BBC sinks to a new low

leave a comment »

With the once respected BBC now only interested in trash news and group hysteria (in part exacerbating the situation), how can it be trusted on far more serious matters that may or may not be occurring in parallel with this non story?

Fight back club: Actually, this is an easy one. Don’t buy a TV, so you can avoid paying the license fee. Instead, purchase a computer monitor and pick and choose what you want off the Internet through those various paid or free streaming and downloading services. Problem is I suppose, once the BBC are broke, they will sink even lower and sell advertising and become like one of those trashy US networks. Oh dear!

Has anyone noticed the dearth of any comedy on primetime TV any more? Where is laugh out loud humor like The Two Ronnies, Morecombe and Wise and others? Dystopia indeed. There is a reason why this has happened, but politically correct laws in the UK probably forbid the discussion of such a subject. Frightening in itself!

Update: The BBC have sunk even lower. Remember folks, your children are supposed to look up to the beeb for influence. Now they will be dragged down and not know better. What a nightmare for parents!

The madness continues

It is easy to blog and have a moan about increasing examples of justice in reverse, so in due course, I am going to get pro-active and start some form of organisation to help people who continue to be persecuted by the remnants of the previous government’s actions. (I have spent way too much time here in Oxford dealing with political matters to try to improve the quality of life for all. 85% success.) Thing is, got enough on my plate as it is. What to do being the country has become so blind to it’s fate and no one cares. Sadness. 😦

Fight back club: Fight back? Watch telly and stop worrying? Leave? Get massively drunk? Curl back under the duvet and forget this is happening? Etc..

Words for the day

Whilst researching the movie Soylent Green after reading this, I found the comment below within the Wikipedia entry – somewhat prophetic in view of the state of the world today:

“SciFi.com film reviewer Tamara Hladik calls the film a “basic, cautionary tale of what could become of humanity physically and spiritually [if humans do not take care of the planet.]”. She points out that “there is little in this film that has not been seen in other films”, such as the film’s depiction of “faceless, oppressive crowds; sheep mentality; the corrosion of the soul, of imagination, [and] of collective memory”.

Fight back club: Remain human (No pun intendead)

…why is crap like this and this still going on? (And how about this massive invasion of privacy!) Thought you guys were going to bring an end to our move towards a guilty until proven innocent repressive state flooded with jobsworths out to entrap people?

And on the subject of The Daily Mail (which I rarely read or quote), why is it that people use the term ‘Daily Mail readers’ with contempt? I don’t read it specially (I browse ALL papers online or in print if there’s one laying around), but if the paper is doing it’s job of defending common sense and democracy, what’s not to like, other than the trashy voyeuristic celeb tosh in the right column? Or is our population slowly becoming indoctrinated into favouring an authoritarian way of existence? And if so, life will become devoid of love and sincerity by about 2015. Nice!

Fight back club: Protest.
