    Well nice to be up first. Is it the same as winning Wimbledon? I wonder if the BBC, fresh from publicising Pride Month will keep going on about Chris Pincher MP over the weekend and on into next week? If they do, it will prove that they are totally anti-Conservative Party in Government.

      Seems BBC have axed a long serving middle aged Radio 2 host to replace him with yet another homosexual . They are going to lose even more listeners. I cant watch the News on BBC anymore.
      I do not have a problem with reasonable representation but that is not the case.

        Currently Sur Kurry and Fick Ange are doing the rainbow thing before a quick integrity change to meet some community leaders.

        Just saw the salary for said sub, and am tempted to consider at least claiming an ID.

        Couldn’t agree any more. Steve Wright In The Afternoon was and still is a NATIONAL institution. From the 80’s on radio 1 to today on radio poo. Given the fact that the BBC is in self destruct mode I’ll give it a month before the same comes of another NATIONAL institution, Mr Ken Bruce. Both of whom are the ONLY people on any BBC radio that I will listen to. These two white middle aged men have daily listening figures in the millions that any DJ could only dream of. But as is the way with the BBC all that matters is that anything that anyone who is white, male and middle aged will be erased from history. Regardless of their high audience figures and 30+ years in the radio. Proof if proof was ever needed of the BBC’s future agenda. If you’re white and straight then you have no plans in the future of the BBC. Regardless of the size of population that it represents.

        One person who will remain safe is the ever odious Jeremy Vine. This c**t exudes anti British and anti Boris pheromones from every orifice of his body on state sponsored national radio from 12-2pm every weekday for all to hear. With the blessings of the anti British and anti Boris BBC. Or as I now call them….

        Bollocks to the

        This has been my first post peeps and I’m delighted that this site shows the bile that this awful state sponsored TV company is spewing on our country.

        Long May BiasedBBC continue and expose the shameful way in which the BBC undermines our democracy.

          Silly G
          Welcome aboard – as a matter of interest – how did you find this site ?


          • SillyGrandad says:

            Hi Fedup2.

            I think it was years of frustration with the BBC and the way it was portraying itself as unbiased voice of the media when it has spent more years than I can remember BEING biased in a very uneasy and unhealthy way for the country. Thanks to the internet I came across the site and thought I wasn’t losing the plot. This is genuinely happening. If every example of their “unbiasedness” was posted on BiasedBBC we would need a live feed to keep up with the going’s on at the BBC propaganda machine!


            • Fedup2 says:

              Thanks – I was wondering if you found it on a search engine ….
              I sometimes with sites like this and ‘is the BBC biased ‘ deserve more publicity – even if that comes with the inevitable wokes , far lefties and the final dreg – the troll …


              • SillyGrandad says:

                I only found it having changed the search engine in my mobile phone settings from Google to DuckDuckGo.

                The likes of Google,etc are just as accountable as the Beeb for crimes to personal freedoms and democracy for the everyday person. I don’t know if many people realise just how manipulated our lives are by the leftist media.

                Or am I just SillyGrandad!

    My grandfathers’ regiment was in a reserve trench one day 1 of The Somme . They didn’t go over the top until day 2 when losses were ‘lighter ‘. I often think that’s one of the reasons I exist. My grandfather was quite old at the time – 21 … ….

Don’t call me by my surname ! and I’m identifying as a woman so I’m going home.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fed, I was at a Biggin Hill airshow one time for a ‘celebration’ or anniversary (think it was for the Battle of Britain) and as a specific item in the display there was a demo of a strafing run by a late Mk. Spitfire with supercharger and cannons. The display pilot went up to about ‘angels ten’ (had permission to go that height) and then turned to dive and strafe the bare runway where some dummy charges in strings had been laid. All was timed to perfection in the diplay.

      My awe turned to something close to terror when the Spit came screaming down, supercharger wailing like ten thousand banshees, cannons crackling with blanks and the dummy runway charges going off to replicate the impact of the shells. I was left shivering a little (the sun had gone in, too!) and thinking of what it must have been like for a young German conscript infantryman marching behind some tanks or lorries in France or Belgium toward the end of WW2.

