    That was a typical abusive, loudmouth, right wing rant if I ever heard one... Have the guts to admit what you really are or keep your comments to yourself. Fyi, you spout exactly the same drivel most of the right wing commenters do on the bbc site... Some are actually hilarious to read were as other are just down right disturbing in there delusional views.

    My IQ is comfortably in to three digits thank you very much. Also for your information I'm not a "lefty" either, I just prefer to be more subjective in my views as apposed to reactionary... You don't actually need to know anything to be reactionary, were as a subjective view requires a little more thought. Nice Twain quote btw, I think you were aiming for depth with that one but ended up missing the mark.

    Everyone I know on the left thinks the BBC has a right-wing bias. Everyone I know on the right thinks it has a left-wing bias. That, to me, suggests it's probably just doing its job. Getting attacked from both sides? Then you're probably walking down the middle road. It's not a perfect organisation by any stretch of the imagination, but I do trust it more than most news outlets.

    LOL Facebook and most of the others are for the uniformed peasants to gather up much propaganda from instead of informative news and instead the OP-ED rubbish of the left in the main stream media and press of record .

    All above and more have been hijacked by the Saul Alinsky book "Rules for Radicals " teachings and elite globalists tools just like K-12 to PhD education today while CNN etc,etc. the mainstream media and press of record et,al. is abdicating any sound journalism principals and choice of news coverage that matters to Wikileaks and others .

    As History has proven since ancient times and that also been the fate of any democracy , as a compromise for big centralized government largesee to the body politic

    Today's greens and the liberal voting fool body politic and the rinos will steal our freedoms and steal us blind for the globalist elites & corporate globalists and a feudal society they will have us endure as we have been poorly educated and brainwashed by our declining secular culture for decades to allow this if they remain in control. just like the alt -right neocons and thier schemes but they wont brainwash me or steal from me

    We are governed by malfeasance pre occupied elected criminals writ large and divided political factions

    Setting Trump aside only because he can't be bought beyond a necessarily political compromise given the GOP majority cant govern:

    These malfeasance pre occupied elected criminals today are not great principled leaders like Reagan & those GOP's, the UK's Margaret Thatcher & UK conservatives or great leaders like Israeli Benjamin Netanyahu , our JFK democrats who were the loyal opposition and at least with JFK and Harry Truman great post war democratic leaders like GOP Eisenhower and the above .

    Twitter can be OK or rubbish but never a primary news feed it has many bias users and news feeds pretending as fair and balanced and the rest , it is what it is but given the state of education today that no longer allows a good argument without an informed body politic we are going to have a feudal society not a representative republic and the USC as we know it that we don't use so well today .

    The lemmings and the mislead greens that vote in the fools that govern us ,both parties are assuring that we will lose our freedoms and free markets and our innovation because of that unless they quit believing the propaganda of the Saul Alinsky "Rules for Radicals " left from mindless demigauges like CNN OP ED TV , the Washington Compost rag and NYT and the alphabet network propaganda tools keeping the folks uninformed.
    Likewise for the alt-right fools and those deceptions.

    Those are all political beating tools and corporate globalist propaganda tools for left ,they have been keeping the liberals uniformed just like the Facebook tools and Hollywood fools and the silly con valley robber barons now and given a chance the right will steal us blind as well and corrupt science has now become a source for centralized government policy and funding today,

    Look no further than our own presidient Eisenhours predictive farewell speach in 1960 when he speaks of undue influance factions and corrupt science for centralizd government funding .

    Historty is everything and they do not teach it today ,ask yourself self why is that ?
