The Labour ..sorry..Dinner Party

I have just been watching something called The Dinner Party.It brought together everything I have been saying about artistic bankruptcy and political dishonesty of the wretched BBC. Think , whose Afraid of Virginia Wolf done as panto . The Caretaker as interpreted by Little and Large.,...for the level

The host is a loudmouthed and “ Common” ,“Mergers and Acquisitions “ specialist who says such things as “ Don`t give that PC bollocks we all moved here( The Avenue) to get away from the riff raff” in a cod cockney bawl. Those who admit they voted for Labour in 1997 are shouted down buy this ill-mannered pig who proceeds to give us a cartoon characterisation of the selfish brash coarse Thatcher voter beloved of the un-intelligentsia

The “ Nicer” guests suffer his belligerence ruefully .I could not bear to watch the rest of this predictable meretricious garbage as the somnambulist stages of drunkenness and revelation and redemption tediously unravelled .How does such pathetic effluence arrive on our screens at our expense? How can the BBC be allowed to attack the Conservative Party with such ill concealed bile and with such infantile weapons ?

Prior to that,due to the benevolent televisual despotism of Mrs. N, we watched Casualty.It was the episode where as Muslim suicide bomber plot was dropped and replaced with a wet and implausible “ Animal Rights “ Protester. The artistic effect was to watch an ugly dismembering of the integrity of the narrative . The perpetrator arrived on the scene and the tension was between his humanity and the act.We reached the nadir when , confronted with dead bodies he said ," I ve loved animals all my life ....". Problem of scale at all ?
As Melanie Phillips said in” Londonistan” ‘Instead of laying the blame firmly where it belongs with the Islamic ideology, Britain has itself adopted some of the tropes of that very ideology- In particular , hatred of America and Israel .” For Britain read BBC. In order to make the character real they would have had to show him not believing the Islam was responsible for 7.7 and a number of other facts inconsistent with the BBC`s invertebrate lefty credo. That was why they dropped it and the clang was deafening . The BBC`s “Diversity Tsar” wants Muslim women to be allowed to wear the veil on air and they have sanctioned throwing the Bible into the bin for comedy but on no account the Koran( Simon Walters The Mail).Unrepresentative Muslim extremists are given 12 minutes of airtime which would be withheld at gun point from the increasingly popular BNP.Do you recall the 24 hours in which the BBC proclaimed that Britain was a Police state ?


Andrew Marr said of the Beeb ,”It has a liberal bias , not so much a party-political bias .It is better expressed as a cultural bias “. Helen Boaden( recently outed as a serial liar here for misrepresenting Redwood’s Economic Competitiveness review) has also complained Even for her it was too much to suppress a documentary showing black youths bullying white youths as a correctional institution which she saved from the axe . It is pretty obvious that with that sort of pressured the programme was always going to be still born.

Sue Lawley admitted that the BBC is dominated by homosexuals and people from ethnic minorities . For a woman that dropped her Brummy accent and shagged her way to the top this must have been inconvenient .

If you what to see the Soul of the BBC don`t look at its current affairs look with your peripheral vision at the well manured nooks and cranny . The BBC`s website in its entry on the IRA fails to mention the fact they killed people whereas the entry on the UVF counts the numbers and does not neglect the word vicious . So it is clear that if you monitor overt output they will simply make their bias covert. At the moment this is excatly the trick they are playing on us

Now for the first time , political monitoring will extend beyond the News and current affairs to all ... programmes …A content category called “ opinion” will be created to balance points of view about matter s “Public contention” such regulatory oversight is worthy of consideration given that we “Would not start from here “..
Sadly this measure is Autralian and applies to ABC .The BBC can still get away with murder

I thought Casualty was good. I'm glad they have got most of the same actors as when I used to watch it many years ago. I admit I didn't read any political undertones into it. I thought it was a bit unfair that when the soldier found out he was in the same room as the bomber they took the soldier out and not the bomber.

Did you also notice that Charlie is still anti-establishment even though the establishment is the one the BBC like?

Newmania said...

It is a good programme Ed but on this occassion it was a ridiculous plot .

Croydonian said...

Casualty is not something I watch very often, but I recall reading years back about the writers feeling that they were absolutely entitled to monster any character who might be blue(ish), because 'we believe in the NHS'.

Newmania said...

C I should have credited you .The thing aboput Australia came from your blog a while ago

Ed said...

Casualty went guns blazing against the internal market and hospitals investing their own pension pots as they saw fit. Perhaps the writers still find themselves far to the left of the government even now!

What a shame they didn't cover the abolition of the internal market and its re-introduction under a new name via several billion wasted on "change programmes"...

N - you did mate.

The first casualty of 'Casualty' is truth.....

Ah, you see the mistake you made, don't you? It was in watching the tripe in the first place.

Yesterday morning I was out motoring delightedly through the Northumberland countryside, listening to Parky on Radio2. The woman he had on to do the "arts" reviews did the dirty on "Dinner Party", saying it was the most awful tosh. So I gave it a miss.

Thanks to Parky, I no doubt did my blood pressure no end of good. And the music he plays is pretty good, too.

Is the BBC stark raving mad? Has it forgotten that people will always write in if they don't like something anyway? What's the point in presenting an opinion if you always have to balance it out? Rubbish! Just give us something controversial to talk about over dinner and screw balance!

Brilliant I would like to see concerned eyebrows with this line

I thought it was going to be an Abigail`s Party it had ALison Steadman in it ...it was overtly anti Conservative though and I was obliged to stalk from the room in righteous fury .

That in Australia M. I agree I wouldn`t have it buit I do think someone should be monitoring the poltical content of the non News and current affairs output.

I thought it was unoriginal turgid rubbish... clunking, creaky and predictable. The "Thatcherite character" was the worse as he quite obviously couldn't act at all and just looked like he has swallowed a wasp occasionally.

It reminded me a bit of that sketch with the 2 Ronnies and John Cleese about the classes - i.e quite funny then but really dated now..

Newmania said...

It was Mutley. Why are you not on the Telly , I think you would do a great radio show especially

Croydonian said...

Sounds like my decision to watch a DVD of Network was a wise one.

Could be.. could be

The BBC had better watch their backs. A significant proportion of the license paying public are becoming increasingly angry at the Beeb's little games.

Even the oldies on Have Your Say are beginning to notice that HYS comments are not only filtered to largely reflect the BBC luvvies' political views, ut even the voting system is tampered with to down grade non-PC comments.

The BBC's been caught in the act many times now.

res and if i can get through my life without ever getting caught in the act it shows how often they do it
