    Bleucccchhhh – Monday tomorrow.


    • Scroblene says:

      I was just sitting here, riding this bike, and wondered what may occur!

      Good Evening Thoughters! May tomorrow bring you happiness and joy, and also a postal order from a favourite Aunt, who never forgets…


      • Zephir says:

        I hope so, wating for the postman, having been shopping on ebay fo this, what a beautiful voice


        • Scroblene says:

          As you say Zep, a beautiful voice, almost Bjork-ish…

            @ Scrobs

            My heritage is from the west coast of Scotland, Campbeltown this resonates with me

            My grandfather worked on a farm all his life ploughing with two large horses

            I have lovely memories of fishing with him

            I also got a free tour of an American nuclear submarine that docked there once (USAF base nearby) because they were sick of their limited diet and saw my bucket of mackerel,

            I made a career choice there and then, never get a job on a USA submarine. If the worse comes to the worse I’ll go with with two horses and a plough.

    This should have been posted on the earlier thread but time allows …

    I caught a tail end of A Point Of View on Radio 4 where Will Self was droning on ( and by golly doesn’t he drone ? ) about how he doesn’t like private healthcare and the NHS is sacrosanct . BUPA and it’s ilk doesn’t mean Doctors and patients but suppliers and customers .
    You see like all good socialists our Will is a snob , so he ends by saying that Doctors are brought down to the level of a Deliveroo driver . Like a grand baron he looks down on those in trade , and the poor Deliveroo driver probably buys his own furniture rather than inherit it , and from IKEA too .

    Will can’t see that actually most people are healthy, and it’s because there are workers without qualifications who man the sewage system and distribute the food that keeps the populace healthy . Only the sick and injured need the NHS .

    I’m sorry that a Deliveroo driver cut up Will as he was chauffeured in his limousine down the special Zil lane to the BBC studio but we do need distributors and shop workers just as much as doctors and nurses .


    • Flotsam says:

      It’s generally true that left wingers are arrogant hypocrites. For them It’s all about telling people they view as ignorant inferiors what they should do while being so self-unaware of their own failings.


      • Scroblene says:

        Nicely put in the Daily Express about the SNP bloke nadgering off…

        “It has been said that Yousaf displays the classic symptoms of the Dunning-Kruger Effect (Google it). In layman’s terms it means not being bright enough to understand your own limitations. That, plus being surrounded by a fawning and simpering coterie of acolytes in an environment in which loyalty is valued higher than ability, might partially explain why he outstayed his welcome.”

        I’ve had enough ‘syndromes’ explained to me over the years, and this one seems to fit Bill Self as well as Yousaf!

        Is there a syndrome for disliking Chris Packham and the idiotic antics he displays every time he opens his gob – or is it the same one?

    From BBC Africa Rolling News:

    “14:59 26 Apr UN criticises Burkina Faso’s BBC ban

    The UN Human Rights Office has said it is “concerned” about authorities in Burkina Faso suspending broadcasts from the BBC and Voice of America.

    As we mentioned earlier, the Burkinabè media regulator banned the platforms for a fortnight after they both covered a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report that accused the Burkina Faso army of massacring civilians.

    UN Human Rights Office spokesperson Marta Hurtado said in a statement: “Restrictions on media freedom and civic space must stop immediately. Freedom of expression including the right of access to information is crucial in any society, and even more so in the context of the transition in Burkina Faso.

    The BBC meddle in every country. The BBC hate Burkino Faso because they kicked out the French and are forming partnerships with Russia. Here they complain to the UN because Burkino Faso rightly sees the BBC reporting fake news to destabilise the government, create civil unrest and create bad will among its African neighbours.

    Some background to Burkino Faso kicking out the French in 2023

    “Disability benefit system unsustainable and needs change, says government”
    Alice Evans
    Disability reporter
    Munaza Rafiq
    Disability producer


    I don’t like the look of him🙂

    “Paul and his wife Kim moved to County Durham from Bedfordshire when he stopped working and started claiming personal independent payments”

    “He stopped his job as a property manager in 2016 after developing panic attacks that got so bad he would burst into tears in the office and lock himself in the toilet.”

