Barcelona attack: What we know so far per BBC News

If you rely on the BBC for your news then you're not being well informed. This BBC report as at 20:57 described as telling us what we know so far, doesn't tell us the name of the suspect who is named elsewhere. Nor does it mention that as at  15:30 PM EST: The Islamic State has taken responsibility for the Barcelona attack, speaking through its Amaq news agency.

The BBC's desperation to keep the British public from knowing that this was another Islamist terrorist attack is palpable.

Barcelona: Van rams crowds in Ramblas tourist area per BBC News

This BBC report on the Barcelona incident starts thus:

'A van has ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's famous Las Ramblas tourist area.

People were killed and injured as the vehicle sped along the pedestrianised area, sending many fleeing for cover in shops and cafes.

Witnesses said the van had deliberately targeted people before coming to a stop.'

Bizarre, did witnesses really say that the van deliberately targeted people? A van is an inanimate object, the driver of the van targeted people. Why do the BBC persist in pushing this ridiculous narrative?

Barcelona: Van hits crowds in Ramblas tourist area per BBC News

'A van has ploughed into crowds in Barcelona's Ramblas tourist area.Spanish police say several people have been injured in a "massive crash", while emergency services are urging people to stay away from the area around Plaça Catalunya.

Reports from the scene say people are taking cover in nearby shops and cafes.

Reuters news agency reports that emergency services have requested the closure of local metro and train stations.

Marc Esparcia, a 20-year-old student who lives in Barcelona, told the BBC: "There was a loud noise and everybody ran for cover. There were a lot people, lots of families [at the site], this is one of the most visited sites in Barcelona.'

More here You can almost hear the BBC praying that's it's not another Islamist attack.

Why won't President Donald Trump Disavow Racists?

Oh you mean he did disavow racists over and over again. Maybe the question should be - why won't the media report that President Donald Trump has been disavowing racists for at least 17 years?

Whitewashed: Anti-Semitism in the Labour Party

A must read book but unlikely to be reviewed by the BBC whose incessant anti Israel propaganda has done more to increase anti Semitism in the UK than almost anything else and whose support for the Labour Party is unyielding.

'Whitewashed focuses on events in Britain, but it throws a spotlight on left wing antisemitism everywhere. It compellingly shows how left wing hostility to Israel has an ongoing and painful impact on Jews in the Diaspora.

In spring 2016 the British Labour Party decided it had a problem with antisemitism so its leader Jeremy Corbyn asked Shami Chakrabarti to lead an inquiry. Since Corbyn became Labour leader, left wing antisemitism has crawled out of its usual hiding places; in many cases people seem unable to understand the harm they are causing.

Made public here are some powerful witness statements written by individuals to the Shami Chakrabarti Inquiry into antisemitism and other forms of racism. Our witnesses do not see evidence that their submissions were heeded. Not one of them is acknowledged by name at the end of the report. The inquiry was published June 30, 2016 and concluded that there was no evidence of systemic antisemitism in the Labour Party. In July 2016 Chakrabarti accepted a peerage from Jeremy Corbyn and now sits in the House of Lords as Baroness Chakrabarti.

The Labour Party has always been the traditional home for Jewish voters. The Jewish Chronicle reported, May 2016, in the aftermath of the Inquiry's findings, that this support had collapsed to just 8.5 percent. The same survey showed that almost 87 per cent of British Jews felt that 'there is antisemitism among Labour's members and elected representatives'.

Also in the book:
Mark Gardner's eye witness account of the dramatic events at the launch;
Howard Jacobson's damning analysis of the inquiry;
Part of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee, Antisemitism in the UK, October 2016 which calls the Chakrabarti Report 'ultimately compromised';
An extract from Paul Johnson's 'A History of the Jews' explaining the roots of left wing antisemitism and its links with Israel.

The outstanding contributions range from grass roots activists to professors, both Jewish and not Jewish.

The book is part of The Whitewashed Project,, where you can buy the paperback of Whitewashed. Through this website you can link to the explosive documentary film, Whitewashed, in which David Hirsh, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, University of London, interviews witnesses featured in the project and which gives more background. The film is produced by Judith Ornstein and made by J-TV. It can be also be viewed on
Baroness Ruth Deech calls the project 'ground-breaking'. '

Russia Trump collusion?

