After Johnson's shambolic wreath laying at the Cenotaph, where his shirt was hanging out, uncombed hair and loose flying coat, he laid his wreath UPSIDE DOWN. FFS, the bloke is a cretin.
To cover it up, the biased BBC delved their archives to show a more presentable version of his wreath laying, correct way up, albeit 3 years old.
It couldn't have been an accident or mistake..
It was a deliberate act to cover up a monumental gaffe.

BBC uses old video of Boris Johnson at cenotaph instead of clip of wreath gaffe.

I reckon Wolfie, Quill and I will just go to the better forum , leaving you adding your +1's to Dodge's endless anti Corbyn posts. There will soon be more mods than posters.
Boy They will be fun for you.

The entire world knows about the Beebs bias. And it's not towards a conservative train of thought.

Do you have your own Squad? How utterly pathetic for a grown man.

The BBC is pro Remain but anti-Corbyn. They wouldn't badger Labour over whether or not Corbyn would use nukes unless they wanted to give the press more reason to go on the attack - it wasn't an issue for this election at all until yesterday Rolling Eyes

The BBC has a long track record that predates the current state of affairs.

It's not Pravda, but it's not The Sun either.

The Sun is savagely biased in its reporting, though switched to Labout from 97-05. It openly supports a given candidate.

The BBC is not pro-Labour, to suggest it is is a nonsense.

Ironically, the real Corbynites think BBC is pro-Tory. Tories think it's pro-Labour. Probably tells you all you need to know about how neutral the BBC is Wink

I think the Beeb reflects a position that is typical of a tax payer funded entity.

The very first time, as Royal British Legion branch chairman, that I delivered the solemn words of The Exhortation at a war memorial in front of a large audience including the local "great and good" I was so overcome with nervousness that I missed a line out.

The first time I recited the words of the moving Kohima Epitaph I broke down in tears half way through...because my own uncle had died in the "forgotton war" in the Far East.

My new vice chairman, a couple of years ago, stepped forward to lay the wreath before instead of after The Reveille bugle call marking the end of the two minute silence.

No-one ridiculed us; they simply understood that as ordinary ex-servicemen called upon to honour those who died and to do our utmost to show our deep and appropriate respect for the Act of Remembrance, we made innocent and understandable mistakes.

But you, Andy, you insufferable bastard, presume yet again to exploit Johnson's mistake in stepping forward too early just as you have show yourself both eager and desperate to exploit any situation available to you, no matter how tragic, solemn or moving, that makes itself available to you to continue your own, personal and snide little hate campaign against Conservatives.

You are one sick individual. And you fucking well disgust me.

The Sun has traditionally behaved like the Vicar of Bray...declaring its support for whichever side happened to be in the ascendancy at the time. The Daily Mail's editorial policy is support of the Conservative and Unionist party though not, curiously, necessarily a Tory government. The Daily Mirror is a staunch supporter of Labour and Co-operative and The Guardian is traditionally centre-Left and, I believe has yet to revoke its backing for the Liberal Democratic Party in favour of Labour.

None of this matters, of course, because all of them are in effect commercial ventures and as such are entitled to support whichever political party the proprietors and editors choose.

The BBC is entirely different in that its governing Royal Charter is based on the dictum of the first Director General, Lord Reith, that party politically it should be strictly non-partisan. It is also funded by a form of "poll tax" in the form of the annual licence fee, failure to pay which can result in heavy fines or even imprisonment, which in itself demands allegiance to no single political party or belief.

There is little doubt, however that it is pro-Remain and that many, if not most, of its staff are Left-leaning. It is not all that many years ago that Director General Mark Thompson described the organisation as long having "a massive bias to the Left"...his words, not mine.

Just one indication that bias still exists may be evidenced by the way in which most political party policy announcements are covered editorially by the BBC:

Introductory  coverage of Labour Press statements generally comprise the main points followed up by comment and response from the Tories.

In the case of policy statements by the Conservatives, the BBC quite rightly seeks the reaction of the Labour Party...but the intro almost inevitably goes along the lines of "...the Conservative Party has been forced to defend....."

If you don't believe me, just watch BBC coverage of election manifesto matters.

I honestly believe that even if news sources have a 'side' in an election, they should still attempt to report as impartially as possible - but this is rarely the case.

The BBC, for all its flaws (against both sides) is easily the most impartial source of news in the UK, compared to its major rivals Sky, ITV (although they are pretty good) and Channel 4 and infinitely so compared to the papers.

And while the BBC may have a traditional leaning to Centre-Left politics, it absolute does not have any sympathy to Corbynism.

What  I find "pathetic for a grown man"  is an ignorant fat-headed redneck Texan who claims to be a "libertarian" yet obviously still believes that the sun shines out of Trump's arse, denies the existence of climate change, and constantly attempts to blame all of his failures and life's woes on those dreaded "socialists", "wokes" and "liberals"...
