    Nothing’s too good for the people’s broadcaster.

    Stick another pair on expenses.

      They are only a pound in the pound shop. And look exactly the same.

        I can remember a time when any poor fellow unfortunate enough to have to wear NHS specs had a pair just like that, and Goochy was the Captain of the 1st XI.

          I’d forgotten about that. Yes NHS Specs, they were awful and the opticians had a stranglehold on the cost of private frames, something like a couple of weeks wages.

          Yet another state injustice that Mrs T freed us from

    Nick needs a new pair – one with reality lenses in.

    I’m not a great fan of Nick, I’m glad this has happened.

    On the QT says:

    I missed last night’s Question Time but I gather it was another anti-Labour audience in a surprising recent run of anti-Labour audiences. The tide is turning and even the BBC can’t rig their audiences any more. We had the delightful spectacle of that fat c-unt Emily Fatbellies being heckled a few weeks ago, and apparently last night, the airhead Labour mong Rushanara Ali was being heckled for her comments defending Labour’s record on the NHS in Wales.

      She sure was and it was excellent watching, unfortunately Melanie Phillips was slightly off form however the real comedy came from novelist and food critic (ie BBC staffer) Jay Rayner.
      What a complete and utter self important Gruniad reading kn@b head, with his “look at me I’m the child of immig*ants and didn’t I do well, its the Daily Mail and the Tories that are the problem, not knuckleheaded socialist claptrap blah blah blah”….. ad infinitum.

        Yes Jay Rayner showed what a Labour red rossette wearing donkey / ass he is last night.

        Many people will have found his views of p@edophiles and his quite vocal defence of H@rm@n and Dr0omey quite disturbing as well.

        He seemed very out of touch on this and very defensive about their links to peadophiles. I wonder if he did protest too much ?

        Why would a food writer give the strongest defence to H@rm@n and Dr0mey out of the whole panel. Very strange.

      Gerbil 7 says:

      Yes but when a Labour, sorry I meant vetted member of the audience went on about how immigrants can only benefit the country, there was a lot of orchestrated whooping and cheering. It was as though they had released a lot of socialist supporting angst that had built up all evening.
      One good point was when Dimbleby was hectoring the Tory and she replied that she would give the answer she wanted to not the answer that he was wanted her to give.

      Given the progress this porgramme is making, it could be seen as almost watchable by those that have not been programmed by the left wing BBC withing, say 10 years.

        Gave up watching it a couple of years ago as it's so biased and vast numbers of enrichers bused in says:

        Not tempted.

        John Bellingham says:

        There seems to be universal acceptance on the BBC that immigrants are beneficial to Britain, enrich cultural life, improve living standards, work hard and pay taxes. It’s a bit like way that no one ever went to the toilet in TV dramas in the 1950s and 1970s.

        Wasn’t that Bengali woman another total car crash? Like a ten year old who hadn’t done its homework! These are the people who expect to be in government FFS!

          But she wears a rosette of a particular colour therefore, all those allied to that colour will agree with whatever drivel she spouts if she needs to spout any.
          It really is a crying shame and another reason why democracy is dying on its arse.

        Lets be fair, QT is still very sh1t & biased.

        QT is to TV what a megaphone is to Marxist Milliband in a northern town.

      Noticeable sparcity of Newport, or even Welsh, accents amongst the “audience”

    Did somebody smack him one? Police are questioning 1,000 suspects.

      The Great British Public says:

      Maybe a rare does of reality hit Robinson in the face and smashed his glasses… you know, like a PAYE tax bill instead of a cosy BBC engineered self employed ‘consultancy’ contract that pays no tax..

    Just wear those rose tinted lie our ones, Nobbo.

    Perhaps he could auction them off and donate the proceeds to BBC victims of Jimmy Saville?

    Did Gordon Brown tighten his sphincter?

    John Bull (British Bulldog) says:

    Forget Nick Robinson’s spectacles – it’s our great UNITED KINGDOM that we need to keep in one piece in 2014.

    201 days to go. Time for British patriots to rally to the cause.
