Let’s play an online biased Far Left BBC game .
I’ll start . If a lefty is on the BBC they won’t be introduced . They are ‘ accepted ‘ . If some one of the Right is ( rarely ) put on the airwaves they are introduced as being ‘ from a right wing think tank ‘ or similar .
There should be a prize for spotting this if you still take the BBC – but this is a non profit site – so it’s just for fun …
Isn’t it odd. All those Remainer types who for over 3 years loved to quote full European Law, Rules and Regulations about trade deals and what can and cannot be done and were experts on Parliamentary procedures etc.
They called us Leavers, thick, racist, lower class idiots,
Yet, now it seems, its those upper class, liberal elite, highly educated Remainers who seem unable to work out if they can talk to their window cleaner , go to the shop, see a friend from outside the household or travel across borders etc.
Yet we were told constantly for years by the BBC and MSM that those were the clever ones who knew what they were voting for and we didn’t !!!!!!!!
The BBC finally reports on Obama’s criminal activities, albeit nowhere on the home page. They describe it as a ‘spat.’ A more accurate word would be treason. And of course they think Obama was perfectly justified!
It is all related as casually as one might describe a mild gust of wind during sunshine. None of the emotional appeals turned up to eleven as when one of their side has been wronged.
Imagine for one moment if they found out Bush had used the FBI to spy on Obama to try and bring him down. Boy could they find some dirt on him if they devoted 1% of the energies they have spent on Trump. It would be the story of the the millennium leading every bulletin. As their man was in the wrong you would not even know anything happened!
you can only conclude that there is an international conspiracy by Western Governments to ignore any wishes, thoughts or legitimate concerns of their populations. This is now the unstoppable power of the UN, Soros and backing by the communist regime in China. It will never be checked and stopped by voters thinking that they have a say. Not only that, Governments must recognise that the cycle of so-called, “Democratic voting” is too far behind any moves they can make with impunity.
Revolution is the only answer. Lamp-posts come to mind immediately.
They thought of that, lamp posts haven’t had crossbars for years!
UK American correspondents seem very quiet just now?
The vile pair on Sly News of Cordelia Lynch and Amanda Walker usually frothing at the mouth about today’s perceived Democrat injustice. Both massive knicker-wetting sycophants of Adam Schiff.
Soapy Sopel and the fat bloke that looks like Mr Potato Head at the BBC…..O’Donaghue……very quiet.
Looks like trouble for Obama, Pelosi, Biden, Schiff.
Can’t understand why these cheerleaders not getting their defensive tweets in now……
If I’m hearing it correctly, in a few weeks time anyone flying in will have to do 2 weeks quarantine.
Except if you come from France.
So then, an Iranian (for example) has a choice. Either fly to the UK and undergo 2 weeks of quarantine before you can go about your business or fly via Paris and be able to go about your business immediately.
Not that anyone will obey the 2 weeks quarantine and nobody will be checking upon them anyway.
I’ve just read in the DT that the total number of intensive care doctors and nurses who have died with coronavirus is….zero.
The number of nhs workers in total to have died is in line with the rest of us.
What is it today, shine a light for Florence Nightingale (named after our new shed collection) or is it clap for the nhs or a 2 minute silence for something or other….im losing track.
I know it was ‘burn a tyre for Greta day’ yesterday.
Maybe an entrepreneur could bring out a virtue signallers calender with all the instructions of when to clap etc.
It also includes Ireland – so if you are flying into the UK from anywhere in the globe book your flight to CDG or ORK and then hop over on the EasyJet – no quarantine .
I’m due to fly out of the UK twice in July – within the 14 days so I don’t know how I will be treated .
The 14 day quarantine might have made scientific sense from February to now and beyond but long hauls are coming into the UK every hour during daylight – from all over the globe ….and nothing has been done ‘because of scientific advice “ which doesn’t include common sense .
They had to make sure this lot arrived first (courtesy of the efforts of Labour Peer Alf Dubs).
