    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].

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
