BCfm’s weekly Politics Show presented by Tony Gosling with Irish Republican Labour activist Martin Summers has been forced off FM, now online only, being ‘rested due to the pandemic’ on 24 March 2020 by BCfm charity boss Pat Hart. This Internet only NOT The BCfm Politics Show is now available 17:00-19:00 live on Fridays. Pat Hart has replaced us with a dumbed-down show called The Bristol Agenda. If you’d like to request our reinstatement you can contact the BCfm board and manager here.
We have been ready to go live on BCfm’s FM server remotely, awaiting the go-ahead from Pat Hart since 16th March. Initially we were told ‘In the light of government and Ofcom guidance’ Pat Hart’s team decided ‘not to broadcast discussion or political shows’ that ‘might put the FM licence at risk’, because they ‘don’t want the burden of dealing with potential Ofcom complaints’. As it turns out ‘bad health and medical advice’ came from official government decisions and announcements which we were’t able to criticise on FM and thousands are dead unnecessarily. Now we’ve been told a wider ‘reorganisation’ is underway and this show may be allowed to return to FM in November 2020.

Tim Kent, Lib Dem Councillor Hengrove and Whitchurch Park on Bristol City Council, joins Tony and Martin. How Mayor Marvin has been preventing the usual scrutiny from Councillors citing ‘commercial confidentiality’. Will local elections happen in May? Bristol City Council cover-ups risk warning by cross-party committee Those checking on major decisions ‘without access to all the facts’ Fears of “cover-ups”, bad decisions and taxpayers’ money being squandered by Bristol City Council have been raised by a cross-party group of councillors. Audit committee members, including its chairman from the ruling Labour group, are worried that potential mismanagement and blunders could go unchecked because they are being denied access to vital documents. The authority’s top legal adviser has said councillors receive information which is “reasonably necessary for them to discharge their duties” and that improvements have been made, including scrapping the requirement for elected members to sign confidentiality agreements. Audit committee’s main job is to ensure City Hall’s governance, risks, finance and control systems are working properly. But vice-chairman Green Cllr Clive Stevens told a meeting of full council that they were being prevented from doing the crucial checks, including having access blocked to some exempt papers containing confidential or commercially sensitive information, despite the fact scrutiny councillors are allowed to see them. He said: “Without proper access rights to information there might be opportunities for cover-ups of bad or risky decisions, project overspends or worse. “Without access to all the facts we can’t define what we want checked. “We have to half guess. We have to interrogate officers who may have differing motivations or even instructions from above. “It’s a national issue made worse here due to Bristol’s governance arrangements.” Committee member Lib Dem Cllr Tim Kent told the meeting on Tuesday, January 12: “As a council you should be worried. “You are getting members of the audit committee from all parties saying ‘we are concerned’. “We are concerned we don’t have the right to access information on your behalf.

Paul Embry, author of ‘Despised: Why the Modern Left Despises the Working Class’, on how Labour lost touch with their traditional voter base. The future economy after Covid 19 with growing tech taking jobs. Despised: Why the Modern Left Loathes the Working Class (Hardback) by Paul Embery The typical contemporary Labour MP is almost certain to be a university-educated Europhile who is more comfortable in the leafy enclaves of north London than the party’s historic heartlands. As a result, Labour has become radically out of step with the culture and values of working-class Britain. Drawing on his background as a firefighter and trade unionist from Dagenham, Paul Embery argues that this disconnect has been inevitable since the Left political establishment swallowed a poisonous brew of economic and social liberalism. They have come to despise traditional working-class values of patriotism, family and faith and instead embraced globalisation, rapid demographic change and a toxic, divisive brand of identity politics. Embery contends that the Left can only revive if it speaks once again to the priorities of working-class people by combining socialist economics with the cultural politics of belonging, place and community. No one who wants to really understand why our politics has become so dysfunctional and what the Left can do to fix it can afford to miss this authentic, insightful and passionate book.
Neil Oliver on lockdowns and keeping a structure to your day. Neil Oliver has told Mike Graham that a generation of young people who were excited about their lives “are now saying what’s the point?”
