You have to hand it to the BBC, they do have chutzpah! How else to explain them doing their level best to portray notorious race hustler Diane Abbott as a role model for women entering politics?
Women may be deterred from entering politics because of abuse suffered by female MPs, Diane Abbott says. The shadow home secretary said she was speaking out about her own experiences after recently receiving a series of threats and insults. Last week Brexit secretary David Davis was branded “sexist” for reportedly sending a text saying he would not hug Ms Abbott because he was “not blind”.
Now to be fair, David Davis was wrong to say what he did. I don’t believe that a blind person would want to hug the odious Abbott, not for her looks but for her vile political views. The BBC may be seeking to confer Sainthood on Abbott but I am convinced the more she speaks the more she destroys Labour.
I’m old enough to remember when the BBC took a very sympathetic line to the old USSR. But things have changed and the BBC now leads the charge against Putin. They have worked themselves up into a frenzy over the resignation of General Flynn, delighted that a scalp has been obtained so early on in the life of the Trump administration. They aren’t bothered about how it came to be that Flynn was hung out to dry by Obama era operatives still within the US intelligence services – the “Deep State’ as some refer to it. No, the BBC angle is that Trump is colluding with Putin in ways that they can’t quite work out, and so endless hours are being given to examining the issue. Russia IS the BBC bogey-man, the nation that they would quite like us to go to war – and their visceral hatred of Putin shows,
Another day and another instance of poverty hustling from the well off given max publicity on the BBC.
Nearly a third of the population of Britain is living on an “inadequate” income, according to research by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). In 2014-15, it said that 19 million people were living on less than the Minimum Income Standard (MIS). It said the problem was that household costs have been rising, while incomes have stagnated.
Now the Rowntree Foundation specialises in this kind of specious clap trap, continually whining about just how awful life is and how dreadful the inequality is that afflicts our Nation. I was amused at this new “measure” of what constitutes “inadequate” income – yes, the sexy new MIS.
The MIS is set by experts at Loughborough University, and is based on what members of the public think is a reasonable income to live on.
“Experts” at a University and based on what “the public think” – utterly risible and yet allowed to generate BBC headlines. It’s a toss up between the Resolution Foundation and the Rowntree Foundation as to which can get the most mileage for their left wing agenda from the BBC.
I’ve noticed a regular theme with Labour MPs allowed to canter around BBC studios. Take little Owen Smith, who was on BBC Question Time last night. He stated that “Trump is a proven racist and misogynist”. He isn’t alone in repeating this libel as if it were a fact. In truth I doubt Trump is remotely bothered about what this insect thinks but if I appeared on the BBC and suggested that Diane Abbott is a “proven racist” I suggest I would be given short thrift.
It’s so transparent, isn’t it? I’m talking about the BBC’s desperation to try and prop up Comrade Corbyn. Labour is melting down around Brexit, with feverish talk of rebellion and resignations, and the BBC prefers to run on the crunch issue of….a Council tax rise or lack of! This non event is being given maximum publicity by the Comrades even as Labour burns. Delightful
