Campbell vs Boulton Round III

The weekday lunchtime Boulton & Co news show has started this week, it has a lot of that U.S. style presenters walking around talking to each other stuff, news, interviews and a bit of chat. So far it has had no fireworks. The first reactions suggest that it could do with a bit more pace and excitement. That is what the producers must have in mind bringing Alastair onto the show with Adam this afternoon. Will it kick off again?

Will Adam miss the open-goal presented by Campbell now finally admitting he was behind thepsychologically flawed line about Brown that he denied over and over again. Will Adam hold him to account over his lying?

          I thought Boulton was quite *refreshed* also. maybe that is why Sky have him on Sunday morning and weekday lunchtime shift. Teatime broadcasting can be tricky.

            All the journos were in the pubs as chaos reigned and no-one knew who was in coalition with who.

            The difference is most of the TV talking heads knew they would be updating every 20 minutes so weren’t laying into the sauce like Boulton was.

            His ruddy cheeked ranting and swaying are pure bar-room hilarity.

        It’s easy to wind people up.

        The way to do it (wind Campbell up) is not to ask him questions but simply do as he (Campbell) does. So Boulton simply states a simple fact (say) ‘Labour destroyed the economy’. Immediately Campbell will start off with some diversionary BS. At which point you cut him off and then state another fact (say) ‘And your lies contributed directly to the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi men women and children. And Dr Kelly.’

        Repeat until Campbell starts spitting teeth and foaming at the mouth.

        Dead easy.

      Baroness Warsi is wrong to think thak anti-Muslim feeling is the only permitted bigotry. The rural community are regularly subject to stupidity from the so-called intelligensia over their pastimes and occupations – hunting (even Bliar admitted that they got that badly wrong), oppressive gun laws aimed at making much necessary rural work impossible, farmers paid to be park-keepers and expected to welcome any idiot with a badly-trained pooch onto their land during lambing. Anybody who knows North Wales knows that there is a minority of bigots determined to ruin any business run by an English person, and display appalling bigotry toward anybody speaking English. There’s quite a bit of anti-Scottish bigotry on this blog, often enough.
