Start the Week 8th July 2024

The BBC is happy – its’ new government loves it – the state broadcaster will be an even better propaganda outlet for it . We could play a game – when will anyone at the BBC criticise its’ Far Left Daddy ?

    Re: Starmer’s prison plans which could see 40,000 released early —

    One of the early signs during covid that the govt response wasn’t to do with health was a similar decision in the US where inmates were released en masse under the guise of public health. I remember at the time this was a very odd measure that didn’t stack up with the clinical picture. Since then the policy has continued.

    And a reminder of the Cloward-Piven strategy (1966):

    “It is the strategy of forcing political change leading to societal collapse through orchestrated crises. The ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, amassing massive unpayable national debt, and other methods such as unfettered immigration thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse by overwhelming the system.

    Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven ‘proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy.'”

    Just a note . Loads of comments on Twitter saying bbc biased to tories because questions asked of incoming government and complaining good journalists like Sopes etc no longer on bbc. the left still in total panic even though they have control????

      John Bercow
      Former Speaker of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom

      “ohn Bercow is the former Speaker of the UK House of Commons, known for his booming voice, sharp wit, and ability to keep order during raucous parliamentary debates. Fans frequently request Bercow to deliver encouraging ‘pep talks’ for life milestones like birthdays, weddings, and exams, often including a playful nod to his signature call of ‘Order! Order!’ Many customers also ask him to roast their friends or colleagues in a lighthearted way, capitalizing on Bercow’s reputation for no-nonsense straight talk. Whether it’s wishing someone a happy birthday or giving a motivational message, Bercow’s personalized videos are sure to delight with their perfect blend of British charm and parliamentary flair.”

    Apparently it is ‘historic’ and very noteworthy [again and again and again] that Rachel Reeves, our new chancellor, is a woman.

    Only in the bubble I’d suggest [both BBC and Times Radio in awe]…I never even thought about it…and could care less….maybe they’ve not noticed a woman as PM and not just Chancellor wayback in 1979…oh and in 2016 and 2022.

    Maybe if the media just shut up about gender and race the world would be a happier and more unified place but as it is they tend to stir up division and hate based on those characteristics.


    • Lefty Wright says:

      How does the Labour Party know the chancellor is a woman when their leader seems not to be able to define what a woman is?

    So the First illegal boat arrives into Britain under Smarmer Government. Scrapping the Rwanda plan before the first full say of his Premiership, before he even sits down with the documents and considers portions tells us a lot about Smarmer’s personality.
    He needn’t have sent anyone to Rwanda if he didn’t want to but to publically announce the scrapping Rwanda without an alternative plan look like the actions of a spoiled child having a tantrum.
    If anyone suggests that the idea of some sort of new Border Control is a new idea, well we already have one that did f-all. If he’s suggesting that he’s going to smash the Gangs, well he won’t be able to, the French won’t let him.
    Lastly. What will the Rwandans make of being messed about and insulted?

      Who says the “gangs’ are in France ? The chiefs will be living in luxury on the Med somewhere, with a few soldiers manning the operations on the Calais beaches. They’d be better off targeting the sellers of the boats and putting them out of business – in Turkey as I understand.

    Wow…talk about loaded question. Where did that come from because the guy didn’t say that…..

    Kuenssberg….on Reform….‘Do you think they’re not good people…you hinted they were not…?’

    Of course where that came from was a deep-seated hatred of Reform by BBC types.

    Seems lady nugee – the Emily thornberry has surfaced to say how hurt she is by not getting a cabinet gig yet . She’s off to the backbenches where she can practice witchcraft against starmer – she ll get her revenge

    And it seems that having kuensberg and myrie on election night cost the bbc 2 million viewers compared to the last election with huw in charge …

    Put a DFS advert on the bbc was just asking for it – and neither have even a bit of charm or charisma …. But the bbc won’t care … no white guys need apply …

  11. pugnazious says:

    Amazing how many media pundits are now declaring they are shocked at National Rally not doing as well ‘as expected’.

    Er…didn’t they spend the week telling us that the other parties had all collaborated and plotted to rig the system so that Le Pen couldn’t win? We all knew but now it’s a huge surprise to these pundits? Of course the reason for this take on the French result is to try and belittle Le Penn and National Rally…yah boo you failed…nobody wants you!!!…rather than admit the truth…the system was totally rigged so that they couldn’t win or do as well as might be expected.

    The BBC doesn’t like the Russians rigging elections [unless it works in favour of the Democrats in the US] but if a cabal of far-left extremists, communists and EU lackeys like Macron want to play the system that’s fine.

    No wonder Tommy Robinson got the usual treatment in Trudeau Canada – while he was there he was interviewed by jorden Peterson – 750000 views on you tube …


    • StewGreen says:

      AFAIK after Trudeau -police arrested TR Jordan noticed the draconian bail conditions and planned to travel west to interview TR.
      A few days later the case against TR was dropped
      So having made contact with Peterson, TR agreed to meet him at his planned stop off in Toronto
      ie the Peterson interview was caused by the arrest, not a cause of arrest.

  14. wronged says:

    So then, we now have a Women’s Minister who is unable to define what a woman is.

    Two years ago Ms Anneliese Dodds said there are “different definitions legally around what a woman actually is” and, when pressed again, said: “I think it does depend what the context is.”

    Where do they find these people?


  15. wronged says:


    Following on from my previous post

    I think the Women’s Minister should feel quite safe if a man pretending to be a woman walked into her female changing area /toilets and found her alone.

    I’m beginning to understand where she is coming from. It won’t end well though for many other women.

      Hundreds of migrants killed by Saudi border guards – report
      21 August 2023

      Saudi border guards are accused of the mass killing of migrants along the Yemeni border in a new report by Human Rights Watch.

      The report says hundreds of people, many of them Ethiopians who cross war-torn Yemen to reach Saudi Arabia, have been shot dead.

      Migrants have told the BBC they had limbs severed by gunfire and saw bodies left on the trails.

      Saudi Arabia has previously rejected allegations of systematic killings.

    “I have been suspended from the Conservative Party

    They have asked me not to comment or share this: but I know the outcome of this ‘investigation’ will result in my expulsion, so I don’t fear this impacting the process

    I am sure the list of offences sent in due course will be my greatest hits, and I will stand behind every one

    I am astounded that the Tories feel in the position to afford to lose any more supporters

    Until now, I retained my membership to attend and report on Party Conference for my audience at
    ; and speak to great MPs like Miriam Cates, who lost their seats because their colleagues have contaminated the Party brand

    The Conservatives seem intent on remaining incapable of self-reflection and course correction

    If they want to render themselves irrelevant, I won’t crawl over broken glass to stop them

    As I sent in my reply to this email: this imprudent decision is the exact reason why so many British patriots decided to abstain from, or vote against, the Conservatives on July 4th

    Their front bench is corrupt, unwilling to pay penance for betraying the British public, and as such deserve the loss they were delivered last week

    I won’t be wasting time on salvaging the Party’s reputation. I was only ever interested in influencing it to the end of restoring our ravaged country

    I will be taking up membership elsewhere”

How do broken English foreigners get to work for our political parties as she did. By her own admission she’s been here for just 15 years. Surely Greece would benefit from her political nous ?


  23. Siempre Recht says:

    I know this should be about the BBC, but a “report” from Sky News 15 minutes ago sent my blood pressure to Vesuvius levels.

    Their Economics “reporter” actually had the gall to state that previous reports on the UK economy, you know, reports up to July 4, were wrong on UK growth levels.

    They compared UK levels with OECD average levels, that included the USA and Turkey; high growth countries.

    We should actually have been comparing us to European levels. And, guess what, we’re actually 1.6% better than European average growth rates.

