    I noticed that while Sky News reported people taking to the streets to protect property in Southall, Eltham and Enfield last night, online the BBC only mention Southall.

    If the events of Eltham and Enfield are somewhere online, the BBC have hidden them well.

      Yes the BBC highlighted the Sikh community in Southall (although theBBC said it was Muslims) nut the camp male beeboid on Radio was sneering at the EDL doing a similar thing in Leicester.

      Its difficult to get an accurate picture I heard somewhere it could have been BBC or LBC (channel hoping) they were calling themselves the Enfield Defence League (its on Facebook -) The BBC said people from all races were defending Enfield. The only voices heard sounded white. I’m not making a comment only reporting what I heard (unlike the BBC).

          ROBERT BROWN; The police, ordered by the leftist and common purposed ACPO regard any display of white people preparing to defend themselves and others lives and properties as a grave risk to order, above and beyond any rioting by blacks. Cameron has to sack every Chief Constable in the land along with the indoctrinated senior officers below them, they are not fit for purpose. Start promoting tough no nonsense sergeants up, guys who do not have sociology degrees and so on, then perhaps we’ll get proper coppers like Sir Robert Mark was [remember him, tough guy] and give the bad guys hell.

    Is Rowan Williams hiding behind Camilla Batmanghedghli these days?
    It`s just that I don`t see why an exotic, childless, Iranian boarder at Sherborne School for Gels gets pushed around the BBCs Green Rooms in a “liberated”shopping trolley whilst the old Wicca Warrior seems content to count the sandbags in Lambeth Palace until the Sikhs and Turks have cleared a safe path for him to Canterbury or wherever he`d prefer to be!
    When Toynbee goes silent at such times-at least we KNOW she`s in the Tuscany Troubador Lounge and safe to phone in her Wolfie Smiff thoughts.

      Very true. I was thinking about this yesterday. The areas with the highest unemployment rates in London are those right beside the Olympic Park, where thousands of jobs were supposed to go to local residents but in fact went to Eastern Europeans. The 2nd/3rd generation immigrants that would like to work are those hit the hardest by the new waves of immigration.

      It’d be impossible for the far-left BBC to report this and remain within their strict NUJ guidelines.

    Israel and Iran “In a rare moment of harmony”!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14449675

    1026: BBC Monitoring


    Rioting in Britain is the fault of the government and police, Iranian newspaper Resalat reports. In an editorial on “Cameron’s iron fist”, the paper says the unrest is the consequence of the UK government’s “human rights violations”. In a rare moment of harmony, press in both Israel and Iran cite immigration as one of the reasons for unrest in the UK. Editorials in Iran’s Khorasan newspaper and Israel’s Yisrael Hayom both speculate that tensions in multicultural communities may be the cause. “All those who felt disadvantaged and full of hatred are now running wild,” the Israeli paper says.

      Presumably all those Ms Bossys( married?…no way!) and little Miss Sads from Womans Hour are all tooling up and getting on the riot gear to defend us all tonight…just like those sexist useless men posturing and being oh-so macho in the emergency services!
      I for one see Jenni Murray as a Green Goddess just right to clear the streets…just as we clear the airwaves when she rolls up on the double decker chais longue from Barnsley!

    There’s something very disturbing how the bBC which went all overboard in the killing of Mark Duggen which in a way helped fan the flames currently burning down Britain has remained very silent on the murders (And near murders) which have been committed by their so called peaceful protesters.
    Man shot dead in Croydon….

    3 Muslims murdered in Birmingham by Blacks and yet in the very small article on the subject the bbC leave out the colour of the murderers as well as the faith of those who were killed.

    The Daily Mirror has as its centre spread the man put in hospital for trying to put a fire out started by thugs again by Black thugs

    Strange how the bbC appears to have some sort of pecking order when it comes to thugs and murderers

        This is what has freaked the BBC.

        “The mood has turned ugly in some parts of Birmingham. We were filming until the early hours of the morning and what we witnessed is deeply concerning. There is a real fear that the events of last night have stirred racial tensions in this city between some Asian and black communities. There is talk of retaliation and further violence.

        When looters went on the rampage on Monday night, dozens of local businesses were attacked. Family businesses that had taken years to establish were ransacked in hours. Yesterday, many of the owners told me they weren’t going to allow it to happen again.
        In areas like the Soho Road in Handsworth, they started closing early. “We don’t trust the police to be able to look after us,” one man said. “So we’re going to do it ourselves.

        At least Channel 4 felt able to cover the story.

