    The bbc have a motto.
    It’s something like ‘nations shall speak peace to one another’ or some pretentious crap.

    I think it should change its motto.

    My suggestion.
    The customer is always wrong.

      Manny,
      Alluha Akbar ( no offense , let alone hate, intended if the spelling is incorrect) would be a more appropriate motto for the 21st century BBC.

        Double,
        I think a lot about causing offence on this blog – which is the only one to which I contribute. Our freedom of speak is now restricted on the off chance that someone might be offended. I also fear the monitoring of this site with authorities with a list of isp addresses should anyone here go beyond displaying their disapproval of the way al Beeb supports the way things have become in our once great country.

      I think it was “Nation shall speak peace unto nation.” You used to be able to see the slogan just below the statue of Ariel on the wall above the main entrance to (old) Broadcasting House. Maybe it is still there. “Pretentious crap” is a bit harsh, but fair.

      How about a more modern version: “Thank you for your comment regarding editorial bias in our programming, which we are investigating.”

      Baby Names

      BBC thread here

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-41160596

      Headline is “Olivia has replaced Amelia as the most popular baby girls’ name in England and Wales, while Muhammad has entered the top 10 most popular boys’ names.”

      Whereas in fact the real story is Mohamed (including all various spellings) is TOP BOYS NAME FOR THE 5TH YEAR RUNNING

      The full list of names is here

      Top 10 girls’ names in England and Wales

      1. Olivia – 5,017
      2. Amelia – 4,777
      3. Emily – 3,551
      4. Isla – 3,476
      5. Ava – 3,285
      6. Isabella – 2,729
      7. Lily – 2,722
      8. Jessica – 2,703
      9. Ella – 2,702
      10. Mia – 2,662

      Top 10 boys’ names in England and Wales

      1. Oliver – 6,623
      2. Harry – 5,284
      3. George – 5,263
      4. Jack – 4,751
      5. Jacob – 4,485
      6. Noah – 4,305
      7. Charlie – 4,190
      8. Muhammad – 3,908
      9. Thomas – 3,898
      10. Oscar – 3,894

      You will see Muhammad is listed as entering the top 10 list of boys names for the first time – LIE

      THE TRUTH IS THAT In all, there were 7,084 Muhammad, Mohammad, and Mohammed boys born in 2016 — ahead of the official first place boy’s name Oliver, which saw 6,623 boys in 2016.

        Putting this into perspective. There were 696,271 live births in England and Wales in 2016. Assuming 50% were female then ~348,136 were male. The top ten boys names represent (including an extra 3,894 for Mohammed variations) is slightly over 7% of all male births.

        Muhammad, Mohammad, and Mohammed boys born in 2016 are 2% of all male births. Given that Muslims make up 4.4% of the total UK population and that most Muslim families have, at least (not sure how polygamy – legal or not figures for the name game), one named Mohammed (all spellings) that shouldn’t leave your nappies in too much of a knot.

          Nice analysis and it indicates towards the true problem. They have half a dozen names and would never contemplate a non-Muslim name. If every ‘white’ (for want of a better term) boy born next year had to be named from a shortlist of 3 or 4 names, I imagine the number of kids called “John” would be somewhat higher next time around.

          I don’t want a survey looking at the number of Muhammads and asking “why are there so many Muslims?” but I would like a debate along the lines of “Why do people begging for asylum and government assistance consider giving their child a western name a badge of shame and dishonour?”

        • JimS says:

          Assuming that all variations of Mo are Muslim and that Muslims represent 4% of the population and that they give birth at the same rate as everyone else then all of the Moes, (2%), represent half of all Muslim boy births.

          Which proves nothing but that Muslims lack imagination when it comes to naming boys.

    Unsurprisingly the BBC side with terror states over Donald Trump. In the BBC World News section they headline President Trumps UN speech as: “Trumps UN Hate Speech Criticised”.

    And who do the BBC give voice to that criticise Donald Trumps speech? Why none other than the terror states themselves: Iran, North Korea and Venezuela. In fact North Korea didn’t respond to Trump’s speech, but that didn’t stop the BBC jumping to their defence.

