Start the Week Thread 13 January 2020

18 days until the UK leaves the EU. Last week the legislation finalising our leaving passed through the Commons with barely a mention by the Biased pro EU BBC; and at the moment it is busy with royal issues . Perhaps it is at a stage of organisational grief combined with a feeling of hopelessness that the General Election didn’t go the way the BBC wanted .

    Al-Beeb are currently headlining ‘Manchester sex abuse: ‘Fundamental flaws’ left children unprotected.’

    “Police and social workers investigating child sex exploitation in Manchester knew children were suffering “the most profound abuse… but did not protect them”, a report has found.
    After a child’s death in 2003, police identified at least 97 “predominantly Asian” suspects, but “very few” faced justice, the independent review found.”

    [For ‘Asian’, read ‘pakistani muslim’. But with a paedophile sex-addict as a model, no surprise there.]

    The social services are blamed, and the police.

    What is NOT mentioned is the prevailing atmosphere of fear of being denounced as islamophobic or racist by right-on, PC, left-wing influencers and organisations like our very own much-detested BBC.

    Not a shred of self-awareness, self-questioning, remorse or apology for having helped create the climate of thought that allowed the muslim abuse to go unchecked for decades, not just in Manchester but across the country on an unimaginable scale.

    FT : BBC boss would like two thirds of staff outside London by 2027
    It follows accusations from No 10 that the corporation was catering to a “pro-Remain metropolitan bubble in Islington
    … we must work harder than ever to ensure our coverage reflects all voices across the UK”

    ( .. yeh that’s why the new R4 Drama is Lagos to London .. a rewritecof Dickens)

    September 2019
    “We’ve made enormous strides. A decade ago, a third of the BBC was based outside London and two-thirds was in London. Today, that balance is 50/50.
    We’ve moved from less than 10% of our network TV programmes production …”

    FFS 60m population in UK
    … 9m in London .. that’s just 15%

    They scream at everyone else, yet they are way out of kilter with the rest of the UK
    .. 85% of BBC jobs should be outside London
    yet they are nowhere near getting that.

      Tony Hall speaks doublespeak. The fact is that thc BBC studios (UK) made just £200 Million from ‘private’ contracts for NetFlix and Prime customers and the EU, In part some of that was also ‘subservient’ PR work for Arab totallitarian regimes which are ‘aired’ on YouTube (reported in the press last year) and NOT broadcast on BBC channels. That is ‘private’ funds.

      The BBC has an income of £3.9 billion from the License fee and doubles that from FreeView Royalty Fee payments. Most of this is ‘golden oldies’ of yesteryear on FreeView channels. So in truth the BBC spends all of £3.9 Billion to create this ‘original’ content which in years 2011 to 2012 was in excess of £1 Billion. But it takes £3.9 Billion to produce it. That is a loss to the UK of 75%, not a profit, a LOSS. On top of that the BBC pays No Corporation Tax and has generous tax subsidies to fund UK ‘talent’ which it clearly abuses to its own ends. Its a British Leyland badged loss making monster, and it what little profit it does make, goes into ‘private’ hands in the BBC.

      Lord Tony Hall is a modern day Lord Haw Haw. Money IN does not equal money out. This is a loss making business. A vanity project for failure celebrated. WE should get rid of it.

    Melanie Phillips’ tribute to Roger Scruton. (Paywalled in today’s Times.)

    Every word of his and her critique of the Left applies to the beeb.

    “Roger Scruton knew the precious value of freedom”

    “The late philosopher repeatedly exposed the left’s aim of suppressing independent thought

    The death of Sir Roger Scruton is a loss that our troubled culture can ill afford. He was Britain’s greatest contemporary philosopher and also its most lyrical.

    The author of more than 50 books, he didn’t just write about Kant and Wittgenstein. He also wrote luminously about beauty and music, architecture and sexual desire, fox-hunting and piety, art and the rural idyll.

    Much misrepresented and traduced, Sir Roger analysed, defended and embodied conservatism which he understood to a rare degree. He articulated and championed the deep connections between conservatism, the English countryside and national identity.

    He recognised that without a shared home and culture based on the inherited values, customs and laws of a nation state there can be no sense of “we”. Above all, Sir Roger realised that conservatism was about the defence of collective memory and freedom, or it was nothing.

    In his book How to Be a Conservative, published in 2014, he recalled his astonishment when, witnessing the 1968 student riots in Paris, he realised that these radicals wanted to destroy freedom in pursuit of the illusory benefits of Marxism.

    From this he concluded that the political alternative to revolutionary socialism was conservatism. But when he started teaching at London university, he discovered that without exception his colleagues opposed conservatism which they said was the enemy of fairness and those “struggling for peace” against American imperialism.

    From then on, his life became a progressively more urgent battle in which he fought academia and cultural orthodoxies and lost.

    In Britain, he witnessed at first hand the “long march through the institutions” which undermined core values along with enterprise, national sovereignty and patriotism.

    In communist eastern Europe, he bravely helped dissidents to fight oppression, culminating in his own arrest and expulsion from Czechoslovakia in 1985.

    This relationship opened his eyes, not just to the evils of the Soviet Union but the importance of “the bringing to consciousness of forgotten things”. He also realised that in Britain, Labour Party socialism expressed the same contempt for human freedom through its agenda of controlling society in the name of equality.

    In How to Be a Conservative, he wrote that ordinary people were trying to “live by their lights, raising families, enjoying communities, worshipping their gods and adopting a settled and affirmative culture — these attempts are scorned and ridiculed by the Guardian class.”

    As a result, he wrote, conservatives now had to “move quietly and discreetly… known only to each other as they move in disguise”. At the same time, he realised that many of them no longer understood what they needed to conserve. So his Conservative Philosophy Group tried to restore conservatism to the Conservative Party.

    As the years went on, the totalitarian characteristics which he had helped battle in eastern Europe surfaced in Britain under a different guise.

    The universities, those supposed crucibles of fearless and independent thought (but which had long since hounded him out), started openly suppressing ideas. On campus as elsewhere, the culture wars of identity politics were claiming real victims through character assassination and social and professional ostracism.

    Last year, he himself fell victim to this when an article in the New Statesman smeared him by distorting comments he had made in an interview. Worse still, on the basis of nothing other than these falsehoods, the Tory housing minister James Brokenshire sacked him as chairman of a government commission — thus proving Sir Roger’s point about the party’s moral vacuum. Both the magazine and Brokenshire subsequently apologised and Sir Roger was restored to his role. But the injustice of the affair badly wounded him.

    It is difficult to convey to anyone who hasn’t experienced such an onslaught the impact this can have on the victim’s life and wellbeing. It becomes hard to dispatch the feeling that, despite the support of friends and even any subsequent apology, the forces of darkness are steadily extinguishing the lights of justice and decency.

    We should remember him not for the horrible hit-job which blighted the end of his life but for his sweetness of character, dry wit and magnificent writing, which will remain in our minds and hearts and through which he will continue to teach us about truth, freedom and what it is to be human.

    May his memory be for a blessing.”

    Maggie Oliver has just been on Sky News and she squarely puts the blame for the Manchester ‘grooming’ gangs going unpunished and the coverup, on those at the top of the police food chain.

    I think we all know that our ‘betters’ have consistently covered up for the ’asian’ gangbanggangs and to hell with our little girls getting enriched, drugged, tortured and all the rest that is associated with those who can not be named.

    If these cases ever go anywhere you can bet your house that none of the police commissioners etc will be brought to justice.
    All that would happen is some at the bottom would be sacrificed, cannon fodder, so that the fast tracked graduates who have pc’d their way to the top of the police tree can get away with their cowardice (or corruption) (or both) and carry on ruining what’s left of our police.

    I sure the vast majority of our ‘bobbies’ want this sorted but the ‘elite’ want it suppressed, hidden and forgotten about.

    Like Hillsborough, maybe in 40 years, when most are dead or dribbling and drooling, we may get some daylight but for now expect the usual whitewash.

