Every week (or, rather, most weeks, since the coronavirus torpedoed our schedule), we like to highlight three or four stories that go full-Guardian, but don’t require an entire article of refutation.
We encourage reader-participation here, so if you come across something you feel should be included in the next edition either post a link below, or send us an e-mail.
Not a headline, or even an article, but actually an entire section in the Guardian US which I never knew existed before this week, and that’s a shame because it is a headline goldmine.
Started in February this year, Feminist Economics is not afraid of asking the real tough questions, like Why isn’t capitalism working for American women? or Is it impossible to breastfeed and have a full-time job? or Am I plankton?
This week’s article is headlined The ‘shecession’: why economic crisis is affecting women more than men and is exactly as enjoyable a read as it sounds.
Technically, the journalism is very poor. For one thing, the entire article hinges on this claim:
From February to May, 11.5 million women lost their jobs compared with 9 million men
But they never provide a source for this statistic. Or explain why those numbers equal 20.5 million jobs, when official sources report over 40 million jobs have been lost.
So, the data is potentially seriously flawed. But so is the entire premise of the article.
I mean does “number of jobs lost = impact”? If women lose 55% of the jobs, and men 45%, does that mean women are being hit harder?
What about families and dependents? What if one of those women had three sons and a disabled husband who all depend on her income. Then that one job loss has affected 4 men, but only one woman.
Can you quantify suffering like that in a complex and multi-variant world? Of course not.
The article itself says “in the Great Recession, men lost twice as many jobs as women”, but does that mean men were twice as affected as women? No, that’s absurd.
So the data is flawed, and the premise ridiculous, but nevertheless they seem hellbent on making this an issue. Having established their (flawed) question – “Why are women being more affected by this situation?” – they don’t even seem to realise they already answered it, neatly and succinctly:
In this economic crisis, job losses have shot across industries where women, particularly Black and Latina women, held a disproportionate number of jobs, such as hospitality, leisure and education.
Well, that’s that then. No need for the other 2000 words at all. It’s got nothing to with racism, or sexism.
Anyway, that’s “feminist economics”. Don’t be surprised if this isn’t the last time it makes an appearance in TWitG.
Oh it’s also paid-for content funded by the Open Society Foundation, in case you wanted to know.
Labour Gets Big Money Backing
Last week (or maybe the week before, time does fly) we charted the reinvention of Sir Keir Starmer through hundreds of Guardian column inches. Your favourite Deep State-backed paper is getting right behind this particular sock puppet. And now others are too.
The Guardian reports that “Big Labour donors returning to party under Keir Starmer”. And they seem to be happy about it.
It’s an odd choice of headline because, while a few big-money donors are apparently returning, you’d think the bigger news is the working class people leaving:
Big private donations dried up almost completely under Jeremy Corbyn, although the party’s huge membership and union support put it in a strong financial position without the need for funding from wealthy backers. However, Unite, Labour’s biggest union backer and a major supporter of Corbyn’s leadership, has issued warnings over future funding.
But who cares, right? Good riddance to them I say. The last thing a political party needs is grass-roots support, and nothing spoils a working-class movement like unionising.
Don’t even bother reading the internal report claiming Labour insiders threw the 2017 election.
The corruption is as sickening as it is obvious. Labour, so long a lost cause, almost became something worthy under Corbyn, and now it’s being torn apart in front of our eyes.
We have the disgusting spectacle of a notionally “progressive” paper praising the knighted leader of a “working people’s party” for winning over the big-money donors who moved to Switzerland to avoid paying UK taxes.
This really is clown world.
Don’t Panic: The Covid Cat Made a Full Recovery
This is technically from last week, but we missed it and it’s too good to ignore. “Owners warned not to kiss pets after first cat infected with coronavirus in UK”, the headline tells us.
By “after”, they mean three months after, because the cat was sick back in May. Which means owners have been kissing their pets willy-nilly for weeks with no cat plague in sight. The author doesn’t seem up to this simple piece of logic.
There’s almost too much to break down here. As a piece of comedic writing it borders on genius. From needlessly supplying us the cat’s gender, place of birth and age, to the throwaway reference to the fact the cat is fine, and that they found out by accident because the Glasgow Centre of Virology Studies is apparently devoting its money and time to randomly testing cat blood samples.
The scientist is a nice find too. It’s not many professionals who would have balls enough to put forward the hypothesis that “fluffier” cats might be more likely to catch the virus, but Prof Margaret Hosie is such a person:
maybe fluffier [cats] would be more ready to catch any sneezes or cough droplets.
I don’t know if “fluffy” is a scientific term, or what – if any – studies have been done correlating the amount of fluffiness with immune system response. Prof Mosie is obviously unclear on that too, hastening to add:
You can’t draw any significance from that.
The cherry on top is this photo of a very unimpressed cat:
It’s captioned “The cat (not pictured) and its owners have made a full recovery.”
