    I see that the BBC are reporting a stabbing of a ten year old in Leicester…Looks like it’s those Asians again…..however the suspect is described by the BBC as ……….a light-skinned Asian man, in his mid-20s, about 5ft 10in tall, of chubby build, and wearing a brown jacket.

    Some time ago to avoid Al Beeb’s blatant bias, I was advised to tune in to LBC . Unfortunately apart from Nick Ferarri and Lord Nigel, the rest of the presenters are just as left, pro EU and as multi-culti as Al Beeb.
    Working nights, listening to radio, what is the least propaganda ridden broadcaster to tune in to ?

          In case you’re interested, I go to sleep listening to one of a number of radio stations that broadcast old programmes. Listening to news and phone in shows keep my brain too active and my blood pressure to high.

          A few of the stations:
          Pumpkin radio – has several channels
          Old time radio – has several channels
          MPIR old time radio – I probably listen to this most
          ROK radio – has several channels

      I find that RT is the only broadcaster that represents the Brexit majority amongst its British guests. They even have a Brexiteer, George Galloway, presenting a show. Today he had a Socialist from Redcar who voted Tory because the local snotty nosed upper class Labour MP, snubbed two thirds of her voters. Those working class uneducated ones who voted to leave the EU. They also talked about political correctness and snobbery within the BBC. It reminded me of the fact that if you hear any working class voices on BBC radio, they usually turn out to be Black working class voices.

      So we have a huge imbalance on the BBC due to its bias in favour of Remainers over Brexiteers, Environmental Activists over Scientists, Muslims over Jews, Liberals over Tories, Me To Feminists over Conservative Women and Black Londoners over White Working Class Northerners.

      I also notice that the BBC has replace most of its Scots and Welsh presenters with Black and Asian presenters, and most Northerners with Gay presenters.

        I remember what John Sweeney was recorded as saying about Tommy Robinson being in the Green Room at I think broadcasting house.

        They all went in to meet him because his kind were so unusual it was like meeting an alien.

        I think he also used some other derogatory descriptions of what they see as a member of the working class. But it’s apparent their hatred of normal Englishmen and workmen is inbred and visceral.

          The undercover recording caught Sweeney talking about the time he met a working class guest in the green room .. he said it was so rare it was like meeting a cannibal from the Amazon
          That guy was local newspaper boss Danny Lockwood, who happens to be the same guy that published TR’s first book.
          and the same guy who police bosses decided to send 3 cars of armed police to intercept on his way to work

    of course plantain will is expensive here so you shouldn’t be eating the same food as in the Caribbean.
    The presenters and advisers were all clueless Guardianlalaland people who think all you need to do is give people a huge wad if cash each week.

    weird thing was the Council bosd lets his tenants get into huge rent arrears
    .. and then spends council money on these people advising them on how to manage their debts. ..when their main creditor is him

    Following on from the first real sign of plods’ institutional neglect of child victims of Pakistani Muslim rape gangs exposed in a newspaper – today’s BBC news reviews are full of ‘news’ about two unemployed 30 somethings going to Canada . So look away from real stuff plebs .

    Anyway -in the BBC corporate magazine aka The Guardian a man has written a column describing the dangers of the breakup of the UK because of Brexit ‘nationalism ‘ . The man writing the article is called “Gordon Brown ‘ and at the end the Guardian helpfully reminds people he was PM for a couple of years .
    He , on the other hand , reminds people that 83% of the population of the UK live in England . I ask – does the BBC reflect that?

    LOL….Harrabin romanticising the Aboriginals and their burning practices…

    We are ‘messaged’ that…

    ‘For thousands of years, the Indigenous people of Australia set fire to the land.

    Long before Australia was invaded and colonised by Europeans, fire management techniques – known as “cultural burns” – were being practised.

    “Cool burning replenishes the earth and enhances biodiversity – the ash fertilises and the potassium encourages flowering. It’s a complex cycle based on cultural, spiritual and scientific knowledge.”

    The cool-burning, knee-high blazes were designed to happen continuously and across the landscape.

    Indigenous cultural burns work within the rhythms of the environment, attracting marsupials and mammals which Aboriginal people could hunt.’

