Is the BBC's coverage of Jeremy Corbyn on Russia, Bizarre?

As ever Craig at isthebbcbiased has the BBC bang to rights over their coverage of Jeremy Corbyn's comments.

'The BBC - unlike pretty much everyone else - is presenting this as a case of Jeremy Corbyn saying something and only getting a hostile response from the Conservatives.

This is frankly beyond bizarre. Labour MPs have been falling over themselves this afternoon to signal their profound disagreement with their leader. They've been publicly siding with the Government in the House of Commons. To present this as just some 'jeering' Tories responding to Jeremy Corbyn's attacks on Tory cuts is terrible reporting.

Not one else - not even the Guardian - is behaving like this. What is the BBC playing at?'

I think Craig, like most sensible people, know exactly what the BBC is playing at - getting a Labour government as soon as possible.

Russian spy statement: Theresa May setting out UK action per BBC News

Even the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC can't hide Jeremy Corbyn's Russia problem today. This report includes the criticisms being made of Jeremy Corbyn albeit no headlines and not on the news front page of course. Here's just one of those criticisms:

'Conservative MP Mark Francois says Theresa May's response today "had flashes of the Iron Lady about it".He accuses Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of being "a CND badge wearing apologist for the Russian state".'

One wonders what Jeremy Corbyn would have to do for the BBC to go on the attack. Associate with Islamists, not enough. Call the terrorists of Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends', not enough. Appear on Russian state TV, not enough. Associate with convicted IRA terrorists and others linked with that terrorist organisation, not enough. Associate with a questionable Czech agent, not enough. Holiday in East Germany at the height of the Cold War, not enough. What would put him beyond the pale?

The Jeremy Corbyn lead Labour Party and Communist thought

Guido Fawkes reports today that:

'Chris Williamson is sitting behind Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs with communist paper theMorning Star deliberately left in camera shot on his lap. 

Presumably it will stay there for Jezza's response to the Russia statement too…'

I'm assuming not a word on the BBC.

A co-working space only for women per BBC News

The BBC rail against men only clubs but when the boot is on the other foot...

'There have been men-only clubs for centuries. The Wing is a co-working space in New York exclusively for women. Should there be more like this around the world?'

What's sauce for the goose...

UK'S Worst Grooming Gang Scandal: Telford Whistleblowers Punished, Silenced, Lost Jobs per Breitbart

The Telford grooming gang news is being hidden away on the BBC news website, for reporting it might raise awkward thoughts about the BBC's favourite religion.

Meanwhile Breitbart has this report that covers the sort of information that the BBC don't want reported.

UK'S Worst Grooming Gang Scandal: Telford Whistleblowers Punished, Silenced, Lost Jobs

A police chaplain and a charity worker were forced out of their jobs and silenced after trying to raise the alarm about the grooming and rape gangs operating in the town of Telford.

Around 1,000 victims were caught up inthe scandal, which could be the worst in UK history, with the gangs operating for 40 years, drugging, beating, trafficking, and raping non-Muslim girls, some as young as 11.Three girls were murdered and two others died following incidents linked to the abuse. Others were left addicted to drugs and scarred for life.

Many of the underage victims were considered as prostitutes by the authorities, and when concerned citizens attempted to blow the whistle, they were targeted in the workplace and one even lost her job.

A woman working for the sex abuse charity Axis Counselling, based in Shrewsbury, was forced to leave her role after she tried to speak out. The charity was funded by the police, The Mirror reports, and allegedly feared losing money.

Keith Osmund-Smith, a police chaplain, was suspended after he passed papers to the newspaper and a report commissioned by the council revealed social workers knew of the sex crimes in 2000 and earlier.'

Remind you of another grooming gang story that the BBC also tried not to report?

'A government report into the Rotherham grooming scandal found that political correctness, a "culture of fear" and intimidation, and concerns about accusations of racism allowed the mainly Muslim gangs to get away with their crimes for so long.'

The BBC certainly won't report this:

'Gerard Batten MEP, UKIP's Interim leader, commented: "These horror stories out of Telford are further evidence that these rape gangs are not a local, but a national problem, with new examples being constantly uncovered."There is a refusal on the part of the authorities to recognize that this is a consequence of Islamic ideology and to face the ghastly truths."'

