The New Adventures of Murnaghan

Dermot is back on our screens after his summer jollies, and the over-worked video monkeys at Sky News have treated us to this bonkers advert for his Sunday morning show:

Well Superman was a journalist…

Is Air Con Sexist?

Meanwhile, over at Sky News, good to see they are fully embracing the silly season spirit with a discussion on whether office air con is sexist:

“Often in offices, it is men who control temperatures…”

Diane Abbott’s X-Rated Videobombing

Connoisseurs of the very childish and not at all funny internet meme FHRITP will appreciate Diane Abbott’s appearance on Sky News Tonight [contains strong language]:

Killer Diane death stare, though.

Kay Dodgems Ofcom Rap

Ofcom has cleared Kay Burley after a spurious petition called for an investigation into her interview with the unrepentant boss of Alton Towers, who had insisted there were no safety problems with his rides:

“Ofcom received a number of complaints about Kay Burley’s questioning style during an interview about an accident at Alton Towers. We have carefully assessed whether this interview exceeded generally accepted standards. In our view, the interviewee was able to respond fully to the questions and put his position across. As a result we have not taken the matter forward for investigation.”

Petitions about TV presenters never get anywhere anyway…

Sky News Internal Moves

Sky-News-ContactVia FeaturesExec:

“Sky News has appointed Dominic Waghorn as diplomatic editor. Waghorn was Sky’s US correspondent from 2011, following his role attained in 2006 as Middle East correspondent.

Asia correspondent Mark Stone has been appointed as Sky’s Europe correspondent based in Brussels. His position as Asia correspondent is succeeded by Moscow correspondent Katie Stallard.

Additionally, Europe correspondent Robert Nisbet will now be working in UK politics during Anushka Asthana’s maternity leave.”

George Osborne Skewered By Kay Burley On Deficit Failure

Kay Burley had George Osborne on the spot today on the key policy failure of this government, in a way that other heavyweight interviewers like Evan Davies and Robert Peston failed to achieve. She asked: is the UK deficit higher than Greece’s deficit? Kay challenged him to give a yes or no answer, he kept trying to misdirect her and waffle. When he refused to answer she asserted that the answer was yes. Osborne stuttered and looked badly flummoxed. Then he claimed untruthfully that the Greek deficit is ballooning. It isn’t, the Greek deficit is lower than the UK’s deficit and the IMF forecasts they will be in surplus before the UK.

According to IMF data last year the Greek deficit (-2.4%) was lower than the UK deficit (-5.7%), it will be lower this year at -0.78% versus -4.78% and they are due to be in surplus next year – before the UK. Osborne has failed to meet his own deficit targets because he put off the hard decisions and switched to neo-Keynesianism whilst spinning austerity rhetoric. Lying about Greece doesn’t help his case…

Quote of the Day

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
