    World at one

    Andrea Jenkins – a Tory – telling us how it is . When asked who she will support as the next blue leader her reply was ‘it depends who is left ‘…
    I reckon – even after the wipe out happens they will still be in denial – they cannot see what they have done – or failed to do .

    Then they had the blue clone type who talked the lies of a blue minister – the only poll that matters is Thursday ( yawn ) I hope he goes with the rest …. And that there are many tears …

        Moggie – even as a kid – I’ve always stayed up on election night …. But Thursday night ..I’m overseas and slightly ahead in time zones – meaning for me the first result won’t be until about 0100 ….
        Do I go to bed early and get up at 0100 ? Or will I be too excited at the thought of all those blues who haven’t already thrown in the towel having their faces look like they’ve been slapped … ?
        I don’t think I can ‘do’ the BBC coverage – even out of duty …. And I won’t watch chippy coloured presenters like myrie ….
        By around 0400 the bbc will start its ‘ smug ‘where now for the blues ‘? After green card has conceded . I wonder if he will have to pay a higher premium to be moved out of number 10 Mohammed street at the weekend ?

          I stayed up once, decades ago, and watched with baited breath and a barrel of cider. It was boring as hell. This time round I’ll have a look at the results on the web, along with any videos of ‘cons’ crying about losing their seat and appearing not to know why. I suspect a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster may be required on this occasion. For breakfast.

      Fed,
      Given that red labour will win this election (does a massive majority or a super majority make any difference?) I wonder how Farage will go about winning the next one.

      I can already see the scare headlines, vote Reform get red Labour…again, and there’s some truth in it.
      If the blue Labour Party are still viable I can see another red Labour government because blue Labour and Reform will split the vote again.

      This next time it should be much closer and it’s easily possible that blue Labour and Reform could get 29% each and Red Labour would win with only 30%

      To win, blue Labour must be finished.
      Perhaps some real conservatives could join with Reform but as long as the blue Labour Party exists it will be a threat to a Reform Government.

      Ideally, red Labour would join the libdems and the real conservatives would join Reform, the party once known as the conservatives would then cease to exist and the path to a Reform Government is there.
      Sadly, I think there will be enough of the ‘broad church’ conservatives still about and they will enable another Red Labour term.

      Can anybody see any other way that Reform can win in ‘29?

        EG – the Conservative name is now too toxic to survive …

        1825 days is a very long time to the next election . I’m not too sure that the West will still be around by then … but that biggie aside let’s think about the variations – based – largely on the economic situation across the next 5 years …..

        My view is that it would take more than 5 years to have a substantial impact on Blighty – eg building homes – getting the lame and lazy back to work ….

        If Starmer holds his regime together ( doubtful ) then he might avoid the over spending and over borrowing of the blues – but the public sector is going to want its’ cake – both pay and conditions and infrastructure .

        The Corbynites are never going to be too far away and they are good at coups and overthrows …

        Some reasons to break election promises will be easy – such as the ‘we didn’t realise how bad things are ‘ line – the chancellor will be throwing out in the next 2 years ….

        I suspect the reds will refuel inflation and either be unable to cut interest rates or have to put them up to stop the pound from crashing .

        I’m writing inside a bubble which assumes both the US and EU don’t implode for various reasons …

        As for Reform …. If Reform gets – what – 30% of votes but only a few MPs they’ll get nowhere in 5 years – some of their policies will be stolen by red labour such as increasing the 20% IT threshold to bribe the lazy to get a job ….

        The msm will avoid reporting on the daily invasion – farage will shout in the wilderness – the msm will try to cancel him too .

        The blues will hopefully amalgamate with Reform and maybe have a conservative leader – but I can’t see that – they’ll never learn …
        But …. I think something Big will happen – don’t know what it is – war ? Pestilence ? Plague ? But something which will hugely challenge the reds and maybe achieve real change … personally some sort of revolt would do it but they are tricky to control …..

