“Celebrations are a trifle early.”

    I have my own triumph to announce! I confidently expect to be in the New Years Honours List, and thereafter be known as Sir Gordon McBonkers Brhune. Elevation to the Lords is only a matter of time.

    The line-up for I’m a Celebrity has been unveiled. Normally I don’t watch that shit. But one of the line-up is Coronation St actress Helen Flanagan.

    I might tune in for the occasional episode.

    someone please inform me very slowly why the BBC4 production on 1/Nov/2012 @9pm (a three parter 08/Nov etc..) entitled:

    The day the Town Hall sharnk.

    Regarding cuts to Stoke-on-Trent and it’s budget via Eric Pickles, did not broadcast any internal wranglings over Labour selections for MP or local Councillors?

    A Pickle’s cut of £21m turned into a ‘shortfall’ of £36 inside one breath and the BBC production team did not spot this?

    Up to now, the BBC4 team have got this horribly wrong.

      FGS Gary. the whole show is just a BBC party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party! The whole point is to show the pain, misery and hardship the evil Tories enjoy inflicting on the elderly, vulnerable and ‘disadvantaged.’

    Got to say, that was a bit weak….Trifle Early? Didn’t reference the event at all, that’s not satire that’s just a pun. Satire is contextual, this would have worked with anyone holding a cake.

    My winner would be:-

    Annonnymouse!

    After putting down the cake Denis noticed that he had sticky fingers!

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!