      Interesting theories. I have heard quite a few reasons for the ‘protests’ in recent days.

      The ‘protestors’ are ‘protesting’ because (a) they have been inspired by the uprisings in Egypt, Syria, Libya etc., (b) they are angry about tuition fees, (c) they are furious about government cuts, (d) they are raging against the withdrawal of EMA.

      Check derivation.

      Studies suggest about 20,000 hardcore gang members concentrated in the main connurbations,  with about 50,000 associates.

      There is also a considerable level of opportunism given the police disarray plus deliberate anarchist, hard left extremist action under the cover of the confusion.

    We keephearing about the lack of role models in the Caribbean “community”.

    But the “community” has plenty of role models.   Criminals like Duggan,  gang leaders,  gangsta rappers.

    We don’t so much need new role models as getting rid of thew present role models.   How that happens without much fiercer police action,  much stronger CPS and court results I don’t know.

    But zero-tolerance policing would not be a bad start.   And zero tolerance in our schools.

    And zero tolerance in allowing benefit handouts to people who do not want to work.

      Jock…you say A 31-year-old school teacher. I’d be interrested to see how she is dealt with by her education department. She’ll probably be invited to be a member of the Question Time audience. 

      These riots are laying bear something deeply wrong with Britain. Its deeper than race and politicsd.  I have a friend, a lawyer, who deals in the court system with the “white underclass”. She tells me she has three generations of one family (grandfather 60, father 40 and son 19) none of whom have ever worked and have no intention of ever working but all claim “jobseekers” allowance.

      Two points (a) why are they allowed to get away with it? (b) “jobseekers”? How we hide behind this wordplay? These people are scroungers, playing the system and laughing all the way to draw our money to buy their flat screen TVs – assuming they haven’t alreay nicked one from a burning shop. By refusing to say that out loud the authorities, the media and politicians are compliant in their crimes.

      Sadly, I don’t see anything happening politically after all this trouble. The will just isn’t there. Like the Mods and Rockers duking it out on Brighton Beach in the 1960s it will become a distant memory and the BBC will melt back into Orwellian news speak. I can see the 25th anniversary of the riots being marked by a nostalgic look at the week hosted by Nicki Campbell. Cue music…

      The BBC was deliberately reporting about that guy and a kid caught with two t-shirts to as a deliberate rebuttal to the notion that this wasn’t a protest about poverty and lack of services because they’ve been stealing expensive goods.  The BBC producers instructed the reporter to do this to continue their Narrative.  He went on to say that some people weren’t even stealing when they were caught but were merely “trespassing” while carrying a load of goods and hadn’t left the shop, so it was wrong to criminalize them and arrest them for burglary.

      There are strong overtones of racism in Lawrence Auster’s site.  Scroll down a bit to glimpse his piece on the ‘broom possee’.  To my mind gratuitous anti-black comments are made.  
       
      Yesterday I saw BBC24 reportage on a ‘broom possee’.  A smattering of participants were black.  Of the 4 people the BBC interviewed, 3 were black.  This is a bias that seeks to counter negative racial stereotyping of black people.  It’s a bias I’m in favour of.  I regard it as a democratic bias to avert the evil extremism that racism produces.  Unfortunately, the BBC dont dont duly exercise this bias as a democratic one but a left-wing one.  They dont show any bias against left wing extremists, much of their number have such a left-wing bias, and many others ‘get with the programme’.

          Its true that the black people they interviewed were there to help sweep up.  That’s worth emphasising in my opinion.  However, because the BBC do it for a left-wing bias, not a democratic one, we do not conversely get a proper debate on the predominance of black youth involved in the rioting.

          Because of the BBC’s subversive left-wing bias whenever the disproportionate number of black inmates is cited as ‘racism’ the BBC pursue that ‘black propaganda’ line with a vengeance instead of highlighting the clear fact that disproportionate numbers of black people commit disproportionate amounts of crime.  It’s this subversive left-wing bias that directly leads to the riots we see today.

        “It’s a bias I’m in favour of.  I regard it as a democratic bias to avert the evil extremism that racism produces.  Unfortunately, the BBC dont dont duly exercise this bias as a democratic one but a left-wing one.”

        Rubbish, the BBC does both. Black people can avoid being stereotyped by facing up to their problems. Nothing will improve until that happens.

        Chinese and Indian people do not generally have negative stereotypes. Why? Because they don’t provide other people with ammunition in the first place.

          You’re against a bias in favour of democratic values as well as a bias in favour of left-wing propaganda?

