    It takes a local Tory Cllr to say what the whole country thinks, some sense at last:

    Moment council meeting descends into chaos after pro-Palestine protesters stage demo before scuffles erupt when Tory councillor attempts to restore order. Pro-Palestine protesters in Chorley, Lancashire ‘hijacked’ budget meeting.

    Tory councillor Craige Southern shouted: ‘It’s Chorley, not bloody Gaza!'”

      They are becoming emboldened around the world, intimidating all while still desperately trying to play the victim.

      Giless posted a chart earlier showing how their percentage within a population changes their behaviour as their infestation increases.

      It is worth looking at, over 5% and they are off on their bloody jihad, running riot. We are getting closer and closer to that and the evidence is before our eyes.

      It is plain for all to see, while politicians look away.

      BTW, welcome to the site giless 🙂

    Just listening to the BBC radio series ‘Tommies’ which is a dramatisation of World War 1.

    It started off OK. The author clearly doesn’t know much about real war and technology, but it was quite entertaining.

    Entertaining that is up until about 15 hours in (halfway). Then all of a sudden, the main characters changed to be women. And the typical ‘agenda’ BBC women : the last episode has a single woman commanding a squad of soldiers giving them the rousing speech in the trench before they went over the top then screaming at them all as she led the charge across no-mans land like Arnold Schawrzanegger – right up to shousting step-by-step instructions at the idiot men to take a machine gun nest.

    Then while I was searching google for ANY instance of a woman doing that, we had one who was single-handedly going to negotiate the end of the war with the Germans, but evil-whitey officers stopped her at the last minute because her plan was too nice and humane.

    Now we have some Allies in a POW camp which oddly has a female POW in there and sure enough, shes barking orders at the men left right and centre. And their only comment is to acknowledge how clever she is for pointing out how stupid they are.

    Every single woman in it is some kind of genius in her field – whether a doctor, a soldier or a spy. I was unaware there were so many at the front : silly me thought they were at home making shells and harvesting wheat.

    Not sure I can listen to much more. This is a classic BBC trick : they start something ‘normally’, then when they’ve got people watching it, they bring in the agenda knowing they are not likely to suddenly turn it off at that stage. And then the social conditioning begins.


    • Zephir says:

      Yes, that’s one thing I have noticed over many years with many women in positions of authority in the workplace.
      They love barking orders.

      In a wider context, the teachers, especially from junior schools are also a nightmare in this regard, in any walk of life.

    Mr Politico dissects the shouts against Lee Anderson


  7. Zephir says:

    So, Hamas are still holding innocent hostages, women and children included, some released have attested to being sexually assaulted, generally abused and starved.

    Have you heard ANY concerns, empathy or demands in any islamist protests for the release of these victims ?

    Or any condemnation of the palestinian general population, including women and children who shouted abuse at them, spat upon them and physically abused them ?

    That tells you all you need to know about these islamists, it’s not about “free palestine” its about “kill Jews” nothing less than that.

    • Zephir says:

      Yes, tell that to the family of Lee James Rigby.

      “”He was repeatedly stabbed and it appears it was Michael Adebolajo who made a serious and almost successful attempt to decapitate Lee Rigby with multiple blows to his neck made with the meat cleaver,” Whittam said.

      “They had committed a cowardly and callous murder by deliberately attacking an unarmed man in civilian clothes from behind using a vehicle as a weapon,” he added.

      The jury of eight women and four men was told Adebolajo, who was carrying a Koran on the day of the attack, had bought a set of five knives and a sharpener the day before. Whittam said it appeared he had picked up Adebowale, who had converted to Islam at 17, on the morning of the killing.

      The court fell silent as the jury were shown closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of the moment the Vauxhall Tigra car drove at Rigby.

      There were gasps in the courtroom as his body was thrown onto the car’s windscreen. Rigby’s family were among those watching, some close to tears.

      He was wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with “Help for Heroes,” a military charity, and was carrying a camouflage-patterned rucksack.

