    Haah!

    Reform is now around 9/4 on 7+ MPs, and maybe a Saturday shilling on double figures in seats is on the cards now…

    Well, if you had any doubt about who to vote for, I’m guessing that’s been dispelled…

    Nigel has just promised that Reform will end the BBC licence fee.

    Blimey, posh Islington dinner parties and soirees will be in uproar and outrage. I bet they’ll be choking on their smoked trout croquettes. And I’d just love to be a fly on the wall at Beeb Towers. Can you imagine snotty Kirsty and uppity Laura? Delicious!

    For far too long these parasitic propagandists have sneered at and smeared the white working class. If we grumble about mass immigration, we’re racist little Englanders. If we fly the England flag on St George’s Day, we’re depicted as knuckle dragging neanderthals. And if any of us turn out to support Jewish people facing harassment and threats from a certain backward superstition, then we’re the ones classed as neo-Nazis. I think we’ve all had more than a bellyful of these overpaid leeches.

    Sadly, we have to come down to Earth and face the truth. Reform isn’t about to storm to power, at least not this time…

    Labour is going to win by a landslide…God, who votes for them?… but there does seem to be some glimmer of hope, just over the horizon. A truly sensible right-wing, culturally conservative party that has the interests of native people at its heart.

    Go Nigel!

    In the meantime…

      Good’un there, Jeff!

      Remembering how Nigel Farage was such a huge voice in the EU ‘parliament’, all those years ago, I’m sure hoping that he’ll be in a similar position when Strummer, Reefs and Angiebabe start to wreck the UK in July!

      He’ll really be a noisy, argumentative thorn in their sides, and with the help of a few more Reform MPs, the racket will certainly be coming from their seats in the HoC, hopefully at the back, so they can also blast the few remaining Tories cowering in front of them!

      Half the ‘noisy’, (weedy) Tories we’ve got until then, will be gone anyway, so Labour will have to generalise on personal attacks, but there again, they have never really landed a ‘SurKeir’*punch on the Tories for some time, even with the BBC and most of the MSM on their side at every turn!

    Electoral Register
    On BBC Local Radio this morning there was a guest vigorously promoting Registering to vote. As all of you may know the deadline for being registered for the Election is Midnight tonight. He went on to say that 25% of the blacks and Asian population were not registered. Furthermore he explained that it possible to register without an address or ID.
    So what he was really saying is lets have more black and Asian Labour voters registered.
    As I have pointed out before, the Register is wide open to abuse.

    So all the Remainers should put into the EU what we would have paid if the the referendum had gone their way . Give us an example
    By putting money where their mouth is they can keep the organisation going until their dreams are answered and the EU dictates the terms to rejoin .
    Same goes for the BBC .

    Reform says candidates not ‘political zombies’ as more comments emerge
    https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cx77lvd6e73o

    ‘It comes as fresh details emerged about social media posts linked to Reform UK candidates.’

    Someone is spending alot of time going through Reform candidates social media and many of the quotes used here by the BBC are totally desperate. The only purpose is to suggest negativity. For example, why is this worthy of this article ?

    ‘Reform UK candidate Angela Carter-Begbie called King Charles “weak” and claimed he was under the control of global financial elites.’. I am 100% many Labour socialists have said far worse. They – and the BBC – actually want rid of the monarchy because you can’t have a socialist state with one.

    So – weak as that ‘insult’ is, the BBC still saw fit to inform us she hasn’t responded to their request for comment !!. They are actively going after them.

    And this:
    ‘A Twitter account in the name of Kate Bosley, who is standing for the party in Reading West and Mid Berkshire, shared a video and a Twitter post by the far-right activist Tommy Robinson.’

    Why is that in this article ?. What video ?. What twitter post ?. They use it as she did some dirty and depraved act. With no context whatsoever.

    As there are no credits to anyone else, we can safely assume it’s the BBC themselves who are doing all this digging and slurring.

    Exactly as predicted. And you can be sure they have divided what they found into 4 or 5 groups which they can reveal every day or two to keep the story current.

    This is the BBC at it’s dirtiest. They did it to Boris and a whole raft of pro-Brexit Conservatives and NEVER against any left-wing politicians.

