WATCH: CBeebies Character Impersonates Jimmy Savile

The BBC has had to apologise after airing a Tweenies repeat this morning in which a character dressed up as Jimmy Savile and used his catchphrase “now then, guys and gals”. Beeb own goal of the year so far…

Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

In Guido’s Daily Star Sunday column:

  • Labour’s new “Shadow Minister for London” Sadiq Khan eyes the Mayoralty. Who are the rivals who say “No You Khant?”
  • Dave’s relationship with backbenchers explained in a nutshell.
  • Another blow for the Glasgow Labour leadership: from cocaine to police caution for gay public “sex act”.
  • David Miliband trousers £1.1 million since “losing”. Blairite Lord Sainsbury funds his comeback campaign with half-a-million.
  • Green peer reviewed climate research scaremongering from yesteryear: “children just aren’t going to know what snow is”.
  • Newsroom shock at the “death” of the Shadow Chancellor.

All for just £1…

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.”



The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
