“If whoever fired that missile in Ukraine had fired it instead at the beach in Gaza, the media could have knocked off for an early lunch”. George Galloway, 19th July 2014.
The pro-Israel bias 0f the BBC continues. It has clearly been stung by the massive outcry at its appalling reporting and it has improved some coverage but it is completely blanking the massive protests today in London and other British cities.
The BBC has lost its right to the licence fee. It can no longer be our national broadcaster All the good work that it does is extinguished by this disgraceful episode.
While the children of Gaza are murdered by the Nazionist war criminals, the BBC fat cats simper and supplicate to the monstrous pariah state that is Israel. They have betrayed Britain. James Harding and Tony Hall must go.
An email to my stuffed shirt, honorary Bullingdon Club member, self-serving and utterly useless MP, Richard Drax.

Dear Mr Drax,
Theresa May is a monster. The coalition government conspires with the opposition to deprive us of our few remaining liberties. Files on Westminster paedophiles and illegal rendition via Diegio Garcia are mysteriously “lost”. The UK government and its propaganda mouthpiece, the BBC, flagrantly defies 65 UN resolutions and supports the Israeli genocide of Palestine.
Do you even begin to realise the contempt that you self-serving and corrupt bunch of criminals are held in?
Time to roll out the guillotines in Parliament Square.
Any MP with a shred of honour would resign from this disgraced House of Corruption.
The criminal Israeli regime continues to brutalise the people of Palestine. Be they Arab, Jew or Christian, if they stand in the way of the zionist hegemony they will be smashed and persecuted. Their daughters will be raped, their sons will be tortured, their babies will have their heads smashed against walls by IDF stormtroopers.
Meanwhile, to the UK’s everlasting disgrace, the BBC continues to favour the Israeli war machine against the children of Palestine. The terrible murder of three Israeli teenagers is given wall to wall coverage while the month-old murder of two Palestinian children by the IDF is ignored. The murder of six further young Palestinians in the past week is also overlooked by our national broadcaster and only when a ninth Palestinian child is abducted, tortured and executed can they finally acknowledge what is going on.
Who is running BBC News? Do they have a Mossad gun to their head?
This was Nigel Farage at his very best: the man of the people, relaxed but determined, fair minded but firm, tolerant but strong, patriotic but generous. Really it couldn’t have gone any better.
All the vile abuse hurled at him by the small men and women of the media and the political establishment, the disgraceful BBC bias, the blatant hypocrisy of Tory and Labour that ferment conflict within our country every day. Nigel dealt with them all with a smile and good grace.
He is stronger than ever. The UKIP policies that he hinted at seem sensible and popular. Protest votes will be hardening into solid support. Britain now despises the identikit Cameron, Miliband, Duncan Smith, Balls and the rest. The chattering idiots at the Guardian and the BBC and the Bullingdon Club associate members at the Telegraph and the Times. They’re all as out of touch as each other. The Fleet Street Mafia is as disgraced as the members of the cabinet and shadow cabinet. We want none of you anymore!
It is absolutely ridiculous that anyone can be judged or penalised for holding their arm across their chest. The Football Association is a disgrace, promoting and encouraging such ridiculous political correctness. Shame on its weakness and paranoia for how it might be seen of it did not bend to the media hype.
Similarly, except for his closest allies, every commentator is scared to speak up for the difficult situation of Lord Rennard, probably a bit of a fool but undoubtedly the victim of manipulative and sanctimonious women, hiding behind their self-righteous feminist victimhood. There are two sides to this story.
All this is diversion, away from the issues that really matter to people. It feels suspiciously like rice pudding, sweet, satisfying, comforting. It’s what BBC and Sky do while the real news goes on in the background. You think this is what’s important or deserves your attention. Believe me, it doesn’t!
I have seen nothing so shameful, crass and ignorant as the behaviour of staff in the BBC newsroom during the Queen’s visit today.
I saw not one bow, curtsey, nor even a bow of the head as Her Majesty passed by. Instead, in vulgar and embarrassing fashion virtually everyone was pointing their mobile phone, gawping, intruding, forgetting themselves. ‘Chav’ seems the perfect moniker for such individuals.
If this is the behaviour of well educated people at the world’s leading news organisation at the pinnacle of British cultural life then we are sadly diminished.
In order to protect patient confidentiality and against the sort of sabotage which is so often seen in the cannabis campaign, we are not releasing details of who we are meeting or when. Suffice to say that this breakthrough has been achieved by many months of behind the scenes work, meetings with MPs, doctors and the courageous efforts of several CLEAR members.
The focus is to permit medicinal users access to the products of Bedrocan, the Dutch government’s official producer of medicinal cannabis. We now have written confirmation from both the Department of Health and the Home Office that doctors are fully entitled to write prescriptions for Bedrocan products, just as they are for any other unlicensed medicine.
The next stage is to obtain an import licence from the Home Office, either a personal import licence for each individual or a licence for a pharmacist to import and dispense. The recent re-scheduling of Sativex makes our case for obtaining these licences much stronger.
We are not there yet but we are now closer than we have ever been to enabling legal access to medicinal cannabis. The delegation will be meeting face to face with people who can make this happen.
We also have a BBC documentary producer with whom we have been working for a few months concerning a programme to be broadcast in the autumn. This visit to parliament could form an important part of the programme.
If you are interested in being considered as a member of the delegation, please email me with a concise description of yourself, your condition and your history of medicinal cannabis use: email@example.com
Bias in favour of Israel
Following the bus attack in Tel Aviv today the only voices heard on BBC News are in support of Israel. Three interviews come from representatives of the Zionist authorities and one from a British tourist clearly supportive of the Israeli policy of oppression and brutality against Gaza. Then William Hague condemning the bombing. Why no one condemning the massive increase in Israeli attacks?
Your presenters portray this bus bomb as an escalation likely to endanger peace negotiations when in the last 12 hours Israel has massively increased its attacks on Gaza. All the time you fail to point out the grossly disproportionate violence from Israel and although your report the facts (5 Israeli deaths, 150 Palestinian deaths) you skip over this in editorialising as if there is equality of responsibility.
Israel is a brutal, oppressive regime in breach of 64 UN resolutions, regularly murdering many times more Palestinians than are killed by its resistance. You fail entirely to remind viewers of this context and of the illegal nature of Israeli policy
An extraordinary and bizarre event took place tonight between 10.30 pm and 10.35 pm.
Newsnight was running its lead story about Panorama’s story about Newsnight not doing a story about Jimmy Saville.
Five minutes later Panorama started its story about Newsnight not doing a story about Jimmy Saville.
Meanwhile on BBC News the lead story was Panorama, Newsnight, Panorama on Newsnight, Newsnight on Panorama on Newsnight.
You have to give the BBC due credit and respect.
Clearly bad things took place on its premises and under its auspices but the absurd level of guilt by association or even suspicion is pernicious and evil. MPs are grandstanding over it, including John Whittingdale, chair of the Culture select committee, whose politicking and pre-judgement of his own inquiry is disgraceful. Obviously the print media and other broadcasters are exploiting it for their own ends but I admire the BBC’s handling of the scandal. Any other media organisation would have covered it up.
The BBC is its own fiercest critic and I congratulate it for that.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing and a dreadfully cruel thing for those who had the best intentions.
