Is it too late to say how much I hate The Cunt Alan Sugar?

Fuck me. I would say that's a new low for the BBC but it's actually bang on trend. Ministry of Truth dickheads.

Just donated a few quid to the Good Law Project as that article's pissed me off. Can someone let Sunak know I'm not just swimming about in my "riches" like Scrooge McDuck, ta.

Never.

He launched Katie Hopkins on the world, that's bad enough.

On their ticker tape page:

15,526 COVID Tests carried out in Dover and only 35 positive.

Well not tested because displaying symptoms and  if extrapolate that to full population of UK it would be around 150,000 postive cases which would be extremely high for a random population.

So don't know why they use the word ONLY in headline.

Not strictly BBC News website related, but another BBC employee writing in a right wing paper complaining things are not right wing enough:

I thought they were meant to show impartiality.

the piece isn't really about that, I doubt he wrote the header. it's just Justin Webb (who's always been an america correspondent) saying it's time to get sensible now we have a sensible man

it's very BBC centrist. it's also horseshit

This is absolutely staggering. You can feel that opening sentence straining under the extent to which it's been contorted to make the poor law-breaking government the victim in all this. Don't know anything about the journalist but it does have the feel of being imposed on an otherwise straightforward article by an insane editor.

Like frajer, I have been subscribed to the Good Law Project for a while and if anyone's got a few spare quid (perhaps your lapsed Labour membership fee?) that could be a good place to put it. They have spent the last year doing their best to provide the country with an actual, forensic opposition.
