Labour Skulduggery?

    The Today programme had a look at the Freud affair this morning but there was an essential element missing….Wallace himself .   John Humphrys at around 06:50 began by telling us what Freud had done ‘wrong’ and then we had a comedy sketch of Miliband ‘ambushing’ Cameron at PMQs. This didn’t enlighten us at all and could, if that was the sum total of the Today programme’s coverage, … Continue reading

Hurray For The European Empire

  The BBC announced that it, in the shape of The Media Show (13 mins), would investigate the ‘Media’s’ reporting of Europe…. A new report from the Reuters Institute of Journalism [John Lloyd] argues that the British media’s coverage of the EU is falling short. In spite of increased column inches and headlines since the Eurozone crisis hit, the study claims mainstream papers and broadcasters still struggle to distil and … Continue reading

FREUDIAN SLIP PART TWO….

Alan has already covered the BBC onslaught against Lord Freud today. I wish to point out two further thoughts. First, isn’t is SO convenient that the BBC blasted this on the same day that the Government announced the biggest fall in unemployment in YEARS and at the same time as Miliband was given heat for dismissing the concerns of English voters re “English votes for English laws”. Oh, and then … Continue reading

“Educating Rona Part 1: BBC Staff Admit BBC Leftwing Bias”

I commend this YOUTUBE post to you. Here is the background. “In the run-up to the BBC’s application for the renewal of its Royal Charter – i.e. the legal device by which the BBC has the right to demand a tax of £145.50 of every inhabitor of a U.K. dwelling with a colour TV – the BBC’s adherance to its present Charter’s conditions will come under scrutiny – in particular, … Continue reading

Love You Yusuf

    The singer Cat Stevens became a Muslim….I’m sure it had nothing to do with Islam. However his stated desire to kill Salman Rushdie had everything to do with Islam.   Shame that, present day events considered, the BBC thinks such a person is fit to star on their shows when DLT has been erased from history for squeezing a girl’s boobs.    

Freudian Slip

  Once again you have to ask serious questions about the BBC’s news bulletins which reduce a story to the very minimum in such a way that the facts are so distorted that they give the listener or viewer a very misleading idea of events. Welfare minister Lord Freud has been heard to say that ‘disabled people aren’t worth the minimum wage.’ I was listening in the car to the … Continue reading

Ebola Gay

          From 1976 to 2013 a total of 1,716 people died from Ebola.  Around 45 a year.  Kind of puts things into perspective.   Ebola is being treated as if it were a nuclear bomb ready to detonate and contaminate vast swathes of the world, a huge threat that the drugs industry has ignored despite having known about it for nearly 40 years. The BBC is … Continue reading

Unsettling Science

  Climate models, the tools used to carve up the economy to suit the socialist dreamers, aren’t as reliable as they told us they were. The BBC admits….. Climate change: Models ‘underplay plant CO2 absorption’   Remember that the BBC has in effect banned Lord Lawson from the BBC on the basis that ‘ Lord Lawson’s views on climate change: “are not supported by the evidence from computer modelling and … Continue reading

THAT UNIQUE FUNDING…

What a bit of luck the BBC can slide its hand into our wallets and extract that license tax. Just imagine if it had to finance THIS sort of indulgence itself… The BBC has spent more than £220,000 on iPhone lessons for staff. Figures have revealed the corporation spent licence fee payers’ money teaching 783 employees how to properly use the gadget over a period of three years. This works out at … Continue reading

Chinless Wonders and Chinese Blunders

    The Today programme investigated ‘Chinaphobia’(08:20) and brought us Sir Christopher Frayling, art historian, and Trannia Brannigan from the Guardian, in to enlighten us. Frayling thinks Chinaphobia is alive and kicking and has informed all our perceptions and actions towards China and made us reach conclusions about China that are undeserved and prejudiced. Remarkably perhaps, Trannia, from the Guardian, actually took issue with him and undermined his argument. Personally … Continue reading

That Old Green Hush

    There’s this from the Telegraph: Scrap the Climate Change Act to keep the lights on, says Owen Paterson   And this from the Mail: Britain will run out of electricity unless it axes green target, warns ex-Minister   And then there is this from the BBC:             …a big fat nothing.   Still when they get round to it here’s the format….a quick … Continue reading

Turkey Voting For Christmas

    Interesting take on the world from the BBC. It has been telling us recently that Turkey is in a dilemma concerning ISIS.  On the one hand it doesn’t want a terrorist state on its borders, on the other it doesn’t want to see the Kurds becoming more established and powerful. So Turkey has plumped to support ISIS…probably not too hard a decision for the Islamist Erdogan who no … Continue reading
