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?

      Way past time the leftie BBC was split up and sold off.

    “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!

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
