    Am I the only person to be baffled at the prominence given on the BBC website to a Palestinian man allegedly cheated out of a Banksy painting on the door of his house in Gaza bombed during the recent war? Clearly some point is being made here but I can’t work out what it is. Can anyone enlighten me as to why this story warrants being posted on an international news site?

    R2 News 9am and 10 am Saturday. Both lead with Labour party electoral pledges and we hear from two labour types at 9am and one has a slot all to himself to explain policy at 10… Conservatives and Lib Dems just have policies given one sentence by newsreader both bulletins.
    Why am I not surprised> Nothing detrimental to say about UKIP, so no mention of them.

    BBC News 24. 1145. Dateline.

    Openly racist and misandrist Nabila Ramdani, having spewed her racially prejudiced bile live on TV 15th January 2015 continues to be paid fees by the BBC (This Week with Andrew Neil). I logged the incident on this website at the time.

    In BBC world it’s OK to be a racist bigot if you are a woman. Diane Abbott, Nabila Ramdani and Harriot Harmon all have expressed openly racist views on TV. All to the face of the intended ‘victim’ of the racial abuse.

    Yet the BBC continue to pay them. Whilst I don’t agree there is any moral basis for ‘hate crimes’ or ‘thought crimes’, we have them. Yet have any of these women had their collar felt? The evidence is available online.

    Nabila Ramdani is Racist scum. I wouldn’t p!55 on her if she was on fire. She should be deported and banned from our country.

    Scrap the BBC. Paying immoral racist scum like Ms Ramdani (with our money) to infect the thinking of our citizens.

      You forgot to mention Yasmin Alibhai-Brown on this week’s Question Time.

      Ms Alibhai-Brown was given carte blanche by Dimbledore to rail against what she sees as the ‘demonisation’ of the SNP by all the politicos and the media.

      Not one of the gutless cowards on the panel (including Peter Hitchens) had the courage to remind Ms Alibhai-Brown of her own demonisation of UKIP.

      Still, one rule for hypocritical progressives, another for anyone who disagrees with them, eh?

        • GCooper says:

          Would someone like to remind me what are the achievements that have led the BBC to feel Ms Greer is qualified to voice her banal opinions about anything?
          Other than being black and female, of course.


          • Angrymanupnorth says:

            I think her opinions are pathetic and inhuman rather than just banal.

            She hates men, she hates white people, if you are both white and male she believes you are evil incarnate.

            In short, fully qualified for the BBC!

          • ID says:

            Mr. Gladstone. The people who actually have the courage to tell the truth about Islam and then are subjected to continual intimidation and death threats are never mentioned in the media. Muslims seem to have pissed off the Dutch and Swiss in a big way. But if you listen to the BBC, you would have the impression that the Dutch and Swiss are intolerant bigots.

            Practically no one has heard of the Swiss satirist Andreas Thiel but when he writes in the Weltwoche about Islam as below, he receives a number of death threats.
            (typical extract below)

            The Shadow of the East

            Some say the violent excesses of murdering Muslims has nothing to do with the Koran. The Holy Text is peaceful and filled with goodness. This is false. The Koran is nothing but an incitement to violence, a manual for waging war and implementing oppression. When I read the book, I was shocked. A polemic by Andreas Thiel.

            The Koran as a Moral Foundation
            Although Mohammed often likes to use the formula «God is merciful», he never mentions basic religious concepts such as mercy, love or forgiveness. Mohammed speaks with the voice of hatred. No one should be surprised that Islamic zealots become terrorists. This is because violence and the thirst for vengeance run through the teachings of Mohammed to the exclusion of much else.

            Sure 2, 191
            Sure 2, 216
            Sure 4, 74
            Sure 4, 84
            Sure 4, 89
            Sure 4, 104
            Sure 4, 115/116
            Sure 4, 14
            Sure 5, 33
            Sure 5, 82
            Sure 8, 15–17
            Sure 8, 39
            Sure 8, 67
            Sure 9,
            Sure 9, 1
            Sure 9, 29
            Sure 9, 84, etc.