      Socialist apologists don’t like it when the failed, bloody, calamitous historical record of their favoured ideology is pointed out to them. I really enjoyed Trump’s UN address. How nice to see a POTUS stand in front of those venal progressive scumbags and spell out their rank hypocrisy to their faces. To hear socialism called out on a global stage as the vile, depraved, divisive, murderous toxic bile it has been, is and always will be.

      The BBC must be especially incensed – I can imagine the Corporation’s progressive cadre seething with barely disguised rage as their treasured world view is once again punched squarely in the face by the facts. Trump’s appeal for help to avert a humanitarian disaster already unfolding in Venezuela – once again, thanks to the wonders of collectivist socialism – was a wonderful thing to see. I’m not sure what America can really do, but if they can rally other Latin American nations to intervene in Venezuela’s socialist slide towards absolute catastrophe then all the better.

      I stayed away from watching any msm coverage of Trump’s UN address. I watched the whole speech, unedited, online in HD via YouTube. No ‘explainers’, no ‘commentators’, nobody to game the speech with ‘nuance’. Life is so much more enjoyable when you cut out the fake news and think for yourself.

        You’ve highlighted several really important issues there, a particularly important one being of the power of the Internet to steal back from propagandists like the BBC and CNN the ability to distort – or, as they would have it, ‘explain’ or ‘contextualise’ – what someone else says.

        We have seen two perfect examples of this recently, the first being Boris Johnson’s £350 million article, the second being Pres. Trump’s address to the UN. The very last thing the liberal elite want is riff raff like you or me having access to raw information that they haven’t been able to distort or ‘analyse’ beforehand.

        Armed with their second rate educations and third rate minds, BBC hacks believe they are essential to enable little people like us to ‘make sense of’ the world. Without them there to interpret everything for us, we will make terrible decisions.

        Like leaving the EU. Or electing a government which acts in our interests.

        This is why BBC ‘journalists’ really hate the Internet. It threatens their freedom to lie.

          RT’s CrossTalk had a lot to say about this very recently, and the US’s attempts to have RT designated a “foreign agency”, or something or other (I forget the precise term).

            They are definitely worried and that is what is really behind the ‘crack downs’ on Internet use championed by politicians. It achieves two ends – it persuades the feeble minded that our betters are ‘doing something’ when, of course, they are not and it enables the ‘elite’ to exert yet more control over what we think and do. Tyrants down the ages have always sugared the pill of their tyranny with a coating of ‘for your own good’.

            • Synchronised says:

              This “crack down” has naff all to do with terrorism, extremism or whatever anyone wishes to call it. Its all about stopping middle England’s law abiding citizens having access to information and contact with people that the state believe can undermine them. A classic example is the way the recent protests in Poland, Denmark, France etc. have gone largely unreported. The BBC censors our news intake with the complicity of HMG already so this is just the next step. The Government is hiding behind the terrorist smoke screen to be able to carry out whatever level of censorship they feel they need to keep us silenced. Be in no doubt, the Orwellian future is just around the corner if not upon us already ladies and gentlemen.

                  I think this is also why many media sites remove comment options on articles. Partly, to be fair, it is about libel and the need to monitor abuse, but also I think they don’t like how easy it is for ordinary non-journalists to disprove statements in articles and offer an alternative viewpoint.

                  I think Murdoch dropped Fox as a way to curry favour with the government to let him take over Sky. Fat lot of good it did him, as the bid has been referred to the Competition & Markets Authority.

                  If Murdoch has any sense he will reinstate Fox, as the so-called conservative government will screw him whatever he does.

        In Trump’s press conference just before he was inaugurated the Beeb tried to portray it as chaotic when on reality it was measured, controlled and you got a sense that this was a natural born leader who could achieve great things.

        Of course the Beeb just reported their reporter’s infantile questions about whether he would consider his position because of the farcical piss gate nonsense they had made up. They try to make out he is the unhinged one, whilst they just wanted to focus on an obviously false story rather than the substantive business of running the world’s most powerful country. It was embareasing.

        Yes the internet could well be the greatest ever gift of freedom and liberty. It is effectively a universal First Amendment which is why our leaders hate it so much.

