    Arrogant Argie Rant? Where Else But The Guardian? 

    The issue of the Falkland Islands was settled properly 40 years ago….

    ….when invaders from Argentina were soundly thrashed and expelled from the British territory they’d briefly occupied.

    The population, British by birth and allegiance, were delighted.

    So were the British back home…


    …who recognised Maggie Thatcher’s heroic success in defeating squalid imperialist adventurism.

    End of a glorious story.

    But not for the Guardian.

    That leftist rag this weekend affords the defeated enemy a chance to strut his stuff, 40 years on.

    No Argentine government will cease in its pursuit of our sovereign claim

    Santiago Cafiero, Argentina’s Foreign Minister, just hasn’t got the message. 

    ...we must be aware that without a frank and constructive dialogue regarding the South Atlantic…



    The UK should slap on a few sanctions.

    And also stop wasting tax-payers’ money on the UN…



    …which has been deliberately encouraging the recalcitrance of one government after another in Buenos Aires, as Senor Cafiero makes crystal clear!

    BBC At War…No Longer Neutral? 

    One’s natural instinct, when a mighty power targets a smaller country.. .


    Poland’s treatment by the Third and Fourth Reichs, for example….

    …is to sympathise with the bully’s victim.

    Just been listening to UK Pravda’s Steve Rosenberg in Moscow, assuring us that ‘this is not a war the Russian public wants.’

    Very possibly true, but who knows?

    How many of Russia’s millions of people has Mr. Rosenberg spoken with?

    Overall, it’s fair to say the BBC has been overtly anti-Putin, its numerous ‘guests’ differing in approach but united in hostility to Moscow.

    WHAT A DIFFERENCE from the Falklands War…

    …when the BBC was NOT exactly pro-British…

    “…it is not the BBC’s role to boost British troops ‘ morale..”


    “…the widow in Portsmouth is no different from the widow of Buenos Aires.. “   https://www.bbc.co.uk/historyofthebbc/research/editorial-independence/falklands-conflict

    Just saying!

      We all remember the shameful (or should I say shameless? ) role of the BBC during the Falklands War but we all prefer to forget Maggie’s failure to follow through
      After defeating Argentina, she had a chance and the popular support, to take on the ‘enemy at home, ‘ the BBC.
      We are still suffering today because she did not.

    Who Poisoned A Generation’s Mind? 

    I started writing this last month, but with so many things to write about, then Remembrance Day and Poland to think about, I decided to save it till now.

    BBC have some nerve!

    While most of us are delighted their race-obsessed ‘Black British History Month’ is over…

    Black Power’ Play At BBC?

    …they then drag in that arrogant preachy leftist, whom they describe as a ‘TV historian’ – Prof David Olusoga ( is he a ‘TV historian’ only because the BBC  hires him again and again…

    Prof David Olusoga

    David Olusoga


    (out of hundreds, thousands maybe, perfectly good non-left historians and paying him out of coerced license fees)


    …secure in the knowledge that he is as steeped in BLM bias as the state broadcaster’s in-crowd?

    UK Pravda’s plain purpose is to spin British history…



    …against the way most of us enjoyed it.

    Not all schoolkids did enjoy history but those of us who did liked learning about Clive of India, and Wolfe’s heroic victory in Canada…


    …and about terrific commanders like Nelson and Wellington.

    And if our side lost a war or two, against insurgent Americans, for example, we could handle that.

    Building the greatest empire the world has ever known. ..



    …was no small feat and we were rightly proud.

    But this pinko prof has a different, and distasteful, tale to tell.

    The way history is viewed is changing. It’s possibly a deeper change than some people realise because I don’t think what we’re living through is a series of political events; I think we’re living through a generational shift,” he says.


    And that has come about how?

    Has a generation been toxified by the changing climate, perhaps?



    It’s what they’re taught and how they’re taught, by rancid left propagandists masquerading as ‘teachers!’



    With a little help from ‘tv historians,’ needless to say.

    It’s all down to people in their 20s, those at school and in their teens, who have a relationship with history which, says Prof Olusoga, is profoundly different from that of their parents and grandparents.

    A different relationship?

    They have had years of divisive, subversive, anti-patriotic indoctrination to divide them from their parents and grandparents…


    …and as Olusoga makes VERY clear, left prejudice is bound to have infected many of them, to his immense satisfaction.

    “They do not want British history to be a catalogue of heroes and victories and glorious chapters,” he says.. 

    Why the Hell not?


    If Olusoga is correct in his gloat, they are a pack of sick puppies!

    But I refuse to give up hope.

    National pride, in one’s history and  heritage of global greatness simply cannot have been eradicated.

