Weekend 30th March 2024

The forces of darkness – such as the BBC – do their best to expunge Easter . They won’t win . They are Damned . Refuse to pay your TV Licence . …

As with many corrupt practices – Easter is used to ‘bury’ bad things – such as a dodgy PM giving gongs for money – or the BBC publishing a 96 page ‘annual plan’ which can find free on the internet . Apparently there are going to be ‘cut backs ‘. So a bit of Good News . Happy Easter .

    First for Easter. 🙂

    As I understand it the Director-General of the BBC, Tim Davie, is welcoming the views of the public on the TV Licence Fee so please make your views known to him. If you have little or nothing to do over the Easter weekend, it may be a good time for both letter writing to the D-G AND cancelling your TV Licence as Fed suggests.


    • MarkyMark says:

      Omission is the greatest lie – not all views will be made available.


      • Up2snuff says:

        MM, sure. If you have made your views known to the BBC via the D-G, and made it clear what you wish for the BBC and the LF, the BBC will get an overwhelming sense of the will of the people.

    I’ve had a thought about how evil Smarmer might be.
    Throughout the Covid crisis, Smarmer pressed and pressed for longer, more and more intensive lockdowns, aided and abetted by the BBC of course. It may of course been an entirely innocent concern for public health of course but had effects, some of which are entirely predictable but maybe there was more to it. His call for more lockdowns put him forward as a credible opposition to Johnson and the Government, completely obvious. However it did play to the public sector Unions and members, possibly less obvious. What might be a more Machiavellian objective though is that Smarmer would know the lockdowns would be damaging to the economy, more lockdowns even more damaging of course. The bonus then is the economic damage would destroy the the Tory election prospects. The BBC played their part .


    • Kaiser says:

      worryingly from something I saw today apparently only 21% of the british public are anti-lockdown , even now in retrospect

      the ability to put two and two together seems beyond most of the population

      they can hardly blame the torys for for something they are massively behind.


      • Flotsam says:

        The 80% that approve of lockdowns consist of salaried public sector workers who got paid for staying at home and those that were furloughed. The remaining 20% will be those with businesses and those who realised what a disaster it was going to be.


        • atlas_shrugged says:

          Spot on Flotsam

          During lockup my daughter spent a year abroad with her languages studies. She was giving free tutorials on zoom to A-level pupils back in the uK. These pupils were getting no other education whatsoever. Their teachers were home on full pay.

          As soon as lockup finished the teachers were straight out on strike.

          The teachers in independent schools by contrast had to immediately switch to online teaching. This was difficult for teachers who had no prior online training.


      • tarien says:

        Most of the public from my point of view are just fast asleep, have no conception of what is coming just around the corner-in fact it has already begun. Surreptitiously the powers in our government together with the Globalists are taking away our freedoms, reducing any objections we may have to many of the preposterous acts and policies being spewed out to facilitate control of the populace. Disagreement will not be tolerated!

    • Jeff says:

      Now come on Flotsam, you don’t believe Starmer was really concerned about public health any more than I do. Of course it was a trap…

      Labour’s ever reliable henchmen at the BBC and Sky played their parts well. Did they ever ask, “Why are you locking us down…what’s the economic, social and collateral health damage going to be?” No, of course they didn’t. They knew what would happen, even if the oaf in Number 10 didn’t.

      They asked, “Why didn’t you lock us down earlier, harder and longer?”. “Nichola Sturgeon (who was then regarded as a sort of authoritarian saint) won’t allow the Scots beyond their front doors. Are you killing people?” And the gormless sap fell for it…

      However, although this was quite clearly a trap, nobody actually forced the lumbering lump, Boris, into the trap. He was cajoled by the media and encouraged by ghastly, self-serving little turds like Matt Hancock. He could have done the brave and right thing, but…

      Bunter went in headfirst of his own volition.

      And now, here we are.

      Absolutely f@cked…

    The origin of Easter is one clouded in ancient history but it gives rise to a question as to how much early Christianity in England influenced the early Church. Bede suggests Easter originates from a pagan fertility godess called Eostre or Eostrae so how did some obscure English pagan godess come to be the name of the major Christian festival known as Easter all over the world.

