    Revolt of the drones ?

    Credit where credit is due, our lanky sofa jockey Dan Walker braves a storm of righteous lefty counterblast as he mildly suggests that those commentators acusing Donald Trump of ‘inciting violance against the press’ with his jokey WWF clip are perhaps experiencing a ‘sense of humour failure’.

    Our Dan becomes almost herioc for a second as he goes on to expose the double standards involved in this current outrage as those same partisan commenters defended Kathy Griffin’s anti-Trump severed head photos.

    Louise Munchkin’s face was a picture as she squirmed in response to Dan’s small moment of rebellion.

    Careful, Dan. If a sofa eunuch shows too much cojones they’ll cut them off for real

      Yes, but did they discuss WHY Trump is taking the piss out of CNN? Because I’ve yet to hear anything on British media about the admission that their Russia story was made up. Seems to me the media protecting their own.

        The BBC seem to simply regurgitate CNN nonsense, in the same sneering, child-like way.
        They’re best dealt with by mocking on social media.

        I was watching Batman vs Superman again last night to see if it was any better on a second viewing (it wasn’t really) but I noticed just how much exposure CNN were getting in the film. Every news piece that was reported was run through CNN.

        I couldn’t help but chuckle at how it was CNN pushing Lex Luthor’s fake agenda that Superman was bad. Even in a work of fiction, they were still the go to news agency to push bullshit propaganda.

          Whenever I watch a big blockbuster Hollywood or mainstream film nowadays I’m always on the side of the villains. If I had gazillions of dollars I’d be scheming in a hollowed out volcano with a white cat – and I’d be fighting my own private war against the likes of Soros, The EU, UN and any amount of goody-two-shoes NGO’s that you could shake a stick at.

      AsISeeIt, Aaarggghhh, BBC Breakfast will not let me watch it on iPlayer as I’m outside the UK. It also informs me that there is less than one hour left to watch yesterday’s programme.

      I Googled around but cannot find the clip. Perhaps some enterprising soul can record the extraordinary evidence of a BBC employee defending Trump and plonk it on YouTube for posterity?! (We live in hope.)

    You have to admire the BBC’s persistence, they never miss an opportunity to push their agenda

    In a week where the BBC becomes Wimbledon-obsessed our Carol Kirkwood is sent down to SW19 to…. plug climate alarmism…. she reminisces about 2015 when apparently some record temperature was set for a July Wednesday lunchtime on Centre Court or somesuch tendentious trivia.

    Stephen Hawking is celebrating his birthday and BBC chap Pallab Ghosh has a chance to ask the great theoretical physicist and cosmologist a couple of questions…

    “What do you think of Brexit?” “What do you think about President Trump pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement?”

    Relentless.

    And do you think the BBC would have asked Hawking these questions which are outside of his field of expertise had they not approved his answers – indeed do you think they would have bothered to broadcast his answer had he not supported their approved narratives?

    The bBBC’s look-down-your- nose attitide to the private sector is well known and is a permanent feature of their mindset.
    On Toady this morning at 0710 Mischel ‘useless’ Hussein interviewed two people about the public sector pay cap. This seems to have ll the hallmarks of an orchestrated Labour Party inspired political campaign btw.
    A half-reasonable discussion followed with a few comparisons with pay in the private sector and a welcome admission that the pay cap has resulted in little or no reduction compared with the private sector.
    But use the word ‘nurses’ in a debate and everyone automatically goes wooly- headed and logic goes out the window.
    Thus the debate only focussed on headline pay and there was no mention of in-work benefits.
    The fabulous pension deals, longer holidays, and job security in the public sector were totally left out of the discussion. Absolutely pathetic. As usual. She’s not called ‘useless’ for nothing.

      Nurses, Policepersons and Firepersons do quite well in the pay stakes. The minions that do all the ‘pen-pushing’ that keeps the wheels of government, (tax collection, benefit & pension payments, purchasing, bill paying etc etc.), not so well.

      Public sector broadcasters do better than MPs, who are in the ‘top 10%’. Perhaps ‘equality’ and ‘redistribution’ could start here?

        Show me a fireman that doesn’t have a second job – running their own fitted furniture business e.g. kitchens is a common one.

        And no, it’s not because they need to, but because they have time to.

