Midweek 24th April 2024

The BBC has demonstrated its ‘anti English bias clearly today . St George’s’ day ? Really ? Compare with the other nations of the UK ….. clearly the BBC hates England – much prefers minority groups and religions – to the Traditions of the English . And you are still paying your licence fee ? Surely not …..

    Well I have just the thing for you!

    The International Monetary Fund “Fiscal Policy in the Great Election Year”


    Apparantly over 80 countries will hold elections this year, and there is the inevitable temptation to ‘bribe’ their electorate with government borrowing.

    Bidens enormous and unsustainable US Debt comes in for particular criticism and warnings to stop defecit spending altogether !

    By the end of this year debt servicing is going to be more than Defence and Medicare, and if it isn’t reined in, it will be the number one expense and approaching 6% of GDP,

    Daily Mail

    A supposedly right wing newspaper.

    ‘England till I die!’ Far-right crowd clash Police on St George’s Day

    Police clash with St George’s Day protesters chanting ‘England till I die’ near the Cenotaph, joined by far-right groups and football hooligans from across the UK.’

    What a kick in the face to every Englishman and woman. They were not football hooligans nor far right.

    So, England till I die is a bad song but From the river too the sea is ok.

    I will no longer read the Daily Mail.

    As it stands today, if ever there is a war which seems increasingly likely, I’ll tell my sons ‘not to fight as your country doesn’t like the English, and you are English.’

    They won’t like my comment as they have been brought up to feel a sense of pride in their country but that is what i will tell them.


    • Thoughtful says:

      It really is a shameful Marxist Tory style article and the comments bear that out.


    • Deborah says:

      So much is behind the paywall now in the Daily Mail, scarcely worth going to the web site.


      • Scroblene says:

        Their irritating, repeptitive obsession with two ex royals who ran away from they British patriotic duty is also enough to give their online rag a serious miss.

        The first clicks of the morning to get basic headlines are usually on the Sky website, as, although they’re not a lot different from the BBC, the layout is much simpler and factual, and easier on the eye than the Pravda-like set up of Beeboid kidult-written stuff, which everyone knows, will not be doing Normal Citizens of Great Britain any favours!


      • Thoughtful says:

        Deborah, the way around the paywall in many cases including the Daily Mirror is to allow the page to load and then stop it using the cross top left on the browser.
        It’s sometimes a fine art depending on internet speed, but it can be as ‘entertaining’ as the Golden Shot used to be!

            • Thoughtful says:

              Assuming you are using firefox, the top left top right closes the browser. Normally it would be a circle with an arrow, which changes to an X when the page is loading. You have to time it right to click on it which gets easier with a little practice.


    • vlad says:

      Most of the media are experiencing a slide to the Left, partly as a result of the Overton Window of permissible opinion, itself partly defined by the huge influence of the BBC. There are other factors too, of course.


  3. digg says:

    Blindly obvious from the BBC footage that the French Police are now fully aiding and abetting the migrants getting to the UK, a planned pitiful handful of French police on the beach pretending to try to stop the departure by waving their arms about while being shit scared by men waving sticks when it is blindingly obvious that letting them go is a problem solved for France. We should demand British troops in large numbers take over the job and effectively prevent the departure of these chancers by destroying the boats every time. The problem would be solved in two weeks. All it would take is the immediate total destruction of the boats every time they turned up before it gets on the water.

    This is being masterminded by the EU as a kick back for Brexit.

    Read this and all becomes clear…



    • digg says:

      Try rolling up in any of the countries of origin of these people without paperwork and see how far you get!

      You would certainly not get a hotel room, free food, a free a mobile phone, a debit card, the support of the media and a cash handout every week…..

      And we are supposed to hand them everything they need whilst accepting substantial numbers of British people sleeping in shop doorways every night are we?

      It makes me sick!


      • StewGreen says:

        Hey BBC/Guardian would you rather
        #1 help 1,000 refugees by letting them in from France
        or #2 use the same amount of UK money to house 3,000 refugees in Africa ?

