A Lost Wedding Ring in the Era of Covid

This morning I had an experience which was extremely poignant on more than one level. I had just entered my local supermarket having been asked by the security guard on the door if I have a mask to which I’d replied confidently, ‘I’m exempt’, thinking as I strolled past him, ‘exempt from this authoritarian madness’., and I proceeded to peruse […]

Report below from The National followed by Craig’s account and post trial updates: THERE’s been widespread anger after former diplomat and independence blogger Craig Murray was sentenced to eight […]

Hope is a Weapon

Recently, whilst scanning a sea of angry comments on Facebook raging, quite rightly, at the injustice of the Covid scandal, I came across one particular remark which triggered unexpected deep emotion: ‘can anyone offer me some words of hope?’ it read.  I was arrested by this simple plea which seemed to carry more force precisely due to its plaintive directness. […]

Nurses March With 100,000 in London For Truth And Freedom

This co-editor attended the huge protest in London yesterday (April 24th 2021) against the Lockdown, vaccine passports, masks – all restrictions, in fact – and the experimental jab itself. The day was bright sunshine, music, laughter and above all, solidarity. In our own communities we may be outnumbered by the unawakened and it’s easy to feel isolated and depressed, but […]

Did BSNews Change the Uber App on Covid?

I’m Alison Banville, co-editor of BSNews. Below are my emails to Uber’s press office. I’d had a driver arrive, demand proof of my mask exemption, then drive off when I told him he’d breached the law by asking me. Another driver argued about it when I was in the car, absolutely insisting that ‘it’s Uber policy’ – I’m constantly amazed […]

The Hague Orders Dutch Covid Curfew to End Immediately.

The Hague ruled today that the Dutch night time curfew should be lifted immediately because it is, the court ruled, ‘a far-reaching violation of the right to freedom of movement and privacy.’ Significantly, the judge stated that the situation did not meet the standard of “special urgency” needed to bypass the usual legislative process and that the government’s use of […]

A regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is apartheid

By B’Tselem (a technical glitch has listed BSNews editor as author, apologies. We’re working on it) More than 14 million people, roughly half of them Jews and the other half Palestinians, live between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea under a single rule. The common perception in public, political, legal and media discourse is that two separate regimes operate […]

Lockdown Adventures: Navigating a Police State

I had a run in with the fake law last week whilst going about my business, which is journalism. Four PCSO’s (police community support officers) in full Robocop gear wanted to know what I was doing ‘out and about’ as I was about to talk to a restaurant owner. When I realised they were only Community police I immediately walked […]

I’m Pro-Brexit But I Won’t Date British Men

Brexit. I’m for it. Immigration I’m for it. And I have damn good reasons for adopting both positions. Oh yes. Come with me, reader, and I’ll square this circle for you. I’m a Leftist. But unlike all these lily-livered, soft-left/liberal, hand-wringing, virtue-signalling, Guardian reading remoaners (I prefer The Morning Star and independent media which doesn’t cheerlead for illegal oil wars) […]
