      How many Radio stations discriminate against people on the basis that they have white skin ?

      – BBC AsianNetwork is basically BBC brown skin radio
      – BBC 1Xtra is basically BBC black skin radio
      – Capital Xtra is basically Capital black skin radio (except Westwood)
      https://www.capitalxtra.com/radio/schedule/
      – Also internet radio like http://www.colourfulradio.com/presenter/

        ‘Ang on a minute; there are several foreign BBC outlets mentioned, but only the Brits pay for it all…

        Is that correct?

        If so, can they get all the foreign lot to cough up as well, or perhaps take it out of the Overseas Budget for despots, crooks, thieves etc. and their ugly families?

        I don’t see why a person in Droitwich, aged 75, has to pay for some lazy git somewhere else in the world, to listen to the anti British tosh coming out of W1A1AA.

        (or Whaaaaah for short).

      On the BBC today you will find the following headlined across the website, from its homepage, news homepage, world news homepage and in every news related article listed as a top story:

      2020-08-28-1235-news-article-c.jpg
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/election-us-2020-53923363/trump-s-speech-from-criteria-met-to-falsehoods-and-lies

      There is hardly any pretence from the BBC nowadays. It is a full on campaigning organisation pushing narratives rather than news, with an annual expenditure of nearly £5 billion and employing over 22,000 staff.

      And unfortunately wherever I looked today there was full on agenda pushing, and with the BBC in full support of Black Lives Matter there was hardly a news, sports, business, children’s article where the BBC didn’t shoe-horn in the BLM agenda.

      The BBC has clearly moved far beyond bias into full on activism. It is now part of the “woke” campaign to overthrow traditional Western society, its people and its cultures. There is no saving the BBC. It has to be defunded.

      This morning I was confronted with the following on the BBC’s news channel for children:

      2020-08-28-1016-cbbc-newsround09.jpg

      Can you spot any agenda pushing?

      And its worse, far worse. As one of these stories is the announcement of a massive expansion of the BBC “news” output to children from the start of next month including a new youtube channel.

      The BBC is presenting a distorted image of the world to British kids to brainwash them into the woke agenda and the overthrow of traditional western values and culture. The BBC have absolutely no qualms in brainwashing children, a tactic used down the ages from the Ottoman Empire to Nazi Germany & Stalinist Russia.

        Perhaps the PM, Gavin Williamson or Oliver Dowden would care to cast their eyes over this propaganda and make a statement.
        If not, is there anyone else in the HoC or HoL who has the moral fibre to bring it to their attention?
        Schools should be stopped from using bBC ‘resources’ both in the classroom and for homework purposes. Everyone can see the blatant political agenda so either they agree with it or not.
        If parents want to expose their families to brainwashing on a private basis that is their prerogative, although doesn’t that amount to abuse?

      Jacob Blake did have a knife
      .. he could have being going to get it out.
      They knew he was a crimbo, not a mentally ill guy
      so a scenario where he is grabbing a gun would be possible.
      Once an officer has drawn a weapon, he is prepared to kill
      .. it’s not like a cowboy film where you can neutralise a gun man by wounding him.

          Stew, US cops always assume there is a gun in any vehicle, well the ones who are still alive do.

          Way back in 1980 my American friends taught me how to deal with the US Police. Bear in mind it was a 56mph overall speed limit back then which was rigidly enforced. If you were stopped and remained in the vehicle, you turned off the ignition and kept your hands on the steering wheel.

          If you were told to step outside the vehicle by an Officer you would do so, moving away from the vehicle, usually to the hood (bonnet) centre. If you were asked to show your licence and it was in a pocket, then you told the officer which pocket it was in and ask if it is OK to remove it. If it was in the vehicle, usual place was in the sun visor slot, you would tell the Officer and either let him or his colleague remove it or do it ‘blind’ and one handed, keeping your other hand visible on the roof or windshield.

          If your licence and passport were in the trunk (boot) or elsewhere in the car then you would tell the Officer and ask permission before reaching for it or let the Officer do it. That is where Jacob Blake went wrong. He did not ask the Officer to allow him into the vehicle, he pulled away from the Officer’s grip and he did not say what he was reaching for.

          Maybe a young Officer assumed the worst – was apparently correct to – and panicked a bit, hence the seven shots rather than one or two. Jacob Blake is very lucky to still be alive.

