    OK, I’ll go first although If Debs, Lucy or Brissles get here before my 14/15 editing minutes are up I will move over. Give up buying the Licence Fee – you know it makes sense. If Philip Schofield was able to pay a six figure compensation sum then you know the BBC D-G is paying his people far too much money at the LF-payer’s expense, especially to Gary Lineker.

    Looking at the Europe section of the World news on the Beeb’s webshite we see nothing about opposing groups of Eritrean migrants rioting in the Hague last night – but we do see at least twelve seperate articles about Alexei Navalny – so no agenda there then.

    1 – ‘No doubt’ Putin to blame for Navalny’s death – Biden
    2 – Navalny was often asked: ‘Do you fear for your life?’
    3 – Navalny’s life in ‘Polar Wolf’ remote penal colony
    4 – Putin must be held accountable – Yulia Navalny
    5 – Alexei Navalny in his own words – dark humour during dark times
    6 – How Russian state media are spinning Navalny death
    7 – Watch – What Navalny wanted to happen if he died
    8 – Russians dragged away after leaving Navalny tributes
    9 – Rosenberg: Dissent takes courage – and Navalny supporters are defiant
    10 – Navalny’s team accuses Russia of ‘hiding’ his body
    11 – The Oscar-winning film that captured Navalny’s life and future death
    12 – US and UK ambassadors to Russia lay Navalny tributes

    The sad state of the UK today: rabid mobs of Leftists and Islamofascists can spew hate all they want, but a single, solitary objector gets arrested and aggresively manhandled (by our useless cops) for holding a sign stating that Hamas is a terrorist organisation… which is our own goverment’s position!!

    Remind me, who is in charge of policing and crime for London? Oh yes, muslim Sad-IQ Khun’t.


    • MarkyMark says:

      A couple of years back, I mentioned the fatwa against Salman Rushdie and received a flurry of lively e-mails. It was Valentine’s Day 1989, you’ll recall, when the Ayatollah Khomeini issued his extraterritorial summary judgment on a British subject, and shortly thereafter large numbers of British Muslims were marching through English cities openly calling for Rushdie to be killed.

      A reader in Bradford recalled asking a West Yorkshire officer on the street that day why the various “Muslim community leaders” weren’t being arrested for incitement to murder. The officer said they’d been told to “play it cool”. The calls for blood got more raucous. My correspondent asked his question again. The policeman told him to “F— off, or I’ll arrest you.”

      • MarkyMark says:

        From website ….

        Reform is essential in these key areas:
        1. Reform our Economy:

        To succeed faster growth is vital.

        Higher growth rates are the only way to better wages and more tax revenues that can be invested in better healthcare and other public services.

        Our bold economic vision frees up over 6 million people from paying Income Tax and frees up over 1.2 million small businesses and self-employed from paying Corporation Tax.

        We would also aim to remove a raft of other stifling taxes in a responsible, timely way.

        This will generate much faster growth than seen in recent decades.

        We must also stop wasting taxpayers money… Read more

        2. Reform our Energy Strategy:

        We all care about the environment and want cleaner air, and we can do this in a strategic, affordable way. Yet the Westminster Net Zero plan is making us all net poorer whilst creating more emissions overall as it outsources them overseas. It is therefore net stupid.

        It is adding huge extra costs to us all as consumers and to our businesses. This will send hundreds of thousands of British jobs to China and elsewhere. Our energy plan will use our own energy treasure under our feet, and create thousands of British jobs, by making our industries competitive again.

        It will save consumers considerable amounts of money on their bills every year. We would also nationalise 50% of key utility companies to stop consumers being ripped off with the other 50% being owned by British pension funds for British pensioners… Read more

        3. Reform our Public Sector:

        We must be ambitious, seeking faster, more efficient public services that work better for us all.

        For example, with health, we should demand zero waiting lists and we have a bold plan to achieve this vision. Our police need to focus on preventing crime and catching criminals.

        Our schools must educate our children properly to prepare them for a competitive, challenging world. Our Border Force must protect our borders… Read more

        4. Reform our Institutions:

        Major change is needed to the bodies that impact our lives — the unelected cronyism of the House of Lords, the unaccountable civil service and the bloated BBC.

        Reform is essential to our voting system so it is fairer and more representative; the two-party system embeds the status quo and prevents real change… Read more

        “Reform the voting system: To
        make it more representative. Smaller
        parties mean more choice, new ideas,
        and better debate. Proportional
        representation is essential.”

        Together let’s Make Britain Great!