    The same process had been underway long before 1981…

    …yet I remember vividly the crowds of true Brits cheering the Task Force as it left to win the Falklands War…

    . ..


    …and the cheering throng too that lined the London streets, patriots young and old, for the Falklands Victory March.

    The sickness afflicting too many of a generation can be cured.

    A good start would be keeping Olusoga’s bitter negativity off tv screens from now on….

    …and making sure the evil of CRT is kept out of class-rooms.

    Crime To Call BBC Traitorous? Since When? 

    Quite shocking, not that this Mr Hockridge, from Harpenden in Hertfordshire, called a UK Pravda hack a ‘traitor…’


    ….but that he is being prosecuted for saying so, in a UK court!

    The accused, we’re told, “did not deny calling Mr Watt a traitor.”

    I have commented on the despicable behaviour of many BBC propagandists, but not, as far as I recall, on the reporter Watt, so I am saying nothing about him today.

    But I do remember vividly…

    …the nationwide outrage at the BBC’s treasonous drivel during the Falklands liberation war…



    …when the tax-funded propaganda channel scum declared..

    “…it is not the BBC’s role to boost British troops ‘ morale”, and that “the widow in Portsmouth is no different from the widow of Buenos Aires.. “


    …and I remember the many voices raised to point out that the ‘widow in Portsmouth’ paid the tv tax that kept the disloyal BBC swine in a job!

    The BBC is a disgrace…

    If Only The BBC Cared About The Country

    Will the BBC EVER Be Pro-British?

    …and has been ever since it declared its neutrality in the Falklands War.

    And actually…

    …long before that!

    Using the police and the courts to criminalise what millions think is not insulting…

    But his solicitor Gemma Motion said he denied the use of the word had been threatening, abusive or insulting, or that it would be perceived to cause harassment, alarm or distress.



    …but the absolute truth, is a deplorable attempt to suppress criticism of a morally bankrupt institution!

      Like everyone else old enough in 1981/2, I have not forgotten our disgust at those BBC b-stards, and we wanted something down about it.
      If you went through that link you got the quotes from, you’ll see the BBC never apologised, never fired the man who spoke those words.
      I still get angry when I think about how the armed forces in the South Atlantic must have felt.

    Will Even A Dozen Dubliners Pen Apologies To Britain? 

    Dear Britain … Write an open letter to UK voters

    The Irish Times invites Irish readers to write an open letter to Britain and its citizens 

    After the spiteful, aggressive, rabidly hostile antics of Varadkar and his ministerial flunkeys over the last three years – and Eire’s rancid record over the past seventy something years – the great majority of Brits might reasonably expect to receive bushels of letters – of apology.



    Dublin signed a treaty, solemnised and registered with the League of Nations, nearly a century  ago, recognising Ulster’s right to self-determination.

    A plan consequent to that treaty, to adjust the land border the better to ensure ethnic homogeneity..


    …was ditched due to Dublin’s arrogant refusal to countenance the reciprocal transfer of even an inch or two of territory.

    De Valera’s frolicking with Nazi envoys and his lamentation over Hitler’s death…

    This was indeed a deadly moment in our life, and if it had not been for the loyalty and friendship of Northern Ireland we should have been forced to come to close quarters with Mr. de Valera or perish forever from the earth.

    However, with a restraint and poise to which, I say, history will find few parallels, we never laid a violent hand upon them…

    ..Image result for devalera hitler

    ….which at times would have been quite easy and quite natural, and left the de Valera Government to frolic with the German and later with the Japanese representatives to their heart’s content.


    Dublin/Berlin- ‘Nexus’ or Axis? 

    Eire’s refusal to extradite savage Sinn Fein/IRA terrorists…

    ...the Provos continued to use the Republic as a launch pad, and numerous requests for extradition of the most evil perpetrators of republican crimes were continually refused…

    …and the Dublin government’s subversive stance on “Europe’s” solidarity during the fight against Argentina’s expansionist aggression in the South Atlantic…


    Image result for evil irishman

    Eire’s bigotedly anti-British Defence Minister branded Britain as the aggressor, a crude and ignorant jibe…Dublin’s entire foreign policy was based on imposing foreign rule on a British community…Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing 

    …have not been forgotten, nor forgiven, nor have Varadkar’s intrusions into a peaceful neighbour’s internal affairs…

    Mind Your Erse! Varadkar Minces Into Ulster’s Internal Affairs


    Eire’s Act Of War? Limp-Wrist Leo Stamps A Mincing Foot! 


    So the letters of apology due from the Irish Times’s readers should be lengthy and fulsome.


