Midweek Thread 18 November 2020

You may remember that at the beginning of 2020 the government held a ‘consultation ‘ over decriminalisation of not having a TV Licence . The result was due to be published in the Summer . Well it has now said it will not announce the result of that consultation until a new BBC Chairman is annointed – which means – the Summer of 2021. Meanwhile Capita TV Licencing Inspectors /debt collectors are still visiting homes – despite the Chinese Virus . Defund the BBC .

    Sydney Powell takes the challenge to a whole new level:

    “In terms of the level of corruption we are looking at here, we have no idea how many Republican or Democratic candidates in any state across the country paid to have the system rigged to work for them. These people didn’t do this just to take control. They make one heck of a lot of money off of it. Think about the global interests behind your own news organisations. Think about the pressure being brought to bear on the social media companies to shut down free speech on any challenge to the election. This is a massive well-funded co-ordinated effort to deprieve we the people of the United States of our most fundemental right under the constitution to preserve this republic that we all cherish. It is of the greatest concern, it is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.”

      Writing as an armchair virologist I would think the risks with an covid vaccine will be ‘unknown ‘ if only because of the lack of research time .

      I guess lots of pharmaceuticals and the like go through a long assessment process which in part adds to the cost – and a lot don’t get through .

    BBC bias: An open letter to the new director-general

    Dear Mr Davie

    On September 3, in your first address to staff after taking over as director general, you stated that impartiality – as required by the BBC Charter – would be your main priority.

    You have announced measures which require staff not to post biased remarks or opinions on social media.

    That sounds good, and was handled by the gargantuan 350-strong BBC PR machine to achieve maximum impact but, with respect, BBC bias is not confined to ill-advised tweets – crass as they may be – from John Simpson and Gary Lineker.

    Everything from comedy to drama and from the educational content of BBC Bitesize and BBC Ideas is also infected with woke, partisan zeal.

    One indication of the scale of the rot is the latest News-watch report.

    Which, as Robin Aitken outlined, shows that despite everything that has happened since the 2016 referendum and the imminent departure from the EU ratified by the 2019 general election, the corporation is still pursuing Project Fear about life outside the EU, and is still swamping EU coverage with the views of those who oppose Brexit or are pro-EU .

    On top of that, not one programme has ever been broadcast by the BBC which explores possible benefits of departure. In sharp contrast, hundreds of hours of programmes have been devoted to climate alarmism and the supposed benefits of electric cars, so called ‘green’ energy and a carbon-free future.

    But the reality is that a full audit of the extent of BBC failures of impartiality would take a team of dozens of scribes and analysts working round the clock for years to achieve.

    Mr Davie, you are thus faced with a Herculean task in rooting out bias. But as yet, you have given no indication to the outside world – other than instituting the Tweet purge – about how you intend to achieve this.

    Many viewers, of course, do not believe that reform is possible, which is why recent surveys show that the majority no longer want to pay the BBC licence fee and don’t trust BBC news.

    But the current Charter is in place until 2027, and as the agenda for our forthcoming meeting, may I suggest the following urgent action points as a basis for our discussions and instant attention?

    Find top-level advisers who are genuinely independent and will give you a perspective other than the stifling wokery which has infected the Corporation at every level. Put some of them on the internal management board so their views are heeded.

    Ditch opinion polls as a way of determining whether BBC output is impartial and get properly in touch with real people out there north of Watford and west of Oxford who will tell you what needs changing.

    Institute instead rigorous monitoring of BBC output compiled by independent advisers who are not in the BBC or woke bubble. This will make the constant struggle to be unbiased a properly transparent process.

    Scrap the current internal complaints system and put the 350 BBC publicists (combined pay £15million-a-year plus?) to work instead in scrutinising output to get rid of liberal bias and in ensuring complaints are properly investigated rather than being seen as an intrusion.

    Abandon your defence of the BBC licence fee and the outmoded notion of universal provision and start planning now for major change to reflect changes in the media environment. It’s only when the Corporation has to fight in the marketplace for audiences that it will become fully responsive to audience needs and preferences, and it will be all the better for it.

    Make genuine ‘diversity’ an important internal and output goal without the BBC being an overt arm of the woke ‘racism’ agenda and a fanatical tick-box exercise.

    Scrap in its present form the lavish BBC Academy and relaunch it as the bastion of rigorous professional integrity and training to ensure that audiences across the whole of the UK are properly served.

    Inject new life into the programme-making process by ditching tired formats such as Question Time and Newsnight – both around 40 years old – and replace them with new offerings which genuinely incorporate diversity of views.

    Tell those who write for the BBC that they are not on a mission to convert the audience into woke-infected zombies but rather to stimulate them with challenging, fresh material containing a variety of perspectives and views.

