Dental Injuries Feared As BBC Announce UKIP Successes through Gritted Teeth
(6 posts) (4 voices)
Why the BBC? I think that's where you're confusing people.
From here, it looks like the BBC is being as fair as ever: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk/
Here are their headlines - were you thinking they'd be biased?
* Farage hails UKIP's 'remarkable' night
* UKIP hail 'brilliant' result
* Robinson: UKIP 'clowns' have last laugh
I think the gritted teeth and arse might be in Downing Street... :-)
You could be right.
The BBC, now that UKIP has a quarter of the votes, has - like many other commentators - at last stopped trying to belittle or even ignore the party in the hope that they would go away.
And - regardless of whether you like UKIP and its policies or not - it's got to be admitted that its leader has been very smart (in a Boris Johson kind of way) in not appearing to take himself too seriously or to get in the least bit upset by insults about "clowns" or "fruitcakes".
As lovers of satire know, it's easy to mock the pompous, the self-important and the desperately-earnest-but-misguided; far harder when a leader is comparatively laid back, however much you may hate him and his politics.
Can you imagine how much more dangerous Hitler would have been, if he had been witty?
yes. At last a decent sub from you right of centre chappies. Irrespective of whether it's true it's funny. I think an emergency first aid post for clenched buttocks and eyebrow injuries should be set up at Broadcasting House, and clothespegs/noseclips given out to presenters who will now have to interview Nigel Farage more often
That's the end of invites to appear on "Question Time" for Nick Griffin.
I believe Mr Griffin leads a different party.
