QUESTION TIME

I had the great misfortune to catch most of BBC Question Time last evening, recorded at St Paul’s. We had the usual biased panel; Saint Vince Cable (left and much loved by the BBC)  Michael Heseltine (He stabbed Thatcher in the back and is fervently pro EU)  Rev Giles  Fraser (Raving left)  Diana “Divide and Rule” Abbott (Left) and by way of “balance”, the maverick Peter Hitchens.  The part of the debate which REALLY galled was concerning the “white flight” from London — 600,000 WHITE Britains have fled the capital in a decade.  The general consensus is that a/ It is WRONG to record how many White people there are in the Census  2/ Immigration made Britain and London and 3/ Don’t mention Islam.  Abbott was particularly galling, I have to say, claiming on several occasions that the exodus is all about class, not a sense of no longer feeling at home in London as parts of it resemble downtown Jihadistan. Isn’t this the same Abbott who tweeted that “whites like to pay the divide and rule” tactic and who also accused London taxi drivers off being racist? For her to sit there and preen as the very modern incarnation of multicultural magnanimity  was nauseating.  Even by BBC Question Times, this was appalling bias.

    Oh no! Things you don’t agree with aired on Question Time! Views you don’t subscribe to! Opinions at odds with your own!

    Well, if that isn’t prima facie evidence of BBC bias, then I don’t know what is.

    Let’s face it David, the panel would have to consist of Hitchens, Melanie Phillips, Nigel Farage, Matthew Sinclair, John Redwood and Ruth Lea, moderated by Quentin Letts, in order to satisfy your, and others on here, vast collective shoulder chips, wouldn’t it?

    You can rail and rant all you like, but political programmes such as QT should loosely reflect the political makeup of Parliament and the country. And it does.

    I would remind you that the British people have not returned a right wing Government for decades and they’ve never returned a Libertarian one to power.

    So why not have a pop at the British people, rather than the BBC. They’re your real enemy.

      “QT should loosely reflect the political makeup of Parliament and the country. And it does.”

      That is why the BBC appointed the International Socialism Journal and Socialist Review journalist Nicolai Gentchev as the editor of Question Time. Marxists (as you know) are famous for their dedication to freedom of speech.

        Ooh yes – that evil Gentchev wrote for that commie mag 10 years ago, so he must be a Marxist!

        How about that evil Pete Hitchens – he used to be a Marxist too, you know.

        And as for that outrageous political editor, Nick Robinson, he used to be Chairman of the Young Conservatives – so that makes him Himmler’s right hand man!

        I tend to think that people who are so simplistic in their outlook are just simple. And you’ve proved me right, Wild.

            Some of Nicolai Gentchev’s Trotskyite articles are still available online – and I have seen no evidence to suggest he has changed any of his opinions.

            Perhaps he sees himself as the People’s Liberation Front of Judea counterweight to Paul Mason on Newnight.

                ltwf, I suspect you are misrepresenting my remarks on purpose and playing to the gallery (as usual); but just in case you really are as stupid as you sound, let me spell it out:
                 
                I was describing the London of my childhood, where the attitudes towards Blacks and Jews I described were commonplace and went for the most part unchallenged.
                 
                I had a Biology teacher who in one lesson explained to us a great detail how ‘Blacks’ were less intelligent because they had thicker skull mass and therefore smaller brains. A different Science teacher (in a class conversation about John Curry) said she suspected homosexuals were born with a genetic throat defect which is why they all had effeminate voices.
                 
                There was a never ending supply of stories about Queers and Coons and Jews being hook-nosed misers, and if you didn’t laugh you were told to cheer up; “it was just a joke”.
                 
                These were “the good old days”.
                 
                I considered such attitudes ignorant, pathetic and disgusting then and I consider them ignorant, pathetic and disgusting now.
                 
                Is that clear enough for you?

