The Blue Pill.
There are industries that shutdown at certain times of the year for genuine reasons that involve maintenance and
upgrading to improve production.

If the price-markets where a company using certain materials are unfavourable or countrywide holiday periods demand
a drop in production, then these periods might be an ideal time to close down operations.

But to keep the pressure on the remain narrative of the Brexit debacle and appease the UK bourgeoisie Government
that the UK cannot leave the European Union, the faithful BBC use a regular business act dealing with a situation that
assists it's production, and connects it with a political wrangle in an erroneous way.

Car production has gone down due to several reasons, delays in leaving the EU isn't one of them and the BBC knows it.
Anyway, it's better than their front-web-page article on a cat getting stuck on a bridge, I suppose.

Quote:Brexit shutdown slashes UK car production by 45%.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5854]

'Factory shutdowns designed to cope with disruption from a 29 March Brexit, slashed UK car production in April by almost a half.
Even though Brexit is delayed the factories still closed and production fell 44.5% according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers
and Traders (SMMT).

In what it called "an extraordinary month", the SMMT said only 70,971 cars rolled off production lines.
That was 56,999 fewer than in April a year ago.
Production for both home and overseas markets fell by 43.7% and 44.7% respectively.

The SMMT said car firms had brought forward their annual stoppages normally scheduled for the summer holidays.

It said the shutting of factories was part of a raft of costly measures, including stockpiling, training for new customs procedures and
rerouting of logistics. It said the factories would not be able to repeat the process for the new 31 October Brexit deadline set by the
European Union.

Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said: "Today's figures are evidence of the vast cost and upheaval Brexit uncertainty has already
wrought on UK automotive manufacturing businesses and workers. "Prolonged instability has done untold damage, with the fear of
'no deal' holding back progress, causing investment to stall, jobs to be lost and undermining our global reputation."

Global slowdown
The stoppages in the factories have exacerbated a continuing slow down in the global car industry caused by the trade tensions between
the US and China, uncertainties over the arrival of electric and self driving cars, and tougher environmental controls after the VW emissions

April was the 11th consecutive month of output falls in the UK.
In the year to date, 127,240 fewer cars have been built compared with the same period in 2018 - a decline of more than a fifth.

The SMMT estimated production for the whole of 2019 would be about 10% down on last year. It said the market might pick up by the end
of the year if there was a favourable deal between the UK and the EU and a substantial transition period to adapt to trading outside the
single market.
But it said a no-deal Brexit would make the declines worse with the threat of border delays, production stoppages and additional costs.

Mr Hawes said: "This is why 'no deal' must be taken off the table immediately and permanently, so industry can get back to the business
of delivering for the economy and keeping the UK at the forefront of the global technology race."...'

It seems the mainstream media are nearing the bottom of their magic bag of subterfuge, as now the idea of a
'non-story' has taken on its literal meaning and become a story about nothing.

Sky News reports:

Quote:Pope Francis approves changes to words of Lord's Prayer..

'Pope Francis has approved changes to the Lord's Prayer after saying some of the words implied God pushes people
toward sin...'

As you will see, this article is the equivalent of stating that Ford Motor Company are changing the colour of all their cars to
black only... except for the ones that they paint with different colours. The lazy piece also comes with the assurance that this
'au courant' announcement is a year old.

Quote:[Image: attachment.php?aid=5886]

'...The pontiff revealed in 2017 that he wanted to amend the line "lead us not into temptation" after saying it was based
on a flawed translation. He has now approved changing the words to "do not let us fall into temptation" in Italian, with an
announcement made at the general assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy last month, according to reports...'

Stated a year ago, 'approved' a month ago and reported now -and with the caveat that it's second-hand information.
Now here's grist to show how only a tiny fragment of relevance is needed these days, to take an acorn and sell it as an

By the way, Sky isn't a newspaper and yet, this piece suggests it is. Maybe during the cutting and pasting, the editing
may have had to settle for the bronze.

Quote:'However, it appears a new English language version will not be adopted by the Catholic Church in Britain any time soon.

A spokesman for the Catholic Church in Scotland told Sky News it had "no plans to change the wording of the Our Father".
"The translation of the prayers of the Mass into different languages is a matter for the language groups concerned," he said.
"The Vatican does not centrally translate all the church's prayers into all the languages of the world.

The spokeswoman told the newspaper that "each language will be studied to see the specific meaning", adding: "I am sure
there will be some consultation with the English-speaking nations."

The Pope told Italy's TV2000 channel in 2017 that the line "lead us not into temptation" in the Lord's Prayer was "not a good
translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation".
"It's not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen," the Pope said.
"A father doesn't do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It's Satan who leads us into temptation, that's his department."

The new version of the Lord's Prayer will appear in a revised third edition of the Italian Missal - a book which includes guiding
texts for the celebration of Mass in the Catholic Church, according to reports. Anglicans and Protestants have separate texts
and are not affected...'
SKY News:

So particular literature used in some Italian Catholic Church's are being altered, which would make a fair explanatory headline,
but leave the web-page empty.
And we can't have that, can we?. The reader may think that some outlets are 'gatekeeping' news!

The Sun newspaper doesn't like to be outdone and in an ideal article, the scientist mentioned in the article below would be
female, sporting a push-up bra and having lips that would out-shine any fish caught in the famous expanse of water.
But, we'll have to make-do wtih using the word 'poo' and push the narrative in the headline again.

Quote:LOCH MESS MONSTER DNA tests on poo, scales and skin found in Loch Ness suggest Nessie is REAL, say scientists.

'THE Loch Ness Monster may exist, following scientists’ analysis of skin, scales, feathers, fur and poo found in the water.
Experts did DNA tests on the samples to probe theories including claims Nessie is a long-necked plesiosaur that survived
the mass dinosaur extinction, a sturgeon or giant catfish...'

Along with the same header, this paragraph confirms that theories of a large unknown creature may be correct,
but the cracks of that headline appear with the option of using the fish suggestion.

Quote:'Prof Neil Gemmell, of the University of Otago in New Zealand, said: “We’ve tested each of the main monster hypotheses.
“Three we can probably say aren’t right. One might be.”
Prof Gemmell said he hoped to announce the full findings of the study in Scotland next month - but would not confirm which
hypothesis might be right.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=5887]

"Is there anything deeply mysterious? Hmm. It depends what you believe. Is there anything startling? There are a few things
that are a bit surprising...'

Ooooh nearly! 'Prof' Gemmell is being reserved in his findings, unless some boring scientific information had been left out
to maintain the narrative?

