The Football Super League and how the West was Lost

I have just been listening to BBC Radio 4.  What struck me this morning was that RT or China Global Television Network are truly less anti-Western and anti-British than the BBC.  The most striking bit of news was that JP Morgan, the huge US investment bank, was financing a new Super League of twelve  clubs consisting of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham from England and AC Milan, Atletico Madrid,...

Political Thoughts – finally, completely deplatformed

Google, Twitter etc. use AI to ensure that content they despise is not given coverage. The method Google uses is "shadow banning" where results for banned websites are listed hundreds of pages down in any results listing or fail to appear at all. Twitter uses a variety of shadow banning tools that make tweets from proscribed users nearly invisible.The article that got me almost fully banned from Google was my criticism of the Bilderberg Group. ...

For “lobbying” read “corruption”

The mainstream media are currently in a feeding frenzy about "lobbying".  Lobbying is where an individual or group gain access to a politician to put forward their viewpoint.  As individuals we can go to our local constituency surgeries and talk directly to our MPs.  However, groups such as Unions and large businesses generally demand access to those ministers and civil servants who can take decisions.A classic example of big business "lobbying" might be where a couple of US Investment banks...

Great news: UK-EU Trade heading in the right direction.

Large economies like the EU Single Market all tend to produce goods and services near the financial centre of the economy or, in the case of very large countries, in two or three economic centres.  Having been produced centrally the goods are then sometimes finished locally or distributed from local warehouses.  The regions become poor and require regional aid and the centre becomes ever richer.This pattern has been happening strongly in the EU and countries such as Greece often accuse the...

Is Anglophobia the fastest growing hate crime?

Anglophobia has always existed in the UK.  Not only do the Scots and Irish profess a dislike for the English but the English upper classes detest poor English people.  Unfortunately the Director of Public Prosecutions takes the view that hate crimes against the English are permissible.One of the most striking examples of anglophobia in the past year was by Helena Kennedy in a program called "The Anatomy of Guilt" in which the English were held...

Are the Troubles Returning to Northern Ireland?

On the 23rd February, at the height of the transient post Brexit freight blockages between NI and the rest of the UK, the BBC reported loyalists saying that "There is "palpable anger" among unionists over the NI Protocol but loyalists are not thinking of a return to violence"  (BBC).  So why is there so much violence in April?A young protestant man gave an interview on BBC television news yesterday where he said that the violence was not because of the border issues, it was because the...

Something must be done about the BBC

Today the BBC treated us to a morning of terror about the AstroZeneca vaccine killing people.  The true news was that about 18 people may have died from rare blood clotting disorders among over 20 million people given the vaccine. The 18 people is an un-adjusted number that includes natural deaths from blood clotting.  According to a Danish study: "Here, based on pre-pandemic incidence rates from the entire Danish population, we report...

Are Astra Zeneca Vaccine Reactions a Scapegoat for the EU?

I once spent several months operating the adverse reactions database for a major pharmaceutical company.  Most drugs and vaccines had at least one death associated with their use such as anaphylaxis or skin rashes so terrible that the patient died.  When millions of people are exposed to any novel substance a very few will react adversely and some of these will die.  The important issue is whether the drug etc. is of significant benefit despite a very low risk of severe adverse reaction.Most...

How evil is the BBC?

The BBC is trusted to provide an in-depth and unbiased account of the news.  Does it fulfill this brief?National and Public Service Broadcasters use four main techniques to impose bias. The most frequent bias is the omission of news from one side of a debate so that it appears as if a particular view is obvious. Another technique is anecdotal reporting in which they use people like glove puppets, interviewing erudite academics on one side of an issue and fools on the other side. A subtler...

Does my bum look big in this?

Two events grabbed my attention this week.  The first was a friend who disparaged religion and said that the important thing was to live a good life.  The second was the introduction to a nineteen sixties comedy program by its script writer in which he said that in those days some of the cast were gay but no-one was bothered about laughing.The nineteen sixties was the great liberation from guilt in the UK.  Prior to the nineteen sixties people were indoctrinated to feel guilty about...