      Sluff,

      >A half-reasonable discussion followed with a few comparisons with pay in the private sector<
      I missed it this morning, but in what way can BBC compare public sector pay to private sector? Is the BBC leaning on its own experience, whereby £4bn of guaranteed income means they don't have to worry about such things? Even in the private sector pay differs between sub-sectors, so I often wonder about this comparison. In what way are the roles similar? In the private sector, oftentimes you don't get an automatic annual rise just for staying in a job as seems to happen in some parts of the public sector.

      We don't know the answers of course, because we are never given the full facts, but these comparisons are often misleading, as are the stats given in respect of the so-called female/ male pay gap.

        Rob
        For the record, you accurately describe my first hand personal patient experience but it goes further. Sitting at work stations and avoiding patients, as you describe, includes not signing people off efficiently to allow them home from hospital. So you bed block while waiting for someone who can be arsed to sign off your paperwork. Meanwhile in A and E people wait on trolleys in corridors waiting for a bed space, which naturally leads to bBBC Labour reports of ‘crisis and underfunding’.
        If I had brains I would conclude it is all part of a deliberate tactic to demand yet more funding from a gullible public whose brains switch off when their ears register the word ‘nurses’.

    Huge guffaw moment on the TODAY Programme this morning at approximately 7.53am. Sylvie Kauffman is the editorial director of Le Monde and took the opportunity to take a sly dig at the BBC and its querulous presenters.

    Now, I wonder who she had in mind?

    Please feel free to submit nominations.

    So the beebistan are to air a follow-on documentary on Pakistani muslim sex gangs called The Betrayed Girls.

    No doubt they’ll be blaming everyone except the Pakistani muslim perpetrators.

    I wonder if they’ll reveal the full scale of the abuse? Some stats below, which are only the tip of the iceberg.

    http://www.pmclauth.com/sentenced/Grooming-Gang-Statistics/Gangs-Jailed

    “Grooming Gang Statistics
    Table showing details of those jailed as members of gangs who targeted white schoolgirls for rape. Muslims are approximately 5% of the UK population, but they are 90% of those convicted for these grooming gang crimes. Here you can see not only the ages of the men, but also the towns with which their crimes were associated. When one considers that logically there must be in excess of 100,000 victims, the convictions below are the tip of a massive iceberg. Convictions are grouped by date of trial conclusion, then by town, then by surname. Norfolk’s pivotal article (2011) had around 50 convictions and this enabled a revolution in how the media responded to this phenomenon. Below there are now over 200 convictions. The name “Mohammed” (and variant names for the founder of Islam) is rendered in a bold font.

      Thank you for the link

      The number of girls that were sex slaved across the UK by Muslims is upwards of 30,000. If one estimates 10 men to each girl, that amounts to 300,000 Pakistani Muslims . This is virtually the entire male adult make Pakistani population. This also means that the entire community knew it – men, boys, women and imams. OTH if the victims are nearer to 100,000, then I dont know what to think. Mulims taxi drivers were heavily involved in the sex slave trade.

      This treason by the authorities is of such magnitude and depravity that I’m not surprised that everyone wants to sanitise it, and sweep it under the carpet.

      Meanwhile the demographic destruction of Britain looms ever nearer.

          Charlie, NCBBC & Stew,

          Further to your three posts, The BBC is a criminal organisation and should be prosecuted.
          I don’t know what the charges could/would be. I’m not a lawyer.
          But attempting (and to some extent succeeding) to whitewash a filthy cult like Islam and helping it’s adherents to continue attacks on the children of our nation is nothing short of evil. They are enablers to a nationwide child-sex ring. I know people cannot be charged with “evil” but they certainly deserve trial & tough prison sentences for something!

        So true. Those who enabled the mass rape of British children are practically as guilty as the rapists.

        One horrific fact of war is the rape of the losers by the victors. Many of the Muslim infiltrators into Europe evidently regard their war against the people of Europe as already won as they rape their way across the continent.

        The enablers of these latter-day Nazis certainly should be charged with treason.

        In a rougher but more honest time they would have been put up against a wall and shot – along with the rapists themselves.