    At every level, celebrate British history and culture rather than preaching the message that we are a nation who should be ashamed of our past, and are tarred with blood-guilt. End once and for all the Biased Broadcasting Corporation and make the first ‘B’ stand for British in the full sense of the word.

    Remind you of anything?

    BLM ? National Trust ? etc etc

    “Starting in 1538 most religious art was destroyed including some stained glass (which was unusual even in Protestant countries in Europe). The destruction was comprehensive and methodical and included banners, sculptures, processional crosses, copes, vestments, statues of the Virgin Mary, patronal statues inside the entrance, wood carving, liturgical books, church plate, chalices, tapestries and so on. Some rood screens were not destroyed but all the crosses on them were burned in the late 16th century.

    Books were also burned on a vast scale. Out of six hundred books in the library of Worcester Priory only six remain. Three survived the destruction of the Augustinian Friars of York out of a total of six hundred and forty six volumes.

    Music in churches was also disapproved of and music manuscripts were destroyed on a vast scale. Organs were also destroyed.

    It has been described as a ‘cultural revolution designed to obliterate England’s memory of who and what she had been’. The Reformation is sometimes described as opening closed minds but it might better be described as removing our memory by obliterating our record of the past in order to destroy or fundamentally change our national identity”

        Darcy & G, yes – in a way – you are right as the meaning of Thaliban is, iirc, scholar. Martin Luther was a scholar priest. Most of the other heroes who drove the Reformation were learned in Latin and probably also Greek, could read the Scriptures, studied them and realised the truth about the Apostate Church and what it had been teaching.

        The middle Europeans among them had a strong desire to read the Scriptures in their native tongue. The Roman Church had forbidden that.

        Not sure I would have approved of the destruction of books and art and buildings though. A similar thing happened in Romania from 25 or 26 December 1989 and on into 1990. When the Ceausescus were executed, Romanians had developed such an antipathy to the Communist dictatorship that they went on a rampage of destruction.

        Obviously, the Securitate (State secret police) had weapons and feared for their own safety with the Dictator to protect them gone, so they fought the liberators. That incensed the people even more and they even destroyed fabric and structures that would have been useful to them in the years ahead once Communism had been expunged from the nation.

        There was, of course, opposition to the Reformation in the UK – it survives until our day – but in way, what went on in Worcester and elsewhere was very Jewish, very Passover and as taught by Christ. “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees …. ” In an Orthodox Jewish home for Passover, all trace of yeast and leavened bread must be removed.

        However, think what the UK might have been like had the Reformation never happened.

    It’s a tale of the handbags and the gladrags in the press this morning. With some digressions.
    Handbags (football shorthand for handbags at dawn; itself meaning some catty girlish confrontation) and this of course refers to the long-anticipated kick-off of the Rebekah Vardy v Coleen Rooney court drama. The Mirror, like several other national newspapers (including the Telegraph which one might have thought would hold itself to higher standards) are calling this one the: ‘Wagatha Christie trial’. WAG being the acronym used to refer to wives and girlfriends of high-profile sportspersons. [I see what you did there, Wikipedia. The term sportsmen might have offended lesbian sportspeople. You have to be so careful these days, even when you’re explaining tabloid slang]. By the way, if you’re interested in that sort of thing the Guardian has: ‘Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis. Our gay Christmas movie’
    “A young woman with a plan to propose to her girlfriend while at her family’s annual holiday party discovers her partner hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents” – there’s one for our multi-household combined bubbles family get-together over the festive season (annual holiday party? – now I’ve heard it all!) I can just see our senior Royal couple, Liz and Phil, as pictured in the Mail: ‘Philip’s joy at great grandkids’ home-made tribute to 73 years of marriage’ with (most of) their four generations all gathered around them at Balmoral tuning in for that slice of sapphic romance.
    Oddly WAG can be used in the singular. By the way, am I explaining this stuff to you as though you’ve just come off a rubber dinghy? Well, that just goes to show how peculiar and nuanced a national culture can be and spare a though for how tricky it can be for newcomers to understand, let alone to fit in.
    This is serious stuff. Alongside a pic of our Becks in fetching hooded parker, the freebie Metro tells us: ‘The sleuth hurts. Becky Vardy yesterday as a court heard how claims by Coleen Rooney (inset) caused her anxiety and distress’ Our Collen is pictured in sporty white hooded sweat top.
    The Guardian, naturally, pours some cold water on our enjoyment of the courtroom drama: ‘Cuts and Covid delay court cases until 2023’
    Short snippet of personal hearsay or anecdata (in brief) – it has been brought to my attention that some left-leaning lawyers have been deliberately uncooperative with efforts to keep court cases moving during this present interregnum. Unwilling to adapt and show some flexibility they prefer a form of legal work to rule, their objective being to use lockdown disruptions to instead highlight Tory Cuts. As John Lennon might have put it – “You say you want a revolution… you ask me for a contribution. Well, you know we’re all doing what we can”
    Speaking of catfights how could I neglect to link the Coleen and Rebekah bout with the catch-weight confrontation between Priti Patel and the chinless wonders at the ministry of open prisons and borders. ‘Patel guilty of bullying staff leaked report finds’ (Times). I think, in honour of Dorothy L. Sayers, I’ll call this one the “Lord Peter Leaky” scandal.

    Gladrags? Well… our newspapers – particularly the more downmarket titles – are commonly referred to as “rags”. There I go again teaching my grandmother to suck eggs. We’ll leave Hollywood’s finest Kristen and Mackenzie to teach our grans those new tricks this Christmas – sorry, annual holiday party.
    And boy, are our rags glad there’s a vaccine for the Chinese Flu: ‘New jab joy’ (The Star); ‘Hope for vaccine in UK within fortnight’ (‘i’); ‘Huge Covid boost. 1m jabs a day. Biggest push in NHS history’ – says The Sun, an extraordinarily unexpected, though welcome, addition to the BBC’s on-line national newspaper frontpage line up. Wonder how long that will last?

    BBC running lots of HYSs but strangely not one for their pet project of the day.
    Outrage of a possible pay freeze for public sector workers.
    Who even the BBC had to admit already earn 7% more than their private sector counterparts. That doesn’t include the extra 20% salary equivalent difference in pension entitlement. Or the value of rock solid job security.

    Check out the personal debt statistics. Many are paying them down at record rates with massive nett monthly repayment figures. That’s because if you have some income, there is nothing to spend discretionary spending on.

    And while genuine front line NHS workers may deserve something it should be a bonus not a forever pay rise. And front line only.
    Think of all the cancelled appointments and surgical procedures. Were all the staff transferred to the front line? I don’t think so. Many were at home twiddling their thumbs through lack of work. On full pay, needless to say.
    As for giving a pay rises to the NHS consultant’s secretary who didn’t answer Mrs S’s phone calls for 3 months….she deserves absolutely f*** all.

    For millions in the evil private sector, facing short time work, redundancy, furlough, ruined businesses………the situation is very different. But none of them are ‘heroes’ so they don’t matter in BBCland.

      So no rises for Public Sector until we have a strong private sector – the ones who make the bloody money and don’t just get to spend it…
      the incentive should all be on building business infrastructure not just public sector wages…

    former BBC journalist Robin Aitken (author of “Can We Trust The BBC?” and “Noble Liar: Why & How The BBC Distorts The News To Promote A Liberal Agenda”) returns to the New Culture Forum to argue that #BBCBias now colours all of its news output, firmly placing the once impartial institution firmly on the political spectrum. Explaining how we arrived at this situation, Robin argues it is time to cut the BBC down to size and tackle its institutional bias, withdrawing the licence fee if need be.
    Proclaims its impartiality .. but it’s a twisted view
    This false concept of impartiality has become obligatory on the other broadcasters.

    Maybe the BBC didn’t see it?

    A good 10 minute explanation of how the BBC got to where it is now and what it favours and disfavours brexit – multiculturalism – gaystuff – green – feminism – socialism – secularism – trump …
    The’ subculture ‘idea of a western world controlled by BBC /CNN types is an accurate one .

    And of course ends with the issue of you paying for bias .

    Priti Patel story
    Apparently there is a victim of Pritis bullying
    but Priti is a victim too, cos instead of the matter being dealt by a simple complaint and it being fixed by someone telling her, someone weaponised it to the head of the Civil service and Priti never got hear what she’d supposedly done wrong.

      So many “strange” events and every single one in Bidens favour. Trump won this election without a shadow of a doubt.

      Calling states for Biden, when he is way behind … i mean WTF !!!!

    Did the Democrits know what they were going to face after the election, with the newest recruit taking her place there?

    Just a legal point on the electoral fraud. At this stage you just need a prima facie case. You just need to show the court ‘on first look’ there could be fraud. The court then allows you access to the documents, computers etc to gather more specific evidence. That’s what Giuliani probably meant.

    A day after Trump’s A-team of lawyers held a press conference making bombshell allegations about electoral fraud, the BBC website continues to ignore it entirely.

    One would have thought they’d cover the story if only to debunk it or mock Giuliani’s hair dye malfunction, like much of the msm have done.

    So, BBC, here are the main bullet points as summarised by Breitbart. (Each is followed by a brief para of explanation.)

