BBC unions' war on Tories

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by BPS666, Sep 14, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's from the Daily Mail, but if ever there was any doubt over the BBC's bias this should clear the argument up once and for all.

    BBC strikers to black out Cameron speech and disrupt spending review coverage | Mail Online

    If the BBC are on strike and not providing a service, do we have the right to withold licence fees for the period of the proposed strikes.

    What will the nation do without it's shit programme schedule while these tossers start hammering nails into their own coffin?
  2. Will the nation weep if Dave and Gideon are blanked from our screens? Um no. This strike action, if it goes ahead, will be wildly popular. Who in their right mind wishes to watch a couple of private schoolboys, one worth £40m (Dave) the other with a trust fund from papa worth £2m (Gideon) tell the nation they're making the poor and the middle class pay for the bankers' stupidity and venality?

    Impressive! The Left's meme that "it was all the Banker's fault" is being pressed home hard - despite the facts showing that it is complete and utter cobblers. Still, why let that stop a good sound bite, along with "Maggie destroyed British Industry" and "All public spending is good".

    Back in the real world - the CSR will reveal the true depths of the reductions needed to pay for monies that G Brown borrowed, and which we, and our children, and our grandchildren, will now have to pay off. The man was an utter financial incompetent, and we will be paying for his failures - all of us - for a very long time.

    And personally I'd rather have as Prime Minister someone with a bit of brains and common sense, rather than an unelected social misfit who has never done a hand's turn of work in his life.

  7. Hm. Gotta go with that too. Despite the cuts I prefer call me Dave over Broon or Bliar.
  8. Who gives a monkies, other news channels are available to watch smarmy CMD and his cohorts at their conference. Just a shame they are not doing the same to the other smarmy gits in the TUC, Labour and Libs
  9. Brilliant - The Daily Hate talking up a story about a rival news gathering organisation showing political bias!

    Made me laugh anyway.
  10. No mention of Labour's profligate spending there I see.
  11. If you're willing to share some of those "facts" that would be wonderful. In the meantime, here a photo for you to look at:

    I'm sorry, who gave the banks our money to bail them out? I could have sworn it was a Labour government that gave my money away, and not the Tories (mind you, speaking of the rich, which multi-millionaire has just received a peace medal in the US . . . I'll give you a clue, it's not David Cameron you daft ****).

    Which government was it that employed over 1 million extra civil servants on fat gold-plated pensions over 11 years, many of who were are are simply surplus to requirements, and cost this country (that's tax-payers chum) billions and billions? I honestly thought that was Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, both Labour, NOT the Conservatives or Limp Dems.

    I didn't hear a murmer from the Unions when all these dead-beats were being employed in non-jobs did you? Not a whisper along the lines of "Er, are you sure it's prudent Mr Brown, after all, it's bound to be really ****ing expensive. Are you sure the country can afford it?"

    Nah, not a bit of it. Now that the inevitable has happened and Labour have spent all the money and then printed another £200 billion (that's magic that is, it really does grow on trees), Cameron and the Limps are getting the blame for trying to fix it.
  14. It's called "socialism for the rich" my potty-mouthed friend. The banks were too big to fail. Britain was within 24 hours of the cash machines packing up.

    When you mention "dead-beats" sucking on the public tit, I assume you don't mean spending on the military, including massive gold-plated pensions, medical care and compensation for the injured, new aircraft carriers, Trident, and fighter aircraft designed to counter the Soviet threat?

    Or do you? Are you a CND peacenik with a bobble hat seeking to strip the nation's defences to fund the bankers' Porsches? Not very patriotic old son.

    Returning to the strikes, if the BBC unions have balloted within the law, given proper notice to the employer, jumped through the other hoops laid down by some of the most stringent industrial relations legislation in the developed world, and then blank our screens for a few hours, the world won't come to an end.

    Indeed, it'll be amusing the watch the Daily Mail huff and puff and people can switch channels and watch the idiot Kay Burley, reminding themselves just how God-awful Sky News is and how valuable the BBC.
