    The past year has seen some pretty startling trends which I hope are obvious to the general public. These are:

    The rank hypocrisy of the elites on just about any topic you wish to mention. Surely they must know people resent this ‘do as I say not as I do attitude’. It makes me suspect that they don’t care what we think and therefore it follows that they don’t care how we vote at elections because they know they can always get the result they want.

    The politicisation of science as exemplified by the distortion and outright lies we repeatedly hear on topics from Covid to Climate Change. Expert science is now held in the same low regard as journalism.

    GPS Have repeatedly demonstrated their contempt for patients and at the same time their greed. Their cover organisation , the NHS, has shown itself to be unfit for purpose to even the most myopic of those who use it.

    Other groups who have suffered enormous reputational loss in the past year are Charity bosses , work from home civil servants , the C of E , the police and schools and Universities.

    The BBC , despite it reputation being at rock bottom at the start of the year, must surely have shed a few million more viewers and hopefully hundreds of thousands of License Fee payers.

    Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner

    Mail online video pushed at me by You Tube titled:

    COVID-19 vaccines in the UK: Londoners get vaccinated on Christmas Day

    I recognise the location as Ilford Town Hall & wonder whether any of these Londoners would actually have been celebrating Christmas were they not jabbing or getting jabbed instead?

    I remember childhood Christmas shopping trips to Ilford towm centre and the seeing the Nativity scene they used to display in a glass case outside the Town Hall

    Not one single whitey in sighty – perhaps our BBC and our furniture advertisers are getting it about right afterall?

    Sometimes I’m absolutely baffled by what the BBC consider to be front page news:

    Platinum Jubilee: Pubs could stay open until 1am, home secretary proposes.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59792855

    So the pubs can stay open 2 hours longer for one weekend in June. Whoopee. Why is that headline news ?.

    ‘There will be a month-long consultation over the plans.’
    ‘People can submit their views about the move to extend licensing hours and the government said it would also take into account issued raised by police, licensing authorities and alcohol awareness groups.’

    What ??????. For one weekend ?.

    I’m sure these articles always have some agenda-based reason behind them, but often I have no clue what it is.

      Maybe it’s because the cowardly useless incompetent Tories have announced a major policy ? Keep the pubs open a couple of hours longer for one day – it seems just about all this shower can manage.

        It’s also a reminder that regulating pub hours was, like income tax, a “temporary” measure in the time of war. Just like, no doubt, electronic passports, just for jab status of course, would be a temporary measure.

    Alex Belfield news from Dec 19th
    Man impersonating him jailed for 1 year for stalking.
    https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/obsessed-stalker-accused-celebrities-child-22488493

    Belfield has always said that he is under siege by crazy trolls and the BBC who believe them.

    When his house was raided under the premise that the BBC had had a bomb threat from him, it obviously seemed a set up from someone pretending to be him.

    Now the court case shows that an Asperger’s guy harassed a load of celebrities by sending out vile accusations to them and signed the letters “Alex Belfield”
    A celebrity is quoted as saying he never believed the letter was actually from Belfield.
    A couple of weird things
    #1 Belfield said that of course if someone is to be prosecuted for impersonating you, you’d expect the police to tell you.
    They didn’t, he only found out from the papers after the trial

    #2 The Daily Mail article managed to do the whole trial report, without mentioning Alex Belfield.

    This does kind of explain the way police charged Belfield with stalking but the trial date was set so far in the future as September 2022, they knew they had to fit this guy’s trial in before, I suppose there could be other trials of trolls to come.

    The UN sponsored by The PRC ….

    ..anyway – tucked away on C5 select they’ve been re running ‘all creatures great and small ‘ – the 2021 version . I had no expectations and remember the Robert Hardy BBC version before the BBC went sour .

    Anyway – the C5 version was almost like the way TV series used to be . They played it straight without much by way of embarrassing box ticking propaganda and it worked as a result …
    They’ve made 2 series … I reckon there’s enough in the tank for a third ….