    We celebrate the return of hens laying eggs by the Easter eggs, they used to be blown and painted before chocolate arrived, and also the cows started giving milk once again.

    The big difference here is that Christianity being a true religion overwhelms and absorbs the pagan into itself, whereas the false diabolical Islam cannot abide its pagan past and despite it being in its holy books cannot believe or accept it as such.

    Today we reflect on the crucifixion. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. he died so we might live.

    The Now Show ( radio 4 noon Saturday, 6.30pm Friday ) was on top form today – if you like silly adolescent humour .

    Donald Trumps back , so they think they’ve got material . The fact that there’s been a senile halfwit running America down for the last three years has past them by .


  5. Nibor says:

    Of the three evils which will destroy the West ( wokeness , islamofacism , criminality) the woke people are the stupidest .
    The other two will use the woke fools , but the woke fools can’t use them .
    For example the woke mugs will march with the Islamofascists , but the Islamofascists won’t change , they’ll still throw gays off tall buildings .
    The woke dopes will try to keep criminals out of jail , but the criminals won’t reform , they’ll still murder a woke dope or use their children to carry drugs .

    Woke people are idiots.


    • Thoughtful says:

      Alas you have failed to identify the overiding evil which controls all three of these, Socialism.

      Before any of these lessor demons can have any effect the economy will crash so badly that civil unrest will erupt. In America the result is probably a victory for the right, not so in Britain where the forces of evil are more strong and Marxism is now unfortunately a reality for most even if they don’t realise it.


      • Doublethinker says:

        I think that globalisation or rather hyperglobalisation seduced both left , ie Blair , Clinton and right, Tories and Republicans . Globalisation has caused them to fuse together and now you can’t get a cigarette paper between them.
        Brexit and the Trump agenda were an anathema to the international rules based order , which the globalist have created and made sure that it works in their best interests, hence their fierce resistance and their determination to make sure that ordinary people never get the chance to upset the apple cart again.


    • Zelazek says:


      The rise of mass stupidity is puzzling and exasperating.

      I don’t know whether the majority of the population were always stupid and the internet has just made painfully visible what was always there, or whether there has actually been a real change in people’s capacity to apprehend the truth.

      I suspect the latter. We lead lives today much more removed from nature and the harshness of life. Luxury can protect us from reality. You don’t have to live your life by the rules of logic if you don’t feel like it anymore.

      Take the statement, “Some men menstruate.” The people who affirm it never articulate the whole truth about that statement. Which is that some women – who think they are men – menstruate. However, men – who think they are women – don’t menstruate.

      Which proves the statement is false and that thinking you are something doesn’t make it so. Pretending that personal fantasies trump biological realities is childish. Anyone with a logical, adult brain should be able to see that. The fact that millions don’t makes me despair.

        Zelatek – I think kids should have to experience roughing it – no running water – no flush loos no electricity – no heating – Definately no wi fi …. If only for a couple of days ….

        … 95% will moan and learn nothing – but the 5% will value it ….
        I think the population has always been gullible – for instance we were stupid enough to expect a conservative government and got an incompetent red one –

        – it goes back to key failure – green crap – the 1930s – WW1 – just in the last 100 years or so … and people can’t handle / anslyse – prioritise the information they are receiving ….

        … and sometimes I do wonder what value there is in knowing a lot of stuff which I cannot do anything at all about …

        BTW – I’d also try to get kids to hunt for food – to kill – prepare – cook and eat … doing such a thing would help with ‘values ‘ and not taking so much for granted …

        .. in the event of a break down of ‘civilisation ‘ a lot of people would go under very very quickly as self reliance has been bred out …

    • JohnC says:

      Anyone who defends the Palestinians should be boycotted as terrorist supporters.

      It’s Hamas who do not want a ceasefire. They don’t care one bit how many civilians die. Why are none of these racists at the BBC telling us that ?.


