    A real humdinger of bias by omission:

    Google News – “institute for fiscal studies” source:bbc

    Now why did the BBC go large on the IFS over ‘cuts’ but hasn’t mentioned the more recent IFS report on the US’s superior health services?

    Daily Mail — Middle-aged Britons are healthier than Americans but die sooner ‘because our healthcare system is worse’

    Anyone catch Sarah “Birdbrain” Montagu on the Beeboid Pensions strike  this morning?  
    Well, for those of you that missed it, there were no less than 3 stabs at the story on Today. Three! I missed 2 of them (a man can take only so much of a morning) but the 3rd was a classic.  
    Hell hath no fury like a Beeboid being deprived of his/her/its silver spoon, and Montagu used the slot to viciously attack one of the 8463937865 Beeboids who works in BBC HR.  
    It was truly hilarious, not so much a news item as a mugging.  Firstly Montagu scathingly attacked the whole BBC HR apparatus, pointing out that something like 10 of the top paid HR positions in the UK are ALL BBC staff! Simply incredible!  
    But it was also notable by the personally vindictive tone, and by the by the overt way the slot was used to advance a particular self interest (ie that useless Beeboids are naturally entitled to, errrr, everything they want, and that we – the public – must pay).  
    Thirdly, one soon realised there was really very little objective editorial merit in the story. Frankly nobody gives a xxxx whether Jocasta and Rupert are having their little pension problem or not. But  for the national broadcaster, Beeboid news IS the news. As ever.  
    Are these people REALLY so insular and stupid? Yes, I think they are.  
    PS  Wasn’t it a pleasure it was not to have the Today programme during the  Beeboid strike? One felt so much happier on so many levels. Read Boris in the DT about this… he absolutely nails it.

    I noted on Sunday how the BBC compared to ITV reported that the jobless would be made to do a little work or may loose benifit. 
    The BBC only talked about the problems this would cause quoting only those that spoke against it. 
    ITN whilst also quoting the negative had also sent a team to Chelmford to talk to unemployed men who were doing a kind of pilot scheme. All of them were very positive about it, on how it was helping them. 
    It just shows how biased the BBC were and how ITV had  shown both sides. ITV had reported it correctly . Whereas the BBC again showed only the one side it believes in. 
    Just who will sort out the BBC. It is in breach of its charter all the time. 


  6. Deborah says:

    I listened to the 5pm headlines on Radio 4 where Parliament were described as having ‘kicked out’ Phil Woolas.  Now I cannot decided if it is dumbing down or listening to the voice quality of the Newsreader her utter disgust that this should happen to her friend Phil.

    However when the headlines were repeated it became that Mr Woolas has been ‘removed’.  Was there a complaint or did even the BBC realise that the description of ‘kicked out’ was inappropriate.


    • TrueToo says:

      Probably an editorial intervention. After all, the BBC has to pretend to be impartial.


    • Millie Tant says:

      The Beeboid corporation often uses colloquial expressions such as that in its news programmes or news website articles. It is part of the sloppiness and poor standard of English shown by many of those now employed by the BBC.

      It’s the world’s greatest broadcaster, you know!

    Hmm, BBC 6PM news has forgotten about Phil Woolas it appears.


  8. Umbongo says:

    Oh dear!  I cannot find this news anywhere at the BBC but, according to WUWT (http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/11/08/public-carbon-trading-dead-in-the-usa/ ) , the Chicago Carbon Exchange has finally closed its doors.  This was the load of crap that was bought for $600 million in May this year.  Apparently the shyster who is currently head of state of the USA was involved in its creation – per the WUWT report

    Barack Obama was a board member of the Joyce Foundation that funded the fledgling CCX. Professor Richard Sandor, of Northwestern University had started the business with $1.1 million in grants from the Chicago-based left-wing Joyce Foundation enthusiastically endorsed by Obama. When founded in November 2000, CCX’s carbon trading market was predicted to grow anywhere between $500 billion and $10 trillion. Fortunately before its collapse Sandor was able to net $98.5 million for his 16.5% stake when CCX was sold.

    Apparently, in August 2002, Sandor was chosen by TIME magazine as one of its “Heroes for the Planet” for his work as the founder of the Chicago Climate Exchange. No wonder the BBC doesn’t want (you to) know.  This guy and the Risen Christ of Pennsylvania Avenue might have feet of clay.

    Despite much twitter-hype within the BBC/luvvie community, and numerous publicity appearances on the BBC itself, Mitch Benn’s Proud Of The BBC song didn’t even make it into the top 100 of the singles charts in its first week of release.

    Just sayin’.


  10. Martin says:

    Wow Woolas gets 10 seconds next to the price of a stamp going up. I can’t imagine Coulson getting the same treatment.

    On the subject off the scandal of the deaths at the typical shit hole NHS hospital in Mid Staffs, not a single mention on the BBC that Liebour’s targets obsession might have a part to play. Bet if it was the Tories the BBC would make it the MAIN story.


  11. Martin says:

    Reported in most of the media, anyone like to take a guess which main broadcaster hasn’t reported it?


    Ofcom has ruled that Islam Channel, a London-based broadcaster, broke the broadcasting code for advocating marital rape, violence against women and describing women who wore perfume outside of the home as “prostitutes”.


  12. Oliver says:

    From the BBC news website: Gordon Brown guest edits wife’s Twitter feed for Burma

    A strange headline for an article which is mostly (3/4 at a guess) concerned with the progress of the Burmese election (and not GB’s twattering).

    Strange how GB’s point of view is deemed more ‘newsworthy’ than that of The Foreign Secretary – whose quotes appear after GB’s.

    The article states that Brown “resigned as PM after losing the election in May” – but it seems this fact is yet to fully sink in at the BBC.

    Clearly making GB appear kool and compassionate is more important to the BBC than what’s happening in Burma.


  13. Martin says:

    So ITV make Woolas story 2 (behind the 7/7 inquiry) and talk of him being ‘disgraced’

    Sometimes I think the BBC is on a different planet.


  14. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Another BBC story about a failing housing company, another BBC failure to mention Gordon Brown’s PFIs.  On the News Channel just now there was a story about some construction company that’s going into administration.  Apparently it was considered a success story until recently, as its business went up to over £300 million untl the credit crisis.

    Naturally, this company – Rock? – made the bulk of their money doing public housing.  Now that the nasty Tories have gone into austerity mode, there’s no more billing for them.  Cue the violins for the bit about how not enough public sector housing is going to be built.

    Completely missing from the BBC’s reporting:  Chancellor Gordon Brown shifted all PFI expenditure off the books to make the national debt look better much better than it really was.  This was a major symptom of his profligacy and one of the methods he used which enabled him to get away with spending the country into the toilet.  Yet not a single mention of Gordon Brown or the fact that this company’s success was essentially artificially constructed all those years, taking in money the government didn’t actually have.  At your expense.  The company should have gone under years ago, if not for Mr. Brown putting your grandchildren into debt in order to prop up an industry.


  15. Phillip Law says:

    Just a thought, but I have realised that, like the humans being harvested for electricity in The Matrix all the government wants is to have a pliant populace in order to harvest as much money as they can. Perhaps we should halt the problem at source.


  16. Martin says:

    Richard dung beatle brain Bacon challenged a caller this afternoon about GWB who stated that things started to fall apart under Clinton. Bacon of course wasn’t buying it.

    So perhaps dung brain should remember the following

    1. The bad loans policy was accelerted under the Clinton regime (Barney Frank and co) to allow people who couldn’t afford the loans to buy houses they could never pay back.

    2. Clinton didn’t have to pick up the pieces of the dot.com bubble busting (he was only President for a few months after it happened)

    3. Clinton didn’t have to deal with the mess of 9/11


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      Why is Bacon discussing US economics and Presidents anyway?  The BBC is so utterly obsessed with the US it’s ridiculous.


      • Martin says:

        They were slagging off GWB because of his memoirs coming out.


        • David Preiser (USA) says:

          Ah, of course.  I forgot about that.  It gives the Beeboids yet another opportunity to relive the past and act like Bush and Labour are both still in power.

    Biased BBC sleepwalks into BBC Lib loving EU superstate.

    Sorry but its true.

    and this is NO Conservative government that is allowing it.

    The assurance by many on this very site, Cameron is only saying that, wait till he gets into power, he is just lying for BBC cdonsumption, then he will hammer them, pure folly. He has left conservatism for liberalism and is taking many with him. He is more at home with Clegg than many from his own party.