        If standards of living continue to decline – fueled by high taxes and high populations people are going to be too busy surviving to worry about reform or anything else …

    New blogger here, well been on once and forgot my user name. Anyway I digress. I had a bet on Bet 365 for Reform to get more than 3.5 seats (4 in reality or above) on Monday at evens, so put a fiver on it. Early this morning the odds had come down a bit 9/2 or something, but i did notice that more than 7 seats was now on the betting at 6/1. About half an hour ago I thought I’m gonna put a tenner on that, but it has disappeared completely. The only bets are who wins the most seats. Now the bookies are pretty canny when it comes to this, after all it’s their money. Do you think they know something all the MSM polls are not telling us. Here’s hoping.

    On Monday, it was 20 years to the day that Tony Blair won a landslide general election victory for Labour – how did he change the country and what is left of his legacy?

    “A new dawn has broken, has it not?”

    With these words, spoken to a cheering crowd of supporters as the sun rose over London’s South Bank, Tony Blair ushered in the first Labour government in 18 years.

    It was a typically snappy Blair phrase, yet also slightly hesitant, as if he could not quite believe what he had just done.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39717751

    Blair came to power at a time of almost giddy optimism, in contrast with what was to come.

    The gap between rich and poor remained more or less the same during the Blair years, according to analysis by the Resolution Foundation, external, although there was a big increase in pay at the top end of the income scale.

    And, at 63, the man himself is still in the game.

    ……………………

    Euan Blair, the oldest of the former PM’s offspring has done very well for himself. Yesterday it was reported that his education start-up – Multiverse – had been valued at £639 million, making him worth circa £160 million alone (therefore, more wealthy than his father, Tony)

    “I do remember… the corridors of Broadcasting House were strewn with empty champagne bottles. I’ll always remember that”

    – Jane Garvey, Radio 4 presenter, recalling Tony Blair’s election victory in 1997

    https://iaindale.blogspot.com/2007/05/defending-peter-allen-jane-garvey.html

    In Their Own Tweets

    Jane Garvey: …and actually I think it’s fair to say that in the intervening years… er… the BBC, if it ever was in love with Labour has probably fallen out of love with Labour, or learnt to fall back in, or basically just learnt to be in the middle somewhere which is how it should be. Um, but there was always the suggestion that the BBC was full of pinkos who couldn’t wait for Labour to get back into power. That may have been the case – who knows – but as I say there have been a few problems along the way over the last ten years. Wish I hadn’t started this now.”

    There is so much wrong or missing from this video it is hard to know where to begin. Omission is the greatest form of lying as I think Marky says.

    So what is missing from this video i.e. the elephants in the room:

    Mass inward invasion of illegal migrants displacing our own population from hotels and housing.

    The population replacement rate is 1.6 in the south and 1.3 in the North. We need 2.2 just to keep the population steady. So extra houses because … ?

    The trashing of the economy because of convid lockup.

    Vindictive EU policies / poor UK negotiation disrupting free trade e.g. increasing import/export time and paperwork.

    The madness of infinite growth Mr Creosote style.

    Irresponsible boilerhousing inflating the worth of cities like Cranebridge as though other cities such as York could not do just as well if they had the same investment.

    Our ripoff energy charges five times places like the US.

    The urination on our vital primary industries such as fishing and farming almost as though this was a deliberate malicious act.

    Ruinous forever wars.

      “Ruinous forever wars.”

      “The war, therefore if we judge it by the standards of previous wars, is merely an imposture. It is like the battles between certain ruminant animals whose horns are incapable of hurting one another. But though it is unreal it is not meaningless.

      It eats up the surplus of consumable goods, and it helps to preserve the special mental atmosphere that the hierarchical society needs.

