Interesting stuff, shame people have to politise the current situations and the BBC's role in it, rather than looking at the fansinating events and ideas of the past.

Show how the prince of Great Britain proudly wore a fascist uniform before the Second World War and how the current prince wore a fascist uniform. This is what blood means.

They have since changed their name to the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation, and their new role is to help MP's thwart Brexit and silence millions of people.

Yet another 'war reference'.
I think we are being told a major war is just around the corner.
Get ready.

It's a shame what the BBC has become. It is now not impartial politically, obsessed by identity politics and produces panel comedy shows that contain no one except people who think patriotism equates to being Nazis. They also refer to anyone who is right of centre as far right and detest Brexit. The BBC needs to change.
