Will The BBC Trust Fix It

Guest post by Ben Fellows

Will the BBC Trust fix it?

Or are they just a sick cabal
of institutional profiteers

The BBC Trust are to investigate how the BBC, its management and structures led to one of the country’s worst cases of institutional paedophilia within the BBC; which spanned decades and continues to this day.

BBC Trust fat cat, sorry I mean Chairman Lord Patten, told BBC staff when he took up his post in May 2011 that there has been “no golden age of governance”. In light of his remarks, one can only assume that the “Golden Age” is not starting anytime soon or at least not under his watch. So, in true children’s BBC tradition, “lets go through the round window” and take a closer look at the BBC Trust and see how exactly they represent us – the licence fee payer.

The BBC Trust was established at the time of the last Charter renewal in 2007.
On the BBC website the Trust states :

Our job is to get the best out of the BBC for licence fee payers. We set the strategic direction of the BBC. We hold the Executive to account for its performance of its functions, and for its compliance with the law, with regulatory requirements, and with the policies, guidelines and codes that we set. We are supported by the Trust Unit, a team of professional BBC staff who report directly to us and who are operationally independent from the rest of the BBC

In other words the BBC Trust is responsible for employing my old frenemy, former Director General Mark Thompson who oversaw the Newsnight fiasco. So I believe it’s unlikely that they will find themselves at fault for hiring the wrong man – or was he? Maybe Thompson was the right man for the job as he’s given himself plausible deniability for his staff’s actions; which gives the board a buffer zone of protection. The BBC Trust members are made up of people from privileged backgrounds. They have conflict of interests galore and are members of a globalist oligarchy.

.

How are the BBC Trustees appointed?

BBC Trustees are appointed by the Queen on advice from DCMS (Department for Culture, Media and Sport) ministers through the Prime Minister. When new trustees are needed the posts are publicly advertised. The one thing that puzzles me is this. If the posts are truly advertised publicly – meaning the public who apply have a fair and equal opportunity to be on the board – then why isn’t the board more diverse? Or is it simply lip service recruitment policy whereby the Royal Charter and law states that posts must be externally advertised which happens in nearly all major corporations nowadays. In other words unless you’re a “good ole boy or gal” you haven’t got a hope in hell of getting involved in the BBC Trust.

.

How much do the BBC Trustees earn?

Everything it seems about the BBC Trust is hidden in plain view. Trustees’ fees are set by the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport. The Chairman’s fee is £110,000, The Vice Chairman £70,610, £37,660 for the National Trustees and £32,952 for other Trustees. The Chairman, Lord Patten, is expected to spend 3-4 days a week on Trust business and the Vice Chairman, Diane Coyle, about 2.5 days. Other Trustees are expected to spend about 2 days a week at most for their £32,952 salary.

In the words of Mel Brookes, and of course I’m paraphrasing massively …

“It’s good to be a member of the BBC Trust!”

So without further ado – here are the BBC TRUSTEES, or as the Sicilians would,call them, the BBC Cosa Nostra, and I suppose they would know. Make of them what you will …

It appears that not only do the BBC Trustees not represent the diversity of our nation. They all have conflicts of interest ranging from owning or running private media organisations and consultancies to being former high level executives of banking cartels. Of course if you go the University of Aberystwyth and implement ideas of BBC board member Elan Closs Stephens – you are almost guaranteed to walk into a senior role at the BBC, or at least that’s the perception.

Would the University of Aberystwyth be a main media hub if it wasn’t for their connection to the BBC?

I’m absolutely certain that if I was on the board of the BBC Trust then my film production company would benefit greatly from my participation. Just take David Liddiment for example. As Creative Director of All3Media he ensures his company gets the lions share of commissions to produce programmes for the BBC. Which again proves that so-called independent production companies are simply ex-BBC staff or current BBC Trustees setting up major media firms to soak up lucrative commissions.

The most disturbing of the group, in my opinion, are Lord Patten, who is a close friend of Cabinet Minister Kenneth Clarke who gave the keys to Broadmoor to Jimmy Savile to sexually abuse vulnerable people, and Lord Williams of Baglan – whose job on the board is to implement the ideas of The United Nations and in particular Agenda 21 through BBC programming.

Then there’s the bankster stooges of Messrs. Rothschild and Warburg who represent their banks on the board. One of the ways that John D Rockefeller took over the pharmaceutical industry was by placing stooges from his foundations on the board of medical schools to teach doctors only about his brand of pharmaceuticals and not about alternative medicine; which for thousands of years was curing diseases.

This is exactly what’s happening here.

Which is why you’ll never see programmes on the BBC about alternative news, health, finance or culture, etc, etc,. Non of these people are equipped to investigate decades of BBC paedohpilia and abuse cover ups. I suggest that they will simply make Jimmy Savile a scape goat for historical abuse and look no further to implement change across the organisation other than blaming their staff in the BBC Trust unit.

.

