A BBC employee who fully supports that organisation’s philosophy and aims. It is more or less de rigeur that a Beeboid is
- for multi-culturalism
- pro-Labour party
- against the Conservatives or Lib-Con coalition
- critical of Israel
- pro-Democrat, and fanatically pro-Obama
- a believer that global warming due to human activity is 100% proven .
- fiercely protective of Islam
- highly critical of Christianity
- in favour of an legal or social status gays may wish to demand
- is for mass-immigration and believes anybody wishing to limit it is a racist
- believes capitalism is bad, while socialism is good
- defends any jihadi derelict washed up on Britain’s shores, should the human rights industry decide to take up his case
- believes Rupert Murdoch is the incarnation of the devil
- for public spending ( which produces growth), the NHS, abortion, drug law liberalisation - you name the leftist cause
- a believer that in cases of military conflict, the BBC should be strictly impartial in reporting about both our side and those who wish to kill our troops. In wars the Beeboid disapproves of, reporting should be restricted to casualty figures and anything that might look like bad behaviour on the part of our servicemen.
- doubtful that a Beeboid should have enough acquaintance with military affairs to know when he is giving away vital information to the enemy.
Whenever I point out an example of bias to their complaints department, I never know whether it is a Beeboid or an automatic answering device that’s sending back the message: ’On the whole, we think we got it about right.’
(sometimes written as two words: 'green inker') A member of the green ink brigade: in British journalistic circles, these are crackpots who write letters to the editors of newspapers or to celebrities, highlighting important words and phrases by using different coloured (typically green) ink. They may also write the whole letter in a coloured ink.
A famous novelist, read the first line of a letter, which began 'Lynda, you rotten swine..' and thought: "Oh no, a greeninker!" but reading on she realised it was a friend expressing mock jealousy over a recent success of hers.