      Whittam told the court Amanda Bailey had witnessed the car accelerate into Rigby before carrying him down the road and crashing into a road sign. The driver then got out carrying the cleaver.

      “He knelt down by Lee Rigby and took hold of his hair. He then repeatedly hacked at the right side of his neck just below the jawline,” Whittam said. “He was using considerable force, bringing his hand into the air each time before he struck.”

      Bailey saw him hack nine times at Rigby’s neck, Whittam said. Witnesses Gary Perkins and Gill Hucks called it an “horrific frenzied attack”, he added.

      “He (Perkins) saw Michael Adebolajo sawing at the neck of Lee Rigby with a machete and the other man trying to cut bits of the body by hacking away at it,” Whittam said. “He described the actions as being like a butcher attacking a joint of meat.”

      Whittam said witness Vikki Cave had heard Adebolajo talking about religion.

      He told her: “These soldiers go to our land, kill or bomb our people, so an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” Whittam told the court.”

    Rochdale bi election – vote early vote often – im sure the Muslims in the council doing the count will get the ‘best’ candidate …..

    … caught comrade Robinson interviewing someone from the Jewish community .. Robinson said the Hamas demos were ‘mostly peaceful ‘ and ‘there hadn’t been many arrests ‘ which indicated the demos were ‘ok’ .

    The interviewee sadly failed to deal with this . The reason there are few arrests is because the Islamic police look away – or support the demo ….. it’s the case where the blue labour have allowed another institution to run itself and disengage from the core British public – it has become as alien as those Hamas demonstrators . Keep going IDF …

    TOADY Watch #1 – oh dear, admit that you don’t really know the answer …

    During the first half-hour of the programme, Will Baine had three women contributors to comment on matters business and economic. They all umm’d, ahh’d, errrr’d and hesitated and really did not know what they were talking about. The worst was a S.African female, judging by the accent, think her name was Seneca Vries. Completely hopeless, it was a painful listening experience.

    Will, you need to get Gillian Tett or Stephanie Flanders (former BBC Economics Editor) to contribute to your business segments of TOADY. They know the answers to your questions and are experienced broadcasters and journalists.


    • Peter Grimes says:

      Surely they can read from the accepted Al Beeb script.
      The only thing Stephanie Flanders had going for her was that she wasn’t too bad looking and had once dated BoJo. Her economics knowledge was straight from the Leftoid Lexicon.


  11. Fedup2 says:

    I heard a loon interview yesterday – by chance – about some ‘autism charity ‘ campaigning to change the way people are selected for jobs . It goes like this – autistic types don’t do well at job interviews – so do away with job interviews – simples .

    Having been someone who once interviewed people for jobs I spat my tea out on hearing this crap . Would I really select someone who can’t hack an interview over someone normal ?

    And imagine the trouble they’d be ready to cause the company if accepted ? And the law suits ? No way – but that’s the bbc and public bodies which can afford to carry trouble on the taxpayers’ dime …..


    • Peter Grimes says:

      The big IT companies, Guggle etc, actively recruit autistic types. The ‘daughter’, formerly a guy, of a friend of ours is one such.

      Avid readers here will immediately spot the link between mental imbalance and transgender.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      I’m going to do a devil’s advocate here, having been involved with IT recruitment during my career. Which is that – at least with some roles in IT – ‘it depends’. You probably wouldn’t have a person with severe autism in a customer facing role, but for some backroom roles such as programming, cryptography, security and bug-fixing, some autistic individuals can be extremely good and effective due to their tendency to be obsessed with and focused on a single topic. The key thing is that they generally need to be kept away from other people. These people can also be good at certain roles in intelligence work and also end up in the security services. And yes, wider mental issues can be a problem with them, although transgenderism hadn’t been invented when I was working in this field.


  12. Fedup2 says:

    It seems Jo Rowling is the subject of another witch hunt – over the fact that men commit more crimes than wimmin . I shuddered when I saw this telegraph piece because when I studied criminology this was a fixation .

    Why are there always more mens’ prisons than wimmins’? Easy – cultural control has always allowed men to be more violent – but reducing cultural controls would see more women in courts … that’s the theory . But now that’s clouded by vermin from the third world as well as the trans crap .

