Is there any difference between Afua Hirsch and Hitler?  Both advocates of racial purity,  both using race as a weapon to further their own political aims and those of their own race.  It’s a shame that just about the only black ‘role models’ people see on the BBC or read in the Guardian are the race baiters like Hirsch whose sole aim it would seem is to create a race war, to set up a ‘them and us’ scenario so that Blacks only think of themselves as victims and the only way to be successful is to ‘be black’ [ironically…Britain is racist so be even more ‘black’ to beat the racism!] and to separate themselves from ‘white’ society blaming that for any or all of their problems.   The BBC continues to play its very dangerous game of sensationalising race and giving platforms to people who are not acting in the best interests of black people and are quite happy to stir up racial division and conflict, constantly abusing white people and ‘white’ society in their own racist way because that is how they make a living…writing or broadcasting about race problems, no problems then nothing to write about, no money, no ego-boosting media appearances….problems they have invented or indeed generated themselves…..just like the old joke about the newspaper editor starting a war to sell more  newspapers…only in this case it’s not a joke,  it’s all too real and the BBC aids and abets in that.

List the bias here…..

    The Guardian – so it must be true – is making much of the news that a secret Commonwealth cabal are discussing the next Head, the post not being hereditary, apparently if surprisingly.
    This could well prove the last straw for Charles, finally tipping him into the Georgian madness endemic to his line. But there could be an explanation. Since the Commonwealth is predominantly Christian, Charles’ enthusiastic support and eagerness to embrace islam and empathise with the religion of peace just might encourage the search for an alternative.
    And might the BBC sniff out the link? Unlikely.

      Anyone who doubts the state-funded drive for a gender and racial mashup in the population needs to watch the intro to the full Newsbeat version. In the first two and a half minutes, there were seven couples shown:

      – White man; black woman
      – Black woman; white man
      – Homosexual couple (white)
      – Homosexual couple (white)
      – Homosexual couple (Hispanic/Latino)
      – White man; black woman
      – Muslim couple

      There does seem to be a white heterosexual couple cut into the edit — it’s about a second long… and the man is shown crying into his handkerchief.

    Lovely pic of Ford Escort Mexico on BBC Home Page, in profile, bright yellow, to celebrate 50 years of the Ford Escort.

    50 years, BBC? Wrong picture, surely. Are you two and a bit years early for the Escort Mexico? And a bit late for a 50 year celebration of the first prototypes AND production models, of the standard Mk.1, which were available and on the road at the end of 1967. The car was announced by Ford earlier in 1967.

    I will read the article but memory tells me the Mexico was a limited edition vehicle from Ford after their success in the London – Mexico City World Cup Rally of 1970.

    BBC, you are very concerned about people being deceived by FakeNews and FalseNews from the media. Are you not guilty here – yet again – of producing FakeNews and FalseNews yourselves? Remember the Ritula Shah Standard, set for the BBC? It is 100% accuracy.

    BBC trans-only podcast
    Ostensibly the new brand “unpopped” is supposed to be about pop culture, but they chose to make the first episode be a panel of trans discussing drag queens, with a straight presenter.
    – “Trannie” is apparently a forbidden word like the P & N words
    – a BioQueen is a woman who dresses up as a man dressing up as a woman.

      There seem to be so many gender variations these days it’s getting confusing.
      There’s the boring run of the mill male and female (I’m safe there). Then we’ve got male to female trans-sexuals. Then, of course there has to be female to male trans-sexuals. There are A sexuals and bi sexuals and now we’ve got folk who don’t want to be “gender defined.” These people can become offended if you use a gender pronoun to describe them. Jesus H Christ, don’t we have enough problems already?
      It’s comforting to hear that at a time of maximum terrorist alert GCHQ are on the ball… Blimey, they must have more bogs than Dartmoor.
      And don’t forget even back in the 80’s, good old James Bond seems to have been ahead of the game.

      So that none of us should inadvertently write, say or think any of said “extremist words” I would suggest that in fairness it is incumbent upon H.M. Government to publish a full list of these “extremist ” words along with a clear definition of each word and post them on every lamp post, telegraph pole and hoarding in the land, and a copy of which should be made available free of charge in all Post Offices, libraries and railway stations. This could free up a lot of valuable police resources and would over time, reduce the number of white, male political prisoners in our jails. Oh yes and perhaps we could cancel all pending trials relating to these terrible, incriminating words.

    Here at Morrison Towers we are embarking on a new and exciting Equalities and Diversity project. We seek staff from all over – well except white British males of course and we are none too keen on the Irish – oh and while we are about it – don’t bring the dog.

    Disgusting, right! Yet on March 17 the Labour party is selling tickets for an “Equalities” conference only to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnics (BAME), disabled, LGBT and people who “self identify” as a woman. If you are white and male, you are not invited. Go and watch the footie or something where our co-partner the BBC will provide an expert panel of female commentators to explain the offside rule for you. Of course telling the white British male to get stuffed is nothing out of the ordinary in our Brave New World Order Where We Are Fricking Well In Charge (BNWOWWAFWIC).

