    Awas, Jakarta! Beware That Un-‘British’ Council! 

    I used to drop by the Jakarta offices of the British Council, but that was before they gave away the rather useful library.

    Since then, not so much.

    And in view of the news this week, best steer clear of the pathetic wokified outfit.

    ( ‘Awas!’ means ‘Watch out!’)

    I’m certainly not the only one to feel this way.

    “The British Council should be encouraging people not to take offence when no offence is intended – in other words, the exact opposite of what they are doing here.

    The report, exposing outrageous PC gibberish which British Council HQ is recommending’ to staff worldwide…



    • and please note, it had to be brought into the light of day by a formal “Freedom of Information’ request!
    • .

    ….reveals what must rank among the worst examples of national/cultural self-hate exposed for quite a while.

    An organisation which annually leeches millions from the British public purse to promote the United Kingdom…

    ( 189 million this year! )

     ..dislikes using everyday British usage, like ‘Brits’ and ‘the Queen’s English.’


    Sounds like some disloyal douche-bag’s got into their machinery…


    Image result for evil irishman


    …in view of their ‘advisory’ “against the use of the word ‘Brits’ to describe people from the UK, ‘as the term generally does not include people from Northern Ireland’.”


    Indonesian readers please note, the people of Ulster, the British Province of Northern Ireland, delight in being British.

    Ulsterfolk are as British as it gets!.

    If the ‘British’ Council has on its staff some sympathiser with the disloyal minority in Northern Ireland, the Bloodbeast Adams/IRA think-alikes….



    …that infiltrator needs to be rooted out.

    Much of the BC-PC hogwash is predictable, but get this..


    It’s so bad that the dumbo PC drips who composed it warn against using ‘politically-correct…’

    …because it ‘downplays and trivialises the hurt and offence caused’ in certain circumstances.


    Get a life, pinko creeps!

    And this?

    .…remarking that ‘the colour scheme is insane’ or ‘they had a fit’ should be off limits due to the mental health connotations

    To my Indonesian readers, beware – this organisation’s verbal vomit is in NO way representative of decent ordinary British people, the True Brits!


    To True Brits back in The Old Country…

    Tell these woke-weasels what you think of them!

    10 SPRING GARDENS, London
    SW1A 2BN
    United Kingdom +44 (0)161 957 7755

    But more importantly….


    ….email your MP and demand that not a penny more from YOUR taxes be provided, until they withdraw their ‘advisory’ grovel-gunk, apologise, and fire the ratbag that wrote it.

      I do not understand why the British Council send such stupid advice to the staffs.
      I hope the foreign teachers do not obey it.
      My English language teachers always called native speakers, and languagthat is why they got the jobs.
      If we want non native speakers, we get them in high school.
      Many were not very good with English language

      You are definitely not the only one who wants this leechy bunch brought down to earth with a bang.

      I knew a few guys worked at the British Council in Jakarta.
      They were 100% normal, not a chance they would have used any of the PC horse-sh-t in that “advisory”
      I have worked with people that took their English courses at the British Council, and they like it because they had native English teachers.
      I will warn young Indonesians about the new policy.

    Leeching Off UK Tax-Payers, British Council Sponsors Pro-Crimmigrant Play 

    We’ve had cause to look at the British Council’s activities here in Jakarta…

    …notably their collaboration with the unspeakable Jakarta Post and their promotion of pro-pervert propaganda.

    But after our focus on the BBC’s effete and uncritical ‘NEWS’ report on that pro-crimmigrant knees-up in New York a few days ago…

    Usherette? Gusherette! BBC Bint Promotes “Jungle” Play In USA!

    …here’s what we offer today.

    The British Council in the USA was pleased to partner with St. Ann’s Warehouse to bring The Jungle to the United States…The British Council in the USA brought The Jungle to the United States from Dec 2018-Jan 2019, in partnership with St. Ann’s Warehouse. 

    Bad enough they were splurging tax-funded resources on pro-crimmigrant trash, but then they rant on, in the most nauseating terms.


    This is the place where people suffered and dreamed.

     YEAH, right!

    Suffered at the hands of filthy savages!

    And on the British Council rambles…

    Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle – just across the English Channel from the UK.

    You can see some of those hopeful and resilient residents in the photograph above.

    Unfortunately, a lot of them are NOT any longer there but have been brought into the UK…by Theresa The Appeaser and her loathsome Minister, Amber Rudd.

      It’s extremely offensive how these publicly funded bodies waste British people’s money.
      That Calais mob were revolting and should never be celebrated and certainly not out of public funds. There are enough of them already sponging, the ones that Amber Rudd brought in as pretend-children.
      I never hear anything good about the BritishCouncil and I never expect anything good from the BBC.

      I hope they keep this show out of my state and the other healthy parts of the USA.
      New York and California will love it, because they seem to like to have their cities over-run by illegal aliens.
      The rest of us do not!

    British Council Embraces Hacks Long-Silent On Book-Burning? 

    As you may know, the British Council is funded by UK tax-payers. It calls itself a ‘charity’ but is very much part of the Foreign Office apparatus.

    “There is a widespread assumption that The British Council is a wing of our Secret Intelligence Services, however minor. Officially it is no such thing but there are connections……..”   Feuds and turf wars put Fresh Talent flagship plan in jeopardy

    Unfortunately, UK tax-payers don’t get to know much about that sort of thing, nor do they get much say in what the BC does “Speaker Michael Martin in secrecy row over British Council trips”The Daily Telegraph

    And THEN there are such activities as….

    Collaboration with Red China’s communist censors…

    Ma Jian protest paints the London Book Fair red.

    Bringing Censors to the Book Fair.

    …and promotion of ‘gay’ propaganda…

    In 2015, the British Council launcheda free, online, 10-day LGBT film festival…the first global online LGBT film festival  .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Council

    If you are a Brit tax-payer, maybe you think that’s an outrageous abuse of your money.

    Or maybe you are okay with that sort of nonsense.

    However, today, a look at the British Council’s open collaboration with a newspaper infamous here for its failure to condemn IslamoNazi book-burning!


    Hasil gambar untuk british council jakarta


    “Writing on Diversity”, an event hosted by The Jakarta Post and The Jakarta Post Writing Center in partnership with Raffles Hotel Jakarta and British Council Indonesia.

    The report adds that those present included former chief editor of The Jakarta Post Endy Bayuni…the discussion focused on how writers can employ diversity to help counter rising intolerance.    http://www.thejakartapost.com/multimedia/2018/04/02/writing-on-diversity-taking-up-stories-against-intolerance.html

    I don’t know about the ‘writers’ present, but I do know about Endy Bahyuni, who, as noted, for some years held a senior editorial position at the Jakarta Post.

    Endy has more than once presented himself as a fan of free expression and religious tolerance.


    “Don’t give any room to the hard-liners,” said Endy…“Please cover them when they’re violating the law, but don’t give space to small group of people when they rally against something absurd. They used the media effectively and deceive the media to suit their own means. ”http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/news/indonesian-media-needs-to-cover-religion-not-radicals-iarj/ 

    That was a year after Gramedia collaborated with the bigots, and we duly took note!

    Bayuni’s Bravado, Gramedia’s Grovel, Jakarta Post’s Double Standards 

    That occasion, a couple of years ago, would have been a golden opportunity for Endy to redeem his newspaper’s good name with a spirited public denunciation of the Gramedia company, of whose business empire the JP is part.



    Alas, he did not take that opportunity, nor, so far as news reports tell us, did he do so at the Raffles Hotel this month.

    Nor, to the best of my knowledge, has any member of the editorial clique ever done so. 

    Despite its frequent blathering about the virtues of pluralism, I have yet to see any JP editorial condemnation of Gramedia’s disgusting grovel to sectarian censorship, which occurred five years ago…

    ….an episode which culminated in an action replay, jointly supervised by Gramedia and Islamist ‘scholars,’ of the sort of conflagration – book-burning- which characterised Hitler’s Germany. 


    Germany, 1930s (above)

    Indonesia 2012 (below)


    I would suggest the British Council be instructed by the UK Embassy here in Jakarta to cut all ties with this pathetic rag until the editors thereof grow a set and disown their parent company’s blazing appeasement of Islamist bigotry

      I used to use the British Council’s library till they gave it away. to the Indonesian government.
      I never knew anything about their bad record, the Communist China story or the spy story either.
      If they are a respectable organization, they would have nothing to do with the Jakarta Post.

      Good, Ross, keep after the hacks!
      Thanks for that about the British COuncil, no idea they were like that.

      This is very interesting. It’s sad that the media there are so keen to work with Islamists, because if Islamists come to power, press freedom disappears.
      From what you have been writing in the past 12 months, there’s every chance the Islamists will come to power in Indonesia, so some journalists are hedging their bets.
      So much for integrity, but Western journalists are a pretty foul lot too.. .

      And who did you say funds this British Council?
      Us mugs, the British tax-payers, who never gave them permission to cover-up the way they spend our money.
      That story of how the Speaker of the House of Commons slapped a ban on revealing junkets by MPs at British Council (i.e. OUR) expense is outrageous. Same goes for them being so hand in glove with the communist censors in Beijing.
      Iwonder how many MPs would vote to clean up this ‘British’ Council?
      How would their junketing MP guests vote?
      We should start a petition to either wind this so-called ‘charity’ up altogether or kick them off the gravy train.
      Slash their salaries, stop them spending our money on queer film fests and make them work for British interests!

      I see the British Council is keeping its head down.
      They must think nobody cares how low they can sink and thats probably true.
      Not my taxes anyway so I leave it to the British tax-paying public.
