It is with tedious regularity that we find ourselves addressing here the subject of breaches of accuracy and impartiality guidelines in the programme ‘From Our Own Correspondent’ which is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 (10.97 million listeners per week) and on the BBC World Service (192 million listeners).

In this stunning capture by Stian Klo, we see Høyvika Beach on Andøya, Vesterålen in Northern Norway. Klo captured the beach from a mountain range looking down on the beautiful beach. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find much additional information about the beach and surrounding area.

After searching through Norway’s tourism site, I believe this view can be seen on a coastal trek from Stave to Bleik. The trail stretches over 9km through a landscape of beaches, rocky shorelines, hills and mountains. You can find more information about the hiking trail at VisitNorway.com

He shrugged: Just an ordinary day at Weight Watchers !!

Amnesty for those illegal immigrants among us, called undocumented workers by our political elite even if they do not work and are collecting welfare and other government benefits, disguised under the name of “Path to Citizenship” will be at the heart of the immigration legislation to be considered by the Congress and backed by the President, the Democrats and most of the Progressive Republicans, also referred to as RINOs. Their claim, false as it may be, will be that these undocumented workers are simply honest people here seeking to find a better life for their families and deserve our sympathy for the plight they might face in their homelands and only number a mere eleven million unfortunate souls living in the shadows. If the politicians were to be honest they would be talking about the twenty million plus illegals of which a sizeable percentage are unemployed and collecting government handouts…
