Speaking for myself, I, like many others on here, have no love for Boris but objected to your apparent lack of understanding of how government works. Evem as PM, he could not override or interfere with, various committee decisions. I have no particular feelings one way or another about Mr. Lineker. He was a decent footballer and is an o.k. pundit. I think he gets paid far too much but i also think many others do too, even those I admire.However,I doubt any of us would object if we had an agent who could negotiate a great pay deal. As an avid radio4 listener, I object to the way the BBC is trying to get rid of the likes of Clive Myrie, Sophie Rayworth et al to replace them with younger, cheaper, presenters.
It's a great pity the right of free speech isn't based on the obligation to say something sensible.

And I object to the constant patronising attitude I receive every time MY point of view is made. FTR I’m well aware of the fact Johnson was not able to overrule some legislation, my complaint and that of many many right minded people was about his constant lies, deceit and attempts to weasel his way out of situations he’d been found out about.
Anyway I’ll be back on my laptop soon hopefully so I’ll be around more for these little fits of angst. 😀
The BBC's London headquarters in Langham Street has been vandalised. The BBC has come under fire after refusing to brand Hamas 'terrorists' amid the conflict between the group and Israel. It has not been confirmed whether the vandalism is related to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, but protests are scheduled in London and other cities across the UK for later today. Daily Mirror

Years ago the first news app I would look at daily would be the BBC one, not now. Nowadays I usually sample the front pages of the DT, Gruniad, Mail, Mirror and the Sky News app for opinions to what is happening, followed by local press, Sundays my go to is the ST.
I've just watched 'A View from a Hill' a 2005 BBC television film based on M. R. James's short story and thoroughly enjoyed it. The sound & diction was perfect. I didn't need subtitles for once. In contrast, the BBC has been roasted for their adaptation of Enid Blyton's Famous Five output.
