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

The man in charge of the BBC’s Scottish referendum coverage will be former Independent on Sunday editor John Mullin.

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?

      Way past time the leftie BBC was split up and sold off.
      These expense paid dodgers would not last a month is the private sector, so get to it.

    “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!

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.”
