Public backlash as BBC ponders dumping nationalistic songs from Proms ‘in solidarity with BLM protests’

Shock & dismay in UK as BBC considers excluding patriotic hits from Proms ‘over BLM protests’

When news leaked out of taxpayer funded British broadcaster The BBC that certain patriotic anthems, including Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, which are traditionally performed on the last night of BBC Proms concert season, may be axed from this year’s program.

The Proms or Promenade concerts to use the formal name are a season of musical performances given every summer in London’s Albert Hall, culminating with the tumuluous and tongue in cheek Last Night, a concert that in contrast with much of the highbrow stuff performed throughout the season, is a light hearted celebration of music and its ability to break down barriers and bring people together. It is as much a fancy dress party for 5000 people, who in disparate small groups are there to enjoy themselves. As well as some lighter classical pieces the music performed inclusdes bawdy folk songs, jaunty sea shanties and a chance for the audience to sing along with patriotic songs of the past. This audience participation is one of the most popular features of the concert and closes the season with the songs Rule Britannia, Land Of Hope And Glory, Jerusalem and God Save The Queen.

And nobody takes it seriously. I regularly watch the televised performance and in any year, as the audience wave national flags and sing Rule Britannia, a song about the British Navy’s dominance of international trade routes, people wave national flags, not just The Union Flag, the Cross of St. George, The Scottish Saltire or the Red Dragon of Wales, but The Stars and Stripes, Canada’s Maple Leaf, the tricolours of France, Germany and Italy, Australian Flags, the flags of India, Pakistan, Japan and other Asian nations, African national flags and others. And when the medlody shifts to the rousing Land of Hope and Glory those flags still wave. Land of Hope and Glory is usually interpreted as the ultimate British patriot song but maybe those people singing their hearts out and waving their own national flags are interpreting it a little differently, as I always have:

Land of Hope and Glory, mother of the free,
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee.
Wider still and wider, let thy bounds be set,
God who made the mighty make thee mightier yet.

Well we all hope the land we call our home will be a symbolic parent of free people, and there is nothing offensive about asking how shall we praise this land. By war and conquest, or by spreading the ideals oif tolerance and openmindedness to promote peacefuk coexistence? Wider still and wider let thy bounds be set? Surely that can only be intended to glorify imperialism, you might suggest. But it can, can it not, be taken as a reference toour cultural horizons. Let’s learn from the whole world and encourage them to learn from us. And the last line? Well I don’t do God, but though this has been interpreted as a reference to military and economic might, it could also be taken as a reference to cultural strength, make us a stronger community so that we lose our natural fear of ‘otherness’ and preserve our own culture and values while respecting other, but not surrendering to the unreasonable demands of extremists.

It only takes a little creative thinking to render that short lyric inclusive and likely only to offend those who are determined to be offended on behald of the majority who simply do not care.

*
The most genuinely troubling of the patriotic songs that, though patriotism has been unfashionable for at least fifty years, have become an integral part of each year’s Promenade Concerts’ grand finale, Rule Britannia(sic) is the most overtly patriotic of the Last Night favourites though the phrase ‘Britons never ,never, never shall be slaves does not relate in any way to the Atlantic slave trade even though the song originates from the decades at which that trade was at its height. Correctly titled Rule, Britannia! the comma is all important especially now as linguistics professors in the more ‘woke’ university faculties are claiming grammar and punctuation are racist and oppressive. Composed by Thomas Arne in 1744 for a musical pageant on the reign of King Alfred, often mistakenly credited with uniting the various kingdoms of England under a single ruler, but still one of our greatest historical figures because he fought off who fought off the Viking threat by building up the English navy and extended the influence of Christianity to the pagan kingdoms of The Danelaw (the northern part of England ruled by Scandinavian Kings.

The belligerent lyrics touched a nerve because they chimed with the aspirations of mid-18th-century Britain, which was poised to become a mercantile empire based on sea power and was also constantly at loggerheads with France. This is where thone commas in the original title and fist line become important: “Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!” – meaning, if you don’t rule the waves, and fast, France will crush you.

