THE WORLD LOVES A TYRANT..

You have to hand it to the BBC, they never shirk from expressing their admiration for tyrants and their hanger-ons. Listen to this item, on the mistress of Simon Bolivar. Note how Huge Chavez is given an approving name-check and of course Bolivar himself is presented as a lovable rogue. Two  tyrants in five minutes, stamp-marked with the tacit approval of the State Broadcaster. Click through to read and contribute … Continue reading

RISE OF THE NEO-PURITANS

BBC leading the charge this morning about the evils of drinking. On both Radio and TV, it is running with the idea that up to one in three kids are horrified at the drinking they see going on in the home.The BBC itself has commissioned the study which suggests that a third of children said they feel scared when adults drink, a fifth say they have witnessed angry and aggressive … Continue reading

NO REDUNDANCIES IN THE STATE SECTOR?

Clearly the BBC seeks to engineer a confrontation between the State sector and the Coalition. This morning, it is hyping up the lunatic suggestion by Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union, that cutting jobs now would be “economically illiterate”. (Mark does not do irony, evidently) He said: “I believe there’s no argument for any cuts in public services at all at the moment, that it … Continue reading

THE BIG QUESTION FINISHES FOR 2010

Hurray! The execrable “Big Question” presented by ..ahem…much loved national treasure Dame Nicky Campbell finished today for 2010. It won’t be back until January 2011 – a small mercy for which we should give thanks. This is an appalling programme so biased leftwards that I am surprised it does not fall over. Of course it follows the usual BBC schtick and puts on a token “right-winger” on the panel but … Continue reading

BBC "GUIDE" TO TERROR WORSHIP…

Have a read of this tribute by the BBC to Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah – a founding figure for the Hezbollah terror group. Note how he is described as being “a moderate” and indeed “a progressive”. OK, he loathed the USA, wanted to see the destruction of Israel BUT, on the other hand, he believed female masturbation was allowable. You can see why the BBC are in mourning. Click … Continue reading

MASTERMIND…

Interesting choice of BBC language here. Munich 1972..Israelideaths ‘masterminded’ in an “audacious” Palestinian attack…which “killed” 2Israelis….9 others “died” in a botched german police rescueattempt. Not machine gunned and grenaded to death then?BBC weekend staff even more appalling than the usual crew. It’s almost as if they admired the Palestinian savagery on display in 1972, and every year since. Click through to read and contribute comments on this post.

Anything Goes

Sabotaging £180,000 worth of equipment and similar crimes are now quite legal. All you have to do when caught is plead that it was all in a good cause. Oddly enough the two legal precedents that have set this new standard concern two of the BBC’s favourite causes. Warmism and vilifying Israel. Melanie Phillips, Robin Shepherd and Jonathan Hoffman have written about this staggering development which was brought about by … Continue reading

ANY QUESTIONS?

Wonder did anyone else catch “Any Questions” this week? I caught the repeat this lunch-time on Radio 4. It is AWFUL. Jonathan, like his brother David, is effortlessly leftist. And as for the panel – well, good old BBC favourite anti-Conservative Chris Patten was there, to provide balance! Meanwhile. John Denham (= good guy because he opposed the liberation of Iraq) and Olly Grender (Nice Paddy Ashdown associated Liberal) ensured … Continue reading
