See the BBC Noticeboard Mocking Tory Cock-Ups

The Sunday Telegraph had an amusing little story revealing the BBC office noticeboard covered with some classic news stories taking the mick out of Tory MPs. Well here it is in all its politically impartial glory:

The Mirror’s James Lyons is delighted that his photo of a tired and emotional Tim Loughton wading into the Indian Ocean is still enjoyed by staff at the Beeb, who were clearly also fans of ‘Gun Nut Tory Tried to Shoot Cat’. Which, to be fair, are both pretty funny. No doubt they’ve got a noticeboard devoted to laughing at Labour MPs the other side of the office. Right?

      No need even for that. A one line Bill in Parliament, making it no longer an offence not to pay the TV tax. Simples.

      I’m sure you already know that all our comics are left-wing because we can’t find any right-wing ones.

      Similaly, we couldn’t find any newspaper articles mocking Labour MPs.

      So we are impartial.

        Just when the government are attempting to re-write history, and teach school kids to believe that WW1 was a ‘Great’ War, along comes Jeremy Paxman with his comment that, “There were plenty of stupid generals, of course there were, but the idea that they deliberately set out to get their men killed strikes me as the delusion of one fool.” Now does that sound at all left-wing?

      Didn’t Poseur Patten once claim to be a Conservative? He didn’t support Liz McKean when she left the BBC over the cancellation of the Savile report that never was. She was a rare beacon of honesty and unbiased reporting at the dying BEEB. The fact that most of the Newsnight crew boycotted her leaving do says all we need to know about that shitty conglomerate of crap, as Spike used to call it.

        More like they shunned her because of the sh*t-storm she whipped up. On any other day, she would have been embraced as one of them.

      Sadly, many people believe that this bully-boy attack is for real, and are not able to see it for the control tactic it really is – an attempt to keep the BBC fearful in the lead up to the next election. For were the BBC a nest of dangerous wing-wingers, why have they returned to calling WWI the “Great” War? And, by defending the way the lions where led by donkeys, is not Jeremy Paxman acting more like a government lackey?

    If the BBC license fee was reduced to say £26 p.a every hard working family would be about £120 a year better off . Why should we pay for this endless left wing bias . On a recent edition of the a programme hosted by Brian Blessard most of the content was being very rude about Margaret Thatcher . Blair , Brown , Miliband did not get a mention . The problem in the UK is that the right spent their time working while the left , can spent its time on being nasty to the Conservatives .

    How about a strike not to pay the BBC license fee .

    The "Great" War says:

    “On that first day of the Battle of the Somme, 20,000 British soldiers were killed and 35,000 wounded, but this did not make General Haig want to change his methods. He ordered more attacks but the same tragic story was repeated each time. Against the advice of experts who said he did not have enough, he sent fifty tanks into battle in September. Twenty-nine broke down before they even reached the battlefield and the rest soon got stuck in the mud. By the end of the battle, the British and French had lost 620,000 men and the Germans 450,000. The allies had advanced 15 kilometres at the furthest point.”

    From Brooman’s, ‘The Great War’, 1991.

    Many things wrong with Haig, but 4 months before the Somme the Germans launched the disaster of Verdun, with losses possibly greater. And in 1918 the British Army, with 62 divisions against 90 French ones, killed and captured more Germans and played the major part in the German defeat. Haig was the British commander. Not everything Joan Littlewood said is true.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



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!
