Start the Week Thread 27 January 2020

Watchers of the Far Left Biased BBC will be heartened by the fear of cut backs and , hopefully , job losses . Perhaps their world isn’t as cosy as they assumed with the accompanying shock that a growing number of people just see its’ bias and care less for it .

    I love the term ‘biased by omission’
    Where our beloved tax payer funded broadcaster can chose not to report on what’s going on under it’s own nose.

    I’ve posted this clip before and it’s taken from the ‘bbc journalism guide’ page one.

    News is everywhere and you can choose what to listen to and make your own informed judgement.

    But there’s only one ‘news’ outlet that I know of who constantly tries to remind me how trusted it is.

    Horrid droning sound coming from another room, made me fear the house was under attack from a rogue V1, fired in a fit of pique from the EU epicentre.
    But it was only the telly, with Orla ‘reporting’ from Palestine again. No wonder poor old Fergal got PTSD, maybe they shared too many hotel rooms?

    Notice one of Orla’s interviewees muttered something about doing what Nelson Mandela did in SA. The Israelis would be extremely foolish to replicate FW de Klerk’s chosen option of ‘negotiating’ away power. You can see why the Palestinians would love to copy the ANC formula. Take a close look at collapsing SA, and you could figure out what would happen to Israel.
    Can’t see Bibi going for it. Or any of his successors. I’m old enough to remember Moshe Dayan, let alone Arik Sharon; they didn’t strike one as quitters. Abbas is going to have a tough job, if his answer is ‘NO’.

    Palestinian spokeman on R4Today on Tuesday morning
    ‘Orangeman bad, cos whatever his solution it will not offer East Jerusalem as Palestinian capital’
    … news of peace plan comes out and Trump & the Israelis are offering East Jerusalem as Palestinian capital.
    R4 News at 10 Palestinian spokeman
    ‘Orangeman bad… this peace plan is a non-starter’

    “Wales to bring in smacking ban after assembly vote”
    The Welsh Assembly is out of touch with the people of Wales and should be abolished. Like Al Beeb, it is not fit for purpose.

      Whilst I agree this Blair legacy proves that the devolution ratchet only works one way.

    Newsnight puts BBC resources at Greenpeace’s disposal
    Newsnight has combined with Greenpeace Unearthed in a ‘special investigation
    which is actually lobbying to stop the UK government making its own decesions on export guarantees


  7. taffman says:

    “French police clash with firefighters at Paris demonstration”
    Has Al Beeb covered this ?

    “Stay European”:

    “After Brexit day, millions of UK citizens will lose our European citizenship. Stay European is the campaign for an EU associate citizenship scheme that would give us the option to continue as EU members as individuals.”

    So, in addition to member states, there will be member individuals?

    Get over it, kids. Move on.