Lord Dubs arrived here on a Kindertransport train. British generosity and decency meant his life was saved, and he grew up to be a Labour politician who is inflicting his multiracial, multicultural ethnic cleansing policies upon us.
He is living proof of the old saying, “No good turn goes unpunished.”
It’s shine a light for nurse’s day of course!
And that was a serious suggestion this morning from the BBC!
Did anybody hear on our, “Most Trusted (Marxist) Broadcaster” that since the chinese virus infected the World, China has become more aggressive with its neighbours and in the South China Sea? No, you wouldn’t because that would be “News” from within the BBC’s most favoured political system – Communism. They would not want you hearing anything damaging to the Chinese regime, as is also their favoured religion, islam.
I heard yesterday that even the Indians are involved in shoot outs with the Chinese army on their mutual border. Apparently tension has always existed but not to the extent of exchanging live rounds. Meanwhile in Australia, our friendly Chinese Communist Party are threatening to put massive tariffs on Barley imports, a large part of the Aus. economy unless the Aussies shut up and stop complaining about their virus. And so the incursions by the Chinese go on, unchecked. Bless him, DJ Trump esq. has their measure and the US is sending more vessels into the China Sea to ensure safe passage. All around the rim of the South China Sea, there’s looming military problems with China and when the eventual confrontation between the US and China occurs, all other Governments will have to make the choice: Who to back, support and join with? In my view, that decision will be needed shortly.
With all the bad news about, here’s an item which will lift your spirits:
“The number of TV licences fell by 82,000 in the last five months, taking it to its lowest number since 2014/15.2
“According to reports, the BBC had hoped that its coverage of the coronavirus crisis would reinforce its status as an essential public service. However, the Corporation has attracted Government criticism after several recent examples of political bias and inaccuracy in its news reporting. Viewers are also deeply disappointed at the dismal selection and quality of the BBC’s non-news offering.
As things currently stand, the BBC expects to lose £125 million in TV licence receipts by the end of this year.”
The BBC’s views?
“”Whilst the number of licences in force has been around 25 million for the past ten years, it has risen in recent years but of course there will always be fluctuation and March’s figures will include the fact that some people have found it more difficult to pay during lockdown. Audiences are coming to the BBC in their millions as we have seen during recent weeks with record audiences for iPlayer.””
‘Head in sand’ anyone?
One of those coincidences I’m sure, but this is precisely the same mind-set that drives the Guardian to believe its own absurd readership figures. It can’t dispute the distribution sales in free fall so now majors on ‘on-line readers worldwide’ – a nicely ambiguous and unquantifiable number.
Even an organisation so deeply impressed with its own standards as the BBC can’t seem to see that their direct association with the media’s Marie Celeste is not much of a benefit.
Mind you, sawing away at the branch you’re sitting on can only be a good thing for the rest of us.
This is why i get so worked up at the moment with all this crap !!
Where does anyone point out who EXACTLY these Alternative Sage members are ? I think its vitally important for anyone to know , when quoting these people , that they are all FAR LEFT, anti government mouth pieces who have ZERO interest in our well being, but 100% interest in political point scoring.
When its a group to the Right, they are always introduced as far Right, Far Right leaning etc, but not here. Oh no.
And yet again, in the liberal bubble world these scientists are RIGHT and the Government ones WRONG.
They are untouchable and simply cannot be questioned. Their word is taken as fact and lapped up by the BBC etc.
Open All Hours last night :
Ronnie Barker reading a newspaper and says “the extreme left” “why is it always the extreme left, they sound like the leftovers at a party that no one wants..”
Jon in his capacity as BBC reporter, must not have heard the news about Obama !! Just sticking with his usual …
Since it’s now over the page, I will repeat cos it could be really big
BBC tweet and headline
“Man charged after BBC reporter suffers *racist* abuse” (in Leicester)
.. Yet non of the charges imply racism or hate crime
and the BBC story offers no evidence.
