A fresh open thread as old one is going to become unwieldy soon.
Via Jihadwatch: We have been given one transcript by the British Media of what one of the killers of the British soldier said: ‘We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reasons we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye a tooth for tooth. We apologise that women had to see this … Continue reading
A shocking and savage attack on a young man who is thought to have been a soldier in London. As we look at this subject it should be remembered that a family has just had a knock on the door from an Army officer who is bringing them some traumatic and tragic news…not just that their son is dead but that he died in such a way. The assumption is … Continue reading
Well done BBC, it only took you FOUR hours to move the decapitation of a British soldier on the streets of Woolwich by Islamic jihadists ABOVE the shooting of an Islamic Jihadist in Florida. Nauseating. I’m out of the UK at the moment so can see the BBC world pages running order and it has only just changed. Still, at least they are no longer claiming it may have been … Continue reading
Yes, it’s a popular meme with the BBC these days and a great excuse for Auntie to bash any recalcitrant “swivel eyed conservative loons” and I took part on a debate on the topic yesterday on the BBC Nolan Show. In summary my opposition to gay marriage is that I believe legalising it will restrict the liberty of those who may feel otherwise (such as most UK Churches) and that … Continue reading
Comrade Miliband is rushing into declaring war on Google, as the BBC breathlessly reports here. In a sense, Red Ed is only following in the wake of Cameron, Osborne and Clegg, who all queuing up to bash any corporation that dares take advantage of the tax code complexity put in place by…erm..politicians! Anyway, my point is not the blatant posturing of the political class on this issue (that’s just a … Continue reading
Picture the scene. France under President Hollande goes against the will of the gay community and rules out the prospect of”gay marriage”. A gay man, distraught at this news, goes to the altar at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris and shoots himself, in despair. Can you IMAGINE the BBC take on that? Right, now compare with how they deal with this.
Here you go folks, a band new shiny Open Thread to detail the bias!
As we all know, the BBC deploys the finest journalists that our money can buy to bring us the news that really counts. So, isn’t odd this missed this? Swedish police arrested eight people after riots in Husby spread to other Stockholm suburbs last night as young people set fire to cars and schools and vandalized property. About 30 cars burned overnight in suburbs including Husby, Jakobsberg, Norsborg and Vaarberg, Kjell Lindgren, a … Continue reading
Nigel Farage was recently set upon by Scottish nationalists who serenaded him with offensive, racist chants which included ‘you can stick your Union Jack up your a***’ and ‘go back to England, you’re not welcome here’. He said they were Fascist scum…not far wrong there. Alex Salmond, instead of distancing himself from this rabble of extremists practically aligned himself with them…and denounced Farage as having ‘lost the plot’ and … Continue reading
The BBC has been tiptoeing around the fallout of the Rochdale and Oxford sex abuse revelations…and has begun to come to terms with there being some connection to religion in the choice of victims and the way they were treated. Will that translate into a wider and more open discussion about Islam and an examination of its real meaning and consequences just as the BBC does with Christianity? Investigating and challenging the … Continue reading
Guest Who provided us with this link that reports on the BBC’s ability or inability to broadcast the independence vote and the Commonwealth Games……when you read it you might ponder the case for the BBC’s move to Salford….especially when the BBC admits that …..’the referendum will be the most important constitutional event in these islands in 300 years.’ Here is the BBC’s report of the Scottish Parliament’s deliberations on the … Continue reading
Last week, the US President had to use a joint press conference with the Turkish Prime Minister to address His domestic troubles regarding the whole Benghazi mess, as well as the growing scandal of political intimidation by the IRS. The BBC helpfully spelled out all the White House talking points while censoring the two most important facts of both stories. Obama tries to tame political tempests After briefly outlining the … Continue reading