    So the situation, is actually not that bad!

    They have the audacity to say this with a straight face, the liars. They’ve spent 14 bloody years deriding the Tories, and now after only 3 days(!), they think that the economy under Labour is “not that bad”.



    • Sluff says:

      ……’1.6% better than average European growth rates’.

      That wouldn’t be the EU by remote chance?


      A fact the BBC may be reluctant to mention for some totally unfathomable reason.


      • Siempre Recht says:

        Agreed! So, it looks like we’re doing just fine after Brexit. Yes?


        • Fedup2 says:

          It’s going up because the EU is using the UK as its’ third world dustbin …. Brexit has yet to happen – and I’m sure that when starmer send the dolt Lammy to rejoin he will sell us down the river …
          Bet they can’t wait…


    • StewGreen says:

      I’ll disagree with that and it’s more complex
      #1 It had already been reported BEFORE thelection that the UK growth rate is better that Europe

      #2 BUT BUT that is annual growth
      If It depends which time period you pick cos it you pick something like 10 years the UK is lower
      It’s to do with the way different countrries growth spurts come at different times
      If one country comes out of Covid quickly
      then the next year it’s growth looks bad compared to countries that are catching up etc.


      • Siempre Recht says:

        Really? I bet if you asked ANYONE on the street, they would not have known that, i.e, the people who just voted in the landslide (of seats).

        And yes, my BA (HONS) in Economics tells me it’s a little bit more complex.

        I’m talking about the general level of reporting.


        • StewGreen says:

          GDP growth is a bit of a BS metric

    PM programme Radio 4 .

    Guests purporting to be experts lined up to tell us that building over the green belt is the way to get the economy moving .
    No dissent , just Gavin the gay BBC man asking soft leading questions which were really aimed at any opposition to tarmacing every field , such as ‘ what do we do about NIMBYs . The consensus being that such people were selfish greedy bastards .
    Now after the war there was a house building frenzy necessary to domicile the British people bombed out of their homes because of the Blitz .
    But not asked by the BBC is why we need to do it now , when they also report primary schools closing because the birth rate is low ?

    Is this the greatest shibboleth set against us , bring in millions of mainly unskilled , semi literate males and then build accommodation for them ?

    In that case , help Africa . No need for aid . Get those countries to build dwellings and then flood them with immigrants.
    For South America, start the great urbanisation in the Rain Forest .

    Funny old thing…the BBC when talking Euro 24 and the German team suddenly went off-piste and commented about an anti-AFD protest which they told us was full of ‘anger and revulsion’ towards the AFD…and their Far-Right immigration policies…allegedly.

    However…when an actual, and well known and respected German player makes some comments about the effect of migration upon Germany it’s radio silence…but previously, and just recently, the BBC was more than happy to examine his words at length….

    ‘”It was really instructive to listen to Kroos,” Rae told the BBC’s Scottish Football Podcast. ‘

    Lol…not so instructive now apparently as he suggests migration has not changed Germany for the better and it is unsafe for his daughter to be there…go figure.

    ‘Germany’s midfield great Toni Kroos says ‘uncontrolled’ immigration has ‘overwhelmed’ his homeland and insists his daughter is safer living in Spain as he retires after Euro 2024 defeat’

    The BBC has been a powerful and influential part of the pro-immigration industry…and all along knowing that mass migration will cause chaos and civil breakdown in Europe and America…..that’s its aim….erase white culture and in the end white people and their influence over the world… think that’s not true?…it is. The Great Replacement, and the Great Reset, is well under way.

    The BBC and Guardian will tell you it is a huge lie, a dangerous lie…

    ‘A deadly ideology: how the ‘great replacement theory’ went mainstream’

    …and yet they cheer on mass immigration to America and Europe with reports delighting in the changing demographics as whites become outnumbered….and of course adopt the term ‘global majority’.

