Forget the BBC: Only Channel 5 Does Proper Documentaries These Days

You don’t get quite the same production values in things like C5’s How the Victorians Built Britain but you don’t get the PC bollocks of Bodyguard and King Arthur’s Britain

Richard Madden in Bodyguard

 

What a load of utter tripe Bodyguard (BBC1, Sundays) was. Admittedly, I came to it late having missed all the sex scenes with Keeley Hawes and Robb Stark, which may have dazzled me in the way they seem to have dazzled many impressionable viewers.Sex scenes in TV drama are a bit like the chaff used by fighters to distract radar-guided missiles. You’re so busy feeling simultaneously awkward and embarrassed and half-titillated, covering your eyes with your fingers, wishing your other half wasn’t watching with you because then it would be proper porn and you could enjoy it, that you sometimes forget to notice what convoluted, implausible tosh the surrounding drama is.

Russian Feminist Pours Bleach on Male Commuters for ‘Manspreading’

Russian feminazi has filmed herself on the St. Petersburg metro pouring bleach on the crotches of men she considers guilty of “man-spreading.”

This unhinged behaviour — apparently, she boasts, the bleach is “30 times more concentrated than the mixture used by housewives when doing the laundry” — has proved too much even for some of her fellow feminists.

Funny, isn’t it, how whenever feminism produces lunatic behaviour some true defender of the faith like Criado Perez has to come along and womansplain to us how this isn’t real feminism?

(It’s a bit like what Marxists do when they look at disaster areas like Venezuela: “That isn’t real socialism,” they explain.)

Corbyn’s Latest Red Terror Plan: Britain Must Double the Number of Onshore Wind Farms

Today, Jeremy Corbyn’s hard-left Labour Party will announce its latest devilish plan: to cover Britain’s green and pleasant land with dark, satanic mills.

According to the Telegraph:

In his keynote speech to the Labour Party Conference, Mr Corbyn will promise to double the number of onshore wind farms in the UK and increase offshore wind power sevenfold.

Mr Corbyn will claim the move would create a “green jobs revolution” that would create more than 400,000 skilled jobs.

Setting out his plans to invest in green jobs, Mr Corbyn will say: “There is no bigger threat facing humanity than climate change. We must lead by example.”

So: we’ve already had it confirmed by one of its delegates that Labour plans to ruin Britain economically, by declaring a General Strike — just like the one that did so well for the country back in 1926.

‘Right Wing Comics Should Tell More Muslim Jokes’ – Says Left Wing Comic

Dara O’Briaiaian, the bald, self-righteous, lefty Irish comedian who never likes to mention his science degree, thinks right-wing comedians should tell more Muslim jokes.

“People go, ‘Oh you don’t make jokes about the Muslims,’ – go for it. Listen, no-one is stopping you from doing all the Muslim jokes you want. You just can’t order me to do the jokes on the topics you want.”

Like a lot of things left-wing comedians say in the course of their tediously right-on routines, this isn’t funny because it’s not true.

It’s theoretically possible, I suppose, that in the left-wing bubble which O’Briaiain and 99 percent of his fellow comics inhabit, everyone is so ill-informed that no one has heard of the Charlie Hebdo massacre — or of what happened when the Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten published some cartoons of Mohammed.

And that is not to mention what Britain’s modern police force would do if someone made offensive comments about Islam on social media.

More likely, though, O’Briaiain is telling what we in the real world would call a “bare-faced lie”.

Suddenly Britain’s Brexit Future Looks a Whole Lot Brighter…

Getty

“Vote Chequers, get Corbyn.”

If that formula is true – and I believe it is – then Britain has just dodged one almighty bullet, the biggest since 1940.

To get an idea of how big a bullet, you need only glance down at Liverpool, where Jeremy Corbyn and his hard-left Labour crew are currently preparing for government at their annual party conference.

They’re so shamelessly anti-Semitic that the few remaining Labour MPs who are Jewish now have to be escorted under police guard.

Peak Davos: BlackRock Prepares to Launch Biggest, Most Globalist, Most Europhile Fund Evah

BlackRock — the dubious investment firm which pays ex-UK Chancellor George Osborne £650,000 a year for one day week, for no obvious reason other than his contacts book — is set to launch the world’s biggest, most rampantly Europhile, and arguably most dangerous investment fund.

The €2.1 trillion Pan European Pension Fund is marketing itself as a benign entity which will help EU citizens fund their pensions privately rather than relying on the state.

But, in fact, it represents a hugely ambitious and terrifying power grab by the globalist financial elite — with potentially disastrous repercussions for free markets, entrepreneurship, and consumer choice.

With €2.1 trillion of assets under management — twice more than its nearest rival, the Norwegian sovereign wealth fund — it will have enormous power to dictate how companies are run, the policies they adopt, and indeed whether some of them thrive or die.

Moreover, it will be able to use its power to bully countries — EU member states especially — that don’t toe the globalist line.

Delingpole: He Did Build That! Obama Caused the 2008 Banking Crash

As we remember the tenth anniversary of the 2008 banking crash which led to the Great Recession, let us not neglect to give credit to the man who, almost more than anyone, made the disaster possible.

Barack Obama.

Strangely, the liberal media – normally the first to praise Obama for even his most modest achievements – has been reluctant to acknowledge his contribution to this most momentous of global events.

But it’s true. As my old friend Christopher Booker notes in his Sunday Telegraph column, it all began with sub-prime mortgages – a disaster almost entirely of the Community Organizer in Chief’s making:

15 reasons to fall in love with Germany and Germans

Be sure to lose your wallet in Germany. Photo: Getty

Things I learned about the Germans after a fortnight living as a non–tourist in Frankfurt:

1. Germans, and Germany generally, are among the world’s most underrated things. True they are not so adept at wit, snark, banter, jocularity or general frivolity. But they are kind, welcoming, generous and unlike, say, the French, charmingly grateful when you attempt to speak their quaint, guttural, impossibly inflected language even though — stimmt! — they speak yours so much better.
2. Here’s what happened when I lost my wallet.

Delingpole: The Police Don’t Need ‘Banter Training’ – But Women Definitely Do…

British police officers are to be given ‘banter training’ – in order to teach them about the ‘fine line’ between being funny and offensive.

But this is a complete waste of taxpayers’ money because the people leading these courses will be hatchet-faced, Common-Purpose-trained zealots with second class sociology degrees from third rate universities who wouldn’t know what banter was if it bit them on the arse.

And also, because banter cannot be taught. It’s an instinctive, predominantly male skill which can only be developed with experience and practice, first in the playground, later in the pub, or the barracks or the office or the sporting field.

Banter is essentially sublimated combat.

‘Pimples Are In!’ Guardian Alleges Existence of ‘Acne Positivity’ Movement

The Guardian has a new, made-up virtual-signalling trend to tell us about.

Thank goodness nobody actual reads the Guardian any more because otherwise, I imagine, quite a few people would have been put off their hemp-milk porridge breakfasts.

According to the article, spots are suddenly cool, with everyone from Justin Bieber and Lorde to top fashion models celebrating them:
