You Get The Privilege Of Paying BBC Workers An Extra £740 Million - Government Gave BBC Extra Funding To Promote What They Knew To Be Warming Lie - No News At Ten
Share prices in windmill companies are now close to worthless.
So what is to be done to help the poor things.
"The BBC is to pump £740 million of licence fee payers’ cash into its pension scheme, to try and close a funding deficit that has nearly doubled over the last three years.
According to a new valuation, the deficit in the BBC pension fund – ie, the value of its assets minus its projected liabilities to retiring staff – has grown from £1.1 billion in 2010 to £2bn in 2013.
Well, surprise surprise, the BBC is going to pay it. Since the BBC has no money of its own and is unwillingly subsidised by us, to the tune of about £2.5 bn a year, this is going to put a significant hole in BBC spending on actual programmes &/or a significant increase in what is taken from us.
Typically mention of this does not come from the BBC who are rigorously censoring any mention on their own site, though to be fair, they have twice previously mentioned the rising problem - in 2003 & 2006.
In a similarly corrupt vein the censorship, on BBC sites continues, of any mention that the 28 Gate fraud proves that the entire organisation have deliberately lied (& in Helen Boaden's case perjured herself in court) to promte a warming scare they have known for, at a minimum, 7 years, to be a lie itself.
However the estimable Sunday Mail does an article on it (with assistance from Bishop Hill & other bloggers) which reveals that the corruption was even more direct than appeared.
In promoting the lie they were not merely doing the state's work the very "symposium" of the "world's leading scientists", on which they depended (actually only 2 scientists but they did have a US government psychological warfare expert, a CofE divine and enough government paid ecofascist activists to fill the black hole of Calcutta. It also turns out that this psychological wadfare symposium against the British people was funded not form the BBC's government grant but from an additional direct government payment.
"The controversial seminar was run by a body set up by the BBC’s own environment analyst Roger Harrabin and funded via a £67,000 grant from the then Labour government, which hoped to see its ‘line’ on climate change and other Third World issues promoted in BBC reporting"