Quote:'Announcing the study last year, Professor Gemmell said: "Scotland is dear to my heart because my mother and her family
are Scottish. "I'm delighted to be here to undertake our environmental DNA investigation of Loch Ness.
"We're delighted with the amount of interest the project has generated in the science and, monster or not, we are going to
understand Loch Ness, and the life in it, in a new way."....'
The Sun:

There are interesting anomalies of Loch Ness that could've been used as filler for this piece and here's a little taste.

My only surprise is that The Sun didn't toss in a photo of a bikini-clad ginger-haired beauty paddling in the shallows
of -what they'd swear were the peaty waters of the Great Glen... when in reality, the titillation was photographed in
the waters off Brighton.

Anyway, Professor Gemmell got to visit his family.

The resistance to learn to code is strong in these ones.

I think as the MSM are going through their death-throes, it's only appropriate to point out the occasional obvious set-ups
in order to pad out their time-slots or newspapers. We really have no idea the degree of falsehood that has taken place in
the past with these fillers, but with them comes the lowering of standards.

Chess grandmaster accused of cheating after being caught looking at mobile in loo during match.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6046]

'A CHESS grandmaster has been accused of cheating  while in the loo.
A photo emerged of Igor Rausis, 58, with a mobile phone -thought to have been hidden in a cubicle -during a tournament.

He was believed to be studying a chess app to suggest his next move while playing in Strasbourg, France.
The snap surfaced online and police are now investigating.

Rausis, who had represented Latvia, Bangladesh and Czech Republic, soared from an average grand master to a “super”
grand master in just six years.

Mobiles are banned at tournaments. In a statement, Rausis admitted secretly using one and said he was quitting the game.
He added: “I simply lost my mind yesterday." Grandmaster and ex-England player Danny Gormally said: “It’s amazing Rausis
wasn’t stopped earlier. Seems naive that people think someone can improve that much in their fifties.”...'
The Sun:

Whether the article is true or not, it's hardly journalism unless one asks the burning question brought up in The Sun's comment

Quote:Er, why is there a camera in the loo?

Beat me to it

Exactly my thoughts.
Nobody likes a cheat but a cctv camera in a toilet begs the question what pervert operate and viewed it
and on whose authority if it was sanctioned by the establishment?

Kinky lot these chess players.

Yes, why is there a camera in that toilet? 
Doing what a real Journalist would do, I checked-in with the website '' and after finding some
controversy regarding Mr. Rausis' withdrawal from the tournament...

Quote:"FIDE's [World Chess Federation] Fair Play Commission Secretary Yuri Garrett told that Rausis
voluntarily withdrew from the tournament. That contradicts a Facebook post written in Russian by FIDE Director
General Emil Sutovsky, who said Rausis was "suspended" from the tournament."

...I went to the comment-section again to see what they had to say about the incident. Two, only two people
were bothered by the camera being in the toilet. The rest of the comments argued about decency and honesty
in the game. It shows how warm the intrusive waters of control that the boiling frogs have accepted!

And that's the continuing narrative -even in the nerdy chess website! There's no mention in any article about
the intrusiveness of the camera in the toilet, just the so-called cheating.

The constant programming by the media at its best!

Here's another one of those stupid articles that is seen from a whacky angle, twisted slightly and then offered in the goal of
convincing the public that they can't even tie their shoe-laces without Government assistance. The BBC are really scraping
the barrel to report their biased news and omit information that harms the snowflakes.

Quote:New drivers could be banned from driving at night, ministers say.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6074]

'New drivers could be banned from travelling at night as part of plans to improve road safety in England.
Ministers are considering a graduated licence system to restrict novice drivers, the Department for Transport (DfT) has
announced. The move comes as figures suggest one in five drivers are involved in a crash within a year of passing their

At night, you forgot to support your headline by relating that one driver in every four crash at night. Unless of course, the
headline was click-bait and the four young driver who don't crash at night are being punished for something the unnamed
Ministers haven't said yet?

Quote:'...But the AA warned "excessive" safety measures could become an "unnecessary burden" for motorists.
As well as not driving at night, the DfT said the system could feature restrictions such as a minimum learning period and not
driving with passengers under a certain age...'

Ah yes, that would make sense. A burdened police force -so the British MSM keep telling us, will have to wait at the side of
motorways and assess every vehicle that passed on whether the young-faced driver was valid to carry the children in his/her
car. Maybe facial recognition technology could help...? Nah, this narrative can't be on about that.

Quote:'...The DfT did not say how long the measures would be in place after someone had passed their driving test.
Road safety minister Michael Ellis said getting a driving licence could be both "exciting" and "daunting" for young people.
He said graduated driver licensing could "help new drivers to stay safe and reduce the number of people killed or injured on
our roads"...'

Is this really about some rally-rive-assed louts making a noise with their baffle-less car outside a Journalist's London house?!

Quote:'...The DfT is giving serious consideration to how the system could work as part of its Road Safety Action Plan, which will be
published on Friday...'

Then we'll see on Friday if young drivers won't be able to work the night-shift due to these restrictions. I suppose we can say
goodbye to the TV advertisements where a young pregnant lesbian and her partner speed off to the hospital in the middle of
the night. Unless... this about young men, young heterosexual men.

Quote:'...Graduated licensing schemes already operate in several parts of the world, including New York and California in the US,
Ontario and British Columbia in Canada, New South Wales and Victoria in Australia, and across Sweden...'

Young Americans and Aussies can't drive at night?

Quote:'...They have previously been rejected in Britain over concerns they would restrict young people from accessing education and
employment. Under current rules in England, new drivers will have their licences revoked if they accumulate six penalty points
within the first two years of passing the test.
But there are no restrictions on when people can drive or the age of their passengers...'

Until Friday, BBC, your headline indicates that, remember? Or was that your climb-down, the milding off of an article constructed
to generate outrage from the scruffy people and smug smiles from the Harrod-shoppers?

Quote:'...Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for road safety charity Brake, said those particularly at risk were "overconfident"
newly-qualified young male drivers. Mr Harris said a more "robust" licensing process could help to keep these drivers safe.

While the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), also welcomed the trial, the AA warned any such scheme should
be "properly researched and piloted" to avoid creating an "unnecessary burden"...'

For f*ck-sake, this is on Thursday's BBC website! The Department Of Transport have announced it and the ever-wise Ministers have
only got a day to research it! Unless this is another non-time-sensitive article with few realities and lots of conjecture, written last month
and stored on a BBC Editor's news-desk for when most of the staff fly-off for a long-weekend break in France.

Oh and yes, it's male drivers who they're after. The ones who get their razors for free from the Government.

Quote:'...AA president Edmund King added: "For many people, excessive post-test restrictions could negate the purpose of them having a
driving licence in the first place -such as driving to work on early or late shifts when public transport is not convenient."...'

London... the BBC are on about London again.

Here we go again with the BBC's Diversity Department subtly laying the debate grounds for those with lower cultrural
standards to be allowed some psychological sanctuary for the majority of people who tend to see women as mere
sperm banks.

So they turn the rape situation -a growing concern in Britain, on its head, and see if they can dilute the invasive damage
of forced sex by loosely explaining between the lines that it is somehow physiologically 'enjoyable' for some who are
victims and some who are the abusers.

The trick though, is to make sure no woman mentioned in the example is responsible for her actions and with clever
wording, the reader may come to understand that the female is dealing with other problems and not just ravenous
for sex, whilst the male will be perceived as weak and helpless to solve the dilemma.

Add in -that through more composed dialectic, it quietly reprimands men for being men -and all men are rapists in
the newspaper fantasy-world, by switching victims and in some delusional way, hints that women can be empowered.
No culture is mentioned, no class-system is insinuated, no religious praxis are inferred and certainly no ethnicity is
nodded at.
This is the BBC, for Christ-sake!

You see, you can't create an article that just says rape is wrong if you're really trying to diffuse the current Epstein situation
and it's possible fallout. Prince Andrew and his mother are watching, so the Beeb better try -half-heartedly, I admit, to lessen
the mass-think about underage sex, organised sex-trafficking and even sodomy of male/female minors.

Quote:Forced penetration: If a woman forces a man to have sex, is that rape?
By Katie Silver

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6109]

When a man has penetrative sex with a woman without her consent, that's rape.
But what if a woman makes a man have penetrative sex with her, without his consent?
That's not rape under the law of England and Wales, but the author of a new study of the phenomenon says perhaps it
should be. Some readers will find this story disturbing...'

Note the words of caution for the snowflakes who see all young men as walking hard-ons, God forbid they ever have to live
in the real world.

Quote:'Dr Siobhan Weare of Lancaster University Law School carried out the first research into forced penetration in the UK in 2016-7,
gathering information from more than 200 men via an online survey.

Her latest study, published this week - based on one-to-one interviews with 30 men between May 2018 and July 2019 -explores in
greater detail the context in which forced penetration occurs, its consequences, and the response of the criminal justice system.

All the participants were anonymised, but I will call one of them John.
John says the first sign that something was wrong was when his partner started to self-harm. After a particularly frightening
incident he rushed her to A&E for treatment. The couple spent hours discussing possible psychological causes.

About six months later instead of harming herself, she trained her sights on John.
"I was sitting in the living room and she just came in from the kitchen, punched me very hard on the nose and ran off giggling,"
John says. "The violence then started happening quite regularly."

She tried to get help from her GP, John says. She had some counselling, and she was referred to a psychologist -though didn't
attend the appointment...'

Well it sounds like the demasculinisation of young males has worked in this particular case!
The woman's a fruit-basket and John is too weak to force his partner to seek help and so, just sits their all impotent... holding his
handkerchief with a 'J' neatly monogrammed in the corner by his mother, to his bloodied-nose.

Quote:'..."She'd come home from her job "and basically demand sex", he says. "She would be violent, and it got to the stage that
I dreaded her coming back from work."

On one occasion John woke up to find that his partner had handcuffed his right arm to the metal bed frame.
Then she started hitting him on the head with a loudspeaker from the stereo system beside the bed, tied up his other arm with
some nylon rope and tried to force him to have sex...'

tinyhuh tinyhuh

Quote:'...Scared and in pain, John was unable to comply with her demands - so she beat him again and left him chained up for half
an hour, before returning and freeing him. Afterwards she refused to talk about what had happened...'

And...? Please Ms. Journalist, expound on the situation immediately after that incident.
The female -a screwball in my opinion, released her partner from his duel-limbed captivity, presumably ignored medical aid to
the man who'd she'd beaten with a loudspeaker (who the f*ck uses that word?!) and then... what?
No automatic reports of Police involvement...?, no 'Oh the Government will help you, you poor youngster'?
I'm tempted to call this an example of a hefty heap of male bovine fecal matter.

Oh wait, this is a physical incident to portray the female's demands for sex, her very mental-behavior after the alleged assault isn't
brought into the discussion and so we're to accept that rape is a physical 'need', a compulsive, spur-of-the-moment action that
demands that the offender has no forethought of what he/she is about to do.
Ah yes, no concern of repercussions or self accountability. There'll be some Somalian men in London nodding right now.

Quote:'...Not long after that she became pregnant, and the violence abated. But a few months after the baby was born, John again
woke one night to discover that he was being handcuffed to the bed. Then, he says, his partner force-fed him Viagra and gagged
him. "There was nothing I could do about it," he says.

"Later I went and sat in the shower for I dunno how long… I eventually went downstairs. The first thing she said to me when
I went into the room was, 'What's for dinner?'"...'

Oh f*ck off with the Enid Blyton balderdash, will you?!
This is so formulaic, I'd expect to read it in a 'Dear Deidre' letter in a tabloid.
What's next, the poor emasculated John cries out to passing grey-suburbanites from his front-garden that he's a victim and
without turning their bowler-hatted heads, ignore his weak-assed pleas?!

Quote:'...When John has tried to tell people about it, he says he has often met with disbelief.
"I've been asked why I didn't leave the house. Well, it was my house that I'd bought for my kids.
And the financial side as well, I was so locked into the relationship financially," he says...'

Oh no John, the brutal sex was a freebie -unless you count making her dinner afterwards. Of course, that includes food for the
deaf children who never heard your girly-screams as your partner pranged you with the loudspeaker from your stereo -an
appliance that all parents have their bedroom... along with handcuffs in the family home and nylon rope.


Quote:'..."I still get disbelief because it's like, 'Well why didn't you hit her back?' I get that quite a lot. Well that's a lot easier
said than done. "I wish I'd run away a lot sooner."...'

And there we have it.
The EU project being displayed for all to see. Mentally castrated men seen in a creditable light and no implication of shame
of his masculinity. The female -the loony woman in a house full of children, is Captain Marvel and her male partner is just a
rational, understanding guy who failed to tolerate rape.

Quote:'...Aspects of John's story are repeated in the experiences of some of the other men Dr Weare has interviewed.
One of her findings is that the perpetrator in "forced-to-penetrate" (FTP) cases is often a female partner or ex-partner
(her research focuses only on forced penetration involving men and women), and that the experience is frequently one
element in a wider pattern of domestic abuse.

The experience of disbelief is also mentioned by other interviewees.
"You must have enjoyed it or you'd have reported it sooner," one man says he was told by a police officer...'

Face-palm time. A sneering Bobby-on-the-beat nudges his front-desk-bound moustached sergeant scribbling down
something with a pencil and winks as the dweeb with thick-rimmed spectacles and skinny arms relates how he was
assaulted by someone he trusted!!
What's next, the Policeman spoke with a Dick Van Dyke accent?!

Quote:'...Another participant said: "We're scared to talk about it and embarrassed, and when we do talk about it
we're not believed, because we're men. How can a man possibly be abused? Look at him, he's a man."...'

Very sly word-smithing there BBC, very sly.

Quote:'...Weare's other findings include:
Men are often ashamed to report FTP experiences - they may report domestic abuse without mentioning the sexual
The mental health impact can be severe, including PTSD, thoughts of suicide and sexual dysfunction
Some men report being repeatedly victimised -some experienced childhood sexual abuse, some had endured varying
types of sexual violence from different perpetrators, including men
Many had overwhelmingly negative perceptions of the police, criminal justice system, and the law..'

There's your duplicitous grouping-for-desensitising. Young boys and girls are sexually abused, but the original article was
about men being raped by women. By corralling all facets of abuse, I'd suggest that the BBC hopes the reader may view
each individual aspect with the same perspective as the stock woman-on-man examples.

Quote:'...One myth Weare's research dispels is that forced penetration is impossible because men are physically stronger
than women. Another is that men view all sexual opportunities with women as positive.
A third myth is that if men have an erection they must want sex. In fact, Weare says, "an erection is purely a physiological
response to stimulus". "Men can obtain and sustain an erection even if they're scared, angry, terrified etc," she says...'

So the next time you see a man running towards you with an erection, just remember that he can't help himself and just
because of the obvious physical optics may make you think he's a deliberate rapist, please try to understand that he may
be scared, anxious or have concerns of 'rape-care' that involve you.
Now... don't you feel Swedish?

Quote:'..."There's also research that shows women can respond sexually when they are raped (e.g. have an orgasm) because their
body is responding physiologically. This is an issue for both male and female victims that is not discussed enough, but there
is clear evidence in this area."...'

Eh gals, you're allowed to enjoy the physical act of rape, don't get bogged-down with the outdated taboo, it's just an antiquated
standard of civilised folk anyway, the BBC and Dr. Weare said so..

Quote:'...A number of the participants in Weare's 2017 study reported FTP experiences after getting extremely drunk or high, and
being unable to stop what was happening. One of those interviewed for the new study describes going home with a woman
after a night out clubbing, and blacking out after being given what he suspects was a date rape drug.
He says he was then forced to engage in non-consensual sex...'

I was initially shocked that a BBC Journalist would use such an expression as 'blacking out' until I learned that Katie Silver
used to work for CNN, Sky News and ABC, where the being-white-is-terrifying-and-bad' rhetoric is merely for ratings and
not a personal policy.
On the plus-side, the study is two years-old, but only commented on today (2019)...! so the information may be out of date.

Quote:'Another describes being coerced into sex while working at a holiday camp one summer, while he was a student.
A female co-worker had discovered a letter he had written to a boyfriend, and threatened to out him as gay unless he slept
with her. She thought that if he had sex with a woman "this would transform my life and I would be straight", he says.
As he had not come out to his friends, family or co-workers he felt that he had no choice but to comply...'

Women... and now you know why most men call them 'the brains-of-the-outfit'!

Quote:'...Weare says that most of the participants in the latest study regarded their forced-to-penetrate experiences as "rape", and
some were frustrated that it would not count as rape under the law of England and Wales. There was frustration also that
British society would most likely not recognise it as rape...'

Which section of British society are you referring to, Katie? Are there certain 'laws' that govern a particular group in England
and Wales that 'semi-permit' this domestic abuse? Please elaborate, those in the Diversity Department will be on their morning
break for prayers, so you can tell us poor idiots who you really mean.

But you can't. Instead you reach for the stereotypical Pre-EU English cause of domestic abuse. Alcohol.

Quote:"Talking about the fact that your ex-partner used to get drunk and force herself on you, rape you essentially, it's like most
blokes' fantasy isn't it?" said one of the participants. "Down the pub, you know, she gets a bit drunk, she gets a bit frisky
'Yay! Oh that would be fantastic!
I would love a bit of that!' No you really wouldn't, you bloody wouldn't. It's not the way that you think it is."...'

Ah, working-class talk of the drunken peasants. All those who drink (and NOT those who refrain due to their religious beliefs)
bullsh*t each other -or 'blokes' as Katie perceives them calling themselves, and explain that a good beating and a rough bout
of sex is what a usual evening on the council estate looks like.

Please tell me these blokes are unshaven, Katie... please say they wear flat-caps and are manual workers.
Er, but you can't call them 'labourers' though... no, that's too close to your preferred political party.

Quote:'...In one of Weare's papers - titled "Oh, you're a guy, how could you be raped by a woman, that makes no sense"
- she points out that in several US states rape is broadly defined as non-consensual sexual intercourse, and that in
the Australian state of Victoria a specific offence exists of "rape by compelling penetration".

Well that was fortuitous, Ms. Silver was a Reporter/Producer for CNN in New York and a television Producer for ABC in
Sydney, Australia.
Fancy that.

Quote:'...One of eight recommendations made in the latest study is that reform of the law of rape to include FTP cases requires
"serious consideration"...'

Wow, another round of applause for the constant work to mentally-cripple young men.

Many of us may agree that that the mainstream media are the gate-keepers who -at the behest of unknowns, relate
the same information and the same measure of good or bad narrative in order to assist in controlling societies.

One story can be seen from a different angle depending on political preference and where that news-outlet is situated
in the world. But basically, they all sing from the same hymn-sheet with the desire to keep the masses cosseted.

This is why recently, the major news corporations accused social media commentators of dealing in conspiracy theories
in regards of Jeffrey Epstein's death and mocked their lack of sensible discipline. The establishment stated Epstein took
his own life and the anomalies surrounding his last morning alive were usual instances that had been exaggerated for the
sake of nothing more than tantalising drama ratings.

Then large sections of the same traditional media set-about regaling their dwindling audiences with equivalent doubts of
how the sex-trafficker actually died.