The BBC are normally so vocal in support of the idea that rape victims must be believed but in this case, like Rotherham etc, they'll ignore the rape and mistreatment claims as there's a higher principle at stake:

'The Mirror spoke to 12 victims during their investigation, who accused more than 70 men of grooming in Telford. One 14-year-old said she had fallen pregnant twice and had two abortions while being groomed and abused."Hours after my second termination, I was taken by one of my abusers to be raped by more men", she said."Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses. I must have been getting the morning after pill from a local clinic at least twice a week but no one asked any questions."I was told that if I said a word to anyone they'd come for my little sisters and tell my mum I was a prostitute."

Another victim, Lucy Lowe, 16, was killed alongside her mother and sister after her abuser, 26-year-old Azhar Ali Mehmood, set fire to their house.The taxi-driver began targeted the young girls in 1997 and she gave birth to his child when she was just 14. Mr. Mehmood was jailed for murder but was never arrested or charged with any child sex abuse crimes.According to The Mirror, the killings were used to threaten other victims and pressure them to keep quiet.'

Outrage as Ugandan MP says 'beat your wife' per BBC News

The BBC report the outrage and are themselves outraged in this report 

Oddly there's a certain religion that seems to allow wife beating, not that the BBC would ever mention that inconvenient fact.

McDonnell: UK economy - Britain to become a Socialist country

'Mr McDonnell said that no-one should mistake his round of meetings with banks like Barclays and fund managers in the City (the so called "Rich Tea offensive" of discussions over biscuits of Labour's economic policies) with a reduction in his radicalism.

What does being "a socialist" mean, I asked him.

"It means to create a society that's radically fairer, radically more equal, radically more democratic, based upon a prosperous economy, but where that economy is sustainable, economically and environmentally, and here's the difference between us and the Conservatives, where that prosperity is shared by everybody."

Do you think Britain could become a socialist country?


From here

Be in no doubt what becoming a Socialist country means. Capital controls, centralised economic control and the equalisation of income to the detriment of all. Look at Venezuela, Cuba and every other Socialist / Communist country for a look into the future of the UK under a Jeremy Corbyn / John McDonnell Labour government. Not that the BBC will ever bring up such inconvenient facts.

Parsons Green: Tube bomb parts 'from Asda and Aldi' per BBC News

That's not the headline that I'd use for this report on the Parsons Green bomber. How about something based upon this section:

'Jurors were told that Mr Hassan arrived in Britain in the back of a lorry via the Channel Tunnel in October 2015.

He told authorities he was born in June 1999 in Iraq, but had no identity documents. He gave his name as Ahmed Hassan Mohammed Ali.

Mr Hassan claimed asylum, and from 2016 lived with foster parents in Cavendish Road, Sunbury in Surrey.

At the time he allegedly planned his attack his asylum claim was still outstanding, the court heard.'

Something like asylum seeker plans to kill and maim Londoners?

Communist Party: Corbyn Too Extreme on Hamas & IRA per Guido Fawkes

Unlike the BBC, Guido Fawkes had been reporting on the Communist Party talks with the Labour Party, something that the BBC would rather the British people were kept in the dark about.

Today Guido Fawkes reports that rather than the Communist Party holding views too extreme for Jeremy Corbyn, on at least one matter it's the other way around:

'Corbynistas were planning how to cooperate with their communist best friends earlier this week, but there's already a split emerging over Jezza's dodgy "friends". Discussing Corbyn's references to members of terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as "friends", General Secretary of the Communist Party of Britain Robert Griffiths told TalkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer:

"Quite frankly there's no context in which I would use ["friends"], the Communist Party has always been completely opposed to any form of religious fundamentalism."'

Now that would be tricky for the BBC to report so they will continue to ignore it.

The BBC and 'populists' today's example being -'Italy election: Populist Five Star and League vie for power'

The BBC are back to their trick of calling election winners of whom they don't approve 'populist'. Their report on the Italian general election here refers to populists.

Remind me, did the BBC call Tony Blair a populist in 1997? How about Barack Hussein Obama in 2007? Of course not, they were people who the BBC supported/hero worshipped at the time. Populist is a term that the BBC use to denigrate those election winners who do not hold the correct opinions.

