START THE WEEK OPEN THREAD

Monday arrives and so does this new Thread. Anyone catch an interview with an Amnesty spokesman on Today this morning. He was wriggling like mad trying to distance his organisation from the Jihad apologists in Cage and was lobbed far too many soft ball questions. The BBC treats Amnesty with kid gloves and I can recall doing a BBC debate with Moazzam Beggs. He was accompanied to the studio by the local Amnesty Rep.

JIHADI JOHN – BLAME MI5

Well then, the BBC is a curious one. Firstly it names the Islamic State decapitator-in-Chief, Mohammed Emwazi. Fair enough. It then proceeds to ponder is he really a victim of a bungling MI5. It also calls him a “militant” when he is by any definition a terrorist - cutting the heads off innocent people IS terrorism, dear BBC. The BBC have taken the same approach with the three teenage Jihadi brides from the East End of London who legged it to hook up with Islamic State. The question was how had the State failed. where were the Intelligence services. At no point does the BBC choose to ask the most penetrating question of all – why do some Muslims living in Britain appear to have a greater loyalty to our enemies than to our country? I guess that might open up all sorts of tricky issues so better say nothing and just blame MI5?

LOVING NICHOLA

Let’s face it. Nichola Sturgeon’s speak a language the BBC really loves and no, I am not talking Scottish! Her third rate socialism, driven by a hatred of England, resonates with the BBC and it encourages them to puff out this glowing item on her demands of the Westminster Parliament. ¬†She waffles on about how “austerity” isn’t working and yet the BBC does not deign it fit to simply point out that with the UK being the best performing economy in the G7, “austerity” would seem to be delivering something other nations are proud of. The truth is that the BBC and the SNP can rally around these illiterate meme about “austerity” not working. Here in Northern Ireland where there has bee NO Welfare reform(!!!) the BBC faithfully repeats the mantra about the crushing austerity and voices like my own who point out that this is incorrect are simply ignored or mocked. The BBC itself has a culture of Spend Spend Spend and so I suppose it feels a sense of kinship with the goons in the SNP and Sinn Fein who all seek to subvert economic common sense and live outside of what can be afforded.

BBC STARTS THE WEEK IN STYLE

Monday morning arrives and with it the Today programme on BBC Radio 4. The first 30 minutes have been one sustained leftist howl from the State Broadcaster. First up, the BBC hypes up the alleged tax evasions of HSBC, dating back to Labour’s period in power. On comes Margaret Hodge to remind us how evil the “banisters” are. Then we had an item on WHY British business must be made to double the amount of paternity leave for fathers if Labour gets in. Then we had an item begrudging the VICTORY of Tony Abbott in Australia over those who would unseat him. The BBC have never liked Abbott and their coverage makes this clear. Oh and the ONE item the comrades managed to miss was a mass gathering of Muslims at the Cenotaph in London demanding an end to free speech in the UK. I guess the BBC are no longer #jesuischarlie?

MID WEEK OPEN THREAD

Middle of the week and time for a new thread. I noted that Jeremy Bowens was referring to the Islamic savages that burned the Jordanian pilot alive as “fighters” last night, although on the Today programme this morning I heard the word “terrorist” used, which was welcome if overdue. Anyway, here’s a thread for your use!