        Best Wishes,

    I haven’t watched The Apprentice for years. The Daily Mail reported that a doctor had appeared on it, Asif Munich. I presume his training was in the UK at a huge cost to the taxpayer. However, this thoroughly nasty individual has been posting both antisemitic content as well as misogynistic words on his social media. I am therefore really pleased I don’t have to have an appointment with him. I just wonder how the BBC selected him. Maybe his antisemitism was due to Sir Alan telling him he was out, but I am guessing it was his view before ever going on the series.


  7. Deborah says:

    Mark Dolan had his opinion piece tonight on GBNews on John Lewis. Let me tell you of my experience. I need some new table mats, to protect my polished table from hot plates. I went on line. On John Lewis, I could have cotton, plaited rush (like the ones I had in the 1970s) or slate, all terribly eco-friendly . Heat resistant melamine is definitely not on offer. I’m shopping elsewhere.

    Donald Trump launches own-brand shoes after $355m fraud fine

    ‘His appearance was met with loud boos as well as cheers after he presented a pair of the gold-coloured shoes’

    Note the ‘Boos’ listed first which logically makes you think it was mainly ‘boos’ but with some cheers.

    So I watched the video and I can only hear cheers.

    Then we get:
    ‘His move comes a day after a judge ordered him to pay nearly $355m (£281m) to New York state for lying about the values of his properties.’

    That would be ‘a Democrat Judge’ at the BBC in other circumstances. Because the fact is extremely important considering all the other Democrat-sourced charges he is currently facing.

    I can’t see who wrote this piece : the BBC seem to have started to not name the authors for these political activist stories.


    • Flotsam says:

      It’s interesting to remember that Mohammed Al Fayed was accused of overstating his wealth and means when he bought Harrods. Pretty much the same scenario as Trump but without a prosecution. Quasi legal financial allegations seem to be a way of knobbling people they don’t like. It’s worth pointing out that the BBC were always very vocal in their dislike of Fayed , Moslem or not.

      Whatever you might think of Fayed the Establishment hated him, something that may have led to the death of Princess Diana.


    • moggiemoo says:

      Perhaps they’re not naming the authors to lessen the risk of them being murdered on the streets by demented licence payers who are sick of the biased crap they generate?

    WHO says Gaza’s Nasser hospital not functional after Israel raids

    Just reading this and as usual, the BBC inform us that we only have the IDF’s word that Hamas are fighting from schools and hospitals. They NEVER admit it or suggest it otherwise.

    Yet buried in the middle of this article we get this – and only because it’s a UN quote:
    “Nasser hospital in Gaza is not functional anymore, after a week-long siege followed by the ongoing raid.”
    And the subject is immediately dropped and we move on to the victims.

    There seem to be enormous elephants in the room for a lot of BBC articles these days and are always because the BBC don’t want us to know something. In this case, why would a hospital be under seige ?. Why couldn’t they just walk in and look around ?.

    They show another video of Gazans barricading the doors and have a narrater telling us what the Israeli army are doing. Totally one-sided of course – but why on earth don’t they just shout ‘don’t shoot’ and open the doors ?. Who are they protecting ?. Is someone forcing them to resist ?. It’s just madness – there can’t possibly be any other outcome than the IDF get in.

    Someone who gets their news from places other than the BBC might think Hamas are the ones forcing everyone to resist to cause as much death and destruction as possible so people like the BBC can show videos like that.

    But the BBC will never go near that because it would upset the Muslims if they did. And the agenda is FAR more important than the truth.

    When you think about this (and how they don’t report when blacks kill blacks), it shows just what the Leftists at the BBC are really like. They don’t care one bit. All their ’empathy’ is fake virtue signalling to pull you to the agenda.


    • Banania says:

      If Hamas were sheltering under schools and hospitals, they would surely come out with it and tell us. After all, they are trying to win our trust.

    Not immediately obvious on the BBC webshite is this story.
    Over in Amsterdam it’s Eritreans versus…..errrr…..Eritreans!

    It must be all those peaceable refugees fleeing persecution. Are you celebrating the diversity?


  12. Sluff says:

    Not BBC but an example of the penetration everywhere of woke eco-lunacy.

    Thinking of changing my 15 year old motor, I glanced at the Which magazine car review edition. It has been taken over by the electric car zealots. Over a third of the cars featured are all-electric and naturally they take many of the highest places. No doubt the scoring methodology has been geared up to make sure this happens. But how many Which readers can afford the £100,000 for their top rated BMW or Mercedes? In comparison, many of the cars real people actually drive, such as the petrol Nissan Qashquai or Kia Sportage are not reviewed at all. Zippo.

