    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].

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