    The Labour Party is only following the example of the BBC, which recently advertised a journalism post to people of a “non-white” background. Similar, one might observe, to ads in the past that specified “no dogs, no blacks, no Irish”.

    Were there not laws passed in the recent past that stopped all this appalling racism? Or was I just dreaming – maybe they don’t apply to today’s social justice warriors. As I have commented before – what in the name of the sweet baby Jesus asleep in his manger is the Labour party up to. Last time I looked it needed to pile up all those white male votes to have any chance of returning to power. Maybe it has forgotten they have the vote, since it failed to mark in any significant way that full male enfranchisement was achieved 100 years ago. Thought I read something about it last week – something to do with the women I recall.

    Why it’s enough to turn you to conspiracy theories. Do they have other plans to return to power? – I think we should be told.

    There is going to be an inquest at the end of this year.

    This is a long time between a death and an inquest. But then, no one in the media gives a shit about him or his family.

    I will now wear my conspiracy theorist cloak and predict a whitewash where no one is to be blamed in any way for his death.
    I will add that this whitewash will be the result of collusion between the Government, Prison authorities, the Judiciary and the media.

    This could have been Tommy Robinson’s fate.
    The question is will someone outside the clique break ranks and tell?

    I doubt it as the authorities have learnt that secrecy can be maintained even when dozens of people are involved. Hence the success in covering up numerous examples – many cited here – of car rammings and knife attacks on innocent bystanders.

    Anyone else listen to the “Spoken Word ” on R4 this afternoon.
    I missed the beginning but today it was obsessed with “transgender” terms.
    We had someone called “Lester ” who was one of the guests and the general thrust of the programme was that these terms are all easy to understand and we should all use them now.
    Then we were battered with an avalanche of talk about – non binary, gender queer, cis gender, ultra gender, etc etc – as if it really matters! I think you get the drift with the genial host sounding confused but trying to be interested. Apparently for some reason “Lester” said the correct form of address for he/sh/cis was to refer to he/she/cis as they?
    Geddit – me neither!
    I have not heard for a long time such confected, attention seeking, self obsessed rubbish. If our lawmakers and institutions are having to waste time and money on indulging such bilge no wonder we are in such a mess.
    However I think broadcasting this sort of tripe is all the BBC is any good for these days.

      She said that the ANC government insists that no more than 8% of any industry’s workforce should be white – to reflect their percentage of the population. In practice, this means that many skilled and experienced whites are losing their jobs and are being replaced with unskilled blacks. This is resulting in chaos, electricity outages, lack of maintenance, long delays, etc.. South Africa is falling apart.

      I have gone on about the stupidity of this idea before so I won’t bore you with it again. I guess the BBC would say that if you criticise this stupid policy of the ANC you are criticising black people and you are therefore racist. Just as if you criticise Nicola Sturgeon for wanting 50% of MSPs to be women you must be sexist. No. Getting the best people to do the job – whoever they are – is always the best policy for any society.

      Asia yes sometimes there is a an issue directly affecting see life , and proper waste control should be organised

    The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Vulnerability, Safeguarding and Countering Extremism, Victoria Atkins, Conservative MP for Louth & Horncastle has been accused of perpetuating “blatant untruths” which were “riddled with inaccuracies” at a recent debate on Britain’s drug policy in Westminster Hall, the government’s own website confirms that Atkins is responsible for drug policy. She has previously said that she does not “share the optimism of others about tackling the problem through regulation.”…. hmmm
    while Victoria Atkins MP rallies against further regulation and legalisation of drugs and outright rejects regulation as a method of harm reduction … her husband grows FORTY FIVE acres of cannabis under a government licence, making her a direct beneficiary of the government regulation already in place.

    PaulM draws our attention to a recent complaint made about a fake climate change news headline on Radio 4. The headline stated that the human impact on climate temperatures dwarfed all natural processes. In reply the climate change activist, sorry BBC, noted that this was the view of the Met Office’s acting director Peter Stott.

    This would appear to be the same Peter Stott who today amended his cv on the Met’s web site to remove the fake reference to being a “co-recipient” of a Nobel Prize. The move followed recent general hilarity around the internet.

      The real omission is the burial of all the paedophile activity within Oxfam. Shagging a few toms by understandably stressed and deprived males far from home may not chime well with the sistas, but it’s not exactly a capital offence. On the other hand the elephant in the room is that the charity world is a prime environment for those looking to save a few children for later, and that is Penny Mordaunt’s true remit – and I think she’s got the balls to do it, too.

    Not my favourite fare for a breakfast news story but BBC tv are keen to give me their choice of highlights from the trial of this former football coach from the north west of England.

    There are details the BBC does not convey – not that I’m particularly keen to look into this case. I am struck by reference to ‘young men’ as the target of the abuse. No ages were given by the BBC and when the BBC skips a detail I fear the editorial choice is deliberate and made for reasons of agenda. Does the lack of age detail mean young people classed as children under the law in fact refers to those our left wing political parties would wish to reward with the vote?