The Sun website, 23rd August 2019:
"'HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS' Jeffrey Epstein was MURDERED, claims victims’ lawyer after
‘receiving new information from prison source’..."

The Daily Star website, 14th August 2019:
"Guards watching Jeffrey Epstein ‘fell asleep on the job’ and ‘falsified logs'..."

Fox News website, 21st August 2019:
"Jeffrey Epstein's former cellmate claims guards have threatened him to stay silent."

Business Insider website, 10th July 2019.
"Why did Jeffrey Epstein build a temple on his private island?...
The structure was built sometime between 2009 and 2013, but it's unclear what it's used for."

There are more, but the point is that information regarding Jeffrey Epstein's decades-old exploits and who he catered to went
ignored by the same medias. Why was that?

The simple answer would be a lack of investigation by any official authority and of course, the same news-outlets who pretend
they employ Journalists.

I mean -said in a sarcastic tone, how could anyone know what the wealthy and powerful people were doing at Epstein's many
properties...? It's not like there were cleaners at the New Mexico ranch, his island, his large New York mansion, the Palm Beach
home in Florida or even the apartment at Avenue Foch in Paris!

No construction workers, construction companies, specialised equipment businesses... none had a clue as to what he could be
up to and why he would want subterranean tunnels excavated on Little St. James Island and was even looking to further build
on more of his property on Great St. James island!

The scientists who took donations from the grey-haired hedge-fund Manager and socialite, they never saw a problem with his
wish to inseminate a number of girls in order to breed many of his own down on the Zorro Ranch. No, can we assume this falls
under the ethical guidelines of the science?
(By the way, this kind of experimentation was performed during a certain war that involved concentration camps. Just sayin')

None of the elite who travelled to any of these places used attendants or in some cases -security personnel, to assist them in their
jaunts to Jeffrey Epstein's estates. And if they did, these employees never felt that their own moral values as a human being were
being tested enough to approach a newspaper, a Police authority or even one of the rare politicians we keep being told are

Nope... a burglar can leave a fingerprint on a garden gnome and in a short amount of time, he's standing in the dock accepting
a Judge's ruling for his behavior. around the world with underage girls in-tow to service the powerful gentility, then only
someone like Sherlock Holmes would be able to perceive the shrouded web of exclusive debauchery.

Everyone was -and still is, involved. These kids got f*cked because the game is so rigged that it took a gargantuan shift in the
public's perception of the upper echelon of society and what or who caused it is still in debate.
However, during that 'Blue Pill'-time, these rich and powerful people -who enjoyed the 'Them & Us' gulf, are now fleeing from
the light and using the same mainstream media to do it.

Quote:Prince Andrew was seen getting foot massage from young woman at Epstein's apartment – report.

Incident was recounted in an email exchange between a prominent US literary agent and author Evgeny Morozov.

'Prince Andrew was seen inside the New York apartment of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein getting a foot massag
 from a young woman, according to an email exchange between a prominent US literary agent and author and writer
Evgeny Morozov.

In the exchange, published in the New Republic magazine, agent John Brockman recommends to writer Morozov (who
he represents as literary agent) that he meet with Epstein, calling him a “billionaire science philanthropist” who has “been
extremely generous in funding projects of many of our friends and clients”...'
The Guardian:

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6278]
Yeah... right.
(Here's another 'cop-out'-version: LINK.)

The trick is to give the public a half-truth that confirms their suspicions and let their disapproval dissolve in the assumed
 knowledge that the overtly-privilaged Prince Andrew travelled thousands of miles for a simple foot-massage.

The Guardian article never doubts the information or suggests -that in the light of the accusations of Epstein, that there could've
been anything else to Prince Andrew visiting a 'disgraced' sex-trafficker and being in proximity to the girls connected with the
court cases.

All this from a Journalist who reports what another Journalist wrote about someone remembering parts of an email... and
you wonder how Epstein suicide is taken as a reasonable outcome?!

The Blue Pill -where the world still believes the established media tells you the truth, has a lot to answer for, even if Epstein did
take the easier option. But make no mistake, everyone is involved.

I'm starting to feel sorry for the BBC with their pro-EU agenda and their aloof-minded box of tricks to fool
a dwindling audience, it's a damned shame in my opinion.

The article below attempts to explain why the UK shouldn't leave the European Union with sly wordage
and graphs that portray people who support the disintegration of western standards as defective, racist
individuals who see their teacup half-empty instead of half-full.

And the way they do it is by changing the blame aspect from the criminal being responsible for their actions
to a lack of law enforcement, an ideal the BBC suggests an individual cannot hold within themselves.

Robberies are committed by people who decide to steal, that's it... no vague psychological proposals of
guilt-through-parental molestation or a deep-seated hatred of those who've acquired such trappings,
just the simple act of will to commit a crime for personal gain.

The person who steals is responsible for stealing, but for the BBC to acknowledge that fact, they would have
to face the reality that crime figures have increased due to something else increasing in the UK within the
same time frame.

As of writing this, there is no Police Officer outside a home across my street. Yet no one is illegally entering
that house or breaking into the garage to steal my neighbour's car. I haven't taken it upon myself to do it, I'm
close by, I know of the house-owner's everyday comings and goings and the familiarity could be good cover
to hide the crime.

Then why don't I...?  Simply put, it's called self-responsibility in a social domain. I don't need for a Police Officer
to tell me it's wrong because it's just against agreed rules and everyone knows this. But somehow, the BBC resist
the obvious and churn out this upper-class rubbish and ignore poverty as a motive and a lack of standards to abide
by those agreed rules.

Quote:Robbery rise blamed on police cuts and rise in smartphone use.

'Robberies are increasing at a faster rate in England and Wales than in any other major developed
country, research seen by the BBC suggests. A new report says the wide use of smartphones and
cuts to police patrols are behind the rise.

It also found some 269,000 young people were involved in or at risk of violence last year.
The Home Office said it was funding a police recruitment drive and helping officers to use their powers.

The new report from criminal justice consultants Crest Advisory examined robbery trends across Western
nations - including Germany, Australia and France.
From 2010 to 2014, offences were on the decline almost everywhere.

Since then, however, there have been small increases in five countries - and a 33% rise in England and
Wales, which researchers said was "significant" because robbery acted as an "entry point" for violent

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6385]

Harvey Redgrave, managing director of Crest Advisory, said: "It acts as a bit of a gateway offence into more
serious violence, whether that's because young people are being asked to carry out robberies as an initiation
into gangs [or] whether it's because they're paying off debts."

