    the biggest problem of all is not mentioned – Melanie Phillips and indeed all right wing journos. Or maybe just journos in general. At least MPs have some sort of mandate – journos do not. They get about 1,000 X air time than (say) trade union leaders who represent millions.

    Mark Steel tonight. Another one for the comedians.

    I like him. He does good standup and he’s an openly Labour, card carrying socialist. So he doesn’t have to pretend to dislike the Tories because of all their Guardian reading media-metrosexual friends and agents. He dislikes the Tories because they are Tories.

    agree of journos – their view aren’t representative and don’t try to be – just the class loudmouths.

    Biggest problem is Dimbleby. He’s shit and everything that David Cameron is accused of being and worse – ex-Bullingdon, out of touch, plummy voiced twat. He doesn’t even have to understand ordinary Britons. Throw the bastard out. Worst of all he’s a champagne socialist – biased giving left wingers more time to speak and a sneaky advocate for zaNu Labia.

    The left = enablers of child abuse says:

    Men who groomed and abused vulnerable girls in Oxford acted “under the noses” of the authorities who showed “almost wilful blindness”, a court heard. In May, seven members of a p*edophile ring were found guilty of r*ping and trafficking girls aged as young as 11.

    Sally O’Neill QC said it was “shocking” that two of the victims were able to freely leave their children’s home to meet their abusers.

    Mohammed Karrar, 38, and his brother Bassam Karrar, 34, and another set of brothers, Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, were convicted alongside Kamar Jamil, 27, Assad Hussain, 32, and Zeeshan Ahmed, 28. They are due to be sentenced on Thursday afternoon.

    The abuse inflicted on one victim left her suicidal and another with post-traumatic stress, the court heard.

    Statements from victims’ parents were also read out.

    The court heard from the mother of one of the victims how she went from being a “loving, sweet child” to “sullen, secretive and evasive” following the abuse.

    The statement also said the mother and her husband were “scrutinised, judged and assessed” by professionals during the period their daughter was being abused, as if somehow it was their fault. She said they were “condescended to” and almost made to feel they were “inadequate, overreacting or wrong”.

    The left = enablers of child abuse says:

    The most telling part is: the mother and her husband were “scrutinised, judged and assessed” by professionals during the period their daughter was being abused, as if somehow it was their fault. She said they were “condescended to” and almost made to feel they were “inadequate, overreacting or wrong”.

    That sums up the left/public sector/social workers to a T. They shifted the focus to the parents of the victims and were not interested at all in what the muslim men were doing. This is why I hate the left with an intense passion. They claim to stand for equality and against misogyny, etc, but in truth they are utterly shameless hypocrites more concerned about being politically correct and flaunting their right-on credentials about islam and muslims.

    Can’t actually see the problem here this time.

    Isn’t the remit ‘Educate, inform or entertain?’

    Clearly QT serves the latter admirably, albeit for those of limited brain.

    Of course there would be a serious problem were the BBC to try and claim that it is in any way designed to educate or inform, especially impartially.

    Not even a BBC Editor, Lords Hall or Patten would try that punt, surely?

    Now, when’s Jonnie Marbles ‘reporting’ for Newsnight again?

    neilfutureboy says:

    I believe the BBC have twice had somebody on from UKIP who wasn’t Nigel Farage. I don’t think they could have done much more without admitting that UKIP is a major party not a one man show.

    I suspect a fair number of other graphs sho0wing the great number of other things wrong with QT. Indeed since has nearly 200 guests a year and this covers only 38 over 2 1/2 years it must be showing only a small part of the BBC’s censorship.

    For example graphs showing the number of politicians compared to a whole range of other experts.

    Comparing the proportions paid by government (including quangos) compared to the national average.

    Comparing ratio of those who support the EU to nat average.

    Ditto those who observe catastrophic global warming.

    Ditto death penalty.

    Ditto unlimited immigration.

    Ditto of all parties compared to ratio of public support.

    How fortunate we live in a country where press freedom is so important that the BBC can hide answers to all these questions and thousands more by using a “necessary journalistic freedom” opt out from having to answer FoI questions.

    “Stop being such an arse man..you’re such an arse..isn’t he? I mean …he is..”

    Now I don’t ever listen. It was only a few years ago that I stopped. it had become not just predictable but boring.
    Jeremy Hardy going off on one. Funny. But its the same off on one. The evil baby eating Tories. And each member of the panel will do the same. The same rant.
    Same with the Now Show. Its very well written but each performer does their ‘I’m against the government’ bit. And too often, its the same bit. With much the same jokes.

    The guardian had the same chart, did it not ?

    But if the chart listed political parties, UKIP’s appearances would not reflect their share in opinion polls.
    If the troika of political establishment just sent one rep between them each week , QT would have space for a much more diverse panel, enabling the viewers to hear from a far wider range of opinions.

    QT should not be a party political broadcast for the troika each week.

    Apropos of whether you can understand what’s being said or not:

    Hanfstaengl is reputed to have replied, “He appears that way to them only because he IS a wild-eyed fire-breathing ranter– even to people who understand every word!”

    The only scientists the BBC knows are the ones who believe in man-made global warming, and who are in receipt of large research grants from the tax-payer in order to promote that belief.

    Indeed, everyone who gets a large grant from the tax-payer is a friend of the BBC. Then they can be invited on to Radio 4 to complain about “savage cuts”, in case they may not be getting even larger grants in the future.

    Question Time is the BBC’s attempt at entertainment.

    It definitely does not inform or educate since the participants give us their biased opinions about subjects that they know little or nothing about.

    I much prefer to be given the facts by someone who has independently looked into the situation and then be left to make up my own mind.

    The thoughtful approach to politics with arguments based on evidence seems to have gone, if indeed it was ever there.

    I stopped watching Question Time many years ago. Saves having to buy a new TV everytime I would have thrown something at the screen.

    Example did Mr Hitler manage to finance his crackpot ideas,well no he did not in that he needed finance and just were did that finance come from?.
    Well it came from fine upstanding banksters and other industrialists and did it matter to these guys how many lives would be lost,well absolutely not,and these guys are still at it today.
    However things are now changing in that we have the net so that what went on is being exposed on a daily basis and a lot of what went on IMHO is causing a lot of bedwetting amongst the high up’s.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
