    BBC’s Newsnight to be cut back as part of savings plan

    “BBC News and Current Affairs CEO Deborah Turness said the broadcaster was “in a tough financial climate”

    Shame 🙂

    BBC reporting on yet another Labour run Council going into bankruptcy without acknowledging the elephant in the room, this time it’s Nottingham…


    Lots of mumbling about having to cut back services but narry a mention of the dire effects on the budgets of these Councils of their manic quests to shoe-horn in expensive and unproductive mass layers of diversity specialists plus token recruitment purely in the name of “balance” in the staff ratio, whatever the value these extra heads might or might not provide.

    My belief is that the mass recruitment of these people is not to provide a better service to ratepayers but to ensure the Council has the “right” (or should I say “left”) political balance and weight.

    Councils are the first to feel the financial effects of this artificial “structural balance” and my guess is that it’s only a matter of time before private Companies start to go the same way as they lose valuable productive staff to “placements”.

      Your taxes at work…

      Well gosh… the main sponsors of Robin Hood Energy (purportedly £38,000,000 down the crapper) go bust.

      Plenty of companies don’t make a profit in their first few years, and Robin Hood Energy was no exception. The losses started small, but continued to grow year on year, before eventually posting losses of £23.1 million in financial year 2018-19), which the company described as ‘disappointing’.

      The funding from the council took many forms. The most straightforward was loans. The city council borrowed money from the Public Works Loan Board (effectively the Government) and then loaned it to the company at lower-than-market interest rates. The council made a small profit from these loans.

      The second was parent company guarantees. These effectively say if anything goes wrong at RHE, then the council (as the parent company) will provide support.

      There was a reason the Bliar & Co. took councillor surcharging off the statute books.


      The Public Works Loan Board boss (Tony Caplin a 2003 Labour appointed commissioner) was made bankrupt in 2012 took 2 years to eject him from the gig.

    Anyone else here sick to the back teeth of hearing about f@cking muzzies and their various bloody whinges ?

    Or is it just me ?

    There is no need for Rwanda there are plenty of remote Scottish islands where they can march up and down with their bloody placards all day long if they like, every f@cking weekend

    we could also give them a fake war memorial they can desecrate to their hearts content, and a kfc and kebab shop

    BBC sez…

    “Hamas says a 10-month-old baby held hostage in Gaza, Kfir Bibas, was killed in an air strike, along with his mother and brother. Israel says it is checking the claim”


    No doubt that any Israeli hostage they cannot produce will have been killed in an Israeli air-strike.

    Meanwhile I dread to think what really happened to this family at the hands of thugs who have already proven their blood-thirstiness.

    The families husband who is also listed as an hostage is not mentioned, no doubt already finished off, maybe another Israeli air-strike?


  5. Zephir says:

    Another Israeli airstrike

    “Fears were sparked in London’s central shopping district after “three loud bangs” were heard.

    Crowds could be seen gathering in confusion as police vehicles were spotted on Bond Street – with a controlled explosion reportedly being held nearby”

    I don’t watch I’m a celebrity but from the various reports Nigel is playing a blinder.

    They thought they could humiliate him with the eating challenge but he simply chomped his way through it.
    They saw he was becoming more popular so they restricted his on air time but lots of people complained about it.

    They miss out playing what must have been a very interesting story about Trump that Nigel told the housemates.

    People are seeing how itv are trying to manipulate how he is seen but lots of truths are coming out and many more viewers are warming to him.

    Like the government on Brexit or Coutts on debanking, Nigel is winning and they don’t know what to do about it.
    He doesn’t have to do much, just being himself is winning many admirers when they see he’s not the person the msm make him out to be.

    It’s another plan that has backfired against the wokies who don’t realise how out of touch they are.
    The British don’t like unfair play and are seeing through the left’s schemes to try and do him down.

    Too many white people- affecting mental health- BBC radio


    He’s concerned there aren’t Muslim voices at the top of the editorial process. Should there be? Any concern Druid voices aren’t represented? He then conflates his religion with race and says it makes him ever so sad to not see “people like me” all sat round the table.
    Presumably, once the situations are reversed, if white people raise similar objections, they will be sacked for racism and a range of phobias.

    Article from ‘The Times’ – headlined…

    “40% of civil servants ‘consider quitting’ over WFH edict”

  13. JohnC says:


    I see the BBC are eagerly reporting things the UN have been saying today. Let’s look at a couple:

    ‘UNRWA aims to scale up response in Gaza’
    ‘If the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees leaves the Gaza Strip, the “last glimpse of hope the Palestinians have would disappear”, the head of that agency has told the BBC.’
    ‘However, Philippe Lazzarini, commissioner-general of UNRWA, says the agency “has no intention to leave the Gaza Strip”.’

    So what is the point of saying the first bit at all ?. The UN get $3.4 BILLION every year. Damn right they will stay there.

    ‘Guterres: Sexual violence by Hamas must be investigated’
    ‘Speaking of the remaining hostages being held in Gaza, Guterres said that all of them “must be released immediately and unconditionally”.’
    “Until then”, he added, “they must be treated humanely and (humanitarian organisation) the ICRC must be allowed to visit them.”

    Ah good. That’s that sorted then. Let’s see how many of his ‘must’s actually happen and lets see what this idiot does when they aren’t. Which will be nothing at all.

    Perhaps the UN should discontinue all aid until the hostages are released.

    This whole affair has been very useful for blowing some smoke away so we can see:

    1) What evil scum Hamas and the Gazans who support them really are.
    2) That the BBC are anti-semetic, terrorist supporting liars who don’t care one bit how horrifically anyone was murdered if it doesn;t suit their agenda.
    3) The UN are run by useless leftist w*nkers. Like the BBC. They have now infiltrated every public organisation there is like a cancer.

    Further down we get:
    ‘MSF chief says medical teams unable to leave Jenin hospital’
    Goodness. Medics locked up up in the hospital !!.

    Oh, hang on. Buried in the article we get: ‘unable to leave the Khalil Suleiman hospital in Jenin for more than two hours, frustrating their attempts to help the wounded.

    Perhaps you should have asked him why BBC. And why did you add that bit on the end ?.


    • richard D says:


      ‘Speaking of the remaining hostages being held in Gaza, Guterres said that all of them “must be released immediately and unconditionally”.’
      “Until then”, he added, “they must be treated humanely and (humanitarian organisation) the ICRC must be allowed to visit them.”

      Anybody else notice the ‘ever-so-slight’ backtrack between the first – very firm (” all of them “must be released immediately and unconditionally”) statement, and the second ‘weasel-worded’ alternative ?

      Typical Gutierres, typical UN, typical cowardice and incompetence to even be in charge of a whelk stall on St Kilda…. never mind claiming to be some sort of world-wide authority on any issue.

      “According to Crumrin, however, the most important reason for the decline in the back-to-Africa movement was that the “vast majority of those who were meant to colonize did not wish to leave.

    I don’t know much about the ‘jungle ‘ show but will it be fixed to ensure Farage doesn’t win it ? Does it matter ?


    • JohnC says:

      More important than that Fed is how it is demonstrating the treatment of the Right by the Left.

      Nigel is being treated like a lower form of citizen who should be looked down upon as if he is inferior. They are now plotting how to destroy him.

      I’ve said many times that the Left are the new Nazis and this is an excellent example of their fascism. This is how it starts : they have been running this campaign against the Right for years now to the point we have people like that stupid black woman who think everybody hates – and should hate – Farage. And it has been getting much worse, especially by the BBC who will no longer report any positive news concerning the Right or any negative stuff concerning their far-Left agenda.

      I’m sure the Nazi persecution of the Jews started small and gradually got worse and worse. We have many Lefties who now hate Farage and all of his friends simply because the likes of the BBC, Guardian and ITV tell them they should.

      Just imagine what all those people inciting that hate actually WANT to do to the likes of Farage and Tommy Robinson. Then imagine a world where they had absolute power to do it without fear of consequences. You don’t need to try very hard because we’ve already seen it.

