    The Hamas Broadcasting Corporation is going to town about all the Palestinians that were killed when Israel managed to free two of their hostages.

    Funnily enough, the idea that the way to prevent this was for Hamas to simply release the hostages didn’t seem to occur to the BBC news team. Neither did they suggest what Israel was supposed to do instead.

    Just dredging the gutter again.


    • digg says:

      Yes and I heard them say “meanwhile in Israel’s war in Gaza….”

      Which of course should have been “meanwhile in the war in Gaza…..

      Or better still, “ meanwhile in the war against the anti-terrorist group Hamas in Gaza….”

      It’s always in the way they say it isn’t it?

      They just had to paint as a war against the people of Gaza and therefore no mention of the cowardly brutality of the Hamas non-declaration of war against Israel before they started the killing.

      Despicable people at the BBC.

      DW statement
      I was brought up to trust in the English legal system; to believe in freedom, due process, natural justice and the rule of law – the right of every man or woman to a fair trial, and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law.

      But since July 2023, I was the victim of a politically-motivated witch hunt through the left-wing and social media led by a hard left activist, a convicted phone hacker, a convicted extortionist, and a deranged an abusive ex who had threatened on the record to slit my throat and previously admitted to being a psychopath with dark urges.

      The accusations made against me were completely spurious – lies designed to destroy my career where complainants were actuated by malice.

      Well six months on, I have now been completely cleared in two investigations by the Metropolitan and Scottish Police, who have confirmed they will be taking no further action.

      While I knew this would always be the outcome,
      the process is now the punishment, with social media acting as the executioner.

      Margaret Thatcher once said that if you ever get trial by media, or guilt by accusation, that day freedom dies.

      She was right. It is high time that all of our ancient rights were once again upheld, chief among them the right to be presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.

      If it falls to me to be the champion of those rights, then so be it. It is a fight I am more than willing to take up, not just for me but for all of us.

    On today’s turmoil

    Tom Gallagher NEW book Europe’s Leadership Famine
    One of the blackest days for British democracy seen for many years.
    The fig leaf that Speaker Hoyle is clinging to is that it was necessary to break the rules to prevent the risk of not just MPs but their families facing violence.
    The issue is a foreign one where Britain has no security role and about which most British citizens do not have outspoken views.
    But Gaza has been mobilised by the far left and above all by Muslim communal politicians, both lots displaying their complete detachment from British interests and concerns.
    They have been allowed to acquire such influence chiefly I believe down to one factor.
    The decision of London’s Labour mayor Sadiq Khan to encourage the holding of incendiary marches in the capital almost every weekend since October 7. (I use the word ‘encourage’ deliberately).
    This has been like shouting fire in a crowded theatre. It has emboldened alienated, confused, impressionable as well as deeply unpleasant and anti-democratic individuals and groups to push well beyond the limits of permissible behaviour..
    Life has been made a misery of above all for Jews and indeed anyone who dares to recoil from the pro-Hamas message.
    Khan is a Dr Frankenstein who is busy creating a new and terrible London that will soon be unrecognisable if things continue as they are for much longer.
    It is a matter of acute shame that he could, and still can be easily stopped, by:
    his party leader, Starmer or by an alert and strong Prime minister by taking away the powers over the police that he wields
    It is not just trust in Britain’s parliamentary rules which has been a casualty of today’s unseemly actions but the country’s reputation for stability and safety.
    Let’s face it. Britain is no longer the place of safety that it was for hundreds of years.
    It is increasingly lawless and dangerous.
    Hoyle basically admitted that there is now a vacuum where confidently-exercised central authority once existed.
    Ignorant, cowardly, and short-term politicians of very low calibre are pushing this country towards huge levels of unrest.
    My only consolation is that there will likely be a strong counter-reaction to what Nigel Farage calls the new sectarianism increasingly at the heart of British politics. But it must come soon or else there may be a terrible reckoning that makes what happened in Northern Ireland late last century seem like a picnic.

