Crystal Methodist Thanks BBC for Newsnight Fawning

Having been charged with drug offences this morning, the renowned gak-fiend Reverend Flowers lavished praise on the BBC for giving him such an easy ride when he appeared on Newsnight:

“There is a phrase for some people, they call them vultures, and I really do hope that somebody quotes me on that, especially the BBC. The BBC have been really nice to me but the rest of you are vultures.”

He must be very grateful that Newsnight failed to ask him about his use of drugs and rent-boys since he declared himself a changed man…

    I suspect there are one or two words for elderly men who ply young rent boys with drugs – but I suspect that most of the press would be loath to use those.

    BBC says:

    We were too busy preparing a panorama special on whether the conservatives have a woman problem and if they are too white.

    I honestly thought for a few moments that they were goung to take this shithead to court for his part in ruining your economy!

    Long John Silver' s parrot says:

    Is he going to take “full responsibility” for his actions like a good Socialist or are we going to be subjected to an Oscar performance ?

    BBC HR Dept (Savile Channel) says:

    Employ that man!

    To be followed by several “specials” revealing all UKIP members to be armed and dangerous lunatics who burn babies and copulate with hippos..

    Long John Silver' s parrot says:

    British population 65M

    Cathy Newmanmana says:

    You are being oppressed by patriarchal white men. Would you like to come on #C4News to explain the terrible poverty you live in.

    By the way, I want more taxes on the working class to pay for nannies for liberated, empowered post-modern women like me to have more babies and be career orientated.

    You must be one of them geniuses. Read a study done in the US where they found that the average IQ of the householders was inversely proportional to the number of TV’s.

    The BBC, run by bumboys for bumboys.

  33. 33
    BBC News Editor says:

    If Oscar Pistorius is found guilty then we will broadcast a TV-special revealing how evil Apartheid, aided by Thatcher, corrupted an innocent young man. If he is not guilty then we will broadcast a TV-special revealing how evil Apartheid, aided by Thatcher, fostered a witch hunt against an innocent young man.

    Strangeways Inmate says:

    No. He’s innocent. Leave him alone. Or just give him community service or a fine. Or send him to Barlinnie – or a secure mental hospital – or just let him escape or something.

    Liverpool Victim Culture says:

    He crashed a bank and more but wants sympathy and a shoulder to cry on in public.

    Fred Goodwin or that goon in charge of Northern Rock didn’t beg for sympathy.

    If they were fo rced to go co mme rcial with subs cri ption if the lice nse fe e should be withdrawn and kept on broadcasting this biased dri vel one just wonders whether they could survive.

    Owen's Remedial Media Studies teacher says:

    Compare and Contrast BBC’s coverage before midday (Hurray – Outrage – We’ve got him) to their coverage after midday (it appears Nige is being hounded by smears – story dropped from all news in favour of “96 footy fans died 25 years ago: Mascara Man get s applauded”)

    Compare and contrast the latter non-coverage of the smear alleging criminal behaviour of a serving party leader to their week of coverage of the Wail’s attack on Ed’s dad which was all wind and hot air (some dead bloke did/didn’t like England)

    Norman Normal says:

    I am in TV quality poverty as every time I turn it on my intelligence is insulted.

    Particularly by Sky’s recent Business News coverage. Poppy Trowbridge acts as if she is reading to a class of 4 year old children. (Same Poppy that used to be at opendemocracy.net? If so you should have left her there!)

    Stop moaning. The BBC is a necessary state informatiomn service, just like all those useful newspapers from your council and all the adverts for the mayor plastered all over London.

    Village Idiot says:

    ….Poulation of Britain …65million, of which,there are many that are not British,but have been given the status of being British!….Deluded,delusional people in the establishment would have us believe that Britishness can be accomplished by living here for a short while and then taking a test,and singing the national anthem,it is simply not true!…It is an insult to true British,a term I will not argue,as most sane people know what British is and who is not British!…As guests here ,respect Britain and realise you will never be British!

    Enough people pay to watch the c£$p on Sky.

    Surely a good interview is one that reveals the nature of the interviewee? Paxman let him slobber on, showing himself to be a slimy, self-pitying delusional slug. Job done.

    But shhhhh never mention that the Public Protector just caught President Zuma personally profiting from R240,000,000 public funds spent on his Inkhandla residence.

    Fred the pensioner says:

    … and the cvnts went ape on the Mirror’s front page food bank story today – no mention that it was completely false : plus of the three people they managed to find to interview to bleat about how hard done by they were, not one of the was English (as we understand the term!). If they start giving away free Mercs, I’ll pop by and pick one up.

    Cynosarges says:

    Flowers was right when he described the press as vultures. However he did not complete the analogy

    Vultures fulfil an ecological niche – they clean up dead carrion. And there is one piece of carrion that needs the rotting meat stripped off.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