I reckon that could be some form of sub judice
(I put a link to his video on the previous page)
Hugh is appalled
yet the only evidence is Sima’s words in quotation mark in the BBC story “racist abuse”
I note all other media use the words “alleged racist abuse”
The defence leaping between MSM Sir. Gals and the ladies from the cubicle gardens is often notable for who is showered with support and who might not get mentioned at all.
While we are at it can we stop talking about high salaries being ‘earned’?
Digging a ditch with a shovel every penny is ‘earned’, reading an auto-cue, not so much.
Racial charge added in Leicester ?
the BBC has edited the page (edits screenshot
BEFORE “has been charged with threatening and abusive behaviour causing distress.”
AFTER “pleaded not guilty to causing *racially aggravated* alarm or distress.”
The BBC started with version 0
stealth edit 1 added his name this morning
edit 2 changed the charges at lunchtime
That’s a bit strange, my guess is BBC lawyers pressured police to change charges.
The police website still has the old charges on..noting about “racially aggravated”
Something for the BBC to think about:
If I am reading this correctly then the BBC has to consider if it is right for them to constantly pander towards other parties as they usually do. Now is not the time for point scoring but Labour are still at it and so are the SNP. It has to stop
Her Majesty’s democratically elected government puts emergency measures in place in exceptional national and international circumstances. Some people agree, some disagree with the measures.
Public service broadcaster allows those who are not members of the UK government to make what look like formal and direct ‘addresses to the nation’ on the TV/radio – as opposed to in parliament or via normal interviews – criticising HMG’s emergency measures.
At best these ‘addresses’ are party political broadcasts made at a time when no election is taking place. Were the bBC paid, or did they provide their services for free? We look forward to the leaders of all political parties ‘addressing the nation’ on the bBC during peak times.
Nice spot by the Daily Mail, as, with no sense of irony, Fiona Bruce describes bus drivers, care workers, and security guards as low-skilled.
They are in fact the highest CV19 risk occupations.
Much higher than our brave NHS heroes.
But low-skill Fiona didn’t mention that. Naturally.
An acquaintance was admitted to hospital for sepsis. He was tested negative for CV19. But a week later, still in hospital, he had a heart attack and died. He was re-tested for CV19 and tested positive. He picked it up when under the care of the NHS.
It has been suggested that the NHS and Public Health England are very reluctant to release statistics of Covid deaths in hospital of patients who tested negative on initial entry. Nothing from ONS on this. We can guess why.
Perish the thought that our NHS heroes are creating their own work by infecting CV19-free patients through poor procedures, while their own death rate, contrary to all the PPE indignation, is simply at the same level as the rest of us.
Maybe we should ‘clap for patients’ on Thursday.
Sluff sorry to hear such bad news . The NHS has A long Track record of infecting inmates with diseases . Remember the MRSA debacle ?
So whilst all those ever so important and precious NHS heroes are practicing their dance moves some one on minimum wage is pretending to clean knowing that it will be supervised by someone pretending to check .
I fear that this fear is driving a lot of people to avoid the NHS and suffering at home watching the heroes do dancing , clapping and moaning about PPE.
Yes Fed, after the MRSA scandal it was noticeable how quickly patients were released from care to recover at home after treatment – and still happens today. At the height of the outbreak my old Dad was taken in with a chest infection, and after a couple of days was put into an isolation ward, because had ‘caught’ ‘got’ ‘had’ MRSA so we had to gown up when visiting him.
I think apart from Corona there is also the danger of contracting sepsis – which was my biggest fear when having a hip replacement 4 years ago.
I see the pretender Queen of Scotland, Sturgeon is determined to take the moral high ground and advance her grab for ultimate power in Scotland by going against anything the UK Government proposes re the virus and getting back to work.
I therefore propose that the UK Government agree and proceed without Scotland but also legislates that the Scottish National Assembly take over total responsibility for paying every Scot off work, paying their mortages, paying their council tax, paying their energy bills, paying for local authority staff including teachers and health professionals, police, sanitation workers etc. etc
The cash could initially be provided (as now) by the UK Government but would be drawn back by reducing subsidies to Scotland until paid back in full.
