How could it be that Peter Hitchens agrees with me?

19 April 2018

Hitchens Nails Andrew Neil


Peter Hitchens called the main stream media, including the BBC, for acquiescing to hearsay evidence, citing historical precedent of unjust past wars pursued on false premise: Suez, Iraq, Libya to name but three.


Andrew Neil and his panel of Priti Patel and Alan Johnson were all three missile-launch justifiers; each in turn attempted to question Hitchen's motivation as if that would make their blind faith in inconclusive evidence, more sustainable.


Since we speculated on these pages that the missiles launched were a futile gesture, the BBC  has for the first time belatedly considered that this might have been the case.


Newsnight 19th April also considered the premise,

3 April 2018  Daily Question 

Who are The Wrong Jews?






According to a BBC Andrew Neil tweet, Jews who agree with Jeremy Corbyn and support Palestinian rights, are "nutters."


Andrew Neil once paid a holocaust denier a fortune to publish his antisemetic story. That happened when Neil was working for Rupert Murdoch at The Sunday Times.


By Andrew Neil's own very high standards and example, Andrew Neil is an anti-Semite picking on The Wrong Jews.  


If Andrew Neil were a Labour Party member he would be suspended by the Party immediately, then investigated and if found to be anti-Semitic, he who would be expelled.


However, Andrew Neil is not a Labour member, he is a Tory and a class A hypocrite that works for the BBC where he is free to smear and accuse Jeremy Corbyn and be a an utter prick with abundant #BBCBias as if that were acceptable in any way whatsoever.

I apologise for this

Offensive Image


1 April 2018  Daily Question 







So, why am I more offended by Andrew Neil

bringing this Mear One mural to my attention

than I am by the mural itself.

Jeremy Corbyn did not draw my attention to the offensive Mear One mural. It was certainly intended to be offensive, but it didn't offend me because I didn't see it until the BBC made me look at it.


I subscribe to the BBC and therefore it was there, for me to see and for me to be offended.


BBC This week March 29th


Andrew Neil was particularly keen for me to not only see it but to be fully aware of what it intended to represent.


Because I am a fool he told me it was obvious, and in case it was not completely obvious, he made me look at it a bit longer until I realised that it was not my fault but that Jeremy Corbyn was responsible for any offence directed at me.


So, why am I more offended by Andrew Neil bringing this mural to my attention than I am by the mural itself.


I am now aware of the highly motivated Campaign Against Anti-Semitism and I notice that they are highly motivated to pedantically catalogue every act of politically motivated Anti-Semitism however tenuous that act might be. No Anti-Semitic stone is usually unturned by the CAA but this outrageous Mear One Mural somehow escaped their attention.


I refuse to publish the image but I offer a similarly offensive image that may certainly cause intended offence.


There are less offensive claims of Anti-Semitism on the CAA website and I will be offended if I am not blacklisted.  


 And if so, I apologise for lacking chutzpah.   more to come

After a reasonably civilised discussion about anti-Semitism, and what else these days, what did Claire Perry say about Richard Burgon, on 


That he was 

"Fervently Anti-Semitic,"




Live on BBC Daily Politics.

Where did that come from?

Apparently Claire Perry had been expecting Richard Burgon to be embarrassed by Andrew Neil when he read out loud what the Daily Mail had said what Richard Burgon had allegedly said, and as if it were true.

"That is not my view," he said.

"Why would I say that?"

One for the lawyers?

 #muso What Next?

but still under construction.....


25 March 2018  Daily Question 

What is The Truth about

The AntiSemite Spy

and his

Vegetable Plot?





Jeremy Corbyn’s character has been examined like no other politician. 

This week he has been branded an anti-Semite, last week a Spy, and The BBC have taken both smears seriously as if either or both charges were ever credible. Both are ludicrous.


Laura Kuenssberg felt she had had to test Jeremy with the notorious “shoot to kill” question, as if it were in any doubt that Corbyn would not be steadfast in defence of anyone who might be in danger of attack.


Kuenssberg and THE BBC were forced to apologise and buried the apology where it could not be easily found.


But I wonder if Kuenssberg would feel obliged to ask Theresa May the same question. In the unlikely event that Laura Kuenssberg would feel obliged to test Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn’s character on equal terms, I would suggest she asks both of them the same following Question....


"Margaret Thatcher was willing to

“Shoot and Kill”

1000 Argentinean conscripts when she gave the order to sink the Belgrano when she knew it was sailing away from the Falklands conflict."


"Would you have given the same order?"


Nobody has any doubt that Jeremy Corbyn and any other worthy statesman or woman would have said emphatically “No” but what reply would Theresa May give?


I wager she would reply, 


“I don’t ask hypothetical questions”


However the question is unlikely to be asked.



said The Sun newspaper.


The BBC is Biased against Jeremy Corbyn and it has been extremely personal from the moment he became leader of The Labour Party.

The whole story has been covered by these pages. The pattern is well established, the evidence is irrevocable.

19 March 2018  Daily Question 


Is there a “pattern” of reactionary BBC Bias smearing Jeremy Corbyn as a would-be “traitor,” and one that is apparently willing to put the British public at risk?


Yes there is?






If we are to conclude that a "pattern of behaviour" is proof, then proof is what we have in spades, that the BBC is biased.



Those Tory Tabloid headlines are already unravelling as we speak.


Notably, Owen Jones embarrassed Newsnight live on air. The BBC thought it appropriate to air brush an image of Corbyn with a backdrop of the Kremlin. 