Italy election:BBC News think it's been 'divisive'

This BBC report contains this lead in thought:

'Italians are voting after a divisive election campaign dominated by concerns over immigration and the economy.'

Aren't most election campaigns 'divisive' after all in democratic elections people tend to disagree with each other. Maybe the BBC look forward to an end to 'divisiveness' when a proper left wing Labour government sorts out 'democracy' so only correct views can be expressed, only approved candidates stand for office and only one political party exist. 

After all why would anyone want any party other than the People's Labour Party in power? Are you some sort of fascist?

Swiss voters ponder axing TV licence per BBC News

The BBC report on Switzerland's upcoming vote on axing the TV licence includes this:

'Florian Maier, a key figure in the campaign against the fee, believes that getting rid of it will allow people freedom of choice.

"I think people should choose on their own how they spend their money," he said

"It's giving people freedom. Freedom is when you aren't forced by anyone so there is no coercion of any kind. You know what you pay for."

Other opponents of the licence fee argue that the SBC - whose structure was originally modelled on that of the BBC - has become bloated and inefficient.

The three main television channels (German, French, and Italian) each have their own newsrooms, each send foreign correspondents to the world's major capitals.

There are also websites, and local radio stations in many Swiss towns and cities. Far more than a public broadcaster should have, the abolitionists argue, and so extensive that private media is being stifled.'

Let's see how those arguments apply to the BBC:

Coercion to pay for something you may not want - yes.

Bloated and inefficient - yes, with multiple reporters from Radio 4, Radio 5, BBC news, BBC 24 etc etc etc at big and not so big events, both news and sport

Finally, the BBC TV, radio and website have a massive presence in the dissemination of 'news' and views in the UK. Their local radio stations have squeezed out local newspapers and the national papers, apart from The Mail, can't compete with the BBC website. This would matter even if the BBC wasn't biased in its reporting of so much news.

That the BBC is massively biased, whether it be on:

UK politics - pro Labour and the left, even when the Labour Party leadership is as inimical to the interests of the UK as the current cabal of Corbyn, McDonnell, Abbott and their backroom backers who may be even more dangerous

Northern Ireland - pro IRA/nationalists and anti Loyalists

EU - massively anti Brexit

USA - viciously anti President Donald Trump now but anti Republicans and pro Democrats for years

Middle East - institutionally anti Israel (just read the Balen Report) and thus pro some of the nastiest regimes and terrorist groups in the world

Indian subcontinent - Anti India and pro Pakistan, because of the Muslim angle

South Africa - All but blind support for the ANC almost regardless of the killing of white farmers

China - Reticence in criticising the current imperialism / expanding of China across Africa and the Far East, whilst criticising historical Western imperialism

Imperialism - Following on from the above, the BBC view historical Western imperialism is bad but historical Islamic imperialism as something that never happened. Current real Chinese imperialism as not worthy of mention but non existent American imperialism as something worth worrying about

Islam - Reluctance to criticise Islam or elements within that religion, regardless of how many kufr girls are raped, how many Islamist terrorists and would be terrorists are discovered in the UK, Europe, America, Australia etc etc etc and how many people are killed or maimed by people declaring 'Allahu Akbar'

The list goes on and on but I haven't the time to list them all.

Trump steps up war of words on trade with threat to tax EU cars per BBC News

The BBC are exercised by President Donald Trump threatening a tariff on the EU

Has anyone wondered whether a tariff on the EU would apply to the UK after Brexit? If not then could the UK become a larger producer of cars and exporting them to the USA, and not via Rotterdam?

Tony Blair's own poll shows 65% want UK to leave EU 'whatever the cost' per Westmonster

Another opinion poll that the BBC will ignore as it runs counter to their anti Brexit narrative.

'A poll by Tony Blair's own 'Institute for Global Change' reveals the vast majority of people would rather Britain leaves the EU at all costs instead of staying and 're-thinking'. What a gift.

More than 91,000 people have voted and so far 65% have stuck two fingers up to the arch-Remoaner!'

