  1. It would be interesting if BBC Watch were to publish how many Israeli retaliations were made and how many of those were reported by the BBC. My guess would be “100%”.

  2. From those figures it is obvious that the BBC do not suffer from 6Ps, (piss poor planning produces poor production) they must spend the majority of their time cross co-ordinating with all their news production employees on all the various worldwide platforms used, in order to produce such a blanket ban on informing the general public of what is actually taking place in Israel. Still waiting for the date from the government for the necessary debate since the target was achieved 15 days ago Vote for a public enquiry https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/234797

  3. My guess would be the same – 100% of retaliations. I wonder how many would be credited as retaliation or even self-defence, and how many would be portrayed as unexplained attacks?
