  1. It's quite laughable really. "You can trust us because we say so. Everybody else is lying." The "relevant sources" are usually just from other mainstream 'narrative enforcers'. And if the public try to 'fact check for themselves', of course Google and Wikipedia will also present the same 'relevant sources', while hiding any 'contrary' opinion. If there is one thing I have learned in the last few years it is that most things are 'inverted' (ie "diversity" is all about imposing a 'singularity', or 'hive mind', where everyone thinks/acts the same), but in some cases, like where the BBC has positions like "disinformation editor" or "specialist disinformation reporter", the truth is plainly obvious and staring you in the face. Yes, there is a lot of 'disinformation' and 'misinformation' out there, but the mainstream media narrative enforcers are just as guilty. I'm intelligent enough to use my own discernment and critical thinking ability in order to think for myself, thank you very much.
  2. She's served her purpose, and now it is time to stand aside, and make people 'think' there will be a 'change', when in fact nothing will change and they'll end up with something/someone far worse. Maybe she fancies having a crack at becoming an MP, and perhaps sees herself becoming deputy Prime Minister in a possible coalition deal with Labour. She's done enough damage as First Minister at the Scottish Parliament, who knows what havoc she could cause at Westminster!
  3. She liked to take lots of photos of herself, it seems. As well as photos of her with her dog, while walking along the river. Like there is something that is being 'reinforced'. Not seen many pictures of her with her husband and children.
  4. I would agree with what Anti says when it comes to town centre High Streets, Blur once sang in their song "Bank Holiday" (from the 1994 album Parklife) that "all the high streets look the same", and it is pretty true. Round me in Birmingham, I can go to Northfield, Acocks Green, Kings Heath, Shirley, Selly Oak etc, and its all takeaways, barber shops, charity shops and convenience stores. Where I live, there isn't a 'high street' as much, but there are a couple of places where you have a small run of shops, all local independent businesses, and generally I can get most of what I need (groceries and household goods) from them. Plus as a bonus, working in online retail means I can get some other stuff through work. I'm happy to travel further afield to go and pick up stuff that I can't get locally, but as I don't drive, any large or heavy stuff I have to resort to buying online for home delivery. But I don't buy from Amazon (apart from Kindle books) and if I do buy online, I buy direct from sellers' own websites, rather than through eBay.
  5. People: "nah, 15 minute cities is just a silly conspiracy theory"
  6. I'm pretty sure at some point that Richard D Hall's name is going to get dragged through the dirt again, and if that's the case then I don't blame him for keeping a 'low profile' on this case so far. "How dare these people NOT accept the media narrative at face value and how dare they go around asking questions and doing their own investigations" On the other hand, all these 'amateur' Youtubers/Tiktokers could well be making things worse deliberately via their actions.
  7. If this is still all over 'local' news sites that aren't in Lancashire, then its definitely a distracting psy-op. As well as the mainstream media, there now seems to be hours and hours of videos from Youtubers and Tiktokers all offering analysis and commentary on this story - don't take your eye off the ball and let yourselves get distracted by all this, even the 'alternative' is just as bad as the mainstream. Start looking at the news stories that AREN'T getting that much attention (if you can find any). "Energy flows where attention goes" and all that.
  8. "Pause" and "paused" seem to be the latest 'buzzwords' in vogue, usually in relation to suspending or postponing things, or even abandoning them altogether...


    I first noticed this when 'big brands' started announcing about 'pausing operations in Russia/Ukraine', but it is becoming more commonplace now.

      soft language....if they call it quiting that might trigger some critical thinking 

  9. Eh? All major road building projects in Wales are scrapped From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-64640215 With such 'strict criteria', there will be no new roads built in Wales then. And less likely that any current ones will see any 'improvements' in order to alleviate congestion and help with traffic flows.
  10. Seem to be a lot of 'strange deaths' which the police keep saying are not 'suspicious'. A few months ago, the body of a woman was found in the pool at my local park, yet the police said there was nothing 'suspicious'. There was also a story about a dead man being found in a canal somewhere, but the police didn't think it was suspicious. Now back to your story, "early hours" is a bit of a 'vague' time definition, could be any time from 1am to 6am? Who's out in their garden at that time of the morning? And what injuries did she sustain and from how? While there are unanswered questions such as these, I would say any death should be treated as suspicious.
