23rd July, BBC News reports:
Two Muslim women have claimed they were refused a bus ride because one had her face covered by a veil. They said that when they presented their tickets, the driver told them they were a "threat" to passengers and ordered them off the bus. The firm has started an "urgent" investigation because The Muslim Council of Britain said it was "deeply concerned".
(oh, and the report also includes a handy BBC graphic showing the 7 different types of Islamic female garb. How fucking considerate of them)
Anyhow, elsewhere in the real world, it appears that the actual chain of events is more than a little different to the BBC version ....
Yesterday, London Evening Standard reports:
A bus driver accused by two students of banning them because of their Islamic dress has been cleared after CCTV showed he had actually barred them for their abusive behaviour.
On-board CCTV of the incident, showed the women banging on the front doors and attempting to board the bus when it had come to the end of its run. They then get on through the rear doors and begin arguing with the driver. They get off and wait for the bus to start its journey back to Paddington - but another exchange follows, and the driver refuses to set off unless they disembark.
Well, just fancy that, no fucking trace of that version of events to be found anywhere on the BBC News website and no mention of the outcome of the investigation either.
Yet more proof, if any were needed, that the BBC have their own agenda and if the truth gets in the way of that, then ....... just lie.