        They’d pick #1 , cos they are about POLITICS not about genuinely helping refugees


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      As in Britain, the police operate a two-tier system. Put on a yellow vest to complain about the treatment of farmers or the policies of granny-loving micro-Macron? Expect the full force of the CRS with baton charges, tear gas and water cannons. Third worlder fancying a trip to Britain or rioting outside the Stade de France? No problem, c’est bon!

      Follow the alternative media for the otherwise censored reports of ‘enrichment’ at the Olympic games this Summer…


      • Rob in Cheshire says:


        Agreed. For ordinary people, you cannot live in France without papers. For the asylum seekers, however, it’s suddenly not a problem. I doubt any gendarme asks to see their carte de sejour.


  4. Sluff says:

    Five died in the channel attempting to cross from a safe country to the UK.

    Oh dear
    How sad
    Never mind.

    But boy the BBC do. Trying to link the deaths with the government Rwanda policy.

    Just in case you were in any doubt. The subversive left wing BBC is in favour of unfettered mass immigration.


    • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

      Sluff: “Five died in the channel attempting to cross from a safe country to the UK.”

      I never even thought of that after reading the BBC article. The BBC are so filled with their own agenda that they couldn’t even see or state that simple fact.


  5. StewGreen says:

    UK state it now like the Stasi
    it practices DECOMPOSITION against dissidents

    @desmoulins1760 tweeted

    The British Govs persecution of Tommy Robinson has its roots in the strategy the Stasi developed in the DDR.
    Zersetzung… literally.. decomposition..was the word they gave to their destruction, through relentless persecution, of the lives of dissidents.
    Whether you dislike Robinson or not, this shpuld concern every British citizen because if they can do this to him, they can do it to anyone.


  6. Nibor says:

    I would still like to see one of these youtube “auditors” go to BBC premises and BBC subcontractors who send the threatograms .

    People like DJ Audits , DJE Media , AB or Charlie Veitch or equivalent .
    The BBC cant complain because they instigate the connection – no threatograms , no audits . Leave us alone and we leave you alone .
    One of those auditors feels that if he`s paying for a public body he`s entitled to go inside the premises .

    What training do you think is needed to become an auditor , and to fly a drone ?


  7. StewGreen says:

    Minimal coverage of the TR case on TalkTV and GBnews
    Michelle Dewberry had an item about the police using a horse needlessly against St George’s Day suppporters
    and Quentin Letts leapt in to smear TR
    and Dewberry called Letts out


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I must give kudos to Dewbs. Letts just gave the impression of being a complacent tubby little squish.

      The level of two tier policing is now unbelievable. I am sure the Met sent in the horses against the English men celebrating St George’s Day because they were smarting about their defeat in the court earlier that day. But if they employ dyslexics who don’t know what day it is…

    After being disgusted by the BBC’s St George day article which is 100% negative and includes the words ‘far-right’, I had a look at their attitude to it in general. I found this for children:

    They start by telling us the whole story is fake (as if anyone actually believes dragons existed). Then they tell us George was in fact Turkish and a Roman soldier. At that point, the cartoon character’s skin changes to be darker.

    What’s clear is that the underlying intent is to discredit the whole legend as a kind of ‘fact check’.

    I tried to find the equivalent assasination attempt on the paedophile prophet whose words are used as jsutification for the most barbaric of murders which children REALLY should know about to understand Islam – but it seems the BBC aren’t interested in that. Presumably because as soon as he appears in the cartoon, they will be murdered.

    There is no doubt whatsoever that the BBC socialists are trying to destroy any sense of national identity. And they are targetting children to do it.

  11. Richard Pinder says:

    Graham Stringer MP, and the debate on Excess Deaths: https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/another-brave-head-above-the-covid-parapet-what-graham-stringer-told-the-house/

    “The media, led by the BBC, were quite uncritical of what was happening. People say that BBC reporters were told not to criticise and not to ask difficult questions, and political journalists – not specialist health journalists who might have asked more pertinent questions – were sent to the press conferences. It was a political question, but it was also a science and health question. We were really let down by the BBC primarily, and by other parts of the media”

    Graham Stringer MP, co-chair of the 25 member APPG on pandemic response and recovery, said “The MHRA oversees a failing system that is slow to act, causing harm to patients and beset with conflicts of interest. We cannot allow it to continue. That’s why we have written to the health select committee calling for an urgent investigation into the MHRA.”

