Question to start the week. How often can you get the term “Bad for Britain” and the word “isolated” into a news programme? The answer is, lots, based on this morning’s Today programme. Did you catch it? Even by BBC standards, this was visceral hostility towards the Conservative Party. At one point, a trailer for a later story asked “Is the Coalition doomed?”. We had David Miliband on to offer us his wisdom here – lunatic as ever – meanwhile John Humphyrs got stuck into Danny Alexander here….and Nick Robinson joined in the fray. The BBC has rarely been as one-sided as it has been on the coverage of this story since Cameron refused to grovel to Merkozy. I suppose the Euromillions the BBC receives explains some of the visceral hatred towards Cameron and those evil “Eurosceptics.” I have to declare my bias now and say I would love to see this Coalition fall, for there to be an election right now, and for a Conservative/UKIP coalition to replace what we have. Can you IMAGINE the BBC response to that eventuality? The BBC is doing everything possible to triangulate Cameron to ensure he does NOTHING more to placate the “Eurosceptics” and instead embarks on a series of appeasements to the Lib-Dems. This is politics the BBC is playing, not impartially reporting the news. It is agenda setting, pro-Labour and slavishly pro EU.
JUST ANOTHER BIASED MONDAY

The Radio 5 phone in is a hoot, Dame Nikki gives a ‘shhooosh’ on the Radio because someone called AHMED (guess the religion) tells us he’s stupied the EU (but doesn’t tell us what) and says Cameron is wrong.
Ahmed (who should know better) tells us that the EU is no different from the UK with different parts of the UK economy going at different rates.
This is of course a LIE as Dame Nikki knows, we have political union (of a sort) in the UK, we have the same benefits and currency across the UK, which is also why the US economy works but the EU one does not.
Then a real classic from gameshow Nikki. “The media is eurosceptic” claims Dame Nicola Campbell.
Has he never listened to the utter shit pumped out by the BBC in favour of the EU? He personally is responsible for much of it.
Finally on the FSA Dame Nicola was asking if the bankers shouldn’t have gone to jail, yes Dame Nikki but what about the men who created the FSA, you know your personal friend Gordon Brown?
I heard that, Martin, Ahmed was an idiot.
Ah some Liebore tool now says basically live on air that the British people are ‘thick’ for not understanding what the EU is about.
I know best we do away with voting as well and just leave Liebore in charge.
The only thing, currently, that’s bad for Britain, seems to be the BBC. Is there an antidote?
Is there an antidote?
Prevention is better than cure, I have always been told.
So, given there seems to be a raging infectious disease intent on inflicting harm, at the very least am I not entitled to separate my family from exposur? The BBC is not chicken pox, where you suffer but get a kind of immunity. It is an ebola, like the EU, eating the host from within to support itself.
What’s needed is an isolation ward, and if any are that barking, they can pay to enter and suffer the consequences.
‘an election right now, and for a Conservative/UKIP coalition to replace what we have.’
Which appears to be…
Good article by Boris defining Merkozy as the Supra National And Fiscal Union ( SNAFU ).
He also has a pop at the beeboids – quelle surprise!
I am sure that he is not confusing SNAFU with the US military usage of the acronym!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The BBc will overplay it’s hand. We should really be encouraging them.
Hopefully there will come a moment when it is clear to most English exactly where the BBC stands and at this moment it will be finished.
It could get very interesting and amusing.
40 years of liberal left indoctrination up in smoke- hopefully.
Dave S, You would hope so but alas I think you over estimate the attention that your average Englishman or Briton pays to the subject. As you are probably aware, X Facter is far more important to most than the fate of their country. I bloody well annoys the hell out of me.
Good point sir!
Maybe a few of us could do a Dez and go undercover.
We could implore the BBC to be more supportive of Balls, the Euro and lose any inhibitions about global warming…get off the fence as it were.
I for one would just love to tempt Russell Brand back to tickling our ribs and would happily sacrifice my partners turkey basted zygotes for the sheer pleasure of seeing Sarah Montagues pension reflect her brilliance.
We get the BBC on the cheap say I…and my cat could easily double as a tiger should we get the right angle and Attenboroughs family to narrate it all!
Yet, maybe I`m not as oleagenious as Roger Bolton yet…but give me time!
these three amongst others…some were posted on the previous open thread (or maybe the EU thread)
On all those (plus others) the comments are ripping the BBC a new one, the most recent have a few trying to play catch-up and throwing in xenophobe an dlittle Englanders etc but click “ALL” comments then on “most recommended”…if the BBC ever reads the comments on their news articles they’d be complete fuckwits not to realise they are really going against the tide on this.
I have never been a great supporter of the Lib Dems (and have sometimes had the fancy that it was the party at the heart of some beeboids) but the Humphries interview of Danny Alexander this morning was a disgrace – Humph had quotes from Uncle Tom Cobley and all and each time DA (same initials as a well known 50s hair cut) tried to say one thing then Humph came back with ‘Ah….but so-an-so said this’ – grim determination on Humph’s part to encourage a ‘split’ in the coalition. DA was scarce allowed to say three words together without an interruption on point scoring basis.
BBC-EU: always unfairly and irrationally politically opposed to Geert WILDERS.
‘Today’ was typically disgraceful re-Wilders this morning, getting its political chums to criticise his politics in his absence.
