      Guest – I heard this on R4 yesterday, but just turned the volume down and listened to my diesel engine instead, its a far more pleasing sound than the daily, R4, lefty, whiner.
      Might do her a bit of a favour, looks like Rebecca could easily ease up a bit on the pasties and probably still not be in much danger of starving to death.

    Racist rules causing problems for BBC opera joint produdtion.
    The original Porgy & Bess performance rights specify that always white actors cannot play black parts, but the opera company cant get the 40 British black performers
    could be a PR stunt

                    What engagement at a sensible level do you want?
                    I seem to remember you making some pompous statement about gathering evidence for some future reckoning with the BBC. Naughty words would undermine the credibility of biasedbbc. I read one of your posts for the illumination it should bring and find you mentioning “flatus”. Is that the grand indictment of the BBC you were envisaging?

                      LOL, Fed’s response is just another example of the near constant paranoia many people on this site seem to live under:

                      They’re all laughing at us. They all hate us. They all want to kill us. Everyone is the enemy. The State, universities, institutions are all ‘infected’. Soros, globalists, cultural Marxists, Gramscians, Fabians, NWO Common Purpose graduates, the EU, the UN, the BBC, Sky News, Channel 4, immigrants, black people, brown people, feminists, ’homos’, sandal wearers and those people you thought gave you a bit of a funny look walking down the street a few days ago. – They’ve all been meeting in secret, dark, smoke-free rooms across the country with the sole purpose of ensuring that a non-white, muslim woman won “Bake Off” in 2015.

                      You can’t even say racist, bigoted things anymore without some no-mark calling you a bigoted racist.

                ID, It was not so long ago you suggested I was a Russian Troll because I had a different view on the Syrian situation. Then you took me to task over for supporting an alternative view view on the Skipal incident when not only had I not written anything about it my views on that were the same as yours. I did not receive an apology. I declined to trade insults with you at the time but now the gloves are off.
                You are by far the most unpleasant person I have encountered on this site in four years. You are incapable of reasonable discourse and you sew disharmony like you have studied it for a degree.
                I will not accuse you of working for the BBC and I don’t know if Fed made that seriously or tongue in cheek but I do know this, and that is anybody on this site working for the BBC would not make statements supporting them. That would be plain stupid. They would be working in more subtle ways to cause problems.
                As for calling people liars, well! Twice you have told us that you are leaving this site and yet you keep coming back like a demented ghost. To your own self be true, at least.

                  Anyone claiming to be outraged about BBCbias yet parrots RT nonsense cannot be taken seriously. Especially, as many of the stalwarts of Press TV still turn up on RT.
                  Even I can’t “sew” disharmony.
                  Do you still think the Russians had nothing to do with Salisbury? Did your conspiracy theories pan out.?
                  Continue in your ridiculous belief that someone criticising the BBC is actually working for them in some cunning nefarious way. Utterly laughable.

                      I can’t remember what you wrote or, indeed ever replying to you. However, as I have no reason to doubt you, and can’t find the post/posts, would you accept my apology for misrepresenting your views?
                      I am intrigued by the idea that there are loyal BBC employees infiltrating BiasedBBC and slagging off the BBas a way of furthering the BBC agenda. How do you differentiate “real” critics from bogus ones? Is it the dodgy grammar and misspelling of simple words that marks out the true ctitic of the BBC from those duplicitous Oxbridge educated BBC blackop wallahs?

