The BBC: are claims of political bias justified? Part 2.

Is there a resource for that?

Look up the Indian National Army. The Wikipedia page is a good jumping-off point as it details the names of the treacherous scumbags who helped the Japanese set it up.

A (very) quick search really only showed up a number of former INA people claiming war pensions many years after their service in that organisation, mostly being denied. Perhaps they should make a claim with Japan. Doubtless there's much more to it, but I have little sympathy, frankly; the ongoing nonsense about 'victims' in Northern Ireland has hardened my attitudes against claims of victimhood by people whose role was to create victims. The INA may have had some political credibility, but they lost it by taking the losing (and very, very wrong) side.

Seeing as the girl in question was 16 according to the article and her phone (mentioned in the 'piece') was released in 1999 then her mother must have had her in the early 80's.
I sincerly doubt her mother was even alive when the British relinquished control of India. So how the actual f**k are we to blame?!!!
Get with the programme, mate, it's because we're white and "privileged"!
 
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is frightened..."OUR BBC is under threat, she wails. She concludes (please make sure you have not got any tea in your mouth)...

"Without the BBC, Britishness will be soulless, heartless and mindless. Is that what you want?"

I think this self appointed conscience of the nation underestimates her own contribution to the state the BBC is in now.


I've just read this article in The Daily Mail about Geoff Boycott...


The first paragraph sums up the BBC quite concisely...

"Sir Geoffrey Boycott has criticised the BBC for 'sacrificing quality for equality' and holding its presenters to a standard of 'political correctness' that means they are 'frightened of saying anything'."

Any comments on this self-appointed 'conscience of the nation'.
The BBC has been digging it's own grave for years, they've been working to actively undermine the country and push a socialist agenda, they are no longer an apolitical organisation and should have all public funding rescinded.

And don't even start me on the pay, as a publicly funded body their employees should be considered civil servants, that means that the top three highest paid civil servants in the land are.

1: Gary Lineker
2: Zoe Ball
3: Graham Norton

That's your money paying for these idiots. Enough is enough, get rid.

Edited for accuracy...
 

So according to the BBC, the reason that people from the Indian subcontinent are racist towards black people is, white people. Unbelievable.

"Her mother's anti-blackness, informed by the British colonial system she had once lived under in Bangladesh, not only took it for granted that lighter skin was better it also accepted the worst stereotypes of black men."

I see it pushes the whole skin lightening is racist Western standard of beauty bollox again.

Deliberatly ignoring
Fact 1 Light skin in many places means you dont have to work in the sun doing manual labour = sign of wealth and privelage (As it was in Europe in napoleonic times )

Fact 2 - and lets be honest its ignored because it pisses on the narrative In the UK White people seek to darken their skin because holiday in sunny place = sign of wealth

Although im now worried having drawn attention to this sun tans will now be deemed cultural appropriation

"Red Lines" on R4 right now: a programme discussing whether impartiality in broadcasting is a GOOD THING.
Two guests, R4 head of programming (who he), and....James O'Brien, LBC's lefty. So far the Beeboid has droned out the usual platitudes ("we're ace we're awesome"etc); both are blaming politicians (right wing ones obvs) and O'Brien has just had a go about "false equivalence over climate change". Nothing so far about BBC liberal bias strangely...

Can't wait to hear O'Brien's views on Brexit coverage..... :rolleyes:

According to the Beeboid, The BBC Brexit coverage was "flawed", with far too much impartiality. O'Brien just stated "When the Daily Mail praised the BBC's Brexit coverage, alarm bells should have been ringing". Really?

YABber wailing about Britishness?

My irony meter just blew its rather large-capacity fuse.

What a drudge that woman is.

YABa YABa has now found a way to get herself back on the TV screens screeching her hate. She is becoming the champion of the BBC knowing that the Beeb are desperate for someone to say they are just wonderful. They would be hard pushed to find a more vile and venal person to do it.

Keep going... if you look at statuettes from Ancient Egyptian times, the men are always dark-skinned than the women of the same race, on account of the men working in the fields.

A former colleague of mine is Malaysian. We corresponded and kept each other's spirits up across lockdown.

Prior to full Restriction Orders, as the Malaysians call them, she was a committed distance runner. Her mother and sister were constantly criticising her for being too dark-skinned as a result of being out in the sun and doing half marathons with monotonous regularity.

The reason? She's between jobs and they're worried that her being too dark-skinned will negatively influence potential employers' choices.

Just to be clear: there's absolutely no colonial influence in that attitude. It's all home-grown.

The BBC should be bloody ashamed of itself. Unfortunately, the reverse is true: it sees itself as pushing boundaries and breaking preconceptions.

Ignorance is bliss.

We know what these BBC broadcasters get but what about the individuals who get paid via third party companies? I'm thinking about Hislop and Merton from Have I Got News for You and the fragrant Fiona Bruce, who some people believe is the highest paid 'star' at the BBC.

"Across the Red Line" has just finished; I must admit I zoned out for much of it, but one clip that pierced the PC fog was O'Brien criticising The BBC's coverage of Margaret Thatcher's death, whilst Beeboid waffled "well in the context of the 80s Thatcher was divisive but in the context of archive material saying what we really think would have looked odd".

OK I made the "Really think" up, but it was there between the lines...

However much people try to rewrite history, Thatcher won several elections because more people voted for her.

That's how it works.
 

France teacher attack: Seven people to attend court over Samuel Paty's death​


Makes it sound as though it is a voluntary thing - seven good citizens helping to keep the wheels of justice turning in the right direction rather than seven people accused of terrorism offences being hauled before the court.

I wonder what the headline would look like had it been seven white Britain First thugs appearing in court accused of terrorism rather than seven muslim extremists?

And the last paragraph:
Some French Muslims say they are frequent targets of racism and discrimination because of their faith - an issue that has long caused tension in the country.
...genuine question, because I don’t know: why?

Is it racism, is it because of the Muslim population’s insularity, or what?

Where is the counter-opinion?

One way or another, the BBC ends a report about a Muslim beheading someone with Muslims being the victims.