Speaking to talkRADIO on his regular segment, the broadcaster was concerned following conversations with his own teenage daughter, who had spoken to him about the impact the coronavirus lockdown was having her. “My teenage daughter is talking to lots of people her own age, particularly girls. What they are saying to each other is “what’s the point?”. That is desperate. I’m talking about ordinary people. People who were excitedly talking about university, travel. Not a year after those sentiments they’re saying “what’s the point?”. That means without some kind of powerful intervention from the authorities, the generation coming up have internalised the idea that none of this is going away. My daughter doesn’t think that lockdown is going to stop. They’ve internalised the idea that lockdown is a fact of life.” Mike agreed, saying “the Government is blissfully unaware of” the situation.

Part Two – News Review and Investigative Reports:
Dr Epstein says six million votes won by Google in 2020 presidential election – Dr. Robert Epstein: Google bias shifted at least 6 million votes! Harvard-trained Democrat discloses findings from 2020 election research By Art Moore Published November 24, 2020 at 7:29pm Google’s search-engine manipulation in the 2020 election could have shifted a minimum of 6 million votes to Democrat Joe Biden, according to research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein. The Harvard-trained researcher, a Democratic voter, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night he had 733 field agents in the swing states of Arizona, North Carolina and Florida collecting data. “Google search results were strongly biased in favor of liberals and Democrats,” he said. “This was not true on Bing or Yahoo.” The researchers collected 500,000 election-related searches, which is about 30 times more data than his team collected in 2016. They found four years ago, as WND reported in an interviews with Epstein, that biased results generated by Google’s search algorithm likely impacted undecided voters in a way that gave at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton and as many as 10.4 million. Epstein noted the bias “was being shown to pretty much every demographic group we looked at, including conservatives.” “Conservatives got slightly more bias in their search results than liberals did. How do you account for that?” he asked. The researchers also found what he called a “smoking gun.” “We found a period of days when the vote reminder on Google’s homepage was being sent only to liberals not one of our conservative field agents received a vote reminder during those days,” he said. After going public with the findings, Google “backed off,” said Epstein “They literally shut off that manipulation that night, and so for four days before the election they were showing vote reminders to everyone, finally,” he said. “The bottom line at the moment is that these manipulations, the ones that we’ve so far quantified, could easily have shifted at least 6 million votes in just one direction.” He said that figure is the “bare mininum” in which he can be confident. “The maximum we haven’t even begun to estimate that yet because we have so much data to look at,” he said. Epstein said he has field agents monitoring the two Georgia runoff elections that will decide the majority in the U.S. Senate.

10 tech billionaires make $400bn since Covid, possibly $640bn. Hedge funds back mRNA vaccines as they are quicker to market. Politicisation of vaccines. Ten billionaires reap $400bn boost to wealth during pandemic Covid-19 pushed many into poverty but brought huge benefits for some of the wealthiest, renewing calls for fairer taxes Ten of the richest people in the world have boosted their already vast wealth by more than $400bn (£296bn) since the coronavirus pandemic began as their businesses were boosted by lockdowns and financial crises across the globe. The extra wealth accumulated by the 10 men – approximately $450bn, using Forbes figures – over the past nine months is more than the £284bn the British government is estimated to have spent on tackling the pandemic and the economic damage it has wrought on its 66 million people. In a related report, the campaign group Americans for Tax Fairness estimates the collective wealth of America’s 651 billionaires has risen by $1.1tn over the same period. Frank Clemente of Americans for Tax Fairness said: “Their pandemic profits are so immense that America’s billionaires could pay for a major Covid relief bill and still not lose a dime of their pre-virus riches. Their wealth growth is so great that they alone could provide a $3,000 stimulus payment to every man, woman and child in the country, and still be richer than they were nine months ago.”
How billionaires saw their net worth increase by half a trillion dollars during the pandemic 40 million Americans filed for unemployment during the pandemic, but billionaires saw their net worth increase by half a trillion dollars. This isn’t the first time billionaires have seen gains while others dealt with loss, and it tends to tie back to two things. First, the government disproportionately gives more aid to larger companies. Then, when the stock market bounces back, the unequal bailouts mean that the wealthy still have money on hand to invest and thus profit, while the middle and lower classes do not. Wealth-friendly tax laws and loopholes then keep those billionaires at the top. Knowing all of this, some are advocating for policies to help level the playing field and create change. This is the unemployment rate during the COVID-19 pandemic. And this is Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ net worth during that same time span. From March to June 2020, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos saw his wealth rise by an estimated $48 billion. The founder of the video-conferencing platform Zoom grew his nest egg by over $2.5 billion, and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s net worth increased by $15.7 billion.
Putin asks Biden if he will sign the new Start Treaty on nuclear weapons.
Antony Blinken has taken over from Mike Pompeo as US Secretary of State – he served under Hillary Clinton and makes his money fixing deals between the arms cartels and US government though his WestExec Advisors firm, modelled on Kissinger Associates. Blinken Says Iran Must Comply With Nuclear Deal Before the US Does Iran has said they will return to compliance if the US lifts sanctions since the US violated the deal firstDave DeCamp Posted onJanuary 27, 2021CategoriesNewsTagsBiden, Iran In a sign that the US is a long way from lifting sanctions on Iran, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US will not return to the nuclear deal until Iran comes back into compliance. “President Biden has been very clear in saying that if Iran comes back into full compliance with its obligations under the JCPOA, the United States would do the same thing,” Blinken said at a press conference on Wednesday. “But we are a long ways from that point. Iran is out of compliance on a number of fronts. And it would take some time … for it to come back into compliance in time for us then to assess whether it was meeting its obligations,” he said.
US sails ships into the Black Sea – and Russia deploys guided missiles in Crimea – US Navy Sends Three Warships Into Black Sea, Russia Deploys Missile System US naval activity in the Black Sea declined in 2020, NATO hopes to see it increase this year = The US Navy has three warships operating in the Black Sea, a region where NATO is looking to increase its naval presence. The USS Porter, a guided-missile destroyer, entered the waters on Thursday, joining two US ships that were already there. The USS Donald Cook, another guided-missile destroyer, and the oiler USNS Laramie transited into the Black Sea on Sunday. Russia noticed the US warships operating near its coast and deployed a mobile coastal defense anti-ship system in Crimea. The Russian military said it tracked the USS Donald Cook as it entered the Black Sea. Russia hawks and NATO are hoping the US keeps up the military activity in the Black Sea this year. According to Stars and Stripes, the US Navy spent 82 days in the Black Sea in 2020, down 19 days from the previous year. While the US and Russia reached an agreement on extending New START, the vital nuclear treaty, the Biden administration is maintaining a hostile stance towards Moscow, and more US-NATO military cooperation is expected.
Protests in Russia against arrest of Navalny …The Saker… Dress Rehearsal Of Color Revolution In Russia Anti-government protests under the pretext of the detention of the notorious Russian opposition leader Navalny took place in various cities across the country. They were characterized by underwhelming attendance, claims of grandeur and awkward attempts at spreading violence. Protests were immediately endorsed by the Washington establishment. Notably, the United States Embassy in Moscow published detailed times and locations of unsanctioned rallies. Some Western leaders have made direct calls for an escalation of violence. The entire situation resembled a staged performance that took place just days after the US President Joe Biden was inaugurated. The Russian scare narrative has already been pushed by the US Democrats and the US MSM for a long time. It is expected that the new Administration policy regarding Moscow will become even more hawkish. The detention of Alexey Navalny will be simply used as a justification for further aggressive actions against Russia. It fits perfectly with the Washington concept of cultivating an image of an unpredictable and irreconcilable foreign enemy to American values and democracy in general. It is quite evident that Alexey Navalny, his sponsors, teammates and supporters were fully aware that he would get arrested when he returned to Russia. This could have been entirely avoided if he simply returned a bit earlier. He would thus meet the terms of his suspended sentence over the corruption and bribery in Russia. But then there would be no reason to protest. Navalny even published a dramatic address saying that he had no desire to kill himself, to avoid any potential scenarios and being used as a sacrifice for the greater neo-liberal good. As the hubs of the neo-liberal agenda in Russia, Moscow and Saint Petersburg hosted the largest protests. Protests in other regions were much smaller. However, there were even those protesting in extreme temperatures, showing that there is a motivated and unrelenting core. The protest attendance, against the entire population of the cities, however, pales and shows an unimpressive turnout. Reports of attendance vary, with some claiming at least 40,000 gathered in Moscow, with the authorities putting the number at merely 4,000. Others claimed that the numbers somewhere in the middle. In Saint Petersburg, Kommersant reported that there was an attendance of about 5,000. Other cities with a significant protest presence include Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok and Nizhny Novgorod.