    Brilliant speech by Christian Terhes MEP at the International Crisis Summit IV:


    “We were in a totalitarian regime 30-some years ago in Eastern Europe or up to 30-some years ago in Eastern Europe. But you guys in the West, you were not. The problem is that we are witnessing right now the installation of a new totalitarian regime all across the globe.”

      “Someone asked me yesterday why I threw away a decent career in comedy, for the sake of speaking out.
      Well, it’s because this country is being subsumed by grim authoritarian communist fuckery.
      And if people like me don’t kick against it, then my seven year old daughter has a very shit life to look forward to.
      And when I made the decision to play my part in having a child, it was under the moral condition that I would do everything I could to give her a happy life.
      Using whatever shitty little platform I’d built through my comedy to tell the truth about what’s happening- and thereby sabotaging my own vaguely successful career- wasn’t much of a choice as far as I’m concerned, but something of a moral necessity.
      It was about choosing not to be a cowardly, money-grubbing, little cunt.
      And, of course, for the resourceful, there’s always more than one way to earn a living, so it doesn’t feel like I’ve thrown away so very much in fact.

    Apparently, the police have warned us that over the Christmas period we’re all at a heightened threat of “terrorism”.
    They use the term like they’re describing a potential bout of bad weather. “Could be a chance of snow”…”Might be a storm brewing”…

    Just look at the prevaricating, mealy-mouthed language used by our useless coppers and gutless media…”Due to the problems in Gaza, some people might become radicalised”…”there are tensions”…Lone wolves”…”they might use a car or a knife”…”they may be known or unknown”

    But, there’s a bloody great pachyderm squatting on the sofa and the authorities are straining every sinew to ignore this huge, wrinkled interloper.

    At no point do they explicitly explain the real reason for this heightened terrorist threat. It’s not from the mythical “far right”…it’s not Hindus, Catholics or Buddhists, it’s not Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Jews or the Jesuits.

    It’s Muslims. It’s always Muslims…

    The FT yesterday carried a story about the climate junket in Doha, and the following unbelievable hypocrisy and squandering by the elites.

    It is reported that King Charles the stupid will have his own private jet to travel there
    Rishi Sunak will also have his own private Jet
    The lord high Marxist David Camoron will also have his own private jet.

    No explanation is given as to why all the delegates cannot fly there on a chartered aircraft ensuring privacy and security, nor why three private jets are required when these numpties are not irreplacable and 2 of them almost certainly will be within the next 12 months anyway!

    The level of waste here is extraordinary, it’s beyond squandering, it is utter profligacy, and yet more evidence of an elite class who no longer care about the people nor how hypocritical and wasteful their actions are.

    Pretty remeniscent of those European Socialist regimes of around 100 years ago where those at the top enjoyed splendor and those lower down starved and died in the wars the Socialists created.

    One Danny cohen – a creature of the BBC – writes the following about the anti semitism of the BBC – particularly the Hamas Asia network —-

    STARTS The scale of the BBC’s failings on the Israel-Hamas war now constitutes a genuine crisis for our national broadcaster. To lose the widespread support of one of Britain’s minority communities in such a profound way is a significant stain on the BBC’s reputation and its role as our national broadcaster.

    The latest revelations, that presenters on the BBC’s Asian Network have been posting incendiary, deeply offensive and anti-Israel material online since Oct 7 is both shocking in its own right and symptomatic of the wider failures that are now engulfing the BBC.

    Since the Hamas terrorist attacks, BBC presenters whose salaries are paid with licence fees and who have large online followings have accused Israel of genocide, ethnic cleansing and war crimes – and have encouraged people to attend marches at which anti-Semitism has been on open display.

    Of the many toxic posts that have come to light, one sticks in my mind as particularly disturbing. On Oct 7, Noreen Khan tweeted a disputed graphic showing the relative territories governed by Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the past decades.

    Ms Khan chose to post this on the day of the pogrom in Israel.

    As families were being burnt alive in their homes, women raped and children kidnapped, Khan felt that this was not a moment for sympathy for Jewish suffering, but an opportunity for a BBC employee to use her platform to make an anti-Israel statement. In doing so she came perilously close to attempting to justify horrific acts of terrorism still taking place at that very time.

