    Race-Obsessed UK Media Play BAME Game! 


    Wow!

    Did you know – indeed, would you have given a tinker’s cuss had you known – that ‘last year, the British music industry was urged to stop using the “outdated and offensive” term, ‘ BAME?

    Well, now Brits are learning that their TV output is also to be subjected to an identical diktat, emanating from an august body calling itself –

    the Sir Lenny Henry Centre for Media Diversity.’

    Sir Lenny Henry signed the letter to the chairman of the BBC, Richard Sharp

    Lenny Henry

    Hmmm.. I thought Lenny Henry was a comedian!

    Oh, I forgot!

    Black Power’ Play At BBC? 

    No longer!

    For evidently BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, taking this guff seriously, have ‘welcomed the findings!’

    The report concluded there “was a lack of trust” around the term BAME.

    Yeah, because most normal people, if they even feel a need to talk about others in terms of race, simply use plain English, white and coloured!

    NB  – Normal folk see no need for that PC gibberish ‘people of colour!

    So there was fair representation of boring old whiteys on the ‘focus groups?’

    I suspect not, but would be happy if corrected.

    The main media whine seems to be that ‘BAME’ concealed the wide variety of non-whites, e.g. negroes, Arabs, orientals, South Asians ( eg Indians and Pakistanis and Bengalis, etc.)

    News bulletins may take longer than before!

    But how about the many types of whites?

    .

    Red-headed Celts, blonde Norse sorts, olive-skinned Meds and those with distinctive Slav features.

    Aaah, but who gives that tinker’s cuss about them?

      Why can’t they ever be content, always finding something to whinge about?
      Nobody outside the media and civil servants ever used that stupid BAME word anyway.

    BAFTA TV Awards…If Viewers Had Votes, The Maitlis Would Lose! 


    I was horrified to see this ‘headline’ in The Times at the weekend.

    Emily Maitlis, Romesh, Succession’s Brian Cox… Meet TV’s BAFTA Nominees

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/emily-maitlis-romesh-successions-brian-cox-meet-tvs-bafta-nominees-klh5kvk69

    I recoiled, unwilling to read more about The Maitlis…
    .

    Sneer-Minx Maitlis – No Charm School Grad, She!

    See the resemblance?

    …of whom we’ve surely heard and seen enough in this summer of far-left BBC propaganda!

    .
    .

    It’s proper to remind readers that we noticed the leftist vixen some three years ago, when Andrea Leadsom made a pertinent observation, viz.

    “Of course it is very early days but it would help if broadcasters were willing to be a bit patriotic.”

         http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/820745/BBC-Newsnight-Andrea-Leadsom-host-Brexit-Theresa-May-EU-Jeremy-Corbyn

    Emily Maitlis responded with a display of instantly manufactured indignation…

    https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2017/06/24/good-on-ya-andrea-being-unpatriotic-is-a-bbc-prerequisite/

    …though of course she doesn’t have a clue what patriotism is.

    You have to feel it before you can know what it means!

    But that headline aroused my curiosity, as to who gets to decide these ‘honours!’

    And rest assured, it ain’t you!

    If you live in the UK, you get to have the BBC license fee extorted from your hard-earned cash, but the media in-crowd keep you out of any say in who gets the gongs, or the silly little statues that BAFTA hands out.

    With one exception!

    The Must See Moment gong goes to an iconic snapshot of TV from the last year that got everyone talking.

    And, last I heard, you can vote on that.

    But the rest of the awards are decided by the BAFTA in-crowd!

    No democratic in-put.

    So they aren’t worth more than a bucket of pig-sh-t…

     

    …to which The Maitlis is certainly entitled, and to which she’s most welcome!