For some reason the BBc is promoting the sexual health social worker as the single handed hero of the day or that’s my perception of what I’ve seen. Everything refers to the outrage FIVE years ago. Funny then as I have mentioned before that the secret filming of Griffin had already left the rat out of the bag on grooming and other activities. It must be more than five years since the first tranche of pedos appeared in Liverpool court.However in this apparent history re-write nothing happened before five years ago. I’m sure the sky would fall in if the BBc admitted the role the “right wing” had in blowing the story open.
      Meanwhile Wimbledon begins so if you don’t like tennis like me don’t bother with the BBc mind you I don’t watch much on the BBc these days at all. I’ve even stopped watching the BBc news most of the time.

      The men were allowed, he said, to come and go from care homes by the authorities, and if the situation had been reversed with gangs of white men preying on Muslim teenagers ”the state’s agencies would have acted with greater alacrity.”

      And this is Britain in the 21st century. Makes you want to weep blood.

    Not BBC but SKY TV this morning (little difference). John Nichol, Geordie and former Royal Air Force navigator, reviewing the papers. Tends to be more sensible than average. However, today he enthused about a photograph of women who have served in the armed forces over the years – fair enough. However, most of his attention was focussed on a transgender “woman”, saying how wonderful this is and how the armed forces have moved on etc etc (or words to that effect). He didn’t explain precisely what the overall benefit is.

    Does he really believe this? Is it shared by former colleagues? I always thought “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was a wise way of approaching these things.

    A comment about Army numbers or the size of the Navy might have been more worthwhile.

    I suppose that is the sort of stuff you have to say to get your face on TV these days.

      the unanimity on this “trans” nonsense across the globe and at home suggests at some level there is control being exerted.

      Trying to get a position adopted in an organisation can take months of meeting and debate, yet this trans position emerged from nowhere and is now universally sold as a “good thing” by all media and other public bodies such as Police, NHS… even the church…..

      One can only assume that broadcasters are being told what to say….on threat of loss of earnings and commissions and/or that they are anticipating what their crazed masters might want and are complying before being instructed.

            For example, let’s assume that the government imposes a punitive tax designed to create ‘social justice’, whatever the hell that means.

            The insiders don’t pay the tax, they never do; high net-worth individuals flee the country; the middle class is crushed into non-existence; and there is a huge underclass which also doesn’t pay the tax because they are the ones the tax is designed to benefit.

        Embolden, my theory is that pressure groups and NGOs set up to push for legal equality of homosexuals have now moved on to ‘trans’ issues, now that legal parity with the former group has been achieved. Many of these will have strong backing from marxist/progressive organisations. It would perhaps been better if they had instead transferred their efforts to challenge the persecution of homosexuals in fundamentalist Islamic culture, but I think we all know that’s highly unlikely, though a few brave individuals are doing so.

    Over the past three months or so, I have regulated my daily “fix” of news and I can say that it is now down comfortably to the essential headlines from the BBC two, maybe, three times a day. I confess to feeling much better for it. The rare exception to my new pattern is occasionally when the move occurs directly from the headlines to the more featured so-called, “in-depth scrutiny” of a topic which is where the inbuilt, institutional BBC bias and manipulation manifests itself. I allow myself that deviation provided that the BBC don’t make their bias obvious within the first two sentences or so. Otherwise, off switch.
    Today, a break with normality: I turned BBC Radio 4’s Today on at 0830 to catch the headlines. At 0840’ish one Jeremy Vine interviews a Canadian author named Naomi Klein – http://www.straight.com/news/931731/naomi-kleins-new-book-donald-trump-gets-heart-problem-billionaire-saviours
    Having dramatically reduced my listening time, I cannot now comment upon all the relentless propaganda pumped out by the BBC but it appears to me that Glenfell and the GE (albeit riddled with their own commensurate forms of bias), has given the listener some respite in ‘BBC hates Trump’. What was patently obvious in the Vine/Klein interview is that both detest Trump in their overwhelming support for the Democrats and will do anything to facilitate Trumps downfall. So, discussion around impeachment and Klein thought it a good thing that the Russian investigation continues, “in the background” despite their being no evidence whatever. Trumps corporate activities similarly. What resulted? Well, the BBC will be pleased with that interview because in the propaganda department, they would consider it went rather smoothly with the superficial BBC listener having been, ‘topped-up’ with anti-Trump rhetoric enough to send him/her on their way for the day hating the evil Trump.

