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.

Opinion: Top doctors warn of ‘worst winter’ in hospitals as A&E crisis grows | Society | The Observer – John Gelmini

The Guardian, the Trades Unions in the NHS and the BBC collectively, are always calling for more money for the NHS because that is their solution to everything.

First mislead and frighten the people, with tales of gloom and doom, then frighten them some more, with tales of soiled and malodorous pensioners being left to die on hospital trolleys, bed blocking and long waiting lists and then put it all down to lack of money and Government callousness.

Dr Alf has lost none of the forensic ability to drill down to the facts that stood him in good stead in a successful commercial life as a Financial Director for substantial organisations and in his second incarnation as an interim executive, specializing in radical transformation, prior to becoming a professional blogger and commentator on the state of political life, global trends and the country he once proudly lived and worked in.

Dr Alf has correctly identified the NHS as being beyond repair and the UK in need of replacement by something better.

I know this from my insurance background, from having compared the NHS with better foreign healthcare systems in France, Germany and Italy and from intimate personal knowledge of the NHS involving tracking former tenants through the system from treatment right through to arranging their funerals, following the NHS complaints system through from beginning to end.

This was, with MP involvement in the case of my own parents’ treatment over cataracts, heart conditions, the fitting of my late father’s pacemaker, my late mother’s knee replacements and cataract operations, all which were initially refused on cost grounds by an NHS Trust which through gross mismanagement was discovered to be losing £50 million gbp a year and supposedly without the knowledge of the Chief Executive.

That Chief Executive is still there, even after bringing in PwC, at a cost of £1 million gbp, to tell him and his board that he was really losing £50 million gbp a year at a time when like 12 wise monkeys not one of them actually knew the extent of the loss or even if they were making one at all.

After that, the board was “strengthened” by adding more directors on salaries of over £100,000 gbp a year and all the other directors and the CEO gave themselves a pay rise.

We know from the Staffordshire debacle, and scandal after scandal, that it is not just a few bad apples but the rot continues.

The revolving door of multi-million pound payoffs to NHS executives, who leave on Monday and come back on Friday, at higher pay, continues and we have the lowest longevity out of all countries in Western Europe outside of Greece, and the worst cancer treatment outcomes in the whole of Western Europe.

Combine that with the fattest woman in Western Europe, a diabetes epidemic and a dementia epidemic, plus the running sore of Adult Social Care, we can safely conclude that the NHS needs to be replaced with something much better.

Can it be done?

The present Government has 19 months to run, and is in many respects a lame-duck on borrowed time.
It is facing the official Opposition which is packing the BBC and other organisations with Labour placemen, like James Purnell and his henchmen, ready to slow down reform, whilst the real roadblocks to meaningful change sit in the Civil Service and outside in the form of Druids and their fellow travelers, who if they could, would bring the UK back into the Middle Ages, Paganism and serfdom within a feudal society, in my view.

That is to say, a Britain without computers, industry, infrastructure, mobile phones, high tech medicine and the exports, productivity and inward investment needed to remain a first world country with a fit for purpose healthcare system and a healthy and mentally sharp population guided by Judeo-Christian philosophy and the “Golden Rule”.
