      I could spend all my life giving examples of the BBC propaganda. Today looking at the BBC website I could immediately spot ten things I could write about. I have posted two below. But ultimately it is now time for action and proving to others what is happening.

      For me I am also interested in looking at the bigger picture. I have a good idea what is happening in the universities but there needs to be an examination at a political level.

      So there is a need for an equivalent of a biasedbbc website but dedicated to examining our politicians. It is our politicians that are ultimately allowing the destruction of England and Britain. So we need to examine them and their activities on a weekly basis; politicians acting at a national, regional and local level.

        I should add I find this website invaluable as a resource for chronologically reporting on the BBC propaganda. But I think additional things now need to be done. Unfortunately we don’t have the resources and privileges the BBC has. We need some ex-bankers or stock market traders to donate.

    From our local bbc propaganda station.

    ***

    Is the internet responsible for the spread of misinformation about coronavirus?

    MPs have warned that wrong information about Covid-19 has been allowed to spread during the pandemic, from dangerous hoax treatments to the idea that the virus was created in a lab.

    Do you think social media companies have a duty to stop misinformation from spreading? Perhaps you know someone who buys into some of these theories?

    ***
    Rather sweet they are sticking with this on a ‘tell it often enough’ basis.

    There are a fair number of comments… which, frankly, could be going better. Especially for MPs and the MSM.

      I accidently saw a bit of the BBC News at the weekend. Deaths, masks, deaths, masks.

      I realised why I stopped listening to BBC News or Current Affairs programming in March and haven’t been tempted back.

      I gather from sites like this and the odd headline that pass by my browser window that the only certainty is that whatever Trump and Boris propose or do is wrong.. plus ça change.

      The UK government is accused of having “actively avoided” looking for Russian interference during the EU referendum.

      The Intelligence and Security Committee’s long-awaited report said the government was “playing catch-up”, despite evidence of interference in the Scottish independence referendum.

      The committee called for “immediate action” by government and intelligence agencies to tackle the threat.

      Every comment knows full well who is ‘accusing’ with cute quotes, and why.

      Guest, which coronavirus do you mean?

      The BBC spread misinformation just as much as the internet and the BBC are, of course, on the internet themselves.

      They refer to a coronavirus but that could be the common cold. They did that this morning on the TOADY Programme. It could be influenza in its more common varieties or the rarer ones. Covid-19 should be refered to by the BBC as Covid-19 or as the novel (ie. new) coronavirus. Otherwise they are just as guilty of spreading misinformation.

      The best way to stop misinformation spreading is to sack Jon Sopel – he did it again this morning. Also to regularly interview some good virologists and medical people and ask searching questions. The BBC, I note, are belatedly starting to ask about mutations of the Covid-19 virus.

    What jobs are available post-lockdown?

    According to the latest jobs market report from employment website CV-Library, the number of vacancies in the UK fell by 62.7% in the second quarter of 2020. And for those jobs that are being advertised, competition is stiff, with the average application-to-job ratio rising by 84%. So, with more people battling it out for jobs, which industries are actually hiring staff? And which face a more uncertain future?

    Press on

    Alongside their support for the ‘Don’t arrest me, I’m black’ campaign the BBC have long endorsed a pro-drugs ‘legalise it, we’ll advertise it’ push.

    You can add ‘Don’t arrest me, I’m a woman’ to the list.

    For the latest anti-police, anti-law enforcement (just some laws they don’t like, mind you) from our BBC, I’m sorry to say we have to take a quick shufti Down Under

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-53495146

    BBC: ‘Sydney police ‘asked woman to remove tampon’ in strip-search’

    ‘It was among instances of police misconduct uncovered in an investigation into five controversial strip-searches across Sydney last year.’

    But don’t run away with the idea that these incidents occurred on the tough urban mean streets of Sydney and that the victims of police excess were the downtrodden underclass…

    ‘Most took place at music festivals…’

    And at the end of the BBC report after they have taken all their shots at the cops and made the anti-police case, for a little balance we get…

    ‘An officer told that inquiry that strip-searches at festivals were necessary because of concerns over drug use, after several young people died from overdoses.’

