Lefties at the BBC

BBC sponsor Labour 650The BBC has immense power, probably more than the government. It has about half of the total UK news reach across all media and it continues this huge reach across documentary and light entertainment (any private company would not be allowed such control over an industry). The philosophical roots of the BBC are grounded in being the social conditioning arm of the post war consensus. So their job is left wing propaganda. Shaping national attitudes to a whole myriad of issues. They can do this using Panorama, using Eastenders, and everything in between. They ran J.K. Rowlings socialist propaganda fiction The Casual Vacancy in the run up to the recent General Election. They really are the enemy of the people of Britain as they prevent the amazing power of capitalism from delivering its bountiful harvest for all.

Here are some of the more prominent lefties at the BBC:

James Mark Dakin Purnell is the Director of Strategy and Digital at the BBC being appointed to the post in February 2013. He was a British Labour Party politician, as the Member of Parliament for Stalybridge and Hyde (MP) from 2001 to 2010 general elections and served as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport from 2007 to 2009.

Danny Cohen is the Director of BBC Television. One of the first things he said when he took charge of BBC1 was that its comedy was too middle class. Recently he banned all-male panels on comedy panel shows. He agrees with “comedian” Lenny Henry that there should be more “diversity” on television. In February 2014 he claimed there were too many white people in the content and its shows would include more blacks and homosexuals “to reflect modern Britain”.

Ian Katz is the editor of the Newsnight current affairs programme on BBC Two. Earlier Katz followed a career in print journalism, and was deputy editor of The Guardian until 2013.

Allegra Stratton is political editor of BBC Two’s Newsnight programme. Previously she was political correspondent at The Guardian, presenting the newspaper’s “Politics Weekly” podcast with Tom Clark.

Kirsty Wark the Newsnight journalist is very close to Labour. Donald Dewar, Scottish Labour politician and former First Minister of Scotland, a personal friend. In January 2005, she invited Labour MSP Jack McConnell, then Scotland’s First Minister, and his family to stay at her Majorcan holiday home over the New Year period.

Sandra Birgitte “Sandi” Toksvig  is a Danish-British writer, presenter and “comedian”. She said on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz that the Conservative Party had “put the ‘N’ into cuts” to child benefit.  In April 2015, Toksvig chaired the first, informal, conference of the new Women’s Equality Party.

Jeremy James Hardy is a “comedian” who the BBC use a lot. Well known left winger who wrote a regular column for The Guardian until 2001. Bashes the bankers (falsely) at every opportunity.

Susan Grace Calman  is a Scottish “comedian” and panellist on BBC Radio 4 topical shows including The News Quiz and I Guess That’s Why They Call It The News. One she tweeted: “Premier travel inn in Birmingham is full of tories. I’m hiding in my room. Feel like Anne Frank.”

Owain Elis James is a Welsh “comedian” who appears in a whole range of BBC output. Tweeted: “We have given that cunt Cameron a mandate to be even more of a psycho , for the next five years. Oh Christ.”

Norman Smith became the Chief Political Correspondent of BBC News in 2011, and its Assistant Political Editor in 2014. Said on air in December: “When you sit down and read the OBR report it reads like a book of doom. It is utterly terrifying.” public spending would “have to be hacked back to the levels of the 1930s in terms of as a proportion of GDP and that is an extraordinary concept” and “You’re back to the land of The Road to Wigan Pier”.

Andrew William Stevenson Marr  Host of The Andrew Marr Show. Was a member of the Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory (an off-shoot of the International-Communist League, now known as the Alliance for Workers’ Liberty). At Cambridge he acquired the nickname ‘Red Andy’.  Writing in The Guardian, he said “It may be my Presbyterian background, but I firmly believe that repression can be a great, civilising instrument for good”.

Mark Steel, socialist columnist, author and “comedian”. Was a long-standing member of the Socialist Workers Party before he resigned in 2007he has made many appearances on BBC radio and television shows . He is perhaps best known for presenting The Mark Steel Lectures, The Mark Steel Revolution, The Mark Steel Solution, and Mark Steel’s in Town. In February 2013, Steel was among those who gave their support to the People’s Assembly in a letter published by The Guardian newspaper.

Russell Brand. Resigned from the BBC in 2008 following prank calls he made to actor Andrew Sachs on The Russell Brand Show. But still appears on the BBC a lot where he is given free reign to voice his extreme left wing views. In the run up to the election he dropped his anti-voting position and “declared the importance of voting”, backing Labour and telling his fans that “You gotta vote Labour”.

Stephen John “Steve” Coogan. “Comedian” who appears on many BBC programmes. Supports the Labour Party and believes that Conservatives think “people are plebs” and that “they like to pat people on the head”. A noted car enthusiast, he has had a succession of Ferraris. Gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry on phone hacking, favouring regulation of the press.

Robert Webb. “Comedian” of Mitchell and Webb fame. Webb has stated that he is a supporter of the Labour Party, and rejoined it in 2013.

Josephine GraceJoBrand. BBC stalwart; “comedian”, writer and actress.  Appeared on The Brain Drain, Getting On and various BBC appearances including as a regular guest on QI and Have I Got News for You. Backed Labour in a party election broadcast.

Obviously this is just a partial list and doesn’t include the thousands of producers, directors, editors and writers who make the BBC a hive of socialism. You don’t have to take my word for this, look at these quotes:

Peter Sissons, former BBC News and Current Affairs presenter: “By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The Guardian and The Independent. ­Producers refer to them routinely for the line to take on ­running stories, and for inspiration on which items to cover. In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told ‘it’s all in there’.”

Mark Thomspon, former BBC Director General: “In the BBC I joined 30 years ago [as a production trainee, in 1979], there was, in much of current affairs, in terms of people’s personal politics, which were quite vocal, a massive bias to the left. The organisation did struggle then with impartiality. And journalistically, staff were quite mystified by the early years of Thatcher. Now it is a completely different generation. There is much less overt tribalism among the young journalists who work for the BBC. It is like the New Statesman, which used to be various shades of soft and hard left and is now more technocratic. We’re like that, too.”

Sir Antony Jay, former BBC producer and creator of Yes, (Prime) Minister: “I absorbed and expressed all the accepted BBC attitudes: hostility to, or at least suspicion of, America, monarchy, government, capitalism, empire, banking and the defence establishment, and in favour of the Health Service, state welfare, the social sciences, the environment and state education. But perhaps our most powerful antagonism was directed at advertising. This is not surprising; commercial television was the biggest threat the BBC had ever had to face.”

So there you have it. The BBC is a huge socialist propaganda outfit that harms Great Britain. It needs breaking up and selling off. And the new Conservative government, at the beginning of a 5 year term and with the BBC Charter up for renewal, would be fools not to.

Finally leftism isn’t the only BBC bias. They are pro Israel and anti Palestine. They are pro MMGW warmists and stifle critical climate debate. They are very pro EU and vehemently against Brexit. They are greatly in favour of Scotland remaining in the Union. All this is wrong. The BBC are not a political party and should not behave like one.

Update 23/6/2015

Roger Mosey, former head of BBC TV news, has written a book giving chapter and verse on the Corporation’s bias.
Here it is reported by The Daily Mail.