  11. On a side-related note, I found this story quite interesting... Mystery of Tamworth dog walker missing for almost two years as cops make fresh appeal From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/black-country/mystery-tamworth-dog-lover-missing-26220455 Yeah, because people who go for a walk with their dog just 'mysteriously' vanish without trace, just like Ms Bulley did? Is this an attempt at 'normalisation'? While I do follow the local media here, I must admit that this is the first I have heard of this particular case.
  12. I would like to think that at some point he will have a few thoughts on this case, though he will need to be 'careful', perhaps he is being 'goaded' to break cover? That has pretty much convinced me that this is indeed a massive psy-op, and this poll is merely to determine how many people are so easily absorbed by or distracted by the 'latest thing' in the media. Consider this possibility: this Nicola Bulley doesn't exist, she never went missing, this story is a complete fabrication, her 'husband' and 'friends' are just actors, and this is all a media 'charade' to test how people will believe what the media tell them to believe, because only 'they' are the arbiters of truth. It's a fictional soap opera script being played out via the mainstream media.
  13. This is what happens though when both the police, and the local media who just regurgitate their 'tweets', leave people hanging and just provide titbits of information. How often do you see some local news article where it merely states something along the lines of "police have closed off a busy city centre street while they attend to an 'incident'"? It's all deliberate, the intention is to get people 'speculating', which is all they can do in the absence of actual facts and information.
  14. It is a good question and one of the first that I asked. From: https://www.richplanet.net/20230127.php Now I appreciate that joining a Teams call from a mobile phone might have meant that she joined 'audio only', and may have had her phone mic turned off - so she was simply listening in - but still it is an important detail that is mostly being overlooked. She apparently worked as a 'mortgage advisor'? Did she regularly 'work from home'? If so, did she regularly join Teams calls from her mobile phone? What was the purpose of this Teams call? (Daily 'briefing' or whatever?) Who else participated in these calls? Should she have been at home 'working' instead of taking her dog for a walk? Did she make any excuse during this call as to why she may 'step away' for a moment?
  15. The 'current thing' with buses is not quite the same, but is possibly related. Bus operators participating in this scheme will ultimately lose money, but it will be - yes you guessed it - us taxpayers at large who end up footing the bill for this mass subsidisation of bus services. Here in the West Midlands, the max single fare is £2.40, but then again if people are making a journey TO somewhere, then they will usually need to travel back, in which case most people are already buying day tickets at either £4.00 or £4.20, which then allows them to make multiple journeys by bus in a single day. I imagine people who infrequently travel by bus in other areas of the country where fares may be higher have seen some benefit as a result of this scheme, however unless there has been significant increases in patronage, then the bus operators themselves will likely see no benefit. What then happens when fares go back up again after March? As I see things, as a bus user myself, during the 'pandemic' the Government and local authorities did what they could to dissuade people from using public transport because "it wasn't safe" and they might catch some pesky virus and die as a result. It is not enough to keep throwing public money at bus operators to support commercial bus services, and I don't think 'franchising' is the answer or solution here either.
  16. I agree, this all smacks of a media psy-op to me the way this is panning out. In fact, it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Madeleine McCann case. A two-hour TV interview? While out for a walk around Sheldon Country Park in Birmingham this afternoon, I passed by a young family, and one of their children asked their parents "have they found Nicola Bulley yet?" It seems this is all designed to have a mass psychological effect on the wider population, the purpose of which is yet to be revealed, but there will be one somewhere. I'm also concerned by the number of TikTok'ers and YouTubers making 'commentary' videos on this, as it would also appear that some people are exploiting this to raise their own profiles, as well as harvesting 'likes' and attention/comments. Social engineering, or a massive distraction, who really knows...
  17. Microsoft Teams is basically the same thing as Skype, which is also owned by Microsoft. It also allows group conferencing video/audio calls/meetings same as Zoom.
  18. Sorry, but you lost me after "Baxter Dimitry"... It has been pointed out on numerous occasions in this forum that 'NewsPunch' is an untrustworthy 'fake news' website. There may well be a small element of 'truth' hidden away in this article, but it is mostly obscured by nonsensical bullshit - the kind that is quickly 'shared' and seeded into the 'truth community' with the ultimate aim of making us all look stupid and ill-informed.
  19. Wow, that's gratitude for you... Robert Goodwin guilty of Shane Thompson murder From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-64582827 I once offered a job to a friend of mine at a company I was working for, we went to the pub and he bought me a couple of beers to say "thanks". How times have changed!
