Start the Week Open Thread 20 August 2018

Every so often the Far Left claims that the BBC has ‘Right Wing Bias’ but never follows up with clear evidence of that assertion .

But as a Twitter follower I notice more and more beeboids expressing politic views ( always anti brexit and always pro Left) but stating the views are not those of the BBC .

So if these employees of the BBC can use their position to influence others on Social Media – how does the BBC claim to be neutral ?

It’s time to make a new list of these people who use tax payers money to further personal views .

    A couple of days ago Dawn Butler, Labour’s shadow equalities minister, accused Jamie Oliver of “cultural appropriation” because he didn’t get the ingredients of his jerk chicken recipe to her liking.

    The BBC now have this story on their hourly news bulletins.

    Exactly why Ms Butler thinks she has the right to even bring the matter up in the first place is a mystery – she may be black but she was born in London, a long way from Jamaica.

    And while we’re at it Ms Butler, what do you think you are doing using the name Dawn? That is an English name and I accuse you of cultural appropriation of the worst kind by pretending to be a white English woman.

    What’s more the meaning of the name Dawn is “the first appearance of light, daybreak.”……… are anything but.

      • Dover Sentry says:

        There’s a bit of wig appropriation going on there!


      • Fedup2 says:

        Labour doesn’t allow Red Dawn to do too many real interviews views with the likes of Brillo because she is not the sharpest Knife in the box – having previously being a tick box on the GLA – oxygen waster at best .

        The idea of “cultural appropriation “ is , I suppose , a new weapon in the racial war against whitee.


      • StewGreen says:

        @Roland it’s info from posts like yours that make this site such good value …compared to the constant disinformation we get from the BBC itself.


    • Jeff says:

      All this utter guff about “cultural appropriation” is ludicrous. It’s always moaning minorities, egged on by guilt ridden white lefties (BBC!) that believe they have had something unique and important stolen from them.
      They might like to ponder what the planet would be like without the much maligned male pale and stale persons of the human race.
      Without the white man there would be no computers, televisions, railways, cars, planes, antibiotics, telephones. Without the European heritage man there would no books worth reading and hardly any music worthy of the name. And you wouldn’t be able to listen to it anyway because it was a white man that invented the gramophone and the radio. The list is endless.
      White folk don’t tend to blather endlessly about cultural appropriation. We don’t mind sharing what we have given the world.
      Perhaps next time Dawn Butler starts to gripe about jerk chicken (FFS) she might like to consider eating her grub off a filthy floor in a mud hut.
      She lives, I take it, in a house with running water, drainage and heating. All of it thought of, developed and made by white men.
      Does she mind culturally appropriating those things?
      Thought not!


      • BRISSLES says:

        Yes Jeff, I always give a wry smile when seeing images in India and Pakistan at the state of their railway stations and public buildings – clearly built during the years of the Raj, when no doubt they were maintained and kept up to scratch. Now, they haven’t seen a lick of paint since their much wanted Independence back in the 40’s, – or perhaps they’re unable to get a perfect match for the pale blue and peeling distemper that adorns those buildings.

        Syd Little perfectly summed it up, when he attempted to use the toilet on one of their trains (Retirement in the Hotel Marigold series)……. “ooooooh that’s putrid”. Those 3rd world countries will never change despite the money thrown at them. The population has no concept of hygiene (though saying that, neither have the Romanians who defecate on our streets), and like Africa there is too much governmental corruption.


        • G says:

          “…..seeing images in India……at the state of their railway stations….”
          But, but, but see the Indian space programme………


          • BRISSLES says:

            My sentiments exactly G. Can afford a f…… space programme with the overseas aid money we’re throwing at them !

            They wanted Independence, yet now, like Africa, we’re bombarded with adverts begging for money / Action Aid/Water Aid/ Save the Children/ on and on and on.

            How ironic, that is, ‘ get out of our country, we don’t want you to rule us, but we’ll have your money, thank you very much’.


      • LastChanceSaloon says:

        J. “Cultural appropriation”
        Most African exports are extracted from the earth, where they would have lain forever, without European physics, chemistry, geology, engineering and technology.

        Ditto the oil rich states elsewhere.

