See the BBC Noticeboard Mocking Tory Cock-Ups

The Sunday Telegraph had an amusing little story revealing the BBC office noticeboard covered with some classic news stories taking the mick out of Tory MPs. Well here it is in all its politically impartial glory:

The Mirror’s James Lyons is delighted that his photo of a tired and emotional Tim Loughton wading into the Indian Ocean is still enjoyed by staff at the Beeb, who were clearly also fans of ‘Gun Nut Tory Tried to Shoot Cat’. Which, to be fair, are both pretty funny. No doubt they’ve got a noticeboard devoted to laughing at Labour MPs the other side of the office. Right?

    21st century and we need a TV licence to be subjected to the daily diatribe of leftist dribble.

    The BBC is the Labour / Unions / EU mouthpiece.

    I have n ot renewed my TV license now for two years because of the bias – why should I fund a political organisation I disagree with?

    Let the Left pay for this vile broadcaster, it’s their instrument after all.

    Just SHUT UP, vote LABOUR and PAY YOUR TELLY TAX.

    You fucking serfs. How dare you see our notice board.

    Does the fat useless twat Patten ever visit these parts of the Biassed Broadcastin Corporation ? I doubt it. These shits should be financed by Unite , not by taxpayers.

    No need even for that. A one line Bill in Parliament, making it no longer an offence not to pay the TV tax. Simples.

    The BBC says:

    I’m sure you already know that all our comics are left-wing because we can’t find any right-wing ones.

    Similaly, we couldn’t find any newspaper articles mocking Labour MPs.

    So we are impartial.

    The fact that BBC managers think this sort of thing is OK says everything about the BBC.

    Because Labour and the Conservatives are the only real nationwide parties. I can’t think of another one of any relevance. Can you?

    Not the BBC says:

    Because we have such a market share (paid for by the license paying schmucks) we set the agenda.
    Now pay up and shut up.

    Agreed.
    We’ll have another investigation at great expense to prove the same next year.

    Didn’t Poseur Patten once claim to be a Conservative? He didn’t support Liz McKean when she left the BBC over the cancellation of the Savile report that never was. She was a rare beacon of honesty and unbiased reporting at the dying BEEB. The fact that most of the Newsnight crew boycotted her leaving do says all we need to know about that shitty conglomerate of crap, as Spike used to call it.

    Well i cant believe Cameron didnt shut it down and make it pay its way like every other news broadcaster does. For Gods sake everybody with half a brain cell could see which flag they were flying in the election and they have got worse not better.

    UKIP. Candidates in pretty much every single constituency in 2015. Even the establishment parties and media expect UKIP to win the most votes, biggest share of the vote and most MEPs in 2014, so that would count as a national party in my book.

    If winning a national election outright does not qualify you as a nationwide party in your book, then you need to look hard at your definition.

    Why are such shithouse organisations like the BBC and NHS totally off limit for when it comes to discussing selling them off? I know that 99.995% of the country are mongloid fuktards but surely it’s about time they started to become accountable?

    It’s pretty simple. Labour are hard left, Tories are centre-right. Labour believe in higher taxes and price controls, Tories don’t. Labour want to increase the size of the state, Tories want to shrink it.

    If the BBC license fee was reduced to say £26 p.a every hard working family would be about £120 a year better off . Why should we pay for this endless left wing bias . On a recent edition of the a programme hosted by Brian Blessard most of the content was being very rude about Margaret Thatcher . Blair , Brown , Miliband did not get a mention . The problem in the UK is that the right spent their time working while the left , can spent its time on being nasty to the Conservatives .

    How about a strike not to pay the BBC license fee .

    Just when the government are attempting to re-write history, and teach school kids to believe that WW1 was a ‘Great’ War, along comes Jeremy Paxman with his comment that, “There were plenty of stupid generals, of course there were, but the idea that they deliberately set out to get their men killed strikes me as the delusion of one fool.” Now does that sound at all left-wing?

    The centre-left Labour Party want a bigger state, since it benefits the poor and middle-class the most. The right-wing Tory Party (and their big business mates) want to shrink the state and their tax bill. Tories: Once the Nasty Party – always the Nasty Party.

    The "Great" War says:

    Sadly, many people believe that this bully-boy attack is for real, and are not able to see it for the control tactic it really is – an attempt to keep the BBC fearful in the lead up to the next election. For were the BBC a nest of dangerous wing-wingers, why have they returned to calling WWI the “Great” War? And, by defending the way the lions where led by donkeys, is not Jeremy Paxman acting more like a government lackey?

    Not more fake reaction? As you lot know full well, the truth is that the bully boy government is only attacking the BBC, and talking about shutting it down, in the run up to the next election. IT IS JUST A CONTROL TACTIC!

    The "Great" War says:

    “On that first day of the Battle of the Somme, 20,000 British soldiers were killed and 35,000 wounded, but this did not make General Haig want to change his methods. He ordered more attacks but the same tragic story was repeated each time. Against the advice of experts who said he did not have enough, he sent fifty tanks into battle in September. Twenty-nine broke down before they even reached the battlefield and the rest soon got stuck in the mud. By the end of the battle, the British and French had lost 620,000 men and the Germans 450,000. The allies had advanced 15 kilometres at the furthest point.”

    From Brooman’s, ‘The Great War’, 1991.

    Stuart McCarthy says:

    History-psycho says:
    Many things wrong with Haig, but 4 months before the Somme the Germans launched the disaster of Verdun, with losses possibly greater. And in 1918 the British Army, with 62 divisions against 90 French ones, killed and captured more Germans and played the major part in the German defeat. Haig was the British commander. Not everything Joan Littlewood said is true.

    History-psycho says:

    Ludendorff called the Somme “the muddy grave of the German army.”

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
