Did you read that the head of Britain’s special forces has been trying to stop the publication of a book by a senior BBC journalist which describes in “tactical detail” operations carried out by the SAS in Iraq from 2003 to 2009? The major-general, who cannot be identified for security reasons, is concerned about the impact of Task Force Black on the elite regiment’s operational effectiveness because of the contents, which are … Continue reading
I wonder what it might be about gay corporatist Lord Browne that encourages the BBC to give him ANOTHER spot on the Today programme, second day running? Click through to read and contribute comments on this post.
The BBC allows all shades of opinion, from A to B! With our first past the post system no longer looking so good for Labour, time for the Today programme to have a debate on alternatives. So, around 7.51am this morning bring on Hillary Benn and Chris Huhne to cover the topic – what could be more balanced than that? All shades of political opinion…! Click through to read and … Continue reading
The newspapers are well-and truly laying into jailed Met Commander Ali Dizaei this morning; it seems that the world and his wife knew about his corruption and his bullying, but the Met sought to cover it up as best they could because they feared his chants of racism – and shared his ‘equality’ agenda. So of course did the BBC. They disgracefully made his pack-of-porkies autobiography Not One of Us … Continue reading
This morning, I was intrigued by a new posting on the BBC website which said that “endemic” seals are leaving the Galapagos islands for a new island 1,500 kms away where temperatures are said to have risen as a result of climate change by a whopping 6 degrees Centigrade in 10 years. Such a rise could, of course, could be the result of localised warming due to volcanic activity, but … Continue reading
C.I.N.O. Tim Yeo was given an interruption free outing on Today this morning 7.12am as he was allowed to waffle on about the EU Carbon emission trading scam. Yeo reckons the price of carbon is just too low to make this scheme work effectively and he was given free rein to pontificate on this scam. No tough questions for Yeo! It would have been nice had the BBC chosen to … Continue reading
Anyone catch Naughtie’s swooning interview with former BP boss John Browne this morning? Browne is that rare beast – a corporatist that the BBC loves. Why do they love him? Because he came out and admitted he was gay. This simpering 6 minute interview was all about Browne’s gayness and how tough it was for him in that macho Oil world. But cheer up, Browne has a new “partner” and … Continue reading
This is a guest post by Hippiepooter. One cannot be without sympathy for the upset Alastair Campbell suffered in his interview with Andrew Marr today, both on a human level and as a staunch supporter of the Iraq war myself, but as a committed democrat one does feel the need to state that he and Tony Blair dragged British politics through the mud in coopting the already biased BBC as … Continue reading
Have you read Mark Mardell’s latest love message to Obama – and just before Valentine’s! Mardell opines on The One’s most recent teleprompter recital which contains “solid economic measures” and in words which were “striking”. Mardell goes on to allege that Obama was “daring the GOP to vote against potentially popular measures such as curbing lobbyists, promoting new jobs and toughening banking rules.” Pity that under Obama lobbyists are even … Continue reading
Just to make it absolutely clear: the Sunday Express page one story here about BBC pensions and climate change follows on from what B-BBC exclusively revealed on Monday. What’s fascinating about how fast the warnming bubble is now bursting (in some quarters – not the BBC!) is that the MSM are now falling over themselves to follow up blogs like this – three months ago they didn’t give a hoot. … Continue reading
Better late than never, a new Open Thread comes along! So, what is bugging you about the BBC today? Click through to read and contribute comments on this post.
My, who would have guessed that striking parallels between the BBC’s coverage of the global warming debate and the activities of its pension fund are revealed today. The corporation is under investigation after being inundated with complaints that its editorial coverage of climate change is biased in favour of those who say it is a man-made phenomenon. The £8billion pension fund is likely to come under close scrutiny over its … Continue reading
Did you see that the BBC’s head of religion has accused the Church of England of “living in the past” and said that the corporation should not give Christianity preferential treatment? Well, he IS a Muslim and he is acting to form in that regards. What a scandal that Christianity is so abused by the BBC head of religion and what an even bigger disgrace that we are asked to … Continue reading
EU referendum’s Richard North leads the way yet again today in exposing that the IPCC 2007 report not only got it drastically wrong about melting Himalayan glaciers and disappearing Amazon rain forest, but also about serious food shortages in Africa. It’s deja vu – all over again! – because the IPCC report depended on inflated claims from a pressure group rather than scientific fact. The BBC, of course, as Richard … Continue reading
The BBC very belatedly and no doubt even more begrudgingly has commissioned a poll probing views about global warming. Despite the years of BBC propaganda to the opposite, a total of 73% are not convinced that climate change has anything to do with humans; only 26% believe it is man-made, a drop from 42% a year ago when the Times newspaper conducted a similar poll. So who does the BBC … Continue reading
