Bashir Resigns After S**t in Her Mouth Palin Rant

martin bashir

“After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.

I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”

I’m sure she will understand that we have to be fair to everyone, regardless of their status on the world stage.”

Presumably it will go on the pile along with the £7.2m the US Embassy owes for parking fines and missed congestion charge payments.

PM: 9 Journalists Stopped By Police at Tory Away Day

According to Tory MPs in the room, the Prime Minister just told them that nine journalists have been “stopped” by the police for trying to infiltrate their away day conference. The PM said:

“I don’t know if they were tasered”

The news was met with a resounding cheer. They have been warned to be careful who they speak to in bars and restaurants. There is an unconfirmed rumour doing the rounds that some of the journalists have been nicked. Developing…