    Don’t be waiting for the postman ( oops, the PC ‘letter-carrier!’) at the garden gate, all you British readers.

    You’ll likely get not a word of contrition from a country with no conscience.



    If you use the link to read the invitation, it says you too are invited to write something.

    A few of the historical/political facts listed above may inspire your composition of demands for Eire apologies!

    • Billy King 22:17 on November 4, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      I might just write them a scorcher, Ross.
      I might use some of your words as well. They’re great!
      No surrender!


    • Norrie Harris 16:40 on November 5, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      There should be a mass letter writing campaign telling the enemy down south what we think of them, but why bother?
      They hate Ulster people and have never respected our right to decide for ourselves who we are, as if we didn’t know our own identity.
      If they ever drag us into a 32 county state, they will regret it because that state will be a burnt-out desert by the time we finish with it.

    An Appeal To Brexit Brits! STOP The ‘EU Defence Union!’ 

    As our headline says, this is an appeal for action, issued by the Bruges Group, which I pass on to UK readers as I pass on many appeals, petitions etc. from all right-minded sources.

    The appeal comes at the bottom of our page, but first a few words of my own.

    The very idea of entangling British defence with hostile powers, at least two of which harbour aggressive expansionist ambitions, intent on seizing British territory against the wishes of the people who live there…

    Cool Britannia’s Gibraltar Sell-Out? Tell the Truth, B.Liar! 

    ..is simply NUTS!

    Spain? This very month?

    Theresa May faces Tory backlash as Spain adds Gibraltar demands …

    The Sun25 Feb 2018



    An eternal enemy!

    Brussels accused of ‘outrageous’ attempt to turn Northern Ireland into EU province by rejecting British compromises

    Ulster – Does Enda Kenny Carry A UK Passport? 

    Eire’s bigotedly anti-British Defence Minister branded Britain as the aggressor, a crude and ignorant jibe…Dublin’s entire foreign policy was based on imposing foreign rule on a British community…Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing 


    Does nobody remember…?

    Never Forget Brussels’ Back-Stabs in the Falklands War! 


     Now here’s the appeal!


    EU defence and security plans include the UK even after Brexit

    Take part in the Bruges Group’s campaign to ask your MP for a full Brexit for defence.

    Email your Member of Parliament to inform them about the Government committing the UK to be a part of the EU’s defence and security plans.
    The EU is establishing what it calls an ‘EU Defence Union’, this includes the UK.

    Since 23rd June 2016 the Government have included the UK in these military plans with no debate in the British Parliament. Leaving the EU must also include our full independence from the European Union’s interference in our defence, security and foreign policy. Anything less is a failure to respect the referendum result.

    Click on the link below to question your Member of Parliament about the UK’s post-Brexit involvement in EU defence projects. And to demand that Britain’s armed forces and defence industry are free from the EU.

    Click here to email your MP
    This will send an email to your Member of Parliament to demand a full Brexit for defence

    A Dublin Veto?! Arrogant Eire Needs A Hard Lesson!

      One of your best ever, Ross!
      I wish the RAF had flown back from Germany in 1945 and hit that Dev devil while he was mourning Hitler.
      They’re a bunch of b—tards down there, always trying to grab Ulster by hook or by crook.
      Theresa May? She is rubbish.
      Just a cardboard cut-out prime minister, the DUP was daft ever to trust her.


      • Byron Miller 11:27 on December 5, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        Billy, the DUP were daft that is true and when I lived in Ulster I never voted for them.
        But now we are depending on them and it looks like they are doing what they can to stop May selling Ulster out.
        I see they are being blamed for the impass and I am grateful if they are.

        Whats really daft is the media who are saying that if Ulster gets special treatment then Scotland and even London should too.
        Do the media not understand that th DUP is not asking for special treatment but just the opposite, they want Ulster to be treated in term of ‘divergency’ just the same as the rest of the UK.!!


    • Chico McDonald 17:59 on December 4, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Stop all trade with that hostile country, yes, and take away their voting rights, bigger yes!

      We had all that anti-British interference during our Brexit referendum, from their Prime Minister, or ‘Tshirt’ as they call it ( I have no idea how to spell their strange language) Enda Kenny.
      Now they have that ‘quair fellow’ Varakdar ( spelling again!) holding that position and he is claiming a veto on Brexit?
      Kick them in the teeth.

        Chico, the spelling is ‘Taoiseach’ but its pronounced a bit like ‘t-shirt!’
        I was wondering with that ‘quair’ in Dublin serving as their ‘T-shirt’ , we could change it to ‘Shirt-lifter!’


