Posted by StrangelyComments Off on Tony Benn in Bing Top 3 – BBC Hide Tony Benn Funeral
Bing Search Shows True Popularity of Tony Benn
I’ve seen the Bing search engine promote Tony Benn’s funeral to the top 3 searches, while the BBC coverage almost hide’s the funeral! For god’s sake, people cheered and applauded with gratitude in the streets as the coffin went past! There was NO jeering.
Many people on social media have commented that the Tory government is manipulating the news output through changing the hire & fire of those that run the corporation to tory supporters and lobby groups. This is readily apparent today, when comparing the BBC output for the funeral of a revered MP, Tony Benn, to that of Thatcher, the former leader, loathed and derided my millions. See Mike, for instance.
Benn, top 3 on Bing!
Many on Facebook and Twitter have pointed out this difference. So I checked an alternate stream…. the load page of Bing (Microsoft’s search engine). That’s it here.
You will see that the top 3 web searches are (were):
Ukraine IMF Bailout
Tony Benn Funeral
Obama meets Pope
BBC Hide, BBC Change?
BBC Shove It
I was hoping to get some screenshots of the search results, but since I started typing, the results are now driving the BBC up the rankings! (Initially, the BBC was not to be seen!)
I can only assume that this is due to some BBC editorial decisions following on from a myriad of postings onto the BBC FB and Twitter pages of photo memes and comments like this one.
Here’s Benn’s summarised. Follow the links through. Thick crowds, not the thin cold lines at Thatchers, all guarded and marshalled by thousands of police.
You have to ask, why such a difference? The answer is obvious, but you won’t find the BBC expanding on it. Only latterly has this belated report come out, now snuggled down and buried under the 2 year fudge of an enquiry into energy business prices. It says,
A large crowd holding trade union and anti-war banners lined the route of his funeral cortege.
There were tears and sustained applause as the procession arrived at St Margaret’s Church, yards from the House of Commons.
So why the subterfuge? Matt Cole in small print says,
You could tell Tony Benn’s coffin had arrived at St Margaret’s before you could see it – because loud spontaneous applause broke out.
Yeah right. Too late Matt. Just too damned late. You should have less fear. They cannot hurt you by speaking the truth out loud right from the off. Now’s the time to take a hold of the BBC and make it what it should be – after all – we all pay for it.

Lynch Mob Witch-hunt in Britain
The lowest common denominator mentality is alive and well in Glorious Britain. “Most people” (according to a man-in-the-street soundbite on the BBC News yesterday, so it must be true) now think benefit scroungers are the ruin of the nation and treated like dogs. Truly – the news article used this man to justify the April 1st cuts.
Also, at the last count, over 58,000 would be quite happy for the couple in this screenshot to be strung up, bashed to death in prison, hung drawn and quartered, dumped in the streets of Derby – you get the idea.
Deeply Disturbing Doubts
But this looks really bad to me.
Q. Oh! How so? You saw the telly last night, didn’t you?
Well actually, that’s part of the point.
How is it that just a few hours after the three convictions for parents Mick and Mairead Philpott, and their friend Paul Mosley, how is it that three main TV channels are running in-depth full length investigations into the three and the deaths?
How is it they all have recorded interviews with witnesses and others that knew the threesome?
How is it that the police, weeks ago, released secretly recorded audio of the threesome while the trial was in progress?
How is it that the Daily Mail ties the child deaths and lifestyles of the threesome to the benefit scrounging ethos of the recently introduced welfare cuts?
I’ve Seen It All Before
The media hysteria and manipulation of facts we’ve all seen before. How do the 58k Facebook lynch mob so easily forget this?
Daily Mail Headline Change After Vile Benefits Murder Comments Backlash
Like the cowards that the Daily Mail is, it punches up nasty headlines to get the sales, gets a backlash, then can’t stand by its own words – so changes them. Here’s how:
Initial Headline and URL
DM Initial Welfare Headline
The URL for this page is https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2303120/Mick-Philpott-vile-product-Welfare-UK-Derby-man-bred-17-babies-milk-benefits-GUILTY-killing-six.html- but just try clicking it!
You’ll find that you are redirected to a wholly different page, similarly designed but with a different headline. Click Here to try. The original page that you should go to is on the right.
Redirected page with New Headline
DM Redirected Welfare Headline
If you clicked the link you’ll be taken here, https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2303120/Mick-Philpott-Judge-hears-good-father-awaits-sentencing-killing-SIX-children-house-blaze.html which looks like this image on the left.
But let’s thank goodness that Facebook wasn’t around in 2002 so that dishy doll psychos like Michelle Keegan couldn’t spill their vile venom under the disguise of public comment. She now has a more recent one saying “This cunt needs hanging share if you agree”
Obviously. I’m a Buddhist.
Also obviously, the man as presented and as I see him, and the others likewise, are the pits. But this does not deserve a witch hunt with thousands up and down the country baying for their private parts to be burnt in oil. Those doing so should better beware.
Faulty Convictions Abound
Because British justice has a long running habit of throwing curved balls. For the last few decades we’ve seen a continuous stream of high profile murders and atrocities, where;
Philpott et al certainly appear as scum, guilty of the deaths of their children.
But give it time. The spotlight glare into which the case has been placed coupled to the hysterical benefit-loaded media commentary give good grounds for a flawed judicial process.
At the time of Timothy Evans conviction, a similar media frenzy was in place.
Similarly for the Birmingham Pub (not) Bombers
and Judith Ward the M62 (not) bomber
All of these (and more) have had long drawn out media frenzies where the hang ’em and flog ’em brigade appeared, just as now, like a syphilis from the sewers of unclean thoughts. They should be better than that, better than a killer.
Folks should learn from history. Getting hot and bothered now will not resurrect the dead children.