    “Russia ‘struggling with supply of weapons and ammunition’ for Ukraine war – Western officials”


    The BBC doing their usual trust me bro.

    “…according to Western officials….
    ….an official said.
    …a Western official claimed,
    …They pointed to..
    …they said..
    …But officials believe..
    The comments by officials…

    The official also said…
    …from Western officials …

    “Previous predictions that Russia was about to run out of missiles or other weapons have not always proved correct.”

    Can the BBC name one thing they ran out of ?


    • JohnC says:

      I remember a hospital was going to run out of fuel at midnight because of nasty Israel. Of course we weren’t told that Hamas terrorists were taking the fuel for themselves.

    BBC 10pm news – Hamas has deployed Fergal undertaker Keane to chuck crude pro Hamas propaganda out at taxpayers over the rescue of Israeli hostages last week … keep going IDF …


    • JohnC says:

      Just reading that Fed.

      It’s an absolutely disgraceful lop-sided piece and I’m sure Fergal has simply put words in other peoples mouths for it which fit his agenda – which seems to be entirely acceptable at the BBC now because it is so very obvious.

      He starts with:

      ‘Before falling asleep, the couple discussed what to do about two of their children who had been injured. Their son had been burned by scalding food, and their daughter was recovering from facial paralysis caused by trauma in the early stages of the war.’

      The focus of this article SHOULD be how Hamas are holding hostages and how they are using civilians as shields. This disgrace to journalism doesn’t go anywhere near either of them. Instead it plays right into the hands of why Hamas are doing it.

      Perhaps if the BBC shamed Hamas in these stories and pressured them to release the hostages and stop murdering civilians (because that’s what it is) , we might see some progress to stop the deaths of the innocent. It is to the eternal and unrecoverable shame of the BBC and the Left that they are not doing that.

      You should be ashamed of yourself Fergal Keane. Perhaps the BBC should not be using far-Left activist journalists who suffer from PTSD to write about topics like this. Speaking of which, Bowen seems very quiet these days.

      It’s a dark day when the business of running the country is affected by fears of threats and violence against MP’s if they do not bow down to the mob.

      We imported third world, now we’ve got it along with all the dirty baggage which comes with it.

      I agree completely : keep going IDF and cut out this cancer so it will take years to grow back. Otherwise you will be doing it all again as soon as they can reorganise.

    Not the kind of thing you hear on the MSM, but perhaps they should be telling people giving the importance.

    Some might recall the post I made about the amount of bonds the US government need to refinance and to sell. Yesterday was an auction for 20 year bonds and it was a disaster as predicted.

    If the US cannot re-finance its debt as I have suggested, then the only solution is to print which will lead to massive levels of inflation. It might take a couple of years but it is inevitable.

    From Tower of Fable to Tower of Babel, London edition

    We all sense how Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is little more than a seat warmer for Starmer.

    Now we learn the Commons Speaker is Sir Keir’s chief fluffer and arse wiper: Telegraph can reveal Sir Keir Starmer lobbied Hoyle to choose amendment

    The rot set in earlier but certainly since Brexit shenanigans the Commons has become a farce.

    The Whitehall farces were a series of five long-running comic stage plays at the Whitehall Theatre in London, presented by the actor-manager Brian Rix, in the 1950s and 1960s. They were in the low comedy tradition of British farce… Reluctant Heroes, Dry Rot, Simple Spymen, One For The Pot and Chase Me, Comrade (Thank you Wiki)

    How very apposite – some of those titles strike one today.

    In 1966, having been unable to secure the lease of the Whitehall Theatre, Rix took his company on tour in Chase Me, Comrade and Bang, Bang Beirut (later retitled Stand By Your Bedouin)

    And so it is we have lots of fun with flags (TM Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory) on the frontpage of the Guardian – where the feature photo is of course a headscarf bedecked woman surrounded by lots of examples of the old red, white, green and black: Protesters outside Parliament yesterday… – Mr AsI tends to distrust nations with black in their flag – it’s a personal prejudice.

