us first look at our once universally much admired national
institution, the British Broadcasting Corporation. The last three
decades have seen its reputation diminished by the actions of its own
employees as a majority of them sought to use its monopoly power and
assured revenues for social engineering and the advancement of
socialism, equality, diversity, multinationalism, full membership of the
European Union, and the march of ugly, expensive and uneconomic wind
turbines across our green and pleasant land.
It has been increasingly accused of being as dishonest in matters of truth (formal description of Anthropogenic Global Warning freaks as “scientific experts”), corrupt in intellect (paid by the EU to present its unbalanced news and biased opinion), distorted in vision (its corporate view of President Obama’s socialism as sustainable), inefficient in operation (Newsnight’s paedophilia charges broadcast unchecked), grossly overstaffed (monstrously burdened with sclerotic layers of mismanagement), and conspiritorily egocentric in rewards (such as the reported £354,000 salary for a Head of News).
watchers cannot resist a smile. The sensitivity of defence matters is
used successfully to protect the MoD from public scrutiny, and with no
knowledge of its internal workings the electorate can neither understand
nor have grounds to criticise its abysmal operational and financial
performance, but the BBC has now provided a frame of reference that
facilitates informed criticism.
The MoD is dishonest in matters of truth (the defeat in Basra represented as a success), corrupt in intellect (believing almost everything promised by BAE Systems), distorted in vision (the Strategic Defence & Security Review [SDSR] divorced from reality), inefficient in operation (£4,500,000,000 wasted on unconvertible Nimrods), grossly overstaffed (forty times the number of procurement personnel used by Israel for the Israelis’ much larger punch), and conspiritorily egocentric
in rewards (such as the absurd £168,000 bonus for the clerk who oversaw
the excavation of what the Defence Secretary claimed was an
embarrassing “black hole” of £37.5 billion, and who recently
masterminded the financial disaster of the Typhoon).
