    X -Files, biting and scratching, spitting and gouging, ding-dong cat fight edition

    It’s not often that we see our chattterati class do a mea culpa

    But as luck would have it we do have a couple of such instances to report this morning

    Sarah Vine Why I apologise to Kate – that’s the former La Gove doing a grovelling penance in her Daily Mail column for having demanded Kate come clean over photoshopgate

    So much for the tabloid stuff of tomorrow’s fish ‘n’ chip papers

    To weightier matters

    Isabella Wallersteiner I was naive to be pro-immigration… I come from a family of immigrants. I will always be in favour of controlled immigration. But I was wrong to argue for a more liberal approach to vetting and security. Nor did I consider the impact on community cohesion (Sunday Telegraph)

    Who she…? Formerly, standard issue wet Tory, Remainer, social liberal, selling England by the pound, establishment-friendly, I bought the t-shirt feminist, of course: Bored of being called a fake Tory. I’m socially liberal, I believe Brexit was a mistake & I am pro-immigration. I also believe in low tax, a small state, individualism & free enterprise. If someone like me feels the Conservative Party no longer represents them, it ceases to exist (Our Bella on X – formerly Twitter, May 2023); Biological men should not be able to compete in women’s sport at any level… we need to fix the Equality Act to ensure that sex means biological sex and so protect women’s grassroots sport – and presumably for no other reason she can think of – our Bella there on X, Ukraine flag in her bio – you get the picture.

    So how come this sudden Damascene conversion over the immigration issue, of all things, you may ask?

    Well, coincidence ain’t causation, as we all know.

    But our Ms Wallersteiner has of late attracted the ire of a certain tendency resident in our land with a particular bee in their bonnet: If you saw Bella in the tube or in a restaurant, you wouldn’t know she was a genocide supporting extremist. But she is a rabid genocide supporter, who couldn’t care less how many Palestinian babies, women and men are indiscriminately killed by Israel as they pursue their lust for revenge… “genocide barbie” should be reported to the Prevent Programme here in the UK, where extremists are taken in so they can mend their extremist ways. (one Maree Campbell oozes vitriol on The Curated Edit, 31 October, 2023)

    Maree Campbell, who she…?

    Anti-Zionist-Not Antisemite of the Day: Maree Campbell… based on London, UK, who seems to use her LinkedIn primarily to disseminate hate against Israel. Such is her hatred for the Jewish state, she will take Zionist quotes and invert them to bash us (A debut hereabouts for Israellycool, ‘fighting hatred towards Jews and the Jewish state, while providing analysis and commentary’, January 2023) – Arabic script in her X bio, by the way. Don’t ask me to decypher but it makes a change from the usual Pally banner

    So in the blue (and yellow) corner we have Bella “genocide Barbie” versus… in the red, green, white and black corner Maree “Not-antisemite of the Day” – lightweight championship all-girl unsafe space bout

    Ladies & gentlemen… we have a biting and scratching, spitting and gouging, ding-dong cat fight on our hands!

    In all seriousness, it’s no wonder our Bella “genocide barbie” has apparently come over somewhat to our side on the migration issue, eh?

    If ever there were a moment to call for a calm down dear surely it’s now: ‘I get into trouble from time to time’ Gillian Anderson on playing famous women – and speaking her mind (Observer) – for the teenagers – that’s the actress who played Dana Scully in days of yore on the X-Files – TV Sci-Fi nerd staple totty of a calibre unheard of since Gene Roddenberry ordained miniskirts as uniform issue for the dames aboard the Starship Enterprize

    But on a Sunday when at least one new convert has seen the light – there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. (Luke 15:7 New International Version)

    Not so the Guardian on Sunday better known as The Observer: Revealed: the deadly tactics used to keep migrants from our shores… Video shows French police ramming boats – Legion d’honneur and a big kiss on both cheeks for Les Braves of the Gendarmerie – I think most of we British would agree

    Listening to yet more of the economics on line this morning I came across the crack up boom theory by Ludwig Von Mise of the Austrian school of economics.

    Von Mise postulated his theory back in the 1920s when Austria went through a period similar to but not as bad as the German hyper inflation, and it is being suggested now that America is going to experience something similar unless drastic action is taken.

    This is supportive of the precious metals and other commodities investment model, unpopular for many years as the stock market has run wild. Silver is now the most touted investment metal but thanks to incompetent UK government investment grade silver carries VAT at 20% so any gain has to first overcome that before profit is realised.


    ” What Is a Crack-Up Boom?