The report suggests the increase may be connected to the availability of smartphones, with eight in 10 people
in the UK using them, higher than any other country. It also cites pressures on policing, after 21,000 officer posts
were cut between 2010 and 2018, pointing out that only 7% of robbery cases result in a suspect being charged
compared with 21% four years ago.

"The opportunity to commit robberies may be greater here than in other countries," said Mr Redgrave.
"Criminals respond to incentives and if they feel they're not being effectively policed - often these are opportunistic
crimes - we're likely to see an increase in these types of offences."

The Home Office suggested that changes in the way forces log robberies were partly responsible for the rise.
"We are pleased with improvements in police recording, which have contributed to reported increases in robbery
offences," said a spokesperson.

The spokesperson added: "We are giving police the tools they need to keep families, communities and our country
safe, including recruiting 20,000 new police officers and making it easier for them to use stop-and-search powers."
The report also analysed how many 10 to 17-year-olds experienced violence in England and Wales last year, producing
an estimate of between 145,000 to 269,000, which is 5% of the under-18 population...'

Oh my, the BBC-generated graph tells us that crime is less in the other European countries and articles that Wallfire
kindly provides are complete nonsense. The hundred dead Londoners this year are obviously due to voting to leave the
EU and the lack of law enforcement has helped either.

And by the way, I didn't fail to notice how Scotland was separated from England and Wales in the graph, a cunning nod
to another agenda the BBC like to sabre-rattle at.

The BBC also comment that maybe it's the manner that the UK's Police Force collect the robbery information that implies
a rise in this type of crime and not that robberies have increased. Again, the individuals, the organised gangs and the lack
of social-accountability are never mentioned because it may single out sections of that society and that could be connected
to one of the ideals the EU adheres to.

Sweden isn't crime-riddled -as long as we discuss robberies, France, Denmark and Germany have seriously reduced their
robbery crimes and now only poor anti-EU England and Wales are suffering under the continuous act of thievery.

If I was travelling from one country to another, I certainly wouldn't want to sail over to this little island during such a terrible
outbreak of lawlessness.

When it comes to today's legacy-media's prowess at its job, I have to agree with Tim Pool on the disgraceful ease
they shovel this shit at the public without any desire for research.
Take the latest Elizabeth Warren outrage regarding her statement that she was thrown out of a teaching job because
she was pregnant.

Here's an article from CBS that plays tricks with today's perception of employment perceptions and the different ones
from the early seventies. It's disingenuous to do this , however it does maintain a narrative.

It's the ruse of 'Nowism' I detest, the idea that with weasel-words and logical fallacies, the smear-merchants in the
Press attempt to convince their readers that your current way of thinking can travel back in time and be used on past

Don't get me wrong, I know I'm not doing a Paul Revere here when I chunter-on about the media's duplicity. What
I'm getting at is they're shite at it and there are more than just Journalists jobs at stake here too, not everyone has
a desk.
They need to hide their conniving better.

Forwards to Mrs. Warren, which one might puzzle about why she kept her first husband's name.
What's wrong with her current husband's surname...? 'Mann'...oh I see, we're back to the Captain Marvel syndrome.

Here's Wikipedia's version of Elizabeth Warren's early years.

Quote:Warren was born Elizabeth Ann Herring in Oklahoma City on June 22, 1949, the fourth child of middle-class parents
Pauline (née Reed, 1912–1995) and Donald Jones Herring (1911–1997).

Warren became a star member of the debate team at Northwest Classen High School and won the state high school
debating championship. She also won a debate scholarship to George Washington University (GWU) at the age of 16.
She initially aspired to be a teacher, but left GWU after two years in 1968 to marry Jim Warren, whom she met in high

Warren and her husband moved to Houston, where he was employed by IBM.
She enrolled in the University of Houston and graduated in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science degree in speech pathology
and audiology.

The Warrens moved to New Jersey when Jim received a job transfer.
She soon became pregnant and decided to stay at home to care for their daughter, Amelia.
After Amelia turned two, Warren enrolled in Rutgers Law School at Rutgers University–Newark.
Shortly before graduating in 1976, Warren became pregnant with their second child, Alexander.
She received her J.D. and passed the bar examination.

The Warrens divorced in 1978.
Two years later, Warren married law professor Bruce H. Mann on July 12, but kept her first husband's surname.

The initial view could be that Elizabeth followed her husband due to his job-transfer from Houston to New Jersey,
but the whole episode of an assumed oppression from her fellow teachers and School Board is omitted.
I wonder why that was.

Quote:"Warren stands by account of being pushed out of her first teaching job because of pregnancy"

'On the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren often tells the story of how she was fired from her first teaching job in 1971
because she was pregnant, a pivotal moment that ultimately put her on a path to Harvard, the United States Senate,
and quite possibly the presidency. But recently, several media outlets have questioned the veracity of these claims.

In an exclusive interview with CBS News on Monday evening, Warren said she stands by her characterizations of
why she left the job. 

"All I know is I was 22 years old, I was 6 months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was
going to someone else. The principal said they were going to hire someone else for my job," she said.
Warren has repeatedly said that her principal "showed [her] the door" after discovering she was pregnant at the end
of the 1971 school year.

The episode is pivotal to her life story, in that it dashed her dreams of remaining a public school teacher and launched
her reluctantly down the path to public service. Fresh out of the University of Houston, Warren was hired by the Riverdale
Board of Education in New Jersey as a speech pathologist for the 1970-1971 school year.

Since she began her campaign for the presidency, she has repeatedly said that she was "shown the door" after just a
year as a result of her pregnancy...'

Personally, the expression "All I know..." is the teller. Mrs Warren's current opinion is that she was pushed out and
regardless of the social perceptions of the seventies, she's playing on the appearance of victim-hood because she
knows it's like honey to a bear.
She's doubling down.

Quote:'...Interviews with retired teachers who worked for the Riverdale Board of Education at the same time as Warren suggest
that while they do not remember Warren or the circumstances of her leaving the school, the workplace culture at the time
may have left Warren with no option but to move on when her pregnancy became apparent.

Two retired teachers who worked at Riverdale Elementary for over 30 years, including the year Warren was there, told CBS
News that they don't remember anyone being explicitly fired due to pregnancy during their time at the school.
But Trudy Randall and Sharon Ercalano each said that a non-tenured, pregnant employee like Warren would have had little
job security at Riverdale in 1971, seven years before the Pregnancy Discrimination Act was passed...'