    Hmmm…..burning was used for many purposes….often to drive animals into a killing zone…but that’s far less of a colourful and emotive image than ‘attracting marsupials and mammals’. That’s such a romanticisation of what is a purely practical method of land management that is used all over the world…except where the eco-liberals rule….but no mention of that in the article….what we get is a lie by omission….forgetting to tell us that it is green eco rules that have stopped the burnings…ironically to stop CO2 being released…the BBC merely says the local authority bans it…

    ‘Her Aboriginal elders in Sydney have been assessing the overgrown bush and extremely dry kindling for some time, warning that a huge fire is coming: “They compared it to a kid with unkempt hair, saying it needs nurturing.”

    But local authorities have forbidden them from cultural burning when they’ve asked for permission.’

    and that anyway….the illegal settler’s and nasty white boy methods don’t work..

    ‘While modern-day authorities do carry out hazard reduction burning, focusing on protecting lives and property, Ms Foster says it’s “clearly not working”.

    “The current controlled burns destroy everything. It’s a naive way to practise fire management, and it isn’t hearing the Indigenous people who know the land best.’

    Complete rubbish….You can read a more truthful and non-political description of burnings here…

    https://www.abs.gov.au/Ausstats/[email protected]/0/6C98BB75496A5AD1CA2569DE00267E48

    And then there is this…written in 2015…it is not just the Aboriginals who have been warning about not burning the land…stupid white people have also…

    Bushfire scientist David Packham warns of huge blaze threat, urges increase in fuel reduction burns

    ‘Forest fuel levels have worsened over the past 30 years because of “misguided green ideology”, vested interests, political failure and mismanagement, creating a massive bushfire threat, a former CSIRO bushfire scientist has warned.

    Victoria’s “failed fire management policy” is an increasing threat to human life, water supplies, property and the forest environment, David Packham said in a submission to the state’s Inspector-General for Emergency Management.

    He said forest fuel levels had climbed to their most dangerous level in thousands of years.

    The BBC also tries to dismiss claims that arson is to blame for the spread of the fires….it tells us that lightning is the main culprit…

    Australia fires: Is arson to blame?
    ‘A UK government minister has been accused of using misleading figures about the number of bushfires in Australia caused by arson.

    Heather Wheeler, a foreign office minister, said last week: “Very regrettably, it is widely reported on social media that 75% of the fires were started by arsonists.”‘

    The BBC dismisses it as fake news but hedges its bets by mentioning the truth…

    ‘A 2008 study found that in Australia about 85% of fires were triggered by human activity – this includes arson, but also carelessness or recklessness.

    In the US state of California, 95% of wildfires are started by people – 7% of those by arson – according to Cal Fire, the state’s fire service.’

    But also throws in a misleading porky…

    ‘Scientists have long warned that a hotter, drier climate caused by climate change will contribute to fires becoming more frequent and more intense.’

    The fires are really more frequent and intense because the land hasn’t been managed by burning…as the BBC’s own romantic Aboriginal story tells us…if only they’d get their story straight…but it’s the usual thing…a different narrative about the same issue to suit a different message and they hope no-one joins the dots and sees the truth about their coverage.

    A 2015 study showed…by Paul Read an ecological criminologist and sustainability scientist at Monash University….

    https://www.smh.com.au/national/arson-mischief-and-recklessness-87-per-cent-of-fires-are-man-made-20191117-p53bcl.html

    ‘A 2015 satellite analysis of 113,000 fires from 1997-2009 confirmed what we had known for some time – 40 per cent of fires are deliberately lit, another 47 per cent accidental. This generally matches previous data published a decade earlier that about half of all fires were suspected or deliberate arson, and 37 per cent accidental. Combined, they reach the same conclusion: 87 per cent are man-made.’

    And remember..in 1974 117 million hectares burned, and in 1851 five million hectares burned in Victoria alone…killing one million sheep…in 2020…10 million hectares in total across Australia. Today’s fires are not the most intense nor the most unprecedented ever.

    BBC1 Andrew Marr Show today:

    Youngest Labour MP Nadia Whittome (23) was a guest on the show today to give her views on today’s newspapers. (The Sun was included. First time ever??). The subject of controlling immigration by Boris came up. This is what she said,
    “Immigrants would be the first to be thrown under the bus, particularly with a hard Tory Brexit. An attack on migrants rights is an attack on all our workers’ rights”

    No interruption by Marr, just nods.