    Another quote from the case the BBC are keen to bring to our attention this morning is the accusation that this nasty individual’s abusive actitivity was “on an industrial scale”‘

    Not sure how appropriate that claim is in reality. In contrast the muslim immigrant grooming gangs in many of our northern towns were on an industrial scale with multiple offending men and with both monetary and sexual motives – and perhaps even anti-white racial undertones. This football coach is really just a sole trader or a cottage industry at most.

    Every big company is going to be based there and not in Blighty. The French life style is so much better than ours or any one else.

    I have to admit it was so anti Brexit, so and British that I couldn’t believe my ears . In the face of this propaganda it’s a wonder that any one still believes in Brexit . It is perhaps on the upside an indication that al Beeb isn’t as influential as it thinks.

      One thing though, with their large and growing percentage of moslems amongst them, their problems will increase, as the percentage increases.
      And Napoleon is going to legislate to control and reform Islam?

After feeling mildly perplexed listening to the story, suddenly all the boxes were ticked and it all made perfect Lefty BBC sense. I wasn’t sure if it was a man who had become a woman or a woman who had become a man, though. He sounded like a man but I’ve had diversity training and I know I shouldn’t rely on traditional methods of identification.

        The BBC should be careful with this stuff. After the mountain of anti-police lies that were propagated about Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin by Black Lives Matter and the Leftist media, it would probably be best to ensure that there is pretty good evidence of an injustice before broadcasting this kind of item.

      I noted no opposing view of what happened and the circumstances surrounding his brothers shooting. Strange that. Perhaps his brother presented himself at the garage all ‘gobby’ and appearing inclined to be violent as these people invariably are. If the BBC had done their job properly, they would have pointed out the black crime statistics in the US. I can’t even say, “coming to a town or city near you soon” as Londonistan is now plagued by the same problems on the back of, ‘celebrating diversity’.

    The disgraceful links between the BBC and the Far Leftist so called ‘Charity’ Oxfam:

    An examination of the massive conglomerate’s chairman, former BBC high-flyer Caroline Thomson, is a key to its nature.

    Her Christianity-free, jargon-driven multi-national empire derives half its income from government funds – predominantly the EU, a raft of agencies of the UN and the British and Swedish governments. It is not, therefore, truly a ‘charity’ at all, but an arm of the burgeoning global governance and rights industry.

    And who is Ms Thomson? Her background speaks volumes about the organisation and aspirations of the enterprise she chairs.

    She began her career as a BBC trainee in 1975 and rose – via a spell as political adviser to arch-Europhile Roy Jenkins – to become the Corporation’s chief operating officer. In 2012, she was granted a £670,000 pay-off when George Entwistle thwarted her bid to become director general.

    Her credentials for her roles with the BBC and now Oxfam are exactly as might be expected. She is the daughter of the late Lord Thomson of Monifieth, a Labour peer, the UK’s first European Commissioner and later chairman of the former television regulatory body, the Independent Broadcasting Authority. Her husband of more than 40 years is the Labour peer Roger Liddle, who was Tony Blair’s special adviser on European policy, and then moved to the European Commission in a similar role under Jose Manuel Barroso, its then president. His Lordship currently heads a think tank on EU policy and has written a book with Peter Mandelson.

    Neither of the Liddles, it could be deduced, would vote Tory or UKIP. Ms Thomson joined the Trustees of Oxfam in March 2017 – adding to a clutch of similar roles – and assumed the chairmanship in October. Did she conduct due diligence?

    A brief visit to the charity’s website reveals the doctrinaire Leftist propaganda within. There are hundreds of documents on ‘equality’ (code for anti-capitalist), climate change and ‘women’s empowerment’ (though rarely in Muslim countries, of course). Treatises and projects tackling corruption, providing cheap energy, entrepreneurship and sound business administration are strangely much harder to find.

    Maybe someone who had worked at the BBC would find these Oxfam doctrines exactly to their taste. And maybe, because such goals are felt by those who uphold them to be the beyond-reproach ‘higher good’, Ms Thomson did not delve much further into how Oxfam staff conducted themselves in places such as Haiti and Chad, and in the UK’s so-called charity shops.

    While at the BBC, Ms Thomson was deputy director of the World Service, whose charity and aid-sector arm is now known as Media Action. Its current boss? That will be Caroline Nursey, who before she assumed her current role was a director (in several different areas of responsibility) at – of course – Oxfam.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediaaction/about/management-and-trustees/caroline-nursey

    I joined BBC Media Action from Oxfam GB in March 2009. I had rotated through a number of Director-level roles at Oxfam that enabled me to work both in the UK and in the field, and the work was enormously rewarding. But when I was approached about the opportunity to become Executive Director at BBC Media Action my ears pricked up

    I first came into contact with BBC Media Action through the work I was part of in Darfur with Oxfam.

    Although it is shocking to find yet another revolving door between the BBC and far leftist money tree organisations it is sadly unsurprising. The only solution is to privatise this monster, and there’s no way Blue Labour are going to do that.