    Further FOI requests indicate that, in the intervening two-and-a-half years since knowing of post-vaccination myocarditis and pericarditis, the MHRA “has not undertaken any such formal epidemiological studies or instructed Pfizer and Moderna to carry any out.” The letter said that the examples seem to “characterise the regulator’s safety monitoring activity, casting a further dark shadow over the MHRA’s approach to patient safety.”

    The MPs said that it seems the MHRA “is more concerned with putting itself, and perhaps the pharmaceutical industry, first. Protecting itself, one might say, rather than protecting and ensuring patient safety.”

    The Tory Prime Minister profits from the Moderna mRNA vaccines, and therefore insists they are “Safe & Effective” and refuses to withdraw mRNA vaccines, due to the damage this would do to Moderna profits.

    The Labour Party supports the continued use of legal indemnity protection for Big Pharma. This is to protect Big Pharma profits by using taxpayer money to pay people compensation for vaccine injuries. Labour also supports the Prime Minister profiteering from Moderna, as well as supporting the Office for National Statistics support for Big Pharma profits, by giving it the statistics on excess deaths, not given to Members of Parliament as requested by Labour rebel, Graham Stringer MP, because the information could threaten Big Pharma profits.

He was a labour MP – but left at the time of Corbyn and the ingrained anti semitism currently concealed by red labour .

      Toenails TV

      So, @Nigel_Farage – one of the founders & owners of @reformparty_uk – can present an “impartial” programme on a TV “news” channel during the general election according to the broadcasting regulator @ofcom. The leader of the party @TiceRichard & its only MP @LeeAndersonMP_ can present programmes in the run up to the campaign alongside @Jacob_Rees_Mogg. Is that your idea of impartiality ?

      Bet he’ll be glued to Ch4 on the night.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Comrade Robinson fears Mr Farage on many levels . As a journalist – is it really his place to criticise the output of rival ? That rival is not funded by the taxpayer – unlike the BBC – and allows views not approved by the BBc to be aired.

        The comments on the X are as deluded as Robinson ….

      Change the record. We now have 617 Squadron and 809 NAS. It has taken too long, I agree, but we do not have aircraft carriers without planes. That’s just a lazy trope.


      • Thoughtful says:

        We do not have aircraft carriers (plural) because one of them is so badly built it’s unseaworthy !

        The worst issue is however that Boris Johnson sold the early warning aircraft to the Chillean government without any replacement leaving the UK blind and reliant on other NATO countries informing us of any inbound attack !


        • Rob in Cheshire says:


          That is nonsense, and you must know it. HMS Queen Elizabeth was not badly built and is not unseaworthy. She is in refit at the moment, having given good service for about 7 years. Why do you feel the need to denigrate something British which does not deserve it?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Rob – good to see the broken carrier is in rosyth having the same fix that the other one had last year .

        Im sure theyll be value for money one day …


        • Rob in Cheshire says:


          Actually not the same refit at all. All ships need maintenance, QE has done a lot of sea miles.

          The two carriers are due to serve for 50 years, I call that good value for money. The government spaffs the money it cost to build two carriers on housing illegal immigrants every year. I don’t call that value for money.


  17. AsISeeIt says:

    Let’s start the day with one of those little juxtapositions of two contradictory headline reports that tend to give the lie to an agreed mainstream narrative.

    ‘England is hope’: risking everything to reach UK – Daniel Boffey, frontpage of the Guardian, reporting from France, refers of course to would-be illegal immigrants hoping to cross the Channel by dinghy

    Meanwhile, waiting in the departure lounge

    British Jews have their bags packed – Allison Pearson, frontpage of the Telegraph, reports: Britain’s Jews fear for their lives because Sir Mark Rowley is a weak coward. While other nations show strength and resolve in the face of the Islamist menace, our police have shamed themselves

    But don’t run away with the notion that there’s too broad a range of opinions for us to choose between available in our news media.

