One rule for the BBC & another for.....

The BBC have done it again it appears.
Currently (as I'm sure you're all aware ) there's  an awful lot of bellicose rantings going on between North Korea and the affluent nations of the West. Threats & counter threats emanate between the despotic 'government' in Pyongyang & Washington, London et al.
Now it appears the good 'ole have cast their hand into the melee.
It appears as thought a group of students from the London School of Economics went on an educational field trip to the North Korean capital & surrounding area. But unbeknown to the university & the student a group, of undercover BBC reporters infiltrated the group & went along also with the intention of making a propaganda TV programme on the troubled,paranoid far eastern nation.
The action of the BBC apparently put the lives of the students at considerable risk & the students & university are up in arms about the action of the BBC demanding that the TV programme not be shown this evening on UK national television.
The BBC have refused to withdraw the programme.
So here we have it. Given the psychotic nature of the North Korean 'government' & the pretty good chance there is that the students would at best be thrown into prison with hard labour were the infiltration discovered,it seems a bit risky to go ahead & screen.
The BBC seems to think that's it ok  to do so but not ok to play a record from the top ten hit parade that has the lyrics from the 1938 Wizard of Oz film that goes something like "...ding dong the witch is dead... The BBC refused to play this song (now at number 2 in the Top 20 because they said it was disrespectful to Margaret Thatcher.(!)
Damn it the witch IS DEAD.The students are ALIVE. The BBC behaved with underhand dangerous deceit. They should get their priorities right.

My last rant about Thatcher-I hope!!

The funeral of Thatcher is some day next week. I'm not sure exactly when to be honest. I will NOT be watching any news bulletins on TV from Tuesday thru to Friday in case there is coverage of it.
But I found this today which I thought I'd share with you.

Please left click on the photo to view it in its entirety.

Enough said??

This country is mad, totally insane

Ding Dong the witch is dead....
C'mon, what's all the crap about a state funeral? The type of funeral accorded to The Queen Mother & Lady Di apparently. I could argue that their funeral was a waste of money but lets look at it this way shell we?? The Queen ma & Lady Di din't exactly ask to be born into the status they were born into, they had no choice on their life style or how they lived in reality, However Thatcher did. She chose to reek havoc & wreck thousands of peoples lives & had no conscience about what she did. So why are we, the tax paying people who suffered at her hands having to pay an astronomical amount for her funeral?
I won't bore you with all my objections to her acts, deeds & policies. I cannot see anything decent about the person. She was not, as those with short memories claim "a humble grocer's daughter from Grantham". She was a grocer's daughter who had a millionaire husband who financed her political career.
However I do believe this: You should NEVER judge a corpse by its funeral.

Margaret Thatcher

I don't believe its the sad day that lots of people believe it to be-I mean the death of Thatcher. She .died in her sleep today. God knows, if there was ever injustice in this world it was that that witch died in her sleep after all the misery she poured upon the majority of Britons during her time.
She was a warmonger, a destroyer of morale, robber of children's milk,destroyer of the British coal industry, home wrecker, robber of workers rights etc etc.
I morn her not. A bank holiday should be declared to mark her death.
And what what on earth is President Obama on about in his warm words about the witch? God almighty he was only a fresh faced boy when Thatcher was destroying the United Kingdom!
I morn her not.
