Television tribalism

television star

television star never seen

Television is something i do not get with billionaire families  like Murdoch (my blog) complaining about shows made by public ‘subscription’* for look like they cost pennies to make. Somehow ballroom dancing and baking cakes (my blog) is not something they can do.

This brings me to people on tv who i read about and may not like (my blog) who cannot work for two broadcasters for a perception of working for the wrong side.   A bit like rugby union, a sport  where being professional is frowned upon but ok in league (my blog)

This also applies to made for television stars, and zoo’s as well too who generally cannot also cross channels.

Since i am not into talent shows for the talentless, ‘baking’ or ballroom i am kind of bemused when i read twitter to find out it this strange stuff.

*the irony here is that some of murdoch’s offspring made tv programes via independent television production companies for said channels

Navy recruiting (in the navy we want you…)

Once again (my blog) the royal navy being a little more savvy than the army recruiting had yet another tv series which looks like it is a better recruiting advert than the army with its diversity targets and yes we are friendly to suicide bombers approach i suppose it beats buying hand grenades..

After all conscription (my blog) was more for the army not the navy or air force it is an interesting read that book i have linked to .   If your looking for lyrics (not here) for that song.  I refuse to link to video sites since they age quickly.

This was also evident by the ethnic minorities and  females the media people honed in on or where told to feature – anybody over 25 or white was mostly ignored unless your the lady captain gives you a measure of the reason why the media professionals where aboard.

Being a shortage of boats* (my blog) i understood that even becoming a navy recruit was difficult until recently and there where more admirals than sea going boats and if you cannot do it it is generally ignored as a career and as more experienced ranks leave you can guess why they did what they did  now with the media company as these new boats coming online.

Saudi Arabia – Not pro womens rights

The boat is wondering about the black sea and the mediterranean opposed to whatever navies usually used to do**.

Overall it is a gentile look at the royal navy who it seems lost out when afganistan (my blog) was getting all the attention for all the wrong reasons once again.  Quite what this says about the politicians is one you can also muse on***,

Lets hope this gender bias and stuff seen here does not hurt the navy like it did with the county armies (pals)[wikipedia link not here]  in britian during the 1914-1918 war some time in the future.

Overall you can look at it in two ways a make work scheme or nation states policing themselves.

*money spent on afganistan instead **speed boat chasing in the carribean  *** short termism

why we get the wrong politicians, Isabel Hardman

isbn: 9781782399735 is a book with a author with a humorous name.  Isabell being a muppet means guilt by association.

As part of the Westminster bubble this is not an honest expose like Orwell did indicating who he thought what parliament members where russia friendly in the 1940’s.

It is sympathetic to would be politicians and tolerant to parties who do not offer much support so any criticism is muted from the author after all access to these people is a journalists goal, not holding these people to account. .  Most of the hard research does not come from her.

Centralisation is a problem for political parties for instance do you vote for may, (my blog) or the person standing locally who the author never covers in the mainstream media (my blog).  I do not like May, but Corbyn  is also a marmite (my blog) like figure.   This is where the media is flawed.

Snap elections also do not help her feelings come in the way as no politician is deemed a bad one, and no woman is a bad mp although  May’s  ‘(my blog) micro managing will be deemed bad that seemed a very hard admission from an author that a woman does not trust anybody.

It is hard to like this book or the people neutered impotent by power who still vote in idiotic law (my blog).

1/5 bananas.


Islam’s female crime problem affecting retail shops [not an ‘issue’ yet]

Would you rob an old disabled female in a wheelchair ? in an indoor retail shop well dressed in burkas * gangs of females are robbing i guess easy targets.

Its been told to us that the police regard this as a victimless crime.  Sounds familiar (my blog)

wenlock a policeman

Anyhow with the retail parks (my blog) complaining about lackluster business ala nobody buys from us…  it shall be interesting to see quite how this is not the problem but all amazon’s fault after all that disabled woman was certainly going to give it to thieves only anyhow, that’s good policeman logic and works also for the queen of charity shops (my blog).

queen of the charity shops mary portas

Here is what happens  and how i know – 1 gets robbed as well as the wheelchair woman, 1 phones 2, 2 relays this exponentially.  you get the idea.  The burka is the ideal disguise .  Well officer I got mugged by a tent certainly has a that must be racist, or code for this wont make me policeman of the year.

I think this says a lot about society and considering we apes are way down the pyramid and still know about this via the bush telegraph.

Think about it.

Anyhow i know and now you also know.

as seen on tv (via the library)

As somebody who uses a library and does not have Rupert Murdoch tv due to ethics (my blog) i saw that this unknown book (left) to me was made into a series.

I do not really care but in my unscientific study of requests for it in the library region (bigger than Camdem) then appear to be only 39 people who  read the source.

This is not a expansive survey for the whole country but it seems rupert murdoch clients dont read.  This is confirmed also by this (my blog)  an author i have read before and got a made for tv adaptation.  Library interest again was low in that hard to find book.

Since as seen on tv is generally a not recommendation for me i am also not going to read it.

the failed sport advertisement on the bbc

Fernando Zylberberg (.ar) shaves his legs and wears a skirt

Bananas (me) just turned on the security office television (my blog) here in the zoo and the default channel being ‘1’ had celebrities dancing for about twelve minutes**.

