BBC Editor: “Tories are Lower Than Vermin”

Guido was not well-versed in the career of Martin Plaut before today, but he can already tell the BBC World Service Africa editor has a penchant for perfect timing. In a Q&A Plaut was asked “who do you hate and why?” His response was, well, rather straight to the point:

“Tories.

As Aneurin Bevan said: ‘No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.’”

Charming…

          Unfortunately, not even the SAS have the right to carry a Glock , even by mistake; but get real, he wasn’t carrying it, his was found 4 years later in an unrelated raid against a room mate!

          The latest Sgt to go to Military Prison was a bit of an error. He can carry a Glock on the streets of London (and other cities) to protect us, but not have one in a sealed cage, forgetting it after deaths of his friends and brain damage he himself endued raising money for charity, without being busted and doing 18mths in the clink.

          Not good.

          This man needs protection from our civilian values.

        I was on the train this morning and a BBC manager was ranting about “standards in the British media” and how “they always look for the negative angle” and how “they need to be restrained and made to adhere to BBC standards”.

        He continued in this vein for a while, complaining that the dropped Saville Newsnight episode was “because of the high standards of evidence we require for a story” and that “while we know there are over 400 allegations now, we had no evidence at the time”.

        He went on to describe George Entwistle as one of the “most intelligent person I know” and Helen Broaden as a “fantastic boss”, followed by “the BBC is the best company in the world!”.

        Toward the end of his 15 minute rant, he got onto Murdoch, noting that “he makes me sick to the core of my soul”.

        I have read a lot about this BBC mentality but it was rather shocking to have it thrust in my face for 15 minutes this morning.

            Yes I did. When he said that “Murdoch makes me sick to the core of my soul” I said that he was supposed to be impartial and his £3.4 bn budget was given on condition of impartiality. I said that expressing such a loathing for his competitor clearly showed that he wasn’t impartial and thus the license fee should be abolished. I followed up by telling him that whilst he was quite happy to dismiss the Saville allegations as “lacking in evidence at the time”, the BBC were quite happy to destroy a man’s reputation based upon no evidence, but rather roumer and innuendo. I stated that it was clear the BBC had an agenda for the Newsnight of “senior politician from the Thatcher era” and impartiality was not it. I told him that they had destroyed a man’s reputation with no evidence and that his so called “standards” clearly didn’t apply to the BBC. I finished by stating that while Murdoch may make him “sick to the core of his soul”, I thought he and his kind were utter scum.

      This is why it is necessary to no longer have a “British State Broadcaster”.

      It should be shut down and closed. Its archives should be opened for free for all time in the British Library, and a few, vrey few, could be auctioned as being worth the money.

        The British university is a surreal place. Lecturers detached from reality; yes they often trot out the Thatcher myth it covers most things. The students parroting back socialist teachings like they live in North Korea; either ignorant of their own history or ashamedly believing in a warped version. Everything is very PC. Religion is wrong unless it is Islam. Women’s right trump all even the holy of hollies climate change. The Guardian sells out every day and is often held up in tutorials as the apogee of journalism. Nuclear weapons are bad even though they kept money in the economy that kept the middle class living standards rising and kept their young out of uniform. Arguing is better than knowing, because what you know may need to be changed. As well as cutting youth unemployment figures extending tertiary education to all extend indoctrination too.

        The punchline to this all is that GCSE and A-level history syllabi during the Blair era concentrated on the danger of “arm band politics” and the dangers of propaganda (especially by state organs.)

          Well, they thought they knew what they were doing. From an institutionally biased BBC perspective the story was just too good to pass up. The possibility that it didn’t hold water never occurred to them. In their institutionally biased way it ticked every box imaginable.

          Ie endless opportunity to link ‘Tories’, ‘Thatcher’ and ‘P*a*e*d*o*s’ knowing full well the effect this would have on the voters just as the Millie Dowler allegations did for the NoW despite them (as far as I know) being equally baseless. As Boris says ‘The wish was father to the thought’. It was just so good it had to be true. Basic caution went out the window. This was it. Finally. They had the hated Tories over a barrel.

          You can picture the excitement on their hate-filled little faces. First Murdoch. Now the Tories. It was all coming together perfectly.

          Plus, of course, they were under a certain amount of pressure over Saville and were looking to ‘change the narrative’ or, at the very least, tar their tormentors, the Tories, with the same brush.

          As today’s revelation of the ‘scientific consensus’ behind BBC climate output shows this is not an isolated incident. This is full-on ‘1984’ territory. Decide the desired outcome then write the story.

          Plenty more where that came from too.

    if Labour’s greatest asset is on BBC. Funded by a compulsory tax on people with TVs, whether or they watch the BBC, institutionally left wing and statist, self regarding and arrogant. It is Oxbridge dominated — so naturally elitist and much of its recruitment was conducted through the Guardian recruitment pages. The same Guardian that is the in-house newspaper of the BBC (what a surprise), the NHS, teachers and social services departments. Strangely, they are all taxpayer funded as well — with a nice pension provision. All taxpayer funded.

    If ITV and Sky TV can survive without forcing everybody else to pay for them, isn’t it time the BBC joined up with the real world? Scrap the licence completely. Sell-off the channels and let them sink or swim on their own merits: Capitol Radio and others do, so why do we need a subsidised Radio One? Same goes for a whole range of channels that few people listen to. Get rid of them. They’re a waste of our money and a monument to the BBC’s empire building.