    I got to wondering why the BBC hadn’t made this – at at that moment I realised – it’s too British – isn’t that sad ?

    Anyway – if you get a chance – I reckon it will be a regular C5 repeat ….

    Very sad that BBC DJ Janice Long has died but is it really the second most importanty story in the world and the most important one in the UK? Seems so judging by the BBC’s decision to place her death so prominently on their website.

    What gets less, er no, coverage is the fact that ‘The Simon Wiesenthal Center –named after the famed Nazi-hunter – has placed the BBC at No 3 on its annual ‘Global Antisemitism Top Ten’ list.

    Yep….the BBC is anti-Semitic but somehow fails to notice…bet it would notice if it had been the Tory Party.

    We all know that this is true…the world’s most famous and possibly trusted news organisation is anti-Semitic and helps spread the most vile and dangerous hatred around the world…astounding…even more astounding is that they continue to get away with it unchallenged.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10344671/BBC-just-Hamas-respected-Jewish-organisations-antisemitic-list-shame.html

    ‘‘We believe the BBC has been guilty of several incidences of anti-semitism during the past year.

    ‘People might assume we would put neo-Nazi groups on our list but the BBC is there because when a globally recognised organisation allows antisemitism to creep into its reporting, it makes it all the more insidious and dangerous.

    ‘People around the world trust the BBC and rely on it for truthful reporting of world events.’

    The Rabbi singled out the Corporation’s reporting of an attack on a busload of Jewish teenagers by a group of men who chanted anti-Israel slogans.

    The incident took place in London’s Oxford Street last month as the teens celebrated the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

    ‘The BBC falsely reported that a victim on the bus used an anti-Muslim slur. But what was heard on tape was a distressed Jewish man speaking in Hebrew appealing for help,’ Rabbi Hier said.

    The BBC responded…

    ‘The BBC issued a statement earlier this month saying the story was a ‘factual report’ that ‘overwhelmingly focused on the individuals the police want to identify; those who directed abuse at the bus’.’

    No…the BBC went out of its way to make up a lie and use it to suggest the Jews were provoking the Muslims…never mind the alleged comment came well into the video of the Muslims attacking the bus.

    On another incident where the BBC assumed the worst and reported it they say…

    ‘A BBC source said the original tweet had been posted when there was ‘some confusion’ over the incident. Mr Daraghme later published another tweet clarifying what had happened.’

    Hmmm…this is the BBC that will wait and wait before reporting the truth when it involves Muslims and it looks like bad news….but with Jews it’s instant denouncement and accusation by the BBC.

    Let’s see the Balen Report…if it’s as innocent as the BBC claims then publish it…and let’s have another inquiry, independent, one the BBC can’t hide, and let’s hear the truth about the BBC’s anti-‘Israel’ reporting.

    From the Mail….

    ‘The BBC is silencing the viewers who should be heard

    The BBC’s existence is an attempt to answer a series of linked riddles. How can you sustain a national broadcaster to pursue the best in everything, free from commercial pressure?

    How can the state collect the funds for such a body, without turning it into a lapdog of the ruling party? How can such a corporation be regulated to ensure impartiality?

    Once, the BBC contained so many men and women who profoundly believed in its mission that this task was easier and governments worried about it less.

    But since the 1960s, a growing number of BBC personnel have decided these high principles do not apply to them. If nobody stops them, they turn the Corporation into a megaphone for their largely Left-wing opinions.

    And, increasingly, nobody does stop them. The public have noticed and so they turn to the BBC’s own complaints system in the hope of having some influence. But as we report today, that system is more or less useless. Its supposed backstop is the quango Ofcom, crammed with ex-BBC staffers and marinated in the same ideas.

    And the first stage of the complaints procedure itself is just a sort of spongy layer, outsourced to the service company Capita, apparently designed to soak up and ignore public discontent.

    As we report today, only a tiny number of complaints – roughly one in a thousand – ever reach the real complaints department, the grandly named Executive Complaints Unit. Most viewers almost certainly do not know how to get their grievances past Capita’s software. This is a mockery of the licence-payer.