      Provided that the Presidency of the incumbent in the WH can be guaranteed to last at least as long as Roosevelt, I would support the UK becoming the far eastern member of the USA. I would willing pay at least our EU contributions to join. There we have a man who articulates what many of us feel and believe and who recognises that the decades of liberalism has led the West into high danger. At times he may do so in rather lurid and unusual ways and never having been groomed for high office he can and does make the odd blunder . Plus of course his liberal left enemies , almost the entire establishment, are out to get him and exploit every opportunity he gives them. But he is doing what those who voted for him want. We need more like him to stick up for ordinary folks and for the West. Sadly we have no one in this country that comes remotely close.

      North Korea forbids all forms of freedom of expression, political opposition or independent media.

      The country is suffering from a food crisis with mass undernourishment in rural areas, with many starving to death

      An estimated 100,000 North Korean citizens are held in brutal prison camps for those who dare to break the rules

      Torture, forced labour and public executions in the camps are commonplace according to escapees

      Many prisoners are “guilty by association” – ie. if a member of a family is found to have committed a crime, the entire family is imprisoned

      This style of ‘journalism’ is so awful: just get people who support your agenda to comment and build the article around their opinions. It’s so infantile and amateurish. Why not report what was said and leave us to formulate our own opinions? With anything there will be strong opinions for and against. This would be bad enough for a GCSE media studies project but for an organisation with a budget of billions it is disgraceful.

      What about some voices against all the SJW crap they shove down our throats, which the vast majority of people oppose? How many people are sick and tired of being told how to think by professional victims who have no discernible life skills or talents whatsoever? Oh no – that would be ‘hate speech.’ Meanwhile they are free to spew hatred at the leader of our nation’s most important ally.

    Suggestions for the BBC to make programmes about that really show the nation and the world ;

    How the police don’t police anymore, but act as an anti insurrection force against middle class people , and as salesmen for cctv and security apparatus. Something you can get for free from the manufacturers and insurance companies.

    How judges and magistrates are 15 years behind the time and love criminals and have no idea what the criminals think of them .

    What the effect of a ” Hard Brexit” will have on the ordinary people of the 27 other countries, the unemployment , businesses collapsing, loss of revenue, possible world depression for everyone except Barnier , Juncker , Merkel , and EUro elite .

    The Gramscians infiltration of the university’s, police , civil service, teaching, media and especially the good old BBC

    New ways to fund the BBC !

    Real racism in migrants who come here .

    The real cost of immigration .

    The way the senior civil service takes lots of British taxpayers money then acts as though it’s paid by someone else .

    How the police give up on taking action against foreigners who transgress the laws .

    The snooty attitude of the anointed visionaries. ( and do an interview with Thomas Sowell ) .

    Why Donald Trump is right , the swamp needs draining in ALL countries .

And name and shame the millionaires in BBC Towers who DON`T put a fat cheque into the bucket.
      As long as he remembers to bring it home though-if you leave that at the BBC, someone will put some fairy lights in it, and offer it to some rent boy drug pusher type by the end of the show.
      Now-re Mexico-any chance of those vibrant migrants in the USA getting on a plane or the Trump Train , going home to help their fellow nationals after this earthquake? Donald could remove an awful lot of looters and drug dealers from his country AND help the Mexicans get their country back and thriving, with all those exciting and enriching gangs from MS13 etc.

    Panorama featured ‘Germany’s new Nazis’ last night, and I knew exactly who the target would be, given the coming German election, and how they would be discredited. I was not disappointed: the programme started by looking at a group of thuggish young men who, incensed by Merkel’s ILLEGAL opening of German borders, went on the rampage, destroying property and threatening asylum seekers and economic migrants in Freital. (Nobody was killed). Suddenly the real target, the centrist AfD drifted into view, portrayed as a continuation of the Freital mob. I call them centrist because the CDU has drifted to the left under Merkel, and there is a vacuum in the centre, which the AfD is filling.
    There IS in fact a far-right party in Germany (a legal one) which may possibly have some sympathy for the Nazi cause (if proven they would have been banned). It is called the NPD. But Panorama was not after the NPD; it was out to do what all the German media are doing in order to maintain the current cosy, authoritarian consensus: making out that the AfD are Nazis. I call it an authoritarian consensus as the two largest parties are in a coalition and the boss, Mrs Merkel has declared that there is NO ALTERNARTIVE to her policies. (Does that have an anti-democratic ring to it?) Merkel has actually broken many laws and spat on her oath when taking office. But Panorama gleefully reported that the Saxony State Prosecutor was taking action against the ‘far-right’ for …well…er …hmm…wanting to keep Germany essentially German? Disliking a chancellor who views the German constitution with contempt and thinks SHE IS the state?
    And as for the naughty, naughty AfD who think you should have alternatives in politics because of something called democracy, the BBC, unsurprisingly, lost no time bringing out the swastikas. Trust a BBC programme to smear the democratic and peaceful centre in politics; they simply don’t recognise it!