      No wonder they threw away their weapons and headed for the nearest ditch or clump of trees.


      • Fedup2 says:

        I apologise – I didn’t mean to fly it so low ( a dream – and at 6’4” I think I’d need a hurricane or typhoon- or a mozzie – rather than a sports car spitfire – mk 20 I guess – with all than technology … ..

        Funny – I recall being on a ‘hill’ overlooking my local – north Weald watching a spitfire going through its ‘ paces after the show ended .quite something ..

        I was a kid and ‘too poor ‘to buy a ticket on the day …


        • Up2snuff says:

          Fed, yes the Spits were a little cramped but nowhere near as bad as the ME 109s. I remember listening to Adolf Galland in a conversation with one of our ‘Few’ (name escapes me – ran a pub down in Kent) and Galland cites that as one of several reasons why the Spits and Hurris were so successful in the BoB. The Spit was easy to fly (but not taxi on the ground) and the Hurricane was tougher (could take a lot of punishment) and was a much better gun platform. Am not much shorter than you but it was a dream for me, too.

          Funnily, I was thinking of the Tiffie this morning and struggling to remember its manufacturer. Was it HP? No, not the sauce or HewlettPackard. Now the Typhoon was a supreme tank buster. Must look it up. Hawker! Knew there was an ‘aitch’ in there somewhere. 🙂


          • Fedup2 says:

            Yes the Typhoon is my favourite closely followed by the mozzie

            …just caught a bit of comrade paul lenin lewis on the benefitsbox programme quizzing a tory minister about the need for a bigger money tree… ugh


            • Scroblene says:

              Uppers and Fed, this is very interesting as British planes tended to have the cockpits arranged with the legs more or less horizontal, and the pilots could manoevre better without blacking out!

              A great read is the story of Bob Stanford-Tuck,
              https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Fly_for_Your_Life.html?id=aZFmAAAACAAJ and a lot of this is explained!

              • Up2snuff says:

                Scrobie, think you have assisted my ageing memory a bit but with the wrong Robert. Think it was Bob Stanford Tuck who chatted with Adolf Galland, probably for a TV anniversary of BoB, maybe 40 years in 1981. Stanford-Tuck died in 1987. It could have been Robert Doe who was the landlord of a pub. Found it hard to get info on Bob Doe. Think he died this century.

    ‘Dyke: BBC is hideously white’

    The BBC is all but unwatchable and unlistenable and getting more so everday.

    And it is, as Greg Dyke might say, ‘hideously Asian’…..not sure why the BBC has an Asian Network when its main stations are overflowing with people of the Asian persuasion….even when they go off on leave they are replaced by another Asian.

    And now they dump Steve Wright from R2…about the only listenable programme on air with no preaching or twee, boring lecturing and hectoring or sanctimonious guff. Just entertainment…now to be replaced by someone too moronic even for R1. Pretty sure people will turn off in droves and won’t be replaced as I’m certain the BBC hopes by yoof looking to explore beyond R1.

    Probably no need to keep up any attacks on the evermore hopeless BBC…it seems to be doing a pretty good job of committing hari-kari itself.


    • JohnC says:


      It’s an amusing sign of the rampant hypocrisy of the BBC when their Asian network can be exclusively Asian (and 75% female) while the regular BBC for the 87% white people must also have a totally disproportionate number of BAME as well.

      I find it incredible that the entire media seem oblivious to how racist they are.

      Actually I don’t. They know exactly how racist it all is. But it’s all part of the Leftists groupthink agenda so they all lie and pretend they don’t. Truth is not important to the Left.


      • Ian Rushlow says:

        If it’s called the BBC Asian Network, why are there no Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipinos, Thais and others in the above picture?

        NB: the last time I checked, there were 68 registered ‘Asian’ (i.e. Indian sub-continent) TV and radio channels available in the UK. So why does the BBC deem it is necessary to run an openly racist radio station to cater for this particular demographic?


        • Up2snuff says:

          John and Ian, do they get many listeners?