    Whatever the right answer is to the BBC’s complaints, this is the wrong one. Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries is correct to be worried and should act swiftly to ensure the voice of the viewers is actually heard in the Corporation’s sequestered corridors.’

    Never heard of her.
    Not that old, so the only mildly interesting aspect is: died from what? ​

    “after a short illness..”

    That’s nearest the BBC get, and doesn’t ask further, following their pattern of treating causes of death as somehow embarrassing or something else?

      If someone just died I wouldn’t be looking to give her or her family a kicking.

      She had been in hospital on June 27th with an un-named illness
      Then she came back to present her nightly Radio Wales show
      Her last episode was on Dec 9th 2021.. since then other DJs have been covering for her.
      In the past a lot of charities have thanked her for her help.
      I believe that some of the BBC northern DJs have spoke up against wokism, she may have been one of them.

        Just saying what I see. Go check some of her interviews : she doesn’t come across as the strongest of people and we see many, many showbusiness people fall victim to drink and drugs when things get tough because it’s the kind of highly-strung people they tend to be to go into that business in the first place.

        I’m not gloating or saying she deserved it in any way. I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult life is for people like that.

        Of course the most likely cause is the big C which can take any of us at any time. But often when the family don’t give the the reason, they are holding it back until the initial interest has died down for a reason.

    I suggest we all send them a message via their complaints system, congratulating them on winning third place as the world’s most racist organisation.

    And complain that with those millions of pounds given to them under duress, we expect them to do better next time after being beaten by a terrorist organisation that has to actually work for their funding.

      AFAIK as I know Osman was a TV background man
      “Osman worked at Hat Trick Productions alongside Ben Smith before becoming creative director of the television production company Endemol UK (1999) (he left in Dec 2020)
      They specialise in coming with formats which are then franchised worldwide.
      Then in 2009 when he was in the team that came up with Pointless he ended up with the role as co presenter, cos no one else was available AFAIK.
      Osman was not intended to be co-presenter; originally, he filled the role only as part of a demonstration laid on for the BBC. However, the BBC executives asked him to continue when they commissioned the first series.
      Osman then approached comedian Alexander Armstrong to be the main presenter;

      He’s almost blind.

      Thanks Stew- I didn’t know La Boheme was on tonight.
      20 years ago I was working in Italy helping the Italian
      Government to legalize bookmaking. I was living
      quite near to the Puccini estate at Torre del Largo near to
      Rimini .Myself and my wife visited the estate.
      We were escorted around the grounds by a guide who was
      a lady well into her eighties. At the end of the tour she asked
      if there were any questions. I asked her what the maetsto would of thought
      of Andrew Lloyd Webber. She looked at me fiercely and asked
      me if I knew him. I said no. She told us that she was the
      grand-daughter of Puccini and if the maestro would of
      been alive he would be suing Webber , like she was !
      I said it must be because of ” Music of the night” from
      Phantom of the Opera being a dead ringer of an aria from
      a Puccini opera ” The Girl of the Golden West.”
      As it happens it was settled out of court. Where the Puccini
      estate got its just rewards.
      Puccini composed some of the most beautiful melodies
      in the history of music. I often give my pets Puccini heroine
      names . That’s the bitches. As I write this my fourth springer
      spaniel Mimi is sitting under my desk. As you may well know
      Mimi is the doomed heroine of La Boheme.
      Actually my Mimi is quite a celebrity if you google ” Mimi fetch
      it-springer spaniel ” There was a feature about her in the Daily
      Mail. Anyway thanks for the info about the opera. I will
      now sing ” Che gelida manina” ( your tiny paw is frozen to Mimi)
      Happy Christmas Stew.

        With part of the central theme of Cher’s character
        going to see La Boheme at the Met with her opera
        fanatic friend played by Nicolas Cage. Not because
        it has an operatic theme. Moonstruck is one of my favourite films
        of all time. Thanks once again Stew.

          It might well be world wide ‘student’ food, but the Americans appear to live on it, or eating Chinese takeaway directly from the cartons (why not put it on plates ???), or eating ice cream straight from the tub – clearly no dessert dishes are sold in the States.

    Strange item on the News at 6 o’clock. A statue of Christ vandalised in India. I wondered why this trivial foreign event was deemed newsworthy when so many far more serious crimes in Britain and around the world are ignored. It’s not as if the BBC likes Christianity or even believes in God.

    Then they said that attacks on churches have doubled since Narendra Modi’s right wing BJP Hindu nationalist party won the election in 2014.

    Now I get it. These Hindus may not like Christians but they hate the Beeb’s beloved Muslims more. Let’s emphasise this attack on the Christian statue, provoke the ire of Christians and get them to unite with the BBC and their Muslim friends against these horrid Hindu right wing nationalists.

    The BBC never devotes the same amount of time to violent attacks on Christians in Islamic countries that they have just devoted to this statue in India.

      Zelazek, what the BBC are not telling you about India is that each State within the Indian nation has a degree of autonomy. (It’s a similar set-up in some ways to Germany.) In addition, I think I’m correct in writing that the population of each state has a slightly different religious bias. For example, Kashmir, in the north-west on the border with Pakistan, has a high Muslim population. Same western side but way down south, Kerala State has a high Christian population, especially of Roman Catholics. Also down in the south, bordering Kerala, is Tamil Nadu State with a high proportion of Tamils who are largely Hindus.

      Therefore, it is nothing to do with Narendra Modi and his national BJParty. The BBC news from India is biased because they do not like Modi. He is a conservative as you have noticed. However, he aims along with his BJParty to maintain freedom of religious choice in India as a nation. That is probably another reason why the BBC do not like Modi: he has restricted migrant workers coming into India who mostly were Muslims and I suspect were busy proseletizing those of no faith but also Hindus.

      I cannot remember which State most of the Christian persecution occurs in – I think it is two. Karnataka may be one of them.

      Typical BBC deceit, well spotted by you.

      Yet no Asians at all. And statistically they make up more of the population. Same as the advertisements on TV.

    Shocking video shows crossbow-wielding man threatening to ‘assassinate the Queen in revenge for 1919 Amritsar massacre’ – as 19-year-old who scaled Windsor Castle walls is sectioned

    The pre-recorded message was reportedly sent by Jaswant Singh Chail to his friends on Snapchat at 8:06am on Christmas Day, 24 minutes before a man was arrested by police inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.

    The suspect, who police have not yet named, was arrested shortly after 8.30am yesterday after he was spotted on CCTV roaming the gardens after scaling an outer wall. He was later sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

    The footage shows a figure wearing a black tracksuit and white mask thought to have been inspired by Star Wars – with a framed image of one of the franchise’s obscure villains Darth Malgus on the wall behind the man.

    He says: ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the Royal Family. This is revenge for those who have died in the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

    ‘It is also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated on because of their race. I’m an Indian Sikh, a Sith. My name was Jaswant Singh Chail, my name is Darth Jones.’

    Scotland Yard confirmed detectives are investigating the video as part of a probe into the Christmas Day breach.

    What was the 1919 Amritsar massacre, also known as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre?
    The Amritsar massacre, otherwise known as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, took place on April 13, 1919, during a protest against the arrest of two pro-Indian independence leaders.

    It took place in a historic garden, called Jallianwala Bagh, close to the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar.

    Brigadier-General R. E. H. Dyer surrounded the protesters in response, leaving them with only one exit to get out of the Bagh.

    He then ordered his troops to shoot demonstrators, including those who were fleeing the massacre.

    On his orders, his soldiers only stopped firing when they had exhausted their ammunition.

    Estimates of the death toll range between 379 and more than 1500.

    A further 1200 people were injured, among them 192 who sustained serious injuries.

    The massacre led to a re-evaluation of the British Army’s use of force and soldiers were subsequently trained in less violent methods of crowd control.

