The BBC continues on its long chosen road of opposition to Brexit, hostility to populist movements, veneration of the world of elites and international treaties, and a slavish following to everything wokeish. In interview after interview we have the same tropes and tired questions, nearly always asked from the point of view that the UK government is to blame for the world’s ills and more government and a bigger public sector would solve many of them.
All this requires an avalanche of sloppy thinking and a passion for olds over news. It also means a relish for unseen contradictions. Here’s a few questions:
Why was it so crucial to have a zero tariffs free trade deal with the EU, yet a similar deal with Australia or the USA would according to recent questions and features be ruinous?
If the BBC really is concerned about UK farming, why has it never examined the great damage done by EU policy and EU imports to our ability to feed ourselves from flourishing food producing UK farms?
Why does the BBC not recognise England and go on about England as much as it does about Scotland?
Why does the BBC persist in wanting to break England up into Euro style regions, given the way elected regional government was rejected by electors when offered?
Does Manchester which gets plenty of BBC coverage speak for Liverpool or Blackpool?
Given the BBC dislike of border fences and anti migrant policies why hasn’t it run features on the Spanish frontier at Ceuta or the long border fences and walls of central Europe?
Why has it never explored the relationship between the so called austerity policies of the Osborne era which it disliked and following the Maastricht rules on state debt and deficits?
I could go on with many more. You might like to supply some.
