Labour Candidate is BBC Bias Complaints Judge

Ever wondered why your complaint of left-wing bias against the BBC wasn’t upheld?  It could be because you were speaking to one Chris Summers on the phone. Via his Facebook we learn that Mr Summer’s isn’t too keen on his “dull, boring, grey, miserable, crap job – dealing with election complaints!Would this be the same Chris Summers who is the Labour coucil candidate in Ealing?

Elsewhere in on his Facebook page Summers spins for Brown, who he refers to as “the boss” and advocates his friends vote Labour. Such sentiments about a political party from someone with such a  keen interest in his job makes you wonder just how serious his employers are about the balance of their output. At the end of the last month Summers said “Oh, the frustration of working for the BBC! Editorial Guidelines!!! Aaaaaah!!”

Guido would wager he isn’t the only lefty in Broadcasting House to think like that…

          • I Remember You Hoo says:

            Do the BBC or Paxman realise, that elitist, sneering condescension, actually works against them in these kind of interviews, not the person they are sneering at?
            Obviously not.

          • universal hiss says:

            Am I going bonkers? I agreed with everything Farage said when he could get over Paxman’s sneering.

            Well done that man.

          • Canary Wharf Rat says:

            The BBC is a great example of a government department that should be privatised…..

          • Old Seth says:

            I may disagree with many UKIP policies – though not their euroscepticism – but I can’t see how any reasonable person could deny that Farage wiped the floor with Paxman, who has lost any genuinely intelligent probing skills he may have had and has entirely resorted to flippancy, snarling and sneering.

          • iain says:

            What a condescending fucker that Paxman is. Happily Farage was well able for him.

          • Nick2 says:

            Other than bringing back the Radio 4 theme & Pullman trains I agreed with everything else Nigel Farage said.

            I’ve never seen Paxman so condescending. Normally he shreds politicians who ‘hesitate, obsfuscate or deviate’. But Farage didn’t.

            Maybe he thought he could get a few cheap laughs from the studio audience (‘Mr Garage’). Maybe he hadn’t done as much research as with LibLabCon manifestos. Maybe he’s a closet UKIP fan trying to drum up a sympathy vote (least likely).

            The only slip that Farage made (IMO) was not to have considered where the new prisons would go. Bigger prisons = more violence & disorder. The UK needs more modern, less crowded prisons. NOT ‘Titan’ prisons.

            Build them in the middle of nowhere (exemplified by Barnsley, which has a large potential prison population!). Towns in the rural US are more prone to accept prisons as they provide jobs to a not especially well qualified local (unemployed) workforce.

            The only down-side of scattering prisons in the furthest-flung corners is isolation from their families, contact with which is supposed to help keep the lid on in existing prisons. So build internet booths in the prisons & satellite visiting centres in major towns in UK. It’d be better than what our troops on deployment + their families have to deal with. And virtual visiting could be a more frequently allowed privilege for good behaviour.

          • City of Vice says:

            Paxman is so overrated….

          • Kasou says:

            What a sneering ignorant idiot Paxman reminds me of everything wrong with Mandelson and Blair…jeez what a smarmey b’stard

          • NorthernGit says:

            For someone who is very capable of interviewing politicians with razor sharp questions Paxman’s condescending manner was pathetic. The BBC have, during this election, shown themselves to be truly unable to present a consistent balance of views or commentary on what is going on.

            After the election rip the charter up and throw them into the commercial pit with the others..thats all they deserve…. Bristish Broadcasting at it’s lowest point for as long as I can remember.

          • Ian says:

            Paxman stinks and his granny was a slag who was kicked off welfare for being a proz and having loads of bastards.

            He’s scum from the gutter.

          • Batty Hattie Harmanescu says:

            Well, what’s not to like about Nigel Farage. He did not say a single thing I could disagree with, and, I think he dealt brilliantly with Paxman’s sneering, which backfired quite spectacularly.

            So, thanks Jeremy, for pointing out so clearly where my vote should go.

            The sooner the BBC is completely shut, closed down, covered in concrete and buried at the bottom of the deepest trench of the deepest ocean, with the entire news production company still inside the building, the better!!!

            I exclude the BBC sports coverage (which is good) and the light entertainment, (which is poor), but the news and current affairs section of the BBC is positively treasonous!

            They are passionately ANTI British and should cease to exist.