    They – and OFCOM who allow it to happen because they agree with it – make me sick. It’s the new form of fascist oppression.

      I’m afraid that Reform can expect an awful lot more of this bile. They’re flying over the target and they have the politicians and their media apparatchiks terrified. This is a dirty business…

      Most of the vitriol will come from the BBC, Sky and the laughably deplorable Channel 4, but even GB News will be in on the act. They seem to be chock full of Tory supporters. Poisonous little queens like Andrew Pierce and the ridiculously pompous Tom Harwood, who was absolutely myopic during lockdown and who support the “Conservative” party whatever they do…or don’t do…

      The old parties are in trouble; big trouble…and they’ve brought out the ammunition. I can only think of the SDP that momentarily troubled their cosy game of political ping-pong…and that was way back in the mists of time.

      There will be an awful lot of this sort of Twitter archeology going on. “Do you condone what your candidate said about Islam in April 2015, Mr Farage? Is she still a candidate?”
      “Don’t you think it’s quite shocking what Mr Bloggs said about transexuals in The Dog and Duck fourteen years ago? “Will you apologise?”

      I think Nigel is now such an old hand and canny enough to be well prepared for these ambushes.

      Reform are over the target.

      The parasite class are worried…

    Hamas rebuffs Blinken blame for elusive ceasefire
    https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/czrrw93g9xyo

    Totally typical BBC trick : inferring Blinken is wrong. It puts a terrorist group’s credibility at a higher level than Blinken !.

    Hamas don’t want a ceasefire. They gain far more anti-Israel sentiment when they fight from within a refugee camp and 100 people are killed. But of course the BBC never tell us that and they never mention how 99 of those people might be terrorists because Hamas won’t say. So the BBC go right along with it repeating any propaganda Hamas given them as virtual fact.

    But the most shocking thing from Blinken is:
    “At some point in a negotiation – and this has gone back and forth for a long time – you get to a point where if one side continues to change its demands, including making demands and insisting on changes for things that it already accepted, you have to question whether they’re proceeding in good faith or not.”

    Is he really that dumb ?. They are f*cking terrorists who murdered and mutilated 1,200 people in cold blood. On what planet do you expect people like that to act in ‘good faith’ ???.

    The BBC then give us 3 paragraphs from Hamas claiming – without any evidence, but that’s not mentioned – that Israel have not accepted it.

    Another article complete with a big picture at the top showing ‘the poor victims in Gaza’ totally unrelated to the article.

    The BBC are equally as bad as Al Jazeera. Israel should consider them to be enemies of the state. Imagine what the BBC would be doing if they had no charter to make them give a veneer of impartiality. They would be exactly like Al Jazeera.

    We’re told there’s such a thing as ‘Long Covid’

    Former BBC Newsnight monologuer Emily Maitlis still presents with a chronic case of long-term Brexit-derangement syndrome: Britain is broken because Farage broke it… The snake oil peddler of Brexit now hates Brexit (‘i’)

    Admittedly our Nige sold us the idea of Brexit – but he can hardly be blamed for it’s reluctant, sabotaged, half-cock implementation.

    That’s the fault of the establishment regime. The permanent civil service, the Uniparty, the mainstream corporate liberal media – the likes of our BBC.

    Our mate Matt in the Telegraph shuns the political Punch and Judy show and instead riffs on news of live theatre today. He sketches a punter at the box office being asked: “Stalls? First slip, or second slip? Your job is to catch Sir Ian McKellen”

    Break a leg… perhaps he named The Scottish Play?

    Speaking of gaff prone old troupers – as we were with mention of our Emily Maitlis… Jan Moir on Lineker’s hideous T-shirt and shameless TV plug (Daily Mail); The missteps that show Gary Lineker considers himself above the rules… The BBC’s highest-paid presenter has scored an own goal by wearing his own menswear range at the Euros (Telegraph)

    At least the BBC and Guardian’s rather heavily promoted black princess wore some rather glamourous outfits: Naomi Campbell Supermodel’s V&A exhibition reviewed (Guardian); Naomi Campbell at the V&A: ‘A Pandora’s box’ of memories (BBC)

    We’ve had cat walk high fashion from Naomi and high street menswear from our Gary, now a little something for the gays: I tried Paul Mescal’s teeny weeny shorts Paul Machell (the formerly serious Times)

    It’s now an established media trope that whatever the Rishi Sunak photo op there’s some punning gag headline to match with it.

