There has been a concerted effort by the Left, and that includes the BBC, to close down what they see as the ‘Right-wing Press’, an effort that went into overdrive once Murdoch switched his support away from Labour. Leveson failed in its intent to silence the Murdoch media stable but the battle goes on. No chance is lost to conjure up some lurid conspiracy theory connecting the Press to … Continue reading
Vote UKIP and get the BBC. All that is holding back the rampages of a BBC on steroids is the EU….leave the EU and the BBC will be free to crush the commercial sector. Never vote UKIP…hurrah for Carswell and his anti-UKIP Kamikazee death plunge! BBC faces illegal state aid backlash from producers over expansion The BBC faces a major backlash from independent television producers over plans by director-general … Continue reading
Stephanie Hegarty…just what is she good for? What does she bring to the BBC other than trite, anodyne, derivative worthiness that we expect from Anglican priests?…somewhat ironic, as you’ll see….she’s not a fan of Christians. DB on this site and Is the BBC biased? ( Yes it is whatever Cardiff Uni tells us) have been giving Stephanie the old one two for her ever increasingly partisan tweets…. … Continue reading
The best leader Labour never had according to the immediate post mortem as Chuka Umunna ducks for cover having had a taste of the limelight. Will the BBC be chasing him for his response to accusations that this shows that Labour is a shambles, the leadership contest a farce and him a dithering pathetic wannabe who couldn’t hack it? Not so far….all very respectful and sorrowful that Labour … Continue reading
Oh my aching sides. And it was ALL going so well with the BBC relentlessly focusing on UKIP conflicts when suddenly, the “British Obama” Chuka Umunna decides he is stepping down from the Labour leadership race, having announced he was entering on Tuesday! BBC in tears…..
Friday arrives and time for a new Open Thread. BBC seems determined to talk UP UKIP divisions whilst staying mute on the chaos in Labour ranks! Over to you!
Question Time, back to it’s normal time of 10.45 this week comes from Uxbridge, the constituency of new Conservative MP Boris Johnson and a Tory seat for 45 years. So expect the audience to consist of the sweepings of the local Student’s Union bar and a few dozen public sector workers.

Prince Charles’ communications with government have been published after a freedom of information request from the Guardian which reports… The Guardian editor-in-chief, Alan Rusbridger, said: “We fought this case because we believed – and the most senior judges in the country agreed – that the royal family should operate to the same degrees of transparency as anyone else trying to make their influence felt in public life. If … Continue reading
The BBC is straight on the story….no hanging about waiting for facts or details…essentially what they bring us is a headline with the words ‘Election fraud’ and ‘Farage’ in the same sentence…. Fraud probe in Nigel Farage-contested Thanet South seat And that’s it…oooh hang on…there’s more… Kent Police are making inquiries into a report of electoral fraud in the Thanet South seat, contested in the general election … Continue reading
A ’30-day trial’? I’m sure we can hang him out to dry in less time than that…… It is a remarkable thing isn’t it just how much energy the Labour Party and its fellow travellers expend on defending the BBC….the BBC which they insist is in fact right wing and in the pocket of the Conservatives. We had a look at some of this a while back and wrote … Continue reading
Here you go, a John Whittingdale approved OPEN Thread for your completion! Detail the bias here.
The feeding frenzy over Labour’s corpse is gaining momentum with the Unions demanding their pound of flesh and a lurch even more leftward than Red Ed promised to deliver whilst others in the party also say the problem with Labour’s election pitch was that it wasn’t Marxist enough, others want to disinter New Labour on whose grave Miliband junior danced…to the Union tune. Labour was always badly riven … Continue reading
From the Telegraph…. 5Live wasn’t having a good day today…or actually it was the same old stuff we normally get from the BBC….leftist tosh presented as insightful comment. First thing I heard, as posted before, was that the Swedes were to blame for an atheist blogger being hacked to death by Muslim fundamentalists, then we had comedian Sean Hughes invited on to tell us not only about … Continue reading
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. … Continue reading
