I’m on Talk Radio tomorrow morning just after 9am chatting to Paul Ross about this item.

People who only watch BBC shows on catchup will be legally required to have a TV licence from 1 September, when new legislation to close the so-called “iPlayer loophole” comes into force. Though the vast majority of households own a TV licence, those without one who only watch catch-up content and not live broadcasts were technically exempt from paying the £145 a year charge. The government had promised to close the loophole, which already costs the BBCabout £150m a year and is likely to increase, during negotiations last summer that also saw the corporation agree to shoulder the £750m burden of free licence fees for the over-75s.

Wonder what your thoughts are? I can understand why the BBC want to close the loophole on a commercial basis and that seems fair to me. But the actual License Tax is the problem. It MAY or MAY NOT be seen as good value but it is not a choice. What say you?


BBC in positively gushing mode this morning. Why?

About 6,500 migrants have been rescued off Libya, the Italian coastguard says, in one of the biggest operations of its kind to date. Some 40 co-ordinated rescue missions took place about 20km (12 miles) off the Libyan town of Sabratha, it added. Video footage shows migrants, said to be from Eritrea and Somalia, cheering and some swimming to rescue vessels, while others carried babies aboard.

How delightful and also how considerate of the BBC not to bother pointing out that Somalis and Eritreans have been busy adding NOTHING to European economies since those boats started coming. Apart from casual stabbings etc.

Liddle known facts




You may have noticed the BBC’s reluctance to bring to your attention the fact that Brexit hasn’t resulted in instant armageddon as promised by the Remain campaign.  Whilst the PMI figures were taken by the BBC as definitive proof that the economy post-referendum is in a nosedive any news that confounds the Remain alarmist’s claims is not reported or is downplayed…the BBC telling us that in such cases it is actually far too early to make sensible judgements on the effect of the referendum.

Similarly the BBC is all too eager to label all Leave voters as racists who instantly grabbed their KKK uniforms that had been gathering dust in the wardrobe ever-ready for such an occasion and went-a-lynching.

Oddly the BBC took little to no interest in the death threats, abuse and intimidation from Remain voters towards Leavers.

Similarly of course they take no interest in the Muslim racism and misogyny that is going on in France whilst proclaiming themselves appalled by the Burkini ban…the Spectator reveals a few home truths from abroad…

I have a fund of similar stories from female friends in France. There’s the one who was insulted by two women in headscarves while out jogging because she had on a pair of shorts; the friend who no longer travels on the Paris metro after a certain hour because, as a Muslim, she’s fed up with being insulted by men of her religion because she dares to wear a skirt and blouse; and the one who sold her baby’s car seat through an ad in the local paper. The man met her asking price but refused to shake the hand of a woman.

Then there are the cases outside my immediate milieu. On the first day of Ramadan this year a Muslim waitress in a Nice bar was assaulted by two men. ‘Shame on you for serving alcohol during Ramadan,’ one of them screamed, as he attacked her. ‘If I were God, I would have you hanged.’ Last year in Reims a young woman sunbathing in a public park was set upon by a gang of teenage girls. They objected to her bikini, reported the newspapers, although the town’s authorities insisted there was no ‘religious’ aspect to the attack. Few believed them.

That’s because such incidents are becoming more common across France.

‘We’re seeing the emergence of a police of mores who are principally targeting young women on the issue of modesty.’

This important point is blithely ignored by naive liberal writers, particularly those in Britain, who have little understanding of the extent of extremism in France.

The BBC naturally ignores the rape epidemic in Norway and Sweden and disgracefully tried to dismiss the attacks in Cologne by disingenuously claiming they were by ‘Germans’…and even claiming the poor, naive immigrants [Now that the BBC couldn’t ignore the evidence] were tricked into acting this way by the devious Far-Right.

Just what is wrong with the BBC that they not only refuse to report these events but go out of their way when forced to report them to explain them away or blame them on Western society rather than place the blame where it firmly belongs?

