    So there we are! A BBC report today (www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-27974351) says that educational success in Inner London is, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies, due to “the multi-cultural mix of children attending the schools compared with other areas”. And, according to the report, “specific policies focused on London secondary schools may not be the main reason for this improvement”. Now I understand why Blair allowed unfettered immigration; it was to meet his “education, education, education” priorities.
    So is it going to be Labour (and BBC, Guardian, Islington et al) policy to improve the potential of poor white males by forcing country-wide integration?
    I’m just not quite sure why without supporting evidence they attribute the improvement to multicultural mix rather than special measures introduced. Surely they couldn’t have an agenda?

      Because OFSTED offer extra marks to a school’s score for how multicultural they are. The less white they are, the more points they get, regardless of actual academic achievement.

      There are good schools around the country, in remote areas which are achieving good academic results, but which have been marked down for not being culturally diverse enough. Some of these have taken to having school trips to inner London schools to stare at the coloured kids, in order to increase their own OFSTED scores.

        Yes, the British state institutions, such as OFSTED are, actively enabling the colonisation of British society.
        They are prioritising the privileged position of immigrants, at the cultural expense of the present and next generation of British indigenous people.
        And all under the false, unworthy flag of ‘diversity’, as flown by INBBC.

        Ken, do you have any evidence for that? I agree that it would be wrong for OFSTED to prioritise diversity over academic achievement, but I’ve just had a look at its most recent framework for school inspection and I can find nothing to support what you said.

          Chris – I think Ken was referring to the national annual ‘politically correct’ (biased) state School league tables, (rather than OfSted framework which is often the last resort of a failing school)’ I suspect – or hope. I think OfSted are doing pretty well, (even if years too late in spotting awful (Islamic) schools and even worse school governors priming kids with hate and vengeance.

        According to the headmaster of a Worcester comprehensive, if his school was in Inner London he would receive more than £6million extra funding. Some of these diverse schools have funding that equates to £28K per pupil compared with £4500 per pupil in Worcs.
        See how well the Inner City schools do without funding equivalent to sending a child to Eaton!

    Apparently the information came from SUNA, a Sudanese state news agency which everyone mentions.
    But, of course the BBC has to be different don’t they.

    “A Sudanese woman sentenced to death for abandoning her religious faith has been freed from jail, her lawyer tells the BBC.”
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-27979782

    When you read it, it’s all “has told the BBC”
    Really!! They are so far up their own arses they just don’t get how stupid that sounds.
    I’ve lost track of the number of times the clowns use “the BBC has learnt” or “told the BBC”.
    In the world of BBC hacks, a room full of journalists will just evaporate so that the only person being addressed at a news briefing is said BBC hack.

    The impression the BBC are trying to give here is that Meriam Ibrahim’s lawyer rushed to the phone to give a breathless account to the BBC, of course the truth is that having heard of the release from state media, the BBC rang the lawyer.

      Now I hope this isn’t double posted because my words seemed to get lost mid post (damn computers and I don’t support UKIP so I should be able to use one).

      I have noticed the Beeb’s increasing use of suggestions that they are the only one with a story. My favourite is Miss Bruce saying, ‘the BBC has learnt’, and I think, ‘the BBC has read the press release’. I think it must be orders from on high and the Charter renewal. It is to make us plebs think that the BBC has all these scoops and therefore the most important news source available.

      ‘When you read it, it’s all “has told the BBC”’
      To be fair, there my be the slightest whiff of singed pride still about, as the last time out, having heard of a release from the state (both wrong at the time), the BBC ran a story without checking with the lawyer.
      Noting also TPO’s insightful comment on what the BBC has opted to cut and paste in lieu of reporting.
      But good news for Ms. Ibrahim, somewhat lucky not to be relying on support from the likes of Messrs, Peston, Mason et al, who seem a wee bit more exercised about a jail term for one of ‘them’, vs. a death sentence for one of ‘not them’.
      At best, their journalism of her case appeared mostly guided by ruthless professional objectivity, for some reason.