    The BBC has and is indulging in a very dangerous and dishonest attack on British society and in particular white British people, pushing the narrative that they are all racist based purely on the fact that they are white and that other races, and the BBC includes Islam as a race for some reason, are always victims of white peoples’ prejudice thus sowing the seeds of increasing ethnic anger, dissent and ultimately open conflict. The BBC is highly irresponsible and dangerous, not only stirring up race conflict but religious based terrorism as well as it continually justifies and excuses Muslim terrorism and radicalisation. Perhaps it is about time someone in ‘authority’ started looking at just what the BBC and its employees are doing as they whip up race hate and incite radicalisation. Are all migrants racist now then using BBC logic? Why does the BBC usually underplay migrant crimes and the downsides to immigration in the UK whilst on the other hand always telling us of the supposed benefits of immigration. The Archbishop insisted that many faiths, not just Islam, have a problem with radicalisation. And, significantly, he said Christians should not deny “accountability” for the role of their faith in “many atrocities” over the centuries including recent decades. Saying Christians should be accountable for past crimes rather misses the point…certainly Christians have done things ‘in the name of Christianity’ but no-where in Jesus’s teachings does he say kill people, oppress them and force them to adopt his religion….unlike in the Koran.
    The BBC also misses the point in claiming that Britain is racist and basing that upon a rise in ‘Islamophobia’, a meaningless word used to silence debate. Most hate crimes against Muslims came in the wake of the Lee Rigby murder, you remember that? The hate crime where two Muslims hacked to death a British soldier on a British street?
    The BBC’s curious notion that ‘Britain’ is racist, ie white Britain, is highly prejudicial and inaccurate, an inaccuracy made all the worse because we know that it is a deliberate choice by the BBC to present the ‘facts’ in a way that makes white Britons out to be racist purely on the basis of their skin colour…you’re white therefore you must be racist.
    The BBC is deliberately stirring up race hate against white, British people as it falsely accuses them of being some sort of white supremacists. The real tradegy and great concern is that the BBC is reluctant to tell us the truth about Islam/Muslims and the effect they have on society nevertheless it should be spoken about, it should be brought clearly into the open-the BBC has to stop denying the influence of the Islamic Political Ideology spreading across the UK and Europe.

      I have wondered at the restraint strong minded British people have shown in the face of abuse of the ‘ hospitality ‘ afforded them as new arrivals from the third world . It is seem as a weakness .

      Even in extreme – such as London Bridge – there was no reaction – not to many other attacks as well as organised criminality such as mass sexual assaults .

      My fear is that something will trigger a change in outlook – whatever noises the state and its broadcaster make or indeed – suppress.

      As a thought exercise suppose this is State Broadcaster’s honest assessment of the majority view. Perhaps it should consider whether it is serving the larger part of its own taxpayers?

      As a subscription service it could be as anti white as it liked as those cursed with the ‘hidious’ tint could go consume their TV elsewhere.

          Wasnt the cost of “bonging scaffold clad ” Benn in the region of £500,000 which in reality is very small beer when you consider the importance of the event and how much the Government have wasted on various projects over the years.

    Today I saw a picture of a little girl learning ‘coding’ wearing a jersey with the slogan “I am always right” written on it. This afternoon I was on a crowded bus with several people standing. One of the seats was taken up with a pre-school girl, the one alongside by her rag doll. No-one said a word. We have all seen the sickening sight of so-called ‘people of power’ hanging on every word of the Skiving Swede.

    Parents, just say ‘No!’.

      She anticipated that, she changed seats with the doll when even more people got on!

      Still, look on the bright side, one day she might have her own daughter.

    The pathetic BBC are still failing to identify the perpetrators of these paedophile crimes.
    How many times can they randomly refer to the assailants as “men”? It’s pitiful.
    They will traverse around the houses, turn themselves inside out, but they still can’t find the correct words.
    Mark Easton was doing his bit towards the end of this evening’s coverage and just for a second I thought we might have had a breakthrough. He went right up to the shoreline, dipped his toe in the water and then scuttled back to safety.
    What he eventually came out with was mealy mouthed and pathetic.”What we have here is an abused minority who in turn…”. So even when they’re talking about paedo’s they’ve got to be given “victim status.”
    For one moment I thought he was actually going to say ” these rapists are Pakistani Muslim men” but no, he hesitated and then retreated to the shelter of the politically correct BBC safe space .
    It’s really quite incredible. Here we have a vile, sinister crime that’s been perpetrated against vulnerable underage white girls for decades. It’s been hidden by the police, the local authorities, politicians and the media and the bloody useless, gutless BBC still can’t admit who is actually responsible.
    You know, when lo Cox was murdered I don’t recall them being nearly so reticent. Straight away they were out there with a clear motive for the killer. There were no ifs, buts, whys or wherefores, they told us straight away who was responsible…
    The far right!

