The BBC coverage...

I have been watching the BBC coverage for a few hours, shooting the breeze with sundry mates via IM, gobbing off on Guido's chat room etc etc. Anyway, being lucid just briefly:

WHY in the name of all the gods I cannot believe in are the BBC running with a sub-adult presentation of the results? ANYONE watching results at 2.11 in the morning is either channel hopping from the home shopping channels, or more likely is a hopeless political obsessive who is jumping up and down watching the results. And the diamonique window lickers do not care if the presentation would be insulting to viewers of the Teletubbies, and the HPOs do not need to be patronises by this idiotic presentation of a serious news story. Like sensible people everywhere, I swear at the Today programme, Newsnight etc etc and am utterly used to the institutional leftism of the BBC (I would be watching Sky, but my host has limited channel access), but even Labour toadies want to be treated as though they have functioning brains, yes? On the basis of this debacle, we are deep into licence revocation territory.

I would go on, but drink has been taken.

Just what I had been thinking, but not as well versed.

I gave up watching it a long time ago, the internet provides all the raw information without the spin.

LFT - True. I was switching between Dale, Fawkes, Con Home, Betfair etc with the TV on in the background.

Couldn't agree more.

Sorry to say I allowed myself to get wound up by Tony King as well, before returning to the comfort of Sky.