So not only is the cat fine, but that’s not even the right cat. It’s just some stock image of some other cat.
Actually, by making sure the stock image matches the breed of the cat in the story whichever unpaid intern was tasked with putting “cat” into a google image search has shown an unusual level of initiative. A likely candidate for promotion in the future.
If this cat getting mildly sick and then getting better again has worried you in any way, don’t worry, the Graun is on the case – they’ve got a whole new article about it published yesterday:
We found the first cat in the UK with Covid-19 – but there’s no need to panic!
BONUS…Something positive for once
TWiTG has never once agreed with anything in the Guardian…until now.
This article on the history of British made-for-TV movie The Woman in Black is absolutely on the money. It’s one of the best and scariest horror films ever made and deserves any and all praise.
I’m one of the few lucky enough to own it on DVD from its limited original release back in 2007, and it’s a life-ruiningly frightening watch.
Go find a copy and watch it now. (Or save it for Halloween as long as the world hasn’t ended by then).
* * *
All told, a busy week for The Guardian. And we didn’t even cover the specialist hugging instructions (wash your hands and “plan ahead”) or that NASA is “joining the social justice movement” by changing the name of the “Eskimo Nebula”.
Did we miss anything? Tell us about it in the comments below, and keep an eye out for articles that should go in the next issue.

Off Guardian is a Jewish mouth piece, stop believing the lies
This confirms the apparent events in the Labour Party this past few years. Holy crap, because I don’t regularly read it, I had no idea how bad The Guardian has become.
It’s one of the best and scariest horror films ever made
Nah. Thanks, but I’m too busy living the real life nightmare that is 2020.
As they say, historians will need an extra volume for 2010.
The G had once again dysfunctionality in the comment section of a topic that mattered. It never happens with trivial topics.
Since nobody is talking about it, maybe I need to, and here, too:
People sail around this topic, so I will express this as HYPOTHESIS: Robert Maxwell stole from people a gigantic sum of money. It went to a New York account, so Ghislaine could set up in the newspaper business in May 1991. In Nov.91 old Maxwell died and Ghislaine sorted through his papers on the yacht. Epstein’s name was in there. The Epstein brothers started to be wealthy not long after that, even though Maxwell’s loot may not have been their only source of wealth. Since some/much of the money came through Ghislaine they made sure she had access to it in the trust. Mark Epstein’s wealth has been described as ‘unexplained’ in businessinsider and WSJ.
Wtf? This is real?
For those who haven’t yet seen this film, sums everything up
Labour are not a working class movement they were created by the plutocracy and aristocracy when working men in the towns got the vote.
You have to have two parties or it would be a one-party-state. The two-party-state is sooooo much better than the one-party-state.
We are a one party state. The two party system is a charade. They both represent the same masters, as I say the labour movement was created to control the working man. It’s all there in writing to see…back when politicians spoke openly because plebs could not read…..
‘No doubt countries can be imagined in which the mass of the electors would be thoroughly competent to form good opinions; approximations to that state happily exist. But such was not the state of the minor English shopkeepers. They were just competent to make a selection between two sets of superior ideas; or rather — for the conceptions of such people are more personal than abstract — between two opposing parties, each professing a creed of such ideas. But they could do no more. Their own notions, if they had been cross-examined upon them, would have been found always most confused and often most foolish. They were competent to decide an issue selected by the higher classes, but they were incompetent to do more.’ Bagehot
I was pleasantly surprised by this
The editor immediately flagged it when he had to publish it. It was debunked within a week die to his efforts. He pointed a clear finger at big pharma.
The last thing a political party needs is grass-roots support, and nothing spoils a working-class movement like unionising.
As an animal loving nation and having a responsibility for the health and wellbeing of its people there can be only one logical response to this cat carona crisis.
It would be cruel to mandate masks for cats, and Govt officials are not monsters.
However there is a duty of care for the most vulnerable members of society and the elderly are disproportionately affected by this deadly pandemic.
Therefore it has been decided that all cats belonging or co residing with elderly person(s) should be culled.
The priority initially should be on cute fluffy affectionate cats as their behaviour encourages dangerous petting, lap sitting and contact.
Phase two will include short haired, bad tempered, individualistic or Feral cats with the aim of being able to declare this nation cat free by Dec31 2020.
We are aware that this could initially be a little upsetting for the lonely isolated and elderly who’s only company was their cat.
However the Govt will introduce a schene whereby a digital pet can be downloaded from ukgov.
These pets will be free for anyone on pension credit although Digi food ,and toys will cost extra
No not really, I made all this up it would be ridiculous and would never happen…….
Animal loving nation? The orwellian doublespeak is alive and well.
No animal or bird should have to go through such barbaric abuse and cruelty and no human should have to do such barbaric work as to work in a slaughter house.