    But it also led to a complete loss of trust in the British Army by Indian civilians and, some historians have argued, paved the way for Indian independence from British rule.

    It is though Chail was drawing parallels to Star Wars in his message, in which he called himself ‘Darth Jones’ – a possible reference to the actor who voice Darth Vader in the original trilogy, James Earl Jones.

    The Sith worship the dark side of ‘the Force’ and are enemies of the Jedi Knights.

    Chail sent the video on Snapchat, with the message: ‘I’m sorry to all of those who I have wronged or lied to. If you have received this then my death is near. Please share this with whoever and if possible get it to the news if they’re interested.’

    Scotland Yard said detectives were examining the footage which was posted on social media before the Christmas Day incident at the Queen’s Berkshire home.

    Police confirmed a crossbow was found after the intruder was detained in the castle grounds while the Queen was in residence.

    There is no indication the intruder, who has not been named, was known for making threats to any members of the Royal Family before this week.

    And sources say that once he had gained access to the royal estate, the teenager ‘didn’t know what to do with himself’ and was quickly arrested.

    But it is clear that the incident is being taken extremely seriously. The Metropolitan Police is investigating and has informed the Home Office.

    Crossbows are often referred to as ‘lethal but legal’ because they require no licence or registration and can be bought on the internet with ease.

    Police will be looking at how the intruder was able to scale the spiked perimeter fence surrounding the Berkshire castle’s grounds in the first place.

    It is believed he had a makeshift ladder to gain access from the Long Walk, which royals frequently use because of its proximity to the Queen’s private apartments.

    The Long Walk is located in an area of parkland that can be accessed by members of the public.

    A major internal security review will be initiated as a matter of course, particularly as it follows a series of security scares on the Windsor Great Park estate involving Prince Andrew.

    In one incident a woman posing as a guest entered his home, Royal Lodge.

    Strictly of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall, have voiced concern after some of their most trusted police bodyguards were removed in a security shake-up.

    Even the Queen has privately expressed disquiet over changes to the way she and her family are protected, sources said.

    The latest security scare took place after the suspect with the crossbow was found at 8.30am on Christmas Day, when the Queen would have been at Windsor without her family.

    Retired chief superintendent Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection at Scotland Yard, said the incident again highlighted the ‘very serious threat‘ that ‘fixated people and stalkers’ pose.

    He said: ‘Since the time of George III, 99 per cent of attacks against members of the Royal Family have involved a fixated person, or stalker. And the news that a crossbow was involved actually scares me. They will go through a windscreen.

    But he cautioned: ‘It is always a balance between public accessibility to the Royal Family and their ability to live even the semblance of a normal life, with their safety. You can’t turn these royal residence into prisons. And royalty protection is like an onion.

    ‘There are layers. There would have been a lot of other obstacles for him to get through before he even got near a member of the Royal Family. It is clear he was picked up by CCTV and apprehended at the first possible opportunity. Troubling as the incident is, in this case the security worked.’

    In a statement the Metropolitan Police said: ‘A 19-year-old man from Southampton was arrested on suspicion of breach or trespass of a protected site and possession of an offensive weapon.

    ‘Security processes were triggered within moments of the man entering the grounds and he did not enter any buildings.

    ‘Following a search of the man, a crossbow was recovered. The man was taken into custody and has undergone a mental health assessment. He has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

    ‘Enquiries into the full circumstances of this incident are being progressed by Metropolitan Police Specialist Operations.’

    Security at Windsor Castle has been beefed up in recent years, sources have said. A review was carried out in 2003 after self-styled comedy terrorist Aaron Barschak broke in during Prince William’s 21st birthday party.

    Dalian Atkinson: Police apologise for killing black ex-footballer
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59798500

    This is another BBC story where you read it and you wonder what the big story is.

    The trial + conviction were all finished back in the Spring. It got the full coverage then. This is just the police sending a letter of apology. And then only because they are obliged to because of the ‘European Convention of Human Rights’.

