    Ode to Magnificent EU

    'EU is You'
    you said
    'EU is Ew' they said
    the detractors, chartlans and thieves,
    The British with their heart full of black deeds


    EU you magnificent
    In you is Democracy resplendent
    Unity in diversity
    wealth for posterity


    But O like a babe they fell upon you the blackguards
    with referendums vile, your destruction sought in their black hearts
    But you EU, with poise and intelligence unparalleled
    Laid their plans dead and pummeled
    Now as the villains walk into a future bleak
    The villains look so meek

    The news you get is BBC India too, which is not what we even get here. India only gets mentioned here if an MP visits.[/QUOTE]

    Yawn...more lies.

    Your state owned public funded media is hell bent on tarnishing India's image by peddling propaganda against us. Case closed.

    Dude, Your BBC has a Separate Department and Section only for India not Asia mind you and 'You haven't heard anything about India on news for months" ? Was BBC India section editors,reporters twiddling their thumbs for months or did they not get salaries for months ? I don't think so.

    This is the point I've been trying to make. You get BBC India, we don't. The BBC news in the UK rarely ever talks about India.

    Bullshit. 'BBC India' is nothing but a section of BBC website. There is no TV Channel called 'BBC India'.

    This is what I see on the UK site.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news

    The things under the 'Home' tab are what we get, which is a mixture of the UK and World tabs. The BBC India tab, which is a sub-tab under the Asia sub-tab under the World tab, we do not get. And to be honest, I would never have even read that shit if it wasn't for this forum.

    Your BBC.COM (British Broadcasting Corporation,not the porn site) website has a separate section only for India on its web pages,what do you think they report in it daily? or is that section empty without any news for months as you put it.

    @BMD

    As a country which supported Islamist Mujahideen in Afghanistan, Brits have no high moral ground to criticize India for retaining nominal trade links with DPRK. That article is a pure hit-job, and there seem to be a pattern to this.

    And that comment section is hilariously stupid, and shows how ignorant (and indophobic), an average Brit is.

    Do you want me to post that video of Margaret Thatcher referring to Mujahedeen as the 'hope of the free world'? I have never seen any British statesmen saying such nice things about India- other than the lectures on 'human rights in Cashmere'. So much for pontificating about democracy everywhere.

    And comparing Cholas to British imperialism shows how ignorant you are about British colonialism in general.

    More obfuscation. :lol: It's news from the India tab that sometime appear under the home tab (and in FB & Twitter pages)

    It's not obfuscation. Your view is very Indo-centric. BBC TV news in Britain has almost nothing about India ever. Why would it? You're at the other side of the planet. China features far more often than India and even mention of it is sparse. British BBC News is focused on UK, Europe, North America and the Middle East, with the latter simply being because armed forces are deployed there. Think about this. If all your news was about Columbia, would you watch it? No. The BBC News in the UK caters for interests of the UK public and India doesn't feature highly.

    Watch from 2:35. Shows the ethics of the so called 'BBC journalists'- shamelessly playing the religion card.

    Writing for The Hindu Business Line, reporter Premen Addy criticises the BBC's reportage on South Asia as consistently anti-India and pro-Islamist, and that they underreport India's economic and social achievements, as well as political and diplomatic efforts, and disproportionately highlight and exaggerate problems in the country.

    Case in point

    India's $100bn road building gamble to boost economy

    So investing $110 billion on road infrastructure is a 'gamble'. :lol:

    Another one.



    'rare showpiece that had been completed in the recent years'

    Yeah, it's not as if this exists...:lol:
