Awkward Savile EDM From 2011

Hindsight is a wonderful thing…

Ian Paisley Jr Drags Andrew Marr Into BBC Sex Culture Row

“Just a matter of weeks we had one of their senior ‘talent’ caught in photographs in the grips of a young woman with his hands down her trousers in a public place and gets away with it with nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders and a silly excuse. Is the culture really changing? Has it really changed?”

Ouch…

Quote of the Day

Prime Minister Cameron on the threat…

“Iran is not just a threat to Israel. It is a threat to the world.”

Entwistle Will Face Parliament Next Week

George Entwistle will go in front the Culture Media and Sport Select Committee next week. The Director General of the BBC will be grilled on the whole Savile issue, but most dangerously for him will be the questions about the then Director of Vision’s involvement in pulling the now infamous Newsnight report in 2011. With Mensch jetting off and Tom Watson quitting  as well as Therese Coffey and Damian Collins getting promoted, the CMS is sparsely populated right now. Bradshaw has replaced Watson and only Conor Burns has expressed an interest so far for the Tories. Popcorn time…

UPDATE:

PICTURE: Mitchell Surfaces on Green Benches

He lives. In the literal sense at least…

UPDATE: Labour are having some fun tomorrow. The Telegraph reports:

“Labour will tomorrow table a motion calling for his salary to be docked by £1,000, a sum similar to the amount he could have been fined had the police arrested him for breach of the peace – which at one stage in the altercation they threatened to do. Under Section 5 of the Public Order Act, anyone convicted of a public order offence can be fined between 50 per cent and 125 per cent of their weekly income by magistrates. Mr Mitchell earns £79,000 as Chief Whip on top of his MPs’ wage of £65,738. The unusual move by Labour puts Mr Mitchell in the unfortunate position of having to decide whether or not to order his party’s MPs to oppose the motion in a formal vote in the House of Commons.”

Perhaps the Home Office might finally get behind the Reform Section 5 campaign now…

Parliament Can Strip Savile of His Knighthood

Parliament have done it before and they can do it again. Naysayers in the Civil Service and the Palace say that it is not possible to strip a dead man of his title but that’s not quite true. Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham, was executed in 1521 for treason but he did not forfeit his titles until 1523, two years after his death. All this “attainder by process” required was an Act of Parliament. Problem solved…

Caption Contest Winner

Last week’s caption contest winner was, for once, actually quite witty. “Denis McShane’s Shed” suggested:

“Heckler and C**k.”