      The politically motivated, anti-Trump fanatic and liar, Naomi Klein, is afforded space on the Today programme at regular intervals, and each time is given free rein without any proper questioning by the ‘interviewer’. This morning was no exception, with her randomly mentioning ‘climate change’, Russia connection’, ‘impeachment’ without demur from Justin Webb. Were the BBC even-handed, it would interview Sean Hannity or Mark Stein – but we’d have to wait for climate-change to make the ice-accumulating Antarctic ice-free before that happens! Btw, The Klein was doubtless delighted that the BBC provided free advertising for her new book.

      It is becoming obvious that we are not only involved in group thought, but also words that group a lot of conflicting terms or ideas.

      Here is where we are failing in using our language correctly. Let us take the word Muslim as an instance, you can apply this idea to different things as well, so don’t think the word “Muslim” is a special case.

      If you use the word “Muslim” which of these is it?
      A Muslim born in the UK?
      A Muslim born outside the UK, emigrated to the UK?
      A Muslim from Iran who has been raised as a child listening to Ayatollah Khomeini?
      (“…There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”)
      A Muslim from Saudi Arabia who has seen beheadings in Deera Square as a child (unsure if there are age restrictions on viewing this sort of thing)?
      (After Friday prayers [Saudi Arabia,Deera Square], police and other officials clear the area to make way for the execution to take place. After the beheading of the condemned, the head is stitched to the body and the body is wrapped up for the final rites and taken away. a wiki ref)
      A Muslim fighting ISIS reading the Dabiq everyday?
      (ISIS Magazine. Dabiq is where Muslim and infidel forces will eventually face each other)
      A Kurdish Muslim female fighter shooting ISIS soldiers?
      A Muslim women being forced to stay hidden at home under a veil in a Western society?
      A Muslim women free to talk in UK Parliament?
      A Muslim imam preaching hate such as Anjem Choudary?
      (Anjem Choudary allowed to spread hate speech 1999-2016). “..we will dominate this country (UK))
      A Muslim from Bradford,UK who drives to Glasgow,UK to kill another Muslim (Asad Shah)?
      (Tanveer Ahmed who murdered Asad Shah … shouts in courtroom “Praise for the Prophet Muhammad, there is only one Prophet!”)
      A Muslim who visits Mecca,Saudi Arabia and has to leave his non-Muslim friend outside of Mecca?
      (Sign on road to Mecca “Muslims Only (for Mecca in green)” “For Non Muslims (in red, not sure where you end up – scary)).

      Which of these Muslims are you talking about? Just to be clear.

    The powers that be have announced that no prosecutions will be made for illegal subletting of flats in Grenfell as it is ‘not in the public interest’. I think what they mean is ‘not in the government’s interest’. If it were shown just how much illegal subletting is going on (presumably in all enriched parts of Britain), the right would criticise them for the number of illegal immigrants allowed in the country and the left would demand taxpayers’ money be spent on building better homes for them.

    Why isn’t the BBC as our national broadcaster asking questions about this kind of thing, even if they did it to discredit Tory housing policy? I think they are terrified of what is called ‘victim blaming’. In cultural marxism it is verboten to say that the Grenfell tragedy might not have been so bad if only the number of people the building was designed for were living in it. But this is patently obvious; if fewer people were living there, it stands to reason fewer would have died. Yet the ‘narrative’ was already decided – the residents were innocent victims murdered by a money-grubbing Tory government.

      I could take that to mean that subletting is no longer illegal. Nor is being in the country without authorisation.
      Could it be that everything we once new as illegal is now legalised and we can do whatever we like no matter whom it hurts? Or is that just a guideline for Muslims?

      Or is it that subletting is now legal as long as you burn your house down before they catch you out?

        Trying to be optimistic for once, if the authorities can get a true picture of subletting at Grenfell Tower, it might give us a valid picture of just how much of it is going on.

        It might shake the British public up to realise just how much illegal immigration there is. The official population figure of 65 million is a complete joke.

