# 180 - WAR - 'Austerity'

At 0815 on Radio 4 Today's programme they interviewed an American Paul Krugman following his withering attack on the British government's economic policy.

When will the bias BBC interview somebody who advocates that austerity is in fact the only answer as I believe it is?

For example As Merryn Somerset Webb, Editor of Money Week, says this week :-

"There are 4 paths out of a financial crisis - rapid economic growth, massive default, high inflation (which increases nominal GDP and causes automatic deleveraging) and there is austerity.

The most common of which are infaltion and austerity with growth the least common. There is only one historical example of successful growth and that is the USA 1938 to 1943 and that didn't come from the best of sources.

So for those wondering how all this ends, history has given you something of a hint. You can't grow your way out of a financial crisis. You have to work your way out of it with austerity, inflation or a combination of both. Expect the later"

The BBC is bias in its coverage of our current economic problems favouring those who are against the cuts and austerity.

# 179 - WAR - 'Savage cuts!'

As Stephen Glover's headline in Saturday Mail's main article stated :-

" It's the daily mantra of the BBC: 'savage cuts' are bleeding Britain to death. In fact this is the great lie of our age - public spending is HIGHER than under Labour."

The BBC constantly allows Ed Milliband and Ed Balls to get away with their repeated mantra 'that the Tories are cutting to too fast and too far' and yet even basic analysis shows that the Coalition has cut very little and OVERALL government expenditure has gone up.

The bias BBC gave up reporting the real news along time ago and just panders to the left wing Establishment.

# 178 - WAR - BBC 2 - The Great Euro Crisis.

I watched the BBC2 show last night presented by Michael Portillo, the supposed Eurosceptic, and noticed that the BBC had clearly clipped his wings as the programme came out clearly for the Euro with no serious analysis that as a political project the 'Euro Elite' may wish it to work but it has NO chance.

The REAL choice is between a lot of pain now as the PIIGS are asked to leave the Euro and a great deal more pain if the Eurocrats keep trying to stick plasters over the cracks.

History teaches us that no central currency can EVER work without political union and it is clear the people of Europe won't allow that to happen without a big fight.

Things are going to get nasty before they get better - but don't expect the bias BBC to report such things.

# 177 - WAR - BBC - show bias in London Mayrol election coverage.

Below exract is taken from :-

Current polls for the London Mayoral elections are quite revealing. The major parties – Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems are naturally standing candidates – as well as The Green Party, UKIP, BNP and a number of independents and small parties.
Firstly, bear in mind that by current polling figures, UKIP is expected to poll around 3% of the vote - around exactly that of the Greens.
So you’d expect that the BBC would be giving coverage to these parties more or less equally, right? I did some snuffling around using Google and found the following facts.
However it is entirely in keeping with the BBC's Guardian view point that they would give more coverage to the 'socialist' Green Party over the 'rightwing' UKIP.