    Is this really the top headline news article today ?. And it seems only The Guardian (of course) and Sky even have this story. Though only the BBC have specifically added ‘black’ into the headline.

    This is one of the BBC’s ‘Lie by repetition’ where they are forcing an old story to appear to be big news again in order to muckrake in the name of the agenda. They have done that a few times recently : they are getting desperate.

    What it did do is get me to find out the details of what happened when this guy died.

    ‘He got dad by the throat and said he was going to kill him. He told dad he had already killed me, our brother Paul and sister Elaine and he had come for him.’

    Just part of it. No wonder the BBC have kept that quiet : who would want to be a policeman these days ?.

    Considering the NHS & BBC

    Considering most of our woes over the last twenty months have been suffered so as serve the government-led desire to protect the NHS, the result of a poll in the Guardian today ought to be a bit of a shocker:

    Amid delays and staff shortages, one in four Britons fear they would not get adequate care

    One could joke that another quarter of the population are now employed by the NHS – largely in a non-medical capacity: diversity officers, etc – and the remaining half of the population are don’t knows because they are still young fit and well and have not yet graduated onto an NHS waiting list for treatment.

    One senses our BBC and by extention our NHS recognise popular support ebbing away in certain quarters (one-in-fours?) and so push out this pie-in-the-sky puff piece today:

    Screening for prostate cancer could be possible in the next five years, according to one of the UK’s leading experts. About 50,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with the disease each year, and nearly 12,000 die.‘ (BBC) – for “people” read men – but I digress.

    Throw them a bone – would seem to be the message.

    Prof Peter Johnson, the national clinical director for cancer at NHS England, said better treatments had improved survival from the disease… He also warned the pandemic meant thousands of people who needed treatment had not even been diagnosed.

    Not the pandemic – the official reaction to the pandemic

    That last statement above, by the way, is the BBC’s very last paragraph in their report – the headline and main body and tone of which is positive in its messageing.

    Bearing in mind the dissonance between media reports and on the ground reality (which is what we’re all about hereabouts, right?) here’s an interesting quote from the Guardian’s tame expert (Sally Warren of the King’s Fund):

    “But it’s not just media reports that change people’s perceptions of the health service, and many people have personal experience of struggling to access their GP or being stuck on a waiting list”, she added

    The Guardian still thinks Labour thinks they are onto a good thing and we all still love and admire the NHS: ‘Labour said the findings [of the survey] showed the effects of persistent and unaddressed staff shortages‘ – one suspects NHS union strikes for big payrises next year may tip the balance against this failed institution in the minds of many more people.

    And on a lighter note some early football results for matches to be played in 2022 are already coming in…

    Various Health ‘bodies’ that run the NHS or are linked to the NHS
    The teaching Unions
    City and Regional Mayors, especially if from the Labour Party

    and of course, the British Broadcasting Company.

    The BBC are desperate – for several reasons – to save Sir Keir Starmer’s leadership of the Labour Party. Labour stand little chance of winning a General Election with a ‘Far Left’ or ‘Hard Left’ leader or leadership team as proved by Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell in 2019, especially when up against Boris Johnson-led Conservatives.

    They are out to get Boris out of the Party leadership. Sir Keir has been proved wrong in July of this year. If Boris Johnson is not forced into new Pandemic restrictions in England Keir Starmer may be proved wrong again. Starmer will only have one more chance: Ange and others are just itching to get their hands on the tiller and will push Keir overboard. The 8 point lead for Labour in a certain recent Opinion Poll could well dribble away with a decline in Covid-19 infections, hospitalisations and deaths as spring and summer advance in 2022.

    Therefore, the BBC’s goal, along with all the others listed and maybe some I haven’t thought of, will be to divide the PM from his Party, divide the PM from some vociferous backbenchers, is to keep ‘Partygate’ and ‘Wallpapergate’ and ‘Hancockgate’ and ‘Cummingsgate’ going through 2022.

