Internal Beeb Blow by Blow Account

The BBC internal wires are circulating this account of how last night’s Joyce episode began. Look North reporter Joe Inwood’s report has worked its way into Guido’s inbox:

  • Andrew Percy MP was hosting an event for the Speaker of the Canadian Parliament, at which Stuart Andrew MP was a guest.
  • The night had progressed, and the speaker (and family) had left.
  • Eric Joyce was also in the bar, and was having a conversation with Alec Shelbrooke MP.
  • Andrew Percy had gone to the bar and on his way back asked to get past AS and EJ.
  • EJ was then heard (by eye witness) to say something along the “no you can’t. I’m fed up with this place. It’s full of f###ing Tories.”
  • Somehow this confrontation ended with Andrew Percy being pushed to a wall.
  • At this point Stuart Andrew stood up and told him (EJ) to stop.
  • IT IS ALLEGED THAT At this point EJ then grabbed SA by the tie, pushing him up against a wall.
  • AP had gone to get the police, who promptly surrounded Joyce, although did not restrain him.
  • Eric Joyce IS SAID TO HAVE objected to his treatment, saying they could not do this to an MP.
  • IT IS CLAIMED THAT he then, whilst surrounded by police launched himself at SA, head butting him and punching him.

And the rest they say is history.

They go on to confirm that this window was broken during Joyce’s removal.

Tomorrow we might write about something else…

    So is the nation. I’m sure the readership of this blog will gladly club together to buy Mr Joyce a one-way Ryanair flight out of the country.

    All I will say, though, is that one should hate the game – and not the player. Play the Ball and not the Man.

    I daresay I would find many of the people commenting despicable people, but that doesn’t mean that I would argue anything but policy with them.

    If Mr Joyce wants the house to be full of anything but Tories, I suggests he tries to reform his party away from kneejerk actions and towards peaceful, ethical governance.

    The events as stated cannot be true as the BBC has certainly not been giving out any of this “internal” news to its customers and tax paying funders except that Joyce is to be “charged next month” (on 3 accounts – only stated once).
    The World at One with Shaun Laye also pretended it did not know of the existance of the campaign by the Socialist Worker’s Party’s attempt to disupt the Work to Welfare campaign. When confronted with this they later stated the person involved admitted to being in the party but that his campaign had wider support outside the party – more than likely from the unions, Labour Party, and the BBC.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