“Or explain why those numbers equal 20.5 million jobs, when official sources report over 40 million jobs have been lost.”
Jeez. Don’t you know nuttin?
This piece is but a teaser for next weeks biggie.
“Insane Perverts who don’t know who they are Suffer Disproportionately From WUFlu Layoffs.
It’s only a matter of time before mandatory mask wearing will be required for all cats.
The first picture dont even look like a cat.Could be anything under that poor thing.The second one does and it looks like hes off for water but he cant drink it !I reckon he knows to dip his mask in his waterbowl then lick it from the inside.Clevercat him.Cleans it aswell.
At least those cats were spared from wearing goggles.
so far, Charlotte. anything’s possible in this mad world.
Now they’ve come for your pets. Animal cruelty so where are the vegans?
The vegans are busily assembling eco-friendly hazmat suits. 😁
They’re busy stockpiling several kilos of dried chickpeas, red kidney beans, tofu and a three year supply of Marmite…just in case…
Are the Keto crew behind the masks? Kind of since keto is a pharma ploy to make people sick.
Surely ugly cats at a minimum.
One reason some might find hazmat suits appealing…..
My cat Rudy would almost immediately remove it from his head. He won’t tolerate any sort of covering or restraint. When he was only a year old I tried to take him for a walk with a leash attached to a kind of harness. He resisted fiercely, twisted and turned, and
almost had it off, with part of the harness in his mouth, when I released him, concerned that he might strangle himself.
The globalists would characterize Rudy as a rebel…..😁
Bits pieces and absurdities this time Via ZH headline:
..Students Across US Stage “Die-Ins” [against COVID death] To Protest Return To Campus
I hope illusory COVID death listens to protesting youth and get out of long death queue at the position 100 to get a chance kill them, yielding the privilege to other jack-ass deaths including sorority alcohol poisoning deaths, swimming with friendly alligators, jumping from roof into swimming pool naked and missing only that much deaths, or overdose on coke or meth before exams deaths to name few deaths nobody among students is protesting.
Jesus ucking Christ what have liberals done to their children?
Even official stats are something like 0.001% of death from any corona virus for this age group, they’re probably at greater risk dying (pun intended) of Septicemia from the tattoos they cover their bodies with.
If i’m a hate criminal, its hatred of tattoos, why do people brand themselves? I’ve never understood why everyone gets the same themed tattoos to show their individuality.
Not to mention the permanence of a tattoo. Do such people lack the imagination or intelligence to realize that sometime in the future they might actually become bored or repelled by the tattoo?
Cultural programming? Acclimatizing people to digital tattoos?
A little unfair to bring up the subject of tax dodging by Labour’s returning ‘donors’. In the interests of balance you might have mentioned ‘Cash for Honours’, after which some of the ‘donations’ (loans) had to be returned.
I wonder if Keeves will be re-opening the marketplace, perhaps he will use Amazon?
My God, the poor cat. If dogs get SARS-COV-2 too to boot I’m in double trouble.
Here’s one for next week.
The Grindstone has it’s copy ready for a Lukashenko victory. It’s not about the Belarus electorate being pleased there is no lockdown. It’s about the result not going the right way for the G. The western media were making the election sound like it would be a close run thing. I blogged about it here.
I’ll tell you a funny thing, but the guys who are turning the guardian into a weird piece of shit are the same guys pushing US alt-right propaganda on this blog, they are the same backers. Nobody is on you side…..nobody. If they were you would never have heard of the.
OT: One day the story of Event Covid will be written, exposing the interplay of intelligence, psychologists, military projects to modify behaviour, blackmail and assassination, and the financing by elite foundations of medical and academic malpractice.
For now our best guide to the potential scope of this evil is history: specifically Project MKUltra (or MK-Ultra), also called the CIA mind control program.
Last year Tom O’Neill published his book, Chaos, that tries to describe the sheer scale of the project that has been mostly hidden from the public since its revelation in 1975 by the Church Committee. The book is named for the related Operation CHAOS.
The seeming lunacy of the CIA’s projects has been used to cloak the reality of decades of experimentation on humans. It was supposedly halted in 1973 but the continued coverup diminishes the credibility of claims that it was ever stopped. Elements of the project may simply have evolved into related and renamed experiments. After all, 9/11 and Event Covid are even more ambitious in scale.
O’Neill’s book grew out of a simple anniversary article on the Manson murders. It became Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties.
He did an interview in April with Joe Rogan, detailed but long. Short version here: https://youtu.be/kA6eBKvph_Y
I saw this interview and it refresing to see a real journalist and not a CIA operative, like the guy who recently gave an account on Joe Rogan on the same subject.
Poisoner in Chief by Stephen Kinzer. CIA Search for Mind Control is a worthwhile read.Also I remember those times quite well.Many of us saw right through the CIA`s game.
