If you have, then the BBC wants to know. We all know the sort of things that happen and how upsetting they can be – when the lack of a wheelchair ramp means you cannot get to an art gallery, when the selection committee looks askance at your application because of your health problems, when persecution by feral youths drives you to burn yourself and your daughter to death…

…it does lead us quite nicely to the BBC’s political class mantra. They’re actually going to allow comments on this story and so must think that they’re onto a winner.

They can only think – if that’s not too strong an expression – and confront this problem (which certainly is too strong an expression) in terms of a clash of competing victimhoods.
You see, Francecca Hardwick wasn’t burned by her distraught and desperate mother as the result of 10 years of barbarians persecuting them in their home and the utter abdication of the authorities from their paid and, in the police’s case, sworn duties – far from it.
She died because some individuals still don’t understand people with ‘learning difficulties.’
David listen to the last 2 days of drive. Peter Allen is still going all at it.
I now have to stoop down and hurt my back to get at any bloody light switches, door handles and lift buttons.
Discrimination of the many by the few?
Is there any need to bomb this site with tenous examples of the BBCs failure to communicate and underlining it as proof that they are biased.
We know they are biased, there are THOUSANDS of good examples of this strewn through the site.
But levering in stuff like this waters the site down and makes it look like the work of a bunch of vindictive cultists with too much time on their hands.
The constant stream of petty examples is also a total turn off to people both placing comments and reading them.
I wrote the following comment to the BBC:
Does it matter that Mrs Pilkington and her family were mentally handicapped to varying degrees?
Does it matter that they belonged (according to the liberal/left) to a group worthy of special interest?
It should not. The Pilkington family were tortured, suffering human beings. That is all that should have mattered.
But in Britain today, that is no longer the case.
Had the Pilkingtons been black, they would have been a priority case for the police.
What a terrible indictment of socialist Britain that some animals are more equal than others, and common decency has been trampled under the mantra of Group Rights.
All aided and abetted, incidentally, by the BBC.

Why this shows BBC bias is that here is a case when the whole Left-liberal project (which the BBC supports by its incessant anti-punishment, anti-prison, anti-police propaganda) has destroyed human lives.
The police ‘leadership’; politically correct like their fellow liberals in the BBC have put in place systems whereby they’d rather do anything than investigate repeated youth crimes and intimidation from ‘the most vulnerable’ in the land – the underclass. The underclass is a creation of the wlefare state, progressive education, the authorities’ abandonment of the very notion of punishment and the permissive society in which young savages’ ‘rights’ not to be ‘hassled’ by the police trump this poor, distraught woman’s right not to be persecuted.
In their bias, either the BBC didn’t see that that’s what happened [and that all left-liberals are guilty for supporting a hell on earth], and thus saw it in terms of their Gramscian ‘we are all victims of an oppressive system according to our victim group’ or that it decided to disguise it by pretending, falsely, that this was about spaccy-bashing.
It wasn’t; it was the BBC’s beloved feminised welfare state in deadly action.
