Boaden Beats Her Own World Record


Well you can`t teach an old dog new tricks and the BBC is a very mangy old mutt indeed. Perhaps the most irritating flea on the back of the aforesaid canine is Helen Boaden.. Auntie’s director of news quite clearly detests the Conservative Party and seeks to discredit them by her warped presentation at every turn.
Over the weekend Conservative ideas to clean out the Augean Stables Labour have made out of welfare were blushingly unveiled. In particular the national joke called ‘incapacity benefit or in the vernacular ... ‘lying’. Now you might think the first person to express an opinion might be ...oo I don`t know .... David Cameron? Ah yes but that is because you are not a trained journalist entrusted with the tax payers money and vested with a responsibility to produce impartial coverage.
With her infinitively superior sagacity Ms Boaden swerved such tired conventions and went straight to the opinion of Peter Hain who of course called it “ ‘Unfunded , plagiarised and ..”so on.. How a plan to get people of benefits can be unfunded is something of a mystery although the allegation of plagiarising is not. After Labour’s pantomimic prat-fall over Inheritance tax , they are clearly getting their retaliation in first .You could scarcely hear the Conservative ideas above the babble of complaining charity representatives, funded , no doubt, by the government . I sat hardly able to believe my ears that so soon after the disgraceful BBC hatchet job on John Redwood, Boaden was once again performing like a coiffured circus poodle for the benefit of her kindly master Mr. Brown.
The last time she did this she was obliged to apologise thanks to the efforts if Iain Dale to expose the corrupted standards of the Beeb but even then , she tried to wriggle out of it .She issued a partial apology but denied a suggestion by Dale that the coverage had begin with the words “ The Labour Party has today criticised ..” by giving a list of examples to demolish his flimsy case.. Technically she had a point but in reality she did not . Private Eye reported that the examples she picked DID contain Labour Party criticism in the first twenty seconds and quoted each in full. Th fact that she was prepared to slither along with an "economical " verion of the truth shows better than the original crime how little she can be trusted

I believe she has beaten her own world record for getting Labour Party criticism into a Conservative announcement. C0ngratulations Helen . I cannot say how much I admire you I only want to knowwhat you have been promised. Access , like Andrew Marr ? News , or is ot good old fashioned money in the form of some sinecure like so many other Beeb grovellers.

I agree with your comments on the coverage but I'm afraid you have gone on Charlie's hit list for 'taking the name of a poodle in vain'. He really is sick of all the worst people in our society being linked with perfectly decent intelligent dogs.

Sorry Charlie !

Excellent, Mr N! The disgraceful BBC coverage of this news had me dragging myself out of my sickbed and stomping feverishly around my flat cursing. How I hate the BBC! DC should announce thta he will cut the licence fee year on year for his first 5 years _ and then put state broadcasting out to tender. I'd choose Sky _ the only halfway decent tv news outlet we have left....

Well said that man!

What you've here adumbrated is why I have my bedside clock-radio set to wake me to the Today programme. It's a bit like peristalsis in plants; the damn programme gets my blood pressure so high that I'm able to become vertical again in the morning.