    To make matters worse, the issue is not simply one of individual BBC employees expressing bias and hate towards Israel, but rather of widespread senior management failure.

    Lost control
    Ms Khan’s tweet remained on her social media page for anyone to come across. This is despite BBC management, including Lorna Clarke, the BBC’s director of music, being warned on more than one occasion by a concerned listener about the content being posted by BBC Asian Network presenters. Ms Khan and her fellow presenters clearly felt no pressure to delete their social media posts and BBC managers did not do anything effective to stop them.

    This means that senior management is either complicit in anti-Israel bias at the BBC or has lost control of their own staff and the content they produce. Whichever is the case it leaves the BBC’s reputation for impartiality in tatters.

    The BBC’s Asian Network is far from alone in discrediting the corporation since Oct 7. To take two recent examples, Caroline Hawley, the BBC’s diplomatic correspondent, has repeatedly tweeted unbalanced, seemingly unverified claims from Gaza, while Jeremy Bowen, the international editor of BBC News, has admitted his coverage of the explosion at Al-Ahli hospital was “wrong” but that he “doesn’t regret one thing”. You could not find a better example of institutional arrogance than Mr Bowen’s review of his own reporting.

    Meanwhile, the BBC’s Arabic service has produced different versions of its output, the Arab language version of a story omitting significant details about the terrorist organisation Hamas. It makes one wonder how much of BBC Arabic’s reporting in recent weeks is similarly biased and anti-Israel. A translation study of the bureau’s Arabic-language output since Oct 7 would be instructive.

    Given these almost daily examples of anti-Israel bias, it must be extremely tough at the moment for Jewish people working at the BBC. Their distress would doubtless have been intensified by the BBC’s highest-paid presenter, Gary Lineker, choosing to retweet material accusing Israel of genocide. In Mr Lineker’s case, it is notable that his concern for humanity did not extend to speaking out on Oct 7 when Jews were being barbarically massacred on a scale not seen since the Holocaust.

    Duty of care
    Yet again, what is even more striking is the failure of BBC management to do anything about it. It appears that no action is being taken against Mr Lineker. In light of this – and the toxic content being pumped out by BBC Asian Network presenters – it is clear that the latest social media guidelines issued by the director-general of the BBC just weeks ago are not fit for purpose.

    The BBC must ask itself whether it is failing in its duty of care towards its Jewish employees. Is it possible for them to feel like they are working in a safe and neutral environment when BBC management fails them so badly? An investigation into anti-Semitism within the BBC is now necessary, alongside a further review of its social media guidelines and the need for an independent assessment of the corporation’s Israel output.

    This all amounts to a profound system failure at our national broadcaster that impacts both the BBC’s credibility and the safety and welfare of Britain’s Jewish community. The BBC is contributing to an atmosphere in the UK in which many Jewish people do not feel safe.

    The stain on the BBC’s reputation will be hard to repair. Sadly, it appears that the BBC’s management are either unwilling or unable to really get to grips with the scale of the problem that they face.ENDS

      Mentioned before but the Real Face of The Cubicle Gardens slipped one past the minders.

      Radio 5 Live presenter Nihal Arthanayake told a diversity conference that the “overwhelmingly white” BBC had given him mental health issues. Not sure if he’s spotted it, but the whole country is “overwhelmingly white” and if he has anxiety probs it may be due to something else. Like being pretty average at his job.

      Popping the racist tool’s name in Twitter reveals a bumper crop of #ccbgb

      So, to address this, in true W1A style the BBC is to be renamed the Nihal Network and all colleagues beyond a certain colour will be met by thugees in the lifts as they leave.

      The scale of profligate spending and waste in Local Authorities is staggering. They have moved away from providing the people in their Boroughs with services to being self serving. A substantial wedge of resources is splashed on sorting themselves out. Salaries and conditions of employment have spiralled out of control. At one time people worked in the public sector for the rewards of status and job satisfaction. These days taxpayers monies are simply thrown in the trough for staff to gorge on. Diversity, equality and Woke causes are just another excuse to splash the Cash.
      Cost control has been thrown to the winds, everything LA’s do seems to cost two to three times what it should.
      All Authorities have issues although the Labour ones are generally the worst.