Sounds fair to me, everyone gets what they want!
As too in Wales, digg. Another political nonentity with no mandate making up rules to suit point-scoring as opposed to any benefit for the public.
In fact in Wales it seems to have gone a step further with a ‘Senior Police Officer’ boasting about upholding the law and ensuring the English do not cross into Welsh territory.
Just out of interest, what law might that be? UK Law or some specific Welsh one yet to enter the statute books?
Stop the ‘Barnett Formula’ immediately I say.
No problem for Sturgeon to fund this. All that lovely North Sea oil at $20 a barrel should pay for it.
The Scots Nazis will never face the fact that their cunning plan for independence was predicated on oil trading at about $100 a barrel. If the Scots had been so unwise as to vote for “independence” in 2014 it would have turned into another Darien scheme within a couple of years.
It was only the advent of North Sea oil in the 1970s which gave the SNP its boost, prior to that they were, rightly, seen as a splinter group of cranks. With oil at $20, and due to run out in the not too distant future, I sincerely hope that Scottish national socialism will follow down the plug hole of history.
Surely it wouldn’t be ethical for an SNP Scotland to sell oil whatever the price?
(It’s not a fossil fuel, it’s condensed sunshine!).
Rob – I recall the average value was about $130 a barrel to keep the Scottish welfare operating at the English subsidised level .
There never seems to be any serious discussion about the economics of Scottish nationalism now .
As an Englishman i could care less either way – although the prospect of having a commons without the SNP is hugely attractive .
Back to the oil – even in peacetime – the cost of oil was staying down due to shale extraction as much as demand –
Spending shed loads to get it out of the North Sea was looking rather out of fashion – so what Scotland would fund itself on one can guess. The Americans would be less that impressed if their bases were moved out so exports would be punished . And haven’t even mentioned what the EU would want from Scotland other than all their fish ….
Take oil out of the equation and that leaves whisky. Not really a lot to base an economy on, is it?
And that’s Scotch whisky, by the way, not Scottish whisky – it is the whisky of the Scotch, just as Irish whiskey is the whiskey of the Irish.
Just to settle that renowned bit of paranoia.
Beltane – obviously there is only one Irish Whiskey – that being Jameson’s …..
….. as I was writing I remembered that President Trump uses tariffs as a weapon against the EU / Chinese and any other decent target – scotch whisky restrictions would encourage American competition and – I think – cost a lot of jobs .
But I favour a wholly independent Scotland – different time zone – border – entry control – the works –
– it’s academic anyway but an easy distraction judging by the way President Crankie is going on .
TIME FOR THE NEW THREAD
You have forgotten shortbread.
BBC getting hysterical about Trumps response to a question from an Asian Lady journalist that advised her to redirect her complaint to China.
Then an hour later we hear that China has blocked imports of Australian red meat because Australia requested an investigation into the way China handled the outbreak.
I think this is exactly what Trump was referring to. The Chinese Authorities are trying to escape scrutiny by using bullying, intimidating threats.
I am just glad that there is at least one Western leader with the balls to take China on.
Not forgetting Barley.
China is sure targeting Australia at present. The time will come when the West will have to stand up and be counted to cut the legs off the CCP collectively. Wonder what Sopel et al will have to say about DJT when he leads the charge?
A bit more ‘Real News’ for those interested.
We learn that China has cheated and bribed its way onto important sub-divisions of UN like the WHO (amongst others) but, as I reported here some weeks ago that’s part of a united front with Soros. So who and what does Soros bribe to gain influence? It will come as no surprise to find that all the ridiculous judgements of the pro-immigrant anti-West European Court of Human Rights is heavily influenced by Soros.
The jigsaw puzzle. It is a pre-requisite of the EU for Member States to be members / supporters of the ECHR. So the story goes on. We’ve been stitched up by the Government for decades: apparently no one saw this slide toward criminal influence since Churchill joined up just after the last war.
