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.

    • Saturday evening sees the Reds travel to West London to take on Brentford. It has been 32 years since the two teams met in a competitive fixture which was in the sixth round of the FA Cup and Liverpool won 4-0. And you have to go all the way back to 1947 for the last league fixture which adds a special sense of occasion to this encounter.     Thomas Frank’s side have looked anything but overawed by making the big step up to the Premier League  so far and their fans are bound to be in fine voice at Brentford Community stadium.   Dave Lane from @Beesotted Brentford gave TLW an insight into their unerring belief and how a Liverpool academy graduate has turned into a Bees fan favourite.   It is always good talking to fans of clubs who haven’t been in the top flight for a long period of time and learning about their journey. Can you talk a little bit about the ups and downs of your journey as a Brentford fan and what the moment felt like when you were finally promoted to the top flight after 74 years and that first Premier League game against Arsenal?   Getting promoted at Wembley was one of the most euphoric and surreal moments in out Brentford supporting lives… after so many failed play-off attempts there was a part of us all that never believed we’d witness it. That’s all behind us now, but it will never be forgotten. The build up to the game against Arsenal was amazing too, maybe more of an event than a match, but to be back in the stadium with our mates, and surrounded my likeminded Bees, was special… so was the atmosphere and result. It has given us belief and we know we aren’t out of our depth at this level.     Can you tell our readers about Thomas Frank. To a outsider he looks like a typical new age manager with clear methods and Football philosophy as well as a figure who can connect to fans and players alike How is he viewed by the Bees fanbase?   Thomas Frank is the perfect fit for Brentford and such a nice guy too. He’s certainly not an old school football manager and his relationship with the players shows how much they respect him, the perfect man for a young and promising set of pros, he keeps them grounded and focussed, as well as believing in them when things aren’t always going to plan. Frank has had his doubters, even as recently as last season, and he’s only ever a couple of defeats away from that element to start sharpening the knives again. Frank is the club’s most successful post war manager and the vast majority of supporters hope he’s at Brentford for many years to come.   Quite often new sides to the Premier League find the step up in standard quite daunting and the defence is extremely overworked. However for the Bees it has been remarkably resolute with three clean sheets from five games. Who are the key players behind that impressive statistic?   You’re right, so far we have been solid and well marshalled at the back, Pontus Jansson and Kristoffer Ajer in particular have been immense. Sergi Canos, although not a ‘natural’ right-back has risen to the challenge, and Rico Henry is, in my view, England standard at left-back. David Raya in goal has ironed out the more erratic edge to his play and is a proper sweeper-keeper with excellent distribution and reactions.     One of the longer-term members of the Brentford squad is a former Liverpool academy graduate in Sergi Canos. How important has he been to your progress over the years?   Sergi is another perfect fit at Brentford and as previously mentioned has stepped up this season and relished his chance in the top flight. After his initial loan period from Liverpool, he chose to move to Norwich, but he was soon back in West London where he has cemented a place as a modern club legend. He spent a long time out injured with a knee ligament injury and there were question marks as to whether he’d fully recover his speed, but his versatility and infectious enthusiasm are pivotal in the system we play. He loves Brentford as much as Brentford loves him.   We know that London is a crowded market for Premier League football teams. Is there one particular team that Brentford fans would love to beat or are they all in the enemy camp?   This season’s all about establishing our place at the top table and we will take our wins anywhere and against anyone, however, I’d be a liar if I didn’t want us to beat Chelsea as West London bragging rights over them would be immense. Without Fulham and QPR in the same division, though, a win is a win this campaign at least.     We touched on the clash against the Gunners at the beginning, how much are the fans looking forward to taking on one of Europe’s elite teams on Saturday evening?   Liverpool coming to Brentford is one of the jewels of the fixture list plain and simple. The players will want to prove themselves and the fans will want to savour every moment. Liverpool fans will be welcome in all our pubs and it should be a great afternoon on and off the pitch. Can’t wait!   Is there one Liverpool player that you admire the most?   Liverpool are a class act, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, van Dijk, Diogo Jota, are all world class, and there’s a player in every position that will push us to the limit. But that’s why we are here, to test ourselves against the best. You’ll have plenty to contend with too.   How do you think your manager will set up the team for the big clash and who is the Brentford player that needs to lead from the front to claim a result?    Thomas Frank won’t change things at all in my view, we play our 3/5 at the back football the same whoever the opposition and we will go toe to toe, which may not work out in our favour after 90 minutes, but that’s our mindset. We will create big chances, but we have to take them when they come our way.   Have you got a score prediction?   My head says 3-1 Liverpool, my heart says 2-1 Brentford. I'll go with my heart every time! COYB.

    • That could be a new phrase too. “that’s so Everton”.
    • Yep, to the point that my 9 year old has watched it with her mum and thinks it’s hilarious too, and when I learned that I thought “yeah, actually there’s nothing that needs to be censored for her to enjoy it”
    • Incidentally, here are some of those Tweets that don't exist.        
    • Ah, okay, when you called me a liar multiple times for saying that people were calling Starmer a Tory, that was what confused me.   So what we have instead is a disagreement over why people are calling Starmer a Tory. You have decided, apropos of nothing, that it's because of one small portion of his essay, whereas I assert that it relates to the thing taken as a whole and/or a different bit, which I have specifically seen people refer to.   If you want to talk about lies, let's start with the claim that anyone has said that the purpose of government is to support private businesses rather than people.
