    Be fair to Auntie. The News comes flat-packed these days, and the pictorial instructions made just as much of a monkey out of Auntie as they do the rest of us.

    Contents: i = 6, e = 11, a = 7 ….

    There is nothing too trivial for the news on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation these days, such is the extent of their dumbing down now. Their real favourite is a contrived news item which, coincidentally, just happens to be the subject of a BBC programme. They even advertise their own programmes in the weather forecasts, such is their desperation for ratings.

    Stick a red rosette on its wee coat and it could be elected as the next Shad Chancellor.

    Just gotta an email from the BBC and totally ignored my complaints. I am not paying for this unaccountable sh’t. I will have my say in court.

    I am don’t feel sorry for these idiots. A pair of hoons.

    I agree. Many BBC stories are celebrity nonsense and regional trivia.

    They’ve triumphed here by combining two flyweight topics, shopping and animals, into one story.

    Lord Reith would not be pleased.

    Not news. Everyone who shops at Ikea is a monkey.

    Bolshevik Broadcasting Corpse says:

    Actually the preferred news item is one of product placement in the form of a non-critical regurgitated press release. One would imagine that there are benefits to news staff for doing this. Probably very hard to trace those benefits, despite there being at least one such item on the news every single day.

    there’s a Neon King Kong standin’ on my back

    The monkey says:

    Last person to offer me a banana was Savile but he insisted I was blind folded

    Maximus says:

    Two things: celebration of ‘cultural diversity’ within the socio-economic matrix, and reinforcement of the faux evo-sociology premise that ‘cultural diversity’ is a contiuum that cannot exclude apes and the like.

    BBC = Busy Broadcasting Codswallop.

    Planet of the Apes says:

    ‘Public service journalism’… It certainly made a monkey out of them.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