            Clearly, this is not a crude, gratuitous attempt to insult Muslims. Yet a simple critique of the ROP could end in your death. Mealy mouthed politicians and equivocating media shits, know where their self-interest lies and are also quite interested in their self preservation.
            Muslims could murder half the world and enslave the rest, but the BBC would still parrot
            Islam is the religion of peace. The BBC’s constant repetition of PC platitudes seems to have led to self brainwashing , a consequent reduction in reasoning power and so a loss of contact with reality.

      • I Can See Clearly Now says:

        The Daily Mail spends four years, ten months, of every five years telling how UKIP is right and then rubbishing them in favour of the Tories at election time. This seemed a good change, but they still revert to form at the end. In particular, they’re like the Beeb and all the others trying a self-fulfilling prophecy that ‘UKIP’s vote is crumbling’.

        It comes after Ukip’s share of the vote in recent polls has eroded significantly from highs of 19 per cent late last year, to just 10 per cent in several polls over the past month.

        Check ukpolling; they still show the average at 14%. But the last two polls had UKIP at 17% and 18%. We’ll probably get polls tonight taken after the debate. The DM is being economical with the actualité.



        • Manonclaphamomnibus says:

          I now buy the Express, but read the Mail if its bought by one of the females on the female bias day.
          But with UKIP, there is confusion about what will happen to the ant-establishment vote in Labour and Tory seats, which with evidence from those last few by-Elections, could produce an untold number of surprises.
          Presumably the 18 percent would be those who say they are UKIP voters, rather than include those who would not admit the intention to vote UKIP, due to other reasons such as tactical voting of a fear of left-wing thugs from a BBC audience, smashing up their home if they find out they support UKIP.

      Yet more people who haven’t ‘got it’ yet!

      ‘Although Saudi Arabia, which is currently waging war on Iranian-backed Houthi militiamen in Yemen, “welcomed” the nuclear agreement’

      Saudi decides America complies ! Obama was bought and paid for long before he became President, I’m sure his reward when he leaves office will be great.

      It doesn’t matter what’s in Israel’s or any other countries best interest when Saudi is controlling US foreign policy in the region.

      The Saudis are up to some dodgy dealing with the Iranians, trying to end their age old hostilities with them, to get them onside somehow and this is the reason behind the nuclear agreement.

      Once you start to look at it through the lens of what Saudi wants it all begins to make a lot more sense.

    From Our Own Correspondent R4 was doing its bit to raise the consciousness of the masses this morning. China apparently now has a million millionaires and quite a lot of billionaires and the BBC is worried that the Chinese government is losing its way as far as “equality” is concerned and betraying Maoist principles. It really is shocking that reactionary and revisionist elements in the Chinese government are betraying correct socialist principles and becoming running imperialist lapdogs. Maybe BBC Propaganda Unit No. 1 will invite these Chinese enemies of the peasants and workers for a self-denunciation session before People’s Commissar Tong Zhi Nao Ti on the Today Programme. I’m sure watching the BBC’s output for a few hours would re-educate them sufficiently in the ideas of progressive socialism.

  13. Angrymanupnorth says:


    BBC News 24 continues to ramp up its taxpayer funded Labour Party political broadcast, and anti-British, anti-English rhetoric. The BBC News channel is currently almost exclusively focused on this. The irony is perhaps lost on the great unwashed. Wealthy Beeboids on salaries grossly in excess of the national average, glorifying wealthy celebrities (its Ben Elton today) talking up the Labour Party, which evidently represents the working people of Britain. Orwell would be shocked. The sheeple lap it up.

    No criticism of Labour, no analysis, lots of ‘opponents say….’ to give a veneer of impartiality.

    What are UKIP, and Farage, doing? Robin Bryant suggests in Margate “He’s having a pint of beer. That’s the long and short of it really.” Except it isn’t is it Robin, who gets the ‘someone says UKIP are racists’ confirmation in and infers that the stating of facts is ‘controversial’? Yep truth and facts are inconvenient and controversial subjects for the Common Purpose BBC mind manipulators.

    Angryman says that the BBC and the Labour Party are corrupt immoral racist divisionists. Could the BBC report that with the usual ‘critics say…’ introduction? Imagine –

    “ The Labour Party have promised to help people out by increasing tax on the rich and making the NHS better. However, critics say that they are proven liars and propagandists who are only too happy to lie to the public and con them into voting Labour. Critics also align them with 1930’s German National Socialists, and highlight their proven links to rape gangs, ISIS and other Islamofascists.” Can’t see it myself, however truthful this statement may be.

