    I honestly don’t see the problem for the BBC from the
    government firstly stopping an increase and then
    abolishing the BBC license charge. Commercial advertising
    will kill two birds with one stone for the BBC.
    The continuity personal talking in a semi patois or an
    Irish brogue could be replaced with commercial
    ADVERTISING !! If the advertising we see on the other
    channels were to be shown on the BBC , BIG BROTHER
    and the rest of his, hers, or it’s diversity department would
    be in a permanent orgasmic state.
    Just maybe the only difference with the advertising would
    be if BIG BROTHER insisted that in any advert which just
    consisted of only white folk. Is that they were made out to be buffoons. As we see on a few of the adverts on the commercial channels.
    There BBC, problem solved.

      “Impartiality lies at the heart of public service and is the core of the BBC’s commitment to its audiences. It applies to all our output and services – television, radio, online, and in our international services and commercial magazines. We must be inclusive, considering the broad perspective and ensuring the existence of a range of views is appropriately reflected

    I cannot listen to ‘today ‘ but I caught the propaganda the BBC calls ‘news ‘.

    I bet the BBC really squirmed at the leak of the Islamic terrorist phone call to the brother in England . If it could have ignored or suppressed it – it would have .

    But oh dear – the Jewish Chronicle got it . So there will be hours spent discussing this thankfully dead Muslims hatred for Jews and America – right . ?

    Well you tell me . Somehow I think this powerful event will be gone by lunchtime – or the BBC will focus on the pitiful ‘why wasn’t he stopped ‘ he was mentally ill ‘ crap .

    So let’s change the scenario. . Let’s say it was a whitee in a nazi uniform taking hostages in a synagogue . What sort of coverage would the BBC give to that ?

    You know the answer . Yet the BBC is unbiased- right ?

    The item after the dead Muslim terrorist was about Tommy Robinson and his financial trouble . The glee that there is a crowd funding thing to financially kill him was delivered with glee . I believe the BBC want him physically dead – drive an individual to suicide .

    Anyone still paying for your BBC should go look in a mirror .

      Fed Up- From time immemorial this anti-Semitism
      is passed down from father to son. As for the BBC
      and what you wrote. I believe that is their “balanced”
      approach. The other night as I wrote it was unbalanced,
      mentally ill Muslim taking Jews hostage. Followed by
      a conspiracy story of a Jew being responsible for Anne
      Frank’s family being found by the Nazi’s in Amsterdam.
      BIG BROTHER at the diversity department is in complete
      control over certain news coverage. AND who gets
      interviewed .


      • Fedup2 says:

        I’m well aware of the history of persecution of Jews thanks . Obviously Christians have a shameful responsibility for this .
        But now ? A medieval evil sect is in trenched in the BBC to attack both Christians and Jews in the name of their false prophet and god .

        The State looks the other way . Persecution is ignored . Targeting of churches or synagogues is ignored . Their omission speaks loudly of thar bias .

        It’s ok though because the DG ‘relies on the data ‘ . But how can ‘omission ‘ have data ? Prosecution rests .

      Saudi Money buys a lot of compliance I’m afraid.


    • richard D says:

      One of the things that really puzzles me about all this, is that the discourse between the terrorist and his family was, if the news this morning was true, recorded ‘live’.

      The family hadn’t a clue where this guy was, but a phone call, out of the blue, seemed well-prepared for……


    • theisland says:

      “crowd funding thing to financially kill him was delivered with glee”

      Ah that would be the misnamed ‘hope not hate’ group so beloved of Labour, some teaching unions and the bBC etc. etc. etc.


      • JimS says:

        Daniel Sandford’s article for the BBC reads more like a call for more ‘victims’ of Tommy Robinson to come forward and to make a claim rather than a piece of impartial reporting.

        Regardless of the rights and wrongs £100,000 for Hijazi seems rather a lot but is as nothing compared to the £1.5m claimed by his lawyers.

        ‘Hope not Hate’ is acting like a vigilante mob, something the BBC normally condems. If they are so worried that Hijazi won’t get his windfall why not crowdfund for that?

        Note that, HnH isn’t digging into its own pockets, others are expected to do that. A good example of virtual ‘compassion’ that the woke go in for.

    OT, but media studies usually are around this number.

  4. JimS says:

    Alexei Sayle’s 2017 attack on Margaret Thatcher getting a new outing on Radio 4 Extra.

