Watch: This Explains the New Daily Politics Mug

It’s amazing what turns up on a DVD that you find down the back of a sofa at Annabel’s:

Brillo and Co. are launching the new Daily Politics and Sunday show next week, which is said to have a Newsnight style politically balanced pundit panel. They are keeping the pundits under wraps…

Guido notes with some interest that Osborne’s biographer and Economist hack Janan Ganesh has just started tweeting, as has the Sunday Times’ Political Editor Isabel Oakshott. The Labour Party councillor and Guardian writer Rowenna Davis  has also upped her twitter game recently. Could they be preparing for some regular debate?

          “hope the progamme isn’t cr*p”

          Will it be crap? The answer to that question is the same as the answer to the next question:

          “is it going to be on the BBC?”

            And BBC could not do it as reality is not in their DNA.

    All guests are PPE grads with no real-world experience, and massive misplaced sense of importance/ability verging on Dunning Kruger.

      Although I don’t know who I am, I agree with you.

      Out of interest, I wonder what those titles cost to produce. It’s not as if they’re in ANY way relevant to political discussion.

      Why not just start each show with a photo of Parliament and a voiceover saying, “And now a programme featuring political discussion.” And save about £50,000.

      One week later they all resigned and left. One is a drug lord, one a major pimp, one food chain manager, one a rap artist, and the fifth went to become a President of the United States.

I am not one of those individuals on this blog who never improve their postings by learning to spell, capitalise, punctuate, and paragraph correctly. Not a piss-take, CRMM, thank you for your constructive criticism in past, and I only hope I can approach your consistent high quality. Now, if only some others whom I COULD name, but won’t, will follow my lead, we’d all be happy.

          • In amongst all the drivel I have written, I have a piece on the five or six posters that I regard as superlative here. I have never published it but it would not be difficult to guess their names.

            They are each special to me for completely different reasons. I do not even in some cases agree with every word they write but still admire them for the way in which they compose their contributions.

            The only thing that stops me from pressing submit comment is that I feel I can improve upon their characterisation. It is difficult to describe people whom, with a single exception, I have not met.

            So thank you for your kind if overgenerous words. On the subject of spelling and syntax I can only borrow from that skilled wordsmith in saying I could not fail to disagree with you less.

    So the BBC is left wing. What the organisation run by public schoolboys, it’s head is an ‘ex-Tory’, it clings onto it’s religious obligation (Christian and not much else) with every fibre of it’s being, it’s only moving to the regions because it was forced to and looks down on the rest of the countries that aren’t England. Don’t even get me started on the 3 Tory bias on QT.

          In the interest of showing that which wasn’t revealed in court about Duwayne – ran away and didn’t see but now did see and, incidentally has received £100,000 (taxpayers money) I am told:-

          October 1993 Surrendered voluntarily to Bexleyheath police station, where he was charged under section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act, relating to an allegation of violent disorder at a British National party march. Eventually the proceedings were stayed on December 13 1994 after the judge ruled an abuse of process. The judge had invited the CPS to discontinue the case
          earlier, but it refused to do so.

          May 27 1998 Police requested an interview about an allegation of kidnapping at Catford station. He was bailed until July 23 when police announced that they were taking no further action.

          July 8 1998 Stopped under the Prevention of Terrorism Act in the City of London. Searched and arrested for possession of a knife and theft of a credit card. Bailed from the police station and when he returned on August 4 was charged with possession of an offensive weapon. The action was discontinued in September.

          July 4 1999 Stopped by police in in his car, which was searched. A photocopying tool was found (he works as a photocopying engineer). Police alleged it was an offensive weapon and charged him with possession of a bladed article. They also found credit cards and chequebooks in the car and
          he was arrested for handling stolen goods. He was bailed to appear before Tower Bridge magistrates. The case was discontinued on August 3.

          August 17 1999 Arrested in Peckham, south London, for taking and driving away a car and threatening behaviour. Taken to Peckham police station and bailed until August 6, when police notified him that they were taking no further action.

          September 16 1999 Arrested and charged with attempted rape and indecent assault. Originally refused bail by police and court. Finally bailed on September 29 on condition he resided in Birmingham. At his committal hearing on November 5 police announced they had dropped the charge of attempted rape. Yesterday an Old Bailey judge threw out the case as an abuse of process.

      2) The disproportionate amount of said crime, taking into account the differences in populations.

      3) The deafening silence from the Black/Asian communities about said crimes.

      Yes I can see the analogy . The fact that Alex Ferguson had already won many trophies with a relatively small club like Aberdeen including The European Cup Winners cup where he tested his wits at the highest level with some of the best teams in Europe including Real Madrid whom they beat in the final showed he had a good track record and was worth persevering with.
      Similarly with Milliband….er…..well actually come to think of it

      Some Geezer wot knows analogies are arguments that obfuscate as well as illuminate says:

      Comparing Sir Alex Ferguson and Ed Miliband fails on so many levels, but let’s just take one: Ferguson was a player of some ability who demonstrated his grasp of the game by the way he played it, before he was ever promoted into management. Has Ed Miliband ever been shown to have a grasp of ANYTHING, besides his willy?

    I just can not nelieve what I am hearing and watching on BBC Panorama.

    They are saying that because a Lady copper straight at the scene thought lawrence had been hit by his mate means the whole police force is racist.

    For goodness sake BBC she was out of her depth, probably shit scared and most certainly not racist. No doubt the initial response was bad, but that is what happens in real life. People fuck up.

    Blimey. Stephen Lawrence is the new Diana! You can’t query this unsupportable verdict anywhere. Getting deleted left right and centre, and have been called a racist prick, screeching racist… just for suggesting that if the guy running the forensics investigation *warned* that the evidence might be cross contaminated then… it might be cross contaminated. Those two fellers *might* be guilty, but the evidence given in that trial does not support a guilty verdict.

      Yep afraid so. The BBC and the Guardian have decided that the evidence was conclusive and the plod are institutionalised racists

      At the end of the day the only convicting evidence was one blood spot on one jacket. The truth is no one knows who killed Lawrence except those involved.

      Anyone know the Ethnicity of the Jury?

        Colonel Blimp says:

        But the point Frank Fisher makes is perfectly correct the forensic evidence presented does not on its own if properly weighed support the conviction.

        In any other case this would not have been allowed to happen.

        Also in order to have this show trail they binned the old legal protection rule of Double Jeopardy. Now anyone can be charged and tried over and over again until the correct verdict is reached. Just like European Union referendums.

        I do however believe that the scum bags are guilty, its just not been legitimately proved and a form of rough justice has taken place.

            “POMO made this a racist crime and manufactured evidence”

            Quite right. Apart from the suspects changing their story about their alibis, the father of one of them being a notorious gangster who paid off bent coppers, and the surviving victim of the attack seeing the assailants. Oh, and the surveillance footage which showed the suspects calling bl*cks “rubber lipped Hunts” and saying how they’d love to kill every bl*ck person by torturing them, skinning them alive, setting them alight and cutting off their arms and legs. Nothing racist about that at all. It was just made a racist crime. It’s all a conspiracy to bring down decent honest hardworking lads. Oh, wait, they’re actually living off benefits, as this infamous communist rag reports: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-397812/How-suspects-enjoyed-liberty.html

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
