Robinson’s 10 O’Clock Hiccup

To Liverpool’s Gusto restaurant on Tuesday night where the great and good of the BBC political team were loudly dining. Guido’s scouser eyes and ears spotted the full house of  Nick Robinson, Laura Kuenssberg, Jon Sopel and James Landsdale.

Having told  the waiter that he couldn’t drink anymore because he had to go to work, Robinson darted out at 9.50 to do his piece for the 10 o’clock news, but not before speaking with Laura, furiously scribbling down what she said. 10 minutes later her phone rings and she leapt up and went outside. Apparently it was Nick on the phone asking what he should say, hic, again…

    Nick is lost now that Labour spin doctors aren’t there to tell him what to say……….

    And this little lot of liebour lefties are causing our imposed license fee tax to be so high. Scrap the license fee and sack these hoons. Has either of them made any significant contribution to the news or journalism? I think not. Time for the BBC to be privatised and the license fee to be scrapped, most people can not afford the license tax and those who can don’t want to watch these incompetent tossers.

    P. Doff says:

    And Labour are also lost when they still have to rely on people like Nick Robinson to re-promote their past ideals.

    Nick: Yes indeed Jon I have it on the best authority from a source extremely close to me and in confidence that an extremely senior source known to myself that there is a typhoon of speculation rising tonight in Liverpool near to the LibDem Conference and indeed may even be happening as we speak”
    Jon: There have been rumours of course,Nick throughout the evening
    Nick: Yes indeed Jon but I was unable to confirm that until just a few minutes before coming on air
    Jon: Not unexepected of course given the events of the evening, Nick ?
    Nick: No indeed Jon and now back to the studio
    Jon:Thank you Nick

    The Conservative party still declares its devotion to the BBC. There has to be a connection there somewhere. I am reluctant to think its a financial link, purely on grounds of practicality. The BBC must be important to the political classes for the veneer of legitimacy it gives them.

    As license payer I’m bound to ask: where does the Beeb find them? As a generation of news hounds paid to get sound information to the tax payer they are just totally incompetent. They even expect us to ‘respect’ the comfy rules they play under- for e.g. never recognising M.P.s were ripping us off at every opportunity for decades. How could they miss that?
    Has the Beeb been fit for purpose in the last 20 years?

    Sack the lot of them, and open up the news to proper free competition.

    They are a direct result of Conservative grammer school system allowing low life know norts from leftie backgrounds to attain a decent level of education.

    They are one of the unfortunate consequences of allowing lefties to gain learning.

    Er… why does it take FOUR highly paid hacks to cover the conference. Half that number would do and why not just edit the video for highlights on the ten o’clock news.

    Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill! Oh…. sorry forgot! They have to have at least four so that they can milk it!!

    Yes, yes sorry…… should have realised that they need to have at least four “Journalists” and two film crews and the drivers, lighting men, sound recordists, make up woman, producer, director, electrician, runner, tea boy and Old Uncle Tom Cobbleigh to bring us an oh so slightly biased and truncated version of world events.

    Come on Guido, how about a FoI request for the expenses for their “editorial meeting” at the Gusto Restaurant? Why there anyway, MacDonalds or a Little Chef would have done just as well?

    As someone who isn’t a licence payer, I’m bound to ask: why do you pay it ? Low lifes like Toenails were quite prepared to hide the fact that Kennedy was a known dypso and brown was probably certifiable and utterly incapable of acting in anything other than his own perceived best interest.
    If you pay the licence fee , you are rewarding the dishonesty and utter lack of integrity of so called impartial bbc staff.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