        These “community leaders” know damn well what is going on. But the are complicit in it by refusing to break it up, refusing to really cooperate with the police and intelligence services. OK, they may deliver the odd sermon arguing against extremism – but do they really attack the “extremists” – and do they really cast any doubt on the many verses of the Koran and hadiths that are used to justify jihadism ? Do they really do anything to defend the US and UK against the more absurd charges that are made against us ?

    Leicester fire deaths: Seven men and teenager found guilty

    ‘Seven men and a teenager have been convicted for their part in a revenge arson attack that killed four people. Shehnila Taufiq, 47, daughter Zainab, 19, and sons Bilal, 17, and Jamal, 15 died in a house fire in Leicester in the early hours of 13 September. Kemo Porter, 19, and Tristan Richards, 23, were found guilty of their murders.’

    No cries of racism? No Islamophobia?

    You wouldn’t know it from the above BBC report but check previous BBC reports and you find the accused ‘men’ were all black.

      Yes Roland same here. I’ll give them a couple more days then fire off another complaint on Thursday for non response. It’s about time the searchlight got shone on rent a mob that the BBc normally just describes as counter demonstrators. Again I’m not sure what the delay will be because you know as well as I that the reply will never actually address the points being made. Perhaps we can co ordinate a response as It would seem logical we will get the same reply in essence.

          Wise caution.
          It’s a risk taken, even if simply sharing a template dismissal without any personal data (yours or BBC reply).
          However, it really shows them up when the exact same GIAR fob-off gets trotted out, especially when it takes them weeks after deadline to even manage a cut & paste.
          And they can react poorly.
          The ‘we notice you..’ Series from here a few years back was both funny and chilling at the level of monitoring and menace from CECUTT for a niche site that no one at the BBC takes seriously.

    R2 and the bottom feeder J vine had a phone in today to discuss the statue in central Bristol erected to commemorate Edward Colston. He made loads of dosh in the 17th century from the slave trade but endowed huge amounts of money to Bristol schools and charities.
    The ‘journalist’ who had tabled the ‘problem’ was a self flagellating twat from Gloucester merely visiting Bristol and he was ‘appalled’ when he came across the statue.
    The suggestion was it should be taken down and destroyed.

      Loads of lefty twats down here in Bristol. The local rag ran a survey & just over half of the people voted against removing his name from the city. Colston Girls School is one of the best non private schools in the city. Colston Hall is our biggest music venue. Lot’s of good things are associated with his name.

      My dentist is in Redland & the nearest bus stop is Blackboy Hill at The top of Whiteladies Road. The leftists hate those road names yet they have nothing to do with the slavery trade. They also petitioned to change those names too. They can’t stop themselves in wanting to eradicate the past they find offensive rather than learn from it.

    Looking at the BBC’s website on a daily basis you’d be forgiven for thinking that we are a Muslim country.

It’d be nice to hear how Christians, Buddhists and Sikhs are doing these days… (apart from those unfortunate enough to live in Muslims countries, of course).

      The BBC recruit journalist from ‘The Guardian’ and Labour recruits its ‘shakers and takers’ from the BBC. BBC staff are free to return back to the BBC ‘swing door’ after an election if they fail to become a Labour MP or given a job in Labour’s new government.
      It’s been done before, too many times… according to Chris Aitkin (former BBC man) in his book ‘CAN WE TRUST THE BBC?
      OTHER ’high profile’ Labour members with links back to the BBC include: Peter Mendleson (Media guru for Tony Blair with closer links to Greg Dyke (from LWT TV). Greg Dyke later become Director General of the BBC), Will Hutton (Guardian journalist to BBC Journalist), Liz Fogan (BBC and Guardian Journalist), Andrew Rawnsley (BBC to New Labour activist), James McNaughtie (Guardian to BBC staff Radio 4), (1997) Lance Price (BBC to New Labour activist), Martin Sixsmith (BBC to New Labour activist), Tom Kelly (BBC to New Labour activist), Ed Richards (BBC to New Labour activist), Bill Bush (BBC to New Labour activist), Catherine Rimmer (BBC to New Labour activist), John Birt (BBC DG to New Labour activist), Don Briad (BBC to New Labour activist), Sarah Hunter (BBC to New Labour activist), Ben Bradshaw, (BBC to New Labour MP 1997), Chris Bryant (BBC to New Labour MP), Celia Barlow (BBC to New Labour MP), James Purnell (BBC to New Labour Gov.

