In response to Kathy Gyngell: Cameron opens Pandora’s Box by trying to appease the mob, chrisH wrote:
I am hopeful that the BBC, universities, quangos, charity wonks and broadsheet hacks will be higher up the agenda…remember that a Tory duck house turned quickly enough into Jacqui Smith’s hubby’s porn stash.
This may well happen here – all it takes is for a got-at MP to ask (BBC broadcasters) Mishal, Marr or Evan: ‘well then, where is YOUR tax return?’
Cue collapse of the whole edifice – the “ever so ‘umble public servant seeking truth from power” meme of the media is gone, and at least MPs didn’t let Savile swing through their dressing rooms for thirty plus years as the Beeb did.
Thornberry, Benn, Miliband, etc ought to be very careful – it’s all coming soon, popcorn at the ready.
Cameron may have made it harder for Fraser Nelson, but he’s done us a service here – nobody cares about a late dad’s bequest, but a hate-filled Left who quietly make their deeds of variation in the shadows…
Cameron’s a prat and his MPs will hate him for his hypocrisy since 2010…but the Left and the BBC will soon be reminded of their own double dealings. Ken Livingston 2012, work across from there!
