For well over a decade, if you recall, South Yorks constabulary (and others) covered up the appalling sexual exploitation of some 1,500 under-age girls in and around the city of Rotherham.
As dereliction of duties go – leaving vulnerable girls to be sexually exploited by marauding gangs of Muslims - it takes some beating. Not according to the good old BBC. The astounding actions of South Yorkshire constabulary were quietly swept under the plush, BBC carpet. How strange.
They don’t much care for the police, the comrades in Broadcasting House. To the BBC the police represent the horrible, ugly face of all which is British. For a start off the majority of police recruits just happen to be of white ethnicity. Unforgivable.
In the minds of the BBC that makes the police at best “institutionally racist” but more than likely white supremacists. A majority white police force in a majority white country. Shocking.
One can only assume that 100% black police forces in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia etc. are just as “institutionally racist" as indeed must those of virtually every non-European country in the world.
Business owners take care for if your hairdressing shop, tea rooms or factory does not, like the BBC, employ disproportionate numbers of ethnic minorities, then you too could, like the police force, fall foul of the good folk of Broadcasting House.
Apparently forces like the Metropolitan stop and search large numbers of black youths. The BBC and their fellow Liberals don’t like it, not one little bit. They prefer to ignore the fact that a significant proportion of victims of street crimes such as mugging report black perpetrators. It’s not part of their ‘narrative.’
Last night’s coverage of Hillsborough verged on the gleeful. The BBC just couldn’t hide their delight. The inquest was plastered all over their news channels – radio and TV – BBC Newsnight came live from outside St George’s Hall in Liverpool where the effete Evan Davis asked “How do the victims’ families feel..?”
Bingo! A victim ‘narrative’ and a chance to kick the police in the teeth! No wonder the BBC were salivating. It just went on and on. You couldn’t escape it. It was there for all to see, BBC cynicism in all its ugly nakedness.
Funnily enough when the Rotherham grooming story eventually came out, Mr Davis was not to be found anywhere near the South Yorkshire town and he most certainly wasn't asking parents of molested girls how they felt. Davis and cronies didn't give a stuff about these particular victims.
Does anyone really believe these virtue signalling metropolitan elitists give a fig about our city and its people? Hillsborough, as the extensive coverage proved only too well, was a thinly-veiled excuse to even up a few old scores against the police, for the BBC to give these “institutional” racists a bloody nose. Nothing more, nothing less.
We, the people of Liverpool, were nothing more than useful idiots.
That mistakes were made on that awful day in April 1989 have been clear for many years. In an afternoon of unprecedented chaos men and women did indeed make catastrophic mistakes. People died, some of whom were known to myself and friends.
Unlike my noble friends at the BBC I prefer a more dignified response to this tragedy, ‘narrative’ or no ‘narrative.’ I’ll just say this: Who knows how each and every one of us would have reacted under similar circumstances? No amount of training can prepare an individual for the events that unfolded that afternoon.
Hillsborough was never black and white – however much the BBC would like it to have been.
To have then some ideologically infused BBC journalist turn up on your doorstep – one probably not even alive on that day – and have him or her wallow in a BBC ‘narrative,’ far from engendering vindication or admiration, makes me feel nothing more than contempt and revulsion.
Don’t expect the BBC’s pathological hatred of the British police force to stop anytime soon, not until the force follow the lead set out a Broadcasting House in which employment and promotion is based not on ability, but rather racial identity.
In the meantime, BBC you know what you can do with your faux outrage...