    Anyway Jo Rowling being attacked again – but at least she has plenty of well earned cash to protect her …can’t stand Harry Potter ….

    Far left racism update
    1. On Toady I swear I heard Rick Knobson referring to a comment by Donald Trump as. ‘Racist trope’. The topic was mass illegal immigration from Mexico into Texas. Naturally the BBC chose to interview a mother (no father) getting her two children across the Rio Grande. She had travelled from Honduras.
    2. It’s the Rochdale bi-election today. I wonder what issues will stir the minds of voters there? The economy? NHS? Inflation? Education? Levelling up? Or could the driving factor possibly be what’s going on two thousand lies away on a strip of land where the inhabitants have a particular ethnicity and religion?
    I do so hope someone gets on Lee Anderson when the result is announced.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Sluff – I wonder when Islamic plod will arrest mr Anderson for ‘suspected public order offences ‘ and put him on bail to shut him up – the political legal system – used on the likes of Tommy Robinson and others ‘unapproved ‘… the decline continues …

        But given the diverse population of Rochdale appears to be choosing between
        a. A pro Palestinian left winger campaigning on racial/ religious lines and
        b. Another pro Palestinian left winger campaigning on racial/ religious lines, then maybe my spelling was right after all.


  15. The Mouse says:

    BBC News – Sunak says “Officers must use their powers against people who undermine democracy by targeting MP’s”.

    What he could have added ” Police officers and those policing our borders should not stop those illegally entering the country, even if the migrant is unknown, unvetted, with an extreme criminal and radical past. Even if it leads to deaths to young girls at pop concerts, stabbings of gay friends, random knife attacks on people with a white skin colour, rapes, etc”.

    May those coward politicians who have not raised their voice against this ‘sink into a third world country’ be the first to reap what they have sown.


  16. Guest Who says:

    This is shaping up a treat.

    The idea underpinning this “blacks only” scheme is that black people can only be truly free away from “the white gaze”.
    That’s a counsel of despair in regard to a multi-racial society and a would-be rationale for apartheid. “Progressivism” has taken a terrible turn.

    Going to make Vile a ratings billionaire of both ‘shows’.

    Ben Lawrence in the Telegraph reflects: It feels like Radio 3 hates its listeners

    The Guardian nails its colours firmly to the mast this morning – whereas the Daily Express dropped their long-running United with the people of Ukraine when the going got tough – the leftist Gruan is reflexively anti-nation, anti-Christian, anti-Trump and pro-democracy – but only pro-democracy when it delivers leftist results of course.

    Penny Mordaunt has told Jeremy Hunt, the Chancellor, that the Government’s ‘first duty’ is to protect Britain (Telegraph) – No, no, no, calm down Penny, dear. The UK adminstration’s first duty is to act as Satrap, local provincial governance, acting in the interests of international finance and US Dollar hegemony.

    The secret carnage of military losses in Ukraine… Both Kyiv and Moscow are downplaying or keeping silent about the number of soldiers killed and wounded… one of the best-kept secrets… US officials quoted on condition of anonymity by the New York Times on August 21. They put the number of soldiers killed and wounded on both sides since February 2022 at 500,000… Breaking down those figures, Russia is said to have 120,000 dead (out of 300,000 total casualties) and Ukraine 70,000 dead (out of 200,000). (Le Monde)

    The Biden administration’s last public estimate of casualties came in November, when Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that more than 100,000 troops on each side had been killed or wounded since the war began in February 2022. At the time, officials said privately that the numbers were closer to 120,000 killed and wounded. (New York Times)

    Desperate for soldiers, Ukraine weighs unpopular plan to expand the draft…Brigades of 3,000-5,000 soldiers are typically fighting with only 75% of their full strength, according to Vadym Ivchenko, a lawmaker who is part of the parliament’s national security, defense and intelligence committee.

    A statement of fact: Every issue or every issue subject to debate, has a beginning. A ‘start’ point. A ‘genesis’ if you will.

