I agree with Tournesol on Andrew Neil. He was far too good and honest for the bbc under Lord Haw Haw’s regime.

Losos The best political TV reporter/analyst by a long distance is Andrew Neil. He is scrupulously objective, has an amazing command of the detailed facts and the history, is wise to the ways that politicians try to dodge the question, has the gravitas to hold his own against anybody and does not allow his ego or his personal views to get in the way. The BBC sacked him last week. They have replaced him with a team of light weights. The sackable offence he committed was that he did not adhere to the BBC policy of being anti-conservative and anti-Brexit. Anyone who watched him could not tell what his views were - he might be pro or anti but he never let that get in his way. He aimed to ask politicians the questions they would have preferred to avoid and treated left and right alike. He even had Diane Abbott as a regular contributor until she joined the shadow cabinet. Not enough for the beeb. What a wrong headed decision. The BBC continues to lose my respect.

eipgam, You seem to be as snide and as twisted as the typical BBC presenter Losos describes. Anyway, why are you posting? I thought I'd told you to clear off a couple of weeks ago.

I think she can spell though.... Why don't you watch C4 then? Or ITV? They're planning two series of Love Island per year now.

Message picked up this morning on the airwaves. "Brussels calling. Brussels calling. You british brexitists are running out of time to surrender. Even your impartial national broadcaster, the BBC, under Lord Haw Haw, and with unbiased presenters like Emily Maitlis and Mishal Husain, are reporting that you are all crazy and washed-up. We hope that you are reconsidering your position from your 'special place in Hell', allocated to you by our good-looking Mr Tusk. We will be coming soon for your money, 39B Euros, and for your fish. We will not be buying your lamb here in France any longer and we can assure you that you will not find another market for it. There is no truth in the talk of Japan and India agreeing deals to purchase british lamb and beef."

Message picked up today on the airwaves. "Brussels calling. Brussels calling. Here in the EU, we are in desperate need of your UK's 39 Billion Euros (or preferably pounds). I know you have said you may withhold this until we come to our senses but you will regret it if you do. Here in France & Belgium we need this money because we are still paying Germany the agreed fee for not bombing our Paris patisseries and breadshops in WW2 and for sparing the chocolate factories in Belgium from the massive damage handed out to London and other UK cities."

Getting I’m becoming more and more impressed with Boris. My advice to him would be to say to the alcoholic Juncker “ either the Irish backstop goes or we go without a deal. You know my phone number. When you have made a decision give me a call” and leave it at that. As it is, Boris can just sit back and wait until 1st November. No-confidence vote, ignore it. Put forward policies that the public agrees on and if the opposition vote them down they will pay in the polls. I also see that Maccron is threatening a trade shutdown unless we pay the EU the 39 billion. How does that work? They sell a lot more to us than we do to them. Nose spite face comes to mind.

BBC calling. BBC calling. Lord Haw Haw, Director General, and his other crony quislings at the British Brainwashing Commissariat, commonly known as the BBC, has now taken the steps of recruiting religion to attempt to degrade the reputation of the new Prime Minister. The Sunday morning Today programme, on Radio 4, described as 'a look at the religious & ethical issues of the week' presented by William Crawley, examined, with the help of 2 qualified but specially selected, washed-up theologians, whether Boris Johnson was 'theologically literate' and made the comparison with Trump on their use of religious references and analogies. The proceedings were, as expected, completely one-sided. My references to Lord Haw Haw and 'quisling' draw from the clear parallel of these WW2 terms with a modern day definition of traitor as 'one who collaborates with an enemy force against the will of the people.' The theft of £135 from the over 75s, to further fund his propaganda, just adds to the treachery.

Getting Totally agree. I don’t think Linaker brings anything special to MOTD. And if the BBC want to do what they should re over 75s perhaps they should discount the licence by 75% and get rid of the ‘celebrityR17; presenters. Re Linaker I’m pretty sure if he tweeted Leave messages they’d sack him.

Completely agree with that Meanwhile. Why on earth are license payers funding a £2m per year salary for Lineker? Any other presenter could just as easily introduce the football. When I heard a BBC executive quizzed on this a few months ago he said "the public demand we have the best football presenters". Do we?? I've never met anyone who said they'd stop watching Match of the Day if Lineker wasn't on it?!!

