Cameron, Osborne, Hunt Should Watch Tonight's 'Panorama' to See the Gap Between Their Words and Their Country

I had my run-ins with Panorama when working for Tony Blair, usually because they tended to take a grain of truth from somewhere and flam it up into something worthier of a right-wing tabloid than the BBC. But tonight's version is all the stronger for being somewhat understated, telling the story rather than shouting it or ramming it down throats. I know our government leaders are busy (almost all) men, but I hope they find time to watch it. Because while they talk the talk on mental health, as the Prime Minister did in his party conference speech, the documentary shows the reality of mental health services on the frontline.

Ed Miliband has made it clear, on numerous occasions, he won't get into bed with Nicola Sturgeon. In fact some of his most passionate responses have come when dealing with this question. We now know Russell Brand has more chance of securing a cabinet position as there is clearly a very good chance he and Ed have at least shared a bed.

The Battle for British Islam = Propaganda for the CTS Bill

The political agenda pushed by journalists such as Ware, is nothing short of a divisive and destructive mechanism to socially facilitate the British public's support, or at least acceptance for a draconian legislation, such as the CTS bill by capitalising on people's fear of Muslims.

Food Banks Are Far More Than a Response to the Recession Crisis

David Walker | Posted 04.03.2015 | UK

It began with a BBC Panorama programme in early 2014. It has ended with an All Party Parliamentary report just before Christmas. From start to finish, 2014 became the year in which it has become clear that food banks are far more than a response to a crisis occasioned by the recent recession. Even as the economy grows and employment with it, the number of those presenting with genuine food poverty in Britain continues itself to grow, and rapidly. What's going on?

Panorama Shows 'Why She Doesn't Leave'

There is a wall of ignorance standing between victims of domestic violence and the rest of us. The constant question "why doesn't she just leave him?" has such a simple answer: she fears she will be killed. The two women a week who are killed, on average, by a partner or former partner, bear silent witness to this.

I was one of the 10 participants on a trip to North Korea in March 2013, involving students of the London School of Economics (LSE) and undercover journalists of the BBC. When I saw the BBC's apology, following an inquiry by the BBC Trust, I was baffled - it was an apology which I neither needed nor asked for.

Last Night's Panorama Wasn't Balanced, It Was Racist

Steve Rose | Posted 16.02.2014 | UK Politics
Steve Rose

This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism. But it also threatens our relationship with Europe and our right to free movement. On both fronts, we should all be worried about where this debate is heading in 2015.

Forty years on, the bereaved family members of those killed, as well others who were seriously injured in the shootings, are still struggling to piece together the truth of what happened - and why. No-one has ever been held accountable for these cold-blooded killings, carried out by the State, of some of its own citizens.