      War, it will be seen, is now a purely internal affair. In the past, the ruling groups of all countries, although they might recognize their common interest and therefore limit the destructiveness of war, did fight against one another, and the victor always plundered the vanquished. In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact. The very word “war,” therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist. The peculiar pressure that is exerted on human beings between the Neolithic Age and the early twentieth century has disappeared and has been replaced by something quite different. The effect would be much the same if the three superstates, instead of fighting one another, should agree to live in perpetual peace, each inviolate within its own boundaries. For in that case each would still be a self-contained universe, freed forever from the sobering influence of external danger. A peace that was truly permanent would be the same as a permanent war. This–although the vast majority of Party members understand it only in a shallower sense–is the inner meaning of the Party slogan: WAR IS PEACE.”

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused the government of taking NHS to the “worst crisis in its history”.

    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER UNDER STARMER

    He said the system in England was “failing” the elderly and four million people on waiting lists.

    But Theresa May said more people were being treated, with doctor and nurse numbers up under the Conservatives.

    Mr Corbyn focused on the NHS during PMQs, as Mrs May also faced questions about Brexit and raised a laugh with a remark to an MP on his birthday.

    Sitting on my sofa wearing a fleece jacket, looking out through the window over my garden to the trees over the fence The branches lashed around by the wind and a dark sullen sky after a weather report for a fine summer day – possible breezes and – .maybe some showers. JULY for goodness sake!

    Sitting here just contemplating the state of the country I live in but no longer recognise. A so called PM, who in the past few days, on stage or in front of a TV camera stated that we shouldn’t be allowing this to happen ……, or this isn’t right….. as if he was some distant, innocent, onlooker preaching to a bunch of disillusioned airheads who needed putting straight. A Government, who in the last few years, have totally destroyed everything good of this once truly British thriving country we live in.

    I’d just been reading through biasedbbc comments from lunchtime onward and then just thought back to a remark you made in your 1.30pm ‘World at one’ comment which just ‘hit home’ A long term Conservative voter who will never forgive their treachery, for me I find the most despicable thing about the majority of our stupid, greedy, elite, scheming MPs and Government is summed up in your precisely correct remark ‘’THEY CANNOT SEE WHAT THEY HAVE DONE ‘’

      Reform is just a protest vote … it has failed and the election has shown that the British people have not moved ‘to the (far ) right …..
      Or alternatively …. Huge support for Reform which the polls did nt reflect …. Replacing the blues as the official opposition. ….

    This being the biased BBC website…..

    The election polls suggest in round numbers Labour 40% Tory 20%. That’s a 2 to 1 ratio,

    The BBC kindly put up a HYS about the election.
    The top posts, aggressively anti-Tory, j show a Labour to Tory ratio of about 7 to 1.

    Such as

    DON’T BE FOOLED!
    Conservatives are now saying a Labour win is a foregone conclusion. They are trying to make you not bother to vote.
    YOU MUST VOTE!

    Or

    Here’s hoping the Conservatives are wiped out completely!

      I’ve noticed that usually a ‘normal’ topic gets a ratio of comments and upticks of around 2:1 AGAINST the BBC left-wing viewpoint. But when it’s a big-hitter about politics, it magically transforms – as you say Sluff – to about 5:1 in favour of the BBC.

      And also the majority of those comments don’t have any intelligent content at all. They are basic, schoolboy level spite.

      The top rated with thousands of upticks was usually something like ‘Get the Tories out. Election now’.

      It’s as clear as day that the HYS are being trolled by a far-Left troll farm somewhere. The can be no doubt the BBC are fully aware of it, whether or not they are actively involved with it. I suspect the troll-farm gets ‘tipped off’ when to start up – but it’s clear the BBC are quite happy to allow it to happen.

      One wonders why marianna-pant-on-fire doesn’t investigate it. Actually one doesn’t : she only investigates what she has been told to investigate and then only to come up with the conclusions she has been told to come up with.

      It’s blatant election interference by the BBC right under our noses and has been going on since Partygate when the BBC started removing the right-wing Tories one by one until the finally got what they wanted. Sunak and certain electoral defeat.

