    Yet another Labour peer caught out.

    Lords fiasco: Labour hit by new lobby row
    A Labour peer who lobbied for a Las Vegas-style supercasino in Blackpool failed in debates to disclose his financial links with the tycoon behind the proposal.

    Yet another socialist corruption story that the BBC deem to be ‘not newsworthy’

    BBC wasted legal fees to protect ‘rape’ personality
    The BBC has spent licence-payers’ money in a failed attempt to prevent The Mail on Sunday publishing a story about how one of the Corporation’s personalities had falsely accused her former boyfriend of rape.
    Last Friday, without notifying The Mail on Sunday, which was therefore not represented at the hearing, BBC lawyers took out a court order to insist that their client was entitled to her anonymity • even though this is guaranteed by law and was at no point under threat. So secret was the court order, this newspaper was even banned from mentioning its existence.
    Now, after complaints from The Mail on Sunday, the order has been amended, allowing us to reveal the lengths to which the BBC will go to protect celebrities, however serious the allegations.

    This is not what the licence tax is for.
    The BBC, like politicians (especially Labour ones) rotten to the core.

    Somalia’s president is a ‘MODERATE’ to the BBC, but is a ‘JIHADIST’ to ‘Jihadwatch’:

    1.) BBC:

    ‘Islamist elected Somali president’

    “Moderate Islamist leader Sheikh Sharif Ahmed has been elected Somalia’s new president, after a secret ballot of members of parliament.”

    2.) ‘Jihadwatch’:

    ‘Jihadist elected Somali’s president’

    (Robert Spencer)


    “In the Fall 2007 issue of the Journal of International Security Affairs I published an article entitled ‘Somalia: Rise and Fall of An Islamist Regime,’ but the story wasn’t over: now the group whose fall and rise I traced there is back in power. In June 2006 Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed claimed national power, but by the end of that year the Sharia regime in Somalia had been toppled; now Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed is the President of Somalia.”

    I wanted to do a compare and contrast between the BBC’s hurricane Katrina and Kentucky cold-snap coverage…

    Yep, the BBC haven’t even reported on the woeful response of FEMA to the weather that has caused the death of 42 and cut power to 1.5m.

    Moonblat nibbler: But they did report yesterday the Sydney heatwave as causing 15 deaths.

    The EU Referendum blog, as always, is fully on the ball:
