More Question Time Briefing Leaks

Seems the last minute nature of the panel – it was supposed to be a Ken, Boris, Brian & Jenny Question Time until the BBC changed their mind – has prompted some hasty preparation.

This was found in the Marquis of Granby pub…

        You should have heard the BBC venom Farage was subjected to on R4’s Today programme this morning for daring to mention controlled immigration.

        However, I see that that R4 Today has deleted all reference to Farage from this morning’s programme running order list on their website.

        I wonder why?

          “You should have heard the BBC venom Farage was subjected to on R4′s Today programme”

          Why? The BBC exists to entertain Trots, chavs and imm!grants.

          I don’t watch it. I don’t listen to it. I don’t fund it.


          • Anonymous says:

            Unlike Fox News which deseminates mangled right wing rubbish, the trouble everyone reads and listens to what they want to hear and what they understand, but block out an alternate point of view. It would be far better to have a neutral news feed where only the truth is spoken and there is no spin put on figures to satisfy their own point of view. Now Guido works for Dirty Des and not the Dirty Digger he is free to have a go at Murdoch and his cronies, Cameron seems to have lost a lot of support on this blog but there seems like a lack of acceptable possible replacements without some sort of baggage, various bodies put feelers out as per Nadine Dorries, Dr Fox but they have baggage.


          • impartial my arse says:

            We should have a truly mixed media, not a pretend one like we have now. Let us have our own Fox News, and watch it spank the opposition like it does in the States.

          • Anonymous says:

            I don’t think you’ve watched it for 20 years. Typical Today programme running order is to let the far right spout off until Farage texts in to say he’s cum, then announce there’s no time for alternate views.

          On BBCQt last night, Farage kicked serious panel arse. He got the biggest applause and twitter was alive with people praising his performance and what he said. He was the only one on the panel who talked sense and the only one which really connected with the audience. #FarageFever was even trending on twitter.

          I can’t remember the last time twitter had a politician trending due to the high level of praise he generated.

          The Bastard BBC made sure that he had the least amount of time on the show.


          • Big Mamma says:

            This morning the BBC Toady Programme subjected us to torture by putting on the raving and hysterical 2 Jags 3 houses Prescott.
            They are like a dog with a bone constantly in our face with their loony left ideology with their Labour and Union cronies.
            Strangely Lard Prescott exhulted in Twitter influence over the media – but who on earth would follow him except hacks seeking his demise – oh and pie scoffers.
            Of course there was nothing on Unite Union doing a U turn and renageing on the ACAS agreements. But at least we now know it is all about money and gold plated pensions.

      And you’ll find the 3 million immigr@nts that Labour let into the country have beaten you to it.

      And you’ll try to get a home. A nice one. But you’ll find that 3 million effnics let into the country by Labour have beaten you to it.

      And your kids will go to a school where English is a minority language.

      And one day, Jimmy, after a wasted lifetime, you’ll be in a care home, where the carers don’t spe*ak English, and nor will most of the residents. And you’ll sit there, Jimmy, watching Allah TV all day long, and the thought will finally enter your empty f*cking PC head, that NewLabour were wrong.

        It is better to attribute that quote to Dr. Samuel Johnson (from whom I and Abraham Lincoln borrowed it) and be thought erudite, than to misattribute it to me, and be thought lazy for not looking it up. The rumors of my authorship of that quote are greatly exaggerated. There is a similar thought in the Book of Proverbs in the Old Testament as well.

      Jimmy, that is typical of the racist ‘anti-racists’ to slur a man who believes in individualism. Which means all humans are created with exactly the same rights, regardless of gender, race, skin colour, religion etc.

      He is opposed to discriminating against people by giving special privilege to some other group based solely on some PC criteria, so the racist ‘anti-racists’ believe that he must be racist! BULLSHIT! And you falsely label him with foul racist language yourself.

      You cannot argue against his policies, because they make sense. He sticks up for the working class more than labour do. So because you are a tribalist, you have to resort to disgusting lies and smears. (a typical labour tactic).

      If labour had not failed the working class for all 13 years of their misrule, whilst they bailed out bankers and created a labyrinthine tax system full of loopholes for millionaires to exploit, labour might still be in power.

      Now UKIP are the only non-racist party to speak up for the working class, the British generally and entrepreneurs who want to grow successful businesses to employ people.

      Leftie playbook strategy #87

      Say something unacceptable and then pretend you were just talking like ‘one of them’ to ‘highlight an issue’ and thus somehow, in some nebulous way that only a BBC news editor can really understand but they’re not saying how, shift the blame onto the other party. For what you just said.

        Steve Lloyd. says:

        Melanie phillips tried to mention the problems that mass immigration brings with regard to available jobs, a couple of weeks ago, but was cowed by the negative attitude emanating from the hand picked audience, and the ominous stares from her fellow panellists. She backed down.

        Farage did no such thing. Basically told them to shut up and listen,even that vociforous welfare/housing officer chappie who disputed the get a national insurance no, get a job and or associated benefits line, they did. That man has gone up in my estimation and will definitely be getting this families vote from now on.

