@19Averil @ChrisLillington @Eddystone506 @trumpy675 @BBCPM Coming from a country that has no equivalent, all I can say is that a bad BBC is better than no BBC. And even in their worst day, they still have In Our Time, David Attenborough, etc etcCarlos Machado @AmianoMarcelino • 16 Feb 21:37 GMT
@HowardWilde @Eddystone506 @BBCPM Everybody got it wrong. People keep quoting BBC News & BBCQT as being bias, but there were hundreds of hours of programming that did their best to examine all the implications of Brexit.They are not a Boris puppet or why would he want to destroy them? Go after the real enemies!Bill Hayes #backintoEurope @billhayes1949 • 16 Feb 20:15 GMT
@HowardWilde @Eddystone506 @BBCPM But Boris wants to destroy the BBC because of their Brexit Bias. Was he a secret remainer or what??? Brexit was a monumental shake up of British politics, everybody, incl BBC got it wrong. What a desolate country we shall be with Murdoch, Netflix & no BBC. Think about that!!Bill Hayes #backintoEurope @billhayes1949 • 16 Feb 19:58 GMT
@Eddystone506 @BBCPM No. Encourage them to do it at the BBC where the majority of the country still watch their news. If we let the Tories rape the BBC like they have our schools, NHS, libraries, police, etc, they'll have free reign to carry out their crimes with far less public awareness & scrutiny.Harry Earthling 🌍🇪🇺 #StopBrexitSaveBritain @HarryEarthling • 16 Feb 18:37 GMT
@thesecretdooruk @FarleyDavenport @Eddystone506 @BBCPM No. We have nothing quite like Fox. There are issues with certain programmes like Question Time and perhpas the Today radio prog ramme but Newsnight is usually smack on.martynday @martynday • 16 Feb 16:22 GMT
@Eddystone506 @BBCPM Exactly what the government and its backers want. The BBC is one of few news organisations not owned by billionaire tax avoiders. It isn’t perfect, has been badly led recently, but it is worth saving and could be improved with better leadership. Careful what you wish for.David Merritt @butwhatifitsall • 16 Feb 15:32 GMT
James Mitchinson @JayMitchinson editor of @yorkshirepost tells #BBCPM in the strongest terms that @BorisJohnson must declare the Yorkshire floods - with more forecast tonight in #StormDennis - a national emergency. https://t.co/Geszas8hdwsusannah tarbush @starbie99 • 15 Feb 17:14 GMT
Brexit was always intended to bring in top-down authoritarian government at home.
@jonnnybest @jennirsl @EvanHD @BBCPM No—that distinction is scrupulously maintained. It’s just that it’s important isn’t confused by switching between your different verbs. The point is that appealing to that distinction doesn’t do what you need it to—and I don’t see you say anything to meet that challenge.Stephen Everson @s_everson • 15 Feb 12:26 GMT
@jonnnybest @jennirsl @EvanHD @BBCPM And the tweets didn’t need to be *targeted* at any particular people or group of people for that to be relevant to judgements about the ethics of tweeting them. And that was what @EvanHD’s interview was exploring.Stephen Everson @s_everson • 15 Feb 02:26 GMT
@jonnnybest @jennirsl @EvanHD @BBCPM I wonder how much work is being done by ‘targeting’ there. If you replaced your ‘targeting’ with ‘ridiculing’, which would present the distinction between ideas and people more carefully, would you still hold to that claim?Stephen Everson @s_everson • 15 Feb 01:45 GMT
@WilliamBBarnes @EvanHD @ruthhirstaswas @jonnnybest @BBCPM Agree entirely William - This tweet nails it. @EvanHD lacked the wit to understand this issue (or did so deliberately So is maybe another wokeyblokey)Al @al_alowl • 14 Feb 23:50 GMT
@eddwilson @pollytoynbee @BBCPM Quite so. I refer to neither left or right political positions but to people who offer simply their *personal* view.
Furthermore, why do so called ‘celebrities’ feel that they are better informed and more in touch than ‘ordinary’ people?
Johnson appeared liberal to win a liberal city...he’ll appear whatever he thinks will get him elected #bbcpmBob Hawkins @salvatorRosa • 14 Feb 17:43 GMT
If people close to the prime minister don't know what he wants to do, could that be because he hasn't the faintest idea either?
He just wants SOMETHING!
Those "levelling up" announcements involve centrally directed changes to what local authorities and bus companies do (with questionable resource).
Translating them into something like reality is somebody else's job.
It isn't allowing councils to regulate fully.
@BBCPM Did Evan just over rule the judge and declare the man guilty? An interview that might as well have been scripted by trans activists.LeoJones @treflesg • 14 Feb 17:19 GMT
Useless Eustace elevated.
@MrsVB @bevclack #bbcpm He has been used by Johnson on the media but I don't anyone has been impressed and only political geeks have noticed him. He took part in leader debates where Johnson did not show. He appeared on #r4today and was laughed at by University Students.Random Jottings of Gildersleeve @gildy61 • 13 Feb 17:37 GMT

@EvanHD @BBCPM Total genius interviewing over climate change. Force both sides of the argument to confront the inconvenient consequences of their position about which they refuse to think. You cannot simply say “I don’t want to start from here”.Jeremy Leggett MBE @J_Leggett • 12 Feb 17:57 GMT
I’m not alone @BBCR4Feedback in finding the coverage & analysis of the US primaries vastly over excessive on @BBCWorldatOne @BBCPM & @BBCr4today to the detriment of almost all over world news,of course the results should be covered...but in the headlines @BBCRadio4Bob Hawkins @salvatorRosa • 12 Feb 08:14 GMT

@BBCPM I was very disturbed you described a texting HGV Driver, also on the phone, as responsible for AN ACCIDENT when he killed 2 innocents.
This was a Crash or Collision - no way Accidental. The word ACCIDENT comforts the man in the Dock & MINIMIZES the Tragedy.
