Beeb’s Biased Brief

“Legal commentator and former government lawyer” Carl Gardner has been rather vocal in recent days about the Abu Qatada case. He’s billed as an impartial commentator on the airwaves. Today in the Guardian he pronounced that “I read both cases as supporting Abu Qatada’s reading, rather than the Home Secretary’s.” Surprisingly his opinions might not be as impartial as he likes to present. Writing with a little less legal flair during the 2010 general election campaign, Gardner said “as a Labour supporter, I’m far from being a natural Conservative, and so perhaps I’m likely to be biased”. Someone better tell the “un-biased” BBC…

            As there are very few people worth listening to in a suburb of Britain’s third city, most BBC News interviewees are in London via video link

            It was sooooooo worth moving to Salford

            I actually trust Al Jazeera to be more objective, unbiased and relevant than the BBC, which is really sad.

            It frightens the shit out of me when we can’t even put the man on Trial. WHY? What the Fu-k is the Government so frightened of? Considering that the 7/7 Bomber came from Jordan and he probably New Abu Qatada do we NOT want to find out who was really behind the 7/7 attack and not a couple of thick child minders.

      Firstly I must cite an article in the Spectator some years ago written by Bruce (the Brute) Anderson. The issue is not Bruce its what he wrote. He called the then Attorney General – Lord Goldsmith a spinless man along with the [Quote] “Shyster minions” acting below him – And that included Carl Gardner who promotes himself of his webshites as having worked for the AG at the time. The issue of spinless was in respect of the AG and his shyster minions – failing to call the shot on Bliars lies about 45 minutes to destruction.

        I have long abandoned the TV licence.

        I refuse to voluntarily subsidise communist propaganda.

        If enough people did likewise it would choke off the parasites that live off of the licence money.

            Not true, OWNING a TV or computer requires you to own a TV licence. The BBC sussed that one out years ago, even if you have an old TV in the loft you are still breaking the law if you don’t have a licence.

            That’s not true.

            You only need a licence if you watch or record broadcast tv.

            You do not néed a tv licence if you use your tv to watch recorded media or catchup tv via iPlayer, 4OD etc. through a broadband connection.

    Quite possibly the best comment I’ve read for ages, over at the Tittygraph, in response to Ruth Porter’s article on how the Gov can make savings:

    A woman walks into the Liverpool benefits office, trailed by 15 kids.

    ‘WOW,’ the social worker exclaims, ‘Are they ALL yours?

    ‘Yeah they are all mine,’ the flustered mother sighs, having heard that question a thousand times before. She says, ‘Sit down Terry.’

    All the children rush to find seats.

    ‘Well,’ says the social worker, ‘then you must be here to sign up. I’ll need all your children’s names.’

    ‘This one’s my oldest – he is Terry.’

    ‘OK, and who’s next?’ ‘Well, this one he is Terry, also.’

    The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the oldest four, all boys, all named Terry. Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, named Terri.

    ‘All right,’ says the caseworker. ‘I’m seeing a pattern here. Are they ALL named Terri?’

    Their Mother replied, ‘Well, yes – it makes it easier. When it is time to get them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, ‘Terry!’ An’ when it’s time for dinner, I just yell ‘Terry!’ an’ they all come runnin.’ An’ if I need to stop the kid who’s running into the street, I just yell ‘Terry’ and all of them stop. It’s the smartest idea I ever had, namin’ them all Terry.’

    The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively, ‘But what if you just want ONE kid to come, and not the whole bunch?’

    ‘I call them by their surnames!’

      As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with
      the authorities on our way home from the odd social session over the years.

      A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends at the
      Marriott Hotel and had a few too many beers and some rather nice red wine.

      Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something
      I’ve never done before: I took a bus home.

      Sure enough I passed a police road block but as it was a bus, they waved
      it past. I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise, as
      I have never driven a bus before and I am not sure where I got it.

      People like you have turned the BBC into a ecofascist islamofascist hard left quasi Marxist propaganda mouthpiece. Everything the BBC does is political because the left believes that everything is political and the BBCs role is to indoctrinate the public. From childrens TV to soaps to news to documentaries to drama, they are all designed to spread the message of progressive left and hard left values. Abu Qatada? Your sort has some kind of perverted love affair with islamofascism, God knows why because the first victims of islamofascism are the leftists. Abu Qatada hates and despises the UK while happily living off the tax payer and the left hates and despises the UK while happily living off the tax payer, maybe thats why you are so attracted to each other?
