Kay proves scientifically that dogs can read human emotions, live on Sky News. And shuts down the Twitter meanies once and for all…
Media Guardian were not impressed with Channel 5 for showing Angie Bowie in tears on Big Brother, with editor Kath Viner tweeting that the footage was “disgraceful“. So disgraceful that the Guardian posted the clip in its entirety above their article.
The clip has now been removed from the Guardian website and replaced with a still. It was The Last Thing You Should Do…
John McDonnell is doing his best to keep Labour’s hopeless row with the BBC going, this time bizarrely – and wrongly – accusing the Daily Politics of being produced by “a private company”. McDonnell claims in an interview with Politics.co.uk:
“Remember, this is not an attack on the BBC and it’s not an attack on Laura Kuenssberg either. There is a private company that makes the Politics programme which is commissioned by the BBC… The editor of the programme obviously decided to do maximum damage to Jeremy’s standing.”
This is simply untrue.
A BBC spokesman stresses to Guido that the Daily Politics is not made by a “private company”. It is produced in-house by the Beeb. They say in response to McDonnell’s comments that “of course all our Politics programme are entirely consistent with the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines and values”. In other words, the Shadow Chancellor is talking B.S.
The most likely explanation is that McDonnell confused the Daily Politics with This Week, BBC2’s Thursday night politics programme which is made by a private company called Juniper TV. Needless to say they have nothing to do with the Daily Politics, and nothing to do with the Doughty resignation. Not like McDonnell to have difficulty with the truth…

The ‘one Pat in, one Pat out’ approach to the reshuffle confounded poor Sir Michael White:
The incoming Pat (top right) certainly is a proper northerner, but she isn’t a “he”.
Guido knows the feeling, it was approaching day three of the reshuffle when the move was announced. And to be fair, it’s out of character for Corbyn to promote a woman…
Whoever designed the new logo for the soon to be online-only BBC Three clearly didn’t think it through. Bizarrely, it appears to say “BBC II”, with an exclamation mark. Guido will be firing off a Freedom of Information request asking how much the licence fee payer was billed for the Roman numeral innumerate graphic designer…
Jeremy Corbyn and his team served Peronis to the mainstream media at a Christmas bash at Labour HQ tonight. Jezza looked awkward working the room, though his speech was funnier than Miliband’s efforts in years past. He even namechecked a […]