    I note that a Labour MP is criticising the judge appointed to chair the inquiry into the Grenfell fire. Once again we see a special interest group claiming that it should have special treatment, in this case the right of veto , or even the power to appoint the head of an enquiry. Given the way that the politicians and media have fallen over themselves to make concession after concession to any and all of these special interest groups for the past decades , it isn’t a surprise that the leaders of these groups , often self appointed leaders at that, believe themselves to in positions of power and privilege.
    Our once united ad cohesive country is slowly fracturing into a hodgepodge of groups based on ethnicity or religion or sexuality all claiming they are special . If this continues ,and how will it be stopped, the ties that bind will break and the welfare state will dissolve into nothing with who knows what consequences. All of this was entirely foreseeable but the politicians chose to do the easy thing and appease those who shouted loaders.
    Of course the lobbyists were given a platform and a megaphone by the BBC. In my view the BBC has done more damage to our country than any other institution in history. The BBC are in large part responsible for the bitterness post referendum, for the inter generational strife that they are busy fanning the flames of. They have undermined British identity at every turn for forty or fifty years to such an extent that young people no longer have any respect or belief in the country. This means that they do not value Britishness and feel no sense of loss as they see it being swept away. Of course this was always the intention of the liberal left with the BBC at the spear head , to weaken the resistance of the country to changes they thought necessary to allow their radical and highly dangerous Globalist social engineering experiment any chance of what they deem to be success.

    Rochdale grooming prosecutor Nazir Afzal calls on Muslims to ‘stop blaming the victims of child sex abuse’
    An important speech by the head of the CPS in the North West, but it appeared in the Daily Mail, and it isn’t what the BBC want the public to hear so it hasn’t bothered reporting it.

    “Writing for the Mail on Sunday Mr Afzal said: “There are parts of our country now where violent misogyny is equally accepted and even celebrated. What worries me is that these are largely Asian areas with little appetite in the community to do anything about it.

    “There’s no escaping the fact that Asian and Pakistani men are disproportionately involved in localised street grooming of vulnerable young girls. Our jails are filling up with Muslim prisoners and yet the crimes they’re committing have become a taboo subject.”

    Mr Afzal says he has tried to engage with Muslim audiences to talk about how to deal with these crimes, but doing so is ‘frustratingly difficult’.

    He added that there is ‘sterling work’ being carried out in the Asian community to challenge misogynistic views, ‘but too frequently those groups making a real difference exist without much support from the wider community’.

    “So-called Muslim community leaders would prefer these issues were ignored,” he said.

    “It sickens me that there are people in the Asian community who don’t want women to be empowered, they don’t want women to support each other and would prefer women to be oppressed and do what men want them to do,” he said.
    “Forcing the Muslim community to do more to deal with these problems as to be the starting point to drove grooming gangs out of existence.”

    It’s what many of us have been saying for years, but the Fascist (il)liberal Left have stuck their collective fingers in their ears and are shouting LA LA LA very loudly.

One advert says “75% say breastfeeding in public is fine, 25% say put them away. What’s your way?”. “Unmumsy mum” blogger Sarah Turner said supporting the “dangerous” view could put mums off breastfeeding in public. The Advertising Standards Authority has received 110 complaints. The BBC has contacted Baby Dove.
    “No woman should be made to feel ashamed for feeding their baby in public,” Ms Turner wrote in an open letter to Dove.

    The President would be well advised to make it clear that this country is at the moment in the grip of some sort of progressive lunacy led by middle class academia and media abetted by the BBC and C4. That all visits will be cancelled unless of a minor nature by him and other administration people. That we are to be considered unreliable now as an ally .

        Another moan – I checked which Prom concerts are being televised. Guess what – without actually checking on a concert-by-concert basis, it seems that every non classical Proms concert is being televised. Since there is little classical anything on TV these days, and classical concerts are not always accessible to everyone, especially the large scale expensive stuff, would it be too much to ask to concentrate on the classical concerts for a few weeks?

            I don’t believe it’s instrinsically snobbish to prefer one kind of music. All types of music have their fans, and they all have their reasons, but it only seems to be classical fans who are expected to defend their choice before they’ve even expressed an opinion on another genre. Certain things are given higher priority in classical music. The same can be said for jazz. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

            If you really want to attract vitriol, listen to the “wrong” type of pop/rock.

Then a friend in Hull told me they had all been sold out anyway for weeks i.e. weeks before they had gone on sale. Presume they were handed out like sweeties by the BBC to their friends and relations i.e. left leaning luvvies.

                A friend went to the Last Night a couple of years ago on a free ticket. Her relation is in ‘The Arts’ and had been given some by the BBC. Remember that the money for all these tickets is paid for us, the license payer.

Straightforward music programming without irritating, unnecessary TV “personalities” getting in the way, or patronising explanations.