                I was dealing with some troll called Joseph on the recent immigration thread after he had told Thoughtful that her story was little too fanciful for him and contained too many catchphrases. I informed that Thoughtful was a sensible person, regularly posted here and anybody could see from her second post that she was telling the truth. At this point you burst in and said I must be joking
                (I couldn’t be bothered to go back and check the exact words for a pain in the neck like you) with the clear intention of rubbishing what I had just said about Thoughtful and in support of Joseph. You then went on to describe some incident described by Pounce making it clear that you saw it as preposterous invention. Your meaning was perfectly clear – don’t expect me to get bored stiff in nit picking and hair splitting about terminology with a troll like you (one that talks ignorant crap about Islam and assumes their automatic moral superiority on the basis of it) and who spouts BS about me backing off into shadows.

              Still, their claim of victory at having engineered/brainwashed a hefty section of the population into a leftist mindset (through our socialist education system, mass immigration and the BBC) does have more than a ring of truth to it.

      Mr Collins, you state: “You can rail and rant all you like, but political programmes such as QT should loosely reflect the political makeup of Parliament and the country. And it does.”

      But does it? The majority of people in this country are decent sorts, not racist in the true definition, but they have had enough of immigration which has now reached the population replacement point rather than simply adding to our “diversity.”

      They are also rightly concerned about the huge demographic growth of Islam and the rise in the radicalisation of young Muslim males.

      These are perfectly acceptable moral and social concerns. They are shared by the majority of people in this country. They are NOT represented in the make up of QT panellists or audience.

      I’m sure you are perfectly well aware of this, but you are clearly a leftist and carry with you the usual leftist ideology, which is to deny a voice to those you disagree with and to constantly propagandise to this end.

      Leftists are associated with the ruin of countless countries over the last century, economically, environmentally, morally, spiritually and murderously.

      It is odd you still think you hold the moral high ground when you are directly linked to the greatest killing machine the world has ever known. And I include Nazism in that, because Hitler really was a Socialist.

      Never forget that Hitler allied himself with Stalin just after the start of WWII when they carved up Poland between them.

      We fought you then, and we will fight you now, because you evil incarnate.

      So he is well aware of the difference between those he named, and those that usually populate the Question Time panel. This shows awareness of BBC bias, but only that he wants to deny it, which we here were all aware of anyway, but it confirms it for everybody.

      I would remind you that the British people have not returned a right wing Government for decades

      Would that be the same number of decades since Thompson observed a MASSIVE LEFT WING BIAS at the BBC?

      By Jove, I think he’s beginning to understand the purpose of the site, although no doubt he’ll ‘misunderstand’ just what exactly I’m referring to.

      I’ve just watched half an hour of this Leftist propaganda trash and had to turn it off. The panel were all raging Lefties, apart from Hitchens, who must now know how Colonel Custer felt and the audience constituted primarily lefty-metro types; there was also an atrociously left-wing BBC ‘plant’ in the audience who gave a pre-determined rant about being a case worker and the evils of demonising benefit recipients. It as simply revolting bias.
      That Rev Giles was a left-wing disgrace and what on Earth was that loathsome bigot Diane Abbott doing on the BBC after her racist comments? Could you imagine if a Tory, UKIP or BNP politician had said “blacks like to play divide and rule”?

    The standard of BBC journalism is heading down to East Ender’s script level.

        Someone who trolls a blog insulting and deprecating everyone who uses it regularly and calling them haters is a good example of a hater, himself. -I’ve seen Pink News described as a ‘hate site’ at Cranmers blog. But what is really contemptible about you is that you are a disruptor of serious discussion and have no intention or interest in the way a state financed institution fails in its duty of impartiality and distorts the public discourse as a result. The result is an ill-informed or mis-informed public and that is a danger to democracy. Your assumption of moral superiority is. in fact, an inversion of reality.
        Nobody said the Muslims are going to take over – that’s just your rather sinister refusal to speak seriously, although the Koran, a book they all take very seriously, happens to tell them to take over, when practical and by force if necessary.

    I don’t often catch Question Time these days (not good for my blood pressure) but I did see last night’s. We had the remark by Rev’ Giles who claimed that London was becoming too expensive for the poor to live. Diane Abbott told us that “white flight” was nothing of the sort and just wealthy people deciding to leave. So if the poor can’t afford to live there and the rich are leaving who the bloody hell is living there?
    Anyway, it was lovely to hear the soothing words of the ruling elite, pacifying any worries I may have had about over crowding, lack of jobs for our children, or the dreadful problems faced in state schools that have to deal with kids with no English.
    Of course if you have the money like Ms Abbott..

