    Labour withdraws support for Rochdale candidate over Israel comments

    “He has been approached for comment” – and, what was the outcome, just you approached him for comment? Seems to be a popular line from the bbc, but no information/reply. Guess I wouldn’t want to reply to the bbc either.

    Muslim party to follow…

    Gang who killed man for fake designer watch jailed

    No not what your thinking, it wasn’t Mr Smith, or Mr Jones who murdered him, it was:-

    Jordell Menzies
    Louis Vandrose
    Quincy Ffrench
    Kavindu Hettiarachchi and Antonios Kfoury found guilty of perverting the course of justice

    Funny that. Seems to be a pattern, maybe the likes of the bbc could look into it

      I once bought a fake designer watch, (to use as a gardening/dirty-work timepiece), for a couple of quid in our charity shop – which is a local well-run village charity, not one like the other fat government ones we don’t contribute to.

      Like Monty Python’s ‘spring surprise’…

      (…last few seconds of the sketch)

      I can easily fix a pair of sprung needles, liberally coated with curare, deadly nightshade and arsenic and painted gold, which plunge into the wrist of the thief immediately it recognises a stealer’s smell!

      Could be a money-spinner in Londonistan…

    Being an abstainer from the BBC Today programme – I found a bit on YouTube of tucker Carlson being interviewed after the putin meeting . He claims he has been trying to interview putin for 3 years but the US intelligence ‘community ‘ has frustrated its….
    His views about Biden – post dementia declaration – are pretty bleak as might be expected ….

    It seems that Carlson is doing a tour after the putin interview but I suspect we won’t be seeing him in the UK … I fear we are so repressed now that they’ll just prevent his entry to the country … any views 77 brigade ?

      I still can’t understand why Egypt won’t take the Palestinians (actually I think I do ) – but there seems no discussion of this in the msm. Ok – so it might be a strategic objective to empty Gaza and take it over completely – but there seems no discussion of this …..
      ……….. meanwhile obama Biden seems unable to publicly say or do anything …. But criticism ? Nah …

      “Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, said in an interview with Al Jazeera television last year that his group had received $70 million in military help from Iran. “We have rockets that are locally manufactured but the long-range rockets came from abroad, from Iran, Syria and others through Egypt,” he added.16 Oct 2023″


      For 2023/24, the UK has committed £87 million in aid to the Occupied Palestinian Territories (around US$109 million). This includes £60 million announced in October/November 2023 (US$75 million). A total of £16 million was provided to the UNRWA before funding was suspended in January (see next section).2 Feb 2024

    VOTE FOR ME BECAUSE I’M JUST LESS SHITTY… or vote for the new Party “Non of the above” …

    “Kier Starmer has been running around for the last year trying to tell everybody that the Labour Party has changed. Well look what just happened in Rochdale, a candidate saying the most vile conspiracy theories – antisemitic. So no, the Labour Party hasn’t changed. It’s not changed. It’s a con. And that’s what you have to remember: a vote for anyone who’s not me who’s not your Conservative candidate is a vote to put him, with his values and his party in power.” – Rishi Sunak



    • Guest Who says:

      #politicsoftheleastbad has gone on long enough.

      The time for compromises that are seeing the down spiral accelerate is over.

      The #NOTAasaValidVote petition has secured the necessary backing to be ‘considered’, and is now stalled in limbo in Whitehall.

      Given it merely seeks to provide legitimacy to a sincere choice by those who care enough to vote but cannot find any worthy of it, it is hard to see how it could be refused. Or why.


      • Guest Who says:

        So far Toady has managed this:

        The barrister who led an inquiry into Labour’s culture criticises the party’s handling of its Rochdale by-election candidate’s comments on Israel.
        Martin Forde KC tells #R4Today it has been ‘pretty shambolic’, after Labour last night withdrew its support for Azhar Ali.

        Few comments so far, and mostly from one person.

        Seems Labour is not the only shambles. On Twitter at least.

        Meanwhile that idiot Jess Braincell has been given a new series of tone deaf posts.

    Israel Gaza: Biden says Israel must protect vulnerable in Rafah

    So I read this article looking to find out why the IDF are going to enter Rafah. Because I know for certain they will have reasons.

    Not a single word about that in this whole BBC article. Which makes it totally unbalanced and therefore worthless.

    The ENORMOUS elephant in the room here is that if civilians are killed, it is because Hamas are using them as human shields. It’s absolutely disgraceful that the BBC do not mention that.