            Then there was the music quiz “Face the Music”.

              Tabs has it right, you are paying for dumbing down.

              In a way, it is very strange of the BBC to do this. You would think that in their current full-on EU Remain mode, that they would be keen on Bach, Beethoven, Debussy, Dvorak, Handel, Mendlessohn, Mozart, Schumann, Strauss, Stravinsky and Verdi et al. A celebration of the great things that Europe has given us. Oops! Silly me! All before the EU existed. Just doesn’t count! And all white men, with the occasional white woman in there, too. So that is just not diverse enough for the BBC.

              Instead the BBC goes after populism or, at least, popularism, no doubt in a desire for gaining younger listeners. Now, I’m all for a Prom for classic film music scores or for listening to a Youth Orchestra from favela somewhere. But as novelty or ‘filler’. Not as in every week, two or three times a week in a park somewhere, all on the Licence Fee.

              I guess that’s what it’s about really. Trying to win over the youth, to become indispensible to them, just to gain their loyalty (bit like the EU) ….. and their future Licence Fee money. While doing some propaganda as well.

              Dangerous game, BBC.

              In this digital day and age, the kids expect it all for free. They listen to world music including the classic orchestral compositions and hymns and jazz and 60s and 70s Pop & Rock and post glowing tributes on-line while complaining about the paucity of what their near contemporaries offer them.

              So then dear BBC; how about a bit of educate and inform to go with the entertainment instead?

Quintessentially British but not in a narrow sense – it was always welcoming foreign guests and celebrating great music whatever its origins. Joseph Cooper – so brilliant yet so urbane and modest. Robin Ray’s knowledge was astounding. The dummy keyboard – I loved that round.

    Nice to see the Beeb pushing their feminist agenda by reporting on Michelle Rodriguez threatening to leave the franchise if female characters aren’t treated better. But there are – there all plenty of women in the film filling important roles. Yes, there might be some providing the Max Power stereotype bikini clad girls with the requisite hot guys but what’s wrong with that.

    Maybe Michelle could acknowledge that without the efforts of the male actors such as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker who kept the franchise going in the early days or the injection of new blood with The Rock and Jason Statham, the franchise might not be continuing to make her a steady income.

    The reality that her fragile ego couldn’t handle is that she could leave the franchise and we wouldn’t really care.

    A few days ago I recommended the commentator Alex Deane and some of you put up a couple of his appearances.

    He’s just been on sky news with some lass who says the public sector all deserve pay rises and he wiped the floor with her.
    He counters all the lefts wild claims with facts and gets the point across clearly and effectively.
    He’s a bit like JRM.
    I hope we see much more of him as he’s highly impressive.

    One thing the girl said about public pay lagging private pay and calling Alex out of date with his facts was instantly demolished by him. He pulled out his phone and showed the BBC’s own fact checker site proving him correct and it was half an hour old, definitely not out of date.
    He also doesn’t let the lefties get away with their throwaway remarks which until now we’re never challenged. He immediately debunks them and does so on this occasion as well.

    I’m sure someone knows how to put this ‘debate’ up on here. It was on sky news about 1630’ish.

    When the BBC used to report on itself (self critical)- can’t find anything after 2009 on bbc.co.uk site for a similar update on expenses. At-a-glance: BBC executive expenses – 2009 (brought on by MP Expense Scandal)

    Mark Thompson, Director General – £2,236.90 Flight from family holiday in Sicily, Italy to deal with the row over lewd calls made to actor Andrew Sachs on Russell Brand’s Radio 2 show. [30/08/08]
    Or the BBC license fee payer paid £2,236 for a flight (private jet) to tell two children off (Brand/Ross) who should know better.

    “In an email to staff, Mr Thompson said: ‘I don’t underestimate the extent to which this may feel uncomfortable for individuals,’ Mr Thompson (Director General BBC) said in the email (but possibly continued spending anyway).”

    Oh, hold on 7 years later “Seven top BBC executives who have either left the BBC or announced their decision to do so ran up expenses of £25,000 in the last six months of 2015. (Wendy Darke £11K) [Apr 2016]

    For the Many (BBC 51% salaries 2015 > £100K), Not the Few (BBC 49% salaries 2015 < £100K)
    The next most top salary heavy division was finance and operations, which includes Yentob, where 46 of 90 senior managers (51%) are paid more than £100,000. [Oct 2015]

    Mark Thompson, Directory General BBC, 2004 – 2012 Expenses
    Salary: £613,000
    Total remuneration: £622,000

    Maybe the BBC for 2017 should do an update on the ‘Expenses Scandals’ in both the BBC World and Political World?