This year however the jovial mood of the Last Night of the Proms may be spoiled by interference from the appallingly self righteous do – gooderfuckers of the far left, many of whom work for the BBC.   the Times on Sunday has reported these moralistic pokenoses are mounting a campaign to have songs like Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory and possibly the Scottish Hogmanay song Auld Lang Syne banned on the grounds that they are offensive (though who Auld Lang Syne could possibly offend is hard to grasp, apart from the self – elected internet spelling police, Americans who, unable to tolerate English  (i.e. correct) spellings of words like colour and favourite, will cetainly have a massive problem with medieval Scots.

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

 And at midnight, as one year passes and another is born, after a few celebratory drinks, it makes perfect sense.

The official excuse for dropping this feature is that COVID 19, Social distanccing and blah blah means there will be no audience to sing along, but when sports events have been played out in empty stadia, the BBC had no problem about dubbing the soundtrack with audience noise from past events.

Part of the reasoning is that coronavirus restrictions significantly limit the size of the orchestra and the number chorus singers that will be able to safely gather at the Royal Albert Hall, the newspaper explained.

But there is also a feeling among some of the organizers that songs from the glory days of the British Empire would be inappropriate in a year when Black Lives Matter protests are rocking nations on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, Dalia Stasevska, the principal guest-conductor from Finland, is reportedly a strong supporter of the BLM cause, who is “keen to modernise the evening’s repertoire”.

WTF right has a Black Lives Matter supporter to interfere in a British cultural event. This person should be told to stick to the job they have been hired for. Start bringing politics, particularly the toxic politics of the far left into The Proms and in a few years there will be no proms. And it will not be COVID – 19 keeping paying punters away but the sheer boredom of a program selected for political correctness rather than musical excellence.

Minorities ‘See Countryside as a White Environment’, Says BBC

The BBC may have discovered that the countryside… is racist.

Well perhaps some of them do. But judging by the thousands of angry responses to the BBC’s race-baiting tweet, there are a lot of people in Britain – both white and non-white – who object very strongly to having the natural landscape used by the BBC as a political football to advance its woke agenda … Continue reading >>>

Trudeau and BBC trip over their own politically correct credentials

Racism is at best deplorable, to regard any human being as inferior simply because of their etnic or cultural background is the worst kind of snobbery, there are inferior people in every race and culture and as Martin Luther King said, we should judge people on the quality of their character rather than the colour of their skin.
These days of course, racism is not just a question of basic decency but a criminal matter, ‘hate crime’ carries tougher sentences than theft or deception in some nations, and with the way the interpretations of what constitutes racism are changing, it might just be easier to declare yourself a hate-filled bigot, do your jail time and be done with it. For example, snigger (sly or conspiratorial, suppressed laughter,) was until quite recently not exactly an innocent word, but in no way racist.
Now in order to say snigger you must use the racist word embedded within it and so must be a racist. One might as well say all citizens of Scunthorpe are cunts.

Nobody is safe from the Politically Correct Thought Police. Take poor little  Justin Trudeau, Canada’s ultra liberal leader who is definitely is not a racist, and spends every waking moment telling the world through his virtue signalling private life and his politically correct style of governig he’s not racist, most definitely not.

Or to be exact, Justin was not racist, but as been outed as having been retrospectively racist by doing something that was not racist in 2001 but is now in 2001, In that year he was photographed at an Arabian Nights fancy party wearing racist makeup which we now know as ‘brownface,’ but back then was apparently known as ‘a little bit of fun.’

Well, it turns out he was having quite a lot of fun, because hot on the tail of the ‘brownface’ controversy were more pictures of the Canadian Prime Minister in ‘blackface.’ How many times has he done this? Actually he can’t remember. Seriously.

This would be awkward for any politician except Donald Trump, but Trudeau defines himself by being ‘woker than woke’ so it;s worse for him. In response, he’s resorting to the surge tactics perfected by George W Bush during the Iraq War, although instead of a surge in the number of troops, he is surging his wokeness and blaming ‘white privilege’ for his indiscretions. I wonder whether it was his ‘white privilege’ that persuaded him to keep his racist party days quiet while he was asking voters to elect him in 2015?

Another example is the BBC presenter Naga Munchetty (a brown person rather than someone who wears brown face, found herself in breach of its editorial guidelines after she expressed anger at Donald Trump telling four ethnic minority congresswomen to ‘go back’ to their own countries.

Munchetty said on air that she was furious and regarded the US President’s comments as “embedded in racism.” The BBC decided she had not been impartial enough and gave her a telling off. Only then, 150 ethnic minority broadcasters wrote an angry letter to the corporation saying Munchetty should not be required to be impartial about issues of racism and accused the Beeb of “racially discriminatory treatment” of its presenter.

In fact the four Congresswomen have repeated attacked America, called for violence against white people (the extermination of all white males,) and urged people to break the law, saying white laws to not apply to people of colour. This is not how people should behave towards a nation that has welcomed them to its shore but is standard behaviour “back where they came from,” places where murdering your wife because she cooked a lousy dinner.

So, if the likes of Canada’s Woke Wonder get tripped up by these insane rules of liberalism (which by definition should not have rules, only guidelines, then what chance is there for the rest of us? Perhaps the most fun to watch at the moment is the BBC constantly trying, and failing, to disguise its liberal bias while covering up the innate racism of it’s beloved ethnic minority presenters

Farage Shredded By Welsh Ministry Of Truth Newsman?

farage-interview

Under the headline:

Welsh TV reporter shredding Nigel Farage is the best interview you’ll watch today

An obscure far – left website https://inktank.fi reported that while campaigning for the European Parliament elections  in Wales, Nigel Farage was confronted by a BBC Wales reporter, Arwyn Jones, who asked him a question about Brexit, which you’d expect would be easy to answer:

A video clip of the exchange is going slightly viral on far – left, anto democracy sites such as Facebook and Twitter, with opponents of Brexit claiming Farage was ‘shredded’ by the reporter because he could not answer the question, “Can you name one WTO member nation that does not have a trade deal?

Of course Farage didn’t answer, how could anyone answer such a stupid question posed by an idiotic reporter working for an ogranisation tasked by The Fourth Reich’s ruling bureaucracy in Brussels and their puppets in Westminster  with presenting pro – EU propaganda as news. A quick count suggests the WTO has 170 member (give or take a few to allow for counting errors on my part, many of which are island nations with very small population and some of which few of us have ever heard. Eswatini anyone? Apparently, according to the WTO membership list, Eswatini is a WTO member.

(What? No I hadn’t heard of it either until I looked up the list of WTO members.)
Who knows if Eswatini has a trade deal? Who cares?

And who knew Tonga, (pop 100,000 spread across 36 islands) does not have a trade deal with anybody, not even nearby (well less than 1000 miles away) New Zealand, mainly because the Tongan economy is largely non – monetary. Their main sources of foreign exchange are payments from Britain, Australia and New Zealand, a small tourist industry (only the most intrepid would tracel so far to a place with so little to offer,) and remittances to family members from Tongans working overseas. They have no exports.

I only know this because I am at home on my computer with Wikipedia and Britannica Online at my fingertips. Almost every nation on the planet is now a member of the WTO, why would anyone know off the cuff the foreign trade policies of all of them. What is worthy of note is that no EU member states have trade deals either with each other, non EU trading partners or indeed the EU itself. They are bound by EU rules but those do not constitute a trade deal, free or otherwise. The EU itself is a member of the WTO and as its rules demand that member states surrender political sovereignty over trade policy to Brussels, not only the UK, but Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Netherlands and the rest of the member states cannot have any independent trade deals

But the item is reassuring in a way. If the Remainers are so far up shit creek with their efforts to get the Referendum overturned or Article 50 revoked they are celebrating imbecility, there’s hope for Brexit yet.

Prominent Labour Brexiteer REVEALS How EU Will Try Last Minute Switch To Shaft Brexit

German born former Labour MP Gisela Stuart and a leading leave campaigner in the run up to the Brexit referendum,  now Chair of Change Britain, said member states will come in at the very end of the Brexit process to try and salvage some kind of free trade deal, Stuart said on the BBC’s The Daily Politics magazine programme.

She told presenters Andrew Neil and Jo Coburn: “I have negotiated for 15 months with Barnier and that is a typical position.

“The member states come in at the very end and you will not have a deal until five minutes to midnight.

“All kinds of things which you thought were agreed or not agreed will raise their heads again.”

Remain supporting Labour MP Clive Lewis, one of the noisiest scaremongers who predicts catastrophe if we leave the EU on any terms other than those dictated by Brussels was asked if that reassures him.

He said: “No it does not because five minutes before midnight is not like ‘ooh you turn into a pumpkin’ it is queues at ports.

“That is not project fear this is the reality, you have got Jacob Rees-Mogg saying it could be 50years before we begin to feel the benefits of Brexit. My constituents have not got 50years to wait.”

Brexit hardliner Rees Mogg has said no such thing,  what he has said Britain is heading for a no deal exit from the EU, but why would anyone expect a remain supporter to be anything but a lying piece of shit. The whole Remain campaign was built on lies. Their biggest lie, and one of the most frequently repeated is that Britain cannot survive outside a trading bloc like the EU, which they claim is the largest such bloc in the world. Actually, its the only bloc of its kind in the world and it’s membership of 27 nations out of a total of 195 nations, most of which are doing quite nicely than you, suggests that EU membership is not a prerequisite for national survival.

During a phone-in on LBC this week, Mr Rees-Mogg said: “I think we are heading to WTO and I think WTO (World Trade Organisation) is nothing to be frightened of. I think we should carry on negotiating until the end. I don’t think we necessarily need the theatrics of walking away, but the truth is that WTO is likely to be all that they will offer us.”

In fact the trading terms for cross border trades observed by WTO members are not much different to trading terms between EU member states, but do not impose any ‘free movement’ or ‘open borders’ restrictions.

Sir Bill Cash makes BRILLIANT point about May’s Brexit sellout

brexit-brexit-news-chequers-bbc-newsnight-newsnight-chequers-chequers-meeting-chequers-brevet-soft-brevet-1410594Bill Cash (picure: BBC )

Long term opponent of the EU and prominent Brexiteer Sir Bill Cash expressed “deep disappointment” on BBC Newsnight yesterday at Tereason May’s betrayal of her country in presenting a Brexit plan that complies with all EU demands but offers no concesions from the EU on British demands. The plan was agreed after an all day cabinet meeting   at Chequers. Cash responded by claimed that “the law of the land” is not being applied.

Appearing on the news magazine show Cash, Conservative MP and veteran Brexiteer, said some very important questions have been raised by the statement the Government had put out.

He told BBC presenter Evan Davis: “First, does it meet the tests of the referendum itself?

He continued by making a point: “The Repeal Act that went through two weeks ago specifically says that the 1972 Act will be repealed on Brexit day.

“Now when it does that it quite clearly also says you can’t stay in the single market, you can’t stay in the customs union, you can’t stay in the European court.

“That’s what becoming rather disturbing.”

BBC Comedy Boss Says Comedy Should Be Politically Correct Rather Than Funny

5b2cd132dda4c8ed0b8b464e

After the head of BBC comedy Mark Allen commented that TV shows like Monty Python’s Flying Circus could not be made today because they were “too white, too posh and too politically incorrect” and that audiences were tired of the “metropolitan, educated experience” and craved sketch shows and sitcoms with a “sense of place” rather than “six Oxbridge white blokes.”

Ex Python John Cleese has defended the iconic comedy show, calling it “remarkably diverse for its time.”

Referring to Allen as the “head of social engineering,” Cleese defended the diversity credentials of Monty Python, joking that the show would meet the state-funded broadcaster’s diversity targets as it had a “poof” – referring to the late Graham Chapman – and “no slave owners.”

From its beginning in 1969, Monty Python’s Flying Circus ran as a sketch show of half – hour episodes until 1974 was followed up by a series of movies which have since become cult classics including Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty’ Python’s The Meaning of Life, and The Life of Brian, which lampoons the life of Jesus Christ, all of which it must be said, generate more laughter among the BBC’s beloved “16 to 24 demographic” that the parade of sad, self loathing losers paraded in the BBC’s current comedy output. These posh, ethnically and sexually diverse but monoculturally untalented millennials tend to take the stage, spout ten minutes of extreme left wing propaganda, five minutes of middle class angst and conclude with one of three standard punchlines: (1) Aren’t Conservatives horrible, (2) Isn’t Donald Trump horrible, (3) White people are all racists.

Surreal and absurdist in style, Monty Python often pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable at the time, in sketches featuring cross dressing and poking fun at Britain’s class structure.

In the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which mocks Arthurian legend, class-conscious peasants of an “anarcho-syndicalist commune” discuss the merits of constitutionalism with a feudalist King Arthur.

The Life of Brian meanwhile, sees Eric Idle’s Stan, a member of anti-Roman independence movement the People’s Front of Judea, express his desire to “be a woman,” requesting from then on that he be called “Loretta” by his (“or her”) fellow revolutionaries.

Cleese,78, also  accused Allen of being “the latest in a long line who don’t really know what they’re doing,” at the BBC, recalling that executives at the corporation in the 1960s were skeptical of the Monty Python’s merits when the show was first pitched and aired. In the
Python era it was regularly the case that what was hated by authority was loved by the public, now it seems what is loved by authority is ignored by the public, while thirty year old shows on archive channels pull bigger audiences than the politically correct shite of the current output.

 

 

 

 

David Davis struggles through interview with a sick bucket by his side.

Brexit Secretary David Davis, appearing on the Andrew Marr Show this morning requested a sick bucket be placed next to him in case he threw live on air. The Brexit Secretary, who was suffering from a stomach bug, then struggled through the interview which focused on progress made towards a transition deal for the UK’s leaving the EU.

Mr Davis was praised by the corporation’s editor of live programmes for his “commendable concern for our studio floor”. Rob Burley, who is the former editor the Sunday political programme, joked that while Mr Davis had “made it to the end” he doubted he would be “sticking around for breakfast”.

Persevering through the interview, Mr Davis insisted that the Government would find a solution to the Irish border, adding that this week’s breakthrough with Brussels made the likelihood of a trade deal “incredibly probable”.

He added that it would be the “most comprehensive one ever” and would make the prospect of a hard border in Northern Ireland much easier to resolve. Although some Bexit supporers (half of us Stirers included,) believe the concession given as part of the transition deal, to remain tied to the EU’s pernicious Common Fisheries Policy is a betrayal of our fishing industry, so long as control of fishing rights reverts to Britain at the end of transition it may be a price worth paying, with the die hard supporters of the Remain campaign, including Conservative, Labour, Liberal Deomcrat and Scottish Nazi Party MPs who have threatened to stop the UK leaving the EU, are now in reteat.

Almost 60 per cent of Brits now think the government should respect the referendum result and “get on” with delivering Brexit. In a new poll by BMG for Change Britain, respondents were asked if they agreed that “the government should get on with implementing the result of the referendum to take Britain out of the EU and in doing so take back control of our borders, laws, money and trade”.

A strong 57 per cent agreed and less than a quarter – just 22 per cent – disagree with the statement, according to the results, seen by the Guido Fawkes website. Twenty-one per cent did not answer the question.

In fact, according to the poll, support for implementing the referendum result and taking back control is backed in every age group, class, British region, and among supporters of all major political parties.
