    National News Evidence of BBC political bias - either way.

    Agreed, it is a misapprehension - one that probably needs explaining to a few leavers as well.

    International News Trumps parting gestures

    Might have perhaps have pointed that out initially rather than the loaded post! Biden is only doing as others have done, including Bush, Clinton and Obama (without the troop overload hopefully!).

    And the inference here on your part is what exactly? Did you post similar links when the man you supported was in power? For balance, here are reports of Trump authorising missile attacks: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/02/world/middleeast/qassem-soleimani-iraq-iran-attack.html...

    That's a very qualified acknowledgement - 2nd fastest player to 400 wickets after Murali and some years to go. I think all the greats take the bulk of their wickets in their home country in favourable conditions (look at Jimmy). However, having previously defended India's right to produce a...

    I think we all know that Root can bowl, he has a lovely, smooth, repeatable action and gives the ball a tweak. The problem is inevitably the pressure of batting, bowling and captaining the team. Others need to step up now!

    No worries, Jim Davidson is out there ready to lend his support to the Conservative party - racism, homophobia and misogyny to the fore!

    Surely we prepare wickets that will respond to overhead conditions? There aren't many spinners wickets as such in the UK, Taunton perhaps and it's never been the nature of British wickets. Wickets in the sub-continent have spun more, can't see why the complaints now. They have high quality...

    That's what happens though isn't it? Every home team in the world tries to prepare pitches that will suit them, England are no different. Root had no complaints after the 2nd test. I suppose the more relevant discussion is based around the game being able to go 4/5 days - initially you wouldn't...

    I appreciate and understand that but didn't explain myself very clearly. What I meant is are there a constant stream of chancers, usually weeded out by the process, in non-Covid times.

    Don't bother if it's more invective aimed at me and more links from the Murdoch press. I'm giving up on this thread, I'm fed up with counter-factual bigotry.

    Is this a regular occurrence or one exacerbated by the onset of Covid? Would it happen in 'normal' times?

    Christ, you do like to go around in circles and ignore the points being made. QR did ask you to raise what you thought were particular points of bias you have come across on the BBC and critique that. I assume that's a work in progress? In what seems like a previous life, I put up some links...

    Yes, that T10 was in the Emirates wasn't it? Very odd. Local players and a few English county pros, Pakistanis and West Indians. Good luck to them getting paid gigs, particularly in these times, but yes, I've seen higher quality cricket at my own club. In fact one of the West Indians played as a...

    Not surprised at the coverage Steve, don't the BBC have some of the games? As an aside, I was channel hopping on Sunday and caught some of a Pakistan Superleague 20/20 (Islamabad & Multan) - I didn't realise how many Brits were playing there. The featured game included Alex Hales, Phil Salt...

    Not particularly well put, I grant you. WY stated that he thought there was little or no institutional racism in the UK. I linked to a number of articles where people from BAME backgrounds were asked about their work and life experience and begged to differ. WY decried these articles and sources...

    I’m still waiting for your researched articles on the lack of institutional racism in the UK. Oh sorry, all research is biased if it doesn’t reflect your views, silly me! Funny how you think there is something more to it when people disagree with you. I think the word is ‘narcissist‘. I know, I...

    I also have a theory that having had a Tory government for 10 years, there is perception of left-wing bias at the BBC because they are constantly trying to hold a right wing party to account. As they should do being a publicly funded broadcaster. I seem to remember the reverse during the...