My monthly bills for electricity for the last 3 months or so, has been only the standing charge. That alone equates to about a third of the cost per month of running the diesel gen every-other-day.

    No mention of the Starmer plan to stop work at 6 p.m. (or earlier) on Fridays and Rishi Sunak’s comment about it. But there was an attack on Reform and Nigel Farage featuring the now discredited Channel 4 ‘sting’ featuring an actor. Am surprised the BBC used that as it is now so discredited. It shows the BBC fear a hung Parliament with the Tories winning enough seats to have the right to form a Coalition Government and the the Tories ‘holding their noses’ to invite Reform into a Coalition. That is, if Reform win anything like the projected 35 seats that some polls suggest. Defund the BBC!

      It may well be that Germany has new elections around September time, as the current coalition is having issues passing the 2025 budget. If there is a vote of confidence (I suspect it is in the script that the FDP will pull the plug on the coalition), the Government will fall and elections could then happen this year.
      https://www.zeit.de/politik/deutschland/2024-07/cdu-neuwahlen-haushalt-ampelkoalition
      If this happens it means there won’t be another plague until after these elections. Assuming September, this would make a coming winter plague under Starmer and the new German Politburo plausible. The next German Politburo will almost certainly be made up of a coalition of CDU and The Greens. The CDU is more corporate Marxist than the Greens. Friedrich Merz, their leader, is a former Blackrock drone and as militant as Starmer.
      They need to get all of the elections out of the way before they make their next big move.

    Biden ‘staying in the race’ – White House hits back at speculation
    https://www.bbc.com/news/live/c0dmvm4grylt

    ‘Pelosi said Tuesday on MSNBC that it was fair to question both Biden and former President Donald Trump, saying “It’s a legitimate question to say, ‘Is this an episode or is this a condition?'”‘

    It seems MSNBC is becoming the new ultra-Left news channel.

    But the point here is this : if it were just an ‘episode’ as the witch calls it, they would have him in for a very public cognitive test. It would put an end to all the speculation and recover all the damage which has been done.

    The fact they don’t – and the fact people like the BBC are not even mentioning this most obvious of solutions – tells us everything we need to know. Demands for it would be on every news channel if it were Trump.

    The fact NONE of them are mentioning it is more evidence of how tightly controlled the MSM is by the Democrats now.

    And not a single comment from the opposition Republicans. Every one is a Democrat. There’s more BBC balance for you. If it were about the Conservative leader, the article would be full of comments by Labour.

    This is quite an amazing situation to watch. The lengths the BBC are going to limit the damage to Joe while trying to appear like they are fully covering the story is something to see.

    Keep going Joe. Just get nasty at anyone who tries to tell you to quit. And if they try to force you, make sure you get Kamala in instead and prove you didn’t just pick her as a racist ‘f*ck you’ to the Right.

    It’s very rare that we get such a situation of something so obvious in the real world to compare with the BBC lies to cover it up. If you follow their reports, he got dementia overnight. And the best bit is that this is far from over. Not a chance on Earth they can let Biden do another debate. Everybody knows he is unfit to be President now.

    SAS war crimes inquiry obtains huge cache of new evidence, BBC reveals
    https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/ce44ew9n22qo

    Implying of course that it backs up the BBC’s case and their guilt is irrefutable.

    I passed it over but then realised how the headline didn’t say anything specific. So I checked:

    ‘The public inquiry into alleged SAS war crimes in Afghanistan has obtained a previously deleted cache of data that could hold crucial evidence, the BBC can reveal.’

    You ran this front-page headline on a ‘COULD’ BBC ?.

    Panorama at it’s very best. Decide the conclusion you want then only present any evidence you can find which supports it and word it like it is indeed backing up your case.

    Why are the BBC so obsessed with this ?. Even if the SAS did just go in and shoot people, I am 100% certain they risked their lives for a strong reason. And for every SAS killing, there are thousands upon thousands of terrorist murders which ‘Panorama’ just ignore.

