The One Show

Here’s One Show reporter Ellie Harrison sporting a CND T-shirt for a segment about new veterinary procedures on last night’s programme:

Hat tip to Dumb Jon, who wasn’t impressed with the show. I dare say he won’t be pleased to hear that Adrian Chiles will be presenting a late night spin-off called The Ten Show.

    I thought beeboids were not supposed to wear clothes that showed a political bias?

      Isn’t that the footprint of the American Chicken?

      We have to keep our heads until this peace craze blows over…


  2. Grant says:

    I didn’t even know CND still existed, but trust the BBC to find one of their suppoerters !


  3. deegee says:

    Have you considered the possibility that Ellie Harrison is just too dumb to know? She probably has a cute ‘freedom scarf’ AKA keffiya in her drawer right next to the Che Guevara t-shirt she no longer wears. “That’s just too 2008”!

    The directors/producers should have stopped her.


    • Asuka Langley Soryu says:

      That would be my thought on the matter. The person who dresses her (probably called a Wardrobe Application Technician or something) for her TV work is probably a scary-looking dyke, Millie Tant lookalike.

      I’m going to give Ellie the benefit of the doubt. Why? Because she’s hot, that’s why.

    Anyone bothered to complain about it yet? 


  5. dave s says:

    Of all the BBC’s output the One Show is a strong contender for the very worst. Does anybody take it and it’s presenters seriously? I agree with Deegee- she probably has no idea what the symbol means. Best ignored as should be the programme


  6. Bob says:

    As Deegee and Dave say – she probably doesn’t know, especially as it’s a popular symbol for peace, probably just a fashion thing, it’s quite common for trendy people to wear retro clothes – a few years ago it was those ‘cool’ che guevara drawings, I rarely met a person who understood even who he was, let alone his politics

    If she’s an actual member of CND then there might be an issue


  7. D B says:

    According to the biography on her website she studied geography at King’s College London “specialising in biogeography and third world political ecology”, but I concede that’s no guarantee that she isn’t an airhead (her pre-printed bio includes the line “Ellie grew up in living off the land in rural Gloucestershire” which suggests proofreading isn’t a strong point). If she really is unaware that it’s a CND symbol (and is everybody on the production team equally dumb?) then what we have is a vacuous right-on bimbo with the political maturity of a slightly rebellious 15-year-old employed as a reporter for a primetime current affairs magazine show. Oh well, that’s all right then.


  8. Phil says:

    What does living off the land mean in this case? Daddy is a rich farmer who sent me to public school so I stood a good chance of a job at the BBC?

    Possibly. It wasn’t unusual for CND members to be well-heeled country types with too much time on their hands.


  9. googleborg says:

    it’s just a t-shirt.


    • deegee says:

      Would it be just a t-shirt to the BBC if it had the a Swastika, a Star of David, the name of Allah, a black-face Minstrel or a Crusader Cross on it? Or would it be a firing offence?

      I still stick with my she ‘didn’t know the significance’ speculation but that doesn’t make a television presenter wearing a shirt with an iconic symbol of a particular P.O.V. insignificant.


      • Tarquin says:

        I would argue those things are far more obviously partisan – the symbol is an iconic peace sign around the world, with symbolism well outside the CND movement, it seems permissible to me


  10. Philip says:

    It is only me that thinks she looks like she’s limbering up for a big dump?
    Or were you all waiting for Martin to say it first? 😉


  11. Grant says:

    DB 14:39

    “Political ecology” is certainly a new one on me !


  12. George R says:

    Animal rights’ activist Brigitte Bardot wouldn’t have got much of a look in at the BBC:

    ” Brigitte Bardot faces jail for anti-Muslim slur”


  13. Pounce says:

    The question we should be asking is;
    Would the bBC have allowed her to go on air if she had worn a Union flag T-shirt?


  14. Travis Bickle says:

    Hot?  She’s fat!


  15. Travis Bickle says:

    If that’s what passes for fit, you need to get out more often mate.  The table she’s sitting on is bowing under her weight.

      LOL – Yeh right.

      This from someone who takes his monicker from a socially retarded psychotic disfunctionary!