            The BBC still do some good nature progs and there’s always Antiques Roadshow, even though these days many of the artefacts on it are younger than me. Bits of Radio 3 are OK too.

            The Beeb also has a strong anti-rural bias that you townies probably don’t notice, but then Labour has always hated country people. Like all Lefties they see us as a bunch of kulaks to be liquidated. Seriously, though, the average age of farmers is now so high, and increasing, that there soon won’t be anyone around to grow anything. Then we’ll have to import ALL our food and the Greenies wouldn’t like that, would they?

            Mr Cameron said: “If you want to understand climate change, go and see Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth.” ”

            “Today, I want to tell the British people some uncomfortable truths. There is a price for progress in tackling climate change.”

            Mr Gore praised the role Mr Cameron had played in promoting environmental issues.

            “The fact that both your political parties are competing vigorously to offer solutions is very important,” he told Tory frontbenchers.

            “I can assure you that people around the world really are watching and are appreciating the quality of this debate.”

          Re the Paxman/Farage interview: I was trying to imagine snotgobbler or Cameroon, let alone Clegg firing back such quick and succinct answers. There is no faffing around with Farage and no waffle. Even when Paxman tried to take the piss over his name he didn’t rise. He just took it in his stride and put Paxman in his box. Wonderful stuff. If only Cameron was as astute. Otherwise, we’re fucking doooooooommmed.

          • The Paman school of purile interviewing skills says:

            Is it Paxman or Tampaxman ?

          • oooooer says:

            if he was the second at least we could string him up

          • Tampaxman says:

            At least he would then be useful

          • Hugh Janus says:

            Well said Snotrocket, that’s exactly it – from the heart and hang the consequences. What you see is what you get, as opposed to the dreadful PR exercise that controls the other two parties. I am increasingly attracted by UKIP. It’s just a pity that Farage is a one-man party. When this rolling stone gathers some moss we might be getting somewhere. Farage is what the conservatives used to be – low taxation, small state, stuff the fabulously expensive and corrupt EU, strong defences. Unfortunately our nation is having an extended attack of spinelessness, and until we get over it we are stuck with Wavy Davy and his crew. I’ve given up shouting at the telly and throwing things – he just isn’t listening. So be it.

          Paxman the pratman,and the rest of the BBC are shitting bricks when it comes to politics they are scared to fucking death of ant change in government,because there is a high probability that they might get privatized or someone stopping the license tax.
          For the past 14 years the BBC being part of the overblown public sector have been allowed to go unchecked over the way they are run ie:as though they are in the private sector and pay private sector wages,the way they dress and are being paid by more than any other branch of the government.

A reformed BBC, especially in news and current affairs, YES,but you have to admire so much BBC stuff on BBC 4, and radios 3 and 4- there’s nothing of such quality anywhere else. Just switch on your tele in your hotel bedroom next time you’re abroad- it’s painful to watch, with commercial breaks of about 15 minutes.

            Golden Days said: “there’s nothing of such quality anywhere else.”

            There would be if the BBC wasn’t such a massive part of the broadcasting industry. In the same way the Government being half the economy is bad for Britain, the BBC being such a leviathan, especially in the realms of radio, *is* bad for broadcasting.

            A much smaller BBC with a much smaller budget would be great for commercial telly and great for viewers, not least because the BBC is a political organ that leans well to the left so the smaller it can be made the better. It’s size normalises the statist/socialist view when much of the country simply isn’t like that.

          No Murdoch has ever come out against the BBC licence fee. That’s because the alternative to the licence fee is subscriptions. News Corp does not want the BBC building a competitive conditional-access pay-TV platform, which it could easily do, using the existing freeview digital network as a basis. This of course would compete with BSkyB’s structural monopoly of the subscription TV market. Not even The Sun has called for privarising the BBC. Murdoch publications are stuffed with people on the BBC payroll. Yes, Cameron likes the licence fee. For the same reason all politicians do: it gives them complete control. The BBC is a state broadcaster, not accountable to the public. Politicians set the level of the fee. They appoint the so-called ‘trust’ members. When the BBC strays off the reservation (Iraq) the government demands and gets the heads of the chairman and director general. Aboce all, via the BBC, the government can impose its chosen discourse, within the paramters of its choice. The BBC will only be toppled when the Brits show the guts of the Australians. They refused to pay their licence fee in such numbers that the government was forced to scrap it.

