    On the subject of ‘Holding Power To Account, If Selectively (c) Boaden. H, et Al, Tone, Danny, Chris, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, Titch, Bob, Carol, Ted & Alice..)’:


    ‘The BBC’s senior compliance officer has backed his team’s decision not to disclose details about the recruitment of 23 high-profile journalists.’

    As the country gets flushed down the toilet by a vast collection of dopes, dupes and players, the state media reckons it is above having to answer anything too. They demand the right to ask, but then refuse to answer if they are the target.

    ‘“The Data Protection Act isn’t supposed to be about keeping everything completely private… If you work for the BBC, a publicly funded body, then there are expectations that the process by which you got the job was acceptable.”

    The BBC is literally a law unto itself. And allowed to be so.

    This is too unique to sustain much longer on creibility and credulity beyond integrity, and maybe the new Trust Chair can be asked her views?

    My distain for the BBC’s hiding behind a certain term (even when quoting their own DG’s words it gets passed out via a non-return valve) has now seen the surreal crank up to plain bonkers:


    I’ll quote a reply post:

    Neil Mac
    I often wonder why we don’t name these “spokespersons” anyway. Giving them this mask of anonymity surely encourages the dark arts of spin and double-briefing, They’re as accountable as their organisations. Why not put their names to it?

    He asked, rhetorically.

    One to pose of the new Trust chair, maybe around the next time the top floor team start singing the ‘transparency’ hymn, albeit via anonymous spokesweasels (another, more handsome option?).

    For INBBC to censor?:-




    • George R says:

      This is what Islamic jihad-infiltrated Britain has become, thanks to the ‘diverse’ ideology enabled by UK political class (inc BBC’s T. HALL).
      And it’s early days.

        “The SAS has moved part of its anti-terror team to a forward base near London, amid concerns that a prolonged attack may be staged in that city. MI5 also referred to the Mumbai atrocity of 2008 as a comparison”



        • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

          “… Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, speaking after Mr Cameron was rushed to hospital, described the London bombs as ‘an attack on Islam’ and warned of the dangers of Right-wing anti-Muslim reprisals”.


    • Joshaw says:


      Fine, so long as they ensure an Iranian Embassy or Gibraltar result.


    • noggin says:

      “Welcome to David Cameron’s Britain.
      The U.K. government worked with Islamic supremacists that it deluded itself into thinking were ‘moderates,’ allowing them to gain immense influence over the government and media.
      It funded liars who exaggerated claims of Muslim victimhood, allowing them to propagate throughout the country their narrative that opposing jihad terror amounted to ‘racism’ and ‘bigotry.’
      It completely internalized that narrative, ignoring for years an Islamic supremacist takeover of public schools and the victimization of thousands of British girls by Muslim rape gangs, so as to avoid accusations of “racism.”
      It hounded and demonized foes of jihad terror and banned Pamela Geller and me from the country for pointing out that Islam had a doctrine of violence.
      This is the Britain the UK elites have made.
      … And now they have to live in it”.

    For alternative views on his glittering contributions, it might be worth looking up the comments on old ‘The Editors’ threads he penned… assuming any made the cut he seemed so keen on.


    Almost 50% out before early doors. So, more a broadcast-only kind of guy.

    Meanwhile, ‘a site where editors from across BBC News share our information and updates’ has not been updated since… June. And not much else before.

    News Flash, bBC declare national day of mourning, COBRA recalled, no baby pandas for edinburgh zoo.

    must be a slow news day.


  8. noggin says:

    of course innocent until proven guilty
    Just ask any London Muslim who knows, or can get to Campden Hill, Notting Hill
    “39-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to assaulting MP George “Jew free zone” Galloway in a London street.
    Neil Masterson, of Campden Hill, Notting Hill, denies assaulting the Respect MP for Bradford West while Mr Galloway was posing for pictures in nearby Golborne Road on Friday.”



  9. George R says:

    Does INBBC’s T.HALL approve of Cameron ‘plan’ to spread the ‘diversity’ of Islamic jihadists throughout Britain?:-

    ‘Telegraph’ (£)-
    “David Cameron revives powers to relocate terror suspects to combat jihadist threat.”


    What the English shires always wanted: the ‘diversity’ of Islamic jihadists.

    My latest COMPLAINT went in today after watching Newsnight with Jack Dromey.


    I suspect the BBC must have given Harriet’s husband an easy ride due to Labour Spin Machine making it a condition for him to appear on Newsnight:

    Imagine the call from Labour HQ went something like:
    ” so long Ian as Laura does not mention the relevance of Dromey and his wife were senior executives of National Council for Civil Liberties when they were facilitating and giving succor to PIE.”

    Cannot think of any other reason as certainly the obvious link is there when talking about Pakistani Pedophiles, Labour run Council, Labour MP for the Borough, Labour Police Commissioner, Labour Home Office Minister receiving reports in 2002 etc.


    My Full Complaint:

    You interviewed Jack Dromey, Labour Shadow Minister about the report on Pakistani abuse of underage girls in Rotherham and the current Labour PCC not resigning.

    You did not however report relevant facts of close involvement of ‘Pedophile’ alliances ‘conflict of interest’ of the interviewee and his wife, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, who were both facilitators and giving succor to Pedophile Information Exchange when they themselves were involved with the National Council for Civil Liberties at senior levels many years ago.

    One could not imagine Newsnight not taking the opportunity to raise this relevance had it been a Conservative interviewee.

    Indeed you managed to ‘out’ a non-pedophile Conservative ex-donor, (McAlpine) who you had to compensate for your error.

    Why do you selectively do this, giving one the distinct impression you are omitting relevant facts for political reasons?