Anyone born in the sixties or earlier will appreciate the differences between now and then, just as the two retired teachers
infer in the above piece. Are we to assume that everyone working at CBS were born in 2016 and had no access to historical
societal-conduct information whilst they wrote this?!

I'm wondering how Mao is deemed in their minds.

Quote:'...After leaving her position at Riverdale Elementary, Warren took education and accounting courses at local New Jersey
colleges before applying to Rutgers Law School in 1973, according to her law school application.
She graduated in 1976, again "visibly pregnant," and became a lecturer in law at Rutgers in 1977...'

Which isn't that bad, Amelia Warren was born on September 2, 1971 and as the Wikipedia article says, Elizabeth
"decided to stay at home to care for their daughter, Amelia."  We're not talking about an extinguished second
income having an adverse effect on the Warren family. When a young mother can afford to train for Law School
only three years after her child is born, most people today may be wondering how she made ends-meet.

Or is this all just another example of 'woe-is-me-'cos-I'm-a-woman' routine...? and just like the majority of the
fat-cats in the political game and their fawning media-cronies, this crap is getting a bit old.
Roll-on 2020.

It's the first day in November of 2019, the rain-sodden Halloween pumpkins have lost their manic grins and now sit
on doorsteps with charred sneers of swindled contempt. To some, it may be emblematic of how the public of Great
Britain -who voted to leave the European Union, feel right around now.

The idea that many in the world were raised with the belief that if a group were asked to make a decision, then the
majority who arrived at a determination would see that verdict implemented.
In the case of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on 31st October, that accepted process is no longer

Of course, it sets a precedence for any future decisions requested from the British public and the interpretation of
the result. In a hyperbolic scenario, it could be suggested that for a person living in this country wants to fulfil a wish,
that person should vote against it!

The pros-and-cons of being a partner in the European Union are difficult to research due to bias from each faction.
Objective truth is hazy because of the lame-stream media's manner and political rhetoric from a complacent Parliament
who's protective 'bubble' in Westminster has hampered their perception of the people they're supposed to represent.

If the UK had left on 31st March 29, a proposal offered by ex-Prime Minister Theresa May three years after the referendum,
then the agreed EU regulations would have seen the UK spending three years 'weaning' themselves off the disciplines that
the other twenty-seven countries adhere to.

With trade between the UK and these twenty-seven nations still paramount to the EU project and Great Britain, the 'Leaving'
plan was originally designed to utilise that time to adjust any accords that involved tariffs, Custom rules and security.

But in an environment where private and public companies would scrutinise the leaving process, accommodate their
businesses to use these changes and seek out other possible customer across the world, a decision that all the political
parties in the United Kingdom agreed to abide by was halted on the day of remembering the dead and the change of

I have never known such a time when a democratic country arrives at a result from a binary question and the conclusion
is -not only ignored, it is argued against with poor contention. However and if you'll allow me, I do believe I know why.

There's been a fundamental change in the way that most of the populace in the first-world countries have consciously
become in their way of understanding what social leadership and communal awareness actually is.

A sentient group will go one way after intermutual acknowledgement is arrived at and the person deemed strongest of the
group is charged with the task of going forward with the agreed plan and testing for pitfalls -genuine pitfalls, that the group
may not have included in their thinking.

Checking that all is safe, the colony can proceed under the assurance that their chosen 'leader' has cleared a way of perils
and therefore, increased the chances of the group continuing to exist and possibly thrive. This idea of single-hegemony is
our basic tenet of tribal existence and has the luxury of advantage in two ways.
Remember, even a leader has to sleep and many alert eyes bring easier dreams!

But today, that type of overall continuation has been eroded. Simply put, we've become soft, complacent and weak.

Those same first-world communities believe the bar of merit, personal strength and natural conduction, should be lowered
to cater for the lesser, those who actually benefit from members of their group that are supposed to genuinely strive to
improve the whole. Those who succeed in thier individual skills are now frowned upon and asked to perform to a level
below their standard.

Those thought to have such commanding aptitudes are now graded on visual appearance, a predilection towards empathy
and always displaying an air of altruism. Again, feelings, emotions and a lowering of expectations.

Whether the above theory is self-inflicted due to the multitude of comfort, the fall of religious disciplines or a natural outcome
when an Empire has lived too long, I don't know. But if it's been part of a long-term infiltration scheme by others outside the
group, then it should certainly investigated.

But then again, how would you know the cause if you discovered it? A person who's breathed water all of their lives will
certainly balk if there's evidence that they're supposed to inhaling air and the ironic part is that in the current social climate,
you cannot even guarantee a democratically arrived-at result for which idea would benefit you!!

Strength is seen as a negative and I believe that comes from too-much time spent accepting excessive indulgence in pleasure
and luxury. Nobody is saying you should wear sackcloth and ashes and no one is suggesting that bread and water will make
you a more virtuous person, but democracy must be agreed on as ground we must not tread lightly.
But today, the footprints are there for all to see.

No, there was a saying that went 'Decisions are made by those who turn up' and sadly, it seems in today's society, that is no
longer true. Just like those same smoke-smudged gourds sitting in the morning November rain, we'll have to wait and see
where the UK ends up.

Way back in a time I used to watch television... and I mean when I was in my teens and early twenties and there were
only four channels to watch on your goggle-box, when it came to a Saturday night the idea of entertainment was a genre
far removed from what it is today.
It's true that some regions of the country had local channels that broadcast for part of the day, but the Government-funded
one and it's advertisement-paying rival, were really the only winners.

The UK's evenings of the weekend consisted mainly of game-shows derived from other countries that were morphed
into programmes suitable for a British middle-class family and comedy duos who's repartee would only occasionally
stray into the risque terrain of underwear and saucy window-cleaners.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6657]

Of course, we had American shows like The A Team, Knight Rider, McGyver and a British version of 'Gladiators', where
a range of well-muscled men and women competed in a strange obstacle course.

All compulsive to a person who embraced the religion of the Blue Pill and the only tiny caveat would be that all of these
audience-pulling programmes were broadcast on BBC1, ITV (Independent Television) or the brand new channel with the
avant-garde title of 'Channel 4'!

However, there was another channel, a lonely outsider for Saturday evenings that spluttered and farted to draw an audience
from the merriment of these highly-coloured broadcasts where eyebrow-wiggling comedians hinted a hidden innuendo or
some burnt-out, boozed-reddened lounge-lizard crooned a song that your mother liked.
It's name was BBC 2.