          • JohnC says:

        *nationwide* ?
        from Oldham. Birmingham, Coventry, Oxford

        Then Luton, Chelmsford, Watford, Brighton, London, London, London, London

        They don’t come from nationwide
        They come from near London mostly
        And not from MOST of the country
        A hell of a lot of people live north of Oldham or west of Oxford.

        Likewise the name Asian is a fiction .. the vast majority of Asians do not come from South Indian : Pak/Bang/India/Sri Lanka

    An interesting perspective on sensationalist climate news stories:

    Will temperature records be broken today? You bet they will. By the end of the day you can be sure we’ll be bombarded with headlines along the lines of ‘Records tumble as Britain wilts’ – or, in the case of the Guardian, ‘Record-breaking heat heightens fears of climate crisis’. But don’t get too excited. Read on a little and you will find that the records which have been broken will seem just a little less dramatic than they at first appeared. The reason we keep having ‘record-breaking’ heat is not so much because of climate change – although rising global temperatures are slightly increasing the chances of records being broken – but because there are so many records to break. This is especially the case since it became fashionable for meteorologists to start using daily temperature records: the highest, or lowest, temperatures recorded in a particular location on a particular day of the year.

    The trouble is that this creates so many records it is inevitable they are being broken all the time. Last Sunday, the Observer ran the headline ‘US temperatures hit record levels as south west bakes in a heatwave’. If you thought that meant that America has just witnessed its highest temperatures ever, you were in for disappointment. It turned out that the records that had been equalled (not even broken) were the hottest 11 June in Phoenix, Arizona (equalling that measured on the same day in 1956), the hottest 11 June in Las Vegas (equalling 1956) and the hottest 11 June in Denver (equalling 2013).
    Let’s do a little sum. There are 19,495 incorporated cities and towns in the US, and there are 365 days of the year – or rather 366 days with temperature records. Multiply these together and you find there are 7.1 million daily temperature records in the US to beat.
    Moreover, reliable temperature records only go back a century or so. The chances of getting through an entire year without a number of these records being broken is negligible. In fact, you would expect an average of 194 such records to be broken every single day (a figure you can arrive at by dividing 7.1 million records by the 36,500 days of the past century).

    As for Britain, the Met Office uses a network of 270 automated weather stations around Britain capable of producing instant recordings. Ignoring all other weather stations which could potentially record their highest-ever temperature for 17 June today (with a slight delay), the automated network alone provides a potential for 98,550 daily weather records. No, it won’t mean ‘climate chaos’ if some of these fall – it will simply be an inevitable result of ‘record temperatures’ having become a debased currency.

    • Up2snuff says:

      Flotsam, unlikely. Having posted on TCW yesterday that south-westerly winds are cold because they come off a still cold Atlantic Ocean, I noticed with some considerable amusement that the BBC weather forecaster on R4 admitted this morning, in the pre-TOADY forecast, that temps were below average for this time of year due to the south-westerly wind blowing over a cold Atlantic ocean.

      “‘record temperatures’ having become a debased currency” – so true but they are already debased due to the poor siting of many of the recording stations (near lots of black tarmac and jet engine testing at Heathrow, for example) or lack of Stevenson screens for same.

    BBC publishes whistleblowing policy for staff and freelancers to raise concerns as part of its impartiality drive to ensure content is fair, accurate and unbiased


    The BBC has published a whistleblowing policy to provide staff and freelancers with a ‘confidential mechanism’ to raise concerns about activity at the broadcaster.

    It’s part of the broadcaster’s bid to update its impartiality plan – to ensure its content is fair, accurate and unbiased.
    The BBC’s10-point action plan was published in response to the Serota Review into the BBC’s governance and culture, which made a number of recommendations on improving editorial standards.

    It was triggered by the publication of Lord Dyson’s scathing report into the circumstances surrounding Martin Bashir’s 1995 Panorama interview with Diana, Princess of Wales.