    And the other elephant in this room is why Egypt won’t let these ‘civilians’ in and protect their fellow Muslims. The BBC never mention that. We all know why : they don’t want them. Most of thoise civilians are Hamas terrorist supporters.

    And it’s about time the BBC stopped using the UN as their ‘reference’ for right-and-wrong. The UN’s reputation is in tatters. They are about as impartial in this as the BBC.


    • andyjsnape says:

      Hello JohnC

      I agree with your comments

      UN look what happened in the Rwandan genocide 1994. Blue helmets, but not allowed to shoot


    • Eddy Booth says:

      Egypt doesn’t want troublesome trash , but also they can’t break ranks with the arab world, who demand the Palestinians stay right there as eternal victims, breeding up, causing problems and ready to flood into Israel.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Eddy – that was my read on it …. Yet as I wrote in a comment from Monday night – the BBC hardly mentions Egypt even as a possible remedy to Palestine …


    • digg says:

      Excellent summary of the truth JohnC!


    • Fedup2 says:

      If I make a small correction – it is HamasUN ….


    • Zelazek says:

      Spot on, JohnC.

      What I notice about the BBC reporting on wars these days is that it is always pitched at an emotional level with lots of crying babies, grieving relatives, howling, blood-drenched wounded, etc.. While this is certainly the horrifying face of war for many civilians, it is not the only dimension of war.

      The BBC give the impression that civilian deaths are always wrong and unjustifiable. This is a simplistic, unthinking, pacifist attitude to conflict. Civilian deaths cannot be isolated as the only element of war to consider when judging its moral character. We need to look at the larger context of the war. Wars don’t just happen for no reason between two equally bad parties. There is always a bigger picture.

      The BBC have no time for the idea that civilian casualties are a regrettable but inevitable part of a war that is entirely necessary and justifiable from the Israeli perspective. What the BBC can’t get through their thick, antisemitic skulls is that Israel cannot afford to lose even one war against the Arabs, whose ultimate aim is Israel’s annihilation. In every episode of this endless conflict, Israel’s very existence has depended on them defeating the Arabs. The BBC either do not understand this or, more likely, actively wish for Israel to be defeated.

      A ceasefire now merely enables Hamas to regroup and plan another atrocity. That must not happen. Israel has to strike back. Hamas must be destroyed and if some of the Palestinian civilians who voted for that terrorist government become collateral damage, so be it. Israel does more than any other army in the world to limit civilian casualties, but they are never given any credit by the BBC for these humane efforts. Compare that to the rape, torture, murder, and deliberate targeting of Israeli civilians by Hamas on October 7th. The BBC never make such a comparison. If they did, the moral landscape of the Middle East might become clear to them and throw into sharp relief the extreme bias of their reporting.


      • StewGreen says:

        BBCnews is addicted to PRasNews
        so when Hamas send in Pallywood videos of faked hospital screaming, the BBC just put them straight into the newsshows.


  8. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Did you watch Rishi on GB News last night.

    It was awful.
    The audience was silent.

    The questions were so mild, “Why should I vote Conservative” and the like which gave him 5 minutes to reel of what he says are their achievements and say that Labour would be worse.

    He was unchallenged on any of his replies.

    The only decent question which was by a very emotional scotch man was about excess covid vaccination deaths and the other effects of the vaccine but he had no answer (See me after to talk about it)
    The rest was bland and what amounted to a Tory party political broadcast.
    Very weak and no answers. A waste of time.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Presumably CCHQ testing the reception the outgoing green card holder will get when the election gets going …. Shame if GBNews is using the BBC method of busing in approved audiences ….


    • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

      Normally that type of interview/forum would mean erections all round in the BBC newsroom and female toilet, but the extremely brave and slightly intimidating guy getting tore into him about the vaccine injured prevents any discussion.
      As one of my family members now has a severe spinal condition as a result of 2 x Astra Zenecas, I have seen at first hand what an inconvenience these 30k life-changing injured are. I have listened to a useless GP who accepted £20 per jab from the UK government for her practice, try to justify someone who can no longer walk as a bizarre coincidence.
      Like most things, it will all come out eventually, but like Hancock, Mone, et al, they will long gone.

    R5 now airing the racist countryside critique and giving a platform to black trailrunners and muslim hikers organisations. It must be due, it’s been about 20 minutes till they last found that Britain was riddled with racism.

