    Just checking the London Violence BBC page and see that within the last 2 days, 4 murders are reported.

    Notting Hill murder suspect:
    _127738238_screenshot2022-11-22145326.jpg.webp

    Kusai Al-Jundi, 24, from Harrow and Mohammed El-Abboud, 28 accused of murdering Louise Kam

    Lemar Rashawan in Brixton and an innocent Deliveroo driver as part of gang violence:
    _127640683_screenshot2022-11-15120218.png.webp

    And which one makes it to the front page ?.
    None of them.

    But the headline page for the entire world DOES have the story:

    ‘India gripped by gruesome ‘fridge murder”

    Which appears to be a BBC favourtie ‘men abusing women’ agenda item.

    It’s true beyond doubt : lives don’t matter at all to the left unless they can used for the agenda.

    Iran football manager Queiroz confronts BBC’s Shaimaa Khalil
    https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-middle-east-63750753

    ‘The correspondent had asked footballer Mehdi Taremi for his views on the protests in Iran.

    Afterwards, Mr Queiroz asked if it was fair for the player to have been asked a political question’

    The BBC think they are the worlds morality police now. Dirty tricks like this are why so much of the rest of the world hate the BBC. That player (who is probably not very bright) would have been damned whatever answer he gave. Either by his boss or the BBC.

    But I blame OFCOM for giving the BBC so much slack, they feel confident to do things like this. They are an absolute disgrace.

    The most serious aspect of this is that with Iran – if one of its’ footballers says the wrong thing ‘off the cuff ‘ then it can mean – at worse – a death sentence . Now the BBC might not care because it gives them a headline – but it’s a big price to pay ….

    Time to ‘bang up ‘ another BBC spy in Iran again …..

    After 12 years of Tory government we have been turned into a third world country. Funny how thr BBC has not raised this?
    Any Tory MPs left in this government?

    He raised corruption, treatment of migrant workers and illegal homosexuality

      Rather bizarrely, the BBC refers to this person as ‘they’ and ‘them’, as though there are more than one. If something is neither masculine or feminine, then it is neutral and should be referred to as ‘it’. This is simply the grammar of the English language and does not carry any sort of value judgement. Or perhaps the problem arises as the BBC is employing too many people who are not native speakers of the language.

    I’m guessing that most of us at Biased BBC will have been pretty horrified, but not overly surprised, by our recent immigration figures…

    Just to re-cap, for my own benefit…what we’ve heard is that over one million came to Blighty legally in one calendar year…and about half that number left. We get something close to 300,000 “students” coming over…and they’re now allowed to bring their families with them…Well why not? The more the merrier.

    We have had, so far, a further 42,000 dinghy dodging illegals…that we know about…and God only knows how many that we don’t know about…

    While all this mayhem continues unabated, we’ve got our own indigenous homeless problem. Many of these people are army veterans, sleeping in shop doorways and park benches. While they’re shivering in doorways, wrapped up in discarded newspapers to keep the November chill at bay, across the road at the “Alhambra Hotel” Mustafa Fagg and his merry men are tucking into a four course, halal-based meal, with all the trimmings, watching a bit of telly and then snuggling down in a nice warm bed.

        I wonder if folks would be interested in registering for a ‘rotten borough’. It is legal to be on multiple electoral registers (but only vote in one). Once the roll got up to 50,000 voters then it could have candidates.

        The candidates would only be eligible if they did not belong to any political party i.e. they were independent.

    A short trip from two-for-one to three-in-one edition

    Our BBC likes to make two picks from the press headlines so as to construct their own daily online newspaper review… er… headline.

    Red top tabloid readers would recognise this formula as a double whammy; advertising freesheet fans might see it as a bogoff or perhaps a twofor, whilst a few old school right-leaning broadsheet habitues might notice a brace.

    Newspaper headlines: ‘Student visa crackdown’ and record migrant levels (BBC) – and there dear reader you have a fine example of the bad news emerging coupled with the government’s rushed rhetorical response – which we all know damned well translates to absolutely nothing will be done about the problem of hyper immigration.

    Credit where credit is due – our BBC quite rightly scare quotes the notion of a ‘crackdown’ – as if?

    Hyper – it’s gone well beyond mass- immigration, that’s simply a problem our political class do not see as a problem.

