Great Grandmother – ”BBC Stinks”.

Iain Duncan Smith.  His speech thrilled my mother.

I bought my 81 year old mother a new TV for her birthday as she couldn’t cope with the new digital channel change on her old TV.  Result is that she’s been glued to the Conservative Party conference, sending me daily snippets by email.

Today’s one liner sums it all up better than any other blog post or news report I’ve seen elsewhere as follows –

no mention of Duncan Smith on the main news or Michael Gove—-BCC—-stinks—-just going on about cuts.

She should have worked in the communications industry.   Her emails are rarely more than a line long, pithily giving the story for each day.  Why do her phone conversations always last half an hour, though?  That’s the  puzzle.  Her writing is only limited by poor eyesight (BCC = BBC), and is nothing short on understanding.

By the time great grandmothers can see that the BBC is trying to hijack the news agenda, and not tell the story, it is surely getting close to the moment when Cameron can take a big axe to the corporation, and no one will shed any tears.

    The game of offering and taking away has gone on since time immemorial. It wasn’t invented by Cameron. He has to keep hope alive in all his constituencies. Only events will decide what actually happens.

    I can see that you still maintain your faith in Cameron, but I’m afraid I never had any faith in him from the outset and so far I’ve seen nothing to change my mind.

    I think both the BBC and our ever closer relationship with the EU will be safe on his watch, with or without the coalition.

    He is truly the heir to Blair.

    I have always stated that my loyalty to Cameron is conditional. But I have also stated that getting rid of Labour was number one, which you rather seem to take for granted. UKIP very nearly enabled Labour to hold power. That I question the sanity of.

    One step at a time.
