"Lib Lab please"

Hello all, good to be back (not that any of you noticed I was gone, you feckers). Do you recall that time of political limbo following the general election when the make-up of the next government was still undecided? We all had opinions… I mention this only because “maxiec” happens to be a producer on Radio 5 Live’s Breakfast show. God forbid should anybody suggest that the BBC isn’t impartial. … Continue reading


BBC Today programme very keen to paint the notion that the past few nights of Republican thuggery on the streets of Northern Ireland are in some way linked to “contentious” Orange Order Parades. This is so outrageous that I thought I might set the record straight. In most instances, the violence is taking part in IRA controlled heartlands and those terrorists firing at police officers are out to KILL them. … Continue reading


The BBC in general, and Richard Black in particular, have been warning us for years, in typical alarmist fashion, that Greenland’s ice is melting and we are all going to drown. This is what Mr Black wrote in 2009: The Greenland ice sheet is losing its mass faster than in previous years and making an increasing contribution to sea level rise, a study has confirmed…The team used weather data, satellite … Continue reading

Breaking News. Sshhh.

Just Journalism accuses the BBC of downplaying Hezbollah’s history of violence. They cite two pointedly non committal BBC articles about Hezbollah, save the brief, hastily written afterthoughts.‘The US and Israel view Hezbollah as a terrorist group.’ and: ‘Hezbollah’s military wing is proscribed in the UK as a terrorist organisation’ In case BBC viewers don’t know, Hezbollah is a genocidal Iran-backed Islamist terrorist organisation hell-bent on finishing off Israel for starters, … Continue reading


It’s amazing the way the story swings. Reading this latest BBC account, it seems nothing but criticism is being hurled at the Police. By contrast, Mote is increasingly being portrayed as the victim – when in fact he was a victim-maker. The Police are put in impossible positions and this is one. BBC keen to given Andy Hayman a platform, I note. Click through to read and contribute comments on … Continue reading


BBC reports that swimming lessons in some Staffordshire schools should stop during Ramadan to ensure Muslim pupils “do not swallow water”, a council has suggested….. Stoke-on-Trent City Council has issued an 11-page Ramadan guide for schools to help pupils who may be fasting when the school year starts in September. It said swimming was acceptable to Muslims but posed a high risk of swallowing water that may break a fast. … Continue reading


I don’t know how much Richard Black is paid by the BBC. They spend almost a billion a year on their newsgathering and news programmes, but don’t reveal individual salaries. I do know, however, that a friend of mine who is a BBC presenter is paid north of £150,000 a year; on that basis Mr Black, as a specialist correspondent, probably gets at least £70K and probably substantially more. He … Continue reading


Shocking loss of life in Uganda as football fans watching the World Cup final last night were blown to smithereens in terrorist attacks. But in THIS BBC report, reporter Will Ross is determined to cast doubt on the overwhelming likelihood that Islamic terrorists were behind it. The modus operandi fits the Al Queda template, as does the inhumanity of it But through the Islamic-friendly prism of the BBC, why it … Continue reading

Paddy Goes Peacemaking

For some unknown reason Paddy O’Connell of Radio 4’s B.H. went to Jerusalem and spoke to Saeb Erekat and Gilliad Sher, the chief negotiators ten years ago, at Bill Clinton’s Camp David summit. Erekat was in negotiating mode: “if I can’t offer the Palestinians the removal of Jewish settlements, Hamas will win” he declared, a tactic which requires Hamas to play bad cop to the PLO’s good cop, adding “I’m … Continue reading
