    “Spanish islands toughen curbs on party holidays”


    Our globalist leaders in the west have noticed a spot where people are still having fun, so are cracking down hard with exclusion zones, rolling out alcohol bans and dishing out sanctions etc

    “People caught drinking outside of authorised areas will be fined between €500-1,500 (£430-1290).”

    “the Balearic Islands tourism council, told the BBC that the law … would no longer be needed “in three to four years, if we instil in people how to behave”.

    Nudge them into being as miserable as everyone else🙂

    The parents of Josh Baker, a cricketer who died at the age of 20, have said they are both “broken” following his shock death.

    Worcestershire Country Cricket Club announced the death of the spin bowler on Thursday.


    Mark Steyn was right!

    Alex Deakin from the Met Office was brought up in the East Riding, so you would think he might have an interest in the meteorology of the area. Telling GBNews viewers in that area they might see the Northern Lights there tonight gave false expectation. There was mostly cloud cover although the sliver of moon could be seen in the northern sky.

    Same every year with the Plaeides. Every mid August I step outside and search the dark sky on the advice of the Met Office. Zilch. The only time I definitely saw a shooting star, I was in a desert..


    • Zelazek says:


      The Pleiades is a constellation. The best cluster of stars in the night sky. Six of the stars are visible to the naked eye.

      What you might be thinking of are the Perseids, a meteor shower in August. If you are in a rural area away from the pollution of city lights, you should be able to see lots of shooting stars at that time of year. “Shower” is slightly misleading though as they don’t come at you like a machine gun. Its more like one every three or four minutes. And if you blink you might miss one, they burn up so fast. When I lived in the country, I used to enjoy standing outside for half an hour and enjoying the Perseids every August.


      • Scroblene says:

        Some years ago, I was a member of a business club, which held a big breakfast in a London hotel.

        I’d leave home around 4.30am so I could get free parking underground in Park Lane, and one day while driving up the Sevenoaks bypass, there was a whole slideshow of these brilliant stars, such that still being half asleep, I did wonder if the old brain was beginning to malfunction…


      • Deborah says:

        Yes the Persieds, serves me right for posting late at night. I can never see them because there always seems to be cloud cover those nights. August is usually a wet month.


    • Loobyloo says:

      Turns out he was right this time..in Norfolk and it seems across the country there was the most breathtaking Aurora. No need to go north for that any more! It was an out of this world experience 😊 and didn’t involve tv or an inane commentary! We actually wondered if it was the beginning of Armageddon or the like..

    US says Israel may have breached international law with American weapons in Gaza

    I’m pretty much fed up with how the BBC present every story as negative against Israel now. It was interesting for a while to study how they peddle their racism whilst staying within the guidelines but now it’s just non-stop activism.

    The actual story here is that the USA will NOT stop sending any weapons despite the BBC’s headline yesterday. Instead they’ve chosen to make the headline all about something which a report says might have happened, but there’s no evidence that it did.

    And we get this down at the end:

    ‘The state department also found that Israel did not fully co-operate with US efforts to “maximise” humanitarian aid into Gaza in the initial months of the conflict. It said, however, that this situation had changed.’

    Really ? – but I suppose I should have learned by now that when the BBC suddenly drop a story, it’s because they don’t like the way it went. No ‘praise’ for Israel, the BBC just move on to something else.

    Quite why Israel should be expected to be such major players in helping the enemy I don’t know. The Palestinians really are their enemy : not just Hamas. More than 70% of them supported the terrorist attack.

    The best thing to come out of it all is showing the racism and hate of the Left. But the novelty of that is over. It’s time they got called out for what they are.

    Despite all the stories about Eurovision, I was reading that the booing was a small group of activists and everyone else was cheering. What would be absolutely excellent is if the public silent majority all vote for Israel in support.


    • Guest Who says:

      That ‘story’ has appeared on every msm ‘news’ thread with ‘likely’, ‘May have’…juveniles in media playing games.


      • JohnC says:

        Precisely what the BBC TNI network is for.

        Make sure they are all singing from the same hymn sheet. Right down to any required weasel wording to avoid it being a proveable lie or one outlet contradicting another.


    • digg says:

      A now recognisable BBC trick is to present the actions of a small lunatic bunch who seem to make a living attending such events to stage outrage as representative of the World view when it’s blindly obvious that the overwhelming majority of well-balanced folk do not support them in any way, these nut jobs just make more noise than sane people due to their warped Marxist politics,

    • JohnC says:

      Just try to imagine the outrage from the BBC (and subsequent politicians after the pressure is applied) if this was the work of the far-right.

      The most disgusting of agenda-based double-standards.

