Stories about the story tellers … once upon a time the media told us what had happened and we chose what to think. Today the media tells us what to think and we have to decide if it happened.

Quislings …

For folks who are unaware the UK’s National Broadcaster, the envy of the world, the non plus ultra of world broadcasting, the #BBC, is considered the least impartial of any UK public service broadcaster.

If you’re not British you might find that hard to believe. If you are then this is old news and you’ll be well aware of the campaign to #Defund the BBC by cancelling licence fees. The issue is not simply the daily broadcast of hard left propaganda, their fawning obeisance to the EU and their denigration of the UK, their adherence of all things #woke and the hatred and bigotry they allow and even promote via their broadcast media; a large part of the issue simply boils down to the people they employ.

As an example this is what folks who have grown rich at taxpayers expense think of those who who have no choice but to pay their inflated wages.

One wonders if she is aware of how grossly offensive her terms are, to describe those who demand democratic accountability in a free and independent nation of being “quislings”. The real #Quisling was a Norwegian politician who betrayed his own country to join the EUs predecessor, Hitler’s Third Reich. An awful, awful thing to say.

Mike Yeadon speaks

So who’s Mike #Yeadon and why should you care? He’s a top rank #virologist, he’s also a previous vice-president of #Pfizer, holds a first class honours degree and relevant doctorate. Pfizer is one of the companies producing a #Covd19 vaccine. What he’s not is some lone wolf, conspiracy theory fruitloop living in his parent’s attic.

Dr Yeadon like a great many scientists is critical of the SAGE advice to the UK government and also believes that the the UK government is significantly mishandling its response to the Covid19 virus

There’s nothing unusual about this. For instance we can turn to the #Great_Barrington_Declaration signed by thousands of real scientists, many of whom are world leaders in their fields and who have been saying fundamentally the same thing from the international perspective for some time now. Many of you dear readers though won’t have heard of these people, this is because there is a process by which some social media companies are actively removing content.

Here’s what a rather alarmed but well known journalist had to say on #Twitter.

We say that it’s not the role of Social Media companies to edit what we as adults (and rather good looking rodents) can and cannot read. It’s bad enough when the subject of the censorship is the aforementioned roof dwelling conspiracy fruitloop but when social media companies decide what is and what is not good science the outcome for us all takes a turn for the worse.

Dr Yeadon spouting wrongthink … you decide, it’s OK, unlike YouTube and HMG we trust you.

Today in the UK we are living under unprecedented restrictions. As a society we’re currently accepting these restrictions because we’re told by our government that the restrictions will prevent more deaths than they will cause. They base this advice on the advice of SAGE and SAGE alone. A group of advisors that we now know went to #wikipedia for information – yes, really! We know that the current government imposed restrictions on the people of the UK are causing deaths, causing poverty and are causing long term social and economic harm. Some political groups and organisations such as the UK #Labour Party and the #SNP are calling for even tighter restrictions despite the harm these will cause.

If these restrictions are genuinely saving more lives than they’re costing then so be it. The UK’s survived much worse. But what if these restrictions are doing the opposite and killing more than they’re saving? This is the question we and government need to answer and before doing so we need the very best advice, from the very best people whether than advice plays to our preconceptions or challenges them.

This means that we have to listen to real scientists on both sides of the debate, if we don’t then it’s axiomatic any policy decisions made are going to be flawed. For this reason we have to say no to #YouTube and the other Social Media companies censoring what we say and read and view. Social media companies are our clients, that make money out of their users and as such they they are our servants, not our masters.

BBC propagandising for the civil service

Today the #BBC went into overdrive in an attempt to smear the UK Home Secretary Priti Patel. For those who don’t know she’s Indian and thus the wrong sort of Black for the BLM movement, BBC and other loonies who hate her for being successful and being reasonably good at her job. Worse than that she’s successful by dint of her own hard work and not because she’s received any special favours.

This of course also undermines a key claim by the modern hard left that non-white folks can only succeed if given special treatment. As an aside how’s that for patronising racism?

Again for folks who don’t know, when Mrs #Patel was appointed to government she committed that most unforgivable of crimes. She asked senior civil servants to work! When they baulked at this most unreasonable demand apparently she shouted at them and even went so far as to suggest that they either do the jobs they’re paid for of bugger off. The complains from the civil servants concerned have have swollen into a full scale enquiry. It boils down to an allegation that this tiny little Indian lady has allegedly bullied whole swathes of publicly schooled rugby playing civil servants. Even more humorously is that while Mrs Patel was already a target for a hate campaign orchestrated by the left for being successful she is now in the position of being attacked again by the same left wing of British politics for trying to get value for money out of the public school boys who run the British establishment.

So we have the hard left attacking a hard working Indian lady on behalf of public school toffs. If that isn’t ironic what is But then again, as #Labour is full of the rich and privileged perhaps it’s not so ironic after all.

And the BBC? Well, here’s the thing here they are commenting on the report before it’s actually been published. By doing so they’re betraying their own political leanings by being caught salting the earth before the truth is known.
