Interesting, anyone work at the Beeb and know if tides are changing?

I suspect that lawsuits / judicial reviews make the lawyers twitchy. As local councils are increasingly starting to withdraw trans guidance that gaslights children and removes legal rights and the NHS does a reverse ferret with their puberty blocker guidance, there seems to be a growing awareness that these organisations are not all they appear to be.

Not before time.

I think there is a storm brewing..

There definitely does seem to be something in the air.

It has been removed - but if you follow the link to the NHS and look for children’s support - it’s still there.

Perhaps we should look at who has responsibility for the information relayed on the NHS site?

This is to do with impartiality I think. Mermaids seems to be political and BBC having to redress balances, not only on this topic.

Beeb have had to acknowledge they got it wrong but didn't change any reporting styles until Tory win in December which took the wind right out of their sails. They have been very bad during pandemic too with masses of complaints.

Auntie having a re-think, should see more soon. Thinks they've realised that it's best the NHS takes the shit storm

I agree with Wolfgirl.

I'd also like the BBC to remove the "over 100 genders" nonsense and both 'I am Leo' programmes from iplayer
