    ‘Diversity’ Cabal Dictates UK Reporting? Expose Them! 

    Skipping one chunk of imbecility does not mean UK Pravda’s on the mend.

    The fact that a complaint about Laura Kuenssberg using the phrase ‘nitty-gritty’ has been rejected by the BBC – after inordinately long-drawn-out brow-furrowing at the highest level – is no indication of a return to honest reporting by the BBC.


    Only complete morons would find ‘nitty-gritty’ objectionable, morons or cultural marxists out to flex their malevolent muscles.

    But it seems, from the Evening Standard report, that an obscure cabal of self-appointed far-left censors have placed ‘nitty-gritty’ out of bounds to hundreds of journalists…

    That diktat was laid down last year, at a ‘diversity briefing’ when sports commentators not just with the BBC but also at Sky, BT Sport and ITV….


    …were TOLD to use alternatives…

    ….such as “the basic facts” on the grounds that nitty-gritty is thought to have referred to the detritus found in the bottom of transatlantic slave ships

    Two questions arise –

    Did not one of those hacks on the receiving end of the leftist diktat have enough self-respect, never mind enough professional pride, to stand up and tell the stinking pinkos to sod off?



    Were they really ALL too spineless to call out the creeps?

    Oh, and the second question?

    Have any of you ever heard such crass idiocy…


    ….as that ‘thought to have referred‘ excuse for censorship?


    It was included on a list of phrases to be avoided by sports commentators at a diversity briefing…


    …last summer.


    But let’s not forget the third question, to which the Evening Standard reporter must have known the answer, yet declined to share it with all us readers?



    WHO ARE THE SWINE, who ran that ‘diversity briefing!’



    Okay, let’s make it four questions!

      Some days you are on better form than others, Ross, but today you excel.
      All good since daybreak, but this is the best yet.
      Or should I say so far.
      Keep at it.

      It ought not to be too difficult to track down these ‘diversity’ bullies. I’ll try to identify them.

    BBC’s Lefty Laura – Nice Accent, Nasty Bias! 

    I wasn’t going to comment on the disgraceful leftist bias shown by the UK publicly-owned broadcaster’s Laura Kuenssberg…

    ….that shamelessly slanted question to Trump, carefully crafted to mislead viewers into thinking British people were in lock-step with the lousy left.

    I quote from Breitbart, whose coverage was as ever to the point.

    “Mr President, you’ve said before that torture works, you’ve praised Russia, you said you want to ban some Muslims from coming to America, you’ve said there should be punishment for abortion. For many people in Britain, those sound like alarming beliefs. What do you say to our viewers at home who are worried about some of your views, and are worried about your becoming leader of the free world.”

    Bolshy BBC Claims To Speak For British Public

    What did this pampered little posh girl learn about impartial journalism when she attended one of the most expensive private schools (Laurel Bank) in Glasgow?




    How dare she frame her question to The Donald in terms that constituted the dismissal of all Brits outside her leftist alternative universe as of no, or at least lesser, consequence than whining pinko creeps.



    I like Laura’s Scots accent – Scottish English – Wikipedia –  especially the way she pronounces ‘food.’

    A lot of emigre Scots adopt the peculiar English Home Counties, so-called ‘Received Pronunciation,’ modulation of vowels, which makes the ‘oo‘ in food into an echo of the German umlaut sound. It is not.

    Scottish food

    Food rhymes with wood, should, good, could, etc., and ought to be pronounced similarly.

    But I detest her bias, which was just heard again, on BBC International, reporting from Turkey, where Theresa May had a nice wee visit with Erdogan The Islamist.

    No time for the guy myself, but I’m a blogger.

    Little Posh Laura is meant to be an objective reporter.

    So how come she ended her report with more snide bias, viz. a warning that political leaders are ‘often judged by the company they keep.’

    • Arguably so, or maybe not.
    • But that’s not for Lefty Laura to lecture us, or our leaders, about.
