Anyone else notice how the BBC packed the audience out with EU-flag
waving quislings/placemen/stooges, just like they do extreme Lefties
in Question Time?
Having attended this event and having got to the venue quite early there
were around 4 or so people outside giving EU flags and leaflets away!
There was No one there giving flags out other then those people
certainly no one from the BBC!, in fact i do not recall seeing anyone
with a BBC badge or pass on, there were a few tech staff up in a
partitioned off section of the Gallery at the top and there was a
partitioned off OB van section outside. This was an OB event and that
work is done by other contractors no vans around with the BBC written on
I had a chat with one of the Pro EU people giving the flags away they
were in general getting a warmish welcome for being there. No one that i

So to state that the BBC "orchestrated" this is poppycock, it really is

When some years ago I attended a recording of 'Question Time' it was
significant how many 'questions' came from people with London accents.
The the point where Dimbledum actually asked whether one questioner was
local. She wasnt.
After the recording had ended, a whole group got into a minibus with
London plates on and drive off.
How it works is that the beeb has its own activists who pass the word
along to other well funded activists, who then flood the cameras and
monopolise events with pre prepared marketing collateral - flags hats
and T shirts and so on - in order to give a vastly different view of
what is going on, to the national audience.
All the Beeb then has to do is for its left leaning camera monkeys to
focus on that group rather than anyone else...
The Remoaner/Left is well funded, well organised and a very visible and
vocal but very small minority. Carefully presented to make itself look
much large than it is, to capture the narrative and drive the political
Come referendum time they couldn't believe they were actually a small
minority, and they still don't

In the audience that i saw there were quite a few Asian people and being
based up in the gallery area they were really enjoying themselves
perhaps enjoying the fact that here in the UK we do still have more
freedoms than some other states and places!
I had a Brazilian lady friend with me who was very surprised that the UK
public could enjoy themselves and weren't so inhibited as she though
they were! Great event yes!, bit Jingoistic fantastic atmosphere and
bloody loud when the old Organ is flat out and the audience with
As usual what happens at an event, and how it is portrayed in the media
are two very different things.
There is nothing a fleet of dispatchable nuclear power plants cannot do
that cannot be done worse and more expensively and with higher carbon
emissions and more adverse environmental impact by adding intermittent