    The biased politicians/BBC/MSM ploy is to start at a different point in the main issue/debate and all subject to their own position on the subject matter. Glaringly. A recent classic example is that so far as the biased politicians/BBC/MSM point of view is concerned, the Israel war started when Israel ‘invaded’ Gaza. That’s their starting point. Not the Hammas invasion in October 2023. All nicely forgotten. The ‘Omission by bias’

    “Protests descending into mob rule, Rishi Sunak warns police”


    The omission by bias here? Rich Sunak fails to acknowledge he and his kind let the f**ke*s in in the first place. The Genesis. But as others have already pointed out, rightly, Rich Sunak will now promote legislation to protect themselves. Justice? went long ago.

    TOADY Watch #2 – if you can’t stand the fine, don’t do the crime!
    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – if you can’t stand the fine, don’t do the crime! *

    One of the news items exercising the BBC on R4 is the news that parental fines are to be increased from £60 to £80 (no doubt the BBC are bearing in mind the-cost-of-living-crisis the BBC have helped create) for each child that is kept out of school for an absence of five days or more without permission from the Headmaster/Headmistress.

    Back when I was a school pupil it was a legal requirement for me to be in school under the ‘Butler Act’; Conservative Government legislation that was considered ‘progressive’ at the time. In fact there were claimed to be ‘inspectors’ who when alerted by a school could check whether an absence from school indicated a child forced into work illegally.

    Since my time in school studies have been done that indicate a child is harmed both academically and socially by prolonged absence from school. Teacher unions, artificial pandemics notwithstanding and government responses thereto, please note!

    My parents would not considere taking us out of school in term time but then we always holidayed in Britain and my parents didn’t have to find a cheap holiday to fly themselves and their children halfway around the world just for a holiday. And to impress relatives, friends and neighbours.

    @atlas shrugged

    Let me tell you something about domestic abuse.

    If you have a wife on a marriage visa, and if she is asked to leave due to her behaviour …the visa is no longer valid


    The bloody home office, in their wisdom states that if she can get a successful police conviction for domestic abuse, she can stay in the country.

    So the temptation is there:

    This entails the husband getting arrested by 5 police officers at his door, marched down the street into a police car and locked up all day in a cell, prior to being questioned at length, mobile phone seized, bailed and prevented from entering home town for the 3 month investigation, which is then extended for another 3 months.

    No access to email or bank due to the two step verification process involving a phone taken by the police, phone contacts lost etc, etc.

    Finally case dropped no futher action, I won’t go into details but an unreliable witness and patently false allegations that are poroveable to be false

    What a bloody great idea from the bloody home office.

    When immigration police are contacted to report various frauds committed by said woman and the fact she is STILL living and working illegally in England, and when I mention the clause about domestic abuse covictions allowing her to stay here, as her motive for allegations, their answer ?

    Gaza death toll exceeds 30,000, Hamas-run health ministry says

    Quick check of this article to see how it handles the only points which really matter:

    Q) Do they point out the source of their article – Hamas – is a terrorist organisation.
    A) Nope. Even worse than that, they have conjured up the phrase ‘Gaza MoH’ (Gaza Ministry of Health) which they now use to avoid mentioning hamas as much as possible.

    Q) Do they point out that the deaths are occurring because Hamas are fighting from within the civilian population. From hospitals, UN school and UN refugee camps.
    A) Nope.

    So it’s another worthless article because it avoids all the serious issues behind it.

    And I see the initial terrorist massacre has been reduced to:
    ‘The war began when thousands of Hamas fighters stormed into southern Israel on 7 October, killing about 1,200 people and seizing 253 hostages, according to Israeli tallies.’
    ‘according to Israeli tallies’ is there to sow some doubt that the figure are true when it’s been the most open investigation of all.

      There also seems to be plenty of ‘victims ‘ coming forward after couzens was convicted of murder ….