Peter Hitchens for all his sins, including writing for the Daily Mail, and yes, for being  a bit of a pompous arse, wrote with undeniable conviction,  ..


“The treatment of Jeremy Corbyn, both by politicians and many in the media, for doing what he is paid for and leading the Opposition, seems to me to be downright shocking.” 


When Laura Kuensberg misrepresented Jeremy Corbyn on the shoot to kill question, the BBC was obliged to apologise, but did so where it would not be seen or heard.


When the Tory tabloids put out that kind of bullshit, I would expect the BBC to find a measured response and not one that gave such headlines the oxygen of fake credibility.


How keen were the Tories and the BBC to make Jeremy Corbyn the  story in order to avoid his truthful message.


History punishes liars and has already rewarded Jeremy Corbyn for being a statesman doing his job. This will continue.


Meanwile the BBC fake message appears to be that Corbyn is soft on our enemies and hard on #BBCbias .


When was the truth abandoned by the BBC?






9 Mar 2018  Update


Mrs Monk bought a Dog picture from a charity shop with the intention of over painting the canvas it was printed on.

I suggested she took the dog for a walk about town and take a few pictures in different locations.


This was in 1995 and before photoshop was a verb.


A year or so later Tracy Emin upped the concept by taking her embroidered chair about the world and as far, and as grand, as Monument Valley.

I have since photoshopped the Dog to a few other images by way of referencing the earlier images.

Has Conservative Ben Bradley MP







Ben Bradley has avoided High Court libel action by apologising for his libel directed at Corbyn. 

Having accepted what Ben Bradley said was a lie, the MSM who led  Bradly to believe that Corbyn actually sold secrets to Czech spies,  are far from apologetic.


The smears in the Telegraph are still in place.
The smears in the Sun are still in place.
Today The Sunday Express referred to Jeremy Corbyn’s “relationship” that he once “enjoyed” with a “Soviet-controlled spy” as if that were true.

Far from apologetic, they repeat the LIE.

20 February 2018  Daily Question

Why is the BBC taking the

Corbyn Spy Fake News 

story so seriously?






Jo Coburn today on BBC Daily Politics seemed to go out of her way

to give oxygen and credibility to this bullshit Sun and Daily Mail story. 


BBC Daily Politics is a "political voice" whether the BBC want it to be or not and the BBC is culpable for what others say on their programmes, and for what the BBC says or fails to say. 


And if what is said  is complete bullshit in plain sight and hearing of all reasonable viewers, then the BBC has the burden of correction, and if not they might adopt the age old laudable notion of the waving of the sword of truth. 


Fortunately, Britons are onto BBC Bias in ever increasing numbers.


Bless those good people.


The Sun and the Daily Mail are free to sue me for impugning

their reputation if they had ever established one worth defending.


Foreign tabloid oligarchy media: The Sun and Daily Mail to name but two are publishing  shamelessly political fake trash and in turn their views are peddled daily for all through the conduit of retailers; Sainsbury Waitrose and all others who are complicit in the lies.


Fortunately, Britons are onto it in ever increasing numbers.

Why did the BBC Sunday Politics not show the footage of the white shirt muscle man punching a woman in the face?


Could it be that it was because he was a Jacob Rees-Mogg supporter and that would not sit well with the BBC anti Corbyn message.

Is The BBC Biased?

Give Over





 Theresa May is so eager to distance the government from the Carillion scandal by claiming that the Government was the "customer" and not the "manager" of Carillion.

An extract of PMQS last Wednesday was broadcast on BBC Sunday Politics today allowing May to make that point as if it were true.


In fact the Government is responsible for the "management" of the contract that allowed this scandal to happen and the Government are wholly responsible for abuses that arise from the shortcomings of that contact.


An extract of Jeremy Corbyn's response to May was also televised on BBC Sunday Politics.


Corbyn called the Carillion contract "a costly racket of the relationship of the Government with Carillion", but his actual words were cut at the word "racket" so as not to include his accusation of blame attributed to the Government.


Don't tell me the BBC is not biased.

To sum up Austerity in

As per Knee Replacements on the NHS,

to be kneedy is to be in need of a knee

and if a knee is "gone" that knee is fucked.


If to ask for a Knee is to be somewhat kneedy
Then to ask for two is to be too far too greedy.


If all cat knees are "gone" then a cat is more kneedy,

but not as kneedy as a kneedy Centipedeee.


Centipedes should not apply for knee replacements

Who Needs Another Expert

on Education?

 #academies  #OrmistonTrust


Toby Young’s New Job as a leading education advisor has been met with widespread derision.


Toby Young is the least suitable "personality", and the most unqualified "expert", to represent the interests of "university students".


Toby Young has the arrogance of a polemicist determined to inflict his own brand of far-right dogma into education.


The last thing education requires is yet another amateur would-be politician with a pet vanity project interfering and undermining professionals with self-serving aggrandisement.


Notwithstanding  Toby Young's experiment with free schools, and he still speaks as if he did not abandon that project, his part was an abject failure.


Furthermore, he is hopelessly unqualified for this new BS job because he is a liar, a homophobe, a misogynist, a bigot, and a fool.


When you screw up and apologise, as did Young, Hunt, and May this very day, that does not mean that they might carry on as if they all deserve another chance. That means all three should resign, resign and resign, and enter a suitable monastery, a nunnery, or rehab and never reappear before any eye, nose, or ear that might otherwise be offended.


Boris Johnson, regards all of that so very amusing, but then he would.


Get thee to a nunnery.