    Ok lets do racism in cities. I find the representation around me is dire. Barely anyone speaks English in the shops including the staff; does that count as a barrier to access? Black trailrunner woman thinks we need to have ‘uncomfortable conversations’. Yes I’m up for that.

        Aaaah, Stew, care to apologise? I was correct and you were wrong about former President Trump’s reply in South Carolina.

          @Up2Snuff : Apologise ? I posted the full video on Sunday
          of the speech from Saturday

          what have you got ?

          When you show no evidence of your claim that he was responding to a reporter, it feels like BULLYING when I get back from work to find you have childishly peppered this forum with “care to apologise” posts

          Furthermore when I check your link to the Express it backs what I said “Trump’s remarks, made at a rally in South Carolina”
          There’s no mention of it being in response to a journalists question .. cos it wasn’t.

          I suggest that you misread my post where explained that Trump given a story from the past

          and thought I was saying that Trump had given the speech years ago.

              • StewGreen says:

                Yes @FedUp2 that is the only logical interpretation..
                At Saturday’s rally Trump was giving a story of what happened some years ago
                He spoke in the past tense, not the present tense.

    Re: Sunak… there is a government vaccine compensation scheme even though the vaccines are safe (but not effective any more).

    BBC’s ‘senior reporter’ for health and misinformation has all but given up reporting on health and seems content retweeting Guardian and Take-A-Break style drivel. I get the feeling senior management have downgraded Verify’s job responsibilities to something less complicated than the health of the nation, which requires scientific knowledge and analytical skill.

    What’s all this synthetic indignation about the Rochdale bi-election Labour candidate uand his anti-Semitic views.

    Only half a brain cell is required to realise that in a vibrant, diverse, constituency like Rochdale, this approach is a sure-fire vote winner.

    Here’s hoping the result will show what utter racists certain members of the population are. Clue. Unlikely to be white and/or Christian. Which of course makes it acceptable.

    World at one – the housing ‘crisis ‘ – what crisis ? There’s no crisis – it’s just that the blue labour government has imported about 8 million foreigners in the last dismal 12 years with no sign of a slowing down .,,,,
    And the consequences is that under 40s are still living with mum – or dad if there is one ….

    I never consented to 8 million foreigners – of any type – colour – whatever …. And when I hear interested groups such as ‘charities ‘ saying it’s ‘okay’ I know it’s a lie ….


    • atlas_shrugged says:


      8 Million!!!! Mein Gott!

      Depending if each illegal goes into 1 household or 0.5 household (on average) this means between 8 – 17 GW of total power consumption during winter periods for heating/cooking/household.

      This 17GW far exceeds our total average wind turbine energy production.

      Maybe I mucked up my maffs but bBC could verify.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Atlas – I got 2 numbers wrong – blue labour have been in for 14 years – and the population has gone up by maybe 10 million in that time ….

      “it’s impossible to build a cohesive society. It’s difficult for schools and hospitals and core infrastructure like housing” – Theresa May – VISIONARY.

      “Consider this, I give this example. If immigration continues at the levels it has average over the last ten years. Britain will be adding 10 million people to it’s population in the next 20 years. That means building a new house roughly every seven minutes. Now, we currently have no leadership from the Liberal Democrats, Conservative or Labour Parties saying they are going to do anything to change that course. @5:56 … if any party wishing to get into power doesn’t address this they are committing political suicide….@10:30″ {youtube – Douglas Murray – oct2015}

      … but wait, someone, who is now in power to act out their words, did mention this problem and almost suggests that ‘too high immigration’ should be reduced …

      “Because when immigration is too high (no figure given), when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society. It’s difficult for schools and hospitals and core infrastructure like housing and transport to cope. And we know that for people in low-paid jobs, wages are forced down even further while some people are forced out of work altogether. … So there is no case, in the national interest, for immigration of the scale we have experienced over the last decade.”

    Rochdale by election – labour activists will be telling labour supporters not to vote labour because the now cancelled candidate wants Jews dead …. I somehow think the donkeys in Rochdale who ‘always vote red ‘ will still tick that box – as well as the tens of thousands of Muslim Hamas supporters busily breeding or raping white girls …


    • Thoughtful says:

      No the Muslim Hamas supporters will not be voting Labour, they have a different candidate..

      You should listen to what he says in this video because he outlines his plans for other constituencies, and how he is approaching the election.