          “…I wonder how many actually know anything of European history and the Nazis?”

          I’m willing to bet far more know something at least about the Nazis than they ever will about the Communists. 30 years of progressive, revisionist education has seen to that. The Nazis (real name: National Socialists – see that trick? It’s the same one progressives played with the Khmer Rouge (real name: Communist Party of Kampuchea (they didn’t ever call themselves the ‘Khmer Rouge’!) have always been promoted by these dissemblers in education as the biggest of ‘big bads’, happy as they are to overlook Communism’s far greater crimes in the 20th century.

          So yeah – that’s how we end up with something vaguely called ‘Nazis’ as some mythical Public Enemy No.1. If you ignore history, just chuck it down the memory hole, forget all about it and pretend it either never happened or somehow wasn’t the real thing we can all live in world where socialism didn’t murder well over 100 million people as it repeatedly strove to achieve a Communist utopia.

          Welcome to history, 2017 – not quite as it happened, but why worry about the details?

    But why? Why is public money going to new religious sites, and not hospitals, schools, transportation? Why is the president of the city of Lisbon publicly supporting this construction (of a Mosque) with Lisbon’s money? No one is asking these questions in the Portuguese mass media, and even our right-wing Catholic politicians remain silent. {gatesofvienna.net 20sep2017}

    Simultaneously, something happened this month to our immigration laws. Now it is much easier to obtain a legal permit to stay in Portugal (Sweden-style, basically). In just one week since the law went into effect, we have 1300% more immigration requests per week compared with the previous law: 4,037 permits in a single week! Source (in Portuguese)

    The BBC tell us that Emir Khan of the Londonistan Caliphate has said that islamic radicalisation is only taking place through the internet and that is (he is quoted as saying), “the only game in town” (“all part and parcel” no doubt). So, clearly the Emir ignores the influence of the islamic cult handbook, the quaran which is littered with hatred toward the kuffar i.e. you and me and equally importantly, all of the islamic cult preachers who one presumes to suddenly be no longer preaching hatred of us on our soil. Always good to know. You have to agree, its takiyya at its best although totally transparent.

    Can I be the first to predict what will be coming re the Parsons Green bomb plot?
    Martha Kearney is the leaky sieve,the dumb waitress of BBC buffets, soon to be placed before us.
    She and her boy Danny Shaw said this
    1. Our 18 year old man/child/other was on a radicalisation programme waiting list
    2. He`s Syrian and both his parents died in 2015, so here he is.
    I gather we`ll now be asked to condemn the Prevent Clearing and Assessment Service for not processing this poor orphan quickly enough-this will be due to Torikutz.

    Funny this-don`t remember poor Thomas Mair getting all this mint tea and sympathy about his meds, anger management courses being full or irregular-or any troubled life he alleged for his narrative, as dreamet up by Martha and her muffins.

    Martha did of course ask the Mexico City bloke how many bodies had been counted-and would he be a dear and give us his projected number of dead we can look forward to?-that preferably eye-catching enough for Eddie Mair at 5pm?
    Wonder if Tommy and Eddie were separated at birth? I would argue that Eddie does more damage to the national cohesion quilt than did poor Tom.
    Martha is thick, but gauche enough to be the bleeding heart of BBC news…imagine our bucket boy only misplaced a fuse on the Christmas tree lights that he was fixing for his dear old foster mum?
    Bless.

        Help me with this GCooper. What is the question over the gun? I know the police cannot establish how he got it

           8 likes

        • GCooper says:

          There are a lot of very murky theories surrounding the murder of Jo Cox and undoubtedly there are questions that are not being asked. Unless you are connected to serious criminals, guns are still not easy to come by in this country, whether manufactured or, as Mair was said to have used, home made. Mair was mentally unstable, not a criminal, so where did that gun come from? And do we really know why he selected the unfortunate Mrs Cox as his target?