  8. JohnC says:

    Moscow concert massacre and the Tajik connection

    So the BBC have sent their ‘reporter’ Sohrab Zia to the place the Muslims who did the terrorist attack came from. Sohrab does a lot of reports from Tajikistan and ‘Sohrab’ is a Muslim name so we can safely say we have another case of BBC Muslims reporting on terrorist Muslims who murdered infidels. Right. So no bias there.

    The first elephant in this room is that like Gaza, only a Muslim can do it. Because an infidel would be in danger if they tried to. That alone deserves to be in the article. But it isn’t because it’s the BBC and the entire point of this article is meant to be ‘Muslims good, Russia bad’.

    We start with:
    ‘In Loyob, they do not believe anyone from their village was capable of taking part in the jihadist massacre at Moscow’s Crocus City Hall.’
    Who are ‘they’ Sohrab ?. The other Muslims ?. Like those the BBC interviews in Gaza who are all specially selected or total fakes ?.

    What is interesting though is how he makes exactly the same statement as the other clone did:

    ‘All four suspected attackers showed signs of torture when they appeared in court, raising serious questions about the reliability of their testimony.’

    With this and Gaza, it has become clear to me that a select group people at the BBC are writing down narratives for all these stories then the clones are shaping their reports to follow them. These include specific phrases and wordings which I’m sure are carefully chosen to be the right ones for lobbying the UN etc. I also expect they will also specify things which are NOT to be mentioned. Like details of what Hamas are doing.

    What I find so chilling about this is that they are back to the old politicial commissars. A select group of people are defining what exactly is to be the news and what isn’t, then it’s being fed out to the ‘journalists’ who have been told to regurgitate the official propaganda while adding fluff and as much empathy as possible around the edges.

    And it explains why they are using all these useless clones to do it.Any serious journalist with proper ethics would not be so strictly constrained.

    Nothing on the satanic bbc news front page regarding our religion and holy week.

    I’ll leave the press review to AsIseet, with promotion of a new world war with the Zelensky Primark Churchill and of course never forgetting Kate Garroway as the only berieved female in the country, overlooking what a nasty individual her spouse was.

    So, here is quite possibly the oldest room in the country in a church nearby, at least 900 years old.



    • StewGreen says:

      900 years old is not the oldest room
      cos there are Bronze age rooms 3,700 years old
      Then Roman buildings about 1,800
      .. and older rooms in caves from prehistory


  12. Zephir says:

    And from another church nearby, some grafitti about the black death and a view of old St Pauls before the great fire in London.

  14. Zephir says:

    it translates to, “1350 Miserable, wild, distracted 1350 / The dregs of the mob alone survive to witness.” There’s also a reference to a great storm that occurred in 1361, which supposedly cleared away any lingering remnants of the bubonic plague.

    Further graffiti, again written in Latin, can also be spotted on the pillars in the nave. One of the entries rather rudely criticizes the quality of the building’s construction, saying, “The corners are not jointed correctly—I spit.” Another insults a woman named Barbara, calling her, “the daughter of a barbarian.” Just above it is another line of text, simply claiming that, “the Archdeacon is an ass.”

    Lets “review” it and chuck the word “sustainable?” into the mix….that’ll fox them

    “Following from the Green Belt Review of November 2013, the Stage 2 Review assesses Green Belt sites identified by the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment and the Gypsy and Traveller Land Availability Assessment with the potential to contribute to a sustainable pattern of development. In 2016 a further ten Green Belt sites were assessed, using the same methodology, following their identification in the Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment as sites with a potential to contribute to a sustainable pattern of development.”

      The president was just silly when he started ranting about the damage done to the environment by the industrial revolution. That whole system, started primarily in Britan, has saved more lives than anything in the history of humankind.

      People just see factory chimneys spewing smoke, but industrialisation gave rise to modern civilisation. Without the genius of those early engineers what do you think the world would look like today? It was never a Garden of Eden.

      We should never fall into the trap of using the language of silly uninformed little girls like Greta and her fellow travellers. We should celebrate oil and coal and all they’ve done for us. Don’t Just Stop Oil.

