    Yet, again we witness the labour govt trying its best to undermine the Royal family, or should i say, use it as a diversion from Bird Flu (the lack of preparations)

    The troop deployment to Afghanistan (lack of funding for the forces), the situation in Iraq, Council Tax rises which is even more important, given the local elections which labour will be absolutely annihilated in…

    Unstoppable consumer debt now at record levels, the worst trade gap ever, these 2 in particular will make a monumental effect should the international markets shift suddenly. thereby, indirectly effecting peoples ability to pay council tax..

    the govt has a lot to answer for.

    In addition to the lack of action against terrorists living and operating out of london/ england.

    The politicisation of the Police force. Bad law becoming even worse introduced by the govt.

    There is so much the media should be focusing on, and not wasting its time acting like emotional little school girls, giggling about a man’s private diaries..

    I think any newspaper who publishes such views is really just demonstating its undeniable support of a failing Govt, and clearly its editorial team has no talent whatsoever, in terms of reporting the real news.

    Have we got our Policemen allocated by ward yet in London? is this a 24/7 allocation, or do the police only work 9-5 ? if so what a crock. crime takes place 24/7 if the govt hadnt worked it out. Why else would old Tone be protected around the clock otherwise? the threat to him doesnt go away because it gets dark?

    In which case, think about the rest of us for a change…there is no fancy way to do policing. Just policing.

    I think i’ve said my bit. 🙂

    Forget David Irving from my earlier post; instead the Today team need to get Ahmadinejad on to give the “Protocols” version of the mosque bombing conspiracy:-

    “President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blamed the United States and Israel on Thursday for the blowing up of a Shi’ite shrine’s golden dome in Iraq, saying it was the work of “defeated Zionists and occupiers.”

    The muslim defence to the 9/11 attack appears mainly to centre on the “Jewish Conspiracy” theory.
    Muslims could not have done it because they are lovers of peace.
    This begs the question, who is doing the murder carnage and destruction in Iraq?

    In Palestine the “stirring up” can easily be pinned on the Israelis, a bit of black and white for old Aunty.

    The simple fact is that Iran is enriching uranium to generate electricity like a peaceloving nation. It is a big country and distributing electric power from nuclear reactors would be prohibitively expensive if they used HT cables strung between pylons as in other countries.

    The Islamic Republic has therefore built a series of Shahab ballistic missiles to distribute electric power in these rural areas; but sadly the North Korean guidance system is imperfect and one of the Shab 3 missiles left the sovereign borders of the Islamic Republic and veered off towards the Shiite shrine in Samarrah……….Islamic rockets know their way

    re: Today and Naughtie…

    Does anyone else get highly annoyed at Naughtie’s interviewing style?

    I mean, he doesnt just ask a question – he literally frames a question into a viewpoint and rabbits on and on and on for bloody ages. the interviewee manages to get a word in edgeways, but its always less than Naughties very very long winded question/opinion.

    is it just me that notices it?
    (and thereby switches off Today if Naughtie is on…)

    “never meant to be offensive” according to the beeb..

    well he has been and yet, he hasnt the decency to say sorry.

    He can preach his hatred to everyone and get away with it. He should be held accountable for his actions and words.

    None of this one rule for him and one for another business.

    Livingstone should be held accountable.

    If that had been a Conservative minister, my god, it’d be going on to this day, “racist tory”. but oh no, with the labour party, racism is permitted…

    and they wonder why no one trusts them…they should do the right thing and own up…and then face the consequences as with pleading guilty in a court of law…

    archduke. Re Naughtie, yeah me too. His questions to Alistair Darling (Transport Sec) were written by Greenpeace by the sounds of things, no attenpt at ‘balance’ whatsoever.

    Allowing Clooney et al free, unchallenged airtime to Bush bash is sickening but sadly de rigeur at Socialism ‘Today’. At least the interviewer (who she) picked up Clooney when he inferred Bush is an idiot – and reminded Clooney that Bush won the election didn;t he? Clooney mumbled “er.. yeah but his figures are way down…blah…Iraq..oil..etc”

    There must be a gap in the market for some right-wing talk radio to counter-balance Radio4?…

    “Who are all these people that keep posting that a muslim would never destroy a mosque,so the west(america,britian)must have done it.So who are are these people that are now attacking sunni mosques in retaliation?Must be a bunch of undercover westerners,because a muslim would never attack a mosque.Right?”