      The role of the BBC Trust seems to be to keep a lid on complaints about the BBC reaching the mainstream media, which in Britain, is best maintained by making sure that the BBC dominates the mainstream media so that widespread complaints about left-wing bias and political and scientific censorship at the BBC, is kept off the BBC, Guardian and the Independent, and therefore not seen as being in the media by the BBC, because it did not appear in any media that anyone at the BBC would read.

      What is called the ‘BBC Bubble’ which means that they would never see that they have lost ‘Public Trust’ until the Government is forced to abolish the Licence Fee, and Whittingdale can be less tactful and more honest with the morons at the BBC who pass as the management, people who would be unemployable in the real world of a meritocracy, and therefore would be employed by the Labour party once the BBC is financed by voluntary payment in the ‘Public Interest‘, as is the morally superior Murdoch free press.

      Adverts are the only down side, but then the BBC is now inundated with its own Licence fee funded adverts, so that no longer is an excuse.

      Perhaps the BBC should drop the “hideously white” Eastenders and produce a new, much more realistically diverse soap based in the Page Hall district of Sheffield. The first of three editions of ‘Police Under Pressure’ was shown on BBC2 yesterday evening. It showed the impossible situation the police find themselves in trying to keep the muslim “community” and the Roma “community” off each other’s throats. This is the reality the BBC should be representing. It was riveting stuff. There was one wonderful, unintentionally hilarious moment when the muslims were shouting “we want our streets back”. Yea right, I know how you feel.

        It is news and is worthy of discussion.
        One can also see why it is ‘close to home’ and worthy of discussion within the profession… and of relevance outside too.
        However, the blanket self-obsession in some quarters is backfiring, as they highlight just what they will focus on or get outraged about or deplore or stage protests and vigils around, and what else… not so much.
        Very real, personal deaths or threats of, vs. selective freedoms to do whatever is fancied, wherever fancied, free of consequence.

    from INBBC headline censored of reference to Islam-

    “Sudan death sentence woman ‘freed'”

      I would say almost definitely “yes” as they believe everyone is born Muslim.

    Newsnight tonight was about the delightful coves heading out to join Isis in order to saw off the heads of those they don’t crucify – unless of course they join their Sunni/Wahhabism view of Islam.

    Apparently Newsnight had to fly in reporters from Afghanistan to create the piece fronting the item. I guess all the BBC reporters in the UK were either busy or unsuitable to create the report.

    There then followed the discussion, where Emily Maitlis chatted to two Muslims and a gentleman from the government. I suppose the indigenous population doesn’t have a view worth hearing.

    The guy from the Muslim Council of GB laughed off any idea that it could be the local Imam who has radicalised the boys in one town, not seeing how ‘one speech’ could move people to violence.

    ‘One speech?’ you thought Emily would point out, ‘you mean week after week of indoctrination!’

    But no she let him quietly go on to blame the ‘illegal Iraq war,’ and the ‘constant demonization of Muslims.’

    So big opportunity for Emily to burst in with ‘well if you stopped blowing us up and people in every country you inhabit, stopped trying to destroy aircrafts full of people, getting your 6 year olds to chant that white women are prostitutes …. Phew, sorry about that, but you know what I mean *mops brow and moves on* …

    So that’s all right then. That explains why Muslims are flying from all over the world to join create barbaric carnage in the Middle East it is all the fault of the British.

      Perhaps we could think positively here? The reality of war changes people. Some may come back as different people. Think what the trenches did to Britain’s post WWI generation.

      Syrian Sunnis are relatively secular and modern. The Jihadis are punching above their weight and the majority of Syrians may be less willing to tolerate an Islamic dictatorship after removing an Alawite dictatorship than we might think.

