O how unfit?

Tonight may be Burns Night, when we, with our honest, sonsie faces, toast the haggis with YouTube videos of bagpipes and a more-than-wee dram of Aldi red. But others, some named after lesser poets, are busy toasting Nancy Pelosi (of all people):

You'll probably have guessed that Milton is a BBC journalist - to be precise a "BBC News Analyst/Correspondent (Views are mine not of the BBC)". And, yes, he's a proper BBC journalist, featured across BBC outlets.

"BBC News Analyst/Corespondent." They're blatant & they don't care any more because they know there's no chance of punishment. Anyone who claims the BBC is impartial is a liar.
Rabbie Burns, on reading Milton's tweet, might have said, "Ha! whaur ye gaun, ye crowlin ferlie? Your impudence protects you sairly." 

But, as DB says, it sairly the BBC that protects Milton's crowlin impudence here.


  1. I love the way DB tells it straight.
    Off topic: For some reason, mention of Rabbie Burns reminded me there was a Cumbrian sheep farmer on Desert Island Discs this morning - perhaps because both farmers.

  2. We've been saying here for months that the BBC bias has become brazen. How could the BBC discipline Milton when senior figures like Maitlis, Husain, Ahmed, Robinson, Kay, Kurcher, Wendling, Mardell, Bryant and Sopel have displayed so much bias without reprimand of any kind?

    The bias has now gone ballistic.