‘Western Democracies’? Money with its influence has and always will be, the most important element.
Fatty Pang was on R4’s PM (around 17:35) with Evan Davis and was quite impressive in his condemnation of China over Covid19, the bullying of Australia, corruption of WHO, marginalization of Taiwan, etc. I don’t particularly like the man (naturally, as he was a defender of the BBC!) but, as the last governor of Hong Kong up to 30/6/1997, he should know what they are like.
Not BBC but the dopey Daily Mail taking us for chumps.
I’m getting daily news pop-ups telling me the virus total death toll has risen.
Errr, how would that number have fallen?
Lazarus-like, do they think we expect numbers to fall with people risen from the dead?
I get those annoying pop-ups too. How can they be stopped ?
Try clearing website history and the cache ( whatever that is ) I know it makes targeting stuff more difficult .

I am lucky to be working from home and the last 8 weeks have flown. All the people, who I have telephone contact with, are getting sick and tired of our World Class BBC perhaps I am in the wrong circles.
When will one of the BBC journalists asked the Government “Prime Minister, why haven’t the teachers, who aren’t currently working, been furloughed on 80%?”
Its funny isn’t it, how the last 2 months have whizzed by, and I have friends who don’t want the lockdown to end because they’ve been putting ‘all the jobs that need doing’ off until tomorrow ! and now with the looming of exiting lockdown, there is little time left to do all those jobs ! Panic !!!! I know I’m retired, but its felt quite cocoon like not having to worry about commitments or having to rush to get anything done. And far from it having a mental effect, its been relaxing and done wonders for my well being. Sadly for those living in confined spaces the effects wont be as good.
A member of the Brexit Party and his partners experience of applying for ‘Fruit Picking’ vacancies. Well worth a read.
The subject matter? All part and parcel of the nonsense members of the public are swimming in a sea of on a daily basis. Probably the hype over the ‘shortages’ came from the lying MSM or the BBC.
In an effort to lift our spirits and counter the unrelenting negativity from critics of the Government’s handling of the Covid crisis and as an alternative to the happyclapping for the NHS this Thursday, let’s all sing this abridged version of a little ditty from WW2 with lyrics penned by Johnny Mercer entitled “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive”. The version which is probably best known is by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters from 1944 so the wartime connection seems highly relevant today (other artists interpretations are available including, bizarrely, Paul McCartney) – younger readers may need to check it out on youtube
You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between (change to Boris Johnson?)
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium (should this be pandemic?)
Liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark
Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between
Do you hear me?
Oh, listen to me children and you will hear
About the eliminating of the negative
And the accent on the positive
And gather round me children if you’re willing
And sit tight while I start reviewing
The attitude of doing right
I remember that song so well from my childhood but I’m afraid it is far too upbeat to become the BBC theme tune, who much prefer to accentuate the misery.
Never in the field of British history have so many been so brainwashed, so completely and so quickly, by so few.
BBC Kiddies Newsround runs an article on sleep difficulties because of lockdown
They obviously went off to Getty Images library for photos of sleeping children.
First 4 large black kids photos, then finally last photo at the bottom of the page one small image of a ginger haired sleeping white kid.
If you actually go to Getty images and search for sleeping children you get…
First page returns 57 photos of white kids and 2 photos of black kids…
So it must have taken the BBC researcher quite a time to gather the images they used…
Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tock!
These ‘Mickey Mouse’ organisations and their acolytes make me sick. Simply causing confusion. I guess that’s the reason they and the Garden Gnome in Scotland decided to ‘pip to the post’ the Boris announcement on Sunday.
