Unless you’re Tony Blair’s bum-chum, then you obviously accept that the BBC was right in the whole Hutton scenario, and that any suggestion otherwise is a whitewash. One of the more proficient Whitehall whitewashes, but a whitewash nontheless.
It’s been pointed out that when the government cheated and lied in order to stitch up the BBC, having bribed Lord Hutton, the supposed checks and balances went for slaughtering everyone concerned – and Greg Dyke also resigned.
Despite sharing responsibility for the far worse fuckup of, err, Iraq, Gordon Brown didn’t. And unsurprisingly – if i were faced with that kind of “yes, we’ll go against the will of the British people, even though they’re actually quite crazy-fascist in their own right” – in order to support the stupid, reviled cunt who’s bought himself into the Presidency – Mr Brown is now less popular than anyone… except for the only other candidates, Tony and John Reid.
What’s the end point? I don’t know. Given that David Cameron is the worst scumbag I’ve ever heard of or encountered, on any level whatsoever, I’m concerned. Given that Gordon Brown is the best chancellor of the exchequer that we’ve ever had, I’m slightly less concerned. But weirdly, daft righty cunts who ought to be grateful are far more annoyed by Mr Brown’s impending leadership than people who, y’know, are actually poor and who might welcome some kind of socialist, redistributionist person, which Mr Brown certainly isn’t.