I'd grown up from the sixties believing BBC 2 had only twin roles to play as a broadcasting medium.
One. to show English cricket from on weekdays for those who enjoyed the sport, but had to endure working in the
House of Commons and the House of Lords.
Two. Offer restrained documentaries on British history, strangulated plays involving Russian dissidents back-lit in lonely
settings and once a year, that stalwart of tennis, Wimbledon.

Now, I'd venture that Saturday nights on BBC 2 holds the same impecunious hold over the British television watchers and plods
on with only it's stiff-upper lip for company.

So maybe that's why...

Quote:Prince Andrew speaks to BBC about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6658]

'The Duke of York has spoken for the first time about his links to Jeffrey Epstein in an interview with the BBC.
He spoke to BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis in a interview recorded at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.

Maitlis said it was a "no holds barred interview", which will be broadcast on BBC Two at 21:00 GMT on Saturday.
The duke faces serious claims over his ties to the 66-year-old US financier, who took his own life while awaiting
trial on sex-trafficking charges.

In 2015, Prince Andrew was named in court papers as part of a US civil case against Epstein.
One of Epstein's accusers, Virginia Roberts - now Virginia Giuffre - said she was forced to have sex with the duke
three times between 1999 and 2002, in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein.
At the time she was under-age according to Florida state's law.

The details were later officially struck from the court records when a judge ruled they were unnecessary to the case,
saying they were "immaterial and impertinent" to the "central claim".

Separately, a woman called Johanna Sjoberg alleged that the duke touched her breast while they sat on a couch in
Epstein's Manhattan apartment in 2001 in documents from a defamation case.

Buckingham Palace has issued strong denials of all allegations against the duke.
In 2015 a statement said that "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors" by the duke was "categorically

Maybe it's the only slot they have available...? Which wasn't something Epstein ever worried about! Sorry.

The circus known as the Impeachment Enquiry finally folded up its tent on Thursday as those who talked
long and seriously about a Ukrainian business being corrupt, the President's concern of the connection
between a prominent US citizen on its board of Directors and possible influence in the 2106 election, left
DC in order to celebrate Thanksgiving.

So it can't be that serious.

But the dying media need some shite to report on that doesn't ruin the Democrat's narrative. So with relish, they
jumped back on the 'all-men-are-rapey' wagon and celebrated another kind of turkey-carver-up, that of having
a brave lady giving her testimony.

Fiona Hill was a former official at the National Security Council specialising in Russian and European affairs.
Being a Bishop Auckland-born English lass - a town very close to where Boy In A Dress has his shed, he and
I were fascinated by Fiona's North-East English accent leaking out as she explained her role in the bureaucratic
wrangle that is supposed to reveal some-sort of US invasive shenanigans.

Many times, semi-posh English tones in an American political location can seem to add meat to the bones of a
debate as it tends to imply sobriety and mature introspection to the interactions. Maybe it's a subconscious belief
of wisdom from an older country that may have already endured the same problems in its past and discovered the
answers along the way, I don't know.

But what I do know is that Fiona was not only lending a feel of cultivated introspection to the proceedings, from the
fact that I have the same accent as her, I also know she was merely 'filler' for the Hearing! 

Just like many others who had testified before her, she and David Holmes went into detail in explaining it wasn't
their fault that the new Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky couldn't have his Trump-meeting and the supposed
delayed military aid, it was Trump himself.

With Chairman Adam Schiff steering the Hearing back towards questions about Zelensky being asked to snoop
for President Trump into Presidential-hopeful Joe Biden's son being on the board of a dodgy gas company, Fiona
and her rubber-faced cohort attempted to answer the queries that they really had no idea about.

But again, the lilt of her voice told me far more than the detached features of the female former official.
In my opinion, Fiona really didn't have anything to encourage the impeachment of the US President and mainly spent
her time at the Hearing with interruptions of abstract elocution that held nothing except to tell a fellow-kinsman from
the Land of Prince Bishops that:  'T'wasn't me-like'!!

However, USA Today fell back on the trope that all women are temerarious and intransigent, and men should show
some goddam respect!

Quote:Fierce, focused and fearless': Fiona Hill emerges as a principled voice in impeachment inquiry.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=6690]

'As another long day of public impeachment inquiry testimony on Thursday wore on, attention turned to one
figure who expounded on the greater importance of the subject matter at hand: protecting American democracy.

Dr. Fiona Hill, a former National Security Council official, delivered punchy lines of testimony and asserted her
position as a witness in the inquiry who would present facts exactly as she knew them to be, persistent in the
face of accusations of partisanship.

Hill rebutted the Republican theory that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 U.S. election and answered questions about
the pressure campaign President Donald Trump is accused of levying against the nation. Testifying alongside David
Holmes, a State Department official in the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, Hill at times used her platform to explain he
 ideals of U.S. foreign policy and democracy...'

Filler, see?!

Quote:She stated that it is in the best interest of both political parties to protect that democracy from the threats of Russian
interference. "Right now Russian security services and their proxies have geared up to repeat their interference in the
2020 election," Hill said. "We are running out of time to stop them."

She expressed the frustration of her role as a nonpartisan State Department official who had observed an unusual process
of diplomacy unfold between U.S. officials and Ukraine. "There was, let's just say, a different channel in operation in relations
to Ukraine, one that was domestic and political in nature...," Hill said.

It goes on, but what made me smile was the pig-tail story.

Quote:'...As in her previous closed-door testimony, Hill's wit and humour were on full display Thursday. And her display of resilience
did not go unmissed by viewers.

A profile published about Hill in The New York Times and shared widely Thursday recounted the story of when Hill was 11 years
old and a boy set fire to her hair in the middle of a test. She confirmed at the hearing that she put the fire out with her hands an
 resumed her test.

"It had some very unfortunate consequences. Afterwards, my mother gave me a bowl haircut," Hill said to laughter in the room. 
"I think it underscores the fact that you speak truth, that you are steely, and I truly respect that," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif...'

I'll tell you, if you had pig-tails in Bishop Auckland back during the mid-seventies, you were in the snobby class and eleven year-old
snobs didn't carry matches into a classroom. That was for the subjacent classes who ignored the teacher and thought about doing
things after school. You could've had a pony-tail, but not pig-tails... this isn't a yarn from Johanna Spyri!!!

Christ, I doubt that any of them would've even smoked at eleven...! I did, but I couldn't afford cigarettes (fags) back then and
I'd suggest that neither could many other eleven year-old kids in the North-East of England.

No, Mrs. Hill (Keen) -in my opinion, was at the Hearings to just offer gender neutrality and a British accent.
