Opinion – Why left-wing bias at the BBC is a myth – John Gelmini

Dr Alf is right to be skeptical, particularly about Robert Peston, who has to look to his laurels now that a licensing review is due and even Ed Miliband has said that “there is no new money”.

The BBC wants an attractive settlement and its reporters parrot Labour party policy vis-a-vis local authority spending, central government spending, policies on Gay marriage and the NHS.

The BBC is very hard on landlords, as evidenced by an interview of Britain’s biggest buy to let landlord, versus Labour Party policy which is to regulate landlords, bring in more local authority control, cap rents and favor tenants who as a breed tend to vote for socialist policies at the expense of everyone else.

Look at the BBC’s strategic management and Programming Directorate and you will find it packed with former Labour Cabinet Ministers, like James Purnell. on salaries well north of £200,000 gbp a year.

Similar bias towards politicians outside of the Labour Party can be observed in the interviewing styles used, the use of NLP style hand gestures, facial expressions and body language, which are all designed to rubbish those persons being interviewed, whilst pretending to the viewing public that all is well and that the process is fair.

Watch Question Time and you can see these techniques being employed by Dimbleby, who 20 years later, still cannot persuade anyone to give him a knighthood.

Watch Panorama and you see a pattern whereby people like Donald Trump are rubbished while full platform is given to Alex Salmond a former Labour Party member under the late John Smith MP.

Similar vilification is applied to the reclusive Barclay Brothers, who own the Daily Telegraph which exposed the MPs’ expenses scandal and exposed a political elite as largely a bunch of crooks, house flippers and con men and woman.
Of those exposed, the biggest proportion came from the ranks of the party most favorable to the idea of a bigger licence fee settlement for the BBC and by a large margin.

BBC reporting of Leveson clearly favours Ed Miliband’s policies, which are to toughen Leveson and muzzle the Press even more than David Cameron seems to want to.

Robert Peston is trying to protect his position, as are the assembled Guardianistas, gnostics, atheists, Common Purpose trained apparatchiks, agnostics, etc. and left-wing reporters, who pretend that they are speaking for all of us, and think they are so clever that no-one outside of their Oxbridge universe can work out where they are coming from and the extent of their misreporting.

I can see “where they live” and recognise them for the people that they are.
So can others, so for them the writing is on the wall and not before time.

Personally, I am pro-Europe for open and free trade but not for excessive bureaucracy. In my judgement, the European Commission should be facilitating effective strategy not defending their focus on Smartphone apps. for road traffic updates.

Any thoughts?