          A properly run news organisation would have moved heaven and earth to get answers to these questions. Which rules out the BBC, of course, which habitually avoids asking questions it doesn’t wish to have answered (how did Kevin Crehan die being another, glaring, example).

          • Rob in Cheshire says:

            The gun Mair used was was a sawn-off .22 rifle which had been stolen from its rightful owner the year before.

            It seems the police have completely failed to trace its history in the time between it being stolen and turning up in Mair’s possession.

            Mair was a quiet and law-abiding man, albeit suffering from mental health problems. We have no idea what turned him into a gun toting murderer, much less where he got the gun from. As you said, unless you are part of the criminal scene, which he was not, you would not know where to get a black market gun.

            Apart from the fact that Mair killed Jo Cox, we know almost nothing about why he did it or where he got the weapon. It goes down as just another of those “lone nut” assassinations which we are not meant to ask questions about.

            The fact that the murder of Jo Cox exactly one week before the referendum halted the growing momentum for the No vote, and almost changed the result of the referendum, and thus the course of British history, is evidently just one of those things.

    A story of two Iraqi child refugees.

    In Germany a 16 year old girl, who the BBC call an Iraqi refugee, hands in a bag found on a train to the police. The bag contains 14,000 Euros. The BBC make a story out of it declaring her a hero and promote their story to their homepage with the headline: “Refugee praised for handing in £12k left on subway“.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/
    The report itself is headlined: “Iraqi refugee in Berlin praised for handing over cash find
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-41332143

    Note that the BBC have taken a minor foreign news story, and have headlined it and promoted it in order to push their own agenda – hence leading the story with the headline “refugee” and “Iraqi refugee”.

    Now that is a very minor story plucked from obscurity. However there has been an Iraqi Refugee at the centre of a MAJOR story – the recent London Train Bombing. The 18 year old at the centre of this story is an Iraqi Refugee in Britain.

    Except here there are no BBC headlines containing the words “Refugee” or “Iraqi Refugee”. In fact it is very difficult to find any information on him inside the actual BBC reports such is the BBC endeavour to HIDE this central fact. Try finding this fact anywhere In this latest BBC report on the London Train Bombing. The best the BBC can do is come up with the following line buried in the story “He is thought to have moved to the UK from Iraq aged 15 when his parents died
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41332867

    Our wonderful impartial Office Of National Statistics, (the lot that critcised Boris’ EU numbers without reading his article), tells us that Oliver is the most popular name for new-born boys in England and Wales.

    What about Mo? Well he comes in at a mere number 8 as ‘Muhammad’ and then makes another appearance and number 31 as ‘Mohammed’ and also at number 68 as ‘Mohammad’.

    Arguably ‘Ollie’, (69), is a variant of ‘Oliver’ and ‘Charles’ , (72), is a variant of ‘Charlie’ and Tommy (57) is a variant of Thomas.

    So the Top Ten should be:

    1. Oliver/Ollie 7546
    2. Muhammad/Mohammed/Mohammad 6084
    3. Harry 5284
    4. George 5263

    Very good speech by Victor Orban ( find it on Gates of Vienna and others ). No coverage worth a light from our useless MSM. A proper European speech in defence of European values and no wonder the EU apparatchniks loathe him. He is a committed European but just not the variety approved of by the BBC and Brussels.
    The divide now in Europe is between the immigrant ( non European ones) welcoming states and the states that believe in the ancient civilisation of Europe and have no intention of giving it up to please Soros and the EU .
    The divide looks pretty unbridgeable and does rather throw a new light on Brexit . I doubt the remainers of the BBc will want to examine this at all.

Interestingly, Mr Orban blames the current situation partly on western intervention in Islamic countries, which should endear him to the BBC! I have reservations about Mr Orban – he has some rather odd ideas about governance and seems to have a liking for ‘crony capitalism’ – but overall he comes across as one of the few intelligent, visionary leaders in Europe. Someone like Merkel seems unlikely to have the intellectual capacity to make such a speech.

    Anybody who has an interest in Sport will know the BBC have been running a hate campaign against the England manager of the Women’s National Football team – name of Mark Sampson. For his sins he is white and he is a man. He also happens to have been the most successful English manager of the Women’s Football team.