    Ex-Director General of the BBC Mark Thompson was interviewed. He who admitted that the BBC was left wing when he left circa 2009. He now runs the NY Times. A rag that hates Trump and loves the Democrats. He went on to criticise Trump, Boris and Brexit without challenge. You can take the Lefty out of the BBC, but you can’t take the BBC out of the Lefty.

    There was a cracking delivery to camera by one of Trump’s men, named aptly Mr Hook. Marr told him that there was ‘much hurt in this country’ over the killing in Iraq of General Terrorist. Marr was concerned that the terrorist wasn’t even given a seconds warning. Hook explained that it was ‘necessary to remove him from the battlefield’ 🙂 And also pointed out that the Iran regime is not used to being told what to do.

    The six production team members for the Marr Show are not I have discovered members, or former members of The Brexit Party.

    You’d hope that our state broadcaster would try to shine a light on the very dark topic of rape gangs and the complicity of agencies in their hideous crimes against children over decades.
    But the BBC website today tells you all you need to know – the BBC remains complicit itself in this sidelining of a deep scandal and serious threat to our culture, our communities and our values.
    The Manchester Pakistani rape gangs story has disgracefully not been followed up and is nowhere to be seen.
    The latest on the Rotherham scandal is now only featured on the South Yorkshire regional page.
    There is no attempt anywhere to pull all the strands together and ask questions about why there has been no public inquiry or commission called into this shocking cover-up.
    Yet the BBC website home page does provide space today for a very long piece about an old, white French writer who has been ostracised because of his writings about sex with teenagers.
    Ought we to be surprised? Sadly, no, because it’s what most of us have come to expect of the BBC.
    There’s a clamour by some commentators across Twitter right now to try and raise the rape gangs issue, led by the likes of Maajid Nawaz and Sarah Champion MP, and sterling work is still being done by Times journalist Andrew Norfolk to keep the subject in the public eye – but are these critics of the cover-up ever interviewed by the BBC?
    It wasn’t just Brexit that showed how out of touch the BBC is with the majority of its audience – time and again it fails, wilfully I’d say, to tap into the genuine concerns of people across the country.
    It’s complicit role in continuing to downplay the mass rape of young girls by Pakistani, Somali and other Muslim men is truly shameful.

    I can’t help but feel that the BBC continually run with this story because they can bash Trump. Thousands of offences such as murder and rape have been committed by diplomats from other countries who then escape justice by claiming Diplomatic Immunity. This particular tragedy was an accident.

    The report found that Islamists convicted of online offences received prison sentences three times longer, at 73.4 months on average, than their far-right counterparts, at 24.5 months, because of the current legal regime.

    Perhaps if they really ask themselves why this should be they would realise that “Far-Right Groups” don’t tend to leave a wake of dead bodies… In fact nothing to do with the “Legal Regime” more to do with the brutality of the islamic fanatics actions leading to longer sentences than a bunch of people caught marching with flags.

    Some might say that those expressing ‘far right views ‘ are just expressing views which liberals don’t like . We are not far from ‘approved thought ‘ .

    The other difference is as you say – the tendency for the occasional Muslim to find a bridge or pop concert and kill people who happen to be there . But maybe this doesn’t count for much now – as long as ‘we are all in it together ‘ and people can indulge in vicarious grief . And now the weather / what’s Meghan wearing ?

    There is mockery involved, but mainly of the law, selectively, fuelled by media driven mobs influencing weak politicians.

    As the BBC continues to cover the unemployed couple moving from UK to Canada – there has been little or no coverage of the worthies nominated by comrade Corbyn for the lords – Tom Watson was a given because some might say it was the cost of standing down from the Commons so that he could use parliamentary privilege to defame other innocent men .

    There is Bercow – who knew the Conservative government would not elevate the traitor so a fellow traitor – Corbyn – has done the job .

    Corbyn has also elevated a ‘happy helper ‘ chief of staff and ‘close friend ‘ of comrade’ call me len ‘ mcclusky

    All further highlighting the corruption of the gong system which is a shame to public life in 21st century Blighty …

    Wonder if it can be denied ? – or is it mutual backscratching ?

        Dover – I agree – the line the lords always rolls out about ‘experts ‘ and ‘revising chamber ‘ is just tosh . They rubber stamp stuff coming from the Commons in a day when it suits them and drag their feet when it’s legislation they don’t like .

        Unelected affront to Democracy .( and I didn’t even mention sham chakrabati ).