    As an addition to my comment above, regarding the bbc and its desperation to minimise the racial attacks murders and rapes of white farmers in Africa, and provide reasons why they think it acceptable.

    This is one of the main reasons I believe the bbc is biased: they used the phrase “Some conservative groups say the farmers are victims of a genocide ”

    Yet do we EVER hear, for example, “a socialist activist, who works for the NHS said” ?

    Yet so many of these “activists” as revealed spewing twitter bile, are used for attacks upon the government and they have to be forced to grudgingly apologise for not mentiioning this.

    Yet need to encouragement to mention the word “conservative” when attempting to minimise the fact that whites are being attacked raped and killed by blacks

    And as for the times they use “far right” versus the times they use “islamic terrorist” well QED they are biased

      Or, I should say, BBC “award winning racists”.

      Wiesenthal Center puts BBC 3rd – after only Iran, Hamas – on antisemitism list
      Organization’s head says ‘months of intense debate and discussion’ preceded ranking; cites alleged biased reporting, antisemitic staff

      https://www.timesofisrael.com/wiesenthal-center-puts-bbc-3rd-after-only-iran-hamas-on-antisemitism-list/

      Once again, we have to rely on overseas press to find the truth.

      “People might assume we would put neo-Nazi groups on our list,” Hier told the paper, “but the BBC is there because when a globally recognized organization allows antisemitism to creep into its reporting, it makes it all the more insidious and dangerous.”

      Hier cited the BBC’s reporting of an attack this month in London on a busload of Jewish teenagers, who were celebrating the Hanukkah holiday, by a group of men who chanted anti-Israel slogans. The report claimed that one of the apparent victims used an Islamophobic slur.

      “The BBC falsely reported that a victim on the bus used an anti-Muslim slur. But what was heard on tape was a distressed Jewish man speaking in Hebrew, appealing for help,” Hier said.

      The top-ten list also noted that a journalist for the BBC — who has since been dismissed — tweeted that “Hitler was right” in 2014.

      The pro-Israel Honest Reporting media watchdog flagged the seven-year-old tweet, which led the BBC to open an internal investigation that ultimately led to Tala Halawa’s firing.

        A feature on Toady this morning concerning Prostrate Cancer. Our Worlds Most Trusted Broadcaster tells us that black men are much more likely to get the cancer than white folk. So the science is racist then? That assertion is in keeping with the popular disregard for real science and fact so that’s OK then…………

          G, that would be a straight statistical thing but they should have qualified the claim by stating whether its was for men of African and Caribbean origin worldwide or only in Britain. If it was the latter, then they really ought to set it against data from Africa and the Caribbean.

          The now discredited Lancet study by a London University that claimed that more BAME people were likely to die from Covid due to poverty or their jobs – again national locality not mentioned – completely ignored the statistical evidence from around the world that it tended to be a white person’s disease leading to infection and death.

        There is little likelihood, without firm intervention by the British government, that the BBC will relinquish its leadership of the global anti-Israel movement that has contributed to so much suffering, misery and bloodshed. As British journalist Melanie Phillips writes: “It is no exaggeration to say that when it to comes to Israel, the issue is not BBC bias. It is BBC incitement to baseless hatred”.

    Hidden away in local news, Berkshire.. The guy arrested in Windsor Castle grounds trying to kill the queen as mentioned above. Of course he has ‘ mental health problems’ but also of course the BBC article, if anyone did manage find it, avoids completely any mention of his name, nationality and his stated reason for the attempt. ( widely reported elsewhere, he wants revenge against Britain.) He is a ‘ man from southampton’ ..

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-berkshire-59799994

    Though because he said it was in revenge for what he alleges the British did in India I am surprised the BBC is not already saying how right and justified he was. Guess that will come soon enough.

      Kent,
      I would have thought for something so grave – it would have been for a court to decide if he was fit to stand trial? What happens to someone ‘sectioned ‘ like this ? Is he quietly released in a week ?
      The failure to identify – or for a follow up on family and friends is frankly incredible in the circumstances …have any Sikhs said anything ?