  20. This 'Teams call' she was on probably holds answers, yet it is being mostly overlooked as part of this investigation. There must be a recording or transcript somewhere, or other participants in the call must have noticed something 'odd' from the time. She joined a Teams call from her mobile while out walking her dog, then somehow puts the phone down on a bench, and then mysteriously vanishes. -"Excuse me for a second guys, I'm just going to have a splash in the river..." Someone who seemed to be fond of taking 'selfies' is surely too narcissistic to leave their phone unattended?
  21. If it means that single fares can be reduced to a more reasonable price, then it should work out fine. When a single journey costs £140, while a return costs £150, somebody somewhere is getting seriously fleeced. A few years ago, I used to once or twice a year travel down to London, and it was cheaper to buy two singles at £6, than it was to buy a return at £32
  22. My eyebrows got raised when the police came up with their 'hypothesis' that she had fell in the river, because it seemed at that point they were trying to 'close down' or swiftly conclude the investigation. I very much hope that Richard D Hall will pick up on this one and start some proper investigating, as so many things just don't 'add up'. For starters, why would she log into a Teams work call on her mobile phone, then just leave it on the bench while still logged in? Who were the other participants in this work call, and did they notice anything 'off'? Did she say anything before she put her phone down on the bench? Who does she work for and what was the purpose of her being on this call? (If she was working from home, why not join from her home computer?) With no evidence that anyone had slipped and fallen into the river, and no body or items of clothing found in the water, why were the police so quick to 'assume' she had fallen in the river and 'did not leave the area'? I get the feeling that something is being covered up, but at this stage, I have no idea why.
  23. It is important to understand that there isn't actually any shortage of food - any such 'shortages' being reported by the mainstream media are merely to fuel 'perception' of such in order to push certain narratives and agendas. People in African countries have been 'starving' for years - yes, I remember very well the Live Aid and Band Aid appeals, and it looks like the millions of pounds raised have done nothing. Because it was never meant to. Farmlands in Africa (and elsewhere) have been bought by multi-national corporations - or locked into 'exclusive' supply deals - so much of the crops and produce grown/harvested there end up being exported to production facilities in order to 'supply' Western countries. The multi-nationals make huge profits from starving the natives, then the ordinary public are expected to 'donate' what little disposable income they have to 'big charities' in order to 'help the starving millions'. As I have repeated stated here in this forum, the UK missed a huge opportunity following Brexit, to get our own farmers growing produce and harvesting crops again, in order to meet our own populace's needs. Instead, they prefer to pay our farmers to install solar panels and wind turbines, or let the land 'go wild', and thus maintain this dependence on imported produce. Rising energy and fuel prices mean the cost of transporting such produce across the world has increased, yeah they'll blame the 'Russian invasion of Ukraine' for that, but it is governments' sanctions policies that have caused this, and deliberately. Millions of poultry and waterfowl have been slaughtered because of 'bird flu' concerns, and cattle and sheep are being blamed for causing global warming because of their farts. Reduce the meat supply, and people will be forced to consume insect-based substitutes, or 'lab-grown'/plant-based alternatives.
  24. Back to the police for a moment, and people wonder why they are getting a 'bad rep' at the moment... Remember the 1984 movie "Police Academy"? Hundreds have joined police who should not have been allowed – inspector From: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/uk-news/2023/02/05/hundreds-have-joined-police-who-should-not-have-been-allowed--inspector/ Police recruitment used to be all about getting the 'best people for the job', but it would seem that we are now facing the consequence of lowering the bar so much in order to meet 'diversity quotas'.
  25. Remember when 'Police Academy' was a fictional comedy movie? Hundreds have joined police who should not have been allowed – inspector From: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/uk-news/2023/02/05/hundreds-have-joined-police-who-should-not-have-been-allowed--inspector/ Well I hate to be the one who says "I told you so" but this is exactly what happens when you 'lower the bar', and actively recruit people based on their gender or colour of their skin, rather than whether they are actually the best person for the job. For those who've never seen it, "Police Academy" (1984) tells the story of what happens when a Mayor in a crime-ridden city orders standards to be lowered in order to recruit more police officers, and the plot follows a group of 'misfits' and their progression through training at the Police Academy. Fortunately being a 'feel-good' comedy, it works out in the end and the raw recruits come to the rescue when the city is beseiged by rioters.