    In the new progress report, the BBC says the whistleblowing policy aims to ‘encourage anyone with honestly-held concerns to report them’, including about editorial issues.
    It notes that ‘usually’ concerns can be resolved informally or formally through routes such as using the company’s management chain and other policies already in place including those for grievances and anti-bullying and harassment.

    However, it also says that if individuals are ‘not comfortable’ using these routes or if the concern raised remained unresolved, then the new policy ‘provides a range of alternative ways to report the issue’.

    The broadcaster has also updated how it handles fast-tracked complaints and created a new process for BBC-initiated editorial investigations.

    Another update in the plan is that programmes have been selected for the first internal content reviews, which will assess editorial standards and culture including impartiality, freedom of expression, diversity of voices, accuracy, fairness and trust.

    The programmes chosen are BBC Breakfast News, Countryfile and the morning radio news programmes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    The BBC said these selections have not been made because of particular impartiality concerns.

    The broadcaster also said that more than 24,000 people have completed ‘bespoke impartiality training’ since January 2021, with all new joiners required to complete it.

    Peter Johnston, BBC’s director for Northern Ireland, has been leading the implementation of the plan.

    The 1990s TV comedy Fast Show may possibly have predicted the Monkey Pox, the favourite feminist anthem and the girls wonder – do we still need shampoo?

    These days it is near axiomatic of the BBC online press line-up that the most concise, most snappy, hardest-hitting anti-Boris headline to come to hand gets promoted to top of the pile.

    Johnson hit by backlash for protecting ‘groping’ MP – that’s the proud to be Pride-endorsing left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper this morning – perhaps they’d like to see former Tory whip Chris Pincher publicly horse-whipped?

    The predominently female-readership Daily Mail frets how: ‘Groping’ Tory was too drunk to speak – you’ve nothing much to worry about there, luvs… he: was seen ‘staggering around the bar… lurching towards young men and propositioning them’

    One can’t help but recall the comedian Paul Whitehouse and his TV sketch show character the half-pickled, rambling old barrister Rowley Birkin QC of those labyrinthine gentlemen’s club fireside anecdotes. Tall tales punctuated by such exclamations as: “backstreets of Cairo, before the war”; “Her husband had been entombed in ice”; and the prescient “poisonous monkey!” all such shaggy dog tales invariably brought to a conclusion with the Chris Pincher-esque defence line “I’m afraid that I was very, very drunk”

    …private members club – scoffs the left-leaning ‘i’ – obviously not that private, was it? And as the stuff formerly of inuendo daily becomes common media parlance we wonder alternatively, where’s Kenneth Williams when we need him? Ooh, er, Matron…!

    Settle down in class! The ‘i’ goes pedagogical on us: What is the Carlton Club? From 19th century beginnings to popular haunt of Red Wall Tories. The private members club in St James’s was the scene of Chris Pincher’s alleged groping of two men

    From the DT enjoy

    The BBC is to scrutinise the impartiality of Countryfile as part of a review into editorial standards.

    The BBC One show has been at the centre of impartiality rows over farming, fox hunting and environmental issues.

    In its review, to be conducted in-house, the corporation will assess the programme’s impartiality, freedom of expression, diversity of voices, accuracy, fairness and trust.

    BBC Breakfast News and morning radio news programmes will also be subject to review at the same time.

    The BBC said other programmes would follow and insisted that Countryfile had not been selected “because of particular impartiality concerns”.

    However, sources acknowledged that it was a show which regularly prompted complaints.

    “Countryfile has to deal with some contentious issues that bring out differing views. This is the first of many programmes we’ll be looking at as part of our review process, but the kinds of issues Countryfile covers make it a good barometer for impartiality,” an insider said.

    The show has been accused of pro-Remainer bias over warnings that restrictions on seasonal migrant workers from the EU would have a detrimental effect on Britain’s fruit growing business.

    Its coverage of issues from hedgehog decline to badger culls and fox hunting have also drawn complaints, with some viewers believing that the show scapegoats farmers, and others claiming that it prioritises the voices of farmers over environmental and wildlife concerns.

    The review of Countryfile, BBC Breakfast and local news is part of a wider plan to “enhance standards”, the corporation said.