I have no idea who these people on the television are  but while waiting for the security team to decide on something to watch they said one of them is a famous cricketer who quit, unfortunately the broadcaster could not prove this as the show did not want to pay for rights of the sports for the television coverage that three people and two thirds of dog* saw at 2am live because it was live at the bottom of the world.

It is an interesting view that one broadcaster wont bother to show something if they did not pony up to pay the sports broadcast fee of a clip and if only one  channel can show x doing it there is no benefit to any other channel showing it.

The security office once equipped with tea and us apes with banana found this to be of no interest and selected something else to watch.

seems appropriate

Sport worries about its audience and young players the so called next generation and if your football (soccer to the yanks) you have no problems with who gets the tv rights, but if your rugby, or cricket they are known of but more vague in the minds of the public.

Test time  – name me three badminton professionals (no searching)  times up – Point made

I dont think dancing celebrities on tv has managed to get a football player to do it when i asked the security team they being more wise here than me.  So while the sport ‘has been’ may have been good at it it was no advertisement (free) for the sport and will  not be attracting children to the sport.

I have no issues with that as i hate sport and write this with no actual interest in the ballroom or sports who sell tv rights seem very stupid and the television companies cunning to which it could be a clever way to annoy sporty people who might be rich now but forget that if subscribers do not pay the ability of certain broadcasters to pay what they do diminishes .

I was surprised to notice that american football and its bend the knee protests meant it was on free to air television which i or the security team here have no interest in at all paid or otherwise – sports can fail.

I thanked Charlie (my blog) for the banana and left.

*66% ** normal people cannot dance according to the bbc.

Her talents are wasted as prime minster

street urchins

I do not like  Theresa May (my blog) but while searching for a technical book this genius act of comedy made me do a double take.

Really yes it does exist

I wonder what she will do to fuck up* tcpip like whats going on with brexit.   This woman has a midas touch.  I guess the uk be leaving the internet as well.

As to finding a book  that’s a task for another day.  Comrade May probably hates the internet as well.

Well done Mr Fowler.

*british telecom fucked up the isdn standard.

Municipal dreams, John Boughton

isbn: 9781784787394 deals with the yo yo change in policy on council (social) housing and the lack of building regulations that apply to local government (my blog) ,  Mind you if they think flat roofs are a good idea (my blog) for the english climate it could be argued that no local government should never be allowed to build anything.

Anyhow with that tower block going up in flames* (my  blog)and the change in perception mean this area needs a light shone on it.

The usual suspects include the salvation army, this bloke (my blog) and the health engineers who put the sewers in.  politics mires this admirable idea with short termism and the labour party (my blog) is accused by turning this scheme into a workhouse rather than social engineering and aspirational it was once thought it was in fact gentrification is a word used which does not mean what means now.

The idea that all council houses are the same is roundly mocked as the first built units are better than the last as the money ran out.  Modern housing changed from ideal to something deemed a military goal after all healthy cannon fodder (my blog) is needed.

After the second world war when both money and building material where in short supply naturally any restoration in quantity of housig could not be met by any government so larger schemes with large builders took over taking bribes as well while housing was built its legacy has not lasted if you read some of the links i provided.

As to whether maintenance was lacking or poor initial building by the contractors no one in local government checked on  the politics once again interferes for if you move labour party supporters en mass outside a voting area then what benefit does the  social housing  have for politicians ?  Housing thus became a football.  Short termism thinking began.

As industries moved (my blog( [or became uneconomic] housing began to be in the wrong places something both conservative and labour parties failed to notice.

1977 seems to mark the end of 177 years of ‘council’ housing when the labour party made it female friendly and begins the trend of the single mother on benefits. preference (my blog you get the idea man deserts)   Although some successes there is a lot of failure and the rise of housing associations non local governmental  organisations yes but unable to get away with burning tower blocks and poor buildings which fail all including as an advertisement for builders.

That takes us to 1979 when the wheels fell off the train and the labour bias of the author show though.   He can be highly negative of anything that shows councils as anything but paragons of good, for instance no mention is ever made that lambeth in london  had a rent deficit for several million pounds for social housing, which meant some tenants had rotting and falling apart kitchen units (as seen on tv news) despite paying there rent it was not fixed

While criticism is accepted it seems one side gets more of it than others.   Another thing he forgets is that with the cladding that set fire is also on privately owned buildings as well but i suppose the confutation that only it used on public housing makes it a gas chamber device** has a charge to it but if you lease a property in a private building that’s not a gas chamber.

The UK needs housing but what appears to have happened is the builders are still busy*** even when the economy was in recession but they do not work singularly for the public sector any more.

What the author also forgets is that in the 1940’s the price of property fell and the council tenants where materially richer owning cars and disposable items where mortgage holders did not and had to build better houses and flats due to building regulations

So when people talking of housing shortages it seems that council housing got all the attention during the after war years of austerity.   This means governemt both red and blue can be blamed for not building.

Immigration also does not help is another problem unseen by the author.

So there are faults and this is not an unbiased report- read the links for context 3/5 bananas.