          I hope George wins and that Reform runs him a close second.A win for George might help wake the country and its dozy supine politicians up to the danger of Muslim block votes ushering in an era of ethnic democracy.
          If politicians see their comfortable two or three party stranglehold being broken by Muslims they might just stop importing them .
          Of course a good showing by Reform will be met by the usual smears and ridicule from the MSM but they won’t dare do this against a Muslim lover like George . So even the MSM might be a bit concerned about ethno democracy wrecking the political gravy train.
          One does have to flexible and as Churchill said when Hitler invaded the USSR , he would make a favourable reference to the Devil himself if Hitler invaded hell.

    Mail says one thing…

    ‘Absurdist’ comedian Paul Currie is alleged to have encouraged the 200-strong crowd to chant ‘get the f*** out’ and ‘free Palestine’ at Liahav Eitan at the central London theatre – which used to be a synagogue – on Saturday night.’

    The BBC says another….

    ‘A Jewish attendee told the BBC that Mr Currie displayed a Palestinian flag and yelled “get out” at a man who objected.

    The theatre said it was “sorry and saddened” by the incident and police said enquiries were ongoing.’

    Sounds all very banal and not at all threatening…just shouting ‘get out’. But it was a lot worse than that…the aggressive language and claimed whipping up of the crowd.

    The BBC actually references the Mail piece and yet misses out that claim.

    A small point but all the more disturbing if true that the comic urged the audience to target the two Jews in the audience….why does the BBC not mention that?

    Trying to downplay anti-Semitism again?

    The legend is that there were signs on lodgings saying ‘No Irish, no dogs, no Blacks’…this was racist…not sure about the dogs.

    Or was it? May it not be that the landlords had experienced behaviour they didn’t like from certain groups and thus didn’t want them in their house.

    A Jamaican landlord doesn’t want ‘ghetto black Americans’….and read the comments…from mostly black commenters…

    ‘As a black jamaican woman…I have seen it for myself living in America. Please understand black people from other countries and Africa and black Americans are NOT THE SAME.

    The sad part is we have been so rude, rough, loud and agrressive for so long, that we don’t see a problem with it and think it’s normal, which tells you how deep the denial and cluelessness goes, illustrating that we are socially so far behind that their may be no hope.

    I recently got an AirBnB with my brother in Atlanta for a few days while we visited Six Flags. The owner was a very nice older black lady and her place was clean and well maintained. We did notice however that one of her conditions for renting was no local residents of Atlanta. She said if she found out they had lied about residency she would cancel the reservation without a refund.😮 The reason is something very close to what this Jamaican lady is saying.’


  27. digg says:

    The Tories have announced a huge new housbuilding plan for the UK on brownfield sites to ease the housing crises. Following revisions to move the focus from the South to the North, the latest proposed map seems to indicate that a good 75% of these are to be sited in the North around the usual high Muslim population towns and cities with almost none now in the leafy southern suburbs where the wealthy inhabitants spit their dummy out at the original plans.

    So it would seem these new dwellings are not designed to ease the housing crisis for British people at all, they are pretty much bribes and gifts to the swelling Muslim populations around Manchester, Rochdale, Leeds, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham etc. Boosted by none-stop arrivals of more across the channel.

    In effect they will become ghettos. Presumably that is the elite Plan to keep them as far away from suburbia as possible so their own very English lives are unaffected.

        Britain should have been all over these German companies trying to get them to relocate to the UK but as the Tories are Marxists they didn’t want any private enterprise of any kind and are doing their level best to stamp out any we still have left !

    The only way is Gaza. None of it is abating, if now there are spin-offs, created by an increasingly laughable political cadre. So over to the Rochdale judge…

    Again reviewing my feed I am stuck by how so many innocent children are dying there, and only there, in a war their leadership initiated with this precise intention. The servers in the tunnels remaining must be cooking off enough to alert even the dopiest IR drone. And who better to place in the buildings above?

    That way everyone wins. Well, Hamas and the media. Kids… not so much. As illustrated.

    BBC follows Gaza’s tireless paramedics as they confront death and trauma at every turn

    It is something astounding that despite all the ordnance from Iran (Not Holland. They are ethical arms manufacturers. Apparently) still making its way there and being fired at Israel and troops in Gaza, almost no adults appear involved. Other than as angels of mercy. One might also wonder if the ‘BBC’ referred to is the BBC many imagine, or is more a local with a surprisingly good telco link with JonDon or JezBo. Who then edit. And by golly there are lot of folk there getting the necessary footage. So no need to edit.

