question is, who will they replace him with? The useless Newsom who has all but destroyed California, the repulsive (and useless) Kamala, or the awful Michelle who will thereby give Obama his fourth term if one includes the current one.

    What a shower. The tragedy of course is that the American electorate might buy it, with the help of the biased media such as the BBC who will be delighted to swing behind any of those candidates, while ceaselessly denigrating Trump.