    BBC propagandist scum. Robin Bryant. Another enemy of Britain, enemy of our people and distorter of the democratic process.

    Scrap the immoral Telly Tax.

    • Guest Who says:

      Along with ‘daring’, another term much beloved of BBC starry-eyed Editorial Guideline students, I remain to be convinced as to what about gunning down unarmed children (see, I can do it too) gets to be accorded ‘audacious’ (showing a willingness to take surprisingly bold risks).


      • TrueToo says:

        The BBC is really fond of the adjective audacious, which has a positive meaning, to describe Islamic terrorist scum who murder innocents, including children. They use it frequently, including during the atrocious Mumbai attack – in which the terrorists were described as “determined young men” and the attack as “audacious.”

        Without doubt the BBC is the enemy.

  20. Pounce says:

    Can anybody please explain what the bBC’s so called news service does for a living, not only is it biased, but the news stories it pushes out are crap , take for example this breaking news story from Iraq:
    Iraq Tikrit: looting and lawlessness follow recapture
    Iraqi Shia militia, who helped recapture Tikrit from Islamic State (IS), are being pulled out of the city amid reports of violence and looting. The militia made up the vast majority of pro-government forces that retook the city over the past week.But people in Tikrit say the city’s liberators have since stolen cars and ransacked government buildings….A correspondent for Reuters reported seeing an Islamic State fighter surrounded by a mob and stabbed to death, as well as the corpse of another being dragged by a car.

    So the bBC reports on how the peaceful followers of the Shia branch of Islam are concerned about reports of looting and disorder after the capture of the town of Tikrit, (which they conveniently leave out is a Sunni town. ) and so in order to keep the peace they pull the Shia militia out because people are stealing cars. Here is how Reuters is reporting the same story:
    Special Report – After Iraqi forces take Tikrit, a wave of looting and lynching
    (Reuters) – On April 1, the city of Tikrit was liberated from the extremist group Islamic State. The Shi’ite-led central government and allied militias, after a month-long battle, had expelled the barbarous Sunni radicals. Then, some of the liberators took revenge. Near the charred, bullet-scarred government headquarters, two federal policemen flanked a suspected Islamic State fighter. Urged on by a furious mob, the two officers took out knives and repeatedly stabbed the man in the neck and slit his throat. The killing was witnessed by two Reuters correspondents. Remember this from the bBC:
    A correspondent for Reuters reported the corpse being dragged by a car.
    Reported, actually it is fact, as Reuters have a photo of the incident:

    The leftwing bBC, who only report the news they want you to hear.

    “Muslims are not radicalized by poverty, racism or lack of integration.
    Muslims are radicalized by Islam.
    The fact is that Islam is the only religion where its followers become more violent the more they follow their religion.”

    The bBC made a huge song and dance about how Mr Farage made a point about Africans coming to the UK in which to get treated for Aids.
    Here is a current news story which the bbC is covering:
    Homeless tenant wins Supreme Court battle to stay in London
    A woman left homeless when she could no longer afford the rent on her London home has won a legal battle against attempts to move her out of the city. Titina Nzolameso was offered a property in Bletchley, near Milton Keynes, after the government’s benefits cap made her Westminster rent unaffordable. When she refused to leave, Westminster City Council decided its legal duty to her had ended – leaving her homeless.The Supreme Court on Thursday quashed the authority’s decision.Its ruling means Ms Nzolameso, who argued that moving to Buckinghamshire would deprive her of the network of friends that supported her during ill health, can stay in the capital.

    Here is the comment from the Daily Express which says so much more than the sanitised bbC version:
    Welfare state should not pay for luxury lifestyle of Titina Nzolameso
    Congolese immigrant Titina Nzolameso knows no shame. Britain gave her asylum and citizenship, treated her HIV and diabetes and educated her children.
    Titina Nzolameso was evicted from her four-bedroom central London flat in 2012 after falling into rent arrears. The Congolese refugee snubbed the offer of a bigger, cheaper home, saying she wanted to stay near friends and not have her children move school. Westminster City Council washed their hands of her, saying she had made herself intentionally homeless. Nzolameso has spent the last three years taking her case, funded by legal aid, through the courts.