      I wonder if the cashless society we’re heading towards will prove popular amongst the followers of Islam.

      Taxi firms, barber shops and fast food outlets are often areas of employment popular within the Muslim community. All rely on cash.

      All recognised as being regularly used for less-than-honest financial dealings – below minimum wages and subsequent benefit fraud, cash in hand pay and tax evasion, illegal hours and employing illegal immigrants, limited adherence to employment and equality laws, hygiene and health and safety regulations – and as fronts for criminal ‘dealings’.

        BBC related .. would be interesting if somebody would do a survey as to how many households pay the TV tax in predominantly Muslim “no go” areas? Also, if a Capita whistle blower would spill the beans on what their instructions are in relation to the visiting of houses in Muslim areas

    I’m sure that some of you have heard the term ‘BIPOC’ before, but it’s a new one on me.

    ‘Black, Indigenous and People Of Colour’. I’m sure we’ll hear it again. Often. Although if, like me, you no longer watch or listen to any bbbc output at all and do not pay for their privilege, maybe not so much.

    Roots

    Those of us of a certain age will have enjoyed, or at least recall, the US series on UK TV in the 1970s

    Supposedly a true story, in fact ‘researchers refuted Haley’s claims that, as the basis for Roots, Haley had traced his own ancestry back through slavery to a very specific individual and village in Africa’. Oh, well.

    Searching for my slave roots
    By Malik Al Nasir, as told to Ed Thomas
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/extra/3k9u8lh178/Searching_for_my_slave_roots

    It’s a long piece with a lot of Who Do You Think You Are genealogy and you may take it as true or embellished, as history or as romance.

    Let’s just focus on the opening section and the obvious polemics being pushed.

    ‘The poet Malik Al Nasir has been on a journey to find his roots as a black Liverpudlian.’

    [Wiki] ‘Malik is a social commentator and has periodically participated in news items on issues relating to refugees, social exclusion, asylum seekers in the UK, social unrest in Liverpool and racism.’

    Malik does poetry and music – all racially themed – and is pretty popular with the BBC and Channel 4 and of course the Guardian.

    ‘It was one o’clock in the morning and I was watching a TV documentary about 100 years of black footballers. This was 2002, and there weren’t many programmes about black people, so it was worth staying up for.’

    A nice thumbs up in support of the BBC diversity push there.

    ‘Then a face appeared that made me catch my breath. A Victorian footballer. He looked comfortable, he didn’t look out of place, he looked like a boss. Very much a black British gentleman.’

    That’s nice. A breath of fresh air to hear some positivity about how blacks were regarded in history in Britain.

    ‘We looked identical. But Andrew Watson’s life was very different to mine. ‘

    Oh really, how so?

    ‘The first time I was racially abused was in school. It was 1972. I was six years old and sitting in school assembly. The head teacher was playing a taped story called The Story of Little Black Sambo.
    I could hear every offensive line booming out at the morning assembly. Other kids were laughing, giggling and pointing at me.’

    This sounds a little unlikely to me. Artistic, or poetic licence? I guess we have to take his word for it.

    ‘In England in the 70s it was normal to see books with titles like Ten Little Nigger Boys or The Proud Golliwog. Nobody seemed to think this was a problem.’

    But, oddly, they’ve been banned for decades now.

    I suppose if your job is race campaigner you have to hope raciallism is always there or else you’re out of a job.

    Midweek thread…Weekend thread…Start the Week thread…Midweek thread…

    Back in the day, this website used to do some interesting and important journalism. BBC programme makers used to brave the lion’s den to see what people were saying about their programmes.

    What is the point of it now? Looking back through the archives, it’s years since it broke a single story. As far as I can see, the only useful function it serves is as a sort of daytime creche for Guest Who.

    Even the design is about 15 years out of date. This site badly needs a shakeup and an editor who gives a toss about it. At the moment it’s a tired irrelevance.

            Unless David Vance resumes his activities here or Alan returns from running his fast food outlet we are pretty much stuck with reader generated comment and in some ways that is no bad thing, particularly if readers concentrate on examples of observed BBC bias.

            (It easy to stray from that when the lunatics are not only running the asylum but they are busy re-purposing it to house the sane!)