    A nation of kidults…

    “gets £72.65 a week in PIP payments …

    He does receive employment and support allowance, ”

    That’s another £140.
    Who knows what else he scrounges.. his rent maybe?
    I bet his wife claims as well,,

    8 things you can get with PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
    Benefit top-ups
    Council tax discount
    Blue Badge for parking
    Increased housing benefit
    Road tax discounts and toll roads
    Discounted public transport
    Entertainment PIP discounts
    PIP Grants (for equipment, home adaptations and holidays/short breaks)


    • Fedup2 says:

      Nothing will change -blue labour desperately trying to deceive conservatives into being stupid enough to vote for them ….

      More lies and jam tomorrow to come ….

      And it’s time that both red and blue labour open their files on the ‘sins’ of Reform Candidates . Apart from poor communications I think the under resourcing of Reform – particularly in vetting – will do some damage before the coming blue labour rout .

      Vote Reform


    • Thoughtful says:

      You are missing the absolute racial bias and misdirection by the BBC here.

      Look at Whitey and his Wife in a beautful part of the world with a sob story about disability.

      It’s not the truth though. The system is backlogged by around a year, because the so called ‘refugee’ charities are assisting the illegal migrants to invent disability claims so they can receive more money.

      It’s very easy for them to claim they’ve been tortured and they are suffering some kind of mental illness as a result.

      The solution should be to prevent them having access to any other benefits other than the very generous package they currently enjoy (and I do mean enjoy), but there is very little chance of the Marxist Tories doing anything to cut public spending.


    • Docmarooned says:

      Workshy tosser! Yet another grifter not prepared to do a proper job. Bloody snowflake. Stop any payments to him.


      • Thoughtful says:

        See how the BBC works its magic ? Blame the White guy and everyone follows the dog whistle – but the illegals, well no ones saying stop them getting what they shouldn’e be entitled, and that is why the centre right is going to lose, because we don’t stick together but the Left do


    • Lunchtime Loather says:

      Well, at least he is smiling…! 😉


      • Scroblene says:

        So would I on all that free money handed to me for sobbing at ‘work’!

        Mind you, he did get out of Bedfordshire which is being over-run with foreigners these days! My family came from there, and would be spinning in their graves on a daily basis if they knew how their lifestyle was going to be ruined by unusual people.


  5. JohnC says:

    Watch: BBC crew captures moment migrants board small crowded boat to UK from France

    If you want to see what a complete and utter farce all these illegals immigrants coming across in boats really is, just watch that video.

    The BBC have been watching for an hour and a few French police are hanging around doing nothing. Apparently they are not allowed to set foot in the water – so are doing nothing while the boat is just a few meters away.

    The BBC are trying to infer a French police boat is blocking them. Which of course is a complete lie. It’s waiting to escort them halfway across where the British will then escort them to our shore.

    Meanwhile we are spending many millions of taxpayers money to fly justa few illegals to Rwanda – each with their own escort – as Sunaks answer to the problem.

    If it suited the agenda, the BBC would be up in arms about how ridiculous this is with daily headlines, BBC Verify, Panorama etc etc all getting involved. But it’s about poor Muslim ‘victims’ so they won’t.

    All those police had to do is walk to the boat, puncture it and walk away. More illegals would be stopped in that moment than this Rwanda farce will ever do.


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

      There are Children-BBC articles on it – the BBC always ensure to politicise the children:

      CBBC: “Why do asylum seekers enter the UK on small boats? Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s controversial plan to send some asylum seekers to Rwanda will become law, after being approved by the House of Lords.

      Contains link to this CBBC article: “Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s controversial plan to send some asylum seekers to Rwanda has moved a step closer, after being approved by the House of Commons. Not everyone was happy with the plan and it had faced a lot of criticism including from people from in his own party.

      This article was open to comments from children.
      S: “This should not succeed. Almost two years after it was first proposed, still fails. Why are they thinking this? We shouldn’t stop the boats at all.
      > U: “Agreed! We all come from Africa in the end, over thousands of years. Why don’t they have as much right to live here as we do? … Rwanda is one of 12 countries which has been consistently rated “not free” for the last 50ish years. How is it safe?