    It’s almost like they want to destroy the fabric of our society. So many of their reports are rooted in the hatred of it.

    The BBC will worry me tomorrow .

    Today the six o clock news Radio 4 say they wont be doing political things by law on election day but will look at foreign affairs .
    Don`t trust them .

    Most probably they will concentrate on Western style countries and what right wing – far right to them – governments are doing and failing to do .
    The governments will be portrayed as either ruining the country or becoming more ” pragmatic” in the face of serious problems .

    Then over to some third world countries and their precarious existence due to climate change caused by us , existing as we do , and how that means we can expect more immigration ( migration to them ) unless perhaps we vote well and think globally – not populist .

    Then how Putin views Europe and is pleased with , you guessed it , populist governments . He thinks it will be divide and rule .

    Then over to Asian countries who wont sign up trade deals with European countries because we`re too divided and haven`t formed a United State of EU . Or were going to invest here but wait to see what government we have in case we go populist .

    Then how America was doing so well under Biden but investment dried up there due to the threat of , you guess right again , populism under Donald Trump .

    All in all the BBC points you in the right way to vote .

      Not that I care too much because our only hope for the future is for the Tories to be so utterly destroyed, they finally realise what side of the fence they are supposed to be on, but in the run up to this election I have seen a steady stream of political posts from payinmg groups appear on my social media.

      And not a single one has been in favour of the Tories. None of these much-touted Russian trolls Mariana-pants-on-fire keeps telling me about. Just constant memes from extreme Lefties attempting to discredit Sunak and the Tories with direct insults.

      And the comments are like the recent BBC HYS : the most spiteful and unpleasant children venting spite.

      I only mention it because you never hear the BBC criticising the trolling and clear promotion of hate when the target is the Right.

    Ukraine calls them meat assaults: Russia’s brutal plan to take ground
    https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/c80xjne8ryxo

    The BBC are relentless in their propaganda here.
    We are supposed to believe the Russians are taking ground using ‘human wave’ assaults and they are all getting killed.

    The truth is this:
    Troops move forward and get shot at. Shortly afterwards a glide bomb hits where they were attacked from. Russia used 1,000 of them last week alone.

    Other places – far less biased than the BBC – tell me that it’s Ukraine suffering the most losses because of these bombs and Russias virtually unlimited artillery.

    And finally we get to the crux of it:
    ‘“If we have to fight with our hands tied behind our back, you know we’ll be only bleeding to death,” says Mr Merezhko. “That’s why it’s crucially important to be allowed to use long range missiles in the territory of Russia, and we already have results.”’

    Those missiles little zero difference to what’s happening at the front. The entire article is written to increase public support for the USA and us escalating the conflict.

    What they also aren’t telling us is that the end result of these missiles going deep into Russia is that Russia are threatening to give advanced weapons to anyone who will attack us in other places in the world. Imagine what Hamas would do with a few big guided missiles donated from Iran who got them from Russia (with Russians secretly operating them as we are in Ukraine). They would target them right in the busiest civilian areas.

    The whole article reeks of desperation. Nobody in the West wants to stop this war. If it carries on like this, we are sleepwalking into oblivion.

    Hopefully Trump will stop it. Ukraine just isn’t worth it. And the idea that Russia will then invade the EU which we keep getting told is absolute rubbish.

    If Russia does attack a NATO country, it is going to be on airfields where the Ukranians are hiding the F16’s they are using in combat. And if I was Putin, I would do the same. That is the likely next escalation.

    As an aside, I was reading something the other day about how ineffective Javelin missiles actually are in the real world. Apparently it’s because they are so complex to operate. The Ukranians actually have a helpline number to the Americans which they call in the middle of battle when it’s not working as it should !. If they can’t get through, they get blown up. Imagine being sat listening to it ring while a Russian tank comes towards you.

