Katz Steals Another Pinky Inky for Newsnight

Face-for-radio Chris Cook is leaving the Pink’un to become policy editor at Newsnight. Regular readers will remember Chris from his fair and balanced reporting of a certain Pearson-owned exam board, as well his long, long, long vendetta against Michael Gove, after working for his predecessor in the Tory education brief David Willetts. Seriously though, Guido and Chris settled differences over many beers not long ago in some trendy media hangout we both happened to be in. He wishes him the best of luck. The ‘semi-Tory’ is jumping just as the FT flirts with switching back to Labour…

          I luckily am an immigrant to these shores,yes I Can Read and having read the state interventionist (mild wet) from this semi-tory I would conclude he is a bedwetter,I cannot possibly countenance the thought the BBC would hire a Free Marketeer

    No wonder unemployment is coming down at a rate of knots – the BBC are recruiting like there’s no tomorrow (which, for the BBC, I hope there isn’t).

      What the hell is wrong with them? Do they really think that price controls and nationalisation are the way forward? Can’t they learn from history? Why are they writing for an ostensibly highbrow paper?

      The BBC causes global warming says:

      They can’t even report on a political story without switching to some muppet standing in Parliament Square with a microphone and an umbrella, so when the opportunity to say “there’s been a hurricane in ..” pops up, off they all trot.

      And then the BBC starts bleating about man-made global warming/climate change.

      Remember when BBC news consisted of one bloke in a studio with a piece of paper and a phone?

    FT will always side with Labour and the EU. It has too. It’s about he entrenched interests of the CBI and fellow travellers. The last thing that mob want is any the hoi poloi challenging its position. Hence all innovation mut be state sponsored and licensed.