    Few people can explain the situation in #Gaza with the sober clarity of @YousefHammash – who, like other Gazans, is living through hell @Channel4News
    “In the northern part of Gaza… it is literally a famine – people are dying from hunger.”
    Filmmaker Yousef Hammash, who is sheltering in Rafah with his family, speaks to @krishgm about what people are making of Israeli calls for people to leave

    But there are a few… very few in media perhaps uneasy or just noting that the ‘profession’ has been totally captured by the Hamas PR guys.

    Being pro-Palestine is like the latest fashion item.’Speaking to @NickFerrariLBC, journalist @nicolelampert wonders why there is ‘no one marching in the streets’ for the 7 million displaced people in Sudan.

    Or a few others elsewhere. Before, now and to come. What could it be that has seen the national politico-media estate in thrall of just one activist community?

    Keir Starmer’s got more in common with Boris Johnson than he might like to think – sending out his cabinet to defend Rochdale’s Azhar Ali until the last possible moment, then leaving them exposed when he caves and ditches him.
    Me on LBC this morning.

    It’s a mystery. But also a calling.

    My job is to give as honest an assessment possible of UK politics, not to cover for Labour’s failings. Keir Starmer has his own PR team, he doesn’t need me to join it!


    So… who does one vote for to minimise scumbuggery? Let’s ask Papa Limp Smurf.

    In Rochdale, vote @LibDems. Whatever you do, don’t vote for @georgegalloway. He backed a dictator in 1990 when we first met. He has been Team Scumbag ever since.

      No one seems to be pressuring Gaza to surrender though. No UN calls. No white-flag waving students. Media not pondering- How many civillian casualties might be spared if Gaza surrenders?

        Back in the bad old days, a rather unpleasant consequence of a siege was, if successful, those inside having made life for those outside rather full of grief, once inside paid the price. The defenders of Masada had a solution.

        Luckily, now, stout defences are accepted. Ish.

        In ‘45 the Jugend were often spared unless actually firing a Panzerfaust from behind Gramps. Rather sporting as if not corralled they might just try to take out another T-34 or Sherman. The Japanese were more varied. The lads fought to the death and/or offed themselves. In Okinawa the civilians erred on the latter. Little Boy and Fat Man saved many lives by taking a lot..

        In both cases history has shown the local population were misguided by those in charge and many innocent lives lost to serve the hubris of old men.

        Currently these are in Qatar, being visited by the Scots FM.

    “Steve Wright: Radio 2 presenter dies aged 69”



    Never heard of him , 40 years a BBC man , guess he, as always, somehow managed to miss Jimmy Saviles abuse.
    No cause of death given , not one grey hair…


  31. Fedup2 says:

    6pm bbc news – now which story do you lead with – is it the death of a dj who was fired from R2 last year because they wanted someone younger ?
    A second labour Candidate to be an MP has been suspended because of Jew hating ?

    I bet you can guess ….


    • Thoughtful says:

      Should have led with the judge who refused to ‘punish’ 3 women who wore pro Hamas placards at an anti Israel protest giving them a suspended sentence instead.

      If this were someone White who had criticised Islam their feet wouldn’t have touched – BAME priveledge again.


      • Kaiser says:

        oh it gets much better than that thoughtful


        • StewGreen says:

          Another tweet still exists
          GBnews deleted that one


    • vlad says:

      Yes, the bias is often in the priority and prominence given to certain stories.
      Let’s face it, there are a thousand ways to be biased while still claiming plausible deniability.


  32. Fedup2 says:

    The approved bbc formula

    “Hamas – which is designated as a terrorist group by the British government ( but not by the bbc which sees them as freedom fighters – kill Israel “)…..

    … the the usual Islamic Hamas propaganda piece – this one about the Hamas approved Gaza ambulance service …. Usual blubbing – kiddies crying – nasty Israel -…. Keep going IDF …


  33. digg says:

    BBC News running a long segment about an aid workers experiences in Gaza… lots of footage of crushed buildings and people running around with body bags and aid workers weeping. In fact exactly the same flavour of report they run regularly most evenings from the Gaza/Hamas perspective.

