I've just watched John Snow's report from the US. Utter total one-sided
bias against Trump. Staggeringly one-sided.
Now Dispatches are on about the housing shortage. They mention that it's
partly due to the 'massive population increase' but they don't say why
the population has increased.

I sometime wonder if people voted for Brexit because of the BBC stance
on the subject.

I agree. It was completely disgraceful. I don't like Trump, but this was
just ridiculous. However, it is not at all unusual on the mainstream
media.

I found myself automatically disagreeing with the BBC on everything.
Then I stopped watching TV, stopped buying a licence, and I became much
happier.

I no longer watch C4 News due to the bias. Newsreaders have no business
projecting their opinions onto the airwaves.


Odd the way you 'leavers' just love quoting newspapers who support your
views.

IN fact news ins now the odd bare fact plus loads of "opinion" and
"human interest".

It's not really news.

It's not population increase - in the main the physical shortage is due
to household composition (more smaller households) and empty properties.

House prices are another, related, issue.

I also found the bbc program on why the trains are bad lacking in any
details as well. they presented the facts as they saw them, and the fact
that gov and companies blame each other, but then suggested nationalisation
might be a way to go, but never really produced any convincing evidence of
how this was supposed to solve things.To me the obvious answer is to rewrite
the contracts so all the companies colaborate and don't work against each
other might be one way. However I got the distinct oppinion that somebody
had got at the original thrust of what was going to be suggested for some
reason.

Too many half baked tell us what we already know documentaries around, just
to fill schedule space.
Of course the reason for populationgrowth is well known.
Back some years ago our birth rate was falling below the level at which the
tax paying public could support those who were getting pensions and who
needed healthcare with age, so the bright sparks came up with opening up the
doors to immigration as it is well known that in countries with poor
records on infant deaths that they have more babies for at least two
generations . The big snag of course is that this also then means you need
more schools houses and almost everything else, soaking up the money.
Governments never do see or even consider the whole picture when they do
things. They think of their budgets only. It has nothing to do with racial
descrimination or ethnic issues, its to do with idiots in government.