    Massive cuts in the most important things to the nation, unthinkable for a conservative:
    Defence, even forcing us to kowtow to the French something we have NEVER put up with before, mass redunduncies for troops,
    Cuts to prisons, 4 are to close none to open, let the criminals out and run free.
    Cuts to police forces, thousands of police officers jobs to go

    But only a freeze to the bloated BBC, and no one can see the disgrace of it, they even think they are hard done by.

    And the courts insisting on prisoners getting the vote.
    There is a parliamentary statute forbidding this, but the EU overrules us.

    Now an MP, however odious (and boy is he) is to be removed for pre election “lying” by the courts. You are joking right, only one MP a liar. This will lead to huge numbers of challenges to MPs.

    and ultimately our courts are not soverieign, that will no doubt go to Europe too.

    The EU and its minions the BBC will be rubbing their hands in glee.

    And you are celebrating it!!

    Think I’m making it up, check out Edward Leigh about it, he can see this for what it is.

    Open your eyes and wake up, the liberal government is taking us to EU hell and we won’t be able to come back.

    For Islam Not BBC (INBBC)’s Mr Hardy:

    – there are no outbreaks of Islamic jihad, only of ‘Islamophobia’!


    “This year’s anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by al-Qaeda on New York and Washington was overshadowed by an ugly outburst of Islamophobia.”

    Hardy does not refer to the constant murderous Islamic jihad killings which continue on a global scale!

    He writes like the Obama apologist he is.

    The  recently Islamic invented word of ‘Islamophobia’ is in Hardy’s dictionary, but ‘ISLAMIC JIHAD’ isn’t.

    Somewhere, a Beeboid’s head just exploded:

    With Focus on Economy, GOP Gains Traction Among Gay Voters

    The Republican Party drew more gay voters in Tuesday’s midterm elections than it has in 10 years, according to Fox News national exit polls.

    The data shows that 31 percent of self-identified gays voted for the GOP, an uptick from 19 percent in 2008 and 24 percent in 2006 and 2004.

    The 12-point uptick could be a reflection of the gay community’s disappointment in President Obama’s record on gay rights. While Obama says he supports ending the ban on gays openly serving in the military, his administration is challenging attempts by a federal judge to impose an end to the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.


  20. Pounce says:

    It seems that the bBC’s sister TV outlet (the Islam Channel) has had its hands slapped for promoting what the bBC does all the time. Yet the bBC hasn’t bothered its arse reporting this fact. 

    Islam Channel censured by Ofcom
    Programmes on the London-based broadcaster had advocated marital rape and violence against women

    Ofcom has ruled that Islam Channel, a London-based broadcaster, broke the broadcasting code for advocating marital rape, violence against women and describing women who wore perfume outside of the home as “prostitutes”.Five programmes broadcast on the satellite TV channel were ruled to be in breach of broadcasting guidelines, the media regulator said today. Ofcom launched its investigation into the programmes, which aired in 2008 and 2009, following a report by the Quilliam thinktank that was published in March.
    In a programme first broadcast in April last year, Ofcom ruled that the Islam Channel host Nazreen Nawaz condoned marital rape when she said: “And really the idea that a woman cannot refuse her husband’s relations this is not strange to a Muslim because it is part of maintaining that strong marriage. But it shouldn’t be such a big problem where the man feels he has to force himself upon the woman.

    The woman at the centre of all of this is somebody whom the bBC has no problem bringing to the rest of us unclean people in which to promote how Islam protects the rights of non-muslims.  Yet the bBC for some reason hasn’t got round to informing us all how ugly this woman really is.

    I wonder why?

    The Food Programme very special. Almost unnoticed.

    As ever, unbelievably depressing to listen too, and NEVER about the pleasures of the table.  It has been presented since the days of Marconi by a woman so posh and patronising she makes the grisly Joan Bakewell sound like Kathy Burke.

    Today one had to endure this creatures hibernian-edwaardian vowels delivering a sermon on “disappearing food tribes” and the preservation of “indigenous food cultures” from some absurd international conference in Canada I think.

    Nothing of any interest except to the participants was broadcast. The only food stuff mentioned was Wild Rice grown on the shores of one of the great lakes partly a pretext for an attack on evil American agribusiness, and some pretentious wibbling about it tasting of lakeshore mud.  Various other (suspciously well spoken) indigenes were interviewed as if they were Maoris being presented to Queen Victoria and encouraged to plug the BBCs remorseless bio-diversity and global warming agenda.