    It’s amazing that the BBC can obtain and run so much of this one-sided footage when I don’t recall seeing any BBC footage or in fact interest of grieving families, despoiled and raped bodies of women and children in Israel etc, after the Hamas instigated massacres.

    Maybe they just don’t have enough reporters to go round?

    The Telegraph reports Islamic activists have created a website called Muslim Vote , which, in its own words, tells Muslims “ who to vote for”.
    It breaks down every constituency of more than 10% Muslims on the electorate and explains the current MP’s position on Gaza and names “the community-endorsed candidate”.
    I presume Azhar Ali would get their endorsement. This is only the beginning.

    Back in 2018 Rog, Gail and the rest of XR were explaining to acolytes how easy it is for small minority to take over using Alinsky methods and a credulous or complicit media.

    Seems others took note.

      Enter the MP for BellaRoos.

      We’ve all seen the mutilated shredded body of a child dangling, dripping in blood, in Gaza
      Political leaders say Israel has the right to defend itself. They refuse to call for an immediate ceasefire or stop arms to Israel. They’ve done nothing to stop Israel killing Palestinians

      I have. Didn’t want to, but it was served up constantly via the tunnel servers.

      It may be real. What I saw was not dripping blood, but was awful, more so if a child. Last time I was so exposed was in the War Museum in Hanoi. A VC aloft post wrong end of a rifle grenade.

      What does the cretinous Clod think happens in war if the losing ‘leadership’ safely ensconced in a bunker or nearby country is telling faith-credulous idiots to fight to the last toddler?

      Granted, a naive view seemingly held by most msm ‘reporters’.

        Webbe gets a lot of stick in the polite replies
        Yet she is choosing to hide some of them
        That is against the spirit of open debate that is Twitter.


    • StewGreen says:

      So that website is a handy tool to see if there are 10% Muslim voters in an area.


    • pugnazious says:

      Yep, there’s a reason he thought he would be well received if he said this….obviously thought it was pretty much the group think in the ‘community’….but as Reform say…it’s about Rochdale not Gaza. But it’s ample demonstration of where loyalties lie when groups are asked to take sides…..but the Army still wants to recruit them to fulfil its quota.

    As I’m sitting here, on my Tod, while Senora O’Blene is not feeling too good at all, (she used to be a teacher when we met), a maudlin emotional melancholy slips in, and this clip seems to appear to have been so prophetic, I wonder whether the present-day teachers actually realise what they have been subjected to after the relentless left-wing pressure they’ve been subjected to over the years since Blair started to sabotage the British way of life…

    I couldn’t care less what Beeboids rattle on about, they’re ignorable, but kids still have to go to school don’t they…


    • Deborah says:

      Sorry to hear that the Senora isn’t well, it is horrible sitting on one’s own whilst the significant other is poorly. Look after yourself, Scrobs.


  37. Fedup2 says:

    Funny isn’t it ? All red labour had to do was keep quiet – not make any promises – not have any policies – and they’d be a shoo in the a landslide –
    But now – popcorn time – Hamas supporters becoming MPs ….. got all the makings of an even worse term of ‘government ‘ the last 14 dreadful years … where the only thing achieved was a weak brexit …. And the erosion of Britain …


  38. Deborah says:

    Just heard that Steve Wright has died. Very recent photo on the Daily Mail website and he looked awful and unrecognisable. I used to enjoy his Radio 2 shows until it became obvious that there was pressure on him to play more ‘modern’ music.


    • Scroblene says:

      He was up there with Kenny Everett as one of the best presenters the BBC ever had!

      As usual, when Beeboids have a success story, they ruin it with their relentless prayers and bows to ‘diversity’ and other crap.

      RIP Steve, I’m so lucky in remembering some of your best laughs!


  39. pugnazious says:

    Great shame Steve Wright has died….always the best show on the radio…Scott Mills not so much. The BBC are giving him top billing right now…shame they didn’t give him that respect before and kept his show going considering how popular it still was.


  40. pugnazious says:

    LOL….hail in the UAE….‘We can’t say it’s climate change but…..’


    Always been snow in the desert….just ask Lawrence of Arabia. People who have served in Iraq and the Arctic say Iraq was the coldest they’ve ever been.

    ‘In the Sahara desert, known for its suffocating heat, a freak snow shower coated the dusty dunes near the Algerian town of Ain Sefra.

    It hadn’t snowed in the town called “The Gateway to the Desert” since 1979.’

    Snowed in 1979? Early onset climate change?