            Producing a lead topic must take quite a bit of effort if it is to be more than just reacting to the latest newspaper headlines and to be effective needs quite a bit of skill that isn’t the same as that required of (and delivered by) the moderator.

            (I have often wondered if Pug’s more lengthy contributions might be better presented as a guest topic).

            I wish when people say ‘things can be better’ they would give some examples of what they have in mind. Technically this site seems to adapt well to different sized viewing screens, so in that respect at least it certainly isn’t ‘fifteen years behind’. (Perhaps it is too ‘white’ and needs to be red, green, gold and black bro?)

              Jim
              I’ve put up topics in the past and by page two it becomes a general comment section . There are people who don’t read the comments of other contributors and just ‘place ‘ their comments and go away – there is limited streams of exchanges . This is. An observation not a criticism – people are free to choose how they use the site .

              I note that the Pollyanna poster hasn’t come back to me yet – the nature – of course – of a site like this does not give an indication of the nature of the poster – for instance is Pollyanna a 14 year old boy or an employee of the BBC . ?

              It’s all very well trolling along – saying it’s a load of out of date crap and then running away . Presumably Pollyanna would prefer the site to be closed on the grounds of ‘irrelevancy ‘ – I bet the BBC and the far left would prefer that too .

              As for mr Vance – I communicated with him once about how this site is going and have had no guidance about the day to day admin or the three threads a week I put up – which I adopted as a continuous practice from my predecessor .
              If anyone has better knowledge of this site and alternative methods of administering it I’d be very grateful and will not be ‘defensive ‘ to change .

              It is not my site . I get no gain from it other than my tiny attempt to end the BBC .when I get thanks that’s nice but when I get a Pollyanna turning up for a sneer I use it as a time to re-evaluate .

                    Hi Fedup2, I think you are doing a grand job. I read and enjoy most of the posts on these pages as it offers some light relief,

                    The BBC are past as we all know ‘saving’ as an organisation as they themselves have become ‘institutionally wacist’ towards the white indigenous population of GB.

                    Tonight was a fine example. By chance I caught news at 10 discussing Kenya and the uprising for the people of Kenya inspired by the MAU MAU against the nasty colonial BRITISH, who when they left, gave power to the ‘uncle Tom’ black elites who then impoverished the Kenyans… the ‘largely peaceful’ uprising was met with brutality by the colonial British who need to know that the MAU MAU were never mentioned as brutal themselves or the fact they killed in far greater numbers, blacks who did not side with their tribe.

                    Just like the BBC tribe, trying to eradicate and re-write history, this site is invaluable as a historical snapshot to fall of democracy, free speech and all forms of piss-taking.

                    So thank you Fedup2 for all your efforts

      Re: pollyanna: “What is the point of [biasedbbc]?”

      Dear Mx Pollyanna,

      Thank you for your interest. This site provides an up to date and chronological account of the BBC propaganda. The archive is an invaluable and essential resource for researchers who wish to examine a specific news event, or a much broader issue and to see how the BBC covered it or didn’t cover it and also to see how that coverage has changed over the years.

      Most of the entries are provided by volunteers, including myself, who are astounded, bemused or concerned about what they have just heard, seen, or read from the BBC and this website provides a place for them to record, give an opinion, and to share this with others.

      It is also a community of concerned citizens that discuss, question, and learn about issues and events in real life and how the BBC is reporting on them or not reporting on them.

      Regards

        It is self evident that the BBC should become a commercial production company doing stuff people would be willing to pay for / watch – with a bit of news and weather tapped on . The rest of it ? – disposable tosh … sky can run the soaps and the Saturday night stuff be the rest woke – sorry – won’t be missed in their current form …

    Update on the tragic case of French care-worker Axelle Dorier, murdered in Lyon last week.

    The BBC briefly ran the story before quickly disappearing it, perhaps when rumours began emerging that her killers were called Mohamed Y and Youcef T.

    The identities have now been confirmed in at least one French newspaper.

    So once again the MO of the BBC has been to publish a story without including any ’embarrassing’ facts, then to remove the story asap when those facts emerge.

    And once again, imagine the endless furore had two white Frenchmen murdered a North African muslima.