    Compare and contrast.

    versus

    Attitude of authorities to vulnerable children being repeatedly raped and drugged by ‘Asian male’ gangs in Northern towns and cities.

    The BBC asks folk a BBC question and edits the BBC story.

    Maybe that latest Dr. lady who is now toast of the studios has a view?

    One of the BBC (we’re not biased honest we’re not and if we keep telling the lie long enough someone will believe it) so called comedians has issued his hate filled diatribe against Ricky Gervaise in the BBC print arm the grauniad.

    In his piece he claims Only “furious moronic c**ts” liked Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes set

    Just read this appalling diatribe and you will understand just why the BBC doesn’t do comedy anymore, and why it loves w***kers like this so much.

    Some jokes which are actually funny:

    Doctor it burns every time I pass water, ah he said you must be Australian !

    My son is taking part in a social experiment by wearing an “I love Jeremy Corbyn” T shirt. So far he’s been kicked in the nuts, punched in the face spat on and generally insulted. It will be interesting to see the effects when he wears it outside the house !

      The BBC are again right there with them on this.

      Should it go the shape of the pear down the line, might we again see spouses and partners unhappy on the BBC rather than with the BBC?

    Time for a new Thread

    Newsnight dug up a private citizen called Anna Soubry to go on about State Aid for Flybe – and a girl economist who sounded as though she d taken too much Peruvian marching powder in the Green Room .

    How Soubry hasn’t done a Major / Hezza and slipped back into their coffin is beyond me . And the BBC giving a failed politician like her oxygen is just inexcusable

    The BBC has a clear attraction to Manchester. ‘The BBC signalled its intention to move jobs to Manchester in 2004, and the Salford Quays site was chosen in 2006. Labour was still in power and denying anything that the BBC spend all their power denying. Manchester is in the news (again) as The ‘Rochdale’ liberal MP Cyril Smith regularly abused Young Boys from his luxury flat in Manchester.’For four decades Cyril Smith, the former Liberal MP, was free to abuse boys with impunity. … HOW DID he get away with it. The BBC would not report it.
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/liberaldemocrats/10775341/Cyril-Smith-the-predatory-paedophile-protected-by-establishment.html

    Before that disclosure the BBC denied several times that Jimmy Saville had worked for the BBC. Left to the BBC we would NEVER know..’Sir Jimmy Savile (1926–2011) was a BBC celebrity, showbiz friend of the establishment and philanthropist. In October 2012, one year after his death, an ITV documentary alleged that Savile was also a prolific sexual predator who for decades had exploited his BBC status to abuse teenage girls.’
    https://openaccess.city.ac.uk/id/eprint/4266/

    Manchester has a curious attraction for the BBC. So today’s disclosure of another cover up of Child abuse in Manchester is something else for the BBC to deny any local involvement. But here they are involved by not reporting (any) child abuse then or now. After all you have to recognise it as an ‘abuse’, much better to get a sociology professor on the radio stating that sex should be compulsory (educational) by older men on young boys and girls and reduce the age of compliance to (say) four. Or an Imman stating that it was impossible that this could ever happen (again) as nobody was aware of it at the time. Well it was 2006. At the same time as the ‘other’ failures at the BBC to report anything detrimental to the religion of choice which enjoy a relative safety zone, within the BBC.

    Working for the BBC in Manchester should have a health warning. The influence of the BBC is there for all to see as its NOT news they want to report. After all, why should they embarrass themselves, on issues which they can deny ‘as not being of any public interest’. They decide, of course and call it progressive diversity and equality nonsense. At least we can ignore the BBC now,

    So, it seems the eco-BBC has the time and money to follow the globe-trotting Duchess around the world to afford her the privacy she claims.

    As hypocrisy goes, an impressive combo.
