Yep. BBC/C4 Grief Whoring - C4 yesterday was 90% GreenFail Tower

Singing Manchester

Remember Manchester: Look Back...

Mawkishness infects Manchester.

Meanwhile most NI remember past when police & army combatted terrorists, supported patriots and NI soldiered on like Lee Rigby's family. Yes, I and many are angry about Gov't & police appeasement.

Who decides what's politically acceptable, Mr Zuckerberg?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5GhOxkgKeE

Zuckerberg thinking: "The thought police UK & EU empower, dastardly Trump dismantling USA's"

Zuckerberg looks very angry in face, eyes & body language at being called out.

Reply was platitudes, evasion, diversion - nothing speak.

Agree?

Having had to turn BBC Radio 4 off twice today when the Manchester bombing anniversary was being cloyingly celebrated by simpering presenters with limited vocabulary - I'm not surprised at all that the BBC Breakfast TV show apparently managed to describe the event as "an accident"

I can understand marking the moment - but the shiftily skewed victimhood stuff I heard was better left unsaid imho.

Middle of tonights BBC Look North had what amounted to an advert for US funded lobby group Client Earth, that's who must have supplied the animated graphics for a report that said 'government clean air law talk, Scunthorpe most polluted'
To me that is FakeNews since Scunthorpe is so windy, away from the sensor the air is clean.

It seems the Australian Broadcast Corporation is generating a lack of trust.

http://joannenova.com.au/2018/05/one-third-of-australia-wants-public-abc-spending-cut-14-cents-a-day-but-not-worth-it/

"One third of Australia wants public ABC spending cut. That’s 14 cents a day but Not Worth It

New essential poll today shows 35% of respondents support cutting spending on the ABC.

The ABC once had a hallowed status, but those days are over. One in three Australians are not enthused with non-stop naked Green-Labor advertising combined with derision and scorn for the deplorable half of the population."

How to destroy your brand:

1. Appoint Susan Rice as a Director

2. Sign multi-year deal with Obamas

@Pcar I'm watching Korowai Tribe part 3
Of course the beeboid is naive
#1 His tribal contact keeps tapping him for money on the grounds that since tribe-man has given all previous payment away, he hasn't been paid, ie they don't have our concepts of money
#2 Beeboid has paid porters £10/day and cooks £40 ..
that seems crazy to me, it's like paying a £million/day
..you should just negotiate to bring them stuff like boots/tools etc.
That's why you leave tribes alone so you don't corrupt them and as well as give them the diseases we carry.

#3 You have to avoid being treated as a cash machine ..by giving out the signals all the time, that keep their respect for you . Eg have value as a joker man as a person they don't feel inferior to.

#4 He goes into the jungle and finds the last 2 old men living in a treehouse
..but it's rotting and they can't repair it
#5 The next 2 we see have moved from a falling down treehouse and into the special huts that were built for the film crew last time.

#6 Last half of the show he stupidly goes back to the village 3 months later and it turns into a massive standoff, mad bow and arrow man etc.
but he has quite a large team of his own maybe 10 altogether mostly English speaking PNG people at least 2 of which are women and they have masses of kit. ..a complete circus.
..To me that is a totally different dynamic from going in alone or with just 1 translator
When I have been in remote places I find that I can go to places where my local contacts can't go
eg I can go to both Muslim and Christian areas.
And quite often I pay less than the local contact would

Do you think that the dialing up is selective? To me certain areas seem not unreasonable. Scottish Highlands and Island, Norway/Sweden and France all see to be roughly what you'd expect from low population density.

UK & RoI illumination looked how I'd expect [from memory]:

Scotland: Central belt and East Coast from Edinburgh to Aberdeen
NI: Belfast and surrounding area
RoI: Dublin and surrounding area
England: dark in Cumbria, Cornwall, Norfolk, East Anglia etc
Wales: central belt from Severn bridge

Harrabin on Vine show claimed the government laws on woodburners are unworkable
"Councils don't currently have the power to prosecute people for it"
..Tosh ..they can make smokeless zones, but most don't bother to prosecute

.. In Lancaster a guy was fined £9,500

Similar in Preston pub 2013
