    It's both despicable and disgusting. The BBC is meant to be politically impartial considering they are funded by license fee and subsidised by the government - political impartiality is part of their contract.
    It is the equivalent of censorship - the BBC ignores complaints and when people attempt to speak about it on the radio, Nolan cuts them off.

    If someone called in saying "open the borders, we need refugees" then he would be happier and keep them on for much longer.
    You really need to get out more.

    If you're one of those who believes the BBC doesn't harbour an ingrained bias towards left-wing cultural viewpoints, then I encourage you to listen to this.

    I thought it was bad enough they were willing to exploit the death of 3 year old children for the purposes of amassing political capital and forcing their ideological indoctrination on the UK, but this is something else:

    Horrible. Nigel Farage exposed them along time ago as a left wing broadcaster. It's wrong our taxes fund a left wing monstrosity. Only left wingers should have their taxes extracted for it, since it preaches what they want.

    Wait... People actually take time out if their lives to listen to Stephen Nolan? I thought he was employed to avoid dead air.
    Radio 5 Live is the only thing to listen to before you sleep apart from trashy pop channels like Capital.
    It's fine until Nolan gets on.

    Ahh, like the Brits do in Spain, nicely integrating, learning the language and 'assimilating fully into Spanish society'...
    You seem to be under the impression people in Spain have something to do with the UK? Here's a clue: they left. What they do, how they choose to do it, has absolutely nothing to do with the people who choose to remain in this country. You can conflate the actions of non-residents with residents all you like, but they've chosen to leave the UK - they aren't my problem, nor am I responsible for them.

    There biased coverage against Corbyn disproves left wing bias and proves it's right wing bias, at least when it comes to the news.

    So rather than producing any evidence or counterargument to substantiate your claims and oppose my opinion, you insult me by telling me I "need to get out more"?
    Why, I should get out more rather than voicing my opinions on the very clearly biased management of the airwaves for what is meant to be a politically impartial radio station?

    Wow the way you put 'human beings' is what is despicable here.

    Are you LockheedSpooky in disguise?
    Do you have a point or are you just yet another progressive who believes in group rights ahead of individual rights, the erosion of individual liberty, moral relativism and politically correct group think?

    Right wing bias?
    The media is loving Corbyn, following him around and playing up his "landslide victory". Every time I switch on the television I hear the word Corbyn within about 10 seconds.

    Economically, the BBC does lean to the right. Culturally, it doesn't lean, it bathes in left-wing politics. A bit like New Labour (which was BBC pornography).

    Nah, I understand your point, that on some parts the BBC is leftwing when it's supposed to be impartial.

    But seriously, your language makes out as though it's the biggest crime of the 21st century.

    Perhaps because it's the antithesis of every single thing he believes in.

    Video isn't working on my phone, but still.
    Who they are? Humans mate.
    And ideologies that they harbour? That's like saying Spain shouldn't let so many Brits go there to retire because they might be secret fascists who have a hidden agenda against any non Brits.
    completely different. first off brits are westernised so they don't need integration into society. secondly as members of the EU we share information when immigrants travel. spain will know exactly who the brits are who go to spain - criminal records and the like.
    syrian immigrants could easily be ISIS members. ISIS even said they will use this immigration to europe wave to spread terror by sending jihadis here. One was spotted in calais recently. One was spotted in Italy also - and those are the ones we knew about.
    Theres probably 100s in europe already who we have no idea they're terrorists.

    Whether people listen or not, like him or not, believe in his politics or not, doesn't detract from the central point: the BBC has a duty to be impartial in its coverage. This should result in his dismissal.

    The fact you don't know emphasises to me me how little you understand your political position.

    Nicky Campbell has a right wing bias. Why are you not demanding his dismissal?

    So you're basically saying, that if there's a war, we can never accept any refugees from the war zones because of the risk that they might be a terrorist.

    Oh, unless they've been 'Westernised' of course.

    Imo, there are things which are much more 'disgusting' then this. Like your hatred of anyone left leaning or anyone who doesn't hate refugees.
    sassiness on fleek :fyi:
