Adam Boulton Responds to Conrad’s Jackass Jibe


  1. 1
    The public says:

    Nope, it’s a meaningless story.

    Like to try again?

    Nullbymouth says:

    Does it smell funny?

    How to sign a petition in Persian. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww566ivnICU&list=UUGZcA3QdsO1LWrKhtjck5oA … via @youtube

    Kebab Time says:

    I read somewhere that Lord Black will be taking his seat in the House of Lords.

    How apt

      Aunty Matter says:

      He’d not have had the balls to say that to Kay Burley, she’d have kicked him senseless.

      Technomist says:

      That was very poor interviewing. That could have been such a better exchange and so much more informative if Mr Boulton had not been so hostile.

        I Remember You Hoo says:

        Boulton took his ‘attack’ lines and aggressive attitude, almost verbatim from Paxman. British media elite with an agenda? Looks like it.


  6. 6
    Aunty Matter says:

    Who the fuck is Conrad Black and why should I care? Did he know Jimmy Savile?


  7. 8
    Ed Miliband (Prime Minister designate) says:

    YouGov latest: For the 1st time since the GE 2010 Labour lead the Conservatives on the economy – Lab 28% Con 26%

      Aunty Matter says:

      Isn’t that like asking who sees better Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder?


    • 14
      Socialism is a severe mental illness says:

      Employment – up
      crime – down
      government borrowing – down
      Hospital waiting lists – down

      Does Miliband have a policy to deal with this incessant bad news?

        Old Tory Bigot says:

        Yes it’s called the BBC/Guardian axis

          Jethro says:

          20 Being without my specs at the moment, I misread the last word, for one with a different vowel from the ‘I’, and another consonant than ‘x’ … it still made surprisingly good sense.
          Then again, I did once misread a headline – possibly in Conrad Black’s days – as asserting ‘Democrat Senators Defecating over Clinton’, when all it said, was ‘defecting’

      Snaplegs says:

      What was the question – Who do you think could fuck up the economy quickest given the current circumstances? Fails to mention that the EU came top with 46%

      Mrs Brown says:

      You Fecking Twat

    Andrew Mitchell says:

    Obviously a pleb, and an Americanised one at that! Standards, old man– if we’re going to flip someone off, not to say that we should, you know, but at least do it with the good old British two-finger salute!

    Brown out and pay me damages says:

    PK says:

      The savant says:

      I agree.

      I think. Bolton was. Wiped. Off. The. Stage. Personally. .

      Bolton is boorish. And Ill. Bred .To. The extent he interrupts. Ad hoc. When he objects to the logic and. Pedagogic of. Any answer .

      Jackass ?? If it had. Been me I. Would have called. Him. A pleb. Or worse. A. Member. Of the. Hoi polloi Which he quite patently is. With that interviewing technique….


  11. 21
    Jim Fixed it for Boulton says:

    Conrad Just ‘Saviled’ Boulton.

    Oh Dear How Sad Never Mind.

    Boulton you pleb F’uck off oyur just a butt wipe.

      InHouse Emergency Services says:

      You omitted the Green Room refreshments & discussions before going

      into the studio to record programme……

      Hislop will not be able to walk into the studio !! rest assured……

  14. 28
    Mr Uncle Vanya says:

    A man in denial like many of our elected Boys & Gels in Parlyment. (all is alleged of course)

    Dick Head from the Lamb and Flag, Hammersmith says:

    Why was this gobshite made a lord? And as an ex-criminal why is he still a lord?

      Its probably institutional says:

      Why so surprised a society which makes Savile a Knight and Prescot a Lord is capable of anything.


  16. 34
    James says:

    Personally I rather like Conrad


  17. 39
    Freddie Fraudster says:

    CAn we deny him entry to the UK on the grounds that he is a crook?


  18. 41
    Pundit Too says:

    Black will at least liven up debate and as he has proven he does not like taking prisoners.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

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!
