Ben Delicious writes from London: The politically correct brigade are in panic in Britain. Its beloved mouthpiece, the publicly funded BBC, has been caught shielding a paedophile. Facts have been finally made public about the late Jimmy Savile getting frisky with some underage girls during his time as a Top Of The Pops presenter. Though rumours were abounding for years, the commissars at the BBC would hear nothing of it. Jimmy was a star and a leftie and it was enough for the grey suits at the Corporation to close their eyes about what he was up to between filming his shows.
The funniest thing about the scandal that had been suppressed by the BBC for years is the way it does everything to ignore the bad news. Leftie organs of print are doing the same, belittling the subject and providing wall-to-wall coverage of the useless Labour conference in Manchester where idiotic statements are made by the Comrades who only two years ago were successfully destroying Britain. (Imagine, Ed Balls, the Shadow Chancellor, actually talking bollocks about how he would save the British economy if he were a real Chancellor.)
The reason why the PC brigade are terrified is obvious: what if, they think, other big and so big names at the BBC were found out? Now that would be something, wouldn’t it? Would make the phone tapping scandal at the late News of the World look modest. You can’t really imagine a huge broadcaster that promotes promiscuity and other filth being an example of modesty and good behaviour within its walls. It just doesn’t work like that in the real world.
But there is an even bigger threat to the mighty propaganda machine of the Left that is funded by the taxpayers even though it works against their interests. What if questions were raised about the left-wing bias of the BBC? Lefties are known for their obsession with shagging and kinky practices. So one thing might actually become linked to another in the minds of some people who have not yet been brainwashed by political correctness to such an extent that they can no longer distinguish good from bad.
And then bigger problems may arise and more unpleasant questions asked. And, the most harrowing thought for any lefty, what if demands to privatise the monstrosity that has lost all ability to make decent programmes start to grow? Sure, the current coalition which consists of liberals will try to resist any attempt to sell off the BBC. But it is still a terrifying thought for the Left even to imagine a situation when the idea itself becomes even remotely plausible.
It’s actually a good time for independent TV news channels to start digging up information about the evil empire that is the BBC. Especially as it has been damaging the commercial broadcasting sector for decades, lowering overall standards and pushing out small companies. Time for the BBC to get a kick up its publicly funded arse.
