Weekend Thread 8 February 2020

Isn’t it great to see the fortunes of the Far Left Biased BBC taking a turn for the worse? Challenged at home over compulsory funding for the monster as well as seeing its biased agenda being undermined ;ranging from stopping Brexit to minimising Islamic terrorism as well as its hatred for the American President running into the sand . We are winning .

    Just heard the Bach Collegium Japan render the Ode to Joy on Radio 3’s Early Music Show. Only a millennial or perhaps Stormzy would call Beethoven “Early”. It is his 250th year anniversary and the C Minor Symphony is a great piece, and the wonderful Bach Collegium do not only do Early Music.
    But having heard the choral bit many times on Radio 3 this year I begin to wonder if there is a message from the Beeb that I’m missing. Could anyone suggest one?

      Obviously the BBC do not realise what music, when they were all Wagnered out, the National Socialists in Germany in the 1930s would turn to. If I recall correctly, Beethoven’s Third and Ninth ranked fairly high on their playlists, not that anyone had playlists back then.

      Not good connotations, BBC.

      But then you may have known that, eh, BBC and chose to overlook it for other reasons?

      Strange how the BBC assumes that the new government want a relationship with the MSM . Why would it ?
      It has 4 years to deliver . If it doesn’t well find another brand . Why give the BBC ministers to Rip into – as Emily of Tourette’s Robinson would do . Abusive biased confrontation as opposed to reasoned exploration or challenge to political assertion .let them boil interviewing fellow far leftist snowflakes of various hues .

    When the mosques control their electorate and the muslim council of Britain runs courses on how to complain and harrass the media ..what does one expect?

    It would be interesting to find how many muslims complain to the BBC and other MSM about their editorial policies on reporting muslim criminals as the bbc seem to be unduly lenient in this direction

    I maintain that rape gangs are racially aggravated crimes as anyone who knows details of the abuse given to the victims will find clearly apparent therefore their “cult” is a significant factor, as relevant as german war memorabilia or book on Hitler in the home of a supposed far right criminal joyfully reported time and time again by the bbbc

    And I don’t know about the rest on this site but I find it highly strange that our prisons are full of islamic individuals actively recruiting, how many other highly religious people make up the rest of the prison population ? Quakers. Mormons, etc ? religious people but all criminals ? hmm so much for their morality

    Religion ? or a political extremist organisation ?

    There is a group known as Skeptical Science which has taken it upon itself to make a blacklist of any academic that opposes the climate change madness. It has been endorsed by such as Michael Mann.

    Their website has been hacked and revealed the disturbing lengths they will go to to shut down any debate. I’m sure the investigative journalists of the BBC will be all over it in 3, 2, 1…..

    Amazingly the BBC thought a picture of trump with tan lines (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/08/trump-tan-line-picture-forehead-hair) worthy of comment in the World News bulletin. But to compound their obvious show of anything anti-Trump, they informed us that it was receiving much comment on “social media”, using as example ” You can never get rid of the stain of impeachment” i.e. again the BBC & lefties have variable rules. In other circumstances an acquittal would be end of story.

        UV photoshop is familiar to the BBC as it turns black into white sometimes, useful to the BBC when they display library pics of hands holding knives on their website when reporting stabbers in London,

        for some inexplicable reason the BBC then become suddenly aware of the fact that there are more white people than black in this country

    bottomline : temporary anomalies are WEATHER not CLIMATE.
    The longer you look at a place and the more samples you take the more an anomaly will be likely.
    In this instance yes a warm wind can come in from somewhere else and push the reading up temporarily.

    I can appreciate the arguments against extreme nationalism, but I also have opinions about what my taxes go towards and the importance of my culture, it is indeed informative how the bbc goes on and on about our minorities’ cultures and condemns the majority of British who wish to celebrate and protect our culture as racists

    4 times today I have tried Radio 4. 12.50 switched on for the end of the Food programme. A young man with a strong accent, possible Caribbean, saying we had to go vegan to stop the world ending in 10-12 years. If it really is the case, may I suggest it is already too late. Switched on later to learn that farmers shouldn’t spread human waste on their land even after treatment, it is not suitable to be spread on food producing land. I could have told them that years ago, but apparently it is all due to vicious Tory cuts. Then switched on to hear an excerpt from a Radio drama about two Muslim women. Finally switched on to hear about women being physically abused by their partners.

    Not once a programme without a woke message.

    Each time I have switched off within a couple of minutes of switching on. Note to self: retune to Classic FM sharpish.

    Fed, Taff, Stew, Brissles and all you gals and guys wishing for the demise of this irritating intolerancy known as the bbbc; can we perhaps do a post where we all agree that after the hated crappery of the state-funded tosserati is consigned to some sort of third-form history, a proper New World informative, interesting and Pro-British service is designed to reflect the thoughts and aspirations of real British People?

    Years ago, I had to attend a ‘management course’ (huh) where we all had to describe how we had all succeeded after a particular business situation, and how we got there to achieve success.

    It was an enlightening experience, and good people here are much better qualified than me to have ‘been there’ as well, but assuming that the bbbc will soon be a thing of the past, I’d love to understand how we actually did it! Answers on a post near me…

    We will, of course, win the battle, but this dear site will be foremost in my second chapter on how we dealt with the problem the bbbc has.

    (My first chapter will be how I enjoyed chatting with good chums here to understand some inventive sort of interest in this momentous issue..)!

    (And I’m a much better interviewer than Nick Robinson, and the rest of the weedy pillocks infesting W1AA – you have to ask questions, not tell them).