    Your present news reviewer: pronouns Mr and Sir; gender orientation: just the usual, thanks – has previously highlighted the creeping coalescence of style, tone and content, between the formerly serious Times newspaper and the Guardian

    From the masthead price tag: £2.80 £2.00 to subscribers (Times); Subscribe today for up to 40% off (Guardian) – you do the maths

    To the posting of the left-liberal state-sponsored proxy war project for their top headline story:

    PM to raise defence spending and put arms industry on ‘war footing’… Sunak makes 2.5% GDP pledge;

    UK to spend more on defence… Rishi Sunak says he will boost funding to 2.5% as he puts forces budget on ‘war footing’

    I leave readers to guess which of those headlines was the Gruan and which the Times – no difference, huh?

    A small grammatical point – the word defence ought perhaps to spelt defense – afterall this is a US State Department-led initiative we’re falling into line with. Remind me, wasn’t it a President Donald Trump warning that advised europeans to up their defense spending? I’m sure it was. Perhaps, if we’d listened, instead of scoffing, we wouldn’t be in this Ukraine mess.

    German delegation at U.N. appears to laugh at Trump… Germany’s delegation at the U.N. General Assembly appeared to laugh during President Trump’s speech when he suggested that Germany is becoming “totally dependent” upon Russian energy. (Washington Post 2018)

    Wise after the fact

    Trump Was Right About Europe’s Defense Budgets, Rutte Says… Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte says former President Donald Trump was right to push for NATO countries to contribute more to defense spending. (Bloomberg, 2024)

    More left-liberalism from the Times this morning – a basic tenet of the left is how nurture not nature defines the man. And, since Karl Marx put pen to paper there’s nothing the left enjoy more than some theoretical supposedly scientific construct to support their arguments: Like father, like son? Don’t count on it, suggest scientists… Researchers… Edinburgh University… (Times)

    A report worthy of a headline in any edition of the Guardian, I think you’ll agree.

    Our Rishi is en route to eastern europe, Warsaw, not in this instance – Bohemia

    I see a little silhouetto of a man…

    It’s our little: Rishi Sunak, pictured with journalists en route to Warsaw yesterday (Guardian) – that’s right, it’s our parachuted into the job PM pictured on the plane in assumed casual mode (Tony Blair-like shirt sleeve order and clutching a tea mug – the logo on the mug at first glance looked like I O – perhaps code for the burgeoning budget deficit under his Chancellorship ie I Owe – or perhaps a reference to I Owe my premiership to a financial markets/ Bank of England/Treasury/Office for Budget Responsibility coup against Liz Truss? In fact the logo on his tea mug is a number 10 in reference to Number 10 Downing Street)

    Mr AsI isn’t a number, he’s a free man – there’s one for the teenagers – look up Patrick McGoohan in The Prisoner (I mean Google it: Was The Village The First 15 Minute City? (You Tube)

    I count more than a dozen denizens of the Downing Street press lobby, smart phones (on an airplane?) and old school note books in hand, clustered around, posed eating out of the PM’s hand, as it were.

    And just as in the Times frontpage picture feature: Another overloaded dinghy was spotted in French waters yesterday… – we can’t help but note the predominent demographic – fighting age bearded middle eastern-looking men…

    So back to Rishi’s press pack pictured in the Gruan who are predominently child-bearing age, pale faced, dirty blonde-haired young females.

    No, don’t panic, it’s not Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ en route to his somewhat appropriately named Virgin Island. It’s just the profile of our contemporary Fourth Estate that’s gone all girlie.

    Sometimes these segueways write themselves

    Calm down dear: Man vs bear… Women, would you rather be stuck in a forest with a man or a bear?

    BBC…and the coverage of the sad death of Frank Field.

    I notice others have already paid tribute to the always excellent Frank Field and have touched on the point I am about to make.

