    The state of the country’s ‘establishment’ these days, from government to NGO to media, if there is any inquiry into wrong doing or dodgy practices, the danger is it will need to be called off mid-way as it transpires that less than 50% of those on oversight are NOT tainted by conflict of interest.

      Oh, and this was also … ‘interesting’, in a ‘what exactly is a market rate talent’ sort of way…

      ‘Overseeing casting may not be Jay Hunt’s forte. Humiliated by a tribunal verdict in January, when her BBC1 show Countryfile was found to have discriminated against Miriam O’Reilly by getting rid of her for having too much experience, the Channel 4 chief creative officer last week gallingly saw a presenter for her new broadcaster – the hapless World Athletics Championship frontman Ortis Deley – pulled out mid-event for blatantly having too little experience’

      Not sure too much about what see ON telly any more, but who gets to stick it up there seem about as much use as [OO readers to supply to order].

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