    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds is a charity- and pressure organisation – to do what its title declares .

    It receives huge donations from the public and from the government ( which is why some call it a fake charity ) .

    One of its foremost concerns is the decreasing habitat for birds to exist. It has bought up land to make nature reserves .

    As I said , it does do pressure group stuff like lobbying . It’s not alone in this and very often governments find this can be beneficial because;
    all governments need money , and the easiest cheapest way of getting money is through tax – even if it is sometimes given a euphemism like harbour dues , road fund , licence fee , insurance contributions etc .
    And what better way is to say you tax something for the greater good of the person to be fleeced- sorry taxed .
    And what better way to fleece/tax someone is to say it wasn’t us – the government- guv ,that wanted this but a respected organisation ( like a charity) that produced the figures that shows if you’re taxed enough you stop doing harmful things to yourself, the environment and the world . It’s no wonder governments give these charities your money to be told by these charities to tax you more .
    And the RSPB gets an awful lot from every government .

    Now I want the BBC to ask the RSPB what view it takes on the new government’s policy of concreting over the green belt .


  30. atlas_shrugged says:

    So Rachel Reeves wants to rip up planning rules and splatter concrete over our green belt to build 1.5 million homes.

    This is worse than Ponzi economics. This encourages more investors with at least using their own money. In contrast Reeves rattling the magic money tree to house the illegal invaders in jerry-built houses will do this by printing money.

    She is not building houses, she is building debt. The 1.5 million homes will need 3 million workers tethered to a working treadmill for the next 25 years. She probably has no idea where this explosion in jobs will come from.

    The reality is that these jobs are unlikely to stay long term with a likely result of a build boom-and-bust, as was seen in Southern Ireland during the Celtic Tiger Crash.

Now, we currently have no leadership from the Liberal Democrats, Conservative or Labour Parties saying they are going to do anything to change that course. @5:56 … if any party wishing to get into power doesn’t address this they are committing political suicide….@10:30″ {youtube – Douglas Murray – oct2015}

    Flipping heck there is a database of quotes from the great man David Lammy
    all are amazing inspiration

    The 1980s were tough for most of Britain, but nowhere more so than Tottenham.
    .. Yes all the coal miners in Tottenham spent months on strike and then suddenly all the coal mines in Tottenham closed

    Some black kids had it tough in Tottenham cos their father’s ran away
    Didn’t they Lammy ?

    well his stayed for the first 12 years

    The Database misses his most inspirational quote
    “When I was growing up my mum relied on tax credits.
    Tonight in opposing the Welfare Bill I voted for millions of people who do the same.”
    … Tax credits weren’t introduced until Lammy was 31 years old

    Today Lammy claims to be working class
    but since his mother brought up 5 kids alone and he said they lived on benefits
    I wonder how much time she spent working
    Isn’t he from a non-working class family ?

    Russian court jails theatre figures over IS wives play

    ‘A Russian playwright and a theatre director have been found guilty of “justifying terrorism” by a military court in Moscow.’

    But no description at all about what they did from the BBC. What was in those plays which led to these charges BBC ?. A vital omission.

    I see the BBC justifying terrorism every day. That’s EXACTLY what refusing to call them terrorists because other Muslims view them as ‘freedom fighters’ is.

    The article is littered with irrelevant stuff like this which is just there to imply innocence:
    ‘Both she and Petriychuk maintained their innocence throughout the trial.’
    What ?. Instead of changing to say they were guilty halfway through then switching back to ‘innocent’ ??.

    ‘In custody since May 2023, they will now be sent to a penal colony to serve their sentences, according to Russian news agency RBC.’
    That would be prison then would it ?.

    Sounds a lot to me like we have more left-wing luvvies giving sympathy to Muslim terrorists. Just like the BBC and the rest of the Left do here. God alone knows why. They have NOTHING in common. It’s hypocrisy in the extreme by the Left. They just ignore all the extreme bad things they do : the murders for simply going against a religious book, the extreme misogyny and the extreme homophobia. Is it really as simple as them just making convenient ‘victims’ to use against the Right and a shared racism against Jews ?.