"BBC puts fairness and supporting those most in need at the heart of decision on over 75s licence fees". These are the BBC's own words, written on 10th June 2019, as the heading to their explanation of the decision to remove the free TV licence from people over 75 years old. Look closely at the words and phrases used. 'Fairness'. 'Supporting those most in need'. 'At the heart of.' I can think of a solution even 'fairer' and even 'more supporting of those most in need' than the BBC solution. Get rid of John Humphrys and his £675,000 salary and use it to reinstate the free licence for 5000 people over 75. Do the same to Emily Maitliss and reinstate it for another 2000 over 75. Do the same for all the grossly overpaid charlatans on the BBC books until you save enough to reinstate the free licence for all 75s. This sounds to me a bit 'fairer' and 'more supporting of those most in need' than the BBC solution. And Gary Lineker's dismissal would relieve another 12000, enough to fill a moderate football ground.

The BBC's Today programme this morning, had Martha (Grandma) Carney interviewing Baroness Manningham-Buller, Chair of The Wellcome Trust, on the subject of scientific research at Wellcome, in particular after brexit. Grandma's final question asked what did the Baroness (in view of her ex-MI5 link) think of the re-appointment of Gavin Williamson by Boris Johnson only 2 months after his sacking by Mrs May for leaking information. The question was unanswered. To use the words of eipgam here yesterday, maybe this question was "legitimate questioning about bare faced lies, opportunistic volte-face manoeuvres, and all sorts of other imbecilic and immoral behaviour". I expect, in this case, it was probably a volte-face manoeuvre, whatever that is.

Minny says "many just want fairness". Would that be the kind of fairness that says "fair enough, the people voted for Brexit so we should really get on and actually implement it"??

MEANWHILE Actually I think many just want fairness and better equality. I guess it depends on what you define as 'their own'. I'm tired of excessive greed. Unfortunately we will not have the freedoms you think we will have. Sovereignty is a pipe dream. As soon as you trade with others you give away a little bit of sovereignty. Do you think the US will not apply pressure on us to do certain things in certain ways, just like the EU? The difference is the US will be driven predominantly by the plutocrats and the corporates. At least with the EU you do get a greater sense of 'for the benefit of everyone'. Of course that is too 'left' for some. Elected officials elected other officials. That is better than allowing a small percentage of the electorate to vote for PM. One would hope the elected officials do have something about them and have achieved their positions mostly through merit. I know that isn't always the case. However, anyone can be a Tory member - or a Labour member for that matter. I personally believe that if a PM resigns that should automatically force a GE. It isn't right now and it wasn't right when Gordon Brown stepped in. Many people vote on the leader and what they say and perhaps don't even read the manifesto. I am one of the sad few that generally read all three/four.

Minerve, What does anyone ever want out of anything? Answer, benefit for themselves and their own. And we do all understand that this is exactly what is going on, and always has gone on. Brexiteers just want the freedom to do these things across the world rather than in the EU backwater. The PM at least was voted in by 90,000. Nobody knows how the new EU president, Ursula von der Leyen, got in but it wasn't by a democratic vote.

Well said eipgam. What is the point Brexiters fighting for democracy and sovereignty when they are prepared to prorogue parliament, vote a PM in on 90,000 votes from white, wealthy geriatrics, ditch the manifesto, and look towards the US for orders and politic funding? This should, if you have some intelligence, raise eyebrows at the very least. What do the US sponsors want out of this? What does Banks and his sponsors want out of this? If you are half-clued-up on world affairs you would understand what is going on.

If legitimate questioning from Mishal Husain about bare faced lies, opportunistic volte-face manoeuvres, and all sorts of other imbecilic and immoral behaviour can be likened to Lord Haw Haw's broadcasts, then I don't know what planet some other people are on! Politics and the future of our country is not a game that can be treated as if it is a game taking place in quadrangle at Eton, after the senior boys milk race and before evensong. It's serious... and we should not / can not be depending on half witted proven liars such asthe likes of Boris Johnson, who were not elected to their current high office by anyone other than 92,000 conservative party members, to make things better.