    The increasingly ludicrous BBC have just allowed that man Blunket (a man of dubious judgement) to pay a sort of tribute to a parliamentary giant like Lord Field.

    Blunket did say many things but the interview failed to touch on the fact that “Social security Tsar” Field , after being told to overhaul the system and doing a thorough and significant job ,was sacked by Blair in a cabinet reshuffle . A move that left him thinking that other Labour titan( and man of dubious judgement) Gordon “son of the Manse” Brown was involved in his departure. Of course this was a long time ago so the BBC need not mention such details, Blunket said “We needed someone in cabinet to speak out and be the awkward one” l wonder what he said back in 1998 when it was all happening?

  22. friend of yogi bear says:

    None other than Lady Nugee, aka Emily Thornberry, was on the BBC sounding very concerned about her own branch of the Co-op.
    The shoplifting crisis may cause it’s closure, where ,oh, where would a woman of the people like her go to shop if that happened?
    I suggest she leads a campaign encouraging all retail outlets to send their CCTVcoverage of shoplifting and nappies to Mayor Khan so that he can “”see them” he can then re emburse all those effected , using his personal paypal account. Well a promise is a promise Saddiq. That would surely put an end to this lawlessness.

    The BBC did in fact celebrate St George’s Day yesterday on the home page yesterday, did anyone spot it? “Classic English recipes to mark St George’s Day”. We may be such a mess of a country that we had to nick our patron saint from Turkey but by gum we can cobble together a good apple cake. So in summary:

    St George’s day = nice recipes

    Easter = traffic jams and chocolate

    Ramadan = a holy month, observed by the faithful and pious who enrich their communities. It is both a deeply personal time for reflection and also a shared celebration that brings communities together for the month, which is holy. It strengthens communities. Ramadan is a holy month.

    There is a pattern.

    BBC reporting arrests following the deaths on a recent rubberised cross channel ferry.

    One who died was a 7 year old girl.

    Are any of her parents, relatives, or guardians being prosecuted? Presumably they provided the money for her trip? Someone did. Shall we start with neglect? Failure to protect a minor? You know the sort of thing.

    Too difficult a question for the BBC and it’s far left pro mass immigration fellow travellers.

    From The Evening Standard – real life –

    STARTS ITV boss Kevin Lygo has revealed the hit drama Mr Bates vs The Post Office made a loss of around a million pounds as he discussed the pressure broadcasters are facing due to increased competition from more media outlets.
    The ITV show, detailing how hundreds of innocent sub-postmasters and postmistresses were wrongly accused of theft, fraud and false accounting due to a defective IT system, prompted public outrage and helped put the Horizon scandal under the spotlight.
    Alongside airing on ITV, the corporation announced last month that 12 foreign broadcasters had bought the right to show it, but this was not enough for them to break even.
    Mr Lygo, the managing director of media and entertainment of ITV, told the Voice of the Listener & Viewer (VLV) spring conference on Wednesday: “Mr Bates has made a loss of something like a million pounds and we can’t continually do this.

    Addressing the Voice of the Listener and Viewer conference, Mr Lygo, ITV’s managing director of media and entertainment, said he was frustrated by the BBC bidding for US shows.

    Discussing cost pressures on public service broadcasters, he said: “You hear the BBC bleating about it and yet they have all the money in the world.

    “Why do they buy all that American stuff? I’ve had a go at so many different BBC people about this.

    “They just bought Suits, the thing with Meghan Markle. You think: why? They outbid us, by the way. What’s that got to do with licence fee payers’ money?”

    In its complaint to Ofcom last year, ITV complained about acquisitions including the US series Superman & Lois, and films such as Marvel’s Avengers Assemble.

    “The BBC competes in the market against other broadcasters, such as ITV, inflating the price at which the content is purchased,” it said in a submission.

    BBC should be ‘buyer of last resort’
    ITV previously told the Culture, Media and Sport select committee that the BBC “should not be permitted to acquire content that is already made (or a format that already exists in another territory) where another commercial rival is prepared to purchase that content or format.

    “In other words, the BBC should be the buyer of last resort for pre-existing content or formats in the UK market.”

    The BBC, which is in the middle of a cost-cutting programme, has not disclosed how much it paid for Suits, which it acquired from NBCUniversal in a package with two lesser-known US shows, St Denis Medical and The Best Man: The Final Chapters.

    Announcing the acquisition, the BBC called Suits “smart and stylish” and “star-studded”. The corporation intends to broadcast it on iPlayer and one of its terrestrial channels.

    ITV had extraordinary success this year with Mr Bates vs the Post Office. The series about the wrongful conviction and jailing of sub-postmasters has been viewed by 13.5 million people in the UK and prompted Paula Vennells, former chief executive of the Post Office, to hand back her CBE.

    From the DT – quite an entertaining piece

    STARTS The head of ITV has said the BBC cannot keep “bleating” about cost-cutting when it is splashing out on American programmes such as the Meghan Markle drama Suits at the same time.

    Kevin Lygo claimed that the corporation outbid ITV for the series, saying it is the wrong use of licence fee money. ITV complained to Ofcom last year that the BBC had dramatically increased its spending on US-made acquisitions, despite talking up cost pressures.

    The BBC announced the acquisition of Suits last month and plans to show it later this year. The series, which is several years old, is currently available on Netflix.

    Suits made a household name of the Duchess of Sussex, who played paralegal Rachel Zane for seven series. She joined in 2011 but quit after meeting the Duke.
    But Mr Lygo said that ITV had lost money on the drama, because the story was so British that international buyers were few and far between. “It cost more to make than we have been able to sell it around the world,” he said.

    “We made a loss of something like £1 million. If you’re in Lithuania, four hours on the British Post Office? Not really.”

    ITV will next tackle the infected blood scandal using a Peter Moffat script which Netflix turned down, Mr Lygo said.

    He added: “[After Mr Bates] we were inundated, my inbox was full of people saying, ‘Oh, I’ve got a miscarriage of justice.’ And, I’m not joking, half of them are about potholes. If somebody can come up with a good story about potholes, we’ll take that.”

    A BBC spokesman said: “Our spend on acquisitions remains very small when compared to our overall budget, where we are the largest producer of originated programmes in the UK.

    “We spend less than 5 per cent of our annual content budget on acquired programmes, far less compared with other broadcasters.”ENDs

    Interesting – ‘suits ‘was originally tucked away on Channel5 – I quite liked the first couple of series but then it got whipped into yuk …. The Meghan girl was meant to be the ‘eye kandy’ I think …

    ..mr lygo wants a drama about potholes – what about Bobby de Nero being a disgruntled ex council employee going around at night filling in potholes … riveting TV …

    Reading this from 2012. I was wondering what had changed since.(dated;3 April 2012)

    The secret report at heart of BBC’s Gaza paranoia

    Somewhere deep in the bowels of the BBC is a top secret document that could explain a great deal about the corporation’s decision to boycott the aid appeal for Gaza. It is called the Balen Report and has been seen only by a small number of individuals at the very top of the BBC. They commissioned Malcolm Balen, a senior editorial adviser, to investigate allegations that the BBC’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was biased.

    Balen examined hundreds of hours of broadcast material, television and radio, and analysed the content in minute detail, often scrutinising journalists’ individual phrases and choice of words. He then put his conclusions in a 20,000-word report. If BBC executives had hoped for a clean bill of health they were to be disappointed. Balen’s findings, given highly restricted circulation at the end of 2004, were frightening.

    Although they were kept secret, elements leaked out, including Balen’s conclusion that the BBC’s Middle East coverage had been biased against Israel..’


    Not much change then.

    Seven teens with alleged ‘extremist ideology’ arrested in Sydney raids

    WTF is going on in Australia ?.

    It seems the Muslim immigrant problem has got so bad that the authorities are actually withholding the fact that they are behind terrorist attacks to prevent the indigenous people getting angry about it.

    Deliberately withholding the key information that these terrorists arrested are Muslims when everybody knows they are is so unbelievable, it tells me things are far, far worse in Australia than we are being told.