          We can have negative stereotypes of all and sundry, including we English.  Surely, people of goodwill want to avoid the basis for negative stereotypes to play into the hands of bigots and extremists?

    Talking of the Left, they’re mixed up in the trouble & strife. I’ve just reviewed video clips taken Mon. night/Tues. morning during the trouble in my own area of north London. Aside from the pterodactyl chirrup of the feral scrotes addicted to mayhem, I heard the sneering, exaggerated mockney voice of one of those Dave Spart/Wolfie Smith types: the ‘working class intellectual’, a little reticent about his background. He obviously saw himself as some sort of clued-up political officer, but just sounded like another SWP self-loathing delusional berk who wants to see Britain burn, & that’s about it. Unless he wants a scrote/ganbanger parliament. I’ll say this for the yobs, they completely ignored him. He’d probably done less work in his life than even they had. Mind you, all those arrested tested positive for class A drugs. Presumably, when you’re up on charlie you don’t want some knobhead rabbiting on about the Communist Manifesto – you’d rather be torching Mothercare.
    Our local coppers were excellent, holding the line & winning back ground, without shields/body armour, until the riot squad arrived. Brave, committed, rank & file men & women. Admirable. Shame about their top brass.
    I did see Gove (on Newsnight) give Harriet, Our Maid of Frankfurt, a going over regarding New Labour’s 13 year fiasco – she looked a little stunned, as if she was hoping nobody was going to mention it. But it’s her bad luck that millions of people will never forget it. Lyn Costello, Mothers Against Murder & Aggression, was excellent & cut through the disingenuous waffle of the ‘rapper’ & the shifty student. A very sober, compelling performer.
    By the way, where is Paxo? Has he been nicked breaking into toffs’ shops in Jermyn Street? He could certainly complain he’s been ‘marginalised’. From reality. And it’s been a long time.

    News at 1pm. Have the BBC gone mad? The one with glasses desperately tryng to rubbish Cameron ( good speech outside No 10 by the way) .Tying to set Boris and Cameron against each other. And seizing on Orde’s doubts about the efficacy of water cannon and plastic bullets to suggest Cameron is engaged in gesture politics.
    It’s about morale idiots. Water cannon send a message to the scum that we are going to hurt them and to us peasants that we are fighting back and using maximum force.
    I forgot the BBC doesn’t do morale. So lower middle class unless it is about low public sector morale because of vile Tory cuts cuts .
    They are finished. The whole rotten liberal edifice is revealed for what it always was – an unreal student pipe dream.

        The German liberal elite is as up its ‘vierbuchstaben’ as its UK counterpart. The reporting is dire over here. Couldn’t happen here nonsense.

        Süddeutsche is a Guardian equivalent.

        Meanwhile in leafy Hamburg:

        Hamburg police on Tuesday were searching for suspected left-wing arsonists who destroyed 10 parked vehicles early in the morning, as part of a continuing car-burning spree in the northern German port city.

         
        The fires in the Flottbek district spurred a search for the arsonists that included more than 20 patrol cars, but officers reported no trace of the perpetrators so far.

        On the previous night unknown culprits lit six other vehicles on fire in the city’s Harvestehude district. There fire fighters were able to save a nearby apartment building and a carport from the flames.

        In the last year, about 150 cars have been burned in Hamburg, many attributed to left-wing extremists and anarchists.

        The daily Bild reported that the number of politically motivated offences in Germany had soared to its highest level since record began.
        Citing an Interior Ministry report, the paper said there were 33,917 politically motivated crimes committed in 2010. Many of these include car burnings in Hamburg and Berlin.”

        Left Politicians mouthed it can’t happen here.

        But the Chief of Hamburg Police said it could.

      I’m loving the irony of how the BBC has to tell you that the absence of a traditional nuclear family structure –  supposedly something only stuffy old moralist right-wing Christians want – is partly to blame.

      Classic.


      The main task so far has been to cover the first Ws of good-old fashioned news reporting. The who, what, where and whens of the story.

      Except they were a bit shy about the “who” for quite some time and have been spouting all kinds of drivel about “what” exactly has been going on.  Just today some dopey Beeboid outside a courthouse was saying how unfortunate it was that people who were merely trespassing with an armful of goods (hadn’t left the shop yet, you see, so no theft) were wrongly nicked for burglary, and that otherwise innocent people would now possible be saddled with a criminal conviction which would affect their careers.  Nice twisted priorities there.