  6. harry142857 says:

    Apparently Humza is resigning (officially) in an hour or so, so a good start to the week.(Going to look a prat if this turns out to be just a rumour!!!)


    Yousaf considers quitting as Scotland’s first minister

    Humza Yousaf is considering quitting as Scotland’s first minister rather than face two confidence votes, BBC News understands.

    A source close to Mr Yousaf said that resignation was now an option but a final decision had not yet been taken.

    “The clock has been ticking ever downwards,” the source told the BBC on Sunday night.

    Mr Yousaf has faced a fight for survival as first minister after abruptly ending the SNP’s power-sharing deal with the Scottish Greens last Thursday.

    Article information
    Author,James Cook
    Role,BBC Scotland editor
    3 hours ago
    He is understood to have ruled out a deal with Alex Salmond’s Alba party, and his prospect of surviving a vote of no confidence in his leadership is now dependent on the Scottish Greens.

    He needs the support of at least one member of the opposition at Holyrood to survive the vote, which could take place as early as Wednesday.

    The parliamentary bureau, made up of the presiding officer and MSPs from the main parties, will decide this week when the vote takes place and normally gives two days notice.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Harry – a bit early for popcorn – maybe they’ll do us a favour and finally arrest krankie once the SNP regime falls apart ….

      Hamas will probably screech ‘racism’ again … has that Welsh one had to resign for taking a bung yet …


    • Thoughtful says:

      Damn! He was so cataclysimcally awful that it would have been better for him to lead the SNP to electoral anihilation, but as in Wales with their self nihilistic voting for Labour regardless of how bad they are, there are some in Scotland who are so full of race hate for the English that they would still vote SNP regardless!


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I want to know why certain people pronounce “alba” as “aliba”? Is this some sort of affectation or something to do with Scotch gallic, spoken by so many people they get their own unwatched BBC channel?


  7. Zephir says:

    Hmm hamas has invaded Scotland and England with their victim attitude

    Fortunately, there is one country in the wotld that finds both their philosophy and actions unacceptable.

    Ironic that this country is vilifed



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

      I don’t understand the context of those images you have posted.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Broadcasting – I agree – I told ‘dickie’ off for doing the same and I think he left the site (come back Dickie – I’m sorry ) but it would be generally good ‘ whenever a picture is put up to explain what it is and what it is doing on this site ……

        And with such pictures I’d really ask for consideration to be given to the effect on anyone look at an unrestricted site ….


        • Eddy Booth says:

          I’m glad he left. Just used to put endless links and videos up, without his own opinion.
          Like this is your homework, watch this :

          Pure spam.

    On a lighter note, seeing the horrendous things done by a particular religion / culture when they are in the majority or have a gun.

    having had a recent interraction with the legal system and survived with my reputation intact : I take a certain delight with other’s experiences:

    My friend did jury service. He told us that the judge asked the barrister to explain something to him. He replied sarcastically “well I’m still none the wiser”. The barrister said “true, but at least you’re better-informed”.

    Smith asked the witness, “I take it that you were as drunk as a judge”. The judge interrupted him to say “I think you mean as drunk as a Lord”. Smith replied “I stand corrected, my Lord”.

    I’m guessing there’s no value is a civil action against the accuser Zephir ?


    • Zephir says:

      @ Fed

      There is, and I am being urged to do so by my solictor and family. and it is obvoius that I will win.

      Luckily there is no staute of limitations in time so maybe sometime in the future.

      At the present rtime I am so bloody tired of it all that is not on my agenda

      the oft use phrase PTSD applies


      • Fedup2 says:

        Zeph – I sympathise / empathise more than you ll ever know …. If I was in that position I’d want hot or cold revenge and deliver to the accuser a legal response they wouldn’t forget …


        • Zephir says:

          just for informatioin:

          I would draw your attention to the 2.15 time frame in the video


        • Zephir says:

          @ fed It will be applied, both hot and cold already via the Chinese embassy, who I have supplied sufficent information

          Their justice system is fascinating, starts with an invasion of the house, an injection in the arm then onto a wheelchair and a private flight back to home,,

          it may have happened already

          but I will be making an official comnplaint about where my cat is, (that was her best way of hurting me)


  11. Fedup2 says:

    How will the BBC deal with the new policy of the Irish socialist republic in returning ‘refugees ‘ across the border to the UK ?