    However clicking on the headline: Archer reports racist abuse and says sport is fickle – takes you to an article that seems to forget all about the “racist abuse” suggested in their headline but rather becomes a defence of Joffra Archer, who was dropped by England Cricket team for breaking social distance rules – he went partying with friends one of whom tested positive for Coronavirus – as well as his admiration for Marcus Rashford.

    The “Archer reports racist abuse” of the headline is actually a very minor part of the article saying that Joffra Archer in a Daily Mail reported receiving racist abuse on his instagram account to the police. But other than that there are no other details about it .

    It is worth repeating what David Sedgwick said to David Vance in May (IN BBC WE TRUST thread):

    “… any Conservative MP who supports the BBC is not a conservative, it’s as simple as that” (at 42:40 in the interview).

    I would go much further. MPs of all persuasions waft around pretending that patriots like TR, KH etc. are ‘enemies of the state’ but it is they who are the enemies. The types who think and say and believe that the Begum thing and her ilk are ‘British’ and that Sad Dick is a ‘Londoner’.

    For the casual visitor to this site I should point out the obvious here – it is nothing to do with skin colour.

    As for the Border Farce etc., in lighter moments it reminds me of the Dad’s Army episode ‘The Deadly Attachment’ where Walker takes the fish and chip order for the captured U-boat crew. Nowadays the invading force are wecomed in and given a house and untold benefits.

    Apologies to Pollyanna for the following irrelevant comment…. 😉

    Just watched an item, admittedly Sky, where a Rastafarian styled Trevor Robinson bemoans that there is not enough diversity in the advertising industry. I stopped what I was doing and thought, what ? does he never watch any ads on the box ? but his main gripe is that the agencies do not employ enough BAMEs. He also said that Companies do not know who their target audience are, and only sell to people who reflect themselves. Again that stumped me, as there are more blacks portrayed in selling products than there are players in the football league !

        Charlie- due to my very limited access to advertising I now treat it as entertainment – almost comedy – when the advertising agency fronts someone with the now traditional black male blond female couple .

        When I was looking for a career I was really interested in advertising . The use of humour and clever strap lines was a real challenge . Methods of getting people to get brand loyalty / recognition was a real challenge .

        But what do we get now ? Box ticking – the ads are as dismal as the programmes .

          Fed – I can understand why you were once interested in advertising. I remember a couple of my favourite ads from years back. One showed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Eve was trying to get Adam to take a bite out of her apple but he was refusing, no matter what she said to entice him. Then she says, “They’re French Golden Delicious.” Adam gives in to temptation and bites.
          Another one I remember is when Franz Schubert is persuaded by his friends to come out to the bierkeller even though he hasn’t finished writing his symphony. In the pub, he is asked, “Schubert, what about your unfinished symphony?” To which he replies, “What about my unfinished Kronenbourg?”
          I never see ads like that now. One reason is, as you say, the relentless box-ticking requirements. Another, I suggest, is the degeneration of our education system. Most of the population now are not aware of bible stories or high art. They don’t have the frame of reference that the precious cultural heritage of our civilisation once provided. And if potential customers have lost that, clever ads like the two mentioned will be incomprehensible and won’t increase the sales of any product.

            Zel, its not only ‘most of the population’ that has no cultural awareness, but also those ‘kids’ who are employed and own the Ad agencies. They have to produce an ad to present to the client, so before starting a new project they will be considering how to incorporate the now obligatory mixed family !

            White men, women and children don’t exist in the world of advertising- unless they’re connected to another race. And where a ‘family’ is not required then shoo in a mixed race young girl. Ok if its TopShop that needs promoting, but the only ad left that is aimed at me, is “Its June Dad !

            Speaking of Murray, I tried to find the ad he did with Damon Hill for DHL or some other delivery company on YouTube. It doesn’t seem to have made it there.

            Story line goes Damon is worried by his office deadline, hires a courier. Murray is there pushing the delivery company line. Too late. Damon has already hired his courier for something to be taken to Scarborough or some similar place.

            A motorbike courier comes in wearing the Hill colours on his full face helmet. Takes the helmet off to reveal three days of stubble and only slightly more than that by way of teeth as he smiles and says: “Package for the seaside, John?”.