    This is one example of the BBC bias in action.

    On the BBC World News homepage they have in one of their minor placement positions the headline: “Bangladeshi human rights activist missing” 1 hour ago Asia.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world

    Go to the BBC Asia News homepage – and the story is not headlined at all – it is entirely missing. Instead it is the usual anti-India stories they run.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world/asia

    So click on the Bangladeshi story and it is a very short article on the fact that a human rights activist in Bangladesh has been kidnapped and that there is a rapid rise in the number of human rights activists in Bangladesh going missing and ending up dead. But of course you would hardly realise this from the BBC because of the way they downplay all criticism of Bangladesh and Pakistan.

    A story in the making which we all believed was going to come after the election anyway, but is currently being ignored by the BBC.

    A New Labour party Chairman has been elected, Ian Lavery who has made the following ominous statement:

    “Labour is ‘too broad a church’ and MPs could face deselection. ”

    Mr Lavery, who helped orchestrate Labour’s election campaign, has sparked fears of a purge against the party’s moderates.
    He said: ‘We are a broad church. Some might argue, and I would be one of them, that we might be too broad a church.

    In an interview with the Huffington Post published at the weekend, he warned that no Labour MP has a ‘divine  right’ to keep their seat.

    And he warned the Labour Party’s structures face being overhauled and that he will look at ‘different ways and means’ for selecting would-be MPs.

    He promised that the party’s membership will be central to deciding what Labour candidates to select and keep.

    It would appear that this is a signal that the so called ‘moderate’ Labour MPs are facing deselection and the parties membership which will have that central say will very likely be momentum as Labour lurch ever further to the left, perhaps this time irreversibly. The formation of a new party as per the SDP which happened last time Labour did this appears unlikely as the Tory party now occupy the ground Nu Liebour & Tony Bliar once held.

        If nurses can’t manage on a starting pay of £23,652 outside of London, how do pensioners manage on less than a third of that or others on minimum wage at a half of that.

    Continuing on the Rochdale grooming theme, from the BBC’s ‘Don’t Think We Can Avoid Reporting This Any Longer But Make Sure We Put Our Own Spin On It’ dept……

    Headliner on North West News at lunchtime was the staggering revelation of claims that victims’ complaints had been ignored, delivered by our BBC anchorman with a face straighter than any poker adorning the Titanic’s boiler room.

    Followed by a half-hearted interview with Rochdale Council’s spokesman who told us ‘lessons have been learned’. The most challenging question thrown at him by our fearless interviewer was that the authorities had accused the girls of inviting the abuse. No mention of Plod or Social Services being driven by Political Correctness, ‘cultural cohesion’ or Muslims somehow being above any kind of criticism, let alone the law. He also asked how do we know it isn’t still going on (note to BBC: why don’t you send some of your world-beating investigative journalists to go and find out??) – and meekly accepted the mealy-mouthed reply.

    Is this the BBC revered and respected by most of the British people (shrinking by the day, fortunately) for its peerless investigative journalism, impartiality and honesty?

    The bBC knocks out a article which imparts if you know where to look you can find relics from the time the British ruled there. So we have street names, post boxes and city boundary posts . However the impression given is that like the signs of Roman life in the Uk, you really have to go out of your way in which to find it. Utter tosh:
    When you fly into Hong Kong you land at Hong Kong International Airport built by the British before we left.
    Catch a tram, cross on the star ferry or even catch the train upto the Peak and you use transport links built by the British.
    Go to the races, travel through the tunnel next to the race ground to Aberdeen (not a street name) and you will see things the British built. Back to central (by catching a bus) and on a Sunday you will see all the Filipino girls camped out around Statue Square. Very British, just around the corner you will find the old Prince of Wales Building you’ll recognise it as it is very distinctive. (looks alike an upside down gin bottle).
    Hong Kong 7s
    The remains of the Queen Elizabeth are in Hong Kong Harbour
    finally there is Chungking Mansions (anybody who has been to Hong kong will know where I am coming from)

    But the numbers he misses are the same figures for say the last 5+ years and crucually the reduction in 15 year bond yields. The latter is closely related to annuity rates and shows the additional benefit to those with salary based pension entitlement (public sector) over those with defined.contribution based pensions (private sector).

