Pondering, and while slightly more optimistic than we once were, still really quite unhappy Lefty thread

Where had we got to? We'd agreed that we all love Cameron, right?

I like cameron.

He seems like a good egg and the hammy aroma is invigorating.

policywonk · 08/05/2010 17:31

Mmmmm, pineapply

This is great - Sky News heckled to a break by the protestors. 'Sack Kay Burley! Watch the BBC!'

Beachcomber · 08/05/2010 17:33

Hameron is a top bloke IMO. I am very pleased with what he has delivered in this election .

Ewe · 08/05/2010 17:37

I just saw that pol, it's brilliant! She is utterly useless.

DP predicts a successful LD/Con coalition followed by spending cuts, sorting of the economy so that they can sweeten deal for voters at next election with tax cuts. He also thinks that there might never be another Labour government if this coalition works well! Not so sure about that.

I would quite like to just give tories enough rope to hang themselves so that Labour have some time to regroup and look at strategy and then win next election!

... and a few mushrooms and fish fingers.

Sorry to invade on private grief, but in this era of coalitions and consensus, I think if there is one thing leftwingers and rightwingers can agree on, it is that Kay Burley is terrible.

She is utterly stupid and vacuous.

I feel robbed - I know nothing of Kay Burley. I'm going to have start watching Sky News just for the entertainment value.

Justa - glad DS3 is OK. Mr Justa is being very resilient with his chip-making; my DH lay on the sofa wincing in a martyred way for what felt like months after his de-bagging.

someone mention me?

DavidHameron · 08/05/2010 18:04

I saw Kay Burley interview one of the demo-ers.
She was appallingly biased. I know it's Sky and they don't care but really truly bad journalism. Paxo is allowed because we know he does it to everyone.

ImSoNotTelling · 08/05/2010 18:04

Just put sky news on to see what the fuss is about

longfingernailspaintedblue · 08/05/2010 18:07

I don't think Sky is that biased (as we were discussing on this thread)

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/politics/959539-Who-do-Channel-4-amp-ITV-support

Sky has more overtly biased presenters, both left and right though. Adam Boulton is definitely Tory, Glen O'Glaza is definitely Labour. Overall, though, and despite Murdoch, I don't see its coverage as leaning more one way than the other.

Every night on the paper review they always have one leftie and one rightie - not always the case at the BBC.

longfingernailspaintedblue · 08/05/2010 18:07

ITV News is much more pro-Tory than Sky.

ImSoNotTelling · 08/05/2010 18:10

Bollocks didn't get very far

Is cbeebies again now

I'm surprised about Boulton: I thought he was a massive mate of all the senior Labour politicians...?

policywonk · 08/05/2010 18:25

Married to Anji Hunter, who used to be Blair's brain. So, almost certainly a Tory

longfingernailspaintedblue · 08/05/2010 18:26

Yes, I don't mean Tory in a party loyalty way. His wife was a senior member of Tony Blair's staff - but he is basically a rightwinger who was fond of Blair - just like me really.

DavidHameron · 08/05/2010 18:28

Anyway longfingernails, you can bugger off now you've made yer Burley point

Back to yer vair boring and underactive Anxious Tories thread and defending the markets against George Galloway coolfonz...

longfingernailspaintedblue · 08/05/2010 18:29

OK - see you later! Enjoy watching your faux protest

PfftThePinkoLeftyDragon · 08/05/2010 18:30