      I googled ‘Dancing in Israel’ as that poster says and found a video from Al Jazeera of supposed Jews walking on some Muslim graves. There’s only a few doing it – maybe 6.

      These are some of the comments:
      ‘When you see people like this you start to think which category to put them in, this is worst then terrorism and racism this is so low that you would only think to call them is garbage’

      ‘Why are they so evil’

      ‘Let them sing…they scream when they’re 6ft under ground’

      ‘Now they can dance all they want on their relative’s graves.’

      ‘won’t sing on their graves, coz they won’t have any pieces to bury’

      All with multiple upticks and no downticks. And all from Muslims (obviously).

      Put Al Jazeera in it’s place that all those comments are allowed. Even the BBC would delete them (but only because they have to).


  10. JohnC says:

    Ukraine says it repelled Russian bid to cross border

    Hooray well done Ukraine. Things are looking up.

    Until you remember that this is the BBC who will lie to you without conscience.

    The REAL story here is that Russia have opened up another front at Kharkiv because things are going so well for them everywhere else. They will be across the border soon enough.

    The exact opposite of what the BBC headline infers.


  11. JohnC says:

    BBC Headline:
    Protesters attempt to storm Germany’s Tesla factory

    Telegraph Headline:
    ‘Watch: Left-wing activists overwhelm police to storm Tesla gigafactory’

    It’s only at the very end the BBC write:
    ‘The far-left activist group known as Volcano Group claimed responsibility.’

    Why not put that in the headline BBC ?. I’m 100% certain you would if they were far-right.

    And oddly enough, no HYS opened for it.

    Where are you OFCOM ?.


    • Scroblene says:

      The beeboid kidult scribblers often use the tactic of ‘asking the company to comment’ right at the end of their bits, which seems to indicate that they’re making up the whole ‘story’ first, then hoping they’re going to get some traction.

      Once they realise that they’ve got it completely wrong – which is more often than not – they drop the whole thing and gaze at some squirrels.


      • JohnC says:

        Someone mentioned the other day that it is a rule for them that when they attack someone, they must be given the right to reply.

        ‘Contacted for comment’ means they fulfilled their obligation (could have been the man on the gate) and it doesn’t matter if they got no reply.

        They are doing it all the time with the IDF now who rarely bother to talk to the BBC now. Hence the BBC can write anything they want, no matter how biased as the IDF had a chance to reply but chose not to.

        Your last part is exactly what they do : once a story doesn’t fit the agenda, they drop it like a stone. Aid getting through in Gaza for example. And I’m still wondering if that hospital ran out of fuel at midnight.

    • Thoughtful says:

      I don’t think it matters, both Trump and Biden are equally as bad, with the only difference being the method they choose to destroy America, especially its economy.


      • Doublethinker says:

        ‘both Trump and Biden are equally as bad’ , I am astonished that you think that.
        Whilst Trump May not be the ideal candidate and certainly not someone who you would want as a next door neighbour, he is the only politician who will take on woke and hypergloalism which are wrecking our world.
        His policies are by and large the ones that are needed, secure borders, push back hard against China and Iran, support Israel and its right to exist , seek peace in Ukraine, dismantle the deep state and devolve law making back to the states.
        If I were American I would vote unhesitatingly for him.
        Biden and any other democrat is poison for our way of life.


        • Thoughtful says:

          sorry but you appear to have drunk the Koolaid. Trump will cut taxes and keep on borrowing, he has threatened to carry on being the global thug and to attack any country refusing to use the US Dollar which will make more countries fly from holding US debt.

          China and Iran are threats invented by the Demonrats who BTW are stuffed full of dual nationality Israeli/US Jews.

          It’s too late to take on globalism too late to take on the deep state.

          The West is done, and we have the Socialists to thank for it, it’s too late to save it now.

  17. Fedup2 says:

    Another BBC free day . From the papers it seems a couple of old biddies tried to damage the Magna Carta in the British Museum .
    What to do with them ? Should they be above the law because they are old ? Apparently it’s not the first time for them – done in the name of Green Crap .

    They’d probably enjoy the martredom of prison – so maybe a financial penalty would be better . The beverage report mentioned that people would receive welfare if they behaved themselves . Maybe it’s time to cut the benefits of people like these – might be a deterrent – and will save wasted taxpayers ‘ cash …
    BTW is tonight the Euro simulated sodomy show … ?will Hamas get to kill the Israeli singer ?


    • atlas_shrugged says:


      I think these two old hags should be sent to Gaza for their vandalism and disrespect of our constitutional-law.

      Whilst there they should be made to write out the sacred Magna Carta one thousand times in Latin.

      My personal favourite is clause 61 which I have personally evoked. This makes me and the Duke of Rutland a team. I am awaiting instruction from him on which castles to seize.


