The BBC is changing their name to the TBC! Some Pertinent points, asides, serious issues and amusing analogies.

The Tory Broadcasting Company has really stepped into the mire on this one. Freedom of speech?? Gary Lineker is a lightnin’ rod!!

If Liberty Means Anything At All It Means The Right To Tell People What They Do Not Want To Hear.- Behind the statue of George Orwell in the BBC. Why put it there if you do the opposite of what it says?

Impartiality?? Hypocrisy?? Bias?? These words are meaningless when freedom of speech is denied!

The TBC don’t seem to want to know or understand their own policy. Freelancers are free to express their views. It says so.

The hypocrisy is that they pick and choose – Karen Brady, Lord Sugar, Jeremy Clarkson, Fiona Bruce, Chris Packham, Gary Lineker – which is the odd one out?

Perhaps they should read their own policies??

Impartiality!

    1. Thank you Vinny. I think they have loaded the place with so many right-wing Tories that they have no clue as to what they should be doing, or should be doing. The irony is that they talk about bias and partiality. They are either blind to their own actions or else extremely hypocritical.

I'd like to hear from you...