"Trump Disavows Racists Over and Over Again - For Years..."

The accepted media narrative is that President Donald Trump is a racist, happy to have the support of the KKK and similar. The truth is at variance with the narrative but don't expect the BBC to stop pushing their narrative.

How Obama Handled Racial Nationalist Attack per The Daily Caller

'In July of 2016, an avowed black nationalist murdered five police officers during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Dallas, Texas. The act of violence was well-planned and was motivated entirely by the hate-filled ideology of the shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson.

With several officers dead by the hand of a committed black nationalist, one might think the Obama administration may have considered the assassinations domestic terror and launched an investigation into groups associated with this ideology.

Not at all.Barack Obama condemned the shootings, but he did not call out or even allude to Johnson's hateful views. He did, however, blame "powerful weapons" for the violence.

In her statement on the shooting, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch exploited the tragedy to push for gun control and praise the cause of Black Lives Matter. No mention of Johnson's ideology or "hate" in was made in her statement, but she did manage to directly name multiple cases of police-involved shootings — all after cops were the ones murdered.'

More media double standards all over the BBC and most of the mainstream media.

"World Cup pay gap: Here's why it's justified" The Factual Feminist

The Factual Feminist is cool and factual which is why her arguments will be ignored by the likes of the BBC.

Home - BBC News - "it's an act of terror"

As soon as I read that BBC headline I knew that the linked article couldn't be about any recent Islamist terror attacks around the world. I was, of course, correct:

''It's an act of terror, it's a hate crime'

A friend of Heather Heyer who was killed in the Charlottesville car attack has spoken to the BBC.'

Men's 4x100m relay at World Championships - BBC misinformation

A fantastic run, I was shouting for the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team from the first change onwards.

However, the BBC keep telling us that the British squad have just run the 3rd fastest 4x100m time ever. This is not true, here are all the faster times

I make that 13 faster times. There are multiple Jamaican and US squads and one Jamaican/Antiguan squad representing Racers Track Club.

Please BBC get it right.

Asian grooming gangs are Muslim says Trevor Phillips - No Shit Sherlock

'Britain's former race tsar Trevor Phillips today called for the authorities to admit that most men in sex grooming gangs are Muslim.

He launched an angry attack on the refusal of the establishment - including the BBC - to properly describe the men behind the sickening crimes.

The former chairman of the equality and human rights commission said our elites have replaced their old fear of being labelled racist with a new bogey - the 'charge of Islamophobia'.

He said the UK must urgently wake up and admit the true nature of the grooming gangs to prevent other, vulnerable girls being targeted.'

More stating the obvious here but not on the protect Islam at all costs BBC.

Left-Wing Magazine The Nation Report Puts 'Russian Hack' DNC Narrative in Freefall per Breitbart

'A bombshell report published Wednesday by avowedly liberal news magazine The Nation may have put the last nail in the coffin of the "Russian hack" narrative that has dominated the mainstream media's coverage for the last year.

Author Patrick Lawrence assembles the findings of months of investigation by forensic computer experts and former NSA officials to conclude, quite categorically, what Breitbart News and other independent media outlets have suggested for nearly a year: there was no hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by the Russian government or anyone else last summer. An internal leaker is a much more likely source of the confidential internal DNC emails that upended the presidential campaign season when they became public last June.'

This whole story is fascinating and you should read the whole piece at Breitbart  Just don't expect to read anything about this on the institutionally anti President Donald Trump BBC where support for the Russian hacker story is all but unquestioning.

The BBC hit new lows in this report on events in Paris

Not only does this BBC report start with the, usual for the BBC, phrased line:
'A car has struck a group of soldiers in Paris, injuring six, two seriously, police say.' 

Those cars can be so dangerous, best ban them. But further down the report is this sub-header:
Car 'lay in wait'
And then the follow-up lines:
'He said a vehicle had been waiting in the road for the soldiers to emerge as they came on duty.

"It was a BMW which accelerated very quickly the moment they came out."'
Do the BBC do this deliberately? What do they hope to gain by obfuscating what happened?

Obviously we don't know what happened in this incident. But I know what the BBC are hoping wasn't the cause.

Chronology of U.S.-North Korean Nuclear and Missile Diplomacy per Arms Control Association

Amid all the talk of the situation regarding North Korea and nuclear weapons there's very little interest in how we got here. The BBC are trying to use this crisis to show that their current hate figure, President Donald Trump, is to blame. However a perusal of this chronology chronic shows that weaknesses shown by previous US presidents, mostly by Bill Clinton (partly assisted by former President Jimmy Carter) lead us to this position.

However blaming Democrats isn't an option for the BBC so don't expect that sort of analysis.

As an aside, I confidently predict that just as Bill Clinton's policies led to North Korea developing nuclear weapons and threatening the USA, Barack Hussein Obama's policies will lead to Iran being in a similar position within another decade. The left never learn that appeasement and weakness in the face of vile regimes leads not to peace in our time but to bigger problems only shortly into the future.

Meanwhile the BBC cheerlead for US Democrat presidents whatever they do, thus hiding the truth from their public.

"Dr Roy Spencer - 97% Concensus is Bogus"

The sort of information that the warmists at the BBC will never report.

Is the EPA IUsing Bad Data?

A fascinating claim in the Daily Caller that certainly won't be reported by the BBC.

'One of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) longest and most successful air pollution standards is based on a taxpayer-funded study plagued by "data fabrication and falsification," according to a veteran toxicologist.

Toxicologist Albert Donnay says he's found evidence a 1989 study commissioned by EPA on the health effects of carbon monoxide, which, if true, could call into question 25 years of regulations and billions of dollars on catalytic converters for automobiles.

"They claimed to find an effect when there wasn't one," Donnay told The Daily Caller News Foundation. "They even fabricated the methods they used to get their results."

"They were spinning this to give EPA what they wanted and commissioned," Donnay said. "They reported results that could not have come from human beings."'

Very very interesting but obviously not to the green agenda propaganda organisation that is the BBC.

USA women's team suffer 5-2 loss to FC Dallas' U-15 boys as won't be reported by the BBC

'The USA women's football team were convincingly beaten by a team of adolescents in a embarrassing defeat for the world champions.

They were roundly outplayed, losing 5-2 against FC Dallas Under-15s academy side who took full advantage of their big day. 

The players did not appear to allow the display to subdue their spirits and posed with the opposition for photos after the game. 

Jillian Ellis' team were preparing for an international friendly but the humbling by a group of youngsters did not seem to affect their performance on a bigger stage. The USA ran out 4-0 victors against Russia... '

In other words a womens international football team can be beaten by an under-15 boys team. It's actually happened before, when the Australian women's team also lost to an under 15 boys team.

The BBC have decided that for reasons of equality women's football should be portrayed as equivalent to the men's game. It's not, the best women's team on their best day might compete with an English division 2 team, maybe.

Similar is true of cricket where the women's team are portrayed as wonderful cricketers who could compere the men. In reality the top women fast bowlers manage to reach 70mph delivery speed. That's the speed of a international men's fast bowler's surprise slow delivery. A good men's fast bowler will be in the mid to high 80s. Which means that those wonderful women batters might look less wonderful when facing real pace.

I can think of very few sports where women can compete with men on an even basis. Three day eventing is one.

The last time I posted an article similar to this, albeit about athletics, I was called a serial, because apparently stating facts is sexist.

The Mail's report is here  but you won't find a BBC report anywhere.

Israelis are "human garbage"

This sort of speech is not unusual from many Muslims in the Middle East and beyond, not that you'd know if you relied upon the instititionally anti-Israel BBC for your news.

'Ahmad Daqamseh, a Jordanian soldier who murdered seven Israeli schoolgirls and wounded six others in the infamous March 13, 1997 "Island of Peace massacre," was released from a Jordanian prison after serving 20 years. Upon his release, Daqamseh made a short statement to the Al-Jazeera network, in which he referred to Israelis as "human garbage vomited into our midst by the world's nations." He added that this "human garbage" must be removed, "whether by burning or by burying." The Al-Jazeera network aired the comments on March 12.

Ahmad Dagamseh: "The [Israelis] constitute human garbage, vomited into our midst by the world's nations. Unfortunately they have come to the purest land after Mecca and Medina. This garbage must be removed, whether by burning or by burying. The day will come, Allah willing. If it is not done by our generation, Allah willing, the generations to come will burn this human garbage."'

Not answering the question 18 times. Imagine if it was President Donald Trump who had done this rather than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Imagine that President Donald Trump or Prime Minister Theresa May failed to answer a simple question 18 times. The BBC would be headlining this news, playing excerpts from the video over and over again. However as it was the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, not a word on the BBC, because Justin Trudeau is a BBC favourite, along with Hillary Clinton and any Labour politician that they think might win an election for the UK Labour Party.

I see sheer arrogance in the way that Prime Minister Trudeau doesn't answer the question, avoiding doing so 18 times. Will anyone actually hold him to account with not cooperating with the Canadian House of Commons. It certainly won't be the BBC.

Do these Huma Abedin emails mean that Hillary Clinton lied? If do, will anything happen?

Do these Huma Abedin emails mean that Hillary Clinton lied? If do, will anything happen? The answer is of course, no. Likewise don't expect any BBC coverage.

News you won't find on the BBC

'A Hamas money laundering ring that funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from officials in Gaza to Hebron via Turkey has been exposed, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) cleared for publication on Thursday.

The complex money-laundering enterprise, which began operating last year, was uncovered in a joint operation by the Shin Bet, IDF and Israel Police, which arrested five Hamas members in the West Bank and identified another operative in Turkey and another in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.

The scheme was run by senior Hamas activist Muhammad Mahed Bader from Hebron who was arrested in June. Bader, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, recruited two other Hamas activists from Hebron, Mus'ab al-Haslom and Taha Othman, who were sent to Turkey to act as couriers under the guise of business trips.'

To BBC News are Jews not an 'ethnic minority'

This BBC report states:

'Two thirds of the stars were male, with the highest paid names including Chris Evans, Gary Lineker, Jeremy Vine and Graham Norton. Claudia Winkleman was the highest paid female star.

The highest-paid stars from an ethnic minority background were George Alagiah, Jason Mohammed and Trevor Nelson - with Mishal Husain the top-earning female.'

Are Jews not from an ethnic minority background? Or does one have to be of a darker skin hue in order to qualify for ethnic minority status? What about Jews of an Iraqi or North African background? Are the BBC guilty of racism here? Or is it that for the BBC Jews are part of oppressive establishment?

Labour selects Councillor Luke Cresswell, who tweeted “Moses must be proud” of supposed genocide, to run in by-election per Campaign Against Antisemitism

'Labour Councillor Luke Cresswell has been selected as the Labour candidate in the Sudbury South by-election. In the past, we have highlighted Councillor Creswell's disturbing tweets, but rather than being disciplined by the Labour Party, it appears that Councillor Cresswell enjoys the Party's continuing support.

In one, he tweeted a blood-drenched Israeli flag accusing Israel of genocide, captioned "Moses must be proud of you". In another tweet, he uses a cartoon to portray Israelis as the new Nazis.

Under the International Definition of Antisemitism, "using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g. claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterise Israel or Israelis" is antisemitic, as it "drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis".'

More here but obviously not on the BBC where protecting the Labour Party from criticism is more important than fighting antisemitism.

A1 road per Wikipedia

This Wikipedia article on the A1 includes this fact that I was not aware of:

'Between the M25 (near London) and the A696 (near Newcastle upon Tyne) the road has been designated as part of the unsigned Euroroute E15 from Inverness to Algeciras.'

The power grabbing EU?

Scientists know about climate change

As I sit in London watching the rain fall as it has for most of July, indeed as it did for much of many recent summers, I remember the certainty with which The Guardian reported in 2006 as fact that:
"Scientists know a lot about how events will unfold...which means that whatever we do, our climate destiny is fixed for the next few decades... Rainfall will decline in the summer and the increased deluges in winter will struggle to replenish thirsty reservoirs because much of the water will run off the baked ground."
Scientists know... climate destiny is fixed... Rainfall will decline in the summer..." It's all rubbish folks; most of these scientists are not predicting based on science, they are designing science to fit the desired predictions.

