Spot on.


Agreed. She asked for a personal mandate. She got one. Time to go.

Not much point reacting to a comment from mid April after the rollercoaster that's occurred inbetween, is there - the worst campaign in living history by an incumbent and a string of terror attacks - of course the landscape changed dramatically.

Obviously, nothing that May personally during recent weeks could have done about the attacks but she changed the landscape beyond belief with her ridiculous campaign #weakandwobbly

Too right, but if May goes - who knows who comes, and what type of "leader" they are. Parachuting in Boris Johnson?! The Tories don't have any suitable candidates to handle the complexity of the years to come for the UK.

The big hope as the EU gives an ongoing commentary is that think tank academics on this side start playing a role. Even if its just through the Times/Observer.
They also have the capacity to hire sharp minded political negotiators from stateside.

Sunday morning just looking at the sombre mood of the BBC breakfast presenters at the thoughts and discussions of Theresa must go.

Try and be impartial for once, hand out the party hats.

I see the BBC are doing their utmost in helping Theresa May and colleagues in framing a new Parliament post cabinet shuffle.

It wont work, the nation has moved on from all that bollocks, new media are already setting a new agenda.

So just fuck off May your time is done just fuck off.

Your getting irritating.

Whats your opinion of how the BBC are covering the Grenfell Tower disaster kk?, an event that really transcends politics. Mrs May is being torn a new one and Jezza is being portrayed as a Mother Theresa and Florence Nightingale mash up, in my humble opinion, or will these newsnights be too late for you as you needed to get up in the morning and day watch um?

I wonder how the BBC and the nation in general and its broadcasters would have covered this horrendous issue if the block had been situated in Sheffield, Leeds, Oldham, Burnley, Walsall, Brierley Hill, etc etc?

So far I would say the BBC coverage has been good because they have been available, listening to the people and given those people a voice.
The are in many ways a release valve for those people who has suffered loss and continue to suffer pain.

I expect the extreme views to be perpetuated by the newsprint media, because they have their own agenda.

BBC REPORTER to young yob literally jumping up snd down, grinning and throwing insults.

" I sense a great deal of anger here against the PM. How angry are you with Teresa May ? ".

That is incitement.

I thought you might approve of their 'coverage' now. One thing that amazes me after watching Sky news yesterday was just the uncanny amount of members of the Socialist Worker Party that lived in that block.

Amazing how the ignored 2008 report has been given so much coverage along with the cuts to the fire services after a report wss published stating that the Fire Service in London WAS NOT underfunded.

Interestingly, the same man was Housing Secretary in 2008 and responsible as Lord Mayor of London for that report. Funny hiw that's not reported ? .....Perhaps Mr Khan may be asked about it in the enquiry ?

I honestly hope ALL political parties and individuals are held responsible for their policies and actions in respect to this tragedy.
I further hope individuals do jail time.

I think all parties have to hold their hands up and admit guilt as and when found.

I think they will because there will be no hiding place.

Cameron admitted guilt over the Hillsborough disaster, I expect this one to follow suit.

I think the BBC is fine. Everyone should stop moaning about it and if there's summat you don't like (which happens to us all) you should read between the lines and move on.

There's inevitably going to be bias one way or another from time to time. No-one could credibly say that "Have I Got News For You" is right-wing slanted. :mrgreen:

Yep. They just interviewed Corbyn who informed us all that austerity and May are responsible for the Portuguese fires. What an evil woman.

I grew out of these type of programmes decades ago, I think it would have been around the same time I grew out of Doctor Who.
Millicent Martin was coming out with a dry line on TWTWTW.

I did watch Frankie Boyle last week I like his harder more direct delivery, not one to dance around the handbags is Frankie.
If it needs saying say it dont cover it with syrup.

Three politicians interviewed after the Queen's speech. One Tory, one Labour and one SNP.

Main lunch time news, only Labour and SNP given airtime.

Unbiased my arse

Today we have the opportunity to see how balanced the BBC is.

Yesterday Boris Johnson had his Diane Abbott moment.

She was vilified in every broadcast on every news programm, it was constant for days at every opportunity.
Yesterday Johnson was far worse at Interview with Eddie Mair and as yet the BBC have gone as far as calling it a struggle.

Lets see how this pans out and if Johnson receives the same press as Abbott.

I think you fail to understand that there is a difference in the level of reporting on Politician's faux pas during an election campaign and after it is over. The two cannot be compared. I've seen plenty of ridicule of Boris on the BBC over recent years.

Classic BBC this morning. After the usual slagging off of the Government and the Tory Council in Kensington, they revealed that according to their sources one more tower in North London had the cladding and the Council there were making excuses about the general safety of the block.

I couldn't hazard a guess at where in North London as mysteriously they didn't wish to say. However, I can say with absolute certainty there attempts to cover up the where and not name and shame the Council leads me to the conclusion.........It's not TORY.

Question Time gives plenty air time to UKIP (way more than it's 0 MPs call for) and a fair amount of their chief correspondents are open Tory supporters.

The BBC do a decent job of balance I find. Looking at every sentence spoken and looking for bias seems a bit LOL to be honest.. Ever heard of confirmation bias?

I guess to some people they may seem left wing when you compare them to the some parts of the media which are openly right-wing. Funny how the people crying out about BBC bias don't seem to be bothered by that.

On a side note. The Guardian just made the Daily Mail shit a brick with just one cartoon. It's quite frankly, glorious. The toys are well and truly out of the pram.

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/o ... dedf0058cc?

For added feeling of self righteousness, just remember how the Daily Mail mocked an entire religion for getting upset over other cartoons.

I think the difference mate, is I can choose which rag I want to read, as you say the bias in the media plain to see. The BBC is this country's flagship ( and paid for by us all) news service, traditionally seen by the world as being fair and open minded. Not any more

Edited to add every time you quote Owen Jones, God strangles a puppy.

Interesting question time last night if only to see the mood of the nation.

The very vocal Corbynista asked to leave which was right but for this to happen for a bloke to have the confidence to rise shows the change in confidence.

Not so dismissive now, host, fellow panelists and audience because Jeremy Corbyn now demands equal respect.
I thought Gina Miller was good the others less so.
