Mirror Man Dan’s TV Plans

Guido is hearing that big things could be on the horizon for former Mirror hack Dan Evans. Rumour has it Evans, who worked at the paper’s Sunday operation under Tina Weaver before moving to the News of the World in 2005, has been in talks with a major TV production company. Evans was a key player in the Screws’ features team and is on bail over phone-hacking allegations after his arrest in August 2011. The US market is also said to have expressed an interest…

    The Mirror lies over the ocean?

      Hacked Off's Ministry of Truth says:

      Diane Abbott found this attack deeply distressing and therefore we shall seize all of the Express assets, then Patrick O’Flynn shall be hung by the neck until he is dead.

      'Beyond Doubt' Tony Blairs great lie to Parliament says:

      The end justifies the means Dianne.

      Parade...Attention!! says:

      Except the City of London school says this about it’s Combined Cadet Force (CCF)

      “the playground doubles as the CCF parade ground – the corps is one of the largest in the country, the school tells us, with 300 boys of all ages”

      So Diane’s lad had Military training at his private school.

    Huge Grant Labour Leader says:

    Apparently Ed Miliband will play the part of a foppish, stuttering twat.

    Wanda Ringhands says:

    And so it ends, the end of the Daily Mirror.

    Missed only by the mentally incontinent and scousers

    Heard about this yesterday.

    Royal Charters 'R Us says:

    We need another state funded broadcaster to rival and counterbalance the BBC.

      V1le, vicious Labour ruined my Country says:

      The BBC should be privatised.

      • 11

        It would raise about £6 – 10 billion pounds AND reduce EVERY families annual tv tax, tax burden by about the same amount as when Labour put it up by scrapping the 10p tax rate.

          Tessa Tickles says:

          £6bn, are you sure? They’ve got a back-catalogue of 70′s sitcoms plus a load of dumbed-down contemporary documentaries starring Prof Brian Cox (which no-one can understand because there’s music blaring away from start to finish), plus a few by that Scottish bloke with long hair who we wouldn’t be able to understand even if we could hear him.

          My highest offer is for £50, and for that I just want one of the original-style Daleks. The rest of the BBC can go in a skip.

        They do have a brand spanking new newsroom though…biggest in Europe apparently….which is nice.

          Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

          Not to mention more than 2,000 copy-and-paste merchants masquerading as journalists. 2,000 of the fuckers. That’s more than all the dead tree press companies on Fleet Street combined, and probably a few major cities such as Manchester, Glasgow, Brum as well.

      Channel 4 news have applied for the position of alternative broadcaster.

      “Same liberal spin, different time slot” looks like a winning slogan

        not that cunning says:

        Yes lets have fox doing “fair and balanced” news instead. Always on message.

        • 25

          Why always Fox?
          What is about a successful formula that drives lefties wild?
          Is it envy?

          Is it so impossible to imagine a TV channel where the answer to each and every question/subject/issue/problem is not “more spending” ?

      Top of the Pops Letch says:

      How come the BBC never gets exemplary fines when it breaks its Royal Charter?

    Kim Yu Twat says:

    Haven’t you got a column in the Sun now you twat?

  9. 15
    Athanasius says:

    Under the new rules, if Dan Evans denied this story and you had named your source and s/he was in the jurisdiction while you remained outside, could the exemplary punishment be given to your source?

    freedom to read says:

    When Fraser Nelson announced months ago that The Spectator wouldn’t sign up to any state control, I took out a subscription the next day.
    It’s comforting to know that Guido and my newspaper of choice The Telegraph have also declined to take part.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