    Oh really?

    So where is your debate on BBC bias then?

    You don’t have any.

    Let me guess, you are a “Teacher” aren’t you?

    This is not a 6th form “debate” where you can bully folk into your way of thinking, calling people on here “Wasssist”, “Homophobe”, “Islamophobe” “Bigot” or even…eeeek!….”Right wing” don’t wash sunshine, a bit like you…we have heard every negative term since 97′, and have become a tad bored with them now, perhaps you and your chums on the left can dream up some new words to tar anyone who differs from your point of view?

    Anything with an “Ism” “Ist” or “Phobe” will do.

    Your childish attempts to stifle are wasted, why not head somewhere where your ill thought out, temper tantrums may be more appreciated…The Guardian has many, many left wing stories for you to ponder, alas, you might have a little difficulty adding your stimulating thoughts to said debates, likewise, The BBC*

    The idea that the few regulars here are capable of any form of debate is sadly refuted by the torrent of abuse that descends upon anyone daring to disagree. Apparently I have been outed as a moslem BBC employee with a subscription to the guardian and involved in some leftist conspiracy to turn the UK into a caliphate. Oh and let’s not forget the heavy handed attempts at condescension which usually are total own goals. It doesn’t bother me as the perceptions are as accurate as a Sun bio.

    However the reactions do undermine the site so keep them coming!

      This is like Groundhog Day.

      Do you know whow ridiculous you sound? You have had countless opportunities on here to join serious, grown-up debate about any number of accusations of bias against the BBC. Your absence from the more shocking examples such as 28gate and Balen (often despite specific ‘invitations’ to you to comment) has been noted – time and again. Instead, you choose to lash out with childish, sweeping accusations which frankly do your credibility no good, reflect badly on the BBC that all they can manage is the likes of you to defend them and, unsurprisingly, is the only tool in the box – play the man and not the ball – that Leftists have when they know an argument is well beyond them.

    Will INBBC make clear that ‘Question Time’ and all other INBBC programmes will not have Galloway as guest speaker, given his hostile attitude of non-acceptance of an Israeli on a public platform?

    Years ago when I was training as a miner I came across a committed communist (he was German) and he said to me (19) that the pact that the soviets signed in 39 was the point that devided anyone who was a believer in communism and being a cultist. This was a man who had eaten his own shoes during the retreat from Russia

      Stalin expected Hitler’s forces to be seriously weakened in the early stages of the war by the British and the French, at which point he planned to step in and clean up. In reality, Hitler took France with relative ease and Stalin was horrified. His pact with Germany was nothing more than helping him play a waiting game.

      As for what his forces did to the Poles – history speaks for itself, though not on the BBC.

    I too find it depressing. QT and AQ are both the same frightening leftie mouthpieces. I will stop watching/listening because it saddens me to see our counrty being so heavily influenecd by left-wing ideology. I dread to think what the intended end-game is but they have just been serialising Orwell’s works. I always thought 1984 was supposed to be a warning, not a template.

    I’d forgotten – us old straights will all be dead soon – wasn’t that the line. The trouble is that the young grow up and learn from experience that you tell a tree by the fruit it bears. The Beeb has put out a hell of a lot of hostages to fortune: AGW is 100% certain, EU and UN can’t be faulted, Islam is a noble religion, the NHS is the envy of the world, slightly left of centre is the default position for all right thinking people, Israel is the oppressor of the Palestinians, everything in the multi-culti garden would be idyllic if it wasn’t for racist whites, it’s irrelevant what the background of child groomers is etc etc. The HRA is proving a little ridiculous, Savile blew up in their faces and they are having to obfuscate and rely on a short public memory to cover up the fact that they got the ‘Arab spring’ very wrong. The wheels could quite easily fall off your little juggernaut of progress you seem to think is careering along the path of historical progress leaving us poor fools behind. Also remember that a lot of people read this blog who don’t post: if members of a particular section of the population behave outrageously, they have no right to complain if this results in prejudice against them.

