The BBC's Charter and its Producers Guidelines state:
...'Due impartiality lies at the heart of the BBC. All programs and services should be open minded, fair and show a respect for truth? [BBC reports should] contain comprehensive, authoritative and impartial coverage of news and current affairs in the United Kingdom and throughout the world??
I must confess watching the glee of presenters on ITV last night as they spoke of their almost certainty that the Remainers has won, I felt that this had been the last chance for our society to resolve the EU nightmare peacefully, and our descent into further hell was assured.
My surprise this morning to see that the Leavers had won was overwhelming. Seeing the spirit that had once made our society great coming to the fore was the best news I had heard in the world for at least 20 years.
Perhaps the politicians that will now rise to lead us will finally do something about reigning in the negative influence of the propaganda outlet that is the BBC. They surely will be aware of its influence in a far more negative light than the predecessors.
Today's result gives me some hope for our society, and humanity if it comes to that.
Still frightening to see how many showed they prefer the gilded prison of the EU superstate to true freedom and independence. There's a lot of work to do to WAKE UP these individuals but at least Britain has now made a start, Been a long while since I felt proud of our society - great to feel it today.
Well done Nigel who has been wandering in the desert for so long, and to Boris for having the morality and courage of his supposed leanings unlike so many so called 'Conservatives' who have been anything but.
Now if only Trump can win in the States and undo the mindset of Obamarism.

At present, the BBC is only answerable to itself in deciding its standards and coverage. How does it measure up to what you consider good quality, and impartial and unbiased reporting as required by its charter? All TV viewers in the UK are forced by law to pay for this 'service'. Do you believe that what is received truly 'serves' the society, - or merely increases the problems within it?
