The Fool On The Hill

Stephen Pollard really wasn't impressed by the BBC's behaviour yesterday:


  1. The BBC News website this morning has ten or so anti Trump 'news stories' - Oh, and one anti Brexit. No positive acknowledgement of the will of the majority of the US voting public whatsoever. This is becoming a carbon copy of the BBC's UK EU Referendum coverage in support of the Remoaners. The BBC are confused. Is this biassed coverage of the US election served up for the benefit of the majority of UK Licence payers (who they have already labelled as uneducated and racist), or is it a pathetic attempt to join forces with the US intellectual elite, who they (mistakenly) think are all anti Trump?

  2. Whatever it is, it's an annoying waste of my money.

  3. The BBC is currently unaccountable. But fools can leap too far. They claim to speak for the nation. This will not play well outside the bubble.

  4. See the BBC at its most out of touch with the UK electorate - you know, the ones who pay their Licence fees:

    Here we have in a nutshell the opinions of some self-appointed London-type 'grievers' who were genuinely caught by surprise when it dawned upon them that people 'in the rest of the country' do not share their pro EU views.

    Never mind, with 'Hands across the Sea', they can all share their grief at the outcome of the UK Referendum with their cousins in the USA, as they themselves come to terms with the Trump victory. I'm sure the average US citizen will be delighted to have a group hug with some of our remoaners.

    1. "But what's going to solve it is truly grasping you're making a big mistake in having really believed that you know what's best."

      I think they may have gotten it about right.

  5. Nick Curtis in the Evening Standard wasn't impressed with BBC coverage of election night:

    "By contrast, the BBC’s Neil and his co-host Katty Kay seemed to be sniggering at the whole event, as if it were a remote contest in rural Bavaria, something beneath them.

    As the votes rolled Trump’s way they began to act as if they had been set an amusing intellectual problem, while Jeremy Vine capered around a series of computer-generated graphs, like a grinning Zebedee in an unwise shirt.

    Thank goodness for Emily Maitlis, bringing gravitas to each new win or surprise reversal. The BBC’s talking heads all looked a bit frightened."