    In an update, the BBC said questions about impartiality had been included in the annual employee survey for the first time and that 94 per cent of staff who took part said they understood why impartiality is important.

    “There is now clearer promotion of the editorial guidelines on the BBC’s internal website to further understanding of them, and there is ongoing work with content teams to support more open discussion around editorial issues,” the BBC said.

    The corporation has also published details of its whistleblowing policy, providing staff and freelancers with a “confidential mechanism” to raise concerns.

    It follows Lord Dyson’s scathing report into the circumstances surrounding Martin Bashir’s 1995 Panorama interview with Diana, Princess of Wales.

    Earlier this week, the BBC agreed to pay “significant” damages to Mark Killick, the former Panorama journalist who first raised concerns about Bashir’s methods.

    Mr Killick first alerted the BBC to the existence of forged bank statements used to entice the Princess into sitting down with Bashir. Mr Killick said he was sacked for “disloyalty” as a result and then smeared by the broadcaster.ENDS

    I see the bbc are gearing up for a major scarefest regarding covid. The country was closed down for two years for the experiment in population obedience and I don’t know if they will fall for it again. If a new lockdown is announced, as far as I’m concerned they can shove it. Same if the authorities try to put fines my way. I’ll wear a mask in your shop if requested; it’s your entry policy after all. I don’t know how many vaccine doses were administered, but I reckon there is a case for saying that all they did was make a lot of loot for the chosen. If they open the partygate story again I will scream. Yes, Boris had a scotch egg and your granny died. One didn’t cause the other. Meanwhile, world war three, how’s that coming along? The bbc have dropped Zalensky pretty much now that the Ukranians aren’t the saints we were repeatedly told, particularly the Azov crew.

      I think the BBC have been embarassed a few times now by presenting quotes from Zelensky as factual headlines then finding out later he is lying through his teeth as he tries to draw NATO into the war.

      Don’t get me wrong : Russia are most definitely the bad guys here, but we should not be a mouthpiece for all Ukranian propaganda. It’s their war they have been brewing for years, not ours. Despite what the BBC tells us, much of the world doesn’t trust the West or the BBC one little bit and things like this are the reason why.

    Unique terror trial that changed France

    This is how the BBC cover one of the the worst terrorist attacks in Western history.

    1,300 words long and you have no idea what happened because they don’t go anywhere near it. Nor the motivation behind it. They’ve switched it to yet another 100% empathy report.

    “I would spend hours on the phone listening to one client telling me how she felt the day before. As lawyers, I’m not sure we’re prepared for this.”

    No you didn’t. 10 minutes at most.

    “This is the first time I’ve cried in court during a testimony,” Julia Courvoisier, another lawyer for victims, told us.

    It goes on and on with stuff like that without any mention or hint of the evil intentions of the people who did it.

    And to cap it all off, they actually print this from the defence lawyer of the terrorist:

    One of Abdeslam’s lawyers, Olivia Ronen, said his sentence was “what we would have asked for the real authors of the Bataclan attack, but it’s clear that we don’t have them and that someone has to be punished”.

    So even though he has been found guilty, the BBC want us to think he’s just a scape goat. Why did they put that in the article ?.

    Whenever I read articles like this I always think about the far-right terrorists who get their entire lives dissected and presented to show us how evil they are. Even when (as is usually the case) nobody died.

    TOADY Watch #1 – the BBC have thrown their lot in with Lacklustre Labour

    Now we know. The BBC have abandoned support for the LBGTQi Community, temporarily, to support the sucker leading the Lacklustre Labour Party and attack the Conservative Government over Chris Pincher MP. This morning it was a direct attack on the Prime Minister, personally (now there’s a surprise!) for a delay – despite the PM being otherwise occupied and out of the country – because he did not immediately and instantly withdraw the Conservative Whip from the unfortunate Mr Pincher ‘to make him stateless’ in Parliamentary terms.