    Fish says:

    Has someone told Ken he’s not on and he can tear up his list of possible questions:

    1 Tax Avoidance
    2 Tax Avoidance
    3 Tax Avoidance
    4 Postal Votes
    5 Voter Fraud
    6 Income and Tax
    7 Tax Avoidance


  6. 6

    The metropolitan police have said that their investigation into the missing Ken accounts is still going on. In recent weeks several sightings of the vanished Silveta tax returns have been reported, but these have come to naught.

    A spokesman said that they were still hopeful of finding his signed accounts but there was more likelihood of discovering Madeline McCann than ever solving the long running tax evasion mystery.

    An advisor to mr Livingstone said “if Ken does fess up, then he’ll have to pay HMRC about £100,000 in unpaid tax. If he was actually going to be mayor, then it would be worth it. If however, as is still a possibility, he will lose, then why waste £100k?
    Ken will decide after the next yougov poll? If its still 49/51 the accounts will be revealed. Otherwise you can whistle for them.”

      • 150
        A pragmatist says:

        Last night’s performance by Nige will have done no harm at all to UKIP opinion poll ratings. He speaks for the vast majority of the country which is much more than what the media and other politicians do. We urgently need a sea change to educate the ignorant public of the potential benefits of UKIP.

        The three main parties will NEVER do anything about immigration or the EU because they are too afraid to confront the truth and criticise either one.

        Notice how they totally ignored the ROOT CAUSES of the problems facing London’s less well-off residents on QT last night. Without immigration, much of it from EU countries, not only would there be far more housing available but there would be many more jobs for the British unemployed and wages would be forced up by the shortage of supply.

        And then there are the problems of water shortages, traffic jams, energy supply, education etc which are also caused by too many people crowding into too small an area.

        Why are so many bigoted people so ignorant that they refuse to admit the patently obvious logic of this?

    Well well …. Isn’t it all going horribly wrong for the BBC? – For decades many of the population have questioned the true impartiality of the prog and of the claim that it goes out ‘live’ [It ain’t a live broadcast].

    I have attempted to get tickets numerous times – but to no avail … They only want ‘yes men oh and women – who bow to the duping of the masses.

    The BBC – needs a top down – [yes you too Lord Patten – and who’s bed were you in Re: your book and your spinlessnes to Murdoch’s wish … Hong Kong?] clear out of the ‘tainted’ – oh and that includes the likes of Lord Puttnam and some of his friends.

    5. Ken – Ellery? Well, who the hell then? Ken Ellery’s a beauty, I’d vote for ‘en to spite th’ others, but never trust ‘en, the b**t**d. Mind you, he’s dead. I’ll still vote for ‘en – ‘less it’s comin’ down stair-rods: see, I can be polite!
    6. So who’s this ‘Ken’ we’re talking ’bout: not that one with a beard who used to dress up like Dolly Parton, Kenny Everard, or some such? Not that Barlow-bloke the missus goes on about?
    7. Sorry, ol’ pal, but I aren’t intrested, really: bit like ‘lections ‘ere: ‘Who the hell’s she and standin’ f’r Council? ‘Must be bliddy incomer – yes, ‘ere we are: “As soon as I came down here, I joined Mebyon Kernow, and have been taking lessons in the Cornish Language. I understand the yearning of the Cornish to be both separate and a part…”

    Best put to sleep because that is what it does to me.


  17. 72
    Stan Butler says:

    Not watched it for years. Any pretence of balance was lost when Robin Day left. The scum at the BBC ensure a left wing audience, a left ring presenter, left wing questions and a bias to the left panel. They wouldn’t know where the centre of politics are. If Cameron had a pair he would set his sights on the BBC and dismantle it. He is however part of the left wing London establishment. He might appear blue on the outside, but he is a red on the inside. Like a stick of poor quality Blackpool rock.

    Greens election broadcast was bit unuseual , glossy and Benneton , more like a charity add than an election broadcast , was left thinking ah but where will you get the money from …..

    Rather enjoyed Andrew Neils interview with ed ,”for the 5th time ……” Given Ed has just about managed to upset every main channel interviewer going this week , with his repetition and non answer manouver , it was only fair AN had him by the scruff of the neck demanding some sense , I mean what is wrong with a straight yes or no on “would you keep the cuts ” tax payer gives him fully expensed life and £65k a year , i expect the him to provide answers for that ….. .As for text book ed quoted , I would think being able to see countries with big defecits having high unemployement , kinda of finsihed that trip up that garden path , when was it printed 1900 and somthing ……. surprised he didnt mention the effect it would have on kids going up the chimneys income …….. As for somewhat desperate throwaway solutions , bring projects forward , I may not have got my MBA , but isnt bringing forward akin to filling whats missing .

    mmm so ed when ingoverment what did you do to ensure that a warehouse with £7bn of uk sales paid corporation tax ……
    According to Dr Fox you put £778bn worth of debt onto books from 1997 to 2010 , which text book espouses runinomics on that macro scale then ?….. education , education , education .