    And I expect it is exactly the same in all the other countries which have taken so many of them in. Including ours.

    If it suited the BBC, they would use other sources to inform us the terrorist are Muslims. But they are an integral part of the same problem. So they don’t.

    They are lying through their teeth to protect their agenda. I just wonder what these Left-wing cretins think the end-game is here. That Muslims eventually realise the benefits of our ‘free countries’ and decide to be just like us ?. Do they think they will EVER stop mudering people for drawing a cartoon of the prophet ?.

    While they play their ideoligical, social-engineering mind games, it is the countless millions of ordinary folk who are paying the price. Just like every single time in history where the Leftists tried it before. The end result is usually the same : as things get desperate, they start to ‘get rid’ of those who do not share their ideas.

    Not if we stop them first. Hard to believe the best chance we have at the moment is Donald Trump. They have got rid of everyone here who stood against them – with the BBC being the primary weapon to do it.


  47. Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

    Well done to the new Slovakian Government which the BBC absolutely hates for abolishing the national broadcaster RTVS for political activism. Here is a precedent for the BBC to be abolished, the head staff arrested, and all salaries, pensions frozen and all equipment and property to be taken over by a new public body.

    Arizona indicts Trump allies over 2020 fake elector scheme

    Arizona is the 4th state to do this. It’s all Democrat – but at least the BBC mention it in passing this time.

    This is all beyond ridiculous – but what is worse is how the BBC are going right along with it as if it’s all perfectly acceptable.

    Did you know that they tried to get Trump removed from the ballot paper in 36 states right up until it was declared unconstitional by the Supreme Court and they were all disqualified.


    Where was the uproar of this clear, blatant attempt to pervert the course of democracy ?. There was none. They were all suddenly dropped and went straight under the carpet. Those behind the charges should have been prosecuted themselves for treason.

    So now we have a new set of indictments trying to stop Trump along with all of those ongoing and all designed to at least drain him of funds and time to campaign.

    And all of this after Biden said publicly that they would do everything they could to prevent him running again.

    It’s dirty politics more suited to a 3rd world banana republic. And the BBC are 100% complicit. Amazing how they just report bare facts when it suits them and run pathetic Panorama ‘investigations’ which should make a schoolboy blush with embarassment when it doesn’t.

    Searching for missing loved ones in Gaza’s mass graves

    ‘For four days Kareema Elras has moved through the noise, dust and overpowering stench of the mass graves at Nasser hospital.’

    ‘She is the mother of 21-year-old Ahmed, who was killed on 25 January in the city of Khan Younis, in south central Gaza. His body has been missing since then.’

    This is 100% classic BBC and the whole, empathy-riddled farce does it’s level best to divert your attention away from why Ahmed is dead.

    It’s extremely likely that Ahmed was a Hamas supporter and just as likely that he was fighting the IDF. There is no doubt whatsoever that Hamas used UN hospitals,UN schools and UN refugee camps as human shields. None.

    Do the BBC inform us of this ?. Nope. They repeat their usual lie that it’s just what Israel claim and hence quite possibly not true. You have to read to the second half of the article to get:
    ‘… buried in the grounds of hospitals where Israeli forces said they fought Hamas.’
    ‘Israel said’, not ‘where Hamas terrorists fought the IDF’ which is the real truth which nobody (except terrorists) denies.

    It’s this blatant and deliberately misleading reporting which ALWAYS represents Hamas in a much better light than they deserve which is why I detest the BBC so much. They are shameless liars who have evolved subtle tricks to get away with it.

    This is another one from ‘Fergal Keane’ who works in the farcical ‘Panorama’ team and has been criticised for his Hamas support elsewhere.

    When I read this kind of thing from the BBC, I support the IDF even more.

    We all know of the danger posed by violent Islamism (except for the BBC of course, but I mean intelligent people).
    However, an equal or greater threat to our way of life is that posed by the insidious infiltration and subversion by sinister groups such as the Islamic Brotherhood.

    (This is from the conference that an alliance of euro-globalists, leftists and Islamofascists tried to shut down)
