I bet he can light his own farts, though . . .
When I first met @re-stilly he was vegetarian. The next time I saw him, he was air-drying his own meat.If I was him I'd be more concerned about spontaneous ignition of those.
But they are covering it, and giving Ruthie a decent bit of airtime. I got a strong sense of the Beeb feeling the need to cover it, but unsure which way to slant it.For "some reason" Auntie still can't bring itself to mention the most pertinent part of the current Sturgeon/Salmond sandwich - to whit, that Big Mammy lied to the Scottish parliament.
The Alex Salmond inquiry and the political stink at Holyrood
Instead, it's all about his wider conspiracy theory, which - while possible - seems far less clear cut than the porkies told to Scot Parl.
How can this be?
And now Laura's in on the act - but again the resignation issue is "brushed over". Inexplicably.
It's the total absence of discussion of the potentially nailed-on resignation issue that is curious. The evidence is already out there, yet is not mentioned. Can you imagine one of HMGs tory ministers being given such a free pass?

The link now saysIt's XXXXXXX depressing, not funny. The license fee paid by the British public is now being used to actively discourage the usage of correct English in Africa, because it's "more inclusive".

Well done you do-gooding virtue signallers, well done.

Apologies for self quoting but top of the ITN news.I suppose that a better way of putting it was that they came across as unaccustomed to neutral coverage.
I fully expect the pack instincts to come to the fore now, as others look sideways, see the Beeb covering it, thinking it must be important and therefore we need to feature it, then the inevitable "oooo ahhh" race to the bottom.