    Russia are showing they have zero tolerance for supporting terrorists. As usual they are a bit extreme, but just look at the result here when you are too far in the other direction.

    Yet another article from a BBC clone. The fact they all look this shows just how lopsided the staff at the BBC have become.

    Murder arrests over industrial estate shooting death

    The BBC like murders in Liverpool because it’s usually someone white. So it makes the front page and we get a picture. And this arrest is simply on suspicion. No charges yet.

    Meanwhile they didn’t even report that the man on the left was just CONVICTED of the murder of the man on the right with a large knife on the street in broad daylight.
    They seem to think this kind of barbarism in open view is not even newsworthy. Either that or they just don’t want us to know about it.

    What a complete racist and sexist farce the BBC have become. And they are so warped by their agenda, they think they are right to be and it will all lead to a better world.
    They been trying hard for decades now and it’s far worse. The only thing they have done is lie to us (by omission mostly) on an epic scale.

    White House fights back against doubts on Biden fitness

    “Questions about his mental acuity have intensified since a poor debate performance against Donald Trump on 27 June” – No bbc, questions have been asked a lot longer than that, search the internet bbc!

    “Last week, the EU took action to protect the bloc’s motor industry by raising tariffs on Chinese EVs.

    The decision saw BYD hit with an extra tariff of 17.4% on the vehicles it ships from China to the EU, which was on top of a 10% import duty.

    Turkey is part of the EU’s Customs Union, which means vehicles made in the country and exported to the bloc (CHINA) can avoid the additional tariff.


    HA HA HA HA HAHA! Chinese crap coming your way whether you like it or not!


    Ford’s £80m EU loan to boost Turkey factory – and close Southampton’s Swaythling plant. Ford’s Turkey plant. THE Daily Echo can reveal today that a huge payout of EU cash was made to Ford just before the company closed its Southampton plant – and it went to boost Transit production in Turkey.1 Nov 2012

    All urban land in China is owned by the Chinese government and is commonly referred to as “state-owned land.” All rural and suburban land is owned by rural collectives (i.e., local groups of farmers) and is commonly referred to as “collective land.”

    What a nasty, unpleasant and bile-ridden piece by Ros Atkins, gloating over the demise of Liz Truss…

    The context is totally unnecessary, the disdain of the bloke is far too apparent, and if I had time to waste, I’d look out for similar pieces about Labour people. It would take far too long…

    Does the saying, ‘They work for you’ apply to such offensive, impartial tax-paid beeboids?

    Someone’s going to get a rocket edition


    Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width edition

    That was the title of a late 1960s British TV comedy.

    Meanwhile, twenty-first century US politics says, apparently, never mind the quality (or lack thereof) of the Democrat, feel the anti-Trumpism: Democrats look toward Kamala Harris – but could she beat Trump? (Courtney Subramanian, Reporting from New Orleans and Washington DC, BBC)

    I’m tempted to segueway from there to our very own Wimbledon sub-Romanian… but she’s only gone and knocked out Andy Murray and now she’s out herself and enough of sport, this is getting serious.

    Joe Biden has been a confused doddering geriatric embarrassment, his slips – metaphorical and actual – concealed or excused by a compliant mainstream media both sides of the pond. Now he garners a modicum of sympathy and we cite elder abuse as the news gradually slips out that he may have been suffering from Parkinson’s disease – when we just assumed he was a relentless old blowhard leftist. Kamala is a cackling word-salad serving nonentity who shagged someone once for preferment, a living gibbering exemplar of the Peter principle. But can she beat Donald Trump, frets the BBC. That’s the main thing. This in a western world rapidly going to pot.

