Quote from: Gwydion on 13 May 2022, 03:41:40 PMI simply explained there had indeed been a tribute paid to the Allied service personnel who together defeated the Nazis in the 9 May speech.
QuoteThe text of the entire turgid and rambling speech, not helped by translation and Russian rhetoric I am sure, is in the public domain and was on many news outlets at the time, including the BBC (Monday, 9 May 2005, 11:22 GMT 12:22 UK ).
QuoteBe all that as it may, what is 'Non-wargaming Discussion/Chat and News" for, if it not for this kind of thing?
QuoteGuys - this feels like the off-topic kind of discussion that can only end badly....
QuoteThe view of the BBC as being centre-left is interesting to me as I find it quite the opposite these days. Their recent main news/politics anchors have been Andrew Neil, Andrew Marr and Laura Kuenssberg, all of whom are former employees or members of the Conservative party. The Director of the BBC is a former Tory councillor and their new Chairman is a Tory donor.
QuoteThat does make one wonder what a non "left-wing" acceptably neutral BBC might look like in terms of management.