Rod Liddle in the Sunday Times relates a tale that must be all too familiar…the BBC was complaining that news of the alleged unfolding Brexit disaster has been kept off the airwaves and out of the Press by the ‘silly season’.  Strangely I can’t say I’ve noticed…the Press has been full of stories about Brexit and the ‘good news’.  The only organisations that haven’t been reporting on Brexit in full has been the BBC as Liddle pointed out on R4’s Media show [6 mins 30]…only to be cut off as the presenter told him ‘I can’t really go into Brexit at the moment.’   Hmmm…how odd.  One moment complaining about the lack of Brexit news, the next refusing to discuss Brexit ‘good news’.

How can the BBC complain about too much Olympic coverage when it itself saturated us with such news [Was it to distract us from the Brexit ‘good news’?] and the same BBC that sent 455 staff to work at Rio?  The BBC that covered the hockey final not on one TV channel but two…and of course on the radio as well.

Half the news all the time.  That’s what we pay for.

And on the subject of paying for the BBC and all that…the iPlayer…just why will the BBC not introduce a signing-in format to access the iPlayer?  You have to do so to access C4 and if you have an ad blocker they don’t let you watch until you switch it off.  Any chance that the BBC doesn’t want to put its claim that it is the people’s choice to the test?  If we had to subscribe just how many people really would?  Possibly everyone would do so…but it seems the BBC aren’t brave enough to put their own self-aggrandisement to the test.

I was amused to hear the BBC trying to attack the commercial companies as it talked about obesity….apparently the commercial companies should be made to stop advertising ‘junk food’ [whatever that is]…any thought that the BBC might just be trying to undermine their rivals’ sources of income whilst the publicly funded BBC sails merrily on whilst also massively encroaching on the commercial sector’s territory backed by that public funding?

Anjem who?


When the Law finally caught up with Anjem Choudary and after a decade of giving him prime-time platforms to spout his rhetoric with Mark Easton comparing him to Ghandi, Mandela and Churchill the BBC have decided that….

‘It wasn’t a game. The evidence now shows that Anjem Choudary is one of the most dangerous men in Britain. Not a bomb-maker. Not a facilitator. But an ideologue, a thinker, who encouraged others not to stop and think for themselves before they turned to violence to implement their shared worldview.’

Despite being constantly criticised for giving him airtime they continued to do so with a wilful disregard for the evidence….but then they have always supported the terrorists, their mouthpieces and other radicalisers, from the IRA to Hamas, to groups like the MCB, Cage and MPACUK…all of which still get airtime on the BBC.

Here’s an example of why MPACUK’s minions should also be in a cell….not given prominence, credibility and authority by the BBC…this page has of course vanished from MPACUK’s website but it’s still around……

The Obligation of Jihad

jihad“Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) hath Allah promised good. But those who strive and fight hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,” Quran Chapter 4: The Women, verse 95.

A high rank, forgiveness and mercy are gifted from our beloved for those who are the Mujahideen. Those that struggle and strive to protect the religion, that protect the honour of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), that protect our brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity are gifted with these amazing favours!

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,He who dies without having fought in the way of Allah or without having felt it to be his duty, will die having a trait of hypocrisy”

Pretty clear that this is urging British Muslims to go and fight Jihad physically.

The BBC seem to have completely forgotten that they were one of the prime facilitators for Choudary’s career as radical mouthpiece and terrorist recruiter and oddly make no mention of that fact in their latest piece on him which celebrates the fact he has been ‘silenced’…..

How Anjem Choudary’s mouth was finally shut

For 20 years Anjem Choudary stood on street corners, in shopping precincts, outside mosques, embassies and police stations and used his megaphone to drive a wedge between Muslims and the rest of Britain. Now he has been convicted of inviting others to support the Islamic State militant group.

When the guilty verdict came, he said nothing.

