    Tags: 'high culture', BBC, Tax-Payers' Alliance   

    Even A Minimised UK Pravda’s Unacceptable 


    From what I know of the Tax-Payers’ Alliance, it’s a sensible group…

    .

    .

    …and its support for an end to the coerced tv licence fee confirms that view.

    However, I can see no sense at all in their suggestion that ‘a smaller version of the BBC should exist to fulfill the unique roles needed of a public broadcasting service.’

    .

    .

    A mouse that spreads disease is no more welcome in one”s home than a rat.

    Their statement –

    A smaller state-funded BBC – producing output focused on high culture and serious news – appeals to many. Yet this is not what the BBC has been for some time.

    https://www.express.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/1511723/tv-licence-fee-bbc-scrap-rishi-sunak-budget-UK-2021

    – might have been acceptable decades ago, before the state broadcaster became infested by leftist and/or degenerate subversives.

    But what kind of high culture exists in the UK today, with squalid junk….

    shortlisted for the Turner Prize…it consisted of her bed with bedroom objects in a dishevelled state…sold at auction.. £2,546,500.

    My Bed

    ….like Tracey Emmons’ unmade bed!

    Oh and let’s not forget about all the Booker Prize nonsense….

    Born Disloyal, Booker Bat Puts The Boot In! 

    How The Hell Did Evaristo Ever Get A Writing Prize? 

    ‘…he would often find with the novels that win the annual literary prize that he did not know “what the hell I am reading… Well Said Freddy! Forsyth V ‘Intellectual’ Jackals 

    …and public money subsidising displays of laughable trash..

    Related image

     

    …like that infamous pickled animal cadaver.

    Cultural distinctions in the UK are few and far between, and often a mockery of real culture.

    Moreover….

    If we had a mini-BBC for ”high culture,” it would likely be run…

    .

    Professor Mary Beard described the toppling of statues as “a noble tradition” and voiced her support for the protesters who tore down the sculpture of Colston in Bristol.. 

    …by the the likes of the abominable Mary Beard, whose scraggly head is forever on UK Pravda.

    Or worse…

    Good Job, Guardian! NOW For Yentob? 

    …that repulsive character Yentob.

    Oh, and leaving the BBC with any responsibility for ‘serious news?’

    .

      I also despair of what passes for culture in Britain.
      It would be easy to blame American influence but that is taking the easy way out.
      Unmade beds and that carcass are nothing to do with culture and those responsible for making such rubbish and those who display and subsidise them deserve no public funding whatsoever.

      I never heard of that Tracy Emmins until you showed us a picture of her art, but now have found this in the Skynews and her ‘art’ is even worse than you showed us.
      ‘She is famous for her autobiographical and confessional work, including My Bed – a notorious installation including empty vodka bottles, cigarette butts, stained sheets and used underwear – that was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 1999.’

      Good luck to her that she can pick up glory for her rubbish.

      The real trash are the Turner morons who pur her on that short list.

      Usually, the BBC promotes whatever they think will attract bigger audiences but as you say, they have kept very quiet on this.

      I too had heard nothing of this, but after reading what you had written I felt you were not crying wolf.
      Perverts are known to be spiteful and since the BBC harbours more of them than most institutions, exposing Stonewall might not be a wise ‘career development’ move for the journalists.
      Now it seems your concerns are confirmed, if the report in The Times is to be believed.
      If you haven’t aleady seen this, I’m sending you the link.
      What is truly alarming is that it’s NOT just Mr. Nolan’s working life that may be in jeopardy.

      A BBC presenter has revealed that his colleagues warned him against reporting on transgender topics, saying it could hurt his career and threaten his safety.

      I have agreed with all you say about “charities’ that should be investigated by the Charity Commissioner, but in view of what is in The Times, should somebody not be asking for a police investigation?
      Or are the police now so coopted to gaystapo enforcement that help from that quarter might be slow in coming.?
      .
      It is distressing that so many police forces have openly allied themselves with deviants and been busy intimidating people with traditional values.

