There is much speculation at the moment as to when and how
the ‘mistake’ was made when the BBC showed
in a press conference the Queen ‘going off in huff’, and whether or not it was a deliberate attempt to undermine the Queen..
A scene of the monarch walking out of a photocall, which the
BBC described as ‘a huff’, was in fact, the
Queen walking in at the beginning of
the session with photographer Annie Leibovitz.
The Controller of BBC1 has
insisted lessons will be learnt from the storm caused by erroneous footage, but
it has now emerged that the corporation was alerted to the error the day before
admitting it in public.
The BBC admits it was alerted at around 7pm on Wednesday – the day the footage was aired to
journalists – that it had made a mistake, and Mr Fincham was immediately told.
But the clips were still being shown on BBC
news bulletins after 7pm and the
corporation did not apologise publicly to the Queen until around noon on Thursday for the misleading scenes.
By then, stories about the monarch storming off in a strop
had already gone around the world.
Whether the footage had been made internally or externally
(the BBC is not saying which), it would
still have had to go through a rigorous quality checking process, including a
legal check before either going to air or being presented to journalists, that
process must have ticked all the boxes and approved this release. .
Given the history of the BBC
over the past 10 years, its clear left wing bias and being the pseudo
mouthpiece for Government policy, in my view it was a deliberate attempt by
someone within the BBC to discredit Her
Majesty as part of the wider agenda of separation that is currently going on
between Government and Crown.
NuLab takes the view that once the European constitution Treaty has been ratified by parliament, for which the people are being denied a plebiscite, and
the UK loses
its sovereignty to Brussels, then
the Queen is no longer a national requirement.
It is for the BBC to
discover exactly who, but at the end of the day someone’s head must roll for
this, because if this is propaganda, it is totally unacceptable.
Now finally, is the BBC planning
a hatchet job on our armed forces, and what are they doing by encouraging other
crown servants to commit criminal breaches of the law by speaking to the
press without appropriate permission.
Note: this line has been added since the BBC
post originated this morning.

Armed Forces may wish to seek the advice of their commanding officer before
UPDATE: Well, this view seems to be fully backed up by the former BBC Producer Anthony Jay. A well written piece in today's Telegraph (3 pages) with a huge insight into the Media Liberal thought processes of not just the BBC, but the MSM in general.
