Quick heads up for a couple of programmes on State Radio tomorrow...

Also...

I think I've made this point with you before, but surely it makes sense to keep abreast of what particular agenda the Establishment happen to be pushing (via State Controlled Media)... as long as you recognise it for the propaganda that it actually is.

They chose an avant-garde, school art project approach to not telling the story, just a lot of semi-related archive clips with zero narrative. I don't imagine many people made it to the end, but if so I'm sure they learned nothing either.

Agreed. Wasn't very good.

And my other tip off about Help to Sell on Moneybox was quietly and conveniently dropped from the programme!

 

(Unless it was such a brief mention that I missed it)

The BBC doesn't support corbyn, it supports the establishment and the status quo.

+1 ..as usual 🙂

the power of councils and charges of bankruuptcy administrators this was disturbing in this R4 prog today 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bksgnc

Debt Killed My Dad

In August, Jessica Hurst wrote to the media asking them to investigate how her dad’s debts of just under £12,000 became a bill of just under £73,000. Nigel Hurst killed himself a year ago after learning that bailiffs were to repossess his family home. It was the bailiff who found him.

Student, Jessica, was left with a pile of debt recovery letters and bank statements which she hoped would hold the clue to his financial troubles. File on 4 reporter Helen Grady takes up Jessica’s challenge.

Her findings include the fact that councils are increasingly enforcing council tax debts, often using aggressive tactics which have been outlawed or become outdated in the private sector. And that bankruptcy can trigger a series of punitive charges - including some paid directly to the Government - which can make a manageable debt unmanageable.

 You say not quite but that's exactly what/who I was referring to!

'Establishment' is too tin foil hatted for me - shadowy people, levers of control etc etc.

Inreality it is what it is - a 'sink' of dummies, protected from any form of accountability or competition by a 'Pay the license or go to jail' system.