    Many times he claims that she set out ‘to de-industrialise Britain’, not something that I recall from the time. Indeed he makes a joke about his car being a JCB, if they survived and thrived ‘despite Thatcher’ how did that happen?

    Lots of stuff about ‘the miners’. What with Wilson’s pit closures and Ed Miliband’s Climate Change Act Labour hasn’t done much to help their job prospectives.

    I am curious as to what the position of ‘the left’ is as regards miners. Should the pits have all closed with all miners retired on full pay or should they have continued to dig coal which would sit on the surface unburnt?


    • Sluff says:

      Probably this will be buried in the avalanche of following bias posts.

      But here is a section from wikipedia
      Between 1947 and 1994, some 950 mines were closed by UK governments. Clement Attlee’s Labour government closed 101 pits between 1947 and 1951; Macmillan (Conservative) closed 246 pits between 1957 and 1963; Wilson (Labour) closed 253 in his two terms in office between 1964 and 1976; Heath (Conservative) closed 26 between 1970 and 1974; and Thatcher (Conservative) closed 115 between 1979 and 1990.

      And who, pray, was Secretary of State for Industry and then Energy Secretary between 1974 and 1979? It was that famous right winger and closer of pits……..errrr………….Tony Benn !!!!!!

      Something Mr Sayle mysteriously seems not to have noted.


    • Wild Bill says:

      I remember Sayle ‘joking’ that he would like to see Diana and Fergie hanging from lamposts.

    Seems the BBC has commissioned ‘The Dementia Smiths’, a comedy mashing up ‘Citizen Smith’ and ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ starring Alexei, Magic Gramps** and Groper Marr.

    Critics* are saying it is funnier than the Mash Report in the Nish era.

    So, straight to Dave and then sold to Pyongyang Sky.

    **Production note: the theme is ‘Heaven knows I’m miserable’, played by all three with Jez on spoons and Groper on a production assistant’s peachy buttox.

    I’m now getting a familiar feeling – it’s the BBCs Rabid attacks on president trump . It’s now the same thing with nut nut . There is now the same obsession . The need for the MSM to demonstrate its’ power and ability for ‘regime change ‘.

    NICOLA STURGEON will be quizzed by SNPs today as councils across Scotland argue they should receive £70m to pay for the national insurance hike.

    A council source told the Daily Record the Scottish Government has been given funding to pay for public sector bodies, but councils have not yet seen it.

    All 32 local authority leaders signed a letter insisting funding was being cut by £371million and are due to meet with the First Minister this month.

    Apparently it is the anniversary of the coup in America – the BBC – as usual use one of their democrat friendly beeboids followed by a former obama droid ( always ) – no contrary – republican view – no balance .

    But they can’t put lipstick on a pig and call it something else . How can they dress up an old dementing man who was implanted into the White House through mass fraud ?

    I still can’t believe Americans accepted it – but maybe they are as brainwashed by the MSM as many here…..

    Showing their true colours and one pink member

    Daily Telegraph columnists finally say enough is enough, bring out their true blue colours for a wave and dig in to defend British values: ‘Christina Hopkinson. Why I’ll never give up my conservatory‘; ‘Jason Isaacs. I won’t be stabbing J K Rowling in the back‘ – goodness me, what a brave reactionary backlash… that ought to stop the progressives in their tracks, see if it don’t!

    Meanwhile, on the other side of the political fence, the Guardian shows us the prize mouthpiece of the liberal left is not just some overgrown adolescent substitute for having a strop and flouncing off to one’s bedroom muttering to one’s parents I hate you: ‘Meet the man who read all 27,000 Marvel comics‘; ‘“Aaarrgghh!” Lorraine Kelly on tough interviews and toxic politicians

    The FT reveals it is not the great proponent of the non-state-controlled private business model we might have assumed it to be: ‘In defence of the BBC. Why we shouldn’t defund our public broadcaster

    At least the commuter giveaway freebie Metro has a headline that’s in line with its business model: ‘Return to the office. WFH over‘ – served as usual with our daily invite to enjoy a McPlant burger. Give the punters what they didn’t know they wanted, eh? Because in crony state capitalism the customer is always evil – shape up and go: ‘Beyond meat. Vegetarian Society vegan approved

    Elsewhere in their promotional material…

    British and Irish farmers are our most essential ingredient, and we’re proud to work with over 20,000 of them who supply the quality cuts for our burgers‘ (McDonalds) – so how come your advertising budget is clearly aimed at persuading the public to go veggie and put our meat farmers out of business?

    Could this be significant? ‘Food prices drive 5.4% hike in cost of living‘ (‘i’) – let them eat grass and cut out the middle cow?

    As usual the subject of fashion attracts the attention of Her Majesty’s formerly patriotic, latterly rather less manly than hitherto Times, our one-time newspaper of record: ‘Hanging out with the king of fashion

    And they tell us it’s a man’s world…

    Grown up dating advice from the ‘i’s opinion feature: ‘Try sober dating. It will change your love life (and the kissing’s great)‘ – that’s fine in a world of ideals but where would most of us be without our beer-goggles? And as our media has insisted and we’ve learned recenty – a party isn’t a party unless one BYOBs.

    There’s a dating caution for the ladies from the Daily Star: ‘If your bloke’s wearing aftershave we have some bad news for for you…‘ – of course all love life advice in our media tends to be from the female perspective.

    The ladies tend to do healthy fashionable activities like yoga and this new-fangled thing called wild swimming – only rather peculiar slightly creepy blokes want to crash those sort of girls’ parties – and there’s some advice about that from unexpected quarters: ‘“Mamit’s alert” Wild swimmers, beware middle-aged men in trunks‘ (Telegraph) – this of course after Matt Hancock was photographed going for a dip in the icy Serpantine. “Aaarrgghh!” or “Brrgghh!” (or both?) as Lorraine Kelly might exclaim when confronted with one of our most toxic of toxic politicians. We’ll leave Gina Coladangelo to keep the secrets of his aftershave. I guess at least the cold water will have cooled his ardour.

    Oh, and on the subject of politics, Boris Johnson’s much admired big majority just shrank by the tune of one pink member.

    Yes Marky – and very often people here – including me – muse about the similarities between the nut nut party and the socialists ….
    …….well if you were looking for real evidence of this the crossing of the floor by some nobody yesterday gives you this .

    Even with a red nut nut party one of the politicians he got elected finds the socialists more fitting than the nut nut party .

    But what would happen if nut nut did more Conservative policies – or even proper Right wing ones ? Would more red tories go sit with Barry gardiner ? Diane abbot ? Angie – who thinks they are scum ?


    • MarkyMark says:

      The Independent Group for Change, also known as Change UK, was a centrist, pro-European Union political party, founded in February 2019 and dissolved ten months later, shortly after all its MPs lost their seats in the 2019 general election. Its principal policy was support for a second referendum on European Union membership, in which it would campaign to remain in the EU. On economic issues it expressed a commitment to the social market economy.

      Three of the party’s MPs stood for re-election in the 2019 general election. None of them were re-elected, each losing to candidates from their former parties. On 19 December 2019, Soubry announced the party’s dissolution.

      he group was founded by MPs Luciana Berger, Ann Coffey, Mike Gapes, Chris Leslie, Gavin Shuker, Angela Smith and Chuka Umunna, who simultaneously announced their resignations from the Labour Party on 18 February 2019.


    • theisland says:

      I thought Patrick Christys’ (GBN) monologue yesterday was amusing.

      Boris hasn’t behaved like a Conservative, but as long as he’s in post there’s at least the chance he might do.

      As long as Operation Red Meat doesn’t turn into Operation Tofu then it looks like he’s moving in that direction, it looks like perhaps he’s realised that to be a successful Prime Minister in a Conservative country, you actually have to behave like a Conservative.

      Let’s just play the tape forward – So Boris goes, there’s a Tory leadership election, I don’t see how that’s won by a proper Conservative candidate, but whoever wins will get a bump in the polls and ride a wave of national optimism as the pandemic finishes and Britain emerges as the first country in Western Europe to declare victory over Coronavirus.

      Boosted by the best vaccine rollout scheme quite possibly anywhere in the world…or, put another way, they’d be riding high off the back of Boris Johnson’s successes.

      And then they go in to a General Election… can you imagine having to choose between Sunak and Starmer.

      Goodness me, that’s the human equivalent of spending a rainy Sunday afternoon deciding what shade of beige you want the bedside table in your spare room to be. It’s like looking at wet cardboard.


      • MarkyMark says:

        It’s always about choosing the worse candidate not the best one – which means the Conservatives have no conservatives. And Labour are all hard left.