Virtual WEF meeting: Putin’s speech – Russian President Putin Delivers Speech at Virtual World Economic Forum President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Schwab, dear Klaus, Colleagues, I have been to Davos many times, attending the events organised by Mr Schwab, even back in the 1990s. Klaus [Schwab] just recalled that we met in 1992. Indeed, during my time in St Petersburg, I visited this important forum many times. I would like to thank you for this opportunity today to convey my point of view to the expert community that gathers at this world-renowned platform thanks to the efforts of Mr Schwab. First of all, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to greet all the World Economic Forum participants. It is gratifying that this year, despite the pandemic, despite all the restrictions, the forum is still continuing its work. Although it is limited to online participation, the forum is taking place anyway, providing an opportunity for participants to exchange their assessments and forecasts during an open and free discussion, partially compensating for the increasing lack of in-person meetings between leaders of states, representatives of international business and the public in recent months. All this is very important now, when we have so many difficult questions to answer. The current forum is the first one in the beginning of the third decade of the 21st century and, naturally, the majority of its topics are devoted to the profound changes that are taking place in the world. Indeed, it is difficult to overlook the fundamental changes in the global economy, politics, social life and technology. The coronavirus pandemic, which Klaus just mentioned, which became a serious challenge for humankind, only spurred and accelerated the structural changes, the conditions for which had been created long ago. The pandemic has exacerbated the problems and imbalances that built up in the world before. There is every reason to believe that differences are likely to grow stronger.
Natalie Minis, former journalist, now podcaster, on who Bill Gates is and what he funds. – Is the UK still a free country? We’re more controlled than ever before, our so-called democracy is deeply flawed and our politicians are like puppets. I’m Natalie Minnis, and I try to think critically, to see past the political manipulation and propaganda. It’s not about left and right, or black and white. I also like to use lessons from the past to help us think about where our future might be heading. Governments have been herding us like sheep recently, and they’ve been steering us in the direction of an enormous economic crisis. I think we need more decentralisation, and We need to turn off our TVs, turn on our minds and start thinking for ourselves. I would like to share my ideas and learn from others.

