BBC Controller Lectures On The Selection Of Audiences!
In my naivety I used to think that Question Time on TV and Any Questions on R4 would reflect, in its audiences, the character and nature of the area from which it was broadcast. That was many years ago. I gained access to a Hereford programme only by pretending to be a raving leftie and it worked. Then last Autumn I learnt, fortuitously, that the radio programme was coming to Ludlow. Sure enough, the effort to gain a place was fraught with difficulty. Not least when I learnt of the significant number of places required to be reserved for The BBC. So I and a good many other people placed our names on a standby list. I learnt on Sunday from friends who did gain a place that in the region of 40 seats were not occupied. I bet in Labour areas they are always full. It would appear that the growing desire to take on Labour representatives is not to be encouraged. I don't give a toss what weasel excuses the Brown Pravda Champagne Dimbleby Dynasty might choose to come up with, it stinks of the endemic control The State and it's elite Mandarin culture wish to exert. Freedom, not a chance. Thought control and manipulation. Scary stuff. In the light of the destruction and havoc wrought on us by Labour, it seems trivial. It is not, it is part of the treachery we are forced to pay for.

Anyone care to suggest what they might be chanting?
