    Moderator note …

    As we are at the dregs is 2021 I thought it might be an idea to look back at BBC bias for 2021 and re recall the worst cases.

    ( I know Craig over at the excellent ‘is the BBC biased ‘ site is doing the same but whatever ….)

    As a starter – I would suggest the free ride that the fraudulent US President is getting from the BBC – compared to its ‘ obsession with killing president trump – is number one – but your views might differ…


    • Deborah says:

      Though an excellent idea Fedup2, a review of the year, time seems to be doing very strange things to me and I am not blaming the vax. I didn’t have my first vaccination until May and that seems a lifetime ago, yet each day or week rushes by. So when were extinction rebellion gluing themselves to trains, or their mates at insulate Britain sticking to the road. I can remember the BBC and the police being sympathetic to both, but how? Oh dear I think my brain is atrophying.


    • Doublethinker says:

      There are myriad examples of extreme BBC bias throughout 2021 , as there have been every other year since the nineties. What links all of those examples is the narrative of support for the aims of the liberal globalist blob, which aims to run the Western world for its own benefit under the guise of a deeply caring, compassionate, democratic , tolerant, inclusive modern society , of which blobists are the high priests and multi billionaires.
      Of course the high priests need a few million helpers which is where the BBC et al come in. These helpers will be well looked after by the priests , live comfortable lives well insulated from the harsh realities of the post democratic world they have helped to create. Meanwhile we ordinary folks can scratch around for a living whilst survey the wreckage of the society we grew up in wondering how the hell it happened.

      Speaking of dregs, the bbc reviewing comedy will be… interesting, in that Chinese Square sense.

      Maybe Nish and Jo can host a special?

      I doubt this will make the cut.

    BBC outraged.

    Worse than that Jim…

    Comments split between over 18s outraged and those thinking back to the days of Uncle Stu, etc.

    Can you see where this is headed yet?

    Once Mike Wendling gets in the edit suite for BBC Trending the past will be erased, and Mr. Franco sacrificed…

    Interesting choice of word(s) on the bbc this morning. I was looking at a small “filler” about uk towns applying for city status. Apparently Southend on Sea have applied, following the “death” of MP Sir David Amess.
    May I suggest “Terrorist murder by a stone-age savage who should not have been in this country”? I don’t care if he’d lived here all his life. The statement still stands.
    Certainly shouldn’t be allowed to take another breath, that much I know.
    Angry as I am at this senseless crime, the bbc attitude of applying an “Immigrants are nice” gloss to everything makes me hurl. They probably feel that if they suck up to these people, they will be spared. Ain’t going to happen, mate.

    Meanwhile on Facebook…

    BBC News

    Mandatory vaccinations have been with us for centuries, quietly saving lives.



  5. Guest Who says:

    Luckily, kids can still be freaked by a good ‘could’.

    BBC Newsbeat

    Early evidence suggests fewer people are needing hospital treatment than with other variants. But there are concerns, the sheer number of Omicron cases could overwhelm hospitals.



  6. AsISeeIt says:

    A quick mathematical preamble before we settle down for a Christmas tale of wonder from our BBC

    Between 1977 and 1985 Johnny Ball presented BBC kid’s TV show Think of a Number – poor old Johnny Ball is of course now black balled, persona non grata, since: ‘Children’s TV legend Johnny Ball stuns maths audience with climate change denial. He’s also denied making an Islamophobic remark‘ (Bristol Live July 2019)

    I digress… think of a number…

    Many a journalist nowadays thinks a number is all that is sufficient when conjuring a headline – all be that number quoted, rounded, aggregated, surveyed, estimated, sampled, modelled… whatever: ‘Official: Omicron is 50% less severe‘ (Daily Mail); ‘Risk of hospital stay is 40% lower with Omicron varient, data shows‘ (Guardian); ‘Preliminary data show reduction of between 40% and 70% in hospital stays for serious cases‘ (‘i’)

    The doom-mongering severely coronaphobic ‘i’ newspaper acknowledges the apparently now reduced severity of so-called expert outlook (didn’t we already know this as soon as the term Omicron was coined?) for the lately much vaunted and much hyped feared tsunami of Omicron, chucks around a few figures (take your pick there, folks) and now, damage done, looks forward this feastive period to a gay old time: ‘Cheer up, it’s nearly 2022! Next year brings football, festivals and 50 years of Pride

    Ah, just what just about every young person throughout the ages yearns for – a good helping of sport, entertainment and homosexuality.

