      Savile is just the tip of the iceberg says:

      Never mind Jimmy Savile. What about the BBC declaring that the BBC AGW science is settled and there will be no voice of dissent on their airwaves.

        There’s no need for such distractions. We need to move forward and forget about needless debate on settled science.

        I’d be interested to know the identity of the nine ‘experts’ who said that there weren’t enough homosexuals in childrens’ TV.
        Since there always have been a proportion (who? – I don’t care, NoMB) the report clearly intends that the sexuality of presenters (of all programmes, in fact) must be overt in future, and subject to quota. Whether this will lead to cunning heterosexuals making false claims in order to gain accelerated promotion, one can only speculate.
        If in future we see Bear Grylls or Ray Mears skinning a moose while wearing pink high heels we may deduce that an element of gamesmanship is going on.

    “No evidence of a cover up”

    Just a remakable set of coincidental circumstances and a self serving bunch of public sector troughers who happened to benefit enormously from suppressing the truth?

    Welcome to East Germany.

      Pollards – the new name for Dulux One Coat Whitewash.

      The scary thing is they expect the people to just accept that there is no culture of child molestors at the BBC – the evidence screams to the contrary.

      Stop funding child m;lestors – stop paying the License Tax.

        Does have a ring to it: To Pollard.

        That is the cutting off of the top of an organization to encourage dense growth of ineffective management.

        Absolutely necessary to avoid any of the management being singled out in the next inquiry into a cover-up and safe guard their lifestyles.

      BBC is institutionally abusive. people join for life and will do nothing to upset the apple cart/gravy train. that means a culture of extreme deference. it is in these cultures that bullying and child abuse flourish.

      the only way to stop this horrendous abuse is the suspension of the license fee and for the BBC to behave more like a business.

      of course from the usual suspects we’ll hear ‘its ok now, used to be bad but not any more” – until the next time.

      I’ve cancelled my direct debit. I’ll not condone child abuse by looking the other way, paying for it or supporting a culture that fosters it.

        ‘I’ve cancelled my direct debit'; me too. They don’t waste a second ringing you up! They’re polite enough when you say you’re not renewing, but point out that they may pay a visit to check. Am I correct in the belief that they have no right of entry? The scary red lettering on the next missive that informs you that you are ‘under inspection’ strongly implies that they do.

          They need a search warrant to enforce entry – and to everyone’s relief they would take a copper along, but they would need a fair bit of proof for this.

          BTW There is absolutely no evidence that TV Detector Vans ever worked at all.

          Anyone can wonder up your garden path – a thing called implied right of access, which you need to withdraw that right in writing so they can only look from the pavement in front of your house. If in any event they do come in and the set is any way tuned to TV channels that is proof enough – even if it hasn’t been turned on since the licence expired.

          I told the bastards I had no money (is true) and couldn’t afford it so I stopped paying. I also cut the aerial lead to ensure the TV couldn’t work and I cancelled the Virgin cable service (kept the broadband though and now just watch the aggregators, watch what I want when I want to and no cost and its legit as its not live TV).

          Rest assured by one thing, the Capita enforcement squad will try to trick you by saying things about the Eastenders’ plots, guess what, they only catch out unmarried mothers. When they are fined/imprisoned it just costs the state (you and me) even more.

          The SOCIALIST LOVING BBC PROPAGANDA MACHINE MUST DIE and be replaced by subscription services or those paid by adverts.

          Ask yourself, how much would you pay for Jonathan Ross.

      Yep, I figured that when I read that the report said there was “no evidence of a cover-up” at the BBC, or words to that effect. Just another case of the ruling classes circling the wagons. I hope they don’t expect us to believe them.

    politicians and the crosses they should be tied to says:

    They did not find something they studiously tried and succeeded to avoid looking for, welcome to the age of the whitewash fake inquiries. Its a wonder they didnt try the climategate whitewash technique of interviewing no witnesses, gathering no evidence or even bothering to turn up, just a quick ‘you are of course fully innocent of everything’ question to the crooks and job done.

      This is not a festival. This IS the end game.

      In 100 years time they will not distinguish one year from the next but just remember it as the event that happened that led to the new life.

      We hear about “preppers”. Their problem is that they think it will happen on the day the riots come. No, it will just be a long slow fall to lawless enclaves. Some will hold out longer, but others areas have already fallen. It is the selfish individual that is our enemy, not a mass rabble of rioters and looters.

      This is our leaders decision because our leaders fear the resulting war if we were some how stronger than the rest. Instead the war comes daily to the unprotected weak. But that is fine as the leaders are the ones with the protection.

      So our life in this country is determined by comparison to other countries. As long as we boom and bust in line with everyone else we will not put our head over the parapet. We will be safe from war as long as we are not the best or the worst. But they have the wrong enemy, the enemy is already here. It is of our own creation: the selfish individual.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