    What the BBC fail to comment on, in their desire to attack Boris Johnson, is the current ‘death wish’ of Conservative MPs. Apparently, it was couple of Conservative MPs who complained about Mr Pincher. Neil Parish (Honiton & Tiverton) was ‘turned in’ by a Conservative MP sitting next to or near him in the House. The MP in Wakefield – Imran Ahmad Khan – self-destructed, a bit like Mr Pincher really, but was jailed after a Court case.

    This is of no interest to a supposed ‘news organisation’ like the BBC? Amazing!

  30. pugnazious says:

    The BBC is normally cheerleader in chief for devolution and regionalisation…it would like nothing better than to see the UK torn apart…..firstly of course because the EU would then move in and hoover up the bits, and second because the BBC hates ‘Britain’, British history and indeed, it seems, British people…if they’re hideously white….it would love to see Britain erased from the map and from history and the very DNA of its people ‘bred out’ by the swamping of Britain by a tidal wave of bame immigration….continuing Labour’s plan to ‘brown Britain’.

    Odd then that when the US Supreme Court devolves powers to individual States to decide on abortion rights the BBC is suddenly all for federal rule….centralised power…because of course it is not for democracy but it is for abortion…so it campaigns for one but not the other….or rather refuses to stay neutral and just, erm, report.

    I wonder if the Tories were in power in Scotland or Wales the BBC would be so keen on devolution then….you kind of suspect they would rather have a centralised Westminster Labour government controlling things and devolution or ‘independence’ could be quietly forgotten.

    Surely Halifax are anti-diversity and pro-intolerance

    In the general population there are diverse views on pronouns for staff.
    #1 one is that it is right to push staff into registering their pronouns
    #2 Another that is wrong to intimidate staff

    People that want to see men in dresses in their Halifax Bank, people who feel naturally intimidated by seeing men in dresses ..biological men impersonating biological women.

    The Halifax twitter operator should have said that the bank obeys UK laws and welcomes customers with a DIVERSITY of worldviews

    Two issues often come up here
    #1 How we can be more focussed and get action against the BBC
    #2 That commenters are straying off the topic of the BBC

    The thing is the BBC is not the problem
    Rather it is a sign of a deeper MALAISE that permeates wider
    .. to ITV, to Channel4, to Skynews
    to GBnews and TalkTV bulletins which are rubbish too
    .. cos they promote Guardian agendas whilst suppressing others
    eg Green and LGBT issues are news .. whereas grooming gang rapes and costs of mad green policies are not.

    A malaise that permeates wider charities and corps.
    Like the Halifax; also only pushing the Guardian Woke-supremacist worldview
    So being the very opposite of the diversity and tolerance they claim to be about.
    In the old days BBC discussions use to have a diversity of views on an argument ..now presenters seem to marshal insisting there is only ONE correct worldview.

    A malaise that permeates deeper as people realise our democracy is a sham ..your MP is likely to be an Oxford PPE graduate from London whether the locals vote Labour or Tory.
    A country that is turning into a banana republic as the elite rulers ban the exploitation of local resources and tie business down in woke rules, whilst keeping the borders wide open ..thus diluting the country’s resources.


    • StewGreen says:

      Oh I meant to say more, that the malaise also permeates into other platforms ie BigTech like Twitter/Youtube/Facebook

      and there are two characteristics
      #1 The whole of the world becomes a giant school playground with the Woke Supremacist being the School Bully Gang, they are able to assert that their way is the only way and be nasty about it. eg The vast majority of hatey tweets comes from lefties but they get away with it

      #2 Injustice and Double standards
      See the way above that Jordan Peterson is treated, non lefties get material banned without a proper explanation.
      Then see how one side get draconian punishment for minor things
      Yet for the other side the rule is “It’s OK when WE do it”

      And this permeates into the real courts
      : XR and BLM are able to get away with amazing things
      Yet on the other side anti-grooming gang protesters and anti-Covid lockdown protesters get the harsh treatment.