    Rishi attempts to shepherd the sheeple into voting Tory by going down on the farm: Ewe turn if you want to… Sheep run away from Sunak as he tries to feed them (left-leaning ‘i’ newsapaper)

    Now were Mr AsI election campaign advisor to the present seat-warmer for Starmer – the very last place I should suggest our little Indian be photographed would be aboard a small boat… if you catch my drift.

    All at Sea? Rishi Sunak out fishing for votes… (Guardian); Tories adrift from reality… You’re going to need a bigger vote… Sunken sailor Rishi Sunak on boat in Devon yesterday (Daily Mirror); Claws are out… Rishi Sunak rides on a boat… as he helps collect lobster pots (FT)

    Having alighted at the pink globalist FT – let’s play a quick round of our far right word search puzzle game

    Brussels has lined up a rebuke to France for breaking EU budget rules as it braces itself for a potentially far more serious clash with France should the far right or left take power (FT) – and there, ladies and gentlemen, is as blatant an example of far right – as opposed to simply left – house-style nomenclature as you’re likely to spot.

    How’s that Net Zero workin’ out fo’ yer?

    US electric cars stall where climate meets jobs – the FT headline is as cryptically abstruse and crossword clue-like as we’ve come to expect – but you get the idea

    As electric vehicle sales slow, US relaxes plans for stricter auto emissions standards for a while (Associated Press)

    In our GE the points of interest are the size of the Labour majority, which Tory ‘big beasts’ get stuffed and crucially how many seats does Reform win and will Nigel Farage be amongst them.
    Over in France things are more interesting. All sorts of leftist types have joined the FP and they are polling at a just under 30% . Marine Le Pen’s NF are polling around 35% , Macron’s Renaissance at 15 % . Other rightist parties are at 10% combined .
    The two round system means that in each of the 577 constituencies the first round winners are the top two and then there is a vote off between them.
    It is likely that in most constituencies the NF candidate will win through to the second round . They will be up against either a FP or Renaissance candidate.
    For RN to win an overall majority of the 577 seats it is crucial that all the right wing and centre right parties form a coalition in round two. If they do RN will win, Bardella will become PM , Macron will be hamstrung and the EU in turmoil. Should be fun to watch if it happens.
    The message for the UK is that the right must unite. The right wing of the Tory party and Reform must join forces to form a new party of the right in order to win the next election and that amalgamation must take place very quickly. No One Nation Tories allowed.

    Stephen Lawrence detectives will not face charges
    https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cq557j53ln5o

    ‘Four retired detectives who ran the first Stephen Lawrence murder investigation should not face criminal charges for their actions in the case, a review has concluded.’

    This article illustrates perfectly an example where the BBC’s ‘news service’ crosses the line into direct left-wing activism.

    If new evidence came to light and they reported again and again (and again) until it was properly reviewed then you ‘might’ count that as journalism.

    But when the review does not come up with what the BBC want, they have no right to question it with things like this in the article:

    “The decision today means – as things stand – that not a single officer will ever be held responsible in any way shape or form for the obvious and unforgivable failings in Stephen’s case,” she said in a statement.

    No doubt the BBC will not let ‘things stand’. This is where OFCOM should tell them to shut up and drop it.

    It is NOT the BBC’s job to question the legal system when they don’t like the verdict.

    The BBC support Labour. We all know that. They support it because of the statism and the entitlement culture, as well as that weird Islington middle class thing about the environment and the ‘benefits’ of mass immigration and because its workforce are young and ‘cool’ and, more often than average, gay.

