ONCE again I have to ask why the BBC seems so hell bent on virtually devouring the hand that brings financial succor to its ever clutching coffers.
In my view its unashamed biased news editing propaganda continues unabated and, it is alleged you can still get sacked for bringing the Daily Mail into its publicly funded portals.
Nothing new there then. All that withstanding, this week, to my mind, they hit an all-time low. Being a Dad of two youngsters, I occasional find myself somewhat unwillingly subjected to kids’ TV.
The other day I was drawn to the unusual sound of a rap song on the CBBC channel. To say I could hardly believe my ears was pure understatement.
The song was being performed by a squad of young men with broad Scottish accents.
All were costumed out a la Mel Gibson’s Braveheart and the vitriolic lyrics that poured out of them were nothing short of disgraceful.
The whole song was an attack on the British and the treatment meted out to the Scots in days of yore.
Full of pure hatred it ranted on about killings, battles and a general all-round bitterness felt for everyone and everything British.
On prime time adult TV it would have been bad enough, but aimed at children it was totally unforgivable.
In fact they wouldn’t have risked it on an adult channel; the backlash would have been horrendous. As it was, in a move of sheer deviousness, they slipped it into a kiddie’s programme.
To my mind someone should be brought to book for this disgusting brain washing propaganda exercise, if only to let these arrogant subversives know that someone, somewhere, is checking up on them and they simply cannot be allowed to get away with it.
Seen any flying pigs lately? I’m not one who is fooled by appearances. In my experience the most innocent looking and likeable people can be capable of horrendous acts of cruelty and crime.
Therefore I was not moved by the sight of silver haired Christopher Tappin, who limped into Heathrow was last week prior to being deported to America where he was wanted on a charge of alleged arms dealing.
What I did find unreasonably hard on this undoubtedly petrified pensioner, was the American judge’s decision to not grant him bail. Surely if a high profile elderly man travels all the way to America to deliver himself to the authorities, the last thing he would be is a flight risk?
I’m afraid this smells of the usual American juvenile and indecisive paranoia which still permeates that country.
It’s also another reason to rethink the whole American/ British deportation agreement, which remains far too heavily biased in America’s favour.
Keep the faith.