    Anyway a former player who happens to be trained as a lawyer I believe has been running complaints against him – claiming he was racist. Mark Sampson has been cleared of racism by two investigations – but that wasn’t good enough for the BBC – they have been running daily stories on him.

    Anyway it seems Mark Sampson has finally decided he can’t take the harassment any longer from the BBC, allied media, and vicious feminist anti-racist groups – so he has decided to resign. The BBC immediately make this their LEADING story on their UK News section, the Sports News section, the Football News section, the Women’s Football News section. It is also currently their third news item on the BBC homepage, and the second news item on their News homepage. Talk about the BBC breaking out the champagne and pleasuring themselves to this outcome.

      Stew, is that ‘asking price’ or ‘actual sale price’?

      This needs to be looked at in the round: less people are learning to drive, especially the young. People in large cities are giving up their cars. Car purchase methods are changing. Car use, overall, is falling. UK road miles, despite massive increase in taxi use, delivery traffic, construction lorries and bus traffic, only relatively recently recovered (2015) from before the 2007-2009 crash.

      There is more. Increasingly, countries around the globe are announcing the end of oil-distilled liquid fuels for transport, China being the latest.

      Then there is the oil price. Brent Crude is up 25% in less than three months. If it keeps going at that rate, car use will fall further. More will transition to hybrids. A friend of mine showed me his ‘new’ one on Monday. 70mpg. He loves it.

      The snowball has been rolled. It will only ever grow in the months and years to come.

          Stew, it is up 25% – that’s a quarter – in just over two months. At that pace, it will be up near $100 p/b before winter is over and a seasonal decline starts. (I don’t think it will go as high as that unless something exceptional happens.)

          You have seen the positive effect on the UK economy when the oil price declined and then went off a cliff from its peak. $135 p/b was it? Down to $40 and the UK economy started to thrive.

          Residuals were always important in the old days of car purchase. Now they are bought differently, they are even more important to the market and they look as though they will start to collapse over the next seven to eight years. Seven to eight years take us to 2025/26. One third of the way to 2040 and no more new oil-distil fuel cars. Who is going to buy a petrol- or diesel-fuelled car in 2032/33?

          You have to look at this in the round. All aspects. Take buses. London. Biggest bus fleet and miles. There are increasing numbers of LPG, other gas and hybrid buses on the road in Greater London. Conventional electric is on the way. I will be very surprised if new electric buses do not incorporate p-v cells in the roofs soon. Same for vans. Photo-voltaic cells will go on improving and getting cheaper. That’s another snowball to grow and grow.

          Then there are the politicians. They are wedded to AGW/CC and the Paris Climate Concord. They cannot back down on that now. They will increase restrictions, not reduce them, on oil-distil fuel cars.

          I’m a ‘petrol-head’ just like you but I’m an economic realist and, in reality now, an economist.

          The Death Sentence of oil was signed this year. Unless, of course, some other dramatic factor or factors arise.

          Stop whistling in the dark!

    Lauren also says she’s disappointed she labelled herself as bisexual when she came out, insisting that she is “a free spirit”. “It’s good to be an anarchist and just love yourself. That’s the most rebellious thing you can do right now.”
    “People still talk [rubbish],” she says.


    – Bi-sexual, free spirit, anarchist, self loving, rebellious
    – Anarchist – A person who believes in or tries to bring about anarchy.
    – Anarchism is a political philosophy that advocates self-governed societies based on voluntary institutions.

    Up,
    Hezza is probably scheming for Blighty to fail outside the eu and joining the euro will be one of the costs of rejoining in a few years. Hopefully some civil war will have taken place in one of the 27 so the overall situation will have changed by then. I just hope if such an event occurs we don’t get involved like 1914 and 1939. We gained nothing out of either apart from a sick high horse and a seat on the UN security council .

    I am taking the liberty of re-posting this from earlier, by ‘Broadcasting’.
    It is symptomatic of the thousand ways the mendacious beebistan deceives. Not usually with outright lies, too easily refuted, but with small ‘dissimulations’; by magnifying some stories while minimising others; by omitting small details or emphasising others; by elisions. The unwary reader /viewer would not notice these sleights of hand, which is why it’s so important they be exposed again and again. In this case the hidden agenda is to present ‘refugees’ in the best possible light, while minimising the fact that some become terrorists.
    And one small detail: the ‘refugees’ in question took 2 days between finding the bag and handing it in. They didn’t exactly rush to do the right thing, it seems.

