Look at Peston...

Must we?

It's bad en-UFF having to actually LISTEN to the bizarre twat and his wobbly over-EMPH.........asized and baffling-LY random delivery.

I think I my innocence was shattered and I realised the BBC was no longer a news gathering organisation when they reported on an innocent, young asylum seeker in Germany being injured by an explosion in a bakery. Later it transpired it was a premature explosion of a suicide bomber. Slight difference and twist on the story. As someone has already mentioned, Gunboats to Jersey! or as obliged, Enforcing rule of law for a Crown Dependency.

David Attenborough was thankfully born at the right time to leave some wonderful believable, factual footage behind. Everything else has become, frankly, questionable. Informing and educating? Potentially. Honest/truthful? Unfortunately no longer guaranteed. That's a considered decision, not an accident.

and it is desperately sad- and I am very angry that a bunch of parlour pinks who have never outgrown their University radicalism have been permitted to hi-jack a great British institution.

Fook 'em.

How many forefathers did you have?
The Emperor Charlemagne, in all probability.

According to QI, the number of children Charlemagne had, the number of generations between and the constant doubling of numbers per generation (Geordies, stand fast), on the balance of probability we're all his descendants.

A bit like that gobby Cockernee Deadenders gadgy that's decided he's descended from royalty.
 
And here it is...close the thread:

The national polling puts Conservatives ahead most of the time, but there are matters that exist in local communities which can't be accounted for in national polling.
The parties are flying blind this time around. They haven't been able to campaign on the doorstep due to the pandemic.
Whether it's Hartlepool's MP or Wakefield's council, the Conservatives are hoping to show they can dig further into territory which would have been alien to them a decade ago.
Labour is under pressure to show that under Sir Keir Starmer, they're able to stop the rot.
Whether Nicola Sturgeon can achieve an overall majority in Holyrood, then the UK could be headed for another couple of years of very intense constitutional debate. It could very quickly become Boris Johnson's biggest headache.

"I hope Scotland get their wish, If we, in England got the vote they would"

Yes if The English got a vote on Scotland remaining a part of Uk they would be gone.

Indeed. I stated the same to a Scottish National Socialist and was immediately denounced as an English Nationalist .
The argument that any (English) taxpayer funded jobs would be relocated to England also escapes those that would break up the Union. A good example being the DVLA : how many of its customers reside in Wales ? Switch Englands' licensing to somewhere like Lincolnshire and let them get on with it.
No independent nation could justify locating any civil service roles in another country
 
Stops with me . I'm saving the planet .

Who knows what horrors you shagged in your youth while in your cups. Entirely possible your spawn is out there somewhere, seven fingered, poor eyesight and with a penchant for poo chapeaux.
 
Nice to wake up in the morning to an appalled looking BBC and my local labour council(Sunderland) losing 10 seats... Why I love elections is its moments like this which are the metaphorical taking a hammer to the windows of the cosy BBC echo Chamber and in Hartlepool kicking the door in.
 
"Are you going to resign, Ms Kuenssberg ?".

Let's just say it's my job to hold her to account. This seems to suffice when she and others bring their huge intellects to bear on the streets of Westminster.

The BREXIT-fixated luvvies at the Beeb are putting Labour's poor showing at Hartlepool down to having gone too quiet about the UK leaving the EU.

Don't they realise that most people have now moved on and are simply judging the performance of 'grr Boris' and his Government, (who appear to be getting on with the job despite the likes of LK and her calls for resignations and apologies) against that of 'Captain Hindsight' and his 'nothing positive to add' Opposition?

Nor is Britain's silent majority overly impressed with the mainstream media's obsession with petty peripheral issues that may fascinate those in the Westminster village but are of little consequence to the rest of us.

That's odd, I had both Conservative and Labour canvassers around on election day knocking on the door and asking me if I've voted yet and if not, would I consider voting for them