    1. Observers were allegedly prevented from watching mail-in ballots being opened.
    2. Allegedly unequal application of the law in Democratic counties.
    3. Voters allegedly arrived at the polls to discover other people had voted for them.
    4. Election officials were allegedly told not to look for defects in ballots, and to backdate ballots.
    5. Ballots casting votes for Joe Biden and no other candidates were allegedly run several times through machines.
    6. Absentee ballots were accepted in Wisconsin without being applied for first.
    7. There were allegedly “overvotes,” with some precincts allegedly recording more voters than residents, among other problems.
    8. Voting machines and software are allegedly owned by companies with ties to the Venezuelan regime and to left-wing donor George Soros.
    9. The Constitution provides a process for electing a president if the vote is corrupted.

      vlad, this morning on TOADY the BBC were keen to point out that the Georgia recount had finished, it was done by hand you know, and Joe Biden – not Kamala Harris – had been declared the winner.

      Would that recount have been done in a Paul Daniel’s approved manner?

      Is it supposed to be magic ?
      The balls are different weights
      The sorting is only in the cubes at the end after 16 seconds
      a light ball rolls down the 45 degree cube edge but then has no momentum so falls down and to the left.
      – A heavy ball, has momentum so carries on to the next cube
      As a kind of double check the same thing happens at the next cube to catch ones that were missed the first time.
      .. A light ball drops left , a heavy ball carries on to the right.

    .. It was a Daily Star story a week ago on November 13th !

    I guess it went from Daily Star, to the Guardian & that’s why the BBC think it is new.

    This morning they topped the news with
    “Pokemon auction record : A 1st Edition Booster Box: sold for $360K”
    .. So what’s that got to do with local news ?

    Could the Cummings going not be a sacking but a resignation?

    Yesterday evening, we learned that the Brexit Trade talks had been disrupted by a member of the EU team testing positive for Covid. I wonder if Dominic Cummings had seen that coming down the line a long time ago and had initially encouraged the PM to set and stick to the 30th June deadline. When that was let slip to 31 July, I can imagine the PM blustering away with his usual, but on this occasion, misplaced optimism.

    “Oh, Dominic. Don’t be a doom monger. It will be alright to keep these talks going. I… I… I ..w ..we’ll get a deal done in plenty of time, you just see.” Could it be that when the Lee Cain thing came up, Dominic was fizzing a bit and reminded the PM of his slipshod time keeping on the EU Trade talks only to be met with same hopeless optimism from the PM. At which point, DC decided to relocate out of the centre of power.

    Just speculation on my part. Pure guesswork. Bit like the BBC.

    and then another 15 minutes of defending himself cos not one listener took his side
    He ended “What is with you guys ? you defend Trump like he’s your Mum
    Grow up ! Biden will be in the White House ! “

      Stew – I dont always agree with Hartley Brewer , but at least she is unafraid to confront BS when it is shoved in her face. I also quite like Mike graham and Dan Wooten who say what so many of us think but Collins is definitely Mr Vanilla Mainstream. I often turn the radio off when Collins comes on – He could probably easily get a job at the BBC – maybe that is his true aim.

      However much I dislike Collins at least some credit must go to Talk radio for providing some diversity of opinion in an industry where these days the only way is woke.

        “Hampden was the biggest stadium in the world when it was opened, with a capacity in excess of 100,000. This was increased further between 1927 and 1937, reaching a peak of 150,000. The record attendance of 149,415, for a Scotland v England match in 1937, is the European record for an international football match. Tighter safety regulations meant that the capacity was reduced to 81,000 in 1977”

        Now 51,866

    The BBC has nothing to say on this stunning allegation by Sydney Powell (posted earlier but surely important?) that candidates of all parties have been buying the count.

    “In terms of the level of corruption we are looking at here, we have no idea how many Republican or Democratic candidates in any state across the country paid to have the system rigged to work for them. These people didn’t do this just to take control. They make one heck of a lot of money off of it. Think about the global interests behind your own news organisations. Think about the pressure being brought to bear on the social media companies to shut down free speech on any challenge to the election. This is a massive well-funded co-ordinated effort to deprieve we the people of the United States of our most fundemental right under the constitution to preserve this republic that we all cherish. It is of the greatest concern, it is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.”

    Incidentally under ‘Claim 1’ the BBC does say:

    “But this has largely been put down to clerical errors or software glitches being discovered, which have then been corrected.”

    What kind of Mickey Mouse organisation is using software which clearly isn’t fit for purpose and which is being ‘corrected’ on the fly?

    TWatO with Jonny ‘Staccato’ Dymond was keen to tell me this lunchtime that (doom laden, serious voice) “another Civil Servant has resigned.” Should I be guessing that he resigned because an investigation into the leaking of the Patel Bullying report might lead to a prosecution and sacking?

    Possibly.

    I’d put the likelihood no higher than that. Now that Cummings has gone, expect a lot more leaks in future ….
