    This morning the BBC is most anxious to inform us that another football coaching chap at the FA is in big trouble for addressing that famous (for complaining) woman player in…. wait for it…

    “a fake Caribbean accent”

    Does this mean Lenny Henry could soon be in hot water ?

    You have to smile, this comes on a morning when our Naga Munchetty whilst assuming a fake smile introduces an item on academic research into regional English accents with the lying declaration: “It’s very important to preserve our accents and where we come from”

    If I could believe for one moment that the BBC was sincere about that statement, then, well, I’d be just a little happier about the Licence Fee.

    You might say that the lefties were after another scalp – but I guess that would be cultural appropriation or some such.

      £80k plus for a bad joke and a dodgy accent? This ‘bullying’ sounds fantastic to me.

    Phew! Is it just me or did the BBC manage to pack more anti-everything into two and one quarter hours of the TODAY Programme today than they usually do?

    This sudden BBC propagandising over pollution is very interesting. No clear thinking or critical analysis from the BBC. They have announced that it is all due to ‘diesel fuel’ and ‘Britain is worse than other European countries’ in this respect. One quick question that the BBC could and should have answered on air and on air quality is the amount of diesel used in proportion to road miles travelled in European countries in relation to the population of each country.

    But no …

    Just FakeNews/FalseNews on the BBC.

    RE: Lammy.

    Do grime artists – so popular in the black community – ever talk about working hard at school?


    You can’t get into Oxbridge unless you work hard at school.

    An item on the BBC News channel scrolling headline this morning:

    “But avoid mentioning President Trump.” Why was that last bit necessary? They are desperate to insinuate President Trump is the root of evil aren’t they? If The Donald wasn’t mentioned, BBC News needn’t have mentioned him either.


    • Guest Who says:

      The ‘political climate’ pretty much everywhere has been made toxic by ideological media having year long hissy fits because the plebs engaged democratically against their wishes.

      And the paucity of statesmanship worldwide is giving these elitist juveniles free rein.

      Frankly a pantomime dame in a sequinned red cowboy hat being treated seriously pretty much sums it up.


    • Beeb Brother says:

      At 5.10am on the World Service they had a pathetic hit piece about Richard Spencer, Trump and Charlottesville. Are we supposed to believe the Fourth Reich is imminent on the basis of a single white nationalist? It’s so pathetic how the MSM drag out Richard Spencer over and over.


      • Lefty Wright says:

        Beeb Bro
        Every dictator needs to be able to say to the proles “Behave yourself or the Bogeyman will get you” Up until now it has worked but perhaps the sleeping dog has at last opened one eye.


    • Beeb Brother says:

      Do they ever think that it is the MSM which is causing so much hatred and division?

      “Across the Middle East, basic security, basic order has broken down. We see too many Governments muzzling journalists, quashing decent and censoring the flow of information. …” {youtube – Watch President Obama deliver his final speech at United Nations – 20 Sep 2016}

      – Can someone please time the gaps in Obama’s speech to determine if it’s 50% empty space?
      – And everyone left the UN feeling good in 2016 ….

      “We see liberal societies express opposition when women choose to cover themselves.” – President Obama

      – See what Obama did there, women ‘choose’ and are ‘not forced’. Which culture or country are we talking about? A Muslim women in USA or a Muslim women in Iran or Saudi Arabia. A Muslim women in Bradford, UK?


      • G says:

        I like that one!!! – in the Middle East, “…….too many Governments “muzzling” journalists….”. If changed slightly to ‘muzzifying’, it could apply more generally to what the muzzies get up to whilst fulfilling their cults requirement?


    • Up2snuff says:

      Lucy, is not the current political climate in the USA a product of all the past governance?

      Just running back in time we have:
      Barak Obama – a Democrat of BAME origin
      George W Bush – a Republican, Caucasian
      Bill Clinton – a Caucasian Democrat
      George Bush – a Caucasian Republican
      Ronald Reagan – a Caucasian Republican but former Trade Union official.

      That covers half a lifetime. The immediate Former President (incorrectly refered to as Mr by the BBC this morning) Obama, of all his predecessors, could and should have solved any problems surrounding racial and other social issues in eight years in Office. But he did not. Should he not be blamed rather than President Trump, in office, post-Inauguration, for just nine months?

      BBC: 9 months = 8 years?

      The BBC’s ‘equivalence’ appears a bit wonky there!

    R5 now
    Quite offensive that Emma Barnett EB & #Biased BBC give wall2wall coverage of TV/mediaLand abuse
    & disproportionately close to zeo to grooming gangs
    All victims matter whether of celeb/media, family or grooming gangs
    However the generally abuse grooming gang victims suffered seems to a more extreme end than what happened in TV land

    25 mins into the prog we are still on the Ozzy journo who had an experience with the creepy old man Rupert of GQ when he said he like d to F her

    ..hang on now under pressure from EB this journo now says she had a rape experience in Australia
    .. which she doesn’t wish to prosecute.

