BBC News Channel Editor Broadcasts Anti-UKIP Rant

Jasmine Lawrence is the editor of the BBC News Channel, where it is safe to say she has significant influence over the BBC’s coverage of the European elections and politics in general. Lawrence’s Twitter feed largely consists of retweets of Labour MPs and left-wing journalists. Today she has been sharing her thoughts on UKIP, joining those using the anti-UKIP parody #WhyImVotingUKIP hashtag to attack the party:

The BBC’s Charter requires its journalists to be impartial, something you would have thought they might be particularly careful about at election time. For such a senior BBC journalist to openly broadcast an attack on a political party the day before an election is inappropriate to put it mildly…

UPDATE: Lawrence has now deleted her Twitter account.

    As ever Dan’s blog post today is worthwhile comedy reading if anyone needs a laugh.

    He is very angry that Ed Miliband won’t sink quite as low as Hodges in trying to smear Farage. He uses the word racist about 25 times. He gives every impression that he was foaming at the mouth as he typed. And, as always, he gets torn to shreds by the readers. Being a decent man that I am, I confess to feeling a little concerned for him, he is displaying outward signs of some emotional problems, ranting away, howling at the moon and clearly slipping ever further from reality as it becomes increasingly clear that most people simply ignore his insistence that anyone who disagrees with the think tank he works for called MigrationMatters must be racist.

    On a good note for women I suggest reading this piece – it absolutely, and correctly shreds the piece in the telegraph yesterday by louisa peacock where she was celebrating getting a man fired and claiming that a dress code being applied to women is “sexist” with those utter morons at the everydaysexism campaign.

    Proof at least that not all women are as stupid and shallow as Cathy Newman, Caroline Criadoperez, Harriet Harperson etc.

    Which man has never heard “Sorry lads, only letting in groups with women tonight”? Feminists now have labour held seats for parliament where men are banned from running. They have special bursaries set aside for them at nearly every university. The majority of golf clubs that admit only one sex discriminate against men (never heard that on the BBC?) And now they want to be able to not have to abide by dress codes.

    It’s not as if the BBC hasn’t given UKIP plenty of coverage. They’re never off Question Time either! Who cares what someone puts on their personal twitter account. It even says: “Any views displayed are my own & not those of the BBC”. But the BBC itself definitely isn’t politically impartial. Absolutely nothing of the Tory/LibDum privatisation of the NHS, where 70% of contracts have gone to private firms. Nothing of when section 75 was voted through the House of Lords. Enjoy having to pay for American style health insurance and slipping into even more debt, lining the pockets of those who have sold you down the river to profit from their friends who own these private firms.

            That figure has been pulled out of your ass and is meaningless.

You only have to look at the States to see the damage it does over there. Sounds like you’re the fool that has been eating up the propaganda garbage spewed. You don’t pay nearly as much now as you will have to do in future. depending on if you can afford the right kind of insurance. But keep your head buried in your own ass.

You’ll certainly be paying more than what you currently pay into your NI, and privatisation definitely doesn’t mean that it will be “better”; profit is put above your healthcare. It’s nothing but pure ignorance that you think because healthcare is privatised, that there suddenly won’t be any scandals, malpractice, mistakes, abuse, corruption, or neglect. If you knew what you were talking about, you’d know that all of that happens in US hospitals, not to mention patient dumping — the refusal to treat people because of inability to pay or insufficient insurance — which is unheard of over here. That shouldn’t happen under the most expensive healthcare in the world. Our NHS gets starved of funds by our government (first under Labour, now under the coalition who under the ideology of austerity are deliberately priming it for back-door privatisation, as they have vested interests and are set to profit from selling to their donor chums), and those inevitable mistakes are then used as a black mark against the NHS.
            You also slate the system here, but it’s funny how France has the best rated (SOCIALISED) healthcare in the world which is an almost identical model to the UK (who came 18th in the world, and we spend less on our NHS than France), while the US has the most expensive in the world and doesn’t even come close at 37th according to the World Health Organization’s ranking, which is pitiful.

They are given ‘light’ jobs and can take time off when they like – if their line manager says no they bleat on about prejudice. Meanwhile I am usually the first in to work and the last to leave with no light workload or time off to slaughter a pig inhumanely for some festival event or attend a rainbow ‘pride’ march.

In other organisation (probably even in any other news organisation.) she would be shown the door in short order for posting a comment like that during work hours and possibly work hours. I can’t see how her position is even remotely tenable. Mind you it is the BBC.

    Hopefully they might be next line to receive a stiff kicking from Theresa May.

    I don’t actually mind paying the licence fee. What I object to is part of it going towards a clearly biased politicalised news channel. It needs to have a root & branch clear out.

      I’m angry that she can write disgusting things about my husband and son without even knowing them. She is a racist.
      My husband has worked all of his life in a menial job for very little reward. Never moaned and worked really hard. Despite losing his father in world war 11 and having very little education he is a carpenter,metallurgist,artist and good at many things. He is white,middle aged and a great guy. He is not racist or sexist and this female,Jasmine Lawrence has no right to say he is. I think her own father must be white and I wonder if she includes him in her rant.
      My son, also white,is a scientist working long hours in chemistry labs attempting to improve people’s lives by improving and discovering drugs.
      I’m sad and horrified that the BBC can employ ignorant personnel such as Ms.Lawrence and let such people vent their spleen with impunity. Shame on you all.

    When UKIP has been successful in the E.U.elections tomorrow,it should seriously think about setting up a national newspaper. Enough people would buy it if it told the truth without bias. It could hire 1st class journalists,reporters and editors. Maybe Mr Sykes would support it financially until it got on to its feet. And why not a broadcasting company. We are sick of hearing bbc bias and left wing claptrap. I could go on but what about these ideas to start. You know the saying, from little acorns,mighty trees will grow.

    Even for the BBC, the stream of lefty bollocks on her twitter feed is pretty awful. Most of it during working hours.

    The disclaimer has no meaning. Merely mentioning that she works for the BBC is enough. If it had been a suitably anonymous account with a pseudonym she might have got away with it, but OFCOM should throw the book in this case.

    If she’s not sacked, then there’s something very wrong.

    As she is a journalist for the BBC, personal viewpoints of any description shouldn’t be made public if she’s associating herself with that organisation. In that stance, keeping personal viewpoints personal should have been paramount. The BBC are meant to be impartial and this adds a dangerous bias to the democratic process especially since there are so many weak-minded and impressionable fools that make up the majority of the voting populace.

    She’s got a valid point though. And if this thread is anything to go by then UKIP supporters are scum who should be burned instead of being allowed to vote on things they don’t fully understand.

    Bring on the hate, it’s the only thing those divisionist idiots are good at.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