    TOADY Watch #2 – sounds of desperation in her voice

    ‘Foghorn’ as she is known around here (Rachel Reeves MP) was interviewed concerning the PM and the present (in a) state of HMG. Maybe because I was initially brought up only listening to radio, maybe because I have a little radio presenting knowledge, maybe because I am a conservative and listen carefully to what the ‘opposition’ (incl. the BBC!) say but I think I noticed a sound of desperation in Foghorn’s voice. She was almost hyperventilating.


  17. vlad says:

    The BBC provides an absurdly upbeat (and biased) “whirlwind dash through Biden’s first year in office”, giving the impression of a dynamic and caring President who still has time to stop and pick a flower for his missus. Puke.

      No real sounds – just images with a few words. Omission is the greatest lie.


      “President Trump is having dinner with @SpeakerRyan tomorrow night, per the official White House schedule.”

      Is this a professional BBC approved response ‘Hmm – that will be a fun evening’ { twitter @KattyKayBBC} this is nothing but gossip, adds not value to the conversation, will it be fun or not? Is that sarcasm or not? Is it UK humour or not? How did she get the 100+ days show?

      Katty Kay should be on “100+ Days :: After BBC Announce Ludicrous Wages”

      Just like the BBC’s 100 DAYS programme, the humble BBC Tax Payers should ask the BBC for a “100 BBC DAYS PROGRAMME” covering – high wages, gender gap, employees not following BBC guidelines on sharing their opinions online, money spent facilitating pedophiles, employees hiding money in external companies … and more. Possibly enough for 365+ Days!

    TOADY Watch #3 – hmmnn, old beliefs die hard

    Think it was the Bee Lady but it may have been the A lady who in the look at newspaper frontapges at 7.40 a.m. who remarked that the DT was read by Conservative MPs. That is a traditional view. If I was a Tory MP, I would be reading the Guardian and (holding my nose to do it) the Daily Mirror in order to see what the opposition are up to.

  19. Fedup2 says:

    Try to game it . Labour fails to oust nut nut . The gray report is just gray and nothing more than more naughty step . He remains damaged goods but the bluster returns .

    . I reckon he will disarm the ‘energy crisis ‘ by fiddling the coming price ceiling control thing – plus chuck a load of cash at ‘every welfare case ‘ not that anyone would be grateful of course – it’s a ‘right ‘ to get other peoples’ Money .

    Anything he does now will be an accusation that he is doing it because of the parties.

    So where does the BBC / Labour go after that ? Bi elections ( meaningless ) local council elections ( low turn out ) … but where else?

    I suppose as usual it depends on events – whether putin goes for a big war – long messy war or no war …. Whether the Chinese pick a fight ( inevitable ) …whether there is a new improved Chinese virus …

    “However, it is not their function to breach the ministerial code in threatening to withdraw investments from Members of Parliaments’ constituencies which are funded from the public purse.

    Additionally, reports to me and others of members of staff at Number 10 Downing Street, special advisers, Government ministers and others encouraging the publication of stories in the press seeking to embarrass those who suspect lack in confidence in the Prime Minister is similarly unacceptable.

    The intimidation of a member of Parliament is a serious matter. Moreover, reports of which I’m aware would seem to constitute blackmail. As such it would be my general advice to colleagues to report such matters to the Speaker of the House of Commons and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. They’re also welcome to contact me at any time.”

    Labour MP Barry Gardiner received more than £400,000 of funding for his office over five years and looks to have been the largest recipient of money – although the effort to gain influence is alleged to have crossed party lines.

    Published20 hours ago


    Even in the event of a conflict with Russia over Ukraine or a clash with China over Taiwan, it is hard to imagine a patriotic surge strong enough to bring the country together. On the contrary, much like the coronavirus pandemic and January 6th insurrection, a military confrontation would more likely expose the nation’s fissures.

      It was the Democrats who whipped up the hate and division by refusing to accept Trump as President and made governing the US and running its business impossible…as well as massively polarising the nation on identity issues especially race….unforgiveably dividing the nation between blacks and whites once again.

      Heard BPUsher on Today telling us Biden was actually really really successful….and he was only unpopular in the polls because of right wing lies and Trump’s claims of a stolen election….funny how the BBC forgets that Clinton toured BBC studios claiming she only lost because the election was, er, stolen. Oh there was that little matter of Afghanistan but hey…he’s a great President who is not at all mentally incapable or incomptent….his vice president isn’t at all totally useless and not a little barking, and Pelosi is not just pure poison.

  28. digg says:

    Yet another snake crawls out of the nest. This time it’s William Wragg who has suggested that MP’s calling for Boris’s resignation should report to the police if they have come under pressure and may have felt blackmailed by the party.

    This is unprecedented.

    It is becoming clear that there exists a cohort of people in the Conservative Party who have harboured resentment against Boris and personal ambition for some time and they are now trying to jump on the bandwagon to further their careers.

    I think Boris should bring this out into the open and call Wragg to attend an investigation and demend he comes up with facts to back up his allegations including names, dates and all documentation, messages etc. he may have.

    These people know full well that the majority of the MSM will fall over themselves to back such smears if it means damaging the Tories so some form of collusion with the press is in play as well.

    This might turn out to be a really good thing for the Conservative party as these secret “sleepers” are now revealing themselves and can be henceforth identified as enemies of the party in the same way as spies.

    I am really beginning to suspect that these people are in reality left-wing moles and have been all along. It is interesting that many come from previously Northern Labour or Lib-Dem constituencies.

Leslie, Shuker and Smith had previously lost no-confidence motions brought by their Constituency Labour Parties.[4][5][6] Berger had two no-confidence motions brought against her but both were withdrawn.[7] Ian Murray planned to resign alongside the others but pulled out shortly before the launch.[8]

      Wragg is a self confessed hater of Johnson and opposed his election as leader from day one..

      I totally agree that there is now a concerted effort within the Tory party to oust Johnson by whatever means possible. David Davies outburst yesterday was premeditated and completely uncalled for, he could have quite easily had the same conversation with Johnson in private.

      BBC and SKY are now saying that sources within Downing Street are saying that Sue Gray has found damning evidence against Johnson and he has no chance of surviving.

      Angela Rayner is all over the BBC saying the accusation of bullying within the Tory Party is disgusting. But she conveniently forgets the foul behaviour of the Labour Party towards its Jewish members and anybody that opposed Corbyn…Same old staggering hypocrisy from Labour

        I have no idea what the BBC and Labour hope to achieve from all of this. Before all this crap started Labour were 10 points behind the Tories in the Polls….

        Labour have achieved there latest poll lead by purely introducing sleaze into the equation, nothing else, no jaw dropping wonderful policy.

        When the dust settles it will revert back tho the same old clueless Labour Party with no serious winning policies.

        And is it not strange that quotes damning Johnson appearing on the BBC webpages are all from self confessed Johnson haters, same apply’s to Sky

        I find the Labour Party and BBC’s plan of attack baffling..

      To start with, Wakeford is a complete @rshole, however… some of these rebel MPs are saying they’ve been threatened and have had inordinate pressure put on them to back Boris. “Certain things will be exposed” This has already happened to one rebel, I don’t doubt Boris’s friends in The Telegraph, Mail and Express will be only too pleased to do his dirty work.

      This is just the filthy politics you’d expect from these public school pillocks.

      I want to keep Bo-Jo at the present, but only because I’m really concerned who might take over. The thought of Gove or Hunt, please God, no!

      Boris has proven himself to be a pathetic wimp and is now so weak he’s actually doing what the real conservatives want for a change and not what Greta, Laura and Beth want.

      FFS, it’s taken long enough…

        and then delivered an Islington Fake-Green-Socialist one

    The BBC spent 4 years peddling the biggest of lies about Trump and Russia….oddly they don’t have the same concerns about a real love affair with Putin….

    ‘How Germany’s greed for gas, and another grubby deal with Moscow, could plunge Europe into an abyss’


    Germany has frequenty seemed to be in Putin’s pocket…under Merkel, born and raised in East Germany and an ardent Young Socialist and working there at the same time and in the same area as Putin when he was in the KGB as she pumped out propaganda for the Party, Germany allowed in a million aliens who don’t have Germany’s interests at heart, a million ‘refugees’ who were, for Putin, a weapon aimed at Germany, Merkel dumped Germany’s independent power supply for ‘green’ reasons but signed up to the gas pipeline from Russia thus giving Putin control of one of Germany’s major sources of fuel, Germany refused to adopt harsh sanctions on Russia and now has stopped arms going to Ukraine needed to defend itself against Russian aggression.