        I watched Lord Hall’s fluffy retirement interview with the BBC Media Editor Amol Rajan.
        Hall described the discussions over the last licence fee agreement with the then Culture Secretary, John Whittingdale, when the BBC agreed, after many extra financial concessions by the government (inflation proofing the fee, making iPlayer use subject to licence, and a 12 year run for the deal ) to fund the free over-75s licence fee.
        What he then did not get asked (and never will be) is the simple question – why did you renege on the deal?
        Plainly the government has no intention of fighting back or withdrawing any of the concessions.
        Amol muttered something about poor pensioners which was brushed aside.

          “And the final answer, frankly, is the vigorous use of state power to coerce and repress … I firmly believe that repression can be a great, civilising instrument for good. Stamp hard on certain ‘natural’ beliefs for long enough and you can almost kill them off.”

      I usually listen to a bit of the Today programme in the morning.

      One thing that strikes me, besides the left wing bias, is the poor quality of the equipment. How often does “the line go down”? It seems to happen several times in every programme. Sometimes the interview is lost, sometimes they can continue using the telephone. I would have thought that with a budget of over £4 billion extorted from the British people, they could at least manage to establish a line to their interviewees.

      This morning they covered President Trump’s epic speech last night. They even had a Republican on to comment on it! Naturally, he was a Republican who hated Trump and planned to vote for Biden. Still, you can’t have everything can you?

      Also on this morning’s Today Programme, very early on, I heard John Sopel complain that the Democratic Party was being far too ‘nice’ – for example in their Presidential nomination convention last week – and suggested to a Democrat supporter/fundraiser/party activist that perhaps his party should ‘get dirty’ in the run-up to the election.

      Just how biased is the BBC and its TDS (sorry – Trump Derangement Syndrome) sycophants like Sopel ? There’s your answer !

      As if the past few years haven’t seen enough of the Democratic National Party getting ‘dirty’ (the ‘Russia’, the ‘Ukraine’, and the ‘Kavanaugh’ conspiracies, just for example……). But no, the BBC ‘beauties’ think the party should get really dirty now !

      Funnily, that exhortation seemed to disappear from further bulletin items on the programme. Can’t be too careful, eh, BBC ?

        richard, I noted that Sopel even used maths as a sneer at ‘Donald’ Trump (he omitted President a couple of times as Beeboids often do) and said he had only been in office for 3½ years. That was a rather generous rounding down of 3 years 10 months as President Elect and President, Sopel.

        I hope President Trump wins big in November.

        I want that victory to be sticking in Sopel’s throat for ‘four more years’.

        Dobyns, these vehicles are cutely being clubbed together with (and claimed to be) ‘riot kitchens’ by the ‘protestors’. Initially, these were used to provide food and drinks to the so-called ‘protestors’, but have been found recently to be packed with concealed armaments, petrol bombs, etc. They troll around, vaguely following the ‘protestors’ who, of course, are not armed until the rioting starts, then, magically, these vehicles turn up and weapons/explosive devices start appearing everywhere.

        Sweet, no ?…. but they’re mainly peaceful, so they must be OK.

      When did the BBC become not just left wing but also a pressure group and ‘equality’ driven quasi charity ?

      They look out for literally any circumstance where the ‘poor and disadvantaged’ are seen to be losing out.

      Right now at 6.20 pm it is how Coronavirus is hurting ‘deprived areas’ the most. They play this as if it were all a deliberate policy, arranged by the evil Tories. They are fully paid up members of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and any number of Leftoid charities and Pressure groups.

      I have news for you, BBC. Capitalism has taken way more people out of poverty than socialism ever has, or ever will. And inequality drives progress. Why bother to improve yourself or seek a promotion or better job because it offers the exact same money ? Why be a BBC newsreader rather than a BBC office cleaner.

      The BBC has moved from the concept of equality of opportunity to economic equality irrespective of relevant skills, knowledge, or experience. Except for themselves of course.

      They are true Marxists.

      With beeb you get 2 for the price of 1! Yes, indeed. Watch 6pm TV news: 2 BLM hype- uppers and Trump critics for the price of 1!
      First you get Sopel. He is aggrieved because the President is ‘norm defying’. And who/what gets a special, rather lengthy mention? Why, Jacob Blake, of course, and all the circumstances surrounding his shooting, but strictly from a BLM point of view. Mentioning that is now as compulsory as the news logo.
      Then you get Barbara Plett-Usher. She feels that the boom of a BLM message over a microphone, competing with her own voice, makes it all SO much more exhilerating. She doesn’t seem to care much for the President either.