        So Butler can stop worrying, her people have SFA of any intellectual value for us, or anybody else, to appropriate. Which they know, which is why they hate us.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Mark Mardell (who is no stranger to plates full of food) covered this on TWatO today.

      How long is it since ‘fusion cuisine’ was all the rage?

      Auntie’s memory is very, very, poor. I fear that dementia is now entrenched at W1a.


    • Payne by name says:

      I liked the way (or rather didn’t ) she barked out the order in her tweet ‘that this appropriation had to stop’.

      Who the hell does she think she is telling people what they can and can’t do. Sounds rather fascist like to me.


      • LastChanceSaloon says:

        Try the Guardian. Nearly all headlines contain “Must”.
        “The UK must build eighty million new houses for aliens who hate us, to occupy. If this not enough thirty million white people must move into a shoe box in the middle of the road”.


  3. pugnazious says:

    The BBC has been blitzing us with news that a ‘private’ prison run by G4S has been taken over by government….this, Nick Robinson told us, ‘shows that private prisons don’t work’. The BBC constantly refers to the fact that it is a privately run prison.

    Oddly when prison’s minister, Rory Stewart, was on last week saying he would resign if the 10 targeted ‘most challenging’ prisons didn’t improve the BBC failed to mention that these prisons were all government run prisons, something Robinson also failed to mention this morning. He also failed to mention that Oakwood Prison, run by G4S, was highly praised by HMIP…as reported by the BBC last week. A few days later and the BBC seem to have forgotten what HMIP said….

    ‘Courageous leadership, excellent peer-led initiatives and outstanding management of learning and skills provision are highlighted in the “tremendously encouraging” inspection report of G4S-managed HM Prison Oakwood, released by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) today.’

    So 10 publicly run prisons are failing badly, one privately one is failing very badly, and at least one privately run prison is run extremely well…and the BBC pushes a narrative that privately run prisons are the problem.

    Agenda from the BBC? No coincidence that Labour are peddling the same line about private prisons…as indeed Robinson mentioned this morning. No wonder he didn’t feel the need to go and work for Labour when they tried to headhunt him…he knew he’d do a better job promoting them whilst working at the all powerful and trusted BBC.

    Measles cases hit record high across Europe

    The WHO has been desperately trying to convince us that measles is eliminated…but the figures just aren’t playing ball.
    So now, the figures are ‘astounding’, surging, and
    ‘Experts blame this surge in infections on a drop in the number of people being vaccinated.’
    Which people? Why now? We were doing so well…it was eliminated in 2017! What happened?
    They just can’t mention the elephant in the room, and this isn’t the only communicable disease which is on the rise. Just today’s newsbite.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Another third world import eh?


      • G says:

        Fed, we should celebrate the diversity and the little gifts the invaders bring to us.
        Meeny meeny miny mo: death by measles (or whatever) or rammed (in a motoring “accident”)? What’s Treezers advice?


    • JamesArthur says:

      Its just like the increase in TB which was virtually eradicated in the UK – until it started appearing in – well blow me down – the tight knit groups of Asians (as the BBC) ..but of course the BBC and left just said it is because they are in poverty and we need to do more…
      This Year on TB
      Marieke van der Werf, head of TB disease at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, said: “The rise in drug resistance is definitely a threat for the whole of Europe because people are mobile. You see people coming from other countries and bringing drug resistance with them. All countries need to be vigilant.”

      There are a couple of huge elephants in many rooms waiting to S..t on us…


  5. JamesG says:

    Will the BBC be reporting on this?

    “South Africa begins seizing white-owned farms

    South Africa has targeted the first two farms for unilateral seizure after the owners refused an offer of one-tenth of the land’s value.”


  6. Sluff says:

    BBC glorying in the G4S failures at Birmingham Prison.
    Amid the self righteous indignation, here we have an example that quite often in the private sector there is accountability in the form of poorly serviced customers taking their business elsewhere. And quite right too. It’s called competition.

    Whereas in the BBC and the rest of the public sector, failure is ignored and/or swept under the carpet, and those responsible are usually promoted!!!! But accountability, err, no.


  7. Sluff says:

    Now on BBC news, a focus on black actor Idris Elba, the narrative being opportunities for black people in acting.
    It looks to me like he has been quite successful on his own.
    Agenda, agenda, agenda from the Beeb morons.