    Oops – the guardian publishes a piece about 1000 prosecutions for no TV licence each week …. It’s behind a pay wall but it would be nice to see what the BBC newspaper says about itself …

    “Human Rights Groups Criticise Rishi Sunak for comments about Mob Rule”

    Why to these minority groups who are offended always get mentioned by the BBC .. what about the Millions upon Millions who 100% agree with Sunak ?

    They really are just a Social Justice Media outlet.

    “Wayne Couzens should never have been allowed to join the police and chances to stop him were repeatedly missed, damning inquiry finds

    Wayne Couzens sexually assaulted a child, tried to kidnap a woman at knifepoint and was reported to police eight times for exposing himself in the years before he kidnapped, raped and murdered Sarah Everard, a damning inquiry found today.

    Three different police forces ‘could and should’ have stopped Couzens from getting a job as an officer, she said, as she identified a catalogue of failings in how he was recruited and vetted, and how allegations against him were investigated.

    Her Inquiry found evidence that Couzens allegedly committed a very serious sexual assault against a child, described as barely in her teens, before his policing career even started – alongside four other incidents of sexual offending that were not reported.

    the inquiry laid bare a history of alleged sexual offending dating back nearly 20 years before the off-duty armed Metropolitan Police officer abducted Miss Everard in March 2021.

    According to the report, over the last two years the inquiry uncovered evidence Couzens was accused of a string of other incidents of sexual abuse, including a ‘very serious sexual assault of a child barely into her teens’.”

      Why is there a great fuss and long report about Couzens ?

      The meme at the time from the left/ BBC was that it was ALL men committing murder against women ?

    I see the left are going full-on US Dirty Dem tactics…


    They have involved the police in the Lee Anderson nonsense, knowing that swathes of police bigwigs and rank and file are outright left-wing.

    Next it will be the Public Prosecuter.

    It’s all much like the witch finder ducking stool trials of the Middle Ages.

    This is the most dangerous trend away from true and open democracy I can imagine and needs to be stopped dead.

    “I may not agree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it to the death”

    Someone wise once said.

    This year has been called the biggest election year in history. More than four billion people around the world – a majority of the global population – will go to the polls in national and regional elections from the US and Brazil to India and Korea.

    One big factor in many of those elections will be resurgent populist politicians, mostly on the right, frequently with an authoritarian impulse. And one stance almost universal among populist leaders is a strong opposition to net zero policies.


    Remind me, which publication is currently negotiating payments for disinformation?

      The demise of Vice and BuzzFeed: what happened to millennial media?
      Feb 29 2024 •
      Vice and BuzzFeed were once at the forefront of the digital media revolution—Vice alone was once valued at nearly double the New York Times! But now, both firms have shut their news operations

      BBC were big on them too Al.

      But seems few others were.

    It’s a little frustrating hearing the supposed Tories, some of the media and some of this platform saying that – ‘a vote for REFORM is a vote for labour, a vote wasted, hardly any REFORM members standing will get a seat’.

    Don’t they yet realise that the Tories are a left of centre party now, look what they have delivered. Granted even if the Tories pulled in more votes than current expectations it would mean they will become emboldened to continue with little change for us the electorate, (high taxes, no control of immigration, net zero, woke policies, NHS under-performing, etc). It would be the same-old-same-old despite what they put in a manifesto (= toilet paper worth). If the ‘Tories’ get trounced at election time, and I believe they will, it may wake them up a little, it will embolden REFORM and right-wing policies to become more attractive with the country once labour have failed in office. This may be sooner than many think, before a second election follows this 2024 election. Currently with our 2-party state we can vote for one party that is far-left and the other that is far-far left. Both are globalist and will sell out to global institutions (WEF, WHO, EU, etc) whether we are in the EU or not. Make a stand and vote REFORM for the possibility of a different direction or keep voting for no real change.

    So, it turns out Google AI is erasing white folk and….

    Plans include trialling Gen AI to reformat existing content that widens its appeal, and using it to help teams find and create new forms of content more quickly

    Just a coincidence.

    three principles:

    always act in the best interests of the public
    always prioritise talent and creativity
    always be open and transparent with audiences when using AI to support content-making

    All of which are BBC core strengths. Not.