    The formerly patriotic Times, which leans closet-Blairite liberal wet Tory posing in a blue rosette, is just the place for the government to lay some shoddy smokescreen over the shocking inward migration numbers.

    Foreign students face ban from universities – a doozy of a headline at one stroke placating short attention span conservatives cognisant of the fact hundreds of post drop register then dropout colleges across Britain act as easy visa factories – while simultaneously the self-same headline may still interest by aggravation that newfound lefty liberal Times college educated readership into some righteous morning outrage. Especially since ‘top’ universities will apparently be exempt.

    All foreign students will also have new restrictions on bringing family members with them after the number of dependents almost tripled in a year – what is this – bring your old mum to college month?

    Now tell me it wasn’t beyond the wit of man (or the civil service) to realise that this student dependents loop hole wouldn’t be exploited big time.

    Part of the government distraction policy here is to set off some crying, whingeing and gnashing of teeth on the left.

    The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper is here to oblige and gifts the government the false notion of a crackdown being underway: Student visa crackdown set to spark major cabinet row – really?

    Migration is in iteslf one of those carefully crafted misnomers. It implies seasonal travel to and from.

    Speaking of which…

    Airport security rules on liquids and laptops could be lifted in UK in 2024 (Guardian)

    The female interest ‘i’ newspaper is on it: Opinion. Now can I take my lubricant on holiday? Rebecca Reid

    Don’t worry about it, luv. Mr AsI assumes his Greek island bicycle hire shop will have a drop of 3-in-one they can lend him.

    Having my early morning “two minutes of hate” (The bbc usually provide the backdrop) and there’s an article “Has Putin’s war failed?”. It features such gems as –
    “Repeated Russian claims of Nazis and genocide in eastern Ukraine were completely unfounded”
    “His declared aim was to protect people subjected to what he called eight years of bullying and genocide by Ukraine’s government – claims which have no basis in evidence.”
    In the interest of balance, a close friend of mine regularly spends half an hour watching the R-T news feed, and if it’s all fabricated by Russia then it’s one hell of a convincing hoax.
    This is the sort of blatant propaganda being fed to the British populace by the bbc. I don’t defend Russia at all, but to continually paint the ukranians as innocent folk goes far beyond well-intentioned bias.

    Troubling news and rumours about the US rail strike comming out of America and the Dems showing their true evil nature once again.

    A one day rail strike in the US isn’t like a one day strike here. Legislation in the US means any hazardous cargo cannot be left in any unsecured situation therefore all hazardous cargo has to be moved to secure locations prior to any strike action and then retreived from there making it an onerous task.

    Now the US Dems have woken up and realised the scale of the issue they (Pete Buttigieg) are talking about forcing workers back to work at the barrel of a gun.

    but it’s all very kind and equal !

        Today
        BBC Radio 4, Monday 13 December

        In an item about the rise in infections caused by Omicron and its impact on the NHS we said: ‘NHS England says between 20 and 30 per cent of critical care beds are occupied by Covid patients…. three quarters of those haven’t been vaccinated.’

        We also said that the ‘vast majority’ of those in critical care are unvaccinated.

        In fact, the most recent figures from the Intensive Care and National Audit Research Centre (ICNARC) show that 51% of intensive care patients in England with Covid in November were vaccinated and 48% were not.

    How many times have we heard from the pro vaccinators that somebody has had covid and been in a terrible state but has had the vaccine. They then say it would have been much worse if they had not been vaccinated.

    Is there any truth in this?
    It’s easy to say it but I would imagine both vaccinated and unvaccinated catch Covid and both groups will have symptoms varying from mild to severe and death.

    Could it be that you will be affected the same whether vaccinated or not and having he vaccine makes no difference to the severity of the symptoms.

    I doubt the msm will come out with anything about this and we have to wait for the likes of GB News to find out the truth as nobody else will tell us.

    Here’s a question:

    The 350 million on the bus and those asking “where is it?”
    How much are the nhs getting now compared to before we ‘left’
    Is it more or less than the £350 million per week and if it’s more why don’t people say so when remoaners ask it.

      The jabbers cheerily sent an appointment for a another go at it …. nothing by way of explanation – he found out via Internet search and the clinic were reticent and slope-y-shouldered about admitting it.

    Do the BBC like him?

    “.. despite facing several scandals over his recent behaviour.”