So what’s the solution?

It’s simple. Start by removing this sick cabal of institutional profiteers who are clearly abusing their positions for personal gain within the BBC Trust itself. We need to expand the number of trustees and genuinely take members of the populace onto the board and pay them no more than expenses. In fact if I was chairman of the board I would turn the entire recruitment process into a television programme. Where members of the public, through a national lottery type show, could put themselves forward for these positions; hosted of course by former BBC favorite Phillip Schofield whose proven he’s willing to take on the government face to face over the paedophile issue. The only qualifications needed for entering the lottery would be that you pay the TV licence fee, pass a CRB and background check.

As for the two investigations the BBC Trust are conducting into the Jimmy Savile paedophile scandal, they clearly cannot be trusted to objectively investigate these crimes. It’s like Al Capone investigating his own tax returns – and of course finding himself innocent. The corruption doesn’t just run to the board of trustees. The so-called four Audience Councils for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland are appointed by … guess who … that’s right, you guessed it … the BBC Trust itself.

Again, they are hardly likely to allow dissenting views to be put forward. If they do, I’m sure a Common Purpose trained BBC “helper” will correct their opinion … as one insider informed me.

In my opinion, there is something deeply wrong and disturbing about the BBC Trust and all its members, their affiliations and connections. Is it not surprising therefore that the BBC Paedophile ring could well start with the Royal Family and Prime Minister, who are responsible for hiring these people in the first place.

Instead of ridiculous and time-wasting investigations conducted by the oligarchy on themselves we need a truly independent person to come in and shake up the entire BBC corporation, the wider entertainment industry and society itself.

    “…Anthony Salz who is now Executive Vice-Chairman of Rothschild and was formerly Vice Chairman of the BBC Governors. Anthony Salz is also on the board at the Common Purpose controlled Media Standards Trust that launched the hacking inquiry. The Scott Trust and the Rothschild ‘Eranda Foundation’ have both funded the Media Standards Trust. Anthony Salz is a trustee of the Scott Trust which owns the Guardian Media Group. It was the Guardian newspaper that first published information about Milly Dowler’s phone having been hacked.”

    Lord Patten who is Chairman of the BBC Trust is also a member of Common Purpose.

  4. Governments of whatever stripe come; governments of whatever stripe go. Nothing, though, is ever done to tackle the BBC’s outrageous, blatant, globalist, Left-wing bias. One has to conclude that even the most Right-wing governments, like that of the faux Conservative Thatcher, have been and remain tacitly in league with this bunch of evil, lying shysters and quite happy give them free reign to propagate their vile Cultural Marxist NWO agenda which is killing this country through constantly undermining the foundations that have historically underpinned it.
    The BBC must be shut down. It is clearly beyond reform. Its ‘unique’ funding model is nothing more than licenced theft, its output is pernicious and vile and those who run it and permit it to leach off us should be dragged out and hanged in public. No clemency for these filthy, kiddie-fiddling nation wreckers.

    • Well said, Mr. E. The BBC have really shit in their own nest this time, and their reluctance to address years of depravity will only hasten their demise. Of course, all the nonces and perverts in the governing class will be working overtime to protect their arses … and I rather suspect that the sudden reversal of Steven Messham will probably have more to do with Machiavellian plotting behind the scenes than any belated realisations about mistaken identity on his part. He’s been worked on; expect more of the same.

      • Indeed, Mr. C. You will recall that we had, until quite recently, a contributor here by the screen name of “Tinks” who, a good while before all this blew up, claimed to have been a victim of child abuse in a North Wales children’s home and who further declared that he was still under threat to keep schtum – some 30 years later – from the nonces that abused him – or other Establishment pervs linked to the same or similar child sex ring or rings.
        I can only hope that Tinks is cooperating fully with inquiries and will report back to us here at some point with a full account of what took place and whether he feels his complaints – assuming he has made any, of course – are moving the matter on towards a satisfactory resolution: the public exposure of every cunt involved, with no bastard spared the spotlight of Truth.

          It does stink a bit, not me, the whole abuse and cover-up thing.

          It is a veritable rats nest.

      • Yes there are subtle differences depending on which news report you read/hear , in one report it said Mr. Messham pointed out his abuser from a photograph and the police (wrongly) identified the person to him as Lord Mcalpine . So who was the person in the photograph and was the photo supplied by Mr. Messham or one belonging to the police . Was it misidentified by mistake or was it an attempt to frighten off Mr. Messham by making him believe it was a highly placed and important person . The msm do not seem to be asking relevant questions and no one seems to be interested in undoing blairs damage limitation exercise and getting the operation Ore information back into play.

        • Fully agree, Neo. Ore was comprehensively covered up to protect the guilty. We need to re-investigate the whole affair from the ground up and hang/burn the cunts responsible in public as a warning to others that you can’t ever put such a past behind you and sleep easy at night. Burn ‘em; hang ‘em. You know it makes sense.