          • Mr Ned says:

            People who think the BBC is the puppet of Government (of any colour) are wrong. Likewise the Government is not controlled by the media.

            They are equal puppets and BOTH are controlled by the elite Establishment in the backroom deals in secret.

            If the Government stray from the NWO globalisation line, the media attacks them. If the Media strays, the Government faces regulation and sanctions.

            They are both new world order puppets.

          • Postlethwaite says:

            But now with everyone being converted to digital, we CAN be forced into subscriptions.
            You know it makes sense.

            The best thing to do if you don’t like the BBC is to withhold payment of the telly tax. It’s easy to do — TV Licensing are morons. Lots of info on the net how to do it.

I also do not want to fund Rupert Murdoch who has supported Labour for far too long so I refuse to ever buy the Times or the Sun.

        No, democratic parties that are victims of the BBC’s anti-democratic bias – obviously I’m talking the Tories and UKIP here – should publicly attack the BBC and make an election issue out of its bias. An organisation that is so screamingly bent that it has at least one Labour Party candidate dealing with complaints of election bias needs a thorough going Parliamentary purge to put it right. It will be a great day for British democracy when scumbags like Jeremy Paxman, James Naughtie and John Humphrys get their marching orders.

      A few years ago I was listening to the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2. The unspoken common theme of all the issues that they were discussing that day was that Britain’s freedom of action was severely curtailed by its membership of the EU. I phoned up the show to make my point but was told by a rather snotty woman that it was not possible to put my opinion through to the studio ( i.e that Britain should leave the EU ) because my opinion was so outlandish and extreme!

      Since then UKIP have won even gained even more MEPS so the BBC occassionaly lets an anti EU voice to be aired. But the reality is that the Beeb is an organisation that Hitler or Stalin would have been proud of!!

      Its biased, but not that biased. MSNBC is Fox News for lefties. The BBC is institutionally biased to the EU-friendly, Anthropomorphic Climate Change concerned left. But it is populated by quite a number of right wing commentators. Andrew Neil, Jeremy Clarkson, Nick Robinson to name a few. Its comedy output is so left wing its silly though. It’s not as bad as its made out to be though all things considered.

        You miss the point.

        The right wing commentators do exist but stand out a mile because the background is the low-level drip feed coverage. I went to a BBC consultation once and the horror I produced when I suggested that the BBC might have a ‘House View’ in some of its coverage was palpable. And yet they do. A simple exercise for media studies students is to ask them to rate the underlying assumptions made in any news bulletin dealing with political or social issues. It produces some quite startling results.

        Try it with the 7 am news bulletin on Radio 4 any day; look at the choice of headline, the balancing material added to any news coverage and most importantly see where it comes from. The perspective of the reporter and the editorial direction comes through quite clearly. It’s not all one-way traffic, but trends are measurable.

        It’s easiest to see when you track their coverage of stories that relate not to what has happened but to what hasn’t happened yet. ‘… will today’ ‘… are expected to..’ These constructions are most useful because they illustrate a judgement on the part of the reporter based on what a source has given him or her about the day’s events.

      No it isn’t. Fox News is open about its political bias. It claims its reporting is objective but its comment isn’t. Being so open you can judge for yourself whether its bias interferes with its reporting or not.

      The power of the BBC’s bias is its big act that its impartial. A lot of people swallow what it says. Just look at the number of people in the country who think Israel is Attila the Hun because of the anti-semitic way the BBC covers the I/P conflict.

      The more blatant BBC bias gets the more people are aware of it, but it doesn’t do the Tories much good because people dont respect them for not confronting it. One of the purposes of BBC bias is to demean them.

      Fox News is not a subversive organisation. The BBC is, and its paid for by taxpayers money.

        I agree with you to a limited extent.

        The BBC is a left wing organisation and I am certainly not a left wing supporter, nor do I agree with the BBC’s output on the middle east in general and I am far to the right of the current tory party. I would love to see the BBC news and current affairs departments sunk to the bottom of the deepest ocean.

        That stated, I think that Israel’s behaviour is utterly unacceptable and completely inappropriate for any modern, civilised nation state. Behaving worse than, and killing more innocents than, the terrorists who they are “defending themselves from” puts world Jewry into international disrepute.