        I’m almost sure that the majority of Syrians don’t want an Islamic dictatorship, and certainly not run by the likes of ISIS. Whether or not they will be able to avoid one is another matter.
        I think people make the mistake of thinking such situations can come about only with the agreement of the majority. Yet only around 6% of Germans were committed Nazis, which didn’t stop them making pretty much the entire German population acquiesce in accepting their rule and their laws. Tower Hamlets is only 30% Muslim, and I’m sure most of them are “moderate”, yet it is run like a banana republic.

        All for optimism, even of the mindless sort. Sadly I am famous for it.

        However the Syrian ‘secular and modern’ folk did rise up against Assad. Sadly al qaeda and ISIS destroyed them, brutally murdering their leaders so they could go from town to town butchering those who won’t convert.

        Obviously had we actually armed the initial rebels, as much as al qaeda and Isia are armed by the Saudis, then the ‘secular modern’ rebels may have had a chance. But we didn’t and now we reap the whirlwind.

        But please keep looking on the bright side of a Caliphate in the 21st century, I could do with some cheering up.

    I had the misfortune of seeing a few minutes of tonight’s Panorama – Britain’s Homeless Families. The warning was clear (‘Richard Bilton meets families forced out by private landlords and asks whether the government’s increasing reliance on the private rental sector is placing the vulnerable at risk’) but there was one gem of a remark from Conservative housing minister Kris Hopkins.
    The beeboid said “despite all that you’re saying, isn’t the welfare cap the reason that so many families are being made homeless” to which the minister replied “That might be on the Labour Party press release somewhere but there’s no evidence that that’s the case”.
    We need more ministers who are prepared to call the bBBC’s bluff and say things like this.

      The words ‘private landlord’ were spat out with venom normally used amongst normal people when referring to child molesters.
      Only the BBC could present a programme about homelessness without mentioning mass immigration and the hundreds of thousands of ‘singool muvvers ‘ and bone idle work shy underclass chavs who were given free council housing at the expense of white working people who are now at the bottom of the list .
      The sale of council houses cannot have made any difference to the homeless figures ,as they were sold originally to their tenants .
      There was also no mention of the unlawful occupation of council houses, especially in high immigrant areas ,where such illegal tenancies change hands for thousands of pounds.
      Until local authorities take an inventory of just who is living in their properties with full identity checks, and checks on immigrant status ,this abuse will never be eradicated

      Got to get this little bit of gripe in here. Buy to Let is a major problem, too many wannabe landlords, all on the make, and backed by the government, stuffed with imbeciles with huge portfolios, hoovering up vast numbers of affordable housing and diminishing choice for people keen to be householders, not beholden to some landlord for a roof over their heads. The market therefore is distorted greatly. These greedy bastards are helped along by tax-breaks and the horde of support services that fester in such a climate. If anyone thinks i’m an embittered tenant, wrong, my house is bought and paid for, i would not even consider BTL ‘investment’…..i know a few, and they are ugly, selfish people, i avoid them like the plague. Hordes of immigrants have entered the fray, go to an auction and look at the bidders, Asians a plenty, Chinese etc…….our youngsters have no chance at all to own a home.

    The BBC is certainly very worried about the returning ISIS terrorists carrying on their murderous when they return to their ‘home’ countries. In fact in some of their reporters I detected fear, as they recognised what a threat to this country these fanatics pose. It has taken years for at least some sections of the BBC to wake up to what having millions of Muslims in our country may well result in. Of course once the initial shock of the realisation has worn off we get the usual BBC apologia for Islamic terror and the dumping of the blame on the west . But slowly they are beginning to realise what most of us on this site have long known, that a policy of mass immigration of people with very different cultures and beliefs to those of the host country, is unlikely to end well. Having lots of folks from the EU may cause tensions but those tensions are small compared to those that arise from having millions of people with cultures so different to our own.
    If there are acts of terror in the UK in next year or so the BBC will no doubt still stick with its ‘it’s all our own fault script’ but even they will recognise how hollow it sounds, as the awful reality of what the liberal left, Labour and the BBC have done to our country begins to dawn on them.