      Stew, you have really good points there. It is all media in the UK; print, radio and radio/tv. It seems we are all collectively – with the exception of commenters on here – reverting to childhood. Same is true in the US, maybe it started there and came over the Atlantic to infect the UK as many US ‘trends’ do. Just look at the meltdown in the USA over the Supreme Court ruling on abortion. Reaction from feminists? Have a ‘paddy’ like a four year old child when told they cannot have more sweets because they’ve had two packets and their lunch is coming up.

    LOL….Is the BBC biased? spots Roger Harrabin’s God-complex….what on earth are we going to do without him at the BBC directing the campaign to send us back to the Middle Ages?…surely the planet will now just burn….

    Harrabin has boasted about his campaigning….whilst pretending to be a reporter….

    ‘I have spent much of the last two decades of my journalistic life warning about the potential dangers of climate change’’

    He’s been at the beck and call of climate campaigning organisations, even taking money from them, and even set up his own campaign, the CMEP, to pressure media organisations to corrupt their reporting and programming by filling them with messaging about climate change…the Tyndall Centre from the UEA [remember them?] admits in leaked emails that they funded Harrabin and Co to try and silence critics of the climate narrative…

    ‘This is one reason why Tyndall is sponsoring the Cambridge Media/Environment Programme to starve this type of reporting at source.’

    Harrabin has had a disastrous and corrupting influence at the BBC and by default far beyond allowing government to get away without questions when imposing draconian, radical and extremist climate legislation almost without scrutiny.

    Unfortunately his departure won’t change things….the BBC’s Justin Rowlett is as bad if not worse as a climate change zealot…one who admires the Chinese way of doing business…by putting democracy on hold…and of course being free and easy with the truth….

    ‘‘I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.‘

    ‘Climate change is a divisive issue. I believe that it is a
    real threat and needs to be tackled. I know many people disagree. But whatever you believe you should be concerned about how our society responds to the issue because there is a growing view that mitigating climate change means we have to change our view of democracy.’’

    Not that he’s alone in his urge to suppress and oppress…for your own good of course….

    The ever quotable Andrew Marr:

    “..the final answer, frankly, is the vigorous use of state power to coerce and repress. It may be my Presbyterian background, but I firmly believe that repression can be a great, civilising instrument for good. Stamp hard on certain ‘natural’ beliefs for long enough and you can almost kill them off.”

    • Doublethinker says:

      That quote from Marr is something that Lenin or Stalin might have said. It is utterly incompatible with classical liberalism and with democracy.
      If Marr reflects the thinking of the modern left , the ‘liberal ‘ establishment , then they are quite prepared to impose their policies on the rest of us and are prepared to punish anyone who doesn’t agree or tries to resist.
      From what has happened in the USA andUK over the past few years I think that it is very likely that the elite plan to do away with any pretence at democracy in the foreseeable future. We are entering the post democratic era but most people don’t even realise it yet.
      But there is hope. The majority of folk haven’t yet been impacted by the elite’s plans but the net zero green nonsense will hit everyone hard and wake them up. In a few months everyone is going to be affected and they won’t accept it. But they will think that they can use the power of their vote to stop the nonsense. When they find that their votes are meaningless , that democracy is dead , they might be roused to fight back.
      I’m certain that if ordinary folk don’t push back the elite will happily construct their post democratic world where we must do what they tell us. The fight against greenish might be the last chance to save democracy.


      • G.W.F. says:

        So the elite are using greenish nonsense to hold on to the people. Yes, especially the Gretniks of the young.

      • Ian Rushlow says:

        Marr was a Maoist, known as ‘Red Andy’ at Cambridge, so he possibly meant his Maoist background rather than his Presbyterian one. His quote about ‘the vigorous use of state power to coerce and repress‘ is from his article in The Guardian (a sort of newspaper) in February 1999. I would no sooner defend him than I would deny that there are only two genders and that they derive from biological sex. However, the article is well worth reading for additional insights into his views on the White working class and the attitudes of the so-called elite.

    It hasn’t stopped Labour in the NW continuing the lie though that the government was behind the scheme when it was Labour all along, and when there is a change for the TV media (BBC SKY Channel 4) to hold Labour to account as they claim to do impartially they are nowhere to be seen.