            Damon looks plaintively at Murray.

    Its all primitive thinking. Ignoring the rules of, ‘Economy of Scale’.

    Dear Priti and Boris,

    Since there is no effort to stop the daily invasion from across the Channel, (and indeed only condone), the (“Great” [gullible]) British public has to conclude the invasion is sanctioned by the UK Government. This being the case, you should start to consider saving the taxpayer a considerable sum by chartering a one-thousand or more person capacity vessel which could dock at an appropriate port in France and pick the invaders up. This will have the two-fold effect of saving money, time and indeed will help secure the Human Rights of the invaders. Please make sure they have access (and money) to make their Customs free purchases before departing France.
    Thank you so kindly, you are both in the public’s hearts and minds daily.

    Who could possibly be behind such a holocaust? Naturally the French authorities and media are utterly baffled, but here’s a clue: after the gruesome murder of a priest in Normandy in 2016 by two muslims, ISIS urged the faithful to destroy churches throughout the West.

    It looks like some of the faithful heard the call.

      There is no evidence of “Russian interference” with the Brexit referendum.

      The report was written when Grieve was the chairman. He thus twisted the absence of evidence to criticize the government for not looking for it. If only the government had looked, they may have found something! Hands up anyone whose Brexit vote was biased by Russian propaganda.

      As to the foul Bercow, it is worth pointing out that there is no right for a former Speaker to become a peer. It is a custom, no more than that. But Bercow behaved in ways which were without doubt partial and unconstitutional. He degraded the office of Speaker. Added to which he is a bully who is facing many accusations of terrible treatment of his staff. Quite the fellow for this brain dead MP to defend. By their friends shall ye know them.

      Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield, just hung on to his seat at the last election by the skin of his teeth. He is a very old man and clearly is suffering from advanced dementia . But in common with with all the Remainer old farts he simply can’t accept the idea that he was on the losing side, it’s just not fair .
      But seriously this will be added to the Remainer myth that the referendum wasn’t conducted fairly , even though they had the government machine on their side and that they were cheated out of victory. I think that this myth is now so deeply engrained that even the myth makers themselves believe it. Unless Boris finds ways of burning our bridges with the EU so we can’t rejoin , if he loses the next election we will be back in it before you can say Tourette’s Robinson.

    As I was reading I started to insert the term BBC where ever Russia was mentioned – it fitted very well .

    Also the Grieve report couldn’t wait to link the referendum to ‘Russian interference ‘ citing RT as delivering pro brexit messaging .
    Then I thought – who actually watches RT?
    And
    What other bits of the MSM delivers a pro brexit
    message

    Lastly – for a laugh – the report moans about foreign powers attempting to influence elections / votes . Apparently Russia does .

    But then remember the spectacle to Cameron sitting a foreign leader in number 10 and telling us we’d be at the back of his queue – that foreign power being Obama’s America .

    And lastly the chairman of the intel committee sneaking off to Brussels to discuss with a foreign power – the EU – how to influence a UK vote .

      Obama was overt state sponsored propaganda, not some pro Brexit op ed on RT!

      The point is, if one is anti-Brexit, pro-BBC or generally left leaning in politics, Russian interference is and was a real and influencing threat.

      If your politics swing the other way, it’s overplayed chicanery from the usual suspects; insulting to the intelligence of every British voter.

      I think the left-wing Remainer traitors who run the BBC are afraid that the Russians may influence us into thinking that Marxism has failed and resides in the past.

        StewGreen. The system is well and truly broken. Most Borders such as ports have completely insufficient detention facilities. If 12 illegals arrive from war torn places such as Albania (?!!)seeking asylum for genuine reasons such as “I split up with my girlfriend” a problem arises when there is say only two cells. And then ‘children’ under 18 even if they have a full beard and look about 30 have to be dealt with by Social Services.
        The only solution is to bail these unfortunates so they have a future appointment at an Immigration Office. Alternatively they might not be so anxious to keep that important date and disappear into the black (can I still say that) economy and may very well be hand washing your car in the near future.
        The airlines and ferry companies refuse to take them back and the Border Farce Water Taxi merely escorts them in.
        We have the hooman rights lawyers (with special thanks to Cherie and Tony Blair) to pat on the back for all of this. Frankly I doubt if the proposed points system will make a jot of difference.