    Well said, David. Trolls like Steve do not want to debate, which to me underlines the weakness of their position. There have been countless opportunities for Dez, Scott & co to prove the bias does not exist if that is what they truly believe but they have chosen not to challenge the many threads on here – just in the short time I have been visiting the site – which have thrown up some real corkers. Ask them to justify the BBC’s stance on global warming, its barefaced lying over 28gate, it’s refusal to release Balen, its redacting of evidence in the Pollard report, the appointments of Purnell and Self etc etc and they don’t want to know.

    A thread dedicated to re-iterating the BBC’s obligation, and that of its employees, to impartiality might sober them up a bit, though judging by some comments I’d guess most trolls are not interested in a level playing field, or even democracy.

    This site is about bias at the BBC, and it arrogantly ignoring its commitment to imapartiality. Most who post on here who remember the BBC of (very) old simply want to see balance. We are not getting it and the many, many examples of bias which go unchallenged are the proof.

    We should all keep calm, stick with intelligent debate and commentary, and ignore anything that doesn’t.

    Totally agree. The stupid childish insults demean this site.

    Back to QT.
    DA did not think jurors should need educational qualifications to serve on a jury and castigated Hitchens for daring to suggest this. The camera repeatedly caught her making faces at Peter Hitchens whenever he spoke.
    She should have been asked if she thought that black people on trial should be tried with a jury composed entirely of black people.
    She did after all, in, 1996 claim that at her local hospital “blonde, blue-eyed Finnish girls” were unsuitable as nurses because they had “never met a black person before. She went on to say that black people should be looked after by their own kind.
    Presumably, she would apply that racist criterium to jurors as above.

    I switched over part way though the non debate on immigration statistics and London; so presumably missed the discussion about the guilty finding on three Muslim would be mass murderers earlier that day.
    What did I miss exactly?

    And you are not filled with prejudice! It’s difficult to imagine someone who throws around more stereotypical emotive disparagement based on their own particular viewpoint than you manage to do in a very small space. You seem to be a great fan of a very limited area of acceptable discourse and heaping contempt on to anybody who steps outside it – one, which, surprise, surprise corresponds to all your prejudices. Still as global temperatures go down, as government has no idea whether we will have a massive influx of Bulgarians and Romanians, young men from a certain cultural group plan insane acts of indiscriminate slaughter – I could go on – people who have a non-BBC type outlook on these things are mean spirited nasty little oiks. This from someone who has the online manners of a borderline psychotic.

    I’m all for freedom of speech – but I don’t like people deliberately and systematically lying. If my heavy criticism of Islam makes you think I’m against freedom of conscience you are wrong: but if your religion teaches things that are unacceptable to -and indeed make you hostile to- the rest of the population you have to be honest about that -not obfuscate and lie – and also question whether you have come to this country entirely in good faith.

    I oftenn used to wonder why the useful idiots of the “liberal” left always stood up to protest loudly about how islam was such a great religion…….don’t insult islam,religion of peace blah blah blah

    then i got my answer…….the lefty beeb,it was admitted was basically scared shitless of offending the religion of peace in case its adherents came looking for them-as opposed to christianity being fair game due to the fact that they knew they could say and do almost anything about it without having to look over their shoulders for a believer walking into tv centre with a rather bulky looking overcoat or a sword about 4 foot long to engage in a spirited debate about how offended they were

    no-they are cowards pure and simple

    but their pet religion preaches murder of homosexuals,and practices it in openly in iran,and probably it also happens in Saudi as well.

    why aren’t the usual mouthy lefties clamouring for “gay rights” in muslim countries,or Stonewall protesting openly in Riyadh or Tehran?

    because that’s basically all they are-all mouth and no trousers,spouting off where they know they can get away with it without ending up in tiny pieces or with their head in their hands-literally

    selective gobbing off…….it’s what they do best.

    I wait with baited breath for Jerry springer the musical 2,the story of mohammed according to lefty gobshites

    whenever you grow the balls to pull that one off,and broadcast it into the heart of the middle east,then you might earn a bit of respect from us

    until then…………to quote father jack………you can FECK OFF!