    The public mainly support Labour because they are not the Tories. After years and years of non-delivery the public are fed up and they think Labour will just run things better than the Tories. They might be right. Weirdly many among the public may vote ‘remain’ Labour as a punishment to the Tories for failing to deliver on Brexit. But it will be interesting to see whether Reform can cut through in Brexit supporting Red Wall seats. They should do better than the rambling, incoherent, ragbag that is the LibDems.
    Funny thing is, after 2 boring years, the economy is getting back on track but it is Labour that will inherit the benefits, as in 1997. In my area of Londonistan, Labour have a pro Gaza Muslim independent with a lot of ‘natural’ supporters who might just split the vote down the middle. That makes the voting choice very interesting. Reform have no chance to win here and the BBC will bend over backwards to keep it that way. I never thought I might have to vote Tory tactically !!!!!

    This is exactly what I’ve been saying about Joe for a while now.

    It’s now gone beyond despising Joe for the nasty man he is inside and moved on to feeling sorry for an elderly man who can no longer function in the world without help because his brain has rotted.

    Not a chance on Earth they will let him debate Trump one on one.

    The longer the BBC go deliberately ignoring it while this man is the leader of the free world, the greater their shame and the more disgusting their double-standards for their Left-wing agenda. They are doing it for one reason : to stop people voting for Trump.

    I’ve noticed a few times now that I say things here and shortly after I see it on the wider news. My ego would like me to think this happens when people see my comments and appreciate my valuable insight. Unfortunately my head corrects it and points out I’m just saying the bleeding obvious.

    Lingchi (IPA: lǐŋ.ʈʂʰɨ̌, Chinese: 凌遲), usually translated “slow slicing” or “death by a thousand cuts”, was a form of torture and execution used in China from around the 10th century until the early 20th century. It was also used in Vietnam and Korea. In this form of execution, a knife was used to methodically remove portions of the body over an extended period of time, eventually resulting in death. Lingchi was reserved for crimes viewed as especially heinous, such as treason. Even after the practice was outlawed, the concept itself has still appeared across many types of media.

      “The Member for Baghdad”

      It’s worth remembering that George won his libel action (aiui) against Conrad Black / Daily Telegraph on a technicality because Black stupidly didn’t allow a “right to reply” in the newspaper so incensed was he at Galloway’s antics wrt Iraq.

      It’s a measure of Galloway’s talents that he moved seamlessly from Baghdad to Tehran – that there’s some class turncotery…. A bit like moving from Berlin to London in 1940 or vice versa….

    Ex-Justice Secretary Robert Buckland wants an amnesty for 29,000 people with criminal convictions for breaking C19 rules.

    R5 had the barrister Adam Wagner on who was a very good source during C19 for bringing clarity to the labyrinthine laws… sorry rules… sorry guidelines… issued daily from the Dept of Nonsense. Nicky Campbell chuckled at Adam’s recounting that the police told him they were checking his Twitter for guidance, as they weren’t able to make sense of any of it.

    All fun and games for Nicky… except when it comes to the callers, with 85% appalled by the idea of letting off rulebreakers. Jail time for not ordering a scotch egg at the pub being a reasonable and necessary punishment. It was all data-driven, so we were told.

    At the BBC it’s amnesty for everyone except when it’s not part of the agenda.

      Even Dr Fauci now admits he does not know where the ideas of masking and social distancing came from. They “just appeared” apparently.

      The government came up with utter BS such as the “rule of six”. Why not seven? Why not five?

      The whole covid response was made up by panicked people who literally did not know what they were doing or why they were doing it. But of course Princess Nicky Campbell finds plenty of people to phone in and shroud wave because their loved ones died of covid (allegedly). One is sorry for them, but the two things are different. Indeed, the people who complain they were not allowed to see their loved ones in hospital were victims of the same mad rules as the people fined for breaking arbitrary and senseless lockdown rules.

    Keep her out of politics!

    “In 2017, she was more than willing to parade herself and her daughter at The Women’s March ‘wake’ mourning the inauguration of Donald Trump. The movement stated on its website that the US election “proved a catalyst for a grassroots movement of women to assert the positive values that the politics of fear denies”. Despite Keir saying the family want to keep out of the public eye, it appears Victoria was more than happy to be pictured with her and the family, along with a family friend.”

