Bullshit BBC

So whaddaya think? Are these people, the writers and directors, so ignorant that they honestly believe this drivel to be true? Or do they hate Britain so much they are willing to shovel any dishonest crap they can get away with down your children’s throats in order to instil the same hatred in them?

Or both.

License fee folks, license fee.

H/T Biased BBC


  1. Lynne says:

    Looks like regular Beeboid bullshit to me. It has sod all to do with the original Horrible Histories books which which made learning history and science a lot of fun for kids.

  2. At least it shows we’ve long been a trading nation.

  3. CountingCats says:


    My thought exactly, but apparently not something they wanted to push.

  4. RAB says:

    Let’s pray these witless bastards were studying Sociology rather than history when they failed to get into the Cambridge Footlights.

    Typical adolescent undergrad stuff. SWP fodder all, just like Jeremy Hardy. You think he’s cuddly and droll on the News Quiz? Check his background.

    One hates to be pedantic, especially with so called humour, but…

    Tea. Yes it comes from India and Sri Lanka, but it originally came from China. The British bought and planted it in our Colonies and others like Kenya too. Without us British, India and Sri Lanka would be a cash crop down.

    And Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837, yes the same year the British Empire abolished Slavery. So what was her fault again?

    Don’t worry. Unless Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, or Jeremy Kyle are in there somewhere no one will give a flying whatsit.

  6. stig says:

    I for one look forward to a BBC horrible history on, oooh, say… off the top of my head… erm… Islam? Socialist creative accountancy? The death marches of Communism? Che’s murderous past? The fallacies and lies of AGW?

    No, I didn’t think so, either.

    “Tea. Yes it comes from India and Sri Lanka, but it originally came from China. The British bought and planted it in our Colonies”

    Well, technically, the British fenced stolen tea bushes — but that was probably an improvement over forcing the Chinese to trade tea for British-produced opium.

    It would be sort of nice if the BBC’s metrosexuals got so embarrassed at their own history that they shut down and sent the public its money back. Least those folks at the Beeb could do, given all they have to feel guilty about.
