Patten of Cover Ups at BBC

As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, part-time BBC Trust Chairman Lord Patten is involved in a cover-up of a cover-up. The Beeb spent £3 million of licence fee-payers’ cash investigating the Jimmy Savile scandal and why a Newsnight exposé of it was shelved. It later emerged the Pollard Report did not contain the key piece of evidence that Mark Thompson was told about the allegations the show was preparing to make. This we already know, and Lord Patten continues to claim the report was all above board despite two weeks ago being played a tape recording of Nick Pollard admitting his report is deeply flawed and that he made “a mistake”. Despite this, Patten is dragging his feet with this new evidence. Perhaps he’s distracted by one of his other ten jobs. Stay tuned, there is more to come this week…

    Go Get Him Guido. The truth will out. says:

    Patten is THE prime example of the Old Boy network.

    He completely messed up the Community Charge (Poll Tax), something that should have been a success.

    He then got booted out as an MP.

    As a reward he was made the Governor of Hong Kong, which he proceeded to give away, and he cried.

    As a reward he was made an EU commissioner and promptly upset the Russians. And as a result was blocked from being EU president

    As a reward he was made a Lord and was kept out of the way.

    When Dave became PM he awarded Patten the ultimate reward of Chairman of the BBC Trust and he promptly went on to fuck up that job too.

    How a man who has failed in everything he has done has got to the top beggars belief, but that is exactly what Patten has done.

    “The Sun criticising the BBC? Whatever next? What possible motivation could there be for this?”

    Fair point. No love lost there. Well, lost, gained, lost again depending who the Sun supports politically, and the BBC doesn’t.

    Thing is, The Sun can do pretty much what it wants so long as it’s legal and take its chances on accuracy, bias, ethics and professional respect with its audience based on market forces.

    The nation’s least trusted and most untransparent national disgrace is of course uniquely funded by compulsion and currently unaccountable (guess who sits at the top of the BBC’s own secret oversight process?).

    Which may go some way to explaining such not-unconnected efforts as the BIJ/McAlpine attempted tribal stitch up that as far as I recall… the licence fee payer had to mop up too.

    Wishing Nadhim all the best with his tax return.

    The BBC feminists will also be queuing up to hang out with him as they now know Daley will not be objectifying them.

    The feminists will still have that nagging sense of let down though which their ideology gifts as a result of denying their sexuality.

    Who the fuck is Tom Daley anyway ?

    The correct term is: Trade Tariff.

    This was discussed ages ago and is designed to advantage the inferior quality and more expensive G’erman produced panels.

    Ch!na is ahead of the game with Solar cells – the European produced ones are rubbish. In the UK these are not truly viable as there is not enough Sun during the year.

    If this was engine or rotor failure then it was very likely foul play. The G’ermans are very adept at nobbling helicopters.

    Yet more on-the-hoof announcements from our politicians, utterly devoid of any forethought or, indeed, intention of putting them into action, eagerly lapped up and regurgitated by an asinine and lazy media.

  27. 27
    Fuck the EU says:

    I listen to maybe 60 mins top of BBC output per week, and have not heard a report talking about distances in a long time.

    If they are talking in km, in this country, that is retarded.

    They did used to talk in terms of kilometers when reporting on European stories some time back which confirms that Europe is a small landmass.

    A few months ago I was watching a news interview with an aircraft accident investigator who said that saving life and removing bodies took priority (as it obviously should) over preserving the aircraft wreckage and crash site intact.

    I was therefore puzzled why the it took until last night before the Glasgow team were able to take a look under the aircraft for bodies/survivors even though a family insisted that they had a loved one beneath it all.

    I remember Patten giving a speech in his guise as Chancellor of Newcastle University. Much it concerned how the Government ought to recognise the excellent work of universities and support them more. It was pure bull, of course; Fat Pang had no intention of using any influence he might have; if he had been giving a speech at a biscuit factory, his theme would have been how HMG should rally round the digestive and how he would butter Osborne to that end.

    1. Invoke article 50 and restore full sovereignty (border controls,fishing grounds etc) as it was before 1972.

    2. Abolish all taxes on petrol,electricity and gas.

    As an expat using metric for the last thirty years, I observe that the UK is totally confused. Imperial and metric (technically SI) are mixed up–on a hot day the weather girls gush about temperatures “in the nineties” (Farenheit), but on a cold day warn of “below zero” (Celsius). Fuel consumption is bizarrely calculated in “litres per mile”. No one measures their willie in centimetres, but they buy their cocaine in grams. Oh yes, a fraud that no one has noticed. Imperialists still imagine that a ton is a ton–e.g. 2240 lbs; for years in has either been a US “short ton” of 2000lbs or a metric ton of 1000kg.
    The metric ton is used when describing Gordon Brown’s gold sell-off, thus short-changing the truth by 529.83 troy ounces per ton.

    Do not talk down this marvellous export opportunity. The One-Child policy has created a gender imbalance among the Chinese in the vital 18-34 age group that has resulted in 20% more males than females—this imbalance will last for at least another 30 years. This means that many young Chinese men will have to turn—possibly to their friends, or turn their backs on sexual activity.
    As the world leader in officially sanctioned and government promoted buggery, pederasty and all forms of disgustingly unhygienic and unnatural sexual practices-Britain is ideally positioned to take advantage of this emerging market. We may not be able to offer China the engineering excellence of the Germans, the Technological know-how of the Americans, the luxury goods of the French and Italians, the raw materials of the Australians and South Africans—but we have huge Bum-Boy expertise.
    We should not miss this opportunity, even for all the tea-bagging in China

    It’s one of the final strongholds of the ‘closed shop’ – all students are signed up automatically, whether they want to be in it or not. Left-leaning career politicians get their first fix of power there.

    You are not really English, are you? Apart from not knowing that things could be described to a “T”, but never summed up to one, you appear unaware of irony. But then maybe you have been educated under the incomprehensible system.
    However, in partial defence: why do homosexuals who engage in sodomy and pederasty refuse to be described by the real words? Calling a man who buggers young men or gets buggered by them, “Gay”, is like calling a burglar an alternative shopper. Women who lead louche, feckless lives and have dozens of children from multiple men and then turn to the taxpayer for help are pretty damn useless by any measure, they are not “vulnerable people” (old folk in NHS murder wards are vulnerable). The Powers-that-be and the MSM bang on daily about the doctors, bankers, nuclear physicists and rocket scientists who flock to these shores to enrich our culture and boost our economy, but we tend to see a lot more unemployed Somali bus conductors with twelve kids on welfare, South Asians sleeping twenty to a wendyhouse in Slough and Hounslow and child-rape gangs who freely roam the Northern cities. The irony is that “polite PC” speech is designed to cover these things up.
    I was a bit out of order regarding “cripples” though, I really meant “mental cripples” specifically with the fact that recently the law was changed to allow members of parliament, judges and officials with severe mental illness (i.e. lunatics) to remain in their jobs.

    This man is one of many political stooges and puppets who can be relied upon to say what his masters want to hear. His sort serve whatever party is in power, and there is no possibility of getting shot of them. A SuperQuangocrat and a role model for the Yoof of the country.

    Rather expensive whitewash. They should have gone to B&Q, a large tub of white emulsion for £15.

    Och! These columns are full of Blasphemous posts from Ungodly Persons who seem to frequent Ungodly Premises where Strong Drink is sold. Encouraged, I fear, by the BBC, a Temple of Beelzebub staffed by Whiskypalians, Whiskyolics and Whiskyterians, all Slaves to the Demon Drink. Woe to the Imbibers of Strong Drink, Blasphemous Heathens who allow their dogs to bark on the Sabbath Day.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
