    The BBC has received vast sums of funding from various institutions of the European Union (according to Ashley Mote MEP - who may not be the most reliable source). If this is the case, it's in direct breach of the provisions of their Royal Charter, which makes each of the directors of the BBC guilty of the crime of 'Treason Against the Absolute Authority of the British Crown' (Treason Act - 1351). It also makes every single license-payer guilty of the crime of 'Providing Aid or Comfort to Traitors of the Absolute Authority of the British Crown' (Treason and Felony Act 1848). This was submitted for investigation to Scotland Yard, though they opted not to investigate.

    The BBC, in my view, is strongly unionist and I would be somewhat suspicious of any EU funding. The BBC also appear somewhat reluctant to cover anything which isn't the view of the 'rightful establishment' - a great example of which was the civil unrest in Sri Lanka. The BBC appeared totally reluctant to cover the Tamil side of events - they sent a reporter with the Sri Lankan army - how can that possibly be 'unbias'? Al Jazeera on the other hand, practically screams 'we are bias - deal with it' and yet, their reporters were independent and did not 'tag along' with one civil group!

    You'll note that I haven't, though...
    No, but then again Biased BBC isn't 'mental' or 'ramblings', given that the contributors regularly appear on the BBC, and junior BBC journalists regularly post on the site, and the site is frequently referenced in the telegraphs blogs and other such places. Now I'm willing to concede I don't agree with everything on the blog, but when does one? There are several contributor's, and as an antidote to some of **** you here on the BBC it's really rather good.

    We all know the BBC stopped having any kind of impartiality many, many years ago.

    The only ramblings are your own censorious lefty liberal views.

    Time Tourist - surely, a 'lefty liberal' would be opposed to the BBC full stop, due to the state intervention in the private-life? Or at least, that's what I'd have thought...

    Also - the Torigraph cites David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Nick Griffin... I wouldn't consider any of them credible sources :p:

    Why would they, the BBC is a left liberal organization. And how do you mean 'state intervention in the private life'?

    No, I said it was regularly cited on the telegraph blogs; as many of the journalists on the blog concur with viewpoints expressed by the B-BBC blog.

    I'm pretty sure you're actually a socialist trying to ruin the libertarians credibility, or at least I hope so. I don't want to support the same party as you. :sad:
    What?! How can the fact that I oppose people being forced by their government to pay for something that a government should have nothing to do with make me a socialist?

    A libertarian believes the government is for making laws and upholding them, nothing else. A socialist believes the opposite.

    Where do I fit in then? Please don't support the Libs if you think that I of all people am a socialist, we could do without you.

    I understand that your views being expressed are libertarian. I do know the difference between a socialist and a liberal.

    What I'm trying to say is that you argue libertarian points so badly, that I think you're SECRETLY a socialist who has made this account to make libertarians look bad. It's like you're the stereotype of the most annoying type of libertarian there is.

    No wonder, the claims are completely preposterous.

    You use an act written in 1351, which includes the line "violated the King's companion, the King's eldest daughter if she was unmarried or the wife of the King's eldest son and heir;", as evidence yet said act does not apply at all to your point.

    The British Crown does not have absolute authority. The British Crown is a pointless, powerless institution which serves as a permanent and depressing reminder of our undemocratic past.
