Its good to see the left in disarray and various left wing propaganda merchants at each others throats.
For the second time this month (and it’s only the 8th today) The Guardian is attacking those cover up kings at the BBC.
from The Guardian:
Nobody from John Humphrys in the morning to Evan Davis at night dares mention the tide of scandal that is swamping the BBC. It undermines their reporting of every abuse whistleblowers reveal. It reinforces the dirty common sense of British life that you must keep your head down and not tell the truth if you want to keep your job.
The scandal is simply this: the BBC is forcing out or demoting the journalists who exposed Jimmy Savile as a voracious abuser of girls. As Meirion Jones put it to me: “There is a small group of powerful people at the BBC who think it would have been better if the truth about Savile had never come out. And they aim to punish the reporters who revealed it.
Jones was one of the BBC’s best investigative producers. He had suspected that Savile was not the “national treasure the BBC, NHS, monarchy and public adored, ever since he had seen Savile take girls away in his car from an approved school his aunt ran in the 1970s. He broke the story which showed that Savile was one of the most prolific sex abusers in British history, and handed the BBC what would have been one of its biggest scoops. If it had run it. Which, of course, it did not. The editor of Newsnight banned the report. Thus began a cover-up which tore the BBC apart.
While it is satisfying to see the walls of fortress Establishment crumbling, what is really irritarting at the moment in the number of libertarian bloggers (people who really should know better) clinging to the “move along now, nothing to see here, it all happened a long time ago so there’s no evidence.”
Well yes, right, let’s be a nation of smug, prissy, bourgeois twats like the 1950s and early 60s Britain I grew up in. Never talk about anything embarrassing, just pretend it didn’t happen.
Well no thanks because right up to recently the rich and famous were literally getting away with murder, their peers would close ranks and protect them. Look at the case of Lord Lucan, murdered their working class nanny having mistaken her for his wife, but his friends (as they admitted a few years ago) obstructed the murder investigation and helped him get away. We can only hope he lived out his years in abject misery.
Much the same happened with Savile, the paedophile, necrophile, crippleophile, retardophile, everyfuckingthingelseophile, glorified DJ and professional weirdo. The BBC covered for him for years. When I was doing bits of broadcasting for BBC local radio in the 1980s it was well know you didn’t leave the kids who volunteered as runners etc. alone with Savile. His proclivities were a running joke, sick I know but as he was so well protected by senior management it was impossible to do anything other than mock him.
Everyone knew. And as for the smug twats who now say, “There’s no evidence,” there is actually plenty of evidence that complaints about the pervy old bastard (and good old Uncle ‘two little boys’ Rolf, and Sturart Hall were simply ignored by those creepy, self righteous, self satisfied Marxist shits at the BBC, you know the ones, they want to import more foreign paedophiles to ‘culturally enrich’ young girls who are living in council care homes and who want to tell us all what we can and cannot think.
It’s time we rebelled. A vote for Lab, Con or LD is a vote for paedophiles, for cover ups, for accepting the fact that the government does not give a shit about the masses, so long as enough votes can be bought with state benefit payments to preserve the status quo.
Free Speech: Reporters Without Borders unblocks access to censored websites
It is surprising in view of what we now know about the collaboration between internet technology corporations and government security agencies that many people still think og the internet as a bastion of freedom. This page shows how easy it is for governments and corporations to censor web content.