    • flake says:

      there’s a shortage of nurses in the NHS so maybe opportunities for black people there? why focus on something as niche and unimportant as acting?

    We have BBC news wetting themselves about the release of Yardie. ….
    . Set in ’70s Kingston and ’80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood,..

    Why aren’t the BBC reporting on the situation in Venezuela?

    Apparently the situation there is so bad that their version of Who Want’s To Be A Millionaire has had to be scrapped because a million of their currency is now worth the equivalent of just a few hundred pounds.


  13. Fedup2 says:

    I think you’ll find this morning it was worth 6pence but now after revaluation. It might be as much as 12 p. The real issue is the borders where neighbouring countries are trying to stop destitute economic refugees trying to get into Brazil and Columbia – can hear the whip round being called for by the comrades as I write … but al beeb is hardly likely to advertise the failure of a corrupt socialist state – especially if it is selling uranium to Iran.,.

        • Payne by name says:

          What a joke the BlackKlansman film is. It claims that it’s about the first black detective who infiltrated the KKK.

          The thing is, he didn’t.

          He answered an advert for more information, was sent it and got signed up as a member using his real name (remember that this is in a time long before Google etc) and then when he needed to turn up in person, sent a white cop to do it.

          How is that infiltration?

          That’s like doing a film about someone working in the French Resistance during the war and then discovering that they remained in Quebec all the time.


          • Up2snuff says:

            An interview a week or more ago with Ron Stallworth on R4, revealed that he thought it was easy to infiltrate the Colorado group because they were thick.

    Got bored watching some BBC 4 documentary about Dwarfs in art, this evening so I flicked over on to BBC 2 momentarily to catch a small segment on a documentary about Bollywood..
    Anita Rani trying to understand the new modern film industry in India.
    She got a small part in some film which I understand to be about some Indian princess, fighting the British rule.
    After the filming her shot, she walks up the set to interview said princess. “You’ve just been killing English” she gleefully announces.
    I promptly flicked back over….


  23. Chalkywhite says:

    I see a no deal Brexit will ‘make it harder to stop the spread of diseases’, as reported gleefully by the BBC. Any substantiation behind this breaking news? No, just a leaked memo. Can’t see why the good old Beeb would want to make a leaked memo front page news? Oh, maybe its because its negative about something close to their hearts. I expect tomorrow they’ll find a leaked memo about a plague of locusts being brought on by a no deal Brexit. You couldn’t make this rubbish up if you tried, although I’m sure I could if I was being paid for it.


  24. thirdoption says:

    It appears the BBC is doing all it can to path the way for Chelsea Clinton to follow her corrupt parents into public office.

    Earlier this summer she was on Radio 4 Woman’s Hour.
    They ran a piece about her appearing at the Hay Festival in June.
    In June she was interviewed on BBC 5Live.
    Today she spoke to BBC Scotland from the Edinburgh Book Festival.

    She said she had great admiration for the courageous Nicola Sturgeon and abhorred Donald Trump’s presidency.
    When asked whether she’s going to run for office she said “no at the moment but definitely maybe in the future”

    The BBC must be wetting themselves with joy at the prospect of supporting another Clinton run for President.
    I hope she’s as successful as her mother was.


    • TrueToo says:


      Chelsea as president? Hell, I dunno, what’s not to like? Her parents are great role models and no doubt have educated her as to the qualities desirable in a successful political leader:

      Who could not want to emulate Bill Clinton, who stared with somber dignity directly at the media as he insisted, “I did not have sex with that woman [then, after a slight pause to add emphasis to the ruse that he was unafraid to name his accuser] miss Lewinski.” Obviously the noble Bill did that to try to protect miss Lewinski.

      Bill Clinton was also criticized for only firing a damp squib into the desert in response to the Islamic terrorists who slaughtered 224 people at the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. But he did avoid a greater conflagration, didn’t he?

      And that great model Hillary, who happily batted state secrets back and forth from her unsecured personal email server and then deleted and destroyed evidence that would have proved her guilt. But why was that wrong? She was obviously protecting Obama, who was no doubt in her address book.

      And who could forget how she turned her back on her ‘friend’ – US Ambassador to Libya – as he repeatedly appealed for more security for the Embassy, continued to turn her back as he was slaughtered along with his inadequately-armed security personnel and then lied to the public that the cause of the assault was an anti-Koran video produced in the US.

