The BBC: where did it all go wrong?
For an organisation built on objectivity, impartiality and neutrality. the output of BBC has been nudged to the left for the past twenty years, in a very specific effort to dilute and offset the innate English national tendency, which is to be conservative and suspicious.
So Labour politicians inserted governors and appointed others "in their own image" - like Mark Thompson - to devise and implement a long term project of social engineering, to reflect what is broadly described as the bundle of assumptions and presumptions that sum up the view of those labelled as "politically correct".
This clip is one of many examples of where the BBC has plainly lost its way. We have seen the result of politicians and their assumptions concerning economic development; dare we now allow "received opinion" and assumption to exclude the possibility that global warning is another monumental misjudgement, waiting to blow up in our faces?
What about the possibility that global warming is a construct of politicians eager to address the political problems of dwindling oil reserves in the hands of despots - and scare new taxes out of the gullible?
Yet the one global crisis "proven beyond all doubt" that impinges on every aspect of the planet's resources is that of over population. How much time has the BBC devoted to placing that item on the agenda? Injudicious building on flood plains on the UK is the result of population pressure, not global warming.