      Neither of the two make any attempt at analysis beyond year 11 level, at best. In fact, neither goes much beyond ‘look at all those fireworks’ level.

      If this is the sort of coverage we can expect from beeb’s (no doubt well-paid) Washington correspondents, the future for public broadcast journalism on the part of our national ‘service’ looks black.

        Theisland – replying to Col Richard Kemp’s question, if I may.

        The BBC knows it has no real influence on the US election, other than as a reference point for the US MSM to point to and claim that the rest of the world views Donald Trump in precisely the same way as they do.

        The more insidious reason the BBC acts this way is to try to simply brainwash (with little or no real fact to back up their propaganda) UK voters with the view that anything but a left-wing government, anywhere, is just awful….. then it can be used to tar, with a very broad brush, anything but a Labour government in the UK, if it does not condemn Mr Trump, or any other non-left-wing leader, in a simple knee-jerk way.

        The BBC left-wing vote-swinging battalions have been at this since a certain UK lady Prime MInister exposed the left for the enemies that they are to UK prosperity. It is just louder, and more brazen these days.

      Stew- Thanks for putting up the ‘Hearts of Oak’ debate last night. I found it very interesting.
      Although I understand entirely where Robin comes from, I tended to be more in agreement with David Vance, from a ‘Unity is Strength’ point of view. I think there was actually far more agreement between the two than would have appeared.
      They briefly touched on the devil in the detail: Tony Blair was mentioned. His determination to bring about devolution may well lead to the break-up of the UK. Accident or design? If his secret (illegal?) immigration caper is anything to go by, he is not averse to deliberately damaging the UK.
      Because our political establishment is so weak, and England does not assert itself (Robin’s regret), Blair has set the scene for someone like Sturgeon to emerge. She forgets that we have a unitary state, not a Federal one, and that she is strictly subservient to Westminster. Our MSM play her game and hype her up to the rafters.
      Is that a little smirk I see, playing around Tony’s lips?

      Is there any escape? Switch on the BBC at any time of day or night and it is a black person talking about being ‘Black’. The BBC has completely lost the plot.

      Switched on R4 just now…’My Black experience’…switch off….switch on earlier and it’s Mark Mardell asking Benjamin Zephaniah to give us his version of ‘I have a dream’…only of course it’s an extremely racist, anti-British, anti-White dirge laced with lies and prejudice.

      Why does the BBC only seek out Black voices who hate Britain and white people? There are so many rational and sensible ‘Black’ voices out there that the BBC could pick but don’t. Only the extremists. Maybe they do put them on air…I’ve not heard one…so a very, very rare breed.

        I mentioned Blair earlier on in connection with illegal immigration and dastardly devolution. Now he pops up again. And when Blair pops up in any connection, a red light starts flashing somewhere in the old grey matter.
        Coincidence? At the very least we can deduce, my dear Captain Hastings/ Dr. Watson that:
        a. Rycroft has sat in with Tony B. while the latter was up to his usual tricks, possibly re the ‘dodgy dossier’ (leading up to finding non-existent WMD, and the death of Dr Kelly), and will have learnt lessons;
        b. If Blair was any sort of a model, one can imagine what sort of advice Priti is getting;
        c. A cynic might thus also find it unsurprising that ‘law firms’ can simply reverse instructions given by HM government, allowing deported ‘migrants’ back in to the UK;
        d. Darn, that little red light simply won’t go off again!

        I agree with Robert Kimbell. It’s not rocket science. But then, my points a-c illustrate what might be happening. You can have all the rockets you want, if you CHOOSE not to use them…

        “The department’s top civil servant, permanent secretary Matthew Rycroft, upheld complaints against the video tweeted out on Wednesday.
        … A day after the video was released, Mr Rycroft responded to a complaint by Jonathan Portes – a former top civil servant.”

        It is not JUST to use legal tricks to keep immigrants in this country when they have no ethical right to be here

          Out of office former leftish bigwigs, now just wannabees:
          I wonder about Blair just as I wonder about Obama: long gone, but what sort of networks have they left behind to continue operations against “populists”?
          Are they still in touch with said networks, occasionally? Strictly informally, of course. The temptation must be strong?

