BBC Re-Heats Biased Old Bakewell Tart!


Spiked.com can be annoying at times, but, like RT, at other times quite admirable.

On occasion, it simply gives us useful information, as this past week was the case with an interview, an old bat who sits on the Labour benches in the House of Lords, whom younger readers won’t likely have heard of.

ooooooooooo

Her name’s Joan Bakewell and as a young guy in the Sixties, I remember her as a typical smug BBC leftist.

She was a bit prettier than the run-of-the-mill red slags who trudged about on CND marches…

…but in that halcyon era, when micro-mini-skirts were still an entrancing new development in female fashions…

…we none of us normal ( i.e. non-BBC!) young gentlemen would ever have given Bolshie Bakewell a second – or even a third – glance.

Then some comedian  – I believe it was Frank Muir – rather famously described her as ‘’the thinking man’s crumpet.”

In other words, unlike the intellectual in-crowd Muir hung out with, those of us, indubitably the majority of men, who thought Marianne Faithfull was a MUCH tastier confectionary, were unthinking?

What do you think?

We discussed that insult and were even more strongly confirmed in our adamant indifference to Joanie’s superficial charms.

However, the sad thing is that despite the passage of half a century, she seems not to have matured.Inevitably, the BBC is bringing back her bias, via a brand-new show to be called “Vive La Revolution.”

Watch it if you like  – pinko pap, I’ll predict..

Thing is, she was caught out fifty years ago, when the Broadcasting House bosses had some slight acquaintance with their charter’s duty to be an impartial outfit.

Bakewell: What had been happening for some 13 years by 1968 was the Vietnam War, which we covered on Line-Up.
Because of our sympathies, we interviewed a lot of draft dodgers.
We got into trouble with the BBC establishment who noticed we weren’t interviewing the people fighting the war.
And they felt that was to the discredit of the BBC.

Heavens above!

Somebody at the BBC had a grasp of the concept of fairness? Somebody thought that honourable young Americans fighting for their country might merit a hearing?

Changed days. Now bias at the BBC is a way of life.

No wonder they want the old bat back. They’ll have made sure, no doubt, that she even now is completely unabashed about her “sympathies” with the cowards and traitors of the Bill Clinton breed.

So expect little in the way of fairness in whatever the Old Bakewell Tart cooks up on her programme.
