I think she uses the phrase paedo protectors. I’m not sure who she’s talking about - Harwood, Farage, or GB News. Isn’t that supposed to be their viewer base?

She probably thought it was C4 news or something. Looks like she's been inhaling paraffin all day

Arlene Foster joining apparently. Interesting one that as, despite it being called GB News, most of the gammon brigade are English I suspect and I'd imagine many of their views towards NI would be.... questionable.

The times come, its going down the shitter, get the experts on.

 

No problems with the mans competence, he'll be the most level headed person on there. Not sure on his skin colour though, might have to whiten his face, like a reverse black and white minstrel, they're an easily confused audience anyway...

They've turned on the RNLI, a volunteer organisation that has saved thousands of lives at sea since the 1800's

RNLI hits out at ‘migrant taxi service’ accusations

 

Lifeboat charity says it is its moral and legal duty to rescue people at risk of dying as they cross Channel

‘Our role is ... simply to respond to a need to save lives,’ says Mark Dowie, the RNLI’s chief executive. Photograph:

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has hit out at accusations it is operating a “migrant taxi service” by rescuing people at risk of dying in the water as they cross the Channel in small boats, which the charity says is its moral and legal duty.

Responding to accusations from Nigel Farage that it is facilitating illegal immigration, the volunteer lifeboat charity said it was “very proud” of its humanitarian work and it would continue to respond to coastguard callouts to rescue at-risk Channel migrants in line with its legal duty under international maritime law.

“Imagine being out of sight of land, running out of fuel, coming across incredibly busy shipping lanes when you’re frightened and you don’t know which direction you’re going in. That is by anyone’s standards distress. Our role in this is incredible important: simply to respond to a need to save lives,” said Mark Dowie, the chief executive of the RNLI.

Dowie’s comments came as the government prepared to enact its controversial borders and nationality bill, which aims to reduce the numbers of crossings by criminalising migrants who attempt illegal routes into the UK rather than entering via settlement schemes.

While the charity does not take a stance on political matters, Dowie said: “These islands have the reputation for doing the right thing and being decent societies, and we should be very proud of the work we’re doing to bring these people home safe.”

The RNLI’s work rescuing migrants began five years ago, but has greatly increased over the past two years across nine sites stretching between Margate in Kent and Eastbourne in east Sussex. In recent months, volunteers have observed an increase in larger boats, sometimes of up to 50 people, which are even more precarious than smaller vessels.

This reflects the rapid growth in the number of migrants attempting the dangerous crossing this year. Last week, the number of people who had crossed to the UK so far this year reached 8,452, which exceeded the figure for the whole of 2020, when 8,417 people made the trip. A further 600 were intercepted as they made the journey over the weekend.

The RNLI is looking to promote empathy and understanding among the British public with respect to migrants crossing the Channel following criticism on social media of its humanitarian work after the it was included in a Daily Mail article that claimed to reveal “migration madness”.

Dowie said he had spoken to crew members who shared “harrowing” details of “an appalling melting pot of possible risks” to understand the plight facing migrants and wanted to share these more widely. “I understand it’s a polarising and complex situation,” he said. “But unless you’ve experienced being in an open boat in the waves, it’s quite hard to get a feel for what it must be like.”

Anonymised testimonies from crew members released by the RNLI shed light on the dangerous situations for migrants. These include people lost in the ocean for 30 hours in -2C (28.4F) temperatures in January, families suffering from severe heatstroke and sea sickness on sweltering summer days, people travelling on unseaworthy vessels such as inflatable dinghies, sailing catamarans and canoes, or sometimes floating on the broken remnants of boats without any lifejackets, hoping to be saved.

One volunteer described an especially harrowing encounter: “They’d paddled this thing about 80% of the way across the Channel and they’d been doing this all night. They’d made it into the middle of the shipping lane, and they were just so exhausted they couldn’t go on and they had nothing left and they’d stopped. When we got there, they were so tired they hardly reacted to us.”

Other volunteers shared experiences of “vile abuse” on the beach as they returned with people, including young children, in desperate need of medical attention, such as having beer cans thrown at them and people shouting “fuck off back to France”.

RNLI crew members are mostly volunteers and wake up in the middle of the night or leave their regular jobs to rescue people in distress in the sea. Once they return with migrants, they ensure they are safe and well before handing them over to the police and border control officers.

Dowie stressed that the RNLI’s role was solely to save lives, not to act as an additional border control force.

While there had been “strong demand” for the RNLI’s service given the increase in the popularity of British seaside holidays, the charity had the resilience to cope, Dowie said, although he added that it was always trying to recruit more volunteers.

The RNLI, a beloved British institution that does selfless good in the world, turned on by  ignorant racist trolls who’ve been encouraged by our government, media barons and their populist minions. 
 

Shameful days.

They should organise an indoor demonstration for those that think the RNLI wasn't set up to save Black people. Lock the doors and set fire to the place. A shit load of problems solved in one go.

People like that would be the first to squeal if their loved ones got into trouble off the coast and there was no lifeboat service to rescue them.

Farage stirring this up on his Waynes World programme on GB News, calling them a "migrant taxi service."

Awful when emergency services and similar rescue people you fucking hate, regardless of their background or viewpoints, eh?

The RNLI obviously being asked to move to a position of identifying British people in the water who need rescuing by seeing if it's a white bobbing head in the water or a black one. 

 

Social media is to blame for all of this.  The likes of GB news and the hard right can't get away with half the shit they say on mainstream media without the subtext of hideous stuff posted and shared and liked online.  

 

Anonymous should destroy FB and Twitter if they can.  Level it all.
