Sins of omission

The whole Jeremy Corbyn/antisemitic Facebook group story may be igniting large parts of my social media timeline - as it's done for days - but the BBC's timeline is remaining stubbornly indifferent to it. 

Sky (among many others), for instance, reported yesterday that former chief rabbi Lord Sacks - a high-profile public figure - said he wouldn't sit down with Jeremy Corbyn until Labour took "resolute action" to tackle antisemitism in the party. 

Now that, to me at least, is newsworthy and I'd expect the BBC to report it. But, as far as I can see, the BBC hasn't reported it.


  1. The BBC were a big part of my life in my younger years.

    It's been like watching a good friend succumb to alcoholism and become some shell of what they were before.

    But, at some point, you know you aren't doing your friend any favours by giving him any more of your money. You have to be cruel to be kind.

    The BBC have betrayed our trust in all the worst possible ways you could imagine really, when you think about it: deliberately trying to deprive us of our country, our culture and our future.

    There's no question in my mind that the BBC has to be cleared off the scene. But I still say it with sadness because I remember a BBC that seemed dedicated to democracy, to free speech, to women's rights, to individualism and to British culture (Shakespeare, Johnson, Burns, Dickens, Gilbert and Sullivan, Joyce, Elgar, Greene etc). It was the BBC who deserted us, not the other way around.

  2. Talk about sins of omission?
    Heard the Sunday Worship show on Radio 4 this morning. Loads of PC guff about women prisoners in America not being able to be home for Mothers Day. Nothing much about how and why they got long sentences and chose to behave as they did. No Gospel content, no point at all but to get women prisoners exempted from what they do and did.
    Can`t imagine that this compassion would extend to Jayda Fransen now in prison...Katie Hopkins or Lindsay Sandiford, or to the wrong sort of mum like Jade Goody or Katie Price. RIP Jade-one mum who died so that others might see how low we had fallen as a society. It`s got worse since then if anything.
