Although the focus of this blog is BBC bias, I wanted to take a moment or two to review a book by a reader and supporter of the site. His  name is DC Alden and his new book is called “The Horse at the Gates”.  

I have to say that I found the book to be a cracking read. The plot is simple but devastating. A nuclear blast detonated in Pakistan kicks the story into gear. It’s a suicide bombing on a vast scale. This triggers mass immigration into the UK, under EU rules.As the PM prepares to adopt tough immigration policies to deal with the crisis, a car bomb detonates in Downing Street, killing most of the cabinet. Simultaneously, a bomb explodes at the Luton Central Mosque, creating outrage across the Muslim world.

That basically sets the plot into play as a gradual power play emerges. Britain is on the way to becoming part of Dar al Islam. Who can stop the events that unfold? What role does the media play in reporting the unfolding   ? How do our politicians respond to the new Treaty?

I don’t want to spoil the plot for you but the pace is terrific, the characters well rounded, the manipulation of media and public opinion chilling and there are several themes running across the plot which will resonate with the discerning reader.

Hope you decide to buy the book and give it a whirl – here’s the link.

My thanks to the author and for his kind words re Biased BBC.

    Mob Attacks on Iraqi Christian Businesses Raise Security Concerns <img src=”” alt=”The image shown here, taken from a video posted online, is purported to show attacks on businesses in northern Iraq following a sermon Dec. 2. The authenticity of the video could not be verified. “/>

    A rash of attacks on Christian-owned businesses in northern Iraq has raised troubling questions about the future safety of the country’s shrinking Christian community, particularly as U.S. forces withdraw completely from the nation they’ve refereed since 2003.

    So here we have a story the BBC will not be covering, its only Christians being persecuted, its not like they are real human beings with human rights.

    How many islamofascists have the BBC invited on prime time air to complain about islamophobia in the West, about the terrible treatment of muslims by the West. If the BBC were to report on real persecution it would be covering the persecution of Christians an Jews and Hindhus and Sikhs by islamofascism.