    This sanctimonious, hypocritical, stupid, lavishly pointless drivel was a compressed masterclass on all the underlying problems of this increasingly ludicrous organisation – it deserves a wider audience.

    I think it might just be the worst thing they broadcast.

    Grief counseling after the wipeout

    A staffer for a congressional Democrat who came up short on Tuesday reports that a team of about five people stopped by their offices this morning to talk about payroll, benefits, writing a résumé, and so forth, with staffers who are now job hunting.

    But one of the staffers was described as a “counselor” to help with the emotional aspect of the loss — and a section in the packet each staffer was given dealt with the stages of grief (for instance, Stage One being anger, and so on.

    Dame Nikki playing a blinder this morning.  Theresa Villiers on to talk about government transport policy, started by talking about the mess they had inherited from the previous administration.

    ‘Oh I see’, jumped in The Dame, sarcasm dripping from every pore.

    So when Nulabour ministers came in to the BBC, after say 12 years in power, and blaming the Tories for everything, anyone remember The Dame jumping in with ‘Oh I see, and dripping sarcasm from every pore.

    (Rhetorical question, no need for question mark).

    On a roll The Dame; out on strike last week because we few, we happy few, we band of brothers*, we net contributors to The Exchequer, should carry on funding her lifestyle not just up to her retirement but right up to the grave (and beyond of if Mrs Dame post-deceases him).

    Like I say, on a roll.  Perhaps a peerage awaits The Dame on Mark Byford’s Resignation Honours List.

  29. George R says:

     INBBC’s G. Hewitt gets as far as talking about the problems to German society of Muslim immigrants and their failure to ‘integrate’;  Hewitt refers to Sarrrazin’s demand for a halt to further Islamic immigration into Germany. That translates into a typical INBBC headline which censors out the word ‘Muslim’:

    “Germans argue over” [Muslim] “‘failure to integrate'”


    Of course, INBBC avoids that issue nearer home. We don’t get:

    “British argue over Muslim ‘failure to integrate'”,

    and we don’t get expositions of the case to halt all Muslim immigration into Britain.

    Nice House of Commons Early Day Motion tabled yesterday.  Maybe we should invite our MPs to sign it:


    Halfon, Robert <!– Motion Text Display –>

    That this House believes that the recent BBC strike caused significant inconvenience for licence fee-payers; notes that licence fee-payers had no say over the strike action; concludes therefore that the case is stronger than ever for the BBC licence fee to be democratised allowing ordinary people who pay the licence fee to have a vote on BBC affairs, to elect the BBC Board and Chairman, agree the annual Report and have some say over programme making; further concludes that licence fee-payers should also approve the level of BBC salaries and pensions, especially those of the BBC’s highly-paid executives and celebrities; further notes that administration costs could be kept low if licence fee-payers voted via the Internet with a special personal identification number; concludes that the BBC cannot continue without genuine public consultation, when other public institutions are becoming accountable and transparent; and therefore calls on the Government to put power in the hands of licence fee-payers and to give them the freedom to choose the BBC they want.

    Anyone catch the 0900 slot on Radio 4 this am? This curious re-run provided an instructive insight into the way our National Broadcaster (sic) deals with religion generally, and Islam and Christianity in particular.

    The premise of the programe was quite interesting: it featured identical twin daughters, both impeccably English middle class, one of them a practising Christian and the other  a devout Muslim. 

    So what was the point of this programme? Well, I always feel that you can discern the true intent of Beeboid propaganda by the payoff line. In this case, the final word, complete with a rhapsodic hymn to Allah, went to the Muzzie. And the message: well, the UK is mutlicultural and so Muslims have just as much right as Christians and loads of Brits are “reverting” to Islam and one hopes in these Islamophobic times that Pakistabni-English children will be fully respected as being British… and so on (perhaps some helpful Beeboid will provide  a transcript?).

    In other words, the same old  Beeboid meme – we are now “multicultural” and very, very pro-Muslim. And in THE prime time slot for the day. And a re-run???! Why??? Who makes these decisions? Presumably the Muslim BBC head of Religion has a strong personality, and much influence.

    But for me this programme typifies the casually abusive BBC approach to Christianity. Whenever a practising Christian is featured, there is always, but ALWAYS, a giant, nasty “but”. In today’s case, the “but” was Islamic – a bulls eye for the BBC!

    I am sure, in their myopic way, the 9736309746 nice public school/Oxbridge boys and girls who produced this show felt they were absolutely fair and true to the standards of the BBC. And I guess they were. It is precisely what we expect from this irrelevant, arrogant and treacherous organisation.

    The bBC and how it rewrites news headlines in which to suit it political agenda.

    Cricketer retires after threats
    Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider retires from international cricket after reportedly receiving death threats.

    According to the bBC he has simply retired from International cricket because of threats and travelled to London.

    Here is how the leftwing Guardian reports the same story;
    Zulqarnain Haider seeks British asylum after match-fixing threats
    The Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider plans to seek political asylum in Britain after fleeing the team amid alleged threats for defying a match-fixing conspiracy.Haider arrived in London yesterday and in an interview broadcast by Pakistan’s Geo television network today said he had discussed his status with immigration officials and “according to their rules, I will have to follow this procedure”. He added: “I understand there is a rule in Britain that if you are right and if you are not a criminal, then they always protect you.”

    For some reason the bBC doesn’t want you to know that yet another Pakistani Muslim seeks refuge in the UK.


    • Guest Who says:

    Note the tone.

    “And one muslim…” so its not muslims doing it then obviously.

    They question France’s tradition of asylum, wait a punch line must be coming.

    France wants to extend assylum to Christian minorities in all muslim countries (lets face it there are few where they are not actively persecuted that much is true).

    The idea has attracted criticism – yes mostly from the bBC.

    Note the implication the US has led to the exodus of Iraqi Christians and the bombers are anonymous (I wonder which religion they were from).

    Hands up those that think this bBC article would be positive instead if it were loads of muslims being allowed into France (there are a lot already there) rather than Christians.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/politics/ – Deputy leader Harriet Harman faced a call to quit at a meeting of Labour MPs in mutinous mood over her disowning of Phil Woolas, the BBC learns.

    The BBC ‘has learned’ this, has it? And how did that happen?

    Maybe at the same time as the top of the hour main story news I just heard, where unique and unchallenged voice was given to a Labour MP to claim to the British Public he is supposed to represent that lying through your teeth and getting nailed for it is not something for the courts, and ‘the British public would understand’ if it all got quietly sorted later on and swept under the carpet. Like usual.

    Well, matey, this member of the British public understands that, with such attitudes, you and your cabal of crooks should be in the nick rather than sucking an MP’s salary on the taxpayer’s teat, and instead of being complicit in providing PR for your apology for corruption, the £3.6B national broadcaster should be finding you and any like-minded crooks out and calling you on it.

    Hat tip to guest who et al, who keep cheering on the sidelines

    A Conservative government would have priorities, they would not sell the current and future generations down the river. This is no Conservative government, it is a Liberal government.

    Important members of the current government include MPs who specifically gave their written categoric assurance that tuition fees would not only not go up under them but that they would go down.

    Students intend to carry out their threat to get Clegg and Co removed from office, removed as MPs and barred for 3 years as proven liars whose lies directly affected the results fo the said election, they will be quoting seats where the number of students outweigh the Liberal majority (e.g. most of them) and who claimed they would do what their opponents would not.

    Meanwhile the old lags will get their vote, roughshod over UK sovereignty, because Europe says so. Cameron and his liberal government accept it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile we let the French dictate our defence policy and rely on them above all others. Cameron and his liberal government accept it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile we allow the EU budget to rise and our contributions to it, despite asurances that would not happen. Cameron and his liberal government accept it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile the UKBA admits immigrants are coming in increasing numbers and they are powerless as their numbers are set to be cut by 5,000 and 20% of their budget. Cameron and his liberal government accept it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile we will close 4 prisons and let past, present and future criminals on to the streets. Vote inside, vote outside. Cameron and his liberal government accept it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile a joke “freeze” only is put on the bBC licence fee, putting them above the courts, prisons, border agency, police and defence. Cameron and his liberal government accepts it. The bBC cheers.

    Meanwhile Woolas will appeal up to Europe if need be. where he will win. Cameron and his liberal government will accept it. The bBC cheers.

    And you won’t dare say anything controversial in future elections for fear of having your election overturned by the courts.