        I get my news from all over the place, including Israeli publications such as Haaretz, and many of these are far more critical of the Israeli leadership than the BBC.

        What Israel is doing in Gaza is nothing short of barbaric, and is a serious and unambiguous crime against humanity.

          Atlas shrugged says:

          Yes the BBC takes on leftist ideas. but on a fundamental level BBC is CORPORATISM writ large.

          If the BBC ever in the past said a bad thing about multi-national corporatism it most surely does not any more.

          The BBC is not right wing or left wing and it has never been any any form of real control from any elected political party. In fact it has as little to do with anything democratic as it can possibly get away with. Save in that its job is purely and simply to help preserve the illusion of real democracy while enabling its establishment master to effect any policies it so wishes.

          Most if not nearly all of the BBC’s employees have little or no idea that this is what they are involved with. This because just like our secret services The BBC is highly departmentalised . The right hand is hardly ever allowed to know what the left hand is doing, while the bottom is NEVER allowed to know what the top is up to never mind who is controlling that.

          TRUE corporatism if ever their was such a thing, and believe me corporatism controls just about every single product and service provided by any but the smallest or organisations. The BBC is not small, in fact it is by far and away the largest, most experience, highly influential and most over well funded corporatist organisation ever known to the propaganda industry.

          The BBC has been basically controlling YOUR mind whether you know it or not since before your very conception, by controlling the minds of your parents, and there parents before them.

          Some say that corporatism is left wing, some say it is right wing. such is the nature of the divide and rule, and forever illusively confusing beast.

          The point is that corporatism is neither but it most surely is socialism not to say ultimately Communism, run, owned and completely and utterly controlled by the biggest and most powerful so called capitalists this world has ever known.

          Most of which are collectively known as BANKSTERS. Although they could also be known as Religious Leaders, Slave Drivers, Land Lords, Oil Barons, Mine Owners, or even Gold and Diamond merchants. Put them all together in one small board room and you basically have the people who really control the BBC and just about everything else right in front of you.

          One thing that does not even get to serve the tea at such meetings is elected anybody.

      Still. 8% behind Tories and Lib Dems so they must be getting close to the tipping point in the UNS where they start losing seats by the hundred.

    Apparently they’re on 24% with the Tories and LibDems on 32% apiece. But the best bit is that in Scotland Labour are on 40% and the Tories on 15%. So if the Scottish electorate are 10% of the total UK electorate then that 40% equates to a 2% shift up in the total Labour vote so in England Labour are on 22%. Likewise the Tory vote of 15% in Scotland drags down their total UK vote by 1.5%. So in England the Tories are looking at 33.5% compared to Labours 22%.

    Labour are going to get practically wiped out in England.

    “Dear TrustyShield

    Thanks for your e-mail regarding our news reporting.

    I understand you’re unhappy as you feel our coverage has become biased in favour of the Labour Party.

    It is not always possible or practical to reflect all the different opinions on a subject within individual programmes. Editors are charged to ensure that over a reasonable period they reflect the range of significant views, opinions and trends in their subject area.

    We don’t seek to denigrate any view or to promote any view. We try to identify all significant views, and to test them rigorously and fairly on behalf of the audience.

    I realise you feel this isn’t the case so I’d like to assure you that I’ve registered your comments on our audience log. This is a daily internal report of audience feedback which we circulate to all programme makers. It ensures that your complaints are circulated and considered across the BBC.

    Thanks again for taking the time to contact us.

Even the mindless yobs are down to us for our failing to generate a responsible society.

          “I don’t see the BBC as a State broadcaster.”

          “I think people see the BBC as operating at arms length from the government and it’s very important that it should continue to do so and that’s why we’ve said we will protect the BBC charter.”

            This is mere political bollocks to get keep the self-interested ranks of the meeja and luvviedom off the scent.
            The BBC clearly don’t believe this or they wouldn’t be alienating so much of middle England with their constant Tory bashing and Labour apologising.

            Once again an NAO audit is morally and politiically the right thing to do with any tax-funded organisation. It doesn’t look politically motivated, but the findings can destroy the BBC and therefore give the Conservatives every reason to change their tune on this type of blow-job quote.

            Most people know the BBC is anti-Tory and left-wing but there may be little sympathy for an obvious all-out partisan assault because most people are not that partisan in their own viewpoint.