    My Kittens Matter More Than Trivia-Obsessed BBC! 


    I am currently distracted by the joy of having those five kittens in my yard….

    …where Mama Tini is looking after them very well, my only duty being to buy fish from the local tukang sayur – which means veggie vendor but there are fish, eggs and other non-veg items available!

    =

    …which is probably no bad thing for my emotional equilibrium!

    However, I couldn’t help but note perhaps the most idiotic headline yet seen on their website earlier, viz.

    Emily In Paris writer ‘rages’ at I May Destroy You’s Golden Globes snub

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/entertainment-arts-55934634

    What does that garbage mean?

    …or more of a typical BBC newscaster? 

    Is ‘I May Destroy You’ a threat to non-marxist viewers?

    Investigation reveals they are TV dramas, or is it TV movies?

    We need to remember that in La-La Land, box office receipts are not that big a deal. Films, surely ought to get prizes based on how many people buy cinema tickets, but not in Hollywood these days, where democracy doesn’t count…

    Apparently the bizarre headline refers to some uptight chick incredibly vexed about how some production fared at the hands of the celeb-exalters, although…

    Movies about women did well in 2021 Golden Globe nominations, but BIPOC mostly absent from Best Picture races https://www.goldderby.com/article/2021/golden-globes-diversity-women/

    …their ‘diversity’ stuff I think we have not so far deigned to notice, though maybe we should!

    At least today I learned of a new word from the woke-weasel vocabulary!

    BIPOC!

    It apparently refers to black, Indigenous and people of color

    I have always liked films about women, back in The Old Country and here in Indonesia, where I suppose my fave stars are ‘people of colour’ though I never even think about colour when I admire actresses like Depe…

    /

    …and Syarini…

    THAT kind of diversity I can cope with!

    Anyway, I glanced quickly through the Beeb-Burbling, and it turns out the sad bint’s rejection-sensitivities have been assuaged by a gesture of approval on the part of a once-respected, but now deplorable body, namely the Screen Actors’ Guild…

    Screen Actors Guild – The Talking Brain-Dead?

      I like movies about women too, and here in Indonesia we are blessed with beautiful stars. When they do get involved in 'politics' they are not all as courageous as Nikita but few if any are as bad as The American embarassments we read about, like Fonda for instance.
      That Screen Actors Guild has become a leftwing pressure group.

    Putting The Boot Into Red Rapinoe? VOTE! Open Till 2nd March! 


    Currently the BBC has a sort of perpetual ad going on, about interviews they’ve had with various ‘personalities’ – just a talking head, one or two sentences spoken, then someone else’s talking head doing the same.

    One of the most obnoxious persons included is the unappealing far-left lesbian, M. Rapinoe, who gibbers that ‘anyone racist needs to get banned for life...’

    Nothing about banning marxists, or sectarian jihadists, though, and I doubt that’s because she went on to such potential bans later in the interview.

    Her diversity-fixation is notoriously selective!

    Rapinoe is repulsive, not because she likes to have sex with other women ( she’d be unlikely to attract many men!) but because she is an intolerant, foul-mouthed, loud-mouthed extremist.

    And that brings me to an opportunity for ALL of you to decide if she deserves to be honoured, as below.

    I have no info on the levels of bigotry, left or right, among the other candidates, and frankly I don’t much care what their views are.

    At least they have the grace not to make themselves continually offensive by spouting their prejudices, as Rapinoe does.

    BBC Still Signalling Support For Illegality! 


    I just got home at 10.30pm last Thursday, in time to watch that pinko BBC creep Matthew Amroliwolo, nattering with some woman about the hordes of AFRICAN illegals pouring across the Darien Gap in Central America.

    ==

    Bad enough the onslaught from the rabble we’ve seen stomping their way through Central American frontiers…

    .

    .

    …but now there are additional thousands, from across the vast South Atlantic Ocean, utterly arrogant in their determination to gate-crash the USA.