    A crack-up boom is an economic crisis that involves a recession in the real economy and a collapse of the monetary system due to continual credit expansion and resulting in unsustainable, rapid price increases. This concept of a crack-up boom was developed by Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises as a part of the Austrian business cycle theory (ABCT).

    Mises Institute. “Understanding the Austrian Theory of the Business Cycle.” Accessed Oct. 6, 2021.

    The crack-up boom is characterized by two key features:
    1) excessively expansionary monetary policy that, in addition to the normal consequences described in ABCT, leads to out-of-control inflation expectations and
    2) a resulting bout of hyperinflation which ends in the abandonment of the currency by market participants and a simultaneous recession or depression.

      Gore’s climate film has scientific errors – judge
      This article is more than 16 years old
      · Court rules documentary can be shown in schools
      · Presentation is ‘broadly accurate’ but lacks balance
      David Adam, environment correspondent
      Thu 11 Oct 2007 15.28 BST
      Al Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth, was yesterday criticised by a high court judge who highlighted what he said were “nine scientific errors” in the film.


      The judge ruled that the film can still be shown in schools, as part of a climate change resources pack, but only if it is accompanied by fresh guidance notes to balance Mr Gore’s “one-sided” views.

    I don’t know whether anyone posted here on 12 March, but apparently the BBC was heading its news with an item about the IDF torturing and abusing doctors in Gaza. The Daily Mail today reports that 6 out of 8 of the doctors regularly post anti-Semitic slurs on social media. Condemnation of Israel was ‘swift’ and included David Cameron.

    The BBC chose not to verify these doctors’ statements – presumably they thought that doctors wouldn’t lie? But the anti-Israel propaganda pumped out by the BBC is perhaps why the anti-Semitism in this country grows.

      • harry142857 says:

        All day long on March 12, the BBC led its radio and TV bulletins with a shocking report from Gaza in which hospital medics described being tortured and abused by Israeli forces.
        Even for a conflict overladen with grim testimony and emotive images, this was highly charged material, the kind that could inflame communities in Britain.
        What was being alleged, after all, blatantly contravened the fundamental principle that hospitals – in this case the Nasser hospital in the city of Khan Yunis – should be protected in wartime.

        International condemnation was swift, with Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron among those demanding an explanation from Israel.

        The BBC has faced accusations of anti-Israel-bias and of fuelling anti-Semitism, so it was anxious to demonstrate that it went to considerable lengths to corroborate evidence. No doubt it was reassured that the claims came from doctors. Surely reliable witnesses?

        But a Mail on Sunday investigation has uncovered some disturbing truths about six of the eight medics interviewed – evidence that should, at the very least, have given BBC news executives pause for thought as they rolled out their scoop with dramatic fanfare.

        Astonishingly, all six have repeatedly spouted anti-Semitic slurs on social media, with posts ranging from the provocative and inflammatory to the downright obscene.

        Last night, our findings prompted demands for an independent inquiry into the BBC report. A peer said the corporation was being ‘led by its nose by Hamas’.

        In one post, Dr Amira Al-Assouli (misspelled on the BBC caption), whose account of being targeted by Israeli gunfire was at the forefront of the BBC’s coverage, plainly supports a Hamas rocket attack on Israel.

        ‘O Lord, turn every Palestinian missile into a Zionist casualty, and turn every casualty into a thousand families that leave our homeland,’ she wrote.

        In another she said: ‘Lord protect our mujahideen [jihadi fighters] and support them with your angels and kill the Jews.’
        the day of the October 7 attacks, the doctor posted a photo of a dead man, Fayez Saeed Al-Assouli, later accused on social media of taking part in the incursion. Dr Al-Assouli, a volunteer at Nasser hospital, describes him as ‘the first martyr of our family’.

        Another doctor, Hatem Raba, wrote on Facebook: ‘May Allah guide the missiles of Palestine’s mujahideen.’
        Elsewhere he praised a terrorist who blew up a bus killing 38 Israeli civilians – 13 of them children – in 1978 as a ‘legend’ and a ‘martyr’.

        The hospital’s general manager Atef Al-Hout (also misspelled on the BBC caption) – who told the BBC that Israel Defence Forces (IDF) soldiers detained medics and forced them to kneel with their hands behind their heads for hours – shared his colleagues’ admiration of Hamas.

        ‘Jerusalem and Gaza are in the camp of resistance. May Allah guide your missiles,’ he wrote in 2021 after a Hamas rocket blitz on Israel.

