The x Factor

The BBC are telling us that owing to the rise in the birth rate in the UK a quarter of a million new school places will be needed by September 2014. The BBC coyly doesn’t mention just where the high birthrates are coming from…

One cannot think why…

BBC.

A quarter of a million extra school places will be needed in England by autumn 2014 to meet rising demand, the National Audit Office (NAO) is warning.
The spending watchdog said one in five primary schools in England was full or near capacity and there were signs of “real strain” on places.
The demand for places has been driven by the birth rate rising more quickly than at any time since the 1950s.
Ministers say 80,000 extra places have been created and demand will be met.
Schools minister David Laws said the government was “reversing completely idiotic policies” followed under Labour that had seen 200,000 school places cut.
Labour has denied the claim and accuses the coalition of creating a “crisis”.

Bit disingenuous of Labour as they’re the ones who actually created the crisis, not the government as most of the rise is due to the number of immigrants having babies has doubled since 2001, largely driven by an influx of Polish, Pakistani and Indian mothers.

This has been the main reason behind an increase in the overall UK birth rate to its highest level in decades, with 800,000 births in 2011, compared with 670,000 in 2001.Take a wild stab in the dark as to which party was in power during those years…

Yes, Labours policy of uncontrolled immigration from the EU and the Indian sub-continent is now coming home to roost as the influx now makes itself felt in areas other than housing and jobs. Yet strangely the BBC fail to mention immigration or just who was in charge during the time the influx happened. Not that the coagulation have done much to cut the numbers, they talk a good game, but talk is cheap.

One could almost come to the conclusion that the BBC might have an institutional bias towards Labour, but that would be silly wouldn’t it? You’ll be telling me that they’re stuffing the Question Time audience with Labour Activists next to try and get at anyone not toeing the BBC/Labour line…

Oh…

    Absolutely impossible. Labour says so, as do the Beeb, so it must be as they say.

    The BBC was taken over by Common Purpose some time ago,as for school places it is clear that over one million gipsies are preparing to head for Britain from Romania and Bulgaria.

      XX it is clear that over one million gipsies are preparing to head for Britain from Romania and Bulgaria.XX

      No. Total lies.

      Most interviewed are actualy heading for Germany.

      But then, it would not be considered “correct” for US to complain about the fact, would it.

    From BBC Have Your Say:
    Niel Fort, from Bolton

    “I’m an unemployed warehouse worker and have been on jobseeker’s allowance [JSA] for over a year.

    “The cap on welfare rise is a joke because I receive only £50 a week… to feed myself, pay gas and electric, which I cannot afford to do.

    I’ve always voted Labour, and thanks to the Tories, all the jobs have been taken by immigrants”

    “Also, I think my parents took this ‘I before E’ business a bit too seriously when they named me, a bit like Niels Bohr’s parents. whoever he was”

    The points about immigration and fertility are probably valid.
    But this BBC bashing is ridiculous.
    SKYNEWS reported the same story in the same way.
    They each take press releases and run them and recycle them to fill 24 hour news.
    Perhaps the BBC is biased, but you don’t prove your case by referrring to other comments on websites.
    Quotations and timings of BBC items are needed to support claims of bias.