To give Geert Wilders a chance, which BBC-EU doesn’t, here is a speech he made in September, which shows why BBC-EU is always so politically hostile towards him:
Geert Wilders On Islam, Europe, And The Nation-State
Yes, Holland is one to watch, I think.
“I’m not a hardline Eurosceptic, but even I can see that the BBC is biased in its reporting of the eurozone crisis ”
By Cristina Odone
Most of what I’m seeing in the US media does say that Britain is “isolated”, but precious few seem to think that’s a bad thing right now. In fact, more people are saying the Euro is doomed and pretty much agree with Terry Smith’s assessment.
If anything, the BBC is becoming increasingly isolated on this one.
Stage Performer Maitlis totally unable to cope with Lord Jones’ intelligent points about why Britain industry and the City are better off not signing up to the EU Titanic. She’s obviously reading questions off a piece of paper or monitor, and can barely keep up with Jones explaining the reality that countries have their own interests and France and Germany need Britain just as much as Britain needs open trade with Europe.
She couldn’t really challenge him because she had nothing to say. Funny.
Another amusing aspect is how normally when the Lib Dems are seen to have to swallow a Conservative policy in the Coalition you get a chorus of Lib Dems and Labourites saying “This isn’t what people voted for”. But of course on this issue they can’t say that because ignoring the electorate is integral to the whole exercise. If the Lib Dems want to know what isolation looks like I suggest their MPs resign en masse to fight by-elections on the issue.
Europe, Murdoch, climate change, AV…the BBC are hysterical and wrong on every issue.
The longer that they spend on it…the further removed that they are from the opinions of the British people.
So it is that we get Roy Jenkins in a Womble suit by way of analysis…the BBC can`t bring themselves to be anything else.
Yet the rumblings will gather-why do we pay traitors to connive at undermining the very common sense of the mass of the British?..and how long will we let our faces be slapped by hacks from Oxbridge who are so weasly, ignorant, lazy and arrogant.
Can`t pay-won`t pay!
If the LibDems are that angry all they need do – or all Clegg needs do, since he’s an MP – is move a Commons motion of no confidence in the government. Not one BBC dildo in an interview with “incandescent” LibDems has asked why this isn’t being done.
Of course the LibDems won’t move such a motion because they know (and the BBC knows) that – if they succeed in passing such a motion – they’d be wiped out in a general election. Cameron now knows – if he didn’t know before – that he can cheerfully ignore anything the LibDems “demand”. He’s called their bluff and there’s nothing the LibDems can or will do. Mind you he could have called their bluff in May 2010 and formed a minority administration while daring the LibDems either to force another general election or support another Brown government. The LibDems would have committed political suicide with either of those two alternatives and would – willy nilly – have let the Conservatives proceed with their tacit support.
is this a first for the bbc. videos of nigle farage quotes from ukip .what ever next oh yea the hon nick griffin.
The more they have Gleggy boy on the more he sounds like somebody who sees his chance of becoming a euro-commisar and adding to his euro pension slipping away.
“The European Union has cracked. Good. ”
Just a general comment – I hate & detest the BBC more with every passing day. I resent that my licence fee goes to pay for the brain washing that this blatently disgusting & biased coorporation pumps out to the masses – most of whom don’t even question the reporting
The Brussels Broadcasting Corporation pins failure to save the euro on David Cameron
By Kathy Gyngell
Statistical breakdown of the BBC’s EU coverage is courtesy of News-watch, the independent broadcasting monitor commissioned by Global Britain
SKY reported it exactly the same way.
Why? As it’s the news………..real events.
You guys just want to censor real life, so your right wing myths make more sense
The biggest censor of real life in this country is the BBC. Study closely its extreme reluctance to report the grim truth about Islam, the overall failure of multiculturalism, the pathetic inadequacy of alternative energy sources, the appalling legacy of New Labour, the most spendthrift & irresponsible government of recent times, the appalling decline in educational standards & the cultural indoctrination, & sexualisation of children. Then study the Frankfurt School’s blueprint for the destruction of the nation state.
The point, once again, Mathrawk, is that we have to pay for the beeboid ‘narrative’ – if we don’t we could go to prison. If I don’t like the Daily Mail I don’t buy it. I don’t have to pay the owners of the Daily Mail £145 a year just so I can read another paper. ‘The BBC is not impartial or neutral.’ The words of none other than, Andrew Marr, a 5 star BBC Commissar. Read some of his other quotes, you’ll begin to get the picture.
“Impartial? The BBC made it sound as if the world had ended after Cameron’s historic veto ”

So the BEEB is biased, as it doesn’t agree with the completely impartial, right wing, conservative party supporting, eurosceptic, daily mail
I think you’ve just said it. If the BEEB weren’t biased we wouldn’t know who it does or doesn’t agree with.
It’s really not the BEEBs fault, that 50% of the western world’s leaders, most business leaders, and his own deputy PM are criticising Cameron.
50%, and the BBC sided with that half. You keep proving that the BBC is biased, although I guess you don’t realize it.
Nor is it the BBC’s fault that the overwhelming number of the UK public agree with Cameron. It’s just they don’t like to report it. Try harder.
You also forgot to include ‘right wing’ and ‘Daily Mail’ in this post, so I ended up still reading.
Please be consistent.
The only reality worth a light is the opinion of us, the voters of Britain. Test it by an election or a referendum and end the matter.
An election or referendum on other matters might be a precedent some might feel a step too far. Which would appear to be why it is resisted, uniquely.
