    On now Channel4 trolling men
    Are Women the Fitter Sex?

    Dr Ronx Ikharia A&E medic — a “queer, black, androgynous intersectional feminist”
    In November she thoughtfully examined why people from black and ethnic minority groups were disproportionately affected by Covid-19.
    Now she turns her attention to why more men die from the virus than women.
    Meeting experts and patients, Ikharia discovers that this medical gender bias is not restricted to today’s pandemic but is true across many viruses and diseases, including Sars, cancer and HIV. Women, it appears, are the stronger sex
    but apart from their inbuilt advantages Ikharia finds that there are still problems with how they are treated within the healthcare system.

    Some unconcious bias going on there
    If you are saying one i strong and one i weak, why in’t her standard consistent ?
    Title here : Are Women the Fitter Sex?
    Was her prog about Covid called
    When it comes Covid Are White people the Fitter race ?
    (Not that I blame her for titles, co they may well have been a white male producer)

    Em if the system is so in favour of males
    then why do males die more often of Covid ?ErdosiIXcAUqv0i?format=jpg&name=small

    The book The War Against The BBC .
    Chapter nine
    The “Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation ”
    Here the authors claim that the Conservatives were so obsessed that even Margaret Thatcher [boo hiss ] reined in Norman Tebbitt [more boo hiss -“if the referendum goes wrong “]

    Mention is made of the Falklands war and the authors say the BBC with the MOD won the propaganda war without giving away military secrets !
    Is that so ?


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      “I counted them out and I counted them back” became famous when a BBC man used it to avoid giving numbers of aircraft in a raid.

      One possible translation: “Try harder next time, Argentina, you scored no major hits this time.”

      I heard complaints from one Vulcan crew member that the British media had told Argentina too much about those bombing raids from Ascension (starting on 30/4/1982).