    The problem is widespread. New Blairite redux Labour are deeply suspect and our Cameronian gay One Nation Tories a limp-wristed busted flush – but so long as Farage and his Reform tendency are kept in their box either will suffice to run the show.

    Marine Le Pen had to be denied the keys to power at any cost: After France’s election shock comes the real power struggle… “We know who lost but we don’t know who won…” Sylvie Kauffmann, a newspaper columnist for Le Monde, told me. (Andrew Harding, Paris correspondent, BBC) – and frankly they don’t care, just so long as – see above Trump and Farage examples.

    Failing regimes tend to distract the people by taking them to war. That’s a bit dangerous in a world with nukes and rather bad for business – so let’s do a small war – by proxy.

    Russia bombs children’s hospital (‘i’)

    Putin is a canny old operator and he surely wouldn’t do that deliberately: Russia denied targeting the hospital, saying it had been hit by fragments of a Ukrainian air defence missile, while Ukraine said it had found remnants of a Russian cruise missile. (BBC)

    Hospital officials told Ukrainian TV that about 20 children were being treated in the ward which was hit. (BBC) – none were killed – or we’d have been told.

    Ukraine mourns after day of Russian air strikes (BBC)

    Yes, but can we bring it back to sport?

    Following the strike, Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina wore a black ribbon as a mark of respect when she played in the round of 16 at Wimbledon on Monday afternoon. She fought back tears during her post-match interview, saying: “It wasn’t easy to focus today on the match…” (BBC)

    There is a dark rumour that Rishi Sunak told officials he wasn’t cut out to be a wartime leader. Remember folks, it’s not a conspiracy theory, if it’s true.

    Pressure on Starmer to raise defence spending… Former head of army compares threat of ‘new axis’ to Nazis as children’s hospital bombed in Kyiv (Times) – you could have said: children’s hospital “blitzed” – that would have animated boomer memories more.

    Could we turn up the rhetoric to eleven, as Spinal Tap would have it?

    Putin bombs children’s cancer hospital (the ever-excitable Daily Mail) – just as Marks and Spencers says ‘This is not just food… this is M&S Food’ so ‘This is not just a hospital… this is a children’s cancer hospital’

    And having hopefully raised you hackles, now comes the call to action: Atrocity that shows why Britain and Nato MUST spend more on defence (Daily Mail) – becuase we’ve a fabulous democracy, spiffing life-style, cherished national heritage and green and pleasant land to defend… from Vlad, apparently.

    Can we also now hear it from the left side of the room?

    Atrocity in Ukraine… Putin bombs cancer kids (Daily Mirror)

    Louder please and rather more flowery language, perhaps?

    ‘A war against life itself’ Horror at Russian strike on children’s hospital (Guardian)

    And can we hear it one more time…

    Putin’s ‘genocidal’ missile blitz on children’s hospital – ahhh… there it is – trust the Daily Express to play the blitz card.

    All that fluff and bluster should guarantee public acquiescence with whatever new cash and weaponery we decide to send over there at the upcoming summit. Someone’s going to get a rocket.

    And if that lot doesn’t get 77th Brigade onto me…

    This is about that time in the review that I like to say – how’s that Net Zero workin’ out fo’ yer?

    Stalled EV sales sap drive of Europe’s battery makers (FT) – you mean to say that cute little fella the Duracell Bunny-ish Green movement is finally running out of energy at last?

    Calm down dear

    I’m 44 and paid £578 to be told my biological age is… 48 (‘i’)

    On a lighter note

    If you think you’re having a bad day! – jokes the Daily Express (Time for that title to get reunited with the people of Ukraine on their masthead, we wonder?)

    The jokey blokey Daily Star explains: I got 99 problems… an icecream van was washed out to sea after being parked on a beach in Cornwall… A bit of bad luck as Mr Whippy swept out to sea – Who could have left the van parked there and wandered off the job? Someone’s going to get a rocket (there’s one for the teenagers) Global warming, anyone? Or blame our delinquent seagulls?


    • Fedup2 says:

      But surely – if someone is willing to pay £578 to be told their ‘biological age ‘ then surely ( second surely ) it also includes a view that their mental age is about …11? Or is it bidens ‘ age .

      The Biden mental thing has to be dealt with carefully … if a real journo starts asking ‘how long has be been ga ga ?” Then it might track back to the stolen election of 2020 .

      And if Joe was ga ga in 2020 … who planned and carried out the theft ? Eh mr Obama ?


  44. JohnC says:

    Just saw the film ‘1984’ from 1984 is available to watch and the description for it is:
    ‘Based on George Orwell’s novel. In a totalitarian future society, Winston Smith, whose work is re-writing history, tries to rebel.’

    Meanwhile in the present day:
    ‘BBC guilty of ‘rewriting British history’ to promote woke agenda in ‘biased’ documentaries’

    And I’m sure the people in the fictional version thought they were doing it ‘for the greater good’ as well.

    I honestly don’t think the BBC realise what they have become. I can tell much of what they do is driven by their hatred of the Right. And they are so sure they are right to do it – even if it involves lies and dirty deeds.

    Terrorists justify what they do in a similar way. They claim ‘Allah knows their heart’ – meaning they do bad things for what they think are good reasons.

    Labour to introducer pan banging at 8pm instead of National Service to help the NHS!


  46. Fedup2 says:

    JohnC – the problem with that too – is that if bbc people perceive that they get ‘advancement ‘( more money – less work ) if the demonstrate their ‘far leftness’ then it goes on and on – leading ridiculous outcomes like coloured folk portraying white people in ‘period drama ‘ or male leads in Shakespeare being dun by girls …
    The bbc disciples all nod in approval but Joe Public turns over to channel 5 and the latest jfk/9.11/titantic revelation … ( good for us )

    BTW – this also explains the 33% drop in viewing the bbc on election night – dross like myrie and koonsberg don’t make it .. but no worries for the bbc …


  47. Fedup2 says:

    Not BBC – if I was a script writer for TV dramas looking for inspiration I think I’d go to the met plod discipline tribunal which is now open to the public .

    There was a piece in one of the lefty papers describing cases across a couple of days – the sheer ineptitude – bullying – stupidity of some plod – leading to their career demise could be worthy of a series or 10 – it’s a long way from ‘morse’..


    • Fedup2 says:

      I wonder if Starmers people are wondering whether it’s a good idea for him to have a ‘photo op’ with an old American man who thinks he is the president ? Maybe the captions will write themselves .
      Perhaps the real prize is a picture with Martin Luther Obama …

    Keep buying Chinese plastic – “Belarus’s government said the drills “will allow … the laying of a foundation for further development of Belarusian-Chinese relations in the field of joint training of troops”.”


  49. MarkyMark says:

    Labour’s first steps will:

    Deliver economic stability with tough spending rules, so we can grow our economy and keep taxes, inflation and mortgages as low as possible.

    Cut NHS waiting times with 40,000 more appointments each week, during evenings and weekends, paid for by cracking down on tax avoidance and non-dom loopholes.

    Launch a new Border Security Command with hundreds of new specialist investigators and use counter-terror powers to smash criminal boat gangs.

    Set up Great British Energy, a publicly-owned clean power company, to cut bills for good and boost energy security, paid for by a windfall tax on oil and gas giants.

    Crack down on antisocial behaviour, with more neighbourhood police paid for by ending wasteful contracts, tough new penalties for offenders, and a new network of youth hubs.

    Recruit 6,500 new teachers in key subjects to set children up for life, work and the future, paid for by ending tax breaks for private schools.

    Mission-driven government

    So, as well as a new administration with new priorities, Britain needs a new approach: mission-driven government.

    “to cut bills, create jobs and deliver security with cheaper, zero-carbon electricity by 2030, accelerating to net zero.”