    So even here what we have is an imposed agenda rather than a straight sensible impartial review.



    • digg says:

      Sluff, the greenie globalists already have a plan for this via increasingly harsh restrictions on the ability to own a non EV over time.

      The fact that non-EV vehicles are far and away more sensible and practical the globalists couldn’t give a toss.

      It is obvious that when the EV route is the only option, huge numbers of car owners will simply have to give up owning a car at all. So this is not about replacing fossil fuel vehicles with EV’s for the good of the environment, its actually about kicking drivers who can’t afford EV’s off the roads which means only the wealthy will then be able to use the roads.

      I believe that has been the plan all along and why such massive Global elite effort is being poured into legislation making them the only option.


      • Sluff says:

        …….which amounts to the socialisation and collectivisation of transport.

Lady driver mouthed “sorry”, which made me wonder how many near misses there are every day with these damned EVs.

      “Thanks to huge developments in the EV market over the last few years, the cheapest electric cars are now within the reach of more customers than ever before — and prices are continuing to drop. Plenty of appealing models with battery ranges exceeding 200 miles can now be picked up for less than £35,000.”


      battery ranges exceeding 200



      • Banania says:

        I like that Oh, so easy expression “picked up”. It reminds me of Belloc’s cautionary rhyme about a child frightened by a motor car: “But do not fret about it, come, We’re off to town to purchase some.”

      You mean the tofu munchers at Which? are green lefty zealots? How shocking, I never saw that one coming.


      • Scroblene says:

        Looking at the issue the correct way, it seems that these cars and vans are just not selling, therefore prices are falling through the floor!

        The whole issue of centralising power supply and making drivers buy it for EVs, means that if any of the WEF knobs decide that they want to limit the supply of electricity, all they have to do is order governments to turn off the switches! The sort of politician we have to endure these days will always roll over and let them do this!

        The financial elite can’t do that when the giant petroleum companies are in charge, (pun intended)!

        Smart meters are the start of this power grab, (pun even more intended)!

        The whole fossil fuel ‘argument’ is a complete scam to benefit the really rich, and the politically weak.

    Sir Keir Starmer calls for Gaza ‘ceasefire that lasts’

    Once again not at all interested in the story. It’s wall to wall BBC/Labour agenda propaganda. I just dip in to see what might be hidden between the lines.

    And I see the BBC place great store in the Labour leader Anas Sawar. And he’s a Muslim.

    Just as Humza Yousaf, leader of the SNP is a Muslim.

    From a country which is 1.4% Muslim.

    WTF is going on ?.

      A ‘ceasefire that lasts’. There was a ceasefire that didn’t last, but ended on October 7th. Now why was that, and what would be use of another one?

    A while ago but shockingly relevant, female CBS journalist raped in public by hundreds of muslims:

    “Lara Logan breaks silence on Cairo assault

    The night of Feb. 11, the Egyptian dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak was falling. More than 100,000 people filled Cairo’s Tahrir Square in wild celebration. Among those in the crowd was our “60 Minutes” colleague, correspondent Lara Logan.

    Lara, a native of South Africa, is an experienced war reporter, but Tahrir Square became her most hazardous assignment.

    During the revolution, dozens of reporters were assaulted, often by agents of the regime. On the night of the 11th, a mob turned on Lara and her “60 Minutes” team and singled her out in a violent sexual assault. Since then, Lara has been recuperating with her husband and two children.

    Now, she is returning to work and she has decided to tell the story of what happened – just once – on “60 Minutes.”

    She’s speaking out, she tells us, to add her voice to those who confront sexual violence; to break what she calls the “code of silence.”

    Lara arrived in Cairo at a moment of triumph for Egypt. She didn’t imagine, in the hours before midnight, she would be fighting for her life.

    Lara Logan: When we drove from the airport into Cairo that night, moments after Mubarak had stepped down, it was unbelievable. It was like unleashing a champagne cork on Egypt.

    Logan: I’m anxious to get to the square. I’ve got to be there because this is a moment in history that you don’t want to miss.

    Scott Pelley: What does it look like?

    Logan: It looks like a party.

    Logan: It’s a roar of sound because everyone is so excited and they are singing songs of the revolution and shouting slogans.

    Logan: And everybody is, you know, very physical, so you are being jostled and pushed. And sometimes people get closer. And my guys are very protective of me, you know, they want to keep people at bay. It was impossible not to get caught up in the moment, which was real moment of celebration.

    Pelley: Tell me about your team.

    Logan: Our producer was Max McClellan. My cameraman was Richard Butler.

    Logan: We had a local fixer Bahaa, whose job was to bridge the divide for us as foreigners.

    Logan: We had two Egyptian drivers with us who were purely there to act as security and bodyguards. And then we had a security person, Ray, who’s done security all over the world.

    She reported, without a hint of trouble, for more than an hour.

    Pelley: And what happened then?

    Logan: Our camera battery went down. And we had to stop for a moment. And suddenly Bahaa looks at me and says, “We’ve gotta get out of here.”

    Pelley: He’s Egyptian. He speaks Arabic. And he can hear what the crowd is saying?

    Logan: Yes.

    Pelley: He understands what no one else in the crew understands?

    Logan: That’s right. I was told later that they were saying “Let’s take her pants off.” And it’s like suddenly, before I even know what’s happening, I feel hands grabbing my breasts, grabbing my crotch, grabbing me from behind. I mean – and it’s not one person and then it stops – it’s like one person and another person and another person. And I know Ray is right there, and he’s grabbing at me and screaming, “Lara hold onto me, hold onto me.”

    As she was pulled into the frenzy, the camera recorded Lara’s shout: “Stop!”

    Produced by Robert AndersonLogan: And I’m screaming, thinking if I scream, if they know, they’re gonna stop, you know. Someone’s gonna stop them. Or they’re gonna stop themselves. Because this is wrong. And it was the opposite. Because the more I screamed, it turned them into a frenzy.

    Someone in the crowd shouted that she was an Israeli, a Jew. Neither is true. But, to the mob, it was a match to gasoline. The savage assault turned into a murderous fury.

    Logan: I have one arm on Ray. I’ve lost the fixer, I’ve lost the drivers. I’ve lost everybody except him. And I feel them tearing at my clothing. I think my shirt, my sweater was torn off completely. My shirt was around my neck. I felt the moment that my bra tore. They tore the metal clips of my bra. They tore those open. And I felt that because the air, I felt the air on my chest, on my skin. And I felt them tear out, they literally just tore my pants to shreds. And then I felt my underwear go. And I remember looking up, when my clothes gave way, I remember looking up and seeing them taking pictures with their cell phones, the flashes of their cell phone cameras.

    Pelley: Ray reported that he found himself with the sleeve of your jacket in his hand. It had been completely ripped from the rest of the jacket.

    Logan: I felt at that moment that Ray was my only hope of survival. You know, he was looking at me and I could see his face and we had a sea of people between us, obviously tearing at both of us, beating us. I didn’t even know that they were beating me with flagpoles and sticks and things, because I couldn’t even feel that. Because I think of the sexual assault, was all I could feel, was their hands raping me over and over and over again.

    Pelley: Raping you with their hands?

    Logan: Yeah.

    Pelley: Nonstop. During this whole time?

    Logan: From the front, from the back. And I didn’t know if I could hold onto Ray. I’m holding on to him. I didn’t wanna let go of him. I thought I was gonna die if I lost hold of him.

    But in that moment Ray, a former special forces soldier, was torn away.

    Logan: When I lost Ray, I thought that was the end. It was like all the adrenaline left my body. ‘Cause I knew in his face when he lost me, he thought I was gonna die. They were tearing my body in every direction at this point, tearing my muscles. And they were trying to tear off chunks of my scalp, they had my head in different directions.

    Pelley: Pulling at your hair?

    Logan: Oh yeah, not trying to pull out my hair, holding big wads of it, literally trying to tear my scalp off my skull. And I thought, when I thought I am going to die here, my next thought was I can’t believe I just let them kill me, that that was as much fight as I had. That I just gave in and I gave up on my children so easily, how could you do that?

    Pelley: Your daughter and your son are one and two years old?

    Logan: I had to fight for them. And that’s when I said, “Okay, it’s about staying alive now. I have to just surrender to the sexual assault. What more can they do now? They’re inside you everywhere.” So the only thing to fight for, left to fight for, was my life.

    It was a fight she endured about 25 minutes.

    Logan: I was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying. I thought, not only am I gonna die here, but it’s gonna be just a torturous death that’s going to go on forever and ever and ever.

    Lara was dragged along by the mob until they were stopped by a fence. At that spot, a group of Egyptian women were camped out.