    Next time the beeb moan about online bullying, they should be reminded of what their fellow-journos at the NYT did to Tucker Carlson: deliberately and knowingly put his and his family’s lives at risk by revealing his address to the army of haters that read their trash rag. He was forced to move.

      Thanks-i watched this on twitter and it shows the length to which the woke want to put dissenters to sleep.
      If the addresses of every BBC employee was leaked onto the internet i wonder if their conduct would change ?

      The nearest we ve had so far is the intimidation applied to bojo when he had his private home and Dom Cummings and family as well as mr rees mogg ..

      Its a two way street eh?

        They are very scared of Tucker. He is young, very bright and a brilliant speaker. Ideal for President in 2024.

            Not a good move for him. He is fine at Fox. He can address the voters from there. We could do with a politician of his calibre.

      We have to be careful about staying upto date.
      Today is Wednesday
      Almost 36 hours ago the NYT tweeted a denial 2.5 hours after Tucker’s own tweet
      At 5am Tuesday they tweeted
      “@nytimes does not plan to publish Tucker Carlson’s residence, which Carlson was aware of before his broadcast tonight”

      Tucker supporters took that as implying
      ‘The NYT is scared of Tucker’s warning
      so we won’t publish his exact address
      but probably will mention the district
      and we know antifa will get the exact location from that’

        You can imagine the discussion in the editorial meeting –
        Does fox have an idea where we live – or where our wives and kids are – ? What would be the effect of publication ?

        In my view what happens in the States recurs in the UK soon after – so will he get the various addresses of maitlisssss Or Marr – or where kuensbergs ‘ mum lives the next time they ‘go personal ‘ on people the BBC doesn’t like ?

      @Digg sounds like someone made it up
      Cos in reality the Polish election was closer
      51 to 49 percent

      More precisely Andrzej Duda beat Rafal Trzaskowski by 51.2 percent to 48.8 percent

    Former BBC presenter on child abuse charges. I wonder if there could be a catalogue of these Savillettes?

    Oh dear oh dear, this does not sound like the Tories have any intention of ending the TV tax, and it also sounds like they are a million miles away from what the people of the UK, and expressed on this site really think.

      Is it a surprise – we switched from Project Fear for Brexit every day – which people rightly ignored – then to the election where they were desperately trying to make comrade Corbyn electable – then to cap it – putting the fear of death every day all the time into the locker up population ….. which people can’t break out of ….

    ITV local news from Harrogate pushing the dream of Hydrogen fuel for buses etc.
    It appeared to be RyseHydrogen PR construction
    (It featured a head from one of their partner companies)
    ITV @NityaGRajan let a Green Party person imply that powering buses by hydrogen from windfarms is a good PRACTICAL thing .
    The piece featured about 5 head shots none were critical.

    Such pieces normally imply that all you need to do is get a bit of electricity from a windfarm & split water into hydrogen
    they never mention that in the real world that is costly & impractical
    so all hydrogen comes from treating methane with steam.

    BBC Local news : a Hull Labour MP has stood up and asked a question about Hull in parliament.
    Ha, they literally played the 45 second click and moved on.
    As if they had ticked a box with the Labour Party.
    Almost all the region’s MPs are Tories
    but they are very rarely featured.

    So lets get this right, rabidly sour remainer Dominick Greig writes a report suggesting that there “may” have been some “Fancy Bears” action before the EU election but cites no real evidence of claim – just a suggestion that the Government didnt investigate enough and BBC fake “News” spends the last two days over-egging this storm in a teacup.
    Just a couple of months before Aunty the “worlds most trusted” was very disinterested into the non publication of Sadik Khans report into why Pakistani men seem to be more than over represented when it comes to being members of “grooming” gangs. All we got was the members of parliament need a safe space to digest the report – what happened to the “safe spaces” of the victims of the these pedophile rape gangs .
    Whoever here originally penned the term for the BBC as “The House of Saville” was absolutely spot on.
