Remembering Robinson

Nick Robinson will be reflecting on his career at the Frontline Club tonight. The invitation reads like some sort of pre-death obituary:

“Showing clips of his work and the work of those journalists who inspired him, Nick Robinson will be remembering the significant milestones in a career that includes stints on On the Record, Panorama and 14 years on the politics beat.”

Ever keen to help out, Guido thought he would dig out one such siginifcant career milestone:

No doubt his famed “David Miliband has won” clip will be played too, right?

        THAT is the answer to it all!! Yes, just rename the series after some fictitious village in Grenada or Jamaica. And then we can all complain that there are no white faces in the cast. Simple. Boy am I a genius or what?

    Give it 30 seconds and the tame nulab troll ( The other one, not Toenails himself ), will be along to post that he used to belong to the YC’s and therefore the bbc is biased in favour of the Tories !

    “The curse of Robinson strikes again. Barely 24 hours after this:

    BBC News political editor Nick Robinson says the reshuffle will be very limited and not a “dramatic shifting of the chairs at the top table”.

    We’ve seen the return of a former Cabinet minister who has resigned twice before in disgrace*, the return of a former Foreign Secretary (Margaret Beckett), the departure of two Cabinet ministers (one of which, Des Browne, appears to be forced), the creation of an entirely new ministry and a new chief whip. Make no mistake, this is a major reshuffle.

    And what does Mystic Nick have to say about this?

    “I’m gobsmacked.””

        The funniest report on Today this morning concerned the Essex “travellers” who don’t appear to want to travel anymore. Their apologist was given an easy ride and allowed to promote the idea that “travellers” should be allowed to avoid the same planning rules that council tax payers have to abide by.

    Gosh Nick, do you remember those dodgy expense claims, the laughs we had dreaming up events and people to claim for drinks travel and lunches.
    Oh what fun.

    What a load of sanctimonious claptrap these hacks engage in. The man’s useless with an overflated ego.

      My dear boy, he’s a very dnagerous fool, as he has bought into the Marxist-Leninist/Trotsky flim-flam scheme (brainwashed at birth by his father) and believes all the rot about social ownership, destruction of capitalism, and the state being in total control of everything.
      Like all of his ilk he seeks a client state by creating welfare dependancy and ensuring that the proletariat are ill-educated so cannot understand their feudal position, and provided they get their modern day version of bread and circuses will not kick up.
      So he had better change his attitude to smokes and drinkies as that will lose him his blind unthinking and unswerving supporters.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