      This is what our audiences have been turning to us for in droves with some of the highest ever audiences for our website, TV and radio coverage – and record audiences for instance for the Live page coverage. 

      Once again we see that, in the minds of Beeboids, ratings equals quality journalism and value for the license fee. 

      And then the woman just lies outright about their insistence on calling them “protests”.  They didn’t change to “riots” for a couple days at least.  Even that is a controversial term in one sense: if it’s designated a “riot”, the government will have to pay for damages, but if it’s only public disorder or whatever, then it’s up to the insurance and the burden is wholly placed on the victims.

      This is where our specialists come in – Nick Robinson, Mark Easton, Clive Coleman, Emma Simpson to name a few – as well as our London and UK-wide correspondents who will continue to report on the events and aftermath.

      This is where the BBC Narrative editors come in to tell you what to think, how to interpret the story.  Does this inspire confidence in anyone?

The vast, vast majority of people will watch that and say “Good job, coppers” but what do the opinions of the vast majority of people matter when the delicate sensibilities of the left-liberal intelligentsia are upset?

    London riots: ‘Bleeding, I called 999. A tired man told me to go home’

    (by Andrew Gilligan)

    [Excerpt]:

    “…in London, the geography of fear is particularly potent.
    Unlike Los Angeles or Paris, the riots are not happening in ghettos where nobody goes. They are happening amid the organic gastropubs and latte bars. Alongside poverty, inner London is full of the sort of middle-class progressives who agree with Ken Livingstone that the rioters ‘feel no one at the top of society, in government or City Hall, cares about them or speaks for them’. ”

    The write up in the daily Mail explains that the Police had been chasing these thugs for over 10 minutes, this is clearly seen in their video clip which shows them being directed towards the gang. However what really takes apart the bbc view of unwarrented police violence is how in the Daily Mail Video a man also with a bike is allowed to continue on his way.

      …”the BBC is doing its “London Calling” impression”….

      Hang on a sec CJ, my agent hasn’t mention this to me. The only persons authorised to make impressions of me is my dentist and Madame Tussauds.

      I may have to think of changing me moniker.
      It’s doing nothing for house prices here

        Oops!
        Had in mind St Joseph of Strummer and the Eurovision, but realise that there is only one London Calling worth the mention!
        Sorry sir for any misunderstanding!

    Peter Allen on R5L Drive giving the Home Secretary Theresa May a hard time.  And a good job too.  Talk about over-promoted!

      She’s a dozy cow promoted into her position on account of owning a set of tits, just like Harman and five bellies Smiff was.

        Whatever you might say about Harman, she’s got a brain.  Next to no morality, but a brain yes.

    A lot of praise on BBC for various comminities uniting to protect themselves.

    if a lot of white people got together for protection the BBC would call them dangerous vigilanties.

    The bBC, how it champions Pakistan while hating India.
    Pakistan pilot’s ‘remorse’ for 1965 shooting down
    A Pakistani fighter pilot who shot down an Indian civilian aircraft more than four decades ago has written to the family of the dead Indian pilot. In his email, Qais Hussain said he was sorry for the loss of precious lives during the incident and was acting under orders from his superiors.
    Remorse from a Pakistani well so you’d think from the bBC headline, well here is that so called remorse as explained further on:
    “It’s not a apology, it’s a condolence. I did not do anything wrong. I did what I was ordered to do in the line of duty.
    OH that’s ok then, but seeing as this about something whith happened during the 1965 war between the two countries the bBC has to add this:
    India says it won the 1965 war after five months of fighting

    And here is how the bBC reported on that war in an article about the rise of the Pakistani armed forces:

    But the defeat in the 1965 war led to the army’s invincibility being challenged by an increasingly vocal opposition.

    Only the bBC can find an apology out of somebody who isn’t apologising and find a victory when actually it was a defeat.

      A very short programme is it?

      Population of Jamaica 2.6m
      Number of people of Jamaican origin living in the UK 800,000
      Ah yes, that would be London Transport  recruitment in the 50’s.

    Give it a few years and I have little doubt this anarchic scum will be perceived by the Beeb as urban freedom fighters. There will be cosy chats with Sue McGregor on Radio 4’s The Reunion and a tame copper will be wheeled out to confess to “institutionalised racism”.

    By the way has anyone mentioned Enoch Powell?

      Mention Enoch Powell – on the BBC – are you kidding!
      It’s like Fawlty Towers – ‘Don’t mention the war’.
      You’ll only hear it if, like Basil, someone temporarily loses their marbles.
