Eco-Loon Storms Off Sky News After Savaging from Adam Boulton

Being called “a load of incompetent, middle class, self-indulgent people who want to tell us how to live our lives” was the final straw for Robin Boardman-Pattison

Adam Boulton Accuses All Tory Brexiteers of Being “Far Right”

Sky‘s Adam Boulton has made the extraordinary assertion that Tories who support Brexit (i.e. the vast majority of the Tory Party) are “far right.” Staggering…

UPDATE: Boulton doubles down…

Boulton Turns Sky Blue

In off-air footage leaked to Buzzfeed, Sky’s Adam Boulton slipped into a few Anglo-Saxonisms, one directed at his co-worker Beth Rigby in Birmingham earlier this month for Conservative Party Conference.

“Just put the f***ing seat in”

“She’s got to come and f***ing sit here is she wants to be on telly”

“SIT DOWN THERE stop f***ing around”

Is this really a big deal? Is your workplace a church or nursery? The Guy Newsroom is more profane…

Guido Poll: Readers Reject TV Debates Commission

Guido readers have not embraced the prospect of a new TV debate commission with quite the same enthusiasm as Sky News, despite Sky‘s wall-to-wall attempts to plug the idea. Over 2,500 readers answered Guido’s Twitter poll, with 74% coming out against the idea of a new quango to force party leaders to take part in televised debates in the run up to general elections. A surprisingly firm 3 to 1 ratio. Guido is not opposed to the idea – so long as a commission was funded by the television industry not taxpayer…

Poll: Do We Need a TV Debates Commission?

Adam Boulton’s proposal that an independent debate commission be set up to avoid the farce of past general elections whereby they either didn’t happen or the formats were stitched up between political parties and broadcasters, making for dire television is worth considering.

If there were to be a commission Guido would not want it to be either statutory or at taxpayers’ expense…

Bad Al Lied About Not Lying to the Media

Alastair Campbell’s claim on Newsnight that he never lied to the media brought loud guffaws from many journalists. A co-conspirator sent this from Adam Boulton’s Tony’s Ten Years: Memories of the Blair Administration. In it Campbell is reported apologising to Boulton for lying to him. Campbell lied to Evan Davies on live television about never lying to the media…

No, Tories Did Not Block Corbyn Grenfell Speech Coverage

Confusion this afternoon as Sky News reported the government had blocked broadcasters from filming speeches by Jeremy Corbyn and Labour MPs during the Grenfell fire statement in parliament:

The conspiracy theory was quickly spread by Corbynistas claiming a Tory plot to hide the debate from the public. A Tory source makes clear this is untrue, they had nothing to do with the decision not to broadcast the first few speeches. Turns out it was a cock-up by the parliamentary authorities, who took a while to determine the protocol for filming while parliament isn’t in session. The vast majority of the session, including Corbyn’s words, were broadcast anyway. No Fi around to send “Bunter” an angry text this time…

UPDATE: The Commons insists it wasn’t their cock-up:

“As the briefing was not a normal parliamentary proceeding, it could only be broadcast upon specific request.  The broadcast began as soon as physically possible after that request was received.”

So it was the broadcasters’ fault…

Barry Gardiner Loses It With Adam Boulton

A very squeaky and excitable Barry Gardiner reached for the Trump playbook and piled into Adam Boulton on Sky News this morning, accusing him of letting the Tories off the hook: “Why did you let him of the hook on immigration? If that had been a Labour minister… You’re supposed to be the tough guy on Sky News and you let him off!” Expect a lot more of this MSM-bashing over the next 49 days. Poor Adam is getting it from all sides at the moment… 

UPDATE: Top Corbynistas have dubbed Barry “The People’s Gardiner” after this morning’s outing on Sky.

Media Mistakes Under Reshuffle Pressure

hunt truss telegraph

May’s fast-paced reshuffle is clearly frazzling some, with the Telegraph Politics first saying the new Justice Secretary Liz Truss had been moved to education, and then using a picture of Jeremy Hunt when referring to Gavin Williamson. They had one job…

Next a woman – sounding remarkably like Sky News reporter Beth Rigby – is heard exclaiming “Oh sh*t I dropped my phone” while trying to question Jeremy Hunt. Swearing before 9 pm is in breach of Ofcom’s regulations. As Boulton says, “I’m sure you didn’t hear it from Jeremy Hunt”…

Adam Boulton on Neo-Thatcherite David Cameron

Adam Boulton says David Cameron campaigned as a neo-Thatcherite…

“The manifesto programme, with its sell-off of social housing, clampdown on public sector strikes, EU in/out referendum and benefit cuts, represents a much more traditional, neo-Thatcherite conservatism than that offered by Cameron Mk 1…”

Raheem Calls For Patrick O’Flynn’s Head

Fresh from being described as a “wrong un” by Patrick O’Flynn, Nigel Farage’s outgoing chief of staff Raheem Kassam popped up on Sky last night to blast O’Flynn and call for his resignation.

Boulton:  “Are you saying there’s no place in the party for Patrick O’Flynn?”

Kassam: “That’s absolutely what I’m saying…over the past 24 hours he has shown himself to be utterly unprofessional and undeserving of holding the spokesperson role for the UK Independence party…”

Raheem also let slip that he’s back at the helm of Breitbart London…[…] Read the rest
