Craig Oliver’s Late Night Lobby Briefing

Nick Robinson’s glamorous producer Thea Rogers has hit the headlines before, this could get interesting too:

Rogers also graced the pages of Vogue recently, offering top tips:

“There’s also an overnight bag at hand for impromptu trips. ‘I never know where the day’s news might lead’.”

      I don’t see why unless you’re a limp-dumb with a strange sexual habit. All taxation is evil don’t pay your tax for benefit spongers and other parasites.

      It’s still the economy stupid.

      Its not politics or a talent contest.

      It’s managing government resources to produce the results that the electorate require.

      Lets try to keep our government on track.

        BBC BIAS ???

        I woke up this morning – Radio 4 News – I listened – and became aware that the Conservative Conference was not even mentioned –

        I turned on the TV – BBC News – still none !

        I went back to the Today programme – NOTHING – every subject discussed was padded-out – even the Sports slot at 7.25 was on time – with Humphries interrupting asking the in-studio cricketer how tall he was! It was unreal!

        I asked my wife – what day was it? Did Cameron give his speech yesterday? Has anyone mentioned him and the word ‘aspiration’ today?

        It was as though it hadn’t happened

        Last week we had wall-to-wall Ed Moribund – non-stop – breaking news – rolling news – the BBC made it news.

        The last reference to thr Conservative conference was last night – Matthew Parris – answering the question posed by the BBC interviewer – “Which of the three speeches will be remembered?”

        I’m sure someone will complain (again) to the BBC Trust

          But why would a leftie Labour mouthpiece organisation want to broadcast anything about the Tories ?

          The Tories would be better off having no connection with an organisation that has a culture of child abuse going back 40 years.

        It is understandable that she wouldn’t want to have a double barrelled name like this for example: Thea Rogers-Craig.

          Aunty Matter says:

          Don’t worry the BBC have forgotten Jimmy Savile worked for them for 40 years and they supplied his with 12 year old girls to abuse.

          I believe the word Cesspit sums up the BBC.

          • Anonymous says:

            I think a lot more will be revealed at the BBC it is not possible that people didnt know what was going on. In the broader context, what on earth was he doing as a Porter at Broadmoor and Leeds Hospital.The opportunities there are mind boggling.

      Isn’t Craig Oliver married to BBC presenter Joanna Gosling and has 3 kids? Cheating on your wife with her co-worker – modern Tory values I guess.

    The Tit in No 10 (there’s others on the pages of Vog don’t cha know) says:

    Never having done a useful days’ work in my life entitles me to tell other people to work harder!

    And Thea certainly works hard for her crust. What?

    Thea Rogers says:

    Sometimes it used to take all night to fetch Nick out from Gordon Browns arsehole.
    It was like birthing a new born calf,except with more shit.

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    According to his wiki entry Oliver is married to BBC News presenter Joanna Gosling. Should make for interesting scenes when the delectable Thea arrives back at Television Centre.

    She’s also shagged James Purnell so obviously not too good at cleaning the flat.

      Mornington Crescent says:

      Ye G0ds, what with Stephanie Filanderers shagging her way around the Labour party, the BBC really is a fucking cesspit. In fact, it’s professional incest.

      its as though the BBC became the equivalent of a 19th century freak show

      as in the case of NewsCorpse – giving the public what it wants

    Guido – this is just girl shags bloke – so what, move on. Seriously, it’s just prurient voyeurism.

    I am reminded of a quote by Martin Amis (I think):

    Topless models look as if you could have them whenever you wanted. Fashion models look as if they could have you whenever they wanted.

      My good friend Prof Phil Actic advises that a regular emptying of ones ‘overnight bag’ is to be recommended…come prepared (ahem!!).

    Spank Sinatra says:

    Not sure whether ‘glamorous’ is the appropriate adjective. And who is the ‘overnight bag’ who is always ‘at hand’?

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    Let us keep sex out of politics if you please .

    The magnitude of the expenses that that slimey Socialist Mitterand posted to the taxpayer for his mistress and love child is truly truly disgusting .

    Was that an overnight shag?

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.”