      • Deborah says:

        Fedup, I like your idea of sending them to Gaza. Maybe they could offer to be in exchange for a couple of the hostages.

        I presume they had worked out the optics of their attack on the Magna Carta. Using any force to stop their ridiculous attack would have looked terrible.


    • Thoughtful says:

      It’s the two tier ‘justice’ at work again. If the government approves of your protest then you will be allowed to do what ever you please, but if they don’t then the crackdown will be as draconian as Tianenment square was.

      If you recall I first posted about this in regard to the “Not my King” protests around the time of the coronation, and contrasted it with the way the JSO protests were ‘Policed’.

      It’s pretty normal in Marxist countries for these kinds of things apparantly.


    • Zelazek says:

      Yes, Fed, tonight is Eurovision Song Contest night. I actually think you should watch it. Why? Because nothing symbolizes the dying embers of our decadent European civilisation more than the European Song Contest. It has a horrible fascination.

      The contest is now not just a million miles but a million universes away from what is was in the wholesome days of Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson. (1959) You are correct in thinking the UK song this year looks more like the entry from Sodom and Gomorrah. The Irish entry stands out as simply satanic. Most of the songs have lyrics that seem to have been composed during the moment of orgasm. The performances are not so much songs as tribal dances. Tattoos are ubiquitous. As are body piercings. Rings, studs, hoops. I find body piercings repulsive but clearly the acts think that the ironmonger vote is worth courting.

      How Israel does is the big question this year. I believe there may be a huge sympathy vote for the poor Israeli girl who has endured all the abuse from the pro-Palestinian fanatics. I hope she wins.

      And the voting system is a wonder to behold. Whoever invented it was a genius.

      Have I sold it to you yet, Fed?

        Bet it’s 10 /10 overcast at 10pm ….

        Zelatek – are you going to a ‘Eurovision ‘ party ? Have they all been cancelled ?

        Stop press – Dutch entry ( oo matron ) Joost Klein has been ‘axed ‘ from Euro thing because of an ‘incident with a woman ‘ – surely not –

        ( he reminds me of j Saville guys and gals ..)


        • Zelazek says:


          No. No Eurovision parties for me. I hate all that gay stuff. I have been watching Eurovision almost since it began and I feel I must observe the ritual, no matter how it changes. I am a traditionalist who has seen many things change for the worse over the years. The Labour Party, the Church of Scotland, Dr Who, the Civil Service, Eurovision, etc..Not forgetting our beloved BBC.

    What a gorgeous day. My local park is aglow with golden buttercups and frothy cow parsley. It makes you feel glad to be alive. Anyway…

    Tonight, it’s that annual festival of virtue signalling and posing, The Eurovision Song Contest. Oh dear, it’s not what it once was.

    I’m old enough to recall Lulu singing some nonsense about “Boom, bang a bang” and Sandi Shaw with her “Puppet on a String.” Nice, cheerful jingles, which is all they were ever supposed to be.

    And of course, we all remember the tasty birds in Bucks Fizz having their skirts ripped off. Blimey, those were the days.

    Now however, it’s a long evening of political posturing and posing. There’s sure to be some demo about Israel, someone will have a green issue, there will probably be a couple of trannies and our own delightful entrant, Olly Alexander, is a talentless and repellent little nancy boy, who loathes our national flag and who couldn’t hold a tune if his weedy little life depended on it.

    I won’t be watching but

    Here’s hoping he gets Nul points…

      Here’s the ace reporter at the BBC covering it:

      Meanwhile the full-on BBC agenda item about misandrist protestors in Australia – all because of one gay escort man who had mental issues and is dead – got 1,634.

    It is with some degree of satisfaction that I see that Israel came third at Eurovision and the embarassing UK entry forced upon us by the BBC came second to last.

    It shows how many hate Israel outside the far-Left group-think.

    How many times do these left-wing activists at the BBC have to be on the wrong side of public opinion before somebody does something about it ?.

  49. JohnC says:

    Just to sum up where the BBC are these days:

    They chose a gay artist to represent us at the final themselves. The public were not allowed to choose.

    They sent Scott Mills – who is gay – along with Rylan – who is also gay – to cover it for radio 2.

    To get this into perspective, about 3% of the UK population are gay. The chances of picking three individuals at random and them all being gay is 1 is (1/30)*(1/30)*(1/30) = 1 in 27000

    It’s an extremely blatant example of heterophobia. Just as they have blatant racist discrimination against whites, blatant sexist discrimination against males and a blatant bias to stop people knowing the truth about what people do in the name of Islam. You only have to look at the news front page over time to see it.

    Why on Earth is this considered acceptable for the National Broadcaster of a white, Christian country ?.
