Fuck the BBC

The BBC: we try not to take sides

Also the BBC:


#522

Not sure we need the general public deciding an open vote on European issues again, they’ll probably vote that we leave Eurovision completely and set up our own singing contest with more brown ale and hatred


#523

Some gammon guy gets into the QT audience multiple times. Again.


#524

You’ll be disappointed to discover that we know a very pro-indy guy in Scotland who works as a producer for QT. Fortunately I haven’t spent much time with him, because I’d find it difficult to keep a lid on all my feelings if I did.


#525

The feelings of righteous agreement I assume


#526

Mark me down as indifferent. I barely ever watch QT, including the editions with this particular guy on.


#527

F£cking “side hustles” (second jobs). Their willingness to leap on any bullsh£t media term to make a headline is nauseating. It’s bad enough in business with “pure play” (that means focused, incidentally) and all this other sh£t. Just bloody use English. FFS.

I’m sure that the timing is purely a fluke, but on the same day that the Spectator publishes this


#537

An event popped up on Facebook called ‘identity politics is tearing us apart’ with Shriver arguing the case


#538

Have heard absolutely nothing about her since We Need To Talk About Kevin, when did she turn into such a howling great nob?


#539

Ah just seen this stuff here.

Her Wiki page cites her as a Libertarian so I guess she always was?


#540

She’s probably always been a dickhead, but for a few years now she’s really been pushing the Literary Katie Hopkins angle:

(We Need To Talk About Kevin was massively over-rated too. Take that “Lionel”!)
