        Two things: celebration of ‘cultural diversity’ within the socio-economic matrix, and reinforcement of the faux evo-sociology premise that ‘cultural diversity’ is a contiuum that cannot exclude apes and the like.

        BBC = Busy Broadcasting Codswallop.

    Be fair to Auntie. The News comes flat-packed these days, and the pictorial instructions made just as much of a monkey out of Auntie as they do the rest of us.

    Contents: i = 6, e = 11, a = 7 ….

    There is nothing too trivial for the news on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation these days, such is the extent of their dumbing down now. Their real favourite is a contrived news item which, coincidentally, just happens to be the subject of a BBC programme. They even advertise their own programmes in the weather forecasts, such is their desperation for ratings.

      Bolshevik Broadcasting Corpse says:

      Actually the preferred news item is one of product placement in the form of a non-critical regurgitated press release. One would imagine that there are benefits to news staff for doing this. Probably very hard to trace those benefits, despite there being at least one such item on the news every single day.

    Just gotta an email from the BBC and totally ignored my complaints. I am not paying for this unaccountable sh’t. I will have my say in court.

    I am don’t feel sorry for these idiots. A pair of hoons.

    I agree. Many BBC stories are celebrity nonsense and regional trivia.

    They’ve triumphed here by combining two flyweight topics, shopping and animals, into one story.

    Lord Reith would not be pleased.

    Not news. Everyone who shops at Ikea is a monkey.

    The monkey says:

    Last person to offer me a banana was Savile but he insisted I was blind folded

    ‘Public service journalism’… It certainly made a monkey out of them.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