People need to withstand being spooked by the name Manson and open their minds to the mass manipulation of people through psychiatric experiments and drugs.
Witchery – a word Manson used – is so effective at stopping people looking further. It frightens you off.
“Thinking the unthinkable” is how they control you and why we don’t control them. That’s what got us here.
Criminologists like Manson’s parole office, Roger Smith, have PhDs in collective behaviour and violence, and how drugs influence gangs. He sent his research students to infiltrate gangs in the ghettos in Oakland in 1965 when the Panthers were forming.
Manson was part of this project. He recruited and lured young women and men using sex and drugs. The Family was then used to conduct experiments in safe houses in San Fransisco and elsewhere using LSD.
The FBI set up COINTELPRO to investigate free speech activists and suppress dissent, anti-war protestors, writers, artists, teachers and unionists (revealed through the theft of unredacted documents, see documentary “1971” below*)
… the CIA set Operation CHAOS to manipulate fake resistance organizations to incite violence and divide on a generational basis, while Project MKUltra ran the psychiatric experiments on unwilling human subjects and created the individuals who would spark the chaos.

Boris is a prophet now He predicted a second wave.Keir crying.Sorry just went on the Mail.
Redemption Song springs to mind.
A piece of the fear porn that the Guardian seems to have missed but one of its regional namesakes picked up on:
Well that was on the cards ever since I heard the one about how COVID can survive on metal for so many millennia. I’m surprised no-one came out with a list of materials you can’t touch. And while they’re at it, how about directions you shouldn’t walk in, fashions you shouldn’t wear, songs you shouldn’t sing etc.?
Word is they found a new strain of the virus in cats and this is just a smokescreen to make us smiling happy.Its called Curiosity19.Can we post pictures of our cats here yet ?
Pathetic and embarrassing as usual. I almost want the world to plunge into the dark ages just to see how fast these grauniad feminists latch onto the nearest bloke.
I quote you: “Technically, the journalism is very poor.” I applaud your restraint. Allow me – The Graun is a shitrag of the first order.
And I applaud YOUR restraint. The Graun is so fucking awful there are no words to describe it. All you can do is scream.
A couple of stories you won’t see reported in the Guardian or anywhere else in Western MSM are linked below – both are examples of the – “you can’t make this stuff up” – level of amoral oligarchic Western criminality.
There has never been a better time to be a member of our species. Yet, if one were to get one’s knowledge of the world from the corporate media, one would “know” that everything is terrible and getting worse. Why would any sane person wish to propagate this grotesque falsehood?
True. Reminds me of HL Mencken’s quote (I paraphrase): the media portrays all sorts of hovgoblins, all imaginary, in order for us to be saved by the government from these hobgoblins.

CMS chairperson Professor Lungile Pepeta dies of Covid-19 – News24
Nelson Mandela University’s health sciences executive dean and chairperson of the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS), Professor Lungile Pepeta had been at the helm of the CMS since June 2020 following the death of former chairperson Dr Clarence Mini who also succumbed to the virus.
Professor Lungile Pepeta died of Covid-19 on Friday, reportedly after being placed on a ventilator.
Who wants to be chairperson next?
** The Council for Medical Schemes is a statutory body established by the Medical Schemes Act (131 of 1998) to provide regulatory supervision of private health financing through medical schemes. https://www.medicalschemes.com/
“The medical regulator CMS says discontinuing the Low-Cost Benefit Option (LCBO) — and introducing National Health Insurance (NHI) — is intended to increase the affordability of medical schemes.
It says health care delivered within a universal access national system will provide greater health, wealth and social well-being than when fragmented aspects of health care are provided in a highly commercialised environment.”
Council for Medical Schemes: Why we are stopping low-cost benefit options — https://www.news24.com/fin24/opinion/council-for-medical-schemes-why-we-are-stopping-low-cost-benefit-options-20200126
Council for Medical Schemes banning of low cost benefit options — https://www.financialinstitutionslegalsnapshot.com/2020/03/council-for-medical-schemes-banning-of-low-cost-benefit-options/
The South African government’s Council for Medical Services wants to introduce National Health Insurance. Poor people cannot afford even the cheapest private insurance – known as the Low-Cost Benefit Option, which covers less than 16% of the population. The CMS proposes to ban the sale of medical insurance to the low-income segment.
Private health insurers don’t like the NHI plan, not surprisingly and insist private medical insurance for the masses should be given more time to grow.
Two successive chairpersons of the CMS get COVID and die.
Just read your 3 comments to my husband. He immediately suggested the next chairperson of the CMS should be that well-known doctor Bill Gates.
Ye Daily Fayke: Lockdown ‘killed two people for every three that died of coronavirus’.
