Media oligarch James Murdoch, Damien to Rupert’s Lucifer, has given a key note speech at the Edinburgh Television Festival about the future of  “media”.  He seems to suggest that the license fee isn’t value for money because the BBC actually give away too much free content ???

Yes, predictably he attacks Daddy’s “nemesi” hurling cliched brickbats at familiar targets such as the BBC, Virgin Media, your Aunt Joyce and anybody who might not wish to embrace the Sky TV “lifestyle choice philosophy” of a  KFC bucket of deep fried chickens feet, “Nuts” and “Zoo” laddishness, lots of piss weak overpriced lager and Tim Lovejoy-lite presenters  (if  Tim Lovejoy-lite is achievable Sky will excel baby! ).  Oh and “The expansion of state-sponsored journalism is a threat to the plurality and independence of news provision.” Bless, Daddy must be so proud whilst perfecting that comb-over to hide the three sixes on his noggin  and unlike Virgin Media and BT who objected to Government proposals  to punish illegal downloaders by switching off their Internet connection, Jim-bob wholeheartidly supports  such draconian action .. In fact he  thinks they should be executed, live on a new Sky TV reality show “Britains Stupidest Downloaders Who Pay a TV License Fee Whilst Don’t Subscribe To  Sky”

But some of us don’t actually see Sky TV” as a force for good….

MP’s forced to live on “rations” says Duncan

Politics

Alan Duncan, the Tory frontbencher who has redinfined the pharse “arrogant f*ck-wit” and has an unfortunate habit of producing verrbal diarrohea on an alarmingly regular basis, has said that MPs are being treated like “shits” and forced to live on “rations” following the expenses scandal. (see story here)

Let’s recap what millionaire oil trader Alan considered legitmate expenses before public fury put a temporary halt to the gravy train.  He claimed £4,000 in  gardening costs which included £598 to overhaul a ride-on lawn-mower and then a further £41 to fix a puncture.  He also had an earlier claim in of £3,194 for gardening expenses rejected by the fees office, which wrote to Mr Duncan suggesting that the claim might not be “within the spirit of the rules .” Pfft ,what’s a boy to do ?

So the next time you’re sweating over paying a credit card bill, redundancy or where to make cuts in the household budget, spare a thought, or maybe even a bob or two for your MP,  don’t treat them with contempt, don’t label them unctuous, grasping, selfish, greedy out of touch shits …… times are hard in Westminister these days-have a heart.