    No😀

    Tempted to write to ECU, Timmeh!, OFCOM and DCMS (and whichever dim bulb is notionally unincharge of it) to ask why BBC Complaints has been, is, and will always be a deliberately labyrinthine entity, unfit for any purpose,.

    But I answered my own question.

    And would just get banned again.

    Propaganda backed by censorship is ugly and dangerous.

      YOUR COMPLAINT:

      President Trump’s 100 Days President Biden’s 0 Day 

      Dear Winston Smith in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth,

      You covered President Trump’s 100 Days and then produced a Beyond 100 Days to hold power to account.

      Why have you not done the same for President Biden to hold power to account?

      ‘Omission is the greatest form of lie.’

      The absurdist climate alarmists just don’t care about spectacular lying at the moment. If you blub into the selfie camera or have a histrionic tizzy – as far as the BBC works – that makes the climate catastrophe that much more legitimate.

      Lies are means to an end …

    I see the BBC report that sharing something called deep porn fakes is to be made illegal.

    Never heard of this word before.
    So I experimented on Google, typing in the name of a famous BBC presenter – say Laura -Kuenssberg and indicating Porn Pictures.

    Pease don’t do this you will be shocked and outraged by the result delivered in less than 10 seconds.

      Does it say what I will have to do with my collection of ‘deep porn fakes ‘? My collection of ‘the ladies of the BBC’ is a personal treasure ….
      It’s Friday so let’s ban something ….. apparently that censorship bill will be nodded through in a few days

      I know the terrible case of the 14 year old girl who killed herself after watching too many self ham sites – but censoring only goes one way .
      And if kids want to find such stuff on the net they ll find it …. But I feel sorry for parents trying to shield their kids from nasty stuff ….

    AUSTERITY

    This is the same Arts Council England that likes to spaff taxpayer millions on projects that tell straight white men to “pass the power“, gave over £215,000 in Covid funding to a solo drag act, and is expected to spend around £1.34 billion in grants in the three years to 2026. If the whole point of this hearing is to pry into the Council’s funding decisions, there are a few obvious questions to ask…

    Just watched the Iran v Wales highlights on the BBC’S youtube channel and couldn’t help but notice the appalling picture quality. The resolution was in a pitiful 360p (which translates to 480 by 360 ratio). Compare this to the highlights on the ITV youtube channel which are in a high definition 1080p. Untold billions in license fee extortion money and this is the best picture quality they can serve up?

      Don’t like defending bbc, but it’s probably
      YouTube’s behaviour, which shows newly uploaded videos at low resolution at first and eventually works up to 1080 after an hour or whatever

    Qatar-2022-Stadiums@2x-100.jpg?w=770&resize=770%2C770

    Al Janoub Stadium has been designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Its design was inspired by the hulls of the traditional dhow pearl fishing boats, further reflected by the use of timber and traditional materials. The symmetrical roof composed of three shells is the standout feature. Following the release of the designs, people soon starting noting the resemblance of the roof to female genitalia, but Zaha Hadid denied any comparisons.

    I recall some mention of US supply chain issues over a bridge closure – but Biden pressuring Jussie over auto plants closures actually sounds about right since Joe is bought and paid for by The Auto Workers Union who were pivotal aiui in excluding Tesla from The White House EV jamboree a while back.

    If the BBC mention this I will eat one of my hats.

      The vote on a general amnesty on twitter came back with an overwhelming ‘yes ‘ ( not using the Biden method ) which could mean the likes of Tommy Robinson will get their voice back again .
      I’m sure the blue Labour online censorship act will cancel him though ….

      ..guardian reports that another blue labour minister / Mp is to stand down next election ( as opposed to being smacked in the moosh by the vengeful electorate ) – no loss – they’ll all be gone .
      For some reason apparently 12 red labour MPs are going too – maybe part of a bail condition …

    Odd, or not, how the Springer doesn’t investigate left-wing hijacking of so much media and the way it spreads lies and corrupts politics. The BBC is obsessed wth ‘social media’ so-called disinformation, at least that it judges to be from the Right, but when it comes to the Left’s exploitation of social media platforms the BBC turns a blind eye…and no doubt will be commenting adversely on this….it of course has already made plain its disapproval of Musk’s take-over and direction of travel…ie….encouraging ‘free-speech’ rather than an echo chamber for the Left….