Readers overwhelmingly reject the Daily Mail narrative. Comments like:
“And if you consider those who “died of covid” mostly did not actually die of covid but were actually very old or sick people – then MORE people died from not getting the treatment they needed than of covid. I wonder how the quack Fergusson sleeps at night knowing it was his advice that cost so many lives and crippled the economy. Surely he has to be held to account?” ↑ 1050 ↓ 20
“Plandemic” ↑ 630 ↓ 20
Since the tests are faulty and death statistics and death certificates are being massively fiddled with, we don’t know how many have died *of* Covid or *with* Covid. Matt Hancock’s urgent review into the manipulation and distortion of Covid death figures has never happened.
A real pandemic would not need such skulduggery.
Or maybe it did but, like the Pritti Patel bullying review, it has disappeared into a black hole because the conclusion didn’t sit well with what we were told to believe.
Incidentally, not everyone may be aware of this: the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK decreed two or three months ago that, because of the pressures placed on government during the ‘pandemic’, Freedom of Information requests could legitimately be regarded as ‘low priority’ i.e. could be ignored. A multitude of sins are no doubt being hidden from us under the excuse of coronavirus.
True that ! My Scottish granny survived the Spanish flu after WW1 when she lived in Glasgow . She recalled even in her 90s , the bodies of her neighborhood friends being put out on the sidewalk some mornings to be picked up by a man with a wagon drawn by a horse .
During the 1918 pandemic, my grandfather’s job was to retrieve the dead bodies from their homes in Chester, PA and pile them up on the street for pick up. The bodies were very visible and piled up outside for anyone to see.
He never got the flu nor did anyone in his large family who lived in fairly tight quarters. I thought that was odd considering he handled so many bodies and entered so many homes that must’ve been full of this flu
The Fail have been slipping in stories over the last couple of days pretty much confirming that the general narrative was false. First was a story on the exaggerated figures, then that lockdown has killed almost as many people as cv and there were more last week.
I found the comments heartening although I think the DM highly moderate as I can rarely get a comment on there but yes the tide appears to have turned on what people are prepared to accept now as the narrative.
The longer this goes on the more people can see through the veil. If they try a Victoria style lockdown if the figures ‘jump’ it might prove a push to far. We can but hope…
Seems like they’re going to try now with the Boris ‘predicted second wave’ headlines starting to propagate. Always the result of people either being on the beach or meeting at the pub.
When BLM were running riot ne’er a word though about second waves. Funny that…
Under the EU plan, the nations within it had their economy altered such that they were inter-dependent instead of independent. So, Britain’s farming had to go. Farmers were paid to leave their fields idle and Fergusson was wheeled out to produce invented figures for mad cow disease that resulted in the extermination of the countries’ herds and the death by suicide of unknown numbers of farmers, (plus untold stress among the general population for many years). Yes, the man needs to be held accountable and the people that used his fraud.
Don’t forget foot and mouth disease in 2001 that Ferguson also invented figures for, resulting in the unnecessary slaughter of millions of animals, the break up of family farms and the suicide of farmers. (Plus 2005 bird flu and 2009 swine flu that he invented figures for, completely exaggerating the possible deaths.)
Also missed this doozy from the Obsessive today:
‘ Their statement comes after comparisons were made last month between the Holocaust and atrocities against the Uighurs in a letter from the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Marie van der Zyl, to the Chinese ambassador in Britain.’
‘ The statement, signed by five serving Church of England bishops, the Coptic archbishop of London, the Dalai Lama’s representative in Europe, plus cardinals, imams and rabbis, says the plight of the Uighurs “calls into question most seriously the willingness of the international community to defend universal human rights for everyone”.’
And the new ‘Color’ crap in Beloruss, Beirut and … Siberia!
It seems that the Groan is getting shriller by the day as the Empires DS mouthpieces are throwing anything and everything at the Russians and Chinese failure to lay down and roll over for the ancient City’s millennia long plans.
This is a bombshell!
The walls are closing in on (Putin/ Xi/ “The Mullahs”/ Assad/ Maduro.*)
Liberal, middle class, academic feminists who moan about the fewer numbers of women CEOs that exist in the world. CEOs who profit from exploiting their male and female staff.
Also missed again:
Revolutionary Communist Party establishment fascist front and rabid BrexShit head honcho Clare Fox to the Lords for the great works for the status quo fascist Anglo Imperialism – along with the Off-G alma mater and template SPIKED!
The fake revolutionary agit-prop groups that are just mere fronts and shadows of the spooks and MSM. Just as much as the fake fact checkers.
Drive by down voters? No actual retort?
Oh pay no attention DunG. They’re just messing with you. As indeed am I. We love you really!
I hope the “Woman in Black” you are referring to was scarier than that Radcliffe version, the scariest aspect of which was the utter cruelty and malevolence of that Dickensian world. Admittedly that is terrifying but it wasn’t the point of the film – or so I assume.
You stole my thunder! I was set to point out the bought and paid crud courtesy of Open Society, aka Mr Soros… and then you mentioned it. Sigh.
