# 320 - WAR - Nigel Lawson banned by the BBC.

Not that he has been officially told but Lord Lawson has learnt that he is not to be included on future debates on climate change on the BBC, despite being something of an expert and Author of 'An appeal to reason', because he is not a scientist.

As he points out in the Daily Mail yesterday then he trusts the BBC will also not interview the Energy Secretary Ed Davey, Ed Miliband, Lord Deben (chairman of the Government's Climate Change Advisory Committee), Lord Stern and others who are also not scientists.

This decision not to talk to Lord Lawson again came after a deluge of complaints from various 'Greens' after he appeared in February in a debate on the BBC with Professor Sir Brian Hoskins about the climate issues around the flooding being experienced.

After initially defending the decision the BBC gave in to the pressure and declared they would not interview Lord Lawson again because "his views are not supported by the evidence from computer modelling."

As Lord Lawson went on to say in the article computer modelling is not 'evidence' but purely conjecture.

The BBC are fully certified members of the new 'Green' religion and their coverage of this important issue is completely bias.

# 319 - WAR - BBC headcount increases since last year.

First let me address the issue that the information I often glean from a daily paper comes from the Daily Mail.

The legacy media are in many respects as bad as each other but the Daily Mail is at least a consistent critic of the BBC and for that they deserve praise. Also just for the record I happen to like the crosswords, Sudoku X, Hidato, Zygolex, 30 second Challenge, World's smallest hardest crossword and not forgetting the Doodle-Do - doing such things, so I'm told, helps keep the brain active and dementia at bay!!

Anyway yesterday they reported that the number of people employed at the BBC had risen despite repeated promises to cut staffing levels. The official figures reveal that 22,039 people work at the corporation an increase of 310 since last year.

Also it has emerged that head hunters were paid £650,000 in 2013 to fill posts across the organisation. This seems a complete waste of money given the poor quality of the BBC's top management!

With a reduced licence fee or preferably no licence fee at all the bloated and bias BBC would have to enter the real world and put its house in order.
