Farage’s BBC face fuzz

If anyone believes the BBC had nothing more than an unfortunate and accidental pixelation error, they must believe in the tooth fairy, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster and a fat man in a red suit with flying reindeer, who can get down chimneys to leave presents every December…

Coming just a matter of hours after the media engaged in a bout of character assassination by trying to smear Farage with slurs that he is some kind of Nazi sympathising racist, the odds on this being a coincidence are astronomical.

Richard, who is better placed than many to comment on Farage’s character, has commented on EU Referendum about the media’s fetish for playing personality politics and the assault on the UKIP leader.

This blog holds no brief for Farage, but that is partly based on politics, partly on lack of competence, and the remainder is based on frustration at his ignorance of too many core issues and his refusal to articulate a cohesive and thought through plan for removing the UK from the EU.

His treatment at the hands of the media is just because he leads a party the media luvvies detest.  It is a disgrace.

    From the Independent:
    The picture was originally tweeted by BBC TV Sportscaster Olly Foster, before he deleted the post saying: “Apologies for my previous tweet. An error of judgement on my behalf.”

    So I guess that’s alright then. No harm done, just a silly joke. And of course no action to be taken as your surname isn’t Thatcher.

    I do not like politicians and political parties as a rule. So I do not really follow their silly self aggrandizing shin-digs, unless of course I happen to over hear something.

    This time, some UKIP bod was being covered by the BBC. He was talking about coal mines being linked to earth tremors. At that point the BBC cut to another story. I can only assume that he was comparing coal mining to fracking and that those who object to the later would have also objected to the material that help fuel the industrial revolution.

    I have no grudge or love for Farage and his party. But the BBC is a state funded broadcaster and UKIP is a legitimate political party which deserves to be listen to and reported upon. Not derided, unless it is part of some comedy sketch, which clearly this is not. And remember, this is the TV Channel that gave air time to the spokesmen of the murderous IRA, who killed men, women and even children. Shame on them !

    What little I tend to see of the BBC the more I feel it should be either made subscription access only or completely shutdown.

    Very relevant given Bloom’s outburst again today. There is clearly going to be a stitch up job on UKIP by the media. One presumes that if they are taking flak, they’re getting nearer to their target, or at least someone presumes they are because I for one am not seeing it at present.

    If it’s clear someone is out to get them, then at least senior party figures like Bloom should understand that and maintain some discipline in their communication.

    For me it doesn’t really matter what Bloom meant or didn’t mean when he used it. What matters is understanding whether anyone of clout will use it against you or not and what we’re seeing from the media, they are clearly not on UKIP’s side.

    It’s happened before, to Jim O’Neil of Goldman Sachs.
