    I didn’t say it wasn’t correct. Much of it probably is albeit in need of a bit of evaluation as most Brexit cheer stories are. It’s you copy and pasting a series of headlines when you’re completely incapable of actually discussing anything to do with Brexit that doesn’t entail wrapping yourself in a flag with the rest of the weirdos that is laughable.

    Actually, no. Let’s take your salmon headline for example. A fine headline you’ve probably seen on Twitter. Read the actual article for 30 seconds and while volumes are up, which is no doubt good, the value per tonne is heavily reduced as a consequence of the delays caused by Brexit. The exporters are having to contend with millions in totally unnecessary extra costs to shift that tonnage.

    The headline is great though and you only really care about the headline so that’s fine.

    This is a Russian child model, and confirmed as very much alive.

    What hope is there when a member of the House of Lords tweets blatant lies like this for the hard-of-thinking to lap up?

    An excoriating interview given by Lord Grade on dishonesty and cover ups in BBC journalism in light of the Bashir frauds and subsequent BBC inhouse investigation "clearing" him.

    "We are never wrong" is the only BBC response given to criticism, and the culture is rotten according to Grade.

    Now there's a ****ing surprise.

    Penny Mordaunt Fact Check: Who Funds Angela Rayner?



    Penny Mordaunt’s mauling of Angela Rayner in the Commons yesterday afternoon took Westminster by storm, with both Rayner and Mordaunt even trending on Twitter. Given it was so watched, Guido thought a fact check of one of Mordaunt’s main claims was in order:

    “If you were to take every single MP she’s made an allegation about this afternoon, and you were to look at all the political donations they have received since the pandemic started (since January 2020), if you were to add them all up; if you were to double them – no, Mr Speaker, if you were to quadruple them – you would still just about match what the hon. Lady herself has received in the same time period.”

    Referring back to Ange’s speech, she named the PM, the Home Secretary, the Health Secretary and Lord Lister, whose total declared takings since January 2020 benchmark amounted to just £4,660 for Boris and £55,586 for Hancock. Surprisingly, Priti doesn’t have a single register of interest entry…

    Rayner’s coffers on the other hand have been working overtime. Since January 2020 Angie has received:

    • 21 January: £50,000 from Waheed Ali
    • 22 January: £1,683.21 from GMB
    • 22 January: £47,227.58 from GMB
    • 26 January: £1,000 from Simeon Honore
    • 30 January: £25,000 from GMB
    • 31 January: £10,000 from Rajesh Agrawal
    • 4 February: £10,000 from USDAW
    • 11 February: £25,000 from CWU
    • 25 February: £2,000 from Mohammed Imran
    • 4 March: £25,000 from Trevor Chinn
    • 5 March: £10,000 from Intro Developments Ltd
    • 5 March: £25,000 from Martin Taylor
    • 12 March: £2,500 from Simeon Honore
    That’s a whopping £234,410.79, and – as Penny pointed out – the same as four times the total takings of the government figures she was pointing the finger at (£240,984). Penny had Rayner bang to rights…

    Don't know about the Mods - it's Mrs RangerCol you need to worry about that when you make appreciative comments like that about certain members of the Labour Party

    Don't worry yourself.

    Mrs Rangercol doesn't take these things seriously.
    I'd advise you to do the same.

    A whole lot of hypocrisy in evidence over the Bashir affair, not least from our Prime Minister. What Bashir did was wrong and he should have been sacked for it, but Diana's words were her own - Bashir didn't make them up (something Johnson was actually sacked for doing). Johnson also built a journalistic career making up lies about the EU for the Telegraph.

    Diana (who would presumably these days be described as an attention-seeking gold-digger) would have said what she said irrespective of who was conducting the interview.

    Bashir alleged to Diana and her brother that British intelligence and Rupert Murdoch were spying on her, and produced false bank accounts to Charles Spencer to prove it. This made Diana even more paranoid and vengeful, thinking the Royal Family were after her. The BBC therefore added fuel to the flames. But the really serious conduct was a BBC whitewash review later. There's likely to be more to come out on this story.

    The Johnson stuff is whataboutery and we've heard it all before. This story is not about Boris Johnson. It's about the dishonesty within the BBC.

    Think Goldie has this spot on.
    What Bashir did was wrong, illegal and preyed on a very vunerable young woman. He seemed to do it basically off his own back.


    The bigger scandal here is that when BBC found out about it they did nothing much, swept it under the carpet, ignored it..and in fact rehired him later on.

    The forging is Bashirs sin.
    The cover up is the BBCs
