Friday Drivetime

BCfm’s weekly politics show presented by Tony Gosling

At five: discussing the big stories in Bristol, Britain and around the world
After six: straight talking and investigative reports with Martin Summers and Marina Morris

For all the shows back to Easter 2009 visit the Friday Drivetime archive page.

First hour: Norwegian activist and blogger Torstein Viddal discusses shortcomings of his country’s police and security services on 22nd July during last summer’s Oslo bomb and Utoya island massacre of young Labour party activists by Neo-Nazi freemason Anders Breivik. First interpretation into English of elements of the Commission report which show a series of police and state security services’ shortcomings. Were there any policemen or judges in Breivik’s masonic lodges? Why did he only attend Oslo masonic temple for initiation ceremonies and not the rest of the year? How many lodges was he a member of? Discussion of Breivik’s peculiar ideological blend of Zionism and Nazism. Torstein’s flat in central Oslo is only 200 yards from the bombed government building and that day he was out taking pictures.

    This was a terrible decision by ITV
    I can see now that this is the point at which, like others before them, they took the Murdoch Mafia dollar

    • The amazing thing is that so-called TV professionals all seem to agree that Roger Cook ‘took journalism to unacceptable and unethical limits’. That shows the endemic ‘groupthink’ that operates as strongly as ever within the UK mainstream media.