    Personally – because of the archaic treaties and laws around ‘real asylum seekers ‘ – I can’t see how Eire can legitimately do ‘returns’.

    But maybe that’s part of the plan – and Eire – not the UK will campaign to get the farsical law changed …

    The bbc – of course – loves all things Irish – Irish republican terrorism is loved as much as that of Islamic Hamas – and the BBC must be delighted that IRA supporters sympathise with Islamic hamas so much .

    Maybe there can be a confrontation at the border between Irish forces bussing illegals back to the UK and British forces told to stop them \

    Obviously the decaying blue labour regime won’t have the backbone to stop such ‘returns’ – or suggest a proper border complete with fences and guard posts .

    Meanwhile I suspect the true Irish people are getting even more fed up with being swamped by third world benefits vermin that the British – who have been so carefully ‘groomed ‘ to acquiesce or be labelled ‘extreme ‘ or ‘racist ‘…must ‘accept ‘…


    • Mrs Kitty says:

      As to them returning them to the U.K. the further question remains how do they stop them returning? Does it become gimmegrants ping pong? All the U.K. government has to do is what it’s best at NOTHING, just place them in a hotel near a port and away they go back.


      • Doublethinker says:

        I would advise the to head west and take a Rubber Boat heading towards the setting Sun. Problem solved.


  12. Fedup2 says:

    I’m waiting for a delivery so have time to read stuff .

    Today Gordon Brown – that famously failed PM – writes about the ‘rise of the Far Right Nationalists’ across the Western World and in particular Europe . Obviously he doesn’t define the slur “far right “ and blathers on about lots of ‘far right’ parties looking as though they are going to do well in continental elections .

    But he doesn’t say ‘why?’ .

    I’d suggest most people reading this know ‘why’. It’s because lefty liberal governments have lost control of their borders and the vermin have arrived – fundamentally undermining the stability of towns cities regions nations – with public services and budgets overwhelmed . Gordon Brown Doesn’t mention this .
    He’d rather talk about ‘fiscal retrenchment ‘ ( no idea ) and the need to ‘invest ‘…

    I picture our Gordon sitting at his computer in the paradice of Scotland dreaming of how he could have turned the world into a socialist paradice …. Using all that money we got from selling the gold at the bottom of the market …

    Gordon – just go away ( although I suspect starmer might bring him back for a bit of socialist ‘cred’) …

    It’s in the Far Left Guardian BTW ..


    • MarkyMark says:

      Nice to have private protection to keep away the bad people.

      “In 2010 the Mail on Sunday reported that the cost of Blair’s diplomatic protection was £250,000 a year, double the cost for Gordon Brown” – 2015

      . . . . .

      Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been caught on microphone in an unguarded moment, calling Rochdale pensioner Gillian Duffy “bigoted”. Sky’s Niall Paterson reports.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Ah Gordon – the common touch …


        • JohnC says:

          If someone upset Gordon when he was cancellor, he would have a tantrum and refuse to speak.

          Eventually they would just give up and end the meeting.

          Lucky for him we got Theresa May forced on us so he is now the second worst PM in history.


    • Thoughtful says:

      When you believe your own supporters are ‘bigotted’ then almost everyone is going to appear a far right extremist !


  13. Fedup2 says:

    I thought I’d dip in to listen to the mourning over their SNP Hamas …
    But got BBC royalty – Esther Rancid going on about killing peoples legally . Apparently she got 200 000 to sign a petition for a debate in their parliament . It’s today at 1630 …

    Esther is dying …. ( no comment )

    But she wants other to be able to die before their time too . It’s great – sponsored by Co Op Funerals …

    It will start with safeguards – then watered down – then bought down to 3 doctors signing a bit of paper – then down to one ‘doctor ‘… he might be called Shipman ….