What about the second part of what "scientists know"? "Rainfall will decline in the summer and the increased deluges in winter will because much of the water will run off the baked ground."
Shall we take a look at reservoir levels in the baked South of England, the area with the biggest potential water problem as demand increases year after year as a result, largely, of population growth? South East Water report the levels at their two largest reservoirs: Arlington Reservoir was 82.9% full on 31 July  (the last day they report levels), Ardingly Reservoir was 85.6%% full on the same date.

What about the South West maybe they are faring worse? Well South West Water are not as up to date as South East Water and they report data up until the week ending 23 July. They report percentage data for their five reservoirs: Roadford, Colliford, Wimbleball, Stithians and Burrator. The figures show that the average storage levels across these five reservoirs was 73.26%. As a comparison it was around 65% in 1995; water shortage getting worse? Does it look as though there are problems replenishing thirsty reservoirs because of the declining rainfall that scientists know about?

How about Severn Trent? They report that for at 31 July storage levels of 71.9%.

I could go on and on but I think that the pattern will be similar across most of the UK regions.

So how about The Environment Agency the body that is so certain about Climate Change that they confidently state on their web site:
"It's an inescapable fact: our planet is warming up. Records show that temperatures around the world have risen steadily since 1900...

Climate change is the biggest environmental challenge facing the world today. We know the Earth's climate does change naturally over a long timescale, but the overwhelming majority of the scientific community now accepts that human activities are causing significant, rapid changes to our climate.

Over the past century, global temperatures have risen - the 10 warmest years on record have all been since 1990. The contribution to global warming from human activity is linked to increases in the amounts of heat-trapping "greenhouse gases" in the atmosphere. As the concentrations of greenhouse gases increase, less heat can escape from the atmosphere, making the Earth warmer. The main greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide, which is released by burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas.


What will happen if we do nothing?

The latest data tells us that some climate change is already inevitable, so we will need to adapt to its impacts. We must plan for more extreme weather conditions: wetter winters with an increased risk of floods, and hotter, drier summers that put pressure on water resources. Sea levels will also rise, increasing the risk of flooding around our coastline."
Maybe these are some of the scientists who know what's going to happen to the climate in the UK. After all they also seem to know that we are going to experience "wetter winters with an increased risk of floods, and hotter, drier summers that put pressure on water resources". Let's look at the Environment Agency's own figures...

The Environment Agency publish their Water Situation for England and Wales figures on a monthly basis but the latest that I can find is for June 2017 not July 2017:

'Rainfall totals for  June were above the long term average (LTA) for the month in most parts of the country and particularly high in parts of northern England. For England as a whole, the June rainfall total was 140% of the 1961-90 LTA.


Reservoir  stocks  decreased  at  the  majority  of reported  reservoirs  or  reservoir  groups.  Overall  reservoir  storage  for  England  is  83%  of  total  capacity,  a  small decrease compared to May.'

So after years of knowing that reservoirs would not be replenished by winter rains we have a situation, as the rain pours off my roof, overall reservoir storage at the end of June is at 83% of total capacity.

Scientists know? I think not.

Palestinians can never be held to account

The Palestinian Authority’s Ambassador to the UN, Riyad Mansour, refusing to condemn the brutal jihadi slaughter of three Israelis during their Shabbat dinner. Instead, he preferred to justify the murders, answering a reporter's question by saying that you shouldn't “expect all Palestinians to be angels” and adding “If people think that the Palestinian people are going to live in that situation without any form of resistance to it, that is not realistic and that is not fair.”

I wonder if the institutionally anti-Israel BBC would agree with those sentiments. They certainly didn't report his comments.

'We've Got To Lie' – BBC Dr. Who Producer Wants To Insert Black People At Points In History

This is from last year but does sum up the BBC's preference for political correctness over the truth.
'It's hugely important, and it's not good when we fail on that. We must do better," he said.
"We've kind of got to tell a lie. We'll go back into history and there will be black people where, historically, there wouldn't have been, and we won't dwell on  "We'll say, 'To hell with it, this is the imaginary, better version of the world. By believing in it, we'll summon it forth'."'