                      ID, There is no reply option to your letter below. so I’ll reply here.
                      Firstly I accept your apology. Thank you.
                      Next I will assume your question is serious and that you do wish to know how to distinguish between real from bogus critics and not just a dig at my lack of education. I would have to say I don’t have a reliable answer. It’s not a thing I worry about a lot and I don’t tend to think that it would make any sense for the beeb to pay someone to infiltrate us. But lack of sense does not mean they wouldn’t do it.
                      Is maxicony a bbc mole? I have never accused him of being such. I think him a mildly irritating ambush predator who waits for the unwary. His style of delivery is like a previous troll going by the name of LTV or similar in that he presents peoples own lines back at them, often out of context, but he may not be the same person. I just think him a harmless idiot.
                      But there again he did launch quite vicious attacks against Alan our previous chap in charge. And we have to see if he starts to attack Fed in the same way.
                      My experience with infiltrators was before the ‘online era’
                      I was going to relate a few incidents here which you and others may have found amusing but my post would become too long. In summary I would say that that one can spend too much time worrying about moles and spies and in my experience while they do turn up now and again they generally turn out to be not the ones who people thought.
                      But looking for unusual patterns in their behaviour is my suggestion and don’t get hung up be unusual behaviour as such. If that makes sense.

    Dozens of decapitated skeletons unearthed in mysterious ancient cemetery (PHOTOS)

    “A cemetery dating back to the 4th century has been uncovered by archaeologists in Suffolk, England, revealing 52 incredibly well-preserved skeletons, many of which had been decapitated.

    The dig at the Roman-era cemetery revealed many disembodied skeletons, buried with their heads carefully placed between their legs or feet. Some of the remains were merely skulls, buried without corresponding bodies. In all, only 17 of the 52 bodies of men, women and children were buried in the standard lying position”

    ” . . . this site had an unusually high number of “deviants””

    A just translated epigraph stated that the skeletons were from a patrician group who tried to stop Britain leaving the
    Roman Empire in 329AD and were executed for their treason.
    The epigraph also explained that the term “lying position” used in 329AD is not the same as that used today.

    From a comment :-
    “These were the burials of liberals. It was believed that if the heads of liberals were cut off they would neither return to life or harass you in the afterlife.”

      The Brexiteers finally won a referendum amongst the posh elite in 406. They appointed Marcus as Emperor of Britannia, but he was as useless as Theresa May, so they appointed Gratian as Emperor of Britannia, but he was as useless as Jeremy Corbyn, so they appointed Constantine as Emperor of Britain, but he was a bit like Michael Gove, abandoning Britain to fight the French, Spaniards, Germans and Italians in Spain and France. The Remainers then tried to reverse the Referendum result four years later in 410 by sending a letter to Honorius (Juncker) asking for help to reimpose European rule. But Honorius (Juncker) said he couldn’t do this because the Euroskeptic, Alaric (Orban) had sacked Rome (Brussels). So Honorius (Juncker) told the Remainers to respect the 406 Referendum result. So in the north of Britain, the Brexitters appointed Old King Coel as King of Birneich (Britannia-North)

      Guest – we know Trump’s not going to win prizes for eloquence, nor does he have Reagans short, sharp stabbing sword. By and large, though, he does have what matters: policies.
      What good is a smooth talker with crap policies, eg Obama?
      Anyway, it’s quite easy to transcribe someone talking off the cuff, and make them sound… not fluent. Bet you can do the same to the smug Naughtie.
      No, Trump has a constituency for whom he delivers. They like him that way.
      Obama pretended to deliver to his ‘constituency’ , but never really did.
      In fact, you can argue that Trump has done more to deliver for Obama’s constituency (jobs, security etc) than Obama ever did. But the latter did have a smooth tongue; smooth as a snake…

    It is now quite surreal.

    For years there was ‘allegedly’, which served the BBC and still does when actually unable to substantiate anything, by neatly going vague and/or either referencing unknown testimony or that of others more immune from carrying the can.

    Then came ‘reportedly’, where the escape clause is, as the word suggests, a ‘report’ by another, who is not the BBC, and hence good enough to serve.

    Now there is, often in combination, ‘investigated’. Which actually and often only does mean someone, somewhere, has made a claim that has pushed those easily guided into checking.

    It means nothing at this point. If it leads to a charge, it does. But still not as much as a conviction. especially these days as the DPP is utterly discredited. Otherwise it is simply a tool to taint alone.