      What amazing sacrifices she made to safeguard Obama’s election prospects for a second term and her own interests!

      Who would not want to follow in the footsteps of the Clintons, who are worth hundreds of millions of dollars from selling America out to the highest bidder, including Islamic states and Russia, which now controls 20% of US uranium?!

      People who complain about that are simply misguided. After all, we now live in a global village, national borders are so 20th-century and what’s wrong with making a buck or two on the side?

      Yes, the path has been made easy for Chelsea. But the BBC should still pull out all the stops to help her run against Trump in 2020. After all, there’s still a chance that a swamp-drainer could defeat a swamp-dweller, even one with the impeccable credentials of Chelsea Clinton.

      Go, Chelsea!


  25. taffman says:

    Having just watched the film ‘Darkest Hour’, re Churchill.
    I think Mrs May, Dominic Raab and Al Beeb would be wise to see this film and take something from it about the people of Great Britain and leadership.
    ‘You cannot reason with a tiger when you head is in its mouth’.
    Lessons to be learned, Mrs May, lessons to be learned.


    • JimS says:

      Or your head up its butt?


    • Payne by name says:

      I’d love to watch the film about Churchill but every time I go to pick it up I think of the blatant SJW posturing with his female secretary being front and centre and the apparently cringe worthy trip on the tube with the high fives from the diverse London population telling him to stay true to his course.


  26. AsISeeIt says:

    The formerly popular BBC Radio 4 news show Today makes a major new effort to push Project Fear Mark 3 this morning.

    Inevitably it takes a leaf out of Left wing party tactics to lie to us about the NHS being in danger – both with a No Deal and with a so-called Hard Brexit.

    Should there really be a shortage of drugs we could always beg for some foreign aid – afterall we’ve been dishing it out for years so we could perhaps ask for some to be handed back?

    Like a dog with a bone the BBC just won’t let the EU go. There’s little doubt as to where Justin Webb stands on the issue of rule from Brussels. Following a clip of some business person worrying about Brexit which apparently backs up Justin’s own personal views the BBC man clearly makes a stage laugh in a sneery scornful way.

    Our anti-Brexit Justin is interviewing Baroness Fairhead about a government export initiative.

    This would no doubt in other circumstances have been a pally meeting of minds since this is Rona Fairhead the previous Chair of the BBC Trust. She’s certainly on first name terms with her interviewer although he keeps his tone formal and hostile.

    Usually the Brexit question comes at the close of a BBC interview being the last item on the agenda. But needs must. Project Fear is in full swing. Justin makes the Brexit issue his first question and then repeats and repeats making it his only subject of questioning.

    Fairhead remarks on his obsession: “I think, Justin, you want to renegotiate the EU Referendum”

    Ain’t that a fact!


    • Up2snuff says:

    BBC 2018-08-21.
    What you need to know today about the Black Broadcasting Corporation.
    Here at the BBC we are celebrating Black Tuesday by showing photographs of black people, doing what black people do, dry cleaning, travelling from Harlem to the UK be black and enriching with rent parties.
    Which is part of celebrating Black August, which is part of Black summer, the most enriching time of the year, in which creative Black people find new ways of stabbing each other.
    This Autumn, as part of Black Awareness Seasons, which is part of Black 2018, the BlackBC is being increasingly inventive with four thousand million pounds, expropriated from slave owners.

    Meanwhile at WBC, the White Broadcasting Corporation.
    Eleven trillion photographs of the hammer attacker, looking, well, white, which is why they are being shown.
    Photographs of the white professor with an IQ of 170 being replaced by anybody who comes through the door, if they are black.
    Correction, not enough space, time, resources, due to the hateful Tories austerity, to run the professor story.
    We do have sufficient space to advise you, yet again, about the open, transparent, BlackBC, correction policy, where we note, that a rogue, hideously white, comma was attacking other, innocent, punctuation marks.
    Punctuation marks which came to the UK hoping to be doctors and engineers and make a real contribution.
    Due to the extended non-reports about the White Comma Terrorist Movement, founded by Donald Trump, we are unble to print the apology for breaking the Terms of our Charter every minute of every day.
    The BlackBC statistical report showing that suicide is not as dangerous as being a white farmer in South Africa has been postponed.