    And now – if you’re still sitting comfortably after all that homosexuality – it is time for another Christmas tradition – the fireside Christmas tale.

    Sometimes these are Christmas ghost stories, weird winter’s night tales, such as those classics with which that scholarly master of the genre, Cambridge don MR James, would regale his undergraduates, over hot toddies under dimmed gas lights.

    The BBC brings us a bit of a shocker from the frosty northern climbs of Norway, no less.

    Gay Santa ad highlights big shift in Norwegian society

    But hush! As anarchic comedian Kenny Everett would love to quip: “I’m giving away the plot! And it’s all done in the best possible taste!

    Christmas ads have become an annual tradition, often appearing as mini-films with their own festive story. But one Norwegian commercial, featuring Father Christmas kissing a man waiting for him at home on Christmas Eve, has become a surprise hit.

    Well, fair enough, I’m certainly surprised this is considered a hit. One wonders for half a moment how it encouraged customers to use the Norwegian postal service – but I digress.

    In When Harry meets Santa, the four-minute ad by Norway’s state-run Posten postal service, the man is seen writing Father Christmas a letter to the North Pole with the message: “All I want for Christmas is you.” And he gets his wish.

    Ah, bless, what you might call a happy ending. Pop it in Pete – as Larry Grayson’s posty was known.

    And well, I know Santa does like to stuff something down one’s chimney at this time of year.

    “We wanted to celebrate the 50-year anniversary since the abolition of a law prohibiting same-sex relationships,” says Monica Solberg, Posten’s marketing director

    Well, it is that time of year. Peace on earth and goodwill to all… men.

    As well as praise there has been criticism, with claims that it sexualised Father Christmas or that it showed Santa cheating on Mrs Claus.

    To be fair there have been reports since the 1960s from the Ronettes, for example, who sang: “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus… Underneath the mistletoe last night” – what’s good for the Christmas goose is good for the Christmas gander.

    In many parts of the world, the idea of a gay Christmas romance would be controversial.‘ – surely not, BBC. Not in this day and age!

    But in the Nordic region the ad was generally viewed as a heart-warming Christmas story, reflecting Norway’s progressive approach to LGBT rights.‘ – and with that sweeping generalisation… case closed.

    With that thought in mind we snap the old story book shut as we fondly recall Mr Derek once-upon-a-time would do with Basil Brush.

    Goodness only knows what Rudolph the Reindeer will get up to in some Scandinavian State corporation’s Christmas advert next year.

    Think I’m joking?

    I googled Rudolph the Reindeer and guess what… apropos of nothing I get…

    Is Rudolph a boy or a girl?

    The first written account of Santa Claus having reindeer was in 1821, and since then most people have assumed the reindeer were male – but a scientist says those people would be wrong

    TOADY Watch #2 – at a cost to the taxpayer who is not mentioned merely ignored

    A women’s health ambassador will be appointed to help reduce “gender health inequality” in England. The gender health inequality in England is that men do not go to the Doctor much, and when they do, it is often too late for a medical intervention. They tend to shrug off symptoms and warning signs. This is an established fact. To be fair, the News reader or presenter did mention the other gender health inequality which is that men, generally, have a shorter life expectancy than women, especially outside England.

    Never mind the true gender inequalities in health. Let us have a bit of virtue signalling and job justification by Maria Caulfield and appoint a women’s health ambassador. The pay no doubt, will be a burden on the taxpayer, and will come from the NHS budget paid for by the taxpayer. Then there will be the pay for an office rented somewhere expensive in London, a deputy Ambassador, an administrator and a secretary.

    Ho ho ho, another QUANGO. Oh, thank you. It’s just what I’ve always wanted.


