Ex-Sindy Editor John Mullin to Head BBC Indy Ref Coverage

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?

    “A Blairite takeover at the BBC ?”

    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!

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