    • scribblingscribe says:

      This is interesting as the BBC pension fund is said to have invested heavily in Tesla, and his green environmental aims.

      According to the BBC it invested 44 million of taxpayers money into Tesla this year. In 2015 they only invested 20 million.

      Click to access report_accounts_2017.pdf

      Given that the BBC pension fund is a pile of steaming poo, as last year it had a deficit of 2 billion quid. So how much more do the licence payers have to cough up to service the crazy pensions of the BBC managers?

      Also, we be concerned at the positive spin Tesla cars and Elon Musk usually get from the BBC?


    • Payne by name says:

      What a ridiculous company Tesla is. Propped up by never ending government subsidies, selling wildly expensive cars to a bunch of virtue signalling arseholes who cannot grasp that drawing down energy from a plug doesn’t make your car green because it just pushes the non green energy production further up the pipe.

      Best of all though are the twats that proclaim how he managed to put an electric car into space. Yeah, he didn’t drive it into space but rather strapped it to the front of a fuel burning rocket. You can launch anything into space but doing so doesn’t automatically grant that ‘thing’ special status.

    Not bias but —- al beeb website has a film of a vibrant traffic warden giving a parking ticket to a police car whilst working . I was wonder if anyone checked to immigration status of said traffic warden ….

    Clearly destined to go far.

    I wonder what Orla Gurning’s story is? Her recent tweet history suggests she is testing the BBC ‘views their own’ cloak of Teflon to the limit.

    John Sweeney likes a lot of tweets. Like this one.

    Nawal seems well qualified to answer.

    However, so far…. #CCBGB

      It’s amazing how national government allow false compassion to cloud their judgement as well as not learning from the mistakes of the Reich , Italy , Sweden and the rest importing third world Islamic terrorists into their country .

      Then attempt to control the news ( like here ) until it is too late to deal with them and – er- send them back . ( that’s a Sun reader reference for snowflakes monitoring the site)

      Undocumented car drivers get arrested.
      Undocumented pilots are not allowed to fly.
      Undocumented house owners are called squatters and get kicked out.
      Undocumented migrants get free houses and promise of a job.

    My MP IDS was interviewed by Lord Hennessy – 45 minutes – two decent people – one of whom I have both written too and voted for .

    IDS talked about the brexit vote and how the turn out was shockingly high . So l looked . The average turn out in my londonistan Borough was about 70 percent . In one ward it was over 80% .

    I’ll think of all those deluded people who are too thick or didn’t understand the next time I hear the likes of Soubry sounding off on al beeb again.

    No wonder I’m Fedup.

    I hope IDS gets back in next vote as the hard left are really targeting him these days …. and the extreme left council is shipping its friends in.

    Government surplus of 2 billion . Highest in 18 years . Top of the economy – shame they’ll spend it instead of fixing the roof ….

    As we know, politicians and the Beeb go out of their way to appease the MCB and are forever apologising to them for perceived offences.

    Dear BBC. Don’t mention Venezuela. I did once but i think i got away with it. Jeremy doesn’t mention it anymore because as we all know they have the ‘wrong’ type of socialism.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Panda, do you mean don’t mention it because they are all forked up into the electricity socket of the Venezuelan economy?

    Islamophobia … a word to stop you asking awkward questions towards winners of London and BBC Bake Off.

      Everybody is on a sodding ‘journey’. I am so not interested in other peoples “journey’s “.

      I’m on one in a minute – up to the Co-op, excitement or what !

    Please note that the Video showing Sadiq Khan at the Chicken Cottage Awards in 2012 has been removed from the internet … Sadiq praised HALAL food.



  47. BRISSLES says:

    Gosh ! they’re now reporting that it will take 44 FORTY FOUR checks at the border of Europe before we can get drugs and medicines for the NHS, if we have a no deal Brexit. Jeez its relentless, what will they come up with next to prevent Brexit from happening.


  48. Up2snuff says:

    Further evidence of Auntie Beeb’s dementia – losing the ability to read and understand simple things?


  49. MarkyMark says:

    “I quoted MLK recently who said ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’ … then I called the MP Boris Johnson a Muppet. ”