    There was a great example last week of an American woman at a Heritage Foundation conference arguing “Quit all this PC sermonising about the wonderful moderate Muslim majority. First – where are they, we seldom hear them really slapping down the extremists. Second – we know from history that it is the ruthless minority of extremists who drive events, not the so-called moderates – look at the Nazis in Germany, look at the Bolsheviks in Russia, look at the Maoists in China. The “moderates” are no defence. (And look at ISIS within the Sunni community in Iraq and Syria?)

    We also had the spectacle of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown being told to her face that people attacked her not because of racism, nor religion, nor sexism/misogyny – she is attacked because she is such a sanctimonious whiner – “the nastiest person in public life”, forever using false arguments.

      “I wish we had more plain speaking like this on the BBC”

      The function of the BBC for the Guardian reading section of the population is to re-educate people so that they can only think about the world in terms of correct Party thinking.

      “Party thinking” has absolutely no connection with any reality other than the greed of middle class public sector workers who combine their lack of interest in the world with hostility towards anybody who dares to think or act for themselves.

      The function of the tax system for the Left (other than enriching themselves) is to take away your freedom of action.

      That is why they are so keen to destroy English values – because they justify resistance to Guardian readers because of an allegiance to values (such as truth) that transcend the State.

      The Left are an atavistic return to tribal collectivism. Their sole contribution is destruction and intolerance. This is what they have in common with Islam.

In addition, all the reporting I’ve heard has been curiously vague as to what these journalists are supposed to have done and why the verdict is wrong. It’s just taken as a given that it is.

    ‘Sickening’ anti-Semitic attack on Manchester cemetery
    Anti-Semitic graffiti and swastikas have been daubed over gravestones in a Jewish cemetery in Manchester. Greater Manchester Police said the attack at the cemetery in Rochdale Road, Blackley, was “sickening and cruel” racism. In addition to the slogans and graffiti some of the graves were toppled by the vandals

    Got to love how the bBC reports the daubing of paint first over the knocking over of grave stones. But what surprised me was this statement:
    “The Community Security Trust said such incidents had been cut in Greater Manchester over the past three years.”

    Cut, why haven’t I heard about this, I do when anybody looks funny at a Muslim in the UK, I wonder just who could be behind such a disrespectful act. A quick look reveals that there are 4 mosques (or their ilk) within 500 metres of the Jewish cemetery, would it racist to look at the Islamic community as the people behind such acts.

    But then seeing as the Anti-Semitic bBC has recently relocated to Manchester, I wonder if the so called impartial bBC could be behind all of this.

When more than twenty times as many people marched in London against labour policy in 2003, (Countryside Alliance and Iraq invasion protests) the labour government completely ignored them. So when less than 5% of that figure marches against a fantasy of austerity, where is the story?

    BBC Website; top story headline: “Andy Coulson guilty of hacking”

    Opening line of story: “The prime minister’s former spin doctor Andy Coulson has been found guilty at the phone-hacking trial.”

    World at One on Radio 4 devoting most of its time to the hacking trial verdicts. All the focus seems to be on Coulson – or rather – or rather, on David Cameron who is guilt of bad judgment but not of any criminality.

    There is virtually no focus on the not guilty verdicts on all charges against Rebekah Brooks, her husband and her secretary. They have been prime BBC targets for years now, “guilty until found innocent” – but their innocence is now being swept under the carpet.

    By contrast – Sky seems to be balancing both aspects of the verdicts delivered so far.

      Something of a Damocles Sword in that it is so easy to criticise the left for the same thing
      BBC and Jimmy Saville
      BBC and Stuart Hall
      BBC and Mr Begg
      J Bowen and Assad

      Unlike the PM the vast majority of the above were dodgy characters before the bBC started using them. Colson on the other hand was clean.

        Which, let’s face it was the bonus ball to knocking Sky TVs bid into touch.

        If they cared about this story they would have publicised it in the mid-2000s when they were more than aware of what was going on. I wonder why they didn’t?

    I’m looking forward to the daily ‘Ramadan Bombathon Score Board’ on the BBC news, which will keep a tally of how many people retarded muslim savages have killed during their ‘holy’ month, starting June 29th. Get yourselves ready – I’ve a feeling this year’s gonna be a doozy with Iraq and Syria in play.