    Famine fear as violence hampers aid effort… UN attempt to deliver 10 convoys of food aid… lorries were looted by crowds, a driver beated up and gunfire reported amid chaotic scenes (Guardian) – draw your own conclusions there, folks.

    The FT takes a break from selling England by the pound: Tower of fable… London landmark sold to US luxury hotel operator in £275mn deal – to notice some UK politics: Walkout over Gaza motion brings chaos to Commons – meanwhile the FT’s frontpage feature photo portrays in gloriously stark nostalgic black and white: Children play beneath the Post Office Tower in London in 1965 – all of them white.

    They do say the formerly GPO Tower latterly BT Tower was built in circular form so as to best withstand a cold war era nuclear blast in the capital.

    Speaking of which our mate Matt in the Telegraph is bang on target with his cartoon of a Royal Navy submarine crew: “Our Trident missile is veering off course. I hope it doesn’t hit the UK’s only working aircraft carrier”

    Civil servants demand more pay for less work (Telegraph) – further comment would seem superfluous on this one – except to say that this isn’t a few of our select top mandarins, from the First Division Association trades union – now upgraded and rebranded as The Premier League – I jest of course. This is in fact: …more than 200,000 civil servants across 213 departments and agencies (Telegraph) – that’s right, folks – 213 departments.

    No update on Operation Mincemeat

    During the present hiatus in news of Abdul Shokoor Ezedi the Clapham alkali attacker – while our authorities carefully peruse his dental records – lucky bugger, how did he wangle an NHS dentist? – the sweet toothed among us have news aplenty to interest us…

    Respect the menopause or be sued, firms told… New rules list symptoms as potential disability (Times)

    Euromillions jackpot of joy (Mirror); Lotto winners’ jackpot shock… We thought we’d won £2.60… it was £61,708,231… National Lottery email saying they had exciting news… checked online and saw the tiny sum… (freebie Metro)

    Perhaps the National Lottery were using the same computer modelling to come up with £2.60 as the ONS are using for their unemployment numbers data crunching: ‘Shoddy data’ puts battle with inflation in jeopardy… according to governor Andrew Bailey jobs data from the Office for National Statistics is deeply flawed… Flawed labour market survey has left rate-setters unsure on even basic questions such as the level of unemployment… there was no real alternative to the labour force survey (LFS) to find out how many people were out of work or why… When Covid hit, forcing a switch from in-person to telephone interviews, responses to the old survey plummeted (FT) – quick editorial adjustment required there: When Covid Lockdown hit, forcing a switch from in-person to telephone interviews…

    …the underlying problem was not one of money, but of trying to get people to respond to surveys… senior lawmakers such as Lord Bridges said progress dealing with the UK’s “shoddy data” is urgently needed. (FT)

    Just a reminder (see above): more than 200,000 civil servants across 213 departments and agencies

      The immigrants make their way north, having no desire to assimilate to French culture, but continuing to demand a First World standard of living, even as they flout laws, do not produce, and murder French citizens, such as factory bosses and shopkeepers, as well as the ordinary people who do not welcome them. They are also joined by the immigrants who already reside in Europe, as well as various left-wing and anarchist groups. Across the West, more and more migrants arrive and have children, rapidly growing to outnumber whites. In a matter of months, the white West has been overrun and pro-immigrant governments have been established, while the white people are ordered to share their houses and flats with the immigrants.

    He rots the soul of a nation

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. (Boris Johnson)

    But it cannot survive treason from within.(Theresa May)

    An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. (Anjem Choudary)

    But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.(Jeremy Corbyn)

    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    ‘Britain will pay a high price for abandoning its Christian heritage ‘
    ‘The irony is that so-called identity politics so often takes an axe to the roots of our identity. For who we are is not just something we magically dream up in a cultural vacuum, but grows out of a thousand thousand inherited cultural reference points, laid down over time. These form the background against which things make sense. ‘

    Nah, nah…just trash it, chuck it into the dock and replace whites in history programmes with Blacks and Black lies in the interest of inclusion and inventing a ‘black history’ that they can cling to.