        • Florence Leigh 00:26 on December 5, 2017 Permalink

          It’s fair comment if you want to say that Ulster has kept to a higher standard of public morality than Eire, meaning Eire’s collapse into ‘gay’ marriage, but I do not see any need to personalise the attacks on Varadkar. His sexual problems make him neither better or worse than any other Dublin Taoiseach

          On the other hand I like the reference to the anti-British record of Dublin leaders like De Valera’s Hitler mourning and Haughey’s behaviour during the Falklands War/
          What we can all agree on is that we have a country next door to the UK which is interfering in our internal affairs. It should be treated as hostile and its people given no privileges in our country.

      They have never recognised our right to be free of them.

      Up till fifty years ago ,we could count on the mainland British to be on our side but ever since Heath they have turned their backs on us and it’s time we hit back at them.

    Katty Kay – One Bare-Faced BBC Liar! 

    I’ve been meaning to compose this post for some time, but this rainy arvo – yeah, Jakarta’s rainy season is coming round again…




    …has left me with time on my hands as I wait for an evening visitor.

    Katty Kay.jpg


    If you ever watch that BBC World Channel, you must have heard Ms. Katty Kay, filmed as she struts around, braying the praises of her pay-masters.

    Actually, she doesn’t. She extols the BBC, but her fat salary comes from the pockets of the British people, who are forced to fund that next of biased vipers.



    The line that grates most harshly in her incantation is the totally dishonest claim that the BBC is the ‘ONLY’ media institution that ‘has never taken sides’ in any war, revolution or whatever.

    That was more or less true when the treacherous swine in Broadcasting House infamously declared themselves neutral when brave young Brits were laying down their lives for freedom.

    But NEVER?

     Every senior BBC mandarin and broadcaster MUST be aware of how their servile bias was exposed, how they very definitely DID ‘take sides’ against Rhodesia.

    We’ve published on that episode more than once.

    Will the BBC EVER Be Pro-British? 

    But today we do so again.


    The same BBC which cast its charter to the winds by acting as Harold Wilson’s Pravda during the Rhodesian sell-out.

    Harold Wilson used the BBC World Service to promulgate false information about Ian Smith. A letter in the PRO from the Rhodesia Ministerial Committee to the Prime Minister advised that Ian Smith should be portrayed as a weak unreliable figure. Note that the BBC’s World Service, although fully financed by the government, is subject to the same “public service” conditions as the Home Services…




    ….Another letter from the Commonwealth office dated 25th May 1967 refers to a request by the PM to be shown fresh guidance before it was sent to the BBC. The official said; “I am afraid this guidance has gone; in accordance with our usual practice it was given orally and confidentially to the Head of their African Service. It was suggested to the BBC, we should continue as in the past to make Mr Smith appear incapable of making up his own mind. He should be portrayed as evasive, weak and vacillating. Full agreement was reached with the BBC and the guidance has already been reflected in the content of broadcasts.”…-

    • propaganda2

    This campaign went on for two years. A letter from the BBC to the Civil Service asks for permission to discontinue the campaign because of staffing problems. The BBC man in charge, presumably responsible for continuously breaking his obligations under the Royal Charter, was being promoted.

    These letters are probably the only official documents available which prove without any doubt that the BBC has been used by the government of the day to broadcast government propaganda. Stop BBC Bias – BBC Charter Review



    More than most, Comrade Kay, whose years of service to Pravda UK began in that once happy and prosperous African country, now a basket case and known as ‘Zimbabwe,’ HAS to be fully aware of how her shrill propaganda is mendacious.

    Brits need to demand her dismissal!

    • Pamela 20:42 on November 7, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Never trust the BBC!
      They do not serve the people whose money they live off. Their loyalties lie somewhere else.
      I would bet a king’s ransom that after that document was made public, they had reliably leftist staff go through all their archives to make sure similar documents exposing their betrayal of their duty to impartiality were carefully collected and shredded, or burned, or otherwise disposed of.


    • Edward Lamont 22:04 on November 7, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, demand her dismissal, but she is no worse than the rest of them.
      Better idea?
      Demand the BBC be privatised so we no longer are compelled to pay for their lies and bias.


    • Leonard 11:48 on January 12, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      I was watching the BBC world channel a little while ago and they were talking about how the BBC had been happy to help the war effort in WW2, as of course they should.

      However,they declared themselves neutral in the Falklands War. We have to deduce they thought the Nazis were bad but the Argentine, Galtieri’s junta, was not so bad.
      Their behaviour in the Rhodesian affair was exactly as you describe, outrageous.
      This Kay woman is just ignorant.
      Or is it dishonesty.
      I think the latter, like all those BBC leftists who use their power to load their talk-shows with invited guests they can trust to broadcast biased propaganda.