          BTW there is an illegal BLM demo in London on Satuday
          ..so the law will be applied then ?

          Don’t be daft the organiser threatened to sue the police .. so they have agreed not to implement the law.

      This lovely chap was involved in a minor car accident on Monday. He then proceeded to shoot and kill 3 white people.

      The racist US police only went and arrested him !!!!! DISGUSTING.

      BBC / BLM crowd funding incoming for legal costs to help put right this clear injustice.

      Most likely his budding engineering / sports career in tatters. Little cherub.

      On another topic,

      Mrs voter was watching first night of the proms just a few minutes ago, and up pops the female presenter Katy Dereham to introduce the programme. Sitting alongside her (suitably distanced) was some black singer I have never heard of and a gay person who I did recognise as Stephen Fry. Who would have thought that they were the only two people they could find?

      The 10:00 news is on in the background. Does anyone think it possible the BBC approves of the march on Washington? I don’t see much social distancing, but we all know by now that it doesn’t infect virtue signallers.

      Whilst disapproving of Trump not speaking about Democrat talking points. Oh, and Mr Sopel suddenly notices a lack of social distancing.

      Seems to me that in much of what passes for political discourse from the Left anymore many have modified the famous phrase that Evelyn Hall used to summarise Voltaire’s attitude towards freedom of speech.

      The recast aphorism now reads: “I disapprove of what you say, and will pursue to your death my right to utilize every way of preventing you from expressing it.”

      The BBC’s massively deceptive dishonesty continues as it tries to whip up a race war.

      It tells us….

      ‘Officers tried to arrest Mr Blake, initially using a taser against him. After Mr Blake opened his car door, officer Rusten Sheskey – who has been in the Kenosha Police Department for seven years – fired seven shots into Mr Blake’s back.

      The person who shot the video, Raysean White, told CNN that before he began filming, he saw police wrestle, punch and taser Mr Blake. ‘

      So the police just jumped on Blake and attacked him? He wasn’t resisting arrest, was tasered for no reason at all and didn’t walk away from police as they called for him to stop and then opening his car door in order to pick up a weapon?

      It was random police brutality because he was black?

      Why does the BBC tell us this?…

      ‘The two officers closest to Mr Blake at this point on the video are white males.’

      Oh…I get it…it’s a racist cop shooting.

      No in depth reporting of his previous for using agun, charges for strangualtion, bail jumping, violence, domestic and sexual abuse. Odd that….all we hear is he had a warrant out for his arrest.

      ‘Police in Kenosha had said that Mr Blake was in custody for previous warrants and the handcuffs were policy.’

      No idea what for?

      Then we have the case of Kyle Rittenhouse who shot some people….the BBC seems extremely reluctant to give us a full version of events….

      ‘Videos on social media appeared to show a man with a rifle being chased by a crowd before he fell to the ground and appeared to fire at them.’

      ‘Fell to the ground’? No…knocked to the ground and then savagely assaulted….one of the attackers is reported to have a handgun…which is why he was shot.

      How did it start? Rittenhouse was being chased by the ‘protestors’ who threw something at him…and someone fired a gun nearby, the first man who was shot by Rittenhouse had lunged at him and tried to take his gun…and got shot.

      Rittenhouse was then chased again and knocked to the ground and attacked….so he shot his attackers.

      Where is the BBC reporting on all this? It’s all available….whilst the BBC are trying to portray Jacob Blake as a latter-day saint it looks like they are lining Rittenhouse up for the ‘White Supremacist’ treatment which he was far from being.

      I hadn’t realised Daisy Ridley was black……

      ‘Playing the lead in a Star Wars trilogy would be the dream for many an actor but Daisy Ridley has revealed it left her facing the dark side.

      Idolised by millions of fans for her turn in the latest trilogy, the English actress said she struggled to find work after returning from a galaxy far, far away.

      Miss Ridley, 28, played scavenger-turned-Jedi Rey in the latest series of films, starring alongside John Boyega, Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher.

      Despite the box office success, however, she was rejected after countless auditions in the wake of the final instalment.’

      Astounding how the film industry is so prejudiced against Blacks that they just can’t get jobs due to racism.

      A hundred million more on diversity. So it will get worse. But the BBC is already unwatchable. So how can it get worse. The only heterosexual white males left at the BBC are posh left-wing morons with degrees in Marxist Philosophy, Politics and Economics and the engineering staff. So only technical breakdowns can get worse. So if the BBC create the utopia of an infinitely diverse BBC. Then as in Africa, technical breakdowns creating transmission blackouts could improve things.

