      it’s a good job this woman is not a real journalist

      i guess she will use this as evidence of being worked too hard

        What Ms. Flanders really needs is an early retirement, but not just to bed.

          IDIOT, typifies the reason Women got the VOTE. What Fu-king Democracy. The Disney Land Democracy for Fools giving a mandate to the Political Elite who dont stick to their Manifesto AS THEY ARE NOT IN CHARGE. We will be seeing a lot more. Democracy my Arse.

        UKIPMAN says:

        And here we have the BBC trying to blame our boom and bust on King and the BoE instead of Gordon Brown.

        My comment:

        “Surely you mean Brown’s boom and bust?The attempts of the BBC to distance Brown from all responsibility over his ‘willful blindness’ regarding the banks are becoming far too obvious.”

          jgm2 says:

          Indeed no mention at all of King alluding to the removal of powers froim the bank by the Maximum Imbecile in 1997.

          No mention of the six months prior to the bailout when the banks and Mervyn were begging for loans to be made available. Nope. Brown, rather than lending the banks money at a commercial rate saw the opportunity to blame them for his economic incompetence. And took it.

          Rage Against the Political Elite. says:

          Capitalist economy has been under attack for the last 30 yrs as the STATE has educated the fools to work for the Quango Cancers perpetrated on Private business and lives. Continual Deregulation of the banking system in the 80’s through to the new millenium
          The Phoney WAR on Drugs the Wars in IRAQ and Afghanistan employing the hundreds of thousands in the PUBLIC sector with NO commercial benefit. UK Climate fraud and Energy Policy, the Over TAX of everyone and every private transaction. No wonder the country is Fu-ked, and as The State continue to pump up the PONZI scheme,. borrowing £480 million a day to prop it up. HOW the Fu-k do they think its going to get Better. Crazy economics from a Mentally broken economic system perpetrated on us by the out of control ELITE.

        Steph’s calendar is just about as accurate as her “economic” reporting. She should be put out to grass along with all the other useless bird-brain bimbos who haunt the news desks at the BBC.

          Airey Belvoir says:

          The poor girl has never been quite right in the head since her early sexual traumas at the hands of the Milibands and Ed Balls. She needs sympathy and counselling.


          • I hate Tesco AND the Pope says:

            She fucked ED BALLS? Please say this isn’t so. I heard about the Miliblands, but this is a legover too far, as well as backing up Guido’s suspicion that she isn’t quite the sharpest harpie in the BBC gene pool.


          • Mars Attacks says:

            Yep – her “lady garden” is like the water around the Belgrano 30 years ago yesterday – swimming with enemy semen.

        Soon to be Bust Tax Payer says:

        Of course not even what passed to ‘social mobility’ 30 years ago has now ended. The elites have ensured that all the key parts of the media, politics and finance are within a small circle of familes and their fuck buddies. This applies even more so at the BBC


  4. 4

    So now we know why she’s told us, as fact, at least half a dozen times, that the Euro crisis was finally solved. She’s as thick as fucking shit.

    Just for the record – as the media appear to be telling us that all internet abuse is misogynist these days – I’m not calling her thick as fucking shit because she’s a woman, but because she’s thick as fucking shit.

    Most of us have been metaphysically fucked by the two Eds – this silly bint has literally had it happen to her.

    Just been round to cast my vote for Boris. Hate Cameron but I think Boris has done a good job in London and is infinitely better than the whining, tax-dodging, divisive, identity politician that is Ken Livingstone

      A lot of Londoners will be holding their noses today and voting for the man, not the Party. Minaret Hamlets will be voting both early and often and by post.

      GWF Hegel says:

      I’m still pondering the implications of being metaphysically f*cked.

      Is it that Ed Balls thinks: what it would be like to f*ck us all or is he thinking, “if there were anyone there, would I f*ck them ?”

      Quite likely he turns over and Yvette gives it to him hard with the strap-on.

      jgm2 says:

      The Maximum Imbecile does get a couple of mentions…

      However, he claimed the Bank was hamstrung by the decision to move regulation to the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in 1997


      In a veiled attack on Labour and the FSA, he also revealed that he had pushed for a major recapitalisation of the industry in early 2008 but been rejected because “it wasn’t a popular message”.

      “From the beginning of 2008, we at the Bank began to argue that UK banks needed extra capital – a lot of extra capital, possibly £100bn or more,”

      The BBC, because of the unique way it’s funded, didn’t think these little tit-bits worth rep*eating.

          Yep. That’s why he kept his gob shut. he knew that no matter what he did. Shout from the rooftops, resign in horror, whatever – that Brown and the Labour machine would simply trash his reputation, steal his pension on some pretext or other and then ship in some other gimp like ohhh, David Blanchflower to rubber stamp the imbecility.

          King figured it might as well be him with the pension, knighthood, after-dinner speeches etc etc as Blanchflower.

Alert State Red operates at the first hint of his participation in a programme (“And now, over to Robert Peston”) and my lightning reaction (the only one I have, but finely tuned and frequently exercised in his honour) comes into play, and he is barred from my hearing even before he’s started drawling down the nearest microphone. If I never achieve anything else, this ludicrous clown of a reporter has been erased from my otherwise miserable life, and long may it remain so.

    I love her, and love the fact that she can be so honest in her self-deprecating follow-up tweet.

    Are you guys trying to tell me that you’ve NEVER EVER got days muddled up, you’ve never put the wheelie bins out on the wrong day, you’ve never tuned in for PMQs only to realise it’s not wednesday, you’ve never woken up in a panic thinking you’re late for work and then realised it was Saturday?
    Gimme a break…it’s so easy for everyone to say “what a fucking idiot” etc
    Personally, I find her tweet to be quite amusing…outrage about polling stations being closed followed by the McFly moment that, duuhhhh, it’s not thursday.

    Of course, if it was Yvette or Harman who had done this, I’d be one of the first ones to say “what a stupid kaaaaaaa’nt”….so maybe it’s actually cos I like Stephanie….

    now I’m all confused…

Mind you, she’s in good company with the anodyne Turnbull and the mentally challenged Susanna Reid (she of the plunging necklines and rising hemlines).

    Muslims are required by their religion to collect a special tax from infidels living in their countries. They call this tax “jizzya”.

    Ms Flanders figures very highly on my list of top totty, so I will not hear a word against her, even if she works for the BBC. I can’t understand why she stays at the Beeb – far too intelligent and probably has to bite her lip every time some cretin autocue reader asks her to explain what quantitative easing means.

    I turned up for work at the BBC but I found that the Tories had closed it down in 2014. Anyone else had this problem?

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!