Anjem Choudary’s mouth had finally shut.

No thanks to the BBC…and note Choudary has been radicalising people for 20 years…hmmm…long before the Iraq war then?

Was amused to see the Authorities will be removing ‘dangerous’ books that lead to radical thoughts from prisons….will that then include the Koran?

The Islamist Baroness Warsi was also shown up for the hypocrite and opportunist she really is.  She is a long term adversary of the anti-terrorist Prevent programme and not long ago was agitating for the government to engage with Msulim groups that were considered ‘beyond the pale’…presumably those such as Cage, MPACUK and the MCB.  She suggested that by not engaging with such groups the government was disengaged with the Muslim community….she was saying that these groups represent the Muslim community then?

Irony of ironies Warsi then attacked the BBC for giving Choudary airtime….

Criticising the BBC, Baroness Warsi, the former minister for faith and communities, said extremists should not be given platforms to express their damaging views.

Pity the BBC gives her so much airtime to peddle her own Islamist propaganda.

The reason that Choudary couldn’t be locked up before was because he was preaching the Koran and basic Islamic law.  Now when the government ministers tell us he was peddling a poisonous ideology you have to ask just what ideology was that then and if it is indeed ‘Islam’ what will you do about it?

Tom Holland: We must not deny the religious roots of Islamic State

Salafism today is probably the fastest-growing Islamic movement in the world. The interpretation that Isis applies to Muslim scripture may be exceptional for its savagery – but not for its literalism. Islamic State, in its conceit that it has trampled down the weeds and briars of tradition and penetrated to the truth of God’s dictates, is recognisably Salafist. When Islamic State fighters smash the statues of pagan gods, they are following the example of the Prophet; when they proclaim themselves the shock troops of a would-be global empire, they are following the example of the warriors of the original caliphate; when they execute enemy combatants, and impose discriminatory taxes on Christians, and take the women of defeated opponents as slaves, they are doing nothing that the first Muslims did not glory in.

Such behaviour is certainly not synonymous with Islam; but if not Islamic, then it is hard to know what else it is.

The French have gone for window dressing and banned the Burkini in places when the real problem is far more fundamental and which such petty headline grabbing policies do nothing to address because politicians are afraid to speak the truth…that Europe is being Islamised and that without deliberate action to prevent that it is inevitable that Muslims will rule over Europe in the very near future.

The BBC and its ilk refuse to address that fact and indeed do all they can to play it down and instead of revealing the truth about what Islam really means continue to sell us a false narrative of a religion of peace, tolerance and interfaith dialogue.

The reality is that Islam is not a pleasant ideology, it is backward, violent (even Tariq Ramadan admits it is so) and oppressive and has been the ‘end of history’ for so many of the countries that it has taken root in.  If Europe becomes Islamised where does that leave the liberal progression?  Who in the world will stand up for all those values the BBC likes to boast it stands for and yet ironically also backs the most brutal of religions which is in direct opposition to every value liberals profess to hold?

Western values need defending, at the point of a bayonet if necessary, as they have been for centuries as we stopped Napoleon, the Kaiser, Hitler and the Communists.  The BBC seems to think that to apply a little muscular liberalism goes against the whole ethos of liberalism….the result of such a weak policy will be no liberalism at all.

Syria shows what standing back patting oneself on the back as Obama did for his ‘considered’, diplomatic approach to the disaster, results in….an unfolding, massive bloody disaster that could have been averted with quick and powerful early intervention.

Europe will eventually also turn into a warzone.  It is inevitable.  It’s here already.  People just refuse to see it…and as I’ve said before the war is not just one of bullets and bombs….it is at heart an ideological war and the intended end result is the Black flag of Islam flying over the ruling houses of Europe….

There is a war being fought and it’s not just with guns, bullets and bombs.  The Media, far from being prejudiced against Muslims, is the weapon of choice for those who seek to make Islam the dominant religion and political force in Britain, and the BBC is at the forefront of the charge.  And, this is the important thing to note, those who are ‘fighting’ this media war are not the obvious ‘radicals’ like Anjem Choudray, they come dressed in western suits and talk of reform and tolerance but always blame Muslim ‘anger’ on British society, on that phantom menace ‘Islamophobia’.  Of course what is even more frightening is that these men and women have not just managed to position themselves as authorities on questions of Islam, its place in Western Society and ‘radicalisation’, as Media spokesmen of choice but have also inveigled their way into the heart of Government advising it on matters of religion and radicalisation.  Biased BBC

Andrew Gilligan gives us an example of how a Muslim group uses the media to attack the government and its anti-terror laws…

Muslim extremists’ ‘campaign of lies’ to undermine the government’s fight against terror

An organised campaign to undermine Britain’s fight against terrorism can be revealed today.

Islamist activists linked to Cage, a group known to sympathise with terrorists, are using coordinated leaks to mainstream news organisations, including the BBC, to spread fear and confusion in Muslim communities about the Government’s anti-terror policy, Prevent.

As the BBC now admits it is the ideologues, the propagandists, the rabble rousers who are the real danger…

‘It wasn’t a game. The evidence now shows that Anjem Choudary is one of the most dangerous men in Britain. Not a bomb-maker. Not a facilitator. But an ideologue, a thinker, who encouraged others not to stop and think for themselves before they turned to violence to implement their shared worldview.’

Shame the BBC still gives so much time to so many of these ideologues and snake-oil salesmen and women.





I suppose it is just way too tempting for the BBC. They INSTANTLY pile on this report, with all kinds of race hustlers on the 10 news  -including some very chip on their shoulder Notting Hill “Carnival” types queuing up to inform us that Black and Etnic Minoritiess are …the most discriminated people ever in the history of the universe.

Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a review into how ethnic minorities and white working class people are treated by public services such as the NHS, schools, police and the courts. The audit is aimed at highlighting racial and socio-economic disparities and showing how outcomes differ due to background, class, gender and income. The prime minister said the findings would “shine a light on injustices”. A recent report found racial inequality remained “entrenched” in Britain.

I was hoping May would order an inquiry to find out why so much crime in London is committed by Black people but thus far, nothing.


A B-BBC reader notes…

“Following on from your latest post I decided to check out the Newsround website. Clicking on the ‘most popular’ section I found every one of the top 5 articles relates to Muslims. Every single one.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/popular/read This is worrying. Either children are taking a very active interest in all things Muslim or the bbc are manipulating the ‘most read’ section to suit their agenda.

Scary stuff either way.”



Here’s a great guest post by a Biased BBC regular. I think it illuminates the essential point that the BBC’s bias is dangerous. Give this a read, well worth your time.
“The BBC’s contemporary battle for hearts, minds and souls extends far beyond the purile petulance of its news outlets. Such is the BBC’s eagerness to produce the next generation of politically correct, self-loathing social justice dhimmis that they are now indoctrinating school children via the BBC Bitesize guide to National Curriculum.
Al-Beeb’s sinister agenda is evident in Key Stage 3 resources, such as “The Islamic World in the Middle Ages”. The licence fee is helping fund a programme of propaganda that is telling children as young as 11 that Allah really is the greatest. Indeed, you will notice that they openly refer to the “Prophet Muhammad”. Does that mean that the BBC officially believes that Mo WAS a prophet of God?

Our children are told that Muslims were going to beauty parlours, using deodorants and drinking from glasses, at a time when the English were telling children not to pick their nose over their food, spit on the table, or throw uneaten food onto the floor (hereand the city of Cordoba in Spain (omitting the fact that Muslims had invaded and conquered Spain) was a city of over half a million inhabitants with street lighting and running water while, at the same time 10,000 Londoners lived in timber-framed houses and used the river as their sewer (here).