    • JimS says:

      On the service side of the NHS there are still a few male portering and cleaning jobs ripe for elimination.

      Only then will ‘equality’ be achieved!


    • Banania says:

      I couldn’t quite follow that. The task of Women’s Health Ambassador will be to ensure that women do not take more than their fair share of resources from the NHA; is that right?

    TOADY Watch #3 – in which Justin does not ask a crucial question

    Chris Hopson of NHS Providers was the prime interviewee at 8.10 followed by a Nerve Tag committee member Professor (sorry, forgotten name) albeit speaking in a personal capacity, not for NerveTag. It is no wonder the NHS absorbs so much taxpayer cash and has to be constantly ‘saved’ by the taxpayer when HMG has so many Chiefs running the NHS for it and an advising committee on this and that medical and science aspect. One day, someone should compile a list of all these agencies and how many ‘chiefs’ work for them.

    Chris Hopson mentioned bed occupancy is running at 94% at present in the NHS and I am sure that like many other listeners around the UK Snuffy was shouting at the radio “Ask about bed closures, Justin!”

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – it might not be such a good idea . . …

    .. . . . to get Tony Blair (Labour supporting Daily Mirror – if you did not know already – front page) and Gordon Brown (BBC Home Page, top dead centre) https://www.bbc.co.uk/ to keep pushing vaccination. I cannot think of two less trusted individuals than Blair and Brown to push vaccination at home and abroad. And that is even among the young who we know are more likely to be unjabbed and more radically inclined toward the Left and Socialism.


  13. AsISeeIt says:

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry…

    BBC: Just a Minute returns with a virtual audience in January.

    ‘Radio 4’s longest running panel game returns for its 88th series. Sue Perkins is back at the helm and challenges our panel to speak for Just a Minute on the subject of their choosing without hesitation, repetition or deviation’ […. from Omicron-inspired semi-official scaremongering lockdowns. Considering the relaying of project fear “Repetition” is the BBC’s sole fault of those three potential transgressions]

    ‘In order for the BBC to be able to record your reactions throughout, you will also be given access to our Virtual Audience Recording system, which will need to be opened in an up-to-date version of Google Chrome on a PC or Mac (tablets and phones are not currently supported). You will be able to hear reaction from all other audience members live, so we hope that even though you are probably sitting at home, we can try and recreate the feeling that you’re part of a live audience!’

    ‘Audience members will be encouraged to react in the same way you would in a theatre – laugh, applaud and react whenever you want to, and when we mix everything together it will sound amazing!’

    • Up2snuff says:

      TWatO Watch #1 – oh dear, oh dear, that will not do at all

      I heard a rather different TWatO to Johnda. The Montacutie went to a vox pop from a bar and club owner (two ventures) in Glasgow. She asked about the Scottish restrictions. Bar owner explained what it would mean for his businesses and praised Boris Johnson who, he thought, had done the right thing for England.

      Next contributor was a South African sounding Doctor who again, in response to Sarah’s questions, reckoned that Bojo had done the right thing. Ooops. Definitely not what the BBC would have prefered.


  15. Fedup2 says:

    The medical mafia must be over the moon with the bio experiment about to take place – keeping ‘clubs ‘ open in Engerland but shut in the rest of the UK .

    Will that mean a big ‘wave ‘ of sniffling kidults in the 2nd and 3rd week of 2022 in Engerland but not the rest of the UK ?

    The BBC must be worried that Project Fear is running out of steam and that jo public is being responsible for themselves rather than sitting waiting to be told what to do next …

    Must be due for a new brand of Chinese virus ….

        For once im seriously angry. If somebody from a right wing program or publication had published or broadcast such a disgusting poem then it would be all over the BBC news and the left would be screaming blue murder..!!!

        The BBC will get away with it because there is no one that has the balls to confront the lumps of Primordial Slime.

        You may or may not be a fan of Thatcher but she dosnt deserve such foul comments or comparison.

        Jaw dropping and appalling.


        • JohnC says:

          They’ve been pushing the boundary for what they can get away with since Brexit. They upped it a gear for Trump and nobody pushed back. Then they went overboard for Floyd/BLM and got away with that because anyone who pointed it out was branded a racist. Then we saw it totally uncontrolled for Biden where they just report whatever they like and don’t report even more.

