Big move…

Meanwhile Tony Blair’s former political spokesperson Godric Smith has been appointed by James Purnell as a £100,000-a-year Beeb PR adviser. A Blairite BBC takeover…

    A “Blairite takeover” of the BBC is impossible. They’ve been running it for years.

      As I understand it, No. Is this not against their beloved EU’s procurement rules?

    As far as the BBC is concerned, that would represent a lurch to the Right.

    Godric Smith is not Tony Blair’s “former spokesperson”. I think you mean “former SPOKESMAN” – the grammatically correct generic term. Leave the politically correct twaddle to Labour and the LibDems, and stick to proper English!

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