    • Pounce says:

      And there’s more:
      Migrant mum-of-5 WINS battle to stay in London after refusing council home OUTSIDE capital
      Nzolameso, a single mother, came to Britain from the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1998 and claimed asylum. She now has British citizenship. She and her children, all aged between 15 and 10, moved to Westminster in 2008. Her £1,150-a-week rent was covered by housing benefit but she fell into arrears and was evicted after a £500-a-week cap came into force in early 2012. Westminster City Council was unable to find the family a suitable home she could afford inside the borough so it offered her a bigger, cheaper property near Milton Keynes – just 50 miles away.
      But the refugee, who is HIV positive and has diabetes, snubbed the offer saying she wanted to stay near friends, not have her children move school and wanted a “safe” place to take her medication. When she turned her nose up at the Milton Keynes property, the council washed their hands of the woman, saying she had made herself intentionally homeless.

      Well, it is embarrassing for England, that Scotland have joined Ulster in rejecting the anti-British Establishment, for both pro-Scottish and pro-British reasons. But apparently the Establishment are now relying on two out of three people in England and Wales, voting for establishment Zombies.

      I think it is now obvious that the Union could only survive with an equal federation of powers for the four nations, to the point of a Confederacy with no internal powers other than relations between the four nations. So I hope the SNP do well, because the establishment would have too chose between this or the break up of the UK.

    Something not right!

    Polls must be conniving in a MSM con.

    How can Labour be on a par with Tories for example?

    What sort of nutter would vote for a party that severely trashed Nations finances, not once, but last two times they were in power?

    That allowed into the Nation net 4 million immigrants, over 1 million of them mussies, which they know a small proportion actually hate us and a thousand or so are not happy here they want to go back to fight Jihad!

    Voting for Labour that did not build the houses, schools, hospitals for all these extra people, then constantly blame their successors with state media help which they rammed with Labour placements! Like we are idiots and do not understand it takes only a month or so for an immigrant to come here but many, many years to train doctors, plan and build houses and schools.

    Labour that went against the will of people, (largest demo ever ever), but made deliberate lies to support a lunatic America President whose Middle East adventures have buried maimed, radicalised and displaced literally millions – really MILLIONS! HEINOUS crime a Government can commit!

    The BBC has refused to hand over the emails of a deceased woman to her grieving husband, who believes they will prove she was ‘bullied’ by the Corporation’s management towards the end of her life.

      I am also intrigued by the precedent of an employee dying meaning their emails are redacted from outside view.

      Maybe we can expect a job ad in the Graun for a new department with a double-O rating to ensure any in-house unfortunate disclosures don’t get out, and forever remain the BBC’s little secret?

The editorial at least has observed impartiality, but the letters pages are littered with partisan claims that need a 2-3 week cycle to address. I know two mates who have written to ask what’s going on and why do these get selected? Not published.

      Now hold that thought and check out BBC’s James Cook’s tweet about how he got a hard time in Scotland yesterday;

      “What an extraordinary level of vicious abuse I have received today for simply reporting the news. Is this the country we want folks? Is it?”

      What James fails to get is that he works for a corporation that does not report news but wants and does influence it and guess what? The majority of the nation, those who don’t support Labour or the ROP, are getting heartily p*ssed off with him and his mates.

Moreover, the fact that Israel have repeatedly attempted to thwart Palestinian business at every opportunity and to economically exploit the Palistinians at every turn hasn’t been shown on the Beeb. In this context semantics is hardly significant. in contrast anyone that remotely studies Israels history recognises a country who is intent of spreading its borders showing utter contempt for its neighbours with the full backing of the U.S. who have done their level best to thawart a two state solution.

        If it was ‘Victorian Poverty’, the kid (who you are right, would not be black) wouldn’t be clothed in fine stitches, or wearing hardy footwear.

        But to today’s Beeboids, you can evidently still be poor whilst subscribing to SKY sports which you can watch on your i-pad, your i-phone and that latest TV which covers most of the wall of your house (paid for by others) with running clean water, electricity supply and indoor (yes indoor!) toilet and full sanitation.