    Logan: And I almost fell into the lap of this woman on the ground who was head to toe in black, just her eyes, I remember just her eyes, I could see.

    Pelley: Wearing a chador.

    Logan: Yes. And she put her arms around me. And oh my God, I can’t tell you what that moment was like for me. I wasn’t safe yet, because the mob was still trying to get at me. But now it wasn’t just about me anymore. It was about their women and that was what saved me, I think. The women kind of closed ranks around me. And I remember one or two, maybe three men standing with them and throwing, the women were throwing water in the crowd. And they were pouring water over me, ’cause I couldn’t breathe. You know I was I was rasping.

    By this time her team had convinced a group of soldiers to go in after her.

    Logan: Finally, finally some soldiers fought their way through the crowd with batons, beating the mob back, and that was the moment I thought, “I have a chance to get out of here alive.” And I grabbed the first soldier and I did not let him go. I did, boy, I was not letting go of him. And I am screaming and hysterical, I’m like a wild thing at this point. Imagine my hair is everywhere because they tried to tear my scalp to pieces, my clothes are shredded, I am filthy, black with dirt from going down into the filth.

    Pelley: The soldiers took you out of there?

    Logan: That one soldier that I was holding onto, he threw me over his back and they still had to beat the mob back to get through it, back to the tank, where they had more soldiers.

    Pelley: What happened in that moment when you first were reunited with the rest of the crew?

    Logan: I remember Max going down on his knees in front of me. And he said, “I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. ”

    By the time producer Max McClellan saw Lara, she was in the arms of one of the drivers, dangling as if her legs were broken.

    Max McClellan: She looked like a rag doll. She looked completely limp. She looked like someone who was physically, emotionally and mentally spent. Overwhelmed.

    The soldiers drove Lara and her “60 Minutes” team back to their hotel, where a doctor examined her.

    McClellan: She was basically sore everywhere. Head to toe. It was like she had been through some sort of grinder.

    The next morning, Max and Lara flew back to the U.S.

    Pelley: When you landed in Washington, you didn’t go home. You went straight to the hospital.

    Logan: And I stayed there for four days, which was hard. My muscles were so unbelievably sore, because they were literally stretched from the mob trying to tear my limbs off my body. My joints, every joint in my body was distended. And then they, the more intimate injuries, the injuries, the tearing inside. And the mark of their hands, their fingers all over my body, cuts and everything you could imagine. But no broken bones. ”

      I remember reading an article about this at the time that said that muslim men call it the rape game where they isolate trap and rape to death a single woman, groups of women of two or more are just raped. It’s what happened New Year’s Eve in Cologne’s square and all over Germany 2015/2016. With the Mayor of Cologne basically blaming the women and many women stating that they had been present at the welcoming marches to welcome the so called refugees.

    The nazis did unspeakable things to jews, many, many muslims would like to do the same if not worse, to not just Israelis, but jews everywhere,as attacks in Europe and elsewhere prove.

    The cognitive dissonance of the wokes and far left who support the Gazans and others who are even worse beggars belief.

To bring the SAF market to scale, massive investment is required across all stages of the supply chain, including upstream renewable energy, sustainable feedstock, refineries and blending facilities, and distribution networks”

      You will always pay the price for meeting your heroes. When it comes to Mark Drakeford’s case that is literally the case. Bill and Hilary Clinton paid a visit to Swansea University last November to chat about “Leadership for Future Generations” with the university’s vice-chair, Drakeford himself, and some sixth-formers. Guido’s readers would be forgiven for thinking that the university would foot the bill….

      A Freedom of Information request has revealed that the Welsh Government shelled out a whopping £75,000 of taxpayer cash for the university to host its event with the couple.

    Having posted recently about the liberal media’s need to stifle outrage in the native population after every atrocity, here’s a perfect BBC example of its inverse: “Nina Simone on how fury fuelled her songs”

I thought we should get our rights by any means necessary.”

    Having to wade through such tedious bilge to get a simple answer to a question like, ‘Did they play second gravedigger in Great Expectations’, or similar, becomes a bit of a nightmare, as sometimes, I really do want to see what a decent actor or actress has done, when spotted in another series or play!

    As the list of hangers on with Beeboids’ and other broadcasters’ teams gets longer after each episode, and the ‘credits’ are rolling with tiresome boredom, the days of laughing at the term, ‘gaffer’, have long disappeared.

    It’s a pretty low trick to pull on the Post Office victims, but to then add insult to injury by lying about it ……

    What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we’ll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then?
