Yet Again BBC Caught Promoting Left Wing Propaganda…

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson (R) listens as the father of a young girl, who is being treated in the Acorn childrens' ward, expresses his anger over hospital waiting times during his visit to Whipps Cross University Hospital in Leytonstone, east London on September 18, 2019.

A Labour activist has ambushed Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson at a hospital and ranted at him about NHS cuts. Using your skill and judgement see if you can spot the news story cunningly hidden in that sentence.

While you’re trying to work out, here is how the BBC promoted it:

And here is how the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg chose to spin it:

Have you worked out where the news story is yet?

Ha ha. Fooled you! There is, of course, no news story here whatsoever. It’s what used to be known in the trade — in the days when the journalistic industry maintained professional standards — as a ‘dog bites man’ story.

Scrap the licence fee.

With these documentaries, the BBC has lost any claim to impartiality

Its treatment of the Nazis, and of George Soros, shows that the channel is no longer interested in objectivity.

Because the rise of the Nazis is a topic so rarely mentioned these days, least of all in schools, the BBC has produced a helpful three-part explainer of that title (BBC2, Mondays) showing why the story of Hitler is even more relevant today than it was in the 1930s.

Back in the day, the BBC might have been content to strive for an objective take on the subject, perhaps with a voiceover by Samuel West and lots of period footage. But the danger of that approach, the BBC has since realised, is that it runs the risk of viewers making up their own minds what to think. Some of them might not be aware, for example, of the obvious parallels between Hitler, Nigel Farage, Donald Trump, Brexit and, to a lesser extent, Michael Gove.

Pure hagiography – the BBC’s Extinction Rebellion: Last Chance To Save The World?

Plus: season three of Stranger Things is self-indulgent and twee – more Scooby-Doo than Alien.

I’m beginning to feel like Donald Sutherland in Invasion of the Body Snatchers: almost the last person on Earth who hasn’t been assimilated by the evil, shapeshifting, floral pod creatures from outer space.

Losing my comrade Christopher Booker the other day didn’t help. Nor did turning to the once robustly sceptical Sun newspaper this morning to find a spread on how to cut your carbon footprint and recycle. The final ‘reeeee!’ moment (fans of the movie will get the reference) will no doubt come when I next bump into Matt Ridley and he tells me: ‘We really must heed the wise things the Prince of Wales and Greta Thunberg are telling us about climate change!’

Three Years Ago We Voted Brexit. Here’s the Real Reason We Haven’t Yet Got It…

Brexit

Today is the third anniversary of the EU Referendum. Like all Brexiteers, I can remember exactly where I was when I heard the result. And more importantly, I remember exactly how it felt.

It felt as people must have done on VE Day. (Quite appropriate, really, given what the E in VE Day stands for…)

It felt how that preeminent knight of the Crusades Reynald de Chatillon must have felt on his release after years in the lightless, airless, foetid dungeons of Aleppo.

It felt like that time I chatted up a Norwegian barmaid well above my pay grade and instead of being turned down I got lucky.

The BBC Is the Enemy of Britain and British Values

How depressing it would be if the typical Muslim in Britain today were embodied by Abdullah Patel?

Abdullah is the imam at a mosque in Gloucester; doesn’t speak English that well; has a burning sense of grievance about a thing he calls “Islamophobia”; is a fan of Jeremy Corbyn because he scares “Zionist’s” [sic]; thinks Gaza is “the modern day Auschwitz”; warns women who have been sexually assaulted that “it takes two to tango”; supports CAGE (the organisation which had a research director who once described the ISIS killer Jihadi John as “a beautiful young man”); is deputy headteacher of a heavily criticised school with an Islamic ethos and curriculum…

Call me old-fashioned but I don’t much like the cut of Abdullah’s jib. Chippy, whiny, cry-bullying, over-eager to play the Muslim card at every opportunity, sympathetic — at the very least — to terrorist sympathisers, casually misogynistic, antisemitic (though no doubt he’d gloss it with euphemism anti-Zionist), and probably thick as mince, Abdullah is emblematic of so much that is wrong with cultural cohesion in Britain today.

The BBC Leadership Debate Had a Clear Winner – Farage’s Campaign to Scrap the TV Licence Fee

There was one clear winner of last night’s BBC leadership debate: Nigel Farage’s campaign to abolish the TV licence fee.