    Chris Christie, New Jersey governor, enjoys beach he closed to public
    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is facing heavy criticism after he was photographed relaxing on a state beach he had ordered closed to the public. The Republican gave the go-ahead for non-essential services to be shut down – including the Island State Beach Park – over the 4 July holiday weekend because of a budget impasse.

    The way the bBC presents this story is that Christie closed down the beach so he could have some time on the beach free from the plebs. Yet that isn’t true. To gain access to Island State Beach Park you have to enter through a manned gate.
    http://www.striperspace.com/large_ruts.html

    However if you live on the Island, you aren’t far from the beach. In fact the bBC photo shows that the Governors home is on the beach (as are two other homes behind him) the place where all the tourists go is around a couple of miles down the road. Huge car parks. The beaches off the towns were still open. Just the public beach was closed. in otherwords a fake story which attacks the republicans as that is all the left know what to do.

    Reading through the report I came across this: Found at Para 3.3 (page 5)
    “La Preference was originally run by the Vegetarian Society from 1951 to 1984. All children admitted in this period had to adopt a vegetarian diet and lifestyle, regardless of their preferences, and the Inquiry heard evidence of children being punished for eating meat products.”
    I wonder why the bBC left that out.

      Hope that the Channel Islands don`t fall for some BBC Newsround kind of look into how children are not getting access to care homes.
      The BBC are just the sort who WOULD go to the Channel Islands for such reasons-and they have been proved to have employed enough paedos for me to not trust them one jot.

      Pounce,

      The bBC reports on the shortcomings (and abuse) of state child care in Jersey from 1940 onwards

      Did it mention the religion of the abusers or the skin colour of their victims?

      I wonder why the BBC left that out?

        Max:

        Is it possible the skin colour and religion of the offenders was the same as the victims?

        Do you have any slight qualms that literally thousands of white British girls have been raped systematically by gangs of Pakistani muslim men? Do you not think that that is a salient fact?

    #BetrayedGirls 9:04pm crucial point is when @mshafiquk came on and said
    “Nothing in my faith that justifies these despicable crimes”
    “our silence was allowing the BNP to continue”
    “I went to our community in Keighly, Bradford Rochdale, but no one would speak up
    ..they all said it’s a BNP thing”

    BTW MO Shaf just called Tommy Robinson a “Fascist Hater” on twitter
    screenshot
    Not realising how that sounds … that Tommy “Hates fascists”

      ““Nothing in my faith that justifies these despicable crimes”

      ….apart from the fact that their “perfect” prophet whom they all endeavour to emulate had sex with his 9 year old wife who he married at 6 years old? No hint of paedophilia connected to Islam there then!

      Why do they continue to perpetuate this blatant lie!

    “The Betrayed Girls” on BBC1. Instead of highlighting the fact that this is a Muslim issue the BBC are typically banging on about the BNP “using the opportunity to stir up racial hatred….”

    Report from BBC
    German bus inferno killed 18 in Bavaria motorway crash
    Eighteen dead and 30 injured after tourist coach crashes and bursts into flames on German autobahn
    The cause of the fire is unknown. Traffic was reportedly moving slowly at the time and the collision between the two vehicles was not described as a major crash.

    BBC Website reports that Justin Trudeau ( Idiot PM of Canada ) made a speech mentioning all the Canadian provinces except Alberta. There are only 13 in total . Even Obama was not that stupid. Amazing !!

    New Kensington and Chelsea council leader issues grovelling apology.
    Get ready for a large queue of lawyers ready to exact blank cheques for all those doctors and engineers who survived the Grenfell tower fire but were given ‘poor service’ in the aftermath.
    I don’t suppose the taxpayers get a say in all this ?
    No, I thought not.
    And just in case you thought I was being excessive, we hear that in Croydon, leaseholders who have exercised a right to buy the lease of their property apparently expect the council to pay for internal fire safety in their apartments.
    How I wish I could get the taxpayer to pay for improvements to my house, but then I’m just a sucker owner-occupier.
    But, as Jeremy Paxman has noted, the interests of taxpayers get very short shrift in collectivist socialist bBBC circles.