        Nothing to do with poverty. Its to do with feckless adults who don’t face their parental responsibilities. But shite parents, like Islam, like bad mothers, like bad teachers, like bad nurses are no go areas for the BBC and Common Purpose. Even when the causes of problems are obvious (see farage last thursday) to speak the truth is a thought crime. Well cop a load of this confused leftards:

        Wake up BBC. Our children are suffering because our womenfolk are doing a shite job and their feckless feral lifestyle is being funded and facilitated by the infection of socialists and their corrosive mindset.

        Solutions? Scrap all benefits for healthy under 30 year olds. Scrap child benefit. No social housing for single parent ‘mums’. I could go on, but lefties are probably already boiling with their braindead faux outrage. One more – Imprisonment with fixed tariff with labour for women ‘choosing’ to have an abortion (I suggest about 5 years, but I am a softie, maybe 15 would be better?)

    • Manonclaphamomnibus says:

      You have absolutely no evidence whatsoever for that claim.
      Moreover others on this site point to a higher per capita income under the Tories.
      On this logic the country should be richer.
      Sadly you appear to have not noticed the burgeoning older population putting excessive strain on healthcare,the collapse in housing starts due to the conservative austerity budget and Gove diverting mainstream school budgets to the vanity free school initiative,placing provision inefficiently.
      The significant backdrop to this is That ,with the internationalisation of capitalism many large companies pay limited tax in this country eg Amazon paid about about 0.01%.
      Much of this movement of tax out of the country is facilitated by the City of London. As a result burdensome sections of the population are growing and our revenue base is shrinking.
      This is a recipe for one thing ; collapse.You will see this after the election irrespective of who controls the Government. The first thing that will go will be the Nhs which has been so badly damaged by Lansley that it is no longer repairable.
      Ironically one solution ,at least in the short term is for greater immigration since immigrants tend to be better educated and young and have a tendency not to end up on benefits.
      That way the balance between young and old can be mitigated.
      Heathy diets and lifestyles will also help to relive the burden of other on society by reducing morbidity levels.
      Ultimately it is my belief that the nation will collapse however and this process is ideologically manifested here and other Sites Sadly like radical Islam ,the nutcase right is in the ascendancy .


      • Techno says:

        “the collapse in housing starts due to the conservative austerity budget”

        Wow, that’s an amazing convolution I must say. Cutting a government budget would only make a difference to council housing, and none of that has been built for 30 years or more, not even under 13 years of Labour government. And last time I looked Labour is still not proposing to build any more council housing.

        Also, it is the EU that allows companies to declare their profits in any EU country, so they typically pick Luxembourg or Ireland as this is where corporation tax is lowest. What is your opinion on the European Union then?

        The NHS exceeded its budget in its first year 1948, and prescription charges were introduced in 1952, so it has never been sustainable solely by taxation right from the outset, but blinded left wingers like yourself won’t admit it.


      • I Can See Clearly Now says:

        You have absolutely no evidence whatsoever for that claim.

        So when Labour (and later, the Tories) moved to open-door immigration, they made housing, health and education provision for the immigrants, did they?

        Evidence please.

        Your claim is odd. I could have sworn that Miliband admitted last week ‘We got it wrong.’ Didn’t they forecast just 15k new immigrants per year?


      • Thoughtful says:

        ” immigrants tend to be better educated ”

        I think that has to be one of the most naïve statements I think I’ve ever heard!

        Aside from it being an admission that the UK education system has become so politically corrupted by left wing trades unions, it states that it has irredeemably failed !

        To think that the country is wasting the talents from the highly educated Somalis, Pakistanis, Nigerians, Ethiopians, Romanians, Turks, etc etc,

        You do realise that it is possible if you have sufficient money, to buy a degree from certain countries universities without examination don’t you?

        “You have absolutely no evidence whatsoever for that claim.”

        You avoid bumping into the obvious stomping elephant in the room and think most of the population missed it too, but they haven’t!

        Of course ‘ageing’ contributes to NHS, housing, benefits bill, infrastructure pressures, but by far the major factor, particularly on education as well, is the deliberate Labour importation of net 5 million immigrants into this country during there term wrecking the economy and social cohesion of this Nation!

        The fiscal impact of migration in the UK is small (less than +/-1% of GDP) and differs by migrant group (e.g. EEA migrants vs non-EEA migrants, recent migrants vs all migrants). The existing results are subject to numerous key assumptions.

