More from Starkey. Sound quality not the best. He even has a solution to Sigs BBC issue, but I won't spoil it. :LOL:


Let the BBC wither on the vine, just like any other unpopular commercial enterprise, just as it should be. Starky is rather excited by it all, good man 🤣

It will be interesting to see the BBC revenue figures when they are published next and compare them to previous years, that will be a good measure of how many people have been cancelling their TV licenses over recent years.

"The EU concept" was always doomed to failure. The original Common Market which we joined was an excellent idea.

What is doomed is this old cold war, with US still conducting it self like it's 1960s all over again.

Germany and Russia have reacted angrily to sanctions approved by US President Donald Trump on a gas pipeline between the two countries.

Is Megxit a consequence of Brexit?

Racism seems to be one of the words branded about.

Funny how people dishing it don't seem to think it is so.

People on the receiving end feel it so but now get called out for whining when raising it.

Brave new world awaits us. :unsure:

Hard to conflate Megxit with Brexit, I can't find a link!

Socialists like to play the race card at every opportunity and attribute it to anything that goes wrong, it's one reason why they will never get near power.

The most racist racists in Britain are socialists/marxists, the Labour party has the highest number of MPs being investigated for racism by the police, they haven't managed to sort out their antisemitism and appear to be carrying on as if nothing ever happened.

The anti-semitism issue can't be disposed of by Labour because its implicit in their modern political belief systems and their Marxist ideology.

Corbyn showed himself unwilling to deal with allegations of anti-semitism within the party through the Shami Chakrabarti fiasco. He appointed her to lead an "independent inquiry" into the issue in April 2016. She almost immediately joined the Labour Party. So much for her independence.

Chakrabarti reported her findings at the end of June. In July before her report's recommendations had been put into action, she was proposed by Corbyn as the sole Labour-nominated candidate for a peerage, She of course gladly accepted the peerage, compromising further her own ability to support her own report's recommendations. She went on to offer incomplete disclosure over her peerage offer's timing to the Parliamentary Select Committee.

The Committee concluded that with insufficient evidence of anti-semitism within Labour they would have to drop the matter. Notwithstanding that it was Chakrabarti herself who was tasked with finding the evidence, so it was no wonder they had to back down.

What a stitch-up.

Hopefully and good riddance. And sod all to do with racism.

Some of us knew she was trouble as soon as she arrived on the scene. As for Harry, i'm afraid he's easily lead and a bit soft in the head, as borne out by his recent antics.

If the UK is guilty of One thing, it's being too accommodative of others and others cultures. I suspect other countries are guilty of it also. As has been pointed out previously, when Brits travel they want to go experience difference and other cultural ways, not some flavourless harmogenised soup the same, or worse, than they can get over here!

. . .And sod all to do with racism. . .
I've been trying to get my head around this of late as it's only fairly recently come into my obit to fill the vacuum left by all things brexit related!

I watched three YouTube videos yesterday (work on the fence suspended due to inclement weather) - all clips from breakfast TV - in which guests - all 'women of colour' - made the accusation that the press had been racist in their treatment of Megan and that Britain as a whole is a racist country. The thing is, save for one unfortunate Tweet by Danny Baker, (the exception that proves the rule?), none of them could produce any examples or explain why/how the press were being racist. The guest in the video above - Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu - tries to get around the problem by saying: "It's not the job of black people and ethnic minorities to educate white people on racism that's perpetrated by white people." IMO, that just isn't good enough; at best it's a lame excuse to curtail criticism of anyone of colour and, at worst, it goes a fair way down the road of shutting down free speech.

Yeah, racism is an easy card to play to deflect from legitimate criticism etc. On the other hand, if you are racist unless you pay peoples’ ethnicity no more regard than, say, the colour of their eyes then we‘re probably all guilty, whether we are white, black or whatever.

That the media and others should draw attention to Meghan’s “mixed race” would be considered racist by that definition.

The problem for the Left and others who can't get majority support is that they have to find another way of pursuing their agenda. Racism is just another one of their tools that can be weaponised and legitimised at the expense of those who have a genuine grievance. Harry & Megan's case is nothing to do with racism: they are just a pair of spoilt brats who've been given everything they asked for but are still not satisfied.

Candice Owens (us congress) touches on this quite well. (FF to 2.30)
