    Someone is pissed!

      Abolish the BBC says:

      Someone’s pissed? Everyone who pays the BBC license tax, I should think.

      Entwhistle did sweet fuck all for 54 days and walks away with £1,300,000.

      Who wouldn’t be pissed?

      Anal Discharge says:

      I can see a pattern of twitching arseholes.

      But not Patten as he is teflon coated!.

        no matter what patton does.
        it is the end of patton.
        patton sounds like baton.
        one of McAlpine’s collectable items.
        baton used by the police. But then they use force.

    • 56
      Peter Grimes says:

      Too much vintage wine at the top table of one of his part- time jobs, obviously.

      Fat Pang should go, double quick, and fuck all payoff!

    Fabians ARE EVIL says:

    Yes, it is as clear as ‘Vision On’:- the BBC is the political wing of the Labour Party

    • 5
      Abolish the BBC says:

      The broadcasting wing, surely?

      • 10
        Fabians ARE EVIL says:

        Can we agree on the BBC being the broadcaster of the Labor party’s propaganda?

        (and don’t even get me started on their man made climate change bollox)

      albacore says:

      With its brilliant impression of a ruptured duck
      And wallowing like a hippo in all that muck
      Ain’t it the wrong body part that you chose -
      Not so much a wing, more the parson’s nose?

    • 30
      Doiinnnngggg says:

      the bbc is and always has been a arm of the establishment – don’t remember the establishment being lefties

      • 44
        Peter Grimes says:

        That’s what makes it unacceptable – Al JaBeeBa always stcks to the Left, like shit to a dirty arsehole.

  4. 7
    It can only get worse says:

    I’m guessing every retired, resigned, or sacked, BBC staffer called to give evidence to any of the many ongoing enquiries will now say “Certainly, just as soon as Patten hands me an extra 6 months pay, cos I’m worth it, like Entwistle”. Why wouldn’t they?

    • 12
      Abolish the BBC says:


      “The BBC Trust said Mr Entwistle had been given a year’s salary, which amounts to £8,333 for every day he spent as director-general, to “reflect the fact that he will continue to help the BBC business” by giving evidence to a series of inquiries” – Daily Telegraph

  5. 8
    The BBC are cunts says:

    Two people have ‘stepped aside’ at the dear old Beeb.

    There will be a slight pause whilst we decide how many £ millions to pay them.

  6. 9
    suissebob says:

    Sackings all round today, Helen Boaden and Steve Mitchell according to the TV.

    Seeing Pravda purge itself is hilarious irony.

    Shame that they’re not going the whole hog and sending them off to the gulags.

      Ordinary Serf says:

      How big will the pay-offs be?

      • 27
        Synic says:

        No pay-offs. Just “Standing Aside” — presumably that means doing feck all on full pay, benefits, and pension accruals etc.


    • 20

      Here is a good start…

      The entire:
      BBC Trust
      Executive Board
      Management Board
      News Group

      Vision, many
      Operations, the entire Human Resources and Communications teams

      They were managers who were not managing. They should all go to a woman (note sex equality rights strictly observed here.)

    Harriet Harman says:

    We demand a 450% increase in the licence fee. Wibble.

    RIP Sir Rex .. a true British hero

  10. 17

    The number of good BBC managers can be counted on the fingers of a careless lumberjack’s hand.

    • 47
      XXX says:

      Would you say the Beeb is a little like the how the armed forces seem to be structured at the top, there are more commanders, vice admirals and admirals than rowing boats, the army is swamped with generals (at least there is no Field Marshall, they never retire), the airforce has many desk bound senior ranks, it is what is sometimes called the inverted pyramid of management structure.

  11. 18
    Anonymous says:

    David Dimbleby suggested on radio this morning that the Today programme should find out the opinions of the Guardian newspaper before it framed its programme content. The Guardian has a tiny readership reflecting the views of the left elite. I think that says it all as to how the BBC is so partisan. Surely the views of the more popular newspapers read by the “plebs” should be taken into account more than that of the poxy Guardian.

    • 21
      Ordinary Serf says:

      The Guardian is bust. Period.

      • 25
        Usual faux Labour outrage when somebody they don't approve gets an undeserved pay-off says:

        There should be a compulsory subscription on profitable newspapers to allow publication of The Guardian.

        • 60
          Rufus Stone says:

          Where do you think the adverts for the vacant BBC posts will be placed? Telegraph? Mail? Express? Or any other LARGE circulation newspaper? No, it will be the Guardian.

    • 24

      Did he really say that?

      Jesus wept.

    • 28
      JH says:

      …which, in all likelihood, will no longer be a print edition.

      £100’000 a week adds up in anyone’s money. Do the GMG really love having a left wing vanity mouthpiece THAT much? Their circulation dipped 10% in the last year alone, despite compulsory purchase throughout much of the public sector.

      It’s little more than a glorified lefty newsletter wringing its hands about the poor one page, then having a review of the Porsche Carrera GT on the next in case any public sector ‘Executives’ fancy a new set of wheels.

    • 37
      XXX says:

      Plebs want more footie, porn, Simpsons, well they can get that in the Daily Star and Dirty Des’s tv channels if they want to pay for it.

  12. 29
    Drop a Daisy cutter on ITV says:

    Has anybody resigned from ITV for Phillip Schofield’s stunt?

  13. 31
    7 Bellies says:

    If DG stands for Despicable Grunter I might apply for the position.

  14. 32
    Doiinnnngggg says:

    sacking everybody at the bbc and not having a licence fee do not make the ‘problems’ go away.

    cameron harks on about transparency but nobody can see what’s going on here except the establishment … and their cover up agendas

    • 34
      jgm2 says:

      It makes the problem that is the BBC go away.

      One step at a time.

      XXX says:

      You’re not expecting Dave to do anything are you, he is too busy trying to make transparrent things opaque

        stunk. must be the fake venetian veneer, fake that,

        can psy do a KO song when we are all being LOGICAL.
        fake that.

        anything but psycho psy will be coming out with a KO song when the fakesheikhs of the world are dead and buried, GANGNAM style.

          Sidney says:

          Threep will scandal adjacent but can not button toast due to frangicidal nearside lane. That having been fried we all need to shield granular road snipes lest headholes grind out the wimples.

          translation please

  15. 36
    JH says:

    It really has been an atrocious six months for the BBC. First the Savile revelations, then the clumsy attempt to deflect peedogeddon onto the evil Tories, which has now boomeranged right back in their smug fucking faces.

    Serves them right for letting Twatson get involved with his tedious, apinfully obvious partisan bullshit. Have they not learned, anything Gordon’s men get involved in turns to shit.

    Say Guido did you notice the line up in I’m a “celebrety” get me out of here, as well as Nads, none other but Charlie Brookes

  20. 50
    Major Frustration says:

    Just heard mention on the Today programme that a previous Head of News at BBC is now Chairman of the Scott Trust which owns the Guardian. Independent broadcaster yeah right.

  21. 51
    I don't n e e d no doctor says:

    Yes I see a “patten”. Comments about Watson are taken off. Guido is really running scared.

  22. 52
    Widescreen2010 says:

    Are McAlpine’s lawers coming after Guido for his role in this?

  23. 53
    nambawan pikinini bilong Misis kwin says:

    Save the badgers – cull the BBC

  24. 54
    8illy 8owden, the world's greatist umplre says:

    Free subscription to the Guardian with every television licence.

    Win-win-win situation.

    • 58
      Rufus Stone says:

      Methinks that would certainly cause yet more folk to refuse to pay the telly tax. Yup… Brilliant idea – when does it start?

    It is so funny people saying it is our BBC….quite clearly it is not …it is the elites money machine and EU propaganda tool.

    that is possibly the best cartoon they have ever produced.

    Still shit though

    The savant5 says:

    Yes i agree FAT. Should go but it must be sugarcoated in the diplomatic niceties .

    Ergo he should be offered a position on the chinese politburo with dedicated responsibility for his old stamping ground of. Hong kong and chair its Special Administrative Regional. Secretariat.

    Otherrwise acronymed as. S A R S

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