    The BBC likes all these words. Too much. And for these reasons.

          It is not, and never has been, just about the UK.
          We are not eurosceptics no matter how many times the lying MSM used this term. We have no doubts about EU intentions, we understand and hate them.
          Hundreds of millions of good Europeans cheered when the UK voted to leave, not that this was widely publicised.
          They want to leave the moribund dictatorship themselves. The suggestion that these people will not trade with us shows how desperate the Europhiles are.

          The Politiburo will be working round the clock. Their army will be deployed ASAP and it will be like 1956 in Hungary again.

                Reported to have said. Who knows what, if anything, he actually said. An important point is that the New Testament is not taken as the word of God. Makes it much easier to interpret, or totally ignore, as you wish. At least we have a choice.

                  The recent New Year’s Eve stabbing is a fine example of them doing everything they could to avoid calling it a religious-based attack including rewriting headlines, burying the description and religion of the attacker at the bottom of the article, and dropping the story as quickly as they could diminishing the Islam angle with mental illness one.

                  How is it even possible to discuss that story without including Islam? Are you advocating that we too become like the BBC and ignore the most important element of the story.

                  You need to understand that Islam is primarily a political cult and that critics, or attackers, of the Koran, do so because it is not perceived as a religious text. No one here has either found or attacked any religious element in it. They attack its elevation to a credible bundle of words by the biased BBC

                    Not that Islam doesn’t deserve to be criticised as a religion, but your statement is a blatent, total lie.

    ”Transport Secretary Chris Grayling told the Daily Mail that not leaving the EU would cause the 17 million people who voted for Brexit to feel “cheated”.
    This could end centuries of “moderate” politics in the UK, he said, as he urged his colleagues to back Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal.”

    ”..end centuries of “moderate” politics..” ?
    The last few decade’s looks rather EXTREMIST to me
    Such as :
    Importing 7 million immigrants,
    legalising all things homo – even marridge and allowing children to be part adoption experiments.
    CCTV everywhere.
    Police that dress like para millitary and often with better hardware than the army.
    Virtually criminalising criticism of a certain religion.
    Dividing societies up and calling it communities,,
    Having a welfare systen than hands out as many fines (sanctions) a year, as magistrates courts, but with less time to repay them or legal scrutiny.
    A raft of laws curtailing free speech, gatherings, marches..

    Notice that the headline says services post Brexit , not services in spite of Brexit or despite Brexit .

      Maxi was pinned down a while back on whether he was a Beeboid. He said no. Have a vague notion that he sort of half hinted, half admitted he’s something in the legal profession.

      Interesting that we have three trolls on together. Less likely to be one and the same person.

      Welcome guys & gals – as long as you truly engage in debate and not just indulge in drive-by shoutings. What would be especially welcome – and would raise your status no end – would be if you picked up and posted BBC errors or examples of bias on here, too. After all, it is what we are about.

    Against my better judgement I just watched Question Time and better judgement proved right since it was grindingly awful. I guess Fiona Bruce’s enunciation and voice projection didn’t figure in the BBC’s choice of her to replace Dimbleby. Lefty PeeCee shmuck though Dimbleby is, he could clearly articulate his Lefty PeeCee shmuckness and one didn’t have to strain to hear him.

    So why did the BBC choose her? I guess they figured she was the one who most closely resembled Dimbleby’s style and could be relied on to perpetuate it, remaining equally unperturbed by the programme’s biased lefty choice of panelists and audience.

    I noticed that she allowed the awful Thornberry to waffle and grumble on at length, frequently cut the black Tory guy short and virtually ignored Melanie Phillips (who nevertheless managed to put that dumb ‘comedian’ in his place over his ignorant and insulting rant on the subject of black-on-black knife killings in London.)

    No wonder the BBC is delighted with her first performance.