      I was put off diversity as a child. Hull Fair in the 1960’s had freak shows were people like my sisters, interested in diversity, would pay to enter. I preferred going on the rides and dodgems, to looking at dwarves, bearded ladies or the blacks with Tarzan in the jungle.

      Now the BBC has replaced technology and science on BBC Four, with an African freak show with blacks talking about blacks, but without any explanation of how the Egyptians, Berbers, Arabs, Europeans and now the Chinese brought civilisation to Sub-Saharan Africa. But only the European Christians found slavery immoral, and abolished it.

      Now we have White Liberals on the BBC trying to outdo Victorian Abolitionists as regards Black slavery in the West Indies. But unconcerned about Slavery in the Islamic world today. Victorian Christians used the Royal Navy to cause slavery in the Islamic World to go into decline. Today Western Liberals look the other way as slavery in the Islamic World expands to the point were today it is larger than the European Atlantic slave trade. And those loony liberals in Bristol are still fighting against slavery in the West Indies.

        Well put and love the sentance, ‘Now we have White Liberals on the BBC trying to outdo Victorian Abolitionists’…… Now just consider Zimbabwe who having got rid of one monster have once again fallen into the fire of a hellish dictatorship-they really are completely uncivilised for Government in any direction. Why the hell did we white Europeans ever consider giving them independence? As seen they ruin everything they come into contact with unless of course they have been born and educated under a white regeme. No wonder the Arabs found the black man so easy to enslave, they will follow without thought as long as their fantasies are enriched.

      Racism on the BBC made me think about “Black Bodies”, “Black Holes” and “Black Dwarfs”.

      The “Black Body” Temperature is at the core of the “Hoax”. It only exists in reality in a “Black Hole“. And that is only because in a “Black Hole” the “Black Body” Temperature is the same as the “Grey Body” Temperature.

      The “Grey Body” Temperature is real, because it is the same temperature as the average surface temperature on a Planet without an Atmosphere.

      A “White Body” is more attractive than a “Black Body”.

      “Black Dwarfs” are typically very dense, but “White Dwarfs” are nice and hot.

      And a “White Hole” is a hypothetical region of spacetime and singularity which cannot be entered from the outside.

      HRH the Lord Hall is off to become the chairman of the National Gallery – where his first order will be to sell all the pictures with whitees in them ….

      … anyway mr hall is granting fairwell interviews with the MSM . He says the BBC needs to be more ‘ diverse in thought ‘ .

      How i hate that word – diverse .

      And mr hall says the BBC needs to be 70 – 30 out of London not the current 30%

      I think his idea of ‘ outside london ‘ means some third world crap hole in Vibrant Africa.

      Whatever the accent of the BBC droid it will be the same biased far left crap . I wont be wishing Mr Hall a long retirement ….

      Adding to the evidence of the failure of the chairman of the biased BBC – he said to the telegraph

      ‘ “Our job is not to take sides. We should not pander to any particular group; we should be giving everybody, whoever they are, something. We should try to be the calm centre in what is a very stormy situation that we find ourselves in.”

      And then compounded his wretchedness by saying that both he and the incoming chairman had approved personally changes to the Last Night of the Proms ……

      So this proves it was not a minor change bought about by ‘covid ‘ as tried out early in the week but a concerted attack on the British .

        The headteachers of the schools where I am a governor, in areas of high deprivation, tell me the extra money procured by the footballer on behalf of the poor, made getting children back into school harder. I might add that children on free school meals were still getting them throughout lockdown. Senior school staff were delivering them to the children’s homes, allowing staff to check on children’s welfare. The £15 extra per child paid for extra cigarettes etc.

        Note to Mrs Brown: the ‘we’ doesn’t include you, dear, you’re not English and only british because some fool in our government gave you a piece of paper.

        It’s people like her, and the other millions of them in our country, who have debased the word British.

        I can’t be the only one who is sick to death of seeing and hearing paks and blacks. Everywhere. For no other reason than they’re not white.

        My mantra, for over 15 years, now, is and will continue to be:
        No immigrants
        No refugees
        No asylum seekers
        And deport the million plus illegals from our country.

        I want to live in a monoculture, not a multiculture.