    The BBC has often been criticised for the number of repeats it broadcasts but the coverage of ‘Megxit’ has surely taken the repeat culture to a new level.

    Every news bulletin shows the same clip, often several times, of Harry and Meghan entering some function and entering a larger room to be greeted by a crowd lining the staircase.

    I am amazed that the news production team are not aware of the irritation caused by this constant repetition. It is lazy reporting and shows total disdain for the viewers.

    church pastor repeatedly raped children after “holy baths” he claimed would ward off evil.
    4 girls became pregnant & his wife Juliana Oluronbi arranged abortions. (1 girl had 5-6 abortions)
    Oluronbi was arrested as he tried to leave the UK for Nigeria

    I didn’t hear it on BBC news in our region

      Michael Oluronbi having come to the UK from Nigeria could be sent back there along with his wife, only thanks to the fact we have such a cowardly idle useless incompetent Tory government they almost certainly never will be.

        The troll maxi attempted to mitigate the evil of Muslim Pakistani paedo rape gangs by listing a series of Individual sex crimes the other day – I haven’t looked back to see if he included the ‘charming ‘ character in the list – he probably would do so.i was intrigued why he produced a long list – and whether it was another ‘cut and paste ‘job – his favourite – or whether he collected cases for his own reasons ….

          Yes he gave a cutNpasted list of offenders names from November
          I showed how UKdatabase outputs lists almost exactly the same
          and showed if you put in Mohammed as a search term, it outputs a huge list.

          He made an accusation that we EXCUSE white offenders
          Which is an extremely offensive accusation if you take him seriously, which I don’t.

          Applying the rule that when metroliberals throw out accusations they are actually PROJECTING
          is does seem that yes he is the one EXCUSING
          .. exclusing the Pak/Bangla gangs as saying there is a similar pattern in whites.

          Nope the thing is yes there are bad white people
          but the Pak raping gangs are subject to triple-coverup via their own-community, the-police and the-media

          Obviously certain exceptional white cases like Saville also had cover ups
          but for a normal white guy his own community hands him in, the police prosecute and the media report ..no triple cover up.

              On principle I favour free and fair debate
              but some people like trolls are disingenuous debaters
              They come to stir not to make fair debate.
              Their normal technique is to MISREPRESENT what the last person just said
              .. so it becomes annoying to have to point that out , and repeat what the person actually said.

              Banning, blocking , deplatforming & deleting posts are libmob’s behaviours that create unfair debate and bubbleworlds.
              If it was up to me, I would create a new thread called Disingenuous-posts and then move disingenuous posts there..

    What do do with the Houses of Parliament when the Commons and Lords transfer up north?

    Create a museum: ‘British Achievements of Military Excellence’.(B.A.M.E.).

    It would annoy the hell out of the BBC and other snowflakes.

    Can you believe the BBC’S website’s obsession with diversity,sexism,
    political correctness and BAME issues. Today they consider as a
    main story ” Fashion brand criticised over white models cornrow
    wigs.” Yes ,I didn’t know what the earth was the problem or what
    it even meant. Just read this MAIN story. You have never read
    such a load of b****cks. And every day they find at least one
    kind of similar absurdity .

      Demon – I can only assume that those claiming the BBC has a Tory bias are just so far to the left than one else will be viewed as ‘right wing ‘.

      On the upside it’s good to hear they don’t pay their licence tax .

    Last week the BBC was spreading doom and gloom about the economy…Andy Verity telling us it was all very poor, a weak performance that was very worrying….completely failing to mention that we were in the middle of an election campaign and one of the runners was aiming to ‘destroy capitalism’….hardly inspiring confidence in the future. Nor of course did the Remain side’s shenanigans as they tried to cause chaos and delay in order to thwart Brexit which resulted in enormous uncertainty…which the BBC suddenly forgot all about after having spent so much time berating the Brexiteers for allegedly causing uncertainty by trying to implement Brexit…how dare they!!

    The BBC also forgot to tell us in the same news bulletins, needed so that we could have some context, that Germany and China amongst many others were also suffering…and yet they knew of course,…..here’s the BBC reports…

    China’s economic growth hits 30-year low

    German economy sees weakest growth since 2013

    But all I heard was Britain is doomed…it’s the sick man of Europe…the unspoken accusation…it’s all #duetobrexit.