    I’d like to see the loonies answer that one, but I can’t because I’m off to blow up a mosque in Iraq while wearing a false beard.

    Rob White,

    I’m more concerned about the mosques containing Korans! After the killings in Afghanistan related to the “Koran flushing”, who knows what the Islamic world will do about a Koran destroyed in a Mosque.

    Especially when its been done by undercover Mossad or CIA operatives.

    (Has anybody seen the documentary “Control Room”? It’s a fly-on-the-wall documentary about Al Jazera in the Iraq war. The editor is in a meeting and people start talking about “Zionist Conspiracies”. He tells them all they are talking rubbish – “If a drain bursts in Damascus, we blame the Israelis. It’s never because of our own incompetence…”)

    Thanks Natalie – I heard the interview on my way to work, and was gobsmacked that Naughtie said nowt but ‘thank you very much’. Can you imagine his response if (say) an Israeli politician, or a far-right one, had come out with something so idiotic ?

    This kind of inverse racism in the BBC, where they won’t give an Arab the intellectual respect of challenging him (but will give him a platform for lunatic views) is very depressing.

    Susan, Ritter, gordon-bennett,

    I’m trying to figure out a way to challenge those little editors with their big pairs of scissors on (D)HYS.

    I’ve tried their ‘complaints’ facility, which is a joke because they don’t respond, and I’m amazed by their abilty to continually invent underhand ways to skew the responses they get. They’ve stopped publishing my contributions even though they are generally milder than the ones reproduced on this thread.

    So how could they possibly have published those comments, thoughtfully saved by Susan and Ritter?

    Well, I suppose they were short of senior snip-snip artists and whoever was left in charge was under the impression that he/she was actually required to do an honest job.

    gordon-bennett – not a bad idea to bombard them with comments they’ve published and then slyly withdrawn. I suppose one or two of those believers in Mohammed complained.

    In the BBC’s increasingly dhimmified world, it’s probably already unacceptable for an infidel to even mention the word ‘Koran’, unless it’s in terms of glowing respect.

    Why would you pull a comment like that unless you were being accused of offending someone ? That stinks.

    Look the real point about the BBC is that they do not understand relgion at all. Most of them are superficially aware but few have any theological depth, and most are narcissistic and deranged.

    Islam is a mystery to them but they have made the association that heads are severed, hands cut off, women raped, men killed in the street, and that the authorities are running scared. This means that if you have spent your life shooting your mouth off and running away when the big guy comes to the door; you are not likely to want to provoke head-choppers.

    This is the simple level of these types – they are “all mouth and no trousers”.

    They are a group terrified of physical violence which defines bullying as name-calling, and is not well-attuned to resisting physical threats. If other groups get to the stage of threatening to liquidate journalists they too will be accorded full respect.

    This is the generation that talks big and walks small.

    Rick

    Your comments about religion and the beeb are interesting. I found the following on their pages earlier:

    Below are three quotes from the religion pages on the BBC website. First is from the Islam one:

    “Allah is the name Muslims use for the supreme and unique God, who created and rules everything.”
    Note the presumption here that their exists a supreme and unique God.

    “Christians believe that there is only one God, whom they call Father as Jesus Christ taught them.”
    Here, we have Christians believe that. A phrase sadly lacking from the Islam one.

    I may be totally and utterly reading something from nothing here, but, when it comes to the only one that stands to any kind of reason, we have the following phrase, in reference to the atheistic view that people only believe in god because it is in their nature.

    “Even if this is true (which it probably is) this doesn’t mean that God doesn’t exist, but merely that we are psychologically likely to believe in God whether or not he exists”
    The thing that bugs me about this is the presence of a counter argument, as if it’s been written by someone who thinks that god does exist. I’ve looked (not terribly hard I must admit) for similar qualifications in the other religions’ pages and can find nothing of the sort.

    I also particularly enjoyed on the reasons page about atheism the comment “There is very little real evidence for the existence of God”, which an atheist (worth his salt) would word as “There is no evidence for the existence of god”

    The level of respect afforded to the beliefs of different religions (or not) appears to differ somewhat

    It’d be a little more complex than that. “There” exists, but in what state? you cacn’t measure it’s state without collapsing it in to a particular state, so “there” technically exists in every possible state it can assume until you observe it, or until something interfaces with it. Of course, that other thing exists in a superposition of states too, which makes everything a bit quantum.

    In other words, everything you know is wrong. And at the same time, right. This statement is false.
