Scottish BBC HQ is occupied by Gaza protestors

Hundreds of demonstrators human rights groups and the Stop the War Coalition occupied the BBC's Scottish HQ yesterday at Glasgow's Pacific Quay.

Keith Boyd, from the Stop the War Coalition, said they demanded ;

1.The DEC Gaza humanitarian relief appeal to be broadcast on the BBC.
2. The director(s) who made the decision not to show it to resign.
3. The BBC to show news coverage of the protest to show the depth of feeling their decision has provoked."

By last night the BBC said they received "approximately" 1,000 phone complaints and 10,000 by e-mail on the issue.

Douglas Alexander, the International Development Secretary, and Alex Salmond, the First Minister, said the BBC should reconsider their decision.

Director General of the BBC Mark Thompson (AKA Mr Jane Blumberg), evidently under instruction from the Metropolitan Zionist / Israeli cabal , made it clear he did not intend to back down. He maintains the polite but absurd fiction that broadcasting the appeal might endanger the BBC's impartiality on the ground in the Middle East. The BBC also claim there was no guarantee that all the money raised would reach those in genuine need.

Sir Michael Lyons, the chairman of the BBC Trust since May 2007 has written to DG Mark Thompson, defending Mr Thompson's right not to broadcast the appeal.

Sir David Agius, married to Katherine (born 1949), daughter of Edmund de Rothschild is also a Director of the BBC Trustees.

Apparently the appeal will go ahed. Due to a misunderstanding on the news desk they were under the impression that it was an appeal for Gazza. Sometime footballing wizard and legendary non muslim drinker.

As John Motson was not available to sort it out (Dead) , it has only just become apparent that the appeal relates to the popular sandy Mediterranean seaside resort of Gaza.

Regrettably, well known holiday guide 5 Bellies orange skinned Judith Chalmers will not be presenting the appeal as she looks too much like a Jaffa cake (orange shurely ? Ed.)

Please make your cheques payable to " WTC 7 has just fallen down account c/o Gypsy Petulengro, BBC London."


The appeal will follow hastily prepared films " 17 Popular fallacies about Phosphorous bombs in modern warfare/ Blitzkreig / ethnic cleansing " - also "Burning babies the Kosher Kook Book way" introduced by President Karimov.

Gordon Brown has been struck dumb.

"BBC Director General, Mark Thompson, undermined by his own staff."

"A big story in the UK at the moment is that the BBC has refused to broadcast an appeal in response to the ongoing humanitarian situation in Gaza. The BBC argues that if they broadcast the appeal it will lead to accusations of bias."

"What’s been really interesting is the way that journalists in the BBC have subtly showed their distaste for managements decision which has left the Director General of the BBC, Mark Thompson, isolated."

"When Mark Thompson appeared on BBC breakfast this morning, a cut out of the appeal was cheekily beamed onto a screen at the same time that he was arguing why the BBC wouldn’t show the appeal! It was a beautiful moment."...