        Last night, Jewish Tory MP Andrew Percy told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The BBC seemingly doesn’t seem to care that it keeps casually giving airtime to people who openly support the murder and assault of innocent civilians through terrorism.
        The BBC seems unable to appreciate that Hamas and their terrorist network have infiltrated every aspect of life in Gaza, even teachers and medical professionals, some of whom helped facilitate the October 7 attacks and hostage-taking.

        ‘There must be a full independent inquiry undertaken of the BBC’s failure to uphold impartiality on this issue.

        Their coverage is fuelling the hate on our streets and it is fuelling anti-Semitism. They must be held to account.’

        Like other major news organisations, the BBC relies largely on Arabic journalists on the ground in Gaza. Testimony and footage used in the Nasser hospital report was scrutinised by the newly launched fact-check unit BBC Verify.

        But last week the MoS revealed that two journalists who worked on the report, Soha Ibrahim and Marie-Jose Al Azzi, had ‘liked’ posts celebrating attacks on Israel.

        Days later, BBC director-general Tim Davie was questioned by the Commons culture select committee about our story and the perception of bias in BBC coverage.

        He called some of the tweets ‘unacceptable’ and promised to take action. Last year the corporation launched an investigation into claims its journalists appeared to celebrate the October 7 terror attacks on social media.

        Dr Al-Assouli’s Facebook account includes up to 20 posts celebrating Israelis being killed in terror attacks or making anti-Semitic remarks.

        Yet she emerges from the BBC report in heroic fashion, having ‘risked her life’ to dart out of the hospital, amid echoing gunfire, to reach an injured man, her daring mission captured in a viral online video.

        She told the BBC that the injured man was stretchered into hospital under the ‘direct gunfire of the occupation forces’.

        This is the same Dr Al-Assouli who in 2014 warned Zionists that ‘you’ll die as cowards at the hands of our children’, adding: ‘And we promise you, for every martyr [killed], a thousand mujahideen will be born, and our land will spit out your bodies and you will wander the Earth as you had before…’

        The BBC also reported claims that the IDF detained and beat Palestinian medics during the operation at the Nasser hospital on February 15.
        Ahmed Abu Sabha, a doctor at the site, described being held for a week in detention, where, he said, muzzled dogs were set upon him and his hand was broken by an Israeli soldier.

        But in May 2021, Dr Sabha’s Facebook account shared what appeared to be a pro-Hamas music video with the lyrics: ‘The Jew defiled Jerusalem, ruled with tyranny, and oppressed… O mighty Gaza, the shelling is despicable, we will avenge the heroic martyrs a million-fold.’

        Meanwhile Dr Khaled Serr, who told the BBC how IDF troops shot civilians during the raid on the hospital, previously praised Hamas strikes on Israel that killed seven civilians. In a 2021 post on X, formerly Twitter, he wrote: ‘Just as you dazzled me with your missile capabilities, we ask God to grant you victory, steadfastness and creativity on the battlefield.’

        Dr Mohammed Harara, who told the BBC how people who tried to rescue injured people in the hospital complex were being directly targeted, wrote in a 2015 Facebook post: ‘Allah, save our Al-Aqsa from the filth of the Jews

        The horrifying social media accounts were unearthed by anti-Semitism researcher David Collier and investigated by the Arabic department of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA), a media monitoring group.

        A CAMERA spokesman said: ‘With BBC reporters and BBC Verify fact-checkers alike either missing or deeming as irrelevant their eyewitnesses’ support for murdering Israel’s Jewish civilians, the journalistic failure here is multi-layered.

        ‘If the BBC cannot deliver the kind of quality journalism the British public deserves in exchange for its licence-fee payments, this is a matter for their representatives to inquire and ultimately fix.

        ‘Until they do, perhaps it is time for the UK Government to stop treating BBC Arabic reporters as a trustworthy news source.’

        The IDF raid on the hospital followed intelligence indicating that it was shielding Hamas operatives. They also said Israeli hostages taken by Hamas on October 7 had been held there – and some of the hostages themselves have publicly said they were kept at Nasser. Hamas has denied that its fighters operate inside medical facilities.

        But the IDF said it had detained 200 terrorists and ‘suspects in terrorist activities’ and found ‘large quantities of weapons’ and boxes of sealed medicines intended for Israeli hostages during its raid on the hospital in Khan Yunis.

        It insisted its operation at the hospital was run in a ‘precise and focused manner, creating minimal damage to the hospital’s ongoing activity, and without harming the patients or the medical staff’.

        The BBC said it supplied details of the allegations to the IDF but said it did not respond directly to questions about these accounts, or deny claims of mistreatment. But the IDF denied that medical staff were harmed during its operation, adding that ‘any abuse of detainees is contrary to IDF orders and is strictly prohibited’.

