BBC Told to Cut Diane Abbott Appearances

The BBC Trust has ruled that Diane Abbott should appear less frequently on Andrew Neil’s This Week programme. The Beeb‘s editorial standards committee also found that the £6,700 Abbott has pocketed from them was against their guidelines as politicians paid to speak on BBC shows are not allowed to “express political views“.

If it means Diane won’t be appearing on Guido’s TV screen as often in the future then that really is cause for celebration…

    Shouldn’t the fat lump be forced to spend some of her ill-gotten £6,700 on health clinics; ie losing much of that blubber she carries around? perhaps then, and only then, might she be regarded seriously when ponitiffcating on health matters!

    Thing is, Abbott is just a moronic, racist imbecile with the intelligence of a spastic goose and the common sense of Rachel Corrie.(for Christs sake will Abbot just go stand in front of a bulldozer)

    Surely her appearance do not actual count as political because she is actually just a giant fuckwit and impossible to actually take seriously?

    Hmm, then again I suppose because she is a giant fuckwit, and a Labour fuckwit, it is political because she just emphasises all that is wrong with Labour.

    I am happy to correct myself there.

    Will she give the money back?

    Well, more than already.

    By the by, speaking of the padawans, is the BBC Anger and Protests Editor back from his extended hols yet? His last posting mentioned flying but is gathering cobwebs.

    One presumes he’s off dancing around a pyre of burning books with the rest of the NUT high command?

    Diane Abbott spouts rubbish most of the time, so she’s no loss to This Week. Thankful her son is at Oxbridge so she doesn’t have to fund those pesky fees for her son’s education at one of the top independent schools.

    Big loss to the Tories. They should suggest she should continue on the show without receiving licence fee payers money .

    Cash in the Lean To is good wholesome viewing and, to be superb, needs only to feature Yeo and a few others more often.

    Is this the same woman who told a black woman to know her place and to effectively shut up ?
    Is this the same woman who is an enforcer for racial apartheid in this country by ensuring that black people do not wholly integrate with whites by ensuring that they “stick together” and not deviate from the agreed line as voiced by the self appointed “spokespeople” and who publicly castigated another black woman for suggesting otherwise ?

    Maybe she could be replaced by Tim Yeo? It would be poetic irony to replace a more than usually self-serving and hypocritical politician from one party, a living advertisement for why not to vote for that party, with another from the opposing party but of the same ilk. On the other hand, Abbott can at least be very entertaining and goes rather well with a surfeit of Blue Nun, which is not a description you could ever in a million years apply to Yeo, so overall I think it would be a bad trade.

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.”
