    Biased BBC’s Undue Attention To Shrilly Inaccurate Celebs 


    Who the Hell cares what Margaret Atwood and James Norton think about Poland’s defence of decent values?

    I’ve heard of Attwood, yes, but mostly thanks to those idiot women who flounce about in silly red costumes…

    .

    items.[0].image.alt

    …bonkers bints who march around American streets dressed like some peculiar sort of Santa’s degendered helpers…

    ========

    ……and if I wanted advice on how to construct a paragraph, I might well consult her.

    That’s the extent of her expertise.

    Attwood Sisters’ Masque Of The Red Death…And.. 

     She is NOT qualified to prattle about Poland.

    .

    .

    Even less Norton!

    A posh ‘public school’ sort who apparently got his start with a part in Dr. Who?

    .

    .

    Or any of these other pompous ‘celebrities’ ( in whose opinion?) in the BBC report?

    Ed Harris, Pedro Almodóvar, Deborah Levi, Isabelle Huppert, Anne Enright, Stellan Skarsgaard, Mike Leigh?

    Again, a couple of names are familiar, but not as authorities on the politics of Eastern Europe!

    Whatever their show-biz etc. skills, their prejudices are of no more importance…

    .

    .

    …than those of the ladies beside whom I’ll be shopping at the fruit and veg stall in my Jakarta komplek tomorrow morning, who know as much, and whose views are at least as significant, as the rich sticky-beaks provided with undue publicity by UK Pravda…

    ..

    …..

    ….and no doubt by other tax-funded propaganda channels on the Continent.

    Bad enough that the BBC…

    – notorious for its own  misuse of public money to promote deviant life-styles – many of their staff are not quite sure how to use their own body parts! –

    …gives their vapourings such prominence, but it fails to fact-check their inaccurate claims, such as the glaring untruth that the trouble-maker on whose behalf they’re shrilling is female….

    .

    “…an LGBT+ activist named Margot, who had been arrested for damaging a homophobic campaigner’s van. Her group had also placed rainbow flags over statues, including a statue of Christ.” https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-53818948

    In fact, the freako detained for its offensive antics and its vandalism is not a ‘her’ at all, as has been made clear by the Polish authorities.

    Poland’s Opposition Freaks Out – In Their True Colours! 

    .

    It’s a man!

    But facts don’t matter much when the BBC is in hate-mode, and those pinko creeps in Broadcasting House do hate Poland.

    Why?

    Poland does not currently recognise same-sex unions – whether those are marriages or civil unions. Same-sex couples are also legally banned from adopting children.’

    No doubt the shrills who signed the rant are as enthused for so-called ‘gay’ so-called ‘marriage’ and handing over defenceless kids to the custody and control of co-habiting homos…

    .

    .

    …as they are on succouring the ‘shemale’ behind bars in Warsaw.

    Attwood Sisters’ Masque Of The Red Death…And.. 


    BBC World had Margaret Attwood and her sister on today, with their contemporarily relevant (?) version of The Masque of the Red Death, Edgar Allan Poe’s horror tale…

    .

    Margaret Atwood's Masque of the Red Death involved household objects repurposed

    ….and I must admit, though I am not well-disposed towards the Canadian authoress, because it’s her fault all those bonkers bints march around American streets dressed like some peculiar sort of Santa’s degendered helpers…

    …MA’s voice was perfect as narrator.

    Watching it made me think of another piece of old literature, lines from Robert Browning, which make me long for the days of just two months ago…

    .

    .

    As for Venice and her people, merely born to bloom and drop,
    “Here on earth they bore their fruitage, mirth and folly were the crop:
    “What of soul was left, I wonder, when the kissing had to stop? 

    https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/43777/a-toccata-of-galuppis

    …when I could go out on the town, Jakarta by night, having beers with buddies and chatting to pretty local ladies.

    How can you kiss some gal’s cheek, if you’re a ‘social distance’ apart?

    I shudder at all those TV talking heads, gabbling about how we need to come to terms with the ‘New Normal!’

    .

    Or, as it seems to me, their Brave New World!