81% Don't Want Early General Election

The BBC's attitude to reporting opinion polls is generally to report ones that help the various sides or causes that they support and to ignore those that run counter to their aims.

Thus the Comres poll to appear in Sunday's Mirror will not be reported on by the BBC.

Guido Fawkes does report it thus:

'A ComRes poll exclusively for the Sunday Mirror tomorrow finds that only 19% of voters want an early general election. ComRes say that rises to nearly a third in the 25-34 age group.'

Now that's the sort of poll that runs completely counter to the BBC / Labour Party narrative and so will not be reported upon by the Labour Party's propaganda arm.

Burkina Faso attack: French embassy targeted in Ouagadougou per BBC News

This BBC report on the latest terrorist attack in Burkina Faso has to include this:

'Who was behind previous attacks?

This is the third major attack Ouagadougou has seen in the past two years. Islamist militants said they had carried out the other two.

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said it was behind an attack on a restaurant and hotel in Ouagadougou in January 2016 that killed 30 people.

What has happened to al-Qaeda?

France intervened to stop that group taking control of neighbouring Mali in 2013.

But there are numerous other Islamist groups based in the region and militants have carried out attacks in several major West African cities in the past few years.'

Islamist terrorists probably to blame? I'm shocked, surely Islam is the Religion of Peace.

'Teacher' guilty of recruiting 'army of children' for London attacks

This story on Sky News about the 'teacher' planning attacks is oddly not being reported by the BBC.

"We are a death squad sent by Allah and his messengers to avenge my Arab brothers' blood," he said.

Handwritten notes presented in court revealed a hit list of targets including Transport for London, Shia Muslims, Heathrow, City banks, the media, embassies and Britain First.'

Obviously nothing to do with Islam.

McDonnell Has IRA Plaque Given to Him By Terrorist on His Office Wall per Guido Fawkes

Guido Fawkes has more on the sickness at the top of the Labour Party. This time it's about John 'kneecaping' McDonnell:

'The Plaque (on John McDonnell's wall) honours IRA murderer Francis Hughes, who killed two RUC officers in 1977 and a Para the following year. McDonnell was given the plaque by Gerry Kelly. 

(Kelly is) An IRA terrorist who received two life sentences for an attack on the Old Bailey which killed one person and injured 100…'

Not a word from the BBC about the sort of person who along with Jeremy 'friends in Hamas and Hezbollah' Corbyn head the Labour Party. Is the BBC really going to continue to help a Labour Party lead by such individuals into power? Silly question I know.

BBC's Brexit Bias is Mainstream Perception of the Public per Guido Fawkes

The survey at Guido Fawkes is incredible only in that anyone with any semblance of a grasp on reality could possibly think that the BBC was pro Brexit.

'People aren't stupid, by a 3 to 1 more people think the BBC is anti – than pro Brexit, when over a quarter of the audience has come to the conclusion the BBC is biased there is a real problem, because if we don't want to read the most partisan newspapers we don't buy them. The BBC's funding forces us all to pay for it and we expect to be impartial as a result. It is manifestly not perceived as a source of impartial information on this polarising issue.'

The BBC is biased against Brexit, of that there is no doubt. However the BBC, and its oversight, is structured in such a way that it doesn't matter. As currently constituted the BBC can pretty much do what it wants, short of blatantly breaking the law. This much stop, but under an anti Brexit hard left Labour government the BBC will be joyous and in full propagandising mode whilst the remnants of the free press will be restrained.

Labour left kosher off the menu for annual dinner per The Jewish Chronicle

This JC report is not that surprising.

'A Labour event which will feature a speech from the party's Shadow Equalities Minister offered attendees five meal options based on different dietary requirements – but failed to include kosher.

Participants in the London Labour group annual dinner were able to select halal meals, or vegetarian and vegan options, but no provision was available for Jewish diners who keep kosher.'

The Labour Party also omitted options for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains.

For the Labour Party Islam is the important religious group to pander to. They generally vote Labour, are much more numerous than Jews and the generally Indian subcontinent religions, are as anti Israel as the new Jeremy Corbyn Labour Party is and of course many would agree with Jeremy Corbyn's 'friends' in Hamas and Hezbollah when it comes to Jew hatred.
