Some Effing Shyte ‘Presenter’ on the BBC ‘News’ Channel with a panel load of 'Efniks' calling ALL white people dumb. . . .for voting to leave the EU, and casting aspersions upon the general 'Intelligence' and pathetic 'Intelect' inherent in 'WHITE' people.. . . .YES, I know, it's just the BBCs constant propaganda, but sometimes it just gets my bloody goat. . . .


Yeah, I guess we really ARE the dumb ones. . . .


Renaissance, Industrial Revolution, steam power, mechanisation of factories, internal combustion engine, telephone, penicillin, DNA, television, surgical dressings, constitutional government, hygiene, antibiotics, supersonic air travel, heart and organ transplants, modern medicinal drugs ...Beethoven, Newton, DaVinci, Shakespeare, Pasteur, Mozart, Kepler, Turner, Aristotle, Pasteur, Galileo, Rembrandt, Brunel, Bach, Michelangelo, Pythagoras, Archimedes, Descartes, Fermat, Stephenson, Leibniz, Von Neumann, Pascal, Chaucer, Copernicus, Van Gogh, Ptolemy, Laplace, Chopin, Dickens, Schubert, Babbage, Vivaldi, Curie, Tesla, Faraday, Bell, Edison, Boyle, Hippocrates, Jenner, Lister, Monet.Thales,Heracleitus, Pheidas, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Diogenes, Zeno, Thomas Acquinas, William of Ockham, Erasmus, Paracelsus, Caravaggio, Reubens, Leonardo, Homer, Hesiod, Herodotus, Aristophanes, Sophocles, Euripides, Aeschylus, Hiero of Alexandria, Anaxagoras, Polybius, Isocrates, Theucydese.Babbage, Tommy Flowers, Alan Turing, John Logie Baird, Barnes Wallis. .Rod Stiff. .Slim Dusty,. .

Over to you Mr BBC "White people are dumb people" Please explain. . . .


Someone once said that White people are supposed to take responsibility for what their ancestors did hundreds of years ago, while others,. . . . do not even take responsibility for what their children do today. . . .seems fair dunnit ?

deep breaths phil

Thank you for that Phil. . . .I have just reminded Brenda ( that is our nickname for Her Maj ) in an email to Buckingham Palace,. . . that she STILL HAS THE ROYAL PREROGATIVE.


And if Article 50 is as full of holes and legal obfuscations as it appears, THAT. . .She can simply overule the Parliament using this prerogative, and use the ONLY instrument which can remove us from the EU morass. . . . .Anthony Blair ( Ex-PM ) tried to have this power removed during his tenure, but it was beyind his remit.


There fore, If HRH decides that we are better off OUT of the EU,. . .she can simply invoke this privilege and revoke the 1972 European Communities Act, and everything, including all and every treaty signed by UK ministers which followed this would be immediately null and void.


Whether she WILL do this, is the point. The Monarch has not interfered in parliamentary Democracy for a long time, BUT, should the will of the people, in a democratic vote, be denied, . . .she really has no choice as Monarch. . . .A seriouslly heavy load for such an elderly person. . . .but seeing this pronunciation, by a lwyer working inside the Government,. . .there may be no alternative. . . .




Article 50 means that the UK is trapped until 2022+ with all EU liabilities. Use Royal Prerogative NOW. Repeal 1972 now not later.

I doubt that the Queen would interfere, she has never done so in the past. You get the government you deserve, that was part of my reasoning in becoming an ex Pom. Now there are so many poms in Australia that we are going the same way with the present government. They think they are born to rule and the voters are only there to be hoodwinked.


I was brought up with the song, There will always be an England and England will always be free. What a load of rubbish that is and Aus is going the same way.

The ABC is the same tax payer funded leftard BS.

So on the ABC today we have:


Rage (music videos)


Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries


Vera (British crime show)


David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef


Australia's Remote Islands


Chateau Downunder - A Wine Revolution (documentary of the Australian wine industry)


Outback Choir (documentary following a regional country children's choir)


When the Beatles Drove Us Wild (documentary)


ABC News (ya know - it just reports the news - you don't have to like the news if you don't want to)


New Years Eve telecast


So.....which of these shows are taxpayer funded leftard BS?


I suspect you mean "A teeny tiny proportion of ABC shows are opinion/political shows and I don't like what they say, therefore my immaculate logical reasoning is that everything the ABC has ever done is taxpayer funded leftard BS".

Hey Phil... just a suggestion mate... if you don't like the BBC, why don't you just... not watch it?

Same goes for you with the ABC Teckair. These things are not compulsory viewing.

Well there you go again Marty. Using logic where none exists.


I think a smattering of shows on Fox, namely Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and a couple of other opinion shows are absolute garbage. However Fox as a TV channel itself actually has many really interesting shows which I quite enjoy. So I don't say "Fox TV is extreme right-wing conservative nutjob sky-fairy tosh which should be wiped off the face of the Earth", which would be a fair comment if Hannity was the only thing I ever watched on it. I specify the shows I don't like, I don't watch them, but I watch the others I enjoy without judging the entire channel.


But this is using common sense.

It is intriguing to me when people say the ABC or BBC is rubbish,if you think it is BS then why do you watch it, if you don't watch it then how do you know it is rubbish (other than Andrew Bolt told you)..


Since the age of watching what we say and pc is over I feel that I can now say exactly what I think (yes it cuts both ways) So I am assuming that those who think the BBC is rubbish have watched the docos about quantum physics or perhaps the history of chemistry or the solar system and have either analysed them and found them to be inaccurate or they don't understand them or they think that knowledge is some kind of left wing plot. I can understand that they don't like BBC news because it perhaps does not support their gut feeling about things but if you feel that BBC science and history docos are rubbish PLEASE provide examples. To help you out here is a list of BBC docos but OF COURSE no one will seriously give me any supporting evidence that the BBC is full of rubbish, instead they will probably call me a "libtard" that oh so witty word that always reminds me of an inadequate teenage boy who is raging at the world because they are having trouble coping with it.

Y'know, Octave got me thinking about why I prefer ABC and SBS.


In my past I worked in a media hub where news feeds passed through, on their way to the TV stations. We got to see the whole of each "news" item before the stations "edited" it down to fit their time slot and (sadly) their bias. Apart from news getting delayed by sometimes days, I was constantly amazed to see the final news items when finally aired. Apart from critical information getting lost, often the loss of context created a whole new meaning to the news item. And this was achieved without anybody actually telling any lies.


Most of our commercial news is purchased from U.S. Media. It has already been edited to match its US audience before arriving here. Sometimes An Aussie does a voiceover to give the impression that the news Was gathered by a Aussie.


At least ABC Aust and SBS have more overseas reporters and journos, so their news is less filtered before being fed to us. And there is a reason for them to have a very good worldwide reputation, in our biased and imperfect world.

Exactly! have you noticed left of centre people love the ABC?

- I probably know half a dozen "left of centre" people who love the ABC


- I know some conservative people who also love the ABC but don't watch its current affairs shows.


- I know one extremely right wing person who gets all their news from Breitbart and thinks almost everything is a left wing conspiracy.


- I know some left of centre people who don't watch the ABC much at all.


- the population of Australia is about 24 million.


What can I confidently conclude about the ABC from all these facts?


That some people watch it and some people don't.