Oh, yeah, I did want to mention The Cat.
I mean if a pawpaw and a goat can get Coronavirus, then surely to goodness, cats, and by sheer obvious logic, dogs can get Coronavirus as well.
I hope all you cat and dog owners out there are paying close attention to this.
They kill trees to print this stuff? Does anyone even read this gunk anymore? Apart from the woke virtue signalling hipster set sipping their fair trade hand picked biodynamic hand washed coffee. Decaff.
As for the article on NASA…. ‘certain cosmic nicknames can not only be insensitive but actively harmful’.
Is this a pisstake? Is this some grotesque parody or something? Social justice in outer space??🤣🤣🤣🤣
The dog it was that died….
What surprise that it had a cutsie name like “Buddy” and the breed (German shepherd) is not exactly one without esoteric connotations.
There was a whole article in Rupert’s Nstional Geographic about a dog who’d got this shitvirus and died. Never mind that it had some kind of cancer already. This is laughably lunatic. When the time comes we’ll be forced to behead a lot of people.
You again missed:
To go with the Russians (Putin) supported BrexShit LIE – as shown by the intelligence report; we now have that Russia (Putin) ‘hacked’ Liam Fox’s PRIVATE email to leak the negotiations to sell the NHS and everything else to the Yanks- to STOP BrexShit LIE.
No names sources or investigation. Nothing about the US billionaires interference in BrexShit referendum or the general election.
They were NOT hacked. They were revealed in the Torygraph TWO DAYS BEFORE.

Do you mean Woman in Black from 1989? Which was then released on dvd in 2007?
Because there is another version with Daniel Radcliffe in 2012?
By the way, thank you for the Cat story.
Nice to start the day with a good laugh. Thinking about the intern brought to mind “W1A”. It’s a classic Will move.
I find the Guardian’s obsession with race to be a wee bit…umm…racist.
“Feminist economics”, eh? Well if the Graud keeps on it’s current path of desperately distracting irrelevant bollocks, it will soon feature an impassioned article on all the unknown gerbils who died in WW2.
When are we going to get Trannie Economics?
That’s what I want to know.
That’s a thought which I’m sure is on all our minds. Get set for the Spielberg movie version!
Cat Lives Matter!
I am trying to figure out why the sudden obsession with pets? all these stories about dying because of kissing or petting your dog/cat appeared about the same time. Including this ridiculous display by supposedly health experts:
That’s an appalling photo! Blatant animal cruelty. The poor dogs can’t even remove their masks if they wanted to.
Humans disgust me.
Not all humans, bro. They want you to think exactly like that. They want you to believe humans are a curse on this planet and should be eradicated. Falls well in with what they hope to achieve.
“Not all humans, bro.”
It might be a woman, Reg.
“Estragon: People are bloody ignorant apes.”

How much of the psyop operates the cultivation and activation or triggering of human self-hatred?
How much of the human ‘covid pharm’ is a return with interest for our own measure of enslaving nature?
Disgust is part of the spectrum of human experience.
It is part of your humanity.
Compassion for our felt experience is also allowing a deeper uncovering of what gives rise to our sense of being defined by it.
Begs the question, is Billy Eugenics hoping to cash in on “the Doggy Market” for his Euthanasia Death Shots? ALL “THE DOGGY HITLERS” out there must be doing black flips.
Well, I guess now that that notorious anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn is out of the picture, all the ‘Big Jews’ will be coming back to Labour now.
Those shekels will be rolling in.
The Tories and Labour will eventually merge into one great big corporate funded mess. It gets more obvious every year that our democracy is anything but. IMO, there should never be private money anywhere near elections for a head of gov’t. All parties should be allocated a certain amount of public funds with which to run their campaigns.
The present system is costing the British public much more in the long run and slowly ruining the country by allowing successive stooges from the insane corporate clown network to get their sticky fingers on the levers of power.
The day will come when the British people will dispense with this present pretense of democracy altogether. British political parties are now dead from the neck up. There has to be something better than this tired old system that has passed its use by date. The nepotistic maniacs who still run this scam are still using war to solve and hide their mismanagement, constant incompetence and runaway greed.
That describes the US political system quite well, too. 🙁
Mind if I repost that at The Guardian?
Ha, ha! You’re a funny one.
‘From February to May, 11.5 million women lost their jobs compared with 9 million men.’
Reminds me of a story on the pursuit of equality by DS Landes (quoted by Ha-Joon Chang) and it goes like this:
‘The peasant Ivan is jealous of his neighbor Boris, because Boris has a goat. A fairy comes along and offers Ivan a single wish. What does he wish for? That Boris’ goat should drop dead’
This gender ‘problem’ on inequality that the guardian writes about is similar to Boris problem (and solution) to inequality. That is: If only there were 11.5 million men who lost their job, than we would have a much more fair system!