    A few on here have asked if the bbbc have ever done a positive item about Brexit (and nobody has found one yet)

    There have been lots of either anti Brexit or pro eu programmes (100 days after Brexit, QT and the like), not to mention the sledgehammer pro eu/anti Brexit propaganda (same withTrump) we get incessantly from EVERY channel.

    So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find ONE pro Brexit – anti eu programme broadcasted on ANY channel EVER.
    Some one thing to counter the hundreds of pro eu/anti Brexit propaganda programmes.

    By the way, I have heard of a comedian who is NOT far left like all the comedians we see on tv. He is called Geoff Norcott (I think) although he’s rarely seen. He is, unlike current ‘comedians’, funny.

    Because of paywalls reader opportunities are fewer, the Guardian comments are popular and the source of income the Guardian badly needs.

    The Nobel prize-winning DNA pioneer James Watson is probably the most qualified man on the planet to comment on human intelligence in relation to DNA seeing as he discovered it.

    He recently made the perfectly reasonable assertion that he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”.
    He was further quoted as saying that his hope was that everyone was equal but that “people who have to deal with black employees find this is not true”.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7052416.stm

    The reaction of all the less qualified people who desperately want to virtue signal their love of all things black and African is to remove him from his job and strip him of all his awards, telling him he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

      James Watson didn’t discover DNA. DNA was discovered by Friedrich Miescher in 1869. The role of DNA was discovered by Oswald Avery in 1944. Watson, along with Francis Crick, discovered the structure of DNA and for this they were awarded a Nobel Prize in 1953.
      Watson’s work tells us nothing about the role of DNA and intelligence.

        There has been several studies claiming that the IQ of Africans is lower that many non Africans. Yes, very controversial and claims have been made regarding DNA, so I would expect Watson, as a scientist, might investigate the arguments.

        So if Watson said this, then it would have been based on some research into the arguments. He could be wrong, just as the studies could be wrong.
        But the wrongness would be based on a refutation of the science, not by virtue signalling would be Maxiconys

              I should point out that I do not place much weight on IQ tests in any area.
              However, for discussions on the claim regarding IQ and Africans I suggest looking on You Tube where there are numerous discussions on the subject – some crude, others intelligent. Worth a look. Try hitting You Tube
              IQ tests and Africans
              Worth looking at Wikipedia for an outline of the theories.

              Watson has a reputation for thinking outside the box, which he is entitled to. Sir Patrick Moore once hauled me over for re-examining his work on Directed Panspermia. Outlandish and outside of mainstream science, but I have not found a correct medical diagnosis for that.

      Indulge me over Goddard. Before he upset Owen Jones’s adopted Mummy, Anna Soubry, he has been leading a campaign called Justice for the Three, which is backing the claims of the families of three young boys who were victims of a hit and run attack, which Goddard – rightly or wrongly – sees as a terrorist act covered up by the cops and the media.

      In this respect, like Tommy Robinson, who has been drawing attention to the cover up of grooming gangs, Goddard has become a nuisance to the authorities. He needs to be silenced, so nail him over offending Owen Jones’s mummy.

      His broadcasting style is not very polished, but people who are losing contact with the MSM are listening.

      I am not saying he is correct, but I do oppose him being demonized for his views.

    The report examines this departure from nine separate perspectives:
    The Political Case – Jacob Rees-Mogg, MP
    The Labour Case – Prof David Paton
    The Economic Case – Prof Patrick Minford
    The Sovereignty Case – Rt Hon Owen Paterson, MP
    The Case for Ending Uncertainty – Lord Bamford
    The Immigration Case – Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith, MP and Neil MacKinnon
    The Trade Case – Roger Bootle
    The Case for Non-Disruption – Edgar Miller
    The Legal Case – Martin Howe QC
    It concludes – even though exiting with a free trade agreement would be a preferred outcome – that a No-Deal departure embracing WTO rules is very much more attractive than proceeding with the Withdrawal Agreement. No Deal should not be feared, and it preserves – indeed enhances – all of our negotiating options.
