The Telford story finally made it onto BBC One's News at Ten last night, at 10.25 pm...
Let's have a look at some of the day's other news stories now then: The leader of Telford and Wrekin Council in Shropshire is calling on the Home Secretary to order an independent public inquiry into cases of child sexual exploitation in the town. It follows reports claiming that hundreds of girls may have been abused in the town since the early 1980s.
That was it in its entirety.

Update: The story is actually on the BBC News Home page today:

The chosen angle is that West Mercia Police's Superintendent for Telford & Wrekin, Tom Harding, has claimed that the Sunday Mirror's story has been "sensationalised" and that the offenders aren't predominantly groups of 'Asian' men.

14.15 Update to an update: It's gone from the Home page now.

Further Update: One BBC programme has covered it though ('watertight oversight'), and its editor has a 'Gotcha!' for the Daily Mail:


  1. Way beyond bias. Just censorship. Don't watch or listen to the BBC is you want to know what's going on.

  2. Hang on - one moment it's news fit only for Shropshire, then suddenly it's news to be broadcast to the whole of the UK? How do they explain that disparity. They can't but we can of course because we know their news agenda is chosen in a highly ideological manner, to suit the PC Multiculturalist project.

  3. Telford story link
    A report has been published on the BBC website today with a typical BBC slant to the story
    Superintendent Tom Harding is saying
    "I don't believe Telford is any worse than lots of places across England and Wales,"
    and Supt Harding disputed claims offenders are predominantly groups of Asian men adding,
    "What I would say is sexual offending across Telford and Wrekin is virtually identically proportionate to the break-down of society, so it is not one particular section over others and we will tackle it wherever it is."

    Is it just me or is he trying to normalise these crimes with the first statement?

    Another common purpose plod methinks. The long march across the institutions in all its glory.

    1. I was just adding an update to the post as you were writing your comment. It is a very typical BBC slant.