In the meantime a couple of billionaires made another couple of billions. But who cares about them? Certainly not the Guardian who is doing its utmost best to create division between the sexes, while the billionaires continue to have (almost) all the money and power in the world.
Or as George Carlin said: They own you!
Yes, it is a scientific term. In fact, it’s a breed of cat: catus fluffiensis. 😀
would that be the same as ‘felineritis’?
Very amusing sum up. I wonder if some Guardian journalists check in here to read it.
Interesting on Unite. Despite their support for Corbyn, as a former rep I was not that impressed with them. They seldom took a stand on anything. They often censored my newsletter.
Amusing story was the time their legal department declined to represent a member who claimed him being asked to move roles amounted to a redundancy situation. Apparently the case didnt have a reasonable prospect of success.
So the member did it himself, won hands down – the tribunal judge slated our company. As a result us in the same position all got offered voluntary redundancy which we accepted. No thanks to Unite.
If they have any guts and principles they should de-fund the Labour Party as not fit for purpose.
‘coronavirus torpedoed our schedule’ What a clever little virus it is, to do that all by itself!
I love the Schrodinger’s cat walked into a guardian article.. and then it didn’t! Take on this fluffy kitten click bait piece in the Graun.
As for the NASA article about insensitive un-woke and politically incorrect scientist from history who failed to predict the future shock of woke politics.. priceless!
May I suggest a few additions:
Well we will need to rename Black Holes for a start, as they are a totally derogatory term, and rename them more accurately as things that Astrophysicist can’t see and most probably don’t exist.
Also the Moon will need to be renamed as something less connected to, well arse. As this is the most blatant example of white supremacy as anyone will know who remembers the pre-covid traditional football convoys that used to travel along Brexitannia’s once gridlocked highways.
And finally “Keeves” as Boris Johnson’s faithful assistant. “Mush” adored by the Graun, but some people even on the rags payroll, see through their lies…
Holes of Colour?
I’m not performing what would probably be an easy search for confirmation, i.e. links, but many years ago I read an article or articles on the question of whether black holes emitted radiation– I remember that Stephen Hawking was deeply involved in this controversy. I was surprised, though not offended or scandalized, to find the question whimsically posed as “Do black holes have hair?”
Again, I wasn’t shocked personally– but I was surprised that the scientists involved cheerfully employed this double-entendre without worrying about decorum. I assume that they were all males, though.
Maybe nasa should stop calling them holes when they have plenty of images of these ‘holes’ ejecting material from both ends at once.
Black Holes – Matter?
Not enough that the Labour party has been politically neutered and is now the second right-wing party in Parliament, along with the Tories, it is now being effectively bankrupted. Yes, the great ‘anti-semitism’ brouhaha has been a nice little earner for the various fink entrists which have now come into prominence. Described as being a ‘Broad Church’ the Party have always left the door open for those whose object is to either milk it or smash it.
The Guardian US is so obviously doing their bit to push division and hatred. The corrupt political hacks are trying their best to pit social groups against each other. The propaganda stench rising from the article is also very obvious because as with most propaganda, the facts ain’t there to back it up. Still it’s lies and deceit that fuel those who earn their crust by deceiving the public and misappropriating public funds.
The Labour party has a fifth column in their midst and they are all supporters of that Tory leader who ran the party whilst lying to his party, the people, and parliament, so he could make 100 million, get his own bank to oversee the Carbon Credit extortion, and continue the work began by Thatcher of selling the British public down the corporate river.
It’s spooks, business shysters and lawyers who determine who gets to be PM. Peter Wright pointed that out way back when Wilson was ousted by the original Russiagate propaganda run by shyster media.
The Fluffy cat story has a transcription error. Is it Prof Hosie or Prof Mosie? Maybe it doesn’t matter because the Guardian probably invented the Prof too.
Perhaps one basic remedy for fluffy cats, which i am surprised the Prof didn’t recommend to The Guardian moron readers, would be to simply shave the cat.
Your welcome ‘Prof’.
The graun caters specifically to the clueless, particularly older middle classes and young know-nothings who think their opinion matters.
Civic minded cats would wear masks of course…
there is a deluxe version of the cat mask – it has whiskers sprouting from both sides.
I am pretty confident that Titania McGrath is secretly the editor of the Guardian.
Do you think the cat in the picture is now at risk of being unfairly shunned or persecuted because of mistaken identity? Well it happens to actors who play the part of villains on BBC’s Crimewatch. I’m being facetious of course but I do like the idea that Guardian readers might not know what a cat looks like! I have seen recent Daily Mail articles which mention ‘vaccine’ and they always include a stock image of a laboratory bench with a couple of test tubes. As for the possibility that fluffier cats may be more likely to “catch sneezes or cough droplets”, surely that suggestion must now lead to a prohibition of beards and moustaches? I may think I am kidding, you may think I am kidding but nothing is beyond the realms of possibility, especially as they can impede how well the useless masks fit.