Prince Charles wants world population reduced by three-quarters – yet studies show the hoarding elite are to blame, there are plenty of the Earth’s resources to go round – We produce enough food to feed 10 billion people. So why does hunger still exist? ‘Global population is too high’. Prince Charles warns that we will need ‘four planets like earth to survive’ as we just ‘take and take’ and urges companies to focus on the ‘green recovery’ following coronavirus The Prince of Wales spoke via recorded message from Balmoral, Aberdeenshire He stated that at current rate we would need ‘four planets like earth to survive’ Prince Charles was championing today’s launch of sustainable platform RE:TV By MILLY VINCENT The Prince of Wales has warned that we will need ‘four planets like earth to survive or provide enough for everybody’. Speaking today for Climate Week 2020, His Royal Highness urged companies to focus on ‘the green recovery’ following coronavirus, adding that ‘there is a better world out there’. Prince Charles said: ‘We’ve so degraded natural systems, eco-systems, biodiversity, that it’s becoming increasingly impossible for nature to sustain us. ‘At the moment it’s all take, take. Now we’ve reached the situation where we really need four planets like earth to survive or provide enough for everybody. ‘And there is a better world out there. We can operate our industries far better’ He added that he was aware many industries were already dealing with strained operations from the coronavirus pandemic, but due to the ‘challenges’ such as these ‘hitting us in the face’ he had noticed an renewed interest in issues affecting the planet that sustains us. Prince Charles, who spoke via a recorded message from Balmoral, Aberdeenshire, said: ‘Industries have obviously had to focus on dealing with the immediate impact of this horrendous pandemic, but the fascinating thing is I think a lot of people have still wanted fortunately to focus on the green recovery.’ In a speech opening Climate Week earlier today the Prince of Wales also called for global commitments to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 to be brought forward by two decades – because the current target ‘suggests we have room to delay’. Charles’ comment, made in a speech to launch Climate Week, is at odds with the government’s plan to cut carbon emissions to net zero within 30 years. The heir to the throne, who has been an environmental campaigner since the early 1970s, said: ‘With the planetary emergency so critical – with the permafrost melting in Siberia for instance, producing dire effects on global warming, and with the Pantanal in Brazil being consumed by unprecedented numbers of fires – we can no longer go on like this, as if there was no tomorrow and no ultimate reckoning for our abuse of nature.
Dr Vernon Coleman on Prince Charles 1993-2021 audacious ‘eco-fascist’ Agenda 21 programme. Now moving on to become Agenda 2030. THE FULL, SCARY STORY OF AGENDA 21 – Dr Vernon Coleman – January 25, 2021 – And then in 1992, the United Nations held a conference in Brazil and Agenda 21 was born. This was the start of real, red-blooded communitarianism and the beginning of the end of individualism. Before you could say Tony Blair or Bill Clinton or even Al Gore and a DVD which would get three out of ten for accuracy, the world was set to change. Loads of big hitters came in at this point. Prince Charles, son of Queen Elizabeth and famous mostly for having large ears and talking to plants, was one of those who saw this a quick way to become terribly important and a world class hypocrite. Charles spent much of the following decades flying around the world in private aeroplanes telling people that they mustn’t fly around the world in aeroplanes. It was clear that there was a ton of money to be made out of carbon trading – a completely nonsensical piece of chicanery which changed absolutely nothing except the size of the bank balances of the people running the carbon trading scam. They planned to dumb down education, close all small companies, empty rural areas, force people to live in tower blocks in smart cities and shut down farms. Food could be grown in laboratories which would, in due course, end up being owned by people like Bill Gates. It was also agreed that it was necessary to force the simple-minded citizens to learn how to take orders and to become compliant slaves. And so recycling was invented. It didn’t matter that all the freshly washed yoghurt cartons ended up being transported to countries thousands of miles away to be burnt or buried. The recycling wasn’t the point. This was all about compliance. In America, the events of 9/11 enabled the US to create some wonderfully oppressive new laws. The threat of weapons of mass destruction enabled politicians to take away whatever privacy and freedom we had left. Bits and pieces of terrorism allowed other countries to bring in their own bossy-boots laws. And diseases were used as threats too. AIDS and all those funny influenzas were such a threat that we all had to change our lives and accept orders from those who had decided they were our betters.

Roy Pumfrey from Stop Hinkley looks at 3,000 extra workers being employed to build Hinkley C ‘white elephant’ nuclear power station near Bridgwater, but still not building it on time. The new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station’s Unit 1 planned opening has been delayed by around six months and the cost of the project is expected to rise again, the energy firm behind the plant revealed. EDF said significant progress has been made on the site in Somerset but the start of electricity generation is now expected in June 2026, compared with previous estimates of an opening date at the end of 2025. The cost for the project is now estimated at between £22 billion and £23 billion, compared with projected costs of £21.5 billion and £22.5 billion announced in 2019. The coronavirus crisis led to a number of changes on the Hinkley site, including reducing the number of workers to enable social distancing, and concentrating on the most critical areas of construction.