    “Corruption of Public Officials in Africa – A Comparative Study in Criminal Law
    NCJ Number
    H Sarassoro
    Date Published
    234 pages
    The study examines the causes of corruption among officials in the emerging African countries and means of preventing this evil, as well as the countries’ legal response to corruption of officials.
    Official corruption has been widespread in new African countries in the postcolonial period and has contributed considerably to political instability, public distrust of the government, and economic reverses and failure to attract foreign capital. Corruption causes can be categorized according to the status of corrupt officials, i.e., petty officials and top-level officials. Petty officials are influenced by problems arising from the emergence of new societies and by traditional social structures such as an extended family system encouraging parasitism. Major corruption results from abuse of powers and privileges of high office. Typically, minor corrupt officials are tried and prosecuted, while corrupt officials in high office remain untouchable. Likewise, preventive efforts such as attitude modification through public information campaigns, general education, and improvement of the professionals’ circumstances affect petty corrupt officials, but do not curb major vice. Effective control of corruption is only possible through organizations independent of the government and through strict laws to enforce principles of good conduct at high government levels, including controls on foreign bank accounts. Freedom of the press is essential for exposure of corruption. Corruption laws vary widely, as a comparison of laws in the Ivory Coast, Mali, Ghana, and Zaire illustrate. Furthermore, legal approaches to the problem differ between democratic and socialist countries. In general, however, African anti-corruption laws are ineffective because top officials fail to enforce them from lack of authority or from fear of international repercussions. Reduction of corruption is to be achieved through prevention of dishonest acts, through careful supervision by high officials in general, and through good examples rather than through application of Draconian repressive measures. “

    “South Sudan: Corruption and anti-corruption

    After a protracted conflict and a period of self-rule from 2005, South Sudan is now the world’s most recent sovereign country. The young state faces considerable governance challenges; it regularly ranks at or near the bottom of international corruption indices. Corruption is systemic across all levels of government and pervades nearly every economic sector, and perpetrators enjoy widespread impunity. As such, it takes a heavy toll on the populace by diverting the wealth from the country’s extensive oil reserves into private pockets instead of public service provision or gross fixed capital formation. This kleptocratic dynamic is embodied in scandals such as the Cash Grab and Dura Saga scandals. The international community has called on the South Sudanese government to take stronger action to tackle corruption. However, progress has been slow, and corruption remains a major challenge for South Sudan’s future development.”

    Forgive my cynicism, but if the BBC tells me a situation is not terror related, I immediately assume it’s terror related.

    -at a nightclub
    -the hostage-taker wore a balaclava
    -threatened to blow himself up
    -Dutch anti-terror and counter-explosive units activated
    -area evacuated and trains cancelled, etc etc.
    -we’re in Ramadan Bombathon period
    -the suspect had a black backpack and several knives with him…

    Sound like more than just a merry prankster to me.
    And if I’m wrong, it’s the BBC’s fault for having lied so much in the past.

      Sounds terrifying to me.

      Recommendation 12 of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry was that a racist incident is “any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person”.

      By the same logic:

      A terrorist incident is “any incident which is perceived to be terrorism by the victim or any other person or described by the BBC as not terror related

    The BBC is to ‘double down’ on spreading lies, propaganda, censorship, misinformation, disinformation and malinformation.

    The BBC director general plans to “double-down” on its large propaganda and censorship operator, Verify, and to deploy it globally using the Trusted News Initiative, so as to enforce trust in the BBC, using propaganda and censorship.

    “We will double-down on multi-media brands like BBC Verify and deploy it globally,” said Mr. Davie.

    David Keighley, managing director of News-watch, which has been tracking BBC bias for 25 years, said that the expansion of Verify is one of “the most sinister developments to date.”

    The BBC will double down on propaganda supporting the EU, Lies, Immigration, Hamas, Net Zero and Big Pharma: https://www.theepochtimes.com/world/former-news-producer-bbc-doubling-down-on-fact-checking-operations-is-chilling-5616202
