    That’s going cause a few dilemmas when a few of Mr. Purnell’s colleagues in ‘guest expert’ bookings get back to ‘work’ again tomorrow after a nice day in the park with the kids.

    One for the ‘shows we are balanced’ brigade.

    Labour, but not as Labour as we could be.

    Still a unique BBC split*, mind.

    Wonder how Mr. Purnell views the BBC canning Carol Thatcher (*300 to one opposed by the public, so they really can speak for the nation… and then ignore it) for a private race joke vs. supporting Mr. Ed in his ‘it was a long time ago… moving on… let’s focus on what we’d prefer to’ efforts with Stafford, Pollard, 28Gate, O’Farrell’s very public ‘joke’ on murdering political opponents, etc?

    Can’t disagree – he is a total show boater – he is only jumping on the child abuse scandal to feather his own nest and slime his way up the greasy pole of politics – he won’t even look at the docs about the NSPCC hiring Grosskopt, despite there being indisputable evidence being offered to him to look at.

    He is a fat, useless blob of lard and should be outed as the limelight loving show pony that he really is.

    Twatson is only one symptom of the cancer in Labour. He is simply a rottweiller attack dog they breed and nurture in a special secure environment usually in the north and midlands regions.
    Quizz – Put a photo of him and the shadow cabinet and put it to Americans in the true west to identify their common employment, and enjoy the answers.

      The Yanks would probably think those idiots were the cast of some new ensemble sitcom– wait, they ARE actually, if you think about it. (For that matter, so are the Cabinet!) Then the Yanks would borrow the idea, and do their own version, as they do with so many others (cf. the new Kevin Spacey “F.U.” series, although strictly spe*aking not a comedy per se, but it has its satirical moments). You might think I’m being a bit harsh; I couldn’t possibly comment.

    He’s wide of the mark. It’s Labour that is the cancer. Watson is just a malignant outcrop of that cancer.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
