Minorities and the BBC

Listening to and watching the BBC, it seems that the vast amount of their output of general programmes and news and news-related programmes, feature, advocate and disproportionately support minorities.

A big question for me is, if you added up most these minorities would that be or represent a/the majority? If the answer is yes, then thats fine – but if, as I believe the answer is no, then there is (and UK society has) a problem. The problem being that there is no ‘representation’ of ‘normal’, ‘middle of the road’ people and their values, beliefs or opinions – and that is just on the BBC, never mind politically or more widely.

I recall that when I worked in the field of management and leadership development, there was little or no media available on good and effective management or leadership. This was largely because that was not entertaining and even seen as boring. It’s the same with most ‘commercial output’ on ‘analogue’ or ‘digital’ media – and certainly the BBC. Where are the ‘normal’ characters and/or plots on The Archers, Eastenders or Emmerdale? There used to be a lot on Coronation Street but even that has changed.

Whatever the reason, the BBC are obsessed with representing what they see as reality, in and around Portland Place. regarding our obligatory and apparently inevitable ‘diverse’ society. Listening to the Today programme on Radio 4 this morning, they had am ‘un-checked’ view from a representative of one of these minority groups “The way England is going to look in the futureā€… If that is not social engineering or brainwashing I don’t know what is. Then there was a feature supposedly about ‘classical music’ and even that was a thinly disguised focus on ethnic minorities.

There is, by the way, nothing inherently wrong with a ‘diverse society’, but not on this scale or so fast.

It is not necessary to name these key minorities, as anyone reading this will know and understand what and who they are. Amongst other things, the big issue seems to be, why are the publicly-funded BBC (and others) focussing on these groups – what is their motivation or objective in supporting, encouraging or possibly accelerating such social engineering and change?

The BBC Proms and all that…

Well, the big day for ‘music lovers’ has come…and gone. The programme for the “largest classical music festival in the world” is out today and continues the downward trend toward some form of ‘cross-over’ music prostituting itself under the guise of ‘classical music’. There are some truly ‘classical music’ concerts, don’t get me wrong, but there is no way that the entire programme is ‘classical’ or even in some cases “music” and then there is the usual liberal dose of BBC ‘virtue signalling’…which some may call propaganda or even brainwashing. It is so sad and the abuse of Sir Henry Wood’s concept for the Proms has been hijacked and polluted by the BBC long ago. He must be turning in his grave.

I switched on BBC Radio 4 as usual this morning to listen to the over-dramatised regurgitation of the same issues as yesterday and the day before…pretending to be NEWs. Suddenly and to my amazement, I heard the dulcet tones of Billy Bragg (who I can’t abide even for a few minutes) spouting his marxist theories for the salvation of mankind. Nothing new there I thought, but as always I wondered what he was ‘selling’…a lot of the BBC output these days are in fact trailers or adverts for their forthcoming programmes. So, I was firstly dumbfounded and then horrified to hear that this was indeed a trailer, but not for a BBC programme. It was in fact for a “speech” he was giving on (marxist) economics…AT THE BANK OF ENGLAND this afternoon, in London. I almost fell off my chair…as I did when I listened to his claptrap on YouTube this afternoon, which I did in order to reassure myself of my personal assessment of this dangerous man and his ideals. I can only assume he wrote the speech…because he read it…in his opulent study in his (by most people’s measure) ‘small Marxist palace’ or, perhaps, Dacha would be a better word.

Incidentally, Billy Bragg calls himself a “musician”, so it got me thinking as to whether he would ever appear at the BBC Proms, given the direction I mentioned earlier. Given the BBC and it’s ‘leftie’ views, I guess that is highly likely.
