Possibly. I think there are people out there who get their info from the BBC, alone. And given that the Beeb have their own interpretation of fair and balanced [unless Corbyn f***s up we can't report on anything Boris does. Lies about Corbyn don't count] they will be unaware of the reality.

But in truth I think the more likely reality is the polls are bullshit.

Trump denying the NHS is part of US-UK trade talks again. Don't believe it personally, but he has clearly been instructed to rule it out completely as expected.

Was always going to happen. Getting Boris and an extremely pro-Republican party into number 10 is all that matters at the moment.

That was particularly cunty from Bloom. Can understand disagreeing with the article/message, but to f***ing say that? Jesus, we're in a bad place. For every denunciation of that comment, there's a few that love him for it.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

So Labour voters criticise BBC of favoring the Conservatives and Conservative voters criticise BBC for favoring Labour. :lol: Guess that means they are pretty good at being neutral in a way.

All sides seem to hate the BBC for either being mean to their side or not being supportive enough. Maybe if it was a subscription service people would have different expectations.

Could it be that you focus on what they report negatively about your party instead of what they report about the opposition?

The Hairsprayed Harlot [Hartley Brewer] had similar words of comfort, claiming that this isn't just about his children, it's everybody's children and debates  need to take place to prevent it happening again. Well aye, but not through the media.

If MI5 are perusing the letters page of the Daily Star, for solutions, we're completely f***ed.

The BBC's problem over the last few years hasn't been a lack of impartiality as such, it's that they've tried to be too impartial and that has allowed liars and conmen to be given a level playing field alongside everyone else. As those liars and conmen have gained prominence, become Prime Minister for example, it becomes more and more difficult for a news organisation attempting to remain balanced to call them what they are.

The BBC is, in the end, no different from any other public service in that its funding and direction is ultimately dictated by government, and this government is doing to it what they do to all public services, undermining it to the point where they can f*** it off and allow private companies to fill the gap. Then we'll have Fox News and we'll realise we should have supported what we had a little bit more instead of stamping our feet and demanding it becomes Netflix.

It's good news, considering London voted remain. Now if we can get the leavers, in the North to pull their heads out of their arses we'll be alright.
