So the BBC is in the pocket of the EU, what a surprise and I wonder how many other pockets there are.

While, as an independent company, they are free to apply for additional work and funds from other sources, it does create a possible conflict of Interest.

I would say if they have nothing to hide, why they did not report this as a news worthy item when the project money was first awarded to them.

They are always eager to do this in respect of other organisations, so the apparent secrecy could be a worrying aspect.


BBC impartiality or not, yes or no.

Political Concern

 Media Lens reminds us that two BBC insiders – former senior BBC figures – would dispute the frequently brandished depiction of BBC ‘impartiality’.

Greg Dyke, a former BBC director general, believes that: ‘The BBC is part of a “conspiracy” preventing the “radical changes” needed to UK democracy.’ He says that a parliamentary commission should look into the ‘whole political system’, adding that ‘I fear it will never happen because I fear the political class will stop it.’

And Sir Michael Lyons, former chairman of the BBC Trust , said earlier this year that there had been ‘some quite extraordinary attacks’ on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn by the BBC.

The first paragraphs of their latest analysis, ‘BBC Propaganda Watch: Tell-Tale Signs That Slip Through The Cracks’ are summarised here.

In a recent BBC News interview following the death of Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro. Dr Denise Baden, Associate Professor…

Is this an invasion of privacy and while the BBC says the inspectors will not be able to spy on other internet browsing habits of viewers, do you actually believe them.

With effect from 1 September 2016 a licience will be required, should you not already have one, if you are watching TV programmes on BBC iPlayer

Stop Making Sense

BBCThe BBC is to spy on internet users in their homes by deploying a new generation of Wi-Fi detection vans to identify those illicitly watching its programmes online.

The Telegraph can disclose that from next month, the BBC vans will fan out across the country capturing information from private Wi-Fi networks in homes to “sniff out” those who have not paid the licence fee.

The corporation has been given legal dispensation to use the new technology, which is typically only available to crime-fighting agencies, to enforce the new requirement that people watching BBC programmes via the iPlayer must have a TV licence.

The disclosure will lead to fears about invasion of privacy and follows years of concern over the heavy-handed approach of the BBC towards those suspected of not paying the licence fee. However, the BBC insists that its inspectors will not be able to spy on other…

Beastrabban\'s Weblog

I briefly caught a snippet about this on the local news programme for the Bristol area on the Beeb, Points West. The video was posted on Youtube by the girl’s mothers, Sharon Forbes. It show her daughter, Savannah, tackling a speaker from National Action, who clearly says he’s in favour of an all-White Britain. Sharon Forbes then says that her daughter’s mixed-race, and so what would he and his party do with her? Deport her? The Nazi doesn’t have an answer, except to say, ‘She looks White to me?’ He then claims that Britain has always been a White country, to which Forbes says, ‘No.’ Eventually, the youthful Fascist retreats, and the girl and her mother are clapped and applauded by the crowd.

The Youtube video was put up four days ago, but it’s taken this time for the incident to make it on to the local news. I…