    INDEPENDENT INQUIRY LAUNCHED INTO CHANNEL 4 REFORM REPORT

    Ofcom-Watch, the new campaign against Ofcom, has instructed a senior barrister to lead an independent inquiry into the alleged “election interference” by Channel 4 and their undercover report of the Reform campaign. Co-conspirators will remember the report, which showed the campaigner Andrew Parker making some unsavoury comments…

    It was then revealed that Andrew Parker is also an actor by profession, and now a “thorough and forensic investigation” into whether or not he was paid to make these remarks has been launched. The undercover report was produced in association with a company called Lee Sorrell Media, in what Ofcom-Watch claim was “an attempt to thwart any retrospective audit trails linked to the actor”. Now Ofcom-Watch want to know the communications that took place between Channel 4, Sorrell and Andrew Parker. If the inquiry finds anything untoward, the channel could be in big trouble…

      Fed, am undecided. Support for Rosie Duffield, the Labour candidate appears to be not as strong as previous years – affluent area, lots of Labour supporters among the multi-millionaires and second (holiday) home owners – but the constituency used to be solidly Conservative, previously held by Julian Brazier, ex-military. Met him in Canterbury after his defeat by Rosie in 2017 just coming out of the art shop, canvas under his arm so I guess he was ‘demob happy’.

      Am a bit underwhelmed by the current prospective Conservative. At least she is not a Rosie D. look-alike unlike the previous Conservative candidate. The Reform candidate is another wimmin. Friend at church, a woman(!), has opined in the past: “There are too many women in politics.” I am inclined to agree, although I would add in academe as well as public bodies, environmental groups and commercial organisations, such as the Post Office.

      I am not against wimmin, I basically think they are wonderful and hate it when the BBC’s web-site demeans wimmin; which it does most of the time.

        I don’t worship Farage – and I know my vote had no value voting reform in a londonistan borough which will be red at 3am with IDS saying farewell –
        But I think that Reform has value just as a number who object to what has been done to us – and what it about to be done to us .

        I really am thinking of joining the reform party – I’m not a political party type – but I feel I have to say / do something ….

        If reform MPs are elected they will be a very unknown bunch with not much of a support structure …. Mistakes will be made – the BBC / C4 / guardian / mirror will be running sting operations from the start ( or get go – as I believe it is now ) …

        But it’s still worth Reform …. Particularly that it actively hates the BBC ..

    Lack of clarity edition

    The gynaeceum which is BBC News staff, responsible for publishing our daily national frontpages on their online news pages, excuses itself today – citing the rules: Political coverage and commentary takes up most of the front pages. The BBC, along with other broadcasters, is not allowed to report details of campaigning while the polls are open.

    Au contraire, says Sky News.com: Sky News takes a look at the stories making the headlines on Thursday’s national newspaper front pages.

    Parallel protests of neutrality are heard eminating from the obviously left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper: Over to you… only one UK national newspaper has never supported a political party – and never will… The i paper = politics without the spin

    That’s as maybe. While we’re here, let’s look in on a female celeb angst session: Celia Imrie I stripped for Calendar Girls… but I still have body issues (‘i’) – that’s a borderline calm down dear

    That red top tabloid par excellence The Sun may be more often conspicuous by its absence from BBC press frontpage line-ups but the gynaeceum sure had their interest piqued by this turn of events: The Sun backs Labour saying it’s ‘time for change’ (BBC)

    A hard and fast tenet of Mr AsI’s philosphy is that sport and politics ought to remain separate – like male and female changing rooms, prisons, hospital wards…

    Sadly, in this new football world of ours – where abominations such as half-and-half scarves, taking-the-knee and rainbow laces are now the norm, The Sun comes out for Starmer with a rather bizarre soccer-politics cover page special headline admixture: As Britain goes to the polls, it’s… Time for a new manager (and we don’t mean sack Southgate!)