    Fraser was very political when at the BBC but now, after supping with the Devil for so long, he questions the consequences of what his former colleagues have brought about as identity politics destroys Britain, if not the West, the BBC quite happy to tell you there is no such thing as ‘British culture’ or a ‘British identity’ as it tries to undermine such things as part of its gaslighting us about immigration…no such thing as ‘British’ as we’re all immigrants….and of course it is the BBC that has led the charge against Christianity so much of the time….Muslim Mishal Husain declaring on Today that it was a ‘backward and unpleasant’ ideology….the BBC on the other hand telling us how wonderful the ‘religion of peace’ is.

    11:45 R4 book prog presenter Just now “I thought couldn’t we have one vaguely nice white character in this book
    all the white characters are poisonous .. but maybe I need to think..”

    It’s a book her guest has chosen
    Founder of Stemettes and author of ‘She’s In CTRL’ Anne-Marie Imafidon picks Kelechi Okafor’s science-fiction debut, which looks at the relationship between technology and society in the near-future.

    The show appears to 3 women ..a female white presenter and 2 female guests, 1 black and one Tamil from Singapore

      That writer is in the #BeKind club


    • StewGreen says:

      Here’s that author talking about ‘white supremacy depends on portraying white women as good’
      So presumably she therefore feels entitled to always portray white women negatively ……. #ThatsRacist

    bbc spin on the Ukraine/Russian war:-

    Rosenberg: How two years of war in Ukraine changed Russia

    Lets be honest bbc, its all about wearing down Russia and nothing to do with saving Ukraine

      Media and spin on any war, especially certain places.

      Alex Crawford
      If you can, this was set up by fellow journalists and friends of Marie Colvin (@lindseyhilsum and @bbclysedoucet) and they could use support

      The ‘Take the kids to battle’ day with the head covered in a thin scarf is especially emoting, and useless. At least Mum gets the sexy jacket.

      Then there is Butt Cheek #2 Rusho

      Media Confidential
      Are journalists being targeted in Gaza?
      Does the word “PRESS” on a flak jacket keep a journalist safe or make them a target?

      In modern battles? Probably depends mostly where they are. Standing next to the guys shooting at the other side in civvies… neither, especially when it has become a fashion accessory.

      Please support their incredible work

      Some now prefer to hang out in the foyer of the office near the bar.

      Filming the end sequence (known in the business as ‘the Outro’, as opposed to ‘the Intro’) for tonight’s #UnspunWorld on ⁦@BBCTwo⁩. Dave Murphy is cameraman. The hand is camerawoman Katherina Werner’s. It’s a scary edition tonight: is WW3 on its way? Has Putin won his war?

      Simpo is also using Alan’s what is known in the business as ‘question as a headline’ to sow some seeds with deniability down the line.

      Pompous oaf. Katherine got a flak jacket?

    “In the lecture, Rand admonishes American businessmen for apologizing for capitalism and for, in some cases, directly funding detractors of the free market. Notably, she says that “It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.” She also answers audience questions after the lecture.”

    “It is a moral crime to give money to support your own destroyers.”

    Melinda French Gates: Six things we learned when she spoke to Kirsty Young
    In her BBC Radio 4 podcast Young Again, journalist and broadcaster Kirsty Young takes her guests back to meet their younger selves and asks the question: if you knew then what you know now, what would you have done differently?

    Melinda French Gates is an American philanthropist, former computer developer, and the ex-wife of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. In 2000, she and Bill Gates co-founded the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a charitable organisation with the aim of improving healthcare and reducing extreme poverty across the world.

    Here’s the things we learned when she met Kirsty Young…