          It’s all down to social media and twitter in particular IMHO. It is a cesspit of activists who provide an endless torrent of tweets the BBC can use to show support for what they do, and who also form a mob to destroy anyone who does not agree with them. It’s composed of people such as students and luvvies who would normally be totally disregarded in the real world as immature idiots – but they have discovered the power they can have when they join together. Similar to ants.

          It’s the modern form of Fascism. No different in essence to all the other fascists in history. Totalitarian control of opinion. Anyone who dissents is destroyed. The ultimate group-think.

      of work

  19. JimS says:

    Involuntary listener to Mr Fact Checker Chris Mason standing in for Jeremy Vine.

    He had on Jaquie Weaver pushing her book and praising her for female assertiveness. (She is the Zoom meeting Parish councillor who was in the news).

    Surely his ‘facts’ are back-to-front? Anyone who has set up a Zoom meeting can easily chuck people off, it doesn’t need any special skill. Mason was free with his slandering of the men at the meeting, particularly the two who said they were chairman and vice-chairman. If they really did have those roles then Weaver must have been in the wrong, being just the equivalent of a minute taker?


    • Deborah says:

      A proper Clerk is a highly specific role. They need to know and interpret the Law to advise the meeting to keep within it whilst taking the minutes. They should not be just a minute taker. A good Clerk should anticipate problems and take advice from higher authorities before the meeting.

      As I understand it, Jackie Weaver was asked to Clerk because they knew there would be problems but I don’t think she understood the role.

    • Up2snuff says:

      There’s a deliberate campaign to push vaccine into the arms of everyone. However, the statistics and therefore the science just does not agree. The stats for ME19, Tonbridge and Malling – an affluent area of retired and working people of all ages – can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 by typing ME19 into the ‘look up’ box.

      The area is highly vaccinated, 87% with first dose for age 12 and over, 81% with two doses (both above the 80% level that still lurks in the back of my mind as being important for viruses) and over half have had boosters. Look at the infections though. Fractionally over 400 above the national average today of 761. Interesting that they have so few deaths, just 301. That may be down to more accurate recording of deaths or it may be a tribute to the hospitals in the area. There are if I recall correctly two major NHS ones and the private facility just north of Maidstone on the KIMS campus.


      • Up2snuff says:

        It gets worse if you go to AL10 or EN5 for their stats on vaccines and infections. St Albans are highly vaccinated but they are running infections at over twice the average of 761.

      It reveals how Ofcom are dictating to advertisers what they can and cannot show, shades of Stalin about it!

      We really need to go about smashing these woke quangos and getting rid of their obscene and false influence.

    I have been trying to think of something ‘seasonal and funny’ about Biden but I gave up. There is nothing funny at all about Biden. I am convinced he is the ‘chosen one’ because he is totally expendable and ‘hot swoppable’ with ‘Kamala’ who (observable as incompetent), would be replaced by a US ‘emergency council’ or politburo. What you are about to read is almost unbelievable – and quietly ‘rolled-out’ to Western governments by Biden via the UN ‘as a new world policy’.<And to make it worse its been ‘approved’ without a vote for it!

    At Christmas!

    Read this and wonder, what powers the BBC obsession with sexual identity?

    What do election integrity and sexuality have in common? The Biden Administration.
    Last Thursday, a UN resolution on election integrity sponsored by the United States was adopted “by consensus” (meaning without a vote) by the UN General Assembly (UNGA).

    It was not surprising that no country called for a vote on this U.S.-led resolution as no country wants to openly challenge the U.S. government.

    However, what was unusual was that 22 countries spoke out and either disassociated or reserved on controversial LGBT language in this U.S. resolution. (See the list of countries and a link to their recorded statements below.)

    Most U.S. citizens have no idea that the U.S. regularly bullies, bribes and blackmails developing countries into accepting anti-life and anti-family policies at the UN and elsewhere.

