It’s Anti-Political Correctness Gone Mad!
And now a quote from someone who I am assured is being serious – no, this isn’t a parody.
The BBC is immersed in sickening, and mind-numbing political correctness. Just take a look at BBC1’s mad “idents” – images of happy multicultural people skateboarding or salsa dancing; African drummers (what have these got to do with Britain?); or crowds of “young people” at some dreadful “rave”. This propaganda is just like the Soviet posters of the 1930s, except that it’s all updated for 2004, and centres (not on tractors and industrial workers) but various decadent types “expressing” themselves. All the neurotic self-deceptions of the liberal elite are there, presenting an image of Britain that excludes anyone white, middle-class, non-urban, and traditional in dress and manner (i.e it excludes British people!)
Stuart Millson, writing on the topic of BBC spreads evil PC attitudes
Must have imagined that ident full of white middle class people ballroom dancing then. Or the ballet dancers? What more middle class can you get? Anyway, that’s all there to set the scene for more of Stuart’s words of wisdom…
My first act as Prime Minister would be to close the BBC down for six weeks and completely restructure and restaff it. I’d make sure that we employed a right-wing scriptwriter for the Archers, and BBC 1’s “idents” would be scenes of RAF jets flying over Brussels, or pictures of Prince Charles gardening at Highgrove.
Whilst the thought of him trying to replace 30,000 BBC employees in only six weeks means I would be tempted to vote for him (it would be a good laugh if nothing else), I’m more intrigued by this idea of BBC One programmes being introduced with idolic scenes of old Charlie tending his cabbage patch…
I can see it now…
You’re watching BBC One
<shot of Prince Charles pulling a weed out of the ground>
Coming up in half an hour
<Charles shuffles soil around with a garden fork>
Den’s in trouble and Dot’s got her hands full in EastEnders
<Charles lovingly strokes a petunia>
But first, Super Furry Animals are Top Of The Pops!
<Camila walks past and waves>
You know, it could work…
