    Default Can someone tell the BBC that getting people on to moan is not news

    BBC news now seems to be an endless stream of utter feckwits dragged on to moan about something, usually how the government are not giving them something. Egged on with "what more do you think the government could be doing" style prompts from the newsreader.

    Can they not find some natural disasters to talk about.

    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Anything vaguely damaging to our planet like global warming scientists like Bono, Swampy or Bob Geldof get as much exposure as they want, anything anti Labour is supressed, anything anti Tory I promoted

    But apart from that they're quite balanced

    It is the way they get punters on as they think that their view is somehow valuable or interesting, does not matter they have no clue what they are talking about.

    Maybe you should watch BBC Radio
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I thought only Scottish people moaned?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    The BBC dont do news any more, because by the time they get hold of it, it's already been around the interweb twice, so it's not new any more.
    So they do comments instead. And Analysis


    which is where the moaning comes in.