    So the US under Biden is determined to create a top down legal requirement for all countries signed up to the UN to create a new ‘class of peoples’ who ‘self identify’ as neither male or femail, man or woman or use mother and father. That is linked to huge US and UK funding Aid to ‘poor’ (third world) nations who are less than happy being told what is a ‘Man’ or a ‘Woman’ and make the two seem interchangeable, (diversity and equality agenda).

    That fact that its unscientific falls on deaf ears.

    Its hard for Biden ALONE to have ‘thought-up’ all this up himself. Its under the banner of UN idea of Family Human rights (Includes state Abortion and Euthanasia rights push). Designed by the same people who want to ban the word ‘Christmas’, the ‘nuclear family’, the term ‘parents’ and wish to ‘sexualise children’ and make all paedophilia legal (by renaming it another ‘human right’ in LGTTQZYZ identities that cannot be ‘contested’ in court). Money will go to fringe groups via the usual suspects which will include the BBC if they have not already.

    Can you protest? No. There is no UN vote. Some countries will still object, but then they won’t get any US (or UK) funny ‘AID’ money, and they will still get BBC ‘World Service’ propaganda machine working on overload to make it so.

    The left will immediately start to adopt with ‘preferred pronouns’ from now on (starting with BBC next year). They know the game…

    Our own parliamentary committee is ahead of the curve and recommends our MP’s should, approve any ‘motion’ (next year) to make ‘self certification’ legal in the UK. Its as IF they knew what Biden intended all along. BBC head of the curve already.

    Population control? Climate Change? Pandemic drugs?
    Buy one get three.

      So the majority of the African nations, of the Caribbean islands and of Muslim countries wanted to amend the resolution as did both Russia and China.

      It’s pretty obvious where these poor, corrupt and mineral-rich countries will be getting their ‘aid’ from now on, as many already are, and it’s not from the US or the UK. How many others will fall under the influence of the Chinese as the West continues to push this agenda remains to be seen. Central and South America next?


  40. digg says:

    I guess the next Ofcom move will be to make it an offence not to include an ethnic or gay or gender neutral in ANY advert whatever the product.

    A bit like the approach of the big brother in 1984, “you will love diversity”.

    The problem with this is they have no idea how much resentment and hate they are stoking up! You cannot keep insulting the overwhelming majority of the population and keep everyone on-side with stupid artificial rules made by utter twats to push distorted minority issues, it will eventually explode.

    “Omicron: Half of colds will be Covid, warn UK researchers”

      There are a huge mass of statistics supporting the transition of covid symptoms towards those of a cold or mild flu over the last several months.

      The real question is why, in the face of this, the government official line is still, even now, that covid means persistent cough and fever and loss of taste/smell.
      Delta was not like that and omicron less so.
      I can’t myself see why, if you think you have a cold, a quick LFT would be out of order to check. Especially if you are about to visit elderly relatives, for whom covid rates have stayed low in the last few weeks.

    Finally we have a means to immunity from woke, anti white, racist marxist ideology and its occasionally available on this site

    Its called Vaxiconomy

    It’ll give you a pain in the arse for a couple of days

    But it has side effects :

    Your hair may turn purple and you may have an obsession with cut and paste and semantics

    you may end up spending days trawling the web desperately looking for examples of organised, racially aggrevated white indigenous child rape gangs.

    You will commonly develop an allergy to income tax but a fondness for demanding how others taxes are spent

    and You may find yourself in Wicks buying superglue and then heading for the M25

    BBC this morning…

    Depressing news from Nursing homes

    Depressing news regarding COVID over New Year

    Depressing news about families who can’t afford Xmas

    Depressing news about supermarkets running out of food.

    Depressing news about families and debt.

    Depressing news because it’s not a white Xmas.



    • Doublethinker says:

      I stopped listening or watching BBC News and Current Affairs programmes about five years ago and I honestly feel physically and mentally healthier for having done so.
      On top of the news ( propaganda) it churns out depressing documentaries and drama which destroy the nation’s self confidence , belittle our ancestors achievements and claim that the UK is uniquely guilty of monstrous historical crimes and that we must now atone for these centuries old crimes.
      I reckon that the BBC causes mental illness for a significant proportion of those who consume its offerings and should therefore come with a government health warning. That the government forces people against their will to pay for the monstrous corporation which is making them ill is disgusting.