    The decline in the people who have the sheer grit and patience to sit through Newsnight is no surprise to many of us ,Dear old Kirsty Squark is way past her sell buy date and the lack of diversity is alarming! Its not really for me to help out with advice but l would snap up the Ghanain news presenter Akrobeto, if l was hiring at the Bbc,he is in a league of his own and would treble viewing figures in the blink of an eye.

    I recommend everybody to look up Akrobeto on YouTube, a truly amazing talent…up there with none other than Nick Robinson.

          Quite Fed. And considering it was the whole driving force of the riots, it is a candidate for the most outrageous lie by omission from the BBC this year.

          Maybe we should organise our own annual awards for such achievements where we can log them in special threads for each category of BBC lie-technique through the year then get to vote in December.

          On a side note, I see Bowen has been completely removed from reporting about Gaza. Too little too late BBC. The damage was done and he should have been sacked.

        When the migrants pass through the Strait of Gibraltar, the French president orders troops to the south and addresses the nation with his plan to repel them. However, in the middle of the address, he breaks down, demanding the troops simply follow their consciences instead. Most of the troops immediately desert their posts and join the civilians as they flee north, and the south is quickly overrun by the migrants. Some of the last troops to stand their ground take refuge in a small village, along with Calguès, an old man who has chosen to remain at his home, and Hamadura, a Westernized Indian who is terrified of his “filthy, brutish” countrymen and prides himself on having more in common with whites than Indians. The troops in this village, a total of nineteen Frenchmen and one Indian, surrounded by what they deem “occupied territory”, remain the last defense of Western values and “Free France” against the immigrants.

      There was an absolutely desperate BBC report the other day on cold weather. Talk about trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.
      From North Shields I think, the snowflake presenter was giving it large about the bad weather and there were literally a handful of snow flakes still on the ground behind her, not suite yet melted.

      Presumably she wasn’t yet born in January 1982, and certainly not in early 1963.


  39. digg says:

    The BBC and The Guardian with identical wording…

    Three “people” have been killed in Jerusalem by gunmen….

    Meanwhile “It comes a day after two “Palestinians” were killed…

    It’s quite obviously company policy at both to deliberately minimise any mention of Jewish casualties.


    • JohnC says:

      They are desperately trying to create equivalence between the indiscriminate and deliberate murder by Hamas terrorists and the unintentional collateral damage by Israel when attacking hamas who are using civilians as human shields.

      It’s morally bankrupt and shows the disgusting ethics of the Left when they are pushing their own agenda. The BBC and The Guardian are two cheeks of the same obscene arse.

    Premier League teams are playing footballers facing abuse claims

    Welcome to the fascist world of the Left and the BBC.

    People are guilty until proven innocent when it suits them. By people I mean ‘males’ and ‘usually white’.

    Mind you, the author does look like your standard misandrist:
    Looking at her ‘muckrack’ credits, it’s all she does. Misandrist with a capital M.

    I particularly like the picture they chose to go with the article of 4 footballers. All are white. Which must be a shot-in-a-million going by the last UK game I saw on TV. Which could only be described as ‘hideously black’.

    As we approach COP 28, being held in the region with by a long way the highest per capita greenhouse gas emissions, 4-6 times higher than the UK who, perversely and seditiously, the BBC like to guilt into ‘showing a lead’, I note that yesterday the UK generated 60% of its electricity from gas, and 10% from wind, there being a cold winter anticyclone currently. Gas central heating not by definition included.

    An inconvenient truth somewhat lacking reportage from the BBC’s very own eco-warriior, Justin Rowlatt.

    World at one

    Interview with someone who they described as ‘ Definately not a spokesman for Hamas ( freedom fighters ) ….. he wants a cease fire – he claimed that the 7 October ‘action ‘ wasn’t meant to be a slaughter – just taking soldiers prisoner …..

    He also seems to suggest some of the ‘action’ was committed by non Hamas civilians …..

    So in summary IDF get back to work – must be a lot longer target list now …
