Quote of the Day

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism told Lord Leveson:

“The organisation aims for its output and editorial processes to be a masterclass, a gold standard for evidence-based journalism of this kind.”

    The BBC is trading on a reputation earned half a century ago, today’s beeb is an overstaffed turkey. Corruption is rife with jobs and some contracts awarded to friends rather than on merit. Absolute power corrupts and without a profit to make means some department heads feel untouchable and don’t need to justify their decisions.
    The Savile incident is typical of a mindset of a culture of no accountability, BBC staff and management knew of his activities but chose to shrug their shoulders and ignore the issue.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
