Lowlights from the BBC's landing page today:
  • "10 ways you can be an LBGTQ+ Straight Ally"; @.@
  • "Hilarious Drag Race challenge has RuPaul in stitches"; :pukel:
  • "Who Won Junior Bake Off";
  • "The actresses speaking out over being difficult".
What utter tosh content. Will the last sane person to leave the BBC please switch off the lights...:crash:

You're getting your socks mixed up, mate.

This one is supposed to lap up all that guff.

The Beeb currently makes me wish that Trump would make a comeback. It's wall to wall wailing about the pandemic.

No heartstrings untugged.
 
It's wall to wall wailing about the pandemic.
A "news special" on BBC1 whinging and wailing non-stop.

"Oooooh there's a South African variant loose in the community - we're dooooomed". Expect subsequent tag-line trying to blame Boris Grrr for not closing the borders.

"Oooooooh the IFS says every child will be £40000 worse of because of the pandemic". EXpect subsequent tag-line that it's all Boris' fault for closing the schools. Grrr.

They're probably gagging for Captain Tom to be a victim as well for some more communal shroud-waving.

And nary can the Beeb find (though they are are trying ever so hard) a young victim of the 'Rona who didn't have severe underlying health issues.

Memo to Auntie; anorexics, diabetics, recovering heroin users et al count as "having underlying health issues".
 
Our cable service just ditched BBC Canada. What a honking, steaming, pile it was. How many episode of Top Gear and Father Brown can be rerun on a permanent loop? Graham Norton, for the love of sweet baby Jesus, they really hated us Colonials.
I think there was one chap shoved in BBC closet space #382 given a budget of $27 and told to broadcast BBC Canada. He died in 2011 his skeleton remains are still in said closet with his long dead bones jamming the perma send and repeat button.

A VPN is the answer.

I remember when Norton did his first series of show in the US called the Graham Norton Effect.

He had all the big stars on (Hartnett, Voight, Rock, Sharon Stone etc.) but he just carried on as though he was on his regular Friday night show in the UK where half the audience were expected to be pissed and smut was compulsory.

It was quite funny watching all the Yank celebs jaws drop open as they sat there thinking 'did he really just say that live on TV?'

Liz Kendall on BBC now saying closures do not go far enough.
Dodged question about congratulating the government on the vaccine roll out and had a go at the government about care home staff vaccinations.
Dodged question about Labour plans for easing lockdown but banged on about vaccinating teachers as a priority.

And as my Doctor is fond of telling me, "We are all terminal".

Who did win Junior Bake Off? Some of them were bloody good.

Funny that. They've just eased the restrictions on gatherings and alcohol sales here in SA.

They've decided there's no hope for SA and you might as well get pissed while waiting for Armageddon...

(He then meanders down the Old Kent Road, softly singing Knees Up Mother Brown whilst hoping to find a troupe of cheeky Cockernee chimney sweeps that all spontaneously start singing and dancing)
