    He really cannot conceive of any viewpoint that does not fit his as legitimate. He and his ilk are at war with the reality of a world in which there are a multiplicity of viewpoints. Thus the demonising of the Daily Mail- they all do it almost as a reflex action- and the Murdoch press.
    It is a belief system he is defending. Facts and realities are an inconvenience and there to be either ignored or pilloried.

    What a load of cobblers.
    See Chris is plugging his new wares at the end of the “column”

    Isnt “Nintendo” a trademark by the way? Will he be sending 300 squid?
    I think we should be told.

    The thought of the BBC  “running scared” had me laughing. If only !
    By the way, there is a West African female singer by the name of “Titi”.
    I wonder if she is related.

    Brilliant! This is the closest I’ve ever come to being involved with a powerful anything.

    Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL blogsite!

    I think he’s just worried that our legtimate questions might derail his gravy train.

    “a kick-arse bunch of A-listers from the world of funny including Robin Ince, Mitch Benn, Mark Steel and Alistair MacGowan.”


    he got the structure of that sentence completely back to front,didn’t he?

    should have read “a bunch of z list “comedians” who need their arses kicked”

    a mong writing in a commie bumwipe rag defending the BBC

    kind of wraps it all up nicely,doesn’t it?

    Well I’m confused. Surely he is not including Mitch Benn as one of the “performers from within the left-wing diaspora”? It seems only days since we were being told on this site that we should not be making assumptions as to Mitch Benn’s political views.

    He just pissed off because he was sent packing with a metaphorical boot up his arse, and no 300 quid.  Complete arse.

    Shouldn’t that read “a fart arse bunch of A-lickers from the world of un-funny?”

    A stunningly good party political broadcast (well, YouTube) by Marcus Brigstocke on behalf of the Green Party:

    That’s me convinced. I’m voting Green.

    For heaven’s sake, he is so stupid that he does not see that in clearly identifying the BBC with the left wing he blows a hole thought the beeboids claims of impartiality.

    However I suppose he is one of those totalitarian types who sees the centre ground of politics as somewhere between Trotsky and Tony Benn.

    We should embarce this boy, he is a great weapon for us.

      Exactly. When we point out the obvious – that the favoured BBC comedians have left-wing tendencies – we get denials and accusations of McCarthyism. But it is simply a matter of fact which they acknowledge when their guard is down on their home turf. The other point that this whole episode shows is once again how many at the BBC have difficulty treating the Greens as any other political party. I think these comedians are genuinely surprised that doing a benefit for the Greens could be seen as controversial or political, because they are subject to the same default “What could possibly be wrong with the Greens” attitude which you see right across the BBC. If you heard John Humphrys interviewing Caroline Lucas recently he didn’t ask one question about their policies, he just had a very weak discussion with her as to whether the electroral system is fair or not. The Green policies are just assumed to be an obviously good thing.

    He has a nerve to talk about morality doesn’t he when we all saw what a sick deviant thug he showed himself as when he appeared on this blog. I am sure he will fit in well at the BBC.

    Nice to see a member of the Scottish Parliament advertizing for a researcher/assistant in the Communist rag.