    Ps – wow – they had some would be easy killer on who compared brexit with early killing …. Nice touch – apparently she is a doctor – her name is ‘de’ath ….

    BTW – why should any one who doesn’t make an economic contribution to The State be allowed to Live – such a waste ….


    • Zephir says:

      Look on the bright side, she got a dog to say “sausages”

      If I did that on national TV I would probably consider giving my creidt card number to Sweden.


  14. Fedup2 says:

    A prize will be given to the first accurate report of the demise of Hamas SNP …. I reckon he just loves the lime light so will go all the way – and with a bit of luck further damage to braveheart party …

    New dawn fades and more bad news for Tory MPs edition

    For a brief moment this morning it seemed as though we might really be living through Day One of a conservative government with an eighty seat majority…

    Home Office to detain UK asylum seekers in shock Rwanda move (Guardian) – that frontpage headline is number one BBC pick for their online press line-up, by the way

    UK attacks EU double standards on migrants (Telegraph)

    Disability benefits may be vouchers not cash… Mr Sunak… noting a trend of younger workers raising mental health concerns… He argued politicians have to be brave enough to question whether the welfare approach is working… A government source… told the Telegraph… “By the end of the decade the bill will have more than doubled since Covid, to over £30 billion” (Telegraph)

    Quick edit required there. To give kudos where it’s due the mildly conservative Telegraph tends to get this one right in their editorials but the ‘government source’ attempts to keep the wool pulled firmly over our eyes: “By the end of the decade the bill will have more than doubled since Covid Lockdown which in both intensity and duration was a government policy choice, to over £30 billion”

    And there we were for a fleeting moment imagining a new conservative dawning.

    New Dawn Fades – as the Manchester new wave indie industrial sound group Joy Division suggested back in 1979

    I hear BBC urban cycling enthusiast Jeremy Vine is a fan – but none the less…

    Different colours, different shades
    Over reach mistakes were made…

    It was me, waiting for me
    Hoping for something more

    Plus ça change…

    Speaking of the industrial sound – Nick Timothy in the Telegraph is a fan: Britain does not make enough. We need to reindustrialise

    Tens of thousands ‘exploiting hidden asylum loophole’ – the Daily Mail there sticking that bold asertion of our daily tangible reality safely withing scare quotes – lest some branch of our tax-funded pro-hyper-immigration liberal regime go after them for racism in their editorials

    Enver Solomon, the chief executive of the Refugee Council, said: “The government is determined to recklessly persue its inhumane Rwanda plan…” (Guardian)

    Taxpayer cash gifted to NGOs constituting an anti-government policy chorus whenever it feigns to curb immigration, you ask?

    Whoever pays the piper… gets the cat calls?

    Who pays for this Refugee Council?

    Income from government grants: to March 2019 £2.58m; to March 2020 £3.50m

    To March 2023: Total income includes £45,000 from 2 government contract(s) and £8,404,000 from 17 government grant(s)

    321 Employee(s); Employees with total benefits over £60,000: £70k to £80k 2; £90k to £100k 1

    (Thank you Charity Commission.gov.uk)

    Half of paitents rarely see same GP each time… patients who kept the same family doctor for more than 15 years had a 25 per cent lower chance of dying (Telegraph)

    The Daily Express are trying to up that number with their relentless Esther Rantzen endorsed euphenasia campaign

    More bad health news later

    Kudos to the Daily Mirror this morning, for once that Labour-supporting, overly treacle sentimental public sector enthiusiast tabloid catches the national mood in pithy economical style – couldn’t have said it better myself: Time is up, Mr Sunak

    Even the left-leaning poundshop Guardian that is the ‘i’ newspaper wins some plaudits from Mr AsI this morning – like the mythical small boy in the crowd who questioned the king’s brilliant new outfit daring to state he was naked – the ‘i’ hints how our most intensly media-hyped American pop diva may in fact have no clothes: Taylor Swift phenomenon Her celebrity may be eclipsing her musical genius

    Creeping Americanism at the BBC

    York Street: New train station opens in north Belfast – I think our Mark Simpson, BBC News NI communities correspondent, meant to say Railway Station

    Lots of health news for this hypochondriac nation of ours

    Ex-Eastender reveals her terror… Cheryl Fergison My secret cancer hell (Daily Mirror) – not all that secret now, is it luv.

    Can you really THINK yourself thin with a hypno-jab (Daily Mail) – well, we THOUGHT ourselves cured of Covid with an experimental jab we imagined was a vaccine that neither prevented infection nor reduced transmission

    Pandemic treaty allows WHO to seize a fifth of British vaccines (Telegraph) – you’re welcome…! Fill your boots WHO: It comes as AstraZeneca has admitted for the first time in court documents that that its Covid vaccine can cause a rare side-effect… The admission could pave the way for a multimillion pound legal payout. (Telegraph)

    The formerly serious paper of record the Times of London does their now familiar impression of the liberal left Manchester Guardian: Depressed and anxious face losing their benefit (Times)

    I’m guessing the Times is now a favourite read in the Westminster wet Tory lobbies.

    More bad news for Tory MPs: Grindr calls fo caution… divulging personal data via the gay dating app (FT) – well, I suppose there’s always Hampstead Heath – just wear that blue rosette on your lapel and a nod’s as good as a wink


    • Fedup2 says:

      Wow – fancy blue labour trying to control benefits ( hand outs from other taxpayers ) by issueing vouchers not money ?

      Let me guess the counter argument
      – too expensive to administer –
      – don’t want to apply a ‘stigma ‘ to people getting free money from other taxpayers –
      -it will never happen

      Other promises – green crap to be dumped – overseas give aways to end – out of all international treaties – withdraw from `UN – have a military again – dinghies in channel to be sunk on sight – councils to be cut down to basics – road closures to be reversed – taxes to be cut – public sector to be frozen ….
      None of which will happen any time soon …

      At what point was Vine on the correct side of the road ?
      NEVER ..
      when he turned he turned into the middle of the road
      and stayed there ..thus blocking that lane
      he tells a blatant lie saying he only moved to the right to avoid the cab . He was already in that right, position before the cab pulled out.
      It was safe driving by the cabbie , cos he put no one in danger.

      The taxi driver was in a state of shock
      .. cos Jeremy Vine is usually in on the far left on everything.


      • StewGreen says:

        Vine brags his video got a million views
        1.4m actually
        He fails to acknowledge it got just 589 likes
        ie less than 1 in 2000 viwers Liked his video

        If a cyclist is on the right hand side of the road constantly that to me indicates, he’s about to turn right.

        Vine is a troll who is always harassing people
        Yet he pointed the finger at AB and got him jailed

    “The BBC’s champagne socialists

    In an unguarded moment the BBC Radio Five Live’s Jane Garvey remembers how the BBC greeted Labour’s 1997 victory with champagne. Listen here. And courtesy of Biased BBC, here is the transcript:

    “Ah, well – I had been up for most of the night but I was doing this Five Live breakfast programme with our colleague at the time – it was a bloke called Peter Allen so – I had to get a bit of sleep, and I do remember I walked back into – we were broadcasting then from Broadcasting House in the centre of London – all very upmarket in those days – and the corridors of Broadcasting House were strewn with empty champagne bottles – I will always remember that (Allen laughs) – er – not that the BBC were celebrating in any way shape or form (Allen, laughing – ‘no, no, no, not at all’) – and actually – I think it’s fair to say that in the intervening years the BBC, if it was ever in love with Labour has probably fallen out of love with Labour, or learned to fall back in, or basically just learned to be in the middle somewhere which is how it should be – um – but there was always this suggestion that the BBC was full of pinkoes who couldn’t wait for Labour to get back into power – that may have been the case, who knows ? but as I say I think there’ve been a few problems along the way – wish I hadn’t started this now…”

    They would prefer us to watch and listen to Sam Smiths

        Scroblene- Sonorously beautiful. I believe that
        Bruckner himself would of given this requiem
        the highest praise. I will be going to the Proms
        on the 1st September to see the Berlin Philharmonic
        play the Bruckner 5th. The fugue in the final movement
        can stand on a pedestal next to Bach ! As for the
        coda finale . It is Bruckner’s finest in my opinion.
        All be it that this really is a ” finale” symphony.
        It could be the last time that the woke BBC Prom
        programmers allow white composers with the initial B !!


        • Scroblene says:

          I’m on the case, Foscari – thank you!

          I’m seriously behind on Bruckner, even though my mum and dad loved his music, and played it all constantly!

          (Perhaps I was showing a little too much senior adolescence…)

          I remember visiting The Proms in the sixties, when ‘The Planets’ was being performed, and the Gods held the ethereal choir in a perfect setting! I’ll never denigrate Holst for bringing in such beautiful, modern harmonies, and loveliness for ‘kidults’ like me, back then of course…

          Might just put on ‘Hymn of Jesus’ in your honour!

          Foscari, how can you be so sure you will get tickets for the Berlin Phil? A few years back I was something like 5,000 in the queue booking morning only to fail to get tickets for the Berlin Phil. At that sort of place in the queue, I thought I should have got the seats easily. The BBC gives a lot of freebies out to its friends.

          A friend in Yorkshire had a ticket for the Last Night from her cousin who worked in ‘The Arts’ and had been given the Last Night tickets. The BBC could have sold those tickets and saved an over 75’s licence fee.

          I bet they don’t give away so many tickets for the 11pm Malaysian traditional music night,

    “Khymani James, 20, said he was ‘unusually upset’ and ‘misspoke in the heat of the moment’ […] The comments were made both before and after Columbia administrators called him in for a disciplinary hearing.”

    By my calculations that’s quite a long, sustained moment of heat. But as we know from the BBC’s favourable treatment of Azeem Rafiq’s racism at Yorkshire cricket club, a simple apology is good enough when you’re a protected minority.

It is not a vaccine in the traditional meaning of the word. One of the issues with the m-RNA injection is that some early batches had no quality control and was a cocktail of m-RNA strands with most producing proteins of unknown effect.

    This is the response. from an elected representative in government while jews are in fear of being openly jewish

    “Thank you for contacting me about the recent protests over the Israel and Hamas conflict.

    I am aware that the Government has provided advice to Chief Constables across the UK on how to support communities during the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. This includes increased visibility of patrols, as well as a swift and zero tolerance approach to antisemitism to provide reassurance to Jewish communities that the police are taking this threat seriously and will be there to protect them if need be.

    The Government has asked police forces to be ready to respond to any potential offences regarding the displays of Hamas logos and flags, which is a proscribed organisation in the UK. Protests which could exacerbate community tensions by way of offensive placards, chants, or behaviours that could be construed as incitement or harassment, have a strong police presence to ensure perpetrators are appropriately dealt with, and that communities feel protected. In particular, the Home Secretary encouraged police to consider whether chants such as “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” should be understood as an expression of a violent desire to see Israel erased from the world, and whether its use in certain contexts may amount to a racially aggravated section 5 public order offence.

    I can assure you that the Government is clear that there is no place for extremism on the streets of Britain. I welcomed the Home Secretary’s proscription of the extreme Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir in January 2024 and the Prime Minister’s speech in March 2024, which reminded us that membership of our society is contingent on abiding by the rule of law, and that change can only come through the peaceful, democratic process.

    I know the Home Secretary expects the police to use the full force of the law against displays of support for Hamas, other proscribed terrorist groups or attempts to harass and intimidate British Jews.

    Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. “

      Humza Yousaf will land on his feet and be given another influential job in spreading Islam in Scotland and Britain.

    I just responded with one coment:

    The Purposes of Government

    Albrecht Dürer was an artist who worked during the Thirty Years War. His work reflects the turmoil of the time. The invasions of the German area during the Thirty Years War were ended by the Treaty of Westphalia, which defined the nation-state and the concept of sovereignty.

    Why do governments exist? One major reason is that they create rules. But what rules are necessary or desirable? That is open to question, and different types of governments have certainly created a wide variety of rules.

    Governments almost certainly originated with the need to protect people from conflicts and to provide law and order. Why have conflicts among people happened throughout history? Many people, both famous and ordinary, have tried to answer that question. Perhaps human nature dictates selfishness, and people inevitably will come to blows over who gets what property or privilege. Or maybe, as Karl Marx explains, it is because the very idea of “property” makes people selfish and greedy.

    Whatever the reasons, governments first evolved as people discovered that protection was easier if they stayed together in groups and if they all agreed that one (or some) in the group should have more power than others. This recognition is the basis of sovereignty, or the right of a group (later a country) to be free of outside interference.
    The Great Wall of China
    Part of a government’s function is to protect its citizens from outside attack. Ancient Chinese emperors constructed a “Great Wall” to defend the borders of their empire.

    A country, then, needs to not only protect its citizens from one another, but it needs to organize to prevent outside attack. Sometimes they have built Great Walls and guarded them carefully from invaders. Other times they have led their followers to safe areas protected by high mountains, wide rivers, or vast deserts. Historically, they have raised armies, and the most successful ones have trained and armed special groups to defend the rest. Indeed in the twentieth century, governments have formed alliances and fought great world wars in the name of protection and order.

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

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

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

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

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

  39. Thoughtful says:

    I’m just reading through the Tories ridiculous attack on White native benefits claimants and understanding the meaning of dog whistle politics.

    You can just imagine a meeting of incompetents around a table in Tory central office, when one pipes up “I know why don’t we attack the most vulnerable group imagineable, one lot who can’t fight back, that’ll work” So off they trot to have a go at the sick and disabled and the Tory supporters chase after them like a dog that’s heard a whistle.

    They’re so thick they can’t remember the disasters of Iain Duncan Smiths failure when he attacked the disabled, and Camerons failure when he attacked the disabled with Atos which was so crazy they actually managed to find the dead fit for work !

    Meanwhile the really important issues fly right over the Tories simple heads. The massive cost of illegal migration by the boat people and the fact that it’s them who are claiming disability benefits!

    What is going to happen with this is Red Labour are going to pick it up eventually and run with it – “look at the cruel and nasty Tories attacking the sick and disabled is there no depth they won’t sink to?”

    This is the third time in their 14 years they have stooped to attacks on the disabled and they have learned nothing from the previous two failures.

    Attacks on the disabled don’t win votes, it has the opposite effect. Attacks on illegal migrants does win votes, so no surprise which hill the Tories have chosen to die on.

    Nothing sacred

    From some **** from The Grauniad

    Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit story originated in African folktales, expert argues

    Think of Beatrix Potter and you will probably call to mind her tales of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. These popular stories, with their English country garden settings and precise illustrations, have been stalwarts of British children’s bookshelves over the past century. Yet the stories may not be as British as most of us assume.

    Dr Emily Zobel Marshall, in a new essay for The Conversation, has called for wider acknowledgment of the debt Potter owed to the Brer Rabbit stories told by enslaved Africans working on American plantations.

    The Brer Rabbit tales, about a cunning rabbit who lives in a briar patch and outwits larger animals, can be traced back to pre-colonial Africa, Zobel Marshall, a reader in postcolonial literature at Leeds Beckett university, explained. The tales were then shared among enslaved people in American plantations, before being adapted for white audiences in the late 19th century by the American journalist and folklorist Joel Chandler Harris.

    Related: Over the Hills and Far Away by Matthew Dennison review – the Freudian secrets of Beatrix Potter

    The Uncle Remus stories, as they became known, thanks to the name of Harris’s fictional African American narrator, were familiar to Potter. Linda Lear’s 2008 biography of Potter, A Life in Nature, notes that while her “first audience was British”, her work was strongly influenced by Harris – “whose Brer Rabbit stories she had loved as a child”.


    • Terminal Moraine says:

      “Dr. Emily Zobel Marshall’s research is informed by Postcolonial theory and spans a broad range of concerns, including examinations of constructions of identity (in particular hybrid and liminal identities), race and racial politics and Caribbean carnival cultures. She is particularly interested in forms of cultural resistance and cross-cultural fertilisation in the face of colonialism.”

      She looks like someone’s asked AI to create a white version of a black version of Katie Hopkins.
