The Song of the Pioneers

The people’s flag is brightest red - it helps us earn our daily bread
Though skinflints mock and Tories jeer - the licence fee’s not really dear
The licence fee! The licence fee!
It pays the bills for you and me!
From single mums in Bethnal Green - for expense accounts and limousines

If they don’t pay the licence fee - it’s jail and chuck away the key
For posh school fees and winter sports - we need to add a few more naughts
Our pensions are inflation free - all paid for by the licence fee
The licence fee! The licence fee!
Don’t take away our licence fee!
A hundred and thirty odd quid a year - will keep the red flag flying here!

A New Day Has Dawned - Has it Not?

Comrades !

On Thursday a specially trained unit of the Party's loyal anti insurgency troops successfully breached the lair of one of the Bullingdonian reactionaries' most prominent thought criminals and pedlars of disinformation.

Armed only with a handful of batons, CS sprays, tasers and hand held automatic weapons, a small group of nine heroic comrades overcame considerable resistance by the self styled "wife" and "daughter" of the criminal Green - and were able to confiscate large quantities of suspect material as well as disabling his communication networks.

This is truly a milestone in the Party's proud history - the first time our revolutionary guards have had the confidence to take direct action against the self-confessed enemies of the People's government.

The Party's creed is "A Future Fair to All" and we want to use this event to remind all citizens that there is a fair chance in all their futures that this could happen to them if they become involved in anti-Party activities.

We at BBC Pioneers are proud to have played our part by helping to explain the backgound to this momentous event.

Comrade Crick of Newsnight was able to explain to viewers last night the vital difference between the use, by the Dear Leader in his opposition years, of information supplied by loyal Party members operating inside the despicable Thatcher regime - and the shameless, illegal theft of confidential state secrets by the arch criminal Green and his lackeys.

Comrade "Hero of Broadcasting" Crick has proved his loyalty to the Party many times since his early days as activist and prospective parliamentary candidate

The Dear Leader in 1985 -explaining the importance of using inside information from loyal informers inside the despised Thatcher junta.

Victory !

Victory is ours

To all loyal comrades at the peoples BBC

- we at BBC Pioneers salute you!

After months of deceit and lies by the bullingdonian reactionaries and their lickspittle running dog collaborators in the so called free media - you have worked tirelessly to expose the party's greatest victory.

It now falls on you to remind those weak minded citizens with short memories about what really happened in the Great Election Victory of October 2007 - when they unanimously elected The Dear Leader for his first 50 year term.

A couple more NULAB Spin Doctors - from your favourite broadcaster, of course.

It's like Michael Caine in Zulu.

As soon as you think you've got 'em nailed down - another wave come over the hill!

Today - two top Beeboids who leapt enthusiastically onto the New Labour bandwagon, but sadly came unstuck.

Martin Sixsmith - BBC Foreign Correspondent 1980 - 1997

Martin Sixsmith joined the BBC in 1980 and worked as a a foreign correspondent in Brussels, Geneva, Moscow and Washington.

Following the 1997 election he left the BBC to work for the Labour government as Director of Communications.

He described his enthusiasm for his new job, when he later told the Independent :- "It was May 1997, it was a new start after 18 years of Tory misrule.....".

He was later Press Secretary to Labour Ministers Harriet Harman and Alistair Darling.

After a brief period in the private sector, he returned to the government in 2001 as Director of Communications for the Department of Transport but left after an acrimonious dispute over ethical issues. He said - "Over the 10 years since 1997 there has been this chipping away at the confidence of the civil service, and I don't think it's the impartial, honest organisation it used to be....."

He is now once more a regular broadcaster for the BBC.

Joy Johnson - BBC Political News Editor 1992 - 1995

Joy Johnson was a BBC political journalist and became Political News Editor in 1992 at the Millbank centre.

Polly Toynbee said of her "...feeding the many bulletins' limitless appetite for soundbites - 20 seconds and not a nanosecond more. It's a tough skill and she was the best".

In 1995 she was recruited by Gordon Brown to join New Labour as Campaigns Director, responsible for winning Labour's 80 target seats.

She fell victim to Blair/Brown tribal warfare and left acrimoniously in 1996.
She is now chief spin doctor for "Red Ken" Livingstone at the GLA.

Keep watching this space for many more to come and, by the way, many thanks to those of you who've nominated your own Socialist Heroes - especially those within the bowels of the beast at the BBC.

Today we're giving awards to three BBC Socialist Heroes who are now Labour MPs

Chris Bryant is Labour MP for Rhondda.

He first joined the Labour Party in 1966 and became a Party Agent in 1991.

From 1993 to 1998 he served as a Labour councillor in Hackney.

In 1997 he stood unsuccessfully as a Labour candidate for Wycombe and then joined the BBC in 1998 as Head of European Affairs.

In 2000 he was selected for the Rhondda seat and finally became an MP.

.In 2003 he apologised for e-mailing a picture of himself in his underpants to prospective partners via a gay website.

Celia Barlow is Labour MP for Hove and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Minister for Climate Change.

Celia joined the Labour Party and her first trade union when she was 16.

Between 1983 and 1995 she was a Westminster reporter and finally Home News Editor at the BBC.

While she was at the BBC she was Secretary of Chelsea Constituency Labour Party, later she became Chair.

Her husband Sam Jaffa was BBC North America Correspondent.

He stood as Labour candidate for Eastleigh in 2001.

Phil Woolas is Labour MP for Oldham and Saddleworth and Minister for the Environment.

He first joined the Labour Party at the age of 16 and was active in student politics, becoming President of the National Union of Students.

From 1988 - 1990 he was a producer on the BBC Newsnight Programme.

He was then a trade union official before standing for Parliament in 1997.

From time to time it has been suggested that, in order to meet its legal charter commitment to political impartiality, the BBC should ask staff in sensitive positions to declare any party allegiance.

This has routinely been rebuffed with the claim that people should be entitled to keep their political beliefs private.

Time and time again, however it emerges that the BBC have recruited people for key political roles who have been open, declared, political party activists before, after and even during their BBC service - and always for the same party.

Political Impartiality at the BBC is a Bad Joke.

Hain's Job Goes to Ex Beeboid

James Purnell has been appointed Work and Pensions Minister in place of disgraced Peter Hain who is facing a police investigation into undeclared donations.

Purnell is a classic Nulab/BBC apparatchik. Before become a Downing Street adviser in1997 he was BBC Head of Corporate Planning.

Prior to that he worked for the left wing think tank - the Institute of Public Policy Research.
While still a student, prior to the 1992 election, he worked as a researcher for Tony Blair. At that time Ed Richards worked in the next door office for Gordon brown and was later to become BBC Controller of Corporate Strategy.
So the two key people in charge of the BBC's strategic direction in the run up to Labour's 1997 election victory had previously respectively worked for New Labour's two principal players - and would return to work for them again soon afterwards.

Does anybody believe this was a coincidence?

Did these appointments reflect the BBC's legal obligation to political impartiality?
