Recently the BBC have been accused of left wing and other bias, as well as that it has always been seen as blatantly pro-EU too. On Tuesday 15th October 2013 it was at it again when it reported on the dire situation in Greece which is creating havoc and much misery for almost all Greeks.
The BBC Radio Four Today lead reporter, John Humphries, was sent on a nice little licence fee funded jolly to Athens to report on the situation there. He opened his report with the comment that Greece had been badly affected by the global economic slump – funny that, I was led to believe the problems in Greece with, as the programme reported, one in three people being out of work and many other workers not being paid, was all the fault of Greece joining the EU’s euro.
Greece cannot set its own interest rates or let its currency float on the worlds money markets, which would help ease its financial problems greatly, it is trapped in the euro and is no longer the master of its own economy, but according to John Humphries report the euro was not even worth mentioning.
He reported how tolerant the Greeks are being over their plight, how youth unemployment is even greater than that of the older generations, how people are working without pay for altruistic reason such as the Greek Broadcasters, but of the euro there was no mention and as far as this report went the EU had virtually nothing to do with this latest Greek tragedy, despite him reporting on Greek tragedies too.
So, as far as the BBC are concerned, the total meltdown of many of Europe’s poorer economies which is now not only creating misery, mass unemployment, bankruptcies the loss of people’s homes and wealth all across the continent has nothing at all to do with the EU and its currency.
Those poor blinkered souls who go around supporting the indefensible European Union project to create a vast European state, of which the euro is one part of, peddle the myth that the EU has prevented wars in Europe since 1945, which is utter claptrap as there have been wars in Europe including a cold war with Russia and Eastern Europe which was eased through the presence of NATO, not the EU. When the next conflict arises in Europe it will be solely the fault of the EU, at some stage the desperation and poverty now being created across Europe will be the single major cause of conflict as the people come to the limit of what they can tolerate.
The EU with its meddling bureaucracy and its unbending economic climate created by its obsession for its vanity currency is creating the perfect scenario for civil wars, riots and the total breakdown of societies all across Europe. But with its head buried in a pile of euros, if asked what the EU has to do with such blight, according to the BBC it has nothing to do with it and all is rosy in the EU.
