One Blackman the BBC doesn’t like

  Sgt Blackman’s conviction for shooting a mortally wounded Taliban terrorist is reduced from murder to manslaughter…justice is served…the BBC’s reaction, as given to us by Tony Livesey a couple of minutes ago [around 17:30] on 5 Live, is that perhaps we should be giving some justice to the Taliban fighter. Blackman’s lawyer, Jonathan Goldberg, essentially, very politely, well, not really, told Livesey to fuck off and stick his political … Continue reading

NO NEWS ALERT..

All Trump would have to do is express a preference for Vodka for the BBC to accuse him of being in the Russian’s pocket. Meanwhile, other news outlets report this but the BBC doesn’t seem much interested. Does not fit into the narrative you see… Hillary Clinton’s team members met with the Russian ambassador during the election as well as Donald Trump’s, the Kremlin spokesman has alleged, as he set … Continue reading

Andrew Neil’s car crash interview

      ‘Steerpike’ at the Spectator says Louise Mensch has a car crash interview with Andrew Neil.  I would suggest it is Neil who has the car crash as he keeps getting his facts wrong and continually misunderstands what Mensch says about Putin and Breitbart…she says she believes Putin had Breitbart murdered but she does not have any evidence…she is not saying that she has evidence of that, she … Continue reading

The BBC’s Budget Budget Reporting

First…When Dick Nobinson called Hammond ‘Spreadshit Phil’ was he drunk, did he do it for a bet or was it purely a cynical joke to amuse his BBC buddies and those in Labour who wanted Robinson to be their PR guru?  I’m guessing the last one. Now to the main issue, the BBC’s so-called reporting of the Budget.  The BBC’s top economic editor, Nihal, speculated that Hammond was vilifying the … Continue reading
