I'm not often impressed by David Cameron but on this I most certainly am:

 

 

It would have been very easy for him to have kept his head down and not done this.  Yet he did and will most likely get a big bunch of people frothy mouthed about nothing.  I saw the ranting on the EDL Facebook page about ITV daring to broadcast sunrise and sunset times for Ramadan, I'd hate to see what they'd say about this!


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

And Dewsbury is a highly marginal Tory held seat with a lot of Muslims in it.

It is a good message sent out by the PM but I hope he will do this for the other faiths in the UK when their key religious dates come around.

A matter of opinion.  I've noted that when Cameron does well WATO reports it in full, when he does poorly they hardly mention it.  Loads of pro Tory bias on this BBC programme.

I watched bits of it live. I had to, what with working at home and there being no decent sport on.

Yer 'avin' a larff!   :)  :)

 

You undoubtedly live in a fantasy world, a virtual world, if  you see ANY "Tory" bias in any BBC programme. BBC News and Current Affairs is by its own admission, institutionally biased towards the left.

 

To some extent, it is almost duty bound to stake a position opposite to the incumbent govt  to challenge them and to question them and in this case as the Govt is right wing, then of course the'll come over as biased towards the left.

However,  the fact that the "opposition" are at best incompetent and talnetless is no excuse for BBC News and Current Affairs to act as a Labour and Trades Unions proxy.

I always find this funny; bias is obviously in the eye of the beholder. ;) Those of the left always perceive the BBC to be right wing while those to the right perceive the opposite. I therefore conclude the BBC must be doing a pretty decent job by upsetting both. :D

Having worked there I'd say the BBC is very middle class, very liberal, very metropolitan, very multicultural. But it's not in any way left wing.

How exactly does BBC News & Current Affairs 'act as a Labour and Trades Unions proxy'?

The bombing of Libya, The occupation of Afghanistan, the arming of the "rebels" in syria, 100% unwavering support for Israel, selling arms to barbaric regimes in the gulf etc.

Yup - but I would say the BBC is giving the Coalition a surprisingly easy ride at the minute, especially on its main news website which frequently leads with government policy and its supposed impacts without any real challenge to the veracity of any figures, statements etc used.