The OffG article also mentions that the cat was found to be ‘infected” three months ago and guidance to avoid kissing pets has only just been issued. This is similar to the face mask saga. No edict to wear face masks in shops when the ‘pandemic’ was at its ‘peak’ but as soon as supposed Covid19 deaths are down to virtually zero everything changes: “Quick, emergency risk alert, everyone must wear a mask in the shops and still social distance”. How can so few ‘journalists’ in the MSM question the logic of this? But they don’t. Of course they would argue that it is to avoid a ‘second wave’. So now we are taking preventative measures in anticipation that something might happen. Problem is, it is difficult to argue with that logic if we really do want to live constantly fearful lives, which it appears most people do. No one should go on plane journeys as the plane might crash, no one should go out in the rain in case they get struck by lightning. In fact why go outside, we might get run over.
Gates, Pharma have their eyes on cats and dogs. It’s a lucrative prospect. Fools will vaccinate their pets against coronavirus.
It’s already really lucrative as there is so much pressure from vets and other dog owners to vaccinate your dog, and there’s all the virtue signalling stuff going on ‘I’m a responsible dog owner unlike you who don’t vaccinate your dog, in fact I have to vaccinate my dog because you don’t as your dog is spreading disease so I am a caring responsible dog owner and you are a cheapskate who is being cruel to risk the life of your dog..Dog vaccinations should be mandatory…’
There are thousands of pet owners whose cats/dogs have died or suffered serious side effects due to yearly (unnecessary) vaccinations.
And a ‘coronavirus’ vaccine probably will become mandatory for domestic pets as for humans, as you say, it’s all money for big pharma.
“that suggestion must now lead to a prohibition of beards and moustaches”.
They’re such a handy way of obscuring fake identities that there’s very little chance of that – although you’re absolutely right that by their own logic it is something they should be advocating.
To disclose a bias, I’m 65 and have had a beard for about 50 years now; unlike some men, I’ve never felt the urge to periodically shave it off or experiment with lesser facial hair. The full beard abides.
Also, to add a cavil, I’ve always been put off by the idiomatic phrase “wear a beard”– even “grow a beard” annoys me. For the first few years, I used to reply to disapproving oldsters asking, “Why did you grow that beard?” by politely explaining that actually, the beard grew itself; I merely stopped constantly shaving to keep it from growing. And I don’t consider myself “wearing” a beard any more than I “wear” the hair sprouting in the usual places elsewhere on my body.
That digression made: since shortly after the Megadeath Virus of Doom scamdemic was launched, our local newspaper, which I glance at in its online incarnation (Inquirer.com), has featured inane, infantilizing, tendentious articles promoting the scamdemic under the auspices of “Helping You Through the Coronavirus Pandemic”. They offer “expert” answers to burning questions like, “Do I need to immediately remove and launder my clothes every time I return home from necessary trips outdoors?”
Likewise, there were several anxious articles responding to “Do I need to shave off my beard/facial hair?” The anxiety arose from two concerns: that beards, mustaches, and even long or bushy sideburns would impede the effectiveness of masks, and/or the facial hair would function as a virus-catching sponge.
I would feel sooo much safer if there were government issued Stop! Don’t kiss that cat! billboards every few meters. The risks might be low but with that second wave a-coming every pathetic little helps. But will Keith Starmer stand up and be counted? I guess rooting out antisemitism plain tuckers you out
You raise many interesting points.
But, speaking of face masks, I am so outraged that I couldn’t fully process your comment. I’m still seething with righteous indignation because the cat in the photo isn’t wearing a mask!
BTW– yes, I have seen those sad and creepy photos of masked cats and other pets, so I politely request readers not to share more of them in response to this. 🙁
Its inevitable that women are more affected by government response to wuh-flu, but i bet not as much as black transgender gay women.
Staying with the identity politics theme, we were thankfully saved from the horror of a Corbyn (i cant bring myself to use the term lead) labour government, not because of his reasonable economic policies, not because of his ludicrous “antisemitism” or his foreign policy, or even his appeasement & hypocrisy over brexit or even attempting to make Watson a lord! No because of the kick in balls he gave the working class for identity politics activists, can you imagine what might have happened?
I’ve heard on good authority felines are prone to many corona viruses but as they haven’t even developed a test that works on humans but incidentally has found a fruit cv19 positive then i’m sceptical the cat had wuh-flu. What ever happened to the infected tiger?
I’ve yet to ever see a horror film that has ever frightened me, they usually just make me yawn. Though movies in the woke era do terrify me for future generations. Movies now are shite.
Try “The Ring” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298130/
The Birds, I watched it when I was 10 and birds terrified me for years.
You should watch The Birds as an adult, it’s definitely a comedy;)