      Merry Christmas

        Happy Christmas . I find the BBC both horrifying and fascinating. For instance . For an outfit so anti Christian ( evil ) it makes such a big fuss over Christmas .

        It spends its time undermining the social fabric of the country – and of course the – our country itself – but it has an image of people – families – at christmas which no longer exists in many cases .

        Its ‘ favourite false religion – islam – doesnt have christmas on its’ calender and go to too many british towns and cities at christmas and you will find there isnt one .

        Yet on the BBC goes – assuming that every one is gonna have a good time and celebrate when that is not always the case- unless you are part of their sick swamp of course .

        Wishing everyone a Good ( perhaps BBC free ) Christmas

          I locked in to a 15-month deal with Scottish Power (1/10/2021 to 31/12/2022) when they offered it towards the end of September. Their previous deal was also 15 months (from 1/7/2020). This was because I suspected big rises were on the way, partly because of the environmentalist insanity promoted by the useless BBC.


          • Fedup2 says:

            Mustapha – I did similar – but the pain even the big ( French ) suppliers are experiencing now will have to be transferred to punters ( voters ) sooner or later .

            Ironically the current self imposed lockdown will push down that upward inflation curve and limit the need for interest rate hikes for a few more months ( this is from the Fedup theory of `economics ) ….

            But the cost of living will be – I think – the Big Issue – for the election in a couple of years time …

            As an aside – unusually this morning the Today money slot gave a couple of uninterrupted minutes to a major investor type who spelled out the main ‘unknowns ‘ which will affect the economy ( UK / western world ) in the coming year – taking into account no war of more serious brand of virus …
            Namely ( in no order )

            Changes in labour patterns
            Supply chain trouble
            Continuing reliance on digital

    The ‘i’ newspaper studiously avoids all mention of the royals on its frontpage – meanwhile for one reason or another they proliferate across other titles this morning – and instead, as would be expected of the nation’s most coronaphobic of titles, the ‘i’ prioritises their familiar daily several pandemic bullet points.

    However, to borrow from football terminology – it is obviously getting rather difficult playing journalistic keepy uppy with the old Omicron.

    Omincron transmission appears to be slowing as scientist calls it a “storm not a hurricane” – storm in a teacup more like. How’s her tsunami working out for Ms Sturgeon in Scotland we wonder – just a rather modest tidal wave?

    The BBC summarises Scotland’s press headlines as: ‘Scotland’s papers: Kennel boss killed by dog and Omicron threat ‘eases’

    Oh dear, Scots journalism seems to be in similiar deep doldrums as is their football – Dog bites man and Omicron disappoints, eh?

    We further note whilst digesting the latest daily presentation from the ‘i’ that when infections were on the increase we had emphatic alarmist language but now infection simply… seems to be slowing.

    Still, all that fuss sold a lot more jabs: ‘Covid: Booster rollout to continue on Christmas Day‘ (BBC)

    Medical procedures at Yuletide… I’m reminded of that ancient novelty record “All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth)” – the refrain of six-year-olds and sixty-six-year-olds down the years.

    PM praises ‘invaluable’ gift of jab‘ (BBC)

    Mind you, getting any form of medical attention out of our NHS these days is a bit of a treat.

    Six-year-old schoolboy to his pal: “My big bruvver told me he found out the family doctor doesn’t exist – it’s just mummy and daddy and grown ups all pretending

    NHS 24 is urging people to treat common illness at home as it faces its busiest period over the festive season.‘ (BBC)

    It expects 170,000 calls over Christmas and New year – including two four-day weekends with GP surgeries closed.‘ (BBC)

    Eight days of surgery closures over the Christmas and New year period allowing NHS staff holidays – because obviously we are still in a pandemic national emergency requiring emergency legislation and regulations to stay in place so as to control the population.

    Have you noticed how the NHS saw a big health problem looming and basically abdicated all responsibilty to government and – in effect – the police.