    A story of two Iraqi child refugees.
    In Germany a 16 year old girl, who the BBC call an Iraqi refugee, hands in a bag found on a train to the police. The bag contains 14,000 Euros. The BBC make a story out of it declaring her a hero and promote their story to their homepage with the headline: “Refugee praised for handing in £12k left on subway“.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/
    The report itself is headlined: “Iraqi refugee in Berlin praised for handing over cash find”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-41332143
    Note that the BBC have taken a minor foreign news story, and have headlined it and promoted it in order to push their own agenda – hence leading the story with the headline “refugee” and “Iraqi refugee”.
    Now that is a very minor story plucked from obscurity. However there has been an Iraqi Refugee at the centre of a MAJOR story – the recent London Train Bombing. The 18 year old at the centre of this story is an Iraqi Refugee in Britain.
    Except here there are no BBC headlines containing the words “Refugee” or “Iraqi Refugee”. In fact it is very difficult to find any information on him inside the actual BBC reports such is the BBC endeavour to HIDE this central fact. Try finding this fact anywhere In this latest BBC report on the London Train Bombing. The best the BBC can do is come up with the following line buried in the story “He is thought to have moved to the UK from Iraq aged 15 when his parents died”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41332867
    This is yet another blatant example of the BBC bias in action.

      Hi Charles Martel – Just to add, I am beginning to move away from the idea that the BBC is biased. What the BBC are doing is stronger than bias – it is agenda setting. The BBC act more like a campaigning organisation pushing several agendas and they select, distort and misreport in order to push those agendas.

      The apotheosis of this was when they ran a story on a ‘Muslim’ being wrongly questioned by US immigration, then when he committed a sexual offence he had become an ‘Indian’ in the Beeb’s story.

      It’s like in Harry Potter where nobody dare mention the name Voldemort. Now when there is a terror attack the ‘I’ and ‘M’ words are never used.

        ML is one of those critics of the BBC from the basis it is not left enough, and/or a government stooge.

        Hence the ‘awks’, as there are many within the BBC who share the first belief and as for the second see it as a good or bad thing depending on which party is in power.

        I find their friendly fire interesting, especially when it is so overt and makes BBC high command dissembling hard to sustain.

        They also have a knack for pulling out factual evidence where the BBC is simply unprofessional and agenda driven that lays bare the daft notion they get things about right by failing truth or accuracy everywhere.

        Sadly, most on the left recognise that the BBC serves their cause too well to sacrifice, but ML’s chipping might serve to make some capable of logic feel it is a compromised resource.

    Standing on a city street corner waiting for a bus can be more risky than you think, especially if you and your child are dressed in a black burka in an attempt to practice your muslim customs and beliefs.
    Iska Corey and her daughter Iskatoon, age 10 were simply waiting for local bus 56 on the corner of Deerborn Avenue and Mulberry Court when a nearsighted municipal trash collector stepped off the garbage truck and promptly threw a surprised Iska and Iskatoon into the trash dumpster bin at the rear of the truck, two other black garbed objects were hastilly thrown in on top of them before they could yell for help.
    It wasn’t until almost a dozen stops later that trash collector Bwanai Mogotobo, age 66, noticed movement and an arm waving in the pile of refuse. He immediately stopped the truck helping a very irate Iska out of the stinking garbage pile. Mogotobo was placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by the city. The two women were taken to Ali Baba Islamic Hospital for a complete examination and later released.
    Mogotobo, who has been with the city for 44 years, said he’s seen nothing like it before. “Now, I once threw a hippie in the trash back in 1972 for smelling like a turd pile, but this surprised me!”
    A local CAIR representative filed a complaint with the city citing ‘severe Islamaphobia’ and reckless endangerment. The city has offered to issue poka-dotted garbage bags so future mistakes can’t happen.
    Iska and her daughter were unhurt and the city has offered to reimburse their dry cleaner for any expenses. According to Iska it was ‘Allah’s will’ that escaped unharmed and vows never to stand next to any trash bags again.

    Would you ever have voted for a, possibly unlimited, number of violent people from a murderous religion who hate the British being allowed into the UK?

    In the UK we always have several million unemployed, ugly, lazy, stupid, workshy, criminally-inclined white