        Look at the facts, not the lefts political rhetoric and nefarious figures rammed down our throats by the BBC, Labour, Greens and Liberal Socialists, .


        Exactly how many doctors, schools, houses and flats, hospitals, A&E places, civil servants required to service the populations of Wales and Northern Ireland do you think we need?

        Total population as at 2011 census was:

        Wales 3.36 million
        NI: 1,8 million

        About the same as the number of Labour mass immigration , which the LibCons have been unable to stem and turn around such a gigantic super tanker!

        You forget it takes only weeks or months for an immigrant to move here, but years and years to plan and build the houses and infrastructure to cope. Labours record average 29,000 houses per year built (lowest since the 1920s).

        I have tried to find this publication, but to no avail, neither the book nor the publisher searches have yielded any information – it doesn’t appear to exist – but perhaps it’s an in-house BBC publication, who knows ?

        Care to point us in the direction of a reliable source which would allow anyone to at least check out a precis of the book you cite as an authority on the BBC’s position, and also the author’s credentials/abilities/source of funding for the book ?

      All very interesting, as of now 14-50, it’s 0.2%
      A little fact I’ve never heard from any leftie, beeboid, guardianista, or Green is the amount of extra power that is required by the arrival in this country of every example of enrichment that lands here, either by plane, train or the back of a truck. I. E. People need power to live in this country, black, brown or ” disgustingly white” , we all need power to shit, to make tea, to watch the telly, to cook food etc. every one extra means more power required( is there anywhere an official figure for the average requirement of power ? Of living space ? Of water, food, road space, train seating space ? Would be very useful ).
      Now as there are more people here ( good thing to the lefties) then the daily requirement goes up, no ? So where does the extra power come from for an extra 5million, an extra 10 million ? An extra 20 million ? How many windmills would we need to keep pace with the extra mouths eating, cooking and shitting ? Will Natalie tell us ? Will Rodger ? Will they as hell as like.
      As far as I can see, the extra demand for resources like power, water, food, etc is the killer fact that ought in a sane country bring the locomotive of immigration to a grinding halt. When will it happen ?

    “We’ve all watched The West Wing”

    This is BBC News Channel second string anchor Chris Rogers at about 9.40 this morning. Perhaps to provide viewers with a break from the dizzying Guardian/Observer merry-go-round of paper reviewers the BBC has fetched in a pair of young trendies from new media : Ned Simons of Huffington Post and Jim Waterson of Buzzfeed.

    Maybe our Chris can be forgiven somewhat for his keeness to be seen to be down with the kids.

    But have we really all watched “West Wing”?

    Personally I’m more Sopranos or Breaking Bad.

    Maybe that’s because I don’t get off on ‘….the same snappy dialogue and semi-engaging stories unfold in the service of bigger government’


    I don’t mind my drama being a little far-fetched – but sci-fi ought to be labelled as such…

    ‘(West Wing)… presented a case for the notion that global warming isn’t just a theoretical hazard, but is already killing Americans – in this case by melting a glacier and causing a sudden catastrophe in an Alaskan village’


    Seems to me there’s a certain type who is a fan of West Wing – or ‘Wingnut’ as the Americans call the hard-core fans of the show.

    I digress, this was the BBC paper review and I think our Chris and his young trendy lefty new journos were excusing Ed Miliband for leaving his leaders debate notes in a cab or somesuch.

    This being Easter, a major news story was the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Pope making speeches about the persecution of Christians.

    Not a story that’s going to excite Buzzfeed or the Huff Post, I’m afraid. So there was not much interest or insight from our guest journos.

    Have to love our Chris for his closing thought:

    “Worrying times for people like Pope Francis”

    Implying – for people who have all watched West Wing – meh.

    “The Sunday Times understands that the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), the profession’s watchdog which can ban teachers from classrooms, is working on possible disciplinary cases against current and former staff members at schools in Birmingham, which were the focus of the Trojan Horse scandal, which saw efforts by hardline Islamists to take control of state schools.

    “The NCTL is understood to be examining 30 cases with an expectation that many more will follow.

    “’The NCTL is currently looking at about 30 teachers, but in total there are about 100 who will be targeted,’ said an informed source.”
