It’s obvious that whatever controls are supposed to be in place to ensure the BBC is ‘impartial’ – admittedly difficult to define, but you know when you’re not seeing it – are not working.

    We are nearing an age most notable by the so-called progressives using any means necessary to end discussion on issues they deem important.
    It is also something that could be called a “dark age”