    So rule by court and Europe begins, bye bye UK democracy, Cameron and his liberal government will accept it. The bBC cheers…

    So what’s the BIGGEST political story? I’d say Phil Woolas, not only the fact this slimy little shit tried to do the usual Alistair Campbell technique of smearing opponents, but the fact that Red Ed employed him in the shadow cabinet. 
    Yet where is the BBC on this story? Now we find out there is a REAL split in the Liebour party over Woolas, yet the BBC are STILL ignoring this story. 
    Come on you BBC wankers, where is Michael Prick? When it’s allegations about Tory splits the little shit is always sniffing around. 
    Oh no the BBC are banging on about Cameron and ‘uman rites’ in China. 
    Shut up you BBC shits, you and your creepy leftist mong bum chums buy thousands of pounds of Apple crap made in slave labour camps in China.


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      Both Tim and Sophie on the News Channel pointed out to the different Labour MPs they were each interviewing that Woolas was found guilty.  There have been a few segments on this, all of them giving plenty of air time to Labourites saying Woolas should not be suspended indefinitely and we should never trust judges because people are often found innocent on appeal.

      The BBC is admitting there was a near mutiny against Harriet Harman (Sophie even asked one of the Labour MPs if there was a “split”, although that was easily dodged), but it’s mostly because the Labour mouthpieces they keep talking to sound really angry and were pretty clear about bashing Harman.  I don’t know if there’s a split as much as there is anger at her grandstanding.


      • Martin says:

        But also David what about Red Ed’s judgement giving Woolas a job? The BBC bang on about Cameron’s judgement giving Coulson a job (even though Coulson had resigned from the NOTW and had never personally been accused or charged with anything and Cameron said he was giving ihm a second chance, something clearly leftists don’t believe in) but ignore Red Ed’s judgement knowing that this story was likely to flare up.


        • prpw says:

          Yes if Woolas had been a member of the coalition government the BBC would have been highlighting each new development in the story across all its programming for the best part of a week 


        • David Preiser (USA) says:

          Yes, fair point. I’m sure the excuse is that Miliband Minor didn’t know about Woolas’ behavior (if you believe that one), but Cameron knew about Coulson’s.

    The bBC, its continuing mission to absolve Islam of any crimes and half the story.
    Faith healer ‘died under torture’ 
    A faith healer found dead in Bedfordshire had been stabbed and beaten and salt rubbed in his wounds, a jury has heard.The body of Alfusaine Jabbi, 22, was found in Luton’s Leagrave park in 2006.Rubina Maroof, 30, who lived in Pembroke Avenue, Luton, at the time of Mr Jabbi’s death, denies murder and conspiracy to imprison Mr Jabbi.

    The thing about the above story is how the whole sorry tale revolves around Islam. The victim was an Islamic faith healer, the people who murdered him were Muslims and after they tortured and murdered him they buggered off to Islamic Pakistan. Why doesn’t the bBC mention those facts. Its not as if they aren’t relevant to the story. To the contrary the whole sorry tale is based around the Islamic faith.

    Is it because if they started telling the truth about Islam in the Uk people would question the bBC line that Islam can only be a religion of peace?


  41. Martin says:

    BBC twat on News 24 giving a Liebour mong an easy ride over Woolas. “Judges get decisions wrong” says’ Liebour mong, hmm, so why is it Liebour and the BBC want Andy Coulson hung when the guy hasn’t been charged with anything or been found guilty of anything?


  42. NotaSheep says:

    I note that the BBC are not covering the more salacious aspects of Kristian Digby’s death. I seem to remember that they were less restrained about the circumstances regarding the death of Stephen Milligan – is that because Stephen Milligan was a Conservative MP and Kristian Digby a BBC presenter?


    • George R says:

      BBC-NUJ’s jokey Peter Allen on Radio 5 a few minutes ago had on two Labour MPs to discuss the Woolas lies.

      Obviously, this is regarded as an internal affair for the Labour Party, aided by BBC-NUJ, to be decided on by themselves only, but also for the British people!

      One of the Labour MPs, Hoey, keep saying how she spoke for ALL MPs! And the other Labour MP was introduced by Allen as a ‘mate’ of Woolas.

      BBC-NUJ-Labour ‘democracy’ in action.


  43. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Here’s some US news that’s very relevant to life in the UK, and something which the BBC really ought to be reporting.  It’s also especially relevant to today’s BBC coverage of the President’s attempts to pander to….sorry….to improve relations with Mohammedan Indonesia.  The BBC knows that’s important because they report on how important He says it is.