    They will show it, won’t they? I’m sure…

    During this time, of course, Jews will be working on their 170th Nobel Prize (or whatever the number is) the boring bast*rds. So thank god for Islam for keepin’ it real!

        So ’13 was just under double ’12’s tally? Incredible. The lust for killing these muslim savages has just gets worse and worse. I’m expecting the next ten years to really ramp things up. Coming years could make ’13 look like a pi*s-take. And with Allah looking even more favourably on those who kill in the holy (snigger) month, what’s not to like? Should I get around to William Hill?

    So I wonder why the bBC are reporting this racist attack on in London which is having its day in court.
    Gang of men smashed American tourist’s eye socket with bottle of Jagermeister he was drinking from after wrestling it from his hands

    A gang of men attacked an American student while he was drinking in the street – grabbing a glass bottle from his hands and smashing it over his head, a court was told. Francesco Hounye, 23, from Florida, had been in Britain for just three days when he was set upon by the men while he was walking home with a friend in Shadwell, east London.

    Gee, why would five men attack a man for drinking alcohol in East London. Anybody have a clue? Meanwhile the left are telling me the Islamic terrorists who bugger off to the Mother country in which to murder their fellow Muslims do so becasue:
    1) British colonial history
    2) Government cuts
    3) British Police were too slow
    4) Radicalised by an imam, who is allowed to deny that claim.

    Nothing about the unholy Koran which brainwashes Muslims to Murder,death, kill and the bBC (And its trolls on here) claims I am the intolerant one.

    Flash report from [email protected]

    I have observed the following instances of bias, thus far tonight:

    1) BBC teaming up with Labour to have a field day over the hacking case and saying that David Cameron will have to do more than apologise. Will the BBC apologise to Brooks about the way in which they’ve treated her on comedy programs and radio shows now that she has had all charges dropped?

    2) BBC Reporting Scotland salivating over the Bannock Burn battles 700th anniversary: the very fact that some Scots obsess over a battle with the English that happened centuries ago is evidence of a strong anti-English sentiment and is quite frankly small minded and utterly pathetic. But we all know that the BBC in Scotland is intrinsically SNP-biased.
    3) BBC Reporting Scotland groveling to the Muslim community in Scotland blubbering that a Scottish Jihadi (what a mix!!) is in no way representative of the Scottish Islamic community (How do they know?).

      You missed out the comments made about David Cameron by the Polish Prime Minister, who is something of a Thatcherite.

      It’s been a terrible day for Cameron and to be honest the BBC seems to have just stood back stroking its chin and kind of nodding towards Cameron.

      It didn’t have to do anything today, Cameron managed it all on his own !

      The Scots only prevailed at Bannockburn because the English King Edward the First, Hammer of the Scots had just died, leaving his useless son in charge, who was utterly un-warlike and over-ruled his experienced military leaders, used to his father, and the rest is, as they say, history. The Scots got lucky, it was not the leadership of Bruce as they suggest. That will upset the scots on B-BBC…..i don’t care.

        The real story of Bannockburn I suspect is feudal lords fighting for power at the expense of the lives of the little people. I don’t think for many serfs it made much difference who was king.

          The BBC will have a conflict of interest on this one as Edward II was homosexual. He was eventually deposed and murdered by his wife and her lover – allegedly with a red-hot poker – the ultimate manifestation of homophobia. The BBC just has to see him as a victim.

      Re: 3) Rule of thumb:

      1% of Muslims willing to be active Jihadis;
      10% of Muslims willing to give real assistance but not take part directly;
      90% of Muslims sitting on their hands.

      If those figures are close to correct the statement, a Scottish Jihadi is in no way representative of the Scottish Islamic community is technically true.

      And if you don`t laugh(and you won`t)…then you`ll be racist, and have a problem with black people?
      If only Ted Ray had thought of that!
      Amos and that Iranian unfunny woman-Esther and Abi O Farim of comedy…dream team of BBC fantasies.
      I myself will be getting my Tim Vine/Tommy Cooper remaindered books to remind myself of when comedy was meant to make me laugh-NOT advance the prospects of unfunny folk of the right shade.
