This really angered me.
How utterly disgusting of the BBC to go about their business. I wrote up an extensive complaint (pasted below) and sent to them requesting their reply
- I wonder what sort I will get?
At the moment the UK is standing up as I thought they would be. Alot of people like me are part of a generation (i'm 27) that also a huge part the
young population represent that are "woken up" to the real facts of life and society in general over here. We are watched continuously and influenced
by so many different things - yet the majority of us don't see it from a multi-dimensional perspective - only 2D which is a one-view way.
That talented Kid who is 15 and made his 5 minute speech - wow, what a leader. I want him to be strong and then be someone who could run our country
in the future.
Keep the fight going people - lets spread this movement worldwide!
I am writing to express my complete and utter disgust I view with regard to the way this live interview was conducted.
BBC credits itself on being an unbiased corporation. It is a state-sponsored organisation and to only regard an interview with the general opinion of
the state and not recognise what was being stated without an opinion goes beyond this.
The interviewer in question was forceful in nature and unfair. It was almost as if he was insinuating that Jody McIntyre was expressing a view he did
not agree with and that Mr McIntyre was in fact lying or that his complaint toward the police was not enforceable for any reason.
I am disgusted that you would get someone live on television, broadcast around the World and conduct an interview with such manner.
1) Why was the same question of "Are you going to enter a complaint?" pressed over and over when Mr McIntyre responded with an answer? Was he under
scrutiny for some reason? Was he being treated as the perpetrator as opposed to the witness of deplorable violent conduct by the police? - He
obviously wanted to gather his thoughts and hit the police themselves with the "full force of the law" and the majority of those with intelligence
could understand this.
2) Why did he not respond to Mr McIntyre's "fair" questions? Mr McIntyre demonstrated a decent manner in answering his questions fairly and to the
point. Why was he not acknowledged? Why were subjects changed? Which leads me on to...
3) Why was Mr McIntyre's character demeaned in such a manner as a response to a fair answer "You say you’re a revolutionary though". What does this
imply to the public who do not see multiple perspectives on a given subject/situation?
What is a revolutionary? Is it an anarchist? Is it someone who perpetrates violence? Or is it someone who is trying to fight for his country. The
people that represent Britain and what are the backbone of this great nation. The nature of the interviewers comment would insinuate that Mr McIntyre
is actually part of a radicalist group that incites violence. How is this so?
It is a great shame that those who represent such core values of our country can be demonised in such a manner and that your corporation can instil a
thought that actually the Government are what represent Britain?
It is disgusting! How can such an interview be aired on live TV and someone try to demonise someone? Unfortunately for the BBC Mr McIntyre (whom
I’ve never met and have no relation to) actually has an ounce of passion and intelligence and could answer his questions in a fantastic manner.
It is people like Mr McIntyre that are trying to keep our core values that even represent what nation YOU are from. This isn't just about Student
Lots of people are becoming aware that we are no longer represented. These are our roads, our parks - our heritage made this and we represent it. It
is time for people to fight back but does this necessarily "have" to include violence?
By airing this interview you have put out an influential and fiercely opinionated criticism by the BBC.
Absolutely shocking and I really would consider an apology was made.
Could a gentleman in a wheelchair, disabled with cerebral palsy really pose a threat to an army of policemen?
Don't you think it’s time to answer that question as opposed to creating a diversionary tactic?
Come on BBC, do you think he posed a threat?
Representing your country more than the BBC,