    Prima facie you could make out a good case that Merkel was the most successful agent the Russians ever had [bar the Democrats, US media and the BBC] and that in the Greens now sharing power in Germany we have people who would be welcomed with open arms by the old commies and marxists…as we know the greens, such as Extinction Rebellion, are Marxists first and green second…the old melons…green on the outside, red at heart.

    Weirdly the BBC has no interest in how Russia is subverting Europe…though, the BBC tells us, alleged parties in No10 are seriously damaging to UK democracy…unlike a national broadcaster which is corrupt, lying and dishonest and interferes in elections here and abroad trying to topple governments and leaders.

      Berlin, Germany 2016
      Arrested German spy was a onetime gay porn actor — and a secret Islamist {washingtonpost nov2016}
      “BERLIN — Two weeks ago, German intelligence agents noticed an unusual user in a chat room known as a digital hideout for Islamic militants. The man claimed to be one of them — and said he was a German spy. He was offering to help Islamists infiltrate his agency’s (In April 2016, the man began working for the BfV, assigned to monitoring potentially violent Islamists in Germany.) defenses to stage a strike.

      Agents lured him into a private chat, and he gave away so many details about the spy agency — and his own directives within it to thwart Islamists — that they quickly identified him, arresting the 51-year-old the next day. Only then would the extent of his double life become clear.

      It’s not only a rather bizarre, but also a quite scary, story that an agency, whose central role it is to engage in counterespionage, hired an Islamist who potentially had access to classified information, who might have even tried to spread Islamist propaganda and to recruit others to let themselves be hired by and possibly launch an attack”

          Another example is where imams preaching intolerance such as Anjem Choudary (preached hate 1999-2016) to his hundreds of worshippers (5 times a day, everyday), can all imams be checked if they are on welfare benefits, paid by UK workers, and these payments be stopped immediately. It is the community that needs to fund the imams if they want religious teachings, similar to how the Church of England was funded with donations in the past.

    Supposition, assumption, speculation, hypotheticals, conjecture, and pure unsubstantiated guesswork – most of it biased, slanted, and downright politically motivated – that’s just about all we get from our ‘trusted’ BBC network these days – whatever happened to simply ‘reporting the facts’.

    And the real problem is that all of this stuff is deviously portrayed by the BBC as being ‘the facts’ of a situation. There is a vast difference between ‘facts’ and ‘opinion’, which the BBC does not distinguish between. And we wonder why the populace hasn’t a clue as to what the truth is.

Along the way, the self-confessed ‘Johnny Ball cum Witchfinder General’ performs a successful detox on a Barbie doll, sees his dead cat become a certified nutritionist and probes the supposed medical qualifications of ‘Dr’ Gillian McKeith.

    US and UK MSM hit the brakes on reporting this, and get into reverse gear for Biden, faster than an Italian/French tank driver, and ‘mainsplain’ that he really didn’t say this…. sort of like an Obi Wan-Kenobi attempt at telling us that ‘this is not the meaning you are seeking’.

    However, the petition is being run on the website Change.org.

    If it had accrued even one-quarter of that number of signatures on the UK Parliament’s website, the Government would respond and consider it for a debate in the Commons.

    A stumbling block may have appeared through even that channel though, as the Government site’s rules make clear that although “petitions which reach 100,000 signatures are almost always debated”, they “must be about something that the Government or the House of Commons is directly responsible for”.

    After Abrams pointed out that some journalists say Trump is different and must be “covered differently by the media,” Koppel replied, “I think if you start drawing those distinctions, it’s very difficult to know where you stop drawing the distinction.

    A cancer can kill in six months. A major heart attack in less. A stroke may not be survived at all. A car accident or lack of attention from a driver or you as a pedestrian, again can end a life instantly. Psalm 90 verse 10 has God’s view on it: “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”

    Verse 12 of that Psalm is also a good one: “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”

    BBC Radio Legend Quits After 46 years Due To Diversity Quotas & Woke Interference in Much-Loved Show

    BBC Radio 4’s legendary “Quote… Unquote” has entertained audiences since 1976. However, in December 2021, fans were dismayed to discover that the show was at an end. On this week’s #SWYSI, Nigel Rees, the creator & host of “Quote… Unquote”, explains the events that led him to cancel his own show. He explains how the BBC’s diversity quotas for greater representation of women, ethnic minorities and disabled people began to affect the programme and how the BBC’s political correctness required him to amend his scripts, preventing the inclusion of familiar and harmless quotations, loved by generations.