    The bbc has jumped so many sharks now it could keep China in soup until the end of days


  7. StewGreen says:

    I woke up this morning to the BBC telling me
    “New research shows that 9million people/yr die from air pollution”
    Fortunately this research comes from Richard Fuller *
    who came on to explain that
    “92% of those deaths happen in poor and developing countries”
    * You see Fuller’s research is directed towards genuine victims rather than selling Electric cars or political campaigns in London

    I note later that the headline was changed “pollution contributes to 50,000 deaths in the UK”
    which is incorrect since pollution contributes to almost all natural deaths (ie reduces a few days of all our lives)

    Now BBC has (different research ?) now twisted the story to Pollution linked to one in six deaths …#NarrativeBuilding

    By the way their own chart does not show 1 in 6 for the UK, it shows 1 in 12 with the UK being well down the list of risk countries

    For those of you not lucky enough to see Question Time last night, you missed the fragrant Paula from Dunstable…

    Watching it back it was interesting to note that Dimbleby specifically picked him out. He had been doing the rounds on Twitter yesterday, so obviously a plant and obviously an agenda to push. He seems to think that he is some sort of beacon as he worked as a 787 instructor for Monarch, but look what happened to them..

    Check out his Twitter feed



    • Beeb Brother says:

      It’s odd how often a randomly selected person from their bespoke audience spouts their narrative perfectly.

      They should film it live and have the audience members enter a lottery to get a spot, ensuring it is a totally random composition. Now that really would be free, fair and impartial.

    Yorkshire Post on 16 years that taxidrivers facilitated abuse and loophole that they could escape checks by “gaming the system” : registering their minicab licence in the weakest rule area :
    “Taxi companies could face tougher licensing rules in bid to tackle sex abuse.”
    · “TAXI companies could face tougher licensing regimes in an effort to tackle child sexual exploitation in places like Rotherham, a transport minister has said ”


    • MarkyMark says:

      All roads lead to Rotherham?


      • StewGreen says:

        “All roads lead to Rotherham”
        Obviously not as far as BBC is concerned Even their film : 3(out of 5,000)Girls was about Rochdale.
        BBC seem to be unable to find their way to Rotherham although they can get to TVland, Grenfell and Calais Refugee Camp at the drop of a hat.
        Bet 5Live didn’t find time to cover the taxi stories.


  11. MarkyMark says:

    Segregation continues unabated … we must share toilets … but not buses … 100 Women: The pink bus designed to protect women from harassment {bbc.co.uk 19oct2017}
    Authorities in one city in Turkey have put pink women-only buses in service, designed to protect female passengers from harassment. Some residents of Malatya have welcomed the buses but others aren’t so sure.

    – Nothing to do with culture?


    • StewGreen says:

      It’s tradition : in the Dolmush you’d sometimes rearrange the whole lot of passengers so that a woman is not sitting next to an unrelated man. Though last time I lived in Mersin that didn’t happen in the city.


      • Grant says:


        Mersin ? What were you doing there ? Maybe I asked you before and forgot.


        • StewGreen says:

          Be about 2011 I’d been in Eastern Europe and then Georgia so headed down for winter sun .
          Often I bump into weird local jobs
          But I don’t need to work for Mickey Mouse English schools so I was mostly doing my own online stuff and then helping locals with advice etc .
          I had contacts at the university .. I stayed with ethnic-Syrians Turks, there lots of Proper Syrian refugees in town but didn’t have much contact.
          – I exited to Northern Cyprus when my visa time was up.


    • Dystopian says:

      Why aren’t the BBC challenging the choice of pink as creating stereotypes?


  12. StewGreen says:

    Weird article in Times
    fishy from the start
    “Arena bombing victim’s brother attacked online by the far right”
    But the ending tells us that this man Dan Hett brother of the Coronation Street and a PR expert himself is doing a TEDx talk and the first batch has sold out !
    Title : “Extremism Media and Technology

    In other words this report was probably written by Hett.
    “Mr Hett was targeted after speaking out against plans by Tommy Robinson to stage a book launch in Manchester NEXT month.
    Funny explanation cos not only will he have planned his talk title months ago back on Aug5:Hett tweeted
    … Seems he’s the one spouting hate.


    • StewGreen says:

      Hett then added
      ” consider this an official condemnation in the strongest possible terms. in hosting this man, you do not stand united with us.”

      So its totally false for him to now complain the friction only came recently after he some about a TR forthcoming book launch next month.
      Hett looks like a professional agitator.


    • StewGreen says:

      Projection is a LibMob characteristic
      Whilst he shouts “hater” at other people
      in 2015 Dan Hett was smiling at the thought of Katie Hopkins being killed.


  13. StewGreen says:

    They told us a teacher had hacked the class search histories after porn appeared during class.
    Nope the school had hired experts who’d cast doubt on that claim, and had then covered up that evidence.
    So now teacher has son £33K compensation
