Id just like to say a massive thank you to Trilby, for telling me the open championship winner, on a chit chat"when will the bbc cease to exist" fred.Just about to watch the 2 hour open programme before i go on the night shift.  Didnt know the winner, and was really looking forward to it. Just watching the tour de france on itv 4, then the open. Any chance of telling me the bike race winner before the finish .

it is not the foreign correspondents you need to worry about

it is the relentless foreign cultural propaganda

it is strange how it is linked to the continual promotion of the eu view which coincides with the support of one culture against the majority

but does this not fit in with merkel(oops!!- eu thinking) on the matter of immigration?  for instance

It's remarkable that nearly all the popular shows are American.
While we've pumped billions into the BBC that seems to produce dross in comparison, with only the odd programme or two of note.

Which is to be expected from a company that isn't answerable to its audience for support.
And a shocking state of affairs where the customer doesn't matter.

The beeb has cancelled the Daily Politics and This week and is replacing them with new shows apparently more targetted to a "younger audience". Give me strength.
Tommorow is the last show.

These two shows are two of the only shows worth watching on the BBC as they aren't dumbed down left wing crap.

Can we look forward to someone reading out twitter and instagram messages (to get down with the social media kidz) and then an ethnically diverse hipster group "rapping" about austerity and how great the EU and Corbyn are, then a Frankie Boyle socialist "comedy" slot? ...

A show being popular doesn't mean it's not dross... Mrs Brown's Boys is popular. Plain
We also get to cherry pick the "best" American shows. How many billions do US channels pump into tv programming? Is there a complete absence of dross?

The BBC has agreed to pay Sir Cliff Richard £850,000 towards his legal costs within 14 days, following his privacy case against the corporation.

A judge ruled the BBC infringed the singer's privacy in its reporting of a police raid on his home in 2014, awarding him £210,000 in damages.

Sir Cliff was never arrested or charged as part of the investigation.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44963548

'The singer's privacy'??? These lawyers must be bloody fantastic to a) run up a £850k bill and b) get their client 210 bags on such a flimsy charge.

I've no time for the BBC but if Plod tipped them off about someone as famous as Cliff facing an investigation, shouldn't they go in? I find it all a bit odd.