    We have looked at this assault on North America previously.

    when the French state media was our target, but this time it was the UK state broadcaster at fault.

    Neither the Beeb popinjay who dishonestly omitted the key word ‘illegal’ when he squealed about ‘the perils faced by migrants…’

    =

    Image result for matthew amroliwala bbc

    …nor his pro-crimmigrant interlocutor, some wench (apparently their local reporter) who allowed the crimmigrants to use false names, showed even remote interest in getting border laws enforced.

    Shame on Amroliwolo and Catherine Spirahanga for helping these gate-crashers.

    Would they be equally indifferent to criminality if they witnessed a mugging or a sexual assault through the windows of their BBC studios? 

    They should have shared all the info they could get, along with clear photographs, to help our American allies, who will have to handle the horde, if and when the wannabe gate-crashers reach the US border. 

    Instead, it was just another example of the BBC’s readiness to act as cheer-leaders for law-breakers. 

    Again, BBC Fails To Warn Police of Criminality On Turkish Shore! 

       

    BBC Now BOASTs of Aiding and Abetting Illegals! 

    Alas, we’ve seen it before. 

    Neither Brown-Shoes nor Catherine S showed the slightest disapproval of these lawless aliens, from Cameroun, Congo, India and Pakistan.

    Instead they fretted about how tough it was to be an illegal.

    Why all the lamentation over self-inflicted woes?

    This long-range attempt at invasion of other people’s countries was their choice.

    Just as the parasitic cargos disgorged by the ‘NGO’ bludger boats deliberately chose to launch illegal incursions into Europe from North Africa.

    Feel sorry for their tiny tots if you will – feel sorry for their plight in having parents who put them at mortal risk by undertaking criminal activity…

    ….and consider removing those kiddies from the care and control of such wickedly irresponsible parents.

    BBC World News hit a new low on Sunday night, with one of their raddled blonde presenters getting on first-name terms with that revolting brute Begum.

    Yes, when referring to that creature in the picture above, it’s ‘Shamima,’ not Begum the Bestial Bitch, not even just Begum, not even a formal Ms. Begum, but instead, ‘SHAMIMA,’ according to the creature in the picture below…

    ..

    oooooo

    ….whose name I didn’t catch, but whose readiness to behave in such a way so shocked me that I grabbed my Ipad to let readers see for themselves.

    Although I’m pretty sure I have identified her, I am reluctant to do so here, as the BBC has an adequate sufficiency of raddled blonde jackesses and I don’t wish to be unfair, even to them.

    However…

    When they next do a programme on serial killers, will she talk about ‘Charles’ rather than Manson, or ‘Myra’ rather than Hindley?

    When they discuss tyrants like Hitler or Stalin, will Blondie talk about ‘Adolf’ and ‘Joe?’

    How dare that Beeb-Bint be thus offensive?

    Various people appeared on our screen discussing what to do with such vermin.

    What’s to talk about?

    Execution for the adults – no sexism please, ISIS male or ISIS female – up against the wall…

    . …and if jihadist offspring are young enough, they should be removed from any contact with the scum who bred them and poisoned their souls…

    .

    …and put in the custody and control of people who might be able to turn them back into human beings.

    For no good reason at all, she began quoting people she didn’t name who lived through WW2 and who, she yammered, were anxious about ‘what’s happening in Europe today.’

    This source of anxiety, she quickly hammered home her partisan point, was ‘nationalism.’

    You stupid, biased bitch.

    The reason war-time Brits ( just ask yer grandparents) put up a fight was nothing to do with any hostility to ‘nationalism,’ but on the contrary, ’twas a fierce pride in their national identity…

    …the evil aims of which are precisely what today’s patriots, the nationalists, like Salvini, and Le Pen and indeed the Brexit resistance movement, are battling to defeat.

      She certainly knows no bounds of decency, or respect for the fallen, who were overwhelmingly what she derides as nationalists, proud to be fighting for their country.

      I hate paying that compulsory licence and pray for a government that gives viewers free choice.
