the northern beach
I was reading the other newspaper (which i don’t particularity respect) and things i had missed when a bbc (who the newspaper does not like either) radio drama called borderland was suggested as worth a hear. .
So one day i set my ears to receive left wing centrist bbc bias
Set in post brexit Britannia the immigrants – be they legal or illegal are leaving and while the playwright keeps it fresh with a dose of sports direct working conditions and the calais chaos (you tube) its grasp of devolution politics and peoples north of Watford , and wet ones in the west leaves much to be desired.
It is conveniently forgotten that labour brought in devolution of wales and scotland and neither are now strong labour voting areas. As to northern Ireland well that’s been reunited with the south in this drama.
If you had not guessed it the scots and the welsh are also racists in this drama but since they did not vote red that must be true after all playwrights never lie,
Eventually our victim (female) gets to Ireland and lives happily ever after and this is where i get confused
spot the police not the farmers
For four hundred the years protestants and catholics have had a deep mistrust of each other and as the bbc has reported in northern ireland that if you mix say muslim into that mix (bbc news) then i see a new threat to both not that i believe in the sky fairies
While it might be ‘drama’ why is it not wrong to paint locals as evil for pointing out the problems with an ever increasing population and less money spent on say libraries and health.
If the bbc wishes to paint all of ts white viewers as racist then good for it but by doing so they miss there point. Not all of us live in Islington, and why does not immigration not mater to non women friendy ireland ? (my blog)
If walking with a orange band is cause for the riot police to be out most nights and segration of catholics from protestants is still common somehow to call the irish non problematic seems odd.
Anyhow what do i know. perhaps i should find a zoo in Islington