    (I’m glad that the BBC chose to be impartial in the bit where they don’t make an editorial remark about how criticizing Israel here is pandering, and that it’s not too cool to openly criticize one ally while trying to woo a potential one.  That’s the kind of thing that is best left behind closed doors.  But nobody other than Justin Webb has accused this President of being a brilliant diplomat.)

    One result from last week’s election which got ignored in all the fuss over the failures, racism, and extremism of the Tea Party movement was the overwhelming approval of a ballot initiative in Oklahoma to prevent judges from considering either Shariah or “International Law” when deciding cases.  It’s no secret that there’s a big concern about parts of Sharia being implemented into or at least accomodated by British law, so one would think the BBC might see this as US news which is actually relevant to the British public, as opposed to what dress Michelle Obama is wearing today, or a fire on a cruise ship which harmed no one.

    I’m sure everyone remembers the noise when the ArchBeard of Canterbury said something about how it was “unavoidable” that Shariah would become intertwined with British law.  So why isn’t the BBC reporting this now?

    The initiative was approved by 70% of voters.  The key issue here is that, as it was about both international and Islamic law, this is about sovereignty more than anything else.  Naturally, terrorist-supporting CAIR sued and won a temporary injunction blocking the measure – which is actually a new amendment to the State Constitution.  And that only happened because after the election the state is in between attorneys general, so CAIR’s suit fell through the cracks and won because there was nobody in office to respond to it in time.  Very clever.

    But why isn’t the BBC reporting this at all?  Here’s the perfect opportunity for them to bash yet another group of United Statesians as bigots and Islamophobes and isolationists. They probably don’t even know about it, so focused are they on the handful of things they want to use to build that rapport for you with the US.


    • Buggy says:

      My guess is that it’s not being reported because the proposition was thrown out.

      If Oklahoma had committed cultural hari-kiri by passing the thing, rest assured we’d have plenty coverage along the lines of:

      “America grows up a bit more” (with refences to the continuing infantilism of GOP voters)

      “How America shows us the way again”  (i.e. This country hasn’t the courage to elect a black PM yet, but maybe we could be first to sign up to sharia law: Take that USA !)

      “Is America a more tolerant society than us ?” (Answer: YUP ! Bad UK ! Very Bad ! )


  44. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Robert Peston is still pumping up China’s business.  Wow, how great, China is going to focus on increasing domestic consumption of the stuff they produce, which means there’s an opportunity for British goods as well.

    My question is this:  If so many millions of Chinese are “no longer dirt poor”, and China’s wonderful state-controlled economy has produced this huge middle class and all those wealthy consumers, why hasn’t domestic consumption been absolutely massive?  If everything was as great as these experts always say it is, why would the government even need to work hard to stimulate consumer growth?

    Could there be any relevance to something the BBC has never reported:  China’s real estate bubble. There’s enough empty real estate in China to house more than half the US population.  Where are all those big spenders, Robert?

    Maybe he’s just doing this to suck up to Cameron so he start getting those scoops he used to get from the previous Government.


    • Martin says:

      More like the BBC want a discount on all those Apple products they so love that get churned out of the China sweat shops.

      Funny that the leftists twats don’t seem to mind ‘globalisation’ or bother about CO2 footprint when they’re hyping up the latest piece of Apple crap. Oh nor the death rates in the factories in China, but hey let’s talk about nasty George Bush waterboarding scum, funny that when talking about Khalid Sheikh Mohammad Dame Nikki Campbell forgot to mention this shit admitted to hacking off the head of Daniel Pearl the journalist.

      You know I personally would have shoved the Muslim twats head into a bucket of water and kept it there, stuff waterboarding.


  45. Martin says:

    Wow 6PM news and Phil Woolas STILL doesn’t get a mention.


  46. Martin says:

    Anyone who doesn’t think the BBC biased should just check out the 6PM news. Not a mention of the split in the Liebour party over shitbag Woolas. 

    Top story, waterboarding. Judging by the beeboid that just topped himself waterboarding looks quite tame.


  47. Dazzler says:

    they ignore the main story and feed us with this shit



  48. Martin says:

    So Toenails attacked Cameron for NOT speaking out on human rights in China. Can anyone provide a link where Toenails attacked the one eyed mong the same way?  
    Oh and when Barry Obama went to China he did comment about human rights.. to a group of students.  
    Note in the article it doesn’t snidely mention (like Toenails just did) that Barry might have a word on the quiet.
