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?

    Fatbot loses the Plot says:

  3. 3
    Huge Grant Labour Leader says:

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

  4. 4
    Wanda Ringhands says:

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

    Missed only by the mentally incontinent and scousers

  5. 5
    Rupert says:

    Heard about this yesterday.

  6. 6
    Cut-me-own-throat Dibbler says:

    It appeals to the Andy Capped.

  7. 7
    Royal Charters 'R Us says:

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

  8. 8
    V1le, vicious Labour ruined my Country says:

    The BBC should be privatised.

  9. 9

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

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

  10. 10
    Jon Snow knows says:

    The Grass is always Greener on the other side. . .

  11. 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.

  12. 12
    Rat's arse says:

    Nice one!

  13. 13
    Kim Yu Twat says:

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

  14. 14
    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.

  15. 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?

  16. 16
    not that cunning says:

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

  17. 17
    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.

    Fishy says:

    …and the public face of ‘Sucked Off’

  20. 20
    'Beyond Doubt' Tony Blairs great lie to Parliament says:

    The end justifies the means Dianne.

  21. 21
    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.

  22. 22
    Labourunionsbbc are one under the EU says:

    Not so much ‘playing it’ as living it.

  23. 23
    Equalizer1963 says:

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

  24. 24
    Anonymous says:

    Cameron Conservatives are promising milk and honey after 2015? I wonder why only in 2015?

  25. 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” ?

  26. 26
    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.

  27. 27
    Hacked Off and the Labour Party. says:

    We’ll summon everyone to a meeting in the broom cupboard at 2am and declare our decision in the morning.

  28. 28
    jon 'silly socks' snow says:

    Oi’ leave my buss pass out of it, I need that when I go to the exciting major disater areas of the world, only to report you understand.

  29. 29
    Top of the Pops Letch says:

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

  30. 30
    Village Idiot says:

    It’s,”My Bonny lies’ over the Ocean”….

  31. 31
    Caroll says:

    No need to denigrate Scousers – I live among them and they are good people. Was tempted to make a comment about you but then I’d be sinking to your level.

  32. 32
    T'graph on sundays says:

    C. Brooker always tells it like it is.

  33. 33

    Better email it to Hugh Grant first.
    Don’t want to go off message.

  34. 34

    Tell me, exactly how high is your horse?

  35. 35

    Doesn’t say he killed anyone though.
    CCF don’t normally go into combat. Sometimes raid the odd scout hut, but the about it.

  36. 36
    I can't believe it's not Labour says:

    “why only in 2015?”

    Because 2015 the Tory Party will be nothing more than a bad memory.

  37. 37
    Jimmy says:

    Because we’ll have a proper government then.

  38. 38
    Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

    If you think the Mirror’s bad, you should see its Scottish sister-rag, the Record. It makes the Mirror look like an intellectual heavyweight.

  39. 39
    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.

  40. 40
  41. 41
    The happiest days of your life? says:

    My bonny lies over the ocean
    My bonny lies over the sea
    My daddy lied over my mummy
    and that’s how my mummy got me.

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.”