The BBC is a disgrace, an embarrassment, a monstrosity. Its politics are so relentlessly woke, its bias so shameless, its hatred of the values shared perhaps by the vast majority of its viewers so flagrant, that it is quite incapable of serving its claimed purpose as the nation’s source of fair and balanced information.

Any properly functioning democracy would have pulled the plug on such a malign and corrupting institution long ago. As it reminded us once again last night, the BBC exerts a powerful and pernicious effect on Britain’s body politic, exploiting its near-total domination of broadcast media first to dictate the terms of the political debate and second to push them in an ever-leftwards direction. (The Overton Window.)

It’s the BBC’s leftwards enlargement of the Overton Window we have to thank for the fact that we’ve got an antisemitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist on the brink of government; the reason that, for at least ten years now, is the Conservative government has not dared to do anything remotely conservative; the reason, largely, that people feel like strangers in their own country and no longer feel able to speak their minds.

That dog’s breakfast of a politics debate we endured last night was the very exemplar of all these failings.

Farage Demands Police Action over BBC Comic Jo Brand’s Battery Acid Joke

Wouldn’t it be just hilarious if instead of throwing milkshakesleftist agitators instead threw battery acid at their opponents?

Actually, no, BBC-promoted comedienne Jo Brand, it really, really wouldn’t. But that didn’t stop her making light of the subject on BBC Radio 4.

She joked:

“Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate, and I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?

That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy, but I think milk shakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.”

I quite understand why Nigel Farage — one of the victims of milkshake attacks — has called for police intervention over Brand’s appallingly ill-considered joke.

Sunday night on the Beeb was an orgy of virtue-signalling

Plus: why a cultish New Zealand horror-comedy fly-on-the-wall mockumentary about vampire housemates is worth your time.

After its new costume drama You Go, Girl! (Sundays) about how amazing, empowered and better-than-men women are, especially if they are lesbians, the BBC ran its first ever Nike ad. At least that’s what I thought initially: rap music, moody shots of athletes, very high production values. Then I saw they were all grim-faced women and the word ‘RISE’ in flames and I thought: ‘Big new drama series? About girls who’ve been sucked into this very strict Christian cult, a bit like the Handmaid’s Tale, maybe?’ Then I noticed they were all wearing football kit and kicking balls around, and went back to my original Nike idea. Finally came the big reveal. It said: ‘#CHANGE THE GAME. FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2019.’

Olly Robbins Killed Brexit. Belgian Citizenship Is the Least He Deserves

Britain's chief Brexit negotiator Olly Robbins leaves the Cabinet Office on Whitehall in London on March 22, 2019. - Prime Minister Theresa May returned to Britain vowing to make "every effort" to win over MPs opposed to her EU divorce deal, hours after securing a delay to Brexit from bloc …

I’m just having a quick whip-round to which I know many readers will be eager to contribute: it’s to raise money to help Olly Robbins begin a new life in Belgium.

Robbins, as you know, is the senior civil servant — Theresa May’s chief Brexit adviser — who has done so much to try to help ensure that Brexit doesn’t happen and that Britain remains stuck in the European Union till the end of time.

Now we know why: it turns out Robbins’s secret ambition is to live at the very heart of the EU project as a Belgian citizen.

We learn this from a BBC4 behind-the-scenes documentary about Brexit seen from the perspective of the EU’s negotiators.

BBC and Attenborough Accused of Fake News Misinformation on ‘Climate Change: The Facts’

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - AUGUST 06: Host Sir David Attenborough speaks during the 'First Life With David Attenborough' during the Discovery Communications portion of the 2010 Summer TCA pres tour held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 6, 2010 in Beverly Hills, California.

The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) has made a formal complaint to the BBC about the series of gross inaccuracies in its recent documentary Climate Change: The Facts. As wags have quipped, the programme presented by Sir David Attenborough was so riddled with errors it really should have been called Climate: Change The Facts. Now the GWPF has written to the BBC Complaints department listing just a few of them. The letter can be read here.

According to the GPWF, the programme “went far beyond its remit to present the facts about climate change, instead broadcasting a highly politicised manifesto in favour of renewable energy and unjustified alarm.”
