    When a BBC employee resigns we all know they’ll just walk straight into another equally over paid and under worked job, courtesy of the nepotistic ‘out-sourcing’ companies the BBC patronize, to keep the bloodline of the BBC progeny flowing through the media’s veins.

    Not a peep about this on the blanket News 24 this morning.

    They do however have two repeating puff pieces. One is of a quote from Trevor Philips that Britain would never vote for a black Prime Minister, the other about a young girl who found a wooly rhino vertebrate – two very newsworthy stories that perfectly justifies why they haven’t been able to fit in notice of the apology broadcast they plan to make.

    the bbc :
    racism “blocking british obama”
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7717149.stm

    the daily mail version:
    LABOUR racism means there will never be a british obama
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1084035/Labour-racism-means-British-Obama-claims-equality-watchdog-chief.html

    guess which one is the correct version.

    yup. the daily mail.

    from that bbc story , here’s what trevor philips actually said:

    “If Barack Obama had lived here I would be very surprised if even somebody as brilliant as him would have been able to break through the institutional stranglehold that there is on power within the Labour Party.

    the bbc – shilling for labour , as per usual.

    After giving this a little thought I concluded I would be quite prepared to vote for a black Conservative prime minister but not a black Labour one. He’s so obssessed with colour he overlooks the obvious. I tink dat Trebor is haffn a laff.

    No Archduke. As i pointed out on an earlier thread, the BBC on Today plied the Mail line, until Phillips came on and pointed out he had been misrepresented; and then they changed the thrust of their top of the hour coverage. Before then they were making the point that phillips had singled out the labour party. So the opposite of shilling for labour.

    And shug, the apologies were regularly trailed on Today

    If Mr Phillips feels that British politics is racist, could he please explain how he ended up in such a powerful position?.

    Mr Phillips seems to be “dry in soul and empty of hope”, yet the amount of people who wish to immigrate to the UK proves how false his repetitive slogans of racism are when put to the test.

    The USA has shown that a minority black can get elected by whites.

    zimbabwe, south africa, etc. show that a minority white cannot get elected by blacks. In spite of the high probability that a white government would succeed where black governments have failed (and always will).