            Financial scandals involving tax-payers money, as MPs have found out, sickens people.

            The BBC have been given enough rope for themselves over the years and now there is great opportunity to let them hang themselves

            That was said a month and a bit ago.
            His stance is NO dofferent to Cameron’s who has endorsed both the BBC and the License fee plenty of times.
            The Cameron Policy on the BBC is to replace the current Trust.. with ANOTHER trust. Check the Manifesto.

            For the idiot who’s stupidity would be worrying in a 3 year old, just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean it’s a lie you twat. Cameron DID lie about Lisbon but you’ll notice that he had to admit it thus proving your ‘secret policy’ bullshit 100% wrong.

            You’re all living in a dream world if you think Cameron has either the political capital, the time or even the inclination to pick a fight with the BBC. Even if he could win the election. His own policy says otherwise and he has far more pressing economic troubles than going back on his word on something that the entire British public would take notice of.

            Nu-Labour took on the BBC over Iraq and it cost them.

          • nell says:

            Not at all! 22.6% of viewers on terrestrial tv , according to the BBC’s own statistics, watch BBC News 24.

            The BBC base that figure on the number of people who watch BBC News 24 , on terrestrial tv, at any time during a 24 hour period for ” at least 3 mins”!!!!

            I wonder where all rest go to watch Real News??!!

            And I wonder why we are paying a forced license fee/ BBC tax of £140 per year for this miniscule amount of people , which mostly does not include any of us, to watch BBC rubbish!!!!

          • Ray Snoddy says:

            Half the population probably don’t watch the news so that means more watch BBC than any other broadcaster.


            And that, nell, is why despite publicly claiming they want digital broadcasting to be introduced by 2010, the BBC will fight tooth and nail to prevent that from happening for as soon as they go totally digital then the BBC’s true viewing figures will have to be published.
            Very few people watch or listen to the BBC. The RAJAR based figures are probably inflated by a factor of at least twenty.
            When you consider the BBC ratings are worked out on the basis of 1000 people noting what they have listened and watched over a period of a week you realise what a complete fucking farce the viewing figures are.

            Also how do you expect my sister and Scottish brother in law are going to drive home to see their family if the place is moved that far away, and there is suddenly a dirty great big piece of ocean where the M1 used to be?

            Anyway surely if all you want to do is kill the entire population of Scotland would it not just be a lot easier if not a whole lot more cost effective to simply let them carry on having Labour administrations running most of the remaining show. After a few years they will either end up all working in Broadcasting House or eating each other and therefore save us the cost of burying them and any other moral responsibility.

            Also have you considered how many tugs would be needed to perform such an massive undertaking?

            Na, on balance a rather silly idea. However if you really are set on mass murder, perhaps a few hundred tons of cheap rat poison dumped in the water supply may do the essential proportion of your required trick. May I suggest late Dec 31st, by the next day most of them will be desperately in need of a drink of water and won’t be able to taste a thing.

            I dont pay my BBC licence fee. I blatantly tell them this in writing and demand they take me to court in front of a jury. They havent bothered me for three years. A jury will see in a court of law that BBC tax is illegal and BS. It would be then end of that corporations licence fee. To this day the BBC have never once taken a single person to a trial. The dumbed down masses get frightened when the illegal letters come through the door. The idiots tick the box that says Im guilty of not paying my tax. I send my back with FU written all over it and demand a trial.

            Thats all you need to do. Demand a trial, and they will never ever bother you again. You can go a step further and then take them to the European court of human rights. Then their seriously deep in shit

    The trick you see to always getting your comments published by the BBC is simple.

    I don’t like to fight weaker opponents so it is your own choice to heed this and use it to your advantage or not, Some of your more ‘switched on’ readers may of figured this out awhile ago but anyway;

    There is a general blanket sheet of pre written statements or rebuttal’s or sometimes new ones are thought up to deal with the situation that arises in the media.

    Which ever one is picked to deal and or edited/abridged to deal with whatever situation is copy and pasted and emailed to activists and trusted members and friends with links to the site to post said statement/rebuttal in.

    After that the ground troops are left to their own devices to attack or not.

    You just have to watch for the comments that sing from the same hymn sheet with a particular opening like a recent one

    ‘I am not a fan of Gordon Brown/Labour but’

    Said site is ‘astroturfed’ as some readers have already guessed with an inital shockwave, some more committed members of the cause will stay and argue with you they do so off their own bat.

    We more skilled and talented operators who are paid for our talents intervene when needed but generally we have enough sympathisers and placemen in the organisations to do most of our work for us.

    The trick is to make our point the majority point via carpet bombing, deleting others comments or modding them so they never see daylight in the first place.

    People accept it as reality and history is written how we wish.

    One snippet today concerned voting Liberal will reduce any potential Tory majority.

    I would complain but I see little point.

    Friday’s Ashes to Ashes had an anti-Thatcher sub-plot, even mentioned “milk snatcher” FFS. Apparently the Falklands War wasn’t just, it was a ploy to win votes. I don’t think the Islanders delivered from the hands of a Third World police state would think so.

      Ashes to Ashes has most definetly got an evil baby eating toties sub plot running through it. Its getting quite pathetic, looks like the thick script writers cant come up with a decent ending. They failed over the last two series to reach a satisfactory conclusion and now on the done to death third series they are failing again.

          Last week’s Dr Who was the last I will watch. Today’s youngsters spend a lot of time in their history classes learning about Hitler and Stalin; arm-band politics as it has been nicknamed. You can’t look at either of these systems without spending a significant amount of time on propaganda. But such is the ignorance of the general public that the BBC can use every transmission as vehicle for spreading extreme left wing propaganda. The hidden messages in the Dr Who episode about “Britain in Space” (whatever!) were all about race. That other races are as common here as whites. (I am not questioning whether we should have immigrants here. I have friends who black, Indian, and even Welsh.)

          Look at the hidden messages. Opening scene in classroom, kids receiving marks. The failing child is a white male, every one else is good, and the Indian child is very good. The Doctor stops at a table with a black couple; I was surprised it wasn’t a gay couple. First adult actor to speak (other than Dr and his companion) a black adult. The in story heroine is the Queen; but she is black. The evil civil servant behind the conspiracy; a grey haired white mail.

          As I said I have friends from other races (and gay friends too.) But as travel about my local area here in the north Midlands the people I come across are much more likely to be white than anything else. I don’t know what happens in London, I don’t care. But London isn’t like the 90% of Britian. And the Beeb doesn’t represent 90% of Britain either.

    Beeboid DeLuxe says:

    A couple of days ago on BBC Radio 1 two presenters shared an anecdote that, whilst worth a snigger if you are a lad, epitomised the vile decent into coarseness and that is not only the preserve of Jonathon Ross.

    The story as related on-air: one of their mates had, the previous night, got so rat-arsed at a club that he lost voluntary control of his bowel and heavily soiled his underwear. That was funny enough already to the presenters, who were in stitches on behalf of their audience. But the punchline was that he then went to the toilets and wiped himself down with the clean part of his boxers, flushed them and continued partying.

    It was a blokish approach to life, of course, and admirable for that. The story was hardly the most offensive thing I have ever heard, though I do see it as unnecessarily coarse for the BBC to justify it at license-payers expense.

    What does this anecdote really code for, though? It was an opportunity, in reality, to glamorise extreme drunkenness in young people, particularly males. Because they were laughing at this in matey approval of the guy who was so alcoholically intoxicated that, by medical standards, his life, if not his health, was in danger, they were giving assent, even encouragement, to such behaviour.

    Surely there are grounds for serious criticism of the BBC here for the damage they are wilfully inflicting on impressionable youths; and surely this is far more serious than the Wossy incident. I am making a formal complaint to the BBC and would encourage others to do so too.

    New Labour have wrecked this country and the BBC has been deeply complicit. Neither of them can claim to be behaving responsibly when it comes to discouraging underage drinking and this should be widely known and gain focus during the election campaign.

    City of Vice says:

    The Tory campaign is mind-bogglingly inept. I watched Cameron’s latest broadcast yesterday evening and my heart sank – apparently the content was revised to take on the Liberal surge- utter tripe – talk about missing another own goal.

    When will Dave and his handlers understand that this is not a presidential race? It’s supposed to be the Conservative Party not ‘David Cameron’s Conservatives’. More the the point, Dave is not loved by his own ranks, much less by the masses, for this kind of personality politics to work. So instead of banging on about Dave’s homespun values how about the Tories exposing Labour’s appalling record in government and exposing the Liberals ludicrous core policies e.g. higher immigration, soft on crime (they propose counselling instead of jail ffs), stripping our defences, greater EU integration, dumping the pound and joining the Euro and so on.

    Right now the Tories are guilty of a failure to engage the enemy.

    I can but surmise that the policy wonks at CCHQ who thought up this bland ‘Big Society’ and ‘change’ bollocks are either too incompetent or conflicted to admit they’ve fucked up but either way it’s time for adult supervision at CCHQ. Surely ‘big’ anything is the wrong moniker (anti intuitive) when coming from the mouth of a politician proposing smaller government. Change? Hardly dramatic enough. We need revolution and revenge, i,e to tear down and rip up Labour’s client state.

      Ah well ......It was good whilst it lasted says:

      The Conservative Campaign is a disaster from start to finish.Apart from Cameron who hasn’t been at HIS best nobody else seems arsed enough to actually get up and do anything dynamic .Hague was a fucking disaster in yesterday’s Foreign Policy Debate. He can’t have been jet-lagged as there’s no bloody jets but he was definitely below par

      The electorate are looking for hope and a hero any hero.Problem is they’ve settled on Clegg without really understanding what a disaster LibDems policies are on a variety of issues from law and order;defence;immigration;europe.

      In the present UK “X Factor” style voting people will vote for LibDems in their droves and thus deprive Cameron & Co of any chance of winning or even being the biggest party. It’s in my view definietly heading towards a “Hung Parliament” and a LibDem/Labour Coalition probably for 18 months max(that’ll be how long it takes before they fall out with one another)This is not just a disaster for the Conservative Party but more importantly a disaster for the UK of monumental proportions.

      Cameron and Co have blown it……..they’ve blown a 26 point lead and in 4 weeks time they’ll probably be one party leader looking for a new job and it’s unlikely to be Brown or Clegg.

    Hard-Lazing Voter says:

    If Cameron is serious about winning the General Election, he needs to tell everyone tomorrow that the public sector sacred cow is no longer untouchable (and that includes the BBC), that AGW is little more than a leftist power grab, that there will be a referendum on the EU to decide if we want to have our powers passed over to Brussels and that we will develop a truly independent nuclear deterrent as part of a strong and forceful foreign policy that seeks to protect our interests, whether they be economic, energy, socially or politically and will be done regardless of what the Marxists in the EU, US, China and the Commonwealth think.

    Unfortunately Cameron is a caring sharing compassionate conservative so he won’t.

    “Dr Sulieman Al Hourani was only supposed to cut out a cyst, but removed the whole right testicle instead.

    Sarah Prichard, counsel for the GMC, said the mistake was made as a nurse helping the surgeon turned her back to get a stitch. When she turned around the testicle had been removed.”.

    They are literally hacking our balls off now.

    Why no attack on the entirely pointless decision to send a fucking aircraft carrier to bring home half a dozen pissed up squaddies from Espana? I could understand it if we wanted to bomb Spain, but otherwise…? How many millions is that costing? Money “out of the economy”, surely Gordon?

    Why not mention that Ernst and Young growth figures blow Gordon’s “recovery” “plan” out of the water?

    Why no mention of the 13 years Fat Fuck Gordon has had to “change” the zillion things he reckons we need to change, during which he has done fuck all except spunk our money?

    This election is a fucking farce, a sick joke, a pitiful fake democracy. I reject it.

    Snowy the Blue Peter kitten says:

    The BBC is formed by Royal Charter and as such it has the same rights as an individual…It can be sued and can sue, etc.

    Organisations formed by Royal Charter ultimately answer to the Privy Council (PCO) on all matters…including ultimately complaints under the BBC Charter.

    Lord Mandleson was appointed as Lord President of the Council in 2005.

    Since 2005 the BBC has suffered from more scandals and anti-trust issues than at any other time in it’s history.

    It is not all radio abuse and miss-naming cats. Editors across all other UK media answer ether to the Press Complaints Commission (Press) or Ofccom (Broadcasters)…

    The real answer to this countries problems is for the people to on mass to simply cancel their council tax direct debits and refuse to pay for the BBC illegal tax. Can you imagine the message that would send out to the corrupt tossers playing games with all our future. They would be begging the countries people to come to their senses. But oh what a powerful message that would be. But of course the majority of this countries population have no backbone whatsoever.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