    As for the Rishi lackey loyalist Daily Express and the Labour-supporting Daily Mirror, suffice to say they are in the tank for their respective candidates (however lame they may be) and they each carry their key electioneering last minute messaging aimed at their voters…

    Don’t forget photo ID (Mirror)

    Your frustration that not enough has been done to protect traditional Tory values is understandable… Vote Tory (Express)

    Speaking of sport and politics – as we were – how’s that Net Zero workin’ out fo’ yer?

    Ratcliffe pulls the plug… Sir Jim Ratcliffe has shelved plans for his Ineos Automotive business to build an electric vehicle, citing low consumer demand and a lack of clarity over net zero (Times)

    Let’s refer to the jokey blokey Daily Star for our concluding thought for the day: Will this new lot be any better?

    Contrary to those redux Blairite hopes and aspirations of the likes of D:Ream – one doubts it.

    Do you notice how absolutely no media outlet comes out for Reform?

      I want to see those blue regime types lose their seats – they’ve done it to themselves by being woke green socialists . We would suffer if they got back to office – we will now suffer more with the red regime ….

      I still think Reform will do far better in numbers of votes than the polls / msm predict – but sadly – because of the rigged system – this won’t be reflected in the number of seats .

      If reform MPs are elected they are going to be very strong characters because all the others will be down on them – including comrade Hoyle – the re elected red speaker ….

      After this I might well be joining my first political party …

      > Fatal crash school ‘let down’ by Met Police investigation
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c03lgdzpw8go

      This was the Wimbledon Nursery school crash that killed two young children. These crashes tend to be a bit of a lottery who gets prosecuted depending on the gender of the killer and the victim, the type of vehicles involved, and the ages – don’t ask me why this should be so. It is just my own observation.

      However in this crash at no point did the covid vaccination status of the driver get revealed. It is my own observation that there have been many vehicles barrelling into some victim or leaving the road – post-vaxxxxx.

      Given the many reports that the vaxxxx has caused strokes and heart attacks my own theory is that there could be many more temporary blackouts.

      Given that the above was the case our beloved government would be sure to classify a blackout due to the vaxxx as an ‘epileptic seizure’.

      Contaminated blood? Post Office scandal? Etc etc etc. But no cover-up there. No no no no.

    Many writers for Tory outlets are blaming Covid for the demise of their party. Basically they argue that locking the nation up was un Tory like and now that the financial cost is hitting home the people are turning against those who imposed it.
    Rubbish of course. Everyone knows Labour and the Lib Dems were all for even harder measures. Those writers just can’t bring themselves to admit that the true reason is that people are rebelling against the Globalist order that has been imposed on them for thirty or forty years. It has wrecked their lives, their children’s lives and those of their grand children.
    Admittedly, many people can’t articulate why they are rebelling in those terms , often they do blame cake gate, or mass immigration, or Net Zero , or high taxes , or the housing crisis or lack of follow through on Brexit. But all of those are symptoms or outcomes of Globalism. Much of this is obscured from the public by the Globalist MSM who try to deflect voters from connecting the dots.
    Obviously voting in a Labour government will just give us Globalism on stilts but people don’t see that ( they will do within a year) and we in the UK will begin to follow the trend of Europe and the USA. At least we will if some form of democracy remains in tact after a year or two of Labour and the Globalist Tory rump and Lib Dems.
    One very frightening aspect of this election is that it will result in a HoC which will probably have at least 630 plus Globalists in it! Shifting that lot won’t be easy.

    One idea I agree with is that the Conservative Party must be thoroughly smashed in order that a proper conservative movement can emerge.

    We are resigned to a Labour victory today but we can have grounds for optimism if Reform get a lot of votes, even if that doesn’t translate into seats.

    Here in Skotlando, Reform aren’t expected to get any support. But I don’t know. When I’m out and about, I have been hearing odd voices contemplating voting for Reform. Perhaps I frequent too many far right backstreets and Nazi cafes and have formed a false impression, but my prediction is that the swing to Reform will surprise everybody and be evident even in Scotland. We’ll see if I’m right in 24 hours.
