What’s All The Fuss About?

Heavy day’s telly watching Mr. Murdoch trying out his Uriah Heap impersonation and also being attacked by an interloper armed with a custard pie! Well done that man!

The saner, or perhaps more cynical, amongst us do wonder what all the fuss is about. If anybody thinks private detectives, journalists and police officers, to name but three as they are the ones surfing the tide of scandal hysteria at the moment, will not go to any ends by whatever means to turn a dishonest buck, then they probably believe all the bullshit the apprentice contestants come out with too.

The whole thing was put into a timely perespective last night in the new drama series The Hour.
Thrusting young journalist happens upon a report of a mysterious death, being treated as a robbery with violence.
Along he goes to the police station, slips the desk sergeant a fiver, it is set in 1956, and weigh hey, he’s looking at the corpse, discovering it still has its wallet on it and is hot on the trail of a mystery.

Now either the writer was particularly prescient or this stuff goes on all the time. Which do you think?

Cable Says Dance Competition "Bent As A Boxing Day Turd."

Vince Cable, the ballroom dancing big mouth business minister in the coalition government has been talking to a Boggart Blog undercover reporter who was disguised as water dripping from an iclcle about failure to win the Stictly Come Dancing special on Christmas Day. The star of Torchwood, John Barrowman won the competition.

Kandi the Kelpie secretly recorded Cable in his dressing room after the show. Mistaking her for meltwater as he looked out of the window the minister told Kandi,

“It was a stitch up. Everyone knows these things are bent as a Boxing Day turd. That knob Barrowman has two left feet but he’s well in at the BBC isn’t he? The Beeb is full of shirt lifters and they stick together. Well I’ve fixed those Jeremys, now that chinless wonder Hunt has to make the decision about Moloch Murdoch taking complete control of BskyB he’s certain to cave in because I’ve given the New of the World some dirt on him.

I can bring the coalition down anytime, me. You think Cameron and arse nose Osborne are running the show? Ha! They’re just puppets, I, Vince Cable, am really in charge. I’m on very good terms with the leaders of the New World Order too. Oh yes, Today BskyB, tomorrow the world …

We learned in the last few minutes Mr. Cable has been advived by doctors to take a long holiday.