Wee Krankie’s seeming divergence from the UK re chinese pandemic! When considering ….add into the mix the fact her party are at each others’ throats ….over Salmond and a 2nd referendumb!( which only her rabid core wants)
We might reasonably expect the bBC ‘s shiny new 32million pound scottish white elephant to give some light to matters…………..sadly they have castrated themselves either on orders or self hatred due the the viewing figures of the new venture( some barely registering enough viewers to be counted)
So look between the lines of what this woman says////it is always political and delivered with the intensity of the obsessed!
What’s worse – the bBC’s wishy-washy regional report or the inaction of the Home Office?
BBC selective coverage of US Senate hearing
Government Briefing Watch .
Number 10 has a sense of humour . They keep putting Alok Sharma up to do the briefing . Mr Sharma is a sort of light brown version of John Major and the best aid to a late afternoon snooze yet invented .
The Government reports 627 deaths in all settings – and from what I’ve seen 50% of those are non hospital cases – presuming that they are care home deaths .
If anyone does the numbers in detail it looks to me as more people are going to be dying outside hospitals than in them – the elderly being sacrificed .
Only 85k tests reported –
Sorry for your troubles. Your comments remind me of the six days Cane Corso spent in St Thomas’s last summer. Guy in the next bed was moved (God knows where) having MRSA , so got to witness the cleaning. Migrant who did not know how to switch on the vacuum cleaner and a bit of desultory wiping. I do more round the dog’s bed and bowl each day. The consultant couldn’t wait to get Cane out of there and don’t tell me it was pressure on the NHS as the bed occupancy was 75% throughout.
When I worked at the Western Hospital the older inhabitant’s of Fulham were very loath to be sent “up the Fever” as they probably suspected they would not return. Perhaps we are moving towards this situation again.
I link this to to the Beeb as this is something that will never be discussed – or drowned out by clapping. Change of the NHS needs a forum like this one. Had I the technical competence and the courage (Fed I salute you) I would do it myself.
The Beeb seems to have got carried away with the death of the US black “jogger” . It seem quite happy to except the MSM narrative that this was a racial murder and is doing its race baiting best to egg it on.
Will they continue with the story when it will be shown that the “jogger” a convicted criminal was not on his daily exercise but instead was trespassing. Of course not.
Why is there no description of the “culprit”?
Why is an adult white male, wearing a van drivers flag, not being sought?
Why has no adult white male been arrested since this event, which took place on 2020-03-22?
Why is there no CCTV identifying the despicable adult white male for this event which took place in Victoria Station?
I concede that in the backward UK such advanced technology, invented by Nelson Mandela, is unlikely to be provided.
Why are adult white male criminals permitted to be members of British Transport Police?
Why was this vulnerable woman whose ancestors have only lived in Africa for ten trillion years allowed to move to the UK when it was known that her genes made her likely to die from a disease created by racist adult white males in the UK?
A disease which these racist adult white British males have tried to blame on innocent Chinese people who spend their time looking after bats and pangolins?
Why has this woman been enslaved for twenty years by the racist adult white males?
Given so little spare time she has only one child when it is the custom of the advanced people from the Congo to have twenty children?
Why is Boris Johnson apologising?
Why do I not give a ****?
‘Belly Mujinga, 47, was on the concourse of Victoria station in London on March 22 when a member of the public who said he had Covid-19 spat and coughed at her and a colleague. Within days of the assault, both women fell ill with the virus.’
This is circumstantial evidence at best.
Absolute sympathy from me to her family and friends.
But do I spy a compensation suit in the offing?
‘British Transport Police are now investigating, although it is believed a complaint was not registered with them at the time, despite Ms Mujinga and her colleague asking staff at employers Govia Thameslink Railway to contact police, the union said.’
Meanwhile, whatever happened to the International Anti BBC protest?
Event scheduled for Thursday 14th May.
Google and Microsoft seem to have fine tuned their search engines to obliterate the occasion.
Fortunately HardLeftyPedia has an article entitled Karl Prusik.
Prusik is best known for the creation of a knot, widely used in climbing, which would be suitable for lamposts without crossbars.
As scientists, BBBC users will be aware of the necessity to verify my statements by repeated experiments.
