Brown is not even Prime Minister yet, but one of his 'cronies', - Sir Michael Lyons - is appointed today to head the BBC !! Together with the Bank of England, this must be one of the most important appointments in Great Britain. Guess who has a real pal in the Bank of England ? - yes, Gordon Brown !! The crony's name: Sir John Gieve, who was a 'failed' but very senior civil servant in the Home Office. His appointment was described as; ".....pure Gilbert & Sullivan". The latest travesty I describe as wholly, totally, completely, utterly UNACCEPTABLE. When will this disgusting administration be given its marching orders ? When it is, I hope the incoming government will 'sack' all these people, including Mandelson.
