    Will the BBC ever put Gordon Brown on trial? I think we know the answer to that. 


  2. John Horne Tooke says:

    Did they not also have a programme called Democracy on Trial?

    There seems to be an agenda here, but I just can’t seem to see it. Maybe Scot can help.


  3. Martin says:

    I’m sure we will get the following on trial πŸ™‚

    Homosexuality on trial

    Islam on trial

    Socialism on trial

    The BBC on trial

      Serial dog foulers on trial. πŸ™‚

      Global Warming on Trial.

      The EU on Trial.


      • London Calling says:

        Lawyers on Trial?

        No, better still, judges on Trial?

        Thirteen European Court of Human Rights judges today were each sentenced to thirty year prison sentences for permitting convicted murderers to be freed to kill again, to protect their Rights to enjoy a family life. Most had killed their families.

    How many days on the hamster wheel will Dhimmiby Minor have to do in order to pedal his wind turbine, by way of  apology to Gaia?
    All those airmiles fluttering aimlessly round the Amazon Basin…at our expense too of course.
    By my reckoning that ought to keep him off the God-forsaken bucket of warm slops that is Any Questions up `til Chrsitmas…Is there Any Point might be the one he ought to ask?
    No of course not…he`s a Dimbleby in`ne?


  5. Millie Tant says:

    You may  be surprised to learnt that this is not Dimbleby’s first South American jaunt.

    According to Wiki

    In 1978 he wrote and presented the ITV series Jonathan Dimbleby In South America.

    Fast forward a mere thirty years or so and we find in 2011 a series for the Beeboid Corporation, called  A South American Journey with Jonathan Dimbleby

    Oh, well a fellow has to keep his name up there and at the same time a little bit of dusting down and recycling can only be helpful to the planet, no?

    “Unique funding” on trial?

    The defence for a system of compelled support without option would be interesting.


  7. Joe Geary says:

    Palestinians on Trial.

    Nah, just dreaming


  8. London Calling says:

    Ambulance-chasing compensation lawyers on trial (No Win No Fee!)


  9. David Holland says:

    Did Jonathon mention that Venezuela is far more violent than Colombia?
    Although the situation in Colombia is not great it is far better than Venezuela despite Venezuela funding terrorists in Colombia.
    Surely only a socialist could spend money destabilising another country but still have worst crime in his own country?


  10. ltwf1964 says:

    me and the mrs laughed out loud when the line “despite climate change” was slipped in when the mention was made of the year long rainy season

    nearly made me want to pay the licence tax…….no not really πŸ˜‰


  11. Will says:

    According to this BBC “analysis” there is no downside to the UK borrowing more & printing more ££ (eg “There is no limit to how much cash the Bank can print”) – that Osborne is such a wimp. Is this capitalism at work or just Balls supporting propaganda?



  12. David Preiser (USA) says:

    I so wish I could find footage of Mark Mardell’s reporting during the last EU elections, when he was still Europe editor.  It was shortly after the financial crisis hit in 2008.  The results showed much of Europe leaning back to the right, and Mardell openly expressed his astonishment that people weren’t stampeding towards Socialism because Capitalism had so obviously (to him) failed.

    It was an ideological display, and predicted his biased performance in his current job.


    • London Calling says:

      All of the money that goes into Mark Mardell’s bank account at the end of the month originates at first or second hand from Capitalism. He is typically BBC First Class Hipocrite: all of them biting at the hand that feeds them.
