The BBC's new multi-million pound television news studio has been built to be bomb proof to protect journalists from suicide attacks.

The news room sits in a bunker under the main reception at the £1billion New Broadcasting House.

Staff have been assured they would be protected from a blast should a suicide bomber walk through the front door at the central London facility.

isn't that ironic, a news outlet, which between them all are largely responsible for inventing the "threat of Terrorism", believing their own propaganda. I think Doktor Goebbels would make a wry smile at this.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Hmmm, I think it is a smart idea, but if you're not in it when the bomb goes off it is not going to do much good.

I am so pleased I no longer pay a t.v licence to them.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Well, guess that is what my license fee went too this year.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Do they have nothing better to do round there, like catch criminals?

Why would the BBC be worried about that? they have to be one of the most pro-muslim organizations in the country.
