    Disgusting and disgraceful behaviour from an incompetent Government on its knees:



    Hope all of Parliament revolts against this.

    What possible difference would it make if it does? There is no negotiated deal, the EU basically laid out the terms of Britain leaving two years ago. It was always take it, or leave it. Nothing has changed in two years.

    Lammy is a walking insult to the intelligence of the British public. Those who voted out were too dumb to be allowed to cross the road on their own, has been his argument for the last two years.

    He basically has shown complete contempt for the democratic process i.e. the people's vote, that we all went through two years ago,

    Do you ever listen to 5 Live (when you are not flat out working or busy enlightening lesser mortals on the internet)?
    Lots of Brexit related phone-ins on 5Live. Lots.
    'Fascinating' if only for the stereotypes - of all types - living up to themselves so .. stereotypically.

    'Contempt' can be identifed in all corners of Parliament at rgis time. Not sure why D. Lammy has got your gander up so particulalry?

    Instead of wasting your time listening to 5 Live and vox pop, why not do some actual research and review Lammy's statements on the subject during the last two years.

    Not for long.

    He starts his third 12 hour shift of the day in a bit.

    Man’s an inspiration to us all.

    Thanks for your suggestion ..

    Live phone-ins are not scripted nor edited and are thus are not wholly manipulated 'vox pop' in the sense that you imply.

    Please don't be so naive. Every single discussion programme on television or radio is themed and contributors are vetted prior to going on air by the production staff. Do you honestly believe with the years that the BBC has been acting as a state programmer, with all the revelations that have emerged about selectivity, that 5 Live is any different?

    SD.
    Ive taken part in a number of live phone-ins, including the fecking feckers that are the BBC, once including 5L
    I'm aware that sometimes a balance is very likely/clearly sought over the duration of a broadcast, (unavoidably - why? Fecking simply because otherwise there would _always_ be myriad compaints from one or another section of society who will feel 'unrepresented' and who then start shouting about bias), but on none of the few occsions was I vetted, directed, suggested, nor edited.
    Sorry to dissapoint.
    I'm sure there is a percentage of horseshit that goes on but do try to speak from experience rather than solely predictable cliche.

    How do you know how many were rejected, or just didn't get on air to express their particular point of view? How are you able to gauge whether the production staff were selecting people impartially. How much time was given to the various sides of the argument? How many times did the presenter interrupt one person and yet allow another to make their point fully? Who had the hard questions aimed at them and which ones in the programme were bowled underarm?
    There's lots of ways that programmers fashion a programme to reflect a particular bias, or a theme which fits in with their desired result.

    I'm talking about real-time phone-ins for goodness sake. Not something thats been planned for a week, pre-meditated and pre-recorded.
    For a man so pleased with his own opinions, and so disparaging of almost all others, I dont think you illustrate a grasp of the most very basic of concepts. Seen it over and over.
    Trump-esque.

    Anyway, f*ck the BBC, I'm not hanging around here to look like I'm defending them. Nor wasting my time with Trump-a-like.

    Don't you think LBC runs 'real -time phone in programs'? They're doing it all day, every day, seven days a week. That doesn't stop them from having a slant or a preferred outcome on certain issues.

    Brexit is the biggest thing which has happened to Britain since the Second World War, there are huge ramifications for this country, whichever way it plays out.
