    “… toothy freak Janet Street-Porter” be careful you might be accused of “moral bankrupcy”

      Boorishness and crassness, certainly.  I was looking for the ‘flag’ for ASB to moderate his own post.

      JHT, you seem quite up on Scripture with regard to homosexuality and marriage.  Have you ever read “”Do unto others as you would have others do unto you”"?

        Jusi=t like the BBC-being your own producer and expert analyst aftrewards…only stands to reason that you got it (on balance and just about) right.

    This woman with her smoking bans and her referring to council houses as being “more springboards to opportunity than safety nets” sums up most of Labour groupthink.
    I`m guessing she is one of the invisisble bedblockers in Milibands useless Shadow Cabinet….think that she was the one that had nothing to say as the rioters took the Arndale apart!
    Still…my man in Salford says that when the riots were in full flow…Greggs the bakers only rolled the metal blinds down to half…guessing that the poor lambs needed their carbs and no-one was strong enough to run off with a Greggs “rioters special” (pop n pastie-only 39p!)

    I think the Liberal Democrats should change their name. They are neither.

      noggin,
      Well-spotted !  Oborne just couldn’t resist letting his anti-Israel bias creep in towards the end, even though the programme was about Blair.  The subtext being that Blair is pro-Israel. He rarely visits Gaza  !

        Come to think of it (stupid me for not doing so before), I guess this is why Paxo gave Oborne such latitude in insulting the eurocrat as an “idiot” three times the other day.

        Anti-Semitism goes a long way at the BBC.

    Sorry, too much for me. I’m just not robust enough for that sort of thing.

    Barry,
    I did not think anyone could stand it either.  I shall ignore the other idiots this next week as well.