    A small cheer for the BBC webshite who have written up an interview with an Israeli hostage who was released by Hamas.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c2eem7e7v30o

    The headline is telling
    Quote
    ‘I don’t believe in peace now,’ released Gaza hostage tells BBC

    Among other things the hostage states how she was kept with a family in an apartment with children, kept in a hospital, and guarded by students who were paid more by Hamas than they would earn normally – prompting the question of where does Hamas get its money.

    In other words, this lady, who was previously a peace activist, has substantiated almost all of the IDF’s arguments!!!!!!!

    A fact I doubt we will hear from the BBC the next time they quote Hamas-generated injury statistics and show footage of a carefully selected blood-stained child.

    A promise to deport foreign prisoners “immediately” after their release is already government policy, but has proved hard to implement with countries that are reluctant to help.

    The targeting of big business is perhaps an unusual one for a party of the right, but Nigel Farage is unapologetic for a set of pledges he describes as radical.

    Many on the front line of social care say, rather than more plans, they need action.

    The OBR produced a scenario of “unmitigated global warming” in 2021 which showed UK public sector net debt rising to 300% of GDP by the end of the century due to economic shocks of a hotter climate.

    Education is devolved so these policies would only apply in England, although the Equality Act applies to Great Britain.

    Education is devolved so these policies would only apply in England.

    According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for the period between 2019 and 2022, health spending a year per capita was $8,011 (£6,309) for Germany, $7,771 (£6,120) for Norway, $6,630 (£5,229) for France and $5,493 (£4,326) for the UK.

    These policies are England-only as other nations set their own health policies.

    The party would also get rid of the plan to ban sales of petrol and diesel cars from 2035.

    Renters will see there is no repeat of Labour and Conservative plans to ban no-fault evictions, with Reform arguing existing laws are adequate.

    The BBC’s charter runs until 2027 so any changes would be implemented after that.

    How much does Renoir suck as an artist? Well, Trump’s a fan …

    says The Guardian’s Arwa Mahdawi

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/article/2024/jun/19/how-much-does-renoir-suck-as-an-artist-well-trumps-a-fan

    The logic in this pile of poo of an article exposes the left’s sheer blind hatred for anything connected with a figure they despise and yet fear.

    Renoir may not be to everyones taste but he was an outstanding founding figure in the impressionist movement.

    However he painted many works featuring pale-skinned women who no doubt were in an overwhelming majority in his lifetime and I would like to bet that the combination of the ridiculous link in the article to Trump and a sneery racist attitude to the content of some of his works is the entire reason for the childish nastiness in this whole article.

    In fact this article sums up what is going on in the World right now.

    Hate, Spite, Vindictiveness and Lies by those on the left who try to tell everyone else how to live…

    It makes me wonder where they would draw the line.

    Would they vilify Trump’s brand of aftershave? his toilet paper? his barber? his tailor?, his toothpaste?

    How bloody childish!

    Reform Facebook numbers growing very nicely every day

    Nigel Farage Tik Tok numbers are massive , he will hit the 1 million in the near future I reckon

    The Youth of Tik Tok seem to really like him , the people of Clacton seem to really like him as polls say well in front to win and the general public seem to really like him given he is likely to get millions upon millions of votes

    And to cap it off . A large MUSLIM donor to wipe that smile off the BBC . Love it

    So why then does the BBC keep telling us he is a unliked , racist , fascist, failed politician and leader of a fringe protest party ??? Strange 😮😁

    Saw a post from a Liberal lefty earlier on a Reform Facebook message , he was adamant in 3 months , Reform will be completely irrelevant.

    A propos of nothing. Bear with me.
    When you live in an area, you get to know people and you end up with friends from a variety of backgrounds. So we are quite friendly with people we know are local LibDem and Labour members/ campaigners/ councillors.

    Our Labour MP in this Londonistan constituency has sent us a leaflet. There is a part of the Union Jack on the front. A little odd as the MP is a Sikh more interested in the Punjab than the UK. But let that pass. In the leaflet, three ‘local people’ are featured, all supporting the MP.
    One is a good friend of ours …… who left the area 5 years ago. We know this because we are in touch and visit them…..in Shropshire!
    A second has an OBE. She has been a Labour councillor for years.
    The third is a not a Labour councillor. She just happens to be related to one.