        Last night, politicians called for an investigation into the BBC’s reporting. Theresa Villiers, Tory MP for Chipping Barnet, said: ‘It is shocking our national broadcaster is seemingly basing its reports on the accounts of people who have praised terrorist violence against innocent Israeli citizens.’
        She added: ‘The BBC purports to hold itself to high standards for the quality and impartiality of its reporting. It has fallen far short of these standards in this instance, and there needs to be a thorough investigation. Greater care needs to be taken when reporting on such divisive and emotive issues as the Gaza war.’
        Lord Pickles, special envoy for Post-Holocaust issues, said: ‘There seems to be a complete failure of due diligence.

        ‘Over the decades we have relied on the BBC to be fair and impartial. But the last few weeks have shown us the BBC’s greatness is in its past and it’s falling way short of the standards we have grown to expect. We now need to know how the once great BBC is being led by its nose by Hamas.’
        Sir Michael Ellis, the former Attorney General and a Tory MP, who has accused the BBC’s ‘biased’ coverage of the war of contributing to record levels of intimidation and attacks on British Jews, said: ‘The licence-fee payers can be grateful to The Mail on Sunday for exposing yet further evidence of an appalling state of bias at the BBC.

        ‘The journalistic standards at the BBC have clearly fallen to a shocking new low and this is more evidence of an endemic anti-Israel bias at the corporation.

        ‘How can BBC Verify justify its continued existence under that name, in light of what has been uncovered by The Mail on Sunday?’

        A BBC spokesman said: ‘We stand by our journalism. Those who have read our story will know the BBC has been transparent in telling audiences where and how information is corroborated and attributed, and where this has not been possible.
        ‘We have provided multiple first-hand accounts, named independent sources, shared visual evidence and included rights of reply throughout, working to the highest standards of journalism.’

      How much do pensioners get in Surrey?
      On the old second class pension they can be getting around £8-9k and a bit.
      If people there have trouble living on £100k how do all the pensioners exist. Do they all own £600k houses (what’s the council tax on them)

      Further up north in Airstrip One it’s cheaper to live yet we have lots of poor people here on the same pension as those in Hunt’s Surrey.

    Oh black people regarding your reparation:

    Here’s your receipt:

    “Slave owners were paid approximately £20 million in compensation in more than 40,000 awards for enslaved people freed in the colonies of the Caribbean, Mauritius and the Cape of Good Hope, according to a government census that named all owners as of 1 August 1834.[3] This represented around 40 per cent of the British Treasury’s annual spending budget, and has been calculated as equivalent to around £16.5bn in today’s terms. Approximately half went to absentee landlords in the UK, while the rest went to slave-owners in Africa and the West Indies. The largest total amount paid in compensation was to Sir John Gladstone, 1st Baronet, father of prime minister William Gladstone, who was paid £106,769 (enough to purchase goods that would cost about £10.3m in 2021, or labour worth about £95m at 2021 prices)[4] in compensation for losing his 2,508 slaves used across nine plantations.[5]

    Payments of the bonds to the descendants of creditors was only finalised in 2015 when the British Government decided to modernise the gilt portfolio by redeeming all remaining undated gilts. The long gap between this money being borrowed and the final repayment of any portion that may still have been outstanding was due to the type of financial instrument that was used, rather than the amount of money borrowed.[6]

    British historian Nicholas Draper, in his book The Price of Emancipation: Slave-Ownership, Compensation and British Society at the End of Slavery, states that “Nathan Rothschild and his brother-in-law Moses Montefiore led a syndicate underwriting the issue of three new series of securities to raise £15 million: we don’t know how much they distributed or sub-underwrote. A further £5 million was paid out directly in government stock”.[7]

    ‘300 Million’ has come to the end of its series on R4, thankfully. Presented by Kavita Puri it was just from beginning to end a thinly-veiled attack on Winston Churchill to brand him as a racist for allowing the Bengal Famine.

    There was absolutely no mention of the millions in Germany or Russia or Japan who were starving or the struggle to feed people in the UK with rationing in force. The huge irony of today’s episode is that Kavita let slip that in 1974 one million starved to death in the Bangladhesh War of Independence with Pakistan. I am sure that Kavita would like to lay that at Britain’s door as well for ‘mishandling’ Indian Independence.

    Yet another huge irony was that Kavita Puri wanted a visa to go to India to talk to Bengal Famine survivors but the Indian Government refused to give her a visa. Looks like all the nasty things that the BBC have said about Prime Minister Modi have come back to haunt the BBC.
